Prairie Wrestling Alliance coming to Edmonton International Raceway July 21

There really is a sporting and entertainment experience like no other, and it is coming to Wetaskiwin July 21: pro wrestling.

The Prairie Wrestling Alliance will be at Edmonton International Raceway Saturday night, noted EIR spokesperson Loretta Thiering.

Thiering said the racing that night includes IMCA modifieds, baby grands and mini cups, which will end a little earlier than normal to accommodate the PWA’s wrestling ring as it’s assembled in the pit area. Then the combat starts.

The PWA was founded in 2001 and is owned by Kurt Sorochan and Nizar Watfa. The PWA typically offers monthly events in Edmonton and Calgary.

Current co-champions include Brandon Van Danielson and Michael Richard Blais, with other current wrestlers such as “The Omen” Gabriel, Sheik Shabaz, Chris Steele, Duke Durango and Richie Rage.

“Racing and Wrestling” will be held Saturday, July 21 at EIR, just outside Wetaskiwin. Adult tickets are $15, youth (7 – 17 Years) and seniors are $10 and kids 6 years and under are free.

The managers at EIR note that this is a special event and complimentary passes will not be accepted for Racing and Wrestling.
