WWE, WCW elite hits Vernon mat for professional wrestling show

International wrestlers descend upon Vernon for Canadian Wrestling’s Elite anniversary tour

A Spanish giant, a Belgian Bull, a Mexican daredevil, an Austrian leg breaker and more are in store for local fans of professional wrestling when the body slammers from Canadian Wrestling’s Elite (CWE) return to Vernon April 8 at the Schubert Centre.

Wrestling fans will delight to see the return of CWE Champion Danny Duggan and the return of the lady wrestlers. They are joined by an international line-up of talent, many of which are making their first visit to Canada as part of this record-breaking tour. This, the tenth-anniversary tour for the Winnipeg-based league, starts in Manitoba on March 26 and winds its way west to Vancouver on April 10 before barnstorming back east, concluding with the circuit’s debut in Toronto on May 2.

Those at ringside will get their first look at a roster from multiple European nations. Germany’s Norman Harras, Austria’s Martin Pain, Belgium’s Robin Lekime, and seven-foot giant Alex Ace of Spain are billed to appear.

The tour is headlined by 30-year veteran of the mat wars, Psicosis who fans may recognize from television with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Born Dionicio Torres in Tijuana, Mexico, Psicosis began his career at age 18 and soon his talents saw him travelling the globe. In fact, it was in 1995 that he was recruited alongside fellow Mexican high flyer named Rey Misterio to introduce the style to American audiences, inspiring a lucha libre revolution in the U.S., bringing a dynamic, high-risk style to television and influencing the current generation of wrestlers.
