Lumberjacks, a Cage and FirePup in Swansea

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 15, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Our ring announcer was Drew Abbenhaus; your referees were Denny Thomas, Jay King, and Nick Ridenour.

A local young lady sang the National Anthem to start the show…nicely done. Promoter Herb Simmons acknowledged the many sponsors and supporters of SICW as well as the Swansea Fire Department prior to the show’s opening matchup.

nbwoctnl-5

Moondog Rover vs. Waco(w/ Big Daddy): Moondog OVAH remains one of the most popular competitors in the area.
nbwoctnl-16

Big Daddy’s main charge Vic The Bruiser has been gaining momentum, picking up a recent win over Sean Vincent and being scheduled to face Gary Jackson at the next East Carondelet show.

nbwoctnl-24

nbwoctnl-20

This was your standard-issue Moondog match, but Waco got the cheap rollup pin with a handful of denim in 6:57.

nbwoctnl-36

Larry Matysik paid a visit to say a few words to the fans in attendance. I shook his hand as he was leaving…unfortunately, I’ve only had a handful of opportunities to converse with Larry. If I’d remembered the raffle for a steak dinner with Larry and Herb, I would have brought more cash than I did…

nbwoctnl-49

Big Jim Hoffarth vs. “The Suplex Cyclone” Curt Gannon: Gannon recently made his St. Louis-area debut with a time-limit draw against Superstar Steve Fender in East Carondelet; this was my first time seeing him in person. He was able to execute a couple of very impressive suplexes on the 300-plus-pounder, living up to his nickname.

nbwoctnl-62

nbwoctnl-63

At one point Hoffarth accidentally threw Gannon over the top rope and the referee didn’t call for a disqualification…whoops. At any rate, Hoffarth rallied but missed a big splash off the second rope…Gannon took advantage with a hold called the Arachnid Clutch(a trapped-arm headscissors on the mat).
nbwoctnl-74

Not sure if it was a tapout or unconscious “submission”, but that was the ballgame in 7:02…slight upset there.

nbwoctnl-82

nbwoctnl-94

Flaming Freddie Fury vs. Purple Passion: THE REMATCH TO END ALL REMATCHES~! Fury and Passion entered together, but Herb told them that they were facing each other.

They did do more actual wrestling this time around, as opposed to going full comedy as they did in their previous bout.

nbwoctnl-106
This match also had an actual finish, as Passion won with a Fameasser in 5:51.

“Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. “The” Ace Hawkins: Hawkins was particularly insistent about the ring announcement, especially the pronunciation of his nickname(“THEE”).

nbwoctnl-122

nbwoctnl-126

nbwoctnl-140

nbwoctnl-142

Gunner had a size and power advantage(as one heckling fan noted to Ace: “Why are you so tiny?”), but Ace used his speed and agility to gain an advantage. Gunner had a strong effort, but Ace rolled up him with feet on the ropes for the cheap win in 9:30.

nbwoctnl-149

nbwoctnl-152

nbwoctnl-173

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent vs. “Unstable” Dave Vaughn: These two have feuded for the past several months; Vaughn has been intent on turning Vincent into a “villain” again. The match was pretty good despite a few sloppy spots; Vincent just barely got Vaughn up and over for a backdrop in the early minutes of the match.
nbwoctnl-170

These two have worked together enough times that they’re familiar with each other(SCOUTING~!); Vincent picked up the victory after a Death Valley Driver in 11:01.

nbwoctnl-179

“Ironman” Ken Kasa vs. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde(w/ Wyldefyre), Lumberjack Match: The Swansea firefighters were the lumberjacks and made their entrance to “Proud To Be An American”. It took some time for them to get their cue…I had to make the wisecrack that, per Ben Simon, they were waiting for the beat to drop.
nbwoctnl-192

nbwoctnl-197

Wylde tried to walk away from the match, only to be blocked by the mascot Firepup and carried back to the ring by the firefighters. In terms of working for its intended purpose, I would consider this the best match of the night; Wyldefyre got another “Shiny Pants Has No Butt” chant, if I remember correctly.
nbwoctnl-200

nbwoctnl-225

nbwoctnl-234

nbwoctnl-228

nbwoctnl-239

Wyldefyre tried to interfere and a firefighter carried her away from ringside on his shoulders…hey, we just saw a fireman’s carry by an actual fireman! *ducks thrown objects* Firepup blinded Wylde with a fire extinguisher and Kasa capitalized with the John Wu Dropkick to win in 10:37…nicely done.

nbwoctnl-242

Classic Champion Ron Powers & “Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Attila Khan & Brandon Espinosa(w/ Travis Cook), best-of-three-falls cage match: This was a brawl from start to finish; Khan was left bloody, as has become tradition.

The match seemed rushed from my perspective, but the fans liked it and that’s what counted. Khan pinned Jackson after hitting him in the throat with his fork in 3:24. Jackson gave him a taste of his own medicine with a throat shot with the fork, pinning Khan to even the score in 5:10(total).
nbwoctnl-256

nbwoctnl-258

nbwoctnl-261

nbwoctnl-270

(Everyone’s favorite domestic terrorist Travis had the chutzpah to complain about Jackson’s use of the foreign object.) Espy scaled the cage to deliver a cross-bodyblock onto Powers & Jackson. (The cage wasn’t particularly tall compared to those in bigger promotions, but it was still a cool visual.) Travis threw a chair into the cage and decked the official on the arena floor, leading to Espinosa using it to clean house; however, he couldn’t score the deciding fall on either opponent. Khan picked up Jackson for a bodyslam, but fell over Powers in a schoolboy trip and Powers dropped an elbow on Khan for the final fall in 8:30(total); all right then. Powers defends against Espinosa at the East Carondelet show on the 19th…that should be a very interesting bout.

nbwoctnl-279

nbwoctnl-281

(EDIT 11/13: The TV show reminded me of more details from the bout; Travis actually entered the cage after striking referee Jay King in an attempt to interfere, then tried to get Espy out of the cage for the win only to find out that escaping the cage wasn’t an official way to win…heh.)

Battle Lines Drawn: Powers Under Fire From All Sides

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 7, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer
Photos Brian Kelley

Promoter Herb Simmons started the show by acknowledging the recent passings of Gypsy Joe and Muhammad Ali. Gypsy Joe was a bit before my time, but he had in-ring wars in his later years against such opponents as New Jack and Necro Butcher. Quite a few of the wilder rasslin stories in history involve the name of Gypsy Joe, to say the least. Herb also noted that it was the birthday of the late Bruiser Brody, segueing into the ten-bell salute.

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent vs. Britton Tucker: Tucker is not well-liked in East Carondelet; one female fan was particularly irate about Tucker’s mere presence and Tucker promised to take her out to Olive Garden after the show. Bwahahaha.
sicwlr-1

sicwlr-2

sicwlr-3

sicwlr-4

They had a solid opener and Vincent appeared to be on the verge of winning with his Mapleleaf Leglock, but “Unstable” Dave Vaughn entered the ring and blatantly attacked TUCKER…thus getting Vincent disqualified in 7:44. Har har. Afterwards, Vincent reaffirmed that Vaughn would not turn him back into a “villain” as he insisted he would.

sicwlr-5

sicwlr-6

sicwlr-7

“The Fury” Jason Vaughn vs. “The Incredible” Matt Kenway (Look At Him): We have two guys in SICW with the last name of Vaughn…cue the MARKET CONFUSION~! Kenway was substituting for Ax Allwardt(Vaughn’s scheduled opponent).

sicwlr-8

Vaughn’s two young children were in attendance and were VERY vocal in their support of their father. Kenway did a good job in the rulebreaking role and targeted Vaughn’s arm, but Vaughn made El Big Comeback and got the figure-four leglock out of nowhere for the submission in 6:08.

Bobby D vs. “Unstable” Dave Vaughn: Vaughn’s transition into Heath Ledger Joker continues with the similar hair and the eye makeup. Vaughn controlled most of the matchup, but had trouble putting D away and went for a chair.
sicwlr-9

sicwlr-10

sicwlr-11

sicwlr-12

sicwlr-13

That brought out Vincent to confiscate the weapon, leading to Bobby D getting the rollup pin on a distracted Vaughn in 5:14. Vaughn didn’t seem too upset about the loss, laughing about how Vincent’s interference proved that he truly was reverting to his old ways…more on this as it develops.

sicwlr-14

sicwlr-15

Flaming Freddie Fury vs. Purple Passion: WHEN EFFEMINATE MASKED WRESTLERS COLLIDE~! The fans in attendance had no idea what to make of this encounter, though I heard several people call out “This isn’t wrestling!”

sicwlr-16

The two ended up falling into 69 position on the ring apron and both were counted out in 5:43. The two literally left arm-in-arm.

sicwlr-17

“Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. Brandon Espinosa(w/ Travis Cook): . Travis started out by loudly complaining about the previous match, asking if Vince Russo had booked it. Espinosa followed suit, continuing his mindset that he’s above everyone else in the promotion by insulting several members of the locker room…that included his scheduled opponent for the evening.

sicwlr-18

sicwlr-19

sicwlr-20

sicwlr-21

This was a solid matchup with Gunner doing better than I would have expected. At any rate, Espy got the cross-armbreaker out of nowhere for the tapout in 7:18.

Big Jim Hoffarth vs. Bubba Troll(w/ Big Daddy): Hoffarth won last month’s Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal and Troll was the last man eliminated, so Troll obviously wanted some payback in this battle of super heavyweights. I jokingly throw around “#ClubbingForearms” at times like this, but it’s not like we’re gonna see a lucha-style match out of these guys. I’m often told that casual fans would rather see a “fight” than a “wrestling match”, at any rate.

sicwlr-22

sicwlr-23

sicwlr-24

sicwlr-25

sicwlr-26

sicwlr-27

In a slight surprise, Troll got the win after a splash off the second rope in 8:30…Drew tried to get a word with Hoffarth afterwards, but he wasn’t feeling up to an interview after BEING SPLASHED FROM THE SECOND ROPE BY A LARGE OPPONENT. Timing, Drew.

sicwlr-50

sicwlr-51

sicwlr-52

“Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson & “Ironman” Ken Kasa vs. “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook), “St. Louis Handicap Match”: Hargas & Espinosa defeated Kasa in this style of match in May, so Hargas wanted to prove that he could do what Kasa couldn’t. The match had a fifteen-minute limit and the tag team would win if the single wrestler couldn’t win a decision in that time frame. Kasa wanted to fight on his own and asked Gary to stay outside the ring…so the match was basically a singles bout with Gary doing his beset to thwart interference attempts by Travis Cook.
sicwlr-53

sicwlr-54

sicwlr-55

sicwlr-56

Travis was able to get involved enough that the referee was distracted after Kasa delivered the John Wu Dropkick…at that moment, Jackson chased Travis back to the dressing room area. Kasa locked on a version of the rear naked choke as the time limit ticked down, but Hargas didn’t tap out until RIGHT after the closing bell sounded at 15:00. Technically Jackson & Kasa won the match, but Kasa wanted a decisive victory…so the July show will feature a thirty-minute Ironman Match between Kasa and Hargas. Goodie.

sicwlr-57

sicwlr-58

sicwlr-59

sicwlr-60

sicwlr-61

sicwlr-62

sicwlr-63

Johnny Blade vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook): Blade returned to the St. Louis area fairly recently after previously being a regular for both SICW and the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance. Kahagas won with a pumphandle Michinoku Driver in 5:54.

sicwlr-64

sicwlr-65

sicwlr-66

Ron Powers vs. Attila Khan for the Classic Title, Travis Cook Banned From Ringside: The past two months of Wrestling Explosion have attempted to compare this rivalry to Bruiser Brody vs. Abdullah The Butcher, as Powers is a protege of the late Brody and Khan has a similar style to the “Madman From The Sudan”. This wasn’t a technical classic and wasn’t expected to be…Khan played that popular Memphis game of “Where Oh Where Could The Foreign Object Be?” Hey, it ticks off the fans and that’s what counts for a rulebreaker. Ron had control when the rulebreakers’ locker room essentially emptied on Khan’s behalf to cause the DQ in 3:53. It started with Bubba Troll, then continued with Brandon Espinosa, Chris Hargas, and Kahagas with Big Daddy attempting to direct traffic.
sicwlr-67

sicwlr-68

sicwlr-70

sicwlr-69

It took a while for the fan favorites’ locker room to get the memo, but finally Ken Kasa and Gary Jackson hit the ring to help. Once they brought chairs into the fray, the rulebreakers backed off…that wrapped up the show.

A.J. & Da’Marius Wreak Havoc At South Broadway

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 27, 2016

mmwamarch-1

The show started with a ten-bell salute for Mike Flowers; he competed as part of the legendary Moondogs as Moondog Puppy Love and apparently competed as the second Moondog Rex as well.

mmwamarch-2

mmwamarch-4

mmwamarch-3

J-Mal Swagg vs. Brandon Aarons vs. “Infamous” Tyler Copeland vs. Varik Morgan for the Jr. Heavyweight Title: Aarons and Copeland brought their PWE/WIA feud to MMWA last month, but their contenders’ match ended in a no-contest when A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones attacked both men. That led to an impromptu tag match, but Copeland walked out on Aarons and left him to lose. The match was relatively short with Aarons primarily pairing off with Copeland while Swagg fought with Morgan. It was good while it lasted; Aarons pinned Copeland in 6:48 after a half-nelson suplex…I understand that’s called the “Hairflip Suplex”.

mmwamarch-5

We have a NEWWWWW MMWA Jr. Heavyweight Champion, though Swagg will probably want a rematch after not being pinned/made to submit.

Battle Royal: The show featured two battle royals with the winners facing each other later in the night for a shot at the Heavyweight Title. As is often the case when MMWA does multiple battle royals, a lot of the same guys were in both. The first battle royal had thirteen participants…eleven were introduced, but Swagg assisted a still-hurting Copeland to the ring and they were both late entries. The rest of the field was Brandon Espinosa, Clownman Jacko, “Wildchild” Billy Diamond, Mike Outlaw(making his MMWA debut), Tag Team Champion Prince Moses, “Black Panther” Johnathan Zulu, Flaming Freddie Fury, the debuting Matt Kenway, C.J. Shine, “The Millenial” Danny Adams, and Varik Morgan(who had a really long night).
mmwamarch-6

mmwamarch-7

 

Copeland was quickly eliminated by Zulu, followed by Jacko(by Diamond and Morgan with Espy assisting from the floor) and Swagg(by Adams)). I didn’t quite catch when Diamond went out and neither did MMWA Ring Announcer Ben Simon, but I saw him leave ringside around this time(reviewing the video, Fury threw him out). From there it was Fury (by Espy & Zulu), Adams(by Shine), Zulu(by Outlaw), Shine(by Espy & Kenway), Kenway (by Espy), and Moses (by Espy Awesome-Bombing him over the top rope onto several wrestlers!).

mmwamarch-8

Outlaw eliminated Espinosa in another nod to history in other promotions, but Morgan managed to eliminate Outlaw for the win in 5:02.

mmwamarch-9

The Family (Prince Moses & Damion Cortess) vs. A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones for the Tag Team Titles: Moses & Cortess upset The Eternals(Espinosa & Ace Hawkins) for the belts in February; Williams & Jones earned this shot with their win over the dysfunctional duo of Aarons & Copeland.
mmwamarch-10

mmwamarch-11

It felt like the first part of a series between the two teams; Cortess is being eased into action by being part of a tag team. They had a good match going, but it ended out nowhere; Jones and Cortess were fighting in the ring while Williams and Moses brawled on the floor, but the referee counted out the legal men and it led to a double countout in 11:31. Williams & Jones dished out some post-match abuse, tying up Cortess in the ropes and beating down Moses; Jones spraypainted “2.0” on Moses’ back before Baracus arrived to run them off.

Battle Royal: This was an eleven-man battle royal with Morgan removed due to his earlier win and Moses out due to the beatdown in the previous match; “The Enforcer” Jimmy D was in place of Flaming Freddie Fury. Williams & Jones(who had not been signed to participate in the battle royals due to their other championship opportunity) tried to storm the match but were held back by officials.

mmwamarch-12

Eliminations: Jacko by Espy, Kenway by Adams, Copeland by Outlaw, Diamond by Jimmy D, Shine by Adams, Jimmy D by Swagg(with an assist from Diamond on the floor),
mmwamarch-13

mmwamarch-14

mmwamarch-15

Low blow by Brandon Espinosa

Swagg by Adams, Zulu by Outlaw, Outlaw by Adams. That left Adams and Espinosa…Espy showed impressive strength by catching Adams in mid-aerial move before eliminating him in a brisk 3:27.

Varik Morgan vs. Brandon Espinosa: I’ve been impressed by Morgan’s recent outings. Drew Abbenhaus compared him to Sami Zayn…it was probably the red hair.

mmwamarch-16

mmwamarch-17

mmwamarch-18

mmwamarch-19

mmwamarch-30

Espy knocked Morgan off the top rope to start the match and immediately focused on the arm to build to the cross-armbreaker. Williams & Jones AGAIN tried to raise a ruckus, giving Espy the opportunity to use a chair behind the referees’ backs. The ensuing pin attempt was a bit confusing as it looked like Espy got the pin, but the fall was seemingly waved off by Commissioner Jim Harris due to him seeing the illegal weapon usage. The match continued with Morgan surviving Espy’s best offense, even trading WWE finishers with him and beating the ten-count after a turnbuckle brainbuster. The match nearly went to a time-limit draw, but Espy got the cross-armbreaker in the final minutes of the match and Varik tapped out at the 19:10 mark. The two shook hands after the bell without incident.

Mike Outlaw vs. “The Millenial” Danny Adams vs. Matt Kenway: The winner would earn the next shot at the T.V. Title. These three men (among others) had full nights as they were in both battle royals as well as this match. Funny to think that out of the participants in the infamous “illegal match” from last year between Everett Connors and Sean Orleans, only Adams (who refereed that match) remains in MMWA.
mmwamarch-31

mmwamarch-32

mmwamarch-33

mmwamarch-34

Kenway got his welcome-to-wrestling treatment as his chest was red from the knife-edge chops he received throughout the night. Adams pinned Kenway after the reverse Stunner in 11:34.

“Da Bomb” Brian James vs. “Dirdey” Jake Dirden for the T.V. Title: Despite being a rulebreaker in recent months, James was the fan favorite by default against the decidedly-rulebreaking Dirden.
mmwamarch-35

mmwamarch-36

mmwamarch-51

Dirden brought the title belt into the ring, but Dirden got it and BELTed James for the DQ in 9:17. The two continued to fight after the bell until being separated by officials…I don’t think this is over, but Danny Adams has the next shot at the championship.

“Fighting Irishman/Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Moondog Rover for the Heavyweight Title: Considering Moondog’s lengthy tenure in the area, it was surprising to hear Ben Simon comment that this was his first-ever shot at the MMWA Championship.
mmwamarch-52

Gary was dressed in green for St. Patrick’s Day and added his extra nickname for the night…he played the subtle rulebreaker role for the evening as Moondog OVAH was extremely popular as usual. They fought it out and Gary seemed to have the advantage before Williams & Jones ran in for the Sportz Entertainment Finish/no-contest in 9:02.

mmwamarch-53

mmwamarch-54

mmwamarch-55

mmwamarch-56

Bah! The good guys fought them off, but tension still existed between the two before Moondog left the ring area…

00

Gary cut a promo afterwards and said that Moondog could get another title shot any time he wanted. CUE THE RULES~!

MMWA Starts Off 2014 with an Eventful Show

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 29, 2014

By Patrick Brandmeyer

A new commissioner would be revealed. A massive newcomer would make his in-ring debut. Several championships would be defended. Those were the stories going into the first show of 2014 for the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance.

 photo IMG_7598_zps9b772446.jpg

Brandon Espinosa and Lynn Mephisto continued their habit of kicking off the show. As the two ran their mouths in the usual fashion, they took the time to hurl insults at former senior official Jim Harris in the audience. They were no strangers to the retired referee as Mephisto had manhandled Harris at previous shows. At that moment, ring announcer Ben Simon got a text message from the as-yet-unrevealed new commissioner…the two would have to participate in the night’s battle royal as well as their scheduled tag match.

 photo IMG_7615_zps627e87fb.jpg

Da’Marius Jones had a rough night ahead of him as he was the first opponent for the huge Barackus. The super heavyweight had made his first appearance at the December show by costing Dave Osborne his shot at then-champion Espinosa. Jones gave it his best shot but couldn’t overcome the size disadvantage…Barackus dropped him with a clawhold Flatliner and the referee stopped the match, awarding it to the big man by way of a knockout.

Mephisto had an opportunity to regain the Battle Royal Title he lost in December…and earn a shot at Television Champion Jimmy D in the process. However, five other men had the same goal, including defending Battle Royal Champion Stevie K and Mephisto’s own partner Espinosa. This time around, Gary Jackson would not be an outside factor…The Webmaster earned the victory with no questions asked. He took advantage of several instances of miscommunication to eliminate both Mephisto and Espinosa, retaining his title and moving on to a shot at Jimmy D.

With his manager Sean Orleans absent due to a suspension, Jackson Whitechapel had to fly solo against his recent rival Moondog Rover. The lack of focus on Whitechapel’s part may have been his undoing as the fan favorite cruised to victory, getting the pin after a huge spinebuster.

Junior Heavyweight Champion had been dealing with challenges from Ace Hawkins for several months. He scored a tainted victory over Ace in October, then lost to him in a non-title King Of St. Louis Cable Tournament bout in November. Wilder battled Hawkins and Da’Marius Jones in a triple threat matchup in December; the opportunistic “Wolf” got a cheap pin on Jones, but Ace remained in contention.

Hawkins teamed with J-Mal Swagg against the unusual team of Wilder and Flaming Freddie Fury.
 photo 5_zps3e022cf7.jpg

The bout started fast as all four men brawled, not giving Ben Simon the opportunity to announce the match stipulation. In the end, Wilder resorted to a low blow on Hawkins and got disqualified…he may have escaped from a worse beating on that night, but cost himself a different opportunity. As Ben announced after the bell, the winners of the match would name the stipulation for February’s Wilder-Hawkins title match! Hawkins wanted a no-disqualification match, thus keeping Wilder from taking the easy way out of another title defense. However, Wilder felt he had already proven himself to be the better man and wanted Ace to put something on the line as well: His Missouri Wrestling Revival “Sexiest Wrestler” award! The February matchup will be title belt vs. award plaque!

 photo 6_zpsa348bb72.jpg

Webmaster Stevie K had a shot at double gold as he sought to add the Wild World Of Wrestling Television Championship to his Battle Royal Title. However, Jimmy D wasn’t about to let his third title reign end so quickly…when the going got tough, D took a walk and got counted out to save his title.

Big Dave Osborne seemed to be in a sportsmanlike mood as he took on A.J. Williams. It was a battle of power and size against speed and agility, but an outside factor would decide the outcome. Barackus made another appearance and the distraction led to Osborne falling prey to Williams’ superkick. The big man laid out Osborne with his clawhold Flatliner after the match, making another statement at the expense of the former Heavyweight Champ.

 photo 1_zps51863c3e.jpg

The main event of the evening had bad blood on all sides…new Heavyweight Champion Brian James teamed up with former titleholder Gary Jackson against Espinosa and Mephisto. The referee had trouble maintaining law and order and soon it erupted into a full-scale fight. The official counted all four men out of the ring but that didn’t end the war by a longshot!

 photo 2_zps9d3fdf19.jpg

Barackus entered the ring and assisted Espinosa and Mephisto in their assault on James and Jackson, revealing his allegiance to the self-proclaimed young guns of the promotion.

 photo 3_zps0e08a0d1.jpg

Jackson was handcuffed to the ropes as the trio focused their attention on Brian James, but the new commissioner finally revealed himself and ordered a stop to the attack: It was Jim Harris!

 photo 4_zpsfb2598dd.jpg

Harris acted swiftly, suspending Barackus for a month after his repeated interference in matches. He announced that Espinosa would get a title rematch with James in February, but it would be his ONLY rematch for the gold. Finally, he announced that he had a surprise for Mephisto…and we would all have to wait until the February show to find out what that surprise is!

February 8th is already shaping up to be a major event with two titles on the line…new Commissioner Jim Harris has already made his first step in restoring law and order to the MMWA!
