With the Help of the Villains and Justin Elijah, Ric Maverick Captures the GWF Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 2, 2017

GWF‘s rebirth saw shenanigans and chaos happen early on when Ric Maverick took a cheap shot at Curt Gannon‘s leg to start the show when the two had words prior to their main event match. Though Gannon was hurting and limping when it was time for the Championship match, he stood tall waiting for the cowboy Ric Maverick to come out.

Yet, GWF Promoter Justin Elijah had one more trick up their sleeve when he came out to the ring to announce that the title match was a No Dq, No Countout match. Before Gannon had a moment to take in what he was up against out came the new GWF Tag Team Champions the Villains to deliver a vicious beat down.

After what seemed to be an eternity, Maverick finally came down to the ring and as the Villains held down the arms and legs of Gannon while stepping on him as the referee counted to three.

The crowd was stunned as the bad guys celebrated and Elijah celebrated around the building to mark the start of the new era in GWF.

Ricky Cruz Reflects on his Career in the Midwest- See Him One Last Time on Saturday

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 23, 2016

0000

When Ricky Cruz told me recently that he was calling it a career for some reason I just did not compute that it would actually happen. Maybe I was in denial. Time passed and to be honest I had forgotten all about it till I was having breakfast at Denny’s with my friends Ben Simon, Patrick Brandmeyer and Gary Weiss and it was one of the main topics this past Friday night.

To say that Ricky Cruz was influential in the Midwest since his debut in 2011 would be an understatement. One of the top stars in his country of Puerto Rico, fans quickly fell in love with not only the wrestling skills that Cruz possessed but the rare charisma that only a few are blessed with. In fact other than Brandon Espinosa and Jeremy Wyatt  there most likely is no other wrestler that I photographed or wrote their name on our site more throughout his time in the Midwest, than “The King of Chaos”, Ricky Cruz.

There is no doubt that his feuds and matches with the likes of Ron Powers, Jeremy Wyatt, Adam Pearce,  and Jake Dirden will be remembered for years to come. More than once I have seen a crowd that was dead for one reason or another come alive as Cruz was able to establish a connection with them and get them to their feet.

Cuz always took the time to help other young stars in the area along the way with advice in and out of the ring. Though I have mentioned it more than once already it can’t be stated enough the connection that Ricky Cruz had with his fans, young and old. As a photographer he made my job FUN and easy when it was time to get that awesome photo of a wrestler with his fans, before, during and after the matches. If I only had a dollar each time a fan asked for me to take their photo with him through the years I could take December off.

He would go on to star for almost every respectable company in the MWR Coverage area, winning titles and being named the 2014 MWR Wrestler of the Year. We were also honored to have him be a part of the first series of the MWR Trading card set at number #78.

When Ben Simon came up with the idea of having a MWR Missouri Title, Ricky Cruz became the first ever champion when he defeated Jake Dirden. I am forever grateful that he took pride in carrying the title that had the MWR name throughout the state of Missouri. We had so much fun through his reign working with several top promotions and wrestlers along the way.

On a personal level, the future Mrs. Brian Kelley, (Dubray) and I will always consider Ricky a dear friend.

This Saturday I hope that you join me as we say farewell to Ricky Cruz as he takes on his arch rival Jake Dirden one last time at Dynamo Pro Wrestling at the Ready Room on Saturday night.

Dynamo Pro 11/26/16

I leave you with Ricky Cruz’s final goodbye through social media, but it will be so much sweeter for you to say goodbye to him in person.

By the way Ricky if you decide to renege on this announcement afterwards I am all for it.

Cruz can’t lose.

Brian Kelley – Missouri Wrestling Revival Owner and Editor

Thank you!!

Since May 2011 I’ve had the opportunity to be here in the mid-west doing what I love, WRESTLING. It’s been great to have the chance to entertain the fans and work with so many talented people.

I wanted to take a minute before this 2 last matches and thank the people that have help me and encourage me to continue doing what I love when I thought I would never set foot in a ring ever again. When I came to St. Louis I was injured and I was never to wrestle again or at least that’s what I was told by my Dr. but that wasn’t the case.

As I was getting better I had the chance to meet Keith Smith and Tony Costa, two gentleman that has been in wrestling forever. They gave me a place to train and later on my first opportunity to come back to the ring. For that I will forever be grateful.

Also thanks to Herb Simmons because he gave me a chance to do great things at SICW. Even when we don’t see eye to eye in a couple of things this days I still appreciate the opportunity and the faith he had in me and my work. I hope one day we can seat at Steak and Shake like we use to and talk wrestling.

I have to thank all the veterans that helped in any way, Keith, Chester, Gary, Pete, for all the advice and their comments. Thank you for helping me be better at this craft.
