Blue Mountains Pro Wrestling made a successful debut on Sunday, June 1 at the Blackheath Community Centre in front of an excited crowd of more than 100 people.

The afternoon of wrestling action saw round 1 matches in the inaugural World Heritage series to determine the very first world heritage champion.

The first match of the night saw Newcastle's Jack Bonza against "Gladiator" Apollo, Apollo getting the win with a pump-handle slam and advancing in the series.

Up next was the Blue Mountains own wrestler from Little Hartley, Hank Barrington, defeating Melbourne's Benny Factor in a intense bout.

Women's wrestling was brought to the Mountains for the first time as one of Australia's best, Shazza McKenzie, got the win over Coby Star.

Two of Australia's very best were next to lock up in the ring as "Green Mountains" Mick Moretti battled Robbie Eagles. Eagles picked up the win with the amazing 450 splash off the top rope and will advance in the World Heritage series.

Tag team action was on the card as the young pairing of Bee Boy and Randal was victorious over Australia's strongman Concrete Davidson and Rainbro.

In the main event it was TV's Iron Jay from the fish finger commercials, returning to the ring after six months away due to a torn bicep, taking on the veteran Bishop Sommers.

In the end, Sommers proved to have too much for Iron Jay and advanced in the World Heritage Series.

The promoter of Blue Mountains Pro Wrestling, Marek Indyka, said it will return to the Blackheath Community Centre at the end of August.
