WORLD-1 Champion Chris Rockwell (PWI # 434) discusses the 3rd annual
Hashimoto legacy cup for WORLD-1 wrestling and introduces an “invested
interest” in the tournament.:

New WORLD-1 Womens Champion! Danger Reigns Supreme,

Symbol Helps???

This past Sunday in Carteret, North Carolina, Allison Danger defeated
Roxie Cotton to become the 6th Pro-Wrestling WORLD-1 Womens champion.

But it was the presence of Chris Rockwell that was shocking,
considering he was not even scheduled for the event. And with Rockwell
cohorts Team Symbol in a war with Colby and Steve Corino, it was
interesting to most W-1 fans why he would help Steve’s sister.

“A win is a win is a win, right big brother.” said the new champion,
Allison Danger, when asked what her brother would think of her tactics
during the match. “Don’t believe this crap that he is all goody two
shoes. Colby, yes. He’s a good kid but my brother would cut the throat
of anyone if it meant winning a title.”

Steve Corino, who will team with Colby Corino and Roxie Cotton on
September 12 in Jackson, NJ, would not comment.

The former champion Roxie Cotton was down about the loss but said she
will fight back. “I gave Danger two chances but all I need is one.
Come on back to Jersey and be a fighting champion.”

President Kehner said that he was OK with the title change due to the
fact that Rockwell did not physically get involved with the contest
but warned that Rockwell and every member of Team Symbol is being

Allison Danger is the first two-time champion and 6th overall. Below

5. WORLD-1 Womens title, V4 defense: Allison Danger (Shimmer) beats
Roxie Cotton (W-1) after The Shimmering Warlock in 14:32 to become the
6th champion.


The ever-cocky, but dominating, WORLD-1 heavyweight champion Chris
Rockwell is on a roll. Although fans hate when he tells him that 2010
was “The Rise Of Rockwell”, no truer words can be said.

In January he utterly destroyed the former Beast, Ozzie Canada, in
less then two minutes to win the W-1 heavyweight title. Never before
has a title changed so quick in WORLD-1. But over the course of six
months, what was considered a possible fluke has produced the best
WORLD-1 champion of all time.

“That’s right morons.” said the 5th W-1 champion since 2004, “Tanaka
has been challenged but yet to accept. I know he speaks English.
Coward is a word he understand. Then Landell? I don’t even know who
that is. Corino? Oh I’ll get to him. And The Beast? I ran through that
fat turd quicker then the burger he just ate. I am the best WORLD-1
champion of all time.”

When’s Curt Lemon asked Rockwell to elaborate on
Steve Corino and the champion hit the roof!

“He sucks. He’s fat and he’s old. I kicked the dog crap out of his
punk kid and now he thinks he is next in line for a shot? I don’t
think so. Corino is only pretending to like the cheer of the fans. He
is a low down, dirty, egg-sucking, liar. He hates the fans. Hates them
more I do. Don’t cheer for him. Cheer for a true hero. The guy that
leads Pro-Wrestling WORLD-1 with dignity. Me. Chris Rockwell.”

And he wasn’t done!

“You know, the WORLD-1 fans are stupid. They are. They should be
cheering for their champion. What do I have to do to prove to you
people that I am the King of this castle? I know. I need to be both
the W-1 champion AND tag team champion. Here is a challenge to the mom
and daughter team of the Corino’s. Defend the W-1 tag team titles on
September 12. I will bring a partner of my choosing. In fact the new
member of Symbol will be revealed. Denver Street, the evil genius that
he is, and I found our guy. Defend those belts cowards.” caught Colby Corino on his Twitter @CCorino and asked
him if the challenge was accepted.

“Yes it has Curt. Pres Kehner gave us the go ahead today. We will win!”

The Corino’s vs. Rockwell & A Mystery Partner for the W-1 tag team

WORLD-1 North American champion Adam Cole sets his sights on the Hashimoto cup:

During a Online World of Wrestling Radio interview WORLD-1 Tag Team
champion, Mr Wrestling Steve Corino was once again the victim of a
verbal attack courtesy of the WORLD-1 champion Chris Rockwell.

Those close to the situation say that Rockwell has developed an
obsession with Corino, and plans on taking the W1 Tag team titles from
Steve and his son Colby on September 12th in Jackson NJ.
