MECW Champions Bromance Jordan McEntyre & Knight Wagner

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 12, 2010

One of the most flamboyant teams to ever make their way to the Midwest are the current MECW Tag Team Champions Jordan McEntyre & Knight Wagner.

Led by the vixen Eryn, McEntyre and Wagner brings to the ring a deceiving amount of talent that is hidden from the theatrics of their attire and demeanor throughout the match. Make no mistake tag teams in the Midwest Bromance are the real deal.

MWR Fans your next chance to see one of the top teams in the Midwest will be this month on August 21st when they defend their MECW Tag Team Championship against the new team “The Brawlers” Maddog McDowell and Brian Scrilla in Wood River Illinois.

MWR caught up with the champs earlier this month and they had these words for anyone that steps up to the plate to challenge them for the belts.

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.

Not only did the MECW family not witness the return of Krotch but they were introduced to a “new” MECW wrestler: Matt Mayday! Despite the new found hate the MECW Family had towards the MECW “newcomer”. He did make an impressive debuted as he quickly dispatched of Nacho O’Reily in timely fashion & also debuting with the “new” MECW wrestler was a new finisher. As Matt Mayday put Nacho O’Reily away w/ a top rope curb stomp all you could say was forget about it lights out 1,2,3 it was over.

6.) XXXplicit Content: MECW Heavyweight Champion: Bailey Mannix, Manager: “Lovely” Leon Alexander and The “Pride of Peoria Champion” Eric Allen defeated the Saints & Sinner: Brian Scrilla, Marshall Garrett, and Evan Money

In a huge match that determined the career of XXXplicit Content’s Manager “Lovely” Leon Alexander. If XXXplicit Content and Eric Allen did not win the match then “Lovely” Leon Alexander would be fired from MECW. But if XXXplicit Content & Eric Allen won the match, then “Lovely” Leon Alexander would be resigned to a new MECW Manager contract.

This match had a lot of action and high flying ability as well as some great tag team work done by Marshall Garrett and Brian Scrilla. Things got crazy when the match broke loose when Brian Scrilla went on a rampage and went after current two time MECW Heavyweight Champion: “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix. While Scrilla and Money were taking Mannix pillar to post and with Eric Allen down it left “Lovely” Leon Alexander all alone in the hands of Marshall Garrett. Garrett forearmed “Lovely” Leon to stun him, then picked him up for the classic air plane spin, Garrett finished it off by putting Leon Alexander over his knee and spanking him. Marshall Garrett ready to put him away but the ref was distracted. This gave Eric Allen the perfect chance to waffle Marshall Garrett upside the head with his “Pride Of Peoria Championship”. Completely leveling Marshall Garrett and giving “Lovely” Leon Alexander the chance to pin him and pick up the 3 count victory.

WINNER: XXXplicit Content: “Lovely” Leon Alexander and MECW Heavyweight Champion: “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix and”The Pride of Peoria Champion”: Eric Allen

After the match Scrilla wasn’t finished as he grabbed the mic and told the MECW Family that there was something he needed to come clean with and needed to get something off his chest. But he wanted to do it at the October 24th MECW show face to face with MECW Heavyweight: Champion: “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix.

Dubi meets the MECW Fans.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 23, 2009

This is Dubray Tallman out  and  about mingling with the fans of the wrestling community.  We all know as I had said before it is the fans that bring as much action as the wrestlers to the shows. 

 This past Saturday I was in Wood River, IL enjoying our friends at MECW. Prior to the show I had made my way through the crowd to find four fans with opinions of whom their favorites were and how long they have followed MECW.

 I did my best to get their favorite wrestler to pose with them during intermission. Unfortunately some fans like the bad guys of the wrestling world and I was unable to get MECW management to get those guys come out for a picture with the fans.  Why can’t we all just get along?? 

 The theme of the night was that many of the fans first favorite was Dewey “Booger” Dawson who had retired at the last show so I asked them to take a moment to think of who they liked currently at MECW.

The first fan I spoke to was Kenny Busby from Wood River Illinois who had been coming to MECW since their start in. Kenny stated that his favorite was Brian Scrilla. Scrilla is one of the tough guys with a big heart and I had no problem getting that special picture with the two of them.
MECW July 18th 150

 Up next I asked my wrestling buddy and fellow Fuzzy Hat Club member/president Terry Joe Wray (Panther) from Cottage Hills, Illinois who has been following MECW since 2007. Panthers favorite was one of mine as well Krotch, but when I went to get MECW to ask for him to come out for the picture they stated that he was in “No mood after his lost to Gabriel Brimstone”  Confused I asked my friend if I could take his picture anyway.

I was then able to catch up with Joe VanDuran who had traveled from Chicago, Illinois to MECW for the second time to see his favorite Bailey Mannix wrestled. I knew the answer was going to be a no because Mannix is a “JERK!!”  So guess what?  I was right so Joe said that he would be happy to take a picture with me for the site. Thank you Joe!!

 The fourth fan I found was Annie Smith from East Alton, Illinois who had followed MECW for at least two years. Annie told me that Krotch was her favorite as well, so I explained to her that he was “In no mood” arrhhh… I offered her to choose another wrestler and she quickly picked The Bayou Outlaws Maddog McDowell and Aaron Masterson.  They were gracious enough to take a picture with her and during the excitement I forgot to ask the two tough wrestlers for a picture with me as well.

A great night of wrestling until Krotch ruined it by hitting Gabrille Brimstone with a chair. I thought that they were friends. Krotch, I want you to know that your no longer one of my favorite wrestlers.

 I want to thank MECW for allowing me to meet with the fans and will always look forward to coming back to Wood River.

This weekend I will be at Lethal Wrestling Alliance in House Springs Missouri hoping to meet more wrestling fans. If any of the LWA fans would like to be a part of “Dubi Meets the Fans” let me know. I am hoping to do four at each show. If you are not one of the first four I know that my boyfriend Brian “Flair” Kelley and I will be back to support pro wrestling in the Midwest.

MECW Recap June 27th with Pictures & Promos for Dog Collar match This Saturday

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 13, 2009

By MECW Management
Pictures By Brian “Flair” Kelley

JUNE 27, 2009

1.) MECW Great Plains Trophy Battle Royal

Mr.K started the night out with a bang & kicked it off with the MECW Great Plains Trophy Battle Royal!!!

This Match was intense, as it seen fifteen men enter and only one was left standing in broiled in an air of controversy

Eric Allen was eliminated by Jordan McEntyre. Eric Allen was so disgusted with being eliminated by Jordan McEntrye that he re-entered the Battle Royal just to illegally eliminate Jordan McEntrye. As you already know this didn’t set well with Jordan,. Jordan quickly leaped up and chased Eric Allen to the back!

Secondly “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix (Leader of MECW faction XXXplicit Content) caused Gabriel Brimstone to accidentally eliminate Krotch. By shoving them into each other and knocking heads. With Gabriel Brimstone still stunned, the “XXXplicit One” was able to dispose of Brimstone as well. But Bailey Mannix wasn’t done cheating yet as slapped Dewey “Booger” Dawson across the face w/ his managers: “Lovely” Leon Alexander’s crop whip. Temporarily ringing Boogers bell long enough to gain elimination.

Unfortunately for “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix he was left in the ring one on one with none other than Brian Scrilla. After being manhandled by every good guy that stepped in the ring against Bailey Mannix in the Battle Royal. He was now asking Scrilla for a time out breather.

Even going as far as begging on his knees for Scrilla to give him a moment. But Brian Scrilla only gave him a moment to kick Mannix square in the chest!!! Then Scrilla quickly started delivering shot after shot to the head of Bailey Mannix!! With it all looking over, Scrilla sent Mannix into the ropes but only for him to reverse and for Brian Scrilla to hang onto the ropes. But the “XXXplicit One” was quick on the attack and wanting to get the final elimination. But Scrilla was waiting for him and back body dropped him over the top rope too gain the last elimination!!! Or so he thought, during his celebration Ryan Slade came out and sent Scrilla over the top rope to gain the final elimination in the Battle Royal!!! Mr.K came out in dismay and confirmed that Ryan Slade was part of the Battle Royal but had taken his sweet time getting out to the ring to compete.

Ryan Slade had also gained the opportunity to face MECW Heavyweight Champion: Zach Thompson later that night in the main event.

2.) Knight Wanger vs. Juice Robinson

Both these men had competed in the Battle Royal but their completion wasn’t gonna take a back seat to that. Both of these men took each other to the limit but it was Knight Wagner who prevailed over the newest MECW wrestler. But it wasn’t without challenge, as Juice Robinson gave Knight Wagner a run for his money.

WINNER: Knight Wagner

3.) MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone with Brian Scrilla vs. “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix with “Lovely” Leon Alexander

Bailey Mannix thought he had seen the last of Gabriel Brimstone from the Battle Royal. But he was dead wrong as he had one of the biggest challenges set in front of him. The MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone!!

Bailey Mannix wasn’t alone as he was accompanied to the ring by his very resourceful manager: “Lovely” Leon Alexander. But Gabriel Brimstone wasn’t alone neither as his new mouth piece had accompanied him to the ring as well: Brian Scrilla!!

Even though the playing fields were evened, this still wasn’t an easy match for either champion or challenger. This match seen Bailey Mannix deliver a dangerous butterfly suplex,a Brian buster and a knee drop to the face of Gabriel Brimstone!!

But that couldn’t keep Brimstone down for the 3 count as he come fighting back with side Russian leg sweep, a spine buster, and a devastating charging corner clothesline!

Gabriel Brimstone went for the DDT, “Lovely” Leon took the moment to cause a distraction long enough for Bailey to drop Brimstone with his chain and go for a chair. Krotch quickly made the save and took the chair out of Bailey Mannix hand. Bailey Mannix quickly dropped to his back and started yelling, grabbing the ref attention which caused Bailey Mannix to gain the win via DQ!!

WINNER: “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix

The fireworks were not over yet, with Gabriel Brimstone confused as to why he was DQ. He began to have words with Krotch on why he hit Bailey Mannix in the head with a chair. Krotch swore up and down he didn’t and was just trying to save Brimstone from a far worse fate.

A shoving match ensued between Krotch and Brimstone till Krotch got angry enough and walked away from Gabriel Brimstone. Gabriel Brimstone didn’t want this to go unsettled, so Scrilla quickly grabbed a mic. Telling Krotch, that this bickering and fighting has to stop. That at the next MECW show: JULY 18th, Krotch and Brimstone were going to settle all their problems in the ring. After the match whoever wins wins, but they gotta put everything behind them after the bell rings!!

4.) Bayou Outlaws vs. The “Pride of Peoria Champion” Eric Allen & Jordan McEntyre

Bayou Outlaws came out ready for a tag team number one contender ship match against the MECW Tag Title Holders: Huge In Japan (a part of XXXplicit Content). The welcome was quickly spoiled as Eric Allen the “Pride of Peoria” made his presents felt. He grabbed a mic to let the fans know that he was going to add more gold to his collection by getting a shot for the MECW Tag Team Championships next month. Mr.K pointed out one problem, he asked EA. “Who is your tag team partner for this evening?” Eric Allen in his excitement came to the ring without having a partner in mind or on hand.

“So Mr.K told Eric Allen that “Since you don’t have a partner, I’m going to find one for you. Were going to go to intermission and when we come back I’ll have your partner picked out andready to go!”

Mr.K shocked Eric Allen and the MECW Family by naming Jordan McEntyre the tag team partner for Eric Allen. Eric Allen to say the least wasn’t too happy. Also it wasn’t a good sign for things to come when Jordan McEntyre shook hands with the Bayou Outlaws!!
MECW 6-27-09 182
It didn’t take long for Jordan McEntyre to teach Eric Allen a lesson on being a good sportsman, but also in winning isn’t everything. Because in the end it was the Bayou Outlaws with an assist from Jordan McEntyre that picked up the win!!

WINNERS: The Bayou Outlaws

But after the match it went down hill quick, as Jordan McEntyre & Eric Allen were all over each others. Between Mr.K, Ref Waldo, and Brian Scrilla pulling them apart. It still took some doing but, Brian Scrilla calmed down Jordan and Mr.K & Waldo threatened Eric Allen with a suspension.

In the end Mr.K told Eric Allen that next month July 18th MECW show. That Eric Allen would be putting his “Pride of Peoria Championship” on the line in a championship on a pole match! Mr.K told Eric Allen that it was none negotiable and if she didn’t accept the match, that Eric Allen would never compete in MECW again!!

5.) Evan Money with Brian Scrilla vs. Dewey “Booger” Dawson

Evan Money had a huge challenge ahead of him as he was facing a MECW wrestler that had only two loses under his belt since he was in MECW. But with out hesitation this high flying, high impact, and fast paced match. Booger seemed to have this match synched up. But a springboard frog splash later and Evan Money had obtained his first victory!!!

This match started off with a blast as MECW Heavyweight Champion: Zach Thompson came off the top rope with a senton onto Ryan Slade who was standing on the outside of the ring. After both made it into the ring, Ryan Slade the “Canadian Sex Icon” quickly cut off Thompson by grabbing his tights and dropping him throat first into the middle rope. Then an assist by Bailey Mannix by choking Zach Thompson on the middle ropes. But that wasn’t enough for Ryan Slade to drive any air that was left in Zach Thompson body. Ryan Slade stood on the back of the MECW Heavyweight Champion, choking him further on the middle rope. At this point the “Canadian Sex Icon” was going for a lateral press and only garnered a two count.

Ryan Slade was focused on driving all the air out of Zach Thompson’s body by delivering clubbing blows. Following up Ryan Slade stood on the hands of Zach Thompson & started to chop the back of MECW Champion: Zach Thompson. Ryan Slade doing everything he could to push all the air out of Zach Thompson’s so he wouldn’t be able to kick out of a pin attempt.

Zach wisely used his feet to heel kick Ryan Slade in the head. Zach Thompson then sent Slade off the ropes only to reverse and connect with a side Russian leg sweep, but still the MECW Heavyweight Champion kicked out at the two count. Ryan Slade stayed on top of the Champion as he sunk in a deep dragon sleeper, now forcing Zach Thompson to fight for air!!

The MECW Heavyweight Champion quickly found a way out as he used his feet to climb the turnbuckles and get out of the hold. With a quick forearm shiver to the back of Ryan Slade and a Irish whip. Zach Thompson came back with an amazing flying clothesline, back elbow, and a tooth shattering wheel kick!!! The tenacious Ryan Slade kicked out at two!!! Zach Thompson sent him in the corner and though eating the boot of Ryan Slade would’ve given Ryan Slade the opportunity he needed to capitalize. But Zach Thompson caught Slade off the 2nd rope with an amazing arm! Once again only a two count!

Now Zach Thompson the MECW Heavyweight Champion was ready to end the match with his devastating spinning back heel kick. Ryan Slade though was one step ahead and ducked the kick and connect with a club to the back of Thompson. Slade followed that up with an amazing neck breaker, shades of the late great Rick Rude. Slade was still only able to get a two count, proving the heart of the defending MECW Heavyweight Champion, Zach Thompson.

Ryan Slade was growing angry at this point and was ready to end it all w/ a deadly spike pile driver! Zach Thompson fought back and hit a back drop and kick to the head and looked to be ready to put on his own pile driver. Ryan Slade found his way out with a single leg take down and attacked the Champion with sharpshooter! Zach Thompson made it to the ropes which in turn only angered Slade even more. Ryan Slade pulled Zach Thompson away from the ropes and slappedon a cross face submission, working even harder to make Zach Thompson the MECW Heavyweight Champion tap out. But the “Unbreakable” wasn’t going to tap out, and fought his way out of the submission hold!

Ryan Slade was getting desperate and went to use use his newly won trophy to take the head off Zach Thompson. The ref was distracted but Zach Thompson ducked and luck had ran out on the The “Canadian Sex Icon”. Especially after a skull cracking eziguri, followed by the Belfast Buster by the Champion ! 1,2,3 and Zach Thompson retained his MECW Heavyweight title!!

WINNER AND STILL MECW HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: The “Unbreakable” Zach Thompson

Before the fans had a moment to celebrate the leader of XXXplicit Content Bailey Mannix attacked the MECW Champion with a chain!!
MECW 6-27-09 353

Mr.K ran into the ring to put a stop to “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix. Bailey Mannix, apologized in jest for his actions. Zach Thompson, never one to back down challenged Bailey Mannix next month to a match. Oh, but it wasn’t any ordinary match, since Bailey Mannix liked to hit people with a chain. Zach Thompson was challenging Bailey Mannix to a DOG COLLAR MATCH!!

Bailey Mannix looking for an advantage going into their dog collar match next month seized the opportunity and attacked Thompson again, this time he floored him he a reverse death valley driver. Bailey Mannix did not end there as he put Zach Thompson on his shoulders while Ryan Slade delivered a top rope flip pile driver, injuring Zach badley/ Brian Scrilla and Evan Money came to ring to assist Zach Thompson, but he refused their help and limped out of the ring on his own power!!!!

2.) Jordan McEntyre defeated “Pride Of Peoria Champion” Eric Allen with a school boy pin. Everyone thought that Jordan McEntyre had just become the new “Pride Of Peoria Champion” and the place erupted with cheers. Eric Allen quickly got on the mic and informed everyone that the first match he was in was to defend his “Pride Of Peoria Championship” Belt not against Jordan McEntyre!!! So Eric Allen was still the “Pride of Peoria Champion” He also stated that he would defend the belt when he said so not when Mr.K wanted him too!!!

3.) Brian Scrilla defeated 1/2 of the MECW Tag Team Champions: Huge In Japan: Jimmy Rockwell with the Heart Punch. XXXpicit Content came out to rear their ugly heads lead by Bailey Mannix before the match and not only to say what was on their mind but to make fun of the largest group of MECW Family that shows up the FUZZY HAT CLUB!!! With black fuzzy hat’s they did their job but not without being booed even more It didn’t take long for Mr.K to run them off from ring side and get the match underway but after Scrilla secured a victory XXXPLICIT CONTENTS Ricky Kwong & Ryan Slade attacked Brian Scrilla, who was quickly saved by the Bayou Outlaws!!!!

4.) Krotch defeated ½ of the MECW Tag Champs: Huge In Japan: “The Asian Sensation” Ricky Kwong with the Krotch Rocket. Krotch came out to ask the MECW Family “WHAT…..IS……SHAKE’N!!!!!” But on a more serious note to let the MECW Family know that his match last month against the MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone was his greatest match and challenge ever!! He also wanted a rematch against the MECW Independent champion but before we could get an answer he was interrupted by Huge In Japan once again. In which they told Krotch to quit his whining that no one wanted to hear him complain!! To just accept his lose and move on. Krotch quickly challenged Huge in Japan for their MECW Tag Team Championships!!!! Huge In Japan let Krotch know that he had to earn his spot, they just don’t let anyone face them for the MECW Tag Belts!!! But Mr. K quickly came to ring side and forced Ricky Kwong to face Krotch with the stipulation being that if Krotch beat Kwong then he would be able to challenge Huge In Japan next month’s MECW May 23rd show for the MECW Tag Titles!!!! But after the match Huge In Japan attacked Krotch but only to be stopped by the MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone!!!!!!

5.) “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade defeated MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone via DQ. After a whole match of cheating by Ryan Slade, who even went far as removing his wrist tape and trying to choke the life out of Gabriel Brimstone!!!! Brimstone quickly grew tired of Slades cheating and shoved the ref on the way to attack Ryan Slade and getting himself Disqualified!!! Before Ryan Slade could escape he was DDT for his troubles! Then when the Ref: Waldo tried to get Brimstone under control but was almost DDT for his troubles. Huge In Japan once again tried to attack Gabriel Brimstone but were given a double DDT. The one thing that this journalist finds odd his that Krotch didn’t make it to ring side to save Gabriel Brimstone. In fact he didn’t show up at all. But before it was all said and done Mr.K came out and told XXXplicit Content and Huge in Japan he was tired of all the interference!!! So as punishment to them XXXplicit Content’s: Huge In Japan and Ryan Slade were forced to face The Bayou Outlaws and Brian Scrilla in a 6 man tag match after intermission!!!!

6.) XXXplicit Content’s: Huge In Japan & Ryan Slade defeated The Bayou Outlaws and Brian Scrilla after “Lovely” Leon threw salt in Aaron Masterson eye’s and Ricky Kwong delivered a reverse thrust kick shades of the Great Kabuki picked up the pinfall victory. Bayou Outlaws and Scrilla seemed to have the match well in hand especially after Maddog McDowell and Brain Scrilla connected with a huge double flapjack. But XXXplicit Content stole the victory and almost escaped. Unfortunately for Ryan Slade he stayed out their too long cutting down the fans making mention that he was gonna sweep the battle royal for the Great Plaines Trophy!! Even mentioning that the first person he was going to eliminate was the overweight, ugly, and slow Brian Scrilla because after all he’s beat him once and cost him a match. While Slade wasn’t looking Brian Scrilla snuck back into the ring and leveled Ryan Slade with a clothesline and a Swinging Neck breaker, then finished him off with a heart punch!!!! Ryan Slade couldn’t leave under his own power which forced XXXplicit Content to have to carry him off!!!!

Will we see the “Canadian Sex Icon” at the battle royal?? Guess will find out what his health condition is at the May 23rd show.

7.) Mark Sterling defeated Mike Sydal with a power bomb then made him tap with a sharpshooter the match was high fling and high impact, with Sydal doing the flying and Mark Sterling doing the impacting. Sterling did everything to keep Sydal down but he couldn’t stop the high flying ability. Sydals seem to be over confidence after an earlier win from Sterling at MECW at a past show. Add in the craftiness of the ring veteran Sterling and it was all she wrote for Mike Sydal when he caught the fan favorite off the top with a power bomb and a Sharp Shooter to boot!!!!

8)Rebel Lucha defeated Eric Fantabulous in both of their MECW debuts. The wild and crazy RebeL Lucha excited the crowd with quick moves and fast strikes. Fantabulous was able to slow him down and attempted to make the mask man tapped with an arm bar. Rebel Lucha was able to get loose on way to a big win a MECW

9.) Zach Thompson defeated Dewey “Booger” Dawson, Evan Money, and Bailey Mannix in a Fatal Four Way Match for the MECW Heavyweight Championship. With the three keeping Bailey Mannix out of the match it seemed all but won with the high fling ability of Zach Thompson and Evan Money anything was possible. You couldn’t count out Dewey Dawson strength and power!!! In the end Bailey Mannix got the accidental tag and began cherry picking opponents but ended up being eliminated to the outside of the ring. Highly upset, Bailey Mannix grabbed a chair right as the ref was knocked down, then he leveled the current champ Dewey Dawson, then Zach Thompson, but before he could get Evan Money. Evan caught him with a leg lariet of his own which knocked the chair in the face of Bailey Mannix sending him to the outside. Evan then put him down with a senton dive from the top rope to the outside. Unfortunately for Mannix though is that when he struck Zach Thompson with the chair he fell on the prone body of Dewey and when the ref came to, he counted the 1,2,3!!! WINNER and the NEW MECW Heavyweight Champion: “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson.

MWR Spotlight: Eric Allen The Peorian Pride Champion”?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 20, 2009

eric-allen

 

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

 

Eric AllenThe Peorian Pride Champion”?  If you are a fan of wrestling and did not know that such a title existed then you are not alone. Just by chance I was in Wood River Illinois to check out MECW for MWR when this brash cocky Eric Allen was introduced to the crowd as the Peorian Pride Champion (much to my surprise) in his match with Brian Scrilla.  I consider myself knowledgeable of the independent scene in this area but this was the first that I had heard of such a title.

 

With the camera in hand I watched as Allen used every trick in the book to keep his coveted title belt. Scrilla was the victim of foul play when “Exxxplicit Content” member Ryan Slade’s valet Jenna Stark distracted the referee, to allow Slade to use the belt on Scrilla’s knee to preserve the victory and retain the title.

 

I was able to catch up with Allen after the match to ask him “Where did you win this belt?” His reply to me was that he had won the belt in Peoria Illinois. Allen stated “Peoria is famous for the fact that for something to succeed it must work in Peoria. If it works in Peoria then it will work anywhere. The Pro Wrestling legends organization got together and decided to bring all the top stars in Illinois and several superstars of the WWE, TNA and ROH. We competed in an underground tournament of 64 to determined Champion to finally get to the truth too who the best wrestler in the world really was” When I plainly asked who the superstars were that was in the tournament Allen was quick to say “I have no time for 20 questions, I have to get back to Peoria, they are having a parade to commemorate my victory tonight.”

 

 While I was on the three hour trip back from MECW and wrestling was hot on my mind. I could not wait to do the research and find out more about this Championship and more importantly why MWR was not invited? 

 

On Monday evening I decided to see how Allen’s parade went. I went on the trusty websites and did a search for parade in Peoria March 21….nothing. I thought maybe it was listed on March 22 beings that it was so late….nothing. Hmmm… I did a thorough search on the Peoria’s newspaper websites and still came up with zilch.  Who knows maybe it was “underground”!

 

I decided to contact some of the MWR Wrestling advisers. One correspondent that wished to remain anonymous enlightened me with some great information.

 

 I was told that Eric Allen “started out in Gateway Championship Wrestling in St Louis under the tutelage of Dingo for 5 months. During the later stages of the company Ego Express (KC Karrington and Steven Kennedy) , Shorty Biggs, Sean Vincent and Cameron Cage took over the training. Allen quickly felt that he had trained with the best, so that proved that he was superior to the rest of the locker room and he had yet to have a match.

 

The correspondent went on to tell me that “His (Eric Allen) ego escalated even further when his hand was raised in Overland Park when he defeated Trent Stone. In Eric’s mind he was a World Champion in the making.  Then by surprise GCW went under and he was left without a home promotion. When you saw Eric all he ever talked about was how he could have been the greatest Gateway Championship Champion of all time. Time went on and he never really seemed to be focused.”

 

Then he got the call from Lethal Wrestling Alliance to wrestle young Brandon Aarons  when the Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) came to town. He told anyone that would listen, take notice because the MCMG may take him back with them to TNA after he schooled “This punk kid”.

 

Aarons was able to get the win and really seemed to get in the head of Allen. Later that same month Allen got another chance to show the LWA what he was made of defeating “Just” Rick Stone.  After the match was over Allen spent the rest of the night lobbing LWA Management for another chance at Brandon Aaron claiming that their first match was fluke.  Allen received his wish and when LWA returned to St Charles the next month the two went at it again it was a repeat of their first encounter.

 

Allen just disappeared for almost a year and hit rock bottom when he was defeated by Steven Miller. Eric Allen who envisioned himself as the next World Champion was furious and humiliated when an LWA fan started a thread asking “Who the F is Eric Allen?”  One fan thought is was a ref, another one replied he is good a drawing pictures, and one Superfan demanded that he got to see pictures of this Eric Allen still in disbelief that he existed.

 

High Voltage Wrestling certainly knows who Eric Allen is. They got to see first hand the talent first hand on March 14th where he was very impressive in his domination of Max Archer. After the match was over he was seen lobbying HVW booker Frank Thurman for a HVW title shot with comments like “Let me put HVW on the wrestling map, HVW is young and fresh looking to strive to become the best in the Midwest and I can bring the promotion to the next level.

 

My correspondent went on to say “The last I caught up with Eric Allen he had told me how he had won this Peorian Pride Championship.” (I had not told my contact where and how Allen had told me he won it)  Allen said that he was headlined in a huge secret  fundraising wrestling event for the Republican Party at the Peoria Civic Center to determined the very first Peorian Pride Champion. He would not say who he fought but hinted that it was a former WWE Superstar who happens to be in the UFC right now. Any fool would know that he was wanting me to think that it was Brock Lesner but when I humored him and asked was it Lesner he replied “ I would love to tell you but you know the government, everything is a secret.”

 

 He ended it with “The man is talented, there is no doubt about it. The problem is his lack of friends due to his ego.” The man is shady and I wouldn’t turn my back on him if I was one of his friends.

 

 Word got back to Allen that I was inquiring information about his title and history and he contacted me via e-mail.  It was short and sweet, “Mr. Kelley make your way to Woodriver Illinois on April 25 at MECW to see the future of the sport and if you’re lucky I will give you the time to know more about the most dominate champion of the Midwest, Eric Allen “The Peorian Pride Champion”.  Tell my fans that I am blessing them with my appearance at High Voltage Wrestling in May when they return to Granite City, IL on May 9th.”

 

It looks as if I will have to wait a little longer to find out the truth of Eric Allen. Join MWR at Woodriver Illinois on April 25 as we try to get to the truth of the Peorian Pride Championship. Till then  for more information on this show please go to MECWrestling.com
