Ace Hawkins defends the MWR’s Missouri Title at “Hall of Fame” night, Sept. 9

Posted by Ben Simon on September 6, 2017

If Gary Jackson beats Ace Hawkins on Saturday, September 9, at the South Broadway Athletic Club, “The Night Train” will be the State king for the first time in 14 years.

Not to be an afterthought, Ace Hawkins is defending for the second time since beating Brandon Espinosa in July.

Also on the card, the MMWA’s big belt and the 205 lb. class prize are to be defended in three-way matches.

Draper Retains NWL Title Over Meeks

In a hard fought one on one contest, Dak Draper defeated Blaine Meeks by referee stoppage in a no dq match to retain his NWL Kansas City Championship Saturday night, September 2 at the Scottish Rites Temple in Kansas City, Missouri.  Draper used at least three different steel chairs in brutal encounter, but his actions after the match ended is what drew the ire of NWL President, Major Baisden. “I am going to work with my full team of advisors in determining what the best course of action is for dealing with Dak Draper’s future in the NWL,” Baised wrote on Twitter.

Draper used two of his Draper bombs but couldn’t pin Meeks, even after using chairs to Meek’s back repeatedly. Meeks put on his cape and hit his finishing move, “comic mischief”, but Draper was able to kick out.
 
The finish came when Draper used Meek’s own cape, tied to the ropes to choke out the challenger and the referee had no choice but to stop the contest.
Draper who went to the hospital after the match to receive stitches for a cut near his eyes, continued to attack Meeks after the match. Draper wrapped Meeks legs around the ring post and repeatedly hit Meeks with a chair in his already damaged knee.
Looking at the company website, Meeks is not advertised for upcoming shows through September and Draper could be stripped of the title as he is listed on events, but his matches are not advertised as title matches.
The crowd the Scottish Rites Temple was down from normal, estimated at 225 fans as the WWE was at the Sprint Center and likely hurt the normally large crowd.
In other matches, The Besties in the World defeated the Howlettes in a wild brawl to advance to the finals of the NWL Tag Team Tournament,
Jack Foster defeated Michael Strider and Mike Outlaw defeated Niles Plonk.
After the match, a security video played, showing Plonk’s butler, Belvedere was not really injured, which freed Red Cloud from his commitment to serve Plonk.
Also, Thor Theriot defeated Maverick by countout,
Devlin defeated Gil Rogers, Jet Royal defeated Ken Dharma and
Jeremy Wyatt pinned Anthony Guitteriez.
There have many been many, many great wrestling matches so far in 2017. Two of the best occurred in the NWL Saturday night, September 2. The Draper vs. Meeks and Wyatt vs. Guittereiz matches were among the best of 2017 on any level.

RIP Beautiful Bobby + Bobby Dean Tovey Memorial Fund Info

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 3, 2017

The office of NWL send their best wishes to the family and friends of pro wrestler Beautiful Bobby  below. I had the honor of covering at the Scottish Rite Temple when he face NWL KC Champion Dak Draper recently as well as at SICW through the years in excited matches that left the fans entertained each and every time.

Brian Kelley- MWR Owner and Editor

We were informed late last night of the passing of Beautiful Bobby. Bobby was a second generation wrestler and son of Pro Wrestling Hall of Famer, Lord Littlebrook. He was known throughout the world for his high flying style in the ring as well as appearances in television and in film. We were fortunate to have him join our locker room and fight in a NWL KC Title match earlier this year. We hope that you will join us in sending thoughts and prayers to his family.

Meet Bob Backlund at MMWA Sept 9th + MWR Champ Ace Hawkins vs. Gary Jackson

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 3, 2017

This coming weekend history will be made when the former WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World and former NWA Missouri Champion Bob Backlund will be at the South Broadway Athletic Club to be inducted into the St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame. Backlund will be honored along with the late Édouard Carpentier.

Admission to the 4 P.M. Induction and Q&A is $10. Admission to the 5 P.M. Bob Backlund Meet-and-Greet is $10 and includes a free 8×10 photo.

Admission to these back-to-back events is separate from the MMWA Wrestling event at 8 P.M.
South Broadway Athletic Club
2301 S. 7th Street, St. Louis 63104

The St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame is located at the South Broadway Athletic Club. It was originally housed in the Pro Wrestling Shirt Shop in the South County mall. Current board members include: Herb Simmons, Nick Ridenour, Larry Matysik and Tony Casta. The Hall is still open for inductions. Matysik explained the need for our Hall of Fame:

The role of St. Louis and the early success of “Wrestling at the Chase” in wrestling, becoming a hugely popular endeavor… is ignored by a company that wants to rewrite history. Had St. Louis not accepted wrestling on television as it did, the sport might never have developed as it has over the decades. Any legitimate Hall of Fame needs to recognize that fact.

Missouri Rankings Update: Lights Out! Adrian Surge’s title aspirations & winning ways land him in the Top 10

Posted by Ben Simon on August 31, 2017

MO Rankings

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through October, 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

MOVEMENTS & EXPLANATIONS

CAce Hawkins is the State champion again.  “The Ace that runs the Place” dropped Brandon Espinosa with a DDT in a No Holds Barred match on July 22 to win the title.  So, as he says, cheer for him.

#1Dak Draper won all four of his singles matches these past two months, including his war with Jack Foster on August 11.  “The Mile High Magnum” is 17-0 total.  No one can defeat the NWL Kansas City Champion.

#4Maverick drops two spots due to his disqualification loss to Gary Jay on July 15.  This allows for some strangeness.

#2Jon Webb advances one spot with a time limit draw with #9Leland Race, which brings Race back into the fold.  The two rematch in an Iron Man match on September 9.

Niles Plonk’s manservant #3Belvedere was inactive this period but still moves two spots up on the list.  How?  Consider: his successful time as The Iceman is still factored, Maverick lost points, and Niles Plonk’s other manservant (by stipulation) Red Cloud has dropped off the list due to inactivity.  Wow.

#5Adrian Surge is on a winning streak as he debuts on the MO Top 10.  “Lights Out” has turned his career around, even winning Dynamo Pro’s Riot on the River tournament… and that wasn’t even factored into the list, as it was in Illinois!

#6Blaine Meeks is fully recovered from his injury, but “Captain KC” advanced a spot anyway due to Jack Foster’s departure from our list.

#7Jeremy Wyatt explodes into the modern Rankings for the first time.  “The Monarch” defeated Skyler Beckett, “Sharkbait” Gutierrez, and Jack Foster.

High Risk Wrestling’s top dog #8Jay Howard holds his spot and #10Todd Letterman barely hangs on after disappearing from the Missouri scene.  When he does return, the big man will revert back to his real name, Kevin Lee Davidson.
