On April 18th, 2015, fans of WLW saw a memorable night of professional wrestling action topped off by former WWE Tag-Team Champion – Trevor Murdoch – teaming with WLW Heavyweight Champion and son of WWE Hall of Famer – Leland Race – to take on the tag-team formerly known as the Gold Exchange (Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek). This match left the crowd wanting more, as they saw Superstar Steve having to revert to using an illegal maneuver in order to win the match. Under the watchful eye of the owner and CEO of World League Wrestling, Harley Race, the result of the match was reversed due to the actions of Superstar Steve. Also, a match was made for a No-DQ tag-team match to be scheduled against the two teams at the next event scheduled in May.

Now, the event has been scheduled and match has been set! On May 30th, pro-wrestling returns to the Race Wrestling Arena! Harley Race has made the match-up of Trevor Murdoch and Leland Race versus Dangerous Derek and the 2014 Harley Race Invitational Tournament winner – Superstar Steve – in a no disqualification match. This means that anything will go!

On April 18th, WLW fans also saw Michael Magnuson take on the masked marvel known as Air-Raid. Magnuson has been associated with the faction known as the Black Hand Warriors for quite a while, but as of late, he has been in singles competition. Air-Raid has asked WLW staff to make a rematch for the May 30th event and it has been granted!

Jay Howard, who debuted on April 18th at the Race Wrestling Arena, will be back in action that night. “The Freestyle Phenom” has been training at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy for just shy of a year, and his preparation has paid off. Fans saw him gain a victory against Steve Austin’s “Broken Skull Ranch” participant – Dustin Bozworth.

Dave Delorean, leading member of the Black Hand Warriors and also a participant of the finals for the WLW Tag-Team Championship tournament, will be taking on Brandon Espinosa.

Also in action will be Steve Austin’s “Broken Skull Ranch” participant Dustin Bozworth will be going one on one with Evan Morris

A Benefit For Joseph Fender Recap by Jack Tierney

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 12, 2014

wlw new

By Jack Tierney

The opening match between Superstar Steve Fender and Ace Steel was declared a no-contest by referee Brandon Schmitt due to interference by Trevor Murdoch and Jack Gamble. Murdoch entered the ring to assist Steel which prompted Gamble to come to the aid of Fender who was now being double teamed. While there was no decision in this match, challenges were issued and accepted and the 4 grapplers agreed to meet in a tag team match which would later be tonight’s main event.

The second match saw Dakota pin Marc Godeker.

Tied at 2 wins each, Stacey O’Brien and Heather Patera met in the third match to finally determine the WLW Ladies Champion in their best of 5 match series. When it appeared that Heather was pinning Stacey, actually both wrestlers had their shoulders to the mat and referee Brandon Schmitt began to count out both O’Brien and Patera. But before he got to 3, O’Brien was able to lift her shoulders and gain the pin fall over Patera to become the new WLW Ladies Champ.

The fourth event was a 3-way match for the NWA Illinois State Championship with challengers Kyle Roberts and Dustin Bozworth facing titleholder Evan Money Morris. Morris successfully retained his title by pinning Bozworth.

The fifth bout was a rematch from August of 2013 in Linn, MO and Jon Webb once again pinned Brian Breaker.

Match #6 was for the WLW Heavyweight Championship and pitted champion Leland Race against the challenger Elvis Aliaga. Race pinned Aliaga in 12:15 to retain the title.

And in the Main Event, the final match of the evening, the team of Superstar Steve Fender and Jack Gamble defeated Trevor Murdoch and Ace Steel when Fender pinned Murdoch in the 1 fall event.

LELAND RACE REGAINS THE WLW BELT FROM ACE STEEL

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 28, 2014

 photo 01_zps47fa9eb3.jpg

World League Wrestling’s camp show was featured for the very first time at Race Wrestling Academy in Troy, Missouri. This year the camp not only featured the usual suspects of the top promotions in the world including World Wrestling Entertainment, Pro Wrestling NOAH, but as well New Japan thus improving on a camp that is the premier week in the Midwest year in and year out.

Trainers throughout the week would include Harley Race, Dr. Tom Prichard, Beautiful Bobby Eaton, Taiji Ishimori, took part in teaching valuable lessons and advice to students from around the world. After a week of dedication and hard work from everyone involved, Saturday night would be for the fans with a night filled of WLW action.

Dreams happen at WLW in November, and this year was no different as the doors opened at 4 for those that were fortunate to take the opportunity to meet and greet with the legends as well as having their photo taken with Race, Funk, and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton while having the rare chance to hold onto Race’s NWA Worlds Championship belt that they were able to get printed off as an 8×10 so they could get them autograph from the wrestling greats.

The main event would feature the WLW Champion Ace Steel defending his title against the man he defeated for the belt on July 26th, in Troy, Missouri, Harley Race’s son LeLand Race. The challenger Race quickly took it to the champ, causing Steel to retreat. If Race had learned anything during the summer of 2014 from “Crazy” Ace Steel is that he a master of the mind games, so Race was calm and collected during the stalling and complaining from the champ.

Race forced the action and was able to have Steel reeling, but as the action spilled onto the outside, pandemonium was in full effect. As Steel attempted to chop Race, Race was able to move in time causing the champ to deliver a painful blow to himself onto the outside steel turnbuckle. With the action back in the ring, submissions were traded between two of the great wrestlers of today, yet it would be Leland Race who would seal the victory when he reversed a powerbomb into a jack knife pin .

World League Wrestling, a professional wrestling company owned and operated by 8-Time NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Harley Race, has is celebrating its 15th year of being in business. They have recently relocated to Troy, MO – a suburb of St. Louis – to rejuvenate their fan base and to also expand it. Still keeping their traditional venues, they also look to expand where they host their wrestling events.

The next stop on the 2014 War of Wrestling tour is in Richmond, Missouri on November 1st, 2014! The event will be held at the Richmond Community Center. This area has been VERY good at bringing in great fans to World League Wrestling, but also serving the community at the same time! We have raised more than $2000 to help support local charities, families, and groups that are in need of some form of assistance. “For many years, fans have given their support for professional wrestling, World League Wrestling, and Harley Race”, says the president of WLW – Harley Race – “Professional Wrestling has been my life since I was 15 years old and it’s been very good to me. So now I want to give back and provide fans with the opportunity to see the future of professional wrestling at the same time. WLW is just that, the future of professional wrestling!”. This time, WLW will be raising funds for 2 separate groups – the Miss Ray County Pageant Scholarship as well as Team Stacie.

The main event that night will feature a very special 8-man tag-team match. This match-up will feature the top superstars of World League Wrestling pitting WLW Heavyweight Champion Ace Steel, Dave Delorean, Michael Magnuson, and Elvis Aliaga against the current Tag Team Champions – High Level Enterprise – and two unknown opponents that will be decided earlier on that evening. This match-up will be one to remember!

Another match that will be one to watch is for the WLW Ladies Championship as the best of 5 series will continue that evening. This match has former champion Stacey O’Brien against current champion – Miss Natural. Currently, the series is tied 1 to 1 so whomever wins on November 1st will be leading the series and will be one more win closer to declaring who is the best female wrestler in WLW!

Other wrestlers scheduled to appear are “The Ego” Dustin Bozworth, Superstar Steve Fender, Kyle Roberts, the masked Air-Raid, John E. Rock and more!

In the spirit of Halloween the night before, fans are encouraged to wear their costumes to the event! For those that do wear them to the event, you will receive $2 off tickets (only applicable if you purchase tickets the night of the event however.)

Tickets are available at Academy Bank in Walmart and the Richmond Collector’s Office. They are also available to purchase online at http://www.harleyrace.com. Advanced ticket prices are $10 for General Admission and $15 for Golden Circle tickets.

2014 Harley Race Wrestling Camp

If you have had the dream of becoming successful in professional wrestling, then there is an opportunity that awaits you. An opportunity that provides the younger generation of wrestlers and also aspiring wrestlers the chance to get an in-depth look on how training is performed at a world-renowned wrestling academy.

The Harley Race Wrestling Academy is continuing the tradition of the week-long training camp this year, and with it being the 15 year mark, we are pulling out some big-time stops. In years past, WLW and the Academy here strive to give the students an opportunity like no other by giving them the chance to meet, connect, network, learn, and get hands on training from some of the best trainers in and around the world. In 2014, the camp will be nothing less than extraordinary.

With the recent move to Troy, MO (a suburb of St. Louis, MO), we look to host the biggest camp to date. We have had some attendance that will be hard to reach, however, we are confident that our stellar cast of trainers will be able to provide you, the student, with knowledge that you cannot get anywhere else.

Trainers for this year’s camp will include the following:
1. Dr. Tom Prichard – Trainer of many current and past WWE superstars such as Kurt Angle, Edge, Mark Henry, Curt Hawkins, The Miz, and many more. Former head trainer of OVW and FCW (WWE developmental territories).
2. “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton – Legend in professional wrestling who had a remarkable career both in singles and tag-team competition. He was also a trainer at the WCW Power Plant as well as an agent for the company.
3. Taiji Ishimori – Representing Pro-Wrestling NOAH, this lightening quick wrestler will be attending the 2014 Camp to provide his knowledge to the participants of the camp. Last year, he attended the camp and received many rave reviews. This year, he comes to us and is looking forward to training with us.
4. Gedo – Currently one of the wrestlers from New Japan Pro-Wrestling this will be the first time in many years that the pro-wrestler known as Gedo has been to the United States. His career has him recognized as the “Dusty Rhodes of Japan”. His personality and charisma helped him earn this moniker.

There still could be another name added to the already-stacked list of trainers. If anymore are announced, you can find them listed on our website at http://www.harleyrace.com/2014Camp.html. Also available on the website is a form that you can either fill out online or print out and mail in.

Also, bear in mind that this camp isn’t just for people with experience. It is also for people with little to no training, referees, and more!

Cost for this camp will be $500.00 and is only for the camp participation. Lodging, travel, and other fees are not included in this price. We have arranged for hotel discounts as well as a gym discount for the week.

We suggest that if you know someone that would also like to participate, then try and get them to come with you. This way, your travel expenses will be cut in half. Depending on the number of people, we will have 3 rings set up. This way, more people will get the opportunity to stay active throughout the entire day. The training schedule is up on our website as well as other necessary information.

If you have any other questions at all, please feel free to give us a call at 573-392-4100 or email camp@harleyrace.com.
