CWC wrestling feels at home in Sylvan Lake

The Canadian Wrestling Coalition(CWC) slammed back into the Sylvan Lake Community Centre for their show Game of Throws.

The Canadian Wrestling Coalition(CWC) slammed back into the Sylvan Lake Community Centre for their show Game of Throws.

On Saturday, September 24 the superstars of the CWC held five matches for a crowd of well over 200 people, all supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, who the CWC has teamed up with in order to end a disease that effects Canadians more then any other country in the world per capita.

Commissioner Dylon Featherstone was pleased with the crowd.

“The show was an absolute success, the residents of Sylvan Lake were out in full force and got rowdy with the Canadian Wrestling Coalition,” Featherstone said.

The rowdiness he is referring to was highlighted by a CWC Championship triple-threat match between Shaun Martens, Dylon Stone and the Cheetah-Bear Jude Dawkins. Dawkins would beat the near-impossible odds and take home the newly-minted Championship Belt, which was introduced to the crowd earlier that evening.

The night also featured a difficult evening for home-town boy T.S. Cutler, who was dismantled by the 250 lbs. monster Heavy-Metal, who added insult to injury following the match by suplexing Cutler on the exposed floor. Cutler would need help and out and will surely be looking for a victory on October 29, when the CWC returns to the Community Centre for their show Headlock of Horrors.

The night also featured a difficult farewell to Jack Pride, a fan favourite who had his CWC contract ripped up following a disappointing match against a visiting wrestler from Stud Stable. Stud Stable is managed by Colonel Austin, who is looking to impose his will by using his oil wealth to buy the CWC. The fans would chant “Bring back Jack”, throughout the night.

“To be honest, I was a little shocked. I hadn’t heard support like that since I won the CWC title last year,” Pride said.

Pride couldn’t get into specifics about his future in wrestling, but did say that there are some offers on the table.

The CWC brand is growing, thanks in part to the support of Sylvan Lake.

“Sylvan is becoming a warm and welcoming home for us, and with our recent partnership with Monster Pro Wrestling[MPW] out of Edmonton, the sky is truly the limit,” Featherstone said, adding that every show the audience learns as much about the CWC superstars as they do from them.

The CWC will return October 29 to once again “drop an offer on MS”. You can pick up your tickets to the event at CWCwrestling.ca
