This summer, Bored Wrestling Fan had the opportunity to discuss the return of a Calgary, and international, professional wrestling staple, Stampede Wrestling. On a stormy August afternoon, Doc Knight and Bruce Hart spent time with ThinkSoJoE and G explaining the vision and mission of the newly dubbed, “Original Stampede Wrestling” (OSW). This is the real deal, folks. Accept no imitations.
The OSW has started up a fundraising project via Indiegogo.com, called “Return of the Ring.” Over the course of the next 116 days, the goal is to raise $150,000 in order to setup of facility for training and business operations and to build two new rings for training and shows.
But possibly even more amazing, is the goal to repair and refurbish THE RING. Not just any ring, this is the same ring that has been a part of Stampede Wrestling since the beginning. It has seen and spent time with countless wrestling talents from the days of the past to some of the stars of today. The “Ring of Dreams” is associated among those who trained with the legendary Stu Hart and his family in the world famous “Dungeon,” and possibly may continue to do so with your support.
You touch it and feel its power, as the thunder, the electricity, the pounding of its heart and soul… SCREAMING as it rushes in to you… “I will NOT let it end here, I will NOT die out here, I have stood the test of time, so Test me with yours! I will show you what I stand for”
The following video comes directly from the Indiegogo fundraising webpage.

The Fundraiser runs now through Wednesday, March 06 at 11:59PM PT.
