The Icon Takes Home the Gold – Chris Hargas Wins the SICW Classic Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 24, 2017

MWR would like to congratulate Chris Hargas for capturing the SICW Classic Wrestling Championship this past weekend at the 58th Anniversary of the Wrestling at the Chase Super show at SICW. Though we do not approve of Hargas’s tactics and that of his manager Travis Cook, there is no denying that in the past year Chris Hargas has upped his game and is deserving of holding this prestigious title.

Brian Kelley – Owner & Editor of Missouri Wrestling Revival

Recap by Patrick Brandmeyer

Flash Flanagan vs. “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook), Classic Title Tournament Final, Best-Of-3-Falls Match, Special Guest Referee “The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz:

Hargas defeated The Big Texan, Gary Jackson, and Ken Kasa to reach the finals; he was the fresh competitor compared to Flash who had already competed and was favoring his arm. Cruz had plenty of history with both Flanagan and Travis Cook, but he had promised to be unbiased. Cook couldn’t resist getting involved and that led to Hargas winning the first fall; Flanagan attempted to suplex Hargas back into the ring, but Cook grabbed Flash’s foot and held it as Hargas fell on top for the pin in 8:12. Travis kept sticking his nose into the matchup until Ricky finally hauled off and belted him off the ring apron. Flanagan fought back to even the score in 11:05 after a Tree Of Woe double-stomp off the top rope.

As Flash hoped to maintain his momentum, Cowboy Marc Houston made his presence known; Flash left the ring to confront Houston during the rest period between falls. That didn’t end well as Houston ran Flanagan shoulder-first into the ring post…Big Daddy seemed to be encouraging Houston’s actions from the sidelines, so perhaps he’s found a new protégé. Cook demanded that Flanagan be counted out to give Hargas the final fall, but Cruz allowed Flanagan a longer rest period for the sake of fairness. Unfortunately the damage had already been done; Flash did his best to stay in the fight, but Hargas locked on the Crippler Crossface…Flash never surrendered, but he passed out in the hold and the referee called for the bell in 17:23 after three arm drops!

“The Icon” Chris Hargas had become the new SICW Classic Wrestling Champion, much to the delight of his manager who finally had “his” championship back!

Flash Flanagan Back on Top, Red River Jack is Cowboy Bob Orton and Sean Vincent Survives the Elimination Match

SICW returned in 2016 with a bang as Flash Flanagan for the third time became the SICW Classic Champion by defeating the man who had pinned him for the title in December Travis Cook’s client Kahagas in a fierce brutal battle that in the end,  Ron Power‘s powerful right punch were the deciding factor.

Travis Cook quickly made his presence known early and often as he continued to interfere in the match on the behalf of the Champion. Flanagan was reeling when Powers came out from the back to confront Cook walking with the crutches thanks to an injury he had suffered the month prior in the fatal three way title match. Due to Powers being in crutches, Cook arrogantly mocked the former champ, but it would not last long as the Powers wrapped his powerful hands around the neck of Cook as the crutches fell to the floor.

Cook’s other henchman Brandon Espinosa attempted to jump Powers but was quickly dropped to the ground with a right hand. Kahagas was pounding on Flanagan when he saw that his manager was in trouble and as the ref was checking on the challenger Powers slugged the Champ allowing Flanagan to capitalize for the 1-2-3.

Earlier in the night the Sean Vincent continued his climb up the championship title hunt after a huge win against his arch rival Curtis Wylde in a cage in December, Vincent became the sole survivor in a 6-man tag elimination match when he teamed up with Ken Kasa and Gary Jackson to defeat Wylde (accompanied by Wyldefyre), Chris Hargas and Dave Vaughn with manager Travis Cook.

The victory would be a painful one though as Vaughn drilled Vincent when they were the final two remaining with a brutal low blow costing him and his team the match thus making him the winner of the match.

The main event was exciting but there was no doubt that shocking moments of the night would come in the Red River Jack and Bubba Troll clash. The contest started off simple enough as Red River Jack came to the ring with his manager Big Daddy and the two men locked up to see who was the best on that night.

 photo 10_zps1cacnhaq.jpg

Bubba Troll looked to use his power early on but Red River Jack used his experience to gain the advantage. When Red River Jack went to bounce off the ropes for leverage, Big Daddy tripped his own man allowing Troll to pounce. Still Red River Jack was able to get the advantage and Big Daddy called out the hired guns of Ax Alwardt and Dave Vaughn to attack.

Red River Jack leveled the three men with RKO’s and punches and then turned his attention to Big Daddy who had entered the ring hoping to land a cheap shot. Big Daddy’s fear got the best of him and he feel down as he was trying to get away and was trapped against the ring post when out of the blue Red River Jack unmasked himself to show to the crowd that he was the WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton. Orton justifiable payed back his manager for his betrayal and left him reeling in pain. As Orton left the building Big Daddy promised revenge in the coming months at SICW.
