PHOTOS: Thrash Wrestling comes back to Kamloops

Following a successful show in May, Thrash Wrestling returned to Kamloops on Saturday (July 27) for another round of punches, piledrivers and pinfalls.

While the crowd at Moccasin Square Gardens was smaller than their spring show, promoter Justin Griffore was pleased with the turnout.

"Summertime draws are always hard no matter what you're doing, but it's actually more than we expected," he says.

In fact, they've been so happy with Kamloops, they announced another show will be coming in September.

As for how the action was received by locals, those in attendance were thrilled with the product. Ryan Demers has been to a bunch of independent wrestling shows in Saskatchewan, seeing companies like High Impact and CWE, but this was his first Thrash show. 

"I'm a very harsh critic, anytime I see guys without real boots, that's a big no-no for me," he says. "It's nice to see guys with real gear here and see (wrestlers) that are actually going to gym and doing their squats. It's been pretty good so far."

This weekend was also the first time in their 15-year history that Thrash had a professional film crew record their events. So even if you missed out, you may get to see the show on TV soon. 

Until then, enjoy our photo gallery.
