It was another sold-out crowd at The Station on Saturday night to see Smash Wrestling as they made their fourth appearance in the city.
But besides the great wrestling action there was an added bonus to the night as City Councillor Brian White would be stepping into the ring to defend the city in a tag team match with Brent Banks against Sabastian Suave and Anthony Kingdom James. White held his own in the match and even dished out a little punishment of his own to Sabastian Suave.

Every since White helped bring Smash to Sarnia there has been an ongoing feud between White and Suave and that elevated to a full-blown beat down of White at previous events. Well, it was time to step up or shut up, as Kingdom James put it, and our Councillor did just that. The match may not have gone the way that White would have liked but it certainly was an experience.
White and Banks lost to Suave and James but the feud is far from over. Smash announced that they will be returning to Sarnia on March 31st and will be moving to the River City Vineyard on Mitton St. The card will include a River City Street Fight between Banks and Suave with the stipulation that if Banks loses he will be run out of town never to return and Brent Banks answered with the same stipulation but for Anthony Kingdom James.
Other highlights of the night were a title defence by the longest running Smash Wrestling champion Tyson Dux, Dux, who has worked with major organizations like WWE and Impact Wrestling, says it is always a pleasure to come to Sarnia and he can not believe the response they get when they come to town.
Jay Smith, who is the Live Events Coordinator, says they have had a great relationship with the Station for four shows and but the crowds just kept getting bigger and they needed a bigger venue and things just fell into place with River City.
Many of the fans were thrilled to see international performers like Joe Hendry and Mark Haskins and this has lead to the need for the bigger venue. Lead Commentator Scott Hunter says Saturday night’s show wabittersweetet as they say good-bye to the Station but now look forward to returning to a bigger venue
Smash will return on March 31, at the River City Vineyard and of course ticket sales will go in support of the shelter. You can go on line at www.smash-wrestling.com to order tickets or visit the Cheeky Monkey. Watch for Smash Wrestling’s Sarnia event from December on their On Demand service.
