Last week we gave you your double main event, now three new matches added this stellar card –
PWO Television Champion ?Omega? Aaron Draven defends against ?True Talent? Bobby Shields of Sex Appeal
The risk-taking, thrill-seeking Omega Aaron Draven survived three very intense and diverse athletes, and more importantly severely injured ribs, to emerge from PWO Wrestlelution 2 is the first ever PWO Television champion. However, now that the gold is firmly in Draven’s possession he has no time to rest. His first challenger is truly one of the best, and in his mind truly one of the best looking. Whether he’s ?True Talent? ?Beautififul? ?The Body? or any of the other plethora of names he’s bestowed upon himself, Bobby Shields is a major reason why the Sex Appeal faction is among the most talked about topics in PWO today. Shields, with the lovely Dawn Decadence by his side, was instrumental in himself, Bobby Beverly, and newcomer Nickie Valentino’s victory at Wrestlution 2, with Shields scoring the winning fall. As a result, Bobby ?The Body? was granted this championship opportunity, and wants to use the PWO TV Title as a means to spread his message of beautiful is better, and also to enhance his own image and ego. Can Shields stop the gutsy underdog or does Omega have another miracle left in him?
Women’s Action: Hailey Hatred vs. Portia Perez in a Wrestlelution 2 rematch!
This past August, internationally-traveled athlete Portia Perez was brought into PWO by Eric Ryan in order to eliminate the lovely yet deadly Hailey Hatred. Portia came up short in her quest, but a rivalry between the two was born, and Portia was quick to ask PWO management for a return match with Hailey. Officials obliged, and we will once again be treated to two of the toughest and most athletic female athletes in professional wrestling today. Who will emerge victorious in this, their second meeting?
?Handicapped Hero? Gregory Iron vs. Bobby Beverly of Sex Appeal
At PWO Wrestlelution 2, Gregory Iron joined the fight against Sex Appeal, taking years of being ridiculed and looked down upon throughout his childhood and channeling that anger to wage war with the very same individuals perpetrating the same heinous act in PWO. In the course of the battle, Beverly charged at Iron, however Greg stepped aside at the last minute, leaving Beverly charging into the steel ring post, knocking out two of his teeth and busting his lip wide open. After a stay in the hospital, Beverly was reportedly irate that his ‘sexy face? was ?permanently deformed? by Gregory Iron. Beverly, no doubt PWO’s most superficial superstar, claimed his career and life will never be the same and demanded a match with Gregory Iron to inflict revenge. Iron has never backed down from a fight, and accepted the challenge, as this clash of differing lifestyles is now official. With a man as shallow as Beverly, with how seriously he takes his looks, how far will he go to inflict revenge on Gregory Iron? Will he succeed or will Gregory Iron put another imperfection in the profile of Sex Appeal?
All this plus already announced?
PWO Championship – Johnny Gargano defends against ?Superstar? Mike Tolar
Johnny Gargano’s coming of age was made complete at Wrestlelution 2 as Gargano evolved before our eyes from a young punk kid with a distant dream into ?The Whole Shebang?, exorcising his demons and defeating Josh Prohibition in one of the most emotional and unforgettable battles anywhere in pro wrestling. Mike Tolar’s Wrestlelution experience was stellar in its own right, as the Kent State All-American collegiate champion score his biggest professional win to date, besting former PWO Champion ?M-Dogg 20? Matt Cross, thanks to some outside aid from his brainwashed lackeys Ben Fruith & EJ. After a very unpleasant encounter with Cleveland Browns legend Bob Golic moments earlier, Tolar rebounded into what could be a career-defining victory, as Tolar now finds himself the official #1 Contender to the PWO Championship. It’s Johnny Gargano’s first title defense, and his chance to prove he can make it on his own. Gargano has the ability, has the drive, has the athleticism, and it seems he finally has the mental prowess as well. But will it last? Mike Tolar has worked for years to receive this opportunity and will no doubt do anything in his power to feed his ego and capture the PWO Title on his very first opportunity. Who will exit the first event of our 3rd season with the PWO Title in tact?
PWO Tag Team Titles – The Clash vs. Brutus ?The Barber? Beefcake & Greg ?The Hammer? Valentine
At Wrestlelution 2, Ernie Ballz & Brian Bender used the method of ?divide & conquer? to procure the PWO Tag Team Championship from then-champions Greg Valentine & Jim Neidhart. The Clash reportedly cornered Valentine somewhere in suburban Cleveland the night before Wrestlelution, severely injuring The Hammer’s knee. With Neidhart left to defend the straps at a 2-on-1 disadvantage, The Clash pounced and, after stealing Valentine’s crutch and using it as a weapon, pinned The Anvil to officially realize their long-proclaimed destiny of becoming tag team champions. Despite still recovering from the severe leg injury sustained at the hands of The Clash, Greg Valentine has opted to use the return-match clause in his contract, though has requested a special stipulation. For this re-match, Valentine requested permission to turn to a man he has a long history of teaming with, and even a history of winning tag team championships with. PWO officials agreed, and as a result, on October 11 The Dream Team will re-unite in Pro Wrestling Ohio! Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake, as The Dream Team and managed by ?Luscious? John Valiant, captured the WWF World Tag Team Titles in 1985, and reigned atop a very competitive tag team scene for eight months, before losing the titles in a historic bout at WrestleMania 2. It has been 22 years since Valentine & Beefcake have teamed on television, but they will re-unite in PWO on October 11? Will this be a one-night only reunion or the beginning of Valentine’s second reign as PWO Tag Team Champion? And will The Hammer be anywhere near 100% by October 11? And what will The Clash have in store for these two timeless legends?
PLUS: ?Innovator of Aerial Insanity? M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross, ?PWO’s Most Dominant Man? Jason Bane, ?Dumpster Dweller? Hobo Joe, ?Amazing? N8 Mattson & ?Big Bear? Benjamin Boone, ?Megastar? Marion Fontaine & Noj the Wild Samoan, Matthew Justice, and more!
Check back early next week for the final announcement of this great card and we?ll see you LIVE at the I.X. Center, Sunday afternoon, October 11!
MEDICAL UPDATE: VIRUS OUT INDEFINITELY AFTER MICHIGAN ATTACK
After PWO Wrestlelution 2, as seen on the official PWO Wrestlelution 2 DVD on-sale now in our Online Store, our cameras caught up with ?Amazing? N8 Mattson & ?Big Bear? Benjamin Boone just hours following Boone’s failure to capture the PWO TV Championship, and the victory by ?Omega? Aaron Draven. Rather than accept defeat and move on, the Michigan elitists decided to place the blame somewhere — not on themselves of course — but on another member of the match, PWO’s ?Hazardous High-Flyer? Virus. The two viciously assaulted Virus and left him laying, presumably to take out a top contender in their quest for championship gold.
Virus has undergone several extensive medical examinations over the past several weeks, and unfortunately has been diagnosed with a broken clavicle, along with assorted other bumps and bruises from the attack. As a result of this injury, Virus will unfortunately be unable to appear at our October 11 live event, and will be out of action indefinitely.
PWO sends its thoughts and well-wishes to Virus during the time he?ll be out of action, and wish him a speedy and successful return to Pro Wrestling Ohio.
As for Mattson & Boone? They promise to get back on track and show the true dominance they have over everyone in Ohio, and they promise to start Sunday afternoon, October 11 at the I.X. Center for PWO’s next live event.
Footage of the assault perpetrated by Boone & Mattson on Virus, a PWO DVD Exclusive, is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BGnOwqAt7U
