Can-Am hoping to improve in Fort McMurray
By RICHARD WRIGHT -- Fort McMurray Today

Hoping to erase the memory of last year's wrestling debacle, a new organization is getting set to ring the bell in Fort McMurray.

Can-Am Wrestling will showcase a five-match card at Father Patrick Mercredi high school Feb. 25. Can-Am is the newest wrestling federation in Western Canada and is attempting to make gains where Stampede Wrestling couldn't.

The former organization, which was started by the legendary Hart family of Calgary, attempted a comeback last year after a decade away from the spotlight.

The comeback tour brought a fight card through Fort McMurray last February and promptly fell on its face when wrestlers couldn't find the Gregoire Recreation Centre and arrived two hours late.

"The big difference this year is we are organized," said promoter Curtis Phillips. "The last guys who were here were very shoestring and fly-by-night. This year ... it is very professional," he said.

The card will feature a number of localized bouts. The first being the banned to Anzac match featuring Chris Wayne against the Cuban Assassin.

"We hope to sell out the place," said Phillips. "To have a little fun, rock the gym."

Other matches include the British invasion matches and the midget madness matches.

Proceeds from the evening will go towards helping Special Olympic athletes reach their goals.

The card starts at 7 p.m. Ticket will be available the door.
