PWP’s Battle Of The Phoenix ’10 Photo Music Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 12, 2010

MWR fans on August 21, 2010 we witness a thrilling night of wrestling at Pro Wrestling Phoenix with some of the top stars in the country. In the main event we witness Jaysin Strife jump over the top rope to allow Jayden Draigo to win the 2010 Battle of the Phoenix.

Thanks to our friends at Pro Wrestling Phoenix we have a full recap of the events including why Strife gave Draigo the win to go along with a music video of the amazing sights and punishing moves of each match.

PWP returns to action on September 18th in Council Bluffs and we highly recommend that you take the opportunity to check out a great night of wrestling.

As the evening started, “Babyface” Tony Cortez came out right away, and called out Jayden Draigo to finally fight him. Jayden came out to the ring and talked with Cortez about their history, and told Tony that the fans who loved him now were the same ones spitting on him and calling him Francis two years ago. He told him to make his own decisions and forget the fans then left the ring. As soon as Draigo left, “The Passion” Zac James’ music hit and he and Ryan Slade came out to the ring. Zac told Tony to put his title on the line right then and there, which most people assumed was Zac using his Anytime Anywhere title shot.

1.) PWP Heavyweight Championship: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Zac James w/ Ryan Slade. This was an intense match with Zac showing a new intensity and focus on winning the championship. Unfortunately for him he fell short and Cortez retained his coveted title. After the match, Zac got on the mic and addressed the fans who were yelling at him that he wasted his title shot. He showed them the contract and pointed out that he never said he was using his title shot, and he never signed the contract, therefore, he still had his Anytime Anywhere contract for either PWP Championship.

2.) Sir Bradley Charles made his return to PWP and defeated Joey Daniels in a very back and forth contest. SBC pulled a lot of tricks out including a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex, but he finished it off with his TKO maneuver.

3.) A returning “Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Jayden Draigo via roll up when Tony Cortez appeared at ringside just long enough to distract Draigo.

4.) Matty Star finally got his revenge against “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in this PWP classic. Both men used every ounce of strength & valor and kicked out of just about every move imaginable. The match ended when Star finally got the upper hand and nailed Wyatt with a Falcon Arrow from the top rope! This match is seriously one of the best contests in the 5 ½ year history of PWP.

5.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via disqualification when Maxwell had the Gator Roll Choke locked in on Colossus and refused to let go even when Colossus got his feet the the ropes. It took a few PWP officials to get Preston to break the hold who showed genuine frustration as he thought the match should have been his. He showed his lack of respect for Colossus who quickly gave chase.

6.) Jaysin Strife defeated Supafli in a fantastic match. Supafli proved to the PWP fans that he can hang in the ring with a former PWP Champion. This match also saw Supafli severely cut open his chin on a dive to the outside. In the end Strife pulled out the victory but both men showed each other respect afterwards. This match was also a classic that won’t soon be forgotten, and was easily the best performance we have seen in Supafli’s young career. He proved that the sky is the limit for this exciting masked star.

7.) PWP Tag Team Championship Match: Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated The Beautiful Bodies of Brian Gott & Derek Cornell. The Bodies were close in this one but not close enough and the PWP fan favorites retained their titles. As soon as the Bodies were out of the way, Zac James’ music hit ONCE AGAIN and he came out, clearly signed the contract and received his PWP Tag Team Championship match along with Ryan Slade.

8.) PWP Tag Team Championship Match: Zac James & Ryan Slade defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to become the NEW PWP Tag Team Champions. During the match, Ryan Slade attempted to use the Canadian flag as a weapon, however the referee caught him and took the flag away setting it on the apron. In a shocking turn of events, ring announcer Axel Greece grabbed the flag and nailed Peppercricket with it as he was attempting a tag team finishing move with Havius! Zac James then hit the Sliced Bread #2 and we had new tag team champions. Afterwards Greece got on the mic, announced the winners of the match and proclaimed that he was sick of being made fun of, beaten up, not taken seriously, and that he would lead Zac & Slade to greatness. He also proclaimed that one of them would win the Phoenix Challenge!

9.) Jayden Draigo won the annual Phoenix Challenge! A lot of interesting things happened in the course of this match, including Havius & Peppercricket immediately going after Zac & Slade as soon as they got to the ring. Abu Colossus was the last entrant and as soon as he hit the ring he went immediately after Preston Maxwell who got eliminated while brawling with each other and probably didn’t even realize it. They kept fighting with each other outside the ring for a good five minutes, fighting their way back to the locker room. It came down to last years winner Jaysin Strife & Draigo, but Strife shocked the crowd by jumping out to the floor on his own! Draigo had the match won, but his look of glory soon turned to anger when Tony Cortez came out and the match was announced: Cortez would finally get his hands on Draigo September 18th when they fight one on one for the PWP Heavyweight Championship!

Strife then said to Cortez that a deal is a deal, and now that Cortez will finally get his hands on Draigo – he needs to remember that Strife did him a huge favor, and Cortez still owes him another shot at the PWP Title.

1. Sir Bradley Charles

PWP fans! Battle Of The Phoenix 2010 was an incredible night full of shock and surprises! Join us on SEPTEMBER 18, 2010 at the Council Bluffs National Guard Armory for a huge night of live pro wrestling!

PWP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP:
”BABYFACE” TONY CORTEZ VS. JAYDEN DRAIGO

Jayden Draigo has been a thorn in Tony Cortez’s side ever since he returned to PWP. Last month, Jaysin Strife jumped out of the ring and allowed Draigo to win the annual Phoenix Challenge. Tony Cortez came out and it became clear that a deal had been made. After months and months of Tony trying to get his hands on Draigo, it will finally happen! Will Tony Cortez continue to prove why he is the champion? Or will Draigo find a way to steal the title away from Tony?

PWP TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP:
ZAC JAMES & RYAN SLADE W/ AXEL GREECE VS. CHRIS HAVIUS & DONNIE PEPPERCRICKET

Last month saw Zac James finally cash in his Anytime Anywhere contract, and he cashed it in right after PWP Tag Team Champions Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated the Beautiful Bodies. In a huge shock to everyone, former ring announcer Axel Greece attacked Donnie Peppercricket during their match allowing Zac & Slade to pick up the victory. He then announced to the world that he was sick of being joked on, not taken seriously and ignored, and he would lead these men to greatness. Havius & Peppercricket will no doubt be looking for huge retribution in this match, and they will be fresh. Who will take home the titles?

REMATCH:
JAYSIN STRIFE VS. SUPAFLI

One match that was talked about so much by all the fans from our August event was Jaysin Strife Vs. Supafli. Supafli has asked PWP officials for a rematch, and because there has been so much buzz about this match, they have agreed! You won’t want to miss this!

ONE SHOT CHALLENGE:
#1 Brett Young will be in attendance and word has it that he will be issuing his “One Shot Challenge!” Last time this happened, Abu Colossus answered the call and defeated Young. Will he taste defeat again, or will he come out victorious?

ALSO IN ACTION: Abu Colossus, Matty Starr, Preston Maxwell, Derek Cornell, Joey Daniels, Jay Johnson & more!

Dubi meets the PWP Fans 8-21-10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 5, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Our trip to Council Bluffs, Iowa turned out to be on a beautiful day. With the fall season upon us and school around the corner for both us we knew we had to make our way to Council Bluffs Iowa just in case we were unable attend later due to time.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix blessed to have a great photographer in Gary  Giaffoglione  there on most shows so we always have a MWR presence at a PWP show. PWP has always been great to work with and if you remember they are the premier promotion for fresh baked cookies at their concession stand. We took home eight rice krispy treats if that tells you anything. Hey they are that good

Brian was excited about seeing Gary once again, and had brought him up a complete set of the MWR Trading cards that have several that feature his photo work such as the Mike Sydal, Sir Bradley Charles and the chilling Jeremy Wyatt card that looks a little sinister. Gary made the trip worth it by giving me a hug (You know I need my attention, I am Dubray of course) so the night had started off right.

Prior to saying our hellos to the staff, we decided to find the restroom that was located in the hallway. Before I got done Brian was talking to some fans that were there an hour early waiting for the doors to open. Brian told them what we were doing and Nancy stated that her favorite was the BIG Abu Colossus. She stated that every time he came out prior to his match she liked to get up and do a dance to let him know that she was on his side. We promised her that if Abu was there on the night she would be among the Dubi Meets the fans.

The doors opened at 6:30 so off the work I went to find fans that were interested in being a part of this edition of Dubi meets the fans. Brian and PWP must have advertised it good or they remembered the last time we did it at PWP and didn’t want to miss it this time because there was a ton of people wanting to get their picture with the PWP Superstars.

Our MWR Wrestler of the night was none other than the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez wore the MWR shirt prior to starting the night off with impromptu win against Zac James.  Before the match started he threw the shirt to Ben Castillo from Fremont, NE. During the intermission he took the time to meet the young fan.

One fan that was a lot of fun to watch during the matches told me his name was Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist from Glenwoood Iowa. When the wrestlers would kick out just in time for the final 3 count he was really into it. He wanted Jayden Draigo but Draigo I was told has been a terror at PWP for some time and can be uncontrollable at times so Brian asked if he could choose someone else. He quickly chose fan favorite Matty Starr.

Ron Blair had no hesitation to who he wanted to have his picture with it was the ever popular Donnie Peppercricket.

Young Michael Barnes from Council Bluffs Iowa was at PWP to see the exciting Jaysin Strife in action. Strife was more than happy to get his picture with Michael.

A regular of Pro Wrestling Phoenix was John Striffler from Omaha Nebraska who told me that he had been a big of wrestling for over sixty years. John told me that he always enjoyed coming to Pro Wrestling Phoenix and tried to make every show. John told me that he was a fan of Chris Havius who was one half of the PWP Tag Team Champions along with Donnie Peppercricket.

As we were taking pictures I was told that little bitty Kaycee’s favorite wrestler was Tony Cortez. Cortez was nearby and snapped the shot of the youngest fan to ever take part in the Dubi meets the fans.

The last time we were at PWP Matty Star was in high demand and on this night it was no different. Starr has been making waves in 2010 where ever we go and we are not the only ones that noticed because just like Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist, Joshua Pope was all smiles as he posed with Matty Starr.

Abu Colossus had his hands full on this night against Preston Maxwell but before his match after intermission he took a snap shot with Nathan Gilchrist.

Nathan Gilchrist and Abu

Adam was a fan of the PWP Tag Team Champions, Havius and Peppercricket and may have been the last person to get their pictures taken with the duo as champs. They would take on the Beautiful Bodies, and would retain the titles but you will have to wait for the recap here at MWR (Or click on the PWP Website if you can’t wait) to find out who would leave Battle of the Phoenix 2010 with the belts.

The last fan that I will introduce you to was really excited to be at PWP and was very excited to have their pictures taken with the PWP wrestlers was Mike Firk. Mike would ask to have his picture taken with Matty Starr, Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket as well as catching me after the show excited about getting his picture taken with the lovely  Angelus Layne and Jaysin Strife.

I looked around to see who my pick on this evening would be and noticed that Sir Bradley Charles had just got done meeting the fans and selling the awesome looking SBC shirt to a fan and had a moment so I asked him to be my Dubi Meets the fans choice and Jaysin Strife was nearby so why not add him as well.

Fans I hope that you enjoyed this edition of Dubi Meets the PWP fans and for more pictures of these fans with their favorite wrestler please click here to see them.

We hope to have a full recap of this show along with MWR’S Introducing Angelus Layne.

Till next time be good and I hope to see you at the show.

Official Results from PWP’s 5th Anniversary

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 4, 2010

1.) “The Passion” Zac James defeated David Clark & Jimmy Rockwell in a Triple Threat Ladder Match! This was an insane battle that saw these guys put it all on the line! Per pre match stipulations, since Zac James grabbed the contract hanging high over the ring, he will now receive a shot at either the PWP Heavyweight Championship or the PWP Tag Team Championship, any time he chooses.

2.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Stephen Saint in about 20 seconds when he rolled Stephen up for the three count! Stephen was furious and shocked, so he demanded a rematch right there, and said if SBC could beat him again, he would quit PWP!

3.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Stephen Saint in about 15 seconds with a Northern Lights Suplex, much to the fans delight. Stephen Saint is now gone from PWP.

4.) Preston Maxwell defeated Supafli via Submission in an excellent matchup!

5.) The Northstar Express returned to PWP to defeat The Beautiful Bodies in an extremely entertaining tag team match!

6.) “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon defeated Hype Gotti in an epic contest that saw both men give everything they had. This is one you HAVE to see!

7.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated The Murder Militia: Jayden Draigo, Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Joey Daniels & surprise entrant Arik Cannon! Cannon shocked the PWP audience by coming out as the 5th member of Murder Militia and attacking Tony Cortez right away! The match was an absolute brawl, wild and bloody, with so many crazy things that it really needs to be seen to be believed! The match ended when most of the Murder Militia were locked out of the cage and the PWP faithful hit move after move on Draigo, ending it with a huge shot to the head by Jaysin Strife with Draigo’s own kendo stick, then gaining the pinfall.

It was an absolutely amazing night of action, thanks to all the fans for making it a huge night to remember!

Here’s to five more years of PWP and don’t forget June 12, 2010 is the next event, only 3 weeks away!

A look at the first half of 2010 in the MWR Coverage area. Nominate your favorite.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 16, 2010

By Brian Kelley

We are very close to the half year of 2010 and what a year it has been!

In the past few months both WWE and TNA have hosted PPV’S with WWE’S Elimination Chamber and TNA’S lockdown that was also headline with a fan interaction that allowed fans to meet stars such as Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Rob Vam Dam, Jeff Hardy and most of the rest of the TNA roster.

Old school fans can be happy that they have had a chance to meet the stars that brought memories that will last a lifetime when at TNA’S legends main event brought in the biggest stars of the 80’s and beyond with Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Sting.

The fun would keep coming when you were able meet other stars such as former WWE World Champion Bob Backland, Roddy Piper, Road Warrior Animal, Jimmy Snuka along with several other greats during Wrestling Legends on Tour.

On the Indy front I have to believe that everyone involved with their promotions needs to feel thrilled with the support and attendance from the fans as attendance and action has picked up for the most part at most shows.

Former WLW Wrestler  Dennis T McHawes released an autobiography called “Blood Tables and Chairs that allows fans to get a glimpse of the Indy scene not to long ago.

Mike Sydal continues his rise to the National spotlight after winning the PWI Rookie of the Year he followed that up by wrestling during WRESTLEMANIA weekend with Ring of Honor in a six man tag team race and earned the pin fall for his team.

Will Metro Pro Wrestling jump over the competition in 2010 with their debut at Memorial Hall on June 4th?

Till then lets look at 2010 shortly and what to forward to.

Let’s start out alphabetical.

3XWrestlingThe 2008 MWR Promotion of the year continues their standard of excellence with some great action. 3XW Heavyweight Champion Jeremy Wyatt and Ring of Honor a World Champion Tyler Black earned a standing ovation in April when the two went to a draw. Rory Fox who came close in 09 by taking out “The Belt Collector” won the May “Gauntlet for the Gold”. This could easily set up Wyatt vs. Fox feud part 2, one that would be great for the fans.

3XW Pure Wrestling Champion Kraig Kessaman has been rolling through the company using the deadly “Nordic Spike” maneuver and has not been pinned at 3XW in 23 months. While 3XW cruiserweight Champion Jimmy Rockwell came very close in defeating 3XW Champion Jeremy Wyatt at the Over the top show earlier this month

On a sad note the very popular tag team The High Flyers of Zach Thompson and Mike Sydal was forced by Todd Countryman to go against each other in a loser leaves town match that saw Thompson earned quite possibly the biggest win his short career by defeating the smoking red hot Sydal.

All American Pro Wrestling – Exciting feuds , shocking moments and near riots mixed in with former WWE and TNA Superstars brought AAPW among the top of the most talked about promotions in the area coverage.

The year started off with the very popular Edmund “Livewire” McGuire holding the AAPW Championship. During a title defense against the popular and powerful Mississippi Madman that would soon end. McGuire’s mountain to retain was huge but the backstabbing of McGuire’s best friend Shane Rich during the match would cost him the title and a feud is set to happen anytime. Rich was suspended for his actions. The fans and McGuire have been itching for a rematch BUT…

The Madman would find himself in the fire quickly as the 2008 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt came knocking for the belt. The Madman would retain but not before a near riot almost broke out. AAPW had no other option but to sign a rematch between the two at the very next show. Problems arose when Rich talked his way into the match making it a 3way and capitalizing by taking home the belt.

As of press time AAPW is set to bring to the Midwest WWE’S Jerry Lawler and Kevin Thorn and more AAPW matches at RENT ONE Park on May 22 in prior to a minor league baseball game. AAPW has also brought in TNA’S Andy Douglas and WWE/ECW’S Simon Dean…. We can all look forward to McGuire vs. Rich in the second half of the year.

High Voltage Wrestling – What High Voltage Wrestling lacked in amount of shows they made up for it in quality of matches and continuing their tradition of debuting some of the top stars in the St Louis area. During HVW’s first year they brought you “The Internaininal Superstar” Kahagas, TNA’S Santana G, The Hooligans, Matt Cage, Zero Gravity and Tony Kozina and in their second year they brought to you the very exciting Ryan Phoenix, Flash Flannigan, Dan the Manand Sir Bradley Charles.

Kahagas vs. Flash Flannigan was an instant hit and when the HVW Tag Champions the Hooligans went against the KC Killers the ropes would break but the action would not. Santana G would earn the respect of one of the greatest women wrestlers in the world MsChif and earn the respect of her and the two would team up once again.

Young Brandon Aarons would get a huge win for the fan favorites by defeating fellow young star Mike Sydal for the HVW Livewire Championship.

The HVW Champion has been defending the title around world and looks to face on all challenges in 2010.

Independent Hardcore Wrestling– IHW has been filled with packed shows with action throughout the building. Filled with stars who do not get as much hype like Billy McNeil, Steve Kennedy, Eric Allen, Mephisto and Brandon Aarons they have made themselves a legit promotion and giving the fans their money’s worth.

Former TNA Star Mickie Knuckles and the Great Cheyenne continue the improvement of the  women wrestling Midwest while Eric Allen’s exciting Illinois state Championship shocked the Midwest. IHW Champion Brandon Aarons match with Kennedy was an instant classic. MR Late Nite looks to make his mark in the Midwest to finish off 2010.

IHW heats up the summer in 2010 with a stacked card on June 12th in Dupo Illinois when Mickie Knuckles returns to take on Mia Martinez, SLAM The Canadian Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Tony Kozina will take on exciting Bailey Mannix; Champions will collide when IHW Champion Aarons will meet IHW Illinois Champion Allen in a street fight.

IWA Productions – One of the biggest announcements of the first half had to do with IWA P bringing at their free Wednesdays show last week when non other than ICP came into bring fans to their feet. So much excitement that IWA P had to turn fans away do to a fire code. ALL for free.

In January they brought in former WWE Superstar the Honky Tonk Man and their students stepped up to provide a much talked about match between Christian Rose and Danny Cannon ladder match.

A mixture of free shows and paid shows that has also showcased Matt Cage taking on former WWE Champion Eugene, Ladies star Ann Brookstone along with “Homicidal” Steven Davis provide the fans with some top notch excitement.

Metro East Championship Wrestling– Wrestling in Woodriver provides the fans with an exciting night to hang with friends and family. The promotion had a set back when the MECW had to announce that champion Mannix was unable to defend due to an injury. Mannix though respect for his talent was hated for his actions meant that possibly one of the fan favorites such as Devin Carter or the “Kid” Evan Money could get their chance as MECW Gold.

Imagine the disappointment when bad guy Eric Allen was able to win the 8 man tournament and gain his second title in months. Who will be able to take the title back from EA? Will it be Carter in his rematch on the 22nd, or will Gabriel Brimstone, Brian Scrilla, or the returning Shawn Santel come back to glory.

MECW Tag team champions The Bayou Outlaws are one of the most underappreciated teams in the Midwest and loved by the fans.

On a National level MECW can hang their head up high Barry Ryte in his opportunity to appear at the 14th annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament later this summer on Sat. July 10, 2010 in Newark DE.

MMWA-SICWThe 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year has seen some exciting new faces and old friends join the veterans of the South Broadway Athletic Club. Impressive Dave Vaughn has taken on all challenges in his way including the powerful Donnovan Ruddick.
Speaking of Ruddick the Manager of Champions Travis Cook looks to take him to the top as he has signed him to his stable “The Connections.” With the skills of Ruddick and the mind of Cook these two could be unstoppable.

Brandon Espinosa has returned with a vengeance and is currently the MMWA-SICW JR Heavyweight Champion as well as the MMWA-SICW Battle Royal Champion. Will he set his sights on becoming a Triple Crown championship?

Life is not all good in the world of Travis Cook; he has agitated the returning MMWA-SICW Superstar Ron Powers and Danny Boy. In Cooks favor is the fact that Gary Jackson has also wanted a piece of his old rival Powers.

On a National scene the St Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame that is located at the SBAC presented Ric Flair, Bobby Hennan, Dory Funk JR and Baron Von Raschke with their HOF Plaques at the TNA Fan interaction.

What Midwest Superstars will make their debut at MMWA-SICW in the rest of 2010? I can not wait to find out.

New Midwest Wrestling – The newest promotion at MWR, New Midwest have been around for a long time entertaining fans in Sprinfield Illinois.

The NMW Roster brings together an exciting roster with Cory Carter, Guy Smith, Ryan Phoenix, Dan the Man and Blake Steel as well the New Midwest Wrestling Champion Jonathan Magnus.

New Midwest Wrestling returns this week with Capital Punishment 2010 as Magnus have his title threatened when Rip Mystic comes after him.

NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling– NWA Dynamo has slowly been building steam heading into the second half of 2010. Home of the NWA Missouri Champion Davey Vega and NWA Central States Championship Mark Sterling they brought us the battle of Champions when the two took on each other during their May 1 show where Vega tapped out to the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

NWA Missouri Champion Vega will look to get back on track when he takes on Dragon Gate star Kyle O’Reilly on May 22nd.

Like I said a quiet year so far for this top promotion but look for them to sprint to the top in 2010.

NWA Supreme – MWR was honored to be invited to check out this exciting promotion early this year and we were impressed. The giant Bear ST Pierre and the electrifying Da Cobra brings to the ring a fast paced wrestling show with a punch in the Face.

NWA Supreme Champion Da Cobra has been red hot and will look to add Danny Cannon on his list of men he sent home packing. Bear ST Pierre has survived the onslaught on Jeremy Wyatt and De Andre King and Guy Smith and on May 29 he will have the formidable foe of Christian Rose looking to take home the title.

. The Hooligans and the Hybrids tore each other apart in the cage and it looks to only getting hotter as the summer comes around.

Fan have to be excited as the NWA Supreme brings you the NWA Midwest Championship match between the Shiek with Joey Eastman and Silas Young as well on the 29th.

Pro Wrestling Epic – One of the youngest promotions in the MWR Coverage area has been working hard to get respect. Signing some of the top names in the sport they boast some of the top talents in the Midwest today.

One fallback to that statement is that the PWE Champion Keith Walker has been in Japan meaning that he is unable to defend the title as needed. Even with Walker out the states they have the new PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons and the PWE tag team Champions Zero Gravity on their roster.

At their only show of the year the night started of with Mark Sterling as the PWE US Champion. Sterling defeated Mike Sydal then announced to the crowd that he was not done. He would be more than happy to beat anyone else in the locker room. Aarons showed true heart by answering the call even though he was defeated by Wyatt earlier in the night. Amazingly Aarons would defeat Sterling and become the PWE US Champion.

PWE and Aarons returns with their biggest test to date when PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons takes on Ring of Honor World Champion Tyler Black go at it in a match that you will not want to miss.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix– The faction known as Murder Milita looked to have PWP on their knees and in total control at the start of the year. The Murder Militia (Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Mark Sterling, Joey Daniels & Jayden Draigo) would find that Team PWP (PWP Heavyweight Champion ”Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket) was not going to back down for nothing.

The bomb is about to go off in the name of WAR Games this coming Saturday. Will the Militia continue to leave the PWP Wrestlers and fans in fear heading into 2010?
Young David Clark, Jimmy Rockwell and Zac James is set to battle in a ladder match for the chance to get a chance at any PWP Championship that night as well.

The PWP Champion Babyface Tony Cortez has defeated Jeremy Wyatt, Joey Daniels Jimmy Rockwell and Jaysin Strife since becoming the Champion last December.

World League WrestlingHarley Race’s WLW took their time to get back in the game in 2010 but it was well worth the wait.

Starting off the year they had a tournament to crown new WLW Tag Champions and lo and behold Steve Fender and Mark Sterling walked away with the coveted tag team titles. Sterling and Fender are two of the most rounded wrestlers in singles, together they are scary good.

On the Singles from the WLW Title has been filled with action as the powerful Trent Stone held the title till in front of over 300 people in Richmond former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch pinned him in a leather strap match to regain the title.

It won’t be easy for Murdoch as Stone, Brian Breaker along with impressive young stars Jack Gamble, Ryan Drago, the Cancun Kid and Eathon Wright will all have their eyes to get to the top of the Mountain.

The WLW Ladies Champion Amy Hennig finds herself with competition all around as TNA’S Santana G earned a DQ victory from Hennig and the unknown Angelus Layne made her debut at WLW Keokuk IA. Some of the most exciting matches in women’s wrestler may well come from WLW.

That is a look at some of the promotions in the first half of the year. We are asking for the Promotions, Wrestlers and Fans to send in their thoughts on who was the best of the best in the first half year at MWR.

There will not be a winner announced for this but this will help the MWR Awards committee to not forget in the 2010 MWR Awards who is deserving. In each category there is some strong competition if the vote was to be voted on today I could not guess who would walk away the winners.

PWP 5th Anniversary Spectacular – 5/22 – WAR GAMES!!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 16, 2010

Come celebrate five years of Pro Wrestling Phoenix on May 22nd, 2010 for our 5th Anniversary Spectacular!

We have a HUGE triple main event in store for all of our great fans!

WARGAMES CAGE MATCH
PWP Tag Team Champions The Murder Militia (Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Mark Sterling, Joey Daniels & Jayden Draigo) Vs. Team PWP (PWP Heavyweight Champion ”Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket)

This war has been waging for over a year now and its time for everything to come to a head. Jayden Draigo returned to PWP and lit a fire underneath the Militia. Last month Abu Colossus returned to PWP and evened the odds. This will be an amazing spectacle that you will not want to miss!

PWP LEGENDS COLLIDE!
“The Anarchist” Arik Cannon Vs. Hype Gotti

Hype Gotti is coming out of retirement for one night only to face a fellow PWP legend who he never had a chance to step in the ring with, “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon. These names have both been brought up many times when talking about the best matches in PWP history and now the time has finally come for them to square
off. This will be one for the ages!

3 Way Dance LADDER MATCH for a shot at any PWP Championship
Jimmy Rockwell Vs. David Clark Vs. “The Passion” Zac James

Jimmy Rockwell & David Clark have formed an alliance of sorts recently against Zac James & Ryan Slade, but when PWP Management offered them a spot in this match they decided to put opportunity before camaraderie! With “The Passion” in the mix, anything could happen here! The winner of this match gets an
opportunity for a PWP Championship match against either the Heavyweight Champion or the Tag Team Champions that they can cash it at any given moment on any future PWP show.

In other action:

* Last month, Sir Bradley Charles continued to impress PWP officials and fans by defeating Stephen Saint. Saint has demanded a rematch, not wanting to accept defeat at the hands of a newcomer to PWP.

* Former PWP Tag Team Champions The Northstar Express finally return to action in PWP! They will be taking on the flamboyant tag team of the Beautiful Bodies, who are looking to make an impact here in Pro Wrestling Phoenix.

* Preston Maxwell will be taking on the masked high flyer known as Supafly.

JAYSIN STRIFE defeats Jeremy Wyatt to become PWP Champion!!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 21, 2009

NEW PWP CHAMP

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

Jeremy Wyatt dominated Pro Wrestling Phoenix since October 2008 when he defeated the powerful Abu Colossus. Like him or not. he was one of the most dominant champions in the Pro Wrestling Phoenix’s history as he knocked down every challenger that he faced. His list of victories was a who’s who of wrestling talent in the Midwest. Abu Colossus couldn’t regain the belt. Wyatt survived a three way with Abu and Brett Young. One on One, Young came close but he went home empty handed. Former PWP Champ Hype Gotti and TNA Superstar Sonjay Dutt did their best in a 3 way but the Belt Collector would not relinquish his grip of his precious title. The list continued as Wyatt had his hands raised after defeating Chris Havius, Tony Cortez, Payday Patterson, and Donnie Peppercricket.

On September 19th Jaysin Strife will go down in the history books as the man to end the dominance of Jeremy Wyatt. Will Jaysin Strife be able to retain his title in rematches will be a headline heading into the end of 2009.

MWR congratulates new PWP Champion Jaysin Strife.

Jeremy Wyatt and Michael Strider receive MWR Awards.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 16, 2009

I am torn on the announcement that I am about to make. After many nights contemplating the future of the MWR monthly Awards we have decided that for the time being that we are going to discontinue that feature from our site. It’s not that I don’t feel as if the awards are a fun part of the site, it’s just that:

1) Many of the awards committee have become so busy with their everyday lives that they have respectfully asked to be taken off of the committee as they cannot honestly vote on the awards and knowingly give an honest vote. Add on the fact that there are so few individuals that keep up with the MWR coverage area (KS, IA, IL, and MO) that could honestly vote on the awards in an unbiased manner.

2) The time that it takes to get nominations, send out the final vote, tally up the votes then look up a picture to make the winner look like a million bucks is considerable. With that said, in the month of August at Lethal Wrestling Alliance, Kari Williams and I were able to deliver two of the 2008 MWR Awards to Jeremy Wyatt and Michael Strider.

The year 2008 will always be remembered as the year of the Rebel. Main events for the man they would call “The Belt Collector” was the norm. Whether he faced “The Future” Donovan Ruddick, Abu Colossus, Davey Richards, Shorty Biggs, Tyler Cook or the man many claim is the best in the Midwest, Dingo the matches stole the show. Wyatt was the talk of 2008 as he tore through 3XW, LWA, HVW, PWP and NWA Dynamo.

Wyatt is one of the most feared and respected athletes in the sport with a bright future ahead of him. MWR was proud to present the 2008 MWR Wrestler of the Year award to Jeremy Wyatt.

On February 2, 2008 in Lawrence, KS Central States Wrestling was on life support, but that did not stop the wrestlers from going out there and delivering a great night of wrestling. The main event was going to be brutal and promised to deliver as, arguably, the top Midwest Talent NWA Central States Champion Michael Strider went against Jeremy Wyatt in a No-Ropes Barbed-Wire Match.

The outcome? A huge win for a bloodied Strider. Wyatt went on to lose a nipple, thanks to getting caught in the dangerous barb wire. The fans were shocked and impressed as these two warriors gave the match of a lifetime—One that they would never forget.

Unbeknownst to many, this match would change the course of Midwest Wrestling. Strider would slowly fade away from the sport as his heart was no longer in it. Jeremy Wyatt would go on to main event wherever he was booked. He become a six-time MWR Wrestler of the month and part of five MWR Matches of the month in the process.

A true passing of the torch match.

In January the MWR Awards will return as we will honor the 2009 MWR Wrestler, Tag Team, Promotion, Female, Personality and Match of the Year. Details will be given around that time.

Thank you for your support and your understanding.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix looks back at 2008.

2008 was a very remarkable year for Pro Wrestling Phoenix. We came back from a four month hiatus in February. We had lost the rights to run shows at our old building, and had some trouble coming up with a new one. Once we decided on the Armory, we were skeptical about how many people could even find the place let alone who would show up. At “Year of the Phoenix 3” on February 16, we couldn’t have been happier with our second biggest crowd ever about 130 people. That night saw a lot of great action, and is notable for being the night “The LONRs” Showtime Darrien Sanders and Mark Sterling won the PWP Tag Team Championship by defeating “Pride and the Passion”, Zac James and Tyler Pride This caused massive problems between Zac and Tyler. At this point “Babyface” Tony Cortez was still PWP Heavyweight Champion, and was able to retain the title in a 3 Way Dance over “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt and Abu Colossus. Hype Gotti began an intense losing streak as well.

“Try and Stop Us Now” on March 15 had one of PWP’s best matches ever, a bout between “The Anarchist: Arik Cannon and Ryan Cruz, one half of the Northstar Express. I highly suggest checking this one out; you can find it on YouTube. “A New Era” in April saw the Northstar Express and Arik Cannon both getting title shots in PWP. However, “The LONRs” and Tony Cortez both pulled through, retaining their respective titles.

This led to our “3rd Year Anniversary Spectacular” on May 10. “The LONRs” once again retained the PWP Tag Team Championship by defeating Ben Sailor and Nate Bash. Hype Gotti continued his losing streak, this time losing to Domino Rivera. This show also saw one of the greats Jerry Lynn show up to wrestle Arik Cannon in an absolute classic PWP match. Zac James finally agreed to fight Tyler Pride, but was only the beginning. A very big surprise also happened when PWP Alumni Payday Patterson showed up to answer Brett Young’s one shot challenge in a very memorable match. Chris Havius made his return to thank the fans, and was attacked by Stephen Saint. The big news here however, was Abu Colossus was able to win the PWP Championship in a 4 Way between Tony Cortez, Jeremy Wyatt and Jaysin Strife, thus ending his 20 month reign as champion.

We started the summer off with two shows in July. The first show saw Chris Havius try to get some revenge on Stephan Saint, however the match ended in a double disqualification. Jaysin Strife finally beat Hype Gotti one on one. Afterwards, Tony Cortez confronted Jaysin about some things that had been happening, especially in last months main event where he helped pin Tony. He attacked him, and it looked like Hype was making the save, but he shocked everyone when he too attacked Strife. It took Vic Victory coming out with a chair to run those two off, and it looked like Simply the Best was back together. Victory and Strife put their differences behind them. Abu solidified his status as champion when he was able to pin Tony Cortez in a one on one match.

Our second July show was our huge Battle of the Phoenix show. This saw 25 contestants get a shot at becoming #1 contender. And who was more fitting to win than #1 Brett Young. He earned a shot at Colossus in August. This was a big night for Brett Young as he also defeated Arik Cannon in a singles match. Also on this show, “The LONRs” were once again successful over Northstar Express, Zac and Tyler tangled again, and Strife and Victory got their first taste of Simply the Best.

August was very intense, Tyler Pride finally defeated Zac James in a must see street fight to open the show. Stephen Saint defeated Chris Havius by cheating in a First Blood match. Afterwards, Chris challenged Stephen to a FANS BRING THE WEAPONS match at the next show. Brett Young fell short of his chance at gold when Abu Colossus once again dominated him. This led us to September, Malicious Mayhem and one of the most insane nights in PWP history. Chris Havius and Stephen Saint put it all on the line in a match that included tables, ladders, chairs, light tubes, thumbtacks, bibles and more. Chris Havius came out on top and both earned the fans respect that night.

This was the easiest to chose, of all the shots taken in 2008 this Weapons Match between Chris Havis and Stephen Saint will forever be in my conversation of “what  are some of your best shots”. September 21, 2008 Malicious Mayhem… would be the #1 Choice of my Best PWP Shots of 2008.- Gary Giaffoglione/GG HotShots.com PWP Photographer

October 25 was a special night for PWP. The Northstar Express had their last chance at the PWP title, if they lost, they would never get another shot at the LONRs. They did pull through to become PWP Tag Team Champions. Also, the showed was named Night of the Rebel, because Jeremy Wyatt, who hadn’t lost a singles match in probably a thousand years in PWP, defeated Abu Colossus to become the current reigning PWP champion. Since then he has defeated both Abu Colossus and Brett Young to retain. The Northstar Express’ reign was short lived, as they were defeated in a three way dance by Simply the Best, also including Jaysin Strife and Vic Victory. Afterwards The duo challenged Simply the Best to a Texas Tornado Tag Title match in December, with the added stip that whoever was pinned in the match would leave PWP forever.

December came and new Tag Champs AGAIN, as Strife and Victory pinned Hype Gotti not only to win the titles, but to send him packing from PWP. Hype Gotti asked for one more match, and that is January 17th VS. Jeremy Wyatt for the Title. Regardless of winning or losing, he is gone from PWP. But he said he is going to retire as champion and go out with a bang.

What do we have to look forward to in PWP in 2009? You can bet that everyone has their sights set on “the Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt and his coveted Title. Look forward to your favorite regulars as well as new talent looking for chances at gold. Strife and Victory are the Tag Champs, but for how long? The LONRs won’t sit idly by and watch them take all the glory. Don’t forget about the Northstar Express either. It is a very exciting time for Pro Wrestling Phoenix, please check us out at www. prowrestlingphoenix. com for all the updates and add us as friends at www.myspace.com.prowrestlingphoenix.
