Fans at Saturday’s “AAPW Collision” taping were treated to a night of intense in-ring action and a fair amount of surprises, proving why it pays to be there in person rather than just watching on TV.
The big surprise of the night came when Executive Producer Chris Hagstrom told fans Ring of Honor World Champion Davey Richards would be appearing at the next “Collision” taping on Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Black Diamond Harley-Davidsion Warehouse in Marion.
Richards is considered by many to be one of the best wrestlers in the world. He captured the ROH title from tag team partner Eddie Edwards in June and has found success wrestling across the globe, including earning a spot in the semi-finals of this year’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
“Having the nationally recognized heavyweight champion from Ring of Honor on ‘Collision’ shows how All American Pro Wrestling continues to grow and give back to the fans. We couldn’t have been happier with the response,” Hagstrom said.
Why is Richards coming to AAPW? The only way to find out is by attending the August taping.
AAPW also debuted a new, official “Collision” T-shirt, produced by Silkworm. The shirts, black with the show’s logo on the front, will be available beginning at the August taping. One lucky fan, Josh Alderman of Marion, took home the first shirt.
More AAPW merchandise will be available in the future. Let us know what kind of items you’d like to see by connecting with us on Facebook, Twitter or the discussion boards at allamericanprowrestling.com.
Match results from Saturday’s taping will be posted after broadcast. “AAPW Collision” debuts at noon on Saturday, Sept. 3, on WSIL TV-3. Episodes will air in that timeslot every other week.
AAPW makes its way to Black Diamond Harley-Davidson, the new home of “Collision,” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28. Doors open at 1, for ticket information click here.
