Nevada takes Trans-Canada Champion wrestling title

Professional wrestling had its own take on paying respect to the Canadian Military on Remembrance Day.

Professional Wrestling had its own take on paying respect to the Canadian Military on Remembrance Day, as the Kelowna-based Big West Wrestling put on a card at the Rutland Centennial Hall on November 11.

Dubbed It’s All About Respect, the show offered free tickets to all active and retired service personnel.

The raucous crowd was treated to a night of intense wrestling action, with a lot of thrills and surprises along the way.

Amidst the controversy sparked by the political issues surrounding the NWA Canadian title, the crowd witness Kelowna’s Kyle Sebastian stripped of the All Star Wrestling Trans-Canada, due to a knee injury that has kept him out of action for over two months.

The main event saw Vance (Mr. Beefy Goodness) Nevada battle the popular Adam Ryder for the vacant strap, and the 14-year veteran Nevada was able to persevere to become a three-time Trans-Canada Champion in what was definitely a thrilling contest.

Other action saw Bishop and The Mauler battle to a double-countout; the two massive men continued fighting after the match was thrown out, and were later fined an undisclosed amount by the Rutland Park Society, as their brawling destroyed one of the doorframes in the building. K.C. Andrews had his wrestling ban lifted, but also had his undefeated streak in Kelowna snapped: in an Intergender Tag Match, Andrews and his ‘K.C. Connection’ teammate, K.C. Spinelli, lost to Marty (Mad Dog) Sugar and Raven Lake, when Ms. Lake pinned Mr. Andrews.

The K.C. Connection attacked both Lake and Sugar after the match, but Collin Cutler came out of the crowd to make the save, and demanded a match with KC Andrews on Dec. 3. The match will see Andrews’ questionable “Ontario Wrestling Championship” on the line. In other matches, Nicole Matthews defeated Sammy (Bambi) Hall, Tony Baroni cheated to pin Matt XStatic, and Mean Machine pinned Rigor Von Slasher in a battle of masked men.

Big West Wrestling returns to the Rutland Centennial Hall on Saturday, Dec. 3. The ‘Santa Slam’ event will have a special admission of one new, unwrapped toy.

All toys will be donated to several charities in Kelowna, just in time for Christmas, and all wrestlers will be donating their time for this great cause.  Please go online to for more information.
