A High Risk Show Pays off in Warsaw

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 13, 2016

On February 27, 2016 High Risk Wrestling, a St. Louis mainstay since 2014, brought their brand of wrestling to the small town of Warsaw, Mo. Frank Thurman, the owner of High Risk Wrestling, recently decided to move his shows from the St. Louis area to Warsaw.

The show was highlighted with the first round of a tournament to decide who the new High Risk Heavyweight Champion was going to be after Blake Belakis relinquished the title shortly before the move.

In the first match of the tournament we saw “The Yoga Monster” Mike Sydal pick up an impressive victory over Paco.

 photo 55_zpssdfm84l5.jpg

 photo 60_zpsy6vazup9.jpg

The two high flyers put on an amazing match to open the show and really got the crowd of over a hundred people into the show from the start.

The show wasn’t just about the tournament though, The Magic Man  introduced the crowd to a special attraction.

 photo 71_zps58suy8cb.jpg

All the way from Japan, Kiyoshi Shizaka made his debut with the Magic Man issuing an open challenge on his behalf. As fast as his Monster fueled legs could carry him John E. Rock was in the ring and hyped for the challenge.
 photo 109_zpsco3dsq6a.jpg

 photo 118_zpsolkehqwu.jpg

 photo 121_zpsj8jbbac2.jpg

In an impressive display of aerial maneuvers and super quick feet Shizaka proved to be a little too much for the crowd favorite, and beat Rock with a backslide pin. Showing his respect to the better man that night Rock bowed to his opponent before exiting the ring.

The theme of the night seemed to be sportsmanship and respect for one’s opponent up to that point in the night, but when Tyler Copeland extended his hand to Jack Gamble in the next quarter final match for the High Risk Championship bout, Gamble was treated to a boot to the gut for his trouble.
 photo 147_zpshjnnbic3.jpg

 photo 151_zpsyvet47hw.jpg

 photo 162_zpstp6aat2t.jpg

Gamble shook it off and went to work on Copeland. The two men had a great back and forth match with multiple two counts, but Copeland decided Gamble came to close one too many times. With a quick low blow while the ref’s back was turned Copeland rolled up Gamble for the win.

Next up the ultra-charismatic bad guy Elvis Aliaga took on The Math-Magician in the third quarter final match in the tournament.

 photo 209_zpsah7zfdtj.jpg

 photo 227_zpsqtptliy3.jpg

 photo 217_zpsfadx159g.jpg

Elvis tried to confuse his opponent before the match even started with some impossible math problems, but they proved to be no problem for the Magician. Unfortunately, Aliaga himself proved to be a problem as he pinned him 1-2-3 to advance to the next round of the tournament.

The final match in the tournament that night saw two veterans, Tony Kozina and Jeremy Wyatt, in a one on one match that was easily main event material. As the two battled back and forth in the ring, “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton took an interest in the match and came out to ringside to observe. Eaton’s distractions kept Wyatt off his game just enough for Kozina to pick up the win and advance to the next round in the tournament.
 photo 305_zpsfdj24gol.jpg

 photo 328_zpsssz2qnyz.jpg

 photo 322_zpsnc4i1gzv.jpg

Obviously unhappy with the result of the match, Wyatt confronted the legend which quickly escalated from verbal confrontation to Wyatt laying Eaton out with a punch to the jaw. With all four matches in the tournament in the books we will see Mike Sydal, Tyler Copeland, Elvis Aliaga, and Tony Kozina advance to the semi-final round on April 23rd to decide who the next High Risk Champion will be.

 photo 4_zpsc4jcuvly.jpg

The newly coined MWR Missouri Championship was on the line next as champion Ricky Cruz defended his title against Brandon Aarons and his manager Garrett “Freakin” Williams.

 photo HRWFEBLIGHT-411_zpsleh6wa8c.jpg

 photo 418_zpsklnjlleh.jpg

After much primping and preening by Aarons the match finally got underway. In a spectacular display of power and agility Cruz seemed to have Aarons number at every turn. Even with the constant interference of manager Williams, including choking the champion in the bottom rope and a jab to the throat from Aaron’s brush, Cruz came out on top retaining the coveted Missouri Title.

 photo 425_zpsi0lditqe.jpg

The main event of the night was for High Risk Wrestling Tag Team Titles. Champions Mike Outlaw and Justin D’air took on the up and coming Riegel Twins to see who the best tag team in High Risk Wrestling was. Both teams were firing on all eight cylinders that night as they threw everything they had at each other. The Riegel Twins, who are relatively new to the wrestling scene, already have an impressive collection of tandem moves in their arsenal had their hands full with the champion duo of Outlaw & D’air.

 photo 498_zpsx5qjapyw.jpg

 photo 501_zpsm2kqtc2j.jpg

 photo 527_zpsm0izgtnf.jpg

In an impressive display from both teams they battled back and forth and showed the crowd exactly why they all deserved to be in that championship match. With D’air on the shoulders of Logan, Sterling climbed to the top rope and delivered a devastating flying clothesline that put D’air down for the three count winning them their first tag team title victory in High Risk Wrestling.

After the match all four men shook hands in a show of respect even though a dejected Mike Outlaw was visibly upset about the loss of his belt.  Unfortunately, after hands were shook all around and the Riegels left the ring

 photo 533_zpsdf9q246i.jpg

 photo 536_zpsymvnxwsp.jpg

Outlaw, who was becoming more visibly upset as the celebration went on, took out his frustration on his partner D’air. Taking three referees and the Riegel Twins to pull him off the prone D’air, Outlaw left the ring only to be met by Bobby Eaton. For a second we prepared for a confrontation, but were surprised when Eaton simply raised his hand and nodded in approval to end the show.

With great stories told more through wrestling than talking, new wrestlers with different styles most haven’t seen before, diverse highly entertaining performers, and an overall family friendly atmosphere High Risk Wrestling really delivered for its audience. If this show is any indicator of the product Frank Thurman will continue to build on, his brand of wrestling is one we can expect many great shows from in the future. There is no doubt Warsaw Missouri has a new asset in their town.

Elite Aggression Shakes Up The WLW Tag Team Division by Patrick Brandmeyer

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 13, 2015

Photos Brian “Flair” Kelley

Fans attending the World League Wrestling event on June 26th expected to see new Tag Team Champions being crowned…but an unexpected team walked out with the gold that night.

The night started with the roster assembled at ringside for a ten-bell salute. Several legends of the wrestling business had recently passed away and those in attendance paid tribute to “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, Tommy Rogers, “Nature Boy” Buddy Landell, and Cora Combs.

The opening match saw Jon Webb made his triumphant return from Japan as he faced Michael Magnuson of the Black Hand Warriors. Webb had learned a lot in his stint with the NOAH promotion as he went toe-to-toe with the bigger and stronger Magnuson.

Jon Webb is back!!

Magnuson nearly powered his way to victory, but Webb surprised him with a rana into a pinning combination for the win.

 photo 1_zpsm04yqycm.jpg

“Dangerous” Derek McQuinn had been on a roll since his return to action, but the fans were on the side of his opponent John E. Rock. Rock had momentum on his side due to the support of the audience at the Harley Race Wrestling Arena, but the former WLW Heavyweight Champion had the edge in experience as well as underhanded tactics. When Rock climbed to the top turnbuckle, Dangerous Derek shoved the referee into the ropes to knock his opponent off balance.
 photo 2_zpsicueruwz.jpg

 photo 8_zps8jnngfui.jpg

Rock tumbled to the mat and Derek took advantage of the situation, winning with his trademark spear.

“The Legacy” Leland Race had a tough test as he defended his WLW Championship against “The Ego” Dustin Bozworth.

 photo 7_zpsfsvuqgrm.jpg

The challenger had recently appeared on “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Ranch show and was hoping to ride that fame to greater in-ring success. However, Race had held the title since November and wasn’t planning on his reign being ended so soon.

 photo 5_zps4amncnn8.jpg

Leland Race rocks the Ego with a beautiful dropkick.

 photo 6_zpsm06orsjl.jpg

Bozworth seemingly had control of the match when Superstar Steve Fender and Dangerous Derek attacked the champion, causing a disqualification win for the titleholder. Bozworth didn’t participate in the two-on-one beatdown as the pair had just ruined his chance at winning the belt…when Fender teased a cash-in of his Harley Race Invitational Tournament trophy for an impromptu title match with Leland, Bozworth’s presence made him reconsider and Fender left the ring with McQuinn.

Fan Favorite Stacey O’Brien

A long-standing rivalry continued as Stacey O’Brien defended the WLW Women’s Championship against “Miss Natural” Heather Patera.

 photo 21_zpsi8b6czbo.jpg

Miss Natural won the title for the first time in 2002 and has held it a record-setting seven times in total. However, Stacey’s first title win came at Miss Natural’s expense in 2008 and the two have been battling since that time. On the heels of their best-of-five-match series over the belt, Stacey was a six-time champion and was hoping to close the book on the long rivalry However, the bout ended in controversy as a pinning combination seemed to leave both women’s shoulders on the canvas. Miss Natural thought she had won, but Stacey got a shoulder off the mat and was declared the winner.

 photo 22_zps1ktheqin.jpg

Miss Natural taunts the crowd and lets them know that at the Night of Champions she is coming for her WLW Ladies Championship

Miss Natural angrily grabbed the title belt before it could be presented to the champion…she wanted the feud to end as well and she challenged Stacey to a best-of-three-falls match at the Night Of Champions event in August. Stacey accepted the offer and the two shook hands, but Miss Natural kicked her in the midsection and laid her out with the Natural Disaster!

When Jon Webb and Jack Gamble left for their tour of NOAH, the WLW Tag Team Titles were declared vacant and a four-team tournament was held to determine the next champions. The Black Hand Warriors duo of Dave DeLorean and Jayden Fenix had defeated John E. Rock and Matt Creed to advance; on the other side of the bracket, the upstart team of Kickin’ Kyle Roberts and Justin D’Air scored a huge upset over Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek. However, Roberts suffered a broken collarbone in the matchup and Brandon Espinosa substituted for him in the tournament finale.

 photo 16_zpsamww9cba.jpg

 photo 17_zps4yk1zo4g.jpg

 photo 18_zps2tgxbgnx.jpg

Despite their limited experience as a unit, Espinosa and D’Air worked well together; however, DeLorean and Fenix had the advantage in tag team continuity. They gained the advantage when DeLorean dropped Espinosa onto the edge of the ring with a modified Death Valley Driver, but Espy finally managed to make the tag to D’Air. D’Air lived up to his name as he flew around the ring, culminating in a huge somersault plancha onto DeLorean and a Van Terminator-style dropkick with DeLorean seated in the adjacent corner. Espy powerslammed DeLorean and D’Air followed up with his 450 Splash, but Fenix broke up the pinfall attempt in time.

 photo 15_zpsysjbtxyn.jpg

 photo 14_zpslzgokzdc.jpg

 photo 13_zpsbpprfzvp.jpg

DeLorean and Fenix rallied and were able to take Espinosa out of the match long enough to finish off D’Air with their Tombstone/flying double-stomp combination…DeLorean pinned D’Air after that and the Black Hand Warriors were once again Tag Team Champions!

 photo 12_zpsi2bbevfm.jpg

The night wasn’t quite over…as DeLorean and Fenix celebrated their win, Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek attacked them from behind! The teams battled it out, but Steve and Derek had the advantage over the worn-down champions…and Steve revealed that he could cash in his trophy for ANY title shot, electing to use it for an impromptu challenge for the tag belts!

 photo 11_zpsodgvtxwa.jpg

Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek strike!

 photo 10_zps9xesvth0.jpg

The former Gold Exchange members isolated the less-experienced Fenix and Derek took him down with a spear…the referee barely had time to call for an official opening bell before he was counting Derek’s pinfall! Just like that, we saw new WLW Tag Team Champions crowned for the second time in the span of a few minutes!

 photo 9_zpslupfkdov.jpg

The night provided more questions than answers…will the Black Hand Warriors be the unlikely fan favorites against the newly-named “Elite Aggression” duo?

 photo 4_zpswkk506xk.jpg

WLW Tag Team Champions Superstar Steve and Dangerous Derek

Will they be on the same side as their old rivals Gamble and Webb, who just recently got back from Japan and will surely be wanting their belts back? Where does Michael Magnuson stand after being noticably absent while his partners were being screwed out of the championships? We don’t know the answers to those questions yet, but the fans certainly saw a memorable night of action in Troy!

History was Made in Otterville, Missouri, Devyn Nicole Wins the WLW Ladies Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 15, 2014

 photo 2_zps5df1233c.jpg

WLW was filled with exciting and shocking moments in Otterville, Missouri last night as fans were on the edge of their seats from the start.

With the debut of WLW trainee Kyle Roberts, plus a man that my friend Jack Tierney calls the “Giant Killer” (after victories over Mark Sterling and former WLW Champion Brian Breaker) Jon Webb once again upset Sterling, and a new tag team of John E. Rock and Jamell Harris proved that they could take a beating as the Black Hand Warriors left them bloody and battered. WLW Champion Elvis Aliaga proved once again that he will do whatever it will take to hold onto his Championship as he delivered vicious shot with the belt to Jack Gamble secure a victory as referee Richard White was knocked out .

While fans had a lot to be excited about it would be a historical moment in the young career of Devyn Nicole when she was able to defeat Stacey O’Brien for the WLW Ladies Championship. Nicole who has trained under Mr. Hughes (a man that had been managed by the “Greatest Wrestler on Gods Green Earth Harley Race in WCW.) In the past Nicole had been overmatched several times against the 2-time MWR Female Wrestler of the Year, O’Brien, but in a quick moment Nicole proved that she has the championship quality of never giving up as she was able to have her hand raised in victory.

Via the new WLW Ladies Champion Devyn Nicole Facebook page we were able to get a statement from her on her feelings of the night “Tonight, I became your WLW Women’s Champion! Special thanks to Mr. Harley Race for the opportunity to make a home with his company

 photo dn_zps281e7be0.jpg

Winning a Championship is truly an accomplishment but now the young Nicole is the hunted when she walks into the danger zone in Richmond, Missouri on April 19th when the stars of WLW return. Already signed for the new Champ will be a three way match against two of the top female stars in country Stacey O’Brien and the current MWR Female Wrestler of the Year “Miss Natural” Heather Patera .

For more information on this exciting night be sure to check out the WLW website and MWR for updates as they come in.
