Missouri Rankings Update: The last proper Top 10 for awhile?

Posted by Ben Simon on July 6, 2020

MO Rankings

SEE THE RANKINGS

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through August, 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

MOVEMENTS & EXPLANATIONS

This was an abbreviated period, with only one event held (Cape Championship Wrestling on June 27). From that card, only one singles match happened. That means that every wrestler in the database except for “Sexy” Sarge O’Riley and Brandon Barbwire was inactive.

Ricky Cruz, Jacksyn Crowley, Brian James, Gary Jackson, Curtis Wylde, and Frankie D all drop through no fault of their own.

#1Adrian Surge and #2Mike Outlaw are clearly the top wrestlers in the State. The semi-retired #3Ace Hawkins and #4Moses bump up to incredibly high positions due in part to their busy schedules before the COVID-19 shutdown.

#5Moondog Rover, #62.0, and #9Brandon Espinosa return to the list. Debuting are #7Austin Cravens, #8Camaro Jackson, and #10C.J. Shine.

Honorable mention to The Snitch, who is the only wrestler eligible to be ranked just outside of the Top 10.

Seven events are scheduled in July and August, with six having begun advertising.

The rankings system will not freeze during the COVID-19 event cancellations. While our abilities to hold events are limited, time is not. Time factors decay into the wrestlers’ rating numbers. In the months ahead, we will see wrestlers drop from this list through no fault of their own.

When events return, the wrestlers’ ratings will be able to change rapidly based on a win or loss, much like when this system was in its infancy.

Missouri title belt in Studio B

Can the Missouri Title be decided in my empty garage?

The rules for the Official Missouri Rankings and the State title decree that title bouts can only take place at events sanctioned by the Missouri Office of Athletics. In theory, if a promoter staged Surge vs. Outlaw in his garage, and paid for a State inspector to be there, it could happen. The spectacle would come at a guaranteed loss to the promoter, so it is unlikely.

Ever since the most recent MWR champion Farmer Billy Hills retired in October, 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 the bottom of our Champion page.

Brand New Book : When It Was: My Life on Both Sides of the Camera By Scott Romer & John Cosper

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 14, 2020

How cool is that to wake up to a message from Chris Monaco and seeing my book has been published. I am now a published author.

I want to thank, co/author, John Cosper for making a dream come true. He was easy to talk to and was there
every step of the way as he interviewed me and my friends and put it in a book. There are well over 200 photos from my adventures in the book.

For those that are interested, .I will have just a limited amount of Special Edition Hard Cover books on hand in the next week that I will personally autograph.They are $45.00 and I will personally ship it out to you. The hard cover book sales would definitely help me out during this Corona Outbreak as all my gigs have been cancelled and I have no money coming in.

I do accept all credit cards. If interested, please email or message me.
scott@scottromerphoto.com with your telephone #

They will be available in about a 2 weeks. They are also available at Amazon by clicking here.

RIP Wrestling Promoter and Former Wrestler Tony Casta

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 4, 2020

Tony Casta with his wife Wanda

It is with great sadness that we are to report today that our longtime friend Tony Casta has passed away. Fans of today know Tony as the man that you first saw along with his wife Wanda as you entered the historic South Broadway Athletic Club each and every month in St. Louis.

Tony Casta was always welcoming to all his fans and took time to tell stories of matches and shows that he had promoted in days gone past. His promotion MMWA to this day can lay claim to being one of the most successful long term promotions in the country packing sell out crowds year after year. Casta would team up with fellow promoter Herb Simmons to do joint shows under the MMWA-SICW umbrella. The two often teamed up to support various fundraisers to give back to the community. His life would not only touch the fans but many wrestlers you and old that he worked with. Chances are if you have seen a wrestler in the Midwest during the past 40 years they have worked with Tony Casta at one point or another.

In 2014 Missouri Wrestling Revival knew that he was an obvious choice for the MWR Lifetime Achievement Award. A great write up was done for the announcement of Tony Casta as the recipient of the award was done by Jimmy Harris and I welcome you to take the time to read it here.

Other Awards

2018 Hall Of Fame Class The Independent St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame.

2018 Hall of Fame Class The Midwest Independent Wrestling Hall Of Fame.

We would like to send our deepest condolences to his lovely wife Wanda, as well as his extended family and friends during this trying time. We will miss his smile and handshake as we enter the doors at the SBAC.

On a personal level, thank you Tony for your friendship and support of MWR. Today is the first day we are without you, but we will always remember you Tony.

Missouri Rankings Update: COVID-19 hiatus begins

Posted by Ben Simon on April 23, 2020

MO Rankings

SEE THE RANKINGS

The new Official Missouri Rankings list, good through June, 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

MOVEMENTS & EXPLANATIONS

This was an abbreviated period, with only three events at the beginning of March. One of those (MMWA 3/14) was during the pandemic, and is likely the last professional wrestling event in Missouri for many months.

No changes in the top five spots, and of them, only #1Ricky Cruz wrestled. He earned a victory over the overmatched Damion Cortess. #6Gary Jackson just barely passes the activity threshold and returns to the ranks with a win over Ryan Ash at the South Broadway pandemic event.

#9Ace Hawkins and #10Moses enter the Top 10 after the inactive departures of Sean Patrick, Steve Fender, and WLW king Derek Stone. Hawkins has explicitly announced the end of his regular wrestling career, so this is a bonus. For “The Deliverer” Moses, his debut on the list is earned, as the WLW Tag Team champ is on a five match winning streak.

The rankings system will not freeze during the COVID-19 event cancellations. While our abilities to hold events are on hold, time is not. Time factors decay into the wrestlers’ rating numbers. In the months ahead, we will see wrestlers drop from this list through no fault of their own.

When events return, the wrestlers’ ratings will be able to change rapidly based on a win or loss, much like when this system was in its infancy.
