PHOTOS: Professional wrestling comes to Prince George with a vengeance

Canadian Wrestling Elite’s (CWE) 10th Anniversary tour stops in Prince George for a night of action

The sounds of a riled up crowd and bodies slamming the floor echoed through the Connaught Youth Centre Sunday night (April 7), as Canadian Wrestling Elite (CWE) brought its 10th-anniversary tour to Prince George.

The ring-side seats and bleachers were filled with wrestling fans who gleefully cheered on the “good guys” and shouted insults at the “bad guys”.

It was an action-packed event featuring headlocks, body slams, sucker punches, and more.

Prince George’s own wrestler the Mauler even faced off his opponent the Crusher in the final match of the evening. 

After the Crusher insulted the Mauler and all of Prince George in the process, the Mauler conquered the match leaving the Crusher defeated and the crowd cheering.


The crowd was also treated to amazing wrestling from the 30-year career Mexican Lucha Libre Legend Psicosis, CWE Champion "Hotshot" Danny Duggan, Spain's seven-foot Giant Alex Ace, women's wrestling star Maddison Miles, "The Queen Of The Okanagan" Scarlett Black, Austrian MMA Champion Martin Pain, and "The Belgian Bull" Robin Lekime.

This is the first time CWE has come to northern B.C. and Prince George, but nevertheless, the wrestlers came prepared to give back to the community.

CWE donated a portion of the proceeds to support the NLCC #142 Aurora Navy League cadets in the city. 

The cadets head to a military camp every summer in Vancouver, and 100 per cent of the money raised from the CWE concession stand and a portion of ticket sales went to a cadet camp fund.

When everything was said and done, the cadets raised a total of $1,193.85.

The anniversary tour is stopping in a total of 38 cities across Canada.
