On February 21st the historic Lawford Theater(225 W Main, Havana,IL) will see a fantastic match between two of the Midwest/Central States very best ring technicians when “The Apex” Blake Steel meets the debuting “Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt for a classic battle between the ropes. Blake Steel is fresh off the biggest single night of his wrestling career by winning the inaugural Buckley Cup ( besting Louis Lyndon, Ethan Page and Tommaso Ciampa in route to victory and earning a Franchise title shot for March in the process), but things are never easy in PGP as Steel receives far more than a mere tune up match when he faces Jeremy Wyatt for the first time. Jeremy earned the moniker “Belt Collector” by doing just that, accumulating dozens of championship belts in his storied career, simply put Wyatt routinely meets and beats the best this sport has to offer. Well aware of each others skill and reputation on the circuit, occasionally crossing paths in locker rooms at various shows, both are eager to meet in the squared circle and prove who is the superior athlete.

Wilkins vs Schwanz vs Nice triple threat match added to NEW FRONTIERS
Three of PGP’s best fight for a big win February 21st when Remi Wilkins, “Pornstache” Peter Schwanz and Nelson”Mr.” Nice light up the Lawford Theater(225 W. Main, Havana,IL) with this spectacular elimination match. Fast rising star Remi Wilkins returns to the Proving Ground, having won over plenty of the PGP faithful as a double tough competitor with an electrifying personality. Peter Schwanz has a personality that’s won over few if any fans to date, but he may bring some around based purely on his skills and abilities in the ring, like it or not this guy knows how to win. Nelson”Mr.”Nice has found his brightest spotlight at the side of “Dirdey” Jake Dirden, being the man who originally brought our current Franchise champion to the Proving Ground. Mr. Nice isn’t a one trick pony, he’s a very formidable competitor in his own right and should never be taken lightly. Looking to shake the image of “the Dirden whisperer” and establish his own reputation is fueling Nelson to reach that next level. Three combatants in the ring creates chaos and maximizes the need to be opportunistic, it also creates wildly unpredictable action for the fans! No matter who gets their hand raised, this match is a guaranteed winner!!!
Wilkins vs Schwanz vs Nice joins an already rock solid line up that features Jake Dirden vs Mark Sterling, Blake Steel vs Jeremy Wyatt, Mario Crivello vs Kyle Matthews and Yabo Gustobo vs Marion Fontaine plus more great matches still to come!!! At only $10($5 for kids) you’re getting a hella good show at a hella good price.

There’s no need for a degree in advanced mathematics to triangulate where you need to be….ENTER THE PROVING GROUND!!!
Cutting Edge Champion Mario Andrew Crivello vs Kyle Matthews at NEW FRONTIERS
Saturday, February 21st, the Lawford Theater(225W Main,Havana,IL) is the place to see PGP’s reigning Cutting Edge champion M.A.C. meet the debuting Kyle Matthews with the title hanging in the balance. Much awesomeness will occur as the treacherous Crivello battles one of independent wrestlings most technically sound competitors. Mario is still stinging from a tough loss to world class talent Tommaso Ciampa at the Buckley Memorial Tournament, expect him to be focused, intense and looking to remind people that he is a champion. A perfected art of villainy and a gifted knack for seizing opportunity has served Mario well in the Proving Ground so far, but NEW FRONTIERS is truly a new challenge.
Kyle Matthews is coming to make a statement by capitalizing on a chance to quickly capture a title that has a growing reputation and recognition. Cutting Edge is not only the title he’s after, it’s an apt description of Matthews talent in the ring as well. Coming out of Marietta,GA, Kyle has been lighting up the southeast for most of the last decade. Winning titles and meeting a who’s who of indy stars in promotions across the southeast, it’s time his skills get the wider notice they deserve. A sure way to do that is wresting the title away from the reigning champ, Kyle Matthews is fully capable of doing exactly that. Trained by the legendary “Nightmare” Ted Allen and battle tested by some of the best in the business, expect Kyle Matthews to impress!!!
Crivello vs Matthews is only one of the great matches on a fully loaded card of 100% wicked cool independent professional wrestling.
