This past weekend on PWO TV, several major revelations were made public as the card for Pro Wrestling Ohio’s signature event – ?PWO Wrestlelution 2: A Coming of Age? Sunday afternoon, August 9 at the Nautica Pavilion in Cleveland, Ohio – continues to take shape.

The following matches have officially been added to this loaded and surefire historic card Sunday, August 9.

Ohio vs. Michigan – Al Snow w/Head vs. ?Amazing? N8 Mattson
The 12-year veteran Mattson made his official return to PWO TV this past weekend, and picked up right where he left off – proclaiming the dominance and superiority of all things Michigan, while degrading and mocking all that comes from the great state of Ohio. With ?Big Bear? Benjamin Boone by his side, whom Mattson had convinced to move from Ohio to Detroit, Mattson claimed from now on he would wrestle on HIS terms and wouldn?t let anyone from Ohio tell him what to do. However, Mattson was joined by PWO broadcaster Joe Dombrowski who had some most unexpected and unsettling news for the Michigan elitist. It seemed when Mattson got hurt earlier in the year, he forgot to take his open contracts to wrestle ANYONE from the state of Ohio off the table. Not only were there a lot of fans watching state-wide on Sports Time Ohio that were offended by Mattson, but other wrestlers as well. One such wrestler chose to step up to the plate, and sign one of N8’s contracts — Lima, Ohio native Al Snow! The twenty-plus year veteran has found success everywhere he’s gone, from WWE to ECW to successful training stints in Ohio Valley Wrestling and the hit television show ?Tough Enough?. On August 9, the storied Ohio vs. Michigan sports rivalry returns to the wrestling ring as Al Snow, with his trusty sidekick Head, attempts to silence the Michigan loudmouth once and for all. Which state will reign supreme when these two crafty veterans meet at Wrestlelution 2?

Dumpster Match – Jason Bane & Hobo Joe vs. Mickey & Marshall Gambino w/Agent Aaron Maguire
When PWO’s Most Dominant Man Jason Bane ran Cronus out of PWO, Aaron Maguire’s professional and personal life were in ruins. Months of frivolous spending and illegal gambling debts caught up with Maguire and drove him to the poorhouse, or more specifically the dumpster, where Aaron befriended and learned from PWO’s cult hero Hobo Joe. However, just as Aaron had adjusted to life on the streets, his past caught up with him. Marshall ?The Bull? Gambino, soon to be joined by ?Nice Guy? Mickey, began stalking PWO live events, hunting Maguire, and looking to collect the remaining gambling debts Maguire owed him. Maguire’s attempts at getting fast cash came up empty, but when Hobo Joe won $25,000 in the Ohio State Lottery, Maguire’s greed and selfishness resurfaced, as he conned his would-be best friend Hobo out of the only riches Hobo had ever had. Maguire used the cash to not only pay off The Gambino Family, but also sign them on as clients, re-invigorating Maguire’s stalled career. Aaron immediately sent the Family to target Jason Bane, screwing Bane out of winning the PWO Championship, a feat Bane had worked for nearly a year to achieve. The Family also targeted Hobo Joe, as Maguire now felt he was once-again too good to be associated with ?trash?. Maguire instructed The Family to throw Hobo into a dumpster and light it on fire, though thankfully Jason Bane was there to settle his own Family score, and save Hobo in the process. Bane & Hobo refuse to run despite now being officially on the ?hit list?, and have joined together to form possibly PWO’s most unlikely team. They issued the challenge to the Family for a ?Dumpster Match? – no disqualifications, anything goes, the only way to win is to place both of your opponents into a dumpster and close the lid. For Bane & Hobo it’s a chance to fight for retribution in the elements that have surrounded much of this sordid story. For The Gambinos, it is a chance to carry out their ?hit? and send Bane & Hobo ‘sleeping with the fishes?. Who will survive this volatile streetfight-like atmosphere when all hell breaks loose?

Clash Confirmed As Top Tag Team Title Contenders – Valentine & Neidhart In Their Future?
After over a week of petitioning, Ernie Ballz & Brian Bender, The Clash, have officially been named #1 Contenders to the PWO Tag Team Titles, and will receive their title opportunity at Wrestlelution 2 on August 9, currently set to be against timeless legends Jim ?The Anvil? Neidhart & Greg ?The Hammer? Valentine! Neidhart and Valentine have a tag team title opportunity this weekend on PWO TV against Pirate Justice, and if the legends are victorious the title match will be made official. Regardless, Valentine & Neidhart are set to appear and continue this amazing coming of age of their own at Wrestlelution 2.

Women’s Action: Hailey Hatred vs. Portia Perez
Hailey Hatred is one of the toughest and most dangerous wrestlers today – of ANY gender – but has lately been the victim of both verbal and physical assaults from the brash upstart tag team of Eric Ryan & Corey Winters. Ryan & Winters attacked Hailey from behind two weeks ago, and this past week when Hailey challenged them to a match at Wrestlelution 2 – they declined! Instead, Ryan claimed he was hand-selecting a formidable opponent to take care of Hailey for him on August 9 – Portia Perez. Portia is a world-traveled athlete, and one of the most well-respected in the business today, capturing numerous accolades and championships throughout The United States, as well as her native Canada. Portia is a force to be reckoned with, particularly with Eric Ryan & Corey Winters by her side, however, is it enough to overcome the fury and rage of Hailey Hatred?

PWO Television Title Match: Omega Aaron Draven vs. ? vs. ? vs. ?
This past weekend on PWO TV, the risk taker, the thrill seeker, the fearless ?Omega? Aaron Draven overcame Bobby Beverly to be the first to qualify in the match to determine PWO’s first ever Television titleholder. PWO management have stated they are searching for the youngest, hungriest, the most focused and determined young athletes looking to make an impact in Pro Wresting Ohio, to represent the TV championship. Omega, however, is battling through a back injury and severely injured ribs, as a result of an assault by Mike Tolar in Tolar’s attempts to send a message to M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross. Draven has survived serious injury before, but with doctors saying Omega will NOT be 100% by August 9, is Aaron Draven getting in over his head on his quest for championship glory? And who will be the three competitors that will join him in this battle?

All this in addition to already announced?

PWO Championship Match: Josh Prohibition vs. Johnny Gargano
Will Josh kill his creation or can Gargano prove he is as good, if not better, than his
egomaniacal teacher?

Championship Contender’s Match: ?Superstar? Mike Tolar vs. ?M-Dogg 20? Matt Cross
Two men craving a shot at PWO gold! Collegiate mat wrestling vs. aerial insanity, which will prevail!

Sex Appeal w/Dawn Decadence vs. Marion Fontaine’s Freaks!
Can Dawn prove beautiful is better or will Fontaine prove beauty is in the eye of the beholder?
