WWC On T.V.

 

WWC will be part of the most recent episode of the HBO TV series Less Than Kind. 

Several WWC wrestlers participated in the filming of this popular TV show which is shot in Winnipeg and will be aired later this year. WWC wrestlers provided background wrestling and worked as extras portraying High School students in a number of scenes. Caleb, Seth, Reza, Samara and Sam were all on the set. 

In this episode, the leading character decides to join the High School wrestling team. The producers of the show approached WWC to assist them. We provided technical assistance, coaching and  equipment as well as wrestlers for this production. Check out the WWC logo on posters throughout the episode.

The Wrestling Season is finally resuming as we prepare for the St. Paul's Tournament which will take place on Feb.11 and 12. We have a number of new, experienced wrestlers who are chomping at the bit to get going in the adult division.
