Albertan wrestling fans are tantalizingly close to their first original pro wrestling content in over a month.
Yesterday, the Northern Alberta Invitational Tournament was announced in conjunction with the Top Talent Wrestling Academy, Wrestling Rodeo, and Wrestlesode. The tournament, which has been comprised of footage filmed earlier this year, will be presented next weekend in a tournament-style fashion. Earlier this afternoon, the Wrestling Rodeo announced the first-round matchups scheduled for this Saturday, May 2nd.
The A-Block of the tournament will see Kato square off with Jack Pride, while Sheik Shabaz will take on the Giant Orion. B-Block action will see two classic Albertan feuds reignited, as Michael Richard Blais and Marky lock up for the first time since the latter departed the PWA, while Heavy Metal and Dylon Stone will renew tensions just over a month after the two squared off for the first time ever.
Additionally, a featured matchup between Taryn from Accounting and Zoë Sager is scheduled to take place during the 2nd evening of the tournament.
In an additional note, Backbreaker Media has announced that a live pre-show highlighting the match announcements and the tournament itself will take place on Wednesday, April 29th at 8:00 pm.
