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!

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. 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 – 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?

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 – 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?
