Missouri Rankings Update: Jacksyn Crowley’s time is now!

Posted by Ben Simon on May 4, 2019

MO 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


CAce Hawkins finished off three challengers this period (including rival Brandon Espinosa in a Last Man Standing war), continuing his cumulative longest Missouri title reign in modern history.

#1Jon Webb and #2Mike Outlaw had excellent undefeated performances in the last two months, so they take the spot of the former top dog, #3Brian James. “Da Bomb” James lost the MMWA title to Barackus on March 9.

A new CCW champ was crowned when #4Jacksyn Crowley beat #7Jake Dirden on April 27. As a result, Crowley takes Dirden’s spot in the ranks, and “Dirdey” slips three spaces.

#5Adrian Surge is back! “Lights Out” regained the Dynamo Pro title against Makaze on April 20. Surge switches places with #6Karim Brigante.

#8Steve Fender returns to the list after going 3-0 in March and April.

#9Jason Vaughn and #10R.W. Harty debut on our list. “The Fury” Vaughn’s feud with Derrick King has solidified himself as AHCW king. “The Southeast Missouri Outlaw” Harty has wrestled consistently, and his most recent matches made him eligible.

Makaze and Jack Gamble have seemingly retired; both men drop from the rankings. Gamble left his boots in the ring after a loss to Webb at WLW’s biggest card of the year, and Makaze lost a retirement match.

Jayden Dominic Rose lost his spot in the Top 10 when he lost his WLW Junior Heavyweight crown to Da’Marius Jones on March 9.

Tonight I was privileged and honored to be invited to the 54th Anniversary of the Cauliflower Alley Club where my great friend Herb Simmons has the distinguished honor to present Larry Matysik’s Pat wife with the Posthumous Award for his dedication to Professional Wrestling.

Herb delivered an excellent speech inducting Larry and sharing their life together in professional wrestling. I cannot think of a better person to bestow this deserving honor on Larry.

Support Pro Wrestler Adam Raw’s (Sam Richardson) Hafu Comic Book Today, Win a Free Harley Race Autograph

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 1, 2019


We would like for the fans of MWR to take the time to support Pro Wrestler and Artist Adam Raw‘s (Sam Richardson) wonderful graphic novels Hafu 1 and Hafu 2. Both stories contain awesome artwork from the former LWA/ SLA, Metro Pro and SICW star Adam Raw. While the story explodes off the pages in art form from Raw, the storytelling delivers an epic tale from Writer and Military Veteran Jordan Taylor.

Hafu is the story of a girl who must deal with the stresses of growing up with no mother, an almost-absentee father, and the struggle of growing up in Japan being bullied because of her mixed ethnicity.

When Akiko finds out the dark secret her father is hiding, her life is changed forever. The world of Ninja meets the world of Mobsters in our graphic novel, Hafu.

I have copies of both, you should too.

For more information on Hafu click here.

To purchase one or both click here.

Show Me Comics Shop
Orders typically ship within 3 business days. Included are signatures from the creators!
After reading your copy please visit our Facebook page and leave a review.

For the past ten plus years we have supported the wrestling community and those who have supported us. I am offering to you, the wrestling fan a chance to support Sam Richardson and Jordan Taylor and own a autograph from my personal collection of my hero and the best wrestler on God’s Green Earth, Harley Race.

That is right, a FREE MWR Trading card of Harley Race to the FIRST fan to purchase a combo pack of Hafu 1 and 2 from their website, When purchasing it on their site, send your address in the e-mail and mention Free MWR Harley Race Autograph Trading card and if you are the first fan you will get that card delivered to your house.
