Robbie Eagles Set For Major Return Match At PWA Back In Black Label

Robbie Eagles is the biggest star in PWA– and one of the most prolific in all of Australian wrestling. But he has been largely absent from Pro Wrestling Australia shows in recent months. There’s a good reason for that- he was representing PWA and Australia on a global scale in NJPW’s Best Of The Super Juniors tournament. In that tournament, he gained wins over the likes of Ryusuke Taguchi and SHO, while having highly impressive performances against the elite of New Japan’s junior heavyweight division- such as Hiromu Takahashi and current champion Taiji Ishimori. On February 12, he returns to the promotion that he calls home- with an absolutely blockbuster bout.

At PWA Back In Black Label, on February 12, 2021 at the Factory Theatre, Robbie Eagles will challenge PWWA Champion Jessica Troy for the top prize in PWA- as PWA Heavyweight Champion Caveman Ugg is currently subject to border restrictions. The PWWA Championship was changed from a women’s championship to an intergender title in 2019. The first intergender defense occured at PWA Break Their Backs and Make Them Rumble in August 2019, with Jessica Troy defending successfully against Mat Diamond.

Robbie Eagles vs. Jessica Troy was originally scheduled for PWA Coming Out Of My Cave in March 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic forced a change in plans. Almost a year later, Robbie has gained more international experience, and Jess has been going from strength to strength as one of PWA’s biggest and brightest stars. Eagles will have something to prove on his return, while Troy will look to bounce back from just barely losing her block in the PWA Premiership.

Tickets are still available for PWA Back In Black Label, or it can be watched via a live stream on FITE TV (links in the embedded Tweet below).

Pro Wrestling, MMA and karaoke. These things fuel me. Loved wrestling for 23 years, loved MMA for 19 years, but having Cerebral Palsy means I probably won't ever be a pro wrestler or MMA fighter. Luckily, there's always video games.
