Fallout From Our Biggest Event Ever – PWO Wrestlelution 3 – Updates On Many Top Stars!
Nearly 2,000 fans were on hand to watch PWO raise the bar again this past August for our signature show, PWO Wrestlelution 3: A Defining Moment (available on DVD now at!). This Sunday will be our first glimpse at many athletes since that career-altering day. PWO Champion Johnny Gargano will join us to update us on his condition, mentally and physically, after a wildly personal and jaw-dropping battle with “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross this past August. Some rumors have surfaced questioning the overall health of our champion. Has the grueling schedule and psychological stress that Gargano has been under finally gotten to him? And what’s next for the “Whole Shebang”?

“Megastar” Marion Fontaine thought Wrestlelution 3 was his time to shine brighter than ever before as he faced the legendary “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. However, things did not turn out quite as Fontaine had planned, as his pre-occupation with ending the legend’s career with Duggan’s very own 2×4 led to his ultimate demise. Fontaine is NOT scheduled to appear this Sunday, but has made it known that he will be in attendance anyway and will not wait around for a “hand-signed invitation from the crooked officials in PWO management”. What does Fontaine have in store and what will say, and about whom, this time?

Aaron Maguire hasn’t been seen on PWO TV since being beaten and humiliated by PWO’s Most Dominant Man Jason Bane, as well as Maguire’s one-time hired gun, the diabolical Raven. After Bane survived Raven’s onslaught, including Bane kicking out of Raven’s DDT before pinning Raven in the center of the ring with the Baneline, Bane set his sights onto Maguire, a confrontation years overdue. With Maguire’s bodyguard Mr. Brinks already wiped out, and Maguire blaming Raven on his latest failure, Aaron was left without a friend in the world. What will Maguire’s condition be in and how will he react to being unable to stop the machine that is Jason Bane?

TV Title #1 Contender Match – Michael “The Bomber” Façade vs. Matthew Justice
Façade and Justice spent much of early 2010 battling one another for the right to challenge for the PWO Television championship, with no clear decisive better man ever determined. With TV champ Omega Aaron Draven battling through his own injuries, suffered in his PWO Wrestlelution 3 match where he became the first man in two years to pin Benjamin Boone, and worsened at a recent live event match against Paul London, Omega will be intently watching from the sidelines as two of PWO’s most innovative and gutsiest daredevils take to the air for attempted supremacy. Façade is still on the comeback trail from the past attacks of Shiima Xion, but scored a huge coup with a victory at Wrestlelution 3. Justice has been out of the public eye for sometime, but is more determined than ever to make this HIS year. Which man will be next in line for the coveted PWO TV Title?

Krimson vs. Corey Winters
Krimson is, quite simply, the embodiment of evil, and the representation of the hate and anger that festers inside us all. Krimson has made it his crusade since day one to spread the same pain and misery to others that he feels the wrestling industry has given him, and these goals hit a sickening new low with his scheduled Wrestlelution 3 match with Super Hentai was forced to be postponed indefinitely due to a last-minute family emergency involving Hentai, an emergency that Krimson seemed to be very aware of and a little too proud of. What exactly happened may never be known, but another mystery surfaced that same day when Krimson interrupted another match-up, attacking and abducting Eric Ryan, of whom he has NO history with. We’re not sure what happened after Krimson carried Eric away, only that those close to Eric have said he has been more distant and reserved since the incident. Eric’s tag team partner of the past two years, Corey Winters, has challenged Krimson in the hopes of finding answers. Will Corey Winters succeed against arguably his toughest test to date. Will we get answers on what exactly happened to Eric Ryan?

Aeroform vs. Sex Appeal
Aeroform, Louis Lyndon & Flip Kendrick scored a major victory at PWO Wrestlelution 3 by surviving the hit placed on them and defeating The Gambino Family, and now with that in the distant past, these two energetic young athletes set their sights back to PWO’s tag team division. Sex Appeal are in turmoil. Bobby Shields has been hospitalized due to “severe stress and fatigue” leaving Bobby Beverly & Nicki Valentino to represent the team. But after their losing the PWO Tag Titles to the “inferior” Gregory Iron & Hobo Joe (with a little help from one-legged sensation Zach Gowen), what state of mind is Sex Appeal in? Valentino says he has the answer – Frisky – a new female companion who Valentino found God-knows-where doing God-knows-what. We know NOTHING about her, other than she will be with Sex Appeal this Sunday. Will it pay off? Which team starts off the season with major momentum?

Plus: Comments from Benjamin Boone & Ben Fruith – The Sons of Michigan! The Sons went 0-2 at Wrestlelution 3, and their follies were escalated further when little Ben Fruith finally stood up to Boone and slapped him across the face. What repercussions will there be and how will the Sons attempt to regroup before their leader N8 Mattson returns?
