1 Steel Cage Match: Ananzi (with Lusinda) defeated Tornado and X-terminator in a triple threat to win the vacant WWP Intercommonwealth Championship
(WWP owner Mark Beale tried to have X-terminator removed from the match but was overruled by general manager Miss M. After the match a competitor from India, named Tiger challenged Ananzi to defend his title against him in India in September)
2. Celebrity match: Bianca van Wyk (Luister FM presenter) defeated Black Widow (guest referee: Miss M)
3. Celebrity match, Sumo rules: Dangerous Dean Biddulph (local Democratic Alliance ward councillor) defeated Daron Mann (Algoa FM DJ)

4. Monre Lee defeated Andro Perseus (from Africa Wrestling Alliance)
5. TJ Tremor defeated Jay Riddick (two developmental wrestlers)
6. Sons of Samoa (LA Smooth and Afa Jr) defeated Nightmare and Kwaito Kid to win the vacant WWP World Tag Team Championship.

7. WWP Intercontinental Champion Devon Shooter defeated The Phantom.
(This non-title match replaced the scheduled title match vs ex-WWE star Carlito who never arrived due to problems with his passport)
8. WWP All-Africa Champion Kilimanjaro (from Nigeria) defeated Brody Steel (from Canada) in a non-title match
9. Main Event: Markus Burke (from Canada) defeated Mr Wrestling (with Zelda) to win the WWP World Heavyweight Championship
(This ends Mr Wrestling’s three and a half year title reign. End came when Zelda wanted Mr Wrestling to use the title belt. While the ref was distracted, Burke used the belt on Mr Wrestling)

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.

Africa’s biggest wrestling federation, World Wrestling Professionals (WWP) held a press conference at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, announcing that early next year the venue would hold the biggest event in the company’s history, an extravaganza called WrestleMonster.
Tentatively scheduled for February 28 (subject to change), the event will be the company’s first to be tied to their international partner Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling.

Jarrett couldn’t personally attend the launch due to wrestling commitments in the United States but sent a pre-recorded message in which he indicated how important the South African market was to GFW, in conjunction with those in Japan, Mexico, Germany, the UK, Australia and New Zealand where other alliances have been created.
He announced that he would personally be coming to South Africa for WrestleMonster and a number of other shows next year and was looking at a number of South African WWP wrestlers to sign to his main roster.
Ananzi 1(WWP All-Africa Champion Ananzi)
At WrestleMonster South Africa’s biggest names including Tornado, Ananzi, Mr Wrestling and Kwaito Kid will take on international stars including American star Jarrett (a former world champion in TNA and WCW), Erin Angel (a former Bellatrix champion in the UK) and Joe E Legend (a former WWE performer who currently holds championship gold in the Netherlands).
Kilimanjaro Venda(Kilimanjaro)
Nigeria’s Kilimanjaro and India’s Sangram Singh are also on the card with more international names to be announced closer to the time.
The first confirmed match-up will see Singh facing Joe E Legend for the vacant WWP Commonwealth Championship.

The event will also feature music artists, television personalities and entertainment aimed at the whole family.
Another major announcement at the press conference was that 50% of the gate takings for the show would go towards wrestling development.
Representatives of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro Municipality and the Eastern Province Amateur Wrestling Association spoke about the initiative which would see a new wrestling training gym opened in the Port Elizabeth central business district in June 2015 with the first intake of students in August.
Kwaito 2(Kwaito Kid)
Port Elizabeth-born WWP star “The Kwaito Kid” Zama Njokweni, who himself came through the WWP developmental process, will head up the training facilities, which will be able to accommodate up to 150 wrestlers from across Africa.
