LWA arena report March 7th

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 28, 2009

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

When LWA comes to O’Fallon Illinois there is bound to be some wild wrestling action. Jordan Lacey and Jeremy Wyatt had set the bar very high the night before with a brutal match that was exciting from start to finish. LWA Has been red hot as of late and with a motto like “ St. Louis Pro Wrestling…A little on the Crazy Side” you never know what you will see when you enter the building.

Before the matches started Vice President Jewels entered the ring to remind the fans that LWA hero Adam Raw would have to make it through her three way gauntlet of matches in the upcoming shows to be reinstated. With an evil grin she stated that it would not be “easy”. His opponent this evening would be none other than Evan Gelistico.

The first match of the evening saw Adam Rich taking on Submission Squad member Pierre Abernathy who was joined by frequent tag team partner Evan Gelistico at ringside.

Pierre was on top of his game and dropped Rich with a powerful clothesline that look to take the life out Rich. Pierre proved why he is one of the top wrestlers in the Midwest and took the win to set the tone for the rest of the Submission Squad members.

Tiffany LaFane was active the night before , this night was no different for in the second match she joined Davey Vega in his three way match against masked newcomer Dash Rando and J.C. Bravo (w/ Team Smurf(Chingo & Alektra Blue).

The three men electrified the building with swift moves that excited the crowd. Poor Rando was on an island when Team Smurf did their best to interfere on behalf of Bravo, and when that was happing Lafane was making her presence known by interfering for Vega.

My good friend Patrick Brandmeyer stated that “the Innovative move of the match was Bravo managing to get both Vega and Rando in a half-crab at the same time”.

Lafane would be the difference maker in this encounter of three rising stars and Vega took home another win for the Submission Squad proving that once again they are one of the most powerful factions in the Midwest.

The LWA seems to be motivated to bringing in some of the top women wrestlers in the world for their fans to see in the next couple of months. On the second night of the Double shot, MsChif made her return to the LWA to face Rachel Summerlyn. Summerlyn was looking to go 2-0 after defeating Alektra Blue in Granite City the night before.

I have to give it to Summerlyn, Mschif stretched her, choked her and beat her down but there was no quit from the girl from Texas.

MsChif would have her hands raised after she hit a Desecrator(stepover DDT) Summerlyn can feel good going back home to Texas feeling good for her self that she got a chance to test herself with the top women in the world and held her own.

During intermission Ego Express member Steven Kennedy’s rock band Noiseland performed. Kennedy would be teaming up with his partner KC Karrington to take on the Northstar Express later in the evening but was as calm as could be on the guitar as the band rocked O’Fallon.

When we came back from the break we had a battle of the two big men between Darin Childs and Donovan Ruddick. Childs did not endure himself to the Donovan Ruddick the night before when he hit “The Future” with a chair. Childs and Ruddick were like two freight trains on the same rail on a collision course. Ruddick punished Childs outside the ring.

When Ruddick took it back to the ring Childs attacked Ruddick’s formerly injured arm.

Childs was looking strong and seemed to have the former Champions number. Ruddick has the power to overwhelm anyone and Childs felt first hand the explosive force from the former LWA Champion. Ruddick lifted Childs up and delivered a Regal Roll for the victory.

The next match of the evening was between the LWA Tag Team Champions Steven Kennedy and KC Karrington and the MWR Tag team of the Year for 2008 The Northstar Express (Darin Corbin and Ryan Cruz). The Northstar had earned a chance for the titles the night before when they defeated Submission Squad in Granite City the night before (See Kari Williams great recap of the show at MWR here)

The battle of the Express’s was on and from the moment that the bell rang I knew that I was ringside for a match that would be special. The Northstar was accompanied by their valet “pNut” Nikki Mayday. Perfect tag team executions were displayed by both teams. Ground and air attacks were plentiful with mind games galore.

The two Expresses each had a chance for the win. In the end it was the Ego’s who took home the bragging rights this time when the Ego Express dropped Ryan Cruz on top of Corbin for the 1-2-3 and scored the double win.

After the Match was over Karrington took the mic to let the crowd and the Northstar Express to know that they were proud to have gone head to head with one of the most talented teams in the country.

I thought to myself I would hate to follow that match but up next we had Adam Raw and his quest to be reinstated. Jewels must have had a heck of speech prior to the match because Evan Gelistico really was focused during this match. After withstanding Raw’s early onslaught Gelistico took advantage on a miss kick that hit the ring post. Gelistico methodically grounded Raw by taking out his legs.

Raw’ needed this win to be reinstated and it was slipping away before his eyes. I had never seen Gelistico at this level and what a bragging right it would be to retire LWA favorite Adam Raw in his very first match back. Raw rebounded and hit a fall away suplex for what I am sure would of have been the end of Gelistico a year ago, but not today. Raw finally was able to get the victory in a very tough match to continue his road back to the LWA full time. I had talked to a friend of mine after the show and I told him that was the best match I had ever seen Gelistico wrestle in and he stated “I prefer the Mike Quackenbush match from earlier this year, I may disagree but there is no doubt that Gelistico had learned from the match with Quackenbush and has upped his game.

The last two matches were main event quality anywhere in the Midwest and we still had the four way for Jeremy Wyatt’s LWA Championship.

The deadly and exciting Arik Cannon stood across from him. J.T. Lamotta looked to take the LWA title back home with him to Texas. I was very impressed with J.T. Lamotta the night before and in this match he confirmed my belief that he is one of the rising stars in wrestling.

One word can describe the match, exciting. J.T Lamotta delivered an awesome version of a suplex DDT on Gary the Barn owl that had me feeling it myself.

As the match continued Tiffany LaFane reinforced the thought of many that she is one of the premier mangers in the sport today.

Not once but twice she entered the ring to deliver a low blow on Cannon to keep Gary’s chances alive. Wyatt ever the opportunist continued his dominance of the Midwest when he took advantage of Cannon’s misfortune, hit a Lightning Spiral top retain the LWA Championship.

When the match was over Lafane was furious and demanded that Gary take out Cannon. Cannon fought fire with fire and delivered a low blow of his own, much to Lafane’s surprise. Cannon was able to catch her before she was able to flee the ring.

With Cannon having a handful of hair, I would have bet money he was about to lay a kiss on her but unfortunately for Lafane, Cannon did not have romance on his mind. He hoisted up the LWA Diva and hit her with a devastating brainbuster that sent her crumpling into the mat.

The LWA is on Fire in 2009 with some of the best matches that they have ever had. This marks the second show in the past two months that did not have a bad match on it. I urge you to buy a ticket and see what you have been missing.

The LWA returns April 4th in O’Fallon Il ROH star MsChif returns to take on Sara Del Ray.

February Promotion of the Month

3XW
logo1

The 3XW show on February 28th was to benefit a 11 year old Christian Arnold & his family. Christian was diagnosed with cancer in his foot and had to have his leg amputated below the knee this week. His family has insurance, but because they took him to Mayo Clinic which is outside their network, much of his bills will not be covered. This is an addition to the costs a family has just having a very sick kid. This was not just a benefit show, ALL the proceeds from this event went to the family.

All wrestlers, referees, ring announcers, etc have volunteered their time and travel expenses so that the absolute most money can be raised for this family. The only money that did not go to the family is the money that the state of Iowa requires for sales tax & a percentage of ticket sales that is required to be paid to the Iowa state athletic commission.

The result? One of the biggest crowds in 3XW history packed the McCarroll Gym and helped raise over $4,000 for the family of Christian Arnold while witnessing one of the most exciting events 3XW has ever held. Wrestling aside, one of the true highlights of the evening was the auction for a steel chair signed by all the wrestlers who took part in the show. The winning bid was a whopping $500 and the winner gave the chair directly back to the Arnold family to keep.

We at MWR never get tired of hearing about a promotion and wrestlers supporting the fans. We salute 3XW with the Promotion of the month for February.

LWA Feb. 21 Arena Report

Posted by reimaginejournalism on March 2, 2009

By Kari Williams

LWA put on their best show of the year Feb. 21 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in House Springs, MO with 130 in attendance. From the opening match to the main event, there was not a single match that left fans disappointed.

The much anticipated and promoted six-man tag match for the LWA Tag Team Titles kicked off the night, as Evan Gelistico, Pierre Abernathy and Davey Vega tried to take down K.C. Karrington, Steven Kennedy and Gary the Barnowl. Gary and Abernathy started the match up and fought relentlessly.

However, Abernathy began to overpower Gary, giving the Submission Squad the early advantage. The moment that Gary tagged Kennedy, everything changed. Kennedy cleared the house and delivered the patented “Go That Way!” kick to Gelistico with the help of Karrington. It was not long until Abernathy was back in the ring and taking control, allowing Vega and Gelistico to double and triple team their opponents. Halfway through the bout, Tiffani LaFane cornered a confused Gary and convinced him to walk with her backstage, giving the Squad an extra advantage. Unfortunately  , LaFane’s cunning work was not up to par, becaue the Egos had more fire after Gary and LaFane flew the coop and dominated in the three on two situation to retain the tag titles.

“Future” Donovan Ruddick and XXX Jordan Lacey came to the ring next, talking about their match against LWA Heavweight Champion Jeremy Wyatt and the LWA Vice President Jewels. They proclaimed that they would rid LWA of Jewels and Wyatt, which prompted the VP to make her way to ringside.

She confessed that she cannot compete in the match and offered Ruddick a title shot against Wyatt as a settlement. Jewels also stated that “Thee” Brandon Espinosa—who came to prove the claim—would be Wyatt’s replacement in the match. Commissioner Adam Raw felt that Lacey needed a substitute as well and announced that Mark Sterling would do the honors.

After that debacle, Shorty Biggs and Dingo wrestled an impressive bout—one of Biggs’ best to date. Biggs appeared more focused on the task at hand than in previous months, and it showed, seeing as he made Dingo scratch and claw for a victory.

Filled with technical wrestling and pure athleticism, these men went toe-to-toe, with each man only mere milliseconds away from securing a win. In the end, with both men fighting with everything, Dingo defeated Biggs, who offered his hand to Dingo as a sign of respect.

Super Electro took on Shamus O’ Flannery in an electrifying, fast-paced bout. Complete with an electrical shock to O’ Flannery and multiple high-risk maneuvers on O’ Flannery’s part, it was hard to find anyone who did not enjoy this match.

Although not lengthy, O’ Flannery proved his worth when he secured his first victory since returning to LWA over Electro after a frog splash.

The ever-flamboyant Mike Sydal was in action next against “The Technical Messiah” Nick Tyson, in what one best describe as a personality conflict. When Sydal came to the ring, he declared that he is tight, tan and toned. Not one to sit around and wait for a fight, Tyson took it to Sydal, who put up an extroardinary fight in which each man scored multiple near falls. Sydal attempted to gain a pyschological advantage, but to no avail.

Tyson’s experience and tenacity in the ring far outweighed Sydal’s mind games. Sydal’s antics only seemed to anger The Technical Messiah, but Sydal did not go down willingly and even used submission holds against Tyson.

In the end, the flamboyant interim member of B.A.B.E.WATCH succumbed to pain and tapped out to the Gateway City Stretch.

After the match, Abernathy emerged to attack Tyson, which was followed by the entire Submission Squad and Gary.

Dingo made the save for Tyson with the aid of a steel chair, chasing the Squad away. Tyson and Dingo then revealed an alliance through a handshake.

Once the intermission ended, LWA President Luke Roberts and Raw came out to celebrate Mardi Gras and throw beads to the fans. Roberts then brought up the former LWA wrestler he wanted to bring back, and Raw revealed that he himself was the only wrestler who would stand up for the fans and bleed LWA. Jewels then brought up the fact that Raw turned his back on LWA one year ago, stated that Raw would have to work his way up and she will make it as difficult as possible.

“Irresistably Flawless” Brandon Aarons took on the masked newcomer Dash Rando. Unsure of Rando, Aarons looked reluctant to begin.

Rando quickly got the fans on his side, while the fans got to Aarons with their catcalls and accusations. Despite being new to LWA, Rando put up an impressive fight against Aarons, but Aarons held his own and did his best to overpower Rando.

Ultimately, Rando’s abstract arsenal proved too much for the “Irresistably Flawless” one, and Rando racked up his first victory with the company.

Aarons’ counter-part, Espinosa, was in action next, teaming with Jewells against Lacey and Sterling. In, essentially, a two-on-one bout, Espinosa started off against Sterling and did his best to hold his own.

Being unable to tag his partner, who refused, severely hindered his chances of winning for the team, especially when Lacey and Sterling began making frequent tags.

At one point, when Espinosa was down, Lacey nearly got his hands on Jewels, but, out of nowhere, Sterling lunged at his partner, and prevented him from doing so.

Jewels waited on the outside and Espinosa walked away as Dorian Victor came to attack Lacey, ending the bout in a no-contest.

The main event, with Ruddick challenging Wyatt for the Heavweight Title, proved how much these two competitors want that belt. They held nothing back, and Wyatt began attacking Ruddick before the bell even rang, trying to gain the unfair advantage.

Wyatt’s underhanded tactics did nothing to deter the 6’9” monster, who terrorized Wyatt inside and outside the ring. At one point, Ruddick had Wyatt in the air and planned to slam him into a table located next to the entrance ramp, but Wyatt countered and sent Ruddick flying.

After regaining his composure and focus, Ruddick went for, and connected with, his impressive powerbomb that sent Wyatt clear across the ring.

Before Ruddick had a chance to cover Wyatt for the three count, Sterling and Victor interfered, allowing Wyatt to steal the win with a roll up.

Sterling disclosed that after his match against Wyatt back in June that he knew they had to team up. He went on to say that Wyatt is the champion and the brains, and he is the muscle in the group. Then he made it known that Victor was never poor, that it was just a cover up, and Jewells was behind all of it.

To find out how this feud develops, do not miss the second LWA Double Shot on March 6 and 7. The first night is in Granite City, IL and the second in O’ Fallon, IL. For more information go to lwawrestling.com.

NWA-Presents Dynamo Pro Wrestling returned to Kansas in Ottawa was a success for everyone involved. The touching fundraiser for New Heart for Jimmie Bass was a rousing success. Kansas fans showed that they care for others by showing up in droves (275) to support the cause along with watching some great wrestling. With some of the top young wrestlers to their disposal, expect NWA Dynamo to be a force in the Midwest.

Serial Thriller” Shane Rich V. Edmund “Livewire” McGuire

1-24-2009

West Frankfort, Illinois

(All American Pro Wrestling)

 

These guys delivered big for AAPW to start the year. Rich and McGuire had the crowed in suspense and disbelief in what they were seeing. A great chess match between two of the young guns on the Midwest. Edmund came very close to going home with the AAPW heavyweight title but on this night Shane Rich was the one who got his hand raised.
