‘Te Tahi – The One’ retains the title on Hyundai Code!

All Black legend Glen Osborne called it “the most scintillating match I’ve ever seen” while New Zealand Maori Rugby coach Jamie Joseph was left speechless as ‘Te Tahi – The One’ Vinny Dunn retained his IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship against a fast-paced and arrogant challenge from former champion Jon E. King live on New Zealand television for the first time ever!

From the outset, when the two combatants joined the other guests on the Hyundai Code couches, the battle was on; with jibes directed to each other as the hosts attempted to calm the tension.  But with the IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship on the line, the first time a New Zealand title has been defended on live television, the passions were high and the champ and challenger were barely able to be held apart!

But once the bout hit the ring it was all on, with fast paced action exciting the audience as King and Dunn battled for the upper hand as the adrenaline flowed from such a high profile match.  But it was the reigning champion ‘Te Tahi’ who stood strong, frustrating King at every turn until the former champ felt forced to pick up a steel chair to slow his electrifying opponent down.

But at that moment Kiwi rugby league legend and Hyundai Code co-host Ruben Wiki intervened, grabbing the chair to prevent King swinging it down upon Dunn’s head.  And Te Tahi seized the moment to roll King up with a schoolboy pin to retain his IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship!

And, as the credits rolled over Hyundai Code, Reuben Wiki leapt from the top turnbuckle with a huge splash on the hapless Jon E. King below!
