Ottawa wrestler gets shot with TNA
By TIM BAINES - Ottawa Sun


Devon Nicholson's got plenty on the line with tonight's TNA wrestling show at Gatineau's Robert Guertin Arena. First, he's the promoter ... and needs a big crowd so his wallet isn't a lot lighter.

More importantly, he's getting a TNA tryout. As Hannibal, his wrestling alter ego, the 25-year-old Nicholson will face Abyss in a no-DQ match.

"I'm really looking forward to it," said local boy Nicholson, a former amateur wrestling champ while at Cairine Wilson. "I've been paying my dues for seven years now. It's time to move to the next level.I have the look and I think I have the character."

He promises tonight's match will rock the rafters of The Bob.

"(Abyss) made his name for himself in IWA (in Puerto Rico), just before I got there. Our styles are very similar. We're two guys who don't mind bleeding. We're crazy ... our heads aren't all there."

The main event of tonight's card (7:30 start) is Kurt Angle vs. the talented Christian Cage (with Earl Hebner reffing, TNA is teasing the infamous Montreal screwjob). Also on the card: AJ Styles and Tomko vs. LAX; Robert Roode and Johnny Devine vs. Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal; James Storm vs. Samoa Joe; Jimmy Rave vs. Chris Harris vs. Eric Young; Gail Kim vs. Jackie Moore; and Awesome Kong vs. Ms. Brooks.

There are plenty of tickets available, ranging from $15 to $50. Angle will pose for photos in the ring after the show, while some of the TNA stars will be available for autographs at intermission.

    IN THE NUDES

    There are rumblings Maria will appear in Playboy soon ... There's also word the March Hustler magazine will feature nude photos of the late Nancy Benoit, taken in the mid-1980s. Sick. Very sick ... Ric Flair's career is on the line when he faces Triple H Monday on RAW. If he loses, Flair must quit.
