The raucous crowd of 200 filled The Dalles’ Eagles Lodge Aerie 2126 with boisterous chants of U.S.A.!, U.S.A.!, U.S.A.! while Oregon City resident Buddy Highway locked wrestling horns with England’s own ‘Gentleman’ George Michaels in the first bout of the night. Edwards, Highway and a slew of grapplers including ‘Maniac’ Matt Bourne, tag team champions Bubba and Jeremy Blanchard and the son of ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, Colt Toombs, were on display Thursday during a filming of Portland Wrestling Uncut. Highway won his match and exited stage left to a cascade of cheers from the crowd — a great patriotic way to start.
