Jonny Johnson, founder of Project:Hero, was a guest on SMACKTALK! with Mark Richardson last night (9.2.14) and made two blockbuster announcements.

The first was confirming that Project:Hero would be "sponsoring" the opening bout of Revolution 129, a tag team affair between former SHOOT Project Tag Team Champions ANARCHY~! and indie stand-outs Tom Banks and Gio Aurelia, otherwise known as Crusher and The Spot Monkey.  Jonny said that Project:Hero will donate $3,000 to the charity of the winning team's choice, and that he would personally present the winners with an honorary check that night.

He followed that up with a second bombshell, saying that he would be making an announcement on his "official return to the ring" at the show as well, and that his last three doctor's visits have been "promising" and "uplifting".  He was frustrated about how this week's show (Rev 129) was booked, and that he had to unnecessarily let his fans down by opting out of a match he said "shouldn't have been booked to begin with".

He did ensure Mark and the listeners at home that [Gio] Aurelia and [Tom] Banks were the real deal and to expect great things from them.  He's also been acting as a liaison between the young team and SHOOT Project contract lawyers as they work toward a long term deal.

The whole interview will be available online at www.theNOW.net in our "alternative entertainment" section later Wednesday evening.
