VANCOUVER, BC – It has been often said that in the world of professional wrestling just about anything can and does happen, but every once in a while there is a special moment that transcends and elevates the industry so that it is viewed in a different light. For Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling (ECCW), that moment is July 12, which has been recognized by the Mayor of Vancouver as ECCW Day.

The proclamation was made by Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson.

ECCW is owned by three people — Mary Diaz (mother of wrestler Jamie Diaz), and wrestlers Scotty Mac, and “The Natural” Jeff Duncan. Diaz is immensely proud of the honour.

 

“It shows that we are considered a respectable company with something to give back to the community,” Diaz told SLAM! Wrestling. “The three of us have owned ECCW since September 11, 2010, when we purchased it from Dave Republic. This is possibly the pinnacle our achievements so far. We have come a long way since taking over.”
