PWX returns to the Chop Shop in Charlotte, NC and live around the world for Rise of Champions VIII on Saturday, February 23, 2013. Tickets are $20 for front row and $10 for general admission and are available at http://pwxpro.com/new/pw
Former WWE star "Hurricane" Shane Helms has promised to be in attendance. Also scheduled to appear:
-Round 1 went to CALEB KONLEY on the mountain top. Round 2, and the PWX Championship, went to ADAM COLE with help from his brothers at the theater. Round 3 saw Cole tap to Konley's O-face last month. Now, two-out-of-three falls at the Chop Shop will settle it all. Fall one must be by submission. Fall two must be by pinfall. And if it must go to a third, the winner will be the Last Man Standing. Can Konley regain his title and strike a death blow to the #DoJoBros before they take a foothold in PWX, or will the "Panama City Playboy" establish himself as the new standard?
-When promoter Tyshion Williams signed EDDIE EDWARDS and RODERICK STRONG as a tag team, he had no idea they would form the #DoJoBros and wreak havoc on PWX. Realizing he had to fight fire with fire, Williams tapped the two men he knew could stand toe to toe with them, KEVIN STEEN and DAVEY RICHARDS. Can Steen and Richards put aside their differences and shut down the rampaging duo, or will their long history prove to be an Achilles heel that Edwards and Strong can exploit?
-After wrestling to a 20 minute draw in York, SC, CEDRIC ALEXANDER went right for CHIP DAY in the melee that closed the night and refused congratulations from his friends. Now Cedric looks to finish what he started in York, but his actions as of late leave one lingering question: Is Cedric Alexander changing?
-After wrestling a classic last month, COREY HOLLIS and CHIVA KID square off once again, but this time with a new prize at stake. PWX is introducing the Innovative TV Title and the winner of this match will become the number one contender for the new championship. Can Chiva Kid continue his winning streak with a second victory over Hollis, or will Corey prove that he learns from his mistakes and snap Chiva's streak?
-"Mr. Elite" DREW MEYERS and "The Southern Savior" JOHN SKYLER have joined forces and say they will be the "Elite Saviors" of PWX. ERNIE OSIRIS doesn't agree and has challenged the two to a match against he and a mystery partner. Osiris will only say that his partner is a former World Champion, and speculation is running wild as to who it is. Can Osiris and his mystery man stop the new team at the starting blocks, or will Meyers and Skyler prove too elite for them?
-MIKE BENNETT and MARIA KANELLIS also return to PWX to face ZANE RILEY and AMBER O'NEAL. Can the odd couple of "I am wrestling" and the ice queen stop the sexiest couple alive, or will Bennett and Maria prove too much for them?
