CLOVERDALE, B.C. — After chasing the All Star Wrestling Trans-Canada Champion, “Mr. Beefy Goodness” Vance Nevada, for six months (including a controversial match in Cloverdale on April 13 where everyone thought the title had changed hands), Gangrel has finally bested Nevada for the strap. Gangrel, a former star in the WWE “Attitude Era” who helped springboard the careers of Christian, Edge, and the Hardy Boys, won the belt in front of a raucous crowd this evening in Cloverdale.
Up next for Gangrel is two tough title defenses: hometown hero, Cody “TKO” Smith, in Squamish on Saturday; and current NWA Canadian Champion, BISHOP, is slated to face Gangrel on September 21. Meanwhile, Nevada returns home to Alberta for a CNWA TV Taping in Lethbridge on Saturday, with Pure Power Wrestling.
Kyle Sebastian is waiting in the wings, and can potentially regain the Trans-Canada Title (which he was stripped of due to injury last November, and has yet to receive a valid rematch after his return to action this February), on September 22 when Big West Wrestling is a part of Rutland September Days; Sebastian has already been slotted into the Main Event on that night, against the new Trans-Canada Champion. Meanwhile, Sebastian faces Tony Baroni this Sunday at KELOWNAFORNIA DREAMIN’ in what is being considered a “Dream Match” by many people in the Pacific Northwest.
