turf_girlsJust who is the rightful New Zealand Women’s Champion?

When Evie returned to Impact Pro Wrestling she had no questions about who the rightful champion should be. Evie. Britenay, as the interim champ, had something to say about the co-founder of Team Kick’s attitude. She punctuated her statement with the brutality the beauty is known for, but the question mark remained.

At the contract signing on the IPW Informer, the two committed to ending this dispute in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Rival Turf. Even this simple meeting disintegrated quickly into violence, so nothing will be held back when these violent femmes clash for the title. Continue Reading

Banks invokes rematch at Rival Turf!

fury_rivalControversy ruled at Trial by Combat when Fury cashed in his 2014 Eliminator Contract on a broken and beaten Travis Banks to become the new IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Champion. Now, two of the greatest in-ring competitors in New Zealand history will clash with an unwavering desire to be the best in the business at Rival Turf on August 30th.

At Trial by Combat, Banks survived. He navigated the shark infested waters of the Investment only to be thrown back into the deep end by the duplicitous Daniel Burnell and his former friend, Fury. Banks understands the credo of ‘whatever it takes’ when it comes to claiming the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship, but will this betrayal be the harpoon that pierces the very heart of what drives this former champion?

Trial by Combat ends with Fury on top!

fury_tbc“You will face your fear. And you will lose.” These words from IPW Director Daniel Burnell became prophecy for Travis Banks this past Saturday night at Trial by Combat.

The night started brutally with a Tables Match that pitted Travis Banks against Curt Chaos. Both men sought to end the match early by utilizing the tables around the ring, but it would ultimately be in the centre of the ring where the match would be decided. Banks powerbombed his challenger through a table, got the pin and the right to advance in the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship Gauntlet.

In the second phase, The Investment’s hopes were pinned on the perennial bruiser Pat Schisk to bring the championship back under Burnell’s control. Travis Banks refused to fall in line with Director’s plans and locked in the Lion’s Clutch to send Pat Schisk packing with no gold.

The stage was then set for the main event, where Banks prepared to defend his New Zealand Heavyweight Championship in a triple threat match against the Agents of Change, Jakob Cross and Aaron Henry. AOC took early control of the match as the fight spilled outside and Banks struggled to gain space from the double team attack. When the physicality returned to the ring, however, the momentum shifted and the champ began to show the Agents what getting down to business his way was all about. Continue Reading
