GARGANO’s OPEN CONTRACT ANSWERED – BY THREE MEN!
PWO TITLE: JOHNNY GARGANO VS. MATT CROSS VS. BANE VS. MARION FONTAINE
A little over a week ago, we told you that Johnny Gargano, despite growing rumors of his physical and mental health deteriorating, had issued an open contract to defend his PWO Title a week from Sunday in Niles, Ohio at our next live television taping. Needless to say, PWO management was inundated with requests from top to bottom of PWO’s roster, placing their name in the proverbial hat for consideration. As a result, of the mounting number of top contenders, management has made a controversial decision, at the request of Johnny Gargano himself, no less.
Gargano’s challengers include “Megastar” Marion Fontaine, who has spear-headed the recent claims of Gargano’s injuries and weaknesses, and came within a hair of defeating Gargano for the title a month ago. Fontaine has stated that that match “Gives irrefutable proof that Johnny Gargano is a shell of his former self and living on borrowed time, and if not for the biased referees and management protecting their ‘face of the company’, I’d have already realized my potential and won the title! December 12 in Niles I WILL become the new PWO Champion, and then I’ll represent the PWO organization the way I think it deserves to be! And to any of those “critics” out there that think I’m not good enough, maybe I’ll have a few words for you too.”
Secondly is “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross, who is surfacing for the first time since PWO Wrestlelution 3, and he seems to have his own outlook on the matter – “Everyone is talking about how Johnny Gargano is hurt and injured, but everyone is forgetting who it is that did that to him. For six months, I owned Johnny Gargano mind, body, and soul, and exposed him as a coward and a fraud of a champion. I was one second away – ONE SECOND away – from regaining MY PWO Title at Wrestlelution. This time, I’ll make every second count.”
Last but certainly not least, “PWO’s Most Dominant Man” Jason Bane rounds out the list of four after letting it be known he had his own PWO Title aspirations after defeating Raven at PWO Wrestlelution 3 and putting an end to the bounty that had distracted him for an entire year. Bane raised the great point that he, not Fontaine or Cross, won his match at Wrestlelution 3, and the fact that the Gargano vs. Bane PWO Title match that took place live in Niles earlier this year ended in a no-contest, with no clear winner, meaning Gargano has NEVER beaten Jason Bane. When contacted, Bane simply re-iterated a very powerful point – “On December 12 in Niles, I will become PWO’s Most Dominant Champion!”
Gargano, M-Dogg, Fontaine, and Bane – four of the most successful and diverse talents in PWO history in one ring at one time. This WILL be “elimination rules”, meaning we will see three falls before it’s all said and done. Only one man will be left standing at the end of this contest, and he will be PWO Champion. Who will be the man? Will Gargano’s schedule finally catch up with him? If so, who will assume his position atop the PWO throne? It’s the first time the PWO Title has ever been decided in a four-way match and you will see it live Sunday, December 12!
N8 MATTSON RETURNS – SONS OF MICHIGAN TO CHALLENGE PWO TAG CHAMPS!
“Amazing” N8 Mattson has not been seen in PWO in a number of months due to a disciplinary action, but The Sons of Michigan are not quiet about the fact that the former PWO TV Champion is on his way back to the organization. N8 makes his return December 12, and has already begun shaking things up! Embarrassed and appalled over the lack of success in the Sons of Michigan faction of late, Mattson has signed a match-up pitting himself and “Big Bear” Benjamin Boone against current PWO Tag Team Champions Gregory Iron & Hobo Joe – The Homeless Handicapped Connection – however, due to the recent struggles of the Sons, PWO has decreed it will be a non-title affair. In addition, N8 has promised to deliver what he refers to as the “State of the State of Michigan Address”, where he plans to publicly comment on the turmoil and failures within the Sons of Michigan in his absence. Benjamin Boone has been acting like an over-abrasive bully in recent time, while Ben Fruith retains his role as the gullible, loveable loser – in over his head and powerless to change it, though showing signs of resistance by slapping Boone not once but twice! How will N8 shake things up and how will the Sons fare against the PWO Tag Champs?
PWO TV TITLE: OMEGA AARON DRAVEN vs. MICHAEL “THE BOMBER” FAÇADE
Last August, Omega did what many thought was impossible – he ended Benjamin Boone’s two-year streak of not being pinned, defeating the Big Bear 1-2-3 center-ring. Mounting injuries from his wars with the Sons of Michigan, coupled with a recent match-up against Paul London in the state of West Virginia has left Omega less active than he’d like to be, but he looks to redeem himself December 12 as he meets new #1 contender Michael Façade, who cemented his spot with a win over Matthew Justice recently. Both men are no strangers to high-risk, unpredictable aerial offense, and have battled before with the PWO TV Title at stake. Which of these men can have luck on their side as they risk life and limb for the glory of the gold? The show-stealing match could be Omega and The Bomber.
NILES’ OWN BOBBY BEVERLY SETS HIS SIGHTS ON PWO GOLD
Sex Appeal’s Bobby Beverly has seen great success in his hometown, taking PWO Champion Johnny Gargano to his limit at the start of the year, and emerging victorious in a PWO Tag Team Title defense, and now with his third endeavor to the area, he is setting his sights on the only PWO championship he has yet to pursue. Word has it, Beverly has been heavily petitioning for a PWO TV Title opportunity, and both champion “Omega” Aaron Draven and #1 challenger Michael “The Bomber” Façade have expressed great interest in battling the “Master of the Thrust”. Sex Appeal has been in total disarray since Wrestlelution 3, and it seems they feel the most important thing missing is championship gold. Will Beverly’s search for glory result in a hometown victory or another setback?
FORMER TAG PARTNERS COLLIDE: KIRST vs. COREY WINTERS
At Wrestlelution 3, perhaps the most unexplainable event occurred with “The Embodiment of Evil” Krimson randomly inserted himself into another match-up, abducting Eric Ryan. Eric’s partner, Corey Winters had not heard from Eric for weeks following the incident, and those that did see Eric described him as “distant and trance-like”. Corey challenged Krimson last month in an attempt to find out what exactly had happened to Eric. Corey would find out, just not in the way he had expected. During the match, an ominous figure clad in a dark hood made its way into the ring. The tattoos made it apparent it was Eric Ryan, but once the hood was removed, it was clear the Eric Ryan we knew was long gone. Now with mysterious symbolism painted onto his face, and spewing a mysterious red liquid from his mouth, Eric’s distraction led to a Krimson victory. Krimson led Eric away like a prized pet afterward, and in the weeks following we would find out that that Eric had now become “Kirst”, and seemed to be under complete and total control of Krimson. Kirst stated that Krimson “loves him”, and that he finally found a place he belonged. Corey Winters is very concerned over the health and well-being of his tag partner of two years, and has challenged Kirst to a one-on-one match in Niles on December 12. Can Corey beat some sense into Eric Ryan, or has the mental and psychological power of Krimson transcended into Kirst as well?
MATTHEW JUSTICE vs. Sex Appeal’s “Late Nite” NICKIE VALENTINO
Matthew Justice was said to be very despondent and frustrated following his recent loss to Brian Bender. He was reportedly overheard as saying that its time to ‘step up my game’ and ‘show PWO what Matt Justice is really all about’. Those that have followed us for some time, know Matt is generally very laid-back and a man of few words, so this caught many insiders off guard. What frame of mind will Matt be in when he steps into battle with Nicki Valentino, another member of the struggling Sex Appeal faction hoping to use Matt as an example and a springboard to reclaiming past successes. Which of these amazing young athletes will succeed in their goals on December 12?
“True Talent” BOBBY “The Body” SHIELDS vs. BRIAN BENDER
Bender states he is a new man, and with the absolving of his prior professional relationships comes the birth of a new competitor. Questions began to be raised regarding that situation when Bender unsuspectingly scored a victory with the help of pulling his opponent’s tights just a few weeks ago. Bender seemed apologetic afterward, was it force of habit or just a well-orchestrated front? We’ll have our eyes closely locked in on Bender a week from Sunday as he steps into battle with one-third of Sex Appeal, former co-holder of the PWO Tag Title Bobby Shields. Will Sex Appeal get back on track, and how will Brian Bender behave?
The Debut of Jason Gory
He is one of the most dynamic, breathtaking and high-risk athletes in this part of the country. His lightning-fast offense and scintillating aerial artistry have been the subject of fans and insiders alike as being atop its field. Now, the young, energetic Jason Gory is welcomed into PWO with open arms as he sees action for the very first time as a member of the PWO roster. Who will Gory oppose and how will he fair? And what path will his PWO career lead him on?
“The Embodiment of Evil” KRIMSON Will Be In Action!
What does this diabolical demonic individual have in store for PWO next? With Kirst in tow, Krimson for the first time is not traveling alone. Will we see twice the carnage in Niles?
Plus more action and surprises including bonus action you will NOT see on PWO TV! The only way to see this event in its entirety is to be there LIVE on December 12th, 5pm belltime, at the Eastwood Expo Center in Niles!
