AAPW Presents: Zero Hour

Zero Hour is coming October 20

Once again, I have to say how proud I am to be a part of All American Pro Wrestling.  AAPW is preparing for its 6th anniversary and the front office has been working hard to put on one heck of a celebration.  Since 2008, the anniversary show has also had the distinction of being a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.  Money raised from tickets, concessions, and several silent auctions and raffles will be given to the charity.

From top to bottom "Zero Hour" is stacked.  This will no doubt be the biggest anniversary show in company history and will no doubt be the best show we've ever done.  Like "Main Event" and "Summer Chaos", "Zero Hour" will be a DVD exclusive.

Mike Masters takes on Edmund "Livewire" McGuire
AAPW champion Mike Masters won the title in controversial fashion at "Summer Chaos", now he defends the title against former champ Edmund "Livewire" McGuire in AAPW's first ever steel cage match.  There is more than just the championship on the line.  There's a lot of raw emotion involved in this match, from Masters stalking Edmund and his young son, to the menacing words he's used against the father and son on social media.  Factor in the volatile nature of their contract signing, this will be nothing less than war.

Climbing to new heights
Team Overkill vs. Brandon Espinosa & Ace Hawkins
In another highly anticipated grudge match, Team Overkill will defend their tag team titles in a ladder match.  Brandon Espinosa and Ace Hawkins have been screwed out of the titles the last couple of times they've competed.  Espy recently won a match against Christian Rose to determine the type of match at Zero Hour.  Since Rose and his partner Matt Cage have used the belts as weapons in recent defenses, Espy and Ace decided to take the match to new heights.

"Boom Boom" returns to AAPW to team with Hatton
Gaylord steps into the ring
"Boom Boom" Colt Cabana makes his AAPW return.  Back in January, Cabana was on the losing end to "3G" Eric Wayne.  This time, he teams up with AAPW hero Heath Hatton to take on the "Old School Warrior" Ax Allwardt and his manager Gaylord Stephens. That's write, the Prince of Polyster will step into the ring against these two great stars.  Hatton has been robbed out of two title opportunities thanks to Stephens, Allwardt, and newcomer J. Wellington Beauregard.  First Ax smashed Heath with a chain helping Masters retain his title.  Then Beauregard and Stephens caused a distraction and helped Adam Pearce pin Heath in their NWA World's Heavyweight title match.

The Reward is in the Risk
KC Jackson takes on Joey O'Riley
"The Main Attraction" KC Jackson has ventured into the singles ranks and is doing quite well for himself as he prepares to take on Joey O'Riley in the finals of the newly established "No Limits Division."  I'm excited about this because the first ever NLD champion will be crowned on the 20th.  Both men have been strong in the tournament.  KC added some momentum by beating Joey and two other No Limits stars, Jay Spade and Sean Vincent in a fatal four way at "Summer Chaos."  Regardless of who wins this one, I'm glad to see guys in a cruise weight category getting to show the fans what they can do together.

Worlds collide
Ultimate battle of the big men
The immovable force meets the irresistible object in the ultimate battle of the big men.  The undefeated Bull Bronson (weighing in at 375 pounds) takes on his biggest challenge in AAPW, and maybe of all time in the Mississippi Madman.  Madman is a former AAPW heavyweight champion and co holder of the tag team titles.  Oh yeah, and he weighs in at more than 450 pounds.  But will he be able to end the streak of Bull?  Should be an interesting contest to say the least.

Will lady luck help Alex Castle?
Kyle Sykes is an up-and-comer in AAPW and he'll meet a relative newcomer to the company, Alex Castle.  When Castle has his good luck charm Angelus Layne by his side, he's been unstoppable.  Can the rising star overcome "the Monster" Castle and his beautiful valet?  We'll find out.

Past meets present in the anniversary Battle Royal
There's also an Anniversary Battle Royal planned for the evening. Ten men will compete in this Royal Rumble style matchup.  You'll see favorites like Chocolate Thunder, "Farmer" Billy Hills, and Justice.  The powerhouse Truk Thompson and the Convoy will also be in the battle royal.  So who will be the four remaining entrants?  We do know a philanthropist has secured a couple of those spots, so no telling who will enter this event.  Be at the show on the 20th and find out.

We'll also find out what the future holds for former AAPW champion "Serial Thriller" Shane Rich.  We hope to see you there.  Get your tickets by clicking here.
