CAPW Jr. Heavyweight Title: Super Hentai vs. Shark Boy vs. The Aftermath
When Super Hentai captured the CAPW Junior Heavyweight Title earlier this year, he began a crusade. A crusade to bring honor, prestige, and respect to a championship that truly deserved it. A championship that had once been held captive by egomaniacs like the Johnny Garganos of the world, was now free to be represented by a man who is a champion in every sense of the word, both in and out of the wrestling ring. On August 5, Hentai attempts to continue to build the legacy of both himself and the title he holds, against two very different opponents. One, The Aftermath, is still at the beginning of his career, still trying to earn a name for himself, and can do so overnight by defeating someone with the worldwide experience of Hentai. Also, there is the individual from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” Shark Boy. One of the most unique and fun-filled athletes anywhere in the world today, however in Hentai’s eyes, Shark Boy lacks the true serious qualities that a champion should represent. Hentai will be fighting for what he believes in, what he believes a champion should be, but can this champions survive two hungry challengers, one possessing the lethal bite of a shark?

Grudge Match: “Dogfaced Gremlin” Rick Steiner vs. Buff Bagwell
The careers of these two legendary tag team grapplers have intertwined several times over the years, most frequently and notably in World Championship Wrestling. It was while in WCW in early-1998, that these men would cross paths in a moment that would change each of their lives forever. While attempting one of his trademark bulldog headlock takedowns, Steiner inadvertently injured Bagwell, breaking the then-NWO member’s neck in the process. It was a moment that would not soon be forgotten, and would ultimately tear apart both the Steiner and Bagwell family at its very seams before it was all said and done. However, old grudges die hard, and on August 5, it’s the match over 9 years in the making as Bagwell goes face-to-face with the man who changed his life forever, and Steiner goes face-to-face with the man responsible for turning Rick’s brother against him. What will happen when old wounds are reopened and these men face each other inside the squared circle one more time?

Aerial Insanity: Too Cold Scorpio vs. “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross
Throughout the 1990s, Too Cold Scorpio raised the bar in high-flying wrestling, showcasing feats of phenomenal athleticism never before seen in U.S. wrestling. First with WCW, then ECW, then as Flash Funk in the World Wrestling Federation, Scorpio carved a reputation as a true trendsetter in risk-taking. However, in this decade, one man may have surpassed him. “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross has, in many instances, attempted to raise the bar even further. When M-Dogg is called “The Innovator of Aerial Insanity” it’s not simply a clever marketing phrase, its fact. M-Dogg not only utilizes, but perfects, countless high-risk moves, including being the first U.S. competitor to popularize the Space Flying M-Dogg Drop as well as Death From Above. On August 5, two of the most innovative fliers in wrestling history wage aerial warfare against one another in what is sure to be a breathtaking show-stealing spectacle.

Open Challenge: Hardcore Rules: Jessica Havok vs. Luna Vachon
Jessica Havok is the most intimidating female presence to ever step foot into a CAPW ring. Since signing on as JT Lightning’s personal bodyguard, Jessica has earned her keep by annihilating every opponent, both male and female, that has been put in her path. Havok has made it a habit to dispose of one, two, or sometimes up to four different opponents in the same night. It is clear no woman on CAPW’s regular roster can pose a challenge to Jessica Havok, but on Sunday August 5 she’ll be opposed by someone not like anyone on CAPW’s active roster: Luna Vachon. One needs only to look at the menacing snear and grating voice of Luna to know how dangerous she can become. And anyone who questions her toughness need only look at her legendary family of aunts and uncles (Maurice “Mad Dog” Vachon, Paul “Butcher” Vachon, and Vivian Vachon) to know she has been bred for success from a very young age. On August 5, Luna brings her wild unpredictable style rarely if ever seen in women’s professional wrestling today, and she also brings Hardcore Rules. No disqualifications, anything goes. Will Jessica Havok be able to withstand one of wrestling’s wildest women, or has the master of the “Open Challenge” finally met her match?

“Wildfire” Tommy Rich vs. Chris Cronus
Tommy Rich has been a major player in professional wrestling for well over 25 years. Another athlete who was wise beyond his years, Rich’s fiery demeanor and textbook wrestling technique propelled Rich to early and major success. Rich became the youngest ever NWA World Heavyweight Champion, defeating Harley Race in April of 1981, and went on to capture several other national and regional championships throughout his career. Rich, a southern boy born and bred through his entire career, experienced an unlikely career resurgence in ECW in the late-90s as the leader of the “Full Blooded Italians”. Known as “The Big Don”, his Italian heritage was always highly in question, but his toughness never was, regularly surviving wars with everyone from The Blue Meanie to New Jack. Now, Wildfire makes his way to CAPW to battle Chris Cronus, someone who much like Rich, has achieved major success at a very young age. It’s the old guard vs. the new guard August 5th when Cronus meets Tommy Rich.

Dominic Denucci vs. Lord Zoltan
Without question, one of the most timeless competitors in wrestling history is the legendary Dominic Denucci. Despite several decades of competition in the sport, Denucci is still as tough and fearless as he ever was. This former WWWF Tag Team Champion is not only a well respected wrestler, but an accomplished trainer as well. Denucci trained multiple-time World Champions Mick Foley and “The Franchise” Shane Douglas in the mid-1980s, running them through rigorous training routines that would instill a work ethic and pain threshold in them evident for years to come. Denucci’s opponent on August 5 is another timeless athlete, someone who’s had consistent regional success throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and beyond for over 30 years, the one and only Lord Zoltan. The bizarre Zoltan has been in the ring with virtually every top star of wrestling’s past and present, including a memorable run-in with The Honky Tonk Man in CAPW earlier this year. Two timeless veterans respected over the entire region and beyond will do battle on August 5.
