Kris Wyatt Gone But Not Forgotten –New Breed Wrestling Honored a Friend in Eldon, Missouri

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 25, 2017

Though he never held a World title or wrestled in Japan, Kris Wyatt touched many people in his life. From a loving son and husband, he took time to support local wrestling for many years in Missouri as a group of Harley Race’s World League Wrestling fans called the Fulton Animals. They came to many wrestling events to cheer the good guys and to give the bad ones a hard time. When it was said and done Kris and his group of friends created memories for not only themselves but the wrestlers they supported.

Many years later Kris would team up with former World League Wrestling referee Scott Zei when he decided to start the Missouri base New Breed Wrestling. Kris would be helpful with the sound system, before taking over the booking.

Kris would have been proud of the huge turnout for the sport that he loved. The night started off with a ten bell salute in the honor of Kris and former Central States Wrestling ring announcer Bill Kersten. Former WLW and WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch made a surprise appearance for a special speech to the fans on what Kris meant to him and his career.

In attendance was his mother Daisy and wife Cindy as well as many extended family ringside. The night would feature many high flying, hard hitting battles and a steel chain match that had the crowd popping all night long worthy of our friend Kris Wyatt.

Prior to the New Breed Wrestling event the fans could sign a memorial book of Kris Wyatt as they checked out the joy that he brought many in his life.

Many of the New Breed Wrestling family gathered for a photo at the memorial table. These were just a few of the hard working men and women that were proud to be a part of the Kris Wyatt Memorial event.

Back By Popular Demand at WLW – Ron Simmons Comes to Troy, Missouri Nov 4th

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 8, 2017

Ron Simmons by Rob Schamberger

November 4, 2017
World League Wrestling
198 Cherry Blossom Way, Troy, Missouri 63379

From robschamberger.com.

Ron Simmons follows in a proud tradition of men who have competed both on the gridiron and in the squared circle. In football, he played for Florida State University where he was recognized as an All-American. He briefly played for the NFL with the Cleveland Browns and the USFL’s Tampa Bay Bandits. One of his teammates in Tampa, Larry Pfohl, would also go on to wrestling fame under the name of Lex Luger. Simmons would then transition to wrestling, where in WCW he would join Butch Reed in the tag team Doom. Doom would feud with the likes of the Steiner Brothers, the Rock n’ Roll Express and the Four Horsemen, before breaking up and feuding with one another.

As a singles wrestler, he would soon face Luger for the World Championship, a match he would not succeed in. He would also face Kevin Nash and Scott Hall in their respective gimmicks Oz and the Diamond Studd. But it was in 1992 that he would face and defeat Vader for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship that Simmons found himself the company’s first African-American to hold the title. The crowd reaction from his victory is one of the greatest in wrestling history, with fans losing control of themselves, jumping up and down, screaming and crying. It gives me chills every time I see it. He held the title for five months.

In 1996 he joined the WWE as Farooq to feud with Ahmed Johnson, later forming the awesomely-named stable The Nation of Domination, a group inspired with the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam. Simmons would later lose control of the group to a young upstart by the name of The Rock. He would soon find himself partnered with John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield. The group was first called Hell’s Henchmen before being incorporated into the Undertaker’s storyline as the Acolytes. The two were a perfect pairing of hard-hitting, smash-mouthed bad-asses that blurred the lines of reality with the viciousness of their attacks. This was around the time I started watching wrestling, and they were instantly my favorite team. They really struck me as two guys you really wouldn’t want to be in a bar with.

No longer associated with the Undertaker, the duo rechristened themselves as the Acolyte Protection Agency, mercenary bodyguards available to the highest bidder. The team continued their smash-mouth matches, but would also have occasional barfight vignettes at a tavern in the town they were visiting. It was during the APA time that Simmons started incorporating what would become his trademark by saying ‘DAMN’ when something would disgust him. The team would disband as JBL went on to singles glory and Simmons left the company.

He still makes semi-regular appearances, largely in a comedic role. Some in-ring or backstage segment will get ridiculous with the wrestlers acting a fool, and the camera will pull back or pan over to reveal Simmons standing there with a disgusted look on his face, then loudly proclaiming, “DAMN!” It pops the crowd every single time, including me.

In 2008 he was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame for his time at Florida State, of which he was also entered into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame. In 2012 he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame due to his accomplishments as the first African-American WCW World Champion and his prominence in the Attitude Era with WWE.

About the piece: I did this one in a similar style to the JBL portrait, but in a red color scheme rather than the blue one of Layfield’s. I wanted the two to compliment one another, while still letting each retain their individuality. I painted the background with acrylic red and black house paint and some watered-down gesso. I then brought in the figure and used a little bit of the red and black to give it some zing. I then took a couple pieces of scrap foam board I had sitting around and used them to mask the lines for the horizontal stripes of spray paint. I then put a little more watered-down gesso on and it was good to go! DAMN!

MWR Missouri Champion Ace Hawkins Prepares to Tour the U.K.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 2, 2017

Can Ace Hawkins remain the the MWR MO Champion this coming weekend at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling when he defends his title against Jack Gamble in Troy, Missouri? If so this match may prepare him for his upcoming tour of the U.K. because Gamble has toured Japan for NOAH with multiple years attending the WLW/WWE/NOAH/ROH camps in the years past. Gamble is formally one half of the MWR Tag Team of the Year recipient with partner Jon Webb, so there is a great chance that Hawkins could be boarding the plane without the belt in hand.

Regardless of what happens, Hawkins is one of the truly exciting young stars in the country. Fans of the U.K are about to see why many people believe that he often has the match of the night when looks to take on all challengers in a huge tour.

Here is the early preview of the MWR Missouri Champions tour schedule.
