Evan Gelistico gains momentum at Cinco De Mayo for this Saturdays Title Opportunity vs. Da’Marius Jones

Kevin Lee Davidson, Evan Gelistico and LaMarcus Clinton

MMWA Champion Da’Marius Jones will be in action this Saturday night at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club defending his title against Evan Gelistico. Prior to the huge six man match in April, Gelistico had not won a match at MMWA, but that would change as he teamed up with Kevin Lee Davidson and LaMarcus Clinton to challenge Jones, Gary Jackson and the Survivor Champion “Da Bomb” Brian James. When the smoke cleared, Gelistico sent shock waves throughout the MMWA locker room by landing a jackknife cradle on Jones for the win.

With revenge on his mind, the young champion quickly accepted the challenge of Gelistico, a decision that Jones may regret by the end of the night on May 9th. It has been true that Gelistico has taken some time to find some momentum at MMWA, but history has shown around the country that he is capable of defeating the top talents around the country to win titles in singles and tag team action and now has his eyes set on the MMWA Championship.

That was evident during the Cinco De Mayo celebration as Gelistico and his band of thugs ran rough shot on the MMWA fan favorites. Gelistico & LaMarcus Clinton accompanied Kevin Lee Davidson against MMWA Tag Team champion Andrew “The Wolf” Wilder. Wilder fought with all of his might, but the shenanigans of the duo at ringside were took much for him to overcome as BIG KLD once again picked up a win at MMWA.

In a huge singles matchup Gelistico with Kevin Lee Davidson & LaMarcus Clinton ringside was tested against “The Great One” Gary Jackson in one on one competition. Both Jackson and the fans were furious as Jackson had to deal with interference and distractions throughout the battle. After twenty minutes of chaos in and out of the ring the match was called a draw with Gelistico surviving the dreaded Texas Cloverleaf finisher. The fans screamed for five more minutes as they believed that was all the time their favorite Jackson needed to put Gelistico in his place but it was not meant to be.

Gelistico was not done for the day as he returned to lend a hand to his partner in crime LaMarcus Clinton as they bullied young Austin Blackburn in one of his first matches ever. Blackburn showed off some exciting offensive maneuvers ,yet it would be for naught as Gelistico and KLD stopped any momentum that the kid had against the cocky Clinton.

Heavyweight Champion Da’Marius Jones had his hands full as he teamed up with Barackus against former MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa & A.J. Williams. In an exciting battle that showed why Jones has been successful as the MMWA Champion, he was able to withstand the mind games and assault from one of the best in the country Espinosa early on, giving the big man Barackus a chance to deliver a clawhold flatliner on Espinosa for the 1-2-3 for his team after nearly 15 minutes of wild action.

Jones ended the day with his hand raised and the MMWA title chance around his waist, but in the shadows is one Evan Gelistico looking to make his second win at the promotion be his first MMWA Championship.
Was this his plan all along?

Be there this Saturday

“Elitism Triumphant in Best of 7 Series at South Broadway!”

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 13, 2014

MMWA  Shows

 

 

By A.K. Edwards

It may have been Christmas in July at the South Broadway Athletic Club, but the action inside the ring on Saturday night was far from cold.

In what was perhaps the most important event in SBAC history, Team Elitism took on Team Harris, the group representing respected commissioner Jim Harris, in a Best-of-Seven series that would determine control of the company.

The theme of the night may have conjured up images of a icy winter, but from this writers point of view, tempers were flaring red hot from the opening bell. Whether it was commissioner Harris bickering with the very despicable Sean Orleans ringside during matches, or Brandon “Espy” Espinosa addressing the crowd, trying to convert the masses to The Elitism–you could feel the intensity in the building from match to match.

Orleans and Espinosa, in particular, had plenty of reason to spew their propaganda. If the Elitism won the night, Orleans would take over as commissioner. While he would get the prestigious title and with it the power, Espinosa would undoubtedly benefit as the top dog of team Elitism. Orleans may be rising his way up the latter in MMWA, but if you follow the strings attached to his back you’ll find the real puppet master behind The Elitism movement: Espy

Espinosa and his band of thugs started the night off quick winning three of the nights first seven matches, thus taking a commanding lead in the race for the control.

Newcomer Kevin Lee Davidson cast a shadow over the ring in his South Broadway Athletic Club debut, as he picked up the pin for Team Elitism in a tag match to start the night off. Chase King and Lamarcus Clinton then cheated their way to a cheap victory over Gary Jackson and Zulu, to extend the Elitism’s lead to 2-0. The crowd jeered and boo’d their disapproval of King and Clinton’s devious ways, but it only seemed to make the dangerous tag team that much more focused, and even more anxious to quiet the obviously pro-Harris fans.

In perhaps one of the more memorable matches of the night, and certainly most historic, MMWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Ace Hawkins successfully defended his title against Andrew “The Wolf” Wilder.

The action was intense, to say the least, as both men risked both life and limb to position a ladder in the center of the ring and climb up to reach gold. Wilder was inches away multiple times, and he certainly made Hawkins earn the strap. But in the end it was Hawkins, with the help of a low blow and other dastardly tactics, who found himself alone at the top of the latter, as he reclaimed his Junior Heavyweight Championship Gold.

To be honest, it was tough to determine who was in worse shape following the hellacious match, and that’s not even taking into consideration the state of the ladders–which were wrecked.

At that point, it was 3-0 Elitism, and Jim Harris and his crew were in trouble.

Whatever Harris said in the locker room during intermission certainly fired up the troops though, as Team Harris raced back to tie the series at three with a flurry of exciting wins.

First, Da’Marius Jones and A.J. Williams defended their tag titles against big  and Orleans. Then, it was Moondog Rover who got the best of Mephisto, who was obviously not as comfortable with the concept of a Dog Collar match as fan favorite Moondog was. Despite Mephisto bringing out a rolled up newspaper in an attempt to shame and beat the beast into defeat, it was Moondog who walked away as the TV Champion.

Finally, despite Barackus‘ best attempts to wake up his claw and put Dave Osborne to sleep, Big Dave captured the Survivor Championship in a grueling 2-Out-of-3 falls match that literally shook the building to its very core.

Tied up 3-3, everything rode on the gauntlet match to end the night. The winner of the gauntlet, which featured competitors from each team competing in 1-on-1 action, would determine who walked away from South Broadway with control of the MMWA.

J-Mal Swagg was the first entrant for The Elitism, but he was pinned after a huge leg-drop from Everett Connors of Team Harris off the top rope. Ace Hawkins then appeared in the ring for The Elitism, but he befell the same fate as Swagg, as Connor’s leg drop found him for the 1-2-3 in the center of the ring.

Down two competitors, The Elitisim was obviously desperate as Sean Orleans made his way to the squared circle. 

Rather than fight, though, Orleans–true to his loud-mouth nature–grabbed the mic to berate Connors, who was red-hot at the moment. The crafty Hawkins, who was still sulking at ring-side, saw the opportunity for yet another Elitism cheap-shot and took it, as he bashed Connors in the back of the head with his Junior Heavyweight Championship title.

Orleans then took advantage, despite the disapproval of the crowd, and went in for the easy pin.

The next member to enter the match for Team Harris was Webmaster Stevie K. The fall saw Orleans trying to run away and plead his way out, as Stevie’s power was too much for him. Outside of the ring, Stevie charged in with a high knee but Orleans moved out of the way, causing Stevie’s knee to collide with the ring post. Orleans took the opportunity to roll in the ring and Stevie was counted out.

The Elitism was now tied 2 to 2 with Team Harris.  The Elitism had regained momentum.

Just as the crowd realized the impending doom of the Jim Harris era, though, it erupted upon realizing who had just returned to the ring to fight for the commish.

It was none other than Shaft, who was given a heroes welcome into the ring by the crowd; as he stalked and pushed the cowardly Orleans around before making the wannabe commish tap-out to his ankle lock.

Not a person was in their seat as Shaft stood over Orleans victoriously, but that moment was short-lived and ruined by Espinosa, who surprised Shaft from behind and then drove his head to the mat with a nasty thud that was heard throughout the building.

Perhaps realizing that the tide had turned in his favor, Espinosa took to the mic to preemptively announce the end of the Harris era, as well as predict a win over Harris’ last chance, Brian James.

Despite Espinosa’s strong words, James entered the ring fully backing up Harris, and it looked like he had a shot until a move from Espinosa found James staring at the ceiling with Espy above him ready to strike. Once again though, Espinosa’s confidence, if not hubris, got he best of him as he grabbed the mic from ringside and berated Harris, while pumping up The Elitism, as well as his own ego.

Before the crowd could catch its breath, the rest of the Elitism came running out of the locker room like a plague, and both James and Team Harris found themselves in very got water. Growing more confident by the moment, Espinosa told Harris that his time was up and that he had nobody left to have his back.

At that moment the doors busted open and Team Harris came out to equalize the situation, though. Both groups stared daggers at each other from across the ring as Espinosa and James continued their bout. Espy landed a big punch, the Elitism erupted. James mounted a comeback, and team Harris cheered, firmly behind him.

Perhaps it was the spirit of competition that suddenly filled the room or sadly, perhaps it was just my own naivety. Either way, though, this writer believed, if just for one moment, that the night would end in the ring with a winner that clearly earned his stripes, while the loser could walk away with his head held high.

Ignorance surely is bliss.

Espinosa would tell you it was a coincidence–truth or not–,but somehow James was sent flying into the referee, which sent the official tumbling across the ring, surely knocked out.

Espy, true to his Elistism nature, saw the opportunity to pounce and barked orders for his crew to attack James. Team Harris wouldn’t allow the injustice to go on for long though, as they were eventually able to clear the ring and restore order back to a one-on-one scenario.

What looked to once again be a fair fight quickly disintegrated back into mischief though, as Orleans, possibly realizing his opportunity was slipping away, attacked James from behind, which gave Espinosa all the time he needed to finish both James and Team Harris off with a wicked chair shot. Metal collided with cranium and James went down, unable to kick out of the 3-count.

It was a truly cold-hearted way for Christmas in July to end at the South Broadway Athletic Club.

Because of the stipulations that led to the Best-of-Seven event, commissioner Harris is now contractually required to resign from his position. Control of MMWA now rest solely in the hands of Orleans, Espinosa and Timmy Miller.

One can only fathom what that means for the state of the MMWA, but it certainly can’t be good.

Long Road Back: Espinosa Returns To The Top

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 20, 2013

 photo IMG_1852_zps92cb59d1.jpg

For the second time in his career Brandon Espinosa lays claim to the MMWA Heavyweight Championship.

By Patrick Brandmeyer

It was a long and winding road between title reigns for Brandon Espinosa.

He had held the Junior Heavyweight, Television, and Battle Royal Championships in the MMWA, but the “big belt” is the goal of any wrestler in a promotion. Winning the King Of St. Louis Cable Tournament in October of 2011 paved the way for him to challenge for the Heavyweight Title…and he definitely helped his cause by defeating then-champion Gary Jackson in the finals.

Many people expected him to cash in his opportunity at the earliest possible show…but he bided his time until he was ready. He suffered a disqualification loss to Jackson in December, but was granted a rematch in January 2012 and finally won the belt at that time.

During that time period, Espinosa was branching out in his wrestling career. He had become a consistent competitor on the roster of Ohio Valley Wrestling and also won championships in other Midwest promotions. With his focus divided, one had to wonder if the MMWA Heavyweight Title was foremost on his mind. After successful title defenses against Ace Hawkins and LaMarcus Clinton, he needed help from bodyguard Eric Brewer to hang onto the gold against the former champion Gary Jackson in April. Espinosa lost the title back to Gary in May and disappeared from the St. Louis wrestling scene for most of the calendar year.

While Espinosa traveled all over the Midwest and made his name on the national scene, he felt like there was unfinished business on the home front. When he made his surprise return to the South Broadway Athletic Club in December, he made his intentions clear: He wanted to regain his championship status.

He wasted no time in defeating Max Archer for the Junior Heavyweight Title, but another man had his eye on the Heavyweight Title: Espinosa’s former trainee Dave Osborne. Osborne had won the second annual King Of St. Louis Cable Tournament and wanted the belt for himself.

Espinosa was sidetracked by another name for his past as A.J. Williams returned to the ring after a lengthy absence. The two renewed their rivalry with a thrilling twenty-minute time-limit draw in January, then Espy cost Williams his chance to win the T.V. Title in February against Jimmy D. While this was going on, Osborne captured the Heavyweight belt from Jackson…meaning Espinosa had a new target at the top of the mountain.

Despite his issue with A.J., Espinosa’s primary goal never changed. When Osborne signed an open contract to defend his title at the June show, Espinosa was one of two men(along with Gary Jackson) to step up to the plate. Even after losing the Junior Heavyweight belt to A.J. earlier in the evening, Espy was ready to reclaim South Broadway’s top prize.

The chaotic nature of a triple threat match came into play as Osborne seemed to have the advantage over Jackson with a submission hold. However, Espinosa stunned him with a flying kick off the second rope and scored the pin, winning the Heavyweight Title once again!

 photo IMG_1850_zpsa39d95fb.jpg

You can see the anger in Dave Osborne’s eyes as he recovers from Espinosa’s blow to the back of his head. Can the student become focus enough to overcome the his teacher and new MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa?

Espinosa won’t have much time to rest on his laurels as the challengers will be lining up. Former titleholders Osborne and Jackson both want their shots at the told. Old rivals like Ace Hawkins may have their eyes on the top spot. Will A.J. Williams be satisfied with the Jr. Heavyweight Title or will he want to dethrone Espy once again? We’ll find out in due time…but for now, Brandon Espinosa is the top guy in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance!

12 Wrestlers that will make an impact in Midwest during 2012!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2012

By Brian Kelley

Sure you know about the past MWR Wrestlers of the Years and champions at each promotions but what young stars should you be on the lookout for this coming year. Here we give you 12 for 2012 for you to be on the lookout for.  Some are close to be among the choices for Wrestlers of the year real soon while others are knocking at the door to be  a force in the future.

As far as the wrestlers who didn’t make the list. Use this article as motivation to outshine all twelve of these fine young talents in 2012.

Let the fun begin in the squared circles around the Midwest.

1)      Serenity

Serenity is known for wowing the crowd with her dazzling colors and beautiful smile. Underneath the surface, however, lies the heart and desire of a true professional wrestler. Fear is only a four letter word to this young lady as she isn’t afraid to mix it up with anyone, male or female, inside the squared circle. Anyone who has stood across from her in the ring will soon tell you that Serenity means business and if you don’t believe them, try it. You’ll find out for yourself.

Outlook: How much impact that she will have in 2012 in the MWR coverage area depends on how often she wrestles in the 15 promotions that we cover as promoters in up north have taken notice. Her looks has caught the eyes of promoters and her work rate and desire to be the best has shown moments of greatness at times. She finished the year wrestling at SICW against MsChif in the St Louis area for the first time in years.

Here is the kicker, this talented young wrestler is only twenty years of age and wrestled MsChif at the young age of 18. That’s right, she is only twenty, and has charisma to spare. She will only be getting better and looks to be one of the top stars in wrestling for many years to come. Look for her to make her way in SHIMMER sooner than later.

2)      Christian Rose

Rose works over Danny Cannon- Tim Dunahee

Rose had a very good 2011 but everyone at MWR feels as if the best is yet to come. A current AAPW Tag Team Champion with Matt Cage have been active at IWAU, NMW , SLA and AAPW. Quality promo skills keeps the fans attention while his in ring action keeps him in every match. Rose could easily be a MWR Wrestler of the year down the road as he has been gaining respect from his peers and a threat to his opponents.

3)      Bull Bronson

Photobucket

Bronson may be raw, let me say that again Bull is very raw but very few men in the Midwest  is as big as the HUGE AAPW star. He won a big 5-man scramble match at AAPW’S Main event and was very impressive as he picked up the win on AAPW regular Playboy Paul Rose.

A manager in this stage of his career could do wonders for him in 2012. Some training from Harley Race’s Wrestling Academy could prepare him on how to deal with other powerhouses as Brian Breaker and Jason Jones who both know how to use their strength and leverage to work to blow up a man the size of Bronson.

4)      LaMarcus Clinton

Photobucket

Loved by the fans, LMC will have to limit these mistakes that he made in Hillsdale,MO for the fans if he hopes to make it to the next level...Still Brandon Espinosa is one of the masterminds of fooling even the best and here he played possum, then moved at the last moment. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

He is quite possibly the most popular wrestler at MMWA-SICW other than Gary Jackson. Clinton is high flying and exciting but this is also high risk thus making his win loss record inconsistent. Needs to put on some weight to be a true threat to a main title at this time in his career. Maybe a tag team partner for now would give him time to gain the mass that he needs to be a title contender. Still 2012 looks to be a year with many chances to succeed for Clinton. That is if he can overcome a sophomore slump

5)      American Bulldogs

The American Bulldogs with manager Skyler Pierce.

Maddog McDowell has won tag team titles with multiple partners in many promotions but you can tell that he has a special place in his heart for rookie Jonathan West. McDowell has true power that has allowed him to contend for singles titles and grudge matches with some of the best in the sport. West has been like a sponge, taking in all the info and advice that McDowell will give him. Their feud with Chad Mylans MMA was a highlight for fans at 3XW for almost all of 2011.

Quality matches on the road at PWE against the PWE Champions the Hooligans showcased West at his very best. Still the inexperience of the Bulldogs would cost them during the match as the Hooligans proved once again to the Midwest that they are arguably still the standard for tag teams in the Midwest.

6)      Jaysin Strife

How does one of the very best in the Midwest get on this list?

Honestly, he just hasn’t been able to get going at full speed for some time. He is one of the best wrestlers today that many fans have never heard of. A tour overseas in 2011 limited his coverage as well as working towards making Magnum Pro Wrestling a force in Iowa. Strife has bookings for 3XW and PWE and if the fans are lucky at Metro Pro Wrestling he will become a regular there as well. In fact I am still waiting for my Jaysin Strife vs “Superstar” Steve Fender match. Any promotion that wants a main event player added to their roster should contact Strife soon.

7)      ACH

Many fans feel as if the “The Last Dragon” is a superstar sooner than later. Innovated in his moves fans at St Louis Anarchy have been raving about the young star all last year. In December at St Louis Anarchy, he would rain on the parade of Jeremy Wyatt as he returned to LWA/Anarchy in a losing effort in what many fans stated was a great great match.  Fans at Metro Pro Wrestling be sure to get tickets for the Feb 4th show as Wyatt and ACH will meet once again.. ACH will also be heading to PWE in Mt Pulaski as he will be taking on Jordan McEntyre    during a qualifying match to enter the 2011 PWE Epic 8 tournament that was won in 2010 by the 2011 MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espinosa.

Then on February in Granite City he will return to SLA to take on TJ Perkins. Like Rose, ACH is poised to become a MWR Wrestler of the Year if the cards deal them the proper way in the future.

8)      Tyler Priegel

Many fans smirk at his nickname “the Dodgeball Superstar“, but Tyler Priegel is no one to take lightly. What makes Priegel so dangerous is how methodical he is in the ring. No wasted movement and always going forward. He is a true threat right now to NMW Champion Ryan Phoenix’s title. Like Serenity though, will Priegel make his way to the MWR coverage area enough to make the impact for us to see? We certantly hope so.

9)      Mat Fitchett

Nicknamed “Flippy Sh%T”, Fitchett has been trained by local legend Dingo and former NWA Missouri Champ Davey Vega. Fitchett has been earning rave reviews in Texas with Texas Anarchy and ST Louis Anarchy backing down from no one. Was honored a Chikara spot for the Young Lions cup, in 2011 and was very impressive. Fitchett is another wrestler that MWR Promoters should be on the phone to try to get a spot for him on their card. Exciting and electrifying, he always brings a 100 % and looks to be a star for years to come

10)   Heath Hatton

Heath Hatton had a strong 2012, he was one half of the AAPW tag Team Champions with Curly. He made appearances for Harley Race’s WLW and TNA’S developmental league OVW in Kentucky. Hatton would have to go at it alone when Curly was fired from AAPW thus leaving him alone to defend the titles against Matt Cage and Christian Rose, and though Hatton fought with true heart the mountain was too tall to overcome as arch rival “The Golden Boy” Greg Anthony assisted Cage and Rose to help them became the AAPW Tag Team Champs.

He started 2012 off just right by defeating Anthony convincingly at AAPW’S Main event. Would love to take on AAPW Champ Edmund McGuire but with the two being among the top two fan favorites right now he may have to wait a bit. That may be a blessing because right now he may not be ready for the champ but with further training and matches around the Midwest by the end of 2012, he may be the man at AAPW.

11)   Lucy Mendez

Photobucket

Midwest dream girl can wrestle as good as she can model.

She is The Current WLW Ladies Champion, and yes the ratings soar when she enters the ring for Metro Pro Wrestling whether it is as a valet for Domino Rivera or in action herself. In 2011 she feuded with the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Stacey O’Brien who just barely won the award over “The Latino Princess

So why is she on this list?

It’s simple really.

Mendez just started training late 2008 and has already won two WLW Ladies Championships. With looks that kill and the desire to be the best she has been on the search for the top competition in the Midwest. Mendez has already been in the ring with the likes of O’Brien, Miss Natural, Amy Hennig and MsChif.  We would love nothing more than SHIMMER to give her an opportunity to showcase her skills taught to her by the greatest of all greats Harley Race. She deserves a chance to earn her respect  among here peers by meeting the very best women wrestlers in the world today at Shimmer. Women such as the CHEERLEADER MELISSA, SARA DEL REY and Rachel Summerlyn could bring her to the next level in 2012.

Photobucket

12)   Joey O’Riley

It is easy to add O’Riley to the list many will tell us after he had defeated IWAU Champion Matt Cage in a ladder match this past Saturday in Olney Illinois. True, but it is one thing to win a title it’s another thing to hold onto the belt and with Cage who is still in the mix for another shot, it may be harder to retain that what it was to capture the title.

His youth and focused will be tested early on as he is now the hunted. With that said this is a blessing for young O’Riley so that it can prepare himself on what it is to be a Champion. The pressure of winning a belt is now over.

O’Riley is another wrestler who is still raw in his skills and in 2011 he made appearances for New Midwest Wrestling in tag action. While he is the king of his home base at IWAU it will be interesting to see how he deals with adversity. His next opponent is scheduled to be Cash Bordin, a guy who will do whatever it takes to get the belt but if he is to be among the best O’Riely  is going to have to make quick work of another fellow young star in Bordin.

Ron Powers’ reign of terror continues!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 9, 2011

By Brian Kelley

Ron Powers in 2011 has been big, bad and just plain mean. To start the year he would turn on his best friend Danny Boy Hawkins giving him a beat down that was hard to watch. He would follow that up by taking Danny Boy’s Classic Wrestling Championship title while ending his career.

He was just getting started, after taking out Danny Boy he has set his sights on MMWA-SICW promoter Herb Simmons. When Simmons brought in Cowboy Bob Orton, Ted Dibiase and Dory Funk Jr so that the fans could have a chance to meet some of the all-time greats, Ron Powers in some demented way took offense to that.

In an odd pairing to say the least, Sean Vincent, the cocky and brash Canadian has been one of Powers henchmen in all of his evil deeds. Powers jealousy and rage has not only been targeted towards the legends but also newcomer LaMarcus Clinton who the fans have quickly gotten behind. Powers would challenge the high flying youngster to a match. Clinton was quickly put on the spot against one of the best ever in the Midwest in his very first year. The weight, the experience and brute strength of Powers would be too much for Clinton as Powers would get the win….but after the bell was rung; Powers continued to attack Clinton thus forcing the ref to reverse the decision in favor of the young star Clinton.

Last month in East Carondelet, Power’s ego would be front and center once again when he challenged anyone to an arm wrestling match. A MMWA-SICW security employee came out but stood no chance of beating power. Out came wrestler Pete Madden who gave it his all but quickly fell to the monster Powers when out of the back came young Chris Hargas.

Hargas one of the young studs of MMWA-SICW was fired up but not as angry as the champ seem to be as he looked on the other side of the table knowing that Hargas was in awesome shape. After several moments of stalling Powers and Hargas sat down to decide who the top arm wrestler was. At first it looked like another win for Powers but Hargas fought and never gave up until it looked as if he had Powers beat. Yet before MMWA-SICW Commissioner Keith Smith could call the victoryPowers had snapped.

Brutally attacking Hargas with chair shot after chair shot while Sean Vincent antagonized and assisted the champ. Powers quickly sent a message to Hargas that he was not amused.

Later that night during a CAC Championship match between Ron Powers and Chaz Wesson, Hargas had regrouped and though you could see he was in pain, was fired up coming through the door and after Powers. The locker room had to be emptied to separate the two and regain peace.

That leaves us to this month; Chris Hargas is set up to team up with Chaz Wesson to take on Ron Powers and Sean Vincent.
We caught up with Ron Powers and Sean Vincent moments after Hargas and Powers were separated and they had this to say.

MMWA-SICW returns August 20th in East Carondelt with a co-main event featuring two of the very best in the country when Gary Jackson meets Mark Sterling.

Get your tickets and come out of the heat into the AC at MMWA-SICW in East Carondelet.

LaMarcus Clinton looks to take down the giant –CWC Champion Ron Powers this Saturday

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 12, 2011

When CWC Champion Ron Powers saw the cheers that young LaMarcus Clinton received from the fans, its no wonder he called out the young star for a one on one battle on June 18th in East Carondelet Illinois.

Clinton brings to the ring high flying, high risk and breathtaking moves but can he overcome the awesome power of one of the top wrestlers to ever come out of the Midwest?

We caught up with LMC right after the contract was signed between himself and Ron Powers.

To the great fans of MRW. We all should be thankful to the staff at MWR because they are the only webiste that tells it like it is. They keep their site updated and without them the word of what is taking place in the wrestling business wouldn’t get around. Just as in the case of Ron Powers accusing me of trying to have him taken out. Ron replied to a post on the MWR site and my phone hasn’t stop ringing. Keith Smith and I attended a couple of other shows over the past week or so showing our support and I had fans coming up talking about Powers post. I assured them Powers is a man of little words, but he means what he states. Does his words or threats concern me, you bet they do, will I let him cause me to stop doing business the way I have been doing for well over thirty, you can bet I won’t. I feel the fans of the SICW the MMWA and our new program wrestling explosion deserve the best. Yes Ron is one of the best, but is he the best, opinions may vary on that statement, but
I can’t let that stop me from doing what the fans have come to expect from me. So Ron Powers can threaten me all he wants, or he can talk about how he beat Cowboy Bob Orton, how he beat Dory FUnk Jr, and how if “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase gets in his business next Saturday June 18th, he will have a price to pay to him. Well Ron’s memory of the Orton, and Funk matches differ from what I witnessed. I guess since he is telling the story he can tell it the way he wants. However, my version and memory is different from his and those of you that have known me all these years know I don’t need to lie. If Ron thinks he ran rough shot over Orton and Funk, then when he wakes up from his dream, he just may be nose to nose with the ” Million Dollar Man paying the ultilmate price. Remember Ron, you and I go back many years and I too, like Ted Dibiase knows, Every man has a price, I just wonder what price you are going to pay next Saturday if you get in “The Million Dollar Man’s
bussiness.

MMWA-SICW – Herb Simmons

Ron Powers replies back to Herb Simmons

Herb, I’m looking at what time you posted your comments, 3;43am. Can you just not sleep, or is the nightmare of me being your SICW Champion waking you at night? For someone to write this at that hour, I guess we know the answer to that. You talk about the Orton and Funk matches, but you fail to mention they were tag matches. Not adding to the fact that both of your teams had to cheat to win, and pay your refs off for the quick three count. You can put me and Vincent in all the tag matches you want. Your guys might win a battle or two, but we will win the war. The funny thing is, I don’t lose one on one. You bring in these big names, trying to teach me a lesson. The only one getting schooled, big guy, is YOU! Didn’t you read my last post? I let you see, what I want you to see. As far as this Saturday, I’m going to beat LMC so bad, its gonna look like Rodney King got off easy. And Ted, this isn’t the 80’s. If You even look at me funny, your gonna need that million dollar belt, to pawn for medical bills.

Sincerely yours, The Champ
Ron Powers
