AustralianWrestling.org will soon feature cartoons by Mister J. Mister J is a cartoonist with Pro Wrestling Illustrated and has been called 'The Voice of QLD Wrestling'.

I'd like to personally thank J for this.


AustralianWrestling.org would like to apologise for some inaccurate information. I had listed AWA in Queensland as inactive - due to a rather long gap between promoting shows, and what was perceived as inactivity. I've since been informed that AWA has in fact, not closed.

AustralianWrestling.org always intends to deliver only factual and accurate information.


Melbourne promotion Professional Championship Wrestling (PCW) was featured on tonight's (Feb 1, 2012) episode of Channel 10's 'The Project'. Link is below.





AustralianWrestling.org now has a YouTube channel. The link is above. I'll be using this to post video clips from the history of Australian wrestling. While the intention of posting videos is to recognise and celebrate Australian wrestling - we understand if you don't like any clip we've uploaded from your promotion. Please be assured that we are only uploading with good intent and have actually denied YouTube's offers to monetise clips. If however, you wish for a video to be removed from the channel; please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

1973 Big Bad John Interview

Firstly we have a clip from a 1973 episode of World Championship Wrestling in which Mike Cleary interviews Big Bad John, following a handicap match where his charge - Abdullah the Butcher has just squashed Petro Skepetes and Jim Dimerous. The interview targets Mark Lewin.

Andre the Giant Interview in Australia (1980)

Secondly we have an interview with Andre the Giant following a handicap match with Bobby Ragan and Andy Harpas. This was taken from a 1980 episode of World of Championship Wrestling. I have since been informed that this was filmed on July 1, 1978 - first aired December 14, 1978 and later re-aired during the 1980 episode that I've taken it from. Big thanks to Geoff Brown for the date clarification.
