And so it begins... after one year of strong showings, the Pure Wrestling Alliance has marched its way to the one-year mark.
One whole year of wrestling, one whole year of shit-talking, one whole year of Thunder every Tuesday night.
Legacy marks the premier pay per view event of the Pure Wrestling Alliance, and the celebration of its first major achievement.
All 19 men on the PWA roster will give everything they have; they will put it all on the line to prove their worth, to prove they belong among the elite in wrestling history.
What will their Legacy be?
... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
Card for PWA Legacy
Falls Count Anywhere
The Tutor vs. Mike Hero vs. James Shelley
vs. Jesus Valentine vs. Sweet 'n' Sour
Match Preview: The Tutor has been the Hardcore Champion since January 27 of this year, when he acquired the belt at PWA Over the Top. Since that time, he has refused to bow down to the traditional booking structure.
The Hardcore Championship is the lowest prestige belt on the roster, but with such men as Bangarang and Nelson King being former champions, it has risen in worth; and now Tutor has made sure to make an impact with his first title reign in the PWA.
He's done that by pissing off Kevin Andrews to no avail: contesting official decisions of matches, getting violent with referees, refusing to wrestle -- The Tutor has done it all.
A fitting resume for the Hardcore Champion, and by earning the ire of Andrews he has earned the ire of James Shelley -- PWA's Englishman with a nasty streak of his own who has yet to taste gold. Will that all change tonight? And will it be doubly sweet for Shelley if he pins The Tutor to do it?
Joining him in this five way dance is another man who has recently become an enemy of The Tutor: Mike Hero.
Hero is one of the newest members of the roster, but he earned this shot within the past two weeks by challenging The Tutor at PWA's first Open Fight Night. Though Tutor walked out on the match, Andrews stepped in and booked the fight to happen again the following week, and Hero came out on top.
Mike Hero knows he can beat The Tutor, but can he outlast four other men to have a shot at gold?
Sweet 'n' Sour is another recent worker who knows he can beat The Tutor, having bested both the Hardcore Champ and James Shelley in a triple threat match at Thunder 32.
Sour's impressive debut earned him the quickest title shot in PWA history the following week; but The Tutor escaped with the belt. Now Sour will have a second shot at creating a new history.
And if the debuts of Hero and Sour have not been impressive enough, Jesus Valentine has come on to the scene with something to prove -- and so far he's had no problems, working his way to 3rd place in the OFN Invitational.
Perhaps a month from now we will be talking about Valentine as a potential opponent for the World Title, but tonight, only four weeks out from his inaugural match, Valentine eyes a different prize: the Hardcore Championship.
Five men enter; only one has worn gold before. Will that same one emerge with the title around his waist? Or will a new name etch its legacy on the PWA's burgeoning hardcore scene?
"Prove It" Triple Threat
Muhammad Islami vs. Ryan Trevors vs. KeRo winner receives 50 bonus points in the OFN Invitational
Match Preview: Ryan Trevors has been back-peddling since his strong debut, with a string of losses to Sweet 'n' Sour, including a failed attempt to call him out at Open Fight Night.
Similarly, KeRo has been struggling to stay in the hunt for championship gold. Ever since he was pinned by Tutor at PWA Over the Top, KeRo just has not been the same competitor.
Both men join outspoken, controversial newcomer, Muhammad Islami, near the bottom of the OFN Invitational Standings, meaning they have their work cut out for them if they hope to ascend the rankings and earn a shot at the World Title.
But all three have a chance tonight to erase some of that deficit by emerging victorious on the grandest stage of them all and earning a 50 point boost to their point totals.
Which man can find the fire within to turn their recent luck around and make their first Legacy appearance one to remember?
TLC Ladder Match
Tag Team Championships
Mascara de la Muerte and Little Jiminy Cricket
vs. Jack Young and AG Zero
vs. Nelson King and Bangarang
Match Preview: The Tag Title scene has long been a two man show since Andrews first decided to re-activate the championships. Mascara de la Muerte first began the reign with an impressive one man grasp that included a 1-on-2 defense against James Shelley and Ronnie Shullman that cost Shullman his job.
When Andrews threatened Mascara's belts again, one of the PWA's most lovable members was forced to find a partner. He did so by referring to an old friend and once-rival, Little Jiminy Cricket, and the duo have since ruled over the division and become two of the most popular good guys in wrestling.
But this Sunday, at PWA Legacy, they face their toughest challenge yet, as the tag division has suddenly ignited with an influx of factions all vying to control every belt. The most successful of those factions being The Cataclysm.
Headed by World Champion, Lee Powell, and solidified with former two-time TV Champion, AG Zero, and the rising Jack Young, the three have been a thorn in the side of everyone on the roster and have come close on several occasions to possessing every single belt the PWA has to offer.
Tonight they could take a big step in establishing their own legacy; but they will have to pass through not just the tables, ladders, and chairs in the arena, and not just through the Tag Team Champions, but through the wrestling world's newest faction, as well: Trivolution, who have their eyes set on spoiling everything The Cataclysm hopes to achieve.
While one member of the fledgling force, Dustin Dreamer, prepares to face Lee Powell in our main event; fan-favorite and the first Hardcore Champion, Bangarang, and PWA's most decorated champion, the veteran, Nelson King, will join the TLC match for a chance at gold.
Will Trivolution's pay per view debut get off to a legendary start? Will Nelson King become the PWA's first triple crown champion? Will The Cataclysm inch closer to their goal of complete domination of Kevin Andrews' Thunder program?
Or will the defending Tag Team Champions do the impossible... again!
Triple Threat Match
Dave Martini vs. John Connor vs. Tom Bombadil
Match Preview: While the match before this on the card features veterans across the board, this one features two men who have yet to wear championship gold in a one fall to a finish, triple threat match with the man who very few can claim to have ever beaten: Dave Martini.
Martini's rise to prominence in the PWA was quick -- cementing the longest undefeated streak in history as he marched through the roster; and once he entered the main event, he has remained there.
He represents one of the most consistent threats, and matches that with consistently quality work in the ring. Week in, week out; Martini has graced Thunder audiences with his presence, and though the World Title has as-of-yet alluded him, he has worn the Television Title with a class only he could bring it.
At least, that is what he would tell you. The Cataclysm would disagree. Trivolution would disagree. The Faction would disagree. Martini has made many enemies in his time here, but this Sunday John Connor and Tom Bombadil will need to find a way to do what not too many have done: defeat him.
Going in their favor is the rules of the match that Martini need not be pinned for the belt to change hands. With Bombadil and Connor two rising favorites of the PWA Galaxy S-III, and Martini a common foe; perhaps we see them work together?
But that may be tough to abide. John Connor prefers to work alone and has had his eyes set on establishing himself as a legitimate singles competitor since day one. When on top of his game, he has dominated opponents with relative ease. But will his best be enough come Sunday?
And Tom Bombadil has proven himself to be a valiant wrestler each week. He makes his opponent work for any victory, for any advantage, and he has never looked unworthy, even in defeat.
Both men proved themselves last week by emerging victorious in strong showings over their respective opponents and earning a shot at Martini's gold. But will either of them be able to take that next step into the main event scene? Will they emerge from the midcard to cement a legacy of their own?
Or will Dave Martini instead emerge from another successful title defense as the clear favorite to challenge the World Champion?
Lee Powell vs. Dustin Dreamer
Match Preview: Many have tried. None have succeeded. The list of main event level talent that World Champion Lee Powell has disposed of during his historic 187 day reign is a list that perhaps no PWA World Champion will ever compile again.
Legacy is meant to be the biggest pay per view event of the year, pitting the world's most hated villain against an inspiring, against-all-odds underdog.
Lee Powell vs. Dustin Dreamer is just that.
Though Dreamer himself may disagree with the analogy, the main event of PWA Legacy is David verse Goliath. It's "The Streak" verse the man who overcame the odds at Over the Top to earn his chance at glory.
Which force will emerge victorious? Will Lee Powell begin year two of the Pure Wrestling Alliance just as he ended year one: its champion? Or will Dustin Dreamer achieve his dream of becoming the best in the world on the biggest night of the year?
What legacy will these two warriors leave behind?

It's now. The time is now. Metlife Stadium, the venue of our legacy. The legacy of what our hard work amounts to. The legacy of what our passion, our blood, our sweat, our tears, all lead towards. How will we be remembered? Will we be remembered as the guy who always fought well, but never got the job done when it mattered? Will we be remembered as the guy who was one hell of a challenge to defeat? Will we be remembered as someone who was worthy, and wasn't just here for the money? Time will tell, but I can assure that tonight, I, John Connor, will attain my dream of salvation, and fulfill my need for recognition by capturing the Television Championship. Tom Bombadil, I mean you no offence, but you mount no challenge to me. You're merely a miniscule obstacle to main target, and that is Dave Martini. Dave Martini, 2 weeks ago on Open Fight Night, you showed nothing but utter contempt and disrespect when I was being noble and humble. You ran your mouth right into a huge problem. That night I decided I wanted your title, to teach you a lesson, and beat some respect into you. Once the dust settles, and the bell has rung, Dave Martini you'll be looking up at the New York sky, wondering just what the hell happened, and usher in an era of your need for self-evaluation, shaken, not stirred.

Then, I am a part of PWA's greatest tag team in history. And on top of all that, I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. And after tonight, nobody will have any doubts about my legacy.

Lacy: Ladies and gentlemen, your World Heavyweight Champion; Lee Powell.
Lacy: Lee, the last couple of weeks we barely saw you on Thunder, and in last weeks 3v3 tag team match, you were barely in action. Why was that?
LP: Really? Really? You have a chance to interview the main event of Legacy, the guy who will steal the show, the guy who has been champion for how many days was it agian?
Lacy: 187 days, but ...
LP: That's right, 187 days! And that's the first question you ask? Next question!
Lacy: Uh, ... Ok. How do you plan on defeating Dreamer?
LP: I'm going to pin him. You know, 1 2 3. Or maybe I'll give the audience a show and put him in the Anaconda vice to make him tap out.
Lacy: I think it's going to be a little harder ...
LP: Seriously? Thanks for sharing you opinion, which is by the way quite irrelevant. It IS that simple. This belt means I'm the best what this company has to offer, and I have been that since october 1st, 2012. Since that day I have beaten men like King, Cricket, Mascara or Dave Martini. All guys who proved themselves in this company, all guys who have what it takes to take this belt away from me, but who weren't good enough on the day. All these guys are future Hall of Famers, while Dreamer ... Well Dreamer is just a footnote. After tonight, he'll go back were he belongs and I'll be looking forward to our next PPV, where hopefully I'll find a better opponent. Does that answer your question?
Lacy: Alright final question; any words for the thousands in attendance?
LP: Yes. Fuck you.
LEE POWELL "He's better than you and you know it ..."
