PWO TV #110 – PWO’s Pressure Rises: TV Title On The Line
PWO Television Title: “Omega” Aaron Draven vs. Sex Appeal’s Bobby Beverly
Omega is PWO’s only two-time titleholder and the first man to pin Benjamin Boone in over two years. His death-defying style and more-guts-than-brains ring style has usually proven effective, though has slowed the champion in recent months. Beverly is determined to bring gold back to Sex Appeal in order to resume their winning ways and feels Draven is unworthy as champion. Who will leave with the title in tact?
Eye For An Eye: Shiima Xion vs. Michael “The Bomber” Façade
“The Suburban Terrorist” Façade was the first man in PWO to pin Shiima, and paid for it with a “Hostile Makeover” as Shiima blinded Façade by spraying him in the eyes with Façade’s own trademark spraypaint. Façade was sidelined, but returned to do the same to Shiima, blinding “The Filipino Flex Factory” and putting him on the shelf as well. Now, both athletes are 100% and ready to finally settle their issue. Will Shiima have his eyes on victory or will Michael Façade make him see the light?
Aeroform’s Flip Kendrick vs. Sex Appeal’s “Late Nite” Nicki Valentino
Valentino feels the ring-style of Kendrick, partner Louis Lyndon and close ally Michael Façade (collectively known as the “Ninja Elite Squad”) is an embarrassment and not what professional wrestling is all about. Instead, Valentino preaches traditional wrestling, 1980s style, and even comes to the ring dressed for the part, and carrying a list of “his moves” such as headlocks and armbars. Flip may be the most agile and awe-inspiring athlete on the PWO roster, and certainly does not take kindly to Valentino’s assertions. Who will win out in this clash of styles and philosophies?
Comments from PWO Champion Johnny Gargano and top challengers “Megastar” Marion Fontaine and “Most Dominant Man” Jason Bane en route to a huge PWO Title match on next week’s broadcast. We’ll also report on a rumor concerning fellow top title contender “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross, and hear comments from “The Natural” Brian Bender and “The Heavy Metal Highflyer” Jason Gory in preparation of his altercation with Raven in two weeks time! All this and more this week on PWO TV!
FROM THE ARCHIVES
PWO TV #1: The Pilot
The first EVER episode of PWO TV featured the world’s introduction to the PWO brand and style, and the beginning of a long journey with many peaks and valleys along the way.
The main event saw “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross vs. “Fabulous” John McChesney – at the time, the two most pre-eminent high-flyers in Ohio. It was poised to be an encounter to remember and a perfect way to cap off the first night of PWO TV, but would everyone see things that way?
We also saw the first one-on-one meeting between Johnny Gargano and Gregory Iron. Gargano’s career was a rocketship taking off, stemming from recent matches in other organizations with major internationally-renowned superstars. Gregory Iron, however, was competing in his first match since suffering a near-fatal concussion during an in-ring accident suffered the previous August. It was the sure-fire star vs. the man just trying to prove to everyone he could still compete. What ended up happening, sparked a series of events PWO fans will never forget.
Also, the first-ever PWO match saw The Cut Throat Crew, “Bloody” Morty Rackem and “Ruthless” Rufio Rapier vs. V-Squared – Virus & Virus Grande. Who went down in history as scoring the first ever victory in a PWO ring?
Plus… The first PWO appearances of Josh Prohibition, Hobo Joe, Aaron Maguire and his latest client and more!
