Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Jeff Hardy’s court hearing on charges of Drug Trafficking has been extended to December 2nd, at which time the court will decide whether or not there is enough evidence against Hardy to have the case tried in front of a grand jury.

PWO has issued the following press release:

PWO STAR “M-DOGG 20” MATT CROSS TO APPEAR AT THIS MONTH’S “HULKAMANIA” AUSTRALIA TOUR

"M-Dogg 20" Matt Cross is quite simply “The Innovator of Aerial Insanity”. Through his natural athleticism, and skills learned from being an AAU Junior Olympic Gymnastics Champion in his youth, Cross has crafted a unique style next to impossible to replicate or recreate. Cross’ breathtaking performances, chiseled physique, and one-of-a-kind charisma have led to him becoming one of the most well-traveled athletes in all of professional wrestling today, including stops in Japan for Pro Wrestling NOAH, Europe for NWE, and everywhere from Hawaii to Egypt along the way. Through all the chaos, M-Dogg also remains one of the elite stars of Pro Wrestling Ohio, airing Sunday nights at 10:00 on Sports Time Ohio (official television network of MLB’s Cleveland Indians) throughout much of the Unites States, where he became the first-ever PWO Champion in the summer of 2008, and has waged wars with the region’s best ever since.

Now, M-Dogg’s international career hits a new plateau with the official signing of M-Dogg 20 Matt Cross for the upcoming Australian “Hulkamania” tour headlined by, who else, “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan. Hogan has quickly once again become the most talked-about name in professional wrestling due to his recent signing with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, but before he returns to US soil, Hogan intends to make major waves throughout Australia. The tour is headlined by a match featuring arguably the two most iconic figures in the sport’s history as Hogan goes one-on-one with 16-time World Champion “Nature Boy” Ric Flair in Flair’s first official match since his retirement at WrestleMania 24.

The entire card for the tour is stacked top-to-bottom with other names such as PWO alumnus Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, The Nasty Boys, Paul London, Lacey Von Erich, and the men formerly known as Mr. Kennedy, Rikishi, Umaga, Val Venis, and many others, and PWO is proud to see one of its own join such a star-studded line-up.

Pro Wrestling Ohio wishes all the best to Matt Cross as he spends the latter-half of November down under, proudly representing PWO with some of professional wrestling’s all time greats!
