TnT overcame the odds and reached new heights to claim back gold!

As expected, it was a brutal and bloody encounter this past Saturday at New Heights when two teams collided in a Ladder Match battle for the IPW Tag Team Championship, but it would be the team of TnT leaving with the gold and all the spoils at the end of the night.

In a match that saw a series of some of the most physical altercations in IPW history, the team of Cross & Henry set about using their intense attack, full throttle brawl tactics and The Investment numbers advantage to hold on to their gold. But everything AOC brought to the table at New Heights was countered by TnT with their heart, passion and unwillingness to surrender…but it would be the help from The Origin that would prove to be a decisive blow. Valentine & Alexander, in what has become their trademark, hopped the safety railing at ringside to even up the numbers game, creating an opportunity for TnT to grasp not only the gold, but a spot in the highly popular Origin group!

Historic Ladder Match set for New Heights!

The Agents of Change put their gold on the line in a Ladder Match!

The Agents of Change put their gold on the line in a Ladder Match May 17 at New Heights!

May 17 will see two teams collide in an historic first for New Zealand Professional Wrestling. With the IPW Tag Team Championship suspended high above the ring, TnT and The Agents of Change will put their bodies and careers on the line when they employ the use of ladders to grasp the gold!

It’s been the greatest tag team rivalry in New Zealand history, one that was born in kind with the rebirth of Impact Pro Wrestling in July last year and one that has seen each of the four men battered and bruised. But neither team could have imagined that the fate of their careers could be decided in a match designed to punish bodies and manipulate minds. Due to the intense physicality, Ladder Matches have been rare in Impact Pro Wrestling but it seems fitting that such a match is likely to put an end to an even rarer rivalry. Continue Reading

The Investment took control at Nightmare!

The Investment took control at Nightmare!

Travis Banks has been screwed out of a championship victory against Vinny Dunn by a new group known as The Investment.

Nightmare Before Xmas‘ Fans Bring the Weapons, IPW Championship main event began with a series of chops between champ Vinny Dunn and challenger Travis Banks.

Banks came out on top, and Dunn attempted to escape by running around the ring. Unfortunately, this was Fans Bring the Weapons; nowhere was safe.

As fast as Banks could reach for them, the strangest of weapons were being used to his advantage. A wooden tube, a toaster, a cabbage, and a Hulk hand were used in quick succession by the number one contender. A plastic table would then be used to prop Dunn up on the outside, allowing Banks to hit a devastating dropkick from the apron.

Eventually, Dunn managed to turn the match back around by forcing a ladder that Banks was going to use into his own face. Dunn would then hit a massive spear, but Banks was somehow able to kick out at the referee’s two-count.

Dunn would attempt to follow this up with the Muscle Buster, but Banks managed to roll through for a pinfall attempt and also getting a two-count. Continue Reading
