WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi headlining Abbotsford wrestling show

Pacific Pro Wrestling’s second show set for Friday night at Air Cadet Building

Pacific Pro Wrestling returns to Abbotsford on Friday night its Spring Fever show, and a World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famer is on the card.

Former Intercontinental and tag team champion Rikishi makes his first-ever appearance in the Fraser Valley, and the 400 pound plus wrestler is set to compete in the show’s main event.

The 2015 WWE hall of fame inductee joins forces with Abbotsford’s Todd Quality and Jamie Diaz to take on the trio of Shreddz, Marty Sugar and Adam Ryder.

It all goes down inside the Air Cadets Building, with a bell time of 7:30 p.m.

Rikishi is a member of the famous Anoa’i family, and is the cousin of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as well as the father of current WWE tag team The Usos.

The event, the second show in PPW history, features a number of talents from the first show, but also some debuting for the promotion.

Women’s action sees Scarlett Black take on Maddison Miles, and returning stars Tony Baroni and Elliot “Beef Boy” Tyler also square off.

Tag team competition features the returning Voros Twins battling DTA. Eli Surge challenges Miles Deville and Dave Turner takes on Charlie Winston.

A VIP meet and greet session for the show begins at 6:45 p.m., and the doors officially open at 7 p.m. The event is also raising money for the Abbotsford Special Adventurers group.

An after-party for the show occurs at The Great Canadian Brewhouse at Highstreet Shopping Centre.
