You can’t fight City Hall… but you can fight IN City Hall. At least if you’re Newcastle Pro Wrestling. Affectionately known as Newy Pro, one of NSW’s top promotions held their biggest show to date at Newcastle City Hall. Due to a couple of personal reasons that absolutely crushed me, my ticket went to waste and I was unable to attend. By all accounts though, it was a great time for the 500+ strong that packed the prestigious venue. Here’s what went down:
Headhunter Rig def. Chris Basso following a cannonball (the best in the business)
“Full Force” Mat Rogers def. Shayne Sheffield Sinclair with the pumphandle slam (HOSS BATTLE!)
CBK def. Parker Tomas, Charli Evans & Jimmy Townsend when Townsend took a devastating frog splash.
Mat Diamond def. Dazza to retain the Newy Pro Middleweight Championship following a low blow and a Diamond Cutter. Post-match, the Velocities and Mat Rogers put Dazza through a table with a powerbomb. Holy heel turn, Batman! That’s jarring after seeing Velocities exclusively work as good guys their whole career in PWA.
North Shore Wrestling (Jackson Kelly & Sam Osborne) def. The Nations (Adam Hoffman & Jack Bonza). Unable to locate the finish, just a photo on the Newy Pro IG story of North Shore raising their hands on the stage, so I hope I got that one right.
Carter Deams def. Mick Moretti to retain the Newy Pro Heavyweight Championship with a package piledriver. Lots of action in this one with the Nations interfering to give Moretti the unfair advantage, before Headhunter Rig arrived to even the odds.
I was looking forward to this event all month and was absolutely devastated to miss it. I’ll definitely get my butt up to Newcastle at some stage for a Newy Pro show. However, in my digging around social media to get results, I did find out that this show will be uploaded for future viewing, complete with commentary from the great Don Marnell! Happy days!
