In June of 2010, Danny Boy and current CWC Champion Ron Powers were the best of friends. The two were a force to reckon with. That all changed at the first of the year when Powers brutally attacked Danny Boy in a moment that we will never forget. (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

SICW Wrestling Explosion welcomes back Danny Boy for a night of meet and greet.

Danny Boy who left the ring as a worker a year ago after losing the CWC title to Ron Powers, in what some say was one of the worst double cross from an individual that they had ever seen.

Click here for a full recap from MWR from this horrific event appropriately named Ron Powers goes berserk !!!.

Ricky Cruz has entertained fans throughout Mexico and in the top 2 companies in Puerto Rico plus many independent companies in the island. Word came to MWR in 2011 that he was one to watch out for and Cruz has lived up to the hype. Yet, can even a wrestler of Cruz’s caliber slow down Ron Powers? (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Powers turned on Danny Boy has been running rough shot ever since winning the title, and recently has been called out by the fan favorite Ricky Cruz.

Powers and Cruz have been battling in and out of the ring, and recently had one of the bloodiest matches in the history of the MMWA-SICW.

On Next Saturday, February 18th Cruz gets another shot at Powers. The CWC title will be on the line and Cruz having pledged to make Powers pay for all that he has done. And on hand to witness this battle will be the former CWC title holder Danny Boy.

Danny will be in the house at the East Carondelet Community signing autographs and visiting with his fans.

Also on the card an old Saint Louis Wrestle Royal will round out the evening of action.

Ron Powers shoots on the MWR,the Midwest and promoter Herb Simmons.

Wow, whomever wrote this has a big misunderstanding of what I am about.

Has anyone from this site  ever interview me about any of this?

I’ll answer that…..NO! You people interview the fans, the promotors, and all the guys in the locker room, who all have tall aspirations of going to the big show. This is usually followed by a handshake or a hug. Do you want to know the truth? Like Jack said,”You can’t handle the truth”. The truth is, this was, at one time, the most brutal profession to be in. The toll it would take on your body and mind was unimagineable. Keeping injuries a secret, keeping your head on a swivel, and the lack of trust with the bookers and talent, usually, was a day to day thing.

I was, as Terry Taylor described, “wrestlings best kept secret”.

World Championship Wrestling, World Wrestling Federation, and numerous companies in Japan, all wanted me on their roster. I brought Lex (Luger)to the point of collapsing after a match at a house show. The phone would not stop ringing. I knocked out the “Great Muta” in Japan. After that tour, I almost had to change my phone number. However, I had the ability to do, what alot of wrestlers couldn’t do, say NO. I was married with kids and had a great job. I knew I couldn’t keep both sides happy, so I chose family. I would work spots for all of them periodically, but if you don’t sell your soul to Them, you were just a drone. This is where I was different. I wouldn’t sell out. Bruiser Brody always told me to take what I want, and leave be, what I don’t. I’ve followed that advice since 1987.

Photobucket

Gary Jackson is no light weight himself but here he struggles from the strength of Ron Powers * Photo Credit Brian Kelley*

I might have aged, I might be 15Lbs heavier than when I retired in 2004, but I can still do my job better than anyone else, today. You see what I want to show you. You hear what I want to tell you. I have the ability to beat you in your mind, before we even lock up. When I face another man across that ring, I don’t see nervousness or excitement. I see fear in his eyes. I see him contemplate about finding another profession. I see his family look away. I can watch every match, at every show, and tell you who has potential, at a glance.

I look at your “trading card” list, and I see a few challenges, but not many. B.G. James, Mike Sydal, Sean Vincent, Mark Sterling, and Trevor Murdoch to name a few. However, back in WLW, I beat Trevor’s ass so bad, I guess he changed his name. Alot of the guys on the list, I’ve never heard of. I wont judge. As far as the rest of them, its like being really good at whiffleball, and trying to play pro baseball. You won’t make it past the first pitch.

Herb, I’m throwing a no hitter as your “Classic Heavyweight Wrestling Champion“. I know you are starting to get a little nervous about the amount of money your spending trying to knock me off. It will not happen. You brought in Danny Boy, Bob Orton, Dory Funk, and now Ted Dibiase, all to try to take me out. The only thing your doing, is turning the SICW into a grave yard. Vincent and I are just getting warmed up.

Ron Powers has shown no mercy for any of the top stars that promoter Herb Simmons has put in front of him. Here Powers works the leg of Chaz Wesson. * Photo Credit Brian Kelley*

Keep sending bodies, and I’ll change my wrestling name to Kavorkian.

Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans February 2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 27, 2011

By Dubray Tallman

Hello everyone, an exciting night for me personally as our good friend promoter Herb Simmons asked for me to present Danny Boy Hawkins with a trophy. The trophy was in honor of his accomplishment of winning the Classic Wrestling Champion tournament last month at the very same building by defeating Waco, The Big Texan and followed it up with a win in the finals over “Thee” Brandon Espinosa.

I was nervous as this was to be aired on Channel 8 in St Louis so I didn’t want to mess up and make Danny Boy look bad. In all I was happy with the way it turned out as things was going great until Ron Powers went off his rocker and attacked his good friend Danny Boy.

You can find out the details by clicking here.

The MWR wrestler of the night was one of our favorite young men in the game today high flying A big thank you to Ace Hawkins for throwing out an MWR shirt prior to overcoming the odds and defeating the much bigger Waco during the night.

After his match Ace came out to meet the fan Gavin who was from Waterloo Illinois there in the front row with his family.

Danny Boy had a huge fan base at MMWA-SICW and prior to his good friend Ron Powers stabbed him in the back several of the fans took the chance to get their picture taken with the champ.

Photobucket

First we had Donovan who was at the matches for the very first time!

Photobucket

Dominic’s dad was a special guest for the show and had remembered us at WLW in 2010 when Brian had covered them. It was great meeting them and Dominic was so excited about having his photo while holding the belt with the Champ.

Photobucket

Christian, Kayla, Paige, and Allison was up next , this was Allison’s second time coming and she just loves Danny Boy so I was happy to get the two together along with Allison’s friends.

Photobucket

Brett & Eli Gummersheimer had their photo taken with Dave Vaughn last time but the photo did not turn out so this time they got to pose with “The Icon” Chris Hargas.

Photobucket

Last but not least I was going to pick a wrestler, when I saw that Brian was speaking to Jaysin Static questioning his actions in the ring earlier in the night against his opponent Max Archer when I got my good friend Mike Van to capture the young star putting the MWR Owner in a headlock.

I would like to thank MMWA-SICW for their friendship and support of myself and MWR as we get to meet such wonderful fans while checking out some great wrestling action.

Till next time.

2010 Missouri Wrestling Revival Award winners

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 27, 2011

What a great year 2010 was for pro wrestling in the Midwest. Shows throughout the Midwest showed a steady growth in an economy that is struggling.

The biggest companies in the World, WWE and TNA both had pay per views in the Midwest. Fans were able to meet the stars at TNA’S fan fest. The ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame honored Dory Funk JR, Bobby the Brain Heenan and Baron von Raschke with their inductions to the hall of fame during the celebration.

Wrestling returned to Kansas City in a big way when Metro Pro Wrestling debut at the historic Memorial Hall with special guest Tommy Dreamer and a TV deal on Metro Sports. Led by former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdock, the Metro roster has to step up their game if they are to be the best if they are to stand out of the 3 time WWE Tag Team Champions shadow.

We were happy to add New Midwest Wrestling to our coverage area.At MWR we have seen some of the NMW talents in past in Dan the Man and Ryan Phoenix but we quickly saw that Bobby Houston, Eric Logan and NMW Champion Jonathan Magnus are just a few that are worthy of seeing in action as well.

Once again we were able to enjoy another great PWE show at the Lincoln Balloon Festival. PWE later in the year saw Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck go up against the fun lovin former WWE Star U-Gene and the Mississippi Madman.

We were able to see PWP get out of the grasp of the Murder Militia in a classic War Games match while on the other side of the state 3XWrestling continued their standard of providing the fans with great wrestling and an up and close look at their great website including the monthly Outside the Ring program.

In ST Louis MMWA-SICW was the 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year, but they did not rest on their laurels. They continued to train young wrestlers while bringing in some of the very best in Mark Sterling and Mike Sydal, fans where also  thrilled to see old favorites return like Danny Boy and Ron Powers.

AAPW had one of the very best feuds in the Midwest with Shane Rich turning his back on his good friend Edmund “Livewire” McGuire.

NWA Dynamo has brought back some of the GCW flavor and packed the house in a great show in the summer with Pete Madden and Mike Sharona going to war with Nikki Strychnine and Makaze in the main event.

HVW had a slow year but was proud to boast that HVW Original Santana G had made her way to Florida with a great opportunity to valet on Spike TV for TNA with Orlando Jordan.

World League Wrestling is primed to be at their very best with the young talent training at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy. Don’t be surprised to see the talents of Jason Jones, the Cancun Kid, Lucy Mendez, Jack Gamble, Brian Breaker and Ethan Wright hold titles throughout the Midwest and beyond in the near future.

IHW proved that they were one of the best with entertaining shows that grew more and more fans each time. Brandon Aarons has turned into the one of the biggest fan favorites in all of the Midwest. Eric Allen and Sean Vincent would test the skills of the rising young star.

MECW mixed hometown flavor with a dose of Windy City Wrestling, including former WWE Star Mike Anthony and the one and only Bailey Mannix along with teen heart throb Evan Money.

IWA Unlimited provided the fans of Olney Illinois with free wrestling each Wednesday. High flying and hard hitting action gave the wrestlers a chance to improve their skills in a great environment.

IWA Productions packed the house with special guest The Honky Tonk Man but it was the local fans that stole the show when Christian Rose and Danny Cannon tore the roof off the place.

NWA Supreme shows may not have that many shows but the ones they did have where filled with some of the best stars locally and nationally.

MWR wrestlers have been active working to get to the top. Mike Sydal was announced as the 2009 PWI Rookie of the year while Midwest stars Mark Sterling, Ace Hawkins, Brandon Espinosa all made appearances with Ring of Honor.

The fans and friends of Barry Ryte showed their support for their guy after he was diagnosed with cancer causing him to back out of the 2010 ECWA Super 8 tournament. Barry has shown in the ring that he has the heart of a champion, and that fighting spirit has helped him It has been announced that he has been cleared to wrestle in 2011. If we had an inspirational wrestler of the Year he would have won hands down.

Fans were blessed to have the Champion of the World Tyler Black make their way to their hometown as Tyler Black met Jeremy Wyatt at 3Xwrestling in Des Moines Iowa, while in Illinois Black went one on one with Brandon Aarons.

This fall word got out that the Future Donovan Ruddick had made his way to Florida with a developmental contract for WWE. He joined the before mentioned Black who has since lost his title to Roderick Strong but we all know the best is yet to come for Tyler Black.

I hope that you have enjoyed the coverage of all of your favorite promotions. It is with the hard work of Dubray Tallman, Mike Van Hoogstraat, Bill Smith, Gary Giaffoglione, Matt Murphy, Greg Anthony , Dartallion Allen, Mark Campos, Josh Ray and Rob Schamberger that makes the site what it is today.

We would like to thank the promoters and wrestlers that support the site for the past three years.

Last but not least thank you so much to the fans of pro wrestling in the Midwest. Take the time to see a wrestler before they become the next Superstar.

On January first we were proud to announce that Mike Chapman was named as the 2010 MWR Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. For more info on Mike Chapman click here.

Now with further ado I give you the 2010 MWR yearly awards.

2010 Wrestler of the Year

Mike Sydal-

The wrestler of the year was a close vote this year as the surge of Mark Sterling coming within votes to be named for the second year in a row for MWR Wrestler of the Year. Meanwhile Donovan Ruddick had a great push thanks to great performances in 2010 against Dave Vaughn, Mephisto, and the Mississippi Madman. Hard work would pay off for Ruddick as the opportunity that many felt was long overdue, came to pass when he was signed to the WWE developmental contract late this fall. Jeremy Wyatt and Trevor Murdock both garnered several votes thanks to what many voters voiced their respect for each of these men. Last but not least just on the outside of the voting range was Brandon Aarrons who and his former tag team partner Brandon Espinosa .

Mike Sydal toured the country in 2010 wrestling in matches each and every week. Promoters loved him, fans cheered him and the country noticed. His hard work and dedication combined with a true desire to improve earned made him the second wrestler that took part in the WLW/Noah camp that won the PWI Rookie of the Year.

Sydal was just getting started, during Wrestlemania weekend he was in California wrestling with Ring of Honor. He would continue wrestling with Ring of Honor training at their training center before making appearances on Direct TV’S HDNET against Tyler Black, Christopher Daniels and more.

In the fall Sydal returned to much fan fare. At Metro Pro Wrestling, Rock and Roll Mike Sydal was once again on TV with Metro Pro Wrestling against the former WWE Tag Team Champion Trevor Murdock.

At 3XW he was involved in one of the most emotional matches of the year when he was force to face “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson. Thompson defeated his High Flyers’ partner Mike Sydal following a Dublin Driver in a very emotional and hard fought Loser Leaves 3XWrestling match set up by 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman in May. Fans rejoiced when Thompson overcame the odds to defeat Brian Ash in November to allow Sydal to once again return.

Throughout the year of 2010 Sydal popped up just about everywhere good wrestling could be found.

Sydal has earned the respect of his peers and promoters and it showed in the 2010 in the final vote. Out of 14 awards committee voters the lowest Sydal got were 16.

We would like to congratulate Mike Sydal as the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

New Midwest Tag Team Champions : Attitude Inc – Spencer Powers, Michael Shard and Guy Smith

Attitude Inc is a flashy tag team that has electrified the ring at New Midwest Wrestling for the past year. All three men are former NMW Heavyweight Champions who have come together and found success. Like the Freebirds, Attitude Inc have mixed partners to their advantages. Their success and talent has won over the awards committee.

At the start of the year they dismantled the faction the Sin Club of Steve Bishop, Dave Parker and Dareian Frost in impressive fashion.

In July the they outlasted the tag teams of Logantyre (Eric Logan and Justin McEntyre) , The New Immolare (Tom Arson and Ryan Phoenix) and the Full Metal Jackals( Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) in an exciting four way match to win the NMW Tag Team titles.

In consecutive months of October and November they defeated the up and coming tag team the Full Metal Jackals (Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) to retain the NMW Tag Team Titles.

Though Attitude Inc has their hands full with the tag team of the Uninvited (Rip Mystic and Tom Arson) heading into 2011, the team can hold their head up high that MWR has named them the 2010 MWR Tag Team of the Year.

2010 MWR Promotion of the Year

3Xwrestling

3XW’s fifth year proved to be the best yet, featuring a mix of incredible wrestling, packed crowds, strong business relationships within the community, and a continuing commitment to charitable efforts.
Despite the common perception that interest in wrestling is on the decline, 3XW enjoyed consistently growing crowds throughout the year, routinely packing the Des Moines Social Club each month for events thanks to a loyal – and growing – following and strong television, radio, print and word-of-mouth advertising, not to mention the most talented roster of wrestlers in the entire Midwest.

This past July, 3XW also had the honor of being the last wrestling promotion to hold matches in historic Veterans Memorial Auditorium, a building with 55 years of wrestling history. The athletes of 3XW competed in the same building that NWA affiliates, particularly Central States, held matches years ago, not to mention some major WWE/WWF/WCW moments.

3XW’s webshow, Outside the Ring, enjoyed an increasing number of views, as did 3XWrestling.com, which was visited by thousands of fans each month.

First Runner up- Independent Hardcore Wrestler
Second Runner up- MMWA-SICW
Third Runner up- Metro Pro Wrestling

2010 MWR Match of the Year

Jeremy Wyatt vs. Tyler Black – 3XW – April 2, 2010

Spring Showdown at 3Xwrestling was a monumental night of pro wrestling featuring one of the top wrestlers in the Midwest proving to the world that he could hang with the Champion of the World.

The two wrestled to a 30-minute time limit draw in an incredible wrestling match that earned a standing ovation from the crowd after the final bell. The last minute of the match saw referee Jeromy Robb inadvertently get crushed in the corner by both men and fall to the canvas. Black quickly nailed Wyatt with a tremendous reverse brainbuster and covered him for the pin, only there was no ref to count the pin. As Black was checking on the ref in the corner, Wyatt slowly rose to his feet and grabbed Black from behind, slamming him hard with his patented Kansas Tumbleweed (Lightning Spiral) and covering him for the pin with 20 seconds remaining, only for the ref to still be out. Wyatt screamed and pleaded for the ref to get up to no avail and he even counted the pin himself. The time then ran out before a winner could be determined but the fans gave a standing ovation.

First Runner up- MECW November 20, 2010 – Bailey Mannix vs. Eric Allen – 30 Minute Ironman Match

Second Runner up- The Mississippi Madman vs. The Future Donovan Ruddick with MR Late Nite at Pro Wrestling Epic August 28th, 2010 Lincoln, Illinois

Third Runner up- Danny Cannon vs Christian Rose ladder match from IWA Productions OCC show in January 2010

Ron Powers

MWR’s pick:

A tournament with some of the best today will go at it full force. Ron Powers comes off a big victory of the Big Texan in December. Dave Vaughn is a marked man after taking out Travis Cook after his match with Espinosa last month, which MWR has heard may have retired the wily leader. How will The Big Texan, Waco and Brandon Espinosa do without the man who lead them to glory in 2010?

We had many sources tell us that Danny Boy could have very of been the best wrestling in St Louis, prior to his announcement to walk away a few years ago. Danny Boy has been impressive and may be the most popular wrestler in the company.

Chris Hargas has the skills and the power to overcome the odds, though he has been hit and miss at matches in the past, can this be the year of Hargas. Last but not least is the man who we can not put our money against, the “Great One” Gary Jackson. Jackson can talk but he ALWAYS backs it up.

Our Pick: Gary Jackson.

Wild Card: Brandon Espinosa- A true Ego Maniac if there ever was one. With or without Cook he is one of the best.

Now it is your turn to pick the man who will become the first ever Classic Wrestling Champion.

Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans in East Carondelet (12-11-10)

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 7, 2011

By Dubray Tallman

Hello All, this is Dubray Tallman with “Dubi Meets the Fans of MMWA-SICW” The house was packed at East Carondelet, Saturday, December 11, 2010.

This was an important night for us as the fine people at MMWA-SICW was honoring the hard work that we do at MWR with a presentation in front of their fans and we finally caught up with Larry Matysik to present him with the 2009 MWR Lifetime Achievement Award .

Also on this exciting night was the best of the best 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling going one on one against the one and only Mike Sydal. This night also featured two grudge matches starting off with a leather strap match showing the wrath of the powerhouse Ron Powers taking on the Big Texan with Gary Jackson as the special referee. Bad blood and respect was on the line in a grueling 2 out of 3 falls match between the former MMWA-SICW Champion Dave Vaughn and Brandon Espinosa led by Vaughn’s ex manager Travis Cook.

I won’t lie as I was nervous as could be heading to the show as this was the first time that I had been to a show without Brian, who was in Granite City, Illinois covering NWA Dynamo/High Voltage Wrestling. I was fortunate to be able to catch a ride with our good friend and MWR photographer Mike Van Hoogstraat and Larry Eddicott to the show.

The nerves would soon be long gone as everyone at MMWA-SICW made me feel very welcomed as they prepared to bring the fans the best show they could to end the year. While they got ready to open the doors I caught up with some good friends along with Larry Matysik who are two great guys.

I had found the MWR Wrestler of the Night in MMWA-SICW fan favorite Danny Boy.

Danny Boy was able to wear the MWR Holiday green and red shirt to the ring prior to his match. Mission accomplished for the MWR wrestler of the night, I found my Santa hats that I was going to give everyone who sat in the front row. I decided to just give them to the children, and they seemed very happy about wearing them. I made the mistake of running out of the  hats and one cute little girl was in tears. Being a mother of three myself I that hit at home and thankfully I was wearing my reindeer antlers and was able to make her happy by giving them to her but I made her promise me that she would wear them.

The first set of fans I met were Devan and Dylan, from East Carondelet and this was the first time they had been to the matches. They were excited about seeing some girls wrestle, and asked for me to choose a wrestler for them. I chose young Chase King for them and King is shown here holding Dylan’s sister Jaelyn.

Marla Bradshaw was super excited to get her picture with Ron Powers, she was all smiles and happy as a lark, she couldn’t wait to get her hands wrapped around this beast of a man.

Marla’s son Cody also wanted to choose a wrestler, so he went with the young high flyer Ace Hawkins.

Prior to Danny Boy’s match with Tony Raze, he threw out the shirt to Sarah Kinkade. Danny Boy would go on to pick up a big win on the hated “Lockdown” Raze.

Look for a full photo recap from Mike Van Hoogstraat in the near future at MWR, and I hope all the fans have had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Till next time, be good and I hope to see you at the shows in 2011.

MMWA-SICW “Old School tag Team Match” 2 out of 3 falls” this Saturday

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 18, 2010

The 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year returns this Saturday October 23rd at 8pm with another all-star wrestling card at the East Carondelet Community Center. Already signed is an “Old School tag Team Match” 2 out of 3 falls featuring the team of Dave Vaughn and Danny Boy battling against Gary Jackson and Brandon Espinsoa.

That is not all, also signed at the request of Travis “the Crook” Cook, is Ron Powers in a handicap match. Travis insisted at the last show that Powers needs to “earn” another shot at any of his men. If Powers can beat any two wrestlers then Travis will consider allowing him another shot at his stable boys.

The tension is building as always in the MMWA-SICW.

MMWA-SICW returns this Saturday in East Carondelet with a Triple Main event

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 13, 2010

MWR fans you will not want to miss out this weekend as MMWA-SICW is back in action with not one, not two but three matches that promises to be a must see.

If you love big men than you will love the match between Ron Powers and The Big Texan. As my friend Herb Simmons said “ This match is shaping up to be the block buster of the year. The Big Texan is ready to do an all war with Powers.” Powers has stated he is ready to leave the Big Man flat on his back in the ring or in the parking lot.

Another heavyweight match pits “The Future” Donovan Ruddick in a rematch with Chris Hargas.Ruddick was furious that Hargas was able to get the pinfall on him in a tag match last year so he demanded that his manager Travis “The Crook” Cook grant him a chance to get his revenge.

Has Hargas derailed Ruddick on his way to the MMWA-SICW Championship?

Last but not least the Champ Dave Vaughn’s title will be in jeopardy when he goes up against fan Favorite Danny Boy. Danny Boy was granted the title shot when he was able to get his hand raise against Gary Jackson via DQ.

Jackson has been very vocal about the outcome and has vowed to get even with Danny Boy.

Can Danny Boy get the title off of Vaughn before that happens?
