Preview: Wrestle Rampage – Re-Emerging (7/24/20)


Whilst the eastern states of Australia seemingly slide back into a second wave of COVID-19, and lockdowns, wrestling is set to return in a big way in South Australia. On Friday, July 24, Wrestle Rampage will Re-Emerge from their hiatus with a stacked card emanating from the Lion Arts Factory in Adelaide for Re-Emerging

Joey Graham vs Punch-Drunk IstriaRe-Emerging

Prior to the shutdown of the Australian scene Graham’s group, the Renegadez, made a big play to tear down Wrestle Rampage and build it back up based on their vision. This process has caused chaos within the company, but stalwart Punch-Drunk Istria is itching to bring some stability back.

This Friday Istria will battle Graham to do just that.

Since returning to Wrestle-Rampage after a self-imposed sabbatical Graham has been unstable, going undefeated so far. This Friday he will face his stiffest challenge yet when he takes on the former Australian National Champion.

Expect a rapid and violent encounter between these two men, who are two of the best to come out of the Wrestle Rampage dojo!

Lily Blaze vs ??

Originally Lily Blaze was scheduled to make her in-ring Wrestle Rampage debut against the ‘Python Powerhouse’ Steph De Lander. However, due to travel restriction between New South Wales and South Australia De Lander has been left locked out of the state and thus unable to compete on Friday.

Despite this Blaze is determined to still make her debut on Friday and will be facing an as yet unknown opponent. Who will answer the call of the youngster?

Corndog & Tommy Knight vs Renegadez (‘Wreckin Ball’ Will Gibson & Greg Graham)

Back in January the Rengadez made an immediate impact in Wrestle Rampage by attacking Australian National Champion Rat Daddy, Tommy Knight, and Hartley Jackson.

Then again at Carpe Diem the Renegadez continued their dirty sneak attacks, but were thwarted by Corndog who joined the fight in support of Knight.

Since then the factions within the company have seen the tensions continue to simmer without opportunity for release. On Friday these tensions are set to boil over when these two teams clash in heavyweight tag team action.

Will the duo of Corndog and Knight be enough to fight off the invading Renegadez or will the alluded to “growing support” be too much to overcome.

Australian National Championship – Hardcore Rules: Rad Daddy (c) vs HavokRe-Emerging

After overcoming all of the odds on his way to capturing the Australian National Championship at the end of 2019, Rat Daddy has even more confidence than ever. Since capturing the title Rat Daddy has defeated Australian legend Hartley Jackson and rising NSW talent ‘The Prize Bull’ Sam Osborne.

Despite achieving these big milestones one man still appears to lack any level of respect for the champion. The devilish veteran Havok has set his sadistic sights on Rat Daddy and the Australian National Championship. 

On Friday Havok will get his chance at tearing the title from the grips of Rat Daddy in a match that is perfectly catered to his skill set. Havok and Rat Daddy will go to war in hardcore rules match, a style of match which Havok has proved to be extremely proficient in many times throughout the years.

With virtually no experience in this environment can Rat Daddy once again over the odds and walk out with his championship intact or will Havok finally join the esteemed list of Australian National Champions?
