NZPWI Rankings (October 2014)
The IPW Champion continues to look untouchable in the ring with his victory over Alfred Valentine at Battle Scars to retain the title and score major points in the battle between The Investment and The Origin. Fury will next defend the IPW Championship against former Investment member Pat Schisk in November.
Roberts chalked up his first defense of the Hughes Academy Championship with an impressive win in a four-way elimination match, overcoming Ben Mana, Hotaru, and Kade Morgan at the Live Pro Wrestling event. To make his night even more impressive, the Hughes Academy Champion warmed up with a tag team bout earlier in the evening, teaming up with Bryant to take out Ben Mana and Paul Sayers.
October was a great month in the career of Travis Banks. The Bulls native took Jakob Cross apart in a Battle Scars brawl, and then turned in a strong performance at Armageddon in Auckland – where he teamed with WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan for a high-profile win against Aaron Henry and Fury.
TnT defended their IPW Tag Team Championships twice during October. The Origin duo first retained their titles against The Investment’s Curt Chaos and Vinny Dunn at IPW Battle Scars, and put their belts on the line for a second time at the Auckland Armageddon Expo where they made short work of Khan and Taylor Adams.
Schisk started the month of October slow with a tag team win at IPW Battle Scars, and then took the Armageddon Expo by storm when he picked up the Armageddon Cup, beating Curt Chaos in the tournament final. The win earns Schisk an IPW Championship match against Fury—who he also beat in tag team action—at Last Chance later this month.
Curt Chaos lost more than he won in October but still wrestled in several high-profile bouts, including a tag team title match at IPW Battle Scars, and the finals of the Armageddon Cup tournament in Auckland.
The leader of The Origin, Alfred Valentine headlined IPW Battle Scars in a clash with The Investment’s IPW Champion, Fury, coming off second-best but continuing the war between the two factions.
Dunn watched as his tag team partner, Curt Chaos, was pinned by TnT at Battle Scars, perhaps costing The Investment a chance to hold the IPW Tag Team Championships.
Idol scored a disqualification win over Khan at Battle Scars, but turned it on in an impressive showing at the Auckland Armageddon Expo, winning the Armageddon Rumble and going toe-to-toe with IPW Champion Fury in an exciting title bout.
Kingston Eclipse overcame his first hurdle as the holder of the Jackson Shield when he beat Maniacs United founder JPE in the main event of Reined In 1.
