www.sasktourism.com for hotel discounts and attraction listings. [EDITOR'S NOTE: We hope to have regular reports from Jason Clevett on the scene as well.] BC-based Juggernaut, a POW regular, is looking forward to the week-long event. "It's a big deal for sure, when you bring in this kind of talent to one place it is going to be an amazing series of shows." Juggernaut is expected to continue his ongoing feud with Crash Crimson, as well as have a rematch from a NHB show against Sabu. "I'd love to face Sabu again. We beat the hell out of each other in April when we fought in Thunder Bay, it would be fun to do it again and tear the house down." For the most part, top draws like Sabu and Lynn will be wrestling in the evening shows because that will be when the most people will be there. Fans who miss a match will have the opportunity to see their favorites battle again. "There will be repeat matches, so if people miss out on a match, like myself vs. Juggernaut, we will go at it more than once. Not twice in one day, neither of us could handle that because I‚d kick his ass," said Crimson. "Yeah right," retorted Juggernaut. "Ask him who‚s gotten the worst of the beatings the last few times we‚ve locked up?" For fans of Wavell Starr, the Ex gives them one last chance to see him in action. The 'First Nation Sensation' departs for the WWE-affiliate OVW in September but promises that the fans will see something special. "You can expect me to be in the best shape of my career. I've been training very hard in preparation for my time in Louisville. Also, you will notice that my style may have been influenced even more so than before from the many hours I have been spent studying old school tapes." Starr is looking forward to the opportunity to face a diverse amount of talent. "I am very excited. I always enjoy working with veterans due to the learning experience, but I also enjoy working with younger guys like myself that want to have a good match. Either way, I believe Don Callis is in charge of the match making so the shows will be very entertaining. Crimson is happy to have Starr on the show. "Wavell Starr is tremendous. If anyone in Sask is going to make it, it‚s him. He doesn‚t have a swelled head and he has zeroed in on what he wants. He tapes his matches and listens to what people tell him. He‚s going to learn a lot on these shows; we all are." This is also a big opportunity for young POW stars to learn from and possibly even lock up with the veterans. POW has many homegrown talents who see the Ex as another opportunity to grow. In addition to the in ring action and the autograph session, Joe Aiello's The Jabroni Store will be making its way to the Ex this year to sell not only POW merchandise, but WWE merchandise as well. An official WWE merchandise vendor, they will have everything from T-shirts to replica WWE Belts. Crimson has high hopes for the series of shows and what it can do to boost the fledgling promotion. "We have a lot of talent who want to work for us, we are going to show not just Saskatoon, but the people who come from out of town, what we have to offer. Hopefully they will like what they see, and will be back for more." Jason Clevett lived for two years in the beautiful city of Saskatoon and just moved back to Calgary. He is looking forward to returning for the Exhibition.

POW brings stars to Saskatoon
By JASON CLEVETT -- SLAM! Wrestling


The high-flying Sabu.

The shows are going to run three times a day, at 4, 7 and 9 p.m., for one hour. The idea behind that is to allow as many people to see the show as possible. "I know it doesn‚t cater to our normal fans," said Crimson. "What we and the Prarieland Exhibition want to do is entertain the people that are there, and draw a few more from the big names that are wrestling."

That plan seems to be paying off. Wrestling fans from Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Regina and many places in between are planning road trips to take in some of the action. While there they can partake in other activities like free concerts, riding the midway, or checking out the Fringe Festival and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan off the Ex site.

"That's great if it boosts tourism. Saskatoon is a fantastic city and if people come here and see that, they will want to come back again," said Crimson. Those making the trip would want to check out www.sasktourism.com for hotel discounts and attraction listings.
