Missouri Rankings Update: If you doubted Dak Draper, Shame…on…You!

Posted by Ben Simon on March 1, 2017

MO Rankings

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through April, has been calculated and published.  Head over to the MO Rankings page for the latest publication.  To qualify for the Top 10, a wrestler must have the highest ratings with consistent activity (RD ≤ 200).  Rankings are published every two months.

For details on how the rankings work, read the Introduction

MOVEMENTS & EXPLANATIONS

The Missouri Heavyweight Championship has changed hands twice since our last update two months ago.  In the MMWA Championship Series at South Broadway in January, Barackus shocked onlookers as he slammed #7Brandon Espinosa to win the strap.

The tournament continued in February, where CAce Hawkins was awarded a pinfall decision over the “Missouri Monster.”  The final moments of the match were confusing and controversial; the original fall for Barackus was invalidated (good call), then Barackus kicked out before the deciding three count in the resumed match (bad call).  However, the referee’s result stands and Ace Hawkins is our recognized champion.

#2Dak Draper is the first big name from the National Wrasslin’ League to crack the Top Ten.  The cocky “Mile High Magnum” has walked over smaller foes, going undefeated in his Missouri campaign so far.  In the NWL KC quarterfinals, Draper is the favorite to win the Kansas City Championship.

#4Jon Webb retains his position and the WLW Junior Heavyweight Title by tapping out Kyle Roberts with the ankle lock.  Roberts drops from our list.

#5The Iceman advances two spaces after the list departures of Roberts and Jay Howard.  Plus, a victory over the masked Canadian Red Devil can only help.

#6Jeremy Wyatt must be glad he gave up retirement.  The Kansas City veteran makes our rankings for the first time ever.  Despite his elimination from the NWL KC tournament at the hands of rival Thor Theriot (in the first round!), Wyatt may be entering his prime all over again.

#8Mitch Johnson drops three rungs after a time limit draw to lesser-known Jacob Brawn.

CCW Heavyweight Champion #9Brandon Barbwire and #10Captain Shabam round out the Top Ten in their first appearances on the list.  Barbwire has established himself as the best in Cape Girardeau, and he has had enough matches now to warrant an official slot.  Despite his small stature, the KC favorite Shabam was on a roll this period, only getting stopped by KCXW champion JC Thunder.

Michael Elgin Wins the Dynamo Pro Wrestling D-1 Title

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 26, 2017

0

Here at MWR we work with several of the top promotions in the area and due to the amount of time, we often just give breaking news for title changes of the main titles for each promotion individually with a MWR headline. Yet, when the man that captures a secondary title is one of the TOP wrestlers in the WORLD today, let us say that it is a HUGE deal.

That is what happened last night when MWR was on hand to cover the exciting double main event in Alton, Illinois for Dynamo Pro Wrestling as Michael Elgin challenged D-1 Champion Outtkast and DPW Champion Brandon Aarrons battled Elvis Aliaga at the Mineral Springs Mall in Alton, Illinois.

The Mineral Springs Mall is famous for being known as haunted. We are sure that Outtkast will forever be scarred with the memory of the brutal lariat that was delivered from Elgin that ended his title reign of D-1 Champion.

Look for a full recap of Dynamo Pro as well as when Michael Elgin’s first D-1 title defense will be in the future  at MWR.
