PWO TV #117 – May 8, 2011 – Bane vs. N8; Fontaine’s Apology
PWO – Pro Wrestling Ohio – your televised pro wrestling alternative, with more guts, more desire, and more heart, from a young hungry roster competing to steal the show. Old school meets new age and tradition meets tomorrow, its pro wrestling the way you want it to be! It’s Cleveland-owned, nationally renowned!

PWO Title: “Most Dominant Man” Jason Bane vs. “Amazing” N8 Mattson
Jason Bane made it clear this past week on PWO TV, that he was going to be a fighting champion, accepting challenges from anyone and everyone, and his first test is this week, and is quite the challenge! The Son of Michigan is a co-holder of the PWO Tag Title, former TV Champion, and still holds the WrestleRama Trophy from a year ago, a trophy he is poised to defend next month. Bane has a clear mind and is distraction-free with the elimination of Aaron Maguire from his life after 3.5 years of torture. Can Bane keep the momentum going and build an impressive reign as PWO Champion?
Marion Fontaine Addresses Incident With Justin LaBar
Two weeks ago, after Fontaine lost the PWO Title, tempers became a little too heated between he and Wrestlezone.com’s Justin LaBar. The two had engaged in a spirited war of the words in recent months, however in the heat of the moment, Fontaine struck LaBar, taking things entirely too far. As a result, Fontaine was effectively suspended from PWO television until the situation was rectified. Mr. Fontaine has been asked to publicly apologize for going over the line, from an undisclosed location, this Sunday night on PWO TV.
PWO TV Champion Bobby Beverly vs. Corey Winters
Beverly has been on a hot streak recently, capturing his first singles title, smoothing over the tensions in Sex Appeal, and narrowly escaping the threat of Michael “The Bomber” Façade. Meanwhile, Corey Winters has been considerably less lucky, perhaps the most prominent physical and psychological victim of Krimson’s on-going war with, well, everyone. Can Corey rebound in a huge way with what many would call an upset or can Beverly thrust his way forward as PWO Television Champion?
Michael “The Bomber” Façade vs. Jason Gory w/Krimson
Two men who are hotly chasing the PWO Television Title seem to be Façade & Gory. We just mentioned how Façade was literally inches away from defeating Beverly numerous times two weeks ago, however the underhanded resourcefulness of Sex Appeal kept the gold out of the Bomber’s grasp. On the other side of the coin, it seems that Krimson & company have recently re-dedicated themselves, apparently opting to now focus on PWO Titles? Wins, losses, and especially championships have never concerned this diabolical group before, what is their motivation? What would they do with the PWO Titles if they capture them? Jason Gory may go a long way to answering those questions this week.
Homeless Handicapped Connection vs. Brian Bender & Bryan Castle
Four very diverse and unique characters, all concerned with PWO tag team supremacy. Gregory Iron & Hobo Joe have been there before, while Bender & Castle are merely starting their journey. It seems Bender wants to use his fitness, workout, and wrestling techniques to mentor someone who, well, desperately needs it. But Bryan Castle is not exactly a ball of aggression and athleticism. Can HHC get back on track in the tag ranks or can Bender & his new project start things off right?
