The depth of the PWA (Pro Wrestling Australia) talent pool is truly astounding. While it boasts stars that have a nation-wide and even international presence- elite performers such as Robbie Eagles, Mick Moretti, Jack Bonza, Jessica Troy & Charli Evans– it is also home to a crop of promising newcomers working their way through the PWA Academy. The likes of Nathan Pidgeon, Joey Farrah & Tommy D have all impressed on recent Academy Showcase events, and this coming weekend, they’ve got a shot at doing it again.
This Saturday night, at the PWA Academy, the event Rookies Rule, Coaches Drool will air on FITE– for free! Limited tickets are still available to attend the event in Ingleburn, NSW- near Sydney- but if you’re unable to make the trip, strap yourself in for some FREE pro wrestling action! The premise is simple: the rookies- known in PWA as “Green Dingos”– look to challenge their coaches- the likes of Eagles, Moretti and Shazza McKenzie. In particular, McKenzie is likely to be highly motivated- at PWA Always Bring Your Gear, she became the first (and to date, only) main roster star to lose to a Dingo. This resulted in her demotion to the pre-show of the Aussie Open vs. Velocities Black Label show.
Although Shazza was able to even the score with Pidgeon here, the loss stil appears to sting based on her aggressive demeanour in the above video. The frustration could boil over this weekend at the Academy and on FITE.
Also, an intriguing addition to the card was made today- as PWA welcomes its “sister” promotion, Newcastle Pro Wrestling, to the Showcase event. Their training school is the House Of Free Fighting, and Newy Pro coaches Carter Deams, Headhunter Rig & Charli Evans look to teach rookies Ben Braxton, Rita Stone & Shay Kassidy a thing or two.
