PCO Collides With Kon In Monstrous Showdown at No Surrender
Recently on iMPACT!, Kon was on a mission to prove that he is the “Baddest Man in TNA”. After telling Deaner that The Design is dead, Kon made a bold statement when he viciously assaulted the “French-Canadian Frankenstein”, PCO. One week later, Kon demolished not one but two unlucky opponents before PCO attacked in retaliation. We can now confirm that at No Surrender, these two behemoths will face off one-on-one. Brace yourself for this hard-hitting collision between two of the most fearsome individuals on the TNA roster: PCO and Kon.
On February 23rd, the stars of TNA Wrestling will show No Surrender streaming LIVE on TNA+, YouTube for IMPACT Ultimate Insiders and TrillerTV from the Alario Center in New Orleans. Tickets are available now at Eventbrite.com.
