Missouri Rankings Update: Trevor Murdoch Stomps to the Top!

Posted by Ben Simon on May 3, 2016

MO Rankings

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through June, has been calculated and published.  Head over to the MO Rankings page for the latest publication.  To qualify for the Top 10, a wrestler must have the highest ratings with consistent activity (RD ≤ 200).  Rankings are published every two months.

For details on how the rankings work, read the Introduction


CRicky Cruz is nine defenses deep into his State title reign.  He was awarded victories over three ranked opponents last period, albeit by disqualifications.  The champ is steamrolling.

#1Jake Dirden and #2Gary Jackson retain their spots.

#3Trevor Murdoch debuts high on the list.  For the WLW Heavyweight Champion, it was just a matter of increasing his activity; wins over Roy Lewis and Karim Brigante did the trick.

#4Mitch Johnson and #5Evan Morris may seem like the pair is reversed.  After all, Morris most recently scored a title victory over Johnson.  Mitch had a very high rating, and it was his recent loss that made him active enough to be eligible.  Johnson’s prior record attests that his Top 10 debut is appropriate.

#6Brian James took a countout against Dirden at South Broadway.  He also takes one step back, pushing #7Moondog Rover with him.

High Risk Wrestling has crowned its first champion of the promotion’s time in Missouri: #8Mike Sydal.  “The Yoga Monster” won two matches in one night to become HRW High Risk Champion.  One rung higher…

#9Jay Howard and #10Jayden Fenix round out the list with their entries.  The Troy Athletic Club’s Howard has a solid freestyle background and used it to pin Tony Kozina last month.  Fenix went 3-0 last period; he has qualified to wrestle for the WLW Jr. Heavyweight Title.

Everett Connors, Leland Race, Jon Webb, and A.J. Williams exit the list for now.  Connors is no longer competing in the State, Race lost a couple important matches, Webb is doing well but he got edged out by others, and Williams is focused on tag team ventures.
