3XW – Over The Top Results 5/7/10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 12, 2010

Des Moines Social Club
1408 Locust St
Des Moines, IA

Thanks to the awesome crowd that packed the Des Moines Social Club for this excellent show!

1. 3XW Pure Wrestling champion “The Viking Warrior” Kraig Keesaman successfully defended the title over “The Right Price” Aaron Masterson after drilling him with the Nordic Spike in 8:48. Keesaman has now not been pinned or submitted in 23 months of competition.

Following the match, Hunter Matthews came out and addressed the crowd and Masterson, talking about losing to Masterson at Spring Showdown and talked about how ashamed his mother his of his actions is of late. He then proceeded to vicious assault Masterson with a brutal Piledriver. Due to the injuries Masterson sustained from the beatings at the hands of Matthews and Keesaman, he was unable to compete in the Gauntlet for the Gold later in the evening.

2. Malia Hosaka defeated Claudia Del Solis after an impressive facebuster in 11:36. Solis, an impressive newcomer to 3XW that won over the crowd, was accompanied at ringside by members of the Mid Iowa Rollers roller derby team, who have bouts on May 15th and May 22nd at Hy-Vee Hall. Visit http://www.midiowarollers.com for more details.

3. Mark Sterling beat Gage Octane by DQ in a wild match in 14:34 that saw Brian Ash and “Delicious” Devin Carter of the Gentlemen’s Club jump Sterling, only for Sterling to be saved by the Horndogs (Maddog McDowell and Krotch), which allowed Sterling to spear Octane and almost apply the Markshooter to Octane following the match. Luckily for Octane, his teammates outside the ring were able to pull him out of the hold. Sterling challenged all four members of the Gentlemen’s Club to an 8-man tag team match against Sterling, McDowell, Krotch and a partner to be announced at Downtown Destruction on June 4.

4. “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson defeated his High Flyers’ partner Mike Sydal following a Dublin Driver in a very emotional and hard fought “Loser Leaves 3XWrestling” match set up by 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman in 14:41. Following the match, both men shook hands and embraced in the ring while “American Pie” by Don McLean played over the speakers and the fans gave Sydal a standing ovation. Sydal walk around ringside after the match and shook hands with many of fans in the crowd.

5. 3XW Heavyweight champion “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt successfully defended his title over 3XW Cruiserweight champion “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell following a Cropduster DDT in a tremendous championship match in 25:34. Rockwell earned many nearfalls over the champ, leaving fans on the edge of their seats. The end of the match saw Wyatt laying on the mat and Rockwell going up to the top rope for his patented Rock On Bomb. 3XW Pure Wrestling champion Kraig Keesaman, who attacked Rockwell last month, stood at the top of the entrance ramp and distracted Rockwell while he was standing on the tunrbuckle. When Rockwell went for the move, Wyatt had recovered enough to roll out of the way before spiking Rockwell with the Cropduster DDT for the win.

6. Fifth Annual 25-Man Gauntlet for the Gold Battle Royal – Entrant No. 13 Rory Fox won the battle royal and a future 3XW Heavyweight championship match in 30:45 after eliminating Maddog McDowell and Brian Ash (entrants No. 1 and 2) last to win the match.

Tyler Cook made his return to 3XW as the final entrant (No. 25) and eliminated heavy-favorite Kraig Keesaman, who was distracted by Jimmy Rockwell on the outside of the ring.

“The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong (No. 10) was accompanied to the ring by his manager “The Laotian Liaison” Chad Mylan. Kwong put in a very impressive performance, eliminating the second-most competitors at three behind Rory Fox’s four. Every time Kwong eliminated an opponent, Mylan gleefully grabbed the microphone and proudly announced that Kwong had eliminated another opponent. Kwong’s run was finally ended when Fox threw him over the top rope, causing Mylan to go irate. The only competitors in the battle longer than Kwong were Maddog McDowell, Brian Ash and Devin Carter (No. 3). Mylan also introduced his new Mylan Management Agency (MMA). More details on the next episode of Outside the Ring.

– Fox also eliminated Gage Octane, who once again reached the final five of the Gauntlet for the Gold. Every year that Octane has competed, he’s reached the final five competitors, but he’s never won.

The Gentlemen’s Club and Sterling/Maddog McDowell/Krotch, opponents next month in the 8-man tag, targeted each other throughout the match. Ash violently eliminated Krotch, punching him in the face when Krotch tried to springboard back into the ring. Sterling eliminated Carter, last year’s winner. Brian Ash eliminated Mark Sterling as Sterling was battling with Octane.

Sexy and Smooth (Ryan Slade and A.J. Smooth) were eliminated by Jon West and Sir Bradley Charles. Sexy and Smooth have already challenged West and Charles to a tag team match on June 4 at Downtown Destruction.

– Former ring announcer KL Snow – the only ring announcer to ever lose a “Loser Leaves Town” stipulation – attempted to sneak his way into the battle royal and regain employment in 3XW, only to be quickly pushed aside upon entrance by the debuting Hamlet Azul (a masked European luchador and figure skating enthusiast) and directed backstage by 3XW officials.

– Other masked competitors included the Rebelucha (a confederate luchador), Ski Mask Malloy (martial arts master from the Ozarks), The Yellow Dog (eliminated by Ash after Ash threw Dog’s toy over the top rope and he jump over the rope to fetch it), and Disco Diablo En Fuego (a demonic dancing luchador).

– Besides the ones mentioned above, other returns and debuts included Jaysin Strife, David Clark, and Sparrow.

NWA Presents Dynamo Pro Wrestling recap 1-31-2009

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 23, 2009

dynamo-pro

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling returned to Kansas to start 2009 on January 30th for a good cause as proceeds were to go to “lil” Jimmie Bass to help him get a brand new heart. Former WWE Star Al Snow was to be in action with some of the best young talent in the Midwest so this show looked to have something for everyone.

Pierre Abernathy entered the ring with the unpopular Sadie Blaze by his side to take on the rising star Davey Vega. The crowd was really in Abernathy ear with chants like “Brush your teeth” just to name a few. Abernathy masterfully distracted the ref so that his manager was able to do damage from outside the ring. Abernathy controlled the match but Vega may have received the hit of the night when he kicked him so hard I was able almost feel the blow myself. Vega was able to get the pin fall much to the delight of the Dynamo fans.

A new guy to my knowledge was to wrestle next, Aaron Hawely, a young kid that was to take on the ever cocky Brandon Aarons. This match was between two guys that may lack the size but not the dedication in the weight room. Aarons was all business and went after Hawely with a vengeance. Aarons was dominating the match when out of nowhere Hawely used the ropes while holding onto Aarons head and turned it into reverse neck breaker

Power and speed would meet total meanness when Adam Rich and Trent Stone took on the Barrio Boys (Domino Rivera and Angel). Angel and Domino may come off as two thugs but you can not discount their knowledge as they work like a fine tune machine. The two constantly cut off the ring, not allowing Rich to tag his partner Stone. At one point, Rich had the advantage on Rivera but Rivera wisely maneuvered them into his corner where Angel was able to get the upper hand.

The glaring problem for the Barrio Boys would shine when Angel brought in boxing gloves to toy with Rich, it prompted the kids behind me to go nuts with “cheater” chants. Later Angel spanked Rich like a baby before snapping him into a suplex. It looked to be arrogance would cost them the match when Rich hit Angel with a kick, then Stone blasted him with a spear. When the ref Martin T went to send Rich back to his corner Rivera nailed Stone and sent Rich flying out of the ring. While Rivera was causing mass confusion Angel went for a low blow. Rivera quickly went back to his corner and Angel rolled up Stone for the win.

Kraig Kessman was to take on the flirt Mike Sydal. One may not like the way Sydal behaves but you can not deny the man’s ability. Kessman struggled early to get going on Sydal’s speed and unordinary attack.

The crowd was clearly on Kessman’s side when Sydal had Kessman in a Boston Crab encouraging Kessman to not give up. Sydal stayed on the offense for a long time but Kessman saw a light at the end of the tunnel when he planted one big boot and a frontward DDT for the win.

Billy McNeil and Shorty Biggs thrilled the fans with an exciting match that looked to go both ways at all times. On this night McNeil was able to get the victory against the ever popular Shorty Biggs.

During intermission Al Snow came to ring to sign autographs and take pictures. It seemed as if everyone wanted to get their picture taken with him and he looked to be more than happy to oblige.

When we returned from intermission I was ready for the first match in the triple main event. The LONRS (Mark Sterling and Darrien Sanders) took it upon themselves to walk among the fans, much to the displeasure of the fans. The LONRS were looking for revenge from their last encounter with the Ego Express (KC Karrington and Steven Kennedy) who was accompanied by their manager Tiffany LeFane. This was a knock down drag out chess match between two of the best.

Sterling took bragging rights on the best hit of the night when he threw Karrington into the corner with so much force it looked to derail the Express from winning the match at that point. Karrington showed that he was all heart and kept fighting. The LONRS stole the win when Sanders went for the pin and used the ropes while Sterling held onto his hands for extra leverage. The score was now one win for the LONRS, one win for the Ego Express.

The second main event was the NWA Kansas Champion #1 Brett Young defending his belt against the young Tyler Cook. Cook was so close last month and with OZZY playing I was sure we were about to have a new champion. Young had other plans and really showed why he was one of the premier wrestlers today. Young never really allowed Cook to get off the ground for longer than a few minutes.

One moment, Cook had pulled the turnbuckle cover off trying to hold onto dear life as Young worked him over. That would come to haunt the challenger because later in the match Young threw the turnbuckle cover at the ref. This blinded him long enough so that Young could throw Cook head first into the uncovered turnbuckle long enough for the champ to have retain the belt. Cook had proved to the Kansas fans that he has no desire to give up the NWA Kansas Championship anytime soon.

The MWR 2008 Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt was in the main event taking on the popular Al Snow. Wyatt had just came off big victories of Davey Richards and Tyler Black and looked to add the man the fans wanted to see to his list of victims. Al Snow came to the ring with his friend “Head”. The crowd chanted “We want head” while Snow talked to his mannequin friend in the corner to start the match. Then before they would lock up Snow ran the ropes and went back to the corner to talk to his “friend” again. This went on for a while and really seemed to get under Wyatt’s skin.

When the action got underway the two exchanged moves until Wyatt was able to deliver a clothesline that took Snow out of the ring. Wyatt threw Snow into the turnbuckle and attempted to use a chair but the ref intervened just in time. Wyatt took it back in the ring and “Wyatt Sucks” chants rang through the building. Wyatt leaned on the Snowman and punished him with powerful strikes. Snow was able to turn the momentum when he tossed Wyatt into the turnbuckle but the ref was their and was knocked out. Al called for the second ref Martin T to come in to make the count, but when he came into the ring it was too late.

Snow went for a strike on Wyatt but Wyatt shoved Martin T in the way to protect himself. With both refs out of the ring and Snow went to check on one of them, Wyatt brought in a chair but the other ref was getting up so he hit himself with the chair hoping the ref would disqualify Snow thinking that he had used the chair. Snow knows every trick in the book and before the ref was up he did the exact same thing causing the first ref to be confused on who the culprit was. The ref was asking the fans who had used the chair, Wyatt protested while Snow recovered to get his “friend” Head and use it as a weapon for the 1,2,3 much to the fans delight.

NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling once again had a stellar showing. 275 fans went home happy and a buzz was in the air for the NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling to return on March 28th in Ottawa Kansas. Do yourself a favor and make your way to Kansas for a fun filled show.

Your Trip to Space Mountain – NWA presents Dynamo Pro Wrestling 11-29-2008

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 20, 2008

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

 

I won’t lie to you, I was excited about going to Pomona Kansas for professional wrestling. How could you not be? The night would include a NWA Kansas Championship match between #1 Brett Young taking on Tyler Cook, Dingo was scheduled to have a rematch with Jeremy Wyatt. A tag team dream match between the LONRS and the Ego Express plus ROH Superstar Davey Richards would be in action as well. Yes, I was excited about all of those stellar matches, but what really excited me was hooking back up with my friends in Kansas before the holidays.

 

Dubray and I got into the Pomona, Kansas, a small town of less than a 1000 that I had never heard of, much less been too. The NWA has advertised a meet and greet with the fans at a restaurant called Buzzards Pizza. I had ran into a wrestling fan in St Louis the week before, Jonathan Jones, who I had told about this night of wrestling. To be honest, I really didn’t believe that he would make it. Lo and behold, Jonathan called me to let me know he was in town, so he caught up with us at Buzzards. While the wrestlers met with the fans, we enjoyed some of the best pizza I had ever tasted. Wrestling fans if you ever hear that a wrestling show is coming to Pomona, you now have two reasons to go.

 The NWA had invited us to come and give away a MWR T-shirt to one of the fans at the show. While my better looking half, Dubray met them at the door Jonathan and I watched as fans kept coming through the door. I was thinking to myself, “is the whole town here?”

 

Before the match started, a 3 bell salute with a moment of silence, was asked by Larry Barber from the crowd, due to a tragedy within the community. A young man age 14, Treavor Wormell, had lost his life while another boy Preston Bunyard was in critical condition after a head on collision with a combine. Everyone at MWR, extends their thoughts and prayers to both families.

 

With the building packed, the announcer introduced the first match, a six way between Domino Rivera, Brandon Espinosa (In a pretty pink and blue outfit), Kraig Kessman, Mike Sydal (Skipping into the ring), Davey Vega and Adam Rich. I turned to Jonathan and said “There’s a lot of talent in the ring right now.” Rivera, who is a stone cold assassin normally, couldn’t resist teasing Sydal and Espinosa that they should be a couple before the match started, which prompted laughter throughout the building.

 

Throughout the match Sydal was able to use his athletic ability to impress the crowd. Espinosa hit a beautiful dropkick on Vega, but Vega would later return the favor when Espy was outside the ring, Vega went to the top rope and his a flying body press onto both Espy and Sydal and at the same time that happened Kessman went to the top rope on the other side and hit a flying ax handle on Rivera. Exciting action from all 6 men ensued during the match. Rivera seemed to have the match won when he hit a killer clothesline but when he went for another move, Kessman hit a snap mare DDT for the win.

 

Aaron Scott and Brandon Marino were up next, the two mirrored each other in looks, power and moves. What one could do the other would match. Aaron was nasty from the get go and threatened to rip off Marino’s arm at one point of the match. Powerful kicks and big moves were abundant in this encounter. Marino made the mistake of going to the top for a high risk move but Aarons was one step ahead and moved out of the way which led to Marino hurting his leg. Aarons smelled a weakness and capitalized on it with a sharpshooter for the victory. I know I saw more wrestling in this seventeen minute match than I have seen on my TV screen the past 2 weeks. Trust me when I say you will hear of these two guys before it is said and done.

 

#1 Brett Young came to the ring to let the fans know that he is the NWA Kansas State Champion, a fact that makes him better than each and everyone of the fans in attendance. Tyler Cooks name echoed all through the building as he entered the ring. The Champion showed little respect for the #1 contender by slapping him in the middle of the ring. Cook returned the favor with a slap of his own. Young went for a cheap shot, but Cook was ready with the block and a punch. Young wisely bailed out of the ring, and my guess was he finally realized for the first time that this match was not going to be a walk in the park.

 

 The ever popular Shorty Biggs was to take on every fans enemy, Pierre Abernathy, who on this night was accompanied by manager Sadie Blaze. Biggs had Abernathy rattled early on with his tomfoolery. Abernathy bailed out of the ring, Biggs went with him and chased him around the ring. Blaze then made his presence known by hiding under the ring with sneak attack. The crowd was not happy that the European scumbag had taken the cheap way and the building rang with USA chants. Shorty would get the advantage only to have Blaze interfere and negate it. Blaze attempted to help one more time, but Shorty took advantage of a miss hit for the 1 2 3 win going into the intermission.

 

At Intermission the wrestlers came out and met with the fans to take pictures and thank them for coming. While they did that, Jonathan went and bought the Jeremy Wyatt and Tyler Cook t-shirts, and I caught up with my friends Logan and Alex. I was able to speak to some of the wonderful members of the Masons. The night of wrestling was also a fundraiser for the Masons. They explained to me in more detail of what their organization is about.  It is amazing what the Masons do to help others in need. 

 

After intermission we were treated to what I’d like to think was a triple main event. The  first match was two of the best tag teams in the Midwest, The LONRS (Mark Sterling and Darrien Sanders) taking on the Ego Express ( Steven Kennedy and KC Karrington) and  led by the always talking Tiffany Lefane.

 

The LONRS were home in Kansas, but the two let the fans know they wanted nothing to do with them. The match went back and forth with Lefane’s presence felt at major moments of the match. This would prove to be true when the LONRS went for a top rope piledriver on Kennedy. Lefane took advantage and distracted Sterling, Karrington meanwhile took out Sanders and pushed him out of the ring to allow Kennedy to roll up. The LONRS were furious and vowed to get revenge on the Express when the NWA returns January 31, in Ottawa Kansas.  The Ego Express and the LONRS had lived up to the expectations of Jonathan who stated that this was his vote for the match of the night.

 

Dingo was scheduled to take on his rival Jeremy Wyatt but due to an injury was unable to make it. He was replaced by Ring of Honor Superstar Davey Richards. As soon as the announcer stated who Wyatt’s opponent was, I knew there was going to be a war. Wyatt normally is able to overwhelm his opponents with his intensity but Richards is one of the few men who can match him and then some. Wyatt and Richards beat each other from one side of the ring to the other. At one point Wyatt threw Richards out of the ring onto a group of fans in the front row with ring rail in tow. Wyatt hit a belly to back suplex for the victory against the ROH Superstar. This was a pure wrestling classic with no gimmicks required.

Davey Richards did not care if Wyatt is the number one ranked wrestler in the Midwest. He delivered brutal strikes throughout the match.

 

 

 

 

 

That last match could have been the main event anywhere else in the country but on this night we had the NWA Kansas Championship Match. Brett Young walked to the ring and seemed to regain his composure from the earlier meeting with the young Tyler Cook.  The place was shouting “Let’s go Tyler” but Young is a master in the squared circled and slowed the pace down so that the fans and Cook were unable to get the quick start. When Cook would get the upper hand, Young wisely took a step back and never let him get in a routine. Young decided that he would just take the easy win by going to the locker room and calling it a night but Cook took it upon himself to bring him back to the ring. The fans were ecstatic when Cook turned it up a notch and proceeded to punish Young outside the ring. At one moment, Cook held Young while a Kansas masked fan delivered a Ric Flair chop.

Playing around with the fans may have been a mistake because when Cook threw back inside the ring. Young struck quickly before Cook could get back in the ring to get the advantage. Every time Cook would strike, Young had an answer.

 

With the referees back turned Young took the pad of the turnbuckle. The time that it took allowed Cook to recover, which led me to believe that we would have a new champion. I was sure that Young’s evil deeds would backfire on him. With Cook going for the pin, Young powered out and threw Cook head first into the uncovered turnbuckle. With the challenger knocked out Young was able to get the victory and retain the NWA Kansas Championship in an exciting match.
