It’s official: “The King of Chaos” Ricky Cruz is the first Missouri Heavyweight Champion, as sanctioned by Missouri Wrestling Revival.  Despite most going home happy, the event was controversial.

Reigning Dynamo Pro Champion Jake Dirden accidentally collided with referee Michael Crase in the corner.  The second official, Patrick Hook, was struck by a Cruz diving crossbody.

With no “regular” referees left, Michael Magnuson and Dave DeLorean (of the Travis Cook Organization) attacked Cruz.

Dynamo Pro owner Crystal Yount demanded the TCO leave ringside or they would be fired.  The two complied.  Yount named Mike Outlaw as the third referee and declared, “We will have a winner tonight.”

Outlaw seemed unbiased; he only struck Dirden with the Dynamo Pro belt to escape “Dirdey’s” clutch on Mike’s neck.

“(Traditionally, if) You put your hands on a ref, you’ll get disqualified. If you put your hands on Mike Outlaw, you’ll get knocked the hell out,” Outlaw explained to MWR.

Ricky Cruz took advantage of that incident and landed a beautiful superkick that looked like it could have decapitated the big man from Blackwater.

Cruz is something of a belt collector now.  He owns the belts of MWR, Dynamo Pro, the Kansas City-based GWF, and he’s the IWRG Rey del Ring champ too.

Ricky was excited about winning MWR’s belt: “The belt is very cool.  I can’t wait to defend it and I’ll represent our area when I take it to Puerto Rico.”

Also that night, High Level Enterprise (Jon Webb & Jack Gamble) finally defeated The Black Hand Warriors (DeLorean & Magnuson) to win the Dynamo Pro Tag Team Championship for the first time.  The brutal No-Holds-Barred match included the BHW getting slammed onto Lego blocks (that has got to be a first).

Ricky Cruz’s first MO Title defense is against another Travis Cook Organization member, Attila Khan.  The showdown is presented by New Breed Wrestling on October 24 at the Eldon Community Center.  The Missouri Title will be defended in every singles match the champion has in the State.
