Missouri Rankings Update: Brandon Espinosa Captures MO Title from Cruz, Shakes Things Up

Posted by Ben Simon on July 5, 2016

MO Rankings

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through August, 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


CBrandon Espinosa is the new Missouri Heavyweight Champion after he rolled up Ricky Cruz with a schoolboy and shocked the fans at the Stratford Bar in Fenton.  Espy has defended his prize twice, although not against top competition.

Is #1Ricky Cruz on tilt?  After the Espinosa loss, Cruz got caught in a small package by #7Outtkast.  ‘Kast breaks in to the leaderboard for the first time and is on the rise.

#2Mitch Johnson defeated two (now formerly) ranked men in one June night at Central-States Championship Wrestling.  Mitch overtakes #3Jake Dirden and #4Gary Jackson with this impressive feat.

WLW Heavyweight Champion #5Trevor Murdoch is skirting with inactivity and just barely keeps a spot two rungs lower from where he was.  Hopefully, the champion will defend his title at WLW’s big event on August 27 in Troy.

#6Brian James pinned Jim Hoffarth and Danny Adams this period, but the Top 10 competition is fierce.  “Da Bomb” stays put.

#8Mike Outlaw is back in the elite after wins over Mike Sydal and Jake Dirden.  Will Outlaw make it back to the top of Dynamo Pro?

#9Moondog Rover schooled young Matt Kenway at South Broadway but he drops two spots due to others rising faster against strong competition.

The Missouri Top 10 just didn’t look right without #10Leland Race.  After three victories at WLW, “The Legacy” is back where he belongs.

Evan Morris, Mike Sydal, Jay Howard, and Jayden Fenix drop off the list.  Morris says he’s taking a break from wrestling (which is often lingo for retirement).  MWR sends its best wishes to “Young and Dangerous” Evan Morris, one of the hardest-working competitors of the last few years.
