Resistance Pro Wrestling has always had a buzz about them but that buzz has been even bigger with the announcement that AMC is picking up a reality show based around the company. This can only mean more exposure to the company's already great wrestling product. Since its inception, RPro has always prided itself on what great talent they have and that talent pool as grown to feature some of the best independent wrestlers in the United States. The company returns to the Arabian Knights Barn in Willowbrook, IL this Friday night with Deliverance.
Last month new tag champions were crowned when the unlikely duo of RPro heavyweight champion, Jocephus, and The Ego Robert Anthony defeated Da Soul Touchaz. Ego was a reluctant participant in this match as he had lost the heavyweight title to Jocephus a few months prior and wasn't taking the loss too well. Ego shocked the audience at the end of the last show when he swore allegiance to Jocephus and said that he understands that Jocephus is indeed, "the way".
Deliverance also features the return of "Lonesome Jay Bradley" who was one of RPro's top stars before leaving for a brief stint in TNA. Bradley's return will likely shake things up on the roster and opens the door up for even more fantastic matches.
So far the lineup for Deliverance is as follows:
RESISTANCE Pro Heavyweight Championship Match
MR. 450 vs. JOCEPHUS (w/EVE) (c)
