ITâ€™S OFFICIAL: SAMOA JOE RETURNS TO CAPW THIS OCTOBER!
Fresh off of shattering previous CAPW attendance records with his match against Rhino this past April, it was inevitable that the â€œSamoan Submission Machineâ€ would be inked to return to the Cleveland area in the near future. Now, at long last, we can finally give you the dateâ€¦ It takes place Sunday October the 8th right back at Turnerâ€™s Hall in Cleveland. While Samoa Joeâ€™s opponent has not yet officially been named, Newsline has the inside track, and next week, right here at CAPW Newsline we WILL confirm the opponent of Samoa Joe, and sources tell us it is yet another star recognized the world over who will be making a return to CAPW. We will give you more on this storym and other major stars confirmed, in seven daysâ€™ time.
CAPW LIVE ACTION: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT GARGANOâ€™S!
Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling presents not one but TWO action-packed live events in the month of September. Not only will our monthly visit to Turnerâ€™s Hall take place as planned on September 10, but one week prior on Sunday afternoon, September 3rd, CAPW will invade Gargano’s Pizza at 3486 West 25th Street Cleveland, OH with a 4 p.m. belltime. All tickets are only $10, call (216) 749-0336 for more information. This WILL be a television taping for Sports Time Ohio, so bring your signs, banners, and be prepared to be showcased to all of Ohio. Already signed for the show are the following matches:
King Kong Bundy vs. Chris Cronus
The legendary â€œMaster of the 5 Countâ€ and the â€œWalking Condominiumâ€ is on his way to Cleveland! King Kong Bundy has been in the ring with virtually every top name over the past 3 decades, and even has a WrestleMania main event to his credit. On the other side, Chris Cronus has been one of the long-time near-unstoppable forces in CAPW, particularly in recent months, where he has not only captured tag team gold, but competed on televised World Wrestling Entertainment television as well. Itâ€™s a classic example of Irresistable Force vs. Immovable Object at Garganoâ€™s September 3.
Alex Shelley vs. Johnny Gargano
It was no secret that the brash young Gargano has been regarded as a future break-out star in professional wrestling, but even Gargano loyalists had to be surprised to see Gargano score a victory over one of the most skilled and well-known mat tacticians today, TNA star Alex Shelley. Shelley quickly asked for and received a rematch, and will attempt to even the score with Clevelandâ€™s cockiest up-and-comer on September 3.
JT Lightning vs. Doink the Clown
The veteran and current one-half of the CAPW Tag Team Champions has battled against virtually every style and strategy in the game, but how will he fare against the most unorthodox of them all? â€œThe Prince of Pranksâ€ will be in rare form but will he be able to outsmart Lightning, and his advisor Krystal Frost?
MATCHES ANNOUNCED FOR SEPTEMBER SLAUGHTER!
CAPW returns to Turners Hall located at 7325 Guthrie, Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, September 10th with at 4:00 Belltime. This WILL be a television taping for CAPW on Sports Time Ohio and already announced are the following matches.
CAPW Heavyweight Title: Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero
Reigning champion â€œDouble Câ€ and Chris Hero are certainly no strangers to each other. Theyâ€™ve found themselves as allies and opponents over the years, most recently aligned on an anti-ROH crusade. However, even the most tight-knit forces are susceptible to dissention when gold, glory, and money is at stake. Claudio and Hero set aside their allegiances to battle for Clevelandâ€™s ultimate prize!
CAPW Jr. Heavyweight Title: Matt Stryker vs. Josh Prohibition
Stryker is undefeated in 2006 as reigning Jr. champion and although the tests continue to get stiffer, the all-business Stryker seems to always get the job done. This time he defends against one of the most prolific athletes in the Cleveland area, a man whoâ€™s traveled the world over in Josh Prohibition. Itâ€™s been several months since Josh has been in a CAPW ring and thereâ€™d be no better way to return than to end Strykerâ€™s dominant winning streak.
Nigel McGuiness vs. Johnny Gargano
Garganoâ€™s stock was raised big time when he defeated Alex Shelley at â€œAugust Onslaughtâ€. Now the big-name tests keep on coming, as Gargano finds himself across the ring from ROH Pure Champion Nigel McGuiness. Nigel brings an exciting hybrid of British and American style wrestling rarely seen in the area. Will it prove too much for the studious prodigy Gargano to overcome?
All this in addition to the already signed special attraction of â€œThe Monsterâ€ Abyss vs. â€œThe Alpha Maleâ€ Monty Brown!
FULL RESULTS FROM â€œAUGUST ONSLAUGHTâ€ held this past Sunday
-CAPW Heavyweight Champion successfully retained his title against former champion Chris Hamrick
-CAPW Television Champion Jason Bane defeated Rhino following Rhino accidentally Goring referee Bobby Potter
-Johnny Gargano continued his hot streak by pinning TNA star Alex Shelley
-Tag champions JT Lightning & Chris Cronus retained by defeating The Bouncer & The Canadian Bad Boy
-Jr. Heavyweight Champion Matt Stryker survived a bloody battle with Ontario prospect Phil Atlas
-Da Munchies continued their newfound aggressive streak defeating Luis Diamante & Billy Taylor
-The Aftermath defeated Kenny Hendrix. Following the match, Hendrix turned on his new-found protÃ©gÃ© Tiger Young, before Aftermath saved Young.
-Gregory Irons, born with a physical disability in his hand, defied the odds and stood up to the 6â€™6 Michael Hellborn, and managed to defeat him with a surprise roll-up. An enraged Hellborn made him pay for it afterward, however, in a disgusting attack.
-The odd couple of Carlton Kaz & the androgynous Super Oprah defeated Zak Vincent & Chris Kahn.
-In special pre-show attractions, Ironman pinned Barry Saggitarious and Michael Hellborn defeated Action Dan Spade
