You didn't think we were taking the summer off did you?

Canadian Wrestling's Elite is ecstatic to officially announce the 2018 Elite 8 Tournament going down in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Saturday, August 4th in what will go down as "The World's Strongest Summer" in CWE history!

Not only will the most prestigious tournament in Canadian wrestling go down live on this special long weekend event in conjunction with The Brickhouse Gym it will also host the first announced independent wrestling appearance of the just recently inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry!

And well... that's just "sexual baby". From debuting in 1996 after success in the US Olympics in power lifting and weightlifting Mark Henry would go on to be an immediate force in the then World Wrestling Federation battling wrestling icon Jerry "The King" Lawler in his first high profiled feud,

From there "The World's Strongest Man" would go on to have a 20+ WWE career with some lifelong memorable rolls such as his time in the Nation Of Domination, as "Sexual Chocolate" and his exploits with Chyna and Mae Young that led to the birth of a hand on live television, to winning the ECW World Championship, his pinnacle as WWE World World Heavyweight Champion, and of course just months ago being inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year.

Mark Henry will be on hand at the annual Elite 8 tournament for a special meet and greet at the event as well as making a very special appearance on the live event in a role to still be determined by CWE management. Regardless, it is safe to say, "somebody gonna get their ass kicked!".

The Elite 8 is the pinnacle of the elite in CWE on a year to year basis and a wrestling purist's dream event as 8 of the best in ring competitors battle it out in a one night tournament to be declared the winner. This will be the 5th year of the tournament with previous year's won by CWE Icon "The Zombie Hunter" MENTALLO, CWE Grand Slam Champion "Bad Boy" Anderson Tyson Moore, EVOLVE & DDT Star Jason "The Gift" Kincaid, & New Japan Pro Wrestling & Bullet Club Star "The Crown Jewel" Chase Owens.

If those four winners aren't impressive enough it is even more impressive to think they have done it in tournaments with the likes of NXT's Kassius Ohno (Chris Hero), "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels, "The Metal Head Rebel" Frankie Kazarian, "The Last Real Man" Silas Young, Former TNA X Division Champion Johnny Devine, & current CWE Champion "Hotshot" Danny Duggan all having competed in the tournament in the past.

Who will be the next to break from the pack and be elitist of the elite?

And we're not done stacking this announcement!

CWE is very excited to announce for the first time ever professional wrestling will be hosted at the iconic Palomino Club for a special 18+ licensed event!

The Palomino Club is "World Famous" and the go to place for sports & entertainment celebrity entertainers from around the world when they stop in Winnipeg and now due to the new location professional wrestling will be hosted in partnership with a place held in the memories and hearts of every Winnipegger!
