Wrestlers ‘set to riot’

Wrestlers ‘set to riot’

It’s time to get excited as professional wrestling returns to Mount Gambier on Saturday, December 30.

Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre will host an exhilarating night of entertainment, courtesy of Riot City Wrestling.

RCW is a promotion based in Adelaide, known for hosting live wrestling events featuring local and international talent.

They have a dedicated fan base and a reputation for developing wrestlers who go on to achieve success on the global stage.

RCW events combine athleticism, storytelling, and audience engagement, offering an exciting form of family friendly entertainment.

One of the highlights of the event is the return of local brothers, Nick and Travis Cleves, who go by the ring names Nick and Jett Armstrong.

Hailing from Mount Gambier and having ventured to Adelaide to pursue their wrestling dreams, they’re back to showcase their skills in front of their hometown crowd.

Another local talent Rocco Reid is set to make his Mount Gambier debut, and although he’s only new to the art of professional wrestling, is extremely excited to be able to perform in front of his friends and family.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be performing in The Mount again after all these years” Travis said.

“The whole RCW roster is extremely excited, but it’ll be extra special for me and Nick to be able to show the town the kind of talent Mount Gambier can produce.”

RCW has a well-earned reputation for creating world class talent and played a pivotal role in the career of the currently ranked number one women’s wrestler in the world, WWE World Champion Rhea Ripley.

Ripley, a product of RCW, began her journey right here in South Australia before taking the world by storm.

She performed at the Mount Gambier New Year’s Eve festival between 2013 and 2016 before moving to the United States to become a WWE superstar.

This is a testament to the calibre of talent that RCW fosters and the world-class entertainment you can expect at the show.

It’s been nearly two decades since the town hosted a professional wrestling event of this scale, and the anticipation for the return of RCW is extraordinary.

“The last time we had a show like this was back in 2007,” Travis said.

“We have loved coming down for the New Year’s Eve festival, but this show at the Wulanda Centre will be another level for us. We’re ready to blow the roof off the place and show the town a night that will be talked about for years.”

Tickets are available now from outix.com.au, which you can find links to at www.riotcitywrestling.com or their social media platforms.

You’ll want to be quick as front row tickets sold out within the first day, but you can still purchase general admission tickets, which are $29 for adults and $15 for children under 15.

It’s a show suitable for wrestling fans, families and those simply looking for a great night of entertainment.
