Wrestling fans, 2015 started off hotter than ever for PWP, with major developments at our annual Year of the Phoenix event. Now, we move forward to February 28th, with huge matches taking place! Let’s see what’s in store!
PWP Heavyweight Championship:
Abu Colossus Vs. “Babyface” Tony Cortez
Tony Cortez returned to PWP at last year’s Anniversary Spectacular, and has been on a tear ever since. In January he defeated Ryan Slade in another fantastic match, and later in the night he explained that it was time to fight for the PWP Heavyweight Championship one more time, and he had already signed a contract to face the champion on February 28th. No one could have predicted how the night would unfold however, and after defeating Branden Juarez, Darren “Thunder” Russell was attacked and challenged by Abu Colossus! After some controversial decisions, Colossus became the PWP Heavyweight Champion for the first time since 2008! Now these two PWP Icons will clash in the main event on February 28th in what is sure to be a classic bout. But can Babyface become a 3 time PWP Heavyweight Champion? Or will Abu continue to show the total brutality we have seen as of late, and leave the building with the title once more? You don’t want to miss this one!
PWP Tag Team Championship:
Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling Vs. “The Beautiful Bodies” Derek Cornell & Brian Gott
Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling have had a stranglehold on the PWP tag team division for almost a year now. Any team put in front of them has been defeated. Their tactics used to win are often questionable, but their level of in ring ability and talent cannot be denied. However, if any team has what it takes to defeat them, it is certainly “The Beautiful Bodies”. Brian Gott made his official return to PWP last month, and reformed one of the most popular tag teams in PWP history. Now Gott, along with Derek Cornell, vie for the titles in a rematch. But to defeat Wyatt & Sterling means not only out-wrestling them but out-smarting them as well. Can it be done? Be there February 28th to find out!
What’s Next For Darren “Thunder” Russell?
Darren “Thunder’ Russell defeated Branden Juarez in a vicious Street Fight in January, capping off their rivalry, and proving he is a worthy PWP Heavyweight Champion. When Abu Colossus attacked him and demanded he put the title on the line in an impromptu match, Russell simply had too much pride to say no, despite the brutal match he had just endured. The referee rang the bell, and moments later, Russell was without his title for the first time since last August. Many have questioned his decision, and Russell has stayed quiet for the most part. He has however, notified PWP officials that on February 28th, he plans to address Abu Colossus, the controversy surrounding the title, and the PWP fans. Don’t miss out on what Russell has to say!
“Simply Ravishing” Ryan Slade & “The Greece Pit”
Back in December, L-Ray & Ryan Slade were involved in a match that had opportunities to face the PWP Heavyweight Champion. Neither man won, but since that match, “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece has held Slade responsible for L-Ray’s loss, and after Slade helped “The Karaoke King” Purple & Dalton Lee Roth get a win over “The Greece Pit” in January, the Pit laid a beating into Slade after his match. Slade’s motto as of late is “Hakuna Matata”, but Axel Greece has vowed that after what he has in store for Slade on February 28th, he will have much to worry about!
“Showtime” Bradley Charles’ Next Move
Bradley Charles was sure he was going to defeat Hardcore Holly in January. After the loss he seemed devastated. He planned on using that win as a catalyst to superstardom. So what’s next for SBC? The former PWP Heavyweight Champion has vowed to make it back to the top and contend for the title once again.
