For the first time anywhere, we can officially confirm the following matches as taking place live on April 18!

PWO Championship: ?M-Dogg 20? Matt Cross defends against Johnny Gargan this match still PWO Champion? Or can the cocky immature man long said to be the future of the region rise up and capture the PWO Championship?

#1 Contender Match: Jason Bane vs. Mike Tolar
After the sneaky and conniving way Johnny Gargano captured the #1 Contendership, PWO management could not possibly deny the other two challenges involved – Jason Bane and Mike Tolar – another opportunity to prove themselves. They will meet once again, with the winner of the bout slated to meet the winner of M-Dogg 20 vs. Johnny Gargano, and PWO’s NEXT live event slated for Saturday, June 6. Jason Bane has been screwed TWICE out of the PWO Championship by Josh Prohibition, as part of Josh’s jealous rage over being out of the PWO Title picture that has been building for a number of months. Mike Tolar has been on a meteoric rise ever since coming out on top following his rivalry with Greg ?The Hammer? Valentine. Perhaps PWO’s two most physically impressive specimens will meet one-on-one with the winner challenging for gold LIVE on June 6.

Josh Prohibition vs. Gregory Iron
Josh Prohibition was reportedly irate when he was told about this match-up, stating he deserves to be competing for the PWO Championship and not against a ?crippled freak?. Josh must surely take pride in seeing his long-time ally Johnny Gargano challenging for the title he has so desperately craved. However, Josh can?t overlook PWO’s cerebral palsy sufferer, as Gregory Iron has defeated several unsuspecting opponents in the past. Iron has had recent difficulties with ?DeeeLicious? Jimmy DeMarco, but has to be totally focused on what could end up as the biggest win of this young man’s inspirational career. Will Josh successfully use Greg to send a violent message to PWO management or can Greg Iron leapfrog Prohibition in PWO Title contention?

Update on Hobo Joe & Aaron Maguire
Last month, Hobo Joe discovered a discarded scratch-off lottery ticket near his ?home?. Upon scratching it, the dumpster dweller found he?d won $25,000, much to the dismay of ?house?-mate Aaron Maguire, who was given the ticket by a frightened passerby, only to discard it when he found it wasn?t cash money. Maguire is in desperate need of paying off his gambling debts to Marshall ?The Bull? Gambino, or he risks ‘sleeping with the fishes?. How will Hobo Joe adjust to this new lifestyle? And how will Aaron Maguire deal with this predicament?

PLUS: ?DeeeLicious? Jimmy DeMarco, Virus, Super Hentai, Marion Fontaine & Noj The Wild Samoan, ?Bloody? Morty Rackem & Matthew Justice, Dawn Decadence, and a whole host of others, plus bonus matches PWO’s affiliate WASP!

And Marshall ?The Bull? Gambino, despite not being a part of the PWO roster, has promised to appear, and has also stated he’s bringing back-up!

All this and SO much more April 18, don?t wait to hear about it later or see it on television, be a part of it live! And check back in the coming days for MORE match announcements!
