the other stays, opens up a successful wrestling venture and collects several championships.

The match ends in a no-contest. Nothing gets sorted………Until now.
The prodigal son, the golden boy of professional wrestling in South Africa from cape town Pj Black F.K.A Justin Gabriel 3 time WWE tag-team champion. A 1 time TNA King of the mountain, the current lucha libre under ground champion. returns to APWA after seven years to settle a score. And to answer a question that has been burning in his mind,,,,,,,,does he have what it takes to defeat the Lion of Africa Ananzi.
This match will settle a score that has been burning in the hearts and minds of wrestling fans that were there those 7 years ago, and reading this now, who really is the best wrestler. It will be the 450 splash vs the Bad Habit, style vs substance, The Dare wolf vs the Lion of Africa.
Speaking of the best, the new APWA champion will be crowned in an over-the-top-rope battle royal. Since John Axel has taken over GM duties and vacated the championship the company has not had a flag bearer and a number of superstars have an opportunity to be crowned the newest and undisputed champion of APWA.
Conspicuous by his absence of noise Loudmouth has not said much with regards to the beating he took at the hands of Crow and Hector Payne, who knows what he has in store for anyone who crosses his path.
The show takes place on the 2nd October at 2 PM. Doors open at 1.
Tickets for the show will be 40 rand. Food and beverages will be served.
Full results for the APWA/ WWP Wrestling Show held this past weekend …
First off the show started with a heartfelt tribute to SA face with all the wrestlers paying their respects to their fallen comrade and the show was dedicated to him.
As the show started, Ananzi brought John Axel into the ring to ask him about the future of The APWA championship as since John Axel was injured 6 months ago, the belt hasn’t been defended, After a refusal to give up the title, a call to the big boss himself Mark Beale settled the issue, if John Axel relinquished the title he would be as of immediate effect the new general manager of APWA.
Jumping at the opportunity, John Axel announced that he would take up the position and that the title will be vacant until next month when there will be a royal rumble to determine the new champion and told Ananzi to get ready as he will have a match later that night.
As the new boss John Axel immediately put Kyle Ripley into a match, choosing his opponent to be The Ultimate Nathan, and adding the stipulation that if the Ultimate Nathan won the match then he would get an All African Championship shot.
With some interference from the new GM, Ultimate Nathan won the match after a sneaky low blow to Kyle Ripley and earning a shot at the strap although after the match Kyle held Nathan hostage to get into the rumble for next month. Axel agreed to the stipulation and Kyle ended up dropping Nathan anyway.
Feeling sorry for Nathan the new GM gave him some help in his championship match by bringing out Jay Titan to help him out against the Man Mountain Kilimanjaro.
Kilimanjaro had some help of his own though requesting that the WWP heavyweight Champion Mr. Wrestling be the special referee for the match, and in what can only be described as a complete slaughter, Kilimanjaro destroyed both Jay Titan and The Ultimate Nathan to retain his belt.
Next up we had the ladies when Inyanga took on Black Widow in a hard fought match, Black Widow obviously having the size advantage dominated most of the match but in the end the WWP womans champion Inyanga ended up finding a way to topple the Man eater that in Black Widow.
Coming off the divas, we saw a brutal match between Renegade and Hotartu, this match was painful to watch with Hortaru risking his life with every move he did to Renegade which in the end, to every fans delight, saw him come off with the victory. Which led to his celebration with his partner and co APWA tag team champion holder Super X
The next match saw Super X take on the Nigerian Prince, The Great Masengo, in a very impressive showing, The Great Masengo was able to hold his own with one half of the APWA tag team champions Super X and came very close to picking up a victory over him until Renegade, still bitter over his previous loss attacked Super X to cause a DQ win for Super X.
Seeing the drama unfold, the new GM John Axel gave Renegade and The Great Masengo a shot at retribution and gave them an option to team up to take on the APWA tag team champions, and to sweeten the deal, the GM even made it a championship match.
In a tremendous show of heart and effort, Super X and Hotaru took on the two giants of Renegade and The Great Masengo but ultimately fell short in capitalizing which resulted in NEW APWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, Renegade and The Great Masengo
The Main Event of the night saw John Axel reveal that The Loudmouth would be Ananzi’s opponent. Loudmouth having been out of action for quite a few months showed very little signs of ring rust when taking on Ananzi, the two put on a hard fought battle with the crowd behind Ananzi but no one knowing who would get the advantage until…
The Lights went out…
When they came back on there were two unknown wrestlers in the ring attacking both Ananzi and The Loudmouth, then their faces were recognizable as SAPW’s own Crow and Hector Payne… the dastardly duo beat down both APWA wrestlers declaring that they were there to take over. With the new GM John Axel pretending to take credit for this invasion a match was made.
APWA vs SAPW in a hardcore match
So much blood sweat and tears were shed in this match with the four competitors brutalizing each other with key boards, CPU’s and Guitars, This match was honestly hard to watch as every wrestler was bleeding and every person in the crowd was on the edge of their seats but in the end, SAPW was standing tall as their specialty match is The Hardcore match and they proved to APWA exactly why that is…
What does this mean for the future of South African Professional Wrestling?
Will APWA invade SAPW shows
Will any of the SAPW wrestlers show up next month to take part in the rumble?

After a long dramatic break, the passing of several wrestling brothers including APWA’s very own brother S.A Face at the APWA. African Punishment Wrestling (APWA) will finally be right back where they started and go live at Danie van Zyl recreation centre rex street Montclare JHB.
26 August 2016 we dedicate this Friday event to S.As starting at 19h00.
For only R30 be part of this historical event. Doors open at 6:30, wrestling starts at 7.
England’s finest APWA heavy weight champion Christopher Edward the 3rd will be there live for the 1st time ever after his career threatening injury, to go public to announce if he will defend his title or is he going to hang his boots up and call retirement. Be there to find out.
The event will also see the return of Buksie Kruger, Ananzi’s nephew. But there is a spanner in the works…
Rumours is going around that Jonny “The Ice-Man” Sabin is up for managing the APWA again. We don’t know if this is true only way to find out is to be there.
Sabin has always coveted the role of manager, and, at one stage was the Manager at APWA only to lose it back to Ananzi. Sabin’s lust for power knows no bounds and he will stop at nothing to reclaim the power he once had.
In an interview earlier today with founder member and sole owner Ananzi stated, and I quote “Lately a lot going on at the APWA, we had 2 serious injuries, career threatening kind of injuries, we lost a close close brother S.A Face, God bless his soul. It has also allowed for some introspection within the company, and with some of the old faces moving on to other organisations it has allowed us to go back to the fundamentals of professional wrestling”
Ananzi in the same breath reckons that it is good for business as it was long due for an end of an era and time for new era with new faces young blood and new superstars. Ananzi states “Gone is the days of the gorilla gigantic gimmick, the time has come for people to realize that wrestling is an art, a sport and of course entertainment and for the normal human out there to relate to himself”.
The question is, in what direction is this going go to? Will Sabin show up at all? And how will the locker-room respond to being under the potential dictatorship of Jonny Sabin. Who will stand up for the APWA should it happen?
Well I guess u got to be there and find out for only R30 pp you are promised a night with world class action dramatic wrestling entertainment as original as can be.
