Well! CWE's Cruel Summer Tour just got a lot more cruel for anyone unfortunate enough to step foot in the ring with the third headline talent slated to join WWF Legend The Warlord and ROH's "Wildhorse" TK O'Ryan of The Kingdom, with the signing of Alberta wrestling legend "Honey Badger" Johnny Devine!
One of the last graduates of the infamous Hart Family Dungeon, the original "Hotshot" of Canadian wrestling, Johnny Devine returns to Alberta in a CWE ring for the first time in over 3 years!
Although a Winnipeg native, Johnny Devine also considers Calgary home as he relocated to the famous wrestling city to begin his wrestling journey and became an instant hit upon his debut.
As a young prospect in the wrestling business Johnny Devine's stock went through the roof while competing for Stampede Wrestling during a time it aired across the country on television as time and time again Devine made the most of his minutes on TV and stole the show, quickly making him a star across the country although primarily competing for Stampede Wrestling in Alberta at the time.
Soon after Johnny Devine would use his newly found super stardom to start traveling across the country and proving he was the top tier of any province or promotion he competed in.
It wouldn't be long after the blue chipper got his big break during the early years of TNA Wrestling as a member of Team Canada and a featured competitor in the industry changing X- Division.
After a near decade with TNA Wrestling Johnny Devine would return to Canada and continue to build his legacy inside and outside of the ring as a main event competitor for top organizations in Ontario, Manitoba, and Alberta.
During his lengthy full time stays in each province Johnny Devine made his foot print in the future of Canadian wrestling by training countless of this generation's top stars you are seeing excelling today.
Johnny Devine is loved across the country but arguably that love is no greater in the province of Alberta and he returns to compete on four events in what is sure to be a highly anticipated homecoming for fans of today and yesteryear.
Those competing against Devine on the other hand will have no love for "The Honey Badger" who has the reputation of being one of the most hard hitting, smash mouth, take no s*** competitors to ever lace up the boots who prides himself on "stretching" opponents he feels don't match up to his standard and don't deserve to share a ring with him. It will be a cruel summer indeed for those across the ring from Aug 14th-17th!See "Honey Badger" Johnny Devine on the following events,
