We’ll also look back at Matt’s PWO Title victory over Josh Prohibition at the first-ever PWO Wrestlelution. Plus, Matt’s wars with Johnny Gargano, being screwed out of the PWO Title by Josh Prohibition, and the extreme lengths he has gone to in order to attempt to regain it.
This is all in preparation for one of the biggest PWO live events to date, “PWO Pressure Rising: Beware of the Krimson Mask” on Sunday afternoon, February 20 at 3:00 pm from The Arena Sports & Entertainment Complex in Streetsboro, OH.
