PWS: Mick Foley, Psycho Sid, Callihan-Maff May 27 in Elmhurst, NY on iPPV
PWS ‘Refuse To Lose II’ Facebook Event Site.
Watch the PWS NEWS CENTER for Pro Wrestling Syndicate’s ‘Refuse to Lose II’ on Friday, May 27 at The Queens Elks Lodge, 8220 Queens Blvd in Elmhurst, New York. Autograph signing starts at 7 pm, bell time 8 pm. Also on iPPV at Go Fight Live (GFL.tv)
Live action kicks off at 8pm with Three Time WWE Heavyweight Champion Mick Foley serving as PWS Guest Commissioner.
In a Texas Death Match, “The New Horror” Sami Callihan battles “The Boricua Beast” Dan Maff to earn a title shot against PWS Champion Devon Moore.
This is the second time Maff and Callihan have squared off. The first time was a 20 minute hard hitting classic during Round Two of The 2011 Majestic Twelve Tournament. With both men focused on a title shot, it is expected that this will be a MOTY candidate as these two will stop at nothing to get to the win.
Two Time WWE & Two Time WCW Heavyweight Champion Psycho Sid makes his PWS debut against the hard hitting “Last Of A Dying Breed” Eddie Kingston. Kingston has been part of PWS since its first event in 2007 and has taken on top stars such as Samoa Joe, Necro Butcher, and “The Ugandan Giant” Kamala amongst others in a PWS ring. Kingston will be looking to prove that he can take out the vicious Sid.
The PWS New York State Title will be on the line as newly crowned champion “The Premiere Athlete” Tony Nese defends against “Mr Standing 450” Rich Swann, luchador El Gran Demono, “The Ariel Assault Assassin” Javi Air, high flying Brian XL, and former TNA X Division ChampionThe Amazing Red in a Suicidal Six Way Match. This match features six of the best high flying and technically sound wrestlers on The East Coast today and will surely be a classic.
Guest Commissioner Mick Foley might have his hands full as this will be the first PWS event where all five members of the devious Reality Check will be present. Reality Check has been stirring up problems in PWS for two years and no previous guest commissioners including The Pope, Jimmy Hart, Bill Apter, and Road Dogg have been able to stop them. Reality Check is fresh off a big win at PWS Spring Break Showdown where RC members Devon Moore, Kevin Matthews, and Danny Demanto defeated the reunited “D-Generates Of Wrestling” X Pac, Road Dogg, and Billy Gunn.
Reality Check’s Kevin Matthews, with Alexa Thatcher in his corner, will take on the returning Playa From The Himalayas Sonjay Dutt. Former PWS Champion Matthews wants to make an example of Dutt as he attempts to climb back up the ranks to reclaim his top spot. But the technically sound Dutt, unphased by the size disadvantage, is looking to show fans in Queens NY that he is one of the best pound for pound wrestlers in the world today.
Top Florida independent star “The Encore” Aaron Epic makes his PWS debut against Reality Check’s Danny Demanto with Velvet Sky in his corner. These men are known for putting their bodies on the line and stopping at nothing to get a win. Demanto has been part of PWS since day one and has faced top stars including Kenny Omega, Low Ki, and the late “Dr Death” Steve Williams amongst others. Epic has been tearing up the FL indy scene and will attempt to make a huge splash in his NY debut for PWS.
The popular 420 pound “Samoan Mastadon” Fala will face “The Prince Of Old School” Justin Corino whom will have his new 501 pound backflipping bodyguard Lucifer Darksyde in his corner. Fala is hot off wins over Robbie E and Kenny Dykstra and looks to keep his streak going against Corino whom has yet to score a victory since his arrival at PWS in 2008. Will Darksyde’s presence motivate Corino on to victory? What about Fala? What tricks will he have?
PWS Tag Team Titles will be on the line as undefeated champions The Urban Legends defend in a Tag Team Gauntlet Match. Winning the titles in a tournament that included The SAT, Air-O-Dynamic, The Manitoba Maulers, Grim Reefer & Azrieal, and former multi time WWE Champions Demolition, and have successfully defended against The Hoodz, The Best Around, The BQE, and The Outlaws From Hell amongst others.
However, Wes Draven & Devious will now have to defend against the rhythmic duo of Joe Ayyo & Timmy Aiight and the 902 pound Nigerian Nightmares, Maifu & Saifu. With Draven recently suffering an injury, will he be able to compete? If not, what will this mean for The Urban Legends’ Title defense? There has been tension between Timmy Aiight & Joe Ayyo, most recently occurring when Aaight no showed the last PWS event, leaving Ayyo to team with a drunken Kronik The Clown in an unsuccessful match against The Urban Legends which resulted in Ayyo snapping and beating Kronik with a metal pipe to the point where he had to be carried from the ring in a stretcher and legit taken to the hospital. Also looming are the very large Nigerian Nightmares, whom were set to make their PWS debut at PWS Spring Break Showdown against two other large men whom vacated the locker room before the match could take place. The Nightmares are hungry, and adding PWS gold to their diet might be on their minds. With a lot of question marks raised, anything can happen.
Plus, WSU Women’s wrestling returns to Pro Wrestling Syndicate with two special women’s matches! Nikki Styx goes head to head with Brittney Savage, and WSU Tag Team champions The Belle Saints (Marti Belle & Tina San Antonio) defend against The Boston Shore’s Amber & Alexxis Nevaeh.
