#FIGHTINGBACK5 – This Saturday night! Complete Invitational participants announced! And more!

We are days away from the most important event of the year for the Canadian independent professional wrestling scene!  #FIGHTINGBACK5 is quickly approaching, and this STACKED event is set to be a memorable night for all involved.

International superstar, and junior-heavyweight legend, ULTIMO DRAGON will be in action, making his historic debut in the nation’s capital, and a very rare Canadian appearance.

Former WWE, WCW, and ECW superstar, and high-flying innovator, 2 COLD SCORPIO returns to Ottawa for the first time in nearly two decades!

Current Ring of Honor superstar, PWG Champion, and the person many people are calling the best independent talent in the world today, RODERICK STRONG makes his Ottawa debut!

All this, plus countless Ottawa favourites, all coming together to help raise as much money as possible for the Canadian Cancer Society, in memory of Phrank Morin!

Right now, we have the final list of names to announce concerning the massive 2015 edition of the FIGHTING BACK INVITATIONAL tournament!

Below you’ll find a list of names including a beloved fan favourite, stepping out of retirement for the cause.  As well as a much hated, co-holder of the C*4 Tag Team Championship,  joining the fray.

In addition to them, we have several popular up and comers, male and female, all joining the action, looking to step away on top of the 2015 FBI!

Lastly, we would like to point you to various fundraising events happening this week, which will be raising money to our final donation. Our friends at newLEGACYincare hosting their second annual 24 hour gaming marathon in support of Fighting Back 5!   Last year they helped raised over $10 000 to add to our final donation, and this year we hope to top that!

You can watch and participate in the stream starting Friday, August 15th, at 3:30pm, right here:http://www.hitbox.tv/FightingBack

In addition to that, starting on Thursday, a 12-hour pre-show will be held, organized by Gamebox and friends.   So, as a lead-in, 36 hours of online donating will occur in support of #FightingBack5!

We once again are excited to have a global support network for this huge event!
