Shock news from the world of Power Trip Wrestling :

If Power Trip Wrestling was a ‘normal’ wrestling promotion, nobody would be interested! You’re reading right now, because you can be sure that if it’s never happened before, it’s happening in PTW, or it’s going to soon. And we’re about to prove that right now.

Because Power Trip Wrestling has a new PTW General Manager.

In a shock turn of events, PTW’s promoting princess herself, Hannah, has chosen to take all rights of control and decision making away from the man with the world’s most controversial ego, P.T. Player. And she has chosen to give the general manager’s job to someone new. Someone who’s played the occasional part in Power Trip Wrestling’s history. Someone who can be trusted to give PTW some morals, values, and integrity. They say the world is best viewed through a child’s eyes…..

Yes. That’s right. The new PTW General Manager, is no less than the nearly 12 year old ‘The Future of PTW’ Drewy Staniforth. We are hearing that Hannah gave Drewy this position, as an early birthday present, and that Drewy in return has promised Hannah that he will make sure his dad doesn’t get the upper hand, and that he will stand up for what is good and right for her.

This takes PTW into a whole new world for 2011. P.T Player fights the world in his usual egotistical, controversial way. But surely, surely, he won’t do that against his son? What we do know is that Drewy’s first decision was to make a main event with PTW World Champion Snare (who has had a falling out with P.T Player, who blamed him for letting him get hurt at the last two shows of 2010), vs the returning former PTW World Champion Mayhem, vs current PTW Tag Team Champion Tommy Stevens, who will have P.T in his corner for the match.

But here’s the big twist. Drewy didn’t just make that decision…he made two, and here’s where the twist comes in. Tommy Stevens is one half of the PTW World Tag Team Champions. What happens if he was to win the PTW World Title too? Well, he’s at a severe disadvantage on the night before it even begins. His regular tag team partner, Danny Stevens, can’t make the show. And Drewy has ruled that Tommy has to have a partner to defend the titles on that night, or he will be stripped of them. All hell broke in the PTW Office, with flowerpots and T.C, the PTW Office Cat, going flying; when Drewy declared that Tommy Stevens will have to defend the PTW World Tag Team Titles on March 12th….with his best friend, P.T Player.

P.T. had a tantrum that we’re not legally allowed to repeat here, as he has said constantly that his time in the ring as a wrestler is over, and is still recovering physically from a 2010 that included four concussions, a serious blood clot on his hip, a trapped nerve in his back, broken ribs, a damaged collarbone, and more. But he simply has no choice, and we leave the final word to a nearly 12 year old boy called Drewy….

“Game on…..DAD!”.

So with a show raising money for a great cause, and such shocking twists in the PTW tale as this, can you really afford not to be in attendance on the night? We hope to see you all there….because we are Power Trip Wrestling….and we love you too!
