Pure Power Wrestling returned to the Fritz Sick Memorial Centre gym for the first time in two years on Saturday night in front of strong turnout of fans.
“Well, tonight we got a five-match card,” said Jim Dandy, PPW ring announcer.
“This is our first time back to the Fritz Sick Centre. We haven’t been here for a couple of years – COVID passed – but, yeah, we’ve got an exciting evening of professional wrestling entertainment for our crowds here. Great crowd already – very loud, very vocal – and we’re very excited to be here.”
Dandy said PPW brings in some of the finest professional wrestlers in Alberta.
“We try to provide the best family fun we can,” said Dandy.
Dandy added on what the wrestlers do to provide the entertainment, “It’s kind of like the bad guys want you to boo them; the good guys want you to cheer them.”
“There’s a performance that goes on,” said Dandy.
“The boys are giving all that they can to entertain the crowd.”
Once a tour is wrapped up PPW will host some spot shows and Power Slam TV on Facebook.
“Every week we produce a 30-minute show that produces and keeps the angles, the storylines going,”
“So, our fans join us on social media mostly. Shaw Cable – they air our half-hour show Power Slam TV. So I think we get to a lot of people. Our coverage is pretty good,” said Dandy.
PPW’s main shows are in Lethbridge on the third Saturday of the month, and they do tours around southern Alberta.
PPW was operating at the Pure Power Academy under the REP program during COVID.
“We lost a lot of our crowd,” he said.
“Again, circumstances or whatever. Some aren’t comfortable with vaccinations.”
The next Lethbridge show with be PPW’s 11th anniversary on April 30.
