PWO FIRST TV TAPING A SUCCESS; TV DEBUT ON 11/3!
This past Saturday night, Pro Wrestling Ohio, perhaps the most talked about new promotion in wrestling today, held its first live event and television taping at the Lakewood Masonic Temple in Lakewood, Ohio just outside Cleveland, and to say it was a success may be an understatement. The event, from the opening bell to the main event, was a fact-paced adrenaline-fueled showcase of what the PWO roster is capable of, complete with a raucous crowd of fans who came out in mass to support the beginning of the PWO era. It was an absolutely electric atmosphere and the best part about it is… it was only the beginning.
For those of you that did not have the opportunity to join us this past Saturday, and for those who did who can’t wait to re-live the excitement, don’t miss the much-anticipated debut broadcast of PWO on Sports Time Ohio on Saturday night, November 3 at midnight! For details on how to get Sports Time Ohio, see below.
Pro Wrestling Ohio promises to bring you 60 minutes of the most exciting, action packed, entertaining, and unpredictable professional wrestling action you’ve ever seen. PWO will raise the bar like never before in Ohio, and present a product wrestling fans will appreciate and be proud of. The broadcast will be hosted by esteemed play-by-play commentator Joe Dombrowski, alongside controversial color analyst Jamie Scott.
PWO’s DEBUT television broadcast on November 3 features the following:
“M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross vs. “Fabulous" John McChesney
Two of the fastest rising stars in independent wrestling today will meet one-on-one for the glory and recognition of being named the victor in Pro Wrestling Ohio’s first ever main event. One athlete, Matt Cross, has been a staple of professional wrestling in the Cleveland area for years, and after his pay-per-view debut with Ring of Honor just weeks ago, arguably the biggest star it has produced in the modern era. M-Dogg is a physical marvel, a former professional gymnast, who brings a level of agility, balance, and quickness seen nowhere else in professional wrestling. He’s been dubbed the “Innovator of Aerial Insanity", for not only using, but perfecting, countless high-risk death-defying offensive moves. His rival John McChesney has also been on a meteoric rise, throughout the tri-state area and beyond. The Fabulous One has captured championship gold throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, and has made his mark nationally in memorable appearances on WWE Raw, Smackdown, and TNA Impact. M-Dogg 20 and John McChesney will meet one-on-one on PWO’s debut broadcast November 3!
V Squared vs. Cut Throat Crew
The excitement and unpredictability doesn’t stop with the main event, as two of the area’s brightest, fastest, and most breathtaking tag teams will be on display against one another. One team features an established commodity and a wildcard: Former tag champion Virus and his conspicuous tag partner: Virus Grande? Virus Grande is a change from Virus‘ usual Q&A partner Unknown, currently out nursing an injury, but will these two masked marvels be on the same page for their PWO debut? On the other side of the ring, very unorthodox and very unusual, but also very talented… The Cut Throat Crew. Their name really says it all, as these athletes bring a very cutthroat, ruthless, and also very exciting style to the ring. Their intensity and mindset is an attitude not seen since the days of angry bloodthirsty pirates patrolling the high seas. The Cut Throat Crew have used that pirate-esque lifestyle as the basis for their careers, and it’s led to nothing but success. Will this gang of thieves be successful in their PWO debut or will V Squared put an end to their swashbuckling ways?
Johnny Gargano vs. Gregory Iron
On August 5, 2007, Gregory Iron, the most inspirational athlete in Ohio, an athlete who has persevered through personal hardship and physical deformity in the form of cerebral palsy to press on, grow stronger, and follow his dream of being a pro wrestler, almost saw his career and life itself come to an abrupt and ugly end. A severe concussion following a brutal in-ring beating left Iron with bleeding in the brain and a future filled with uncertainty. For over two months, Gregory Iron recovered, trained, and balked at the doctors who told him he had no choice but to retire. PWO’s debut broadcast is Gregory Iron’s grand return to center stage, to do the one thing he’s dedicated his life to achieve… however, his return match pits him against one of the most selfish, thoughtless, and most talented men on the roster, a very dangerous combination. That man is Johnny Gargano. A 20-year-old prodigy who has already accomplished more than most athletes twice his senior, Gargano will no doubt do anything it takes to make his mark and become noticed in PWO, at the expense of Gregory Iron’s well-being, career, or potentially his life. Will Gargano use Iron to make the ultimate statement or can Gregory Iron prove that that which does not kill you only makes you stronger?
PLUS: The PWO debut of the unorthodox Hobo Joe, plus an appearance from Josh Prohibition, and more!

Fallen Angel to Bless Montréal
TNA’s Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels, perhaps the greatest technical wrestler ever to hold the X-Division title, is coming to Montreal on November 3rd to wrestle for the International Wrestling Syndicate. And he will be coming into collision with Quebec’s finest technical wrestler of right now, the IWS Canadian Champion Max Boyer during Freedom to Fight 2007.
IWS Freedom to Fight 2007 Card:
Saturday, November 3rd, 2007
Bogey’s 3250 Cremazie East
(Corner Cremazie and St-Michel)
Montreal, Quebec, CANADA
Main Event: TNA’s Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels vs. IWS Canadian Champion Max Boyer
IWS Tag Team Title Match: IWS Tag Team Champions The Super Smash Brothers (Player Uno and Stupefied)
vs. 2.0 (Shane Matthews & Jagged)
Special Stipulation: Two out of Three Falls
IWS Title Match: IWS Champion and Owner PCP Crazy F’N Manny will defend the title against a mystery opponent
Kid Kamikaze vs. Jimmy K
The Missionaries of Violence (Eddy and Lufisto) vs. EXesS and Tomassino
Freedom to Fight Detailed Preview
2007 was the year that the rest of North America caught up with Quebec and California and realized that Kevin Steen is one hell of a wrestler – something that Christopher Daniels knew back in 2004, when he made a trip to Quebec City to face someone that few outside of Canada had ever heard of... and walked out muttering about the truck that had just run over him with the license plates marked: Kevin Steen.
Now Christopher Daniels is coming back to the province of Quebec, this time to Montreal, as a new Quebecker looks to begin to walk down the path blazed by a man that he trained with. They know his name in Philadelphia, they shout his name in Quebec. He is a former CHIKARA Young Lions Cup Champion and he is the current and reigning IWS Canadian Champion. Right now, he can lay claim to being the best technical wrestler in Quebec, maybe in all of Canada. On November 3rd, Max Boyer will face his biggest challenge to date as TNA’s Fallen Angel comes to town.
Win, lose or draw, it is sure to be one hell of a match.
This would be the point where IWS Owner PCP Crazy F’N Manny would like to me to remind fans that this match will be non-title, because “There is no damn way in hell that I am paying to fly in Christopher Daniels month after month!" To say that Max is pissed about Manny saying that he can’t beat Daniels would be understating things by about 1000%.
A relative newcomer to the IWS will also be stretched to the limit. A candidate for IWS Rookie of the Year, Jimmy K takes on the technical mastery of Kid Kamikaze, the man who stretches other wrestlers in ways that not even Mike Quackenbush has names for. Jimmy K has been winning fans over with his match heroics, but look for Double K to trip up the rookie to slow his momentum... and then step on his head.
Speaking of head – okay this is a really obvious segue to Sexxxy Eddy, the IWS’ resident porn star. At Freedom to Fight, Eddy is putting back together his team with Lufisto, The Missionaries of Violence. Whether Eddy and Lufisto are still on the same page remains to be seen, but they will have to knock the rust off their tag team in a hurry, because their opponents, the IWS’ resident bullies, EXesS and his hulking protégé Tomassino will not be taking it easy on Eddy and Lufisto.
Also in tag team action, the new champions, the Super Smash Brothers will defend their gold against the old champions, 2.0. Jagged and Shane Matthews exercised the clause in their contract giving them an automatic rematch and went a little further into the fine print, discovering a clause that let them pick the stipulation. As “The Most Professional Tag Team in Wrestling"...
They make me say that.
2.0 decided to pick an old school stipulation to give them the advantage. Their choice: Best Two out of Three Falls. As an old school fan myself, I applaud their choice, but I am uncertain that it will really give them an advantage...
Ackbar: It’s a TRAP!
The way that I see it both Player Uno and Stupefied are heavily influenced by Lucha Libre – Mexican wrestling. And while you would never be able to tell it by watching Jack Black’s comedy, the fact is that virtually every match in Mexico is wrestled under best two out of three falls. Or as they call it in Mexico – just a sec I’m checking with Uno – Primera Caida, Segunda Caida and Tercera Caida. Something tells me that it is the Super Smash Brothers who have the advantage in this match.
But what do I know, I’m a big fat Super Smash Brothers mark.
More matches will be announced during Freedom to Fight including the opponent for IWS Owner PCP Crazy F’N Manny who will defend the IWS title that he just stole from Viking with help from the surprise traitor Beef Wellington at Blood, Sweat and Beers
If we ran shows in the United States, this would be where I called Beef the Benedict Arnold of the IWS, but since Benedict Arnold actually saved Montreal from being sacked by the Revolutionary Army when he changed sides… we kind like him up here, which is why we stock Benedict Arnold Kettle Chips right next to the Laura Secord chocolate bars.
Also appearing during Freedom to Fight will be the SLI 2007 (Fred la Merveille and Kenny the Bastard), Dan Paysan, Twiggy, and Franky the Mobster amongst others.

PCO in England
Pierre Carl Ouellet left his job as the French commentator for TNA on RDS (The Quebec version of ESPN) to accept a nine month booking with Craig Dixon’s All-Star Wrestling in England. http://www.bigtimewrestlinguk.com/
Curiously, PCO’s replacement at RDS was the man that he just confronted at our last show Blood, Sweat and Beers 2007 Sylvain Grenier.
Initial reports of PCO’s arrival in the UK have been very favourable.
Posted by “BESTMAN" on the UK Fan Forum (www.ukff.com )
“I headed to Ashton on Sat night to see him (PCO). We spoke for quite a while after the show and he talked about his age at the time of his WWF runs and how that it was too much for him too soon. He was only in his early 20s at the time. I talked about his IYH match against Bret and that it was decent and he said he loved working with Bret and also Shawn. Really nice guy and well worth going to see."
While in England, PCO was called upon to wrestle in an ECW dark match against Tommy Dreamer, a man that PCO is very familiar with stemming from his days in ECW when Peece was challenging Justin Credible for the ECW title. Again he got rave reviews.
Adam from England (by MSN)
Peece got loads of heat during the match, crowd were well behind Tommy. It was very basic, Tommy got a little bit of offence early, Peece got the heat for a good 3-4 minutes, Tommy made his comeback, swinging DDT for the pin. Wasn't a bad match at all.
Wasn't your standard WWE squash match you sometimes see on these shows. Got a hell of a lot of offence in to say he's just in for one night.
They worked well together, really wouldn't have looked out of place on a very poor ECW show otherwise.
We wish PCO all the best in England. (Also Germany, because a little birdy tells me he may be hopping across the channel to wrestle for wXw www.wxw-wrestling.com )
Mr. India is from Quebec?
This is one for the books.
Tiger Ali Singh’s Universal Wrestling Stars promotion is doing a one week tour of India and a number of Quebec stars have been invited including Kacey Diamond, Misty Haven and Josianne the Pussycat. Sonjay Dutt will also be on the tour. The only other light heavyweight on the roster is “Mr. India". So expect “Mr. India" and Sonjay Dutt to be clashing in several matches over the week.
The odd thing is that “Mr. India" is a former IWS Canadian Champion who makes his home in Quebec, is hugely popular in Ontario and hails from Campobasso, Italy. Must be some sort of witness protection thing. So to protect the Dapper Don’s safety, we won’t say his name and you didn’t hear it from me. Capiche?
