Silas Young Defeats Dylan Night to Become New Michigan State Heavyweight Champion
Silas Young shocked the Michigan wrestling scene by defeating Dylan Night to become the Michigan State Heavyweight Champion. After an all out war, Silas was able to pull off what many thought was impossible, dethroning Dylan Night from his historic title reign. Jack Kelly and his Upper Echelon are reeling after the devastating loss of their second title in less than a month’s time. First it was Nick Xero losing the AIWF Continental Championship to “Hard to Kill” Dylan Derringer. Now, after an unforgettable match in Holland and after losing the most prestigious title in the state of Michigan, The Upper Echelon must regroup and prepare to defend the only titles they have left. The Michigan State Tag Team Titles.
Meanwhile PPW has already confirmed that Dylan Night will utilize the rematch clause at Battle in the Creek. Originally, the winner of Night VS Young would go on to face Tommy Dreamer in an Extreme Rules match on October 29 at Battle in the Creek at Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek. Now that Night has chosen to take his rematch PPW has no choice but to make the main event an “Extreme Rules 3 Way Dance” with Michigan’s Heavyweight Title at stake. PPW has announced that this epic match will indeed be the main event of the evening.

Hard to Kill Captures the AIWF Continental Title in Stunning Fashion
If you don’t know about Dylan Derringer yet, then get ready, because it’s only a matter of time before all the fans of PPW are talking about the new AIWF Continental Champion. This explosive athlete is young in the game and from the start he’s been labeled as undersized and underwhelming. He’s been told that he didn’t have the body, ability, or charisma to be a champion. Most wrestlers would have accepted their failure and quit, but not Derringer, it’s just not in his DNA. Instead, Derringer took those words, mixed them with gunpowder, swallowed them whole and used them to redefine himself. He used the criticism and doubt to fuel his fire in the ring. And he’s used his story of perseverance to inspire others outside of the ring. For the past few years Derringer has quietly turned himself into a solid professional wrestler, but in the past few months he has truly earned the name “Hard to Kill” by demonstrating an incalculable amount of heart and grit combined with an uncanny ability to simply never stay down. “The kid just won’t die” is a common phrase his frustrated opponents utter as they grovel after yet another unsuccessful pinfall. This past September in Flint, Derringer fought the odds yet again and defeated the Upper Echelon’s Nick Xero thus ending a 3 year reign as champion. The audience erupted for Derringer as he pulled out the upset win and now Derringer looks ahead to this fall and winter’s schedule with high hopes of several successful Continental Title Defenses.
“The Don” Orders a Hit on Jay Leo
Earlier this year the Made Men made their debut in Pure Pro Wrestling and made their presence known right from the jump. They were entertaining, exciting in the ring, aways trash talking, and seemingly able to back it up. “The Don” Tone Leone & Jay “Babyface” Leo were a well oiled machine developed nicely by PPW’s training program. Although it was a great start for the budding team, things turned ugly when a losing streak started over the Summer and continued on to this past October 8th’s event at the Holland VFW. After suffering yet another loss, this time to the hands of The Puzzle Express, The Don shocked the PPW Faithful when he ordered a hit on Jay Leo coming by way of a baseball bat courtesy of The Don’s new enforcer Adam Drake. It was clear that The Don had reached a boiling point and Jay Leo was the man he blamed.
Things have been quiet from the family as of late, but PPW expects the Don to compete at Battle in the Creek at Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek. Perhaps The Don will shed some more light on the situation in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, The Don’s former tag team partner Jay Leo is prepared to undergo major reconstructive knee surgery on 10/14 and will be out of action for 6-8 months.
