Primetime Wrestling thrills crowds; raises money for crisis intervention centre

Prince George was treated to a double header of body-slams and flying drop-kicks at the Prince George Dome on November 3 and 4, with fans on hand witnessing history in the making.

A record-breaking crowd for the local circuit saw a combined 851 fans through the doors for the two-night wrestling extravaganza. Those on hand were treated to some hard-hitting action.

The Aviator’ Sean Gaston, of Kelowna survived seven other competitors to win the second annual Primetime memorial tournament, outlasting the internationally travelled “Zombie Killer” Mentallo in the finals. Gaston’s coronation as tournament winner was greeted with a raucous chorus of boos and jeers.

Whether you like it or you don’t like it, you better learn to love it, because 2024 is going to be the year of Sean Gaston,” said the arrogant victor.

Fans, however, were delighted when the unpopular Vance Nevada was toppled for the Primetime Wrestling heavyweight championship, falling at the hands of The Mauler, a northern B.C. mainstay.

It’s an unbelievable feeling to earn a win like that in front of my friends and family here in P.G.”, says The Mauler. “I feel like I survived a war, but I know the challengers are already lining up for a shot at the gold, so there’s no resting on laurels, it’s time to take it to another level.”

The wins continued even after the event as CEO Davy Greenlees announced that $2,706 was raised for the Prince George Crisis Intervention and Prevention Centre. The wrestling league has been active in their support of Prince George-based charities and causes, bringing their one year total of charitable support to $13,033 to date.

Plans are already underway for the next local match in February with an intention to see the ladies back in action.
