Just added to the card this week:
CAPW Tag Titles: Faith in Nothing vs. Robbie Starr (w/ Lexi Lane) & Christian Vaughn
Tag team champions Christian Faith & Vincent Nothing attempt to continue to build their legacy and reputation fresh off of an impressive victory against The Michigan Invasion last month. Their opponents this month donâ€™t have the most experience as a tag team together, but have proven themselves worthy competition: Christian Vaughn along with his partner Robbie Starr, accompanied as always by the lovely Lexi Lane. While Starr & Lane have become quite the prolific couple in CAPW in recent months, it will take more than that to save Starr & Vaughn from the smash-mouth aggressive style that has catapulted Faith In Nothing to the top of the tag ranks for so long. With CAPWâ€™s biggest show ever just weeks away, all four will be looking for major momentum.
Grudge Match: Da Munchies & JT Lightning vs. Mega Sexy
Last month, everyone in attendance at Turnerâ€™s Hall witnessed one of the most physical showings of brutality in recent memory, as JT Lightning, Too Cool Abdul, and Dick Trimmins, the mythical World Six-Man Tag Champions, delivered a brutal assault on â€œMegastarâ€ Marion Fontaine both during and after the match, leaving Fontaineâ€™s chest a sickening combination of red and purple. This Sunday, Fontaine rejoins his â€œMega Sexyâ€ tag partners â€œSimply Sexyâ€ Shawn Blaze and â€œPony Boyâ€ TJ Dynamite to battle the enraged veterans one more time. Will the alleged six-man champions beat some more respect into Mega Sexy or will the upstarts pull off a surprise upset over the â€œchampsâ€?
CAPW Television Title: CK3 vs. Jake Crist
Conrad Kennedy III pulled off the ultimate con last month when he screwed Jason Bane out of the Television Title, thanks in large part to Heavyweight Champion Tracy Smothers. With Bane making his intentions very well known of seeking vengeance on Smothers in the very near future, it leaves CK3 seemingly off the hook for the time being as he begins his Television Title reign. His opposition for his first title defense is one-half of the wildly successful Irish Airborne tag team, Jake Crist. Jake has proven himself as part of one of the pre-eminent tag teams in wrestling today, but will he be as strong of a Television Title contender as he was for tag team gold? And how successful with CK3â€™s first title defense be?
â€œM-Dogg 20â€ Matt Cross vs. The Aftermath vs. Jason Gory
Fresh off of a huge victory in a six-way match that qualified him for Floridaâ€™s Jeff Peterson Cup, M-Dogg 20 is back and once again faced with the challenge of multiple high-flying death-defying athletes in the same match. One opposition, The Aftermath, who had the biggest match of his career in that six-way encounter, and is looking to have even greater success this Sunday. The other opposition, Jason Gory, a Hells Canyon, Idaho native whoâ€™s been making major strides throughout Pennsylvania, quickly earning a reputation as one of the most talented Jr. Heavyweights in the area today. All three men collide in what is sure to be the most energetic fast-paced encounters of the evening.
Plus: The Bouncer goes one-on-one with Luis Diamante in a special bonus match!
In addition to the following matches already publicly announced:
CAPW Heavyweight Title: Tracy Smothers vs. The Blue Meanie
Itâ€™s a feud that has been ongoing for ten years and counting, and shows no signs of letting up. The Smothers/Meanie bad blood began back in the original ECW, with Smothers representing the Full Blooded Italians (FBI) and Meanie representing the Blue World Order (bWo). After a series of unforgettable wrestling contests, as well as dance-offs, nothing was settled. The rivalry was re-ignited two years ago after a falling out between the two stemming from the aftermath of the controversial first WWE ECW One Night Stand pay-per-view. Theyâ€™ve battled each other all over the US and into Europe, but never have they met for a major singles title, but June 3 in Cleveland the stakes are raised as Meanie attempts to dance his way to CAPW gold, and Smothers attempts to capture any momentum he can leading into a potential ominous encounter with Bane.
CAPW Jr. Heavyweight Title Match: Super Hentai vs. Shiima Xion
Super Hentai solidified his CAPW singles career at our last live event when he defeated Zach Gowen to capture his first singles gold in Cleveland, adding this accomplishment to an extensive list of other titles heâ€™s captured around the world. However, Hentai finds himself the central focus of an extremely competitive division. The first of many deserving challengers is â€œThe Future of Fashionâ€ Shiima Xion, who certainly goes back a long way with Hentai. Not only were Hentai & Shiima a short-lived tag team combination here in CAPW before choosing to pursue careers in the singles ranks, but Hentai also was instrumental in Shiima Xionâ€™s training to become a professional wrestler some years back. Itâ€™s a case of teacher vs. student on June 3 as Xion attempts to surpass his former mentor and become Jr. Heavyweight champion.
Jason Bane vs. CJ Oâ€™Doyle
The 6â€™8 300+ pound former Television Champion Bane knows he may be a mere 2 months away from the most important match of his career. On August 5, Bane will step foot inside a career-shortening 15-foot-high steel cage and challenge Tracy Smothers for the CAPW Heavyweight Title should Smothers escape June 3 with title in tact. June 3 will be CAPWâ€™s and Baneâ€™s final stop on the road to August 5â€™s â€œNight of Legendsâ€ extravaganza and Bane is looking for every bit of momentum attainable, as is Smothers. Bane has plenty of motivation, having been screwed out of the Heavyweight Title countless times, and also losing his Television Title to Conrad Kennedy III thanks in large part to Smothers. CJ Oâ€™Doyle is a major player in the eastern Pennsylvania wrestling scene, but with the focus and rage building inside Bane, heâ€™ll have his work cut out for him. Will Smothers and Bane be able to stay out of the otherâ€™s way or will tempers explode again just as they did last time they were in the same building one month ago?
Johnny Gargano vs. Metal Master
The 19-year-old prodigy Gargano is coming off a career-high win against TNA Star Alex Shelley a few weeks ago. While Shelley has been overheard requesting a rematch, rumor has it Gargano has vehemently denied the request, claiming heâ€™s already proven heâ€™s â€œbetter than Shelleyâ€. Gargano, however, has signed on to meet The Metal Master, a mysterious enigma that has reportedly been surfacing in numerous locations throughout North American and Japan. While we canâ€™t decipher much of the Masterâ€™s past, based on reports, it seems he is also a master on the mat and will prove to be more than enough competition for the upstart Gargano. Can Gargano continue his streak of success?
Jessica Havok vs. Neveah
We recently told you of the open challenge set forth by Jessica Havok, the newfound personal bodyguard of one JT Lightning, among JTâ€™s other frequest associates. Havok has without a doubt proven herself in just a short span of time to be the most dominant female athlete to ever step into a CAPW ring, competing against multiple opponents in one night, regardless of the size, experience level, or even gender. Havokâ€™s open challenge has been answered by a woman known as Neveah, a tough individual who has made her name throughout the Ohio area in recent times. She could score the win of her career on June 3rd or she may become the latest in a growing list of Jessica Havokâ€™s victims.
B.E.T. vs. The Clash
Tyrone Evans and Josh Emanuel have formed a very formidable and intimidating duo to add to the already stacked CAPW Tag Team Division, calling themselves B.E.T. While weâ€™re still unsure what exactly that stands for, their track record in the ring is something that cannot be mistaken. However, B.E.T. did not count on seeing a couple of old rivals come onto the CAPW scene shortly afterward: The team of Brian Bender & Ernie Ballz, collectively known as The Clash, followed B.E.T. into CAPW and were quick to make a challenge. These teams have met several times throughout Ohio in the past, but on June 3 their feud gets taken to the next level as it will be on display in CAPW for the very first time.
CAPW BIGGEST SHOW EVER COMING AUGUST 5!
Traditionally, CAPW provides its biggest and best live event of the calendar year during the summer as Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling celebrates its anniversary in style. This year, however, CAPW takes it one step farther. The announcement was made official this past Sunday that on Sunday, August 5, Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling makes its debut in the Plain Dealer Pavilion, located on 2014 Sycamore Street to celebrate our anniversary with â€œA Night of Legendsâ€. Itâ€™ll be the largest, most star-studded happening in Cleveland All-Pro history! Come join the record-breaking crowd that will be on hand to witness all the biggest, best, and brightest stars from wrestlingâ€™s past, present, and future.
Following a wild altercation at our last live event, the eveningâ€™s main event has already been penciled in. Should Tracy Smothers escape our June 3rd live event still CAPW Heavyweight Champion, he will finally step into the ring one-on-one against the 6â€™8 300+ pound unstoppable Jason Bane. Smothers has been ducking Baneâ€™s challenge and screwing him at every opportunity, culminating at our last event when Smothers was directly responsible for Bane losing his Television Title to Conrad Kennedy III, shattering Baneâ€™s hopes of unifying CAPWâ€™s two top singles titles for the second time. Now, Bane will face Smothers one-on-one, and there will be nowhere for Tracy to hide, no shortcut for him to takeâ€¦ because the match takes place inside a 15 foot high STEEL CAGE!
Much much more will be revealed about CAPWâ€™s Plain Dealer Pavilion debut set for August 5th. Check back right here NEXT WEEK as we reveal the first of MANY hot news updates and details regarding this extravaganza!
