Missouri Rankings Update: Jack Foster proves “he is pro wrestling!”

Posted by Ben Simon on January 11, 2018

MO Rankings


The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through February, 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 ≤ 175).  Rankings are published every two months.

For details on how the rankings work, read the Introduction


CAce Hawkins finishes 2017 as the undisputed Missouri Champion.  Highlights this period included Ace wrestling Leland Race to a time limit draw and pinning Hollis Giroux.

We’re proud of Hawkins carrying the mantle of MWR, and we are also proud that the MWR Missouri championship is now recognized as the lineal and true State title by wrestling-titles.com, the bible of title histories around the world.

#1Dak Draper lost his NWL title, but it took a 30-man Rumble in Kansas to dethrone the Coloradan.  Only singles matches count in the rankings, so Draper is still at the top.  “The Mile High Magnum” did suffer his first blemish with a double countout result against Maverick in St. Joseph.

Even though #3Jeremy Wyatt is the new NWL champion, he stays put at his spot, due to a loss to #8Gary Jay, who debuts on the list for the first time.  Wyatt’s DQ loss to the Spirit of the NWL champion allows “Freestyle Phenom” #2Jay Howard to leapfrog Wyatt.  Howard didn’t even compete last period!  Got all that?

Perennial MWR contender and WLW Junior Heavyweight champion #4Jon Webb climbed four rungs with wins over Orion Creed and Jaden Roller.  Webb’s uninterrupted inclusion on our list is a record by far, at two years and four months!

#6Jack Foster’s wins over #9Maverick and Leo Howlett propel the giant from Blackwater back into the Top 10 (a countout draw with Draper helped a lot as well).  Foster is positioning himself at the NWL’s two title belts, neither of which he has yet held.  “Raging Bull” Maverick has fallen four spaces.

Sandwiching Foster are #5Red Cloud and #7Blaine Meeks, both inactive this go round.  If neither Red Cloud or Meeks (now wrestling as Bolt Brady) wrestle by the end of February, they will be removed from our rankings.

#10Anthony Gutierrez rounds out our list with a first-time appearance.  “Sharkbait” pinned the controversial Christian Rose and made newcomer Thomas Shire submit to earn his spot.  However, we’ll have to see if Gutierrez wants to continue as a singles star or commit to his tag team with fellow Lee’s Summit buddy Jet Royal.

Austin Lane, Todd Letterman, and Jet Royal drop out of the rankings this period.  Lane and Letterman were inactive in November and December, and both were flirting with ineligibility.  Jet Royal suffered a loss to Jeremy Wyatt and falls to the Top 20 range.
