Metro Pro Wrestling Jeremy Wyatt vs Kyle O’Reilly April 13th plus MPW Show 113

First time EVER – Jeremy Wyatt vs. Kyle O’Reilly April 13, 2013

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 19, 2013

 photo 020412_zps8806bae3.jpg

Jeremy Wyatt has been one of the top wrestlers in the world for some time now. Wyatt is in his second Metro Pro Wrestling title reign after defeating his arch rival.“The Worlds Fittest Wrestler” Mark Sterling on December 8th in a best of 2 out of 3 matches.

Since that time he has embarked on the Jeremy Wyatt vs. the World tour in 2013.

First up was the exciting and ultra-talented TJ Perkins who has impressed fans around the world  at New Japan, TNA and Ring of Honor. In a classic match between two ring technicians, Wyatt was able to capture a hard fought win against one of pro wrestling’s brightest stars.

Wyatt would then meet one of the few men that is able to match head games with “The Belt Collector”; and that would be the former 5-time NWA Worlds Champion and the 2012 MWR Wrestler of the Yea, Adam Pearce.
In a rematch of their classic 2012 battle for the NWA World Title, just a little over a year from the day, the Metro faithful would break an attendance records as the two warriors battled it out for the MPW title. In one of his biggest wins in his career, Wyatt was able to defeat the greatest NWA World Champion of this generation.

No rest for the wicked, Wyatt is once again hunted by one of another wrestling’s top young star in the world; none other than Ring of Honor Superstar Kyle O’Reilly.

O’Reilly is a protégé of the former Ring of Honor Champion of the World Davey Richards. Hard hitting, very methodical, O’Reilly is able to use his unbelievable training regimen, to dominate with the ground game after destroying his opponents with his vicious strikes.

The Metro Pro Wrestling title could very well be in the hands of the man that Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked at #102 in 2012 when the lights go out on April 13th.

Can O’Reilly become only the 8TH man to hold onto the Metro Pro Wrestling? Or will Wyatt add another victim to resume during the Wyatt vs. The World tour in 2013.

Join MWR when history is made as Jeremy Wyatt meets Kyle O’Reilly for the very first time in Kansas City, Kansas at the Turner Rec Center on April 13th !!

Let us take a look at a classic matchup from Ring of Honor as Davey Richards meets his mentor in a match that is sure to be a taste of what is to come in less than a month!!

Metro Pro Wrestling returns to Turner Rec Center in Kansas City, KS, on Saturday, April 13, for our next television taping for Metro Sports! Doors open at 6 p.m., and bell time is 7 p.m.

Match already announced:

– Metro Pro Title Match: Jeremy Wyatt will defend his MPW Title in his Indy World Tour

By Brian Kelley

Missouri Wrestling Revival was excited to announce at the first of 2012, that the newest promotion in the MWR coverage area was none other than St Louis Anarchy. SLA is a branch of Texas promotion Texas Anarchy Pro Wrestling and is filled with some of the top stars in the country today.

As the time grew closer to the date of the show, it was easy to tell that this was going to be a don’t miss show with stars from ROH. St. Louis and Texas all coming together for an exciting night of action, proving that SLA in 2012 was going to be an exciting promotion to keep an eye on.

Though we have not being do complete show recaps of late( with the exception of the DVD review of AAPW’S MAIN EVENT due to the fact that they sent us one to review) I wanted to show SLA the respect of at least one complete photo recaps of their first show. I personally love doing them but with the time I have in my life right now I can’t do them for every show. Still for fans in and out of St Louis this recap is for you. A great show from top to bottom with not only one but two MOY possibilities in my honest opinion between ACH and TJ Perkins and the tag team match between ROH World Champion Davey Richards and Kyle O’Riley against Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett that you will sure want to buy on DVD when it comes out.

Thanks to our friend Patrick Brandmeyer for detailed results for a spectacular show, I am happy to share with you some of the awesome action via photos from an epic night of St Louis Anarchy’s “Gateway to DANARCHY

Walsh didn’t know why Gelistico had done what he did, but he made a pin cover…for two. Walsh would go on to win with the cobra clutch slam to retain his title…but it looks like his issue with Gelistico isn’t over yet.

It is time for the NWA to step up and bring the best in the tournament for the NWA JR World Championship tournament?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 31, 2011

By Brian Kelley

The NWA was once the King of wrestling. In my heart the three letters combined will always have a place in my heart as well as many fans around the world.

Many believe that the NWA is long and gone, but I have faith that the King will rise from the ashes to become a true player in the very near future. If it is to happen it will have to start in 2011.

When two champions the NWA World Champion the Sheik was stripped of his belt and the NWA Junior World Champion Craig Classic walked away from the title, it put the world on notice. How would the mighty NWA respond to the actions of Sheik and Classic?

With the rumblings of a tournament for the NWA Junior title I have looked closely at the players that can bring honor and prestige back the NWA as they prepare for their NWA Junior Tournament on Oct 7th.

Four  men stand out among the rest.

Photobucket

Photo Credit Brian Kelley

First off we have Tony Kozina , a former two time NWA Junior Champion, Kozina has been very vocal in his desire to regain the NWA Junior Championship. While Kozina has trained none other than ROH World Champion Davey Richards as well as rising superstar Kyle O’Reilly he still is a main event player.

Recently, Kozina has been seen wrestling for Ring Of Honor and top notch promotions around the country . A master of controlling a match from start to finish, no wrestler is more focused to become the NWA Junior Champion.

One of the most traveled stars in the sport today Kozina has felt that Classic was his for the taking and had a match set up in October with Classic prior to the Champ surrendering the title.

Photobucket

Kahagas vs Joe Bravo, Dominican Wrestling Entertainment

Also in the running would be none other than the Tokyo Monster Kahagas. The feared veteran of the sport has traveled worldwide while taking on a who’s who in wrestling today. He quickly became a draw in the Midwest in a very short time while many await his return.

This year on June 18, 2011, in Sherman, TX, Kahagas participated in the first ever GWT Indy World Championship and earned runner up for the title. Legendary Judges that were present throughout the Bracket on Sunday and the Championship match were Harley Race, Mando Guerrero, Tugboat Taylor, Stan Hansen Iceman King Parsons, Col. Buck Robley, WCW’s Awesome Kong, Chris Youngblood, Head Ref. James Beard and Japan’s NOAH, GM Ryu Nakada. According to the Judges, it could have gone either way; both wrestlers have tremendous Talent and work hard. Going into Sunday’s 32-Man Bracket, the Tokyo Monster Kahagas swept the first three days of the round robin tournament had a Bye in the 1st Round with the highest overall score. In the final match of the tournament Kahagas would lose by one point to 16 year Heavyweight veteran Tim Storm.

Kahagas has been in the ring with former NWA World Champions Dusty Rhodes, Blue Demon JR, Tony Kozina and many other top stars in the world.  Several of today and yesterday stars have contacted MWR to let us know that they feel as if Kahagas can restore honor back to the NWA.

Jason Jones has left many men Frustrated with his wrestling skills in matches in 2011. *Photo Credit Bill Smith*

Then one of the hottest rising stars in the Midwest, Jason Jones. Jason Jones in 2011 won the first ever two day tournament for the Harley Race Invitational earlier this summer cementing him as one of the top men in the sport. With victories over Jeff Strong, Mark Sterling and Ryan Drago. Jones would receive his trophy from two legends that night in Race himself and WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Pipper. Jones is currently one of the top contenders for Harley Race’s World League Wrestling title and with training from both Harley, Pro Wrestling Noah and WWE scouts at the WLW/Pro Wrestling Noah Camp in October in Eldon Missouri there is no doubt that he is about to get that much more dangerous.

Photobucket

Jeremy Wyatt can match holds with any men in the sport today. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Last, but not least we have the NWA Central States Champion Jeremy Wyatt . The NWA in its heyday had the NWA Central States title known as a stepping stone for the NWA World Title. Jeremy Wyatt this year alone captured the NWA Central States and Missouri title in 2011 along with the 3XW and HVW championship.Wyatt joined an elite class of the only people to hold the NWA Central states and Missouri Championship at the same time along with Harley Race and Cowboy Bob Orton Jr.

3-time MWR matche of the year winner, Wyatt has won so many titles that he is named the “Belt Collector”  and a classic 60 min Iron Man match this year with Mark Sterling is why many fans in the Midwest feel as if he is the number one wrestler not signed by WWE/TNA or ROH today.

What a crime it has been to have a man that has headlined the most main events around the Midwest for the past four years not even mentioned in either the NWA Junior and World title.

It is time for the NWA to bring the best to showcase their skills in the NWA Tournament in 2011.

Kyle O’Reilly calls out NWA Midwest X Champ Oliver Cain.

As midwest wrestling continues to expand and flourish under the NWA banner, it only makes sense that the top talent in the professional wrestling world begin showing up.

Photobucket

NWA Midwest
Mt. Vernon, IL.

One of the hottest rising stars, Kyle O’Reilly made a statement today, after defeating “Tornado” Tony Kozina, when he challenged NWA Midwest X Champion, Oliver Cain, for his championship.

“Doesn’t matter when or where, said O’Reilly. Your a champion? Then put up or shut up, anytime, anyplace.”

Within hours of the challenge the match was set.

“Streator has been a thriving little market for NWA wrestling”, said NWA Supreme promoter, David Cavazos. “In February, we brought in NWA World Junior Champion, Craig Classic and the turnout was wonderful. What better way to return to Streator, than to have a challenger the likes of Kyle O’Reilly set for Oliver Cain?”

In addition to this encounter, the headlining match for May 28th will be for the NWA Midwest heavyweight title, as Sadist defends against Derek St.Holmes. And, a three way match will be held to determine a number one contender to the NWA Midwest X Championship. It will be Shank Barzini vs. Jason Lyte vs “Tornado” Tony Kozina. Interesting, considering what happened in the O’Reilly/Kozina bout.

Should O’Reilly dethrone Cain, and Kozina win the contenders match, we’re set for O’Reilly/Kozina II for the championship. That’s just one scenario, but it’s anyone’s ballgame! The above listed matchup’s and many more coming to Streator, IL. May 28th 2011 for Park Fest.

Good luck to Midwest stars Mike Sydal and Kyle O’Reilly at Chikara’s Young Lions Cup.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 24, 2010

Missouri Wrestling Revival would like to send out the support to two wrestlers who have made waves in the Midwest recently in the 2010 Chikara’s annual Young Lions Cup tournament on August 28th.

Mike Sydal is one of the most loved wrestlers in the Midwest with fans clamoring to know what he is up to and when he will be back in the area. In 2009 he won the PWI Rookie of the Year, with that said it is not a given that this young up and comer can get by the lesser known but just as dangerous Keita Yano in round number one . Yano will look to ground the high flying Sydal and move forward in this prestigies tournament.

The other Midwest star is Vancouver Canadian star Kyle O’Reilly has had extensive runs in the Midwest including nearly taking home the NWA Missouri Championship in May from Davey Vega at NWA Dynamo. The two battled in and out of the building in a war between two of the best young talents today. O’Reilly will meet Adam Cole in round number one, Cole is a man who O’Reilly has been in battle with before but the stakes will be much higher as each of them looked to make a name for themselves.

Prior Chikara’s Young Lions Cup tournament winners include Midwest stars Arik Cannon and Chuck Taylor we send out the best wishes to these two young warriors as they look to bring the cup to the Midwest.

From the office of Chikara
