Opponents who notice that Tank is a little shorter than the average wrestler soon note that he is markedly wider than the average wrestler, and the extra girth certainly isn't made up of flab! Stocky, powerful and vicious, the "pocket battleship" of PWE seems purpose built for grappling. If his physical prowess hadn't already made him a formidable opponent, his determination and brutality would.
Entering into the professional wrestling business in Australia after seeing an advertisement calling for prospective wrestlers, Tank brought his grappling martial arts background learned in cage fighting championships into a new arena. Already having trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu for 18 years (achieving the rank of second dan), Tank entered into the Australian professional wrestling scene under the tutelage of George "the Hitman" Julio. Already an Australian legend, George Julio runs a tight ship and Tank found the pro wrestling training even tougher than training for cage fighting!
Nevertheless, Tank persisted and eventually managed to carve out a good 12 years in the Australian wrestling scene, primarily in the Gold Coast area, wrestling for such Australian professional wrestling companies as NAW, MPW and PWA. It is this experience that Tank brings to the ring which makes him - in part - such a tough opponent.
Eschewing the high-flying style for a more mat-based approach, Tank is the first to admit that he comes from the "old school" and offers less flying and more impact to opponents. In the man's own words, "Showing off's for circus bunnies!" He certainly enjoys a good brawl in the ring, but the thing enjoys the most is angering his opponents and the fans with his villainous tactics and aggression - by his own admission, it makes him smile! If Tank doesn't have the entire crowd hating him by the end of his match, he feels he hasn't done his job!

Scarlett has made an impact since her first appearance in a wrestling ring. She debuted in April 2012, and a month later competed in a Battle Royale at Mayhem to determine the first ever NZ Womens Champion, and has kept herself in the thick of women's wrestling in NZ ever since. Her many trips overseas to hone her skills against more experienced opponents, both male and female, have paid off, and her arsenal of devastating suplexes, and vicious strikes, led her to rack up victories up and down the country.
Scarlett has proved time and time again that she has what it takes to truly make an impression on fans, being a crowd favorite no matter where she appears. However, we've certainly seen that this nice girl can have a nasty streak if necessary, so opponents should be very wary not underestimate her ability to get the job done!
