THE STORM IS OVER
Shining Nick Silver and Sammy V have returned to New Zealand after training at "Lance Storms Wrestling Academy" and now they give us their final thoughts on the experience:
Shining Nick Silver:
After being away for too long, I (The Shining One) your hero, "Nick Silver" have returned to this land of my birth. Canada, the great frozen north held many things for me. The bear, the wolf, the eagle. But I went there for one thing, Lance Storm; One of Canada's greatest professional wrestlers who agreed to allow me to step into his ring and train in the art of professional wrestling; and now I return to you, ready to take to the ring once again, facing the best New Zealand can offer.
So Sammy V is back to my home New Zealand now. 3 months away in a foreign country was tough i'll admit. The food was weird, people couldn't understand my 'accent' and I got lost a few times in this city that was -30 degrees. But now i'm back and i'm ready to fight. I'm bigger, faster, stronger and so much more wiser from my training at Storm Wrestling Academy. I feel like a veteran and i've only been doing this a year. It's so good to be back home and now I can start Sammy V's very own legacy. I'm coming for titles and I'll fight anyone I'm put up against. Even if its my training buddy in Calgary 'Shining' Nick Silver. It's domination time!

Due to unforeseen circumstances "Alfred Valentine" will no longer be competing at "Right2 Rumble"
"I am disappointed to hear this, but the show must go on.."
Therefore; I have decided to give Tykade a preview of whats to come at "Nightmare", he will now be facing someone who can match him size for size;the dark soldier himself"Axl".
Posted on November 30, 2010 by:
The last two matches have finally been announced:
Tykade vs Alfred Valentine (Non-Title)
In order to prepare Tykade for his monumental match against Reuben De Jong at Nightmare, the CWO (Rehua) has organised with the IPW commissioner (Dion McCracken), a one on one match against the veteran of IPW wrestling Alfred Valentine at "Right to Rumble".
"I know Tykade has the power, but against Alfred Valentine, we'll see if he has the skill".
Dal Knox, Travis Banks & J.C Star vs Vinny Dunn, A-Class & Ninja Fury
(6 man Tag Match)
This is a much anticipated match up and to make sure it is a truly special event the CWO has called in a special guest referee to oversee the proceedings; none other than "The Silencer - Jean Miracle".
"Who else can bring that touch of class to a show but Silencer".

IPW wrestler "Mischa Ivanoff" has asked the CWO of NZWPW (Rehua) if he could take part in the 15 man inter-promotional "Royal Rumble" in Levin on December 3rd. The CWO has agreed to this but not without consequence to Mischa:
"Mischa must prove his worth to me if he wants to be included in the Rumble, therefore, in order for him to be accepted he must fight a WPW wrestler first.. and just to make it interesting, he must issue an open challenge to any wrestler in the WPW roster. Once he has done that he is then allowed in the Rumble".

The C.W.O (Rehua) wants to end the year with a bang so has decided to take the last WPWshow back to his home town of Levin. The show is called "The Right 2 Rumble" and will feature some of the best wrestlers from bothIPWand WPW and will culminate in an Inter-promotional Royal Rumble, the likes of which haven't been seen since the PWI Invitational. It will also potentially give participants from IPW's "Rival Turf" a chance to settle old scores.
Not only will it be one of the best WPW shows of the year; but thanks to negotiations between IPW and WPWmanagement, it will also be a preview of great things to come.
I'm announcing two matches now; as I want to wet your appetite, and then I will announce more as it gets closer to the event"
First matches announced:
- Link Van Haggard vs Mikey Rave vs Rocketman vs Johnny Idol
(High Flying Fatal Fourway)

Four classmates and I stay at a house owned by Mr Storm. The house is a nice 2 storey place, fully furnished, close to shops and handy to the academy.
My house mates come from Scotland, England, America and Canada, and they are also training with Mr Storm. In the mornings, we all get up at 9 so we can watch Spongebob with our breakfast. Then it is off to the academy for training, and usually after that, I head to the gym for a workout.
We are a little over halfway through training at the academy, and I have decided that I will make my return to the southern shores after New Years to take advantage of the NZ version of summer to thaw me out from my time in the great frozen north.
After 6 weeks here I am really enjoying my training. I have become a lot stronger and have put to practice a lot of Lance Storm's training and advice. We have started to have matches and in my first fight I dominated some skinny kid from my class. I'm hoping to learn some more cool maneuvers and dominate a few more people in the coming weeks! I'm back in NZ on the 30th of November and can't wait to get home!
