Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling returns to the Velox Rugby Club house Friday night (Jan. 30).

Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling returns to the Velox Rugby Club house Friday night (Jan. 30).

After a lengthy break recovering from injury, the Lord’s Warrior Lak Siddartha will anchor the event with a revenge match against Eddy Osborne and his scoundrel of a manager, Father Juan Valdez.

Not to be trusted, Father Juan and Osborne illegally clubbed the Lord’s Warrior to within an inch of a career ending injury. Three months later, Siddartha has waged war on Father Juan Valdez.

The show will feature a long list of bouts, with the VIPW Tag Title contested between The Von Slashers and their enemies, Billy Suede and Tony Baroni. Scott Steel will face Krofton in the first of a best of five series that will play out in 2015.

Also wrestling but with opponents still unconfirmed is VIPW Champion BJ Laredo and Island favourites Ravenous Randy Myers, Danni Deeds and Kenny Lush.

Doors are at 7, first bell at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 30, 3957 Gordon Head Rd.

Tickets available at Dragon Impact martial arts equipment and supplies, 746 Yates St. $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Kids 5-and-under are free. A separated beer garden is available for ages 19 and older with ID.
