NWL STL has signed homegrown wrestling superstar Mike Outlaw, who will honor his humble St. Louis-area upbringing by competing in the League under the name Dez Wellston.

Signing a multiyear contract with NWL STL to wrestle in front of his family is the culmination of a dream for this tenacious Midwest grappler, who grew up in Wellston, one of the most economically depressed areas in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

“Every time I’m introduced in the ring as ‘Dez Wellston,’ I’m always going to remember where I came from and how hard I had to fight to get here,” he says. “A lot of people haven’t even heard of my hometown and its struggles. But when I become a champion in NWL STL, I’m going to put Wellston on the map. This isn’t just my dream—I’m fighting for an entire community.”

Travis Bowden, the League’s VP of marketing, praised NWL STL for signing Wellston, who has built a reputation as a fierce competitor on the local indie scene over the last few years.

“Wellston is one of the most exciting performers in the Midwest, and his best days are ahead of him in NWL STL,” says Bowden, who oversaw the contract signing during a recent press conference at NWL Headquarters in downtown Kansas City. “It’s a great day for the NWL when such a promising local star like Wellston signs with the League, as we continue to build a close-knit wrestling community in St. Louis and the surrounding area. On a personal level, I couldn’t be happier for Dez and his family.”
