James Readies to Face Austin Aries

By: Mitchell Frantz

Evander James has gone through a lot as PPW Heavyweight Champion. The impressive list of names he has taken down in his championship reign just keeps growing, but he will have his biggest challenge to date come September 21st against Austin Aries.

Aries is a 19 year veteran in the wrestling industry who is known most notably for his time in Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor. Between those two promotions, Aries held 14 total championships. Most notable of those include being a 3-time Impact World Champion and the first ever 2-time Ring of Honor World Champion. Aries also has the distinction of being the longest reigning Impact X Division Champion in company history, a championship he has won a total of 6 times.

Not to be outdone, the reigning PPW Heavyweight Champion Evander James has already knocked off an impressive amount of opponents since he won the gold in April. Those men include wrestling legend 2 Cold Scorpio, former WWE Cruiserweight Classic competitors Sean Maluta and TJP, Facade, Samuel Adams, and Desean Pratt.

Will Evander James add another major name to his list of successful championship defenses? Or will Austin Aries end the long reign of "The Man you can Trust"?

Find out on Saturday, September 21st when PPW presents its 6th Anniversary Show! Appearing live alongside these two men will be former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir, former WWE stars Enzo Amore, Big Cass, and Rhyno, and former Impact star Madison Rayne! Tickets and specials are available now at!
