CWC rolls through Central Alberta

On Saturday, July 2, the Canadian Wrestling Coalition (CWC) honoured our nation with their very first event, Maple Leaf Mayhem.

Mayhem! Mayhem! Mayhem!

On Saturday, July 2, the Canadian Wrestling Coalition (CWC) honoured our nation with their very first event, Maple Leaf Mayhem, at the Sylvan Lake Community Centre

The event featured six bouts in the squared circle with a surprise tag team battle to finish off the evening of grapples, submissions and slams.

Jack Pride, who returned to the ring after losing a contract versus contract match to Dylon Stone last month, was pleased with the results of the evening.

“Overall, I think Maple Leaf Mayhem was our strongest show to date,” he said. “We had a solid card that delivered top to bottom.”

Pride wrestled at Maple Leaf Mayhem under the employment of Stone who now owns Pride’s future with the CWC. Despite having to work for a bad guy in the ring, Pride looks forward to working in Sylvan Lake and Central Alberta again.

“With crowd support like that, we would be crazy not to come back,” Pride said when referring to the near 400 people that packed into the gymnasium.

Pride was also happy to see a home-town Sylvan Lake boy, T.S. Cutler, get a big victory in from of his friends and family.

“It was great,” he said referring to Cutler’s approval. “The crowd was hot and receptive to the show. You could especially tell there was a strong local presence after T.S. Cutler got the three count and the roof blew off the building.”

Pride is excited for the future of CWC wrestling in Central Alberta.

“I keep seeing a lot of the same faces in the crowd, so we’ve definitely got fans who are willing to follow us, but at the same time there are tons of new faces at every show,” he said. It just shows that we’re growing as a company and gaining support from our fans and the community.”

The wrestlers of CWC will return in under a month on August 6, when they grapple out in Blackfalds for their show Primal Instinct.

“We are hoping to keep doing what we’ve been doing,” Pride said. “Beating expectations and having another sell out crowd”
