Body slams, drop kicks and elbow drops aplenty will be featured on Saturday, Jan. 30 at the K’omoks Band Hall (3320 Comox Rd.) when the stars of the Pure Wrestling Association hold their first live event of the year.

The card is in support of Comox Valley Special Olympics. A portion of every single ticket sold will go to the association as well as 50 per cent of the profits.

“Volunteers from the CV Special Olympics are excited and cannot wait to be part of the event,” a PWA spokesperson said. The doors open at 7 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. bell time. The event is fun for all ages and will feature six big matches.

Ethan HD from Hollywood, California will make his debut against Salt Spring Island’s favourite pro wrestler Krofton in the British Columbia Championship Match. Former Comox Valley resident Barry Goode will battle Lak Siddartha for the PV Championship.

In ladies action, Riea Von Slasher puts her VIPW Women’s Championship on the line against Violet. Also in action will be Campbell River’s own E.O. Mike Becherer, Cremator Von Slasher, BJ Laredo, Scott Steel, Matt XStatic and Mexican Luchador Super V-los.

“If you have never taken the chance to come to a live PWA pro wrestling event you’re missing out on an action-packed night of exciting entertainment,” the spokesperson said.

“The wrestling that is coming to town is up close and personal. Fans get to interact directly with the wrestlers. It’s fun for little Jenny and Jimmy, but also everyone in between to Grandma and Grandpa.”
