The Cochrane Fair Presents: Canadian Wrestling’s Elite

August 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Friday, August 16th the Cochrane Fair presents:
Canadian Wrestling’s Elite
“Professional Wrestling At The Fair” !

CWE is the only National Canadian touring professional wrestling promotion currently in existence.
As part of the big show on Friday, August 16th, there will be a match not often seen: The Ladder Match !
The inventor of the infamous ladder match is none other than Cochrane resident and former multi-time Stampede Wrestling North American Heavyweight Champion:
“Cowboy” Dan Kroffat.
Many have thought the first ladder match was in Regina, Saskatchewan pitting the nefarious late great “Bad News” Allen versus the then upstart Bret “The Hitman” Hart, when in fact a number of years prior the first ladder matches pitted Cochrane’s own “Cowboy” Dan Kroffat versus Tor Kamata and subsequently versus the infamous Archie “The Stomper” Gouldie in one of the most famous ladder matches of all time !

“Cowboy” Dan Kroffat will be the special guest referee for the Canadian Wresting’s Elite Ladder Match Friday, August 16th as part of Professional Wrestling at The Cochrane Fair !

Tickets are on sale right now at www.eventbrite.com and at The Venue Bar and Grill in Cochrane located at
79 Railway St., East.
