Missouri Office of Athletics present Awards of Excellence to South Broadway Legends

During the MMWA “King of Cable” Tournament at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club in November, the Missouri Office of Athletics supervisor, Ed Moynahan, presented Awards of Excellence to a few that have made an unselfish contribution to pro wrestling.

First was wrestling promoter Tony Casta and his wife Wanda. Tony wrestled and then promoted for 28 years. When fans purchase a ticket for South Broadway wrestling, one of the first people they see is Wanda.  The MMWA at the SBAC is a tradition for many young and old, and Tony and Wanda are vital to the success that pro wrestling continues to have.

Senior Referee Jim Harris has been on the job for 27 years. Harris began his training with Rick Roberts and the Masked Executioners, and took in as much advice from former Wrestling at the Chase Referee Ed Smith. Harris has the respect and admiration from his peers, wrestlers and fans for his utmost integrity and dedication to his profession.

To many, “The Great One” Gary Jackson is St. Louis Wrestling.  The former military veteran made his mark in the Midwest and made appearances in WWE and WCW. He continues to main event cards and capture titles in exciting matches each month.  Gary Jackson is everything that a champion needs to be: hardworking, professional, and always there for the fans.

The Lumberjacks Abe and Gabe have been a staple of pro wrestling in the Midwest for the past 25 years.  They stand 6’4 and 6”3 respectively and weigh a combined 600 pounds.  They have been inducted into the Missouri Wrestling Hall of Fame and are the one the most decorated tag teams in the Midwest.
