The Pure Wrestling Association (PWA) B.C. championship will be on the line May 22 in Courtenay when champion “E.O.” Mike Becherer takes on Cremator Von Slasher.
And there will be guaranteed fireworks in a special grudge match between “Rock Dawg” Andrew Davis and Barry Goode that will pit the Comox Valley against Campbell River.
“A few days ago, Rock Dawg Andrew Davis was talking about the show on 98.9 FM The Goat when former Comox Valley resident Barry Goode, who now lives in Campbell River, called in and started putting down the Comox Valley and the people who live here,” an event spokesperson said.
“Andrew was born and raised here and took exception to Goode’s comments and challenged Barry to a match on May 22 to defend his hometown’s honour.”
And the Rock Dawg will not be alone in his quest to make Goode rue the day he besmirched the Comox Valley. Sgt. Kaos, the popular wrestler from Courtenay, also took umbrage at Goode’s inflammatory remarks and has offered to train the Rock Dawg between now and May 22.
“I’m going to teach him a few tools to beat Barry Goode,” said the Sarge, who confirmed that he will be in the Rock Dawg’s corner during the match, which some are already calling The Uncivil War.
Other matches announced for the card include Krofton vs. Nick Radford and BJ Laredo vs. James Alexander. Previously announced is Krystal making her PWA debut against veteran Riea Von Slasher.
The action starts at 7 p.m. at the K’omoks First Nation Band Hall (3320 Comox Rd. in Courtenay). with tickets $15 general, $10 youth, and kids five and under free with a paid adult.
Tickets are available at The Goat 98.9 FM (201-910 Fitzgerald Ave. in Courtenay), by phone at 519-998-8799 or online at PWACanada.com
