Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 28, 2016

The second Ryan Buckley Tournament once again featured several of the top talented wrestlers in the Midwest as they honored the fallen solider Ryan Buckley. Fans filled the Peterburg Fire Department to find out who would have the honor of being the tournament champion and see if the Proving Ground Pro Franchise Champion Jake Dirden could overcome the power of Justice Jones.

Tyson Dux would show to the fans why he is one of best technical wrestlers today when he would pick up victories against Johnny Wisdom, Craig Mitchell and Jeff Cobb on the way to making history.

Tag team titles were on the line as the Full Impact Pro Tag Team Champions and 3-time MWR Tag Team of the Year, Devin and Mason Cutter pulled out all the stops to defeat Zakk Sawyer and Mikey McFinnagin.

In a major battle of power Justice Jones unleashed his power onto Jake Dirden before losing via DQ, Though Dirden was able to retain the title, Jones sent a clear message that he was a true threat to Dirden’s championship reign.

Dirden vs Wyatt for Franchise Title at MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET

“Dirdey” Jake Dirden is the first 2 time PGP Franchise champion, his second title reign kicks off with a monstrous challenge. The massive Frank Wyatt on December 19th. Like storm fronts colliding, Dirden and Wyatt are a looming natural disaster waiting to descend on the Lawford Theater(225 W Main, Havana,IL) at MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET. Dirden spent almost a full year chasing former champ “Bad Wolf” Blake Belakis, now that he has the prize in his hands Jake is determined not to let it go any time soon. Easier said than done in the PGP, Frank Wyatt is huge, powerful, battle tested, well versed in the Proving Ground(“One Man Riot: Frank Wyatt in singles, Drunken Vikings as tag and Viking War Party in trios) and well used to winning titles (current Zero 1 heavyweight champ), trust me when I say this will be ONE HELL OF A FIGHT!!! Jake Dirden has never been better, gaining strength and experience on his climb up the indy mountain with his Aziatic Spike becoming one of the most feared finishers in the business. Frank Wyatt is flat out tough to stop, bringing all the destruction and mayhem that a “One Man Riot” would suggest and pummeling opponents into submission on a regular basis. This battle of gargantuan proportion takes center stage in the eye of the most furious storm of the winter, the double damn awesome spectacular MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET!!!
MIRACLE OF MAIN STREET is locked and loaded, 7 matches of pure indy gold…This card is seriously freakin’ amazing, a true holiday treat of adrenaline fueled deluxe wrestling action, let’s take a look.. PGP Tag Team champs, Team IOU(Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful) put the titles on the line against Alpha Class(Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez) in a full tilt championship spectacular…Justice Jones battles Big Gator when giants collide inside the ring….Craig Mitchell versus Johnny Wisdom in rising star indy gold action…Classic Tag Team warfare with The Academic Standard(Mason Conrad IV and G.P.A.) meeting The Curse(Fire Lord Draconis and Ovirload)…Krotch takes on Randy Ray (with the massive Bull Bronson in his corner) in a highly anticipated singles match up…Buckley Tournament qualifier has last years winner “Bad Wolf” Blake Edward Belakis taking on Mallaki Matthews for a coveted spot in the 2nd annual Ryan Buckley Memorial Tournament….AND NOW we add a Franchise Title match featuring champion “Dirdey” Jake Dirden versus the massive “One Man Riot” Frank Wyatt…Holy Cow, this is one sweet indy show to round out a great 2015 for Proving Ground Pro!!! There’s enough indy gems on this show to cover a rap stars wrist watch, MAKE PLANS RIGHT DAMN NOW!!!

This can’t miss night of independent professional wrestling happens December 19th (Saturday) at the historic Lawford Theater (225 W Main, Havana,IL) with the doors opening at 6:30pm and the MIRACLE starting at 7pm. Whether you’re buying as a gift or working it into that holiday budget, you won’t find more entertainment value for your dollar than MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET, only $12 adult and $7 kids gets you every bit of the action….Keep that cost to a bare minimum with the supercharged advance ticket value of $10 adult and $5 kids available in Havana (Grandpa’s Diner, Lawford Theater) or Petersburg (Huebner Tire, Styles & More) or message us here on Facebook and we’ll hook you up!!!

New Japan, Ring of Honor and Global Force Wrestling’s Takaaki Watanabe comes to HRW Sunday afternoon May 24th in Cahokia, IL Plus ACH Update

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 17, 2015

Takaaki Watanabe has wrestled several of the top young stars around the world in the ring for top promotions New Japan, Pro Wrestling Noah and Ring of Honor and now fans can get a rare opportunity to see him live in the Midwest this Sunday in Cahokia, Illinois. This past weekend he wrestled in Canada, for ROH, and has his eyes set on the High Risk Wrestling Championship with the announcement that he will now meet Blake Edward Belakis in a number one contenders match that will be happen that very night.

The last time fans saw Watanabe was for St. Louis Anarchy when he collided in an epic matchup against SLA Champion Gary Jay. Since then Watanabe has improved his skills wrestling the likes of ROH TV Champion Jay Lethal, Mark Briscoe, Michael Elgin, and Christopher Daniels. With his tour of America, Watanabe is hoping to add the HRW Gold to his resume.

From the promoter of High Risk Wrestling- Frank Thurman

I have been informed that ACH will not be able to be in attendance on May 24th due to his recent booking in Mexico.

We here at HRW would like to thank ACH for being our Champion and for giving our fans the kind of Wrestling they deserve from their Champion.

After much thought it has been decided that since ACH is in such high demand around the World and will probably only become even more in demand in the future, that it would be best for everyone involved for ACH to vacate the HRW High Risk Championship.

You will still get a HRW Championship match on May 24th.

Since Louis Lyndon has already earned a Title shot by winning his No. 1 contenders match in April, he will automatically be in the Main Event as advertised.

His opponent will be decided by the already advertised No. 1 Contenders Match.

The winner of Takaaki Watanabe VS Blake Edward Belakis will advance to the Main Event to get their Title shot that very day.

The Winner of The Main Event will become the NEW HRW High Risk Champion!

As a bonus, we have decided to add yet another match to this already loaded line up.

Two the the fastest rising stars in the St. Louis area will collide in what is sure to be the definition of High Risk Wrestling!

Justin D’air VS Keon Option
Be sure to not miss your chance to see a New Champion Crowned and be a part of History in the making!

High Risk Wrestling Presents “Hall of the Mountain King” on Sunday afternoon May 24th in Cahokia, IL. with a matinee start time of 3:00PM Doors and 4:00Pm Bell time.
