Cleveland All Pro Wrestling News 5/3: Final Card for this Sunday!

Cleveland All Pro Wrestling News: May 3, 2007


Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling returns to the famed Turner’s Hall, located at 7325 Guthrie Ave. in Cleveland, on Sunday afternoon May 6. Doors open at 2 p.m. for our belltime of 3 p.m. This WILL be a taping for CAPW TV on Sports Time Ohio, so bring your signs, banners, and enthusiasm, and be prepared to have your image available in nearly 3 million homes in the state of Ohio, and nationwide on select systems. Tickets are available in advance at any of our ticket outlets, and also at the door the afternoon of the event. Get ready for three solid hours of the best professional wrestling in the area: Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling.

In addition to our scheduled card, a late addition has been added, and it’s an addition that’s certainly going to please all fans of CAPW, specifically of the Jr. Heavyweight Division. Five of the best Junior heavyweights will be gathered together in one ring for one of the wildest most unpredictable confrontations ever, and we can confirm that several very important wrestling dignitaries from all over the country will have their eyes firmly locked on the CAPW ring. Officials from the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup, an annual event based out of Florida that has grown to become one of the most prestigious tournaments in professional wrestling today, will be scouting this match-up searching for perhaps the next individual deemed worthy in their eyes of competing for the Peterson crown. The five men officially confirmed as of now are as follows:

Alex Shelley vs. M-Dogg 20 vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Super Hentai vs. Shiima Xion

It is no doubt impossible to find a more talented collection of Jr. Title contenders than these five. And with the eyes of the wrestling world, and no doubt Jr. Champion Zach Gowen, focused on this particular match, all five men are no doubt prepared to do whatever it takes to come out on top.

This in addition to other blockbuster matches already signed:

CAPW Heavyweight Title: Tracy Smothers vs. “The War Machine” Rhino
Tracy Smothers is credited as helping get Rhino hired in the original ECW some years ago, but clearly the good natured gestures are very much in these men’s pasts. 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!?

CAPW Television Title: Jason Bane vs. Conrad Kennedy III
The unstoppable Bane is still in pursuit of CAPW Heavyweight Champion Tracy Smothers following several encounters between the two that saw Smothers use every shortcut in the book to come out on top. While Bane is confident he can once again unify both of CAPW’s top singles championships, he’ll have to get through Conrad Kennedy III on May 6th before he can even think about Smothers. CK3 has proven himself dangerous and effective in virtually every environment he’s been placed into, and if anyone can topple the monster known as Bane, it could be the resourceful CK3. Rumors state that Tracy Smothers has already attempted to contact CK3, although the details of the call are not known. Is Smothers searching for more allies to help keep Bane as far away from the CAPW Title as possible?

CAPW Jr. Heavyweight Title: Zach Gowen vs. Super Hentai
The One-Legged Wonder makes another defense of the coveted Jr. Heavyweight Title against a man who is a relative newcomer to CAPW, but has toured the world forging a reputation for himself for nearly a decade. Super Hentai has won big time matches and championships from here to Japan and Hawaii and back, and has wrestled and oftentimes beaten many of the top X Division stars currently showcased on TNA television. Super Hentai has the opportunity to capture gold in CAPW for the first time, but it will be no easy task in this match-up of two gutsy relentless competitors.

Grudge Match: Johnny Gargano vs. Alex Shelley
Gargano and Shelley met twice last year and both encounters were praised as some of the best technical wrestling encounters to be showcased in Cleveland in quite some time. Gargano and Shelley each scored one victory, but neither was able to decisively prove to the other who the better man was. Now, with Gargano intent on proving himself as the best Jr. Heavyweight in CAPW, whether or not he is Jr. Champion, Gargano issued the challenge to his toughest rival to finally have the long-awaited rubber match. It’s the cocky young upstart Gargano attempting to prove himself once and for all against the established international star Shelley in their third and final one-on-one meeting.

#1 Tag Title Contender Match: Michigan Invasion vs. Aftermath/Matthew Justice
CAPW’s tag team division is not only the most competitive division in CAPW, but perhaps the most competitive tag division anywhere in recent memory. At our last event, an unprecedented 26 tag teams split into 2 battle royals for the right to challenge whomever would survive the Ladder Match as tag team champions. 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!

Jessica Havok vs. Nikki & Sassy Stephanie
Jessica Havok has secured the position of JT Lightning’s personal bodyguard and after only a few short weeks on the job, she’s proven her worth to alleged six man tag title co-holder, establishing herself as the toughest woman to perhaps ever step foot into CAPW. The lack of competition for Havok has gotten to the point where she is openly accepting challengers from two women at a time. It will be a first for CAPW when we witness a 2-on-1 women’s handicap match.

Da Munchies & JT Lightning make another defense of the mythical 6 man tag title!
Michael Hellborn & Barry Sagittarius vs. Hobo Joe and Gregory Iron!
Tyrone Evans & Josh Emanuel vs. Chris Hybrid & Jeff Brooks!
Ironman vs. Robbie Starr!

Tickets WILL be available at the door, do not miss out this Sunday on the live CAPW Experience!
