Pocono Slam Fest/New Beginnings
January 15th, 2022 | Signature Training Academy | Brodheadsville, PA
On Saturday, January 15th, PPW hosted its first ever convention, the Pocono Slam Fest. Plenty of stars made their way to Brodheadsville to meet the PPW Nation, including Kurt Angle, Bob Backlund, Mercedes Martinez, Doc Gallows, Deonna Purrazzo, Santana Garrett, Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis-Bennett, Alexander Hammerstone, Richard Holliday, The Sandman, Jimmy Hart, Maven, Snitsky, Veda Scott, Tasha Steelz, Afa Jr. and KC Navarro.
Some of those stars stuck around for PPW New Beginnings, and the event was undoubtedly off the charts entertaining and a great way to kick off 2022.
KC Navarro and Mike Bennett more than delivered in the main event, with Bennett picking up the hard-fought victory. Afa Jr. had a surprise partner in Doc Gallows help him beat team Ruda. We also saw the crowning of a new champion, as Dani Mo defeated Adena Steele to win the PPW Women's Championship.
Elsewhere, Breaux Keller, Foxx Vinyer and Rembrandt retained the PPW Heavyweight, Television and No Limits Championships, respectively, Deonna Purrazzo defeated Santana Garrett and MLW World Champion Alexander Hammerstone defeated Mike Orlando.
