In professional wrestling, the ones who usually get the hype are the people in the ring. Wrestlers, managers, even referees and announcers get the camera time and are recognized by the fans. However, it’s often the ones behind the scenes who put in the most work and make the wrestling product what it is.

For the better part of the past two decades, “Evil” Jim Yount and Crystal Yount have played a huge role in the St. Louis wrestling scene. Starting with Midwest Renegade Wrestling in the late ’90s and continuing to Gateway Championship Wrestling, they put in the time and effort to make their promotion of choice into the best product it could be.

In the mid-2000s, they became co-promoters of a branch of NWA Central States which evolved into its current form-Dynamo Pro Wrestling , including an affordable school that has been open for beginner and experience wrestlers alike. During this short time a who’s who of stars have made their way through the doors of the Dynamo Pro Wrestling Dojo include Davey Vega, Brandon Aarons, Alex Rudolph, Mat Fitchett, Santana Garrett, Ozzie Gallagher, Jake Parnell, Jake Dirden, Mike Outlaw, Justin D’Air, and The Snitch

Over the past several years, Dynamo has drawn fans all over the Midwest to their unique brand of wrestling. Many long-time spectators recognize the ties to the GCW days, especially at the epic reunion show in December of 2012 which drew close to five hundred fans!

Dynamo has made an effort to expand its presence, running in several new venues in the past few years. DPW has established a strong audience at the Stratford Inn in Fenton and has also run shows in Wood River as well as Off Broadway and The Ready Room in St. Louis. Dynamo’s media team has gotten the word out about the promotion through several outlets, including radio stations and podcasts around the St. Louis area.

Many Midwest wrestlers have known Jim and Crystal over the years and owe them a lot in helping them with their careers. For that reason, Missouri Wrestling Revival is proud to present them with the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award!
