Scheduled for this episode:

PWO Championship: ?M-Dogg 20? Matt Cross Defends Against Johnny Gargano
It is a battle months in the making, with high professional and personal stakes on the line. The Matt Cross/Johnny Gargano issues go back to day one in PWO but intensified when Gargano captured the #1 Contendership to Cross? title, and proceeded to feign retirement as a means of psychological warfare toward M-Dogg. Now, with mentor Josh Prohibition at ringside, a man who has been consumed and obsessed with the PWO Title, young Johnny Gargano enters the biggest match of his young career. Matt Cross is motivated, not just by competition, but by his personal disdain for Gargano’s immaturity and obnoxiousness. Can M-Dogg beat respect into Gargano or will we crown a new PWO Heavyweight Champion?

Super Hentai vs. ?Bloody? Morty Rackem w/Matthew Justice
The miscommunication of the team once fondly known as ?Pirate Justice? have intensified as time has gone on. Rackem’s insistence on ruthless, barbaric, pirate-like tactics is a stark contrast to the calm, laid-back style of partner Justice, and it seems each man has his a crossroads. However, there will be no room for distractions when Rackem meets Super Hentai. This Hayabusa, Japan-trained athlete has been all over the world, and has been on a mission since his PWO return, set out to climb the ranks of Pro Wrestling Ohio, until he has a match with the man who put him on the shelf nearly one year ago, Johnny Gargano. Can Hentai’s controlled intensity lead to a victory? And what’s next to unfold in the ongoing saga of Pirate Justice?

Homeless Adventures: Adjusting to Newfound Riches
Best friends Hobo Joe & Aaron Maguire seem to be moving in opposite directions. Hobo Joe, recent winner of a $25,000 lottery jackpot, has more money than he ever has before in life, meanwhile Aaron Maguire is as poor and desperate as ever, watching the sands of the hourglass tick away as Marshall ?The Bull? Gambino and his ?family? come to collect Maguire’s debts. Last week, Maguire’s fear of getting ?whacked? led to Hobo Joe and partner Bobby Beverly losing their match, how will Hobo and Maguire adjust to their roles in life this week? How will Hobo spend his money, and what does Maguire intend to do to save his own life?

The Rock Show Returns with Mike Tolar
After months of constantly pestering PWO management, The Clash have purchased time on PWO TV to present ?The Rock Show?, a talk show starring Ernie Ballz & Brian Bender themselves. This week, in addition to giving you their no doubt obstructed view on life and logic, they are joined by guest ?Superstar? Mike Tolar. Tolar is one week away from a #1 Contender’s Match with Jason Bane, and will no doubt speak out about this, in addition to his newfound lopsided relationship with rookies EJ Georgio & Ben Fruith, whom Tolar has seemingly manipulated into being glorified servants. What will the egotistical and loud-mouthed Tolar say?

All this and more! If you don?t get Sports Time Ohio, call your cable or satellite provider and demand it!
