Veteran grappler Ruff Crossing captured the Pro Wrestling BLITZ heavyweight title once again at the promotion's "Hostile Intent" show in Joliet, Illinois on May 24. When he accepted Crossing's challenge last month, reigning BLITZ champ Vic Capri vowed to face his challenger without the help of cronies Matty Starr and Mr. Flores. True to his word, Capri entered the ring area to face Crossing alone but shortly after the match began, Starr and Flores emerged and attempted to interfere of Capri's behalf. Capri refused their assistance however, and tried to best Crossing on his own. After tough battle between the men, Crossing delivered one tombstone and then another to the champ but still proved unable to pin Capri for the win. Ultimately delivered a senses-shattering "super tombstone" off the ropes, Crossing finally laid out Capri for the decisive three-count, ending Vic Capri's reign as BLITZ champion. Speaking to WrestlingINC.com about the buildup to the match and its outcome, Ruff Crossing stated, "I was suspended from BLITZ for a few months and when I got back, I saw that Vic was having his henchmen do all of his dirty work for him while he held on to the title. When he accepted my challenge, he gave his word that nobody would interfere and he kept that promise. Even on his own, he was a tough opponent but I still came out champion and I'm going to be rocking and rolling and tombstoning as BLITZ champion for a very long time!"
