Redefining Wrestling Entertainment- SPW Boiling Point 2019
Singapore Pro Wrestling (SPW) held their most recent event (SPW Boiling Point) on 22nd February 2019 showcasing their most up and rising stars together with the well known local stars like The Horrors (My Personal Favourite!), The Statement, Aiden Rex, Destroyer Dharma etc. In collaboration with Malaysia and Thailand's stars Shaukat (AWGC Jr Heavyweight Champion), Feral Alliance, P-Nutz and many more, the sold out event at Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations (Toa Payoh) was a massive success!
There has been a larger following with SPW as of the recent years. New talents are also surfacing by making appearances in house shows and other events. Some notable mentions would be Big Good Jack, Luna and Selina. All the wrestlers under SPW have been redefining what it means to be in a wrestling entertainment business. Namely, Kyle "The Trickster" Black. This 20 year-old young star who never fails to put on a "Magical" performance has captured the hearts of many local fans with his unique in-ring trickery! He has proved to many that only the size of his heart filled with passion is of utmost importance when it comes to pursuing a dream.
The most recent match during SPW Boiling Point kicked off with a lionhearted promo by The Trickster along with his partner Judas defiantly challenging Thailand's wrestling veteran P-Nutz. A brawl broke out during the entrance of P-Nutz and what was supposed to be a 1-on-1 match became a 2-on-1 match where the notorious duo of The Trickster and Judas (known as the Social Misfits) were adamant on sending a message that the "future is here" by assaulting P-Nutz. The brute strength of P-Nutz versus the chaotic style of Social Misfits sparked an enthusiasm and energy through the crowd as the brawl spilled outside of the ring! The Trickster made his usual awe-inspiring impact by making canes appear out of thin air, using them as foreign objects against his opponent. This time, there was even a fire eating act which caused some fans to shriek at the sight of it! The match came to an end as the Trickster got pinned after P-Nutz struck a hellacious Hurricane Lariat on him. Even though the Social Misfits came short, their valiant effort may have proven that they are indeed the future of SPW.
A new dawn is being born in SPW as younger talents have begun to take centre stage. With continuous effort and hard work, these talents would definitely be able to change the dimension of Wrestling Entertainment in Singapore! Lastly, though The Trickster may be a joy to watch, never ever trust him! Not only does he wear his heart on his sleeves, he always has a few tricks up them too! You've been warned.
