Praise the Violence, Saturday, January 26th, 2008

Sylvain Grenier, Maxime Boyer, Kevin Steen and Franky the Mobster. Four very different wrestlers who claim to have four very different motivations. Sylvain Grenier wants to prove that he is the King of Quebec Wrestling. Maxime Boyer wants to prove that he is the best technical wrestler in Canada. Franky the Mobster wants to be taken seriously. And Kevin Steen, Steen wants to kill Manny and if the only way that he gets to do that is to win the IWS Title, well that’s a bonus.

Steen may wear his emotions on his sleeve, but the truth is the fire in his eyes is no different than in those of Grenier or of Boyer. Even Franky the Mobster, when no one is looking, backstage when he allows his Joker fa├žade to drop, when he looks at Manny’s IWS belt, I promise you in his eyes, there is fire, there is desire, there is a love of Gold. Kevin Steen may be Franky’s best friend, but if I were Kevin, I would no more turn my back on Franky than I would on Sylvain, than I would on Boyer.

The one thing that these four men have in common is that there is nothing that they would not do to earn a shot at the IWS Title.

And no one knows that better than the man who has arranged for them to play demolition derby with their own bodies, the better to give him a chance to keep his precious title. His name is PCP Crazy F’N Manny, and for better or worse, he is our IWS Champion.

In the IWS, the root of all evil holds the Gold.
