2016 MWR Wrestler of the Year – Mike Outlaw / Dez Wellston

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 16, 2017

1Mike Outlaw continued his rise to be one of the top young talents in the Midwest in 2016 by seeking out the toughest competition he could find. Starting the year off Outlaw challenged Brandon Espinosa in a hard core match before setting his sights to St. Louis Anarchy. Though Outlaw would struggle in the win department at SLA, he quickly earned the respect and love of their passionate fan base.

 

He would team up with Justin D’Air in a tag team classic at High Risk Wrestling against the Riegel Twins (Logan & Sterling) for the vacated Tag Team Championship. Due to the loss, the two friends quickly became enemies that were set for a brutal ending later in the year.

 

 

Outlaw, a former Dynamo Pro Wrestling Champion would set his sights on regaining the title against his archrival Jake Dirden. During this time he entered the WLW Jr. Championship tournament, losing to Jayden Fenix, who would go on to lose to Jon Webb in the finals.

In June, Outlaw would enter the High Risk Wrestling Mayhem tournament defeating Jake Dirden in the first round. In the triple threat finals, Outlaw won the championship over former PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins and Kiyoshi Shizuka.

In July, he challenged MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa at MMWA in a hard fought contest, just coming up short. Two weekends later, Outlaw earned the biggest win of his young career when he pinned Ring of Honor superstar Delirious. In August, Outlaw, would add his second Dynamo Pro Wrestling title to his resume by defeating Jake Dirden. A title he would hold until December when Brandon Aarons. Outlaw would end the year losing a thrilling last man standing match against D’air at High Risk Wrestling.

Outlaw would wrestle throughout the Midwest for Dynamo Pro, Saint Louis Anarchy, PWCS, MMWA, Proving Ground, WIA, New Breed Pro, Metro Pro, High Risk Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Resurgence . He would have killer matches with the likes of Davey Vega, Gary Jay and fellow young star Kevin Lee Davidson. His hard work would pay off as he now heads into 2017 as a full time NWL contracted superstar, now named Dez Wellston.

Espinosa Strikes at Dirden- Cruz III , The Professionals Upset High Level Enterprise

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 17, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Photos Brian Kelley

“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs vs. “Young & Dangerous” Evan Morris: This stemmed from Morris’ turn last weekend as he named Shorty as one of the guys who “held him back” in the days of Metro East Championship Wrestling. Morris entered with Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby by his side, so Shorty was accompanied by D-1 Champion Outtkast who ran them off…so that left the match as a one-on-one bout as it should have been.
DPWAPRIL-1

DPWAPRIL-2

DPWAPRIL-3

After a competitive matchup, referee Patrick Hook was knocked down(the start of a rough night for him) and Morris brought a chair into the ring. Shorty got the chair away from Morris, but saw the referee was recovering and threw the weapon back to Morris, pretending he had been hit with it. Morris confronted the official and protested that he hadn’t hit Shorty with the chair, but Shorty rendered the point moot by rolling up Morris for the pin in 9:59.

DPWAPRIL-4

“The Valedictorian” Keon Option, Justin D’Air, & “The Millenial” Danny Adams vs. Brandon Espinosa, “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga, & Da’Marius Jones.
DPWAPRIL-5

DPWAPRIL-6

DPWAPRIL-7

DPWAPRIL-8

 

This was a fast-paced encounter that got a lot of time; the highlight move of the match was D’Air delivering an insane senton off the top rope onto a bunch of opponents on the floor! The finish saw the referee checking on the humanity outside the ring, totally missing Espinosa delivering a low blow on D’Air. After that, the brainbuster was academic and Espy got the win in 15:26.

Rocket Mapache vs. “The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher: Gallagher had another ringside confrontation with Sadie Blaze as their ongoing issue continues; Blaze has been particularly sensitive about Gallagher’s disrespect regarding Rocket’s mask.
3

Gallagher actually stole Rocket’s mask a few months ago, but Rocket reclaimed it with help from his Bite Club partner Jackal.
DPWAPRIL-9

Rocket was motivated in this matchup, but Gallagher kept using underhanded tactics and was obsessed with trying to remove the mask. That drew the ire of Blaze in the audience and Gallagher got sidetracked by his war of words with his former mentor.

DPWAPRIL-10

 

That allowed Rocket to surprise Gallagher with a crossface chicken wing out of nowhere for the tapout in 6:28…but Gallagher attacked Rocket from behind and went for his mask again. Sadie had finally seen enough and jumped in the ring to confront Gallagher directly…he kicked him in the midsection before delivering a double-underhook suplex to send Gallagher into retreat move.

DPWAPRIL-11

Sadie got the microphone and told Gallagher that he had a friend who knew a thing or two about masks in wrestling…a “Wind Of Destruction” was coming his way. It looks like we may be seeing the return of Makaze in the near future.

DPWAPRIL-13

DPWAPRIL-14

Jackal vs. C.J. Shine: Shine danced his way through his ring entrance and got a good reaction from the fans, but he wasn’t likely to beat out the longtime favorite Jackal in the popularity department. Shine had a competitive showing, one of his best to date, but Jackal picked up the victory with a frog splash in 5:55.

Mike Outlaw vs. Brandon Aarons: This promised to be a competitive battle between two of the top-ranked wrestlers in the Midwest. While it was a battle of fan favorites, Outlaw made some uncharacteristic moves such as attempting a pinfall with a single knee on the chest. Considering his change of attitude in alternate universes, I wonder if that’ll influence his character under the Dynamo banner?
DPWAPRIL-15

DPWAPRIL-16

DPWAPRIL-17

DPWAPRIL-18

The match could have easily gone either way and Aarons appeared to have the momentum in his favor, but recent rival Kevin Lee Davidson made his way to ringside. That distracted Aarons as he ascended the turnbuckles, giving Outlaw enough time to roll out of the way of the incoming double-stomp from the top rope. Outlaw delivered the Mafia Kick and that was enough to edge out the win in 9:24…despite the outside influence on the result, the two shook hands after the match was over.

High Level Enterprise (Jack Gamble & Jon Webb) vs. The Professionals (Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby) for the Tag Team Titles: On the heels of retiring Eric Allen at the previous week’s Wood River show, Santel & McDarby finally had their shot at the belts.
DPWAPRIL-19

DPWAPRIL-20

DPWAPRIL-21

DPWAPRIL-22

DPWAPRIL-23

They were really good foils for the flashier style employed by Gamble & Webb; I would compared them to NXT duos like Wesley Blake/Buddy Murphy and Scott Dawson/Dash Wilder in that regard. While it looked like the champs were on their way to another successful title defense, the official was knocked down…this was just NOT Patrick Hook’s night.

Santel brought the shillelagh into play and, despite a near-miscue, managed to coldcock Webb with the weapon. That brought Gamble to the rescue, but the rulebook was out the window with the referee down and out.
DPWAPRIL-24

Gamble got a hold of the weapon and hit Santel with it, but McDarby had a backup plan: Brass knuckles!
DPWAPRIL-25

DPWAPRIL-26

DPWAPRIL-27

DPWAPRIL-28

DPWAPRIL-29

He took Gamble out of the game with the knucks, then dragged the dazed Webb to his feet for a totally graituitous shot with the knuckles. 1-2-3 and we had NEWWWWW Tag Team Champions in 8:48! The titleholders took some time to gloat, then ran like the proverbial thieves in the night when Gamble & Webb gave chase…tremendous.

DPWAPRIL-31

DPWAPRIL-32

Outtkast vs. Kevin Lee Davidson for the D-1 Title: K.L.D. had been impressive and just got back from a successful tour of Europe. He’s held titles in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance and is the current Heavyweight Champion of Wrestling Invades America. Outtkast had to go aerial a bit more than usual due to the size difference, including his corkscrew moonsault dive from the top rope to the floor. He had trouble hitting his signature moves, though he did manage to deliver the Lost Cause (fireman’s-carry spinebuster) for a near-fall. K.L.D. nearly won a few times, but his second attempt at a corner cannonball missed the mark and Outtkast rolled him up for the pin in 9:24.

DPWAPRIL-30

I’m sure there will be another day for the big man…

DPWAPRIL-33

DPWAPRIL-34

“Dirdey” Jake Dirden vs. “The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz for the Dynamo Pro and MWR Missouri Heavyweight Title. This didn’t take long to get out of hand as they fought out of the ring and brawled all over the building…Dirden rammed Ricky’s head into the wall and left a hole! They fought toward the merchandise tables and Cruz threw Dirden over the main table…thankfully they more or less spared the MWR table and my fries and soda.

DPWAPRIL-35

DPWAPRIL-36

DPWAPRIL-37

DPWAPRIL-38

They eventually made it back to the ring as the referee allowed some leeway, but Brandon Espinosa decided to get a closer look at the action…and both title belts at ringside. The fight spilled out of the ring AGAIN, leading to Cruz decking Espy when Dirden moved out of the way. The fight continued and both guys traded signature moves…Cruz hit the Cruz Control(swinging fisherman buster), but Espy pulled the ref out of the ring.

DPWAPRIL-39

 

The ref called it a DQ win for Cruz in 13:36…but things were far from over between these three. Dirden gloated that Cruz would NEVER get another shot at his title…and Espy added injury to insult by attacking Ricky from behind with a chair.

DPWAPRIL-40

DPWAPRIL-41

After all of that,Cruz declared that if Dirden wouldn’t give him a title shot, he may just have to make sure Dirden doesn’t hold the title for much longer.

Brandon, thank you for joining us a Missouri Wrestling Revival as you prepare for quite possible your biggest night in wrestling this Saturday in Pontoon Beach, Illinois for Pro Wrestling Epic.

1) You began your training at the Dynamo Pro Wrestling gym under the watchful eye of one of the very best wrestlers in this era, Dingo. I know you have a lot of respect for your time with Dynamo and Dingo, please explain how that came to be?

Brandon: Back in the early 2000’s I attended Gateway Championship Wrestling Shows with my father and brother (who are also huge fans of pro wrestling) in the summer of 2006 I had the opportunity to take part in a 3 day seminar with Dingo, Kory Twist, and Cameron Cage. Being that I was only 16 years old at the time I had to get my parents to sign a release form for me, not only did they sign it, but my father actually signed up for the seminar and participated with me. Eventually GCW went out of business and I continued my training under Dingo until in late 2007 when the Dynamo Pro Wrestling Gym opened. The promoters for NWA: Central States Missouri were also the owners of the Dynamo Gym and eventually NWA:CSMO became Dynamo Pro Wrestling. It was quite in experience for me all around, I didn’t have many friends growing up that were into the whole wrestling scene so when I was at the Dynamo gym training with the guys not only did I not feel like I was an outcast, I felt like I was among friends and family.

 photo 3673307706_090ff1950a_zpswailiw73.jpg

That environment really helped me not only to want to stick it out through the brutal training sessions and the constant ribbing from the older guys, but it gave me an appreciation for how this business works. Dingo was a huge influence on me when I first started and he would even drive me to training and shows just so I could be apart of it all. He always stuck his neck out for his students, all he asked was that we gave everything we had, as he was putting his name on us and he didn’t want to be embarrassed. I am forever grateful to Dynamo and Dingo for everything I learned coming up, it helped me become not only wrestler I am and will become but the 25 year old man I am today.

2) It has been awhile since we last saw Dingo in action full time, for those that may just are becoming a fan of wrestling in the MWR coverage area and may not have seen him in action, how would you describe your former trainer?

Brandon: Dingo was tough as nails, I’ve seen a lot of tough guys over the years, but he was definitely one of the toughest and most intense wrestlers I’ve seen especially in this area. He was very technical and very smooth in the ring, he had a certain flow to him that you just don’t see anymore. It’s very unfortunate that he is not around anymore, he was one of those guys that had “it”.

3) What was your training like under Dingo and what do you remember from your very first match?

Brandon: His training was very particular, he paid attention to all the minor details. If you did something half-ass he would make you do it over and over and over and over again until you stopped screwing up. He was a hard ass, but also understanding. He never talked down to anyone but wasn’t afraid to tell you if something you did was horrible. To this day I still carry some valuable lessons he taught me over the years and I hope to one day pass them on.

My first match was against Adam Rich at an LWA event in Mehlville, MO in August of 2007. We were technically the dark match, I wore my eyeliner which my little sister applied on me backstage (don’t bring your little sister backstage to a wrestling show) and a cut off shirt because I thought I was fat, haha which now I laugh about. Adam and I had what I would call a pretty great first match. Like it wasn’t amazing, but hell for a first match I felt like it was pretty ok. Well, I also slipped on the top rope at the end of the match but that’s not important 

4) Early on you found success as a member of B.A.B.E. Watch with 2 members that would go on in their careers to win the MWR Wrestler of the Year in singles action, none other than Brandon Espinosa and Mike Sydal. What was the highlight of that team in your eyes and what did you lessons did you take from that experience?

 photo ba5_zpss61bh6iv.jpg

Brandon: Espy and Sydal are two phenomenal talents here in the Midwest and dare I say the country. Both guys have taken the time to perfect their craft and it shows by the top tier matches they compete in on a consistent basis. I think as a trio our biggest highlight was at an LWA Event in 2009 when the three of us faced off against The Northstar Express & Arik Cannon. That was also the night Espy left the group. Some of my favorite memories of teaming with Espy were our segments and matches at High Voltage Wrestling. Keny G was great and pretty much let us do our thing and I had the time of my life. When it comes to Mike Sydal and I, the biggest highlight would have to be when we defeated the Hooligans for the LWA Tag Team Titles. I never felt like B.A.B.E.WATCH really peaked as a whole, but we all started doing well for ourselves as singles wrestlers and there was no point in holding each other back. Those two guys will always have special places in not just my wrestling career, but my heart.

 photo bRandon Aarons_zpseso3xaqj.jpg

5) From there, you did not slow down as you went on to find success in singles competition as you took to take on the very best in the Midwest, including Jeremy Wyatt, Mark Sterling and a man that would become the NWA World Champion, Kahagas. How hard was the transition from tag team action to trying to survive at such a young age against some of the best in the sport?

Brandon: It was awesome because the guys you just mentioned are not only some of the best wrestlers in The United States, but they are incredible wrestlers to learn from. Wrestling Kahagas was great for me because he was one of the first veterans I had the chance to get in the ring with and really learn from. Over the years Ive had the privilege to wrestle Wyatt and Sterling on more than one occasion and every time I take away more knowledge from them and apply it to myself. The transition overall wasn’t difficult, but I learned to expect more from myself in the ring because now it was just me every time go to the ring.

6) You were instrumental in the success of Independent Hardcore Wrestling that was based in Illinois where you really came into your own. The fans really rallied around you as many wrestlers looked to make a name for themselves in a new promotion. Though the promotion did not last long, the crowds were red hot from top to bottom, what do you see as your highlight in the company that’s saw you feud with the likes of Eric Allen, Steven Kennedy, Sean Vincent, KC Karrington and Cameron Cage?

 photo ba4_zps62r7vfkf.jpg

Brandon Aarons and IHW found success with the fundraiser for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

 

Brandon: I think the highlight for me was just someone giving me the chance to show what I could do when the handcuffs are off. Winning the IHW Title the first time was huge because after that I held 3 other titles for 3 different companies besides IHW. I felt like I was starting to get noticed, to get my name out there more than ever. One of my personal favorite matches was against KC Karrington back in 2011. I don’t think Ive ever jelled with someone so well in a match before and to me that was the match where I told myself I never wanted to quit wrestling no matter how tough life got for me or how hard it was going to be to make it in this business. Unfortunately, a few months later I was sidelined with injuries and soon after IHW ceased operations.

 photo 1 Brandon Aarons lands a direct hit on KC Karrington_zpsoultlfed.jpg

KC Karrington just felt the swift kick from Brandon Aarons.

 

 

7) MWR has covered Pro Wrestling Epic in the past, including the Epic 8 Tournament when it was based out of Lincoln, Illinois. This tournament is under new management, but the Epic 8 tournament survives and fans in the St. Louis area will be able to see this historic tournament in Pontoon Beach this Saturday. Fans may be surprised to know that during your time as a former PWE US Champion you were challenged by the then Ring of Honor World Champion Tyler Black (WWE’S Seth Rollins). You were able to get the win via DQ, as well as a handshake from a man that I stated in the recap on this site who I felt was the best wrestler in the world, and I feel that holds even more weight today. I was thankfully on hand to cover the event in person, yet I ask you what do you recall from that historic match in your career?

 photo 0_zpsmwmdwoj8.jpg

Brandon: That was without a doubt the biggest, most humbling experience I have ever had in Professional Wrestling. I learned so much about myself and also what it will really take to get to the next level. The match itself isn’t what stands out to me when I think about it, I was 20 years old, some young kid one the indies trying to make a name for himself going up against a guy who was regarded as the best in the world, what stands out to me is he gave me a chance, he let me work hard, and he worked hard for me in return. I’ll never forget that.

8) At that point you were one of the hottest young stars in the sport, that is until an injury took you out of action for a whole calendar year. I covered your return match against the current MWR Wrestler of the Year, Ricky Cruz at Dynamo Pro Wrestling. I know you have never back down from a challenge, but that first match back was rough as the “King of Chaos” took advantage of your ring rust. Thankfully, in the past 6 months I can tell that you were hitting your stride as 2015 has come upon us. What was it like to sit back and watch others move up the ladder?

Brandon: It pissed me off. It made me feel worthless. It gave me a dose of reality that once you’re gone, not a lot of people give a shit. You have to always keep yourself current in whatever you do. You have to refuse to fall to the back of the pack. If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse. I told myself if I came back I would do it with the goal of never giving up until I’ve done what I set out to do when I was some 16 year old kid, and that is to let every single person know who I am. This is me pushing myself, stepping on toes, doing what is best for me and my career. A lot of people don’t realize how selfish this business is, but I do.

9) You recently won the 2015 Sexiest Male of the Year based on the most votes by the fans over Valentines weekend. Your MWR Trading card #15 states on the back that it is a FACT that when you enter the ring ,“GIRLS GO CRAZY”.

 photo brandona_zpsf8ls769f.jpg

I hate to be the one to ask ,but since then we have received tons of letters from girls wanting to know if you are single, and what’s the best strategy for them to get a date with you?

Brandon: That is a FANTASTIC question. I actually am single at the moment, unfortunately I’m not really looking. Wrestling is amazing in so many different ways, unfortunately it doesn’t make the best business to have a relationship in. If I was to take the time to find a girl she would need a certain set of skills: She would need to be fit (health is a priority), she needs to be trustworthy (no easy girls), she needs to be patient (my schedule gets crazy), she needs to trust me (don’t hack into my fb/email), and she needs to be funny, none of this boring and annoying stuff I get all the time. Also don’t stalk me. I get that enough. Lastly but certainly not least, you need have great hair, odds are we will be sharing hair products 

10) By winning the MWR Sexiest Male award as well as coming off the huge main event during the last PWE in Pontoon Beach you will now have a target on your back as you look to make history.

Now I ask you to please tell the MWR fans why they should make their way to see this exciting night of action on Saturday.

Brandon: This past year I have been pushing myself in the gym, and in the ring to show everyone why they need to keeps their eyes on me. This Saturday I am going to show everyone why they’ve been needing to keep their eyes on me, and continue to do so. I promise a performance from myself that no one has seen before. I want the standard in Midwest Wrestling to be higher than it has ever been. I want to be the person that helps raise it up. The show this saturday means more to me than anyone can ever imagine. Everything I’ve gone through the past few years with injuries, relationships, friendships, all my personal issues, it all leads to this Saturday Night in Pontoon Beach, Illinois where I’ll show up and give the greatest performance of my professional wrestling career.

Michael Elgin is one of pro wrestling’ most feared wrestlers in the world today. The MECW Champion Eric Allen got the message loud and clear after his epic match against the Ring of Honor star.  Allen would get the win with a jack knife roll up, but the war was won by Elgin when he delivered  3 powerbombs onto the MECW Championship belt.

The effects have been felt since as Allen has been in the hospital ever since.

MWR visited Allen in the hospital this past weekend and he had this to say to his fans.

“Been silent for awhile. After my the match with Michael Elgin I was attacked and powerbombed multiple times . I’ve been in severe pain since then and have actually thought about leaving wrestling for good due to the amount of pain I’m in. My anger unfortunately will not allow me to walk away. I will have revenge for what he did to me. Allen vs Elgin 2 will happen!!!”

MECW returns on March 23rd!

Eric Allen is now the hunted this Saturday when Ring of Honor superstar Michael Elgin looks to destroy the hometown favorite in front of a capacity crowd.

Less than two weeks ago Wood River, Illinois was rockin’ when Allen met the former ROH World Champion Davey Richards, in the biggest house of the company that has proclaimed 2013 the year of MECW.

This coming weekend the card is once again stacked as Davey Richards returns to meet the “Shogun” Chris L.O.G.A.N.
Can L.O.G.A.N withstand the onslaught of one of pro wrestling’s fiercest strikers?

Also on tap will be two former MWR Wrestler of the Years, Mark Sterling and Mike Sydal in a four way match that will also feature Sir Bradley Charles and ROH Star Kyle O’Reilly.

Buddy Roberts Jr. will be put to the test when he goes one on one against Tony Kozina.

Plus Mauler McDarby will try to offset the power of JOEY.

This and much more this Saturday night when MECW returns to WoodRiver, Illinois at the Knights of Columbus Hall.
