Aussie Indy Wrestling

I don't want to revive a topic that's maybe 10 pages or more into this forum, but thought it was worth creating a new one given some fairly important developments in Australia.

First, Ryback winning the Rock and Roll Wrestling Championship (Wollongong NSW-based promotion) from "Swagzilla" Sean Custom. He has finished his tour and returned to the States with the belt, meaning he'll be back to defend and help grow the brand.



Also, in a similar vein, Will Ospreay has announced his intention to help the Australian wrestling scene out at a MCW show, even teasing the possibility of moving to Australia to really commit himself.



Also, there was a lot of buzz surrounding this match- Will Ospreay vs. Robbie Eagles. Eagles has been my favourite Australian performer for a couple of years, so I'm glad to see him get this exposure.



My live exposure to indy wrestling has been and will continue to be NSW-based, but I believe MCW (Melbourne City Wrestling) has a on-demand service which I'm considering subscribing to. Any Aussies on here that attend indy shows, feel free to add your experiences, photos, videos!

I won't lie, the prospect of two international stars making an effort to better the Aussie scene has me all kinds of excited! (Never been that big a Ryback fan, but he won me over last weekend in the meet and greet and the match in Wollongong)

Re: Aussie Indy Wrestling

Ospreay seems hell bent on really making Down Under a viable place for people to get work and exposure.

Re: Aussie Indy Wrestling

Just finished watching Ospreay/Eagles (yeah, I was that confident it'd be a good match that I shared without watching it first), and damn, did it live up to the hype I was reading. Amazing stuff.

Also, "Robbie's a tough cunt" is the most Aussie chant ever.

Definitely need to watch Eagles/Ospreay within the next few days as I've heard nothing but great things on it.

Re: Aussie Indy Wrestling

Are there any good indy promotions in Sydney?

That Ospreay/Eagles match happened at PWA in Sydney. Haven't been to one of their shows live yet, but that match is obviously great, and a lot of their talent come to Wollongong for the Rock and Roll Wrestling shows. Also, Newcastle Pro Wrestling is great, with some of the same talent.

Rock and Roll Wrestling have come a long way too. When they first started roughly 3 years ago, it was a bit of a low rent gig, but Hunter Hayes has shown himself to be a good promoter and has built up the talent there nicely, and the rewards are coming in now with bigger venues and stars like Ryback. I don't know if you're Sydney based or not, but Wollongong is just a hour drive south from there, where most of the Rock and Roll shows are.

Re: Aussie Indy Wrestling

Ospreay is just another English lad trying to escape the shitty weather to Australia. Fair enough too. Just leave that creepy fucker Zack Sabre Jr. in England.

Re: Aussie Indy Wrestling

I thought the Ospreay/Brooks match was a lot better than the Ospreay/Eagles match. The massive crowd and top notch production that MCW provides also added a lot to the atmosphere, hopefully the show gets put on their VOD service soon.
