I'm in Montreal until the 5th or 6th of July and was wondering if you knew of any shows coming up? I have very OLD relatives out here who don't know of any sporting events outside baseball so it's difficult to find this stuff out.
At the risk of turning this into a chatboard, I suspect that the reason that cfgb is doing this and why he never answered the e-mail that I sent him is that he is cut off from his e-mail.
Plus this way I get to prove that I wasn't pulling initials out of my ass for my last column.
FLQ (Federation Lutte Quebecoise), every Friday, doors open at 7:30 pm, 5945 Cartier near Rosemont metro Click Here Remember *hiss* FLQ=EVIL

WTA (No freaking clue) next show is Friday, June 29th, 7:30, Eglise St-Charles, Metro Charlevoix. They also hold practices every Saturday from 8am to 12 noon. Not sure how excited they would be about someone crashing the practice though. Click Here
PWF (Professional Wrestling Federation) which to me is like calling your dairy company "MILK" haven't announced their next show, but the english version of their web-site is a babel-fish laff-riot Click Here
ICW (Inter Championship Wrestling) every Saturday at 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm), 3420 Parthenais Click Here
ICW incidentally is running a cross-promotion show with CCW, a Quebec promotion, called "Friends or Enemis" (sic) (so close and yet so far) Friday, June 29th. There is a bus leaving Montreal 2:15 pm from Place Versailles, going to Quebec. Cost of the bus and the ticket to the show is $25.00. send info to Voayge@info-Lutte.com
See, I wish we had that much to choose from down here in Arkansas. All we get is GCW (Galaxy Championship Wrestling) about twice a year that no one wants to go to and a WWE show every so often that I can never get to.
And might I add, Zim, that your new tag was worth quite a smile and a chuckle to a fan of The Prisoner. Excellent.
Anyway, a million thank yous for the links to those shows. I'll probably scoot out on Friday night to check it out assuming I ever figure out how this whole subway thing works. I had a hard enough time finding Concordia!
I agree that it's a crying shame that the Austin situation got to the point where it did. I *don't* think that what Austin did was right, but I also wonder how much culpability there is on the WWE side.
