FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



BRAMPTON, ON, Canada – Because of its significant South Asian
population, Canada Day celebrations in Brampton, Ontario have a very
unique flavour. One of the main ingredients in that flavour is TigerFest, the annual event
presented by the City of Brampton and vision of the legendary Tiger Jeet Singh and his son Tiger
Ali Singh that perfectly blends the glamour of Bollywood and the spectacle of professional
wrestling.
This year's event on July 1st, in support of the Osler Foundation’s Etobicoke General Hospital,
Brampton Civic Hospital, and Peel Memorial Hospital, was an tremendous success, with
thousands of fans in attendance to see some of wrestling's biggest names square off in a
hardcore war.
TigerFest was the capper of the full-day of Canada Day celebrations with the official kick off

being done when Mayor Susan Fennell took to the stage and welcomed the thousands in
attendance and expressed her gratitude for the Tigers loyalty in returning back to Brampton.
The Mayor was accompanied by Tiger Jeet Singh, Kulvir Singh Gill Chair Olsler Foundation,
Minister of Transport Lisa Raitt and city councillor Vicky Dhillon. “TigerFest is a significant
charity event in our City,” said Mayor Fennell, “and I am proud to see it as part of our exciting
Canada Day celebrations.”
The audience was spellbound when Tiger Ali Singh and movie star Vinay Virmani made their way
into the ring. Vinay was on hand to support the Tigers, who he’s long admired for not only their
in ring prowess but their fight against drugs. Tiger invited everyone to come out on September
19th
for the premier of Vinay’s new Hollywood film DR. CABBIE (Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s
first international film production). Vinay closed off by making an impromptu announcement
that Tiger will be starring in his next Hollywood movie!

managerial role for his team) and an additional stipulation that allowed pinfalls to be counted
anywhere.
No longer confined to the ring, all of the combatants took full advantage, as bodies started to fly
everywhere, and the action spilled to the floor. As some of them started unloading on each
other with chairs and garbage cans, Tiger exchanged blows with Steve Corino, taking the fight
into the crowd. There, Singh was able to over-power Corino and with his rabid fans counting
along, Tiger choke slammed Cornio through a table earning the first pinfall. The match returned
to the ring, and Tiger's team was well in control. But just when it looked like his team was going
to get the sweep, Smith shockingly backstabbed Tiger, tagging in, only to then smash him in the
head with a garbage can and allowing their opponents to even things up. Smith tried to justify
his actions by saying he was fed up with being "Tiger's second" and decided to join up with
Corino's crew. Tiger and Sonjay were undaunted, though, and agreed to a 4-on-2 battle for the
third fall. The fight got even wilder then, with even more chair and garbage can smashes being
dealt all around. Ultimately, Dutt and Tiger were able to power through the pain and take out
their opponents one by one. In the end, as chants of "Tiger! Tiger!" filled the air, Tiger Ali Singh
climbed a ladder which had been brought out earlier, and leapt from the top to put the Butcher
through a table in the centre of the ring to get the pin for his team.

After the show, a beat-up Tiger Ali Singh shared his thoughts about the evolution of the annual
event. "A few years ago when we started this, we were looking to have a little fun. To put on an
event the entire family could enjoy, who normally wouldn’t be able to afford the journey out to
catch a live wrestling event in Toronto and raise awareness for a good cause. By God's grace," he
reflected, "it's grown into a major event and an annual tradition. In addition to the charitable
efforts, it's also a platform to promote the message for youth to stay away from drugs, and a
celebration of unity among the rich diversity we have living in Canada."
"Yes, my father is the namesake. But it's the collected effort of all the guys and girls, the
superstars on the show -- their commitment to the cause, their hard work -- that makes this
such a great event each and every time. I'm glad we can continue the tradition, and am very
grateful to Mayor Susan Fennell and the City of Brampton for their continued support and
wanting to share the same ‘message’ with the youth and community.”
Prior to the main event, the preliminary matches featured some exciting action by several of the
stars from Squared Circle Wrestling Promotion and former WWE, TNA and ECW superstars
Bushwhacker Luke, Tyson, Rage Warrior and Bollywood Boyz.
