The Jeff Thompson Memorial Brings Family and Friends Together

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 31, 2015

Missouri Wrestling Revival has supported pro wrestling for the past eight years and during that time we have traveled through the beautiful state of Iowa to meet the wonderful fans. While covering some of the biggest matches of this era on the independent scene that would include the likes of Tyler Black (Seth Rollins) Davey Richards, Adam Pearce and not one, but two Iron Man matches between Jeremy Wyatt and Mark Sterling.

On this night, I would be traveling to Nevada, Iowa , a town just outside of Des Moines the home base for 3XWrestling as an invite from my longtime friend 3XW fan Brian Vanderwal . Several months prior to the event Brian had Facebooked myself to ask if I could free my schedule to attend a memorial show that he was working with 3XW to honor the memory of his longtime friend Jeff Thompson. Due to the fact that it was Mothers Day and I had hoped to take my mother to Kansas City for the spring race of NASCAR event at Kansas Speedway for the Spongebob Squarepants 400, yet we would not be able to do so as she works at a nursing home for the past 35 years and was unable to get off, so I contacted my friend Brian to let him know the week prior that I would be there, and look forward to supporting his effort to make the Jeff Thompson Memorial Show a success.

To be honest, I can’t say that I had known Jeff, but it was obvious that he had touched many of those in the wrestling community by the kind words that many of the wrestlers had to say about him. I had written a press release on the pain that a mother/fathers have when they lose a child. Jeff a longtime wrestling fan ,made his way to cheer on the Nevada, Iowa girls basketball team on March 7th to win their first ever state basketball tournament . On the way out of the building Jeff collapsed and passed away due to a brain aneurysm on the way out of the arena that night. I did not know Jeff’s mother, Deb and had hoped that it was appropriate for the occasion, but Brian had told me that she had loved it and when we met prior to the event she had given me a hug to start off a memorable night in Iowa.

While meeting with his Dad, Ken, he and I exchanged stories of him traveling through Missouri, only to have a flat tire, and receiving help from a Missourian that had not asked for payment. We spoke about NASCAR and most importantly we talked about Jeff. Ken was impressed in the fact how Jeff had touched so many in the wrestling and Heavy Metal music community. While we spoke friends, family and fans of pro wrestling started to fill up, Ken told me the story that summed up how powerful a mother can be to their child as he explained how Jeff’s first spoken word were “mom” and on that tragic day that Jeff would pass away, his mother Deb was there and Jeff’s last words were “mom”.

Headlining the evenings events were a tag team tournament to crown the first ever 3XW Jeff Thompson Memorial tournament featuring four exciting tag teams including the former MWR Tag Team of the Year the American Bulldogs ( Mark McDowell and Jon West) , the exciting tag team AC/DC of Arik Cannon and Darin Corbin as well as the former fan favorite tag team of Heroes for Hire (Jimmy Rockwell and Zach Thompson) in opposite corners as Rockwell teamed up with the 3XWrestling Champion Jeremy Wyatt while Thompson aligned himself with Wyatts arch rival Mark Sterling.

Also on the card were several 3XWrestling favorites, as well as students from the 3XWrestling school and The Black & The Brave Wrestling Academy to thrill the fans with a night of exciting wrestling. Prior to bell time, Brian Vanderwal and his girlfriend were working the concession stand

while 3XW’s Corrie McDowell at the merchandise table offering raffle tickets to the fans for a chance to win wrestling merchandise as the fans had an opportunity to meet the tag team AC/DC, SM King and Nevada’s very own Don Desher.

SM King is the in the face of 3XWrestling announcer Austin Buckner.

Prior to the event 3XW’s Todd Countryman thanked the crowd for attending the show in Jeff Thompson’s memory expressing to them how blessed that 3XW had felt having the support of Jeff throughout the years.

Sentai and Pat Powers double teams “The Chainsaw King” SM King

The action started out fast and furious as Sentai and Pat Powers hoped to use speed to slowdown the powerful SM King.

In the end, Sentai took home the win in front of a rockin’ crowd.

Zach Thompson and Mark Sterling cuts the ring off as Referee Jeremy Robb tries to maintain order.

In the first round Mark Sterling and Zach Thompson took advantage of the miscommunication of the American Bulldogs to move on past the first round of the Jeff Thompson Memorial tournament.

 photo 0a_zpsuitz88j2.jpg

Zach Thompson soars from above onto Jonathan West.

 photo 0b_zpsxyoivchr.jpg

A major double team move that helped the American Bulldogs win the 2012 MWR Tag Team of the Year. On this night it would not be enough to take down the Worlds Fittest Wrestler, Mark Sterling.

 photo 0c_zpsak5iqfqc.jpg

Just as Maddog McDowell was able to get the edge, down from below Thompson gives Sterling a helping hand.

Once again the Bulldogs seemed to have animosity between each other after the loss, leaving many wondering if this was the last of the Bulldogs for good.

 photo 0d_zpstt6e4yay.jpg

JD Riggs punishes Rich Brooks in the corner, with advice from his Skylar Pierce manager at ringside.

Up next, Skylar Pierce and power of JD Riggs would be too much for the young Rich Brooks to overcome in match number two as the big man keeps rolling in 3XW.

 photo 0e_zpsi7nqa7ng.jpg

Brooks looks to have a ton of potential, but he will have to avoid taking punishment like this if he hopes to make an impact.

The second match in the Jeff Thompson Memorial tournament went back and forth as Wyatt and Rockwell struggled to keep up with the tag team excellence of AC/DC. Wyatt and Rockwell captured a hard fought victory to move on into the finals of the tournament to be featured in the main event later that evening.

Jimmy Rockwell and Darin Corbin fights for an edge on the top rope.

 photo 0000_zpssfpkvyqx.jpg

Sometimes you find yourself at the wrong place at the wrong time. Here Wyatt levels Corbin with a brutal kick.

 photo 0f_zpspcshsarv.jpg

Todd Countryman offers young Jackson a special autograph poster of the nights event.

During the intermission, we got to see a softer side of one of the baddest men in the Midwest, “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt when they offered Ken and Deb’s grandson Jackson an autograph poster of the nights event in the middle of the ring.

 photo 0g_zpsnovpxm4r.jpg

Jackson hooks the leg on Todd Countryman, on the way to victory as Wyatt makes the count and Rockwell cheers him on.

As they say kids say and do the darndest things, and on this night was no different. As Rockwell and Wyatt was in the ring Todd Countryman asked young Jackson if he was would like to challenge one of the tag team winners to a contest, the boy declined, but much to Countrymans’ dismay Jackson wanted a match with Todd.

 photo 0h_zps8hqltlpv.jpg

In years to come this mask wrestler could become the next 3XW Champion.

In one of the shortest matches at 3XW, he delivered one move on the way to getting the 1-2-3 as Wyatt took the role of referee and Rockwell celebrated with the crowd.
 photo 0i_zpshfeqtfr5.jpg

WWE’S Bo Dallas would be proud of Jackson because once he got out of the ring he made a victory lap clapping fans hands along the way.

Devin Carter has been one of the best wrestlers at 3XW for some time and Nevada’s own Don Desher hoped to take the cheers of the hometown crowd on the way to victory.

 photo ok_zpsdsw0tmhl.jpg

Devin Carter takes a bite out of Nevada, Iowa Don Desher

 photo 0n_zpsbs73u6ht.jpg

Desher was able to hook on the Scorpion Deathlock for the win.

 photo 0l_zpsiuv4pcmh.jpg

Carter, a wily and dangerous challenger stopped Desher momentum at every turn only to have Desher capture the biggest victory of his young career forcing Carter to tap out to the sharpshooter as the crowd exploded.

 photo 0o_zpshlpwgudr.jpg

Early on Adrian Alexander was able to use his speed to have Rory Fox reeling.

Straight out of the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy,  Adrian Alexander found himself across the ring against former 3XWrestling Champion Rory Fox.

 photo 0p_zpsdzks6kj7.jpg

The former student of wrestling great Les Thatcher can defeat you on the ground or in the air.

 photo 0q_zpstc8cfbxq.jpg

Speed kills, and her Alexander caught Rory Fox in midair off the top rope.

 photo 00r_zpsavwxz4ob.jpg

If Rory Fox’s wrestling skills were not enough, he is a master of hiding foreign objects. Here he is choking Alexander out with a band while the ref was out of position.

I have to believe that Fox is one of the most underrated wrestlers in the Midwest, and the fact that Alexander not only stood his ground, but was able to show signs of getting a win early in his first months of wrestling before falling to losing to Fox. proves to me that we should see a lot of the young star to come.

 photo 0y_zpsqjoeggla.jpg

Brady A Dezire goes for a ride.

 photo 0u_zps51lswh6c.jpg

Superkick from Dezire caught the young rookie by surprise.

 photo 0x_zpstlzdm1cv.jpg

The always charismatic Brady A Dezire was dressed for the occasion as he had his cow style pants, but it would be the cowboy “The Lone Star” Jesse Malone who would be right at home in the country style pavilion capturing a huge win.

 photo 0z_zpsn96bukiu.jpg

In a battle between partners it would be McDowell getting the bragging rights on this evening.

A classic battle royal was held next as the 3XW stars battled it out, until it was Bulldog partners Mark McDowell and Jon West. On this night Maddog McDowell would have the crowd rockin’ as he was able to turn the tide of West and dump him onto the floor to become the last man standing.

The finals of the tournament was set as four men who have been to battle with and against each other throughout the years battle for the bragging rights of being named the first ever Jeff Thompson Memorial Tag Team Champions.

 photo 001_zpsqixfcbyk.jpg

Classic double team as Sterling hold Rockwell down while Thompson brings the pain.

 photo 002_zpsi1hlglua.jpg

Mayhem on the outside.

 photo 003_zps5wwlnrin.jpg

Jimmy Rockwell gets an assist from the young fans.

 photo 004_zps297pallo.jpg

Jeremy Wyatt gives Zach Thompson the worse titty twister ever.

 photo 005_zpsh50elu1c.jpg

Sterling has no where to run as Wyatt is on top of him.

Sterling and Thompson were vicious and unforgiving in their attack of Rockwell and Wyatt. Sterling delivered the power moves as Thompson used his speed to their teams’ advantage early on. It would be back and forth as both teams looked to gain an advantage, but it would be a leg drop from Wyatt sealing the victory for their team.

 photo 007_zps2oywjlp8.jpg

Moments later Todd Countryman invited Brian Vanderwal in the ring to present the Jeff Thompson Memorial trophy to the team of Jeremy Wyatt and Zach Thompson. It was then decided between Vanderwal, Wyatt and Rockwell that Jeff Thompsons mother and father should come into the squared circle to be given the trophy in Jeff Thompson’s honor.

 photo 006_zpsghyutgcl.jpg

As Jeff’s mom and dad, Deb and Ken were handed the trophy by the winners of the tournament, Vanderwal and several of the young family members came into the ring to celebrate, I realized that I had experienced a truly magical moment at 3XW.

8. 10-Man Elimination Tag Team match – The Gentlemen’s Club (Brian Ash, Gage Octane, Devin Carter, Casanova and Todd Countryman) beat Mark Sterling, “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson, Maddog McDowell, Krotch and Ring of Honor World champion Tyler Black. It came down to Ash and Thompson and Ash pinned Thompson despite a valiant effort on the part of Thompson. Black was eliminated when the referee saw him hit Ash with a title belt that Ash tried to hit him with first and Sterling was DQ’d for refusing to release a Sharpshooter on Octane after Octane had already tapped out. Thompson then pinned Octane before taking the final fall to Ash.

After the bout, the Gentlemen’s Club continued to assault Thompson, who was saved by all his partners to the cheers of the crowd.

Next up – 3XW’s top event of the year, the 5 Year Anniversary Event! Details can be found here: http://www.3xwrestling.com/events2.htm

3XWrestling Presents Action-Packed Halloween Horror III Event

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 30, 2009

3XWrestling Presents Action-Packed Halloween Horror III Event
Iowa’s Top Wrestling Company Holds Premier Fall Showcase

DES MOINES, Iowa – After performing in front of a record crowd in September, Des Moines-based 3XWrestling (3XW) once again invades the Des Moines Social Club to hold Halloween Horror III. The stacked Oct. 16 event features three title matches and a battle royal, among many others.

In a first for 3XW, the main event of Halloween Horror III sees 3XW Heavyweight champion “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, fresh off a victory over internationally-recognized wrestling star Al Snow, defend his championship against a challenger determined by a battle royal earlier in the evening. Never before has a 3XW Heavyweight champion had to defend his championship against the challenge of a same-night battle royal winner.

“I don’t care who I have to defend against in October – whether it’s Devin Carter, Jimmy Rockwell, Mark Sterling, Rory Fox, that punk Tyler Cook or even some fool from the crowd – I’ll beat down anyone who dares challenge me for my title!” said a confident Wyatt.

Heading into the Oct. 16 event, Wyatt, who is widely considered the best wrestler in the Midwest among wrestling fans, has defeated a who’s who of professional wrestling in 2009, including Al Snow and Ring of Honor stars Jerry Lynn, Tyler Black, Davey Richards and Sonjay Dutt. Wyatt has only lost a handful of times in 3XW in the past four years.

The 3XW Tag Team titles will also be defended as current champions The High Flyers (Mike Sydal and “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson) battle Sexy and Smooth (A.J. Smooth and “The Canadian Sex Icon”Ryan Slade) in a highly-anticipated tag team attraction.

In a rematch two months in the making, “The Viking Warrior” Kraig Keesaman, the 3XW Pure Wrestling champion, puts his 14-month undefeated streak on the line against the challenge of former three-time Pure Wrestling champion Tyler Cook in what should be a classic hard-hitting battle.

Local powerhouse fan favorite Maddog McDowell will battle Mark Sterling, a vicious technical wrestling master, in singles competition.

Among those also competing on Oct. 16 are 3XW Cruiserweight champion Casanova, “Delicious” Devin Carter, “The Right Price” Aaron Masterson, “The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong, “Torturous” Tony Sly, Brady A. Dezire, Rory Fox and more!

Doors open at 7 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Des Moines Social Club is located at 1408 Locust St. in Des Moines.

Founded in 2005, 3XWrestling, a Des Moines-based organization, has performed in front of thousands of fans across Iowa and been featured on Iowa Public Radio and in publications including Juice and Cityview. 3XW events are held monthly in Des Moines.

3XW and its performers are also heavily involved with charity work. 3XW recently joined forces with Blockbuster Video and heavy metal band-on-the-rise Dark Mirror to hold a fundraiser event for local firefighters.

Last February, one-legged wrestling star Zach Gowen competed in 3XW and helped raise over $10,000 to help the family of a young man whose leg was amputated due to his battle with cancer. All proceeds from that event we’re given to the family to offset medical costs, with every wrestler performing on a volunteer basis.

Come find out why 3XW is the best kept secret in Des Moines-area family-friendly entertainment!
