John Deligiannis: ‘Bringing traditional wrestling back to this generation’




By Takis Triadafillou

John Deligiannis, also known as JJ Spartan, is a dynamic personality in the field of wrestling who has made his presence felt in the ring by winning titles that make his fellow Greeks proud.

In an interview with The Greek Herald, John Deligiannis shares about Australian Wrestling Entertainment (AWE) after a recent Halloween spectacular event at Canterbury RSL Club in 2022, where he defeated Trucker Taylor.

AWE is the biggest Wrestling company in Australia and South East Asia, Deligiannis told The Greek Herald. “The owner of the company is Sammy Russo who shares with me the passion and idea of bringing the traditional school of wrestling back to this generation.”

“Sammy has been wrestling for almost 28 years and for the last 12 years he has created this company AWE and has been doing shows in western Sydney and inland,” Deligiannis said.

The AWE Wrestling Academy is located in Belmore and the wrestlers train with the NSW gymnastics team to improve their strength and mobility. Mr Russo, the owner of AWE, also brings coaches from America and England to assist with training.

AWE is a multicultural company with a mission to give back to the community, Deligiannis told The Greek Herald. “At our company, our position is open to any questions about wrestling, especially how to integrate young guys into this sport away from the temptations of our society and become the future stars of wrestling.”

Deligiannis is also involved in creating films and documentaries to motivate young Greek girls who want to be involved with the seventh art, and to show them the “opportunities to promote the Greek element through films, series and documentaries.”
