WWE Superstar and former member of the Shield
On Saturday March 15, Premier Championship Wrestling’s (PCW) Historic 12th Anniversary Spectacular the Winnipeg born but internationally known pro wrestling star STEVE CORINO ended the 2 year reign of ANTONIO SCORPIO and captured the PCW Heavyweight Title in front of a rabid crowd.
“It was an incredible night of action highlighted by a monumental victory for our new champion,” said PCW Chairman Andrew Shallcross. “PCW has been fortunate to have had an ongoing relationship with Steve (Corino) for several years now. And while some controversy over the way in which he won the title shall be reviewed going forward, calling this moment anything other than historic would be an understatement.”
The controversy mentioned came at the very end of the main event. Scorpio successfully defended the title against international sensation KENNY OMEGA in a thrilling encounter, leaving the champion spent. “OUTLAW” ADAM KNIGHT came to ringside with his tag partner Corino, intending to follow up on his announcement to cash in his “Golden Ticket Contract” and challenge Scorpio right then and there. Shockingly, Corino levelled The Outlaw with the Title Belt and proceeded to cash in the Ticket Himself!
PCW legal analyst “Filthy” Josh Hammerstein will be reviewing the legalities of this title change with Shallcross and the Athletic Commission in the coming days. A verdict will be announced at the upcoming PCW Event to the attendees.
Regardless, as it stands right now- Your NEW PCW Heavyweight Champion is “The King of Old School,” “Mr. Wrestling III” and current Ring of Honor (ROH) Star STEVE CORINO.
