Will strategy overcome treachery on the Feb. 16 Slams for Sebastion fundraising wrestling card in Courtenay?
Sgt. Kaos and Barry Goode – the two hometown favourites on the card – are hoping so. They are joining forces to take on Gorgeous Michelle Starr and Disco Fury in what promises to be a knock-'em-down, drag-'em-out tag team match.
Kaos (aka Keith Spinks, who is organizing the card) was originally scheduled to meet Starr in what was to be Sarge's final bow due to multiple knee injuries. Meanwhile, Goode (aka Barry Welsh) was preparing to face Fury in his second bout since coming out of retirement recently.
The locals were determined to make their matches "The student becomes the teacher" affairs, as Starr and Fury mentored Kaos and Goode, respectively, when they got their start in the sport.
But things have changed.
"Starr and Disco have been bragging that they are going to take Barry and I out in our singles matches, send Barry back into retirement and make sure I never even think about coming out of retirement in the future," Kaos told the Record this week
"Apparently they think since they brought us into the wrestling business, it's their god-given right to do whatever they want to take us out of it. Since they are known for interfering in each others matches and cheating to help each other win, Barry and I decided to join forces and take on Starr and Disco (known collectively as Greatness on Demand) in a tag match rather than have to wrestle with eyes in the back of our heads," said Kaos, adding he and Goode will enter the ring as the Comox Crusaders.
"Instead of two matches where it'd basically be two against one, it'll be one match, two vs. two. The tag match that was already on the card is now two singles matches," Kaos explained. "Fan favourite Azeem the Dream will take on "Greedfather" Jordie Taylor and the popular masked man Mr. India will meet "The Beast from the East," Lak Sidarrtha.
Also scheduled to meet are Cremator and Scotty Mac in a battle of two of B.C.'s most colourful wrestlers.
The event is a fundraiser for seven-month old Sebastian Cobban, who has spent four months of his young life in hospital due to a rare medical condition.
