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.

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!

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.

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.

March 26th IWA Mid-South Photo Recap Sabu vs Prince Ali plus Ryan Phoenix vs Jaysin Strife.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 11, 2010

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

MWR fans a week prior to March 26 the real world was kicking me in the rear hard and I knew that I was going to be covering the High Voltage Wrestling show that Saturday but the weekend could not come soon enough. When my good friend Keny asked for me to ride with him to IWA Mid-south in Bellevue Illinois on that Friday there was no way I was going to be able to get off work on time to get to ST Louis to ride with him, so I asked for a quick day off from the boss to get away so I wouldn’t lose my job. The trip was well worth it.

Six hours on the road there I really had no clue who was on the card other than Kahagas, The Hooligans and Ryan Phoenix who I have been dying to see and ECW original Sabu. When I got their I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my favorites Jaysin Strife would be in action as well as my friend Donnie Peppercricket.

Not only would I get to see Phoenix for the first time another wrestler who has been on my checklist to see would be in action with Prince Ali taking on Sabu. This would also be my first chance to check out Nick Cage, Sal Thomaselli and Devon Moore. The Midwest sweetheart Santana G took on her rival Jessika Haze while Neil Diamond Cutter and Matt Cage tore each other apart.

I would like to thank Keny for the offer to check out this exciting show and IWA-Mid South for their hospitality.

Sat back and check out the sights of IWA –MS

PWP’s 2010 Year of the Phoenix V Photo Recap by Gary Giaffoglione – Jayden Draigo returns

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 23, 2010

Photos by Gary Giaffoglione

The show started with a shocking return, as Jayden Draigo made his way to the ring. Draigo was a staple of the Omaha area wrestling scene for many years, but left PWP on very bad terms back in early 2006, so to see him again in the PWP ring came as quite a shock to many. Draigo went on to explain that the 4 men who had been collectively known as The Murder Militia had been on top of the company for a long run, but lacked the vision and guidance to bust through to the next level – which he was there to offer. He promised the PWP faithful that change was on its way.

*** Matty Star defeated Stephen Saint. After the match, The Murder Militia’s “Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt returned to PWP, and laid out both men. Wyatt went on to state that he was back, and coming for “his” PWP Heavyweight Title.

This brought out Jaysin Strife, the man who took the title from Wyatt – Strife and Wyatt then debated over their past accomplishments, which finally brought out “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon. Cannon said they all had done a lot to be proud of, but instead of talking about it – why not lace up their boots, and see who was the best in a 3-Way Dance later in the evening.

*** Abu Colossus defeated David Clark. Clark’s stock continued to rise, even in defeat, proving that this rookie is not to be taken lightly. However, Abu showed everybody once again that he is undoubtedly one of the strongest forces in PWP.

*** “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade defeated Darin Corbin via DQ, stealing a page out of Eddie Guerrero’s playbook, making it look like Corbin had hit Slade with a flag pole, even though he did not.

*** PWP Heavyweight Champion, “Babyface” Tony Cortez came out and stated that he would be a fighting champion, but would be choosing his own challenger for the night, he chose “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. Cortez obviously underestimated Rockwell, as Jimmy nearly had the match and the title won at several points. In the end however, Cortez showed that he truly is one of the very best, picking up the win.

After the match, Jayden Draigo came back out, to confront Tony Cortez. Draigo spoke about the history the two shared, both being pioneers for independent pro wrestling in the area, and even talking about how Draigo was the one to initially train Cortez. Jayden offered Cortez a spot in the Murder Militia, telling him to at least consider it.

*** Up next, The Murder Militia’s Mark Sterling & Joey Daniels were to challenge Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket for the PWP Tag Team Titles. An irate Havius came out alone, saying that he just found Donnie bloodied in the back. Sterling & Daniels kept yelling for Havius to simply forfeit the titles – however Havius insisted on fighting, even if it was 2 on 1. Havius held his own, but took a severe beating – until Jaysin Strife ran out, hoped into Chris’ corner, and stepped up as his partner. Strife cleaned house, until he was pulled out of the ring, and sent into the ring post by Jayden Draigo. With Strife out of the picture, Havius was overwhelmed by the odds, and Sterling & Daniels became the new PWP Tag Team Champions. The new champions celebrated with Draigo as they made their way to the back.

Jeremy Wyatt wins yet another Main event match. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

*** In the main event, “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, Jaysin Strife, and “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon squared off in a fast paced, epic encounter. In the end, The Murder Militia’s Mark Sterling and Brett Young pulled Cannon out of the ring and held him as Joey Daniels laid a beating on him – while the referee was trying to get order restored, in the ring, Jayden Draigo hit Strife with a Super Kick, followed by Wyatt hitting The Lightning Spiral. The referee slid back in just in time to count the three, making Wyatt the winner.

After the match, Wyatt and Draigo put the boots to Strife, as Tony Cortez made his way to the ring applauding and smiling. Cortez got in the ring, and raised the arms of Draigo and Wyatt – but then in a shocking moment, Cortez hit a double Flatliner on both men, to a huge ovation from the crowd. Helping Strife up, Cortez and Strife then fought off the other members of the Murder Militia, before Draigo called them all back to regroup. The night ended with Cortez and Strife standing tall.

The Murder Militia appears to be stronger than ever, having reclaimed the PWP Tag Team Titles, and now with the guidance and vision of Jayden Draigo – however, the PWP resistance is far from dead as well. What will happen next? We’ll just have to wait and see!

We now look to Saturday February 13, 2010 – where Pro Wrestling Phoenix will hold it’s 50th EVENT!!

Details coming very soon!
