As the Australian wrestling scene enters into the early stages of a boom period, there are more and more shows happening around the country every weekend. As such, we’d like to welcome you to a new wrap-up column which will have results from all of the smaller promotions all compiled together in one easy to access space.
The main idea behind this column is to shine a light on the lesser-known talents as they develop their skills before exploding onto the major shows such as Melbourne City Wrestling (MCW), Pro Wrestling Australia (PWA), Wrestle Rampage and Explosive Pro Wrestling (EPW).
So here we go with the results from the weekend of January 18-20.
