Michael Richard Blais set to celebrate twenty years as a professional wrestler with charity  fundraiser  

EDMONTON, AB: A local professional wrestler is set to attempt to make history in an effort to  raise funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. 

On Saturday, May 13th, local professional wrestler Michael Richard Blais will attempt to wrestle  an eight-hour match known as “The Infinity Gauntlet” as a fundraiser for Edmonton’s Stollery  Children’s Hospital. The event, hosted in conjunction with the Clandestine Wrestling Society is  set to mark Blais’ twentieth anniversary since beginning training as a professional wrestler. 

“Over recent months I've become familiar with the Stollery through various situations with  people close to me and their experiences,” said Blais. “I've always wanted to do something  special that's never been done before with it and more importantly for a good cause. Looking  further into it and thinking about myself as a kid it made me feel like this would be the good  cause I'd most want to dedicate this idea to.” 

Beginning at 12:00 PM on May 13th, Blais will attempt to wrestle in a gauntlet match against a  variety of different opponents. Blais will wrestle for half an hour for every $100 raised, with a  goal of $1,600 raised for a total of eight consecutive hours wrestled. 

The Infinity Gauntlet is scheduled to feature a number of independent stars from throughout  Alberta, including current LPW Grand Champion Zoë Sager, Taryn From Accounting, “The  Thickness” Reid Matthews, and Steven Crowe. 

Blais was trained in Calgary, Alberta on May 13th, 2003 with former WWE Superstar TJ Wilson  (fka Tyson Kidd). One of the most decorated pro wrestlers in Canadian wrestling history, Blais  has earned multiple appearances for WWE through his tenure as a professional wrestler,  including taking part in the first-ever all-Canadian tryout in the promotion’s history in 2019. For  the past year, Blais has wrestled primarily for Love Pro Wrestling (Edmonton) and WrestleCore  (Vancouver).  

Donations for the event can currently be made directly through the Stollery Children’s Hospital  Foundation at A live stream for the event will also be  hosted at
