Old scores were settled, rivalries were renewed and rules were not just bent but broken when All Star Wrestling returned to Cumberland.
The Aug. 8 show at the CRI helped kick off the Cumberland Motorcycle Roundup weekend and provided Comox Valley wrestling fans with a night full of non-stop action.
Those fans were outraged when The Great Kasaki and Scott Steel cheated (according to a seasoned ringside observer) to defeat the local favourite Thrillbillies – Courtenay’s Barry Goode and Campbell River’s Eddie Osbourne.
Bruiser Joe defeated Krofton, and in a Grudge Match over a decade in the making, crowd-favourite Cremator Von Slasher pinned Gorgeous Michelle Starr. In the match of the night, Bambi Hall defeated Riea Von Slasher.
Still seething from he and partner Goode’s loss earlier in the evening, the determined Osbourne outlasted all other competitors (Cremator Von Slasher, BJ Laredo, Scott Steel, Barry Goode, Krofton, Great Kasaki, Bruiser Joe) in an Over the Top Battle Royale to become the King of the Island.
Proceeds from the event went toward paediatric cancer research.
