Pro wrestlers from Japan to grapple in the Okanagan

Japanese wrestlers invade

Japanese-style professional wrestling will make its way to the Okanagan for a pair of shows in West Kelowna and Penticton later this week.

Okanagan-based Thrash Wrestling will host the events Friday and Saturday.

The visit by the Japanese wrestlers, led by legendary Asian Coogar, follows a similar trip by local Thrash Wrestling to Japan earlier this month.

"Going to Japan was one of the highlights of my career as a wrestler and a promoter," says Thrash Wrestling promoter Nick Szalanski.

"This is definitely one of the most exciting weekends in Okanagan wrestling. The wrestlers coming from Japan led by Asian Cooger are extremely talented. I've witnessed it first hand, we're in for a good fight."

The shows, dubbed "Attack of the Rising Sun," will be held Friday at the Westbank Lions Hall, followed by "All the Rage," Saturday at the Luso Canadian Multicultural Centre in Penticton.

Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at ticketseller.ca.
