The Okanagan has it’s fair share of talented and prolific wrestlers, but nobody has risen quicker to fame and fortune than the brash rookie from Salmon Arm. Standing 6-foot-5, Shotgun Stevens made an intimidating presence the moment he debuted in Big West on December 13, 2014. While he would lose to Collin Cutler in his debut, everyone knew the big rookie had something special…including Cutler, himself, as he immediately recruited him to be a part of his new “Adult Social Society” stable.
The move paid off immediately, as Cutler would not only become two-time Big West Television Champion, but would retain the title for a nearly record-breaking 216 days. Not long after seeing his mentor unceremoniously stripped of the championship, Shotgun would make his big move: cashing in the K5 medallion to become Champion on May 20th of this year.
Despite being less than two years in the business, Shotgun has already received numerous awards: 2015 Most Hated Wrestler, 2015 Match Of The Year, 2015 Newcomer Of The Year, and runner-up to 2015 Wrestler Of The Year. He was also in the finals of both the 2015 Okanagan Cup and the 2015 King of Bella Coola tournament, won the inaugural Bowl-A-Rama, and has won the 2015 Rutland Rumble and the 2016 K5 Ladder Match.
What’s left for Shotgun Stevens? 2016 Wrestler Of The Year, if he has his way…
