Action returns to the East Carondelet Community Center when the MMWA/SICW continues to bring the fans some of the greatest action in the Midwest. Last show during the television taping for Charter Cable the fans witnessed Champion Ron Powers battle Chris Harges, with Harges having his head put through the wall and a table being broke and after having his hands full with Harges Powers managed to survive. He later became outraged with wrestling book author, play by play announcer and the voice of Wrestling Explosion Larry Matysik due to his name not being included in Matysik’s new book, “The fifty great wrestlers of all time”.

After they exchanged words Powers agreed to a challenge by Matysik that if he could beat an opponent of Matysik’s choosing then he would but Powers name in the new book. Matysik called upon Dave Vaughn to battle with Powers with the stipulation Powers had to beat Vaughn in five minutes or less. Powers couldn’t get the job done and about three minutes into the match Powers henchmen, Sean Vincent and the Big Texan entered the ring just as Vaughn had the sleeper hold locked onto Powers. With Vincent and Texan interfering this called for a DQ of Powers. As you know there shortly after I signed Powers to meet Vaughn on October 15th for the CWC title.

Also on October 15th a special match was signed. The bright new Star LMC came to the aid of ring announcer Jeff Vernetti who is a local DJ on 1380 sports talk radio in St. Louis when Max Archer and Waco attacked Vernetti for not interviewing them. I signed a match featuring LMC & Vernetti taking on Archer and Waco in a special tag match. All the 1380 sports talk radio fans will be coming out to support Jeff and LMC.

There will be five other outstanding matches to round out the television taping. For tickets or special group rates fans can call 618-286-4848.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Ron Powers excited to be named one of Larry Matysik’s 50 Greatest Wrestlers of All-time.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 7, 2011

Earlier this week Michael Holmes, the editor for ECW Press that on Saturday September 17th in East Carondelet, IL  the fans will have a special interview with MWR’S Brian Kelley on the most talked about wrestling book for the upcoming year, Larry Matysik’s “ 50 Wrestlers of All Time”.

Word quickly got back to the CWC Champion Ron Powers, Though the names on the list have not been announced yet, Powers was ecstatic that Matysik was honoring the great men in the sport of wrestling with such a great book. In response, MWR received this letter from the champion.

To all my die hard fans,

It was an honor to be the subject in Larry Matysik’s first two books, “Wrestling at the Chase”, and “Brody”. I feel, as do all of you, these books would not have reached the level they did, had my name not been mentioned. Larry knows, and accepts this for a fact. And now, “The 50 Greatest Wrestlers of all-time “,will hit the shelves.

Soon to become a best seller, this book will name the top 50 wrestlers to have ever entered the squared circle. It will be a milestone in my career, to see my name in the top 50. Lord knows I deserve it! If this book has been written with any accuracy, I should be in the top 25. Let’s hope Mr. Matysik remembers what sells……………..ME.

Sincerely Yours,
Ron Powers

Please join us in less than two weeks when Missouri Wrestling Revival will return to East Carondelet for a special TV Tapping. During the night MWR’S Brian Kelley,  will be having a special interview along with Jeff Vernetti of Sports Talk Radio 1380 speaking about the much anticipated Larry Matysik’s new book about the “50 greatest wrestlers of all time”, which Larry is finishing now and will be out late next spring.

The main event Sept. 17 is a Classic Championship match between titleholder Ron Powers and challenger Chris Hargas.

We look forward to see you there.
