We can also confirm that El Generico will be taking on ‘The Kentucky Gentleman’ Chuck Taylor. These two competitors have a long-standing rivalry that has seen them do battle throughout promotions in North America that include PWG, Dragon Gate USA, CHIKARA, and it appears that the rivalry will continue on Sunday.

Therefore, we cordially invite all Montreal wrestling fans as well as fans of El Generico to attend BATTLEWAR 7, this Sunday night at Les Foufounes Electrique.”
