Time to vote for the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 8, 2014

It’s time…….. To vote for the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year today For the past three years Missouri Wrestling Revival.com has celebrated the month of February by having the fans around the world vote for who they think is the sexiest wrestler of the year. The contest is set up where we alternate the men one year, then the following year we have the women.

The first year was in 2011 as MWR fan relation’s Dubray Tallman let the ladies choose first on who they wanted to be the sexiest wrestler of the year. Chicago’s Bailey Mannix took home a whopping 43.97 percent on the way to being named the first ever MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year.

In 2012 it was time for us to find out just who the sexiest female was. The contest went back and forth as fans came to the site in full force to vote for their favorite. In a contest that came down to the last moments of the deadline, MsChif would take home the honor of being named the first ever MWR Female of the Year.

The next year it was to find out what guy would become the MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year. When the smoke cleared, it would be the exciting former 2011 PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins who would add the trophy to his collection of awards, belts and broken hearts.

The time has come for you to vote for who you think deserving for the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year.

The poll will be set up from February 8th to the 13. We will announce the winner of the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year on the day of love, Valentines Day!

Brandon Espinosa – Missouri Wrestling Revival 2011 Wrestler of the Year.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 1, 2012


During the MWR years, there have been no doubts on the skills of Brandon Espinosa.

Yet, in 2011, Brandon Espinosa experienced a breakout year. He sought out better training at OVW in Louisville and is now featured regularly on OVW TV with other future WWE stars. He arguably wrestled more matches for more companies than anybody in the area- at least 100 per year. Espinosa was a key player not only in his hometown of St. Louis but around the country

In what may have been his biggest win to date , Espinosa won the Pro Wrestling Epic 8 tournament by defeating Ace Hawkins in round one, Evan Money in round two, then in an exciting final matchup shocked the Midwest when he defeated one of the very best in ROH Superstar Jimmy Jacobs.

Throughout the year he wrestled for All American Pro Wrestling, High Voltage Wrestling, Independent Hardcore Wrestling, IWA Unlimited, IWA Productions, NWA Supreme, Pro Wrestling Epic, Metro East Championship Wrestling, & MMWA-SICW in the MWR covering area for 2011, has also wrestled for New Midwest Wrestling & NWA Dynamo in the past. In 2011, held the MMWA Jr. Heavyweight Championship, MMWA Wild World of Wrestling TV Championship (current holder), Pro Wrestling Epic Heavyweight Championship (current holder), and IWAU Club Championship but also held the Pro Wrestling Prestige US & Heavyweight Championship and TIWF Cruiserweight Championship in Tennessee, plus at one point held 4 Championships at once.

He competed in the following tournaments in 2011 – NWA Midwest X-Division Championship, AIWF Krazy 8 in North Carolina, IHW St. Louis Invitational, and OVW #1 Contender Gauntlet, reached the Finals in the SICW Classic Championship and TIWF Cruiserweight Championship Gauntlet, and won the PWE Epic 8 and the first ever St. Louis Cable TV trophy by defeating David Osborne, Phil E. Blunt and Gary Jackson.

He would contend for the WLW title held by “The Prince” Jason Jones in his very first match with the company coming up just short when Jone’s manager threw salt in the eyes of Espinosa.

Espinosa had victories over nationally known talents such as Jimmy Jacobs, El Generico, Jay Lethal, and Mike Sydal.

In 2011, Espinosa wrestled in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, as well as in the past in Arkansas, and Kansas.

Espinosa also made an appearance on All Worked Up (Season 3 Episode 12) when taped at a ROH event in Ohio. Also is the trainer of MWR talent  and the 2011 PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins, as well as many others.

We are proud to announce that Brandon Espinosa as the 2011 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

Bailey Mannix presented with the MWR 2011 Sexiest wrestler trophy .

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 21, 2011

Recently Missouri Wrestling Revival made our way to Wood River Illinois for MECW wrestling to present MECW Champion Bailey Mannix with the 2011 MWR Sexiest Wrestler trophy.

The promotion was the brainchild of MWR’S Dubray Tallman, who asked the fans to vote on who they felt was the sexiest wrestler in the Midwest. Fans around the Midwest voted in February with the electrifying Bailey Mannix receiving the honor of being named the 2011 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year.

Dubray unfortunately could not be there to deliver the prized trophy herself so MWR owner and editor was invited to the ring by MECW announcer MR K prior to the opening match. Kelley let the fans know about the site, the award and then invited the champ to the ring to receive his trophy.

Mannix thanked MWR and most importantly the fans who had voted for him, but before he could be finished Sarin Sinn came from the back demanding to be heard. Sinn quickly let Brian Kelley know that he was not happy at all about not being included for the voting. Brian apologized and stated that it was not meant to be a sign of disrespect.

Sinn continued to yell and berate Brian while poking him in the chest. Trying to avoid confrontation , Brian continued to let Sinn know it wasn’t personal. When out of the blue Sinn pushed Brian and in a blink of an eye the MWR editor shocked Sinn and the fans by pushing Sinn with so much force that he landed on his butt.

The Fuzzy Hat club and the fans went nuts. Thankfully Bailey Mannix stepped in at that time to save Brian and the MECW action was on.

A great night of wrestling with some of the top stars in the area including Bailey Mannix, Barry Ryte, Eric Allen along with many great young talent all around the Midwest will return this weekend to Wood River Illinois at the Knights of Columbus.

Each fan with a paid admission will receive a FREE Monster Energy drink to jump start the night. (While Supplies last)

MWR Sexiest Wrestler of 2011 is…..Bailey Mannix.

Bailey Mannix has often been in the talks as one of the top wrestlers in the game today, but on this Valentines Day he has won the title as the Sexiest wrestler of 2011.

You can catch Mannix at Windy City Pro Wrestling in Chicago and he is the current MECW Champion who had a phenomenal match with Tony Kozina at IHW in 2010.

Mannix can defeat his opponents with a plethora of moves but all it would take for him to be name the first ever Sexist Wrestler in the Midwest was to have the top votes from his many fans around the country.

We would like to congratulate Bailey Mannix and thank everyone for their vote.

Who is the MWR’S Sexiest wrestler in the Midwest?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 3, 2011


Hello everyone it is Dubray again and in this special feature we are going to get down to the very bottom of what all girls want to know at a wrestling show. No it is not who is the champ or what happened at the last show. Yes it could be where our girlfriends got that cute dress and how did she get it so cheap.

Sorry I am getting sidetracked, what we really want to know is, who is the sexiest guy in the Midwest. I have been to over a 150 plus shows all around the Midwest the past few years and I can proudly say that I have seen most of the hard bodies in the area. While Brian is trying to get that exclusive interviews with thel ikes of the Mississippi Madman or the picture of the newly crowned Champion, my eye is on the prize.

So in honor of Valentine’s Day I have set up a poll for all the ladies in the Midwest to vote for who is exactly is the sexiest wrestler in the Midwest. The final vote will be taken on Feb 13 at 11:59

2010 Missouri Wrestling Revival Award winners

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 27, 2011

What a great year 2010 was for pro wrestling in the Midwest. Shows throughout the Midwest showed a steady growth in an economy that is struggling.

The biggest companies in the World, WWE and TNA both had pay per views in the Midwest. Fans were able to meet the stars at TNA’S fan fest. The ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame honored Dory Funk JR, Bobby the Brain Heenan and Baron von Raschke with their inductions to the hall of fame during the celebration.

Wrestling returned to Kansas City in a big way when Metro Pro Wrestling debut at the historic Memorial Hall with special guest Tommy Dreamer and a TV deal on Metro Sports. Led by former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdock, the Metro roster has to step up their game if they are to be the best if they are to stand out of the 3 time WWE Tag Team Champions shadow.

We were happy to add New Midwest Wrestling to our coverage area.At MWR we have seen some of the NMW talents in past in Dan the Man and Ryan Phoenix but we quickly saw that Bobby Houston, Eric Logan and NMW Champion Jonathan Magnus are just a few that are worthy of seeing in action as well.

Once again we were able to enjoy another great PWE show at the Lincoln Balloon Festival. PWE later in the year saw Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck go up against the fun lovin former WWE Star U-Gene and the Mississippi Madman.

We were able to see PWP get out of the grasp of the Murder Militia in a classic War Games match while on the other side of the state 3XWrestling continued their standard of providing the fans with great wrestling and an up and close look at their great website including the monthly Outside the Ring program.

In ST Louis MMWA-SICW was the 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year, but they did not rest on their laurels. They continued to train young wrestlers while bringing in some of the very best in Mark Sterling and Mike Sydal, fans where also  thrilled to see old favorites return like Danny Boy and Ron Powers.

AAPW had one of the very best feuds in the Midwest with Shane Rich turning his back on his good friend Edmund “Livewire” McGuire.

NWA Dynamo has brought back some of the GCW flavor and packed the house in a great show in the summer with Pete Madden and Mike Sharona going to war with Nikki Strychnine and Makaze in the main event.

HVW had a slow year but was proud to boast that HVW Original Santana G had made her way to Florida with a great opportunity to valet on Spike TV for TNA with Orlando Jordan.

World League Wrestling is primed to be at their very best with the young talent training at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy. Don’t be surprised to see the talents of Jason Jones, the Cancun Kid, Lucy Mendez, Jack Gamble, Brian Breaker and Ethan Wright hold titles throughout the Midwest and beyond in the near future.

IHW proved that they were one of the best with entertaining shows that grew more and more fans each time. Brandon Aarons has turned into the one of the biggest fan favorites in all of the Midwest. Eric Allen and Sean Vincent would test the skills of the rising young star.

MECW mixed hometown flavor with a dose of Windy City Wrestling, including former WWE Star Mike Anthony and the one and only Bailey Mannix along with teen heart throb Evan Money.

IWA Unlimited provided the fans of Olney Illinois with free wrestling each Wednesday. High flying and hard hitting action gave the wrestlers a chance to improve their skills in a great environment.

IWA Productions packed the house with special guest The Honky Tonk Man but it was the local fans that stole the show when Christian Rose and Danny Cannon tore the roof off the place.

NWA Supreme shows may not have that many shows but the ones they did have where filled with some of the best stars locally and nationally.

MWR wrestlers have been active working to get to the top. Mike Sydal was announced as the 2009 PWI Rookie of the year while Midwest stars Mark Sterling, Ace Hawkins, Brandon Espinosa all made appearances with Ring of Honor.

The fans and friends of Barry Ryte showed their support for their guy after he was diagnosed with cancer causing him to back out of the 2010 ECWA Super 8 tournament. Barry has shown in the ring that he has the heart of a champion, and that fighting spirit has helped him It has been announced that he has been cleared to wrestle in 2011. If we had an inspirational wrestler of the Year he would have won hands down.

Fans were blessed to have the Champion of the World Tyler Black make their way to their hometown as Tyler Black met Jeremy Wyatt at 3Xwrestling in Des Moines Iowa, while in Illinois Black went one on one with Brandon Aarons.

This fall word got out that the Future Donovan Ruddick had made his way to Florida with a developmental contract for WWE. He joined the before mentioned Black who has since lost his title to Roderick Strong but we all know the best is yet to come for Tyler Black.

I hope that you have enjoyed the coverage of all of your favorite promotions. It is with the hard work of Dubray Tallman, Mike Van Hoogstraat, Bill Smith, Gary Giaffoglione, Matt Murphy, Greg Anthony , Dartallion Allen, Mark Campos, Josh Ray and Rob Schamberger that makes the site what it is today.

We would like to thank the promoters and wrestlers that support the site for the past three years.

Last but not least thank you so much to the fans of pro wrestling in the Midwest. Take the time to see a wrestler before they become the next Superstar.

On January first we were proud to announce that Mike Chapman was named as the 2010 MWR Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. For more info on Mike Chapman click here.

Now with further ado I give you the 2010 MWR yearly awards.

2010 Wrestler of the Year

Mike Sydal-

The wrestler of the year was a close vote this year as the surge of Mark Sterling coming within votes to be named for the second year in a row for MWR Wrestler of the Year. Meanwhile Donovan Ruddick had a great push thanks to great performances in 2010 against Dave Vaughn, Mephisto, and the Mississippi Madman. Hard work would pay off for Ruddick as the opportunity that many felt was long overdue, came to pass when he was signed to the WWE developmental contract late this fall. Jeremy Wyatt and Trevor Murdock both garnered several votes thanks to what many voters voiced their respect for each of these men. Last but not least just on the outside of the voting range was Brandon Aarrons who and his former tag team partner Brandon Espinosa .

Mike Sydal toured the country in 2010 wrestling in matches each and every week. Promoters loved him, fans cheered him and the country noticed. His hard work and dedication combined with a true desire to improve earned made him the second wrestler that took part in the WLW/Noah camp that won the PWI Rookie of the Year.

Sydal was just getting started, during Wrestlemania weekend he was in California wrestling with Ring of Honor. He would continue wrestling with Ring of Honor training at their training center before making appearances on Direct TV’S HDNET against Tyler Black, Christopher Daniels and more.

In the fall Sydal returned to much fan fare. At Metro Pro Wrestling, Rock and Roll Mike Sydal was once again on TV with Metro Pro Wrestling against the former WWE Tag Team Champion Trevor Murdock.

At 3XW he was involved in one of the most emotional matches of the year when he was force to face “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson. Thompson defeated his High Flyers’ partner Mike Sydal following a Dublin Driver in a very emotional and hard fought Loser Leaves 3XWrestling match set up by 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman in May. Fans rejoiced when Thompson overcame the odds to defeat Brian Ash in November to allow Sydal to once again return.

Throughout the year of 2010 Sydal popped up just about everywhere good wrestling could be found.

Sydal has earned the respect of his peers and promoters and it showed in the 2010 in the final vote. Out of 14 awards committee voters the lowest Sydal got were 16.

We would like to congratulate Mike Sydal as the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

Attitude Inc. (Guy Smith, Spencer Powers, and Michael Shard)

New Midwest Tag Team Champions : Attitude Inc – Spencer Powers, Michael Shard and Guy Smith

Attitude Inc is a flashy tag team that has electrified the ring at New Midwest Wrestling for the past year. All three men are former NMW Heavyweight Champions who have come together and found success. Like the Freebirds, Attitude Inc have mixed partners to their advantages. Their success and talent has won over the awards committee.

At the start of the year they dismantled the faction the Sin Club of Steve Bishop, Dave Parker and Dareian Frost in impressive fashion.

In July the they outlasted the tag teams of Logantyre (Eric Logan and Justin McEntyre) , The New Immolare (Tom Arson and Ryan Phoenix) and the Full Metal Jackals( Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) in an exciting four way match to win the NMW Tag Team titles.

In consecutive months of October and November they defeated the up and coming tag team the Full Metal Jackals (Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) to retain the NMW Tag Team Titles.

Though Attitude Inc has their hands full with the tag team of the Uninvited (Rip Mystic and Tom Arson) heading into 2011, the team can hold their head up high that MWR has named them the 2010 MWR Tag Team of the Year.

3XW’s fifth year proved to be the best yet, featuring a mix of incredible wrestling, packed crowds, strong business relationships within the community, and a continuing commitment to charitable efforts.
Despite the common perception that interest in wrestling is on the decline, 3XW enjoyed consistently growing crowds throughout the year, routinely packing the Des Moines Social Club each month for events thanks to a loyal – and growing – following and strong television, radio, print and word-of-mouth advertising, not to mention the most talented roster of wrestlers in the entire Midwest.

This past July, 3XW also had the honor of being the last wrestling promotion to hold matches in historic Veterans Memorial Auditorium, a building with 55 years of wrestling history. The athletes of 3XW competed in the same building that NWA affiliates, particularly Central States, held matches years ago, not to mention some major WWE/WWF/WCW moments.

3XW’s webshow, Outside the Ring, enjoyed an increasing number of views, as did 3XWrestling.com, which was visited by thousands of fans each month.

First Runner up- Independent Hardcore Wrestler
Second Runner up- MMWA-SICW
Third Runner up- Metro Pro Wrestling

2010 MWR Match of the Year

Jeremy Wyatt vs. Tyler Black – 3XW – April 2, 2010

Spring Showdown at 3Xwrestling was a monumental night of pro wrestling featuring one of the top wrestlers in the Midwest proving to the world that he could hang with the Champion of the World.

The two wrestled to a 30-minute time limit draw in an incredible wrestling match that earned a standing ovation from the crowd after the final bell. The last minute of the match saw referee Jeromy Robb inadvertently get crushed in the corner by both men and fall to the canvas. Black quickly nailed Wyatt with a tremendous reverse brainbuster and covered him for the pin, only there was no ref to count the pin. As Black was checking on the ref in the corner, Wyatt slowly rose to his feet and grabbed Black from behind, slamming him hard with his patented Kansas Tumbleweed (Lightning Spiral) and covering him for the pin with 20 seconds remaining, only for the ref to still be out. Wyatt screamed and pleaded for the ref to get up to no avail and he even counted the pin himself. The time then ran out before a winner could be determined but the fans gave a standing ovation.

First Runner up- MECW November 20, 2010 – Bailey Mannix vs. Eric Allen – 30 Minute Ironman Match

Second Runner up- The Mississippi Madman vs. The Future Donovan Ruddick with MR Late Nite at Pro Wrestling Epic August 28th, 2010 Lincoln, Illinois

Dubi meets the MECW fans 12-4-2010

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 24, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Happy Holidays everyone, earlier this month we made our way to our good friends at MECW for their final show of the year. Santa was on his way and we were to give away the first of only two MWR Holiday t-shirts, a free gift bag and MECW was giving away a Christmas ham.

This was also their annual toys for tots, that allowed a fan to bring a five dollar toy they got free admission for a kid into the show. Brian was excited to see that Brandon Aarons was going to be in action and asked for him to throw out our shirt prior to his match with Shawn Santel.

The first boy I met was little Jackson that was at his very first MECW show. Jackson was excited about the opportunity to be a part of this article, and even more excited about meeting a wrestler. He asked for me to choose a wrestler for him so I decided to not only choose one but two on this night. Jackson was able to meet the high flying Evan Money and his new tag team partner Buddy Roberts Jr. For the fans out their wandering, yes that is the true son of Buddy Roberts. To be honest I don’t know who that is but Brian states that he was a part of an historic group called the Fabulous Freebirds


Next up was Tiger Roth who was a fan of the MECW Champion Bailey Mannix who grabbed the Lovely Leon as he is walking by. You can see the look on Mannix’s face as the tension between the two have been at a boiling point. Nevertheless the Champ is a true professional and took the picture with the fan.

Ron Hobbs was also happy to meet the top wrestler in MECW, Bailey Mannix while his friend Shannon Courto was very impressed with the looks, I mean wrestling skills of young Brandon Aarons.


As we saw in the past Shawn Santel brings the fans.On this night it was no different as Harry Baumeister, Steela Hernadez, Kaleb Harshbarger, Noah Young, Marissa Scoggins, Cheyann Motley, and Sheryl Baumeister was thrilled to pose with the fans at ringside.

Brandon Aarons wore the MWR shirt and threw it you Noah Dagley who posed with big time MECW fans and MWR friends Chad and Kim Dagley and Ricky Lynn.

Ricky Lynn & Noah Dagley also had the chance to take a photo with The Brawlers and their special guest Santa Clause.
Last but not least I will leave you with a photo from my friends at MECW that called themselves the Fuzzy Hat Club. The Club gathers together for friendships, wrestling and supporting others within the community. The Fuzzy Hat Club loves their beer and having a good time, while often acting silly. Here is a photo of just three of these great people in the Fuzzy Hat Club


This most likely will be the last Dubi Meets the Fans before Christmas, I hope everyone has a happy and safe Christmas.

Join us after then to see Dubi Meets the MMWA-SICW coming to you from East Carondelet Illinois .

Till next time, Merry Christmas

Love Dubz

Dubi meets the IHW Fans November 2010 with a special appearance at MECW

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 10, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

We were excited to be a pat of Independent Hardcore Wrestling’s final show of 2010 in Jerseyville Illinois on November 21st.

IHW has had some great matches throughout the year. Add great matches with some buildings full of fans; IHW has to be considered among the finalist for the MWR Promotion of the Year in 2011.

Our good friends Drew and Gary was there to hang out with me during the matches making the night that much more fun.

The MWR wrestler of the night was Neil Diamond Cutter. It had been forever since we saw the youngest Cutter. Neil had his hands full on this night when he was set to face off with the powerful Chris L.O.G.A.N and a very biased referee Ace Roberts. Prior to his match though he wore the MWR shirt to the ring and threw it to young Alex.

Alex was in attendance with his brother Dalton and was able to get his picture taken with a very sore Neil Diamond Cutter.

Andrew Feruson from Grafton Illinois was impressed with Graves who had demolished young Johnny Griffen in his very first match. Graves who can be very intimating at times was in good spirits when we asked for a picture with his new fan.

Nathan Franke from Jerseyville Illinois was glad to see wrestling come to his hometown. Nathan was quick to let me know that he wanted his picture with Brandon Aarons.

Aarons has not only won over the hearts of the women in the Midwest but the respect of the men as well.

I sometimes get so busy that I forget to have my picture taken with a wrestling star as well. On this night one guy that was easy to remember was called The Manimal. During his match with Chaz Wesson the Manimal was whipped and chopped in and out of the ring. I had to give him respect though because he did not back out from the punishing blows that was heard throughout the building. I was happy to have my picture taken with the Wildman.

On this night that would not be the only show we would make. As soon as the last bell was rung at IHW, Brian was determined to make it to MECW 30 minutes down the road in Woodriver.

We were able to make it to the main event featuring MECW Champion Eric Allen taking on Bailey Mannix in a 30 Minute Iron Man match. Brian said the clock had 27 minutes 32 seconds on the clock when he took his first shot of this awesome match. In the final minute Mannix would pin Allen and once again becoming the MECW Champion.

After the match MECW fans Andrew Davis and Blake Young asked to get their picture taken with the new Champion. To make it that much sweeter Brian was able to get MECW Stars Mathew McDarby and Evan Money to in the picture as well.

In the next edition of Dubi meets the fans we were at MECW’s final show of the year on December 4th.

You can catch me at MMWA-SICW this Saturday to be a part of Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans. Please join me for a great night of wrestling.
