Melbourne City Wrestling was established in October 2010, as the successor to the previously named ‘Australian Championship Wrestling’, which has ties dating back to the golden age of professional wrestling in the 1960′s and 70′s at Festival Hall, when names like Mario Milano would frequently wow crowds of all ages. In this short, four year timespan, we have grown dramatically to become the biggest pro-wrestling company in Victoria and one of the biggest in Australia.
We now host monthly events on the second Saturday of every month at the Essendon Ukrainian Hall, fondly dubbed the MCW Arena. We also hold supercard events at the Thornbury Theatre. Both venues are within 15 minutes drive of Melbourne’s CBD.
We have a loyal following of all ages, from all walks of life, and our fanbase is constantly expanding in numbers. Our social media presence is strong, with a Facebook following of well over 3000 fans, and over 1000 fans following the official Melbourne City Wrestling Twitter page. Our crowds are also well behaved and always in great spirits. We have never had to eject unruly patrons from our shows and never had a significant outburst from our crowds.
Our major focus is on our family friendly events, which cater to an ‘all ages’ audience, running regularly at both the Thornbury Theatre and the Tullamarine Public Hall. Our roster includes a mixture of both the best talent from around Victoria, and top quality professional wrestlers from around Australia, many of whom have had international experience. Notable MCW alumni include the former MCW Champion Matt Silva (now competing as ‘Buddy Murphy’ on WWE NXT), Tenille Tayla (performing as ‘Emma’ in WWE), KC Cassidy (now signed with WWE NXT), and Ryan Rollins (now competing as ‘Australian Suicide’ for the AAA professional wrestling promotion in Mexico).
In addition to our regular events, we have operated a series of special events, and provided our services (ranging from ring hire to a complete event) for a number of clients, including the Big Day Out and Future Music Festivals. We are able to cater our unique product to a wide variety of corporate functions and special events. In the past, we have also run fundraisers for the ‘Epilepsy Foundation’, ‘Breast Cancer Network Australia’, and ‘Relay For Life’.
