Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 2, 2019

Tonight I was privileged and honored to be invited to the 54th Anniversary of the Cauliflower Alley Club where my great friend Herb Simmons has the distinguished honor to present Larry Matysik’s Pat wife with the Posthumous Award for his dedication to Professional Wrestling.

Herb delivered an excellent speech inducting Larry and sharing their life together in professional wrestling. I cannot think of a better person to bestow this deserving honor on Larry.

A Night with Larry Matysik Delivers Memories that Will Last a Lifetime.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 21, 2018

By Brian Kelley

When I heard that my friend and the Voice of the Wrestling at the Chase Larry Matsyik was going to be featured as a special guest at Hey Guys Comedy Club I knew I had to be there. The Midwest is very fortunate to have Matysik accessible to fans to still hear stories firsthand of legendary matches and the top stars to ever enter the ring from the days of the territories.

The event was hosted by wrestling historian and comedian Patrick Brandmeyer, whom just so happens to be a longtime supporter of pro wrestling in the Midwest. An added bonus for fans was the fact that WWE Hall of Famer, Cowboy Bob Orton was to be on hand to see his son Nathan Orton open up with hilarious stand-up comedy.  I was pleas able to meet the son of Sam Muchnick, Dr. Richard Muchnick, who came to enjoy the show with wrestling referee Jay King. I was surprised to learn that he was a Doctor and had spent time stitching up the cuts of the stars of the Chase and the Kiel Auditorium.

Matysik has teamed up with his friend Herb Simmons to promote and announce for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling in East Carondelet, Illinois while also providing his knowledge and advice to aspiring wrestling for the past four decades. So it was only fitting that Simmons was on stage with Matysik to interview him as the two friends went down memory lane on topics such as Sam Muchnick, Vince McMahon , Mickey Garagiola, Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, Bruiser Brody, Harley Race, Pat O’Connor, the difference between pro wrestling from the past and today.

Larry was also surprised on the night thanks to special guest St. Clair County Chairman Mark Kern who  proclaimed the day as Larry Matysik Day along with a plaque.

At the end of the night Larry was more than happy to take photos, sign autographs and thank his fans and friends for coming on out. I hope that in the future that there will be another night for the fans and myself to enjoy a night with Larry Matysik.

“Queen of SICW” WyldeFyre gets the news that Miss Monica is RETURNING!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 17, 2017

MWR Editors note: This title for the post was sent to us via Curtis Wylde and does not reflect the thoughts of the MWR staff.

Just got off the phone with Herb Simmons!!

He has informed me that even though we sent them back to Italy in a “Loser Leaves SICW” match… the new year has brought an end to that clause, and Miss Monica is returning to SICW!

He wants to bring her back… That’s FINE!! Because before I was the “Number 1 Ginja”, and the “Uncrowned Midwest Manager of the Year“… I was a trained Professional Wrestler!

So, April 29th in Millstadt, IL. The self-proclaimed “MWR Female Wrestler of the Year” Miss Monica will be going 1 on 1 with the “Queen of SICW“, the “Lioness of the Lou“… WyldeFyre!

And I’m going to send Miss Monica BACK to Italy… again!
