Editor’s Desk…

MWR Owner-Editor

I sincerely hope that you have all been enjoying the hard work of my good friends Brian Kelley and Kari Williams over the past month that I have been absent from the Midwest.  It’s nothing but fun and sun for me in Iraq.  Actually, the temperature has dropped to around 60 degrees during the day, but I can’t complain.  Typically this time of year in Iraq is muddy and cold.  It’s really neither right now.

I’ve been trying to keep up with all of the Midwest wrestling action, but as you can imagine, it is difficult.  I’m still here, though.  I’m almost completely caught up with the rankings for the 2009 Wrestling Revival Cup season.  Never fear!  I foresee a few changes, perhaps even in the top ten of the singles and tag team rankings.  There are a few individuals and tag teams that seem to be picking up momentum.  Mid Pro Wrestling Undisputed and Scott County Wrestling Champion Mississippi Madman comes to mind.  So does the Ego Express, perennial rivals of 2008’s cinderella tag team of sorts, Johnny Vinyl and Davey Vega.

I’m excited beyong belief about MWR’s next Midwest Best Series match!  Tyler Black, Ring of Honor star and number one in the 2008 MWR 100, goes one on one with MWR’s 2008 Wrestling Revival Cup Champion “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt at Lethal Wrestling Alliance’s event in January.  I count it an honor to have both high caliber wrestlers in the same ring to help promote MWR and Midwest pro wrestling!  What a way to kick off the new year!

Earlier this month I waited around my camp in Diwaniyah, Iraq for an hour and a half to meet and greet World Wrestling Entertainment Superstars to.  More than 300 soldiers and civilians were disappointed to be informed that the event had been canceled!  I was disappointed, as I had planned on plugging the site and conducting quick interviews.  Randy Orton, Big Show, Chris Jericho, JTG and IRS were all scheduled to be there.  The meet and greet was right outside of my screening office, but unfortunately the even fell through.

Issues 1 and 2 have been shiped for Michael Kingston’s “Headlocked” comic book!  Issues 1 features cover art by Jarry “The King” Lawler, while Missouri Wrestling Revival and Michael Kingston teamed up to showcase top Midwest wrestler Michael Strider in Issue 2 in a special section at the back of the book!  I’ll have very limited quantities of both issues, so let me know if you are interested in obtaining a copy.

I wanted to end this column by letting you all know that if you weren’t at LWA’s November show and you did not get to see the Donovan Ruddick vs Mark Sterling match, you missed out!  Go check www.lwawrestling.com and find out when it is being released on DVD!
