Dartallion Allen JR MWR Top Draw: 2016 MWR Future Star of the Year Davey Vega

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 15, 2017

Davey Vega has been one of the best kept secrets in the Midwest for some time. One of those reasons is because of his limited exposure in the area due to seeking out challengers outside of the area, but if you were to ask any of the fans of St. Louis Anarchy, they would tell you that he has been a star for years.

MWR agrees with them, but there is no doubt that he has only touched the surface of what he is able to accomplish. Recently at NWL (as Davey Gibson) we watched a wrestling clinic when he went toe to toe with the former Ring of Honor World Champion Kyle O’Reilly in a match at the Casa Loma Ballroom that is an early candidate for match of the year.

Speaking of matches of the year candidates, Vega recently had not one, but two battles that would have to be considered when he teamed with Blood Brother teammate Mathew Grundy ( and fellow 2016 MWR Future Star of the Year Mat Fitchett) against the Royal Blood (Jet and Jax Royal). The two matches left fans wanting more and as my friend Patrick Brandmeyer stated had a feel of the Rock and Roll Express and Midnight Express clashes that set a standard in tag team competition in the 80’s.

Regardless if  he is to find success as a singles star or in tag team action, it is our belief that Davey Vega is one of the premier stars in the sport for many years to come. We welcome you to come out next Saturday at Cape Championship Wrestling as we present him with the 2016 MWR Future Star Plaque in the epic card in Cape Girardeau , Missouri when he will take on former TNA star Joey Ryan.

This MWR plaque is sponsored by our good friend Mike Wilson’ Shooter Spotlight, and will feature this very own artwork in the frame.

The Champagne has been Popped- Dak Draper is the First Ever NWL KC Champion

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 2, 2017

The Mile High Magnum Dak Draper and Blain Meeks went to war at the Scottish Rite Temple in the finals of the NWL KC Championship last night that had fans clamoring for more.

Early on it looked as if Meeks speed would be the deciding factor on his way to the title, but Draper was able find an opening to force his will at key moments of the match. Meek chants from the fans shook the building as their favorite looked to have the match won with his daring and fearless aerial attack he was able to hit, in and out of the ring with expertise timing and perfect location on Draper’s body and head.

After a roller coaster chain of events that saw Marco and Leonel Howlett enter the ring in hopes of helping out Draper, the Royal Blood, Jax and Jet came out to run them out of building. It was still anyone’s match to win. When the smoke cleared it was Draper that was able to get the 1-2-3 and make history as the first ever NWL KC Champion.

Now Draper has his  million dollar looks, the perfect tan and the NWL KC Championship belt around his waist with the finest drinks in hand. Meeks can hold his head up high and learn from this classic match to prepare him for his rematch that we can’t wait to witness ourselves.

Keep an eye out at MWR to find out who will be the first to face the new champion for the title.

We hope to see you this Sunday as the huge NWL STL Tournament  is set to happen  at the Casa Loma Ballroom in St. Louis.

NWL Hosts Successful Pro Wrestling Debuts in KC, St. Louis, Prepares to Crown League Champions

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 20, 2017

15976964_1220857381294922_4156834726153145111_nKansas City, Mo. (PRWEB) January 19, 2017

The NWL, a new pro wrestling startup conceived by Kansas City-based entrepreneur Major Baisden, debuted to enthusiastic large crowds at midtown KC’s Scottish Rite Temple on Saturday, Jan. 7, and at the Casa Loma Ballroom in St. Louis on Thursday, Jan. 12.

“The strong attendance and fan response at both inaugural events indicate that KC and St. Louis continue to be two of the best cities for pro wrestling in the country,” says Baisden, who started the NWL in July with an idea, a business plan, three staff members, and not a single wrestler under contract. “The fans in both cities seemed to rejoice that the local wrasslin’ they grew up loving was finally back. Witnessing the tremendous crowd reactions at both venues was really special to me, as I’ve been a huge fan since I was a kid. After both shows, we received several positive reviews by wrestling journalists, podcasters, and social media fans alike for the quality of the presentation and the in-ring product itself.”

Both initial NWL shows featured main events pitting teams representing Kansas City and St. Louis battling each other for civic pride and bragging rights as part of what will be an ongoing I-70 Series of Wrestling. Team NWL KC enjoyed the home mat advantage at the Scottish Rite, winning a six-man tag bout, while Team NWL STL triumphed in a rematch in front of a near-capacity crowd at the Casa Loma, with the results in sending the local fans in each town home happy.

Throughout the season, the final show of each month will pit wrestlers from KC and St. Louis against each other, with the city earning the most victories recognized as the League’s best town. The NWL’s top city will also earn negotiation rights for all new talent entering the NWL in 2018. The NWL is running events in KC every other Saturday and in St. Louis every other Thursday, making it vital for fans leaving the building wanting more.

To further capitalize on the natural rivalry between KC and St. Louis, both promotions will soon kick off tournament matches to decide the League’s KC and STL champions this spring. The NWL STL champion and the NWL KC kingpin will then square off in a mid-season showdown, with the winner earning home-arena advantage for the year’s big finale in December.

On the night of the season finale, the NWL’s League champion will also be decided that evening with a tourney involving the St. Louis and KC titleholders as well as the No. 1 contenders for both belts. The December spectacular will also crown the NWL’s tag-team champions in a tournament featuring the four teams with the best records over the course of the 12-month season.

“From personal issues to civic pride to championships that are earned in the ring after months of intense competition, NWL KC and NWL STL are presenting compelling, storyline-driven entertainment featuring some of the best athletes in the world,” Baisden says. “More than anything, the NWL is proud to bring back the kind of pro wrestling the fans in both these great cities deserve.”

NWL KC returns for its second show Saturday at the Scottish Rite on Saturday, Jan. 21, while NWL STL brings its own brand of wrestling action back to the Casa Loma on Thursday, Jan. 26. Tickets are available at fightkc.ticketfly.com and fightstl.ticketfly.com, respectively.

From the moment the fans entered into the beautiful Kansas City Scottish Rite they were able to have a cold adult beverage while enjoying a WWE style ring and jumbo tron that filled the screen with video packages of the future heroes and villains that will enter the ring each and every other Saturday night.
