MMWA-SICW June 13 Recap

Fans noticed white tape around nearly every wrestler’s arm at South Broadway Athletic Club on June 13 as they made their way to the ring. The name “Faith” appeared on that tape. Whether loved or hated by the crowd, virtually the entire locker room paid homage to MMWA-SICW Ring Announcer Tim Miller’s two-year-old niece who died in a car fire on June 1. The night was dedicated to Faith Miller.

The returning Johnny Courageous took on A.J. Williams in a number one contender’s match for the Junior Heavyweight Championship. Williams came to the ring wearing a shirt commemorating the life of Faith Miller, much to the delight of the fans and Tim.

These two fan favorites wrestled a fast-paced, highly competitive bout worthy of main event status. Courageous gained a slight lead from the bell and never quite let go of it. Williams’ willpower was evident, as he did not give in easily. In fact, he went to the top turnbuckle on more than one occasion in hopes of delivering the final blow of defeat to Courageous. Multiple near falls and closecalls emerged as the athletes began running out of time. The bout ended in a time limit draw, with a number one contender for Vaughn’s belt still undecided.

Alexis Lightfoot defended her Women’s Championship against Destiny Diamond in the only championship match of the evening. The hatred between these two has grown tremendously since Diamond’s debut in the company. Diamond controlled the early portion of the bout, but choking Alexis on the ropes fueled the champion’s desire to retain her belt. Alexis came at Diamond with a flurry of forearms and punches, bringing victory closer. In spite of Diamond’s attempts to deter Alexis, nothing worked and Alexis retained her title in just over four minutes.

Phil E. Blunt and Vaughn had their hands full against World Heavyweight Champion Gary Jackson and Jerome Cody. Both teams worked well together, using frequent tags and double teams as much as possible. In typical Connection fashion, Blunt and Vaughn resorted to illegal tactics to control the battle.

Just before the 10-minute-mark, Blunt connected with a piledriver on Jackson, but the champion kicked out. Neither team could gain a clear advantage, which lead to frustration and anger for both teams. Cody launched from the top rope with a flying crossbody onto Vaughn, and chaos erupted shortly thereafter. Both teams were disqualified for the use of a chain, which came into the scuffle.

When the match ended, Blunt tried convincing Jackson that Cody only wanted to be his partner to get closer to the Heavyweight Championship, which caused some tension between the two men.

The previous contest showcased the return of the former MMWA-SICW Junior Heavyweight Champion Kahyman as he took on Lumberjack Gabe (with Abe) in his first match in over a year. Gabe proved his power by shoving Kahyman to the mat. Looking more determined than ever, Kahyman simply smirked to the crowd and bolted toward Gabe, who quickly ran to the outside toward safety. The referee threw out Abe due to interference, and Gabe used the distraction to take control and dictate the pace of the match.

Kahyman slowly worked his way from defeat, began targeting Gabe’s leg, and followed suit with a standing drop kick that knocked Gabe to his feet. Kahyman controlled the match from this moment on, hitting a swanton bomb and covering Gabe for the pin. Kahyman would have won the match at this point, but Abe emerged from the back and broke up the pin in plain view of the referee. However, the referee did not disqualify Gabe, and the match continued. Kahyman won via roll up when Abe attempted to interfere again and nearly collided with his brother. Junior Heavyweight Champion Dave Vaughn charged the ring to attack Kahyman after the bout. He was restrained and forced to the back.

Shaft, accompanied by Travis Cook, wrestled the Big Texan. They started off with a shoving contest, of which Texan easily got the upper hand.

Cook then called for a time out to help Shaft regroup, but Texan still dominated. At one point, Texan choked Shaft, who retaliated in the same manner. Moments later, Cook interfered and proceeded to jump up and down, run around the ring and prance toward Phil E. Blunt—recently arrived at ringside—and the two high fived as Cook proclaimed, “I’m a bad man!” Having gotten the advantage, Shaft began to target Texan’s ankle. Inbetween punishing his opponent, Shaft stopped to argue with a fan, giving Texan a chance to take the advantage, but to no avail. Shaft walked away with a roll up victory as he grabbed the tights for added leverage.

“The Exciting” Jaysin Static and Blade went at it in the second match of the evening. Static started off on the right foot, but after a mid-ring collision, it looked as if he injured his knee. Blade targeted the injury and almost pinned Static, but the exciting one’s determination never faltered. In fact, Static had control of the match from the five minute mark almost to the end. The exciting one nailed Blade with an impressive superkick, but it was not enough to put the larger man down for the count. Blade pulled out the win only moments later at 6:41.

In the opening contest, Moondog Rover tried to best Lumberjack Abe, despite Lumberjack Gabe’s presence at ringside. Rover weakened Abe’s left arm early on but could not put a stop to his opponent, who quickly changed the direction of the match. In spite of Abe’s determination, the moment that Rover resorted to his dog-like tactics, Abe lost his focus and never regained it.

Gabe appeared to sense his brother’s pending defeat, causing him to take Rover’s bone and taunt him. This act allowed Abe to sneak up on Rover and get a quick roll up victory.

The Kari Williams MMWA-SICW Recap

Posted by Admin on January 19, 2008

MMWA-SICW Recap for January 12, 2008

By Kari Williams
Heartfelt farewells. Backstabbing betrayals. Controversial refereeing. All of these events encompassed Mid-Missouri Wrestling Associaton-Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling (MMWA-SICW) January 12 show in East Carondelet, which started the year with a bang.

In the main event, Jerome Cody took on Jeremy Lightfoot, with Shaft as the special guest referee. Although a fairly even match up in the beginning, Lightfoot gained the advantage by the five minute mark, and the two competitors traded blows in the corner. While controlling the match, Lightfoot attempted his signature chops, but Shaft prevented him from doing so and forced Lightfoot out of the corner. Lightfoot ended up hitting Cody with a DDT but was unable to capitalize because he had a minor confrontation with Shaft. The match ended swiftly with each man having his shoulders down on the mat when Shaft began the count. However, Shaft only saw Cody raise his arm before the three count, therefore causing Lightfoot to lose the contest. The night ended with Lightfoot calling out Shaft, and when he didn’t come to the ring, Lightfoot went to the back to confront him. To see what develops further, one must venture to East Carondelet, Illinois on February 16.

The previous contest pitted Junior Heavyweight Champion A.J. Williams against one half of the newly crowned tag team champions, Dave Vaughn, in the first title match of the evening. Beginning with an exchange of holds, neither competitor gained a definitive lead over the other. Just after the five minute mark, Williams gained control, scoring a two count on the challenger. Williams then went to the top rope and connected with an elbow drop, but was unable to secure victory, as Vaughn’s foot rested on the bottom rope. In the closing moments, Vaughn prepared for a spear but Williams telegraphed it and leapfrogged over his opponent and landed a super kick on Vaughn for the win at 9:56.

In his final match with MMWA-SICW, Brandon Espinosa took on Saladin in a 20 minute time-limit bout. Espinosa gained the early advantage, aggravating Saladin with a test of strength challenge, but Saladin took over moments later. A fairly even match, with neither competitor gaining the upper hand for an extended length of time, Espinosa controlled the final minutes of his final match. He connected with a boot to the face and then hit his signature move, the mood swing, at the 10:14 mark. After having his hand raised in victory, Espinosa spent his final moments in an MMWA-SICW ring thanking the fans.

After a brief intermission, the MMWA-SICW title was on the line, pitting the champion, Kevin X, against fellow Connection member “Hot Shot” Tommy Knight. Before the bout even began, X asked Knight to lay down for the three count. But Knight, not wanting to let a golden opportunity such go to the wayside, said that he would fight. Though a fairly one-sided match, with X in control for the majority of the time, Knight hit a few key spots. One notable moment for Knight came near the closing stages of the bout when he connected with a flying cross body from the top rope and got a near fall on the champion, proving that he has what it takes to become a champion in the company. Nonetheless, X was able to secure his victory with a powerbomb and the three count at 10:56. Moments after the match had concluded, The Connection turned on X, beating him relentlessly, even going so far as to “pin” him in the middle of the ring, showing their true colors.

Kahyman was in action as well, battling Connection member, Phil E. Blunt with Jerome Cody. In the opening moments, Kahyman had a slight advantage which was quickly overturned by Blunt. By the five minute mark, Kahyman had gained the upper hand but only enough to capture a two count. Soon after the pin, Blunt scored with a powerbomb gaining a decisive advantage. Despite Blunt’s multiple attempts to pin Kahyman in the closing seconds of the ten minute match, the bout ended in a time-limit draw.

The second match of the night was between Moondog Rover and Brewer. Moondog had a clear advantage nearly the entire bout, with Brewer getting in little offense. Filled with typical Moondog shenanigans, Moondog barked at the fans, “peed” on the referee and tried to take the shoe of a fan in the front row. In the end, it was essentially Moondog who prevailed by getting the pin.

In the opening bout, one half of the newly crowned tag team champions, Mr. Bibbs, took on Waco. The action spilled to the outside early on with Waco gaining the advantage by the five minute mark. The first pin attempt came from Bibbs, with Waco getting his shoulder off of the mat at the two count. For the remainder of the match, Waco remained fairly dominate with Bibbs barely gaining an advantage. At the ten minute mark, Waco nailed Bibbs with a DDT and went for the quick pin but only got a two count. Waco then went for another DDT, securing himself the victory at 11:02.
