Mike Orlando has been arguably the face of PPW ever since his debut against Ryback in 2017.
"The Green Machine" has been a multiple time PPW Heavyweight Champion and has defeated some of the biggest names from around the world, including Jack Swagger, Jerry Lawler, Chris Masters and Nick Aldis, just to name a few.
Orlando will have to climb over a major hurdle if he plans on regaining his championship and reaching the summit of PPW once more. That hurdle is none other than "Buzzkiller" Pat Buck.
Pat Buck is the owner of WrestlePro in New Jersey, as well as a former WWE developmental talent. While in WWE’s developmental system, he was a former OVW Tag Team Champion alongside Rob Conway. Buck is also a former Tag Team Champion in WrestlePro alongside Ryback. He is additionally the head trainer for WrestlePro’s Create A Pro wrestling school.
With a highly reputable background, and 16 years of experience to fall back on, the New York City native will not be an easy opponent for "The Green Machine" to deal with.
Will Orlando be able to get a statement victory over Buck? Or will the "Buzzkiller" make a major statement in his debut with a win over the most decorated man in PPW history?
