WR Ground Zero News: SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HARDCORE TITLE RETURNS!
SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Havok vs. Wreckin’ Ball Wilson
In addition to showcasing several spectacular matches, GROUND ZERO will serve as an appreciation night for the great trainer COL DERVANY who helped coach many of the stars responsible for the resurgence of South Australian wrestling in the early 2000’s. As a gesture of appreciation and a throwback to the past era of SA wrestling, WRESTLE RAMPAGE will be bringing back the championship that COL DERVANY created 15 years ago, the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP.
Under the jurisdiction of PRO WRESTLING SOUTH AUSTRALIA at the time, the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP was seen around the waist of stars such as HAVOK, STEVE O’NEAL and ‘Jag’ HARTLEY JACKSON. Defended in Ladder Matches, Streetfights and even the 1st ever Flaming Tables match in Australia, the title became a spectacle for wrestling fans and helped to put many of our stars on the map at a national level. Out of respect for the man responsible for the championship and the champions who have held the gold, WRESTLE RAMPAGE have asked COL DERVANY to hand-pick the competitors who will battle under ‘hardcore rules’ to crown a new champion on October 26th. COL DERVANY has selected a representative from both the old school and new school to tie together the past 15 years of South Australian pro wrestling.
HAVOK is perhaps the most successful HARDCORE CHAMPION in history, having held the title on two occasions. Known then as ‘The Master of Mayhem,’ he defeated STEVE O’NEAL in the 1st ever FLAMING TABLES MATCH back in 2000. In 2014 HAVOK returned to his roots and would challenge the WRESTLE RAMPAGE roster to a series of no-holds-barred fights, which proved to be a deadly move. However there was one man who took the fight to HAVOK and produced one of the wildest matches we have seen.
That man was WRECKIN’ BALL WILSON and he is the 2nd competitor that COL DERVANY has picked. WRECKIN’ BALL is mostly known to Australian fans as being one half of popular tag team ‘JUICY BALLS,’ however his tours of Japan for ZERO1 have seen him in bloody wars against hardcore legends such as SABU and MASATO TANAKA! WRECKIN’ BALL will get a chance to not only capture his 1st championship, but also gain retribution against HAVOK in a hardcore rematch!
