The Headlines:

WWE Network to air documentary on long-lost Hart/Magee

  • The Quest for the Holy Grail has finally reached completion. Following this evening’s (May 13) Monday Night RAW, the WWE Network will air the legendary match between Bret Hart vs. Tom Magee, with an accompanying documentary entitled “The Holy Grail: The Search for WWE’s Most Infamous Lost Match.” For years, the tape was thought to be lost; however, it was discovered earlier this year and has slowly been making the rounds since. Hart vs. Magee took place in Rochester,  New York on October 7, 1986, at a taping of WWF Wrestling Challenge. The match led many – including WWE chairman Vince McMahon – to believe that the organization had found the eventual replacement for Hulk Hogan, due to Magee’s seemingly outstanding performance. However, it was an assessment that turned out to be wrong, with many now citing the high quality of the match to Hart’s in-ring wizardry. The documentary will represent the first chance to watch the full match online.
Millennial Rebels vs. Western Lions Tentatively Set for PWA Adrenalize

  • The Lions are back in Edmonton. Well, tentatively back. Both Michael Richard Blais and Brandon Van Danielson made surprise appearances at last week’s PWA Mayhem in Calgary, mere weeks after Van Danielson was absent during an assault of Blais at the hands of the Millennial Rebels. Blais has been coy about the duo’s future in the PWA since being brutalized at PWA Adrenalize by the duo of Kenneth Anthony and Colton Kelly, with MRB only confirming an appearance in Edmonton at PWA Night of Champions for a previously-announced match against Teddy Hart of the New Hart Foundation. However, that hasn’t prevented PWA Edmonton commissioner Thaddeus Archer III from booking a match between the Western Lions and Millennial Rebels, tentatively set for this weekend. Will the most dominant duo in PWA history make their anticipated return to the City of Champions? Or, have the Millennial Rebels finally gotten the best of their veteran foes?
“Spaceman” Beri Grayson chases championship gold

  • Beri Grayson may not be the longest-tenured wrestler on the Albertan independent scene, but the Spaceman is making the most of his opportunities over the past week. Last Friday, Grayson took “The Viking Lord” Vince Austin to the limit in an RCW Commonwealth Championship match in Gibbons, Alberta. While, unfortunately, failing to capitalize on his opportunity, it was announced on Sunday that Grayson will challenge “The Thickness” Reid Matthews for the PWA Mayhem Championship in a 2-out-of-3 falls match at this weekend’s PWA Adrenalize. It’s been a stellar few months since Grayson’s PWA debut; now, he gets the chance to prove himself on his biggest stage yet.

Once stood in front of Cedric Alexander in line at a hotel. Slightly big deal.
