One on One with St. Louis Anarchy’s Pierre Abernathy

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 12, 2015

Pierre Abernathy and Gary Jay

It is a pleasure to have with us today pro wrestler and owner of St. Louis Anarchy Matt Jackson, better known to wrestling fans as Pierre Abernathy. Since his debut in 2003, Pierre has made an impact in the wrestling scene in many aspects of the wrestling business. Pierre, thank you for taking the time to speaking with us at Missouri Wrestling Revival

Pierre: No problem, thanks for having me.

MWR: What was your first memories of pro wrestling and who did you look up to growing up?

Pierre: The first pro wrestling event I can remember watching live was WrestleMania VI with Hogan vs. Warrior.

 photo 3067855449_f5dcc170ab_z_zpsw9d4ddlu.jpg

I was a huge Hogan fan so when he lost that sucked for me. I can remember going to the STL arena watching all the WWF live shows and I was at the only show WWF did at the old Busch Stadium, so that was cool.

MWR: The first opportunity that I got to see you in action was in Lawrence, Kansas for NWA Central States Wrestling as you and Gary Jay lost a three way to Nick Tyson on September 30, 2006. At that point you had been wrestling a little over than three years. How did you get your start in pro wrestling and who were the most helpful in your success?

Pierre: I first got my start when I met Jordan Lacey, he bought a ring and we were going to train in it. The issue was that he didn’t have the training to train us and to his credit he knew that. Most guys would NEVER admit that they had no business training people but he did. We later met Adam Raw and Nick Tyson and they did our training.

From there they started the LWA and we worked there and branched into Gateway Championship Wrestling. Unlike most guys, our trainers did not travel, so we didn’t have a lot of help getting out of town shots. It was Matt Sydal and Delirious who taught us in a 12-hour seminar that we needed to get in a car and get out of STL and make résumés and start sending them out and do seminars all over and that is what we did.

MWR: What early match that you had gave you the confidence to succeed as a pro wrestler?

 photo Pieree and Gary_zpsvnpdhop9.jpg

Pierre: Honestly I can’t think of one match. I always had confidence in my promo work more than my wrestling at the start. I think if I had to pick a break out match, I had a three-way match with Gary and Dorian Victor kind of early on that I liked. Plus, working Gary every weekend in a new state we could feel ourselves growing as wrestlers every week.

MWR: You would be part of the group that would spearhead The Lethal Wrestling Alliance. Who else were involved and what is the legacy of that promotion?

Pierre: Honestly I didn’t have anything to do with the start of LWA. LWA was started by Adam Raw and Jordan Taylor. When Jordan went into the Navy it went into the committee of five guys: Adam Raw, Nick Tyson, Frank Cashion, Mike D and Tim P ( I don’t want to butcher the spelling of their last names).

 photo 0_zpsfa8otrcl.jpg

Jordan Lacey has been a part of the most brutal matches in the modern era of STL wrestling. Here he wars it out against the former MWR Future Star winner Alex Rudolph.

So Tyson was supposed to write the shows and book the talent but he wasn’t doing it, so I would in the background write the shows and send them with him to meetings and no one would know about it and he would get the credit. Fast forward a few years, he was going to quit, so Raw was kind of freaking out thinking he would have to write the shows all himself. I had to tell him I was really doing it all this time, which shocked him and so then I started writing and booking talent from there. Years later when the others quit, it became myself, Raw and Jordan Lacey. In the end of LWA, it was just me and Jordan Lacey.

 photo 19_zpspstjvosy.jpg

Many of the top rising stars int the sport has made their way to SLA.

MWR: Fans at LWA were blessed to enjoy some great matches featuring local talent against many of the top stars in the world. Not too long ago, Austin Aries was the TNA World Champion, Davey Richards was a Ring of Honor World Champion and most recently one half of the TNA Tag Team Champions with Eddie Edwards, and Samoa Joe is quite possibly the most talked about free agent in the world today, but they all entered the squared circle at LWA.

These matches along with other stars including Delirious, Mike Quackenbush and The Motor Machine Guns against LWA homegrown talents are featured on the DVD US vs. Them (click here to purchase). What memories stand out about this historic matches at LWA?

Pierre: There are tons of thoughts I have about that. The two big ones being the first “name talent” we ever used was Alex Shelley and our fans hated him with a passion because he was facing their guy in Nick Tyson and when Tyson tapped him out the legit emotion that came after is what this business is about to me: real emotion. The Second was Samoa Joe: A lot of people were saying behind my back (but I hear everything) that I was making a big mistake putting Dorian in that match and not Adam Raw, and to be honest at that time Raw was a better wrestler than Dorian—hell, Dorian was only a few years in, I think. However, Dorian grew from that match and it taught him how to step up… That’s my job: I have to force you to go outside of your comfort zone and step up to the plate, because if you can’t I need to know that before you fall on your face in maybe a way bigger situation. That night Dorian stepped up and grew from it.

 photo 16_zpsomkphf8s.jpg

MWR: You are a member of the famed Submission Squad with. Time has shown that you guys are among the most entertaining tag teams in the country, but early on in your career you teamed up with Evan Gelistico against Davey Vega and Gary the Barn Owl to showcase LWA for Chikara’s King of Trios 2009. In a weekend filled with top Indy wrestling stars like Bryan Danielson (Future WWE Champion Daniel Bryan), Austin Aries, and El Generico (WWE’S Sami Zayn) , the match would receive chants of “DON’T COME BACK!” Many men after that night may have given up, but it only shows how much heart that the four of you had, during that time. Many people snickered and counted you out, but you guys have had the last laugh by becoming among the most traveled talents in the country. Looking back what went wrong, what could you have done different and what advice would you have for a young wrestler that would experience such a situation?

Pierre: I would say that you cannot let what people say bother you. When that happened to be honest it didn’t bother me, it did more the other guys for different reasons. Vega because he lacked confidence anyway so that almost killed him, Gary because the ECW arena was his dream and we just got booed out of it and Evan because he loved the idea of working Chikara. I am telling the God’s honest truth that it didn’t bother me because I was expecting it the whole time. Here you have the biggest weekend of the Chikara calendar with legit stars from all over the world and then you have four dudes from a company in Missouri that none of them knew.. How were they supposed to treat us? Plus, we did ourselves zero favors because of the way we worked the match. We are known for our personalities and we showed zero of it and that is what sucked. However we made a lot of money after that match because people wanted to see if either A) we really sucked or B) they knew we didn’t and wanted to bring us out. So I would do it all again, plus we went back there in 2014 and killed it, so it came full circle for us.

 photo 18_zpsgasyipp5.jpg

MWR: As I mentioned you have traveled around the country, including Canada. What has been your personal favorite places to wrestle and why?

Pierre: I love most every trip but I’ll pick one place and say ACW in Texas. Texas was like my second home for many years and I love the fans and friends I made there. Some of my favorite memories came from hangouts I had in Texas.

MWR: For seven years the LWA was known for an alternative style of wrestling that combined strong style, hardcore, comedy and good times for the fans, but a new day came that saw you announce the merging with the Texas based promotion known as Anarchy Championship Wrestling (ACW). That decision has allowed the fans to see many of the top stars of the Texas area make their way to the Midwest, while giving the young stars in this area to grow by challenging themselves against other top talents that may not have a chance to work with. In your eyes, who have taken advantage of working in the land of Anarchy and who are some of the top young stars that fans should have their eyes on for the future?

Pierre: Since we started Anarchy, we have seen ACH become a top star in the USA and I won’t do what a lot of others do and try and take credit for that man’s success. His success has helped us grow, so thank you to him.
 photo 6_zps2qjnlbiu.jpg

Gary Jay and Davey Vega are in my opinion the two top guys in the area and they prove that every time they work in a ring. The fact neither of them are under a contract is a shame. The Hooligans are guys you have seen grow in Anarchy. Christian Rose has been tearing it up other places for a while but our fans are finally seeing how good he is. Two guys who I think could be the next 2 big stars are Jo Jo Bravo and Mat Fitchett. Jo Jo has gotten really good really fast and it’s up to Fitchett how far he wants to go. He has been ready for a long time now. One guy to watch I think is Everett Connor; I call him my new project because he is a good kid with potential.
 photo 5_zpsorpxpbtf.jpg

The only guy who I think may be worse now than he was when we started SLA is Evan Gelistico… [sarcasm]

MWR: The Submission Squad was ranked number 12 in 2011 in the MWR’S top 30 tag teams during the MWR years. Four years later, the SS is still running strong, even capturing the Metro Pro Wrestling Tag Team titles recently as the Commission.

Because LWA and later SLA did not have tag belts along with the outside travel, it may have hurt your rankings in the poll. That year a team that you guys know very well the Hooligans were ranked number one, and are currently the St. Louis Anarchy tag team Champions. What has made the Hooligans and the Submission Squad such a great rivalry?

 photo 2_zpsbbufxkhr.jpg

Pierre: We just have good chemistry and we strive to do the same thing and that’s have a great match. We clicked since the first match we had at an IHW show in Dupo IL.

 photo 17_zpszkx7qljf.jpg

At one time we worked with the Hooligans at least once a weekend for like five months in a row, I think… Plus those guys love tag team wrestling as much as we do so it’s easy, The Hooligans are amazing talents.

 photo 8_zpsgw7dpbuk.jpg

MWR: SLA has recently been the home of double shot weekends in Alton, Illinois. You have promoted events for years, what are the advantages and disadvantages of having back to back events?

Pierre: Well it doubles the stress. I mean we have only done two, so I really do not know yet. I’ll say the advantage is for the fans as they will get 2 events a weekend instead of 1. As we keep going with this I am sure more advantages and disadvantages will come clear.

MWR: St. Louis Anarchy events have always been a can’t-miss show as talents around the world have been in action during each of your events. Men like Kyle O’Reilly, Michael Elgin, Chris Hero, the Young Bucks, Davey Richards, Akira Tozawa, and TJ Perkins have all appeared in the past. Who would you like to see that has not appeared yet?

Pierre: We used him in LWA but I really want to bring our fans Alex Shelley as he was supposed to work a show but got hurt. I am hoping to bring some more guys from overseas in. To be honest we will always use that name talent that people have come to think about when thinking of SLA but I am wanting to use more guys who are great but not maybe as well known…. Like there are Gary Jays and Davey Vegas all over the USA who are great but just can’t get breaks and I want to give them their breaks because you never know who could be the next ACH that you just are overlooking.

MWR: On August the 21st and 22nd, Circus Maximus 2015, an event what many fans say is THE event of the year for SLA? Circus Maximus has always delivered with a great mix of national talent as well as the top rising stars around the country. I am going to do a rundown of this years’ SLA talent pool for the double shot weekend and I would like for you to give your thoughts on them. We will start off with the current SLA Champion Gary Jay.

 photo 20_zpsshakyghc.jpg

Pierre: Hardest working man in Anarchy, he tears down the house every time and then is the first person to lead people in tearing down the ring. He gives his all to the company and should be getting more chances outside it.

MWR: Tommaso Ciampa

Pierre: I’m looking forward to seeing him in SLA. He’s a tough dude so guys will have their hands full with him.

MWR: Davey Vega

 photo 4_zpsfn8rlotd.jpg

Pierre: The “Ace of Anarchy” isn’t just a nickname, it is who Vega has become. He went from a guy who would legit vomit before a match to a guy who I know will always have one of the best matches on the show. He’s the man.

MWR: Mat Fitchett

 photo 11_zpsjiuenk22.jpg

Pierre: The Dirty Rook could be a star if he is able to really hit the road and do it. Sometimes though real life things are more important but he’s an awesome talent.

MWR: Jonathan Gresham

 photo 9_zpsacxbzzv2.jpg

Pierre: He won’t be at Circus Maximus, but he’s an amazing hold for hold wrestler who stole the weekend at Gateway to Anarchy.

MWR: Jo Jo Bravo

 photo 1_zpsrttu3ky8.jpg

Pierre: One of the top up and comers in Anarchy. He has held his own with some of the best in the world.

MWR: Christian Rose

 photo 14_zpssodeshxf.jpg

Pierre: Great talker and wrestler and our fans are getting to finally see that. Plus, behind the curtain I love talking good and–even better–shitty wrestling with Rose more than maybe anybody.

MWR: Matt Cage

 photo 13_zps5xedkevm.jpg

Pierre: He’s a lot like Rose in that he has been tearing it up other places and our fans will finally get to see more of that in Anarchy.

MWR: Angelus Lane

 photo 7_zpsmhzeigut.jpg

Pierre: The 1st lady of Anarchy. I am very proud of Layne. She has grown by leaps and bounds as a wrestler and she improves every event we have.

MWR: Viking War Party

 photo vwp28_zpsyg6tfk4f.jpg

Pierre: Going to have to buy me chairs if they keep breaking them. Both guys are awesome. Alex I have known since before he started, I am happy every time I see them work and get better and better.

MWR: Ricky Starks

 photo 4_zpstuwapltk.jpg

Pierre: Big deal in Texas and I think he can do the same here so keep your eyes on him as I think he is going to do well.

MWR: The Cause: Mr. Gelistico, Mr. Raw, Mr. Adams, Mr. Everett

 photo 10_zpsibm5mp0g.jpg

Pierre: We will have to see.

MWR: Zakk Sawyers

 photo 5_zps1kj5recg.jpg

Pierre: The 2014 Anarchy Rookie of the year. He’s not a rookie but was in Anarchy and he stepped up huge. A hard worker in and out of the ring and really appreciates his spot on the roster and he earns it.

MWR: Mikey McFinnigan

 photo 7_zpsttfxkfcw.jpg

Pierre: Kinda just starting to see what he can do. He will do well in Anarchy, he’s very entertaining.

MWR: Jeremy Wyatt

 photo 3_zpsdvmyyysb.jpg

Pierre: The best LWA champion of all time. Jeremy is one of my favorite wrestlers and is a pure class act to deal with outside the ring. Jeremy makes no bones about his wrestling days coming to an end and I’ll be sad to see him go, but he’s a guy who will leave better than he came in and how many guys can honestly say that. He’s always done anything I asked him to do and I don’t think Jeremy knows how much I respect him and appreciate his run with the LWA title.

MWR: Steve O Reno

 photo 15_zpsuiutrzzb.jpg

Pierre: Honestly, I worked him in ACW and I knew he was good. Other than that I have only seen his two matches in SLA and that is it. I think he is very entertaining and he can wrestle, too, so I think big things are on the horizon for him.

MWR: Bolt Brady

 photo 12_zpsf7dnafpq.jpg

Pierre: I think his change in attitude will be good for him in SLA. I like making people do stuff they may not be used to doing. Bolt is a pro and will do great. He’s getting a lot of miles under him too which is awesome. I like Bolt a lot.

MWR: PACO

 photo 2_zpsnvp4cxwi.jpg

Pierre: In SLA, he became a star in one weekend. Taking Trik Davis to the limit and taking a hellish beating from Gary Jay. I think Paco is a hungry kid who will do big things.

MWR: Pierre, Thank you so much for joining us today, it is always a treat to get to speak with you. How can fans follow you and the world of St. Louis Anarchy?

Pierre: I am on Facebook under Pierre Abernathy and Twitter is @PierreAbernathy. You can like SLA on Facebook at Saint Louis Anarchy and on Twitter @stlanarchy. Thanks for the time!

Are the Young Bucks prepared for the Hooligans at St Louis Anarchy?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 23, 2014

 photo sla3_zps993a0ae7.jpg

The hardcore wrestling fan base are quick to point out that one of the top tag teams that you have never heard of is the Young Bucks. They consist of southern California heart throbs, brothers Matt and Nick Jackson, two young wrestlers that represent the west with their stereotypical glitz and glam, but make no mistake about the two are much more than just two pretty boys.

Many of the top teams went into a match against the Young Bucks, thinking they would be able to control them by grounding the brothers, only to find out that it is easier said than done. Matt and Nick has a second level that only the best teams possess, that quality has lead their opponents running out of gas, breathing for air and within moments looking at the ceiling at the bright lights, wandering what went wrong.

This has been the case with so many wrestling tag teams around the world that have tried their hand to keep up with the Young Bucks. For the past several years they have won fans over in great matches at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Chikara, Ring of Honor, Evolve and most recently at New Japan Pro Wrestling capturing the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship by defeating Suzukigun (Taichi and Taka Michinoku).

Tag Team Championship and wrestling on most recently wrestling on IPPV this month for Evolve has the Young Bucks continuing their hot streak and adding more evidence to those that say that they are pro wrestling’s best tag team not with the WWE in 2014.

But is that about to change?

On February 28th and March 1st the Young Bucks have signed to wrestle at St. Louis Anarchy for their biggest shows in SLA History. The weekend is filled with many of the top talents in the Midwest today, mixed in with some of hottest young wrestlers in the world as Eddie Edwards, Davey Richard, Kyle O’ Reilly, Darin Corbin, Gerald James, Jeremy Wyatt, Bolt Brady Davey Vega, Brandon Espinosa and Mat Fitchett will all be in action for this Midwest Supercard.

 photo 0_zps774663b9.jpg

The Young Bucks are set to meet the very popular young SLA tag team of Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett on the first night of the double shot. Vega and Fitchett are two of the young singles wrestlers that have come together to form an exciting team that will match speed vs. speed and heart vs. heart.

The Young Bucks could very well head into the second night of the 2014 SLA Gateway to Anarchy Weekend 0-1.

 photo HH_zps747c618f.jpg

Win or loss on the first night there is a team that is looking to prove to the fans of the Young Bucks that their favorite team has met their match. That team is the Hooligans, Devin and Mason Cutter, ask any wrestler or fans in the Midwest who the best tag team in the area is and the answer is sure to be these two brothers, that have kept tag team wrestling alive. Ranked as the number one tag team in the MWR Coverage area, they are the only tag team to win the MWR Tag Team of the Year Awards twice after being chosen again in 2013.

We caught up with the Hooligans who had this to say on this huge match that is just over a month away “The Young Bucks are a world Traveled tag Team and one of the Best in the World. But in us they face a Hungry team one that wants what they have one that wants to prove they are the best. So in Alton il they best be prepared cause not only do they face The Hooligans They face us with we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

On March 1st, it will be 2 brothers vs. 2 brothers, the Jacksons vs. the Cutters in a war that will be of epic proportions. Not since the West Virginia’s, Hatfield family and Kentucky’s, McCoy’s went to war has there been a more talked about battle in this area.

 photo HOOLIGANS1_zps67d7a13a.jpg

Can the Young Bucks survive the onslaught that the Hooligans are capable of with a combination of, power and the underrated speed that the Cutter Brothers deliver early and often in a match?

The Young Bucks will hope to set up the Hooligans with excellent tag team moves such as the Aided dropkicks, the Crazy Dive, the Stereo 450° splashes Springboard splash (Nick) / standing moonsault (Matt) combination only to finish them with their breathtaking finishers the Early-Onset Alzheimer’s or More Bang for Your Buck (Rolling fireman’s carry slam by Matt followed by a 450° splash by Nick followed by a moonsault by Matt).

The Hooligans though have taught this generation of fans in the Midwest what true tag team wrestling is about by taking them to school as they cut the ring in half with perfect precision. That are masterful by creating chaos and havoc from start to finish that has left their opponents confused and bewildered questioning themselves on what happened after the Hooligans hit them with their own moves the Hooligan Rush and the Hooligan Driver.

The time has come for the Hooligans, will they be able to show the world that they are indeed the most underrated tag team today or will the Young Bucks add them to the list of victims that thought they were up to task to challenge them?

Purchase your tickets today to say that you were part of history when St Louis Anarchy presents Gateway to Anarchy and be ringside for this exciting ride to see the Best of the Midwest meet one of the Best in the World.

Ring of Honor Superstar Kenny King welcomes you to MWR.

Kenny King has been featured on WWE’S Tough Enough, but that moment is sure to be far from the highlight of this young stars career. King initially trained by WWE superstars Al Snow, Bob Holly, Chavo Guerrero and Ivory. In Las Vegas, he got to train with former AWA World champion Nick Bockwinkel and Scott Casey only improving his talent at a rapid speed.

While working on a local show he would go toe to toe with Mike Mizanin, known today simply as The Miz. A short stint but a very educational one was his time at TNA that only would prepare him for where he is today.

Today he is one of the top young tag teams in ROH called The All Night Express, with Rhett Titus. The two would be able to capture a huge victory in St Louis on November 6th against the American Wolves , ROH World Champion Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards in what many fans noted to MWR was the match of the night.

We caught up with the red hot Kenny King and he had this advice to all the wrestling fans around the world.

Oliver Cain defeats Eddie Edwards; one of the best in the world at NWA Supreme.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 29, 2011

The NWA X-Division Champ Oliver Cain was faced with his biggest challenge to date when he was set to defend his title against former Ring of Honor World Champion Eddie Edwards.  In a battle that saw Eddie Edwards chop the living daylights out of the champ from ring post to ring post, the fans were seen shrieking from the sounds of the blows to Cain’s chest.  
 
Midway through the match Oliver Cain was on the ropes, bleeding from the chops and a clothesline that looked to take Cain out of the matchup for good.  Cain  could have easily of given up, a lesser  man would have.
 
 With the heart and dedication of a champion Oliver Cain stepped up his game to show Eddie Edwards why he was the NWA X-division Champion. 
 
With an flying elbow, from the top rope, and some vicious kicks to Edwards the fight was on. Edwards still looked in control  as the match heated up. It would be one mistake from Edwards during the match that would have the fan favorite Cain have hope. As Edwards went  for the pin, Cain hooked a triangle choke on the ROH Starwhile getting his own shoulders off the mat to escape the pin.
 
At first it looked as if Edwards would be able to escape himself but as Cain adjusted his body and put on the pressure, Edwards had no other choice but to tap out to the NWA X-Division Champion.
 
Fans came to their feet as the two men shook hands in middle of the ring.

MWR Trading card #20 Eddie Edwards

By Alyssa Major

We are thrilled to have one of the top wrestlers in the world Eddie Edwards as the twentieth card in the MWR Trading Card Series. Edwards has wrestled around the world and can be seen in R0H on HDnet every Monday Nights.

Having been trained by not only the legendary Killer Kowalski, but the Pro Wrestling NOAH Dojo, Eddie has become a talent that is desired on wrestling shows all over the world since his 2002 debut. While he is most noted for his work in Ring Of Honor, Eddie is known to work for many companies in the New England area, as well as NOAH in Japan.

While he debuted in Ring Of Honor in 2006, Eddie probably gained most notoraity after forming the team of The American Wolves with Davey Richards in 2008. It wasn’t long after their formation that the two captured the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Titles from rivals Kevin Steen and El Generico in April of 2009. The feud continued well into 2009, only to be put to a halt after an “Anything Goes” match with Kevin Steen in Boston, Massachusetts at “The Final Countdown Tour: Boston” on September 25th that resulted in a serious injury for Eddie.

The next night, with his elbow broken, Eddie went on to team with Davey to take on Steen and Generico in a ‘Ladder Wars’ match, retaining their championship. It wouldn’t be until December 19th of that year that Eddie not only made his return to wrestling, but that the Wolves lost their tag belts, being defeated by the Briscoe Brothers.

With feuds against men like Steen & Generico and The Briscoes, the Wolves championship run also led to numerous memorable tag title defenses including a 45 minute draw again Tyler Black and Bryan Danielson now known as “Tag title classic”. While he is widely known as a tag team wrestler, when he captured the first ever Ring Of Honor TV Title, in a tournament that lead him to face his own partner, Eddie was able to show doubters that while he worked good with a partner, he may be even better on his own.
