It was a week of major match announcements across Alberta, as both Real Canadian Wrestling and Monster Pro Wrestling get set for two of their biggest events of the year. Get caught up with the week that was across the province in Last Week in Alberta Pro Wrestling!
Heavy Metal, Slammer set to face off at RCW 16th-Anniversary Show
- Two true titans of the Albertan independent scene are set to square off this weekend, as Heavy Metal of Top Talent faces off with Brice “The Slammer” Sova at Saturday’s RCW 16th-Anniversary Show. Following a lengthy run with the P.W.A, the Slammer made his long-awaited return to Real Canadian Wrestling last Saturday and immediately set his sights on the longest-reigning champion in the companies’ history. Now, with Metal now set for a
title shotchampionship opportunity of his own against the Aussie Legend on May 3rd, could this highly-touted bout potentially get even bigger? We highly recommend visiting Real Canadian Wrestling’s Facebook page for more information.
Chimera, Rhude set to face off in Hair vs. Career Match
- After months of feuding, Sir Epic Eddie Rhude and Cody Chimera will face off on May 4th for what could be the final time. Following last Saturday’s Marie Ewaschuk Memorial Show, the two long-time rivals agreed to a Hair vs. Career match, with Rhude putting his RCW contract on the line for an opportunity to shave his opponent’s trademark locks. While having Dirty, Inc. by his side gives Chimera the numbers advantage, Rhude has found himself with some unlikely allies in past weeks. Can Rhude capitalize on his veteran experience? Or, will Chimera capitalize on the opportunity to take his rival out of the picture?
