The Lion, The Threat And The Wardrobe!

Let’s take a look at the three candidates up for election to challenge Brook Duncan for the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship at September Selection!

Ever wanted to see a lion match up against a mako shark?  Then you might want to elect Paul Sayers to challenge for the gold. That Young Warrior has shown in previous encounters that he has the heart of a lion, and could very well be the perfect contender to match up against the mako like arsenal rush of Brook Duncan.

Dave O’Connor. Without a doubt the biggest potential threat on September 23 for Duncan. This former three time holder of the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship could be catapulted right back to the top of the mountain should he be elected. If so, the friendship of Duncan & O’Connor could be fractured in the pursuit for gold. Continue Reading

Ultimatum: What Are A Few Sins Between Friends?

Ultimatum will see the best in the North Island clash with the best in the South Island via tag team action!

F.I.S.T have ensconced themselves when it comes to tag team lore, their blitzkrieg offence coupled with an unparalleled nous inside the squared circle has seen them capture the imagination of fans all over New Zealand. They’ve made their own mark in history already, but on August 19 they face a challenge from the Deep South that will require all their heart to survive.

Deadly Sins rapid rise as a combination in Southern Pro Wrestling has been second to none, proving that when it comes to the history books, they will be more than just a foot note. They could very well be the whole book. Their determination, drive and desire to destroy F.I.S.T at Ultimatum could be their very first step at completely taking over the NZ Scene. Continue Reading

Ultimatum: Jagged Little Pill?

Two competitors at very different junctures in their career will diverge on the Mt Eden Hall to compete for the New Zealand Women’s Championship!

Since its introduction in 2012, Britenay has never been a stranger to the New Zealand Women’s Championship. In fact, since its inception, Britenay has racked up a record four Championship reigns which has solidified her stance as the foundation and measuring stick when it comes to female combat in this country. She has faced all challengers and dispatched them with precision physicality, but on August 19 she may face her toughest test from a newcomer looking to pave her own way into the history books.

The rapid rise of Candy Lee has been no fluke, her hard work and dedication to be the very best in that ring is a testament to her resolve and passion for the craft. But it’s her raw and often subterfuge animalistic physicality that is her greatest threat, a weapon that could see her dethrone Britenay and leave Ultimatum with the gold. Continue Reading

The Ultimate Match: Sax And Violence!

The Ultimate Match returns on August 19 as two men embroiled in a heated rivalry look to settle the score by racking up the falls!

New Zealand Heavyweight Champion James Shaw will put his gold on the line against Brook Duncan in a 30 minute Ironman battle that will see the first 20 minutes of the match contested under traditional rules, before the final ten minutes switches to no disqualification!

James Shaw will see The Ultimate Match at Ultimatum as the perfect opportunity to rid himself of Duncan forever. Criticized for his betrayal of Duncan earlier this year, Shaw has surrounded himself in a protective layer of physicality and ego with Elias and his father Alan Shaw, and has used that protection to plant his flag at the top of the IPW mountain.

Brook Duncan will see Ultimatum as his chance for redemption, his chance to erase the memory of having the Championship ripped from his hands by a vicious predator in James Shaw. Since that moment Duncan has been focused on the goal of getting back in the hunt for the New Zealand Heavyweight Championship, now that he is there, he must turn into the hunter if he is to leave with the ultimate prize.
