Alberta is set to see what life looks like without Michael Richard Blais, at least for the foreseeable future.
As announced on a Thursday’s edition of CWL LIVE, God’s Gift to Wrestling will be undergoing surgery in the near future to repair a torn pectoral muscle. The surgery is expected to keep him out for up to 10 months.
Thus far, a surgery date has yet to be confirmed.
With Blais out until at least the early part of 2021, there’s now a massive hole to fill at the top of the men’s side of the PWA roster. Though the promotion boasts a number of Western Canada’s top stars including names like Michael Allen Richard Clark, “The Thickness” Reid Matthews and Blais’ Western Lions’ stablemate Brandon Van Danielson, few would argue that MRB represents one of, if not the, premiere professional wrestlers in the country. The multi-time champion has been a staple of the Canadian independent scene for 14 years at this point, with his upcoming break his first real absence in his career. In our recent interview, Blais singled out Jack Pride as a name that could potentially fill the void that his forced departure would create.
Though no plans have been confirmed, Blais did indicate that he would be interested in a potential non-combat role, such as an advocate or manager role, should the opportunity present itself.
Stay tuned to the WCSN for more on Blais’ injury.
