As has been detailed on Snap Mayors extensively in past articles and show reviews, PWA (Pro Wrestling Australia) has experienced considerable growth over the past few years. A key factor in the growth of PWA and the Black Label brand has been the venue. Moving away from community centres and RSLs gave PWA a new sense of identity. On Saturday, 8th of May, PWA returns home to Max Watts in Sydney.
The concert venue in the Entertainment Quarter of Moore Park provides the perfect rowdy atmosphere for the 18+ wrestling events, akin to the Hammerstein Ballroom for the orignal ECW. At the next Black Label event, Max Watts plays host to a colossal clash of tag teams, as reigning champs the Velo-Cities (Jude London & Paris De Silva) defend against world-renowned duo Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis).
Fletcher & Davis made their PWA debut as a team at PWA Back In Black Label, answering the open challenge of Generation Now’s Matty Wahlberg & Ricky South. Following a statement victory, Aussie Open would turn around and topple the Nations (Jack J Bonza & Mick Moretti) at PWA It Started Out With A Kiss. Aussie Open have had great international success in companies like Progress, ROH and NJPW, but in case you’re unfamiliar with what they bring to the table, PWA have kindly uploaded Aussie Open vs. Gen Now to their YouTube channel:
While Aussie Open are undoubtedly a formidable force, the Velo-Cities will be a stepping stone for no one. At the same event that Aussie Open returned- Back In Black Label- London & De Silva retained their titles in an epic Ladder Match against MK Plus Ultra. Two teams at the top of their game makes for a mouth-watering match-up in Max Watts!
