Canadian Wrestling Elite returns to Okanagan

The CWE 10 year anniversary tour comes in April

The biggest Canadian wrestling show is scheduled to return to the Okanagan this spring, with a stop in Kelowna April 11. The Canadian Wrestling Elite, which was once quoted by some as “one and done”, is going strong into its 10th year, and hosts some of biggest stars and shows in Canadian wrestling.

The CWE celebrates its 10th anniversary with a tour starting in March. It will be the biggest tour in the history of the CWE in and Canadian wrestling with 38 events covering five provinces, with stops in new cities.

“The Okanagan is still a growing fan base,” said CWE owner-operator Danny Warren. “But it keeps growing by the day. Whether we get a big crowd or a little crowd, people will come back for the next show and they’ll bring new (fans).”

The anniversary tour makes stops in Kelowna, Vernon, and Penticton. The previous CWE stops in Penticton have been a big success, Warren said, and notes that the Vernon and Kelowna crowds are still growing.

“We’re hopeful to keep growing, as we see wrestlers from all over the world join CWE, as no other wrestling company (outside the WWE) is offering as many events as the CWE,” said Warren.

The anniversary tour will make stops in bigger and new markets including first-time stops in Vancouver and Toronto.
