Stars from ECCW and stars from ASW are colliding in neutral territory, under one roof, in one ring, in one massive match Feb. 16 to determine who will be the first-ever Slams For Sebastian champion.
Will it be ASW legend “Gorgeous” Michelle Starr, ECCW champion Cremator, last year’s Adam Firestorm champ Disco Fury, Hart Dungeon alumnus “Ravenous” Randy Myers, or the man many feel should be in the WWE, Scotty Mac?
Will it be one of the hometown heroes, Barry Goode or Sgt. Kaos? ECCW Vancouver Island champion BJ Laredo?
Vancouver Island born Scott Steel, Lak Siddartha, “Greedfather” Jordie Taylor and Krofton would all love to end the night with their arm raised in victory. And don’t think the popular Mr. India wouldn’t love to secure the victory for his young fans!
Comox Crusaders (Sgt. Kaos & Barry Goode) vs. Greatness On Demand (“Gorgeous” Michelle Starr & Disco Fury)
This is Sgt. Kaos’s last match due to compounding injuries to his right knee, leaving him with no choice but total knee replacement surgery. For his swan song, he has asked fellow Comox Valley native Barry Goode to tag with him against their respective trainers, “Gorgeous” Michelle Starr and Disco Fury.
Starr and Disco have impressive resumes. Fury has travelled all over the world and won many international titles. Starr has also wrestled all over the world, and has wrestled for WCW and the biggest show in the wrestling biz, WWF/WWE. Combined they are also responsible for training and grooming many wrestling stars in the Pacific Northwest. Despite this, they both have a tendency to bend the rules and cheat their way to victories. Starr has one victory over Kaos but needed a steel chair to beat him, while Kaos’s one victory over Starr was by the Gorgeous one’s attempt at using a chair again backfiring.
While not having an official match with Fury, Goode has seen enough of his former mentor’s matches to know how sneaky he can be – one of the “stayin’ alive” star’s favourite finishing moves is a disco ball to his opponent’s skull.
This match is personal as both Starr and Disco have vowed to not only beat their proteges but to hurt them so bad, neither will ever think of returning to the squared circle. The hometown heroes, however, have no plans of letting that happen and are set on sending Sgt. Kaos into retirement with one final victory.
Cremator vs. Scotty Mac
These two warriors have been waging war with each other for years. Simply put, the seven-foot tall monster and the arrogant adonis are two of the best in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Fan favourite Cremator has just won the ECCW Heavyweight Championship, a feat many thought was inevitable once he was given a shot, given his combination of size, power and skill.
Cocky veteran Scotty Mac has continued to dominate his competition and is regarded as pound for pound one of, if not, the best of the Northwest. Hhe made a recent appearance on Smackdown and defintely has the talent to compete with anyone on the WWE roster.
This match will feature two determined wrestlers, both wanting to be number one and both seeing the other as the one opponent standing in their way. Expect a war!
“Ravenous” Randy Myers vs. “Greedfather” Jordie Taylor
Ravenous Randy is a one-of-a-kind wrestler who combines amazing skill with an over-the-top personality that has made him a fan favourite wherever he goes. Trained in the famed Hart Dungeon, Myers has been called a future star by many, including Hall of Famer Mick Foley.
Taylor has a bright future in wrestling as as well, combining great talent with an aggressive edge. Although he is from Vancouver Island, there is no warmth in Taylor’s heart for the Comox Valley fans. The Greedfather will only care about one thing Saturday night and that’s a victory, by any means necessary, over the Ravenous one.
Raven Lake vs. Riea Von Slasher
Comox Valley fans are in for a treat with this ladies match. Both Riea and Raven are veterans of the squared circle and not only do they possess elite wrestling talent, they are both tough as nails.
Lake recently lost the CNWA Women’s Championship, a title both women want, and they see each other as stiff competition for a future shot at the gold.
A victory at Slams For Sebastian will go a long way in getting there and you can bet these two will pull out all the stops.
BJ Laredo vs. Krofton vs. Scott Steel
All three competitors are proud Vancouver Islanders and each wants the bragging rights that comes with a victory Saturday night.
BJ Laredo recently won the Vancouver Island Championship and is on a roll. His tag team partner, Scott Steel, while happy for his friend, has his sights on the title belt he possesses, and knows if he wins this match, he’ll catapult up the list of contenders.
Krofton is a newcomer to the sport and wants to use this triple threat match to show he belongs in the ring. All three are very talented and this may turn out to be the match of the night.
Mr. India vs. Lak Sidarrtha
There’s no way to describe Lak Sidarrtha without using words like monster or beast. He is power personified and uses his brute strength and brutal attack to overwhelm his opponents. He just never stops in his path of destruction.
At Slams for Sebastian, Mr. India steps in the ring to try and stop him. The popular veteran is beloved by fans of all ages and wants nothing more than to beat Lak and celebrate with the great people of Comox Valley. He and Sidarrtha have met many times in the ring, both holding victories over the other.
Will Mr. India’s experience, skill and the fortitude he recieves from the fans be enough to defeat the pure brutality of the powerful Lak Sidarrtha? Come to the show and find out!
Saturday night’s event at the Comox Band Hall is a fundraiser for seven-month old Sebastian Cobban, who has spent four months of his young life in hospital due to a rare medical condition. All the wrestlers are donating their matches and all proceeds are going to Sebastian’s parents, former Comox Valley residents Amanda Davis and Tyler Cobban, to help with their son’s medical costs.
