on 4/20 to quote drowning pool "something has got to give"


by B.P. Burke

There’s no such thing as an easy night when you’re the PPW Heavyweight Champion. With over 200 days as champion under his belt, it’s a fact Adrien Soriano knows well.

But the Super Fresh Superstar sitting atop the mountain now seems undaunted by the pressure, to the point that he and his brothers in arms in Primal Fear, Gabriel Hodder & Matthew Omen have added trios gold to their many accolades. And while The Sindicate waits in the wings for their rematch, Soriano now finds himself having to pull Double Duty on April 20th, where he’ll find a trio of another sort: three challengers all ready, willing, and able to become the brand new PPW Heavyweight Champion.


With few PPW matches under his belt, some may question whether it’s too early for “Dive Bomb” Diego Hill to vie for championship gold. Chances are, those questioning Hill’s placement in Saturday’s main event have yet to see him in action.

Wrestling fans in North Carolina have been well aware of Hill’s talents, and now that he has been expanding his reach into Pennsylvania, it’s only a matter of time before the gifted star really makes his presence felt. Hill impressed everyone in a great win over Mark Alexander at Born to Run, with Alexander putting up a remarkable fight in place of an injured Facade, but Hill is still eager to test himself against the best of the best, and looks to do so in the biggest spot possible: the main event of the biggest show of the year.

And if you think that the moment is too big for Diego Hill, think again. While making his name in the Tar Heel State, Hill has shared the ring with a laundry list of major stars, including new NXT star Je’Von Evans, and stars who are no stranger to PPW like Lince Dorado and Action Andretti.


PPW Nation was overjoyed by Nolan Pierce’s Walk the Line victory over Dio Bando, but prior to that, “The Neckbreak Kid” strung together a series of victories as impressive as any anyone in PPW over the past 12 months - a resume deemed impressive enough to ensure the confident young star’s inclusion in SuperShow IV’s Main Event.

And while Bando’s underhanded tactics and brash approach have earned him little love from the Slatington crowd, no one in their right mind can argue against Bando’s talent. He may enter SuperShow IV as an underdog, but Bando arguably has the highest upside not just in this match, but in PPW as a whole.

What remains to be seen is if he can follow up and is ready for "Prime-Time"


With all due respect to Bando, Hill, and the reigning champion, “The Neon Ninja” is very rarely an underdog. Facade has faced the best and brightest to ever walk through PPW’s doors, and has emerged victorious more often than not. Moreover, he’s formed a bond with PPW Nation that is second to none, and it’ll be incredibly interesting to see the crowd’s reaction when he and Soriano square off.

But is Facade’s go-for-it-all style and outright refusal to ever back down from a challenge catching up with him? A minor knee injury kept him out of action at Born to Run, and while he has returned to action and is ready to go at SuperShow IV, a wrestler with a fighting spirit as strong as The Neon Ninja’s never walks into a match at 100%

Four talents all capable of walking out the PPW Heavyweight Champion collide at SuperShow IV. The speculation will soon be over.

The big question is this: will Adrien Soriano’s time as PPW Heavyweight Champion be over as well?
