*Breaking News* Australian Wrestling’s Damien Slater to Compete in WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic.

Melbourne City Wrestling would like to send out a massive congratulations to Damien Slater. Damien, who has appeared for MCW shows previously, is a true modern day great, who will no doubt make the most of this fantastic opportunity. A truely deserving competitor, who appropriately found out that he had qualified on his birthday no less!

Damian Slater had the following to say on his official Facebook page:

“From 11 years-old until 28, I’ve only ever had one real dream and that is to wrestle for the WWE.

I am extremely excited to announce that I’ll be going over to Orlando, Florida to compete in the first ever 32-Man WWE Cruiserweight Classic, airing worldwide on the WWE network in July!

I remember idolising the WWE & WCW Cruiserweights when I was growing up. Now this dorky kid from little old Adelaide has the opportunity to help kickstart the division again with the whole planet watching. I’m so incredibly grateful to be considered amongst a field of the world’s elite and to be able to represent the completely underrated pro wrestling scene of Australia.

This is all very surreal.

“Always against the odds. One with the underdogs.”
