Official Press Release – February 24 th , 2008 “Gauntlet for the Gold 3”
STEVE CORINO RELINQUISHES ABSOLUTE TITLE
As of January 1 st , 2008 Steve Corino's contractual obligation to Absolute Intense Entertainment, LLC was over. Steve has since retired from professional wrestling and has done everything in his power to defend the title. Due to canceled flights both in October and December Steve was unable to make it to the shows and has now relinquished his title.
GAUNTLET WINNER IS ABSOLUTE CHAMPION
With the title being vacant AIW Owner Chandler Biggins has now signed the Gauntlet for the Gold match featuring 30 men in a royal rumble style battle royal where the winner becomes the next Absolute Champion.
SJK & DIOS SQUARE OFF AGAIN
In October Dios Salvador and Sterling James Keenan competed in a number one contender's match where the match ended in a draw. With both being the number one contender and the title being vacant, Chandler Biggins has signed a match between the two at Gauntlet for the Gold where the winner of the match is the 30 th entrant into the Gauntlet for the Gold match.
GARGANO GETS A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE
On December 16 th , 2007 at “The Nightmare before X-Mass” Johnny Gargano revealed himself to be responsible for the “Can You Break the Code” campaign that was featured on a MySpace profile. Gargano returned to Absolute Intense Wrestling and quickly challenged Intense Division champion Tyler Black to a match for the title. Gargano did not get the immediate shot at the title and had to face off against Tyler's friend Shane Hollister. Black still hasn't agreed to a matchup but is giving Gargano a taste of his own medicine by selecting a mystery opponent at Gauntlet for the Gold 3. The only way Black will accept a match with Gargano is if Johnny can defeat Black's handpicked opponent.
NECROBUTCHER RETURNS FOR REVENGE
At Hell on Earth 3 back in October of 2007 we saw Drake Younger team up with “The Passion” John Thorne at the end of the match and join Revelation 13. Drake then gave Necro a Death Valley Driver off the ring apron through a table to the floor to Necrobutcher. The fans along with Necro have demanded a return and Biggins has signed the deal. Necrobutcher returns on February 24 th at Gauntlet for the Gold 3 to take on “The Passion” John Thorne one on one in a hardcore revenge match! If you thought the 3 way dance at Hell on Earth 3 was brutal both men have vowed to hurt each other in ways that are indescribable.
