SHAWVILLE July 14, 2018
Men in tights held others in chokeholds while shouts of “Use the chair!” rang out from the crowd on Saturday night, as old school, high energy wrestling matches took over the Shawville Arena.
Featuring seven fights and nearly two hours of entertainment, the Classic Championship Wrestling (CCW) show was a hit amongst the attendees, all the while supporting this year’s Shawville Fair.
“It’s been a long time since hosting a wrestling event,” said Josey Bouchard, first vice president of the Shawville Fair and event organizer. “We did [have this] many, many moons ago and thought it’d be nice for the community.”
Jay McDonald, CCW owner, said their shows are all about the fans, as in getting them pumped up and involved with their shows. Featuring good guys and bad guys, clean and dirty fighting, lots of name-calling and plenty more classic wrestling stunts, the wrestlers were there to give everyone a good time.
