“The Serial Thriller” Shane Rich becomes a three time AAPW Champion.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 13, 2010

The AAPW Champion, "The Serial Thriller" Shane Rich

He’s back!!!! The former All American Wrestling champion Shane Rich fresh of his appearance on WWE Raw made his return this past weekend stunning the 200 plus AAPW Fans by making his presence known by interfering in the brutal Edmund “Livewire” McGuire and Chris Thomas Falls count anywhere match by hitting his former friend McGuire in the head with a chair allowing Thomas to take home the upset win.

Later in the evening “his attorneys got him out of his 90 day suspension early and AAPW had to give him a title match with the Mississipi Madman and Jeremy Wyatt or risk legal ramifications. Rich would seize the opportunity when Jeremy  Wyatt knocked the Mississipi Madman out with his own belt…Rich knocked Wyatt outta the ring and made the cover to become the first ever three time AAPW Champion.

AAPW is red hot in 2010 and will returns close to St Louis this coming Saturday in Mascoutah Illinois.

All American Pro Wrestling Feb 27th AAPW Heavyweight Champ Mississippi Madman vs. Jermey Wyatt recap by Mike Van Hoogstraat.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 31, 2010

By Brian Kelley

A trip to AAPW is always guaranteed to be a good time. Add on a match of the Year canadite in the AAPW Champion the Mississippi Madman and taking on “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt you knew I could not miss it.

A great day of hanging with my girlfriend Dubray, who did “Dubi Meets the AAPW Fans” (if you missed it then click here,MWR Photographer extrordinar Mike Van Hoogstraat and my good friend Jonathan Jones. Later in the night we caught up with Adam Testa to watch some exciting wrestling action.

On the night we saw a feud heat up when Badboy Chris Thomas and his manager Brooklyn Bobby left former AAPW Champion Edmund “Livewire” McGuire laying that would lead to a falls Count anywhere match in Herrin Illinois on April 10th.

In the main event we saw two warriors go at it as Wyatt came within moments of becoming the AAPW Champion for the first time. The fans were still furious at Wyatt’s actions and wanted more. AAPW as always gives the fans what they want and in the Main event in Herrin Illinois it will be The Mississippi Madman vs. Jeremy Wyatt 2.

Also on the card will be former WWE/ECW Superstar Simon Dean/ Nova going one on one with recently released WWE’s Paul Burchill.

This and much more will be why you will not want to miss AAPW on April 10th.

Till then sit back and enjoy the AAPW Photo recap by Mike Van Hoogstraat.

MWR Spotlight: “Homicidal” Steven Davis

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 31, 2008

Homicidal Steven Davis

"Homicidal" Steven Davis

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

Steven Davis is the John Wayne of the Missouri Wrestling Revival coverage area. He is a man that commands respect with his actions and not with his words. Davis lives up to his nickname “Homicidal”, as he terrorizes fan favorites such as Chocolate Thunder and “Serial Thriller” Shane Rich.

Trained by the late Bud Chaplin, Davis is a ten year veteran of the sport. He has the skills and tenacity to work with all types of wrestling from old school, new school, technical, brawling and highflying. His matches in All American Pro Wrestling with Rich are sure to be make them a candidate for feud of the year in 2008.

When I first saw Davis live in action this year, it was in Chester, IL. He was trying to regain the AAPW wrestling championship from Rich. He had the crowd upset throughout the whole match. The fans booed Davis and then booed him some more, but he would not be denied and once again regained the title in a stellar match.

When I left the building that night, I knew down the road I wanted to not only see this guy more in action, but also wanted to do my best to let others know of the talent that he possesses. I can hype the guy with words and my opinions but more telling is what his peers have to say about them.

Edmund “Livewire” McGuire, who was trained by Davis said in an interview earlier this year at MWR, “I am grateful for all of the knowledge and time these (Davis and Donnie Sixx) gentlemen put into training me and molding me into who I am today.”

Promoter Sean Chambers said, “Steven Davis can hang with any one; he has the ability to make almost anyone look good.”

George the Animal the 3rd added, “I have known Steven Davis for the past 7 years and he is one of the top guys that I have worked with in my 16 years in and out of the ring. He commands respect wherever he goes. Davis puts everything into the matches that he is a part of. He is a rare commodity in the fact that he knows what he is doing and makes others look good.”

Davis is currently working with IWA Productions as a instructor. Every Wednesday at 7 P.M. in Olney, IL you can check out a free wrestling show that has a full mix of seasoned veterans working with the future of Pro wrestling. The owner of IWA Productions John Bach stated that he is blessed to have Davis as a part of the company. Bach also added that Davis is a true asset to not only the company but to the Independent scene in the Midwest.

In the sport of wrestling, you are sometimes expected to bring the best out of your opponent. tThere are very few that understand this and even less that are able to achieve it, but Davis is one of the few that understands and executes well, day in and day out. He is a leader in the locker room, a main event wrestler and one of the most respected men in the Midwest.

You can see Homicidal” Steven Davis and “Bad Boy” Chris Thomas square off against The Money Makin’ Jam Boys (K.C. Jackson & Mississippi Madman at All American Pro Wrestling, November 15, 2008 in West Frankfort, IL.

For more information check out http://www.allamericanprowrestling.com/

You can train with Steven Davis at IWA Productions by contacting John Bach at (618) 843-4588.  Every Wednesday at 7:00 PM IWA promotes a free wrestling card with the instructors and students getting in ring for some on-the-job experience. The show is at 531 South Whittle Ave, Olney, IL 62540.
