Championship Mission

This web site sanctions the Missouri Heavyweight Championship.

Our mission is fivefold, to:

  1. Increase our Champion’s marketability
  2. Add depth to promoters’ cards
  3. Promote the MWR brand
  4. Gain the public’s acceptance as the true State pro wrestling title
  5. Track a modern recognizable lineage of the best independent pro wrestlers

The title is to be contested at all events in Missouri where the Champion wrestles a singles match.  The belt is not affiliated with any one promotion.  Rather, the goal is to have one cross-promotional Champion for MWR’s namesake state.

Because the Championship is promotionally-neutral, every promoter has the choice to recognize it at their events.  Even if a title match is not announced live as such, it will be acknowledged on this site.  There is no sanctioning fee associated with this title.

Championship Policy

To become Champion, one must defeat the reigning Champion by pinfall, submission, stoppage, or a special stipulation in a Missouri match.  All applicable bouts must be sanctioned by the Missouri Office of Athletics.

Championship vacancies can be filled in the following two ways:

  1. MWR’s Nos. 1 and 2 contenders wrestle one another.
  2. If the Nos. 1 and 2 contenders choose not to wrestle one another and either of them wrestles No. 3, No. 4, or No. 5, the winner may be awarded the Missouri Heavyweight Title belt if the Editorial Board deems the contenders worthy.

Here are the five situations in which a Champion can lose his belt:

  1. The Champion loses a match in Missouri.
  2. The Champion retires from wrestling in Missouri.
  3. The Champion does not schedule a match in Missouri for 18 months.
  4. The Champion does not schedule a match in Missouri with a Top-5 contender for two years.
  5. The Champion tests positive for a banned substance.

All “matches” are defined here as singles bouts between non-midget men.

Missouri Title belt 2

About The Belt

MWR’s beauty is a unique replica, dual-plated with zinc and gold, crafted by Dave Millican in 2014.  While it’s not the original belt from Sam Muchnick’s St. Louis Wrestling Club, the style was chosen for its recognition.  Millican is an artist who makes most of WWE’s championship belts.  Our belt is featured in this video.
