HISTORY

The first time these gentlemen met inside the PWA ring was Bogard's debut match at Chaotic Rampage, when Bogard tossed Gay over the top rope to win a battle royal.

Both men strive for greatness every time they step into the ring, and both men look to faith to help them achieve the impossible. In this match to decide the number one contender to the Intercontinental Championship, whose faith will be stronger?

DING DING!

"The following match is scheduled for one pinfall or submission and will determine the number one contender for the PWA Intercontinental Championship! Introducing first, hailing from San Mateo, California...."

The lights suddenly dim down as the opening intro to "Trouble Man" pick ups and smoke emerges from near the entrance way.

Gonna be trouble
It's gettin' out of hand
Gonna be trouble
But baby, I'm the man

I'm gonna save you
I'll be your knight
I'll be your saviour
How 'bout tonight? YEAH!


Cody makes his way over to the ring, springing up to the ring apron, climbing the turnbuckle and posing with his arms open in a pose.

Eric Emerson: "He stands 5'11" and weighs in tonight at 210 pounds... he is a former PWA Television Champion... CODY BOGARD!"

Gonna be trouble
Baby, I'm the trouble man
Want a fighter? Come on--
But don't you understand?
I can't be double
Baby, I'm the trouble man


Cody jumps from the turnbuckle as he slowly raises his hand over his head, grabbing hold of the towel and quickly swiping it off, revealing the new 2nd stage mask.
