Arts & Entertainment

PICTOU – Prepare for an evening of fun, laughs and of course, a whole lot of booing.

May 27 is shaping up to be another night of great professional wrestling suitable for the whole family at Pictou’s Hector Arena.

“It will be an action-packed night of entertainment; safe for the whole family to enjoy and it’s all for the Pictou Lobster Carnival,” says event organizer Ryan Mader.

All funds raised from the event will go toward this year’s carnival taking place July 8 through 10.

Last year, Kowboy Mike Hughes defeated Titus to win the coveted Lobster Cup in the tournament final. He returns this year as the current Heavyweight Champion of Prince Edward Island. Also returning, fresh off his latest European tour, is international wrestling star The American Patriot.

“With so much great talent coming, the wrestling fans of Pictou County are in for a huge treat,” notes Mader. “We’ve been able to sign one of the top talents in Canada to be part of this card”

The “Redneck Renegade” Cody Deaner is no stranger to big matches, once facing Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle in a match for WWE Television. Deaner was also a member of the TNA Wrestling roster and currently appears worldwide with Global Force Wrestling.

“I’m looking forward to just giv’er with all the fans in Pictou,” explains Deaner.

“And of course, giving my opponent a DDT and pinning them one, two, three!”
Deaner learned his devastating finishing move from its creator, WWE Legend, Jake the Snake Roberts.

Returning as well this year is the first Lobster Cup winner, Riddick Stone, along with maritime legend Wildman Gary Williams and local grappler Lincoln Steen plus many more!
