Inuvik gave the World Famous C.B. — formerly Cheeseburger — a warm northern welcome July 15 as Totally Arctic Wrestling held its first of a double-header at Ingamo Hall. Joining the honoured guest were Inuvik droogs Deztro the Eskimofo, Blu Wilder and the Nolarbear to dazzle the crowd with a bit of the old ultra-violence. The action continued the following night in Tuktoykatuk for the hamlet’s first wrestling show ever. Eric Bowling/NNSL photo
