Becherer five-time champ

The Pure Wrestling Association’s June 24 card in Courtenay raised $106 for Special Olympics Comox Valley.

E.O. Mike Becherer won his fifth PWA championship at the June 24 show in Courtenay at the K’omoks Band Hall.

The Pure Wrestling Association’s June 24 card in Courtenay raised $106 for Special Olympics Comox Valley.

Organizers say attendance was down somewhat from the previous event in January (also an SOCV fundraiser), and notes PWA’s final show of the year in Courtenay is scheduled for Sept. 17, with details to be announced closer to show time.

The June 24 card at the K’omoks Band Hall featured E.O. Mike Becherer becoming a five-time PWA champion, and the “hometown” debut of Nolan James, who was inspired to become a wrestler at an early age when his father drove him and a friend from Sayward to Courtenay to watch the sport at the Native Sons Hall.

The action started with B.C. champion Krofton defeating BJ Laredo to move on to the PWA championship match. Lak Siddartha then defeated Cremator Von Slasher by DQ to move on to the championship match.

E.O. Mike Becherer w/ Corey Spade defeated Riea Von Slasher w/ Cremator and Lak to move on to the championship match. Also moving on to the PWA title tilt, Pure Violence champion Scott Steel defeated James.

Christian Kingdon defeated Reid Zonneveld in an Academy Showcase Match, and then it was time for the big bout of the night.

In an epic battle, Becherer and w/ Corey Spade defeated Scott Steel, Krofton and Lak Siddartha to become a five-time Pure Wrestling champion.
