The first match of the night treated the audience to an international 3 way battle between Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. Singaporean Aiden Rex (pictured center), matched wits against Hong Kong's Bitman (pictured right) and Thailand's Paksa (pictured right)
After a being away for close to 4 months, the wrestlers of the Singapore Pro Wrestling (SPW) returned to thrill audiences once again in Toa Payoh this July. We managed to catch the action and brought you some highlights from their latest outing.
The Thai Paksa moonsaulted his way to victory against his two opponents after they put up a strong fight against him.
Match 2 saw newly single competitor, Dave Vindictus (of GST infamy and pictured right), against Thai face Baki (pictured left). The 2 competitors started their match off with some comedy routines as a way to garner some laughs from the crowd.
The Singaporean heel (right) eventually manages to beat his Thai opponent into submission to win the night's second match.
The 3rd match of the night's festivities was a six man battle royale that saw the debut of newbie Rowdy Ranga (pictured in the air) as he faced off with SPW vet Sayn (better known as Ah Bang Wrestling).
Sayn and his fellow combatants, JD and Thaibarian manage to eliminate Rowdy Ranga. JD (in white) and Thaibarian (wearing facepaint) then powerbomb Arsenal Affi right after he entered the ring.
With Affi stunned, Sayn, JD and Thaibarian turn their attention on ganging up against the returning Trexxus.
Trexxus (left) and Affi (right) eventually eliminated their rivals and fought against each other with Affi finally throwing Trexxus over the rope to clinch his hard fought victory in the six man battle royale.
The 4th match of the night pitted Singaporeans Mighty Arrow against Thai bruisers Bad Company. Mighty Arrow put up a good fight against the Thais for a little while, going as far as to gang up on Bad Company's Golem Thai.
The Thai tag team eventually came back with a vengeance and flattened Mighty Arrow's Black Arrow with a double power bomb for the win.
The women's match of the night saw Singaporean Alexis Lee overpowered by her Malaysian opponent, Scarlet Lyd.
The 2nd last match of the night saw the Singaporean The Eurasian Dragon challenge MYPW's champion, Shaukat, for the Malaysian championship. Shaukat easily plowed through his Singaporean opponent, remaining in full control for most of their match.
During the match's climax, The Eurasian Dragon somehow manages to pull off a lucky pin against Shaukat to win the match and become the new Malaysian Champion.
The D, Shaukat's rival from MYPW, uses the new development to repeatedly insult and taunt the former Malaysian Champ for losing the title to a Singaporean. The dejected former Champ shuts his rival up by landing a Rock Bottom on his rival winning over the Singaporean crowd's adoration in the process.
The night's main event saw a rematch between the Statement Andruew Tang and the Japanese Cima for the SPW championship belt that the Statement had won back by cheating in Kuala Lumpur. The Statement spent most of the match being overpowered and overwhelmed by his determined Japanese opponent.
The Statement eventually wins his title defense with some help from his friends who laid Cima out on his back for Tang.
