Here is your official preview for Alternative Pro Wrestling tonight at the Royston Gym in Royston, GA. Bell time is 8:15pm. Bo Newsom continues to chip away at Southern States Champion, JT Talent. Week by week the rookie has been on Talent's tail like white on rice. And the usually over-confident, Talent has been on a path of destruction as of late just because of Newsom. He's attacked the owner of APW, and left a trail of controversial finishes to his title matches in his long reign as champion. Is he cracking under the pressure? We will see this week when both Talent and the "Official" Jacob Ashworth take on Newsom in a handicapped match. Interim Commish, Shadow Jackson has promised the people that he will be in Royston Friday night to keep an eye on JT Talent. Seth Delay has had enough of the "son of satan" Azrael. Christy Turner has had enough of Azrael's valet LLoth. With that being said, APW's first inter-gender tag team match should be a good one. Chris Mayne and Kevin Duncan will be guests on the "Talent Show." "Merciless" Don Matthews battles Slim J in the main event. (Larry Goodman)
