SICW continues to honor the history of Wrestling in St Louis, with a huge month of May. A week following the historic weekend of wrestling in Alton, Illinois, SICW returns to East Carondelet, Illinois on May 18th with special guest Butch Reed.

Reed’s bio at WWE.COM states it best.

As rugged as they came, Butch Reed started his ring career in the central states area in 1978. He became a major player in the Universal Wrestling Federation in the early 1980s, and is remembered there for his brutal rivalries with legends like “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and The Junkyard Dog.

Reed’s tenure in WWE began in late 1986. Billed as “The Natural,” the massive grappler was a forced to be reckoned with thanks to his size and his manager — the underhanded Slick. In WWE rings, the 260-pound native of Kansas City quickly made an impact, battling the likes of Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, and Magnificent Muraco in 1987.

From there, he moved on to WCW where he formed the dangerous team of Doom with Ron Simmons. Managed by Teddy Long, the duo defeated The Steiner Brothers for the WCW Tag Team Championships in 1989. They would hold the titles for an amazing 281 days, setting a record that stood until WCW’s demise in 2001.
