PWA wrestlers returning for second Comox Valley Special Olympics fundraiser

Nolan James scheduled to make his hometown pro wrestling debut June 24

Nolan James is preparing for his pro wrestling hometown debut on June 24.

Body slams in support of Comox Valley Special Olympics hit the mat June 24 in Courtenay.

The Pure Wrestling Association is returning for its second fundraiser for local Special Olympics following a successful Jan. 30 show. This one is also at the K’omoks Band Hall, 3320 Comox Rd. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the bell rings for the first match at 7:30 p.m.

Advance tickets are $20 front row, $15 general and $10 youth through The Goat 98.9FM (201A-910 Fitzgerald Ave. in Courtenay) and online at www.canadianprowrestling.com. Tickets are $5 more at the door.

A portion of each ticket sold goes to CVSO, plus 50 per cent of the proceeds.

There is also another local connection to this show.

Nolan James, who is challenging Scott Steel for the PWA Pure Violence Championship, used to attend the local pro wrestling shows as a fan when he was younger.

He dreamed of being a pro wrestler, worked hard to be a pro wrestler and now has realized his dream. He will be making his hometown debut on June 24, and invites all his friends to come out and see him in action.

The main event will see BJ Laredo try to wrestle the PWA British Columbia Championship away from Krofton.

Cremator Von Slasher has issued an Open Challenge while also scheduled to lend their talents to the cause are Riea Von Slasher, E.O. Mike Becherer, Lak Siddartha, Chris Dexton and more.
