In 2014, WRESTLE RAMPAGE seeked a new home. By August we had found the one. Woodville’s St. Clair Recreation Centre had been a fixture in the heart of the western suburbs for over 50 years and it was now to become the home of professional wrestling in South Australia.

 

The inaugural event was held on a Sunday, attended by WWE head of talent Canyon Ceman and then head coach Bill DeMott. One of the features of the card was a women’s match between Jessie McKay (now Billie Kay) and KC Cassidy (now Peyton Royce). The phenomenal match would directly result in their signing with the WWE. The main event between Jonah Rock & Damian Slater was one for the ages. The two went to war over the Australian National Championship until Jonah Rock would come out with his first piece of national gold. The WWE took notice and 18 months later, Damian Slater was signed for the WWE Cruiserweight Classic.

 

In the 3 years that St. Clair has been our home, we have seen some of the best professional wrestling ever held on Australian soil. From the wars between TMDK and The Brotherhood, to the rise of Australia’s next generation of talent, many will be sad to see it go. But when one door closes, another opens, and we look forward to announcing the news of our next venture!

 

On August 12th at GROUND ZERO, we will say goodbye to St. Clair Recreation Centre in true Wrestle Rampage fashion, by witnessing a war between 4 of the very best. The TMDK dream team of Damian Slater & Jonah Rock will battle ‘Big & Gorgeous‘ of Big Willy & Gorgeous Greg in an epic Tag Team Grudge Match. Make sure to buy your tickets via the link below and support Australia’s best professional wrestlers as they farewell the latest chapter in South Australian wrestling history.

WR Fallout News: HAVOK vs. CHRIS VICE [No DQ Match]

June 23, 2017 Comments off

fallout6

From the ashes of the monumental TMDK vs. THE BROTHERHOOD rivalry, comes this fight. And a fight it will be.

 

2 of THE BROTHERHOOD’s key members, HAVOK & VICE found themselves at odds after being forced to disband at the close of 2016. HAVOK blamed CHRIS VICE for the stable’s demise, feeling like VICE owed the veteran. CHRIS VICE on the other hand isn’t one to take orders lightly, and the two became tangled in a war of words… and fists!
After battling in both singles and tag team matches, it became obvious that this feud would never end by traditional means. Instead COMMISSIONER TOM CHOCOLATE decided to announce that the 2 would face-off one last time in a No Holds Barred, No Countout, No Disqualifications match!

 

Anything goes on Saturday, July 1st at FALLOUT, when THE BROTHERHOOD collide one final time!

WR Fallout News: MIKE BOOMER(c) vs. LINK BARNETT

June 23, 2017 Comments off

The CRUISERWEIGHT CUP will be on the line as MIKE BOOMER defends his crown against former tag team partner, ‘The Human Bullet’ LINK BARNETT!

 

A longtime face of the South Australian wrestling scene, MIKE BOOMER made his way over to WRESTLE RAMPAGE in 2014, determined to take his career to the next level. Training with the likes of WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitor DAMIAN SLATER, BOOMER began to show an intensity in the ring like no other. BOOMER began mixing his high flying abilities with technical prowess and vicious striking power, which led to him capturing the inaugural CRUISERWEIGHT CUP in 2016. Now having defended the Championship on multiple occasions against Australia’s best cruiserweights, BOOMER will take on a familiar face, who is no mood to shake hands and play fair.

 

LINK BARNETT is from a similar position to his former comrade. The New Zealand native moved to Adelaide in attempt to make his mark on the world wrestling scene. He seemed to make tracks when he and BOOMER formed a highly successful tag team in 2014. However BOOMER wanted to test himself in singles competition and suggested that the team move in their separate ways. Since that time BARNETT has picked up some major wins, but every time he finds himself close to the throne, he has encountered a road block. The most recent being a questionable, yet devastating loss to the debuting RAT DADDY at last month’s REVOLUTION. BARNETT took out his frustrations on a victorious MIKE BOOMER later in the evening, and (un)kindly requested his first ever shot at the trophy.

 

On July 1st we will see two staples of the Cruiserweight division fight for its most prestigious prize and believe us when we say, you will not want to miss this match!

WR Fallout News: JOANIE MAY vs. AMITY ROW

June 23, 2017 Comments off

While Wrestle Rampage has always featured an impressive women’s division containing the likes of current WWE talent PEYTON ROYCE, BILLIE KAY and DEMI BENNETT, it was only recently that we saw a Wrestle Rampage Dojo graduate make her mark on the scene. JOANIE MAY took the fight to arguably Australia’s current #1 female wrestler KELLYANNE on back to back occasions, showing tremendous heart and ability, even in defeat.

 

Now JOANIE MAY will again search for her first ever victory when she takes on EPW Perth’s AMITY ROW. A member of the highly acclaimed stable THE SOLUTION, the enigmatic ROW has taken her talents around Australia and will be looking for a decisive win to make her mark on the Australian scene.

 

Don’t miss the women of WRESTLE RAMPAGE, wrestling live on July 1st at St. Clair Recreation Centre!

WR Fallout News: ELLIOT SEXTON vs. BIG WILLY GIBSON

June 23, 2017 Comments off

July 1st’s FALLOUT will see the return of one of Australia’s most successful pro wrestlers, ELLIOT SEXTON as he takes on the powerhouse of the ‘BIG & GORGEOUS’ team in ‘Big’ WILLY GIBSON!

A member of the TMDK faction and long-time feature of the WRESTLE RAMPAGE roster, SEXTON has spent the past few years honing his craft around Australia. In that time SEXTON became the most dominant MELBOURNE CITY WRESTLING champion of all time with a mammoth title reign spanning almost 2 years.

In his path will stand someone who has often been overlooked due to his questionable alliance with ‘Gorgeous’ GREG GRAHAM. The former ‘Wreckin Ball Wilson’, WILLY GIBSON has been performing for almost a decade at a level that most only dream of. Successful tours of Japan with ZERO1 Pro Wrestling, and main event matches for Wrestle Rampage, GIBSON has been in the spotlight on more than one occasion. Don’t let his flamboyant appearance fool you, GIBSON is all business in the ring and has taken down some of Australia’s very best.

2 of Australia’s top heavyweight Pro Wrestlers will battle it out at St. Clair Recreation Centre in just a week’s time. You won’t want to miss it!
