Guaranteed ‘Kaos’ on wrestling card

”Kaos” Keith Spinks

On Saturday, Jan. 5, PWA Live Pro Wrestling is bringing action-packed family entertainment to the Comox Valley — and for the first time in six years, there is guaranteed to be some Kaos. After being retired for the last six years, local pro wrestler “Kaos” Keith Spinks will be back in the squared circle at the K’ómoks Band Hall. But this time, he’s not there to hit Stunners on some trash talking opponents.

Kaos is there to receive the Outstanding Contribution Award from PWA Canada for his contributions to local pro wrestling and his hometown community through the charitable events he has organized over the years. Whether it was established charities like YANA and Comox Valley Special Olympics, or local families in need, he had a strong urge to help and used pro wrestling to do it.

“I’m very honoured and thankful that PWA decided to present me with this award,” Spinks said. “I can’t accept it alone though. One person doesn’t make a Pro Wrestling event. It took other big hearted wrestlers, referees and support staff to put the event on. It took local media to help promote it, and it took the local wrestling fans and community to come out and support the show.”

Kaos hopes the K’ómoks Band Hall is packed to the rafters with friends, family and the community that has supported pro wrestling and the hometown rassler over the years so he can share the award with them.

“I want them there so I can personally thank them for making this possible and more importantly, making others’ lives a little easier by attending the charitable events and giving to those in need.”

Goat FM’s Rock Dawg Andrew Davis has been asked to present the award to Kaos.

“I’ve known Andrew for many years, and he has always been a huge supporter of local pro wrestling and has worked side by side with me on these charitable events. Like me, he loves the Comox Valley and does whatever he can to help his community.”

Reflecting on his wrestling career that was cut short by injuries, the 49-year-old Kaos has no regrets.

“I never realized my goal of wrestling for the WWE and headlining Wrestlemania,” he says with a smile. “But thats OK. I had fun, I traveled, I met some awesome people that I wouldn’t have met otherwise, and I shared locker rooms and made memories with some WWE legends like Tito Santana, Honky Tonk Man, Bad News Brown and Jim the Anvil Neidhart that I watched on TV and looked up to.”

Clashing in battles and feuds with PNW stars like “Gorgeous” Michelle Starr, Scotty Mac, Ladies Choice and Disco Fury in front of his hometown fans was an unforgettable experience for Kaos as well.

“I remember always being excited when we were heading to an event in the Comox Valley because we had the best fans coming to the shows and the other wrestlers loved wrestling here. I was always so proud to be the hometown guy here.”

Also on the Jan. 5 bill is a main event match for the Pure Wrestling Championship. Comox’s very own Judas Icarus will take on Campbell River’s E.O. Mike Becherer. These two are fierce rivals and the loser of this match will not get another championship match against the other until a new champion is crowned. This is the big rubber match between the two top wrestlers in the PWA.

There will also be an Internet Title match as Krofton takes on Nathan Legacy.

And Courtenay’s Jonathan Woodhall will transform into the Fire Wasp as he makes his hometown debut.

Plus so much more.

Doors open for the PWA Live Pro Wrestling ‘Holiday Hangover’ event at 6 p.m. The show will end no later that 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at the door, at the Goat FM radio station, and at www.PWACanada.com.
