VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A proclamation by Vancouver’s mayor has given pro wrestling fans something to cheer about.

Saturday, July 12th is Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling Day, which is also the same day as a show at the Commodore Ballroom.

Scotty Mac, who performs for ECCW, was surprised by the mayor’s announcement.

“The fact that he’s going to bat for us like this, and recognize us like this, means the world to me,” says Scotty Mac.

The official proclamation, signed by the Mayor, states the city is recognizing ECCW for its charitable work, and for the famous wrestlers who once performed in the lower mainland, such as WWE’s Daniel Bryan.

ECCW has been in western Canada since 1997.
