Diego Del Feugo becomes Young Lion's Champion: AWF has a new Young Lion's Champion as Diego Del Fuego suckered Spaceboy Dacey into a Title bout at Australia Vs The World on 12 May, and with the help of Anubis underhandedly duped the Spaceboy out of the belt.
AWF would like to congratulate Spaceboy on a tremendous Young Lion's reign, and also is interested to see how Del Fuego will fair as Young Lion's Champion. Credit where it's due, Diego has been successful in AWF, and is undefeated in singles action, and now brings gold to the Multicultural Society. AWF management wishes Diego Del Fuego a successful reign. A swag of Young Lion's competitors are waiting in the wings to now challenge Del Fuego, including Detective Magnum Holmes.

Dean Draven Title Shot in Waiting: Stemming from his win at Best of The Best, The Panther Dean Draven still has an AWF Title shot at any eligible title up his sleave. It seems like Draven is waiting for the prime opportunity to strike. It will be interesting to see how and when he chooses to go after championship gold.

Injuries Update: •The Illusionist returned to action at recent AWF events, making an impact with victories on the Gold Coast, and returning to the AWF Championship scene at Parramatta with partner DJ Fusion defeating The Island Tribe at Australia Vs The World.
- Jack Tasman suffered a foot injury at Supanova Melbourne and missed some bouts over the weekend. He returned hampered at Gold Coast and Parramatta, and is blaming his defeats on his injury.
- Powerhouse Theo suffered a strong head blow at NWA World Title Bout in his bout against Rob Barnes, but was ok shortly after and did not miss any scheduled appearances.

Attend a Live Event!: Unfortunately our last events in Blacktown and Parramatta were not well attended. A lot of efort goes into the shows and they are a lot of fun, but without more support they may not survive forever. We urge our supporters to spread the word and bring friends to the upcoming live events to secure good attendances and keep quality pro-wrestling events alive in these venues and others in the area.
