It is with great sadness CWE management has to report that
we were contacted by Julie Valentine, the wife of Greg
Valentine informing us that Greg became violently ill last
night and was hopeful he would be feeling better before his
flight this evening but is in need of medical attention and
will not be able to attend this weekend's CWE Legends Of
Wrestling & Professional Sports Convention 2 in Winnipeg.

Luckily CWE has friends in high places and within minutes of
the bad news CWE Legends Of Wrestling 2 headliner Ron
"Faarooq" Simmons saved the day securing the services of one
of the most memorable personalities of all time and Attitude
Era legend D-Lo Brown to replace Valentine!

FLW Heavyweight Champion Mr. Inkredible w/WWE Hall Of Famer
Ron "Faarooq" Simmons vs. CWE Tag Team Champion "The Crazed
Cowboy" Jacob Creed w/WWE Hall Of Famer Barry Windham

WOW! Want to talk about a blockbuster?

The ink is still drying on a HUGE main event signed for the
major live event in conjunction with CWE's Legends Of
Wrestling and it is one of mass proportions.

Two men who are not only top stars in Canadian Wrestling's
Elite in the present moment but two men considered to be two
major players in CWE for years to come as both men as
incredibly successful as they have been have yet to come
anywhere near the peak of their potential will do battle on
February 24th in Winnipeg with arguably no better mentor by
their side to help them reach that potential.

Mr. Inkredible returned to CWE to much popularity on The
Pick Your Poison Tour after a near year hiatus and he
returned in a big way by issuing an accepted challenge by
The Cannon Clan that will potentially see the Confederate
Flag officially gone from CWE.

On February 24th in preparation for that big 6 man tag team
match on June 1st at the 9th Anniversary Show he will get a
warm up match so to speak against one of his opponents on
that night in Jacob Creed.

Full of passion and emotion about the issue Mr. Inkredible
is very serious about ridding The Cannon Clan and their
beliefs from CWE and has the right man to do so in his
corner in Ron Simmons, the first ever African American World
Champion.

Ron Simmons is no stranger to success and more importantly
breaking racial barriers and that is something Mr.
Inkredible is looking to do 25 years after Ron Simmons won
the World Championship.

It won't be an easy task by any means on June 1st or
specifically on Feb 24th as Jacob Creed will have the
guidance of a former World Champion himself and a man
regarded by many as one of the greatest of all time in Barry
Windham.

Jacob Creed is a big, agile cowboy just like Barry Windham
with many similarities drawn to the two of them. If Jacob
Creed is able to tap into Windham's knowledge and experience
this very well could be a break out singles performance and
win for one half of the CWE Tag Team Champions.

We know Inkredible and Creed will be throwing down on
February 24th but if things get out of hand we also know
both Simmons and Windham aren't afraid to throw down either
if need be!

Tag Team Attraction Match
WWE Hall Of Famer Tito Santana & 3x CWE Champion "Hotshot"
Danny Duggan vs. D-Lo Brown & 1st Ever CWE Champion "The
Canadian Crusher" AJ Sanchez

Rumors have been running rampant and it can now officially
be confirmed as the contracts are inked but the first ever
live event held in association with the Legends Of Wrestling
Convention will now host a once in a life time tag team
attraction match!

"Hotshot" Danny Duggan and "The Canadian Crusher" AJ Sanchez
have been battling since CWE's inception and no matter what
direction they go off on in CWE or their careers outside the
organization it always comes back around where these two men
do battle in what is always some of the best produced
matches in company history.

The Legends Of Wrestling is an event to celebrate the
memories the legends appearing have created and on February
24th this match promises to create more!

Former TNA X-Division Champion "Honey Badger" Johnny Devine
vs. Roy "Flash" Gordon

CWE's Pick Your Poison Tour saw Roy "Flash" Gordon "break
out" with two CWE career defining performances against The
Bullet Club's "Crown Jewel" Chase Owens in Winnipeg and
Thunder Bay and those performances have earned him an
opportunity to show he isn't a one hit wonder at CWE's
Legends Of Wrestling on February 24th.

In a match that is not only likely to be a show stealer but
a Match Of The Year candidate if both men are at the very
best they have become to be known for Roy "Flash" Gordon
will challenge former TNA X Division Champion and Stampede
Wrestling Alum "Honey Badger" Johnny Devine.

This match truly is a clash of generations as the hard nosed
and gritty Devine is the absolute opposite of the flamboyant
and flashy Roy Gordon once the bell rings.

Both men present a completely different style of wrestling
than the other but both effective in their own right. One
similarity they both share is their ability to strike and
strike hard and strike fast.

Roy Gordon is a black belt martial artist and has near
crippled men in the CWE locker room with some of his lethal
head kicks. You'll be hard pressed to find someone who is
going to punch you in the face harder than the original
Canadian "Hotshot".

This match guarantees to be nothing short of wrestling magic
and you can likely guarantee one of these men if not both
will paying a visit to the Seven Oaks Hospital just down the
road when these war is over!
