British Bombshells Triple-Threat Preview

Tomorrow's British Bombshells debut match will have some explosive results as Leah Von Dutch not only goes up against the talented Violet O'Hara, but also the dazzling Lana Austin! This decision came about after a few nasty words between LVD and Lil' Miss Violet. Add the addition of the talented Lana Austin and her Kiss of Death, it is sure to be an all out war!

This was the official reason why Ms. Austin was added to the mix, from the kind folks at the British Bombshells; “It was an easy decision to make. Lana Austin is an exciting new talent and we're hoping for big things from her in 2014!" And with those words, we couldn't agree more.

The British Bombshells will officially make their debut next year, but this show is just a taste of what's to come! We're excited to associate ourselves with a new promotion, and it will be one amazing ride!

Mad Dog Forever: The Legacy Of Maurice “Mad Dog" Vachon

Today the wrestling world lost an icon as Maurice “Mad Dog" Vachon, one of the most famous names in Montreal wrestling history, has passed away. He was 84 years old. The Vachons are a legendary family in wrestling and his brother Paul “The Butcher" Vachon, his sister Vivian, and his niece Luna made their mark in the business.

A 5-time American Wrestling Association World Champion, Mad Dog is one of the biggest heels in pro wrestling, as well a the most skilled wrestler in the business in the golden years. A former Olympic wrestler for Canada, Vachon brought a new breed of technical wrestling and a new level of brutality in wrestling. He can choke people out with strings, ropes, and who knows what else; he can bite anybody of he wanted to; and knock opponents out cold with the dreaded piledriver, which is illegal these days.

In 1987, Vachon was struck real bad in a hit-and-run accident causing his leg to be amputated. He did make many appearances in the Wrestling industry, most notably WWE. Most recently he represented the Vachon family as nCw Femme Fatales paid homage to his niece Luna and his sister Vivian.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Vachon family during this time of sorrow. The Mad Dog will be terribly missed by legions of fans everywhere, including Montreal and beyond.

A Tribute To Roland Alexander

Today we lost a California wrestling icon as Roland Alexander, the man who put All Pro Wrestling on the map in northern California, has died.

In 1991, All Pro Wrestling made its debut in the California wrestling scene. And since then, talented individuals have either got their start or continued their careers in APW. In 1999 the promotion was featured in the movie Beyond The Mat. Mr. Alexander deserves credit where credit is due, and he has earned every single one of them.

In the history of APW, names like John Cena, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Adam Pearce, Cheerleader Melissa, Sara Del Rey, Christina Von Eerie, Awesome Kong, Colt Cabana, Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, and many others have had their success in APW, and their careers have reached new heights when they left. Mr. Alexander deserves great credit for the development of these successful names.

His contributions to the sport will always be remembered for many years to come and he will be terribly missed in the years to come.
