BREAKING: Ace Hawkins wins MWR Missouri Title controversially in St. Louis!

Missouri Wrestling Revival was on hand for a packed house (att. 548) at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club on Feb 11th.  The monster Barackus defended his Missouri Wrestling Revival MO title for the first time since defeating Brandon Espinosa in January. His opponent was dangerous “The” Ace Hawkins, who has set his sights (for quite some time) on the MWR Missouri Championship.

Early on, Barackus showed the electric crowd his awesome power and fearsome attack, as he hammered home clotheslines and bodyslams left and right. Though Hawkins’s raw talents had won him the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie of the Year award in 2011, six years later he has shown that experience mixed with speed and talent is why he is still considered one of the most exciting young stars in the sport today.

During the match, Hawkins took a beating, but was able to keep his composure to stay alive, but it looked like the end was near when Barackus locked on the claw. With the force of a mac truck, Barackus lifted Hawkins up in the air and onto the mat with the clawhold slam for what looked to be the 1-2-3 from the referee Nick Ridenour and a roar of the SBAC fans.

Barackus went to celebrate his victory with the title that was handed to him.  However, referee Nick Ridenour had quickly let the fans, MMWA ring announcer Ben Simon and Barackus know that Hawkins had his feet on the ropes. As the referee went to return the MWR MO title back to Ben Simon, Hawkins went low with a kick to the groin that would end Barackus’s title reign mere seconds later.

Hawkins would not be done for the night as he would later use his new belt to level the former MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa with the strap, sending a message that he is not going to fear anyone in 2017.

Hawkins is a wanted man by both the monster Barackus and the former MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espionsa. First though he will have to see if he can retain his title when he travels to Warsaw, Missouri to take on HRW Mayhem Champion Justin D’Air in a title vs. title match at High Risk Wrestling this Saturday night, February 18.

More details on the HRW Warsaw event and Ace Hawkins as they come in to MWR.

Eliminations: Roberts eliminated Espy when Paco superkicked Espy to break up a brainbuster, allowing Roberts to reverse into a guillotine hold for the surprise tapout (4:15). Surge got a surprise rollup on Roberts to eliminate him (4:30). Fitchett pinned Surge with a Michinoku Driver (5:03). Dirden BOOTed Paco behind the referee’s back, allowing Adams to eliminate him after a reverse Stunner (15:22). Dirden pinned Fitchett after a discus Polish Hammer (17:35). Vega went toe-to-toe with Dirden and finally put him down for the count with a pump kick (21:52*). Vega thought he’d won, but Adams had been laying low on the floor; Jovi distracted Vega and Adams caught him with the reverse Stunner for a near-fall.

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.)

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-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.

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.

History Made: Brandon Espinosa Defends MWR MO Championship at SBAC

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 22, 2016

The show started with a ten-bell salute for Muhammad Ali.

Brandon Aarons vs. “Infamous” Tyler Copeland for the MMWA Jr. Heavyweight Title:

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-2

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-3

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-4

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-5

These guys have been around the horn a few times and had a good solid opener; Aarons won with the close-range superkick in 9:47. Copeland complained that he wasn’t adequately prepared since the match was the opener(suuuuure) and wanted a rematch, even offering to put his hair on the line. Copeland doesn’t have a whole lot to sacrifice in that regard, but Aarons accepted the challenge and the match was set for July 9th. If that stipulation went both ways, the female fans would have heart attacks over the prospect of Aarons’ luxurious locks being in jeopardy…in all heterosexuality, the man has a tremendous head of hair.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-7

Tag Team Champion Brandon Espinosa vs. “The Millenial” Danny Adams for the Missouri Wrestling Revival Missouri Title: This was the first appearance of the MWR MO belt at South Broadway. Espy & Ace Hawkins’ Tag Title feud with The Family (Prince Moses & Damion Cortess) seems to be on the back burner as Moses is out of action with an injury. Espy referenced the fact that he and Adams both train with Michael Elgin, so he has a bit more respect for Adams than for a lot of the guys in the locker room.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-8

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-9

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-10

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-11

They had a really good matchup that got a lot of time; Adams is progressing nicely and has been getting his name on people’s radars in recent months. The cross-armbreaker is a tough hold to transition into professional wrestling as people are expected to fight through the pain of submission holds…however, this particular maneuver can legitimately break an arm if fully applied for enough time.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-12

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-13

In that regard, a wrestler/fighter is likely to surrender quickly rather than risk a major injury. (I say this as someone who is not well-versed in the mixed martial arts world, so bear with my relative ignorance.) Espinosa won with the aforementioned hold in 16:19(!), but not without a strong effort on Adams’ part…they shook hands afterwards, though Espy was still a bit dismissive of his opponent’s efforts.

Damion Cortess vs. Barackus: The big man turned on The Family in May to cost Moses & Cortess the Tag Titles to Espinosa & Ace Hawkins.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-16

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-17

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-18

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-19

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-20

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-21

This one didn’t even get started as the combatants brawled at ringside until Hawkins blindsided Cortess, leading to a two-on-one attack. With Moses on the disabled list, it seemed like no one was available to help Cortess…but he got assistance from a surprise source in the form of J-Mal Swagg. Commissioner Jim Harris ordered an impromptu tag match as a result…playa.

J-Mal Swagg & Damion Cortess vs. Tag Team Champion “The” Ace Hawkins & Barackus: Swagg has his own fanbase at South Broadway, so this change of attitude seemed like a natural progression. he rulebreaking duo took a walk for the countout in 11:49; by that, I mean Barackus walked out with Hawkins slung over his shoulder. Heh.

Moondog Rover vs. “The Incredible” Matt Kenway (Look At Him): When I don’t make it to an MMWA event, I watch the archived webcast. The commentary is provided by The Dirty Heinous Show and “Dirty” is the main guy on the mic…his insistent reference to THE INCREDIBLE MATT KENWAY LOOK AT HIM created my above designation. (To be fair, being the only pale white guy in the building with cornrows probably prompted a few awkward glances at the May show.) At this show, the commentary was primarily provided by Evan Gelistico and Mike Outlaw, creating the unusual setup of a St. Louis Anarchy guy and a Dynamo Pro guy (respectively) calling an MMWA show. Moondog OVAH~! tends to be the fan favorite by default…whoever he’s facing rarely gets cheered against him, so opponents just have to go with that flow.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-25

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-27

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-28

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-29

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-30
MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-31

The Incredible Matt Kenway Look At Him tried to take out the leg, but Moondog simply overpowered him and won with a World’s Strongest Slam in 5:33. After the match, Gelistico left the webcast position and entered the ring with a chair…Rover turned his attention to Evan, setting up The Incredible Matt Kenway Look At Him to deliver a low blow from behind. Gelistico beat down Moondog with a chair until Big Hoffarth hit the ring to run him off; Evan and The Incredible Matt Kenway Look At Him left together.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-32

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-33

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-34

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-35

“Da Bomb” Brian James vs. Big Jim Hoffarth for the T.V. Title: All things considered, Big Jim probably didn’t need to go back to the dressing room as he was in the next matchup; that left the door open for James to attack him from behind as he made his re-entrance. Jimmy D came out to ringside but didn’t actively get involved; his presence was probably a distraction to the challenger as they’ve had issues in recent months. James won with the sitout gourdbuster (not an easy task given Hoffarth’s size) in 6:56; Jimmy D made fun of Hoffarth’s losing effort afterwards, but D had his own matters to attend to.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-36

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-37

Shaft vs. “The Enforcer” Jimmy D, loser-wears-a-dress match: The stipulation said that the loser would be forced to wear a dress for all of his subsequent wrestling appearances in the MMWA. Shaft has been a consistent presence at local wrestling shows but hasn’t competed regularly in several years. Jim Hoffarth took a seat at ringside, looking for some payback for Jimmy D’s earlier actions.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-38

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-39

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-40

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-41

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-42

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-43

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-44

Jimmy D appeared to be the more ring-ready of the two, but Hoffarth’s distraction allowed Shaft to get the rollup pin in 7:14. Unfortunately Jim Harris didn’t have a full-fledged dress for D to wear, instead opting for a black skirt that didn’t look all that notable against D’s dark-colored attire. Harris promised that D would have a brighter-colored ensemble when he faces Hoffarth in July.

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-45

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-46

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-47

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-48

MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-49

“Night Train/Great One/Gorgeous” Gary Jackson vs. “2.0” Da’Marius Jones(w/ B.T.) vs. A.J. Williams: B.T. is the former Jackson Whitechapel/Clownman Jacko and he brought a stop sign to the ring. Since this match format is no-DQ anyway, B.T. blatantly whacked Jackson with the sign in the early going, prompting a fight at ringside between the champion and Jones’ security man. Since Jones and Williams are tag team partners, the main question was whether a split would occur over who would get the title-winning victory. We got an answer, but probably not the one we wanted…Williams locked Jackson in a Sharpshooter while Jones hooked a Crippler Crossface at the same time. Jackson tapped out in a surprisingly short 6:40…but who was the champion?
MMWAJUNE201 LIGHTROOM-50

MMWA went through a similar situation last year when then-champion Williams fought Jones to a double-fall draw, leading to a title vacancy…and we got the same result here as Harris declared the title to be held up. The championship would be decided in July in a four-corner match involving Jackson, Williams, Jones, and another former champion: Kevin Lee Davidson.

Ron Powers Wins the Terry Funk Title Tournament to Once Again Become the Classic Wrestling Champion

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 14, 2016

“Memories Of Elvis” star Steve Davis sang the National Anthem; after that, they had a ten-bell salute to Blackjack Mulligan and Balls Mahoney (R.I.P.).

mpwrecap-4

Bobby D vs. Attila Khan(w/ Travis Cook): Travis gave a grand reintroduction to Khan, who hadn’t been seen in SICW since his cage match loss to Gary Jackson in December. Other than a brief flurry of offense by D (somersault plancha included), Khan dominated most of this opening bout. Khan pulled him up from a pin attempt after the inverted DDT, then hit the finisher a second time for the easy win in 3:02.

mpwrecap-5

The dynamic duo of Terry Funk and Larry Matysik did a random draw to determine the first-round matches in the Funk Title Tournament; the winner would be guaranteed a shot at the Classic Wrestling Championship. The draw produced several interesting bouts.

mpwrecap-6

mpwrecap-7

mpwrecap-8

Ron Powers vs. Big Jim Hoffarth, Terry Funk Title Tournament Quarterfinal: I didn’t expect a lot of technical wizardry in this one, but the two heavyweights did start the match with an exchange of holds. Of course, it quickly turned into a slugfest that culminated in two straight instances of simultaneous clotheslines. The power game was the deciding factor as Ron delivered a huge released German suplex for the win in 4:17; the two shook hands after the match. Given the tournament field, Powers seemed like the clear favorite to emerge victorious…but a few new wrinkles would surface in the big picture.

mpwrecap-9

mpwrecap-10

mpwrecap-11

mpwrecap-12

“Unstable” Dave Vaughn vs. Ax Allwardt(w/ Big Daddy), Terry Funk Title Tournament Quarterfinal: Big Daddy managed both men, so he entered on his own after both wrestlers made their way to the ring. Vaughn returned to wrestling as a member of Big Daddy’s new stable as the veteran manager returned to his rulebreaking ways; the group also includes Bubba Troll, who was absent on this night. Vaughn had said that Big Daddy got him out of an insane asylum; he had “SANE” written on his wrist tape, though his demeanor would indicate otherwise. Vaughn had only recently returned to action after a layoff of several years, so it may take some time for him to get back into prime ring shape. With a matchup of two rulebreakers, the fans weren’t too invested in the bout; Vaughn seemed to be the lesser of two evils in this case. Big Daddy loudly proclaimed that he didn’t care who won as he got the winner’s share of the purse money in either case; however, he distracted the referee after Vaughn hit his signature spear. That distraction enabled Ax to hit Vaughn with his chain behind the referee’s back, scoring the tainted win in 5:54. On the heels of Vaughn and Ax’s tag team loss in March and this outcome, Big Daddy fired Vaughn from his stable…but a YouTube video showed Vaughn attacking Sean Vincent later in the night, so that feud will continue. At any rate, Ax was set to face Ron Powers in the semifinals.

mpwrecap-13

mpwrecap-14

mpwrecap-15

“The Fury” Jason Vaughn & “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. Britton Tucker & Waco: In the tradition of Wrestling At The Chase, this tag match had two referees; Earl Hebner was the main referee and Jay King was on the floor. Vaughn and Tucker are newcomers to SICW; I first heard of Tucker from his days in World League Wrestling. Vaughn(market confusion~!) recently started with the promotion and I don’t know much about him. I would have expected the official’s roles to be reversed, but it was Hebner who was knocked down during the match’s closing moments. Vaughn small-packaged Tucker and Jay King entered the ring to count the fall in 8:40.

mpwrecap-17

mpwrecap-18

mpwrecap-19

“Ironman” Ken Kasa vs. “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook), Terry Funk Title Tournament Quarterfinal: Kasa was booted from the Travis Cook Organization and it was his old friend Hargas who dished out the beating to accentuate that executive action. Kasa was looking for payback, but Hargas attacked him from behind as he was entering the ringside area. Hargas hit him across the back with a chair for the fun of it…and this happened before the opening bell, so it put Kasa at a several disadvantage. Kasa fought back and nearly won with a rear naked choke, but Travis reached through the ropes to rake Kasa’s eyes out of the referee’s line of sight. The fight repeatedly spilled out of the ring, finally resulting in a double countout in 7:12.

mpwrecap-20

mpwrecap-21

mpwrecap-50

Promoter Herb Simmons interviewed the special guests for the evening: Terry Funk and Director Of Affairs Cowboy Bob Orton. Classic Champion Flash Flanagan entered the ring with some harsh words for the legends and said he had PLANNED to make a name for himself at their expense…but circumstances dictated otherwise as he has a torn rotator cuff. Flash admitted that he’s not cleared to compete and had to surrender the championship…he seemed to be in the process of a turn to fan favoritism in recent months, mostly through common enemies with the other “good guys” on the roster. Simmons, Funk, and Orton mutually agreed that the winner of the night’s tournament would earn the vacant championship…it seemed like the tourney winner would be next in line for the belt anyway.

mpwrecap-51

mpwrecap-53

mpwrecap-54

mpwrecap-55

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook), Terry Funk Title Tournament Quarterfinal: The winner of this match would get a bye to the finals due to the Kasa-Hargas double countout. Travis was on fire with his pre-match promo as Kahagas was his last horse in the race. While Vincent had a good run of momentum in the previous months, this seemed like a foregone conclusion as the former titleholder was driven to regain his gold. Kahagas got the win after a huge lariat in 6:22…and Vincent’s night got worse as he was attacked by Vaughn outside the building (as noted earlier).

mpwrecap-56

mpwrecap-58

mpwrecap-59

Ron Powers vs. Ax Allwardt (w/ Big Daddy), Terry Funk Title Tournament Semifinal: Big Daddy’s distraction backfired this time as Powers gave Ax a taste of his own chain, notching the victory in 5:07 to go to the finals.

mpwrecap-60

mpwrecap-61

mpwrecap-62

mpwrecap-63

mpwrecap-64

“Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde(w/ Wyldefyre): This stemmed from Wylde wanting to rebound from his cage match loss to Sean Vincent in December, making a statement by attacking Jackson after his own cage match with Attila Khan. They caused each other’s eliminations in a six-man tag, then Wylde got suspended for attacking a referee during a singles bout between the two. Wylde bought a ticket to the March show and attacked Jackson AGAIN…Herb Simmons wanted to fire him outright, but Gary convinced him to let them settle things in the ring.

Wyldefyre put herself between Wylde and Jackson at the opening bell and was a constant nuisance for Gary…Wylde repeatedly used her as a human shield whenever Gary gave chase. The end came when Wyldefyre interjected herself AGAIN as Jackson was preparing to finish off her man. Gary avoided her slap attempt and picked her up to throw at Curtis Wylde, causing her to deliver an unintentional rana on Wylde! However, the referee made the unusual decision to call for the bell, disqualifying Jackson in 9:12 for using Wyldefyre as a weapon. The Wyldes celebrated their ill-begotten win while Gary confronted the referee over his thought process…that brought Herb Simmons into the situation.
mpwrecap-65

Gary wanted one more shot at Wylde and Herb made it so for the May 21st show…with Wyldefyre locked in a cage to keep her out of things!

mpwrecap-66

Ron Powers vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook), Terry Funk Title Tournament Final: The tournament was originally to determine the next challenger to Flash Flanagan’s Classic Wrestling Championship, but Flanagan’s injury and forfeiture meant that the tournament winner would become the new titleholder.

mpwrecap-67

mpwrecap-68

mpwrecap-69

mpwrecap-70

mpwrecap-71

mpwrecap-72

mpwrecap-73

 

mpwrecap-74

It didn’t take long for this battle of heavy hitters to get out of hand…the two brawled out of the ring and all the way around the Community Center, whacking each other with chairs and other furniture. The referee allowed a lot of leeway with the stakes involved in the matchup, so they eventually made it back to the ring as the match continued. Seemingly out of nowhere, Powers hit the RKO for the win in 6:05 to become the NEWWWWW SICW Classic Wrestling Champion!
mpwrecap-75

mpwrecap-76

mpwrecap-77

After the match, Flash Flanagan entered the ring…tension ensued, but he graciously handed the title belt over to Powers and then beat down Travis Cook with his kendo stick. That brought out the rest of Cook’s troops(Attila Khan and Chris Hargas), but Terry Funk and Cowboy Bob Orton hit the ring to help Powers fight them off! Once the dust settled, Herb proposed that Flash give the belt to the tournament’s namesake Funk; Funk then presented it properly to the new champion Ron Powers to close 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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