10/10- New Matches And Developments for Oct 15th.
“Hotshot” Danny Duggan vs. “Fabulous Creebird” Billy Blaze added to Oct 15th.
A first time ever encounter has been signed for this Friday’s event in Winnipeg when “Hotshot” Danny Duggan goes head to head with Billy Blaze. Danny Duggan is fresh off of winning and losing the CWE title in the same night as well as losing the tag team titles later in the week. Determined to get back on track Duggan is also determined to get some answers from new champion Mentallo and address AJ Sanchez for costing himself and Omega the tag team titles.
With the Fabulous Creebirds seemingly drifting apart or falling apart on how you view it Billy Blaze has an opportunity to step up and secure himself a big time victory that can help climb up the CWE ladder on his own. With Duggan’s mind and focus split many ways this very well could be the opportunity Blaze and the Creebirds have been waiting for to end their ever growing losing streak. Blaze joined the Creebirds with a vision of reaching the top of CWE, he now has that chance all on his own, or will Douglas and Chevy be close behind?

PRESS RELEASE : Power Trip Wrestling under new management, new investment, and more
Power Trip Wrestling has always been the ‘reality TV’ of professional wrestling. We’re as real as it gets, we don’t hide our feelings, and we do things our way. We’ve been featured on national television twice in a year (Sky Digital’s ‘The Community Channel’, and BBC2), we’ve been featured in various forms of media, have been featured on BBC Radio live; and have strong and firm beliefs in our charity work.
Petey Staniforth has always been the man behind Power Trip Wrestling, and the name people think of when they think of PTW. A controversial, outspoken, but deep down good intentioned character; Petey has decided that after three and a half years, after many injuries suffered this year (four concussions, two of them in one week, a serious blood clot on his hip, damaged ribs, and more); that it’s now time for something of a change, for him to take something of a step back; for the future of PTW itself.
And so, we bring you to the announcement that not even the PTW wrestlers know, as we start a whole new era in Power Trip Wrestling. Simply, Petey is no longer running the show, and has legally signed it over to it’s new owner, who is already attracting sizable funding and investment from local businesses.
Who is the new owner of PTW? Her name (that’s right, HER name), is Hannah Johnson. And she’s promised big, very big, changes on all levels. This includes top name talent from the UK, and abroad, a higher level of advertising, and so much more.
Power Trip Wrestling has always been ‘The Promotion The Competition Doesn’t Want You To See’. And we still are. But the one thing that’s for certain now, is that the competition now doesn’t get a choice in the matter, as PTW’s profile will go up even further, and we are looking to literally blow them right out of the water once and for all.
At PTW, we’ve always gone by a catchphrase of ‘Living Loud’. Well, from now on, the PTW Family (the wrestlers, and the fans), will be ‘Living Louder’!
