Headliners - Sept. 22, 2016

The weather was something of a problem Saturday, but the rest of the weekend saw large and enthused crowds taking in the 2016 edition of Brampton Fall Fair. Captain Tremendous employed an airplane spin, followed by a splash from the lower ropes to get the count from referee Brad Meyers for victory over Toro Asiaro last Thursday night at Brampton Fall Fair. Classic Championship Wrestling was providing the entertainment on the first night of a very busy weekend at the Fair.
