Six-Man Tag-Team Match

The Classic Connection
“Unorthodox Jew” Levi Shapiro, “Shooter” Dominick Simon & “The Ace” Buddy Royal
2013 Vendetta Pro Fan Favorite of the Year
Ricky Ruffin

Two Mystery Partners

The Classic Connection–the team of Levi Shapiro and Buddy Royal–appeared on the scene last year at Vendetta Pro Wrestling Underground events held at the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Kayfabe College. While preparing to appear on major events, Shapiro was sidelined with a broken arm. Having just recently made his return, Shapiro and Royal have wasted no time, quickly picking up an upset victory over APW legend Boyce LeGrande and ECW original Mustafa Saed to claim the APW Tag-Team Championship. Meanwhile, Dominick Simon has joined the mix, teaming up with Royal to pick up another upset victory over top California star “Mr. Prime Time” MPT and Vendetta Pro Triple Crown winner Rik Luxury to claim the PCW Tag-Team titles for Pro Championship Wrestling in Oroville, California.
Now, with their sights set on Vendetta Pro, The Classic Connection made the challenge to Ricky Ruffin–Vendetta Pro’s Fan Favorite of the Year 2013. Ruffin has reportedly signed two partners to join him, but who? Find out at April Cruels Day!

Singles Match

“The Butcher
Tyler Bateman
Vendetta Pro Underground Champion

“The Freak”

Vendetta Pro prides itself in presenting hard-hitting, high-flying and exciting Professional Wrestling. This Non-Title affair should satisfy fans of the hard-hitting style as “The Butcher” Tyler Bateman will take on the new Vendetta Pro Underground Champion, Jeckles. “The Freak” recently defeated Ricky Ruffin at an Underground event to claim Vendetta Pro’s newest championship title. Now, while the title is not on the line, you can bet that Bateman would like to pick up a victory over a titleholder in Vendetta Pro, possibly getting himself back into title contention himself.


Singles Match
Vintage Dragon
w/ “Sin City Siren” Terra Calaway
One-Half of the
2013 Vendetta Pro Tag-Team of the Year

“Wrestling Personified”
Rik Luxury

Vintage Dragon, one of the top stars in Vendetta Pro Wrestling today. Rik Luxury, the first-ever Triple-Crown Champion in Vendetta Pro. Two of Vendetta Pro’s absolute best will go one-on-one at April Cruels Day, with more than just bragging rights on the line. Each of these two competitors are looking to get back into the title hunt. Vintage Dragon has momentum behind him, having one two out of his last three. Luxury has a great deal of experience in big match situations, and this may just be the biggest non-title match Vendetta Pro has seen in a long, long time.
Mixed Tag-Team Match
The team of
“The Fallen Flower”
Kikyo Nakamura


“The Gift”
Damien Grundy

w/ “So Fly” Big Ry Gamble

The team of
Kiara Dillon

Four-Time Powerlifiting World Champion
“The Rebel Rouser”
Clay Tawzer

One of last year’s biggest–or perhaps more accurately, most massive–rivalries re-ignites. This time, with a new twist, as the Vendetta Vixens get involved. Damien Grundy is one of the most complete athletes in all of Professional Wrestling, and Kikyo Nakamura has emerged as one of the most deadly female wrestlers in California. Meanwhile Clay Tawzer–Vendetta Pro Kayfabe College graduate and four-time World Champion in the sport of powerlifting–has come into his own as of late with a new focus, a new drive, and new results–including a recent victory over former Triple-Crown Champion Rik Luxury. Kiara Dillon made her return to Vendetta Pro last year, and is looking to show the team of Nakamura and Grundy that she is much more than just a pretty face and can live up to the moniker “Krazy”.

Vendetta Pro Wrestling
Tri-Force Championship
Mike Menace
2013 Vendetta Pro Wrestler of the Year
Vendetta Pro Tri-Force Champion

Lil Cholo

With only a 33.4% chance of retaining, the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Tri-Force Championship is one of the most difficult titles to keep. More often than not, the Tri-Force Champion has lost the title without actually being pinned or forced to submit, as one challenger can defeat the other to win the match, and thus, the title.
This is what makes Lil Cholo’s run as Champion so impressive. Having already outlasted his first reign as Tri-Force Champion (not to mention, being one of only two men who can claim to have held the Tri-Force Championship on more than one occasion), Cholo’s second run alone has made him the longest reigning Tri-Force Champion of all time. This lead to Lil Cholo being recognized as the 2013 Vendetta Pro Wrestler of the Year.
Now, Lil Cholo takes on yet another tough challenge as two Vendetta Pro originals will vie to become the new titleholder. Mike Menace, the veteran competitor out of Detroit, as well as former Vendetta Pro Heavyweight and Unified Tag-Team Champion Sunami, will both look to strip the title away from Cholo and walk away as new Tri-Force Champion.

Vendetta Pro Wrestling
Tag-Team Championship

J.D. Horror & “Metal Head Maniac” Sledge
2013 Vendetta Pro Most Hated of the Year
Vendetta Pro Tag-Team Champions
The Ballard Brothers
& Shannon Ballard

At Shamrock Slam, Vendetta Pro Wrestling’s Most Hated team of 2013 became two-time Vendetta Pro Tag-Team Champions, defeating Creepshow after a miscommunication caused Sledge to accidentally nail J.D. Horror. Initially, Horror was upset at Sledge, but once he realized that the crafty Canadian veterans did to them what they have done to so many others in the past, his anger–as well as that of Sledge–was focused back on the Ballards. Now, at April Cruels Day, the former Tag-Team Champions and graduates of Vendetta Pro Kayfabe College look to reclaim what they feel is rightfully theirs as they challenge The Ballard Brothers for the Tag-Team Championship in a rematch!
Main Event
Vendetta Pro Wrestling

Heavyweight Championship
Kadin Anthony
w/ Lady Vayne

Vendetta Pro Heavyweight Champion
“The Rock of Love”
Billy Blade

These two men once formed a team that struck an immortal fear into those who would rise against them. Together, they traveled the world and took on the fastest, the strongest, the biggest and the best teams in all of Professional Wrestling. Known as The Rock of Love, Kadin Anthony and Billy Blade were one of the best tag-teams not just in California, but anywhere in wrestling. They were two members of Vendetta Pro’s most controversial and dangerous group, The Five Most Wanted. Since breaking ways, they have each won championship gold, as along with Sunami, Kadin Anthony became one-half of the All Pro Wrestling/Vendetta Pro Wrestling Unified Tag-Team Champions. Meanwhile, Billy Blade became the Vendetta Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion. By hook or (in Billy Blade’s case) by crook, they’ve each put up win/loss records that anyone in wrestling would be proud of against some of the toughest competition anywhere.
Now, these two one-time best friends and tag-team partners will go at it for the biggest prize in Vendetta Pro Wrestling: the coveted Vendetta Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship. Billy Blade’s reign as champion is the second-longest in history–his own Midnight Delight stablemate Sean Casey holds the longest reign–and he has defeated tough opponents such as Chris Masters, Matt Hardy, and Vintage Dragon. However, none of them know Billy Blade the way that Kadin Anthony knows him. Will we have a new champion? Find out at April Cruels Day!
