NZPWI Mission Statement
To increase the profile of pro-wrestling in New Zealand (local and international promotions)
To remain the leading source of pro-wrestling information in New Zealand
To continue to be the voice of New Zealand pro-wrestling fans

The New Zealand Pro Wrestling Informer (NZPWI) is New Zealand's #1 pro-wrestling website - and we don't want to coin a phrase, but it's a site made by New Zealanders, for New Zealanders.

We are dedicated to bringing you all the latest information from a kiwi perspective and guarantee that if it's pro-wrestling related news in New Zealand, you'll read the official word here before any other single media source!

nzpwiCreated in April 1999 and going on to become one of the longest serving professional wrestling sites on the Internet, NZPWI has amassed millions of hits and has been the mouthpiece for New Zealand pro-wrestling fans for ten years. Amongst our proudest achievements are:

  • promoting the biggest New Zealand-based professional wrestling event in over 20 years: The NZPWI Invitational. The 2006 and 2007 events were highly successful shows, both being aired on SKY’s the BOX

  • working directly with the promoters of the WWE RAW, SmackDown and ECW tours to New Zealand, in a consultation and promotional role since 2003 (including making the first official public announcement regarding the shows)

  • working directly with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) to raise the promotion’s profile in New Zealand (including running competitions with the promotion)

  • working directly with World Wrestling All-Stars (WWA) for the WWA Reckoning show in New Zealand in May 2003

NZPWI also prides itself on being the mouthpiece for New Zealand pro-wrestling fans - a role it continues to this very day. NZPWI lists among its achievements successfully campaigning Sky Television to purchase and air the following programs:

  • WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony
  • WWE Saturday Night's Main Event
  • WWE RAW
  • WWE SmackDown
  • WWE Raw X Anniversary Show
  • WWE The Stone Cold Truth
  • WWE Global Warning
  • WWE Pay-per-views
  • TNA Pay-per-views
  • WWA Live Events

It would even be fair to say that if you’ve seen any kind of wrestling on Sky, we’ve talked them into airing it!

NZPWI also speaks to the biggest pro-wrestling talent on the planet. Among the many international stars, our interviews include:

  • Kurt Angle
  • Bret “Hitman” Hart
  • Chris Jericho
  • Sting
  • Shane McMahon
  • Samoa Joe
  • Matt Hardy
  • Batista
  • Mr Kennedy
  • Christian Cage
  • Ric Flair

And many, many more! We also have a number of interviews available from our own homegrown talent.

NZPWI Contributors have also been Media Accredited by World Wrestling Entertainment for live shows and tour publicity, giving even greater access to WWE Stars. In addition, NZPWI have been involved in Sky’s wrestling specials for WWE tours. Editor-In-Chief Dion McCracken co-hosted the 2007 WWE In New Zealand show, as well as WWA: The Reckoning.
