Brandon Gallagher vs Matt Cage vs Jeff Gant [PWCS]

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 12, 2014

“Money” Matt Cage, “The Alternative” Brandon Gallagher, and Jeff Gant compete in a “Free Agent Showcase” at PWCS “Stage Three.” They hoped to impress one of the championship-bound teams, but the Submission Squad had other ideas…

A Free Agent Showcase in the PWCS is a chance for unsigned wrestlers to impress one of the four teams in the Series. If a team captain likes what he sees in a Showcase match, he can sign the wrestler to his team.

Dynamo Pro Wrestling electrifies Fenton, Missouri

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Dynamo Pro Wrestling returned to the Stratford Inn in Fenton, Missouri for another great night of action…it would be an eventful evening in more ways than one.

The night started with “TNT” Keny G speaking to the fans about his upcoming benefit show for stroke victims. Keny recently suffered a stroke himself and wanted to bring the St. Louis wrestling community together for a good cause.

After that, MWR’s own Brian Kelley presented two of the year-end awards for 2013; Alexandre Rudolph received one of the “Future Star” awards and Lucy Mendez was crowned “Sexiest Female Wrestler” of the year.

The first match of the night saw a battle for tag team supremacy…each duo in the triple threat match had the winner of the night’s Tag Team Title match in their sights. The seemingly mismatched duo of Evan “Money” Morris and “The Littlest Viking” Jake Parnell worked surprisingly well together over the course of the bout. High Level Enterprise(Jack Gamble & Jon Webb) seemed to be on the verge of victory, but a miscommunication between the two led to The Elitism(Brandon Espinosa & Ace Hawkins) picking up the win.

Ricky Cruz(now accompanied by Lucy Mendez) got into a verbal altercation with Executive Director Mark Bland over his lack of title shots…Bland told him to work his way up the ladder if he wanted another championship opportunity. Ricky had a tough test in the form of the returning Brandon Aarons, but Lucy’s distraction led to Cruz scoring the victory.

Dan Walsh hoped to get back on track against “Showtime” Bradley Charles, but Brandon Gallagher stuck his nose into Walsh’s business once again. While “The Alternative”‘s attempt at interference backfired, “SBC” was still able to surprise Walsh with a TKO to beat the former Dynamo Champion. Walsh nearly got his hands on Gallagher, but his blue-haired nemesis got away…leading to Walsh challenging him to a match at Dynamo’s return to Glen Carbon.

Elvis Aliaga hoped to earn his way back into title contention against Mark Sterling; it seemed like Sterling’s Crossfit experience would give him the conditioning to outlast the current WLW Champion, but Aliaga was able to escape with a quick crucifix pinfall.

Powerhouses clashed as “The Urban Legend” Kevin X locked up with Alexandre Rudolph. “The American Viking” gave the veteran a good fight and Kevin X barely edged out a win with a small package.

Brian Kelley presented the 2013 MWR Wrestler Of The Year award to Dynamo Champion Jake DirdenJeremy Wyatt took the opportunity to attack Dirden from behind, hitting him with the plaque and laying him out with the Lightning Spiral. Dirden was able to return to the dressing room under his own power, but Wyatt had scored an early advantage in their rivalry.

After being robbed of the Tag Team Titles in February, The Bumrush Brothers(Shorty Biggs & Outtkast) were fired up to reclaim what was once theirs. The Black Hand Warriors(Michael Magnuson & David DeLorean) were confident under the guidance of manager Travis Cook. The momentum swung back and forth between two of the top teams in the Midwest…but the match broke down into a huge brawl at the end. In the confusion, Magnuson accidentally knocked down his manager Cook…the BRBs pounced on their advantage and hit a double-team faceplant on DeLorean. Shorty got the pinfall and the Bumrush Brothers were two-time Tag Champs!

The fireworks didn’t end there…as Shorty and Outtkast celebrated their win, they were jumped by Mauler McDarby and Shawn Santel! The duo had been observing the show from the audience and took the opportunity to do some damage to the new titleholders…as security ejected them from the building, the Warriors looked for some post-bell retribution until Jack Gamble and Jon Webb appeared to run off their rivals!

Dirden was fired up to avenge Wyatt’s earlier beating as the Dynamo Heavyweight Title was on the line. Wyatt had the clear edge in experience, but Dirden had a ton of momentum on top of his size and power advantage. In the heat of the battle, referee Jay King was knocked down when Dirden attempted to powerbomb Wyatt into the turnbuckles…Dirden caught Wyatt in his Asiatic Spike hold but there was no official to see the tapout. Wyatt capitalized by decking Dirden with the title belt…he made the pin cover and referee King counted three!

It looked like the Dynamo Title had changed hands…but Elvis Aliaga ran out to protest the decision, telling Jay King what had happened when he was down on the mat As a result, the ref ordered the bout to be restarted…Wyatt thought he had added another belt to his collection but it was not to be. In the end, Dirden’s power made the difference as he chokeslammed Wyatt to the mat for the win to retain his championship! Dirden was the winner and Wyatt immediately blamed the loss on Aliaga, sparking a fight between the two…what was Aliaga’s motivation? Was he ensuring that Dirden hung onto the title so he could be the one to take it from him?

Dynamo started a busy month at the Stratford Inn in Fenton…and things promise to get even more exciting as Dynamo returns to Glen Carbon and Off Broadway in the next coming days!

Brandon Espinosa Receives an Assist from Jake Dirden to Rip the MMWA Championship from Brian James

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 21, 2014

 photo b1_zps9a80e415.jpg

Just two months after losing the MMWA Championship to the 2013 St. Louis King of Cable tournament champion” Da Bomb” Brian James in December, Brandon Espinosa is once again the MMWA Champion.

The details of the treachery can only be explained by the two conspirators involved, but either Espinosa, or the 2014 MWR Wrestler of the Year, Jake Dirden are not talking.

The night started out with the biggest crowd in the history of the historic South Broadway Athletic Club as 625 fans came in from the cold for the red hot action. In today’s MMWA you never know what will happen, as was the case when MMWA Commissioner Jim Harris informed Mephisto that he had a match that evening against Harris’s hand-picked opponent.

You could not tell if the fans or Mephisto were more surprised when Dirden marched to the ring. Mephisto had been on a roll at MMWA, and looked to have Dirden in trouble, but on this night, Dirden was just too much to handle as Mephisto were able to hit the Asiatic Spike for the tapout.

As the crowd celebrated in joy, Espinosa came into the ring to attempt a post-match double-team, yet it would be for naught , as Dirden turned the tide and have Espinosa and Mephisto retreat and run for cover.

Big” Dave Osborne captured the MMWA Jr. Championship

The big night of wrestling continued as “Big” Dave Osborne captured the MMWA Jr. Championship from “The Enforcer” Jimmy D , Ace Hawkins defeated Andrew Wilder for the MMWA Jr. Championship, mixed in with several of the young stars of MMWA that had the fans on their feet all night long.

It is amazing how fast happiness can make a U-turn in no time. That is what happened when Espinosa and ” James match came to a close. With Barackus, Mephisto and Brandon Gallagher suspended (Mephisto earlier that evening by Harris when he assisted Brandon Gallagher in beating down Gary Jackson after Gallagher submit to the Cloverleaf) it would seem as if Espy was all alone during his chance at the MMWA Championship.

Wrestling journalist Patrick Brandmeyer recapped the action ….”The referee was bumped as Espinosa hit the brainbuster; Espy went for the move again, but James reversed it into the sitout gourdbuster. There was no referee to count the pin attempt…then Jake Dirden stormed the ring looking for Espinosa. Both men got to their feet as Dirden entered the ring…but Dirden turned around and leveled James with his thumb strike to the throat! Dirden took his leave and the referee recovered in time to count Espinosa’s pin.”

When and how did Espinosa get Jake Dirden to assist him in regaining the MMWA Championship?
Was it planned all along or was he able to make it happen in the final moments before the MMWA Championship?

We may never know, but once again Espinosa has the power at MMWA and Jim Harris has found out quickly that he will have to be at the top of his game to outsmart Brandon Espinosa.

For many fans in St. Louis, Gary Jackson is truly one of the best wrestlers in the past 3 decades. Known as “The Great One”, Jackson has entertained fans with exciting matches and reminding them of the Rules.

 photo GaryJackson3_zps7d1499c7.jpg

What many may not know is that Jackson has been a proud American for the past 25-years serving our country. Last week prior to making his way to the packed house at the Historic South Broadway Athletic Club, Jackson officially retired from the Missouri Air Force National Guard as a Master Sargent.

We were able to catch up with Jackson was still in his military uniform entering the building straight from the honorary ceremony at  Jefferson Barracks, along with his grandson Terrance Woods.

Jackson would go onto defeat Brandon Gallagher with his Cloverleaf submission in the middle of the ring to add another victory in his illustrious career.

This Saturday night, fans can see Jackson in action in East Carondelet, Illinois for SICW taking on the 2013 MWR Future Star of the Year Alexander Rudolph.

Thankfully for the fans of the area, Jackson shows no sign of slowing down.

Gary Jackson

A Husband
A Father
A Grandfather
A champion wrestler
A Solider
And a proud American

We salute you Gary today here at Missouri Wrestling Revival on Feb 15 on a day we would like to call “Gary Jackson Day”.

Beyond Wrestling debuts in the MWR Coverage area

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 30, 2013

 photo Beyond_zps2ddfafd8.jpg

By Brian Kelley

Missouri Wresting Revival.com was on hand to witness the first ever Beyond Wrestling tapings in the MWR Coverage area in St. Louis at the Dynamo Pro Gym . Beyond Wrestling is an innovated approach to the world of pro wrestling that had become the rave among many fans around the world. The exciting card featured many of the top young wrestling talents in the Midwest including the Zero 1 USA Champion Jonathan Gresham, Ring of Honor Superstar Michael Elgin, Devin and Mason Cutter otherwise known as the Hooligans, Evan Gelistico ,Jake Dirden, Alexander Rudolph , Christian Rose, Davey Vega, Jake Parnell, Bolt Brady, JoJo Bravo, Dave Vaughn, Ricky Starks, Blake Steel, Brandon Gallagher, Jeff O’Shea as well as one of the gutsiest matches I had ever seen by a women wrestler when Heidi Lovelace went to a war with Tripp Cassidy in a match that you will have to see to believe.

As soon as the matches come to youtube we will be sure to give you the information on how you can get a copy, till then let’s take a quick look at what Beyond Wrestling is and some action photos of this historic night.

Beyond sports. Beyond entertainment. Beyond Wrestling.

The concept behind Beyond Wrestling is very simple – wrestlers wrestling for wrestlers. Beyond Wrestling is not a wrestling promotion; at least not in the typical sense. Live events are closed to the public, creating an atmosphere impossible to replicate. The goal of Beyond Wrestling is to foster competition amongst those who value self-expression, craftsmanship, and camaraderie more than popularity, financial stability, and tradition. For a professional wrestler, Beyond Wrestling is the platform on which to make the ultimate artistic expression.

“Look, Ma. No fans!”

The progressive presentation of Beyond Wrestling – where fans are prohibited from attending the experimental live events – has attracted rookies from across the globe. Without a locker room, every wrestler remains ringside to dissect each contest. This creates an unprecedented atmosphere encouraging growth and reinforcing the spirit of competition. All of the combatants are forced to perform to the best of their ability in order to win the contest as well as the support of their toughest critics – other wrestlers.

MWR Trading card set Series Two: #3 “The Alternative” Brandon Gallagher

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 13, 2013

 photo 2f056748-c165-4166-937f-820beb9cad5f_zps25f8d20b.jpg

Discovered by Tiffany Lefane, “The Alternative” Brandon Gallagher quickly burst onto the scene, making his presence felt in St. Louis area promotions Dynamo Pro and SICW. Originally from St. Louis, he didn’t hesitate to move to his new home in Seattle, WA to get away from the masses of ignorant “sheople” as he lovingly refers to people as. “The Alternative” looks to make his mark on the indy scene and will do whatever it takes to achieve this goal. Even if it upsets the “sheople.”

Gallagher is one of the young stars in the Midwest, and looks to make waves for years to come. It is with great excitement that we have “The Alternative” Brandon Gallagher as a part of the second series MWR Trading card set.
