Edmonton Committee Recommends Lifting Ban On Pro Wrestling

Published

on

According to CTV News, the Community and Public Services Committee will recommend council amend its Edmonton Combative Sports Commission Bylaw to remove professional wrestling. Currently, pro wrestling is classified as a combat sport and is regulated in the same way that the MMA is in Edmonton.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the situation, Edmonton instituted a moratorium on combat sports following the 2017 death of Tim Hague after an MMA bout. This bylaw also led to the WWE postponing an event that was booked in Edmonton this past February.

Many on the committee feel that it is not fair for wrestling to follow the same rules and regulations as combat sports. While a decision has yet to be reached on the matter, Councillor Scott McKeen says he would be surprised if the amendment doesn’t pass.

Jason’s Take
Wrestling falling under the combat sport regulation has been heavily debated in Edmonton since the initial ruling was made. Canada is a country rich in its wrestling history and tradition. I’m surprised it took this long for this to be overturned.

#WWEChamber Results: Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush vs. Finn Balor

Published

WWE Elimination Chamber Lio Rush Bobby Lashley Finn Balor

Bobby Lashley defended the Intercontinental Championship along with Lio Rush against Finn Balor in the third match at WWE Elimination Chamber.

Bobby Lashley & Lio Rush dismissed Dasha Fuentes’ claims that Lio is the weak link before the match. The international announce teams (complete with the Mandarin team wearing MATCHING TIES) are working from the higher seats tonight. Lio Rush started the match but immediately tagged out to Bobby Lashley, who started against Finn Balor. Obviously, we’re making tags in this match, so technically we started with three tag team matches (of sorts).

Bobby Lashley had his power on display early on, and Lio Rush finally tagged himself in and immediately missed a Frog Splash. Lashley begged him to tag back out, selling fear over Lio costing him the Intercontinental Championship. That would come to fruition at 9:27 when Balor pinned Lio Rush after taking out Bobby Lashley on the outside, after the Coup De Grace. This is Finn’s first Intercontinental Championship.

Lashley teased turning on Rush, then finally did it, flattening him and walking out on his own.

Finn Balor pinned Lio Rush to win Bobby Lashley’s Intercontinental Championship in 9:27.

WWE Elimination Chamber Shane McMahon The Miz The Usos

The Usos challenged Shane McMahon & The Miz for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship in the second match at WWE Elimination Chamber.

Prior to the match, The Miz & Maryse announced that they are having another baby, their second. As is becoming more of the norm in WWE, both teams got a great pop for their entrances and the crowd was solidly behind all four men early on. As Greg DeMarco noted on Twitter, all four men were working in their merch tonight. That’s marketing!

Shane would connect with a Coast to Coast on one Uso, but ate a superkick on the second courtesy of the other Uso. The pinfall attempt by Jay on Shane was broken up by Miz. Miz hit a slingshot Double Axe Handle, which seemed to surprise even himself.

Miz would later hit a DDT, again showing why his is one of the most underrated in the business. Shane wold later “connect” with an elbow off the top through an Uso on the announce table. Miz then had a pinfall attempt on an Uso, who then rolled into a Crucifix Pin to capture the Smackdown Tag Team Championships, their sixth overall.

The Usos beat Shane McMahon & The Miz in 13:55 to win the Smackdown Tag Team Championships
