MMWA-SICW July 11 recap, part two

Posted by reimaginejournalism on August 2, 2009

By Kari Williams

As the second show of the night for the MMWA wrestlers, some of them pulled double duty to please the fans at South Broadway Athletic Club. Depsite the show starting late due to the earlier show in Dupo, the wrestlers delivered exactly what the fans wanted to see, with a few surprise returns mixed in.

Heavyweight Champion Gary Jackson and his arch-rival Shaft, with Travis Cook, clashed in the main event. Shaft took the coward’s way out on this exchange, attacking Jackson from behind to start the match. His dastardly antics continued, as Cook interfered, giving Shaft the distinct advantage.

The war made its way to the outside for the second time, and Jackson got his revenge and took over.

The champion looked poised for victory, and the Connection must have sensed this, because Junior Heavyweight Champion Dave Vaughn ran into the ring and attacked Jackson while Cook distracted the referee. All hell broke loose, as Phil E. Blunt, Cook and Shaft assaulted Jackson.

Just when it looked like nobody would come to Jackson’s aid, Commissioner Keith Smith ran from the announcer’s table to do some damage. Even MMWA Promoter Tony Casta got in the mix, as he delivered an old school flying headscissors to Shaft.

Fan favorites Johnny Courageous and A.J. Williams put on, arguably, the best match of the night prior to the main event. Courageous tried to eliminate Williams’ key moves by viciously attacking both the arm and the leg.

Not one to be deterred, Williams fought with everything he had, even going so far as to attempt a moonsault within the first five minutes.

These two men took each other to the limit. Despite Courageous trying to remove the possibility of the superkick from Willilams’ arsenal, Williams continued to put Courageous to the test. The match ended in controversy, as both men had the other’s pinned to the mat.

Blade wrestled Vaughn, accompanied Travis Cook, in a non-title match. Blade controlled the better part of the bout, but that is not to say that Vaughn was overmatched. After Blade connected with an elbow drop from the top rope, Cook began to look worried.

Vaughn may have felt that his title could be in jeopardy in the future, if Blade were to win the match—and that lit a fire under Vaughn, who maintained the lead from the momet he connected with a belly to belly suplex.

However, the fans distracted Vaughn, if only for a moment, which almost caused Blade to get the quick win. Vaughn rapidly regained focus and defeated Blade with the spear in just under 10 minutes.

Destiny Diamond had the chance to make up for her shortcomings against Alexis in Dupo, as the two went at it again, with the belt on the line. Alexis started the match off with the early advantage, but Diamond quickly took over, using nearly every illegal tactic possible. From this point on, both women worked hard to either maintain or regain control. Alexis refused to let her belt slip away, and Diamond wanted nothing more than to finally earn the belt. Diamond pulled out a win in 7:21 with a tornado DDT. After the match, Alexis appeared to have injured her neck. She was helped to the locker room.

A battle royal took place, featuring Vaughn, Shaft, Williams, Blade, Courageous, Jaysin Static and Core. Bodies flew in every direction, and eliminations occurred at a rapid pace, with Core and Static simultaneously taking each other out, as was the same for Courageous and Williams. Shaft and Blade were eliminated next, respectively, leaving Vaughn as the sole winner.

Static and Core wrestled for the second time this night in the opening contest. Fans distracted Core from the get go, causing Static to try and steal a quick victory. In this back and forth battle, the two went in and out of the ring. In one of the pivotal moments, Static prepared to launch onto Core, who stood on the outside of the ring, but Core saw Static coming and got him caught up in the ropes. That one misstep by Static allowed Core to take the advantage. But Static’s resiliency forced him to continue, and he pinned Core, gaining retribution for his earlier loss.

MMWA-SICW July 11 recap, part one

Posted by reimaginejournalism on July 31, 2009

By Kari Williams

MMWA-SICW put on a free show for its fans at the Dupo Fairgrounds in Dupo, IL prior to the event at South Broadway Athletic Club later that evening. The show began later than expected due to a rain delay and had only five matches because of time restrictions, but still gave fans the entertainment they desired.

Heavyweight Champion Gary Jackson battled a formidable opponent in A.J. Williams, who appears to be looking for a Heavyweight Title reign in the near future. As two fan favorites, Williams and Jackson put on one of the best, most competitive matches of the night. Neither man appeared to gain a clear advantage, depsite their efforts. However, Williams did have Jackson on edge throughout the bout, which allowed Williams to gain mulitple near falls. Each time Williams tried to take control, Jackson used his pure athletic skill to put a stop to Williams. The champion soundly defeated Williams with the Texas Cloverleaf to retain his title after Williams delivered two consecutive elbow drops but could not capitalize.

Bobby D took on the Big Texan in a physical contest. Texan attacked D from the get go, and barely gave him a chance to get out of the box, so to speak. Nonetheless, the one miniscule opportunity D had, he took full advantage of, using any tactics he could. Nothing D did could stop the bigger man, and when Texan caught D with a double-underhook suplex, the end became clear. In nearly 10 and a half minutes, Texan caught D in on the second rope and chokeslammed him to the mat for the win.

Blade had his hands full against Connection Member Shaft, who, conspicuously, was not accompanied by Travis Cook. Using his dastardly ways, Shaft attacked Blade from behind to gain the unfair advantage. However, neither man controlled the match for an extended period. Shaft’s evil ways kept Blade at bay and gave the Connection’s newest member a distinct disadvantage. Just over 10 minutes into the one-sided affair, Shaft stole the victory with a roll up where he had the tights.

Women’s Champion Alexis defended her title against her archnemesis Destiny Diamond, who has tried for the last few months to win the title. Diamond’s skill increases each time she steps in the ring, and this bout was no exception, as she easily dominated the champion. Not using any flashy moves, Diamond controlled the match, but one false move sent Diamond to the wayside and allowed Alexis to take over. Alexis wore down Diamond in a short amount of time, then pinned her after a TKO to retain the belt.

In the opening contest, The Exciting Jaysin Static and Core went at it. With the crowd firmly behind Static, he had a pyschological lead going in. It seemed as though that also worked in Core’s favor, as it gave him more motivation to defeat Static. The two battled in and out of the ring, and Core did everything he could—legally and illegally—to ensure the outcome of the bout. At 8:47, Core had wounded the exciting one enough to get the pin.

Keep checking Missouri Wrestling Revival for the details of the show at South Broadway Athletic Club, which immediately followed this show.
