wrestle monster 2
This Sunday as part of the annual Easter Splash festival in Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth, South Africa), World Wrestling Professionals (WWP) will be holding the second edition of their WrestleMonster event at Hobie Beach between 2 and 5pm.
As happened last year, the organisation is bringing in some international stars to add to the top local talent including first time visitors Robbie E from TNA and former Legacy member Manu aka Afa Jr from Samoa.
wm renegade
WWP World Heavyweight Champion Mr Wrestling has had a long running feud with Renegade for the title, and even a recent best of three series hasn’t managed to put an end to the rivalry.
Renegade gets another shot at the title this Sunday and will be determined to dethrone the long reigning champ in a lumberjack match which will see the rest of the roster surrounding the ring.

Afa Jr will make his South African debut taking on Durban’s hardcore monster, Nightmare. Afa is a third generation star from the famous Anaoi/Uso family which includes former WWE world champions The Rock and Roman Reigns as well as Rikishi, The Wild Samoans and Umaga. His own run in WWE included being a member of Legacy alongside Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr. But will any of this help him when facing the man who stole the show winning the hardcore title at last year’s WrestleMonster?
wm tornado
Two of the mainstays of South African wrestling, hometown favourite Blacksmith and former WWP world champ Tornado face off in an I Quit match. But the loser doesn’t only quit the match – they quit the business in what is effectively a retirement match. Who will utter those dreaded words and bid farewell to the business they’ve been part of for decades?

Another Port Elizabeth-based wrestler on the card, Blacksmith’s son Devon Shooter, will have the biggest match of his career as he faces former TNA X-Division and tag team champion Robbie E. While Robbie’s TV character has often been comedic, there’s no denying his technical ability. But can the South African wrestler, who has often called himself Schoolboy take the international star to school?
wm kwaito
The third Port Elizabeth star on the show, Kwaito Kid, put up a great fight at last year’s Wrestle Monster vs PJ Black. This year he will clash with Nigerian-born man mountain Kilimanjaro with the vacant WWP All-Africa Heavyweight Title on the line. Who will come out on top in this battle of the African heavyweights?
wm ananzi
Indian star Sangram Singh clinched the WWP Commonwealth title in what many would consider an upset victory over Joe Legend last year. This year he’ll be defending the title against Ananzi, who gave up the All-Africa title in order to get this title shot.
wp hammer
Also watch out for an invasion of Durban-based wrestlers – the 031 Army – including woman Dream Child and Matthew Hammer, who will be taking on WWP’s cruiserweight sensation Hotaru.

As well as all the wrestling action, one of South Africa’s biggest music stars, Kurt Darren, will also perform at the event.
