This past weekend, our friends at the African Punishment Wrestling Association hosted their four-year anniversary show! Congrats to APWA! The following results and news items are courtesy of the APWA Facebook page:
- APWA's 4th Anniversary weekend has passed and more incredible memories were had on Friday at the home of APWA, the Danie van Zyl Recreation Centre, as well as the Alberton Tennis Club on Saturday.
APWA Heavyweight Champion El Mascarado put both his title and mask on the line on Friday against number one contender Vic Scar in a hair-vs-mask match, which is being hailed as one of APWA's greatest matches ever. "The Masked Crusader" retained in a mat epic and Scar was subsequently forced to have his hair completely shaven off.
Vaatjie and Japie (Donovan Loudmouth and Blizzard) defeated the Nigerian monster team of Joe Dozer and Kilimanjaro to retain the APWA Tag Team Titles in their second title defence.
The ongoing father-vs-son saga between Terri Middoux and Zizou Middoux saw a chaotic brawl break out between the two in the opening moments of Friday's "Wrestle Madness" event. The warring Middouxs would go head-to-head once again in a featured bout officiated by special guest referee Ananzi. After another highly emotional battle, Terri Middoux was disqualified and Zizou Middoux retained the PTW World Heavyweight Title. Allegedly, Zizou had stolen his father's oft-utilised spike and planted it strategically at the end of the match, resulting in the decision by Ananzi. As a result, an angered Terri Middoux got on the mic to challenge Ananzi to come out of retirement in March.
The history between Ananzi and Terri Middoux goes back all the way to 2008, but after Ananzi retired last year, he was briefly coerced out of it in October when Terri Middoux launched an unprecedented attack on the former WWP All-Africa Champion, in which he brutalised and bloodied his former rival with the trademark spike in front of thousands of fans at the Rhino Rally. Ananzi, who has been teasing a comeback, accepted Terri Middoux's challenge and is expected to return as soon as next week at the Randfontein show! Ananzi has also been included in the upcoming King of Africa 2012 tournament that will begin on 17 March in Krugersdorp.
Will Ananzi cope being a full-time competitor once again, and just how intense will his war with Terri Middoux become? Will Terri Middoux be able to properly focus on becoming a two-time King of Africa tournament winner considering his full plate, with Zizou Middoux and Ananzi targeting him?
- APWA Heavyweight Champion El Mascarado Mexicano left a cryptic message on social networks after his title retention against Vic Scar: " Title retained, Vic Scar is bald...I would say well done to that. But there is something that triggered me tonight and unfortunately...El Mascarado is full of hate and Anger...Not a good sign..."
Vic Scar, who was on the losing end this weekend, had this to say: "OK, so Vic is bold!! Vic says get over it!!! Vic realised a COUPLE of things tonight, stuff like unity, honour, oneness - yeah, right, look at the pics!! Noooo more!! Tomorrow I'll be there, my hair in a bin, and the show will go on! Vic hates ALL of you and you know it!! Well, Vic's hair will grow back and he'll be there till he dies!!!!"
2-time PTW World Heavyweight Champion Zizou Middoux expressed his elation following a smart victory over his father, Terri Middoux: "The party boy!!! The club sensation is still the PTW world heavyweight champion!!! Now that's party hardy!! Terri middoux! You think you are smarter then me?? You taught me everything you know!! I beat you at your own game! Now that's party hardy!!! You got DQ'ed!! I told you so!"
