Grand Prix restarts Aug. 11


By GREG OLIVER -- SLAM! Wrestling

Grand Prix Wrestling is back after a summer hiatus and starts up again on Friday, August 11 in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

The four-week tour will include names like Kurrgan, Hans Schultz, Bobby Rude, Todd 'The Bod' Douglas, Buddy Lane, Dr. X, Rene E. Dupre. 'Bad Boy' Eddie Watts will also be returning to the area after a number of stints in years past, as will the midgets.

The two headliners from the previous part of the tour, Wildman Austin and Chi Chi Cruz, are not 100% confirmed. Austin may be in during the second week. Cruz said in an interview that he wants to come in, but it doesn't look like he'll be able to come to a financial agreement with Dupre to make it worth his while to come in from his Winnipeg home. "I love being on the road out there," Cruz said.

Besides the announced towns, Dupre plans to run more towns like Springhill, Doak Town, Saint John, Lamecque, maybe even into eastern Quebec.

Bobby Rude has been the star of the show so far according to Dupre, explaining that wrestling every day has done wonders for him. "There's a guy there, years ago he would have made it in any territory -- and right now, that guy's good enough to go to WWF or WCW. That guy is talent. Nobody's seen him."
