Primetime Wrestling to recognize Hall of Fame achievement

Princess Delta Dawn

Prince George has been a hub of professional wrestling activity dating back to 1936 when promoter W.R. Munro brought boxing and wrestling to the old Ritts-Kifer Hall.

In the decades since, dozens of wrestlers from northern B.C. have climbed through the ropes to create their own successes both at home and beyond.

Primetime Wrestling will recognize the achievements of the wrestlers that have significantly contributed to the success of professional wrestling with the first inductions into the league’s Hall of Fame as part of their upcoming events on February 16th and 17th at the Prince George Civic Centre.

One of the first inductees will be the internationally travelled, Princess Delta Dawn. Starting her career with BCTV’s All Star Wrestling in 1984 as a teenager, her career took her across Canada as well as two tours of Japan. She is an inductee in the BC Sports Hall of Fame and still proudly calls Prince George home.

Hall of Fame honors will also be issued for the late Paul English, who wrestled for a number of years in the north by the name “Primetime” Franky Styles. His legacy lives on through the efforts of the current league organizers.

Primetime wrestling has teamed with the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, and proceeds from the February events will go toward northern hospital support.

Tickets are available in advance at two locations, J&A Stero+ (1839 1st ave) or the Scrapbook Zone (3899 18th ave).
