Live, Loud and Local Wrestling In Goodwood

Get up close with the action and learn how you can train like a wrestler.

They say that pro wrestlers learn to fall. Well you can get up close and personal as they suplex, bodyslam and power bomb each other, and find out for yourself. The  African Wrestling Alliance (AWA) is bringing the House of Pain back to Goodwood on 4 July 2019 at the Goodwood Civic Centre.


WHAT IS THE HOUSE OF PAIN
The House Of Pain is an annual staple on the AWA calendar. It could even be considered South Africa's version of WWE's Wrestle Mania.

This year there will be five matches, which includes two title bouts. The show will be capped off by a 22-man battle royal main event.

Local superstars like Vinnie Vegas, Mad Jack Maverick, Johnny Palazzio and Mike Xander will crowd the ring trying to toss one another over the top rope. The last man in the ring wins.
