MWR June 2008 Awards

Posted by Admin on July 13, 2008

Missouri Wrestling Revival’s 2nd Quarter 2008 Awards!

The second quarter of 2008 has passed, and as we hit the halfway point of this year Missouri Wrestling Revival reflects on the months of April, May, and June in the 2nd Quarter Awards! All awards are nominated and selected by the MWR Awards Committee.

Here are the winners and runners up for 2nd Quarter 2008.

MWR Wrestler of the Quarter

Shane Hollister [SCW/AAW/3XW]

Loaded with potential and plenty of time to accomplish his goals, the youngster is one half of the AAW Tag Team Champions (with Bryce Benjamin), the NWA Iowa State Champion, and SCW Heavyweight Champion. He’s really turned it up this quarter, and Midwest wrestling fans have taken notice.

1st Runner Up – Dingo
2nd Runner Up – Mark Sterling
3rd Runner Up – “The Future” Donovan Ruddick

Others receiving votes:
“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, Justin Sane, Josh Abercrombie

MWR Tag Team of the Quarter

The LONRs (Mark Sterling & Darrien Sanders) [AAPW/PWP]

The Pro Wrestling Phoenix Tag Team Champs have been a team for some time, but recently made a splash by capturing and defending the titles against very tough competition. If they are able to retain the titles again against the Northstar Express this month, we may be looking at the best team in the Midwest.

1st Runner Up – Phoenix Twins (Tweek & Dash)
2nd Runner Up – Northstar Express (Darin Corbin & Ryan Cruz)
3rd Runner Up – Mr. Bibbs & Dave Vaughn

Others receiving votes:
Steve Anthony & Marc Godeker, Adrenalin Overdose (Bryce Benjamin & Shane Hollister), Johnny Vinyl & Davey Vega, Full Throttle (Brandon Marino & Aaron Scott), B.A.B.E.WATCH (Brandon Aarons & Brandon Espinosa)

MWR Promotion of the Quarter

World League Wrestling

Consistently considered the best wrestling promotion in the Midwest, WLW runs a professional show with some of the best talent around. Things are only going to get better, as they have picked up some great talent in Michael Strider & Tyler Cook, and the word is that a certain young bearded Norse-channeling man is working out at Harley Race’s gym in Eldon, too!

1st Runner Up – 3XWrestling
2nd Runner Up -AAW: Pro Wrestling Redefined
3rd Runner Up – Lethal Wrestling Alliance

Others receiving votes:
All American Pro Wrestling (AAPW), Scott County Wrestling (SCW), Pro Wrestling Phoenix (PWP), Impact Zone Wrestling (IZW)

MWR Woman of the Quarter

Stacy O’Brien [WLW/MMWA-SICW]

O’Brien is one of the most active female wrestlers in the MWR coverage area. To top it all off, this highly skilled woman is the champion in the two most active women’s divisons in Missouri, MMWA-SICW and World League Wrestling.

1st Runner Up – MsChif
2nd Runner Up – Sara Del Ray
3rd Runner Up – December

Others receiving votes:
Alexis Lightfoot

MWR Personality of the Quarter

Harley Race [WLW]

Harley Race. World Heavyweight Champion. Class act. Mr. Race was the overwhelming choice for the 2nd Quarter 2008 Personality Award, but the award just doesn’t hold a candle to the simple name “Harley Race”. That name alone commands respect. On top of his work as a pro wrestler and more recently as the head of World League Wrestling, Mr. Race’s work in June for the Waterloo, IA Wrestling Museum and Hall of Fame in a particular time of crisis for the building due to heavy flooding really hit home that we have the heart and sole of professional wrestling right here in the Show Me State.

1st Runner Up – Mark Bland
2nd Runner Up – Kari Williams
3rd Runner Up – Luke Roberts

Others receiving votes:
Steve “Botch” Szoke, Joey Eastman, Tiffany Lafane

MWR Match of the Quarter

SCW Heavyweight Title Match:
Tyler Black (C) vs Shane Hollister (4/4/2008 in Davenport, IA) [SCW]

Fans who saw the match loved it. Those that didn’t see the match are dying to. MWR’s Wrestler of the 2nd Quarter made his claim for the award early in the quarter when on April 4th, 2008 he defeated Tyler Black for the SCW Heavyweight Title.

1st Runner Up –

LWA Medallion Match:
“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt vs Mark Sterling
(6/28/2008 in House Springs, MO)

2nd Runner Up –

AAPW Heavyweight Title Match:
“Serial Thriller” Shane Rich vs “Homicidal” Steven Davis
