Franky the Mobster finds himself facing the biggest challenge of his life as he must beat an angry Pierre Carl Ouellet to defend his newly won International Wrestling Syndficate. title, during Season’s Beatings, December 18th. Franky won the title after being the last man standing in a six man elimination match, pinning PCO, and helped immensely by a thunderous chair shot that his partner in crime Kevin Steen delivered on PCO right after being eliminated.
This match is beset by ironies. While Kevin Steen helped Franky win the IWS title, he won’t be in Franky’s corner to help him defend the title as Kevin Steen will be in California wrestling for Pro Wrestling Guerrila. IWS fans will remember that it was in Kevin Steen’s first title defence that Franky the Mobster made his surprise debut, helping Kevin maintain his title by ambushing El Generico and guest referee PCO. The greatest irony of all may be that since that match PCO has been a little confused, believing himself at times to be back in the WWE, facing WWE wrestlers. Kevin Steen’s chair shot appears to have returned PCO to his senses, and a furious PCO wants both his title back and payback on Franky the Mobster for having stolen six months of his life.

It was always weird when WCW used to refer to Jimmy Hart as Hogan's "longtime manager," when they had been together for two years and everyone remembered Hart sending Earthquake, Dino Bravo, etc. against Hogan in the WWF.
