PREVIEW: IWA Wrestling on Aurora TV

Stephan Cool from Hot Commodity,
one of the stars of IWA's new TV series on Foxtel


JUST watched a preview tape of the first episode of IWA Wrestling, premiering on Foxtel's Aurora (Channel 183) at 9pm on Monday, September 3.

As has been stated in the past, this is the first time in 30 years that home-grown wrestling has been screened on national TV.

Sydney-based IWA is one of the best promotions in the country and features such top talent as Mark Mercedes, Rob Matrix, Tyson Gibbs, Brett Brady, Hot Commodity (Stephan Cool & Billy Cole) and the Bastard Brothers.

As for the TV show, considering it was made on the smell of an oily rag, I quite enjoyed the 30-minute episode. The action was solid and the vignettes and interviews were, generally, entertaining...although Rob Matrix needs to work on his promos.

Overall, I hope fans support
local wrestling by catching this show when it screens on Aurora.
