Second annual Carihi Cup goes March 13 in Campbell River

Comox Valley's Barry Goode and Sgt. Kaos to be part of the evening's entertainment

Northstarz 2014 Rookie of the Year Jaida is hoping to capture the Carihi Cup come March 13 in Campbell River.

“March Matness” is returning to Campbell River, and wrestling fans anxious for the return of professional wrestling couldn’t be happier.

On March 13, the Pure Wrestling Association (PWA) is presenting the 2015 Carihi Cup at the Carihi Secondary School gym. Doors open at 7 p.m. with bell time 8 p.m. for the second annual event.

Highlighting the card is a four-women tournament to determine the 2015 Carihi Cup champion. The divas duelling for the title are Shimmer champion Nicole Matthews, All Star Wrestling champion Riea Von Slasher, Beauty Slammers champion Bambi Hall and 2014 Northstarz Rookie of the Year Jaida (who was featured on WWE Raw last year as part of the feud between Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella).

Von Slasher will take on Hall in one semifinal while Matthews and Jaida will square off in the other semi.

Also featured will be PWA B.C. champion Mike “Thrillbilly” Becherer putting his title on the line against Scott Steel and Comox Valley’s Barry Goode taking on Cremator Von Slasher. Other scheduled matches include Lak Siddartha facing BJ Laredo and former six-time PWA champ “Big Ticket” Reggie Marley going up against Krofton.

Extremely reliable sources indicate there will also be a special appearance by Comox Valley’s Sgt. Kaos.

Advance tickets are $10 or $15 at the door, with kids five and under free. Target employees can save 50 per cent with presentation of a pay stub or employee card.

Becherer, who is the owner of PWA and resides in Campbell River, notes both Goode and Sgt. Kaos are full-time Target employees who are among the thousands losing their jobs as the U.S. retailer is closing its Canadian stores.

Advance tickets are available by calling 519-998-8799 and at Fitness Etc. (190 Dogwood St.) in Campbell River.  For more information, visit PWA online at
