Its a new year, and hot off the heels of the biggest year in Melbourne City Wrestling yet, we’re looking at kicking off 2017 with more of the very best professional wrestling in Melbourne, featuring the very best professional wrestlers from across the country, as we present MCW Vendetta, which takes place at the MCW Arena in Essendon on Saturday January 14.
We can now reveal our first match for this event, and we’ll be firing right out of the gate with a huge return to the company, as Damian Slater will make his first Melbourne City Wrestling appearance in over a year, as he faces off with Adam Brooks!
Since we last saw him, Damian Slater has become one of the hottest commodities in Australian Wrestling. He has held the Wrestle Rampage Championship with an iron grasp in Adelaide, and most famously, he competed as part of WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic late last year, though he would be unsuccessful against ‘The Japanese Buzzsaw’, Tajiri. That worldwide recognition has nonetheless catapulted Slater to the forefront, and we’re proud to have him back at an MCW live event.
However one man who isn’t pleased to see the return of Damian Slater is ‘The Loose Ledge’, Adam Brooks. In 2016, we saw Brooks rip through the competition in Melbourne City Wrestling with a renewed focus. He held the MCW Intercommonwealth Championship, becoming one of the few people in the last two years to score a pinfall victory over the new MCW Heavyweight Champion, Dowie James. Most recently, he was victorious at MCW Final Battle, in a match against Triple A Mexico star, Australian Suicide, better known to MCW audiences as Ryan Rollins.
With a new year unfolding, and the competition within Melbourne City Wrestling becoming more fierce than ever before, this is bound to be a hard fought battle, as both men seek to start the year with a win. Tickets for MCW Vendetta are still available online, and can also be purchased at the venue on the night. We’ll be back with more match announcements later this week.
