Dubi meets the IHW Fans November 2010 with a special appearance at MECW

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 10, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

We were excited to be a pat of Independent Hardcore Wrestling’s final show of 2010 in Jerseyville Illinois on November 21st.

IHW has had some great matches throughout the year. Add great matches with some buildings full of fans; IHW has to be considered among the finalist for the MWR Promotion of the Year in 2011.

Our good friends Drew and Gary was there to hang out with me during the matches making the night that much more fun.

The MWR wrestler of the night was Neil Diamond Cutter. It had been forever since we saw the youngest Cutter. Neil had his hands full on this night when he was set to face off with the powerful Chris L.O.G.A.N and a very biased referee Ace Roberts. Prior to his match though he wore the MWR shirt to the ring and threw it to young Alex.

Alex was in attendance with his brother Dalton and was able to get his picture taken with a very sore Neil Diamond Cutter.

Andrew Feruson from Grafton Illinois was impressed with Graves who had demolished young Johnny Griffen in his very first match. Graves who can be very intimating at times was in good spirits when we asked for a picture with his new fan.

Photobucket

Brandon Aarons has won over fans all around the Midwest in 2010 (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Nathan Franke from Jerseyville Illinois was glad to see wrestling come to his hometown. Nathan was quick to let me know that he wanted his picture with Brandon Aarons.

Aarons has not only won over the hearts of the women in the Midwest but the respect of the men as well.

Photobucket

Dubray takes a moment from her work of gathering fans for their pictures to meet The Manimal. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

I sometimes get so busy that I forget to have my picture taken with a wrestling star as well. On this night one guy that was easy to remember was called The Manimal. During his match with Chaz Wesson the Manimal was whipped and chopped in and out of the ring. I had to give him respect though because he did not back out from the punishing blows that was heard throughout the building. I was happy to have my picture taken with the Wildman.

On this night that would not be the only show we would make. As soon as the last bell was rung at IHW, Brian was determined to make it to MECW 30 minutes down the road in Woodriver.

We were able to make it to the main event featuring MECW Champion Eric Allen taking on Bailey Mannix in a 30 Minute Iron Man match. Brian said the clock had 27 minutes 32 seconds on the clock when he took his first shot of this awesome match. In the final minute Mannix would pin Allen and once again becoming the MECW Champion.

For a full photo recap of that match click here

After the match MECW fans Andrew Davis and Blake Young asked to get their picture taken with the new Champion. To make it that much sweeter Brian was able to get MECW Stars Mathew McDarby and Evan Money to in the picture as well.

In the next edition of Dubi meets the fans we were at MECW’s final show of the year on December 4th.

You can catch me at MMWA-SICW this Saturday to be a part of Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans. Please join me for a great night of wrestling.

4 States, 14 Shows, 4,265 miles and 74 hours on the road in 3 months at MWR.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 26, 2010

With a plethora of great shows  these  past few months,  it has been hard to keep up with all the exciting  news flash, photos and happenings around the Midwest.

MWR has been active with some of the top stars in the country while meeting many of you the great fans, some for the first time while others we know quite well.

We have spent almost every weekend on the road covering the top promotions in the Midwest.

Let’s take a look at some of the sights of the past few months with MWR, the Fans and Superstars around the Midwest.

August 7- Granite City Illinois- High Voltage Wrestling

HVW returned from their summer break to with top stars Kahagas taking on Trent Stone , the Midwest Sweet heart Santana G going up against her arch rival Amy Hennig and the Great Cheyenne with MsChif watching.

Dan Walsh (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Would it be just by chance that the MWR Wrestler of the Week was MTV’S Dan Walsh who would give away a MWR T-Shirt in August only to see him get the HVW Livewire title soon after? Hey Dan we are just playing, you earned it….with a handful of Trent Stones tights.

August 21 – Council Bluffs Iowa – Pro Wrestling Phoenix

The trips to Iowa seem to take so long to get their, which has been a reason for us to scale back from going to PWP and 3XW. One problem they are so GOOD!! MWR fans don’t worry we have no plans what so ever to stop covering these two exciting promotions.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix delivered on this evening with some exciting wrestling action. We were on hand when Axel Greece assists Ryan Slade and Zac James cheat Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket out of the PWP Tag Titles. The show also saw the war rage on between Abu Colossus and Preston Maxwell.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix Champion Tony Cortez (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

The MWR Wrestler of the Night was the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez was able to survive the onslaught on Jayden Draigo to retain the championship in a feud that has become quite personal.

In the near future look for a phot recap from their last show in October  from PWP/MWR Photographer Gary Giaffoglione

August 28- Lincoln Illinois – Pro Wrestling Epic

The Balloon festival in Lincoln Illionis is a BIG deal and with PWE providing a FREE show if you attend you can not miss it.

PWE delivered with the biggest match in years in the Midwest literally when the PWE title was on the line between the Mississippi Madman taking on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick led by MR Late Nite.

Ohhhs and AHHHS were heard as the two behemoths battle for supermecy and who is truly the top big man. Nothing was settled decisively, but the crowd went home to tell their friends about the Madman and Future. The match that shook the Midwest .

Evan Money explodes on Eric Allen (Photo credit Brian Kelley)

“The Kid” Evan Money was the MWR Wrestler of the Week as he went on to defeat Eric Allen with a frog splash.

September 4th – Kansas City Kansas- Metro Pro Wrestling

We were thrilled to support Metro Pro Wrestling for several reasons; first off the wrestling scene in the KC market has been dry for some time now. With Metro Pro Sports having TV, showcasing several of the top stars in the country today and oh yeah our former partner in crime Josh Ray is the current ring announcer for this upstart promotion. Metro Pro proved to be a great time with a great upside going into 2010.

September 11 – Waterloo Illinois – Independent Hardcore Wrestling

IHW has been on a roll in 2010 with some great matches in front of a packed crowd. On this night we were thrilled to debut the Tony Kozina MWR Trading Card. Kozina is one of the most well diverse and exciting wrestlers today. During the night Kozina wrestled one of the Midwest most impressive young men in the game Chris L.O.G.A.N

Let’s take a look at a Video recap of this great show from IHW

September 22- Olney Illinois – IWA Unlimited

Our first trip to Olney lived up to the hype that has been told to me. A weekly FREE Wednesday show how can you go wrong. A great small venue filled with some of the top young talent in the area.

IWA Unlimited fan favorite The Intimidator gives away a free MWR T-shirt to start the night off. (Photo Credit Tim Dunahee )

Everyone that I talked to loved the stars of IWA U and looked forward to the hump day of the week. If you have the day off and live in STL I urge you to take the drive to see what you are missing.

September 25 – Hillsdale Missouri- MMWA-SICW

A great day for the community of Hillsdale as MMWA-SICW teamed up with the Hillsdale Police force to provide a free wrestling show. MMWA-SICW are always fan friendly and if a free outdoor show was not enough, the team work also offered free BBQ and back packs filled with treats from the police force given to them by the stars of MMWA-SICW.

Ace Hawkins is the MMWA-SICW Santa Clause in September while sporting the MWR T-shirt

The MWR Wrestler of the day was none other than Ace Hawkins. Ace fresh off of his appearance at Ring of Honor not only gave away a free MWR shirt but bicycles from the kids and some awesome ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame shirts before having a great match against Brandon Espinosa.

September 25- Wood River Illinois – MECW Double shot evening

One of the best kept secrets in the Midwest, is the fact that some of the best talent in Iowa makes the long trip to the STL to go to prove that they are among the best in the Midwest. Jimmy Rockwell, Devin Carter, Zach Thompson, Ryan Slade  and even self proclaimed  wrestling genius Chad Mylan has put an end to Gabriel Brimstones stranglehold  in the Independent title when his man Kwong won the belt in recent months.

Iowa is not the only area that is well represented as the upstate Illinois wrestlers BroMance (Knight Wagner and Jordan McEntrye)  with Erin currently holds onto the MECW Tag Championship and Matt Mayday, Mike Anthony and Chris Logan have all brought their own flavor in the company.

MECW Champion Bailey Mannix (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

On this night the MWR Wrestler of the Night was the champ himself, Bailey Mannix. Mannix is still one of the most underrated wrestlers in the game today.

October 2- Kansas City Kansas – Metro Pro Wrestling

Metro Pro Wrestling heated up with the brand new Metro Pro Wrestling TV Champion Trevor Murdoch taking charge. With an appearance from wrestling great Harley Race the fans where able to see some of the great from the past mixed in with some of the best today.

What has the best Wrestler on Gods Green earth Harley Race along with Ethan Wright and Jeff Strong so mad, could it be because of something that former MWR Josh Ray is doing? See it on METRO SPORTS in Kansas City (Photo Credit Bill Smith )

If fans in Kansas City want the best bang for their buck they need to give Metro Pro Wrestling a chance. You won’t regret it.

October 9- Eldon Missouri – World League Wrestling

One of the biggest nights of the year brought several of the most influential men in the game today. Co-Owner of Pro Wrestling Noah was in attendance along with Harley Race and Cauliflower Alley Club’s Karl Lauer. The MWR Wrestler of the Night was Midwest knockout Lucy Mendez who gave away the very first MWR pink t-shirt.

Wrestlers from around the world took the week long camp in hopes of making it to the show.

October 10- Marceline Missouri – Modern Championship Wrestling

Just down the road from my house was a new promotion was a rare Sunday show that featured local favorite The Iceman. Brian Blade won the belt at the very first show and has been a thorn in promoter Dustin Watson’s side ever since.

October 16- Glen Carbon Illinois – NWA Dynamo/High Voltage Wrestling

We were on hand to present the High Voltage Wrestling tag champs the Hooligans the 2009 MWR Tag team of the Year plaques. To be honest we offered the exciting tag team Full Contact Dojo  (Jonathan Gresham and Ric King) the chance to be the MWR Wrestlers of the Week to throw out a t-shirt as a way of being nice.

In a shocking development they defeated The Hooligans to become the NEW HVW Tag Championship . No HVW Champion was safe as “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt defeated Kahagas and Dan Walsh won the HVW Livewire belt.

Look for a photo recap as well and interviews with all of the new HVW Champions here at MWR in the future.

October 23 – Springfield Illinois – New Midwest Wrestling

NMW invited us and invited us and I am glad that they did, we had debut once before and was very impressed and happy to have added them in our NMW Coverage area. The last show I photographed the most dangerous ( and fun matches) to be a photographer at in my carrer during the4 team NMW Tag Team scramble match and returned for the biggest Battle Royal, rumble style of the year for NMW. All for the enjoyment of you the fans.

The MWR Wrestler of the Week was up and comer Christian Rose. Look for more information about this exciting night of wrestling at MWR soon.

There you have MWR fans, the itinerary of where Dubray and I have been in just the past tthree months. We may not be able to keep up with the miles that the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling does but who can, that man is a machine.

I would like to thank you the fans, the wrestlers, and the promoters for making

Missouri Wrestling Revival – The Wrestling Press of the Midwest.

Metro East Championship Wrestling Photo recap from Wood River, IL on 9/25

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 12, 2010

By Brian Kelley

Last Month we made our way back to MECW in Wood river Illinois for a great night of wrestling. A fun filled card with two men that has to be mentioned as MWR Wrestlers of the Year for 2010 Bailey Mannix and Eric Allen. These two have been friends at times but the desire to be the MECW Championship has been too much for them to maintain the good feelings in the ring.

One of the most entertaining duo in the game is the MECW Tag Team Champions Jordan McEntrye & Knight Wagner otherwise known as Bromance. Led by the vixen Eryn they look to hold onto the titles for a long time. Their biggest test to date is the Bowery Brawlers , consisting of Maddog McDowell and Mauler McDarby. Can Bromance keep this young team at bay?

For the first time I was on hand to see the new MECW Independent Champion Ricky Kwong led by his manager Chad Mylan. Mylan has been a handful at 3XW in Iowa and the drive all the way to Illinois has not calmed the eccentric manager. Can former champion Gabriel Brimstone or fan favorite Jimmy Rockwell spoil Mylan’s plans to take over MECW?

Chris L.O.G.A.N has been very impressive in his short time at the MWR coverage area, taking on the likes of Mannix and Tony Kozina. He is able to over power you and punish you with multiple suplexs. Look for big things to come from this man.

Sarin Sinn brought in some muscle from Chicago with the debut of Mike Anthony. What will the veteran Anthony have in mind for his future at MECW?

.
Can the Youth sensation Evan Money rebound after coming up short last month in his bid for the MECW Title?

This and much more is why you should check out MECW in WoodRiver on October 23rd.

IWAU, MMWA-SICW and MECW fans catch MWR T-shirts from Midwest Stars.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 1, 2010

Last week was a busy week at MWR as we supported three great wrestling promotions in our coverage area.

First on Wednesday September 22 we traveled for the very first time to Olney Illinois to check out IWA Unlimited. IWAU provides the fans of Olney a FREE weekly show  each Wednesday at the Knights of Columbus filled with some of the top young talent in Illinois.

IWAU fan favorite The Intimidator came to the ring with the MWR shirt letting their fans know that we were in the house. He stated that he would give the shirt to the loudest fan but when it was hard to determine the loudest fan he closed his eyes and tuned around and threw the shirt to. IWAU Fan Jennifer I asked Jennifer who was her favorite wrestler and was not shy at all when she stated “Homicidal” Steven Davis. The Intimidator and Davis were kind enough to pose with Jennifer and her family in the ring.

Three days later on Saturday September 25th we returned to the reigning MWR Promotion of the year MMWA-SICW as they continued their fine tradition of working with the community as they teamed up with the Hillsdale Police department to provide a free outdoor show.

When I arrived I found my good friend Herb Simmons, Tim Miller and Keith Miller preparing for an exciting day of wrestling.

Not only was the fans able to watch a great wrestling show the MMWA-SICW, the Police department and the Mayor of Hillsdale offered free hotdogs, soda, and backpacks for the children.

One of the Midwest hottest young stars Ace Hawkins had a great day giving away free bicycles, backpacks, Wrestling at the Chase t-shirts and was kind enough to wear a MWR T-shirt to the ring before his match with The Mauler. Bernard Shaw JR was the lucky fan who caught the shirt from the man who debuted in ROH earlier this year.

In the house were WWE Hall of Famer and father of current WWE Champion Randy Orton, Cowboy Bob Orton.

Orton stated that was thrilled that he was happy that the community had came out, and in action were two of the greats The Gorgeous One” Gary Jackson and Ron Powers in St Louis were in action today.

Later that night, we made our way back to MECW in Wood River Illinois for a fun filled night of wrestling. MR K was absent for the night so fan favorite Shawn Santel had the honors or the stress of trying to keep Eric Allen, Chris L.O.G.A.N and Lovely Leon in check as they were up to no good all night long.

A week prior to Bailey Mannix big tag team match with partner Christopher Daniels at Windy City Pro Wrestling at Toyota Park in Chicago we were fortunate to have Mannix wear out MWR shirt to the ring and throw it out to Jesse Guffey who had came with a couple of his friends for a fun filled night.

I would like to thank each of the three promotions for their hospitality and the wrestlers that took the time to spread the word of MWR to the fans of the Midwest.

Dubi meets the IHW Fans September 11th

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 20, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Good day my wrestling fans, on September 11th we returned to Independent Hardcore Wrestling and for the first time we got to see them in Waterloo Illinois for “The Battle of Waterloo”.

On this weekend was my son Tyler’s 11th birthday so Brian offered to take him and his best friend Nick out for wrestling. This would be Nick’s first wrestling event so the boys were exciting about checking out the show.

The crowd was huge and the fans were really having a good time and it came to no surprise to me that the IHW Champion Brandon Aarons was one of the most request wrestlers for this edition of Dubi Meets the Fans.

Wesley Rodell and Justin Campbell with Brandon Aarons

I caught up with Wesley Roedl and Justin Campbell who were excited to have their pictures with Aarons. Justin has already snagged the trademark Aarons glasses at the merchandise table. My daughter Cheyenne loves those glasses and bought her one to have as well when we brought her last.

Up next was Hardcore fan favorite Mephisto who was chosen by Brandon Van Dever from Cahokia, Illinois.

Brandon told me that “after wrestling legend Baron Von Raschke, Mephisto was the best.”

We caught up with Aarons once again this time with friends who also picked up themselves a set of the Brandon Aarons player shades.

Michael Quinn and Aden Stein with Brandon Aarons.

Michael Quinn and Aden Steine from Waterloo Illinois were ready to cheer on Aarons as he was set to take on Bailey Mannix in the Main event.

Brandon Obst and Brandon Aarons

Blake Obst had hope to get his picture taken with the youth sensation Evan Money but before we could get it done Money had been jumped from after his match from Eric Allen, Lovely Leon and Bailey Mannix who cost him the win against the Canadian Sean Vincent.

Blake Obst and Cameron Cage

Money was being attended to in the back so Blake was willing to take his picture with the returning Cameron Cage.

I looked around to see who I could choose while we waited for Poo Doo the Cow to come out to have his picture taken with Tyler and Nick.

I saw Shorty Biggs  near and he had just got done signing autographs and took some pictures with his fans.

Shorty Biggs and Dubray Tallman

St Louis loves them some Shorty and so do I.

Aaron Brigance was lucky to have his picture taken with the Tony Kozina and I got so busy that I forgot to get one taken with the superstar.

Kozina was also the IHW wrestler who wore the MWR shirt prior to his match to throw to one lucky fan.

Tyler Tallman with Poo Doo and his cowgirl along with Nick Bowne

Tyler and Nick quickly let me know when Poo Doo came out from the back and he was joined with him a cowgirl The boys favorite match did turn out to be his with Dash Rando and they were elated to get their picture taken with the popular IHW Star.

Tony Kozina had an amazing match with Chris Logan that saw chairs and tables involved throughout the match.

Sam Bazzell and Tony Kozina

Prior to his match Sam Bazzell caught the shirt and Tony came out prior to the main event to take a picture with young Sam

The night of wrestling turned out to be a lot of fun and on a personal note we would like to thank everyone at IHW for making Tylers birthday a night that he will always remember.

I hope to see you at a show real soon my friends and feel free to come out to say that you want to be part of Dubi meets the fans and we will do our best to get you a chance to meet your favorite wrestler.
