Barrie Wrestling set to power slam 100th live show Saturday

General admission tickets still available for BW 100: Ahead by a Century event on Ferris Lane

Barrie Wrestling celebrates 100 live shows with a Saturday card that will deliver like the other 99 — stacked full of hard-hitting action, fun and excitement.

The city’s best form of family-friendly entertainment will host BW 100: Ahead by a Century, this Saturday, March 2 at 49 Ferris Lane and while front- and second-row seats have long been sold out, there are general admission tickets still available.

Barrie Wrestling began Nov. 1, 2014 and has been part of the downtown Barrie Canada Day celebrations, Kempenfest weekend, a couple of shows in Orillia, some nightclub events at Mavricks Music Hall and the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.

The 100 shows being celebrated are only the events held at the Ferris Lane Community Church. Taking nearly two years off during COVID also pushed this anniversary to this date.

Saturday’s event will feature eight matches, which include two championship matches and a Rock 95 Scramble match, where the winner gets a shot at a championship at a later show. Three Pistols champion Vaughn Vertigo will defend his title against former NXT UK star Amir Jordan while Barrie Wrestling heavyweight champion ‘Clutch’ Jessie V takes on challenger Brent ‘Money’ Banks.

Current TNA star Jody Threat returns to her home promotion and the company she started with, and will be in action, much to the delight of her many fans.

Fresh off her 2023 Match of the Year award (with former NXT UK star Trent Seven), Alexia Nicole takes on Judas Icarus, who flies in from B.C. for the match.

Local stars like the Hometown Hero Van Landon and the Elite Athlete Nova will hit the ring as will the much-hated Royal Family, led by Shilo and Kyle Boone.

Domino’s Pizza, pop and chips will be available for purchase, as will Barrie Wrestling merchandise and that of the wrestlers.

As are all Barrie Wrestling shows, Saturday will be filmed for international streaming service IWTV.

Saturday’s event will have a big announcement regarding the April 13 show, the first one after WrestleMania, and tickets on sale for the event at the concession stand.

With front-row and second-row reserved tickets gone, general admission seats are available by contacting Barrie Wrestling on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email ([email protected]).

General admission tickets ($20) can also be purchased at OMG Games and Doug Laurie Sports and Auctions.

Barrie Wrestling shows run monthly with festival shows taking place over the summer months.

Some shows and matches can be found on the YouTube channel as well as IWTV.
