Lak Siddartha will defend is Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling title in a bout at Velox tonight.

Pro wrestling saga returns to Velox Friday night

Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling's Lak Siddartha will fight tooth and nail to retain his title

In the latest Saanich instalment of the Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling storyline, Lak Siddartha will fight tooth and nail to retain his title at Velox Rugby Club this week

The pro wrestler earned the VIPW championship belt last fall, defeating B.J. Laredo at the same venue. He’s fended off a few different attempts to topple him since, including a gimmick match against Laredo in Duncan. “I still retained the title even though I was left in a bloody mess,” he says.

A Feb. 14 event against No. 1 contender Creator Von Slasher saw him retain the title when both wrestlers were down and the match was thrown out with no winner.

Siddartha faces Scott Steele tonight.

“He’s a high-flier. He’s got the speed advantage that’s for sure,” Siddartha said. “But I’ve got power and size.”

About 12 to 15 wrestlers are expected to hit the ring for a hard-core battle royale where all competitors, with the exception of the two main fighters, will fight to be the last man standing, and become No. 1 contender. Other matches will feature Krofton, Eddie Osbourne, Riea Von Slasher, Cremator, Laredo and more.

The fledgling VIPW launched last September and organizers plan to hold more events as a greater following develops in Victoria.

 

The event is tonight, April 25 in the Velox clubhouse (3957 Gordon Head Rd.). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 at the door.
