3XW to showcase historic 60 minute NO DQ Iron man match January 7th,2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 27, 2010

By Brian Kelley

On January 7th, 2011 in Des Moines Iowa at 3XW two of the greatest wrestlers today Mark Sterling and Jeremy Wyatt will go to war in a historic 60 Minute  NO DQ Iron Man match. Both of these individuals have been Champions around the Midwest and are former MWR Wrestlers of the year.

In a world where respect is earned and not given, Wyatt and Sterling are the measuring sticks for those in the game today. From Kansas to Illinois to Missouri and all the way to Des Moines Iowa they are main event athletes that the fans want to know if they are on the card.

The time has come for Wyatt to finally put his money where his mouth is…. He’s been talking crap for years that he’s the best… Well I have news for him, there is one guy that is a bit better: ME. Wyatt doesn’t train in the gym 4 times a day like I do. He doesn’t dominate Crossfit competitions. “The Fittest Wrestler on Earth” isn’t just a gimmick for me, it’s the honest to God truth. Wyatt hasn’t spent the better part of 8 years training at Harley Race’s school like me. Wyatt didn’t train the 2009 Rookie of the Year Mike Sydal, I did… Nobody in this area works their fingers to the bone as much as I do. Nobody even comes close and that’s a shoot. As good as Wyatt is and everything he’s accomplished, he’s about to get hit with a dose of reality January 7th in 3xw. I have 60 minutes to prove to all the “experts” and “insiders” that I am not only the best on the Midwest, but on the fast track to being one of the best in the world!”- Mark Sterling

Mark Sterling is a man who is pure muscle with seemingly limitless intensity, who lives and breaths wrestling. A great build with a desire to become the best, Sterling has been under the watchful eye of Harley Race at World League Wrestling and recently took part in Ohio Valley Wrestling’s training camp that featured great wrestling minds such as Jim Cornette, Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore, Danny Davis and Rip Rogers.

Sterling’s path would take him to both singles and tag team glory in the past few years. At 3xw he has been a former 3XW Pure Champion and a former tag team Champion with former allies the Gentleman’s Club. Winning and being the best is everything for Sterling and his claim to the best in the Midwest was only strengthen when he defeated Michael Strider for the NWA Central States Championship last year.

Mark Sterling is bigger than me, stronger than me, has a better build than me, can do more sit ups and push ups than me, goes to the gym 27 times a day, can eat more tacos than me, has had better training than me… Hell, I basically paid a guy a grand and ending up training myself and tryin to figure it out as I went along. Why wouldn’t Sterling think he’s better? But therein lies the difference, Sterling thinks he’s better… I know i’m better, the best. The simple truth is this, for every advantage he has, I have one that trumps them all, I’m tougher… Mentally and physically. I punch harder, I kick harder and there’s no one who can absorb punishment like me, and that’s with having a body that’s falling apart. I have a severe sciatic nerve problem in my lower back, ligament damage in my left wrist, calcium deposits in my right elbow, dizzy spells from a concussion over a year ago but yet when it’s a “big match” no one, and I mean absolutely no one puts on a show like I do. January 7th, its gonna be time to put on a show” -“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt

Wyatt’s nickname is the Rebel, a man who has done what he wanted to do in the ring with no remorse or regret. He could be the most hated man in all the Midwest. Yet the Rebel has shown a love for great competition and winning titles. Winning titles all around the Midwest is the reason why he earned another nickname The Belt Collector.

Wyatt would add the coveted 3XW Championship on August 21, 2009 against the then fan favorite Devin Carter. He would terrorize and dominate the promotion for close to a year till July 9,2010 when the talented Rory Fox would upset Wyatt to become one of the very few to make claim as a man to have a victory against the Rebel.

In the past these two men have teamed up but the question always remained, just who is the best in the Midwest?

Who has the advantage in this epic battle  where the object is to get the most pinfalls and submissions in that 60 minute time limit?

Lets break it down.

Power and size – Sterling clearly has the edge. Standing 6’2 and 221 barrel-chested like a Greek God, he has broken the will of half the wrestlers in the Midwest before the first bell rang. Wyatt gives up 2 inches and 20 pounds to Sterling, but no one uses execution on offense like the Rebel to withstand a bigger wrestler onslaught.

Can Sterling impose his strength in the match early on to get the edge he needs ?

Power and Size Advantage Mark Sterling– Is there any wrestler more obsessed with conditioning. In boxing the smaller guys are often said to best pound for pound fighter in the game. How scary is it that Sterling standing  6’2 221 could very well fit that bill in the Midwest. The man is a machine. Wyatt will have his hands full trying to slow down Sterling.

Stamina speed and air attack,-Wyatt has excelled beating men much bigger than he is, while he does pull out all stops with punching, kicking and scratching, I am here to say that it is just all smokes and mirrors to keep his opponent to realize just how versatile Wyatt is and the speed he possess. Sterling may be impressive with his stone cut body, but it’ his training regimen of CROSSFIT that allows him to have a style that can allow him to go all out for 60 minutes without a problem. Wyatt has shown a willingness to go to the air while Sterling prefers to ground and pound you.

Stamina, speed and air attack advantage- EVEN

Finishers-

Sterling is the owner of the Markshooter a variation of Stings Scorpion Deathlock or Bret Harts Sharpshooter. I would be rich if I got a dollar every time that I was at ringside taking photographs during his match that he locked this move in on his opponents in the feared Markshooter. The end result is always the same. Tap out or leave in pieces, either way I have a who’s who in photographs of some of the best in the sport on the wrong side of this painful move. To tell you how effective the Markshooter is, he has so much confidence in it, he uses it in tag team action and has still been able to pick up the win.

Wyatt will also have to be on the lookout for an explosive spear that Sterling has been adding to his arsenal of weapons. Will Sterling look to get a win off of Wyatt with the Markshooter, and once the bell rings and before Wyatt can get strength back in his legs will Sterling drill him with the spear to pick up a two fall lead?

Wyatt brings to the battle the lightning spiral, a move that is viscous in appearance and even more so for the final result for the unlucky soul that gets hit with it. He has perfected the maneuver with such precision that it has been his trademark on route to title after title. Even more impressive is how quick he is able to deliver the move.

Wyatt is a master of leverage and it also shows with his other finisher the crossface. The move has been deadly for his opponents with Wyatt brutalizing them by pulling their head backwards while having their legs wrapped up with no place to go. Sterling is a big guy, but with Wyatt locking him in a position where his power is neaturalized, this is a move that Wyatt will be wanting to use to take him to victory.

Finishers Advantage – EVEN

Confidence and momentum –

What has set Wyatt a part from almost everyone in the Midwest is his ability to stay cool under pressure. In big matches with Tyler Black, Davey Richards and Al Snow, Wyatt wrestles like its another day at the park. We have seen Wyatt cause near riots in promotions, and you can see the frustration and defeat in his opponents eyes throughout the match.

Sterling is cocky, brash and rightfully so, he is as well trained as anyone in the game today. The problem is does he truly believe it? We have seen in many matches in the past where he lost his composure and tends to showboat. Sterling has been impressive in the past with pinfall victories over Chase Stevens, Colt Cabana and a huge win over the Monster Abyss in a brutal ladder match. On the flip side , Sterling has found defeat at the hands of Snow, Black and Jerry Lynn , all three men that the Rebel can boast he has had his hand raised.

With Wyatt already leading in the series, can Sterling overcome the doubts that the Wyatt has planted in his head?

The scary thing for the Rebel is that Sterling is and even BETTER wrestler than he was when the MWR Awards committee voted him as the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year. Sterling has been dominate in 2010 at WLW with Steve Fender as one half of the WLW Tag Champs, won the 2010  3XW King of Des Moines Championship, trained once again at the WLW/Noah camp and followed that up with a training camp at Ohio Valley Wrestling. Last but not least he was able to submidt arguably the greatest wrestler in the world today Davey Richards.

Confidence and momentum Advantage Jeremy Wyatt – With a history of wins in big matches, it is easier to name the matches that he has lost due to the fact that it is so rare. With Wyatt already in Sterling’s head is this match already the Rebel’s ?

Final verdict-

This could very well be the most important match in the future of the Midwest. Both men are highly touted as men who could very well be the best in the country that have not had a run with Ring of Honor, TNA or WWE.

Both know each other very well before going to war to see who truly is the best wrestler in the Midwest today. The longest 60 minutes in each of these two lives will be on the stage for the world to see.

Will Sterling look to overpower Wyatt early and push his weight around? Can Wyatt break Sterling mentally?

My advice for Wyatt is, if Sterling locks in the Markshooter, if you are unable to get out right away, tap quickly. Sterling has the move to perfection and the damage is done in a blink of an eye.

My Advice for Sterling, do not get overconfident and let the Rebel suck you in to thinking you are safe. You are never safe. Wyatt for all of his antics is always thinking and looking to deliver the big blow.

MWR Prediction- Jeremy Wyatt wins 3 to  Mark Sterling’s 2

MWR Trading Card #18 MR Late Nite

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 17, 2010

HWC Champion Donovan Ruddick and MR Late Nite

Missouri Wrestling Revival is proud to announce the newest addition to our trading card set – Mr. Late Nite. He is our first manager in the set and he has caused quite a bit of commotion in the Midwest wrestling scene since he came back to the business in 2009. The self proclaimed “Hollywood Super Agent” has gotten his fair share of jeers from the fans of Independent Hardcore Wrestling (IHW) and Pro Wrestling Epic (PWE), where he currently manages “The Future” Donovan Ruddick. Vests, ties, glasses, khakis, rolled up sleeves, and a sharp wit are all trademarks of this very talented up and coming manager.

We’d also like to take the time and give some respect to an often overlooked part of wrestling shows – the managers. A lot of our favorite memories involving big names in the wrestling industry wouldn’t have been possible without them. Who would have been the mouthpiece for Andre the Giant in his heated rivalry with Hulk Hogan if there was no Bobby Heenen? Who would have remembered the rivalries that the Midnight Express were involved in if it weren’t for the great ringside presence and promo work of Jim Cornette? Managers lend their gift of gab to performers who would rather let their wrestling do the talking. They have been an important part of this business for decades and we are honored to have one of wrestling’s most exciting new managers to our trading card set. We are sure that Mr. Late Nite will continue to deliver great promos and entertain fans wherever he goes with his unique brand of showmanship.

Mr. Late Nite can be seen on Pro Wrestling NEXT’s “Genesis” show on September 10 in Moline, IL and Independent Hardcore Wrestling’s show on September 11 in Waterloo, IL. On both shows he will managing “The Future” Donovan Ruddick.

Come out and support these two great companies and support managers in professional wrestling. Thank you very much and pick up one of these great trading cards today! Be sure to look up Mr. Late Nite on Facebook and join his fan page!

Here is a brief rundown of the 7 former WWE Stars with the lineup for a night you wont forget.

 

 

 Jake Roberts

 

Jake “The Snake” Roberts is considered one of the most talented promo guys in the sport. He is the inventor of one of the most influential moves in wrestling history, the DDT.  His classic feuds with Ricky Steamboat and Rick Rude are still talked about today. Jake often brings in a live snake to the ring which he would put on top of his opponents after knocking them out with the DDT to win the match. One of the most discussed wrestlers in the past 3 decades; you do not want to miss Jake “The Snake “Roberts.  

 

Cowboy Bob Orton

 

The Father of Randy Orton, Cowboy Bob Orton’s legacy in the sport has been cemented with the honor of being named a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. Nicknamed Ace by Roddy Piper, Bob Orton was Pipers body guard when WWE took over the world in the 80’s. Bob always wore a cast on his left forearm claiming he was healing from an injury during a 1985 battle with Jimmy Snuka, but opponents would have to watch out because Cowboy would in turn use the cast as weapon.

 

Honky Tonk Man

 

The Honky Tonk Man is one of the most charismatic wrestlers ever to grace the sport. He has headlined major WWE arenas with around the country. The Honky Tonk Man will be the first to tell you that he is “The greatest Intercontinental Champion of All Time”. Defeated Ricky the Dragon Steamboat on June 2, 1987 and did not relinquish the title until 454 days later to the Ultimate Warrior.  The Honky Tonk Man thrills the fans with singing his unforgettable entrance theme, “Cool, Cocky, Bad,”.

 

 

Pat Tanaka

 

 Pat Tanaka has thrilled fans around the world in organizations such as AWA. NWA, New Japan and WWE. One half of the tag team The Orient Express with Akio Sato, who was managed by Mr. Fuji. Matches with the Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) thrilled fans high profile, high flying match at the 1991 Royal Rumble. The Orient Express were ranked in the PWI 100 Tag teams during the “PWI years”

 

 

Danny Basham

 

Danny is one half of the 2 time WWE Tag Team Champions with Doug Basham. Trained by Jim Cornett and Danny Davis at Ohio Valley Wrestling. He has the perfect balance of speed and power to overwhelm his opponents. This is your chance to see Danny before he is called back to the WWE or TNA

 

Rosey

 

 Rosey is a member of the famous Samoan family, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson being one of his cousins. When the wrestler Hurricane “discovered” Rosey’s potential as a superhero, he christened him “Rosey, the Super Hero in Training”.  The two would go on and win the WWE Tag Team Championship together. Since leaving WWE, Rosey has kept busy around the world.

 

 

Tracy Smothers

 

The Wild Eyed Southern Boy Tracy Smothers, is one to never back down from a fight.  Tracy can get under wrestlers and fans skins alike with his actions and words. Tracy has been in WWE, WCW and ECW in his illustrious career.  He is one of the most traveled wrestlers in the sport today. 

 

Moondog Cujo

 

One of the famous Moondog’s. The Moondogs were known for wrestling in blue jeans, sporting shaggy blond hair and beards and carrying animal bones around with them (which they would chew on and use as weapons) Cujo would be honored with the Professional Wrestling Illustrated 1993 Feud of the year in 1993 when they thrilled fans with their matches with Jerry Lawler and Jeff Jarrett.
