World League Wrestling first event of 2018!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2018

Harley Race’s World League Wrestling is about ready to kick off the new year! 2017 saw many great matches, legends, and fans come to and through our company. 2018 will be just as good – AND BETTER!

Kicking off this year, you will see the main event of Jack Gamble taking on Leland Race. This one seems personal as Race tried to nearly end the career of Gamble’s closest friend in the professional wrestling industry – Jon Webb.

A rematch has been signed for the #WLW Tag-Team Championships as Superstar Steve and Brandon Espinosa defend against Kyle Roberts and Warwick Stephans.

REX has issued a challenge to Jaden Roller after Roller’s recent actions following the last event in December.

More wrestling matches will be announced as the night draws closer!

Be sure to visit our newly-designed website at www.harleyrace.com to purchase tickets starting January 5th,

Missouri Rankings Update: Jack Foster proves “he is pro wrestling!”

Posted by Ben Simon on January 11, 2018

MO Rankings

SEE THE RANKINGS

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through February, 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 ≤ 175).  Rankings are published every two months.

For details on how the rankings work, read the Introduction

MOVEMENTS & EXPLANATIONS

CAce Hawkins finishes 2017 as the undisputed Missouri Champion.  Highlights this period included Ace wrestling Leland Race to a time limit draw and pinning Hollis Giroux.

We’re proud of Hawkins carrying the mantle of MWR, and we are also proud that the MWR Missouri championship is now recognized as the lineal and true State title by wrestling-titles.com, the bible of title histories around the world.

#1Dak Draper lost his NWL title, but it took a 30-man Rumble in Kansas to dethrone the Coloradan.  Only singles matches count in the rankings, so Draper is still at the top.  “The Mile High Magnum” did suffer his first blemish with a double countout result against Maverick in St. Joseph.

Even though #3Jeremy Wyatt is the new NWL champion, he stays put at his spot, due to a loss to #8Gary Jay, who debuts on the list for the first time.  Wyatt’s DQ loss to the Spirit of the NWL champion allows “Freestyle Phenom” #2Jay Howard to leapfrog Wyatt.  Howard didn’t even compete last period!  Got all that?

Perennial MWR contender and WLW Junior Heavyweight champion #4Jon Webb climbed four rungs with wins over Orion Creed and Jaden Roller.  Webb’s uninterrupted inclusion on our list is a record by far, at two years and four months!

#6Jack Foster’s wins over #9Maverick and Leo Howlett propel the giant from Blackwater back into the Top 10 (a countout draw with Draper helped a lot as well).  Foster is positioning himself at the NWL’s two title belts, neither of which he has yet held.  “Raging Bull” Maverick has fallen four spaces.

Sandwiching Foster are #5Red Cloud and #7Blaine Meeks, both inactive this go round.  If neither Red Cloud or Meeks (now wrestling as Bolt Brady) wrestle by the end of February, they will be removed from our rankings.

#10Anthony Gutierrez rounds out our list with a first-time appearance.  “Sharkbait” pinned the controversial Christian Rose and made newcomer Thomas Shire submit to earn his spot.  However, we’ll have to see if Gutierrez wants to continue as a singles star or commit to his tag team with fellow Lee’s Summit buddy Jet Royal.

Austin Lane, Todd Letterman, and Jet Royal drop out of the rankings this period.  Lane and Letterman were inactive in November and December, and both were flirting with ineligibility.  Jet Royal suffered a loss to Jeremy Wyatt and falls to the Top 20 range.

AWA Collectors Series Vol.2 – Road Warriors

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 9, 2018

If there is one video that I have seen more than any other it may very well be this AWA title called Road Warriors : Road to the Championship. There was a time when I was huge huge fans of the Road Warriors and thanks to my friend Drew Abbenhaus (who found it on youtube as I only have it on VCR thanks to my friend Chris Howser) I am able to share with you one of the reasons I fell in love wrestling and am currently run the website MWR.

I love he action out of the ring as the Road Warriors tried to leave the ring after destroying Curt Henning, a moment that is etched in my mind till the day. I love how Bill Apter is a part of the video which made the magazine and the wrestlers both seem like such a huge deal. Great interviews and an awesome music video was an added bonus of 30 minutes that played over and over at the Kelley household.

If you do not believe me that is it awesome, then watch for yourself.

Brian Kelley – MWR Owner and Editor

Released by Kids Klassics Home Video, this is Volume 2 in the AWA VHS Collectors series titled Road Warriors:Road to the Championship

featuring:
Interview with Bill Apter,
Road Warriors and Paul Ellering Road Warriors vs. Curt Hennig,
Baron Von Raschke Interview with the Road Warriors,
Paul Ellering Road Warriors vs. Larry, Curt Hennig

Draper and Wyatt Set to Collide Again

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 9, 2018

By Brian Hoops

On Saturday, January 13th; the NWL presents its biggest championship match to date. It’s not Alpha vs. Omega, but its The Monarch against the Magnum; the King of Kansas City vs. the Don Juan of Denver; the Champion vs. the former Champion.

Jeremy Wyatt, the newly crowned NWL Champion, will defend his title against the man who was never pinned but still lost the title, Dak Draper.

Wyatt won the title December 8, 2017 in Kansas City when he last eliminated Dak Draper in a battle royal. Originally, general manager Matt Jackson had declared the winner of the battle royal would go on to face then Champion Dak Draper for the title at a future date, however Draper’s arrogance got the better of him and Draper decided to put the belt at stake in the battle royal. Draper entered #1 and outlasted all other participants, except Wyatt who eliminated Draper to win the championship.

Now Draper is out for revenge against Wyatt and to regain his lost title. “I’m so sure that I’m going to beat Wyatt that, last week, I had a box of “2-time NWL champ” shirts printed up,” exclaims the confident challenger.

Draper won the title in a tournament final on April 1, 2017; defeating Blaine Meeks to become the first and only NWL Champion. Draper held the belt throughout the 2017 and virtually cleaned out all challengers for his title, including Hans Gruber, Red Cloud, Gil Rogers, Dez Wellston, Jet Royal, Blaine Meeks and Thor Theriot. Draper was never pinned by any of these competitors, in fact his only pinfall losses have occurred in tag team matches.

Wyatt was beaten out in the tournament by Thor Theriot, but quickly worked his way back up the championship ladder in 2017 by defeating nearly everyone in his path. Including avenging his loss to Thor Theriot and beating Jack Foster, Mike Outlaw and Anthony “Sharkbait” Guittereiz in notable feuds.

What lengths will Wyatt go to keep the title? Will fellow Foundation members Michael Strider and Ace Steel, the NWL Tag Team Champions, get involved in the match?

“I don’t really feel like I need to go to any ‘lengths’ to keep my title. I just have to show up and do what I say I’m going to do. Beat Dak Draper. Beat him right in the middle of the ring. Leave no doubt I’m the better man. I already know this and Saturday night, everyone else will too” explains the newly crowned champion Wyatt when asked about the upcoming contest.

Draper’s quest to regain the title should be one of the many great storylines from the NWL in 2018.

“Draper and Wyatt are two of the best wrestlers I’ve ever been around in 20 years of the wrestling business, from the indies to WWE”, explained former WWE writer and current NWL executive Chris Gough.

“Jeremy Wyatt has the rare knack of combating any style he faces. Dak Draper’s amateur background puts him in the same category. Both are excellent showman and entertainers as well. This will be one of our best matches ever!”

The NWL, which has been on its own holiday since running a show December 15 in St. Joseph, Missouri and hasn’t run a show in Kansas City since December 8, makes their return to Overland Park, Kansas as they kick off the “Evolution Tour” Saturday, January 13. Besides the NWL Championship match with Champion Jeremy Wyatt defending against Challenger, Dak Draper; Eddie Kingston debuts against Leonel Howlett; Besties in the World teams with Jack Foster against Ace Steel, Marco Howlett and Maddux; Jet Royal takes on Niles Plonk; Mike Outlaw wrestles Bolt Brady (Blaine Meeks), Thor Theriot and Sharkbait Guetteriez in a four way match, Michael Strider wrestles Gil Rogers, Marti Belle takes on Laynie Luck and Gary Jay will also be in action.

Other upcoming NWL events are scheduled for January 19 in O’Fallon, Missouri; January 27 in Kansas City, Kansas; February 3 in Joplin, Missouri and February 9 in St. Joseph, Missouri.

WRESTLE TALK PODCAST PRESENTS EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH J. SAVAGE, ALEX TORREZ, AND JERRY BOSTIC

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 9, 2018

The Wrestle Talk Podcast with Joe and Rene is proud to announce that on Wednesday, January 10th, we will have the opportunity to speak with several recognizable faces in the world of professional wrestling.

At 7:10 P.M., during the “High Spots” segment, we have the opportunity to talk with J. Savage from KCXW. A lifelong professional wrestling fan, J. Savage is a relentless competitor who is quickly making a name for himself as one of the fastest-rising professional wrestlers in the mid-western United States. In addition to talking about all of the recent events in the world of professional wrestling, we will also be discussing the upcoming KCXW: Wrestling for Pets event on Saturday, January 13th at the State Street Project in Kansas City, Kansas. In addition to this event being a fundraiser for the Midwest Animal ResQ, fans will have the opportunity to see one-half of the Rock and Roll Express, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton at this event.

At 7:30 P.M., we have the opportunity to talk with Alex Torres. Born in Passaic, New Jersey, Alex Torres is an artist who is heavily influenced by artists like DOOM, Common, DAS EFX, The Delfonics, Gil Scott Herron, and Punk Rock Music. As a child, Alex Torres utilized music, movies, video games, and televised professional wrestling to escape from the deplorable living conditions he experienced. These escape mechanisms allowed Alex Torres to develop a critical thinking intuition. Free-thinking and approaching tasks in an unorthodox fashion, allows Alex to cultivate lyrics in a fashion that is rarely heard in today’s “rap industry.” Now residing in Aurora, Colorado, Alex Torres prides himself on producing, writing, and mastering all his music, but critical thinking is the message he wishes to be at the forefront of his artistry.

At 8:30 P.M., we have the opportunity to talk with owner of the Imperial Wrestling Revolution, Jerry Bostic. Currently residing in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Jerry Bostic founded the Imperial Wrestling Revolution in 2014. Since that time, under the guidance of Jerry Bostic, Justin Roberts, and Jim Ross, the Imperial Wrestling Revolution has become one of the premier professional wrestling promotions in the southern United States. In 2017, the Imperial Wrestling Revolution ventured into the pay per view world with their “OklaMania” event on FITE TV. During this exclusive interview, we will also be discussing the Imperial Wrestling Revolution’s upcoming “God Bless Texas” event on Saturday, January 20th in Dallas, Texas. This event will feature a variety of recognizable professional wrestling personalities, including Marshall and Ross Von Erich, Lisa Marie Varon, MVP, Matt Sydal, Abyss, The Spirit Squad, Ethan Carter III, Chavo Guerrero Jr., and Madison Rayne. In addition, WWE Hall of Famers “Mean” Gene Okerlund and Sting will be in attendance at this historic event.

2017 MWR Wrestler of the Year: “Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper

Posted by Ben Simon on January 7, 2018

Write up by Ben Simon

Missouri Wrestling Revival is proud to present our most prestigious year-end award to the “Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper.

The 2017 Wrestler of the Year award recipient is a unique one for two reasons.

First, this was the first year anyone had ever heard of Dakota Draper under any ring name in the Midwest.  Formerly known as Sammy Six Guns, Draper had wrestled in WWE NXT, but he was unknown in the MWR states.

Second, the MWR board voted unanimously for Draper.  This never happens!  The decision wasn’t tough though; the six-foot five-inch tall Draper has had one of the best years of any independent wrestler we have ever seen.

It is rare to see such a blend of size, strength, athleticism, and charisma as Dak Draper possesses.

The 250 lb. heavyweight was one of the first signings of the National Wrasslin’ League, which launched in January 7, 2017 and is already the most active promotion in Missouri.

Dak Draper proved unbeatable the entire year.  He won the tournament to crown the first NWL Champion on April 1 and held the title until December 8, when he lost it in a 30-man Rumble match (which he entered voluntarily).

Our mathematical Missouri Rankings system has had him at #1 in the State since the end of April (26-0-1 record; the blemish was a double countout in St. Joseph against Maverick).  He even surpassed Ricky Cruz‘s record high rating, which means he is the most dominant wrestler in Missouri (at least!) since 2013 (at least!).

Draper’s relationship with the fans has matured this year.  He has always been charismatic yet brash.  Most NWL viewers thought he was downright annoying at first.  However, the man who likes to point and proclaim, “Shame on you!” eventually had a popular catchphrase on his hands.

The fans joined Draper’s favor after he was accused of throwing an elimination match for control of the NWL’s matchmaking.  Dak denied the accusation by company owner Major Baisden and sought to prove his word by putting his title on the line in the NWL Rumble, which he lost.  This has redeemed his abrasive personality to many fans.

The Denver, Colo. native is a master of self-promotion.  He even has his own YouTube series, The Magnum Minute.  He has produced about 50 short episodes this year.

Congratulations to “The Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper for earning the 2017 MWR Wrestler of the Year award.
