– Two huge announcements emanating from yesterday’s “The Return” event
at Danie van Zyl Recreation Centre:

The legendary Danie Brits will be returning to the ring once more! The
African Punishment Wrestling Association will be host to the comeback
of the one of the greatest South African wrestlers in memory. At the
next Danie van Zyl Recreation Centre event (date to be announced),
Danie Brits will team up with Ananzi to take on Johnny “Iceman” Sabin
and Vic Scar in an epic main event that you can only see in APWA! This
announcement came after the intense battle between the returning
Ananzi and “The Iceman”, in which Ananzi emerged the victor following
a gargantuan Top Rope Bad Habit. During Ananzi’s post-win celebration,
Vic Scar and Jay Austin took advantage of the situation and launched a
double-team assault on the former All-Africa Champion before Danie
Brits made his way out of the crowd to clean house, even getting a
moment of temporary revenge against the insult-throwing Sabin. “The
Iceman” proceeded to get on the mic and lay out the tag team
challenge, and the duo of Ananzi and Danie Brits accepted. Danie
Brits’ amazing 30-year hall-of-fame career may have culminated more
than five years ago, but Johnny Sabin’s blatant showings of disrespect
have re-ignited a fire in the legend. Danie Brits intends to beat some
respect into Sabin.

In APWA Heavyweight Title news, reigning champion El Mascarado
Mexicano defeated Jay Austin in a submission match, while Vic Scar
became the new number one contender after winning a six-man
elimination match. Mascarado and Austin are far from finished with
each other, because in their next encounter they will put everything
on the line in a ladder match! This extremely high-risk match-up will
be taking place at the next Danie van Zyl Recreation Centre show, and
knowing the lengths to which these warriors have gone before as well
as the danger factor of this rarely-used stipulation, this is sure to
be a breathtaking superfight. The APWA Heavyweight Title will be
suspended 15+ feet in the air. Who will ascend the ladder to
championship glory?
