Battleground 5 This Thursday!

Great Canadian Wrestling (GCW) returns to the Legion in Oshawa Thursday, May 26, 2011 with the 5th presentation of their annual Battleground show. Every year this event sees titles on the line, feuds brought to a head and the fans of GCW treated to spectacular wrestling action.

This year Battleground 5 features 3 championship bouts (one a Street Fight) a Grudge Match, a Mystery Tag Team Match (featuring international stars The Super Smash Brothers) AND the GCW debut of a wrestling crab!

Check out this scheduled line-up:


After barely escaping by the skin of his teeth with the championship, RJ City has another challenger lined up with his sights on the title. Former WWE-ECW Superstar Shawn Spears has had his chances at the GCW National Championship, but has come up short. This time he feels he can get the job done and leave Oshawa on May 26th with gold around his waist. But RJ City is known to keep the championship by any means necessary. Will RJ be able to cheat his way out or will Shawn Spears leave Battleground V finally the new GCW Canadian National Champion?!


After winning the annual W.I.L.D Women’s tournament in November, Gabriella finally gets her hands on the champion Anthony Darko. But this contest will be in a no holds barred street fight!! Anything goes in this one. Will Darko’s 15 month title reign come to an end, or will the champ’s reign continue further with the help of Primo Scordino and Selizya Sparx??


“The Sport” Jessy Jones hasn’t had a lot of luck in GCW’s tag team ranks as of late, with KC Andrews moving across the country. So Jessy has decided to take a new approach and has made an open challenge to the GCW locker room for someone to step up and accept the opportunity to be his tag team partner. But they will have quite the task ahead of them, as they take on ROH / CHIKARA / IWS veterans, The Super Smash Brothers. Player Uno and Player Dos – and with a vast array of double team moves, will Jessy and his mystery partner be able to get by the daredevil tag team from Quebec?!


GCW fans have seen a drastic change in the attitude of New-Skool Champion Jayson Cypruss in recent months. The former high-flying superstar Xtremo has taken to corporate sponsorship, and is living proof that money talks. But Johnny Wave looks to make the champ put his money where his mouth is, as he challenges him for the championship. Is Wave the next evolution of high-flyer? And will it be enough to leave Oshawa with championship gold?!


The hatred has been building for months between these two men. Finally on May 26th, all scores shall be settled. One on one for the first time in GCW – The Russian Bear goes one on one with Rico Montana. This began when Jamie Virtue stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and received a chokeslam for his troubles. This brought Boris Brezhnev into the picture – and Virtue thought he had a trick up his sleeve, using his power to make Rico’s match on March 17th a handicap match. It was unsuccessful and Rico wanted payback. Later that evening, as Boris was dissecting Buck Gunderson in their match, Rico Montana appeared at the entranceway long enough for Buck to score a roll up and pin the Russian Bear!! Virtue and Boris were irate!! Virtue screamed that revenge was headed for Rico and made the challenge for this grudge match!! Will The Legion be able to withstand the impact as these two big men collide in Oshawa?!?


This one is a special treat for GCW fans, as Bastian Snow comes in, and he is quite the guest, as he is wrestling’s first and only wrestling crab!! But he’s going to take on some stiff competition in GCW rings, as Primo Scordino and Buck Gunderson aren’t pushovers. Primo is a veteran in the ring and can find many ways to make you wish you were back swimming in the ocean. And don’t be fooled by the Entertainer, as Buck Gunderson is on a winning streak in GCW and looks to continue that against the Italian and the Crustacean!!

Rage Entertainment / Big Time Pro Wrestling
Live Pro Wrestling in Bourget
Bourget, Ontario
Bourget Recreational Center
Ring Announcer: Johnny Lucious
Referees: Alex Hatfield, Jeff Miniata
Results credit: Peter Bisson

1st Match: Royal Rumble (12 participants)

Order of elimination: Crimson X – Drake Styles – Majic Mario – Aliah Bowers – Frank The Beast – Razz Monsour – Le Crow Lee Norris – Zakk Manson – The Rush – Yves Drouin – 2 men remaining – Dave Titan and Pierre Khourey were to compete in a match, and since Dave is the RE Big Time Pro Wrestling Champ, the bout was declared a title match.

2nd Match: Dave Titan beat “Pure and Proud” Pierre Khourey

A power struggle between 2 relatively equal opponents, but in the end it was Titan who prevailed with a spear.

3rd Match: Crimson “X” beat “The Supreme Superstar” Drake Styles

Call it a major upset for Drake or a major victory for Crimson “X”, despite Drake using every cheating method in the book, Crimson jolted Drake’s spine using a double kneeplant resulting in his biggest win.

4th Match: Majic Mario Bryant beat Aliah Bowers

Doing too much fancy stuff (including the moonwalk) could have been costly to Mario against an opponent such as Aliah, who was fiercely determined to just beat down and pin his opponent, but it was Mario who got the pin with his feet on the ropes.

5th Match: Frank “The Beast” Bradley beat “Le Crow” Lee Norris

Let’s just say this was not a match for those with a weak bladder – think about a slapstick style comedy mortal combat match between Rayden and Blanka and you get the idea. The Beast beat Lee Norris with a spinebuster.

6th Match: “The Freak” Zakk Manson beat The Rush

From a wrestling point of view, a very good hard hitting match with plenty of decent spots – a loss was almost imminent for Zakk, but he managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat resulting in a huge pop.

7th Match: “The Steel Warrior” Yves Drouin beat Razz Monsour

Although Yves was facing a crafty opponent who used every dirty trick in the book, Yves raw power proved irresistable as he soundly defeated Razz with a running powerslam, resulting in the biggest pop of the evening from an obviously pro-steel warrior crowd!

Overall an enjoyable evening, and a far better crowd than last night in Carleton Place, especially when you consider Bourget has a much smaller population than Bourget. It is quite obvious which wrestler is the ticket seller, if Yves Drouin could draw this same crowd to Ottawa shows in addition to the regular fans, that would be decent boost. It also seems that Rage Entertainment turns the volume up considerably more on the action in their events in Bourget.
