Impact Pro Wrestling (IPW) is a Professional Wrestling promotion based in Auckland, New Zealand. IPW is currently the longest running Professional Wrestling Company in New Zealand.


Impact Pro Wrestling was created after a group of wrestlers left the now defunct Mania Pro Wrestling (MPW) creating the wrestling banner, Impact Pro Wrestling. The goal was to continue bringing the NZ Pro Wrestling scene back into NZ households, picking up where MPW left off, while being controlled by wrestlers themselves. [ [ Meet the pro-wrestlers of Auckland] ] IPW's first public appearance occurred in April 2002 when IPW appeared at the Auckland Armageddon Convention. Although having to ship a wrestling ring up from Wellington, IPW still put on performance over three days [ [ IPW to debut at Armageddon! ] ]

2003 only had one IPW public show. During the period, Charles Warner, Cameron Bailey, and Nick Fergusson were elected as directors of the company and the company aimed to raise up to $10,000 to build a wrestling ring in which they were able to train, while training on gym mats at the Mangere Recreation Centre. By the end of 2003 however the target had been met.

By 2004 they had begun building the ring, and on May 15th 2004 IPW ran it’s first ever show, entitled IPW Genesis. [ [ IPW Genesis to take place on May 15; HAV gets hands on Daddy Kool, Playa gets title shot!] ] Since then IPW has held regular monthly shows in Lynfield, North Shore, Mangere, Wellington, Whangarei and Hamilton. Impact Pro Wrestling is currently based in Kingsland, Auckland. IPW currently consists a roster of 31 wrestlers. [ [ Impact Pro Wrestling: Company] ]
