The End of an Era . . . Rhino ends Jeremy Wyatt’s Career and Takes the MPW Title

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 28, 2016

During the MWR Years no wrestler has been more successful in the Midwest by capturing titles, headlining matches and winning awards more than Jeremy Wyatt. His talents and skills earned him the nickname the Belt Collector as he won or challenged for just about every prestigious heavyweight championship in the area.

After an injury that at All American Pro Wrestling that threatened his livelihood that would have ended many lesser men in the sport, Wyatt returned to squared circle to somehow be better than ever. During the 2015 year Wyatt captured the 3XWrestling Championship as well as the Metro Pro Wrestling title on the way to an historic year where he was challenged by many of the best in the sport today. The victories would have been great for any wrestler but the fact that he had to win the matches against the likes of Christopher Daniels, Matt Striker, Matt Cage, Ricky Cruz, and Ace Steel or else see his career come to an end thanks to the evil Commissioner Michael Strider.

With Wyatt getting the last laugh during those epic battles Strider was sure that he had the answer to stop the reign of Wyatt when he signed the 60 minute Iron Man title Match in December against his often rival-often ally Mark Sterling. When the smoke cleared and the dust settled in overtime, Wyatt proved once again why he is had remained on top for so long.

2015 was a very embarrassing year for Commissioner Strider as he had proven unable to strip the title off of Wyatt. As a wrestler Strider was one of the very best in his era, and what made him so great was the desire to win, the never give up attitude that had earned him the love of the fans at one time. With a new year abound he signed one of the toughest baddest men in Ring of Honor today the Beer City Bruiser to deliver the pain on Wyatt in front of a packed house in January.

Wyatt was able to overcome the constant interference from Strider, Sterling to amazingly overcome the power of the Bruiser. Wyatt attempted to taunt Strider once again as he tried to get Strider to come out of retirement to face him one on one in what would have been a historic battle in front of two men who have once been both the most hatted and the most love men in Metro Pro Wrestling history.

Strider’s critics could very well point out many flaws of him as a commissioner, but he had already had a plan B in place as he quickly told Wyatt that his next challenge would come from the ECW Legend Rhino.

You could feel the buzz in the SOLD OUT Turner Rec Center that the man beast Rhino was in the house to do what so many before him was unable to do, defeat the MPW Champion Rhino. Unlike other match-ups prior to their match with the champion, Rhino would make no appearance prior to the war that would explode in Kansas on this night.

The ring would not be big enough early on as the two fought up and down the bleachers of MPW, as the fans ran for cover and tried their best to get a photo of the brutal action as the two me tore into each other. After several moments of intense action Wyatt dropped Rhino on his head with the lightning spiral and had him beat. Stride distracted referee Michael Crase right before the 3 count for what looked to be the win. Yet, Strider quickly got the referee’s attention to stop the count.

Wyatt let his temper get the best of him as he grabbed Strider, delivered a punch that popped the crowd. Seizing the opportunity with Wyatt’s back turned, Rhino drilled Wyatt with the Metro Pro Wrestling title belt. Strider who was arguing with the referee, quickly ordered him to turn around to count the final pin of Wyatt’s career.

With a shocked and stunned crowd watching Rhino becoming the 9th man to hold onto the Metro Pro Wrestling title, Strider celebrated in the ring like he had just won the title himself. As Wyatt laid there knocked out, Strider offered Rhino a 10,000 dollar bonus if he would drop the title and give it to Strider. Rhino would prove to be a mercenary that would earn his money and the legacy as the man that would end the career of Jeremy Wyatt.

Metro Pro Wrestling returns on June 4th and it has been announced that Strider has demanded that since Wyatt is now gone, Strider would be the man to accept Wyatt’s 2015 MWR Wrestler of the Year Plaque.

A special night for the fans as they will also have the chance to meet the tag team legends Demolition and the start of a 16 man tournament featuring many of the best wrestlers in the country to claim the vacant MPW Championship.

Till then let us take the chance to look at some of the highlights of the exciting June event that also featured the 2015 MWR Future Star presentation of Redwing

All American Pro Wrestling’s Main Event 1/14/2012 DVD Review

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 6, 2012


By Brian Kelley

MWR fans I am here to review a show that we covered at the beginning of the year AAPW’S Main Event in Marion, Illinois on January 14th, 2012. For the fans that are new to the site, AAPW has been a part of the MWR family of promotions from the very start. Throughout their history the company has been a proud company who has worked with the communities in southern Illinois for fundraisers while providing exciting wrestling with stars such as the current AAPW Champion Edmund McGuire, “Serial Thriller” Shane Rich, Playboy Paul Rose, the Mississippi Madman and “Homicidal” Steven Davis.

In the spring of 2011, it was announced that AAPW would be heading to the homes via WSIL3 ABC in their area with Collision; AAPW’S version of WWE’S RAW. AAPW would also be led by Chris Hagstrom, a promoter, who like his predecessor Sean Chambers had a desire to deliver Southern Illinois with family friendly wrestling filled with action, drama and a great time.

I won’t lie to you this review will be an inside look at the show from the ring and out as I know some of the men and women involved in making the show such a success.

First we will start with a fellow friend Adam Testa. AAPW Marketing Director Testa and I have different opinions on the way we like our wrestling, yet there is one common ground that we share, the desire to work to make what we do as big as we can. Testa, Hagstrom and AAPW announcer Kevin Hunsperger went to work locally putting up posters, and working the community. The three men were active in getting the word out about the show through various markets via the web. As my friend HVW promoter TNT Keny G says, the last thing you want to do when having a promotion is to have “a secret show”.

While MWR covered AAPW with 10 reasons why you should attend AAPW’S main event, Hagstrom joined Greg DeMarco of 411mania.com and the VOC Nation for an interview, Jerome Cusson, editor-in-chief of Pro Wrestling Ponderings (prowrestlingponderings.com) sat down with Hagstrom and Testa to discuss Main Event. Kevin Hunsperger, AAPW play-by-play commentator, had been previewing all the Main Event matches on his blog, My 1-2-3 Cents.

Fans could listen in on the radio as Hagstrom and Testa were joined by former AAPW Tag Team Champion Heath Hatton for a whirlwind tour of Withers Broadcasting stations during the week on the FM dial and Testa and Hatton were interviewed by Jimmy Fish, live on 1150 AM WGGH.

Flipside, inside The Southern Illinois, delivered with a special coverage of the Main Event, including an interview with special guest “Boom Boom” Colt Cabana that was set to print the Thursday before the show.

Then, on Friday morning, Hagstrom was live with Hunsperger at “WSIL in the Morning” on WSIL-TV 3. Hunsperger was interviewed about facing “The Masterpiece” Mike Masters at Saturday’s Main Event.

So with all that hard work done by the AAPW Staff, there was no way that anyone in Southern Illinois, heck the country could not know about this event.

As the doors open, people keep piling in one after another. I was behind the curtain with my friend and AAPW Champion Edmund McGuire as we watched the fans keep coming in. McGuire turned to me with a smile and said these words to me that I will never forget Brian you have covered us when we had only 20 people and now look at this, wow”. Wow, was right as the building would fill up to standing room only as 405 fans total was ready for wrestling at the Black Diamond Harley Davidson. The building is filled with motorcycles above the ring, no not just motorcycles; Harley’s. This is a great venue for wrestling.

So with 405 fans ready for wrestling, and the emotion and excitement buzzing through the air it was up to the wrestlers to stand up and rise to the occasion.

The announcers on this DVD are AAPW Promoter, Chris Hagstrom, Kevin Hunsperger and former 3-time AAPW Champion Shane Rich.

The cover has great photos courtesy of Jason Wilkey, and the back has an easy to read match line up for this huge show. There is two disc done for this event with images of Colt Cabana on disc one and disc two features McGuire and challenger Ax Allwardt in a stare down.

Before I even put a DVD in the machine, I am impressed with the quality of the box. Now let’s see if the matches were as good on TV as I felt they were when I left the building that night.

Heat Hatton vs. “The Golden Boy” Greg Anthony

A grudge match between the veteran Anthony and young Hatton would start the match. The three commentators do a good job of announcing while not taking away from the in ring action. Anthony had cost Hatton the AAPW Tag team belts and had been a thorn in his side in 2011. This is a great match to start as Anthony is one of the best on the microphone. A student of the game, Anthony quickly lets the fans and us at home know that he is not the one to root for. The promo is nothing to intense, but an easy effective old school promo that has the fans rooting for Hatton off the bat.

The match is very solid as Anthony works over the legs of Hatton, then taunts the crowd. Anthony maintains control of most the match but one mistake from the Golden Boy and Hatton capitalizes with a roll up for the victory. I do enjoy the replay of the final moments of the match as it added to the professionalism of the DVD.

Promo David Ade with Stacey O’Brien

Awesome, wasn’t expecting promos on the DVD. I am a huge fan of promos almost as much as I like the wrestling. The problem in the Midwest is that the wrestlers have very little experience at doing promos so this is great for the talent of AAPW. O’Brien put over that she has been training with Harley Race which is good and lets the fans know the history of her and Rebecca Raze.

M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross vs. Pokerface

The undefeated Pokerface sent out an open challenge to anyone to face him at the Main Event. Fans of WWE’S Tough Enough would recognize him as “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross. Still I could tell most of the fans at AAPW didn’t recognize him but I knew at the end of the day, his skills would make them remember him.

Pokerface may not have the name but you can tell that he puts in the work as he is in top shape. Rich gives a history lesson of Cross’s words to Stone Cold Steve Austin on Tough Enough. Hagstrom hypes the show Collision. This match promises to be an exciting contest.


Matt Cross (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Cross delivers some great action that has the fans laughing and Pokerface in disgust. This a great back and forth wrestling match between these two on this night. This is a wonderful matchup that the fans at home or watching on DVD cannot keep their eyes off the ring.


Pokerface nails some huge knees to Matt Cross on his way to victory. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Pokerface nails a great Ghetto Blaster kick for the win. A fun match. The replay shows that Cross is nailed with a bull’s eye with that kick.

PROMO PAC with Chris Hagstrom and El Generico- El Generico puts over PAC and states he has always respected him and their matches in the past and PAC lets the fans know that it has been over two years since they last met and Generico doesn’t know him at all.

NOTE: I enjoy that the promos are done well before their match instead of right before the match.

Jay Space vs. Billy Hills vs. Justice vs. Paul Rose vs. Bull Bronson Five man free for all.

First man to score a pinfall or submission would be the winner


Jay Spade goes airborne. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

The Farmer is OVAH at AAPW, Paul Rose has been a very entertaining wrestler at AAPW, and Jay Spade seems out of place with these big guys in the ring, can his speed help him win this match? Also in this match is the huge Bull Bronson, though he is very raw, I am impressed with the size and potential for Bull Bronson. Last but not least is Justice, another big guy who debut recently at AAPW.


The Billy Hills gets double teamed from Playboy Paul Rose. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

The farmer and Paul Rose go at it in the ring while Bull takes out Justice early by injuring the arm of the newcomer. Jay Spade takes out the other three guys with a dive from the top rope to the outside. Bronson is a monster tearing up the farmer then turning his attention to Spade. Rose and Bronson seem to have an early alliance but at the end of the day a win at AAPW is vital to capture.

Justice returns and takes out all the men except Bronson. Bronson throws out  Justice then delivers a splash on Rose to pick up the win. I actually liked this match more on DVD than I did live.

Commercials ??? Kind of cool really, don’t know why I think that.

Money Makin’Jam Boyz the Mississippi Madman and KC Jackson vs. Roscoe D. Harris and Bull Bronson.

I didn’t like it when Bull came out right after his match live but with Roscoe’s brother not there for the match I guess Harris figured he needed the stregnth of Bronson to take on the former 3-time AAPW Tag team Champions.

There is no man in the Midwest more popular than the Mississippi Madman. His tag team partner KC Jackson is a great contrast to his partner Madman. During the start of the match they discuss Kevin Hunsperger’s scary situation that will be featured on later in the night as Hunsperger takes on Mike Masters.


Oh my !!(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

The Money Makin Jam Boyz dominate early and when KC Jackson gets in trouble the fans chant loudly for him to make the tag to the Madman. Good double teams until Roscoe made the mistake of throwing Jackson into the Madman thus giving them the hope they needed.

Bronson and Harris gets back the advantage for a moment till Jackson hits a stunner on Harris setting up the Fifth floor slam from the Madman.

PROMO Chris Hagstrom and Colt Cabana – Colt =Charisma

PAC vs. El Generico

This match is worth the $15.00 that AAPW is asking alone.

Disc Two

Promo Bob Fester interviews AX Allwardt and Gaylord Stevens. Wished they had some graphics to tell the fans that don’t know who these guys are. Both of these guys have always been fun giving promos.

MWR’S Dubray Tallman presents Stacey O’Brien with the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year plaque….I am just glad she got in the ring and spoke instead of myself so GREAT JOB Dubray……Rebecca Raze comes to the ring to “cheer” on her rival O’Brien. Shortly after Raze attacks O’Brien looking to make a name for herself.

O’Brien proved why she is the 2011 MWR Wrestler of the Year against the returning Raze. In Raze’s defense she has been out of action for quite some time and found herself in trouble at times against her former foe.

Does Raze hit this big move?? Buy the DVD to find out. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)


Stacey O'Brien starts off the way she left 2011, a winner. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Promo- David Ade with Mike Masters. Masters sends a message that there is about to be an opening for an announcer at AAPW after he is done with him. Ok, he doesn’t say that but that’s what it sounds like.

Colt Cabana vs. “3G” Eric Wayne

Wayne looks to hit a big knee from the top rope. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

This is a match that Eric Wayne would like to win to let the world know that he is among the best in the world. Wayne seems to be really off his game due to the shenanigans of Cabana from the get go.


I dont know who was more surprise that Wayne won, Cabana or the fans but Wayne wins one of his biggest matches of the year. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

It would take some time for “3G” to get on the offense but when he did it appeared that he had the popular Cabana where he wanted as he hit a death valley driver for the upset win.

Promo Bob Fester interviews Edmund McGuire- McGuire promises to maintain the AAPW Championship.

The history of Hunsperger and Masters highlight reel……Great job teaching new fans why an announcer is in this match.

Kevin Hunsperger vs. Mike Masters


Some things in life sound better than they really are. For Keviun Hunsperger being a wrestler was a dream come true, or was it going to be a nightmare in the end? (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

AAPW built this match up perfectly as the bully Mike Masters blamed AAPW announcer Kevin Hunsperger for his losing streak in 2011. I had the feeling that Hunsperger felt he had a chance in this match, though I would disagree with him a 100%. Even though Masters had a rough 2011, he is still one of the most talented wrestlers in AAPW.


Mike Masters toys with Hunsperger(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Masters dominates Hunsperger over and over again. The fans of AAPW is behind the announcer so that is a testament to the booking of this match and the men involved. Now that the match has begun, Hunsperger comes to his senses and realizes that he is in the ring with the big boys.

Hunsperger takes a beating as the fans chant “Lets go Kevin”

Masters brings in a steel chair to the ring to finish Hunsperger. Hagstrom enters the ring to protest to the referee .

That gives Jay Spade the chance to interfere and take the chair away from Masters and level Masters with the steel chair and giving Hunsperger the chance to steal the win.

AAPW'S Main Event DVD starts out letting fans know that this is done by the pros and can be dangerous. Here we see Masters busted wide open. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

AAPW Heavyweight Championship No disqualification

Edmund “Livewire” McGuire vs. “Old School Warrior” Ax Allwardt

Allwardt has been on the hunt to win his first ever AAPW Heavyweight Championship, but his arch enemy Edmund McGuire has stood in his way. The fans at AAPW LOVE Edmund McGuire, and rightfully so, as he is one of the nicest guys in the sport today. McGuire also has one of the most lethal superkicks in the game. If Allwardt was to get the belt on this night he would have to keep away from the finisher of Livewire.


Edmund McGuire throws caution to the wind. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)


McGuire was more focus that I have ever seen him during this match.(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Allwardt and McGuire have met many times at AAPW, and the ussal calm McGuire showed true emotion from the start. Allwardt would receive a belt from his manager to whip the champion with. Allwardt would drop two referee but with the no DQ stipulation, then McGuire hits the third official with a superkick when Allwardt pushed the ref into the kick.


Allwardt uses the belt. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Chaos ensued as the fans chanted “You suck. You suck” to Stevens and Allwardt.

I was for sure it was over when AllWardt hit his patented piledriver then goes for a chair from Chris Hagstrom who fights back, Shane Rich keeps any more damage coming to Hagstrom after he is pushed to the ground.

Back in the ring Allwardt looks to nail a pildriver on a chair but McGuire was able to fight out of it an back drop him on the chair then delivers a superkick on Allwardt.


Boom !!! Superkick (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Stevens sense that his man is in trouble and enters the ring but is met with a superkick. McGuire then returns his attention to Allwardt for a second superkick for the 1-2-3.


Still the AAPW Champion Edmund McGuire.(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

A testament to the wrestlers from the first match to the last to keep all 405 fans involved into the matches. The intermission went a little longer to allow the fans enough time to get autographs and photos and the down time didn’t hurt them one bit as the action in the second half delivered as well.

Positive – The wrestling was entertaining throughout the night. The stars delivered while the local talent proved that the talent in the Midwest is top notch. I have to give big props to AAPW for not trying to have a “Heel” announcer who isn’t funny at all. Hagstrom and Hunsperger deliver a serious steady call of the action while Rich gives the team a wrestlers perespective.

Downfall of the DVD– No commercial for MWR on either disc. hahahhaha

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 8, 2012

By Brian Kelley


Wrestling fans in Illinois should be thrilled about this coming Saturday’s All American Pro Wrestling’s Main Event”. Let’s take a look at just 10 reasons why you should take the trip to Marion, Illinois whether you are from Marion or you are a fan that lives in St Louis. In no specific order and to be honest I could have done more than 10 reasons why you should join us.

1)      First Show of the year! With the weather looking to be great, why not take the kids out to the park during the day then come in when it gets dark and cold as all of your favorite All American Pro Wrestling Stars action is sure to be hard hitting and heated.

Let’s watch "3G" Eric Wayne take young Jay Spade on a trip on pain.(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

2)      “3G” Eric Wayne to meet former WWE, ROH and a NWA World Champion – The third generation AAPW star Eric Wayne was set to meet ROH World Champion Davey Richards this past fall. Due to contract issues that match never happen. Wayne has been in the sport since 2006 and has had a taste of TNA and WWE in past. A win against the respected and VERY entertaining “BOOM BOOM” Colt Cabana could send a message to AAPW management that he is ready for a rematch against AAPW Champion Edmund “Livewire” McGuire that is if you don’t see him on your TV on Monday or Thursday nights.

3)      “The Generic Luchador” El Generico vs. “The Man Gravity Forgot” PAC– Both of these wrestlers have traveled around the world. They have met in the past in thrilling battles that fans have raved about. Let’s take a look at

4)      FREE STUFF: One lucky fan in attendance will walk away with two tickets to the WWE Royal Rumble in St. Louis The fan who travels the farthest to attend Main Event will receive an AAPW prize pack.


Christopher Hagstrom and the AAPW staff has been proactive in building a close relationship with their fans in 2011, in 2012 they will be running on all cylinders with great matches to start the year along with awesome promotions for their fans at the shows, on their website, and on facebook. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

MWR Fans be sure to be a fan of AAPW on FACEBOOK as they have been doing prize packs when they reach 800, 900 and 1,000 fans. Be a part of the growth of one of the Midwest hottest promotions in 2012.

5)      Pokerface Open Challenge–  One of the hottest stars in AAPW is the undefeated Pokerface. How good is he? In October, he was able to get a victory from the 2011 MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espinosa in an exciting match-up.


The All American feels the explosive knees from Pokerface. Can anyone step to and defeat Pokerface? Join us this Saturday to find out. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

While MWR has not been liked his arrogance and attitude towards fans we cannot deny the talent this young star possess. Who will step to meet the challenge of Pokerface? Be there to cheer on the man who will look to end the undefeated streak!


Heath Hatton and Curly tenure as a AAPW tag team Champs has come to an end. Can Heath Hatton fly alone to success?? (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

6)      Bad blood and grudges boil over as Heath Hatton looks to get revenge on “Golden Boy” Greg Anthony.  Heath Hatton is one star that MWR has on the radar in 2012, in 2011 he along with fan favorite Curly won the AAPW Tag titles and feuded with Anthony and his tag partner “Serial Thriller” Shane Rich. Each man would find themselves alone as an injury would take out Shane Rich, while AAPW would fire Curly but this would not cool off the tension between these two.


Hatton has been on the search to work with the very best in the past couple of months as he has made appearances with both Harley Race’s WLW and Ohio Valley Wrestling. This could be his biggest match to date (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Last month Heath Hatton was forced to defend them alone against Team Overkill, and showed true heart in his efforts against Matt Cage and Christian Rose but it would be Greg Anthony who would cost him his tag team titles.

Now Hatton is ready to teach the veteran Anthony a lesson in respect. MWR has always enjoy Anthony here with his own article aptly named “The Golden Circle” in the past we do not condone his actions to this rising star and will be hoping that Hatton can do his wish.


In the past the Golden Boy Greg Anthony has used illegal help from his good friend Shane Rich, here rookie Aiden Young gets blasted from Anthony after Rich harassed him throughout the match. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

That may be easier said than done, Anthony who will be the first to tell you that he “Is the best of the best” and has the credentials to prove it. Down south he has been honored by the former website Rasslin Riot as the 2011 Wrestler of the Year, one half of a former Tag Team of the Year and been involved in the 2011Match of the year.


Shane Rich has been injured and has joined the AAPW announcing crew, but Anthony knows all the tricks in the book and looks to make life hell for the young rising star Heath Hatton. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Anthony has formed a successful tag team with NWA/WCW star  Bobby Eaton with manager Brian Thompson are called Midnight Gold.

In singles and tag competition he  has captured wins against a who’s who in the sport including Jerry Lawler, Jerry Lynn, Buff Bagwell, Jay Lethal, Bill Dundee, Rock N Roll Express, Reggie B Fine, New Age Outlaws, Billy Gunn, Tracy Smothers, Flash Flanagan, and JC ICE.

7)      Kevin Hunsperger needs your support!!  MWR fans know Kevin as the play-by-play commentator for “Collision” and anchor of “News 3 This Morning” on WSIL TV. A great guy who has a true love for the sport. On the other side of the ring will be “The Masterpiece” Mike Masters.


Masters was on a roll early ion in his match with “Dynamite” Seth Knight but came out on the losing end, will look to take his frustrations out and bully our friend and AAPW announcer Kevin Hunsperger. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Masters is a perennial threat to the AAPW Championship in the past and pound for pound one of the best wrestlers in the Midwest. So how did Kevin get involved in a match with the AAPW Superstar Mike Master’s?  Let’s take a look.


The 2011 MWR Female Wrestler Stacey O’Brien was so excited and appreciative when she was offered to be a part of AAPW’S “Main Event” when we saw her around Christmas time. Yet one thing is AAPW did not make it easy in the least when they brought in her former rival Rebecca Raze. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

8)      See the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Stacey O’Brien in action and receive her plaque from MWR’S Diva Dubray Tallman:  It has been over four years since AAPW has hosted a women’s match inside the square circle. The fans asked for their return and AAPW has delivered with one of the Midwest finest Stacey O’Brien.  O’Brien was the first ever MWR Female of the Year and has returned from injury to regain her spot as the top women in the Midwest with great matches against Lucy Mendez, Santana G, Miss Natural and MsChif.

While this award may be a great honor for the hard working woman who now trains with Harley Race at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy in Eldon Missouri, she now has a target on her back. Just as rap legend 2Pac sang during his peak “All eye’s on me” O’Brien is now the hunted. 


Rebecca Raze

The first young women to try to make a name for herself will be a former foe, Rebecca Raze. It has been over 4 years since the two have met but one thing is for sure that they do not like each other in the least. The name Rebecca Raze could be one that you are not aware of but don’t discount her skills and her desire to knock O’Brien off the top of the women’s division.

During the night we are honored that AAPW has invited us to present the “Boston Brawler” with her 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Plaque and support women’s wrestling at AAPW.

9)      See tag team wrestling the way it was meant to be: While newly crowned AAPW Tag Team Champions Matt Cage and Christian Rose of Team Overkill used some legal loopholes to get out of a title defense at Main Event AAPW has offered the fans a great tag match that could have ramifications for the rest of 2011.

The former 3-time AAPW Tag Team Champions the Money Makin Jam Boyz the Mississippi Madman and KC Jackson take on Roscoe Dwayne Harris and Jimmy Wayne Fargo otherwise known as the Convoy. Will the weight and power of Harris and Fargo be an advantage against the MMJB’s Jackson or will the Jackson be able to wear out the fearsome twosome and set them up for the Madman’s finisher the Fifth floor? 

The winner of this match at AAPW’S Main event will earn a tag team title shot in the future.

10)   Two years ago, Missouri Wrestling Revival announced the very first MWR Trading Cards. The set was produced to bring recognition to the wrestlers in the Midwest and the MWR site. From the very first featuring the tag team the Northstar Express, we have done our best to deliver you the fans with a great card that catches your favorites wrestlers in action.


At the end of the year we were at #60 in the set that includes the current Ring of Honor World Champion Davey Richards, former champ Eddie Edwards, Jimmy Jacobs and MsChif to former WWE Stars and Champions Trevor Murdock, U-Gene) EUGENE), former D-X member Road Dogg along with Hall of famers such as Larry Zbyszko, Dave Hebner and Larry Matysik.

With #60 we were excited to have the one and only “Generic Luchador” El Generico to be a part of this wonderful collection.  To the best of my knowledge this will be the first time that MWR fans will have a chance to get their card autographed from the masked man himself in the MWR coverage area. El Generico is one of the most traveled wrestlers in the sport as he is a star with Ring of Honor and has taken tours around the world so fans do not miss this rare chance to see him in action and have you #60 MWR El Generico card signed.

Though we are always excited to add ROH and former  WWE, WCW, and NWA stars to the set, our favorites are the stars of the Midwest that thrill us each and every weekend in the Midwest.


 Many of these men and women are the future of the sport as during our two years we have featured two Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookies of the years in three cards. First we have the 2009 PWI Rookie of the Year as well as the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mike Sydal.  Sydal the brother of WWE Star Evan Bourne was featured in two cards, first the sold out card of #5 and then we provided an update of Sydal with the #37.

The most recent wrestler to be name the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookieof the Year is Ace Hawkins. We were excited to have this high flying star as the man who graced the # 55 card.

Both of these men have been in action at AAPW in the past but will not be there next week but you will be able to get your hands on the following cards and hopefully have them signed from them during the evening.

#38 Stacey O’Brien and # 43 The Mississippi Madman are two of our favorites. The Madman has been both the AAPW Champion as well as an AAPW Tag Champion.


One of the most charismatic wrestlers in the Midwest, he is always a fan favorite.  This will be a great opportunity to meet all three of these stars to have your cards signed.


We love him here at MWR as does the AAPW faithful , he is the AAPW Champion with a familiar foe breathing down his throat, “The Old school Warrior” Ax Allwardt.(Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

That is 10 reasons and we never did get to the main event between AAPW Champ Edmund McGuire and “Old School Warrior” Ax Allwardt. This match that could be featured on any main event in the country today and it will be right here in the Midwest next weekend.


Jay Spade has no fear as he goes to the rafters to get an edge. Spade is just one of the young stars that you will be seeing for years to come in the sport. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)


Always one to love himself, it is the Playboy Paul Rose. Rose never fails to entertain us and will be in action this weekend!! (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Plus stars such as Jay Spade, Bull Bronson, and “Playboy” Paul Rose will be in action during the night as well . So join MWR for a fun filled night full of action as well as many surprises during the night.

9) Money Makin Jam Boyz (The Mississippi Madman and KC Jackson)

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 10, 2011


They have been three times the AAPW and are currently the IWAP tag team champs Their opponents have to deal with the power of the Mississippi Madman and the speed of KC Jackson. The Jam Boyz cause fits for their opponents throughout the match with that difficult combination. This team could very well be higher if the Madman was not such a threat in singles competition winning both the AAPW and PWE titles.

As AAPW moves into the fall they will be featured on ABC affiliate WSIL-TV 3 starting off with a match between Shane Rich and Greg Anthony .

Is a fourth title AAPW title reign in the Money Makin Jam Boyz future ?
