Pro Wrestling Ohio is hitting the road! PWO debuts in suburban Youngstown with a special Sunday, January 24 live event at the Eastwood Expo Center in Niles, 5555 Youngstown Warren Rd Niles, OH 44446. This event will have a very special and noteworthy 5:00 pm belltime, and will feature a number of special attractions! This event is presented to you by Pro Wrestling Ohio, in association with our friends at the Championship Wrestling Experience. PWO has announced its first matches for what will go down as the most diverse, action-packed, and loaded card in PWO history! This WILL be a TV taping for PWO TV on Sports Time Ohio, so bring your signs, be enthusiastic, and be ready to be seen on nationwide television!

The line of challengers to Johnny Gargano’s PWO Title is growing longer and longer as time goes on. We saw Beverly, perhaps the most arrogant and outspoken member of the controversial group Sex Appeal, publicly confront Gargano recently on television, going as far as to barge in and ruin a scheduled Gargano interview (as seen here – Beverly made his intentions known to replace Johnny as the next hot, young star to rise to the top of Pro Wrestling Ohio. Gargano, ever one to think on his feet and do his best to not only entertain himself, but now his fans as well, was quick to turn the tables on Beverly and his charge Nicki Valentino, by playing upon their vain personalities and physical insecurities. However, despite Beverly’s cosmetic sensitivity, one thing made clear is he has truly come into his own as a dangerous force in PWO, as both a singles and tag team wrestler, as evidenced by his recent domination of both Gregory Iron and Hobo Joe in recent matches. Despite an enraged Iron still pursuing Beverly after the beating he received from Sex Appeal a number of weeks ago, Beverly has put his focus on Gargano and the PWO Championship. Gargano has been a courageous champion, but will he be able to stop the roll Beverly has been on? Can Johnny Gargano successfully defend his title, or can Bobby Beverly cement himself as one of PWO’s elite with a title victory?

On the growing list of men who have set their sights on the PWO Championship, the two names that stand out the most are Matt Cross and Jimmy DeMarco. Cross has still not received a title match since being screwed out of the PWO Title by Josh Prohibition last spring. Cross and Gargano have mutually agreed to a championship match with one another, and with Gargano’s schedule quickly filling up with contenders, Cross can guarantee himself as next in line with a victory here. DeMarco made his shocking and impactful PWO return recently, sneaking into the arena under a mask, interrupting a PWO Championship match and assaulting our champion (footage of which can be seen here – with DeMarco’s explanation here – DeMarco also attacked Matt Cross earlier in the night, showing that his intentions are clearly to target PWO’s most popular and most successful athletes, and to capture the PWO Championship. The winner of this match will face Gargano when PWO returns to Cleveland on February 20. Can the sinister and diabolical DeMarco defeat the man many still claim as PWO’s rightful champion, and inch himself closer to PWO’s top prize? Or can M-Dogg 20 finally seal the deal and receive the title shot many have felt he’s deserved for months?

The Kent State University All-American has been said to be in a very unstable and ornery state of mind since being unsuccessful in his latest PWO title opportunity. While Tolar unfairly placed blame the first time around on his hapless lackey Ben Fruith, this time around Tolar’s downfall is more closely related to the return of the unpredictable Jimmy DeMarco. However, despite the facts and results of these recent encounters, Tolar has been overheard calling himself ?PWO’s True Heavyweight Champion? and ?The Greatest Champion Going Today?. While that may not be official, Tolar can keep himself in the growing list of names contending for a PWO Title shot with a victory over Matthew Justice. Justice has shown amazing perseverance and tenacity in recent months, competing in adrenaline-fueled matches with the likes of M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross and Michael ?The Bomber? Fa?ade, but Tolar is an entirely different style to prepare for. Can the high-flying Justice adjust to the collegiate champion or can Mike Tolar live up to his own self-perception and get back on the winning track?

A number of weeks ago, Aaron Draven’s unwavering guts and perseverance were forcibly put on the sidelines by PWO doctors, forcing the reshuffling of a number of PWO title defenses scheduled for the orange-tinted titleholder. In protest, ?Amazing? N8 Mattson refused to appear at PWO events or television broadcasts, or even leave his home-state of Michigan for any reason, until granted the title opportunity he feels he rightfully deserves. This past weekend on television, Draven delivered a unique and colorful challenge to Mattson, showing he will not back down from the overbearing elitist. Will Omega overcome another difficult test or can N8 Mattson succeed in providing the ultimate bragging right for himself, and disappointment for everyone else – to prove that the best wrestler in Ohio is indeed from Michigan.

A few weeks ago on television, ?Big Bear? Benjamin Boone became among the first to attempt to collect the $10,000 bounty placed on Bane’s head by Aaron Maguire, but was certainly far from the only man to attempt it. Boone went in to the match without the guidance of mentor N8 Mattson, who was still at home in protest of PWO management. However, with Mattson back in the fold, word has it that it was Mattson who instructed Boone to formally challenger PWO’s Most Dominant Man once again. What are the intentions and plans of the Michigan elite? Will they rid PWO of Jason Bane and become ten grand richer? Will anyone else attempt to collect as well? Can Jason Bane, now in the best shape of his life and more motivated than ever, survive or is he simply living on borrowed time?

Sex Appeal have used legal loopholes to find success as of late, not only allowing them to win the PWO Tag Titles, but also to institute a stipulation that ANY two members of Sex Appeal can defend the titles at any given time. Due to Bobby Beverly focusing on the PWO Heavyweight Title, it will be ?True Talent? Bobby Shields & ?Late Nite? Nicki Valentino in action here. Can Sex Appeal have the same success in the ring that they have had in manipulating management? Meanwhile, Marion Fontaine & Noj the Wild Samoan have, according to all reports, not been on speaking terms for months. We now know Noj had to return home to his native Samoa last fall to help his family & friends rebuild and recover after a devastating earthquake & tsunami struck the island, and it seemed Marion Fontaine felt slighted over the fact his friend didn?t forego his loved ones to stay in the U.S. to help Fontaine during his matches. Could a tag title win mend their broken fences or will this be the last stand of the loveable eccentric Fontaine’s Freaks?

Long-time friends Gregory Iron & Hobo Joe have recently found themselves on the same side and in the same situation – targets of the Sex Appeal group because they are looked at as beneath the likes of the ?beautiful people? of the world, not to mention the fact that Beverly has had it out for Iron ever since Beverly lost two of his teeth last summer, an incident he unfairly blames Iron for. PWO’s ?Handicapped Hero? has not backed down however as, after a physical attack by the entire group, Greg returned weeks later ready to fight. Hobo has been a target of the group since day one, and still has resentment toward one-time friend & tag partner Beverly. Iron & Hobo have a clear goal – form a successful tag team and take the two things Sex Appeal value most – their looks and their titles! Can they complete step one with a win over the hungry young tandem of Ryan & Winters?

Recently on PWO TV, we were unsuspectingly subjected to a very uncomfortable and unsettling piece of video footage, of a man formerly known as Conrad Kennedy III, but has seemingly been pushed over the edge after years of personal and professional sacrifice. (Footage of this can be seen here – and It seems now the man now known as Krimson is intent on taking his inner pain and torment and turning it into pain and torment inflicted on the stars of PWO. PWO management has invited Krimson to appear live on January 24 and compete in his first official PWO match. How will this very bizarre entity perform inside the ring? What sort of message will he send? And what are his intentions in PWO?
