REIGNING STORM

FN HARDCORE

Photo: Explosive Pro Wrestling Davis Storm emerged as the new EPW Champion after a hard fought battle with Jamie Jurah at ReAwakening 9. The Ironman became the first three time EPW Champion after making Jurah tap out to a crossface. Jurah had tried everything he could to hold on to the championship he constantly disrespected. Following the victory, the new champion was presented a brand new title belt following his win by EPW Board of Directors member, Brett Corvus.

During the match Jacobs slammed Griffins head into the guard rail opening up the Kamikaze Kid, who proceeded to bleed for the rest of the match. Jacobs is now the first ever Grand Slam winner after adding the Shield to his EPW Championship, Tag Team Championship and Invitational Tournament reigns.

GOLDEN CHAMPION The tenth Invitational Champion was crowned at Re-Awakening 9, when The Golden Greek Marcius Pitt won the Triple Threat final over Carlo Cannon and Hollywood Kiel Steria. Pitt hit a F-5 on Cannon, in Ca$h Moneys last match in Australia before heading to Canada to take part in the filming of the new Lance Storm TV Series, World of Hurt. The victory gives Pitt his first opportunity at the EPW Championship sometime in 2011. WIMBLEDON, VICE RETAIN EPW Tag Team champions, Jonathan Wimbledon and Chris Vice held back the challenge for their titles from the re-united Blitz Team at ReAwakening 9. The challengers had earlier in the night won the #1 Contenders match against Team Allstar and the new duo of AZ Vegara and Dan Moore, before the champions attacked them following the match which gave them the advantage for the championship match, as both members of the Blitz Team suffered injuries in the attack. END OF YEAR AWARDS 2010 The ninth fan voted EPW awards were handed out in the Re-Awakening 9 pre-show by commentators Lukey Bolland and Mean Dean Olsen. The new EPW champion, Davis Storm, was voted Wrestler of the Year for the third time in his career (2002, 2008) and for the first time in the awards history there was a three way tie, with Marcius Pitt, Jonathan Wimbledon and Gavin McGavin being voted as the Most Improved. It was Pitts second Most Improved award after winning in 2007. The winners: Wrestler of the Year: Davis Storm Match of the Year: Team Allstar vs. The Blackest Hour (Riot Den Match) Event of the Year: Road to Glory 2 Most Improved Wrestler: Marcius Pitt, Jonathan Wimbledon and Gavin McGavin Rookie of the Year: Dorian ***** ART OF XTREME TRIBAL FIGHTING Art of Fighting champion, Tama Williams retained the title in the Xtreme Tribal Warfare triple threat match against former WWF Tag Team Champion, Headshrinker Samu and Mana. The young New Zealander, Williams pinned the Polynesian Warrior in his farewell Australian match, following the betrayal of Manas long time friend and KillSwitch Krew partner, Tapu and two Air New Zealand frog splashes on to a barbed wire covered board, capping off an awesome 2010 for Williams where he also won the AWF Commonwealth Championship from Powerhouse Theo, who had held the title for over a year.

FAREWELL MANA

Following the match the NHPW locker room piled out and surrounded the ring in a show of respect to the bruised, battered and bloody Mana. Earlier in the night, a video package of Manas career was played and some of his American friends including Mike Quackenbush and Bushwhacker Luke left video messages. STRAIGHT EDGE CHAMPION

Photo: ShaunSean Promotions After months of being dodged and thwarted by Heritor, Straight Edge David Hawk finally defeated the Australian Gothic for the Hi-Fi Championship after hitting The Intervention Splash at Final Chapter 2010. Heritor, who held the title for 476 days, will surely be looking for revenge and a rematch after the South Aussie gained the victory with his feet on the ropes, which was

missed by referee Kapri. BOS DOUBLE TRIPLE THREAT Bombshell Bo escaped with her IndyGurlz Australian title after surviving two Triple Threat matches at Final Chapter 2010. Night one saw Bo retain after Mercedes Martinez pinned Jessie McKay, with the stipulation being that Bo would only lose the title if she was pinned. The second night saw Bo find an ally in Nikki Roxx as they teamed up against Mercedes Martinez before the pair turned against each other in the quest for the championship. BADD ASS Billy Gunn had a successful debut with NHPW, winning both his matches at Final Chapter 2010.The first night Gunn teamed with the Hostile Reptile NC Viper to defeat the duo of NHPW Art of Fighting champion, Tama Williams and Cannonball Kris Taylor. The victory means Viper will now get a future shot at the title, as per the stipulation of the match. The Ass Man took on X-Dogg Jake Bishop on the second night and got the win over the nephew of the Junkyard Dog, after hitting the Fameasser. ***** SLATE WINS MASSIVE CHALLENGE Jarrad Slate successfully defended his SHWA Championship against former champion, Mad Mike Massive at Road to Redemption, hitting his patented DAS BOOT! Following the match an exhausted Slate shook hands with Massive before inviting his Muscle Militia stable mates, Pain and The Wraith to the ring. The leader of the Militia announced that the Triple Threat SHWA Championship Match between the trio would be a Hardcore Match. What will become of the Militia after Ascension II? SHWAS ATTITUDE ERA BEGINS

Road to Redemption saw the debut of the self proclaimed, Lewd, Tattooed, Mr. Attitude Aston Crude in a Triple Threat match against fan favourite, Crazy Train and $oldiers of Fortune member, Avalanche. Before the match, the man hailing from Burswood cut a promo that introduced, but not endeared him to the SHWA fans. Crude won after hitting a superkick and top rope elbow drop on Crazy Train and now will take on fellow rookie, Firefly Felix Young at Ascension II. MILITIA THREAT SHWA Commissioner, KJ Rollins created a tournament at Road to Redemption, to decide #1 contenders to Jarrad Slates SHWA championship. WPW Rookie of the Year, Dan Steel, $oldiers of Fortunes, Elliot Forbes and The Muscle Militias Pain and The Wraith all won their first round matches to advance to the Fatal Four Way Final after, where the first two participants to gain a pinfall would advance to the championship Triple Threat match at Ascension II. Pain was the first to advance with a pinfall on Forbes, followed by his teammate, The Wraith who also defeated the $oldiers of Fortunes financial mogul. RAVAGES FORCED RETIREMENT

Photo: Jarod/SHWA $oldiers Of Fortune member, Sean Ravage has been advised by his doctor to retire immediately from pro wrestling after suffering a severe injury during his #1 contenders tournament match against Pain at Road to Redemption. Ravage debuted in May 2009 at Trial by Fire and recently had a title match against SHWA Champion, Jarrad Slate in August. Westside Pro Wrestling would like to wish Sean the best of luck and hope he returns to full health soon.

December 5, 2009 - EPW: Kristmas Kaos 2 EPW ended 2009 with the second Kristmas Kaos event. AZ Vegara continued his roll that began with his win over Jimmy Payne at Re-Awakening 8 the previous month defeating Jay Taylor, Shotgun Tyler Jacobs and Chase Griffin in a Four Way Elimination Match. The returning Nate Dooley destroyed newcomer Ryan Dangerfield (formerly Ryan Aurora), making his debut appearance on an EPW supercard at Kristmas Kaos 2. Dangerfield got a bare minimum of offence in as Dooley treated the rookie with disdain until he was disqualified after refusing to break a smother on the referees five count giving Dangerfield his first victory in EPW. After the bell rung, Dooley continued punishing the rookie until Davis Storm appeared and entered the ring trying to calm Dooley down and offered his hand. Dooley smiling turned away and exited the ring. Prior to the scheduled singles match between Jose Del Santo and Team Allstars Michael Morleone, Sanders proclaimed Jose Del Santo to be dead and announced him as Adrian Priest. The match then turned into a Tag Team encounter with Priest and EPW Champion Richter taking on and defeating Sebastian Sander and Morleone. EPW Hardcore Shield Champion, Gavin McGavin just came away with the Shield in his grasp after a 10 minute time limit Hardcore Shield match against the Brothers Schmidt. Both Schmidts both had opportunities to hold the Shield before McGavin gained the last pinfall. The Main Event was hugely anticipated with EPW Tag Team Champions, Mikey Nicholls and Shane Haste defending their newly won titles against the duo of Davis Storm and Jimmy Payne. The champions managed to retain the titles after a

December 5, 2009 - SHWA: Ascension Ascension was the last show in the debut year of SHWA and the last held apart from being SHWAs first anniversary show, was also the last to be held at the Karrinyup Sports Centre. The Alpha and Omega Jake Paragon became the #1 contender for who ever won the SHWA Championship in the main event, when he got the win over Sean Ravage, Crazy Train and Percy T. in a Fatal Four Way match. NC Viper came out victorious over Jarrad Slate in the Three Stages of Hell match at Ascension. Slate took the early lead with victory in the No DQ fall, before Viper won the Falls Count Anywhere and Last Man Standing. Viper got the victory after Slate was unable to answer the count of 10 after being dropped head first over the back of a chair. Mad Mike Massive was crowned the first ever SHWA Champion after he defeated The Wraith in a bloody battle. Massive hit Wraith with a Black Hole Slam followed by a splash to gain the victory. The Muscle Militia tried to aid their man, with Ebenizah J. Klaus hitting Massive with the clipboard multiple times and the Wraith hitting him with a chair, after the referee had copped an inadvertent splash. Other matches included: - Pain def. Corey in a Hardcore Match - Triple J won the Masked Battle Royal II - Ron Page def. Heritor

SHWA title at numerous events. The Das Boot (running yakuza kick) is one of the most known techniques that Jarrad has put many of the roster away with and this huge kick is the move that secured his right to be the Champ!!! But Jarrad is not all giant kicks to the face! He has many techniques at his disposal, but notably the use of a spring board frog splash, jumping off the middle of the top rope using the extra spring to send him high into the air and comes crashing down on the weary challenger. If thats not enough he will put himself at risk, and using his body as the weapon, the cannonball!!, a devastating running attack where Slate flips into a sitting opponent slumped in the turnbuckle.

Photo: Southern Hemisphere Wrestling Alliance Westside Pro Wrestling unleashes the Wraith on its readers with a bi-monthly column. You want some of this? Of course you do! Here we are, once again, a whole year has passed and WESTSIDE PRO WRESTLING is still going and I'm still in it. What crazy shenanigans will 2011 bring??? But for my last Wraiths World for the year, I'm going to take an in-depth look at a few fellows on the SHWA roster and their incredible moves. Firstly I will start my buddy and tag team partner PAIN! For all those who have seen this monster of muscle in action, you would know he loves to use the "Power-bomb" but he also uses this technique as part of our awesome tag team finisher The Shining Bomb! (which is an outstanding doomsday shining wizard into a power-bomb). But lately, PAIN has been finishing his opponents off with a second rope Death Valley Bomb, which means PAIN has been moving away from his traditional finisher The Status Quo (one armed military press). Moving onto Mad Mike MASSIVE, an opponent who I have come up short against on a number of occasions. So Firstly, I understand how he likes to end his matches. He uses the MASSIVE SLAM which is a falling body slam using his weight to drive his opponent though the canvas, then he normally follows it up with the Black Hole Slam using his weight and the torque of running opponent to twist and disorientate, before driving them down for the win. Secondly, he is huge!! Who can stand up to MASSIVE??? Jarrad Slate!!! Westside Pro Wrestling Wrestler of the YEAR, current SHWA CHAMPION and member of the Muscle Militia, JARRAD SLATE not only has taken down Mike Massive but has retained the

Photo: Jarod/SHWA Next, Jake Paragon, a warrior, which has recently come back to SHWA from injury, full of energy and out prove he's a contender. He is doing this by almost taking his enemies heads off with his Lariat. It is a sight to see and not many have been able stand after it. I have been lucky and have not faced him in well over a year! To weaken the unlucky person normally Paragon softens them up with his Figure 4 Bomb. Moving on to some of the rookies who I will blast though as if I was facing them in a match! Felix Young, is currently using the Lightning Spiral (Swinging Leg Hook, Firemans carry Slam), an amazing move which uses his size and speed to his advantage. Now all Felix has to do is know when to use his move in the right moment and this kid may be up to good things in the new year! Aston Crude won his first match with the Crude Awakening (top rope elbow drop). Aston who??? Aston Crude who managed to land a win in his first appearance in the SHWA at Reckless Abandon, but its all not elbows and flailing that will get you the SHWA title!! Have I mentioned CRIMSON LIGHTNING!!!??

Westside Pro Wrestling

Page 8

I really wish I was a super hero Maybe I should go out on patrol with him and we can be like Luke Cage and Iron Fist!!! (Or more recently Red Mist and KICK ASS!!) I'll even try to make him wear a golden tiara (remember the Golden Avenger?) But what does he do? He uses the Shocking End (Full Nelson Swinging DDT) and the Lightning Crashes (Suplex to cutter) to do away with villainy.

WESTSIDE PRO WRESTLING ROOKIE OF THE YEAR! : Dan Steel. He sends a clear message of power with the S.O.S - Slam of Steel (Olympic slam). This rookie is one to watch out for with his near perfect technique and with a guided hand he could be a front runner for the title shot!! After speaking of Dan, I have to name drop Jimmy Jamal Jenkins, Dans new buddy and Tag Team partner. Most of you would have to seen Jimmys krumping ways, capitalizing on his dance movements to increase the bodacity of the running elbow to which he has labelled The Peoples Krump, following this unorthodox move up with the Krump Kutter. (Running Cutter which is executed while both opponents are running). And so conclude this spotlight on a few of the roster that makes up S.H.W.A, be sure to keep reading into the next year, where I will continue to bring my insightful twist on that which is the Southern Hemisphere Wrestling Alliance.

gonna cut it, so the match was turned into a tag bout. Slex and Rocky up against Sander and his partner the returning Mikey Nicholls. No one knew Mikey was in town and when his music hit, the Vasto Club erupted. Both teams battled it out in a well fought match. You can imagine how good a match can be with the caliber of talent involved, it was a treat to all the fans in attendance, and in the end Sebastian Sander scored the pinfall for the win. Mikey even got on the mic afterwards and spoke the praises of Sander who has had a great 2010 and is looking to have an even better 2011.

Photo: Tez Himself One half of the voices of Explosive Pro Wrestling, and the two time WPW Commentator of the Year, Mean Dean Olsen brings WPW all the latest on the EPW scene. Welcome to the Mean Scene, with the two time (two time) WPW commentator of the year, myself, Dean Olsen. Well, what can I say; it is an honor to receive the award for the second time, thank you. Now November 27th sure was a night to remember, if you were lucky enough to be there, Im sure youll never forget it, if you werent there, you really missed the biggest and best show of the year. Re-Awakening 9 definitely didnt disappoint, it was an amazing night of awesome wrestling action, Explosive Pro Wrestling at its finest and a card of great matches from top to bottom. Lets have a look at what went down. The first match up was the 3 way tag team title number one contenders match. It was the Blitz Team against Team All Star and the new team of AZ Vegara and Dan Moore. All teams involved got the show started in a big way with lots of fast paced offence, and you could tell all teams wanted it to be over with quickly because the winner had to wrestle for the tag titles later in the evening. Big moves were being hit all over the place and there wasnt time to blink in this nonstop tag team battle, but in the end it was the Blitz Team of Shane Haste and Alex Kingston who got the victory, and the title shot later in the night. We then had the State of Origin match between South Australias Rocky Menero and our own Sebastian Sander. Much to everyones surprise Rocky came to the ring with Victorian manager Rohan, and a familiar face to EPW, former tag champion Slex. It didnt take long until Meneros friends got involved in the match and Sander was handed the match via disqualification. Re-Awakening being a big night this wasnt

Photo: Explosive Pro Wrestling Up next was the eight man elimination match of Team McGavin vs. Team Schmidt. The teams were Gavin McGavin, Brett Foxx, Adam Banks and Ryan Dangerfield up against Gary Schmidt, JT, Hayden Zenith and the debuting Leo Pratt. The action was lightning quick having eight men involved, regular tags, there was never a dull moment. It was great to see a lot of young EPW talent on show in this match up, Foxx with his high flying expertise, put on a great show for all the fans, Banks and Dangerfield battled hard against the shifty tactics of Zenith and Pratt. The two main rivals in this match Schmidt and McGavin finally got to battle after Schmidt spent the match dodging the shoot fighter. The personal hatred between the two was too much as they fought to the outside and ended up both getting counted out, it didnt seem to stop them as they kept brawling all the way to the backstage area. In the end it came down to JT and Brett Foxx, both competitors went hard at it, but Foxx in the end scored the win for Team McGavin and JT was not happy. Having been outsmarted by a younger, newer competitor JT was outraged, and even vented his frustration by having a hissy fit at ringside. The Invitational tournament final was next, Carlo Cannon, Kiel Steria and Marcius Pitt put everything they had into a fight to be the winner of

Westside Pro Wrestling

Page 10

Australias longest running tournament. We also saw some amazing offence in this one including a tope rope overhead belly to belly suplex by Pitt hurling Hollywood across to the other side of the ring and colliding with Carlo, amazing stuff, had to be seen to be believed. Each wrestler brought their A game to the table, and it was anyones for the taking, but finally in the end Marcius Pitt nailed the F-5 for the win and received the trophy, and will also get a shot at EPW championship gold in the next year, well done and congratulations.

Photo: Explosive Pro Wrestling It was time to get hardcore next; Tyler Jacobs went up against Chase Griffin for the EPW Hardcore Shield. This match was pure violence, no gimmicky nurf guns or fit balls here, just brutal hard hitting weapons. The carnage was thick and fast in this one, after brawling all over the Vasto Club using chairs and the like, Chase was driven into a guard rail which resulted in him having a big thick gash on his forehead with blood flowing constantly. Tyler Jacobs took the advantage, beating on Griffin as he was quickly losing blood, but whatever he did Chase kept kicking out, he would not give up. Jacobs nailed Chase with a chair shot that opened up the wound further, there was actually a chuck of flesh hanging from the gash, and it was quite a grotesque sight. In the end there after showing all the heart in the world Chase was defeated by Tyler Jacobs, who is the new EPW Hardcore Shield holder. Jimmy Payne vs. Bobby Marshall in an I Quit match was next, and words cannot do this match justice, these guys just devastated each other with all sorts of weaponry. A tool box was one weapon,

then they used the contents of it, spanners, hammers and all were used and then left in the ring and they slammed each other onto them. When each man was asked if they quit, some of the responses that were said were unprintable but both men took time in the match to even tell a couple of jokes at the expense of each other. After all the brutality, including both men going through our announce table it was Jimmy Payne who was victorious, and Im sure both men were very sore the next day. The EPW tag team titles were on the line next as the winners of the first match, the Blitz Team got a chance at the fresh champions Johnny Wimbledon and Chris Vice. Despite having gone through hell to get there, Haste and Kingston came out fighting hard and fast at the beginning of the match, but as time went on the champions begun to get the advantage, dictating the pace and slowly taking apart the challengers. After utilising all the dirty tricks in the book, it was Wimbledon and Vice who won the match and retained their titles, but everyone in the Vasto Club was proud of the hard fought effort of the newly reunited Blitz Team. Now it was main event time Jamie Jurah defending his EPW championship against Davis Storm, this match had been a long time coming, and certainly didnt disappoint. In the early going Jamie seemed a little hesitant but Storm was all business. Both wrestlers were exchanging holds and battling back and forth in a top of the line wrestling match that will be remembered for years, as the match went on the intensity increased. Jurah and Storm exchanged forearms and kicks so stiff and hard it was a shock no one was left unconscious. The crowd in the Vasto Club was at fever pitch in this main event, clearly behind Storm and booing Jurah at any opportunity, it was an amazing atmosphere and in the end the ironman locked on the crossface and Jurah tapped out. Davis Storm is the new EPW champion and board of directors member, Brett Corvus came out and awarded Storm with the brand new EPW championship belt, which Storm held high with pride. So that was Re-Awakening 9, it was truly the biggest show of the year, and what a fantastic year it has been for EPW, so many great shows and matches. I would like to thank everyone who came to any or all of our shows this year. 2010 has been a massive year for Explosive Pro Wrestling and with your help were looking to make 2011 even bigger, thank you all. Until next time keep supporting local wrestling and stay tuned to epwperth.com

***** you feel like yesterdays news one thing became blatantly clear - Both Mana and Nick are lucky enough to have people from all over the world who truly care for them. I want to let you readers know that it is very hard to have people who care for you in Wrestling because a lot of the time it is a self serving business. Most would rather cut you down to get them employment or a spot and dont care about being personal or cutthroat by any means to do just that. Final Chapter for me unveiled me some real truths and people who I have mentioned before showing their true inner selves. Billy Gunn was just amazing - he has not lost a step and still looks like the powerhouse wrestler he always has been. He was professional and worked his butt off for NHPW and our fans. Mercedes Martinez my sister for life along with Nikki Roxx who both I love dearly were there for me for the entrance ceremony. Both were crying their eyes out with real emotion so much so that I had to try prop them up as they were an emotional wreck in their own way. I can still feel Mercedes hand holding mine so tight and hugging my arm while Nikki kept saying I was there for that show or Cant believe youre making me cry. That was a real moment with two true friends. Jake Bishop who was raised in the streets of Philly who as a true friend paid for himself to be here out of respect for me and just want to say goodbye to a friend. The crowd loved Jake, the roster loved Jake and as a brother I love Jake. We werent even trained in the same school but Jake came with his A Game and was definitely ON !!! I missed Jake and the girls no one could ever take those moments from me.

Aftermath Well after one of the most emotional shows I have ever been involved in Final Chapter 2010 is now under wraps. Its one I was looking forward to but was also cautious in, I officially retired from an Australian Pro Wrestling ring which I havent stated before but I will be returning to America in 2011. That tour will be my last matches ever if I even feel up to it because of the impact that Final Chapter had on so many I may not fight again. Now while it is very lonely place to be retiring as

for me makes me so thankful.

Photo: ShaunSean Promotions Last but not least I got to live my childhood dream again - for one last night Mana was a Headshrinker/Samoan Swat Team member. I faced my true mentor, idol and trainer for my last match. When Sam came off the plane he looked like a grizzly old bear, as we went to the training centre he looked like a grumpy old bear. When he took training the students were looking like man dont bother him he is a grump. But as I knew he would Sam switched on to train a couple of the students and even went so far as to allow my students to slam him and arm drag him. Bare in mind Sam just got off the plane after 30 hours and was so tired it wasnt even funny - and he is not young either. My students were privy to slamming, arm dragging and executing universals with a true legend in the business. Sam is one of the last soldiers in a respected breed of pro wrestling. He worked in the original NWA, WCCW, AWA, WCW, WWE / WWF and possessed Titles in all of them. Billy Gunns main catchphrase for the weekend was Dont blame me, Sam taught me everything I know. To say I am proud of the execution of the Main Event between Mana Polynesian Warrior, Headshrinker Samu and the Future of Island Wrestling Tama Williams is an understatement. We gave it our all and I think it is one of the matches that people will talk about for many years to come as there were A LOT of tears shed during it. We gave it everything and walked away very proud Now the thing that stunned me was I know how much I love Jake, Nikki, Mercedes and Samu. They did all the shows for me out of love - not money not glory but respect. These four soldiers were here to help me and I love them so much. They put there bodies on the line for me out of respect and as family to me. For this the realization of how lucky I am to have found true friends who would do that

Photo: ShaunSean Promotions Note to all wrestlers out there - It Is so hard to say you have real friends to look too when the chips are down. These are four who proved that when I look back at my career killed themselves on the Independent Scenes of Wrestling and who did not need my influence to get them into companies. Their in ring work got them their own reputation and success where I look at it now and I was so proud to be a part of. Our first Solid year as a solo company is now in the books - thanks to a few stupid moves where I did not even want to have NHPW running initially now we are a Go.We arent going anywhere but in saying that we are still growing and I see a lot of improvements every show in appearance, talent and emotional intensity, I myself am learning the curb of actually being in charge but after talks with Samu - I am good with the position now and have the support cast to make this happen and be something some day. In one year we boast international talent that others cant run with in there entire history. Interstate talent that are proven main event worthy and would be used on any roster in Australia. Young Talent that will around for a long time and will make an impact on Wrestling in the world not just Australia in the future, especially if I have anything to do with it. A womens division that is earning respect with top line Wrestling not Jelly Wrestling, Bra and Panties bullshit. We also had Indygurlz as a main event match which correct me if I am wrong is one of many firsts NHPW achieved this year. Women fighters from all over the world wanting to be here as part of something special. We gave it all to our supporters this year and 2011 looks to be another jump forward as well with many talents coming to Australia already sorted out,

Look forward to seeing you all at NHPW shows next year - we are slowly getting there and thankful for the support. Stick around, I promise you it will be a fun ride

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year On a Personal Note as Mana - Thank you all for the Memories Sincerely The Entire NHPW Family.

Jake Paragon has been part of the local scene since debuting in 2007 and has wrestled not only locally in WA, but also in New South Wales and South Australia. WPWs Tez got the chance to talk to the Alpha and Omega of Australian Wrestling before SHWAs big second anniversary show, Ascension II.

Wrestling, which was a mix of backyard and pro but we had a venue, and drew 250+ crowds. For a company without a professional wrestling ring, that is a huge achievement, and a great feather in the cap of the lady who ran it, Amanda. I'm still tying up with some of the same wrestlers from that very company to this day, in the professional setting of the Southern Hemisphere Wrestling Alliance, and I wouldn't have it any other way. WPW: How did you get the moniker of the Alpha and Omega of Australian Wrestling? PARAGON: Back in 2008, when I wrestled for a promotion that now officially denies that I ever existed). I was a part of the heel stable The Alpha Omega. I created the name and the angle it could follow. Due to booking issues, departing/retiring wrestlers, and so forth, it wasn't feasible to run it as a stable anymore and I was proud of the foothold it had gotten, so I decided to keep the moniker and have it apply to myself alone - and try to earn it as best I can. WPW: You had a short run as Independent Champion in late 2007-early 2008, after winning the title from Jarrad Slate. To date this has been your only title reign, was it a big deal for you? PARAGON: It was a big deal at the time. WPW: In early 2008, you go to travel Interstate for the first time to work for PWA Elite (now PWA Australia). What was that experience like for you as you were still in your rookie pro year? PARAGON: My part was fairly minor, and rightly so. Looking back I don't believe I was at a level where I should have been on the same card as some

Photo: Jarod/SHWA WPW: Before you turned pro, you wrestled for NSWA-e as Dr. Chops. Do you have fond memories of that time? PARAGON: I have loads of fond memories. It was my first experience doing anything with structured sports entertainment. It was a company dedicated towards charity and it was a group of people doing it for fun and love. Yes, it was Suburban

of the incredible talent that PWA has. It was, of course, an honour and a privilege, and I hope that if I get the chance to visit PWA again anytime soon that I can give them a much better showing than before.

WPW: Later in 2008 you along with a number of other wrestlers started SHWA. Were you nervous at all about starting a new promotion? PARAGON: I was definitely nervous, as it was a business venture, not a hobby. With hobbies you can pick it up, give it up, leave it till later, pick it up again, etc. SHWA was opened as a business. It was not created to be a flash in the pan, or an overnight sensation, or something to kill time. We started it with the full intention of creating something that would become great and stand out in the world of Australian wrestling.Two years now and we're stronger than ever, and happier than ever.

WPW: You had a great three match series against Californian, Jarek Matthews in late 2009. Do you think the series against Matthews improved your wrestling? PARAGON: Definitely. Jarek has a long history to his name and a lot of experience. It was a huge privilege to be able to fight him - especially three times! Any wrestler should leap at the opportunity to wrestle against quality international talent and I feel that in those three matches I had with him, not only did it push my limits beyond what they had always been, but I've never been the same since and it gave me lots of new motivation and inspiration to evolve and improve. I hope I get the chance to take him on again and show him what the Alpha and Omega has become. WPW: You recently returned from injury after several months off, and in a lot better shape. How much weight did you lose and how did you go about doing it? PARAGON: I lost just over 18 kgs. That is over 40 pounds, if my dodgy math is correct. I achieved it through the Body-for-Life diet and exercise program. One of my friends, Simon, clued me into it and we started it together to motivate each other to achieve the full 12 week challenge. I am very proud to say I followed the rules to the letter for 12 long and painful, yet very, very exciting weeks, as I saw the weight melting away and a physique finally appearing. I have started another program and am determined to lose another 15 kilos in 12 weeks at the time of this interview. The most important thing I learned from the challenge is that a regular human being such as myself can find a way to evolve.

Photo: Jarod/SHWA WPW: We are just a few short weeks away from SHWAs second anniversary show, Ascension II. It is a big show in the history of the company. How do you prepare for such a major show? PARAGON: I do what every fighter, every wrestler, every MMA contender, every boxer, every combatant does before a major bout. I train myself harder than ever. I put myself in the most peak physical condition I can so that when I enter the ring, I hopefully have the advantage over whoever stands opposite. To do any less is to disgrace yourself and the fans who support you. I also try to motivate my colleagues in this regard as well, as an entire card of wrestlers fighting their hardest in their best condition is what the fans want, and what they should get. WPW: What have been some of your favourite moments so far, either in the ring or behind the scenes? PARAGON: The crowd response to Chris Masters as one of SHWA's main events. The opening of our very first show in 2008. The experience of wrestling for Snakepit in Adelaide. The rib we pulled on the $oldiers of Fortune by changing their entrance music to "Big Red Car" by the Wiggles. Being a spotlighted wrestler for Westside Pro Wrestling. I've got so many that come to mind that I can't write them all down. The best ones yet I'm sure are yet to come, and hopefully someday I get interviewed again to recap even more! WPW: What do you hope to achieve in the business before you retire? PARAGON: My ultimate success would be to main event the Tokyo Dome someday, like my heroes Kensuke Sasaki, Kenta Kobashi, Naomichi Marufuji, and Stan Hansen. However, wrestling in Japan for a living alone would be enough for me to consider myself having succeeded in my vocation. WPW: Thank you for taking the time to speak to WPW, Jake.
