Pure Power Wrestling kicks off 2017 with must-see night of pro wrestling action
Pure Power Wrestling explodes into 2017 with a can’t-miss card Saturday, January 21 at the annual Gauntlet for the Gold event.
“The Tattooed Terminator” Massive Damage and “The All-American” Steve Rivers will go at it one last time for the PPW Heavyweight Championship, this time there will be no rules, no disqualifications and there MUST be a winner.
Having faced off twice with no definitive winner, PPW Commissioner The Gothic Knight saw fit to schedule this main event match anything goes.
“Our last event ended with the entire locker room cleared out trying get these two guys off of each other,” said Knight. “They can’t follow the rules. They obviously don’t care about the rules. So I’m going to let them do whatever they want. No rules, no nothing. Go out there, have a fight, and decide who is the better man and the Champion.”
Massive Damage is looking to put Rivers behind him once and for all.
“I’ve known Steve Rivers 20 years. We’ve been partners and won tag team titles together. We’ve been enemies and tried to kill one another. We’ve had dog collar matches, we’ve had tarred and feathered matches, we’ve done just about everything under the sun that you can think of and this is it. Two guys with nothing holding us back, and I’m going to be the Champion,” said Massive Damage.
“The All-American” has a different point of view: “My President Donald Trump is going to make America great again, and I am going to make wrestling great again. I’m going to start with the PPW Title. Massive Damage thinks he’s tough, but I’ve been doing this longer than him and I’ve got the entire USA behind me. I don’t need to hide behind rules. I’m going to do just what Mr. Trump did, and win the fight that nobody thinks I can win.”
The co-main event will see the fifth annual Gauntlet for the Gold match as “The Real Deal” Sydney Steele, “Cougar Meat” Kyle Sebastian, Chris Perish, Kato and Kid Cyrus will go at it with the winner earning a shot at the title of their choosing, whenever they want and wherever they want.
The match will feature three former PPW Cruiserweight Champions and a former All-Star Wrestling Trans-Canada Champion.
“I’m the only one in this match that’s ever won a Gauntlet for the Gold,” said Sydney Steele, winner of the inaugural Gauntlet in 20. “I’m the only one walking in with a title around my waist and I’m the only pick to win this match.”
Kyle Sebastian is looking to knock off Steele, and the other three men, to earn the victory. “The A.S.S. [Adult Social Society] have already beat Sydney Steele and his tag partner. I beat Kato, I beat Kid Cyrus, and on January 21 I’m going to win that match and I’m going to look good doing it,” said Sebastian.
Kid Cyrus is looking to earn his first victory in a PPW ring. “I can fly higher and move faster than anyone else in the ring. I’m younger, I’m hungrier and nobody can stop me from getting my first big win in PPW.”
The card will also feature perennial fan favourite The Irishman going head-to-head with The Nightmare to determine the number one contender for the PPW Heavyweight Championship, as well as Kyle Sebastian’s Adult Social Society partner “The Big Sexy Beast” Bradley Graham taking on Sydney Steele’s Alpha-Omega partner (and fellow Monster Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champion) “The Wild Child” Tyler James.
Gauntlet for the Gold will be held at the new home of PPW, the Fritz Sick Memorial Centre (420 – 11 St. S.) LIVE Saturday, January 21.
