Grappling for mental wellness

Paul English

When Prince George’s Primetime Wrestling returns to action on November 3-4 at the Roll-A-Dome, they do so with a special cause in mind. Presenting their second annual Primetime tournament – the event is both a tribute to a fallen friend and support for our community to preserve life.

The tournament was the creation of local organizers Davy Greenlees and Stuart Brown in honor of a Prince George wrestling alumnus Paul English, who was better known between the ropes as “Primetime” Franky Styles. Sadly, during the pandemic, Styles took his own life after suffering in silence with a bout of deep depression. Greenlees and Brown created the tournament to honor their friend, but also to create a meaningful avenue to support the fundraising efforts of the Prince George Crisis Prevention and Intervention Centre.

The wrestling organization has partnered on this fundraiser in the past, donating thousands of dollars to the organization and they have assembled a strong line up of talent for this year’s tournament with hopes of eclipsing their previous donations and drawing the largest crowd for professional wrestling in Prince George in recent memory.

In addition to local competitors like The Mauler and “The Prospector” Wes Barker, local fans will be treated to appearances by Primetime champions “Mr. Beefy Goodness” Vance Nevada and “Backstage Pass” Braydon Goss, the first ever Prince George appearance of the internationally traveled Mentallo and many more.

Advance tickets are available at Scrapbook Zone. More information about the event and the wrestlers scheduled to appear can be found online at Primetimes Facebook page @PrimetimeCanada
