PWS News: Lance Storm’s Travel Problems, Supercard 2013 Lineup and More
– This past weekend was a hard one for Pro Wrestling Syndicate thanks to winter storm Nemo in the Northeast. The promotion held their latest live events in Metuchen, New Jersey, which was headlined by Lance Storm vs Jerry Lynn, as part of Lynn’s retirement tour.
– During the weekend, the promotion rebooked flights for many of their talents, only losing three in the process (Micah, Tracy Taylor and Demo, who was going to be in the Suicidal Six Way). They rebooked La Rosa Negra, Awesome Kong, Becky Bayless, Lance Storm and Katarina Leigh, among others. The promotion took on all of the expenses to avoid false advertisement, which included a large fee from Storm.
Storm left Calgary on 5 AM Friday and went to Toronto, where he was snowbound overnight. He missed a training seminar that was eventually canceled. He tried to fly out through Air Canada Saturday morning and spent several hours in line trying to find out about his flight. PWS spent another $1000 to get Storm on another flight out of another Toronto airport. He was then stuck for four more hours waiting for that flight and arrived at 6:30 PM on Saturday, just a few hours before the main event. The match ran 15-20 minutes. After it was over, Storm said it may be his last match as well, and after the travel experience, he may never leave his house again. You can watch the iPPV replay at Highspots.com.
– The official attendance was 213 for the Bombshell Ladies of Wrestling event and 855 for the “Thank You Jerry” iPPV.
– Nikki Nitro, who lost to Star Man at the event, is headed to Florida to train at Team 3D Academy.
– Shelly Martinez celebrated her birthday at the events.
– PWS will be back on Wrestlemania weekend with Supercard 2013 on April 4 and 5.
