EDMONTON, AB: One of Alberta’s finest wrestlers will be making their way down south in the near future.
As confirmed in a Facebook post earlier this week, “The Omen” Gabriel Lestat will be making his Mexican debut in the near future. While few details could be announced at press time, it can be confirmed that Lestat’s tenure will last a number of months, all-but-guaranteeing that this Saturday’s appearance for the PWA in Calgary will be his last for an extended period of time.
“Not knowing anyone down there, yet knowing that I will be in good hands makes this experience (which has taken a lot of courage deep inside to do) is also filled with excitement,” said Lestat in his announcement. “The support I’ve been shown by friends, family and fellow in-ring colleagues has been overwhelming.
“I can’t put into words my gratitude for those that have shown understanding and support towards me, in this time of personal growth.”
Lestat has earned his reputation as one of the top stars in the Albertan independent scene since making his wrestling debut in 2005. Over the course of his nearly 15-year career, the Omen has become one of the most popular wrestlers in the province, most notably for the Prairie Wrestling Alliance. In addition to his time in the PWA, Lestat has worked for Real Canadian Wrestling and Canadian Wrestling’s Elite to rave reviews. 2019 has been a kind year to the Omen, with his Mexican debut coming off the heels of a successful match teaming with “Leaping” Lanny Poffo in Red Deer. Additionally, earlier this year, Gabriel faced off with then-ROH TV Champion Jeff Cobb at PWA’s 18th-Anniversary show.
Thus far, no opponents or promotions have been confirmed for Lestat’s Mexican tenure.
