Quick Calls - PWA Adrenalize 2016

00:0000:00

Mike leads the group of The Wrestling Mind Brian Hamilton, Luke "Sanefan" Neilson, and T. James Logan, as they discuss the Prairie Wrestling Alliance Adrenalize Show, from the Northgate Lions Seniors Centre in Edmonton, AB.  A very good show, with Fabian Ribero returning to Edmonton after a month's absence to take on the #1 Contender for the Heavyweight Title, The Perfect Specimen Brett Morgan.  Also a surprising main event that really delivered.

Quick Calls - CWE Back to the Future Tour

Mike is joined by the Wrestling Mind Brian Hamilton as they took part in the Back to the Future Tour show, presented by Canadian Wrestling's Elite, from Millennium Place in Sherwood Park, AB.  Another case of deja vue in a CWE show:  an absolutely fantastic card (with one match that left Mike speechless), with some esthetic issues, and an unlikely assist.

All May shows on the Edmonton Sports Podcast Network are dedicated to the first responders and evacuees of the gigantic forest fires in Northern Alberta.  We encourage everyone to donate what they can to the Canadian Red Cross to help in the relief efforts.  www.redcross.ca

Mike and the Wrestling Mind Brian Hamilton discuss the Fallout Card, presented by the Prairie Wrestling Alliance, from the Onoway Arena, in Onoway, Alberta (Approximately 45 minutes west of Edmonton).  This is one of Mike's favourite cards every year, and on Owen Hart's Birthday, this the the type of card that he would have loved to be a part of, both with the card and the crowd.  Fantastic show, featuring three matches that could be the main event on any card.
