Results from PWP‘s Year of the Phoenix VI – NEW PWP CHAMPION!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 9, 2011

Fans, you had to be there to witness an incredible night of action on January 15, 2011 as we kicked off the new year with Year Of The Phoenix 6! Shocking events took place and we will do our best to put it into words for anyone who missed it! The night featured an 8 man tournament in which the PWP Heavyweight Championship was being defended throughout!

At the beginning of the night, all 8 tournament competitors made their way to the ring for a group photo and to announce the tournament brackets. After that, we got underway with the action.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: Matty Star defeated Abu Colossus. You could see the look of pain on Star’s face when it was announced his first round opponent was “The Big Hurt”. This was a phenomenal opening contest with Star doing everything he could to bring the big man down! Star nailed a lionsault off the ropes and caught Colossus off guard just long enough to score the 3 count! Abu shook Matty’s hand after the match.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: Preston Maxwell defeated Derek Cornell. Cornell, one half of the Beautiful Bodies with Brian Gott, had to go at it solo this evening in hopes of winning the tournament. Maxwell wanted nothing to do with Cornell’s antics, and quickly brought him down with the Gator Roll Choke.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal: “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt defeated Zach Thompson. Zach Thompson was on the microphone insulting the fans in that signature irritating voice when Wyatt’s music hit, much to the fans relief. “The Rebel” has been showing a new focus lately, forgetting his former teammates and setting his sights on competing. Thompson showed the fans of PWP a lot in this one, however Wyatt hit a devastating combo, a Superplex then floating over into a Fisherman’s Buster that got him the pinfall win and advancement in the tournament.

*** Tournament Quarterfinal & PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Joey Daniels. Joey Daniels seemed confident coming out, however Cortez took it right to him, holding nothing back. Daniels surprised a lot of people here with a few very close falls and almost became PWP Champion, however in the end the “Icon” of PWP nailed a back-drop driver to retain his coveted title.

*** PWP Tag Team Championship: Zac James & Ryan Slade defeated Jimmy Rockwell & Mad Dog McDowell. Zac & Slade came out and explained their manager Axel Greece couldn’t be there however they would still defend their championship against anyone in the back. Jimmy Rockwell came out but Slade commented how he didn’t have a partner therefore couldn’t compete. Rockwell then brought out a surprise partner, the massive Mad Dog McDowell, and Zac & Slade did not look happy to see him! Mad Dog manhandled the tag champs for a bit until they got the upper hand on Rockwell. Zac, using every opportunity available, grabbed the Canadian flag and attempted to use it. When the referee took it away and set it aside, Zac used the distraction to nail Mad Dog with a low blow then he and Slade hit their Sliced Bread Splash combination finisher to retain their title belts.

*** Tournament Semifinal Match: Matty Star defeated Preston Maxwell. Both of these men could taste the finals so bad that they refused to back down. Maxwell tried to lock his choke hold on to no avail. Star hit his incredible top rope Falcon Arrow maneuver to get the three count and advance to the tournament finals! What happened next was absolutely shocking. Maxwell attacked Matty, then grabbed a pair of steel chairs. He shoved Star’s head inside one chair and slammed the other chair onto it! Maxwell then locked his Gator Roll Choke onto Matty and refused to let go. After 2 referees and a few competitors finally broke the hold, Maxwell went to the back. Star was helped to the back but the situation looked bleak.

*** Tournament Semifinal Match & PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. It’s the first event of 2011 and already we have a match of the year contender! You had to be there to see these guys take it to another level. They have battled before but this time they put it all on the line. Wyatt, a former champion put everything he had into it, but in the end Cortez rolled through on a high cross-body to win the match and advance to the finals!

*** David Clark defeated Branden Juarez. Clark came out for a match however during his entrance was jumped by the man formerly known as Donnie Peppercricket! Now we know he is named Branden Juarez and he claimed he served his suspension and still wasn’t booked, and was therefore “booking himself“! He grabbed a referee and demanded he ring the bell, and proceeded to beat on David Clark. Clark came back strong including a HUGE T-Bone Suplex however Juarez hit the Kryptonite Crunch and pinned David… until he pulled him up. Juarez delivered more punishment and set up another finishing maneuver when Chris Havius’ music hit the sound system! This distracted Juarez long enough for David Clark to roll Branden up and get the victory!!

A furious Juarez had little time to react as Havius returned to PWP and immediately attacked him! He had the upper hand however Juarez bailed out of the ring before too much damage could be done. Havius then gave an emotional speech and challenged his former partner Juarez for February 12th!

*** PWP Heavyweight Championship Match: Preston Maxwell defeated “Babyface” Tony Cortez to win the Pro Wrestling Phoenix Heavyweight Championship! Matty Star’s music was played, but no one was sure what was going to happen. Preston Maxwell came out and very arrogantly explained that due to his attack, Star couldn’t compete. He then asked Tony if he was a fighting champion and when Tony said yes, he challenged him to put the title on the line against him right there and then. Cortez of course instantly agreed, never one to turn down a challenge. However, the evening had taken its toll on him. His second title reign that began on December 19, 2009 ended on January 15, 2011 when Maxwell locked in the Gator Roll Choke and Cortez passed out. Maxwell then made PWP Staff put the belt around his waist and repeatedly announce him as the new champion.

No one could have predicted the events of the evening. This is why you always have to be at PWP to see what could happen!
The next event is February 12th at the Council Bluffs National Guard Armory!

Tickets as always are $10 and the doors open at 6:30, bell time 7:00!

We know a little bit so far:

*Preston Maxwell will defend his PWP Heavyweight Championship. Who he will defend against is unclear at this point. There have already been people demanding a title shot against him, and we will know more soon.

*Chris Havius will take on Branden Juarez one on one! These former Tag Team Champions, now bitter rivals will beat the crap out of each other, that is for sure! Be there to see Havius attempt revenge!

More details will be announced soon, thanks to all our great fans! 2011 will truly be the year of Pro Wrestling Phoenix!

2.) Sean Nautilus and Angelus Layne wrestled to a No Contest when Donnie Peppercricket ran into the ring and attacked both competitors. Peppercricket was suspended from competing this evening, and he came in from the side entrance. He then said that he doesn’t care about being suspended or fined, that he is tired of being everyone’s dancing clown and he’s tired of the ridiculous name Donnie Peppercricket. He revealed that his name is actually Branden and he intends on making Chris Havius’ life a living hell.

3.) #1 Brett Young defeated David Clark via One Shot. David Clark was looking for the upset win here, and utilizing his array of suplex’s almost got it for him. However, Young’s experience and knowledge helped him pick up the victory over the rookie.

4.) PWP Tag Team Championship: Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Beautiful Bodies of Brian Gott & Derek Cornell via Sliced Bread/Splash Combo in a very fun tag team match!

7.) PWP Heavyweight Championship: “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Supafli via Ki-Krusher to retain his Heavyweight Championship. Cortez was given the opportunity to face anyone for the title and he chose Supafli because he said that he was very impressed by his recent victory over Jaysin Strife and wanted to see what he had in the ring face to face. These two crowd favorites put on a spectacle that will not soon be forgotten!

8.) Last Man Standing: Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell when Preston had the Gator Roll Choke locked on Abu and Abu found the strength to spear Maxwell through a table that had been set up in the corner, and Maxwell could not answer the referee’s 10 count. This match saw a lot of insane violence including scary repeated chair shots and brawling all over the arena. Maxwell even took the bottom rope off and choked Colossus with it! Maxwell had the Gator Roll Choke locked in a few times but Abu found a way out each time and showed why his nickname is the Big Hurt.

It was an amazing show, thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support! Next show is January 15th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, and it is Year of the Phoenix 6!!!

Details coming soon!

5 Questions from young Russian wrestling star Victor Kosymov.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 14, 2010

By Brian Kelley  

During the end of the World League Wrestling/ Pro Wrestling Noah Camp, we made our way to cover the weekend show that would highlight and honor the 2009 graduates of the camp. Serious wrestlers that knew that to be the best you had to learn from the best, I knew many of the students that took part of the camp.

Back from a trip to China was powerhouse David Clark, female wrestling sensation Lucy Mendez, young Jeff Strong and even the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling wisely took the opportunity to once again improve his skills during the must do camp of the year.

I was also introduced to a few International superstars Michael Nicholls and Shane Veryzer , two from Australia who has charisma to spare who we will intoduce you to in the future here at MWR.

One guy I met was Victor Kosymov, who had made the long trip from Moscow Russia.

First glimpse was a small guy like many others that want to be in wrestling today. I was told in confidence that this guy was good and considering my sources at WLW, I did not doubt them.

We cut a promo on his upcoming match with WLW rookie Jack Gamble who I have been quite a fan of ever since I saw him in the ring. Little did I know just how good this guy was.

In a exceptional match between two young inspiring wrestlers, the crowd was easily behind Jack Gamble with USA Chants echoing throughout the building. Still the Russian was no nonsense in his approach to take the confidence from the American and show WLW, Harley Race and Pro Wrestling Noah that he was one to look out for.

On this night my friend Jack Gamble had his hand raised but there is no doubt that I will be looking out for Victor Kosymov to make an impact in Pro wrestling in the near future.

Till then I am joined with Victor Kosymov with a special international Q and A

Hello Victor thank you for joining us at MWR today.

Victor Kosymov

1) First off lets start off with the landscape of pro wrestling in Russia, what can you tell us about it and who is the top stars in your country?

It’s allot different world than American wrestling. In 2002, a group of enthusiastic guys

opened a school of professional wrestling in Moscow, nobody knew about pro wrestling in Russia

at that time. But in 2003 they debuted with their first show called “Danger Zone”, and this show still is going today! We don’t have a professional schools and trainers here, it work only on

enthusiasm and energy of young guys who want become a professional wrestlers!

There is only one promotion in Moscow where you can wrestle. Shows are few and apart so unfortunately you can’t gain much experience here. It’s just at an amateur level.

2) How long have you been wrestling and who trained you from the start?

Before pro wrestling I was an amateur wrestler. In 2005 at age 15 I’ve began my

training. Training and working out came easy to me, I thought that I can do anything in ring. But then when I begun wrestle on live shows I finally understood how difficult the world of wrestling truly is!

I’d wrestle there years in Russia and I had only sixteen matches. My desire to become a professional was so bad that I knew that I had to make plans for trip to US. Nobody in our area had gone to the United States before me.

That was hard!

Mike Porter, the NWA promoter from Nashville TN, was a big help to make my dream became true! In 2009 I started to wrestle for NWA Main Event in Tennessee. That was a whole new world for me! In just a 3 months I’ve wrestle 20+ matches, it was a big step for me.

Again, how more stuff I learned about wrestling, then the more I understood that I knew nothing

about this business before!

3) You made the trip to Eldon Missouri to WLW. What will you take from that experience back home to you?

In 2010 I came back to US. I have worked 3 months with Dutch Mantell in his wrestling

school. I learned much about wrestling psychology there.

I knew about Harley Race’s school and was very interested to participate in the 2010 camp.

There were a bunch of problems on my way to Eldon. But finally I made it !

Two young stars of wrestling Victor Kosymov and Jack Gamble went toe to toe at WLW while two of wrestling’s most influential minds watched on. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

The 2010 WLW/Noah Camp was a great experience for me! I’m a totally different wrestler after that week . During the week at the camp I understood that the wrestling world is much bigger than I explain before.

Victor Kosymov is a wolverine in the ring, with his relentless and suffocating style of wrestling. (Photo Credit Bill Smith)

When I started out I focussed on working on a set of big moves and high spots. But now I know that there much more aspects to make a match work. The psychology, working the crowd and my character development are my top priorities as I work to reaching my goals

4) How would you describe your wrestling style ?

I am trying to learn new stuff from the old school. I like to combine a different styles of

wrestling and make my own new unique style.

5) What are your goals in pro wrestling in the near future?

We are working on opening a new wrestling school in Moscow. Looks like after all my travels in America I will be the head trainer here.

We will try to create professional industry of wrestling for the fans in my home land. We will work on our previous mistakes and take American experience to improve on what we do..

I need to concentrate on finishing my education in University first, then I can plan to

start my full time professional wrestling career.

This dream drives me every day.

Now I have a few years to prepare for this moment. It will be not easy, as I several apects that I will have to work on to become the best.

This is a huge difference between amateurs and professionals. My progress will

never stop!

Thank you Victor for your time

The PWP Tag Champs with their manager Axel Greece. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

At the beginning of the show, PWP Tag Team Champions Zac James & Ryan Slade came out along with “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. Greece explained that if Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket lost, they could never have another tag team title shot as long as James & Slade were champions. However if they won they would get Greece in the ring for five minutes after the match. They made fun of the crowd for a few minutes before Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket came out. They chased them out of the ring, and Chris Havius told them to up the stakes a little bit. He made the challenge to make the match a Tornado Tag match, which the Champions accepted!

1.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Jayden Draigo. This was a very technical opening bout, and Draigo didn’t seem like his usual self. In the end, SBC got what most would consider and upset win over Draigo with his TKO maneuver.

2.) “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Zach Thompson. You could tell that each man was familiar with the other’s work as there were reversals all over the place. In the end Rockwell laid out Thompson with the sit out Gordbuster and hit his Rock-On Bomb off the top rope to get the 1-2-3.

3.) Joey Daniels defeated David Clark. Clark, returning to the ring after a lengthy stay in China was looking to pick up where he left off by taking Joey Daniels out. There was a lot of action here, and Clark showed an amazing array of Suplexes and holds. However Daniels had his tricks up his sleeve as well, and capitalized on one small mistake Clark made to pick up the victory in this one. During the match, Jayden Draigo was observing from the entrance area, and afterwards, he got in the ring and whispered something in David Clark’s ear. We are not clear what the meaning of this is and are trying to get some more details. Clark declined comment on the matter.

4.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via Disqualification. Colossus was looking for revenge against Maxwell after last month’s mockery of the Big Hurt. However, during Colossus’ entrance, Maxwell sneak attacked him and they started brawling on the outside of the ring. They threw each other into walls and chairs as the referee tried to get them into the ring to start the match! Maxwell reversed a whip into the ring post and it seemed like Colossus was hurt. He rolled him into the ring and demanded the referee ring the bell but only got a two count. Some back and forth action between the two happened before Colossus set up for his big Full Nelson Slam, but Maxwell took the cheap way out by kicking him straight in the crotch! The referee rang the bell and Maxwell locked the Gator Roll Choke on Abu, refusing to let go.

The refs had a very difficult time getting Maxwell to break the hold. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Does Preston Maxwell have “The Big Hurts” number? It has look that way in the past few months. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

It took two referees and about 5 minutes before Maxwell finally let Colossus out of the hold and you could tell he was very proud of himself as he went to the locker room.

5.) Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to retain the PWP Tag Team Championship. This match broke down fast with the Tornado rules in place, and it seemed that every time Havius tried to get in the ring to stop Peppercricket from getting double-teamed, they would knock him back outside. The end came when Slade whipped Havius into the ring post causing a deep laceration requiring stitches to close. Meanwhile James hit the Sliced Bread on Peppercricket, and Slade followed it up with a splash from the top rope to retain their titles and save their manager from a beating. Elated, the champions left knowing they will never have to face the duo again.

What happened next was perhaps on of the most shocking moments in PWP history, as Donnie Peppercricket brutally attacked Chris Havius! He yelled that it was Havius’ fault, and hit him in the back multiple times with a steel chair! He then his Emerald Fusion maneuver onto the chair before leaving Havius lying in the middle of the ring.

NO… Donnie Peppercricket drops PWP official and close MWR friend Cody Murphy...Peppercricket how dare you!!!!(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

PWP Official Cody Murphy was in the ring immediately to check on Havius but his timing was too soon as Peppercricket, furious with rage returned to the ring and gave the Crew Member a Fire Thunder Driver! He then dragged Havius over the corner, put the chair on top of him and delivered a vicious Vader Bomb. The crowd was shocked as Peppercricket taunted them and left out the front door, on his way out, he taunted Havius’ girlfriend who was practically in tears after witnessing the beatdown. PWP Referees and Crew Members helped the PWP Official and Chris Havius to the back once Peppercricket was out of the building.

A beaten, bloodied and betrayed Chris Havius tries to figure out just what happened?(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Abu Colossus came out, looking pretty upset at Preston Maxwell’s actions from earlier in the night, and he laid out a challenge for the show on November 13th. He challenged Preston Maxwell to PWP’s first ever Last Man Standing match! This is going to be brutal!

6.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Matty Star to retain the PWP Heavyweight Championship. This was just an amazing contest, it’s hard to do it justice by just describing it! This match is the reason you need to be at PWP Live Events, the action was so intense between the two! There were multiple times when either man could have been pinned, but a critical moment came when Star (and the crowd) thought he had the match won with a Falcon Arrow off the TOP rope! Somehow Cortez found the heart to kick out of the maneuver! Star went up top one more time, but it was a mistake as Cortez was able to capitalize and deliver the Ki Krusher that he has been using to pin his opponents lately and retained his coveted title. After the match Cortez and Starr showed each other respect and you could see that Cortez deemed Star a worthy opponent.

The next PWP Live Event is November 13th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Notes for the show so far:

The match has been signed and it will happen! Next month’s main event will be the first ever Last Man Standing Match in PWP: Abu Colossus Vs. Preston Maxwell. If a challenger cannot get to his feet to answer a 10 count from the referee, than his opponent will be declared the winner! This is not just a matter of who is the better competitor but also a matter of pride for Colossus as he has little patience for the games that Maxwell likes to play.

As a result of his heinous actions, Donnie Peppercricket has been fined a sum of $1000 and is suspended from competition for the duration of November.

After toying with Angelus Layne, Jayden Draigo is despicable when he takes a cheap shot after the match. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

2.) Jayden Draigo defeated Angelus Layne. This was a case of Draigo toying with Layne, beating her mercilessly and refused to pin her. Instead he constantly dolled out more punishment before finally pinning her. Afterwards he cowardly attacked her with his Kendo stick.

Jimmy Rockwell looked to be on a roll till….(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Preston Maxwell gets chopped in the corner.(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

A major win for Preston Maxwell via Gator choke. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

3.) In what most would consider an upset, Preston Maxwell defeated Jimmy Rockwell with the Gator Roll Choke. Maxwell used the move in May to defeat Supafli and now used it to submit Rockwell.

Up and over goes Wyatt.(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

4.) Matty Starr earned his biggest win in PWP ever when he pinned “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. Afterwards, Wyatt showed his anger by hitting Starr with The Lightning Spiral and berating him. After intermission, Matty came back out and told Wyatt he wasn’t finished with him!

Zac James shows off his PWP Anytime Anywhere Contract that he can use for any PWP title shot anytime he choses. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

5.) “The Passion” Zac James defeated Supafli. He brought a chair into the ring and when the referee took it from him, he smashed the clipboard that contains his PWP Anytime Anywhere Contract over Supalfi’s head and got the pin. James still has the contract that he can use for any PWP title shot and any time he chooses.

8.) In a match that will go down as one of PWP’s best ever, “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Jaysin Strife to retain his PWP Heavyweight Championship. During the match, Strife was down on the outside and Jayden Draigo came out and superkicked Cortez in the face! Strife did not see this and covered Cortez, but Tony was able to kick out. After the match, Tony demanded that Draigo face him, and Draigo refused and talked more trash on Cortez before leaving.

Thanks to all the fans for coming out for a great night of action! PWP will kick off our summer tour on July 24th at Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene (just down the road from Horseshoe Casino) in Council Bluffs, IA! This will be an outdoor show and it is going to be a blast! Directions and details to come very soon!

Pro Wrestling Phoenix WARGAMES May 22 Photo Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 6, 2010

I am about to share with you a photo recap of Pro Wrestling Phoenix’s May card that was headlined by a 58 minute War Games Cage match between the Murder Militia and PWP Fan favorites.

Earlier in the night was a hard hitting ladder match between Jimmy Rockwell, Zac James and the powerful David Clark. Sir Bradley Charles was kind enough to wear a MWR Shirt to ring to throw to one lucky PWP Fan while sending Stephen Saint out of PWP just as fast as it took him to take off his shirt.

Fans also got to see the return of the 2008 MWR Tag team of the Year the Northstar Express take on the ultra flamboyant The Beautiful Bodies while PWP Legend Hype Gotti return to take on PWP Fan favorite Arik Cannon.

It was great to see my good friend and PWP Photographer Gary Giaffoglione while being able to see the hard work that the fine people at PWP did pay off by having a red hot crowd to witness a great night of wrestling.

I would like to thank Pro Wrestling Phoenix for allowing MWR to be a part of the show and do not forget this Saturday there is only one place to be at in Council Bluffs, as PWP Returns for this weekend .

Till then let’s enjoy a photo recap from last months exciting show.

7.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated The Murder Militia: Jayden Draigo, Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Joey Daniels & surprise entrant Arik Cannon! Cannon shocked the PWP audience by coming out as the 5th member of Murder Militia and attacking Tony Cortez right away! The match was an absolute brawl, wild and bloody, with so many crazy things that it really needs to be seen to be believed! The match ended when most of the Murder Militia were locked out of the cage and the PWP faithful hit move after move on Draigo, ending it with a huge shot to the head by Jaysin Strife with Draigo’s own kendo stick, then gaining the pinfall.

It was an absolutely amazing night of action, thanks to all the fans for making it a huge night to remember!
Here’s to five more years of PWP and don’t forget June 12, 2010 is the next event,

PWP fans! What a phenomenal evening the 5th Anniversary Spectacular turned out to be! We start the next chapter of PWP on June 12, 2010! PWP Management wants to get back to the basics of athletic competition and sportsman-like conduct! For that reason, we have signed the following main event for June 12th:

PWP Heavyweight Championship Match:
“Babyface” Tony Cortez © Vs. Jaysin Strife

These two men have been on both sides of the fence in PWP’s five-year history and they were both victorious last month in the Wargames Cage. Strife has not received a rematch ever since he lost the PWP Title last November. Cortez will be looking to prove that he is the best PWP has to offer. This will be one for the ages!

PWP Tag Team Championship Match:
#1 Brett Young & Joey Daniels © Vs. Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket

Havius & Peppercricket have been demanding another Tag Team Title shot for months and after their victory in May, PWP officials have granted it to them. Brett Young took Joey Daniels under his wing many months ago and this is their chance to show the fans what Young has taught and what Joey has learned. You can bet there will still be hard feelings from last month as well!

“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt will be at the armory on June 12th. What will his mood be after being tied to the ropes and forced to watch his team lose from only feet away?

In May, “The Passion” Zac James won a shot at any PWP title, redeemable at any time. Will he cash in his shot in June? Or will he bide his time?

Sir Bradley Charles set a record in PWP, and then immediately broke his own record when he beat Stephen Saint in about 20 seconds, then beat him again in an immediate rematch in about 15 seconds! He will be in action June 12th!

Will Jayden Draigo be able to even show his face in PWP after being destroyed by all five members of Team PWP in the Wargames match? Be there June 12th to find out!

Also in action: Abu Colossus, Jimmy Rockwell, David Clark, Matty Starr, Preston Maxwell, Supafli, The Beautiful Bodies & more!

A look at the first half of 2010 in the MWR Coverage area. Nominate your favorite.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 16, 2010

By Brian Kelley

We are very close to the half year of 2010 and what a year it has been!

In the past few months both WWE and TNA have hosted PPV’S with WWE’S Elimination Chamber and TNA’S lockdown that was also headline with a fan interaction that allowed fans to meet stars such as Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Rob Vam Dam, Jeff Hardy and most of the rest of the TNA roster.

Old school fans can be happy that they have had a chance to meet the stars that brought memories that will last a lifetime when at TNA’S legends main event brought in the biggest stars of the 80’s and beyond with Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Sting.

The fun would keep coming when you were able meet other stars such as former WWE World Champion Bob Backland, Roddy Piper, Road Warrior Animal, Jimmy Snuka along with several other greats during Wrestling Legends on Tour.

On the Indy front I have to believe that everyone involved with their promotions needs to feel thrilled with the support and attendance from the fans as attendance and action has picked up for the most part at most shows.

Former WLW Wrestler  Dennis T McHawes released an autobiography called “Blood Tables and Chairs that allows fans to get a glimpse of the Indy scene not to long ago.

Mike Sydal continues his rise to the National spotlight after winning the PWI Rookie of the Year he followed that up by wrestling during WRESTLEMANIA weekend with Ring of Honor in a six man tag team race and earned the pin fall for his team.

Will Metro Pro Wrestling jump over the competition in 2010 with their debut at Memorial Hall on June 4th?

Till then lets look at 2010 shortly and what to forward to.

Let’s start out alphabetical.

3XWrestlingThe 2008 MWR Promotion of the year continues their standard of excellence with some great action. 3XW Heavyweight Champion Jeremy Wyatt and Ring of Honor a World Champion Tyler Black earned a standing ovation in April when the two went to a draw. Rory Fox who came close in 09 by taking out “The Belt Collector” won the May “Gauntlet for the Gold”. This could easily set up Wyatt vs. Fox feud part 2, one that would be great for the fans.

3XW Pure Wrestling Champion Kraig Kessaman has been rolling through the company using the deadly “Nordic Spike” maneuver and has not been pinned at 3XW in 23 months. While 3XW cruiserweight Champion Jimmy Rockwell came very close in defeating 3XW Champion Jeremy Wyatt at the Over the top show earlier this month

On a sad note the very popular tag team The High Flyers of Zach Thompson and Mike Sydal was forced by Todd Countryman to go against each other in a loser leaves town match that saw Thompson earned quite possibly the biggest win his short career by defeating the smoking red hot Sydal.

All American Pro Wrestling – Exciting feuds , shocking moments and near riots mixed in with former WWE and TNA Superstars brought AAPW among the top of the most talked about promotions in the area coverage.

The year started off with the very popular Edmund “Livewire” McGuire holding the AAPW Championship. During a title defense against the popular and powerful Mississippi Madman that would soon end. McGuire’s mountain to retain was huge but the backstabbing of McGuire’s best friend Shane Rich during the match would cost him the title and a feud is set to happen anytime. Rich was suspended for his actions. The fans and McGuire have been itching for a rematch BUT…

The Madman would find himself in the fire quickly as the 2008 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt came knocking for the belt. The Madman would retain but not before a near riot almost broke out. AAPW had no other option but to sign a rematch between the two at the very next show. Problems arose when Rich talked his way into the match making it a 3way and capitalizing by taking home the belt.

As of press time AAPW is set to bring to the Midwest WWE’S Jerry Lawler and Kevin Thorn and more AAPW matches at RENT ONE Park on May 22 in prior to a minor league baseball game. AAPW has also brought in TNA’S Andy Douglas and WWE/ECW’S Simon Dean…. We can all look forward to McGuire vs. Rich in the second half of the year.

High Voltage Wrestling – What High Voltage Wrestling lacked in amount of shows they made up for it in quality of matches and continuing their tradition of debuting some of the top stars in the St Louis area. During HVW’s first year they brought you “The Internaininal Superstar” Kahagas, TNA’S Santana G, The Hooligans, Matt Cage, Zero Gravity and Tony Kozina and in their second year they brought to you the very exciting Ryan Phoenix, Flash Flannigan, Dan the Manand Sir Bradley Charles.

Kahagas vs. Flash Flannigan was an instant hit and when the HVW Tag Champions the Hooligans went against the KC Killers the ropes would break but the action would not. Santana G would earn the respect of one of the greatest women wrestlers in the world MsChif and earn the respect of her and the two would team up once again.

Young Brandon Aarons would get a huge win for the fan favorites by defeating fellow young star Mike Sydal for the HVW Livewire Championship.

The HVW Champion has been defending the title around world and looks to face on all challenges in 2010.

Independent Hardcore Wrestling– IHW has been filled with packed shows with action throughout the building. Filled with stars who do not get as much hype like Billy McNeil, Steve Kennedy, Eric Allen, Mephisto and Brandon Aarons they have made themselves a legit promotion and giving the fans their money’s worth.

Former TNA Star Mickie Knuckles and the Great Cheyenne continue the improvement of the  women wrestling Midwest while Eric Allen’s exciting Illinois state Championship shocked the Midwest. IHW Champion Brandon Aarons match with Kennedy was an instant classic. MR Late Nite looks to make his mark in the Midwest to finish off 2010.

IHW heats up the summer in 2010 with a stacked card on June 12th in Dupo Illinois when Mickie Knuckles returns to take on Mia Martinez, SLAM The Canadian Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Tony Kozina will take on exciting Bailey Mannix; Champions will collide when IHW Champion Aarons will meet IHW Illinois Champion Allen in a street fight.

IWA Productions – One of the biggest announcements of the first half had to do with IWA P bringing at their free Wednesdays show last week when non other than ICP came into bring fans to their feet. So much excitement that IWA P had to turn fans away do to a fire code. ALL for free.

In January they brought in former WWE Superstar the Honky Tonk Man and their students stepped up to provide a much talked about match between Christian Rose and Danny Cannon ladder match.

A mixture of free shows and paid shows that has also showcased Matt Cage taking on former WWE Champion Eugene, Ladies star Ann Brookstone along with “Homicidal” Steven Davis provide the fans with some top notch excitement.

Metro East Championship Wrestling– Wrestling in Woodriver provides the fans with an exciting night to hang with friends and family. The promotion had a set back when the MECW had to announce that champion Mannix was unable to defend due to an injury. Mannix though respect for his talent was hated for his actions meant that possibly one of the fan favorites such as Devin Carter or the “Kid” Evan Money could get their chance as MECW Gold.

Imagine the disappointment when bad guy Eric Allen was able to win the 8 man tournament and gain his second title in months. Who will be able to take the title back from EA? Will it be Carter in his rematch on the 22nd, or will Gabriel Brimstone, Brian Scrilla, or the returning Shawn Santel come back to glory.

MECW Tag team champions The Bayou Outlaws are one of the most underappreciated teams in the Midwest and loved by the fans.

On a National level MECW can hang their head up high Barry Ryte in his opportunity to appear at the 14th annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament later this summer on Sat. July 10, 2010 in Newark DE.

MMWA-SICWThe 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year has seen some exciting new faces and old friends join the veterans of the South Broadway Athletic Club. Impressive Dave Vaughn has taken on all challenges in his way including the powerful Donnovan Ruddick.
Speaking of Ruddick the Manager of Champions Travis Cook looks to take him to the top as he has signed him to his stable “The Connections.” With the skills of Ruddick and the mind of Cook these two could be unstoppable.

Brandon Espinosa has returned with a vengeance and is currently the MMWA-SICW JR Heavyweight Champion as well as the MMWA-SICW Battle Royal Champion. Will he set his sights on becoming a Triple Crown championship?

Life is not all good in the world of Travis Cook; he has agitated the returning MMWA-SICW Superstar Ron Powers and Danny Boy. In Cooks favor is the fact that Gary Jackson has also wanted a piece of his old rival Powers.

On a National scene the St Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame that is located at the SBAC presented Ric Flair, Bobby Hennan, Dory Funk JR and Baron Von Raschke with their HOF Plaques at the TNA Fan interaction.

What Midwest Superstars will make their debut at MMWA-SICW in the rest of 2010? I can not wait to find out.

New Midwest Wrestling – The newest promotion at MWR, New Midwest have been around for a long time entertaining fans in Sprinfield Illinois.

The NMW Roster brings together an exciting roster with Cory Carter, Guy Smith, Ryan Phoenix, Dan the Man and Blake Steel as well the New Midwest Wrestling Champion Jonathan Magnus.

New Midwest Wrestling returns this week with Capital Punishment 2010 as Magnus have his title threatened when Rip Mystic comes after him.

NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling– NWA Dynamo has slowly been building steam heading into the second half of 2010. Home of the NWA Missouri Champion Davey Vega and NWA Central States Championship Mark Sterling they brought us the battle of Champions when the two took on each other during their May 1 show where Vega tapped out to the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

NWA Missouri Champion Vega will look to get back on track when he takes on Dragon Gate star Kyle O’Reilly on May 22nd.

Like I said a quiet year so far for this top promotion but look for them to sprint to the top in 2010.

NWA Supreme – MWR was honored to be invited to check out this exciting promotion early this year and we were impressed. The giant Bear ST Pierre and the electrifying Da Cobra brings to the ring a fast paced wrestling show with a punch in the Face.

NWA Supreme Champion Da Cobra has been red hot and will look to add Danny Cannon on his list of men he sent home packing. Bear ST Pierre has survived the onslaught on Jeremy Wyatt and De Andre King and Guy Smith and on May 29 he will have the formidable foe of Christian Rose looking to take home the title.

. The Hooligans and the Hybrids tore each other apart in the cage and it looks to only getting hotter as the summer comes around.

Fan have to be excited as the NWA Supreme brings you the NWA Midwest Championship match between the Shiek with Joey Eastman and Silas Young as well on the 29th.

Pro Wrestling Epic – One of the youngest promotions in the MWR Coverage area has been working hard to get respect. Signing some of the top names in the sport they boast some of the top talents in the Midwest today.

One fallback to that statement is that the PWE Champion Keith Walker has been in Japan meaning that he is unable to defend the title as needed. Even with Walker out the states they have the new PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons and the PWE tag team Champions Zero Gravity on their roster.

At their only show of the year the night started of with Mark Sterling as the PWE US Champion. Sterling defeated Mike Sydal then announced to the crowd that he was not done. He would be more than happy to beat anyone else in the locker room. Aarons showed true heart by answering the call even though he was defeated by Wyatt earlier in the night. Amazingly Aarons would defeat Sterling and become the PWE US Champion.

PWE and Aarons returns with their biggest test to date when PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons takes on Ring of Honor World Champion Tyler Black go at it in a match that you will not want to miss.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix– The faction known as Murder Milita looked to have PWP on their knees and in total control at the start of the year. The Murder Militia (Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Mark Sterling, Joey Daniels & Jayden Draigo) would find that Team PWP (PWP Heavyweight Champion ”Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket) was not going to back down for nothing.

The bomb is about to go off in the name of WAR Games this coming Saturday. Will the Militia continue to leave the PWP Wrestlers and fans in fear heading into 2010?
Young David Clark, Jimmy Rockwell and Zac James is set to battle in a ladder match for the chance to get a chance at any PWP Championship that night as well.

The PWP Champion Babyface Tony Cortez has defeated Jeremy Wyatt, Joey Daniels Jimmy Rockwell and Jaysin Strife since becoming the Champion last December.

World League WrestlingHarley Race’s WLW took their time to get back in the game in 2010 but it was well worth the wait.

Starting off the year they had a tournament to crown new WLW Tag Champions and lo and behold Steve Fender and Mark Sterling walked away with the coveted tag team titles. Sterling and Fender are two of the most rounded wrestlers in singles, together they are scary good.

On the Singles from the WLW Title has been filled with action as the powerful Trent Stone held the title till in front of over 300 people in Richmond former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch pinned him in a leather strap match to regain the title.

It won’t be easy for Murdoch as Stone, Brian Breaker along with impressive young stars Jack Gamble, Ryan Drago, the Cancun Kid and Eathon Wright will all have their eyes to get to the top of the Mountain.

The WLW Ladies Champion Amy Hennig finds herself with competition all around as TNA’S Santana G earned a DQ victory from Hennig and the unknown Angelus Layne made her debut at WLW Keokuk IA. Some of the most exciting matches in women’s wrestler may well come from WLW.

That is a look at some of the promotions in the first half of the year. We are asking for the Promotions, Wrestlers and Fans to send in their thoughts on who was the best of the best in the first half year at MWR.

There will not be a winner announced for this but this will help the MWR Awards committee to not forget in the 2010 MWR Awards who is deserving. In each category there is some strong competition if the vote was to be voted on today I could not guess who would walk away the winners.
