SPW’s home grown brand of ‘Wrestling on the Edge of the World’ returned to the Corinthian Centre post COVID-19 restrictions for not one, but two back to back sell out live events to celebrate 5 years since their debut show in Invercargill on 8th August 2015 for their annual ‘Southern Rumble’.

Since 2015, SPW has gone on to put on two huge record breaking live events at the ILT Stadium Southland and appear on TVNZ DUKE and TVNZ On Demand with their action packed take on sports entertainment, taking New Zealand, and the rest of the wrestling world by storm.

The weekend saw two sell out shows on Friday and Saturday night including a free event during the day on Saturday. Fans of all ages attended their Fan Experience for meet and greet and photo opportunity with the stars of SPW.

The weekend ended when a brand new SPW New Zealand Champion was crowned, ‘The Big Man’ Jamie Tagataese won the 20 Man Southern Rumble match the previous evening that gave him an opportunity to challenge the ‘Shooter’ Shane Sinclair the very next night for the championship, eventually becoming victorious much to the sold out crowd’s delight.

Fans that missed out will be available to watch both live events through SPW’s app, SPW On Demand, that is available through iTunes or Google Play worldwide.

SPW returns to the Corinthian Centre in Invercargill on Sat 31st October for their flag ship live event ‘Halloween Haunting’ where fans attend in their favourite fancy dress to add to the atmosphere. Tickets will be available shortly and information will be provided via spwrestling.co.nz.
