Wrestling returns to Velox for Friday night rumbler

Second annual Island Rumble by Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling at Velox Friday, Sept. 19.

Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling is celebrating its first anniversary as it returns to Velox Rugby Club for Friday, Sept. 19.

It’s the first VIPW show in Victoria since June 27.

That night, the main event featured a triple threat match between Tony Baroni, BJ Laredo and Cremator Von Slasher, for the chance to fight Saanich’s own Lak Siddartha for the Vancouver Island Championship.

BJ Laredo won, and in a recent match in Port Alberni, a match marred by the evil antics of Siddartha’s then-manager Father Juan Valdez, Laredo took the championship belt.

That leaves us at the one year anniversary show, at which VIPW officials have decided Siddartha will face Eddie Osbourne, with Siddartha’s former manager Father Juan at ring side, and Osbourne’s tag-team partner Scott Steel. Siddartha has been told he can choose a partner, and will pair up with a local mystery wrestler, to be named at the event.

Friday will also feature a women’s Falls Anywhere match with Jaida, KC Spinelli, and Riea Von Slasher.

The main event will be is an over-the-top Island Rumble.

Tickets available at the door, 3597 Gordon Head Rd. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., bell rings at 7 p.m.

There will be a beer garden for those with valid ID.
