We’ve been hard at work, rounding out the cards for our huge Sixth Anniversary Extravaganza double header, which takes place THIS WEEKEND, at the MCW Arena in Essendon, on Friday October 7, and Saturday October 8. As you’ll be aware, we unfortunately had ‘Australian Suicide’ Ryan Rollins pull out of his scheduled appearances in Australia, mere hours before boarding his plane over here, at the request of Triple A management. While we’re frustrated and disappointed with this result (as we’re sure all of you are), we haven’t had the chance to dwell on it, and have been searching for a replacement, who will begin the weekend by facing Mark Davis in round one of the Melbourne City Invitational.
That replacement is ‘The Green Dragon’ Mick Moretti. Hailing from New South Wales, Moretti has been a champion across multiple promotions in his home state. Recently, he’s been raising eyebrows as a result of his strange and unusual behaviour, seen online in video clips and at live events. Will this unpredictable behaviour result in Moretti advancing to night two of the MCI, which takes place at MCW Sixth Anniversary Extravaganza – Night 2?
In addition, we’ve added another championship match to the Friday night, with Elliot Sexton defending the MCW Heavyweight Championship against another New South Welshman, Sean Kustom! ‘Swagzilla’ has been rapidly rising through the ranks of the Australian circuit throughout 2016, competing in Perth, New South Wales, and impressing MCW Management in a bout at Ballroom Brawl a few months ago. But gaining a reputation and being ready to take on the man who is currently on track to become the longest reigning MCW Heavyweight Champion in history are two different things. Does Kustom have what it takes? Or, fresh from showing that he is indeed a team player and standard bearer for Melbourne City Wrestling, will Sexton continue to rock Melbourne?
Now, onto night two…
We know that we’ve been pretty quiet with line-up announcements for the second night of the Sixth Anniversary Extravaganza, and given that we’ve had the highest online pre-sales for any event at the MCW Arena in Essendon, we aren’t going to disappoint! In addition to witnessing the Second Round Semi-Finals and the Finals in the Melbourne City Invitational, we will also see womens wrestling action, as Avary goes head to head with the leader of Team F’n Kick, Evie!
In recent times, Avary has joined Mitch Waterman and Nick Bury, as part of The Brat Pack, a collective group of younger upstarts who refuse to lose by any means necessary. Bury & Waterman have taken a liking to punching their opponents in the back of the head without provocation, whilst Avary has been quick to run interference for them, serving as a lethal distraction at ringside. But her opponent is not someone who will fall for these tricks that easily, as Evie is a world class competitor, who in recent times, has appeared on NXT television, and become one half of the SHIMMER Womens Wrestling Tag Team Champions.
In addition, we will see Dowie James in action, as he will go up against one of the knockouts from the first round of the Melbourne City Invitational. Throughout 2016, Dowie has become one of the flagship competitors in Melbourne City Wrestling, with a passion and determination that is arguably unmatched by anyone else on the roster. In recent times, Dowie has been waging somewhat of a war against Elliot Sexton, as he questioned Sexton’s dedication to MCW in the run up to Caged Warfare. Those fears were put to bed at the event, with Sexton helping a bloodied Dowie James win the match. The question now is whether or not Dowie will simply sweep the whole saga under the bed, or whether he will apologise to Sexton for everything that has gone on the past few months…
And finally, on night two, we will see a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH for the MCW Intercommonwealth Championship, which we currently know will feature MCW fan favourite JXT, against two opponents who are yet to be named. The winner of that match will face either Jack Jameson or Mr Juicy at a time to be determined down the track. Whilst JXT brings energy and excitement to Melbourne City Wrestling that very few others can match, will that be enough to secure him a chance at the Intercommonwealth Championship?
Tickets for both nights can be purchased at the door. We advise getting in early if you wish to secure seating, as it is limited. We will also have standing room available for late comers. Both nights are going to showcase the very best that not only Australia has to offer, but the world. We’ll be updating fans with the night two line-up at the conclusion of night one.
