Pro Wrestling Ohio TV airtimes this week –
Sunday night, July 4: 10:00 PM & 3:30 AM
Saturday, July 10: 2:00 AM
Scheduled line-up –
Johnny Gargano To Confront M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross
For months, a mystery assailant has been attacking countless members of the PWO roster, from behind and without witnesses. It seemed all fingers pointed to PWO Champion Johnny Gargano as the guilty party, as all victims had ties to him as recent challengers to the PWO Title. This theory was seemingly confirmed by the most recent victim, M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross, who claimed he saw Gargano attack him, and produced evidence in the form of one of Gargano’s wristbands left on the scene. However, last week, amateur video footage sent in by one of our fans (as seen here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulHXKfqq3L8) clearly showed M-Dogg sabotaging the attack, planting Gargano’s wristband and setting the entire scenario up as a way to destroy the image and reputation of PWO Champion Johnny Gargano, stemming from months of building frustration over Cross not receiving his own PWO Title opportunity. Johnny Gargano had few words following the viewing of this footage, and was clearly dead-set on revenge. This Sunday night, both Gargano & Cross are scheduled to be in attendance, and Johnny Gargano will finally come face-to-face with the man he now knows has made his life and career absolutely miserable for the past six months.
PWO Tag Team Champions Sex Appeal Battle Brian Bender & A Partner Of His Choosing
One week removed from screwing Gregory Iron & Hobo Joe in their tag team title opportunity by using a contract loophole to make the match a 3-on-2 handicapped match, Sex Appeal step back into action and are certainly all about showing off and bragging about once again outsmarting their “inferior” opponents. This week, they accept a challenge from Brian Bender. Bender has spent months in a verbal war with former PWO Tag Team Championship partner Ernie Ballz over which of them truly carried The Clash tag team to prominence. Bender hopes to prove he is truly the best at leading a team, as he chooses a partner to lead into battle against PWO’s best. Whom will Bender choose and how will they fair against Pro Wrestling Ohio’s elite tag team?
PWO Television Champion Omega Aaron Draven vs. Shiima Xion
Aaron Draven captured his 2nd PWO Television Title a week ago with his defeat of “Amazing” N8 Mattson and, much like his first reign, Omega wants no rest and will accept all challengers to prove himself and the value of being PWO TV Champion. Shiima Xion, “The Filipino Flex Factory”, has been on a roll, gloating about injuring Michael “The Bomber” Façade by blinding him with Façade’s own spray-paint, and hiring the ruthless and dangerous Gambino Family to send a message to Façade’s running buddies, Louis Lyndon & Flip Kendrick. Shiima looks to rebuild momentum lost by his loss to Façade here this week by defeating the PWO TV Champion. Can Omega continue his winning ways or is Shiima poised to give the PWO TV Title a hostile makeover?
“Big Bear” Ben Boone vs. Corey Winters w/Ernie Ballz
With N8 Mattson banned from the state of Ohio due to his unprofessional and violent outbursts after losing the PWO Television Title after PWO TV went off the air last week, the Big Bear of the Son of Michigan is going it alone, but that shouldn’t be much of a problem, as Boone is closing in on two years without being pinned, a flawless record since aligning with “Amazing” N8. Boone hopes to continue that streak this week against Corey Winters, who since aligning with Ernie Ballz has struggled to say the least. Is Ernie focused on making Winters and Eric Ryan a great tag team? Or merely re-living his own past success? If Ernie doesn’t have Corey totally focused on what’s important, we may see the next victim for Michigan’s unstoppable Big Bear.

Commerce City, Colorado – Coming off the heels of one of the most shocking scenes in IWF History, we are proud to announce the Colorado return of world renowned wrestling superstar, “The New F’n Show” Jerry Lynn on Sunday, July 11th LIVE at the Buffalo Rose in historic Golden, Colorado! Lynn has secured his name in wrestling history with a stellar career that has included successful tenures in ECW, WCW, WWE, TNA and most recently a World Heavyweight Title run in Ring of Honor. In his most anticipated visit to Colorado yet, he takes on one of the Rocky Mountain region’s most popular competitors, “The Denver Daredevil” Rob Ryzin in singles action. There is something special in the air whenever “The New F’n Show” comes to town, and this event promises to be no different. Even more intriguing, this bout is only one half of the Pick Your Poison Challenge charged unto both Ryzin and hated rival, Jay Synn just last month.
Pick Your Poison Challenge
“The Denver Daredevil” Rob Ryzin vs. “The New F’n Show” Jerry Lynn
On June 13th, the rivalry between Ryzin and Synn finally drove Commissioner Bigg Mike over the edge. He demanded both men participate in a Pick Your Poison Challenge, in which each would choose the other’s next opponent from the entire IWF Premier Pro roster. After Ryzin revealed his choice, Synn panicked and changed his choice to none other than Jerry Lynn. The Denver Daredevil was thrilled to hear the news, as he’s been a long time fan of Lynn and views this as his greatest opportunity to truly make an impact in the business. Ryzin has garnered a lot of fanfare locally for his fast paced aerial feats, a style Lynn has perfected over the past 2 decades. If you’ve ever been a fan of professional wrestling, this first time ever bout is not something you’ll want to miss!
Pick Your Poison Challenge
“The Razorback” Jay Synn vs. Hoodlum
With an entire roster at his disposal, Rob Ryzin’s choice for Synn’s opponent was one of the only men whose power can rival the Razorback’s, Hoodlum. Both men have IWF Premier Pro Champion on their resumes, and each crave another run with the strap. Hoodlum has suffered a recent drop in the IWF Rankings following a loss to current champion, Adrian Grimm, and a win against Synn would go a long way in climbing back up the ranks. The feud with Ryzin has enveloped Synn, and he’ll have to be careful not to overlook a very qualified opponent.
Last Man Standing Match
A3 Cup Champion Chris Wrath vs. The Miracle That Is Tony
There are no more words to be spoken. The careers of these two young fighters have mirrored one another, as they’ve clawed and scraped to get ahead of their bitter rival. Wrath was the first to score championship gold, and that infuriated The Miracle. Some may call it jealousy, others would say Tony’s claims of superiority are justified. On July 11th, none of that matters anymore. The winner of this blood stained war will be crowned in a Last Man Standing Match to end it all. These men have fought countless battles across the state that have wowed local audiences, and garnered critical acclaim for their athleticism and technical prowess. Golden, Colorado will be the location as these two will turn the Buffalo Rose into a warzone with bragging rights on the line. There is no telling what depths each warrior will go to in order to assure their nemesis won’t answer the 10 count.
After an hard fought title defense against former champion, Hoodlum, IWF Premier Pro Champion Adrian Grimm suffered one of the most shocking beatdowns in IWF HIstory at the hands of Trajan Ender. The fans in attendance sat in shock as Ender emerged from the locker room, and attacked the champion with a sickening display of blunt force strikes that sent Grimm to the hospital with numerous contusions and a severe head injury. During the carnage, he screamed a lyrical tirade at Grimm, calling him “pathetic”, claiming the belt will soon be “where it belongs” before making an exit. The Reaper’s status for July 11th is unknown, but will be addressed at the beginning of the evening. As for Ender, his actions have not gone unnoticed by the IWF Booking Committee, and the IWF Commissioners will decide if he’ll suffer any repercussions.
Also appearing are IWF Tag Team Champions The Associates, Arik Angel and Mr. Paul, Prodigee, Wayne Thomas, Brandon Morris, Johnny Crash, Bud Doobie, Jeb Bunyan, Bronx, Ronin the Rock -n- Roll Vampire, Joey A., Tony Morales, Sensei Dalton, Rob Buster, Scott McLovin’, Owl B, Commissioner Bigg Mike and probably a few other surprises. This card is subject to change.
The Buffalo Rose is located at 1119 Washington Avenue in Historic Golden, Colorado, just South of Highway 58. Showtime is 6:00 PM, and doors will open at 5:00 PM. All seats are General Admission, so show up early for best seating. Presale tickets are only $7.00, and may be purchased online at www.iwfpromotions.com until 11:59 PM on Friday, July 9th.
