1st June 2010
- Autumn is another season in the record books now, with it being notable that all Championship's remained intact and many new wrestlers emerged, including the formation of a new faction.
- Massive Q remains Australasian Champion fending off all competition in his rampage across Australia during Autumn. Q has defeated top line competitors TNT & Robbie Barnes (NSW), Krackerjack (VIC), Kyote and Sorrow (QLD) amongst others, and even two men at once on a few occasions. The amount of title defenses in such a short time shows that he is being a fighting champion, despite constant back up from his partners in "The Freakshow". Upcoming bouts will see him face Mick Moretti at the AWF Dojo "Mid Year Mayhem" event, and he will have a title defence against Blakestone on 9 July at The Cube in Campbelltown. Love or hate him, Q has had a dominant first few months since becoming champion.
- AWF Tag Team Champions "The Cornershop Connection" have also remained on top of the Tag Team heap, with victories over all current regular tag teams. Traffic's recent singles bout with Kasey Jackson at The Cube on 16 April however did not fare so well. He was pinned after distraction from Selene. Frankie Fettucini will have the pleasure to attempt to revenge his partner, as he will face Jackson at the Cube on 9 July.
- "Mint Condition" Mick Moretti's Young Lion's Championship reign heads into its ninth month, and the competition keeps coming. In March Mick downed contenders from Qld in the form of Mason Childs and Josh Haze, plus fended off new challenges from Emo Kid Rain and DJ Fusion. Upcoming at the Dojo on 26 May, will see Moretti face Massive Q in a special Champion versus Champion non-title bout to mark the middle of the year.
- Congratulations to Powerhouse Theo as he has passed the 1 Year mark of being AWF Commonwealth Champion. Autumn saw Theo defend once again in heated bouts against the likes of Tama Williams and Mark Hilton, but the strength and momentum of Theo again proved to be too much as he triumphed in victory. Bill Flyswat has stated that his new faction of "Elite Wrestling" is targeting Theo's Championship, and want the bragging rights to end his reign. Upcoming at the AWF Dojo on 26 May, Powerhouse will face Korea's "The Masked Musa" and then has future challengers such as Flyswat, The Samoan Warrior and Sir Loin all lining up for Title shots.
- For those of you who didn't know, AWF has a new website layout up. It's at our same address www.awfwrestling.com.au .

- Miscommunication has been aplenty in the Team Astronomy Camp at recent events. At Cessnock in March the team went down to "Island Tribe" team of Tama Williams and The Samoan Warrior, and then April they lost to friends The Illusionist and Gravity. At the Fighting Spirit event on 22 May, Robbie almost had the AWF Championship won until Spaceboy entered the frey to defend Mighty Mel, but in the process threw Rob's "Winning formula" potion into the ring, which Q grabbed and drank. Q then manhandled "The Scientist" and Massive Splashed him for the win. Afterwoods, Spaceboy petitioned Q for a bout at a future card to The Scientist's apparent disdain. Mighty Mel has been in the middle of it all trying to keep the team on track, and win the Tag Titles back, which they vacated in December due to the team miscommunicating again and not showing up to the Central Coast event on time.
- TNT was ambushed by The Freakshow after his Title shot on 16 April at The Cube and received bruised ribs after a series of Massive Splashes. After a stint in the hospital, TNT returned to action in a bothered state at the 22 May Dojo event against Freddie Falco and Bill Flyswat. Despite the injuries, TNT says he will fight on, and is looking forward to his big 15 Year anniversary event at Panthers on 27 August with a bout against India's Sonjay Dutt. Tickets are available from Panthers now.
- Korea's Masked Musa makes his debut at the AWF Dojo on 26 June. Many are asking who this oriental warrior is? He is said to have an impressive martial arts background and has spent time in the Korean Military. His translator told AWF he is coming to win Championships and break week young Australians.
- Speaking of newcomers, Emo Kid Rain, Anubis and Baby Devine all debuted on recent events. AWF welcomes Owen Fitzpatrick to working behind the scenes.

Must be competent, have transport, & good personal skills. The perfect chance for those wanting to break into the wrestling business, especially behind the scenes to help make a difference.

- Blakestone has apparently more than raised the ire of "The Freakshow" with his recent rescue of TNT, and then defeat of Pestilence and Il Cognito at the 16 April Cube event. Massive Q says he is looking forward to dominating Blakestone at the huge Cube event, and Blakestone's mission of winning the AWF Australasian Championship this year will end there. Be sure to be at The Cube on 9 July. Tickets available at the AWF website, or on The Cube website or the Campbelltown Catholic Club from 12 June.
