5. TWA Tag Team Title Match, The Best Around (TJ Cannon & Bruce Maxwell) successfully defended the titles against Matt & Bryan Logan when the Logan Brothers were disqualified.

Goodhart has said he is contemplating what course of action to take, but is going to take some time to “cool down” before making any official decision. This may very well have been Corino and Dimension’s last appearance in the TWA. Stay tuned to find out more at www.twaprowrestling.com

Official final card –
PWO Title Match – “The Whole Shebang” JOHNNY GARGANO defends against “M-DOGG 20” MATT CROSS
Johnny Gargano spent much of the past 12 months doing everything he could to be a fighting champion, and to correct the demons of his past and be a champion based on respect and competition. However, when a mystery assailant began mysteriously attacking all of PWO’s top title contenders, the finger of blame was pointed squarely at Gargano. After months of being accused, ostracized, and kicked out of the locker room, videotape evidence proved that Gargano was an innocent man, and it was all a scheme devised by Matt Cross in order to tarnish the reputation Gargano had worked so hard to repair. Cross was upset over Gargano not granting him the PWO Title shot he had promised him last fall. Gargano had attempted to fulfill that promise, but an overwhelming list of title contenders and schedule from PWO management made the task next to impossible. Now, Cross has gone to desperate lengths to force PWO and Gargano to notice him, and receive the opportunity he’s waited a year and a half to receive. Cross fights to reclaim what he feels should have never left his possession – the PWO Title and the recognition of being the best wrestler in Ohio. Gargano is fighting for pride, for his reputation, and for his dignity – to undo six months of torture, and avenge six months of hell in one night. Who will prevail and be the undisputed PWO Champion?
Wrestling Legend “Hacksaw” JIM DUGGAN vs. “Megastar” MARION FONTAINE
Marion Fontaine has been very outspoken and critical of PWO all year, claiming their haphazard marketing ideas nearly led to the ruination of his career. After several very public and heated confrontations and rants, Fontaine was given what some call an opportunity to prove his claims as true, and others call a very deserving punishment for his selfish and demanding personality. Fontaine will battle a true legend of the sport… “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan! Hacksaw has been in the professional wrestling industry for 30 years, and is one of the most endearing and long-lasting personalities of all time. Duggan has captured numerous championships and has competed for the WWF, WCW, WWE, and countless other organizations. On August 1st, Duggan comes to Cleveland to meet his many fans, and to beat some respect into Marion Fontaine. Can Fontaine prove his claims or will Hacksaw prove who the real tough guy is?
RAVEN’s RULES: RAVEN w/Aaron Maguire & Mr. Brinks vs. JASON BANE
Evil agent Aaron Maguire has been at odds with Jason Bane since PWO’s inception in the fall of 2007. Maguire has tried everything and everyone to eliminate Bane from PWO, but nothing has gotten the job done. This past fall, Maguire placed a bounty on Bane’s head – anyone who could end Bane’s career would receive a very large cash reward upwards of $100,000. Still, no one got the job done, and Bane used the adversity as motivation, getting himself in the best shape of his life and proving why he is PWO’s “Most Dominant Man”. Maguire refused to be defeated, so he dug deep into his pockets to hire the services of Raven to meet Bane on August 1st and collect the bounty himself! Raven is one of the most feared and sadistic athletes wrestling has ever seen, a man who takes pleasure in inflicting pain on others, and has dominated ECW, WCW, WWE, and TNA, usually bringing recklessness and chaos along with him. On August 1st, Raven comes to Cleveland with Agent Aaron Maguire and Aaron’s bodyguard, Mr. Brinks, but Jason Bane is more than ready. This match favors Raven, however, as it will be under “Raven’s Rules”, meaning Raven himself sets the rules to the match, which usually results in NO rules! Will Aaron Maguire get his wish or can Bane overcome the biggest threat posed to him to date?
PWO Tag Team Titles: SEX APPEAL defend against THE HOMELESS HANDICAPPED CONNECTION
Sex Appeal have reigned a top the tag team scene since the start of 2010. With an unmatched confidence and overbearing ego, Bobby Shields, Bobby Beverly, and Nicki Valentino have considered themselves superior to all other athletes, not only because of their self-proclaimed sexy appearances, but also by the diabolical minds behind them that have kept them a step ahead of all their challengers. Two men Sex Appeal look down on more than anyone are “Handicapped Hero” Gregory Iron, who has battled cerebral palsy all his life, and Hobo Joe, a down on his luck street-dweller used to fighting to survive. Sex Appeal deemed these men “inferior” to them in every way, and took great pride bullying them, injuring them, and outsmarting them. Bobby Beverly has especially targeted Iron based on an incident last year where Iron knocked two of Beverly’s teeth out, sending the superficial star into a panic. However, Iron & Hobo played upon Sex Appeal’s insecurities to goad them into one final match against them… only it would be No Disqualification! Sex Appeal proved they have an ugly side with a recent vicious attack on Greg & Hobo on television, but are they ready for the wild environment of No DQ on August 1st with the PWO Tag Titles at stake?
PWO Television Title: “Omega” AARON DRAVEN defends against “Big Bear” BENJAMIN BOONE
Aaron Draven is PWO’s first, and only two-time, PWO Television champion. After being defeated for the title by N8 Mattson early this year, and injured by Mattson’s “Sons of Michigan” protégé “Big Bear” Ben Boone, it seemed Omega would be out of the title picture permanently. However, Omega returned six weeks later and, showcasing his trademark desire and ability to downplay and block out pain and injury, Omega pursued his goal until he not only received another title shot, but re-captured the gold! When a contract stipulation prevented Mattson from receiving a rematch, he sent the 270 lb. Boone in his place, with a focus and intensity we have seen building for months. Since aligning with Mattson, no one has been able to pin Ben Boone, a streak that has lasted nearly two years! Boone is at his best as he looks to take the PWO TV Title back to Michigan, but Omega will have to beat the near unbeatable to survive. Can Draven find a way to do what no man has done in two years or will the PWO TV Title return to the Sons of Michigan?
KRIMSON vs. SUPER HENTAI
Krimson is a tortured soul, and the embodiment of evil. After ten years in wrestling, and many false promises and broken dreams a long the way, Krimson has unleashed his inner anger and is determined to take it out on the entire wrestling business. Krimson has injured countless young wrestlers in an attempt to inflict the same hurt onto wrestling that wrestling had thrust upon him. However, Super Hentai has stood up for these young athletes. Trained in Japan, Hentai stresses respect, discipline, and honor. Hentai works tirelessly as a mentor and trainer to wrestling’s young stars, looking to help the next generation instead of destroy it. Now, the best way to help is to destroy the growing cancer known as Krimson. Can Hentai save the PWO locker room from pure evil or will Krimson continue to run rampant?
SIX MAN TAG: MICHAEL “The Bomber” FAÇADE & AEROFORM vs. THE GAMBINO FAMILY & ???
When Michael Façade embarrassed Shiima Xion by handing him his first loss in PWO, Shiima went off the deep end and made it his mission to make Façade & his friends suffer. Shiima attacked Façade during an interview and blinded him by spraying him in the eyes with Façade’s own spraypaint. Meanwhile, Shiima hired the returning Gambinos, Mickey & Marshall, to travel to East Lansing, Michigan to attack Façade’s newfound running buddies, Louis Lyndon & Flip Kendrick, collectively known as Aeroform. However, just as Shiima & The Gambinos seemed most dominant, Façade & Aeroform regrouped, and officially united as The Ninja Elite Squad! After a warning message was sent to Marshall “The Bull”, Façade brought new meaning to “eye for an eye” as he blinded Shiima with spraypaint, much as Shiima had done to him. Now, Shiima is injured, as The Gambinos prepare for battle against Façade & Aeroform. Who will their partner be? Can The Gambinos still finish the job given to them by Shiima? Or can The Ninja Elite Squad survive the hit?
SIX MAN TAG: ERNIE BALLZ, ERIC RYAN & COREY WINTERS vs. BRIAN BENDER & THE PUERTO RICAN WRECKING CREW
The Clash, Ernie Ballz & Brian Bender, dominated tag team wrestling in PWO in 2009, but when an injury struck Ballz down, the team destructed. Both men began to take credit for the team’s success… Ballz blaming his ever-present confidence & strategizing, Bender giving credit to his natural athleticism and ability to carry out the plan. Since then, Ballz has taken to managing the young team of Ryan & Winters, though his Clash-like strategies haven’t been embraced by his new-found team. Meanwhile, Bender has recruited the very men who injured Ernie Ballz in the first place, Luis Diamante & Isaac Montana, The Puerto Rican Wrecking Crew, in order to help his cause. Which of these men can best lead a team? We shall find out August 1st as they both lead charges into battle!
PORTIA PEREZ vs. BEN FRUITH
Portia is an internationally-renowned women’s star and one of the most respected in her field. Though, after some lackluster success in PWO it seemed she began to lose her mind. Convinced she, as herself, couldn’t compete in PWO, she transformed herself into “Dr. Monstrous” a less-than convincing superhero alter-ego. Her opponent is Ben Fruith, PWO’s gullible loveable loser, who has been forced into this match by the Sons of Michigan in order to prove he can do just ONE thing without screwing it up. Ben has been the victim of abuse and torture since day one in PWO, and with his dubious “Fruith Roll-Up” maneuver, hopes to finally score a victory. What will happen if Ben Fruith actually wins? What will happen to him if he doesn’t?
