Pro wrestling coming back to Pictou

Published on May 18, 2017

PICTOU – Like a DDT from Jake the Snake, pro wrestling will hit the Shiretown hard on May 26.

"It's the fourth year we've done this and the support Pictou County shows to both the Pictou Lobster Carnival and the athletes in the ring is outstanding," says Ryan Mader, event organizer.

“The crowd in Pictou rivals any other venue in the Maritimes, maybe even the country.”

Former P.E.I. champion ‘Kowboy’ Mike Hughes, a 20-year-veteran in the ring, is a hard-hitting throwback to wrestlers of yesteryear, and will be part of the lineup in Pictou. Hughes is as tough as they come between the ropes although, outside the ring, he’s known for his many charitable efforts.

Titus, ‘The East Coast Predator,’ has his sights set on claiming the trophies. As the current New Brunswick champ, he aims to prove himself as one of the top talents in the world.

“Championship gold, trophies and cash prizes are all things that I collect with my talents,” Titus said.

“I’m the baddest man in the Maritimes and I can go toe to toe with any punk who steps in that ring.”

The wrestling event will also include appearances by local grappler Lincoln Steen, The X-fit Beast Kirk Aube, crowd pleaser Chip Chambers among others.

The doors for the family-friendly event open at 6 p.m. for advance ticket holders, with the show beginning at 7 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at Big Al's Convenience in New Glasgow, the Lyons Brook Rite Stop, Millside General Store, Woody's Variety and East End Grocery for $10 for seniors and children 12 and under or $12 for adults. Tickets at the door are $15.

Funds raised from the event go toward the Pictou Lobster Carnival taking place July 7-9.
