Canadian Wrestling Elite’s (CWE) 11th Anniversary Tour was scheduled to come to Prince George this Saturday (May 9), but was ultimately cancelled by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The outbreak hasn’t stopped organizers from planning their next show, which will see another trip to B.C.’s northern capital.
The CWE announced this week its Extreme Consequences Tour running in October and November this year with 24 stops across western Canada and Ontario.
Headlining the marquee this time will be... well,... “The Headline” Shaun Martens.
“It is predicted that CWE's Extreme Consequences Tour will be the most star-studded in CWE history,” says spokesperson Danny Warren, “so the copious amounts of confidence by Martens could hold extreme consequences for his run as champion if he isn't careful about keeping his ego in check when competing against the elite from across Canada and beyond!”
According to CWE, Martens won the High Impact Wrestling Grand Championship in his home province of Saskatchewan before COVID-19.
He’s looking to add to is reign by competing in all 24 events.
Prince George’s show at the Connaught Youth Centre is slated for Oct. 27, 2020.
Three other B.C. shows will follow in Williams Lake, Kamloops and Golden, Oct. 28-30.
The first two shows in Prince George, April and November 2019, raised almost $2,500 for local navy cadets.
