CWF Canada invades Niagara Falls

No Comments

From Niagara This Week:

Over the years Niagara Falls has always been a popular destination for honeymoons and professional wrestling.

From the years of Tony “Cannonball” Parisi, Neo Spirit Pro Wrestling’s monthly shows at the old Polish Hall on Stanley Avenue, and the WWE retail store on Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls has always been a staple in the professional wrestling business.

On Saturday, August 12, professional wrestling returns to Niagara Falls as CWF Canada invades the Scotiabank Convention Centre with an action packed card inside of the Fallsview Theatre at 7:00 pm.

While the card is still being established, some of the early names for this event feature some of the very best in professional wrestling today.

Former WWF superstar Paul London will be in attendance as he takes on “Reckless” Ryan Swift in what will be a hard-hitting and fast-paced contest.

Convention centre growing in popularity

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Canada’s dominant leisure destination has also become the best meeting destination, says Noel Buckley, president and general manager of the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

“We are the dominant leisure destination in Canada, generating more international demand than any other leisure destination in the country,” Buckley recently told Niagara Falls city council as he updated politicians on how the Stanley Avenue facility is performing.

“But part of rounding out a destination is becoming a destination that attracts more than one type of visitor. The best leisure destinations in North America are also the best meeting destinations. We have become that.”

He said since opening six years ago, the centre has significantly grown in the number of event days it hosts — from 140 in 2011 to 282 in 2016.

The King of Rock n’ Roll takes centre stage at the Scotiabank Convention Centre this week for a worthy cause.

The musical biography, told through the eyes of Elvis’ business manager, Colonel Tom Parker, details Elvis’ humble beginnings at Sun Records to the Hollywood years and on to the flamboyant Las Vegas residency.

“This is a major production,” said organizer Ken Lamb. “People are going to see an outstanding musical about the life and times of one of the world’s most iconic performers.”

Comic Con gives Star Wars fans something to ‘Chewie’ on

From Niagara This Week:

As an actor, Peter Mayhew has been a part of one of the most successful film franchises of all time.

But you may not recognize him if you met him on the street.

Mayhew, of course, is best known to Star Wars fans as Chewbacca, Han Solo’s wookie sidekick. Fans will get a chance to see the man behind all that hair and makeup when he makes a rare Canadian appearance in Niagara Falls later this year, when Niagara Falls Comic Con takes over the Scotiabank Convention Centre from June 2 to 4.

“There’s no question that Star Wars is hands down the most popular film series of all time, so we couldn’t be more excited to land one of the more well known characters from the movie franchise,” said Chris Dabrowski, Comic Con’s show manager. “This will be a real treat for Star Wars fans of the original and new movies.”
