“Dirdey” Jake Dirden to defend the PGP Franchise Title for the Final Time

Win…Lose… or Draw….The only 2 time and longest reigning Franchise champion in PGP history will put the belt on the line for the final time in the Proving Ground on December 17th at MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET….. The NWL has signed Jake ( Jack Foster in NWL) to an exclusive contract starting in January of 2017. We at Proving Ground Pro feel that they made a wise decision and wish a huge success in the future for both the NWL and Jack Foster (Jake Dirden). It all comes down to this, Jake Dirden retires as champion or passes the torch to “BuckNasty” Bucky Collins, either way you’ll be witness to Proving Ground Pro history in the making at MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET.

December 17th history is made at the Lawford Theater (225 W Main Street, Havana, IL) with MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET … Doors open at 6:30 PM and the MIRACLE starts at 7 PM. $12 adults and $7 kids or save a couple bucks with $10 adult and $5 kids advance tickets are available in Havana (at Grandpa’s Diner) and Petersburg (at Huebner Tire or Styles & More). If you can’t get to an advance ticket outlet message us on social media (Proving Ground Pro on Facebook and @pgpwrestling on Twitter) and we’ll get you hooked up.

Tag Team Title Match Signed For MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET

December 17th sees the return of PGP Tag Team champions Alpha Class (Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez) to the Lawford Theater (225 W Main Street, Havana, IL) for another title defense. The astounding rise of Alpha Class has become the stuff of legend in the Proving Ground showing just how high you can climb with talent, hard work and determination. Speaking of legends, once upon a time the amazing Krotch pulled off perhaps the most improbable victory in PGP history by defeating the massive Nate Redwing and earning a shot at the PGP Tag Team Titles. It took a while and the titles have changed hands since Krotch started his search….But Krotch has contacted us and will cash in with Dante Leon as his partner versus Alpha Class at MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET. This will be high octane offense and sizzling speed on display in this potential show stealing match up that needs to be seen by you…Yeah, YOU…..BE THERE!!!

Stephen Wolf vs Timmy Lou Retton To Decide Buckley Entrant at MIRACLE

December 17th (Saturday) will be a classic night in the Proving Ground when MIRACLE ON MAIN STREET presents this mind blowing Buckley Memorial Tournament qualifying match…”Leader of the Pack” Stephen Wolf damn near beat Jake Dirden for the Franchise title at our last show, although he came up short Wolf once again showed he’s ready for prime time. Timmy Lou Retton is a star on the rise with one of the most entertaining styles of wrestling you can find. Blending a dynamic high flying gymnastic based assault with impressive mat skills has forced both fans and opponents to take notice of the impressive Retton. Timmy has collected hardware and found his way to several main events already in his career, now he’s looking to put a Buckley Tournament entry on his resume as well. If you’re a fan of independent wrestling “Dream Matches” then Stephen Wolf versus Timmy Lou Retton is an early Merry Christmas present because you can’t wrap awesomeness….Oxygen masks and flight suits may be mandatory for this match….SONIC BOOM!!!

Plus so much more.

For big deal moments in independent professional wrestling… ENTER THE PROVING GROUND!!!

St. Louis Anarchy Holding Out on a Hero

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 8, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Photos Brian “Flair” Kelley

Promoter Pierre Abernathy and Davey Vega started the show…Pierre told the fans that Chris Hero‘s flight had been delayed, but they were adding a match or two to the card to give him time to get to the building. As a result, I joked that the subtitle for Part 1 of Gateway To Anarchy could easily be “Holding Out For A Hero”,

Davey Vega acknowledged the passing of Darren Dean, who had competed for St. Louis Anarchy on a few occasions(usually teaming with Aaron Solo(w)). That segued into the ten-bell salute.

Justin D’Air & The K.C. Wolves(Luke Langley & Graham Bell) vs. Kevin Lee Davidson, Sean Orleans, & Kody Krash: This was K.L.D.’s debut and he made an immediate impression as D’Air and the Wolves did their best to prevent his entry into the match.
 photo 3_zpsush4mkxt.jpg

 photo 2_zpsgwctlchm.jpg

 photo 1_zpssv2xj4z5.jpg

However, the big man got a tag and it was downhill from there for the opposing trio. The finishing sequence saw multiple dives until only Orleans was left in the ring…however, Orleans loudly proclaimed that he wouldn’t risk his neck with such a move. However, Bell got a hold of Orleans and Awesome-Bombed him over the top rope onto everyone else at ringside! K.L.D. finished Langley with his spinebuster finisher in 14:02, lifting Langley high enough that his head bumped a ceiling panel…the big man got over in a major way in his St. Louis Anarchy debut.

“The Money” Matt Cage vs. Paco Gonzalez: Cage wore a “Straight Outta My Closet” T-shirt in rainbow colors…heh. Paco finally got trunks and Cage acknowledged the wardrobe change by noting that he got his “big-boy pants”.

 photo 0_zpstkkys9wj.jpg

 photo 1_zps3fip2pan.jpg

Paco went for the anklelock multiple times in the match, resulting in Cage limping in the late stages of the bout. That tactic led to his downfall as Cage countered the last anklelock attempt into a victory roll pin in 13:55. Alex Castle attempted another sneak attack, but Cage saw him coming and Castle backed off. That led to Cage speaking his mind about the implosion of the Kentucky Buffet tag team…he said that Castle let his other relationships get in the way of the team’s success. They did a good job of building to the following night’s last-man-standing match between the two.

Mike Outlaw vs. Christian Rose:

 photo 3_zpsotmblfll.jpg

 photo 2_zpsjcfnqqqd.jpg

Oddly, it turned out to be the shortest match of the night as it was the only bout to go under ten minutes. Rose got the tapout win with the No-Leaf Clover (Liontamer-style Boston crab) in 8:36.

Stephen Wolf vs. “Buck Nasty” Bucky Collins: Hadn’t seen Bucky in several years(think he worked for High Voltage Wrestling a few times. Bucky’s an entertaining heel and the women in the audience were decidedly unimpressed by his mannerisms.

 photo 5_zpsw7bhgpop.jpg

 photo 4_zpsendt8qny.jpg

Buck Nasty won a good match with a crucifix bomb in 12:58.

“Zesty” Zakk Sawyers vs. Steve O. Reno:

 photo 6_zpsvjwfo3mz.jpg

 photo 7_zpszeyzp5wc.jpg

Both guys were fan favorites in this one, though Reno seemed to be the subtle heel. It could have gone either way, though Zakk recently challenged Gerald James for the Heavyweight Title.

Sawyers stepped off the turnbuckles and jumped backwards into a Diamond Cutter variant, getting the pinfall in 14:51.

The Cause (Evan Gelistico & Adam Caster)(w/ Danny Adams, Everett Connors, & referee Austin Blackburn) vs. The Hooligans(Devin & Mason Cutter) vs. The Viking War Party(“American Viking” Alexander Rudolph & “Littlest Viking” Jake Parnell) vs. Team I.O.U.(“The Down-South DandyNick Iggy & “The Music City Mutt” Kerry Awful) for the Tag Team Titles: This was the Anarchy debut for Iggy and Awful; they were in the rule breaking role with two very popular teams as the other challengers.

 photo 12_zpsfzrmsf8m.jpg

 photo 11_zpstmnot8r4.jpg

 photo 10_zpsfucea1oq.jpg

 photo 13_zpsk14ipyfr.jpg

This was as chaotic as expected; I.O.U. would get a better chance to shine in their standard tag match on the Sunday show. Parnell attempted a tiger suplex on Caster that didn’t do either guy any favors. The Vikings dished out a huge pileup of humanity as Parnell hit a Codebreaker on Awful, then Rudolph choke slammed Iggy onto Awful as Parnell held Awful across his knees! Chaos broke loose at that point, allowing Mr. Gelistico to steal the fall on Iggy in 12:30.

Davey Vega vs. “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt (w/ Greg Jovi): Jovi interfered a bit, which led to Vega sliding out of the ring and wiping out the manager with a pump kick…bwahahaha. Wyatt focused his attack on the leg to potentially set up for his hanging half-crab submission hold…he got Vega in a figure-four leglock at one point, but Vega got to the ropes to escape.

 photo 8_zpsxisj3mcm.jpg

 photo 9_zpszkzfefkb.jpg

Wyatt went for the hold again and Vega small-packaged him for the flash pin in 29:27(!). Surprisingly, Wyatt offered a post-match handshake and Vega accepted the gesture without incident…though Wyatt swiped a kid’s pizza on the way to the backstage area.

Intermission~! Given the length of the show, I indulged a bit and had a total of four sodas: Two Mountain Dews, a root beer, and a Pepsi. There’s your Official Ben Simon Concession Count(tm).

The Big Mustache On Campus” Mikey McFinnegan vs. “Absolute” Ricky Starks: Starks was on cloud nine after his recent appearance on NXT…of course, that lasted all of about ten seconds and most of his TV time was being chucked out of the ring by Colin Cassady. He felt like he was on his way to bigger and better things and took on a decidedly arrogant attitude as a result…he even had an “I’m A Hugger” T-shirt that he personally received from NXT Women’s Champion Bayley Rose. McFinnegan tried on the shirt for size, much to Starks’ dismay.
 photo 14_zpszpn3xxfi.jpg

 photo 15_zpsszf7s0xn.jpg

They had a fine match, ending with Starks hitting the double-underhook faceplant in 11:58.

Jojo Bravo vs. “Dirty” Andy Dalton: Jojo’s been in a bit of a slump recently, partially due to questionable calls by the officials. Of course Dalton will take any opportunity presented to him, so that was right up his alley.

 photo 16_zps9ygyljra.jpg

 photo 18_zps4r4ibatm.jpg

Bravo had the momentum, but a near-collision with the referee gave Dalton the opening to deliver an undetected punt to the Universal Weak Point(tm). Dalton rolled up Jojo for the win in 10:13, adding to Bravo’s existing frustration.

Chris Hero & Trik Davis vs. Danny Adams & Everett Connors (w/ Tag Team Champions Evan Gelistico & Adam Caster & Austin Blackburn): Right around 11:00 PM, Hero was ready to go for this penultimate match of the evening. Hero and Trik go way back, dating back to their early days in IWA Mid-South. If I was fantasy-booking, I would have liked to see him against Christian Rose…Rose’s style was compared to Hero’s for a little while. Perhaps that could happen down the line…hint hint.
 photo 24_zps4fjfigt0.jpg

 photo 23_zpsrlbxuafm.jpg

 photo 21_zpsveja2zpl.jpg

 photo 20_zpsz0loxgaq.jpg

 photo 19_zpsmwvopddj.jpg

The match got a lot of time. Hero hit the Death Blow(Rude Awakening setup into a roaring elbow to the back of the head) on Adams, then Davis followed up with a Diamond Cutter and Hero got the three-count in 24:23.

 photo 30_zps7thwnw0l.jpg

Gerald James (w/ Dorian Victor) vs. Mikey McFinnegan best-of-three-falls for the Heavyweight Title: James had held the title for a mind-blowing 862 days (over two years and totaling 28 months). Fitchett battled James on several occasions, winning some non-title encounters but never being able to unseat the champion.

 photo c81d55b0-757c-43aa-896c-ad32da3c1af3_zpsgufcggcd.jpg

 

 photo 28_zps0sepwn35.jpg

That included one particularly humbling encounter when James beat him in two straight falls. Fitchett infiltrated the BOSS stable under the Dangerous Deveroux mask and nearly cost James the title to Davey Vega, but it was not to be…however, Fitchett earned one more title shot with his victory in the Anarchy Rumble in November. Notably, Victor went to the backstage area instead of staying at ringside for the main event.

They went right after each other from the opening bell, throwing huge bombs right out of the gate…knowing the people involved, that says a lot. Gerald won a quick first fall with the Michinoku Driver in a brisk 3:24. Fitchett lifted Gerald into a torture rack and dropped him into a reverse Go 2 Sleep(hitting the knee to the back of the head) for a near-fall, but hitting the move a second time was enough to even the score in 6:13.

 

Things got really wild in the final fall as Fitchett lawndarted Gerald into the wall, then hit the cradle piledriver in the ring for a near-fall. Gerald managed to fight back, but Fitchett countered a piledriver attempt on the apron by backdropping him onto the edge of the ring! Fitchett set the champion up on the turnbuckles, but Gerald came back with a flying DDT onto the edge of the ring…eep. Fitchett was left bloody, but incredibly managed to keep fighting…he delivered a cradle pildriver on the floor(!), then one more in the ring to FINALLY capture the title in 11:28!

Davey Vega celebrated with the new champion, who had to be assisted from the ring…we found out the following night that Fitchett had suffered a concussion. Dorian Victor and Christian Rose went to the ring to help the former champion…but out of nowhere, Rose turned on both of them! Rose locked James in the No-Leaf Clover, yelling at him “YOU LOST!” before leaving the “father and son” laying in the ring. After all of that, James addressed the fans…he said that whether they loved or hated him, he had hopefully earned their respect after his long title reign. He wasn’t sure how much longer he had to wrestle, but he’d keep fighting.

March 26th IWA Mid-South Photo Recap Sabu vs Prince Ali plus Ryan Phoenix vs Jaysin Strife.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 11, 2010

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

MWR fans a week prior to March 26 the real world was kicking me in the rear hard and I knew that I was going to be covering the High Voltage Wrestling show that Saturday but the weekend could not come soon enough. When my good friend Keny asked for me to ride with him to IWA Mid-south in Bellevue Illinois on that Friday there was no way I was going to be able to get off work on time to get to ST Louis to ride with him, so I asked for a quick day off from the boss to get away so I wouldn’t lose my job. The trip was well worth it.

Six hours on the road there I really had no clue who was on the card other than Kahagas, The Hooligans and Ryan Phoenix who I have been dying to see and ECW original Sabu. When I got their I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my favorites Jaysin Strife would be in action as well as my friend Donnie Peppercricket.

Not only would I get to see Phoenix for the first time another wrestler who has been on my checklist to see would be in action with Prince Ali taking on Sabu. This would also be my first chance to check out Nick Cage, Sal Thomaselli and Devon Moore. The Midwest sweetheart Santana G took on her rival Jessika Haze while Neil Diamond Cutter and Matt Cage tore each other apart.

I would like to thank Keny for the offer to check out this exciting show and IWA-Mid South for their hospitality.

Sat back and check out the sights of IWA –MS

Dartallion Allen’s MWR Top Draws- Technical Masters

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2010

 Brian “Flair” Kelley

One of the most popular features here at Missouri Wrestling Revival returns with Dartallion Allen’s Top Draws and on this edition he allowed me to choose the name. When I got the artwork and discovered that Kurt Angle, Jeremy Wyatt, Dingo and Bailey Mannix were a part of this group, then Nick Tyson and Mike Quackenbush, I first thought to myself “These guys can hang with anyone” Therefore I call this edition Technical Masters.

My personal favorite wrestler today is Kurt Angle. Angle throughout the years has been in some great storylines but in my honest opinion most of the time they have not known what to do with someone so great. With that said no matter the situation when the bell rang you knew it was going to be a great match. Kurt is able to deliver in the ring or on the mic. As a good guy or as the hated heel he has able to get his point across. He is today’s Ric Flair.

The Technical Masters in the Midwest can do it all. Some are loved liked Mike Quakenbush and Dingo while others are hated like Jeremy Wyatt and Bailey Mannix but regardless you want to see them in the ring. Till the next match MWR fans sit back and enjoy a mix of some of the best wrestlers today drawn by none other than Dartallion Allen.

Kurt Angle

One of the most pure wrestlers in the history of the sport, Angle earned respect nationally by becoming a two time National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I champion in college. The world wide by winning the 1995 World Championship tournament, and made history by winning a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, in heavyweight freestyle wrestling.

Angle has dominated in the past decade as he racked up World Championships in WWE, TNA as well as in Japan. Angle is one of the few wrestlers that claim the big three, the look, the Charisma and the ability to wrestle.

In my mind there is no one better in the past 15 years in pro wrestling than Kurt Angle.

Jeremy Wyatt

The Belt Collector has made an impact with main events around the Midwest with the tops stars today. Wyatt often angers fans with his big mouth but backs it up with by winning big matches in exciting fashion.

The 2008 MWR Wrestler of the year has taken down the biggest of wrestlers such as Donovan Ruddick, and then matched moves with the most technical wrestlers today like Dingo, Shawn Shultz, and Davey Richards. Love him or hate him, he is one of the elite in the sport today.

Dingo

In a sport where it seems as if the big men rule, the truth of the matter is the size of a mans heart that determines where he is able to go. Judge the Australian superstar Dingo by appearance and you see a guy that is in shape but by no means the top wrestler in the Midwest. Then you see him in action and it is not mistaken, that the talent and drive is there. There is no wrestler in the MWR Coverage area that is offered more praise and admiration for his ring work by his peers than Dingo. Promoters love him because they know they can match him up with anyone and the fans will love it. When Dartallion Allen and I spoke about the MWR Top Draws for the site he was the first wrestlers that he said he was excited about drawing. There is no doubt that if MWR had been around in the past he would already be a multiple award winner for Wrestler and Match of the year

Recently Dingo announced his retirement from the sport of pro wrestling. MWR would like to wish Dingo the very best and secretly we hopes that he reconsiders.

Mike Quackenbush

“The Master of a 1000 holds” Mike Quakenbush skills and talent range reaches much further that the square circle. As founder of the very popular Chikara, Quakenbush has been the home of some of the most talked about wrestling today.

Quakenbush is one of the most influential men in wrestling he has trained today’s stars Chris Hero, Claudio Castagnoli and Eddie Kingston.

Wrestlers in the Midwest have had the chance to get training seminars from “The Ring Wizard in the recent past NWA Missouri Champion Davey Vega can attest to the teaching ability of Quakenbush as he took two tours of training in the past 2 years that had to be an advantage when he was able to defeat his fellow teacher Dingo for the belt on October 16th of this past year.

With 20 years in the sport Quakenbush shows that hard work does pay off in the wrestling business as Quakenbush is one of the most influential men in the sport today

Nick Tyson

Originally known as simply “Nightmare”, Nick Tyson entered the ring with his face painted for battle and let his wrestling do the talking. Employing a combination of submissions and strikes, Tyson held the championship in the WCWF(predecessor to the LWA) as well as in the LWA itself. A few years into his career, Tyson got rid of the facepaint and formed an alliance with fellow Midwest wrestling standouts Dingo and Pierre Abernathy…thus forming the Submission Squad.

Tyson has also competed for GCW and NWA Central States in Kansas. The biggest win of his career was his upset victory over TNA competitor Alex Shelley in March of 2007. Later in the year, Tyson teamed with longtime ally Dingo to battle Shelley and his partner Chris Sabin…the Motor City Machineguns evened the score on that night. One of Tyson’s most recent standout matches was a battle in January of 2009 with CHIKARA wrestler Mike Quackenbush.

 

Whether in singles or tag team competition, the “Technical Messiah” has proven himself to be a formidable competitor wherever he wrestles!

Bailey Mannix

The MECW Champion Bailey Mannix with his manager Lovely Leon looks like an odd pair but in 2009 they ran rough shot through the promotion to claim the title from Zach Thompson in a dog collar match.

A master of the suplex, Mannix was named the MWR Wrestler of the month in January of 2009. This past December Mannix debut at High Voltage Wrestling teaming with Eric Allen successfully against Markus Crane and Bucky Collins.

As great as a year it was for Mannix in 2009 look for 2010 to be even better.

Coming soon at MWR from Dartallion Allen “The Modern Day Viking” Shawn Shultz
