From Referee Jay King


This past Saturday at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club I worked my 1000th match! It’s been just a little over 7 years. It was a tag team match with these guys. Pretty crazy match. The guy with the pig mask licked my face with that nasty green tongue. Eight years ago I would never thought I’d be doing this, hanging out with wrestling legends, and doing matches in Japan. Now to start the next 1000.

Two ‘Rise Up’ To Be Wrestling Superstars

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 10, 2020

Zach Overton makes his entrance in PWA’s January 25th event in Springfield.

JACKSONVILLE – Zach Overton was a wrestling fan his whole life, but thought he couldn’t do it because he was ‘too small’.  “I saw guys like the Young Bucks, Shawn Michaels, and others tearing it up and wanted to go.”

The Routt graduate planned to begin training between semesters at college, but received a diagnosis of Hodgkin Lymphoma, a type of cancer.  Overton battled the disease for four years before radiation treatment permitted him to start training in 2018.  “Even if it meant not being around very long I had to wrestle in some capacity.” 

Overton catches his opponent with a big boot.

Overton contacted Pinfall Wrestling Association who housed its training facility in Auburn, but it had just closed.  Given the suggestion to seek training in St. Louis, he chose Race Wrestling Academy in Troy, MO.  “Harley Race is 100% the reason choosing the academy I did.  I had a chance to meet and get to know Harley during the last year of his life.” 

Antioch native Julia Applegren was inspired to become a wrestler as it had everything she ever wanted in one career.  “Fitness, modeling, acting, bodybuilding, public speaking, I love dressing up as a character and having a platform to inspire people to love performance being who they want to be judgement free.”

After training for three years in the Chicago area, she had her first match at Evolve.  Applegren’s nervous excitement and adrenaline was nothing she had ever experienced before.  “Being the center of attention is something you have to own and feel confident doing which are some things I processed in the aftermath.”

Julia, who competes as “Jay Raves”, will have her 20th career match challenging for the women’s title in her PWA debut against “Harley”.

KC Jackson (Overton’s upcoming opponent) hits Bryan Ealey with a flying clothesline.

Zach reached out to PWA again to join the organization after they reopened Pinfall Academy inside the old Black Sheep Cafe in Springfield.  Competing as “ZC Hendricks”, he will face KC Jackson, a 15 year veteran from Decatur.  He is “most excited” to have his fifth official match in his hometown, in which the event “means more to me than anything else I’ve ever done in my life.” 

The Pinfall Wrestling Association event “Rise Up” will be held at Bogarts Banquet Hall on Saturday, February 15th at 2142 East State Street.  The main event will feature regional heavyweight champion Jimmy Karryt defending against The Great Cardini plus four other matches.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with bell time at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance via http://tiny.cc/pwatix $12 at the door, with kids ages five and under free. More information on the PWA can be found at http://fb.com/pwaspringfield

Missouri Rankings Update: “Volatile” Curtis Wylde and others bring huge turnover to Top 10

Posted by Ben Simon on January 10, 2020

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


Five new wrestlers have entered the Top 10 after the last two months. #7Ace Hawkins, #9Barackus, and #10Jason Vaughn return, while MMWA titleholder #4Curtis Wylde and #8Sean Patrick appear on the list for the first time.

The biggest match last period was #2Adrian Surge turning back the challenge of #5Mike Outlaw to retain his Dynamo Pro belt. Surge advances two spots, just behind #1Ricky Cruz. Outlaw falls two spots.

Promoters and wrestlers continue to ask how a new Missouri champion will be crowned. It will be one match, one-on-one, based on the rules stated on our Champion page:

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.

With Cruz being dominantly at the top at present, a match for the crown during January or February would have to include him.
