1PW: Newsline For Oct.11th

1PW Newsline October 11th 2005

Fresh off the success of its critically acclaimed inaugural event, A CRUEL TWIST OF FATE, 1PW is hard at work preparing for its huge weekend of shows at the Doncaster Dome in January 2006 because for 1PW there’s NO TURNING BACK.

The NO TURNING BACK weekend will include two huge events on the evening of Friday January 6th ( at 7pm ) and Saturday January 7th ( at 7pm ) , in addition to a vastly expanded and improved 1PW Fan Slam, that will feature Q & A sessions with the 1PW stars, along with picture and autograph opportunities.

Huge names already added to the roster include former ECW World champion MASATO TANAKA, ROH/TNA star SAMOA JOE, former World Tag Team champion CHARLIE HAAS, former TNA Tag and X Division champion “The Fallen Angel” CHRISTOPHER DANIELS and the
“Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal Maniac” himself, SABU!

More exciting signings and new names will be announced over the coming weeks.

In addition, we can already announce the names of several people returning including “The Phenomenal One” AJ STYLES, “The Monster” ABYSS, STERLING JAMES KEENAN, “The Anarchist” DOUG WILLIAMS and AWA World champion STEVE CORINO.

Also, just today 1PW signed the menacing and ultra tough LOW KI to compete at No Turning Back.

Also returning are TRACY SMOTHERS and the BLUE MEANIE, who have unfinished business after A CRUEL TWIST OF FATE. 1PW officials have promised both men a chance to settle their score over the NO TURNING BACK weekend.

The focus of the weekend, however, will be a series of 8 Qualifying Matches (4 each night) for entry into March’s 1PW World title tournament. Plans are already afoot to send the title on tour to Canada, the United States and Japan and across Europe, but the question remains: who will be the first-ever 1PW World champion? Join us at The Dome in Doncaster this coming January to see 16 warriors begin the grueling journey towards this ultimate prize.

1PW’s inaugural event, A CRUEL TWIST OF FATE, comes to DVD in an exciting two disc set that includes the entire supershow plus highlights of the hilarious Q&A sessions with the 1PW roster and much, much more. Thrill to the hardcore action as RAVEN takes on SANDMAN only to be attacked by “The Innovator of Violence” himself, TOMMY DREAMER. STEVE CORINO defends his AWA World title against AL SNOW. Experience the strong-style brutality when LOW-KI faces off against Britain’s own ICEMAN. And in the evening’s stellar main event, “The Monster” ABYSS and “The Phenomenal One” AJ STYLES go one-on-one with personal glory on the line.

The event also includes Jerry Lynn and Chris Sabin vs Jonny Storm and Jody

action and even more!

Also available for pre-sale is the first in 1PW’s Interrogation Series, an exciting new line of shoot interviews with members of the 1PW roster. The series, hosted by 1PW color commentator Anthony Kingdom James, starts off on a high note with a full three-hour interview with current AWA World Heavyweight champion STEVE CORINO, which was taped in Doncaster the night before A Cruel Twist of Fate. Join the “King of Old School” as he discusses his beginnings in Canada and his childhood move to the US, how he became involved in professional wrestling and his time with ECW, life in Japan after ECW folded and the resurgence of the AWA title.

Corino dispels myths and rumors that have never been addressed before and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER reveals a secret about his career that he has kept for a full decade! The DVD also includes highlights of his AWA title defense from ACTOF vs AL SNOW and, as a special bonus, the full video of his recent title defense against CHRIS HAMRICK which features color commentary by the champion’s 8 year old son, COLBY CORINO and AJ STYLES.

Both DVDs are available for pre-sale today at, or via the 1 UP Games Hotline on 0870 2242992. These DVD’s will also be available to purchase in the Unites States via ROH, and Replica Wrestling Belts.
