PWA Black Label is returning with the second annual Colosseum tournament. This year the tournament is going to take place over two nights. Friday, October 18th, 2019 is going to be the opening night of the Colosseum tournament. Night one will feature the first round matches in the tournament, while night 2 will play host to the semi-finals and finals of the tournament. 8 of the very best competitors from Australia and possibly the world will compete in the Colosseum tournament with the opportunity to win an ultimate surprise. So who are the competitors that are taking part in the Colosseum tournament this year? Let us take a look at what fans can expect.
Orange Cassidy is a name familiar with wrestling fans who follow independent wrestling or have been keeping track of happenings in All Elite Wrestling as well. Cassidy is a name that is quickly on the rise among the wrestling faithful and so wrestling fans in Australia should be very excited to have such an incredible talent joining the Colosseum tournament this year. Orange Cassidy bring a lot to the table inside the squared circle and will have all the tools it takes to take himself straight to the finals. Expect Cassidy to give an incredible showing and to put forth one hundred and ten percent in each and every one of his matches.
If Orange Cassidy is a name that fans easily recognize, well Matty Wahlberg is easily the best name you may not have heard yet. Racking up a very impressive resume all over Australia, Wahlberg is like that frustrating arrogant tough popular kid from your school days. Imagine that kid all grown up now and with an appetite for destruction inside of the squared circle. Matty Wahlberg is going to make a huge mark upon the Colosseum tournament. Despite the many big names associated with this year’s Colosseum tournament, Matty Wahlberg is that one guy who is willing to do whatever it takes to come out victorious.
Chris Basso is a very well decorated wrestler who has conquered the top of Australian wrestling for quite some time. Basso is very calculated and uses his impressive grappling skills to dominate any and all opponents. Chris Basso will be a very unique challenge for whichever competitor manages to draw against him in the opening round.
The Colosseum tournament is going to be ignited with even more excitement as the current PWWA Champion Jessica Troy joins the fold. Jessica Troy has been on fire as of late. Rising to the top of the women’s division of PWA Black Label, Jessica Troy has now also shown that she fear. Regardless of the competitors that are thrown in front of her, Troy excels. Jessica Troy with all of her momentum at the moment has got to be one to really watch out for. Troy has got everything it takes to conquer the Colosseum tournament. She has what it takes to really cement 2019 as the year of Troy.
Davis Storm is also entering into the Colosseum tournament. Storm is a very lethal opponent and will give everything he has got and more during this year’s tournament. Davis Storm may not be the biggest name in the tournament, but he may end up being the most memorable one.
Now it is on to the most unique individuals in the Colosseum tournament. A name on the rise in Australian wrestling Ricky South has very strong ring psychology. Ricky South is not only great with ring psychology, but South also possesses tremendous in-ring ability. South would easily become one of the top names in all of the Australian wrestling, if he conquers the Colosseum tournament. This may just be the time where the world becomes aware of the talent of Ricky South.
NXT UK competitor is coming back to Australia once again and this time with a focus on winning the Colosseum tournament. Travis Banks has started to show the world just how talented he is inside the squared circle. Banks now is putting all of the competitors in this years tournament on notice. He is here to continue to build upon his already impressive resume. Travis Banks would have to be the odds on favorite to end up taking the entire tournament.
Sam Osborne enters the Colosseum tournament. A very big opportunity for this young man to seize his moment. Osborne could end up against top level talent, but with the right focus he could quickly turn this entire tournament around in his favor. If Sam Osborne can conquer the entire Colosseum tournament his name would sky rocket immediately.
This is how the tournament breaks down in terms of the matches. In round one we will see:
Orange Cassidy vs Jessica Troy
Matty Wahlberg vs Chris Basso
Ricky South vs Davis Storm
Sam Osborne vs Travis Banks
The tournament will see the winners go on to the semi finals. Then the finals on night number 2 will see the final two wrestlers competing for Green Thunder. The Colleseum tournament is no easy feat. At the end of it all there is such prestige and opportunity for the competitor that comes out with the victory.
