Eclipse retains title at Thrills N’ Chills
Eclipse retained his title against “Rufguts” Roddy Gunn in the main event of the evening.
The match was about more than just the Jackson Shield, with Eclipse out to avenge his non-title loss to Rufguts at last month’s Underground 3 event as well.
TV3’s Jenny Suo was at Thrills N’ Chills to capture the action for a segment that aired during Tuesday’s Newsworthy broadcast.
“There are times where I can’t go on but I feed off the crowd and the crowd wanted me to keep going on,” Eclipse told Newsworthy. “I guess that uplifted my fighting spirit.”
Charlie Roberts became a two-time KPW Tag Team Champion when he and Bryant defeated Bull Addams and Stix, The Tauranga Connection, at Thrills N’ Chills. This marks the first KPW tag team title change since November 2013.
Roberts also holds the Hughes Academy Championship, making him one of the few men in history to hold two New Zealand titles at the same time.
