If you love a bit of adrenaline then head along to the Invercargill Working Mens’ Club this weekend.

The first Southern Rumble show since lockdown, it is also Southern pro Wrestling (SPW) five-year anniversary, and because it all started in the South, Invercargill gets to celebrate with two shows this weekend.

“Whilst the rest of the world continues to fight the virus, we are able to fight with each other over an action packed weekend that we have never done before,” founder Marc Perry said.

Two live events will be run back-to-back this Friday and Saturday night, featuring six local home- grown wrestlers.

“We will have a Southern Rumble winner and they will get their opportunity to become SPW New Zealand Champion the very next night,” he said.

SPW first ran its Live Pro Wrestling event in Invercargill on August 8, 2015, and since then it has aired through TVNZ’s Duke channel – featuring professionals from around the World such as WWE’s (American Wrestling) Travis Banks.

Marc said for those who have never been before, come along completely with an open mind.

“The audiences reaction and participation is what makes it all unique,” he said.
Wrestlers use a combination of sport, athleticism and drama to entertain the crowd, and the SPW now has a huge fan base.

“We are thrilled to be able to put on a professional wrestling event in front of a live crowd again, and no doubt anticipate this weekend to be another huge success from our extremely passionate supporters that have got us this far,” Marc said.
