Finally, The Sly has broken the mould......

In his most recent encounter with the Hangman Samson, Sly Grenier used interference, folded chairs and finally the Hangman's noose, for a TKO and the start of a new career as a hard core hero.

The images by Minas Panagiotakis (above and below and in the gallery - here) tell the story - my only quibble being that, with Samson all tied up, why did Sly stop there ... why not take to him with a folded chair in the style of the Sheik or Dick the Bruiser - stunning the crowd with endless brutality on an already limp opponent. That's how they did it OLD SCHOOL and people are still talking about it!!

Don't talk to him, Sly - hit him with a folded chair!!

Also, maybe its time for Sly to make that noose his own gimmick - look how much mileage Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen got out of old rope and a cowbell. The possibilities are endless and the hangman's rope a useful replacement for those La Res flag poles in abetting more ring mischief.

Full marks to Grenier for his new departure - let's hope he ratchets up the violence one more notch at each of his upcoming shows, starting with Triple Menace this Friday, 27 February at the Centre Fleurimont.

Finally, a word of congratulations to Samson who always looks the part and kept up the pace throughout this exciting match
