Crossfire Wrestling hits another home run
It was another incredible show, both in and out of the ring, this past Sunday for Crossfire Wrestling at the Merritton Community Centre. What may well have been the largest crowd in the relatively brief but storied history of the promotion was on hand for "March Meltdown". For more infor on the matches themselves, you can visit the Crossfire Wrestling website, or better yet, make plans now to be at the next show, Sunday, May 29th at 4 p.m.
Congratulations are in order to the man behind Crossfire Wrestling, Chris Laplante, or as Commissioner Frank Newman referred to him on Sunday, "Mr. Laplante, Director of Talent Relations".
What makes Crossfire so successful? A number of things. First, terrific in-ring talent. And, these guys and gals work their butts off, not only training and perfecting their craft, but by getting involved in the community. Also. they use social media and the Crossfire website extremely well to promote and create a buzz about upcoming shows. We here at Giant FM are proud and pleased to have fostered a relationship with Crossfire that continues to grow.
And they connect with the fans, whether it be the pre-show VIP sessions or the autograph and merchandise tables at the intermissions, fans get to meet the performers up close and personal.
Sunday's crowd was very vocal and very much into the show, and showed some great creativity with the signs many made up. Jay Moore, while being a highly successful manager, is a dastardly dude, as I like to call him "evil incarnate", or as Giant FM's Pat Porter referred to him repeatedly in a recent interview, a "Putz". There were several "Jay Moore Sucks" signs in the crowd, but my favourite read as follows....."Jay Moore listens to Nickelback" As I said, a great show, in and out of the ring.-Chuck
