* Card Subject to Change
“The White Wolf” Jheras Grey VS The Amazing Zondo
The White Wolf is hungry for victory and another opportunity to capture a PPW title. After losing a Michigan State Cruiserweight Title Bout in December, Jheras Grey is out for blood. Standing in his path is the Future Contender known as the Amazing Zondo. This outlandish and energetic firecracker loves to play mind games with his opponents. A win for Zondo would be a great stepping stone towards success.
“Hard to Kill” Dylan Derringer VS David Weston
Although many have tried to “Kill Dill” no one has succeeded. Dylan Derringer has an uncanny ability to survive the most brutal of beatings and find a way to fight back. Derringer is one of the most popular Cruiserweights in PPW and he’ll be the fan favorite as he steps into the ring with the arrogant rookie David Weston. This vanity driven martial arts expert believes that he is the next big star in the making and is out to make a name for himself after he “Kills Dill.”
Road Rash VS Shaun Mordechi
The Nomad brawler Road Rash fancies himself to be quite the handyman. His vast array of hammers somehow always find a way to ringside where he will not hesitate to crack his opponent across the skull or any other body part he can get a hold of. Rash is a multiple time Michigan State Tag Team Champion and his confidence is at an all time high as he steps into the ring at Make Your Own Luck. His opponent Shaun Mordechi is a legit heavy metal drummer turned pro wrestler. This headbanging grappler is a loose cannon in the ring and he will look to top the charts with a victory over the PPW veteran.
Samson Real VS Adam Drake
After losing the Michigan State Heavyweight Title to Dylan Night, Samson Real is on the warpath as he attempts to climb his way back off of the very mountain that he has fallen from. Real’s championship reign was impressive as he defeated some of the best wrestlers in the United States, but now he has to start from the bottom against rookie Adam Drake. As a member of the Lighthouse Adam Drake has begun to make a name for himself. This athletic striker is a former hockey player who gave up a chance to be an all star athlete to join the sinister leader of the Lighthouse Derrick Draven. Since joining the dark side Drake has scored some impressive victories and a win over a former Michigan State Heavyweight Champ would automatically place him at the top of PPW’s main contender list.
Lethal Ladies of Wrestling – Alexis Royale VS Heather Blue
After a backstage altercation turned friends into enemies, Alexis Royale and Heather Blue cannot wait to tear each other apart. Standing at 6’1, Royale is a powerhouse wrestler who loves to use an assortment of suplexes and throws to weaken her opponents before tapping them out with her “Royale Lock.” The energetic rookie Heather Blue is barely over 5ft tall, but what she lacks in height she makes up with attitude. This young athlete isn’t afraid of any challenger, man or woman and she has no plans of backing down against Royale even though she’s going into the match as an underdog.

PPW’s Champions – The Upper Echelon & James Alexander VS Danny Astro, Kid EZ, King Naba, & winner of Phil Ingram VS Ray “Alpha” Adams
