THIS PAST SUNDAY: CLEAR TAG CHAMPIONS CROWNED AS 6 MEN MAKE HISTORY
This past Sunday saw the culmination of a red-hot tag team rivalry that has consumed the CAPW Tag Team Titles for much of the past six months. The struggle of Faith in Nothing to cement their legacy as the best tag team in Ohio, and Q&A and Irish Airborne’s quest to prove otherwise led to one of the most breathtaking and phenomenal altercations in the storied history of CAPW. Knowing that months of work and sacrifice boiled down to this one very moment, all six men gave of their hearts & souls, sacrificed their health, their careers, and their livelihoods for the chance to reach the pinnacle of their division, for the right to be called the best. All six men left battered and bruised but only two men left as champions. Throught all the chaos, Christian Faith & Vincent Nothing were able to not win, but survive, and retain the tag team titles. Faith in Nothing have proved they are the best tag team in Ohio today, but all six men proved the more than showed the heart, guts, and determination of being a champion.
Stay tuned to Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling on Sports Time Ohio in the coming weeks, and be on the look-out for the broadcast of this very special and unforgettable encounter.

JOHNNY GARGANO HAS A SPECIAL STATEMENT TO MAKE
CAPW’s hottest prospect, 19-year-old Johnny Gargano hasn’t been the same, hasn’t had the same swagger to his step, since losing the CAPW Jr. Heavyweight Title a couple of months ago. Gargano feeds his ego on being better than everyone around him, and certainly without that title belt, it’s hard to claim to be the best. Gargano has been desperate to regain the spotlight and acclaim that came with being champion, but with CAPW management currently denying him a rematch citing “unprofessional conduct” as its main reason, Gargano has had to search elsewhere to establish himself. Gargano requested we print a statement from him this week, and here is Mr. Gargano’s statement in its entirety:
“First things’ first, I’d just like to state Zach Gowen is a low-down, dirty cheater! He faked an injury AND pulled the tights. Now he’s ducking me for my rematch? Some champion he is. Way to represent the company, pal. Zach Gowen is half the man I am…literally! I am STILL the top guy in CAPW, the face of Cleveland All Pro, title or no title. If I can’t have a title shot to prove that, then I have a different way to go about it. I have a challenge to make. I’m challenging one of my toughest opponents to date, an international star, one of the top guys in the world today, ALEX SHELLEY. Shelley, the score is tied buddy, I beat you once and you (in a fluke, mind you) beat me once. It’s time to settle this thing once and for all. So what I’m proposing, May 6th, CAPW, two of the biggest rivals lock up one more time! Gargano/Shelley 3! Alex, the ball’s in your court, don’t drop it. You may know me very well, but there’s only one thing to remember: W.W.J.D. What Won’t Johnny Do? Be there Alex, and experience it again, first-hand. Toodles!”
Gargano’s encounters with Alex Shelley last year were nothing short of technical classics. Although both men proved themselves as among the best mat wrestlers in the world, it has yet to be proven who between them is the better man. Over the next week, we’ll inform both CAPW management and Mr. Shelley of this challenge and report the results back to you in one week’s time.

CAPW Heavyweight Title: Tracy Smothers vs. “The War Machine” Rhino
Tracy has dominated CAPW as its heavyweight champion all year, but now faces the challenge of a former ECW and NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Rhino is 6’2”, 280 lbs. of aggression and has been nearly unstoppable through most of his entire career. Now Rhino returns to Cleveland with the hope of adding CAPW gold to his resume, however will his brute strength be enough to counter one of the craftiest veterans to ever step inside of a ring? Can Smothers outsmart Rhino and escape with the title or will the Wild Eyed Southern Boy be cut in half with a Gore!?

The winners of the first battle royal, Aftermath & Matthew Justice, do battle with the winners of the second battle royal, Truth Martino & N8 Mattson, with the winners to receive a tag title shot that night!
