With matches more than 11 months apart, Guyett will return to the ring this Saturday night for the City of Melbourne Wrestling. That’s exactly what Guyett did after a long hiatus in 2017 when he got his big break around the world when he wrestled a new Japanese pro wrestling superstar and future Hall of Famer Kazuchika Okada on the MCW show. Instead of moving his young family to America, fighting for the country, and finally getting a chance to showcase the skills he homed in Australia and Japan, he’s stuck here. Joe’s last televised match on WWE NXT was on December 8, 2016, when he failed to challenge for the NXT Championship in a steel cage match recorded in Melbourne, Australia.
Samoa Joe has not competed for NXT since defeating No Way Jose live in Dallas on January 27, 2017. The Incarnation of the Beast has not fought in WWE since April 2020, where he lost in the main event at the WrestleMania 36 event against Drew McIntyre. Melbourne is expected to be ready for the Section 1 Championship next weekend, where they will presumably be No. 1.
Lesnar will reignite their rivalry by challenging Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at the event, which includes two major WrestleMania events. Roman Reigns will defend his WWE Universal title with Brock Lesnar, rekindling their longstanding rivalry that includes two main events at WrestleMania. The steel cage match, which will be televised next week, has more stakes than any WWE event in Melbourne.
Instead of the usual chain-fighting moves, Joe and Nakamura begin to defeat each other like MMA fighters. Gradually, it turns into professional wrestling, but cruel even by their standards. Outside the ring, the crowd choke, spank, kick and humiliate the wrestlers. Inside, crowds of people line up on the polished wooden floor, surrounding the ring and watching the parade of wrestlers put on a prelude to the main event: Rob Van Dam vs. Sid Parker.
It’s a rare face-to-face encounter that rarely happens in the WWE. Even more than singles match, tag wrestling requires heels and clean faces. Whatever the costumes are, you still have to go there and fight. WWE can kick all they want because wrestling Melbourne clubs has never been stronger.
Making a career in professional wrestling in Australia is next to impossible simply because of the size of the market. But the wrestling Melbourne boom is still a secret to international wrestling fans in general. But in recent years, a real Australian wrestling identity has emerged. Indeed, the world’s largest wrestling company has a strong Melbourne City Wrestling presence, including Murphy, as well as Bronson Reid, Brendan Wink and Indy Hartwell, who made frequent appearances at the Thornbury Theatre before signing with Vince’s empire. McMahons.
Expect Mikey Nicholls to be greeted by heroes in the festival halls at this game; although Nicholls is from Perth, he travels around the world holding the national flag and he attended his first in Melbourne before joining NJPW and CHAOS A non-WWE match. And his partner Murphy, a former Melbourne City wrestling champion, maybe more underrated and more athletic. Rob Van Dam’s body slammed into them, immortalizing them on his chest, and dripped WWE-certified sweat onto the tarp at the Burwood Whitehorse club to the east. Billie Kay, who fought in Australia for the first time in two years, slipped into the ring, her silky translucent coat slipping down the ropes at the top.
Friday night, the Whitehorse Club opened its doors to one of wrestling’s most timeless figures. Voted twice as the most popular wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated readers, winner of 21 WWE Championships and the record holder for the longest WrestleManias streak, Rob Van Dam on The Turnbuckle is a weekly podcast from Melbourne dedicated to the Australian wrestling scene, and it’s an absolute treasure.
For those who don’t remember, the 2002 WWE Global Warning Tour was held in Melbourne and over 50,000 people watched the event live. This would surpass the biggest event that took place earlier this year when Pro Wrestling Australia (PWA) co-hosted a collaborative show with PROGRESS in Sydney, the first time Indy Down Under broke four figures. Located in Albert Park near Melbourne, the venue can hold up to 1,800 fans, making it the largest independent professional wrestling event in Australian history.
The event will be held at the Mohammed Abdou Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and will travel to the Middle East for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Crown Jewels event will take place in the US on Friday, October 22nd. It took place on October 6, 2018, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia and included ten matches, two of which involved Australian wrestlers Buddy Murphy and The Iconic.
The next time WWE came to Australia was in 2002 for the WWE Global Warning Tour, the first WWE event to be held in Australia in 16 years. WWF first visited Australia in 1985, visiting Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, and again in 1986 via Brisbane and Melbourne. It hosted the 1956 Olympic Games and the 2006 Commonwealth Games at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Australia’s largest outdoor venue.
The oath of officials at the Summer Olympics was first sworn in in 1972 in Munich. This is the only time in the century of the existence of the Games when the unity of time and place established in the Charter was not respected. This practice will take place for the next two editions of the Games.
Osprey instantly fell in love with the Australian scene and instantly fell in love with Robbie Eagles wrestling. Osprey and the Eagles’ past dates back to 2017 when a frustrated Osprey decided to train and fight in Australia as a distraction from home troubles.
He flew from Melbourne to Los Angeles preparing for his first pay-per-view performance with one of America’s biggest independent wrestling companies, Ring of Honor, after signing with them in late 2019. Matt Grippy of Fox Lane chose to compete at 152 lbs. At the end of the season, he was expected to take on John Jay Sr.’s Conor Melbourne heading to Princeton during Saturday’s Section 1 qualifier.
An irritating MCL was causing palpable pain, and although Melbourne bravely tried to continue the match, their coaches wisely decided to cancel it. Grippy scored with the first takedown, but Melbourne quickly squeezed his left knee. After the game, he asked God to put the belts up for a draw in Melbourne.
I wonder if it’s because we know who’s going to win or because the triple threat game is just a mess. Either way, Melbourne is home to many athletes including professional wrestlers who all once began at a wrestling school.
