Dynamo Pro at the Ready Room – Brandon Aarons Becomes the Champ – Ricky Cruz, Mike Outlaw and Jake Dirden Say Goodbye

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 11, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer
Photos Brian Kelley

The ring announcer were Chris Roedel, your assistant ring announcer was Luke Roberts, and your referee was Scott Ramsey.

dpwrrdecll-1-of-328

Jackal vs. “The Caramel Bear” C.J. Shine: The fans were NOT fond of Shine, despite the fact that this was supposed to be an opener between fan favorites. Shine outwrestled Jackal in the early minutes of the match, leading to a danceoff that seemed to go in Jackal’s favor (if you asked the average person in the stands). Shine upset Jackal at the 4 Hands Brewery show last month, so this was a rematch from that particular encounter…in Jackal’s defense, he had just been through a tough matchup with Jake Dirden(the week prior) and Shine was fresh for that bout. Jackal rallied and went for the Killswitch #2 (turnbuckle-walk Tomakazi/Unprettier), but Shine blocked the move and threw him off. Jackal charged at Shine and got caught in a small package for the flash pin in 8:22.

dpwrrdecll-5-of-328

“The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher(sporting his new shorter hair) made his way to the ring; he had been M.I.A. since the mask-vs.-hair match with Makaze in mid-September. To say the least, his year didn’t turn out as he had planned…but he vowed to get his payback on both Makaze and The Bite Club(Rocket Mapache & Jackal) and to refocus his career in 2017. No match for Gallagher…perhaps next time.

dpwrrdecll-11-of-328

dpwrrdecll-16-of-328

dpwrrdecll-17-of-328

Tag Team Champion “The Valedictorian” Keon Option(w/ Justin D’Air) vs. Rocket Mapache(w/ Jackal): Speaking of The Bite Club, the other half of the team was in action here. D’Air is still recovering from a recent knee injury. I hope to watch the D-1 Title match from last week in Wood River between Outtkast and Rocket; I heard great things about that matchup. Hopefully this will lead to a Tag Title feud between the teams…that part seems to naturally follow as Rocket & Jackal had several near-misses for the belts but never quite won them. The match could have easily gone either way, but Option took it with an axe kick in 6:33. More Mutual Respect(tm) occurred, but Jackal made it clear that they Wanted Da Belts(tm).

dpwrrdecll-38-of-328

dpwrrdecll-43-of-328

dpwrrdecll-51-of-328

Outtkast vs. Makaze for the D-1 Title: Both guys have impressive championship resumes; both men were GCW Light Heavyweight Champions and Outtkast was GCW and Dynamo Tag Champ with “The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs. Makaze briefly held the NWA Missouri Title when it was the top belt in Dynamo Pro; literally on the show when they transitioned from that belt to the current Dynamo Heavyweight Title, he lost it back to K.C. Karrington. Both are veterans in the area and continue to plug away amidst a ton of younger guys, so they brought out the heavy artillery in this championship bout.

dpwrrdecll-64-of-328

I’ve known Outtkast to take crazy amounts of punishment over the years and this was no exception; Makaze caught him with a Death Valley Driver onto the edge of the ring apron! Makaze tried to follow up with a plancha but the titleholder moved out of the way…then Outtkast went to the top rope for a corkscrew moonsault to the floor! Outtkast hit the floor with a thud that was audible throughout the building…ouch. Understandably it took both men some time to collect themselves, but they made it back into the ring and kept on going. Makaze nearly won with his signature Kyouhen(Sharpshooter) and Outtkast barely made it to the ropes. Makaze delivered a Death Valley Driver off the top rope(!) that left both men down…but out of nowhere, Outtkast connected with the Case Study to retain his title in 16:34! It was a tremendous matchup between two guys who I’ve known for most of their respective careers…yes, more Mutual Respect(tm) took place.

Brandon Espinosa vs. “The Incredible Primal Prodigy” Matt Kenway (Look At Him) for the Missouri Wrestling Revival Missouri Title: Surprisingly, Espinosa was the fan favorite in this matchup…both guys have played different roles in area promotions. One of Espy’s favorite tactics in recent months has been to emulate WWE finishers and sequences, so he tried to start off fast with two spears and a Jackhammer(a la Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series); Kenway escaped the Jackhammer setup and bailed out of the ring.

dpwrrdecll-83-of-328

dpwrrdecll-88-of-328

dpwrrdecll-121-of-328

dpwrrdecll-131-of-328

dpwrrdecll-143-of-328

Targeting the arm has been one of Espinosa’s strategies in recent times, but Kenway attempted to use the same tactic against Espy. Kenway brought a chair into the ring and wedged it between the turnbuckles, but it never quite came into play during the matchup…darn you, Chekhov’s Folding Chair! (Thanks A-Top.) It took several tries, but Espinosa was finally able to lock on the cross-armbreaker…Kenway didn’t surrender, but Espy appeared to severely injury Kenway’s arm and the referee called for a stoppage in 18:40! It looked like Kenway’s elbow had been dislocated and he seemingly popped it back into place on the ring ropes…eep.

 

There would be no Mutual Respect(tm) HERE as Kenway snapped, bashing Espinosa repeatedly with the aforementioned chair(THERE’S our Chekhov’s Gun)…it would be Espy’s old tag team partner turned rival Ricky Cruz who would run off Kenway after the match. (In fact, Espinosa won the MWR Missouri Title from Cruz.) The two didn’t QUITE seem to be on friendly terms, but Cruz and Espy parted ways without incident.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz vs. “The Intelligent Dirdey Monster” Jake Dirden: This was a farewell for both men for different reasons; Ricky is retiring at the end of the year and this was his last Midwest match. (He will face El Mesias, aka Mil Muertes, at Galli Lucha Libre in Chicago for his final bout.) Cruz came to the St. Louis area a few years ago for the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance, then later competed for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling and held their Classic Title. He would go on to compete for Dynamo Pro, holding their Heavyweight and Tag Team Titles(with Espinosa) as well as the MWR Missouri Title. These two have had many battles(eleven, per Ricky) and the feud did a lot to elevate Dirden in the eyes of the fans, propelling him to the Dynamo Pro Heavyweight and Tag Titles(with Jackal). He also appeared in Ring Of Honor’s Top Prospect Tournament in 2015, losing in the first round to eventual winner Donovan Dijak. Dirden is on his way to the NWL as “Jack Foster“, so this was his last match for DPW.

Ricky got streamers for his entrance and asked Dirden for a technical matchup so they could go out on a positive note…but it didn’t take long for the match to devolve into an all-out fight.

dpwrrdecll-164-of-328

dpwrrdecll-170-of-328

dpwrrdecll-176-of-328

dpwrrdecll-184-of-328

dpwrrdecll-189-of-328

Both guys threw their biggest bombs for this final counter and neither would stay down for very long…it took a grand total of four superkicks for Cruz to finally score the decisive victory in 14:58!

dpwrrdecll-219-of-328

dpwrrdecll-206-of-328

Afterwards, Ricky and Jake both said their farewells as the locker room emptied to applaud their efforts!

Mike Outlaw vs. Brandon Aarons for the Heavyweight Title: These guys had a tough act to follow but they brought their A games; they’d crossed paths a few times in the past with Outlaw getting the upper hand in those bouts. They had a strong main-event matchup and the fans seemed to be slightly in favor of Outlaw (despite both men being fan favorites).

dpwrrdecll-233-of-328

dpwrrdecll-237-of-328

dpwrrdecll-238-of-328

dpwrrdecll-243-of-328

dpwrrdecll-247-of-328

Outlaw’s Mafia Kick only got a two-count…then the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) only got a near-fall as well. Outlaw lost his composure (not a common thing for him) and brought a chair into the ring, going so far as to push the referee away when the official tried to stop him. Outlaw swung with the chair, but Aarons dodged and the chair rebounded off the top rope to smack Outlaw in the head. Aarons took advantage of the opportunity with a flurry of offense:
dpwrrdecll-262-of-328

dpwrrdecll-271-of-328

Go 2 Sleep, Hairflip(half-nelson) Suplex, and finally a Shining Wizard…and that earned Aarons the Dynamo Pro Heavyweight Title in 14:00!

dpwrrdecll-281-of-328

Outlaw was distraught over the match outcome and grabbed the title belt away from the ref, but presented it to Aarons and raised his hand. After that, Outlaw dropped his own bombshell: He was leaving Dynamo Pro as well (for NWL)!
Outlaw said his farewells to the promotion and wrestlers who got him started in the business and the roster came out for another round of applause.

Free NWL #FightSTL shirts, stickers, and more for the first fans through the door at St. Louis Anarchy’s awesome show.

-The show started with promoter Pierre Abernathy addressing the fans and acknowledging the fact that it was the final show for St. Louis Anarchy. He brought out National Wrestling League promoter Major Baisden; he got a mixed reaction, but he spoke to the fans about his vision for the NWL and seemed to have them on board.

The Hooligans(Devin & Mason Cutter)(w/ Uncle Leo) d. The Viking War Party(“American Viking” Alexandre Rudolph & “Littlest Viking” Jake Parnell); the match broke down into a bar fight with the four sitting in chairs and punching each other. It finally came down to Devin simply pummeling Parnell to the mat and pinning him (15:53).

Vega barely had time to celebrate his win as several competitors from the Kansas City side of the NWL attacked all three competitors; I saw Logan & Sterling Riegel), Jake & Ryan King, Kiyoshi Shizuka, and even Michael Strider!

High Risk Wrestling Update for this Friday Night in Warsaw, Missouri

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 30, 2016

15036540_1327897840594686_712899780077615537_n

High Risk Wrestling Presents “Final Fight”, our last Event of the year on Friday, December 2nd, at the Warsaw Community Building in Downtown Warsaw, Missouri! The doors open at 7:00PM and The First Bell is at 8:00PM!

At this time, I have some bad news. I was informed that Davey Richards and Angelina Love did not get their Missouri Wrestlers Licenses renewed in time for this Event. Unfortunately, this means that they will not be able to appear this Friday.

I am working hard to find a suitable replacement for both of them.

No matter what, “Miss Natural” Heather Patera will be in the house to meet and greet with the fans and who knows what else she may have in store for us!

I offered to just add Tony Kozina to the Title match with Mike Sydal, since he is the Number 1 Contender in my eyes. Being the competitor that he is, Tony refused to have anything handed to him and insisted on competing in the Number 1 Contenders match, so he can earn his Title shot!

Therefor, the winner of the Number 1 Contenders match between Kozina and Shizuka will now receive their Title shot that very same night!

I will continue to search out more of the finest High Risk Athletes to add to this Event to make sure that it is our best Event, EVER!

HRW Tag Team Championship Match!
BabeWatch ( “Simply Irresistible” Brandon Aarons / Brandon “Espy” Espinosa ) Managed by Garret “Freakin” Williams (c) VS “The Primal Prodigy” Matt Kenway / “The Millennial” Danny Adams

High Risk Wrestling Dec 2nd Warsaw, MO Mike Sydal vs Davey Richards, Angelina Love vs Miss Natural

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 22, 2016

15036540_1327897840594686_712899780077615537_n

High Risk Wrestling Presents “Final Fight”, our last Event of the year on Friday, December 2nd, at the Warsaw Community Building in Downtown Warsaw, Missouri! The doors open at 7:00PM and The First Bell is at 8:00PM!

We are just two weeks away from our next HUGE Event! At this time, I can announce the next two matches!

1. The new HRW Tag Team Champions, BabeWatch will be defending their newly won Championships against former Champ, Matt Kenway and a new partner of his choosing!

HRW Tag Team Championship Match!
BabeWatch ( “Simply Irresistible” Brandon Aarons / Brandon “Espy” Espinosa ) Managed by Garret “Freakin” Williams (c) VS “The Primal Prodigy” Matt Kenway / “The Millennial” Danny Adams

2. After the Wild Main Event at our last Event, where Justin D’Air defeated his former friend, turned Enemy, Mike Outlaw to win The HRW Mayhem Championship, I have decided to make a rule change to The Mayhem Championship as it will now be defended in more than just multiple person matches!

Back in 2005, I, Frank Thurman, ran a Promotion called F.I.S.T. Wrestling in Peoria, Illinois. This Promotion had a Championship called The Specialty Championship. This was a totally new and different Title as it had some specific rules. This Championship could only be defended in some kind of Speciality match, which could be anything from, winner gets 5 minutes with the manager to a 3 way match to a Cage match to a Table match, etc., but there had to be some type of stipulation before the Title could be defended.

The First Athlete to claim The F.I.S.T. Specialty Championship was Now, Wrestling Legend, SharkBoy who defeated Independent Wrestling Legend, Jimmy Jacobs managed by Tank Thurman in a 5 count match, where a 3 count was not good enough, you had to keep your opponent down for a full 5 count!

With this in mind, I have decided to change the Stipulations for The HRW Mayhem Championship!

The HRW Mayhem Title will now have the same stipulations as the Specialty Title! The Mayhem Title can now only be defended in a match with some kind of special stipulations, including multiple person matches!

After watching the last two matches between, Justin and Mike, where they literally left bumps and bruises on each others bodies, I have decided that this conflict between these two Men, needs to end before someone ends up permanently disabled. To that end, I have booked one last match between these two, to hopefully end this once and for all!

HRW Mayhem Championship Match!
Last Man Standing Match!
Justin D’Air (c) VS Mike Outlaw

Also featuring the following:

NWA Missouri Championship match!
“The Freestyle Phenom” Jay Howard (c) VS Paco Gonzalez

Number one Contenders Match!
“Tornado” Tony Kozina VS Kiyoshi Shizuka

HRW High Risk Championship Match!

Justin D’Air d. Mike Outlaw to win the HRW Mayhem title

High Risk Wrestling Presents “Final Fight” on Friday, December 2nd, at the Warsaw Community Building in Downtown Warsaw, Missouri! The doors open at 7:00PM and The First Bell is at 8:00PM!

After reviewing the footage from October 21st in the HRW Championship Match, it’s obvious that Tony Kozina’s foot was on the rope before the 3 count!

Therefore, after having two great matches against the Champion and there yet to be a clear winner, Tony Kozina absolutely deserves another rematch!

However, since I had already signed the Championship match for December 2nd, prior to October 21st, it can’t be then.

After Talking with Tony, he said that he doesn’t want to make excuses and doesn’t want anything handed to him.

Per his request, Mr. Kozina will be in a number one contenders match on December 2nd, so that he can earn his way back into Title contention!

His opponent will be named next week!

I can now officially announce the Championship match for “Final Fight”!

Champion, Mike Sydal will have his toughest challenge to date as he will defend against a former ROH World Champion / former TNA – Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Champion, who is known around the World as one of The Best Technical Wrestlers alive today!

Shake Up at Dynamo Pro Wrestling in Wood River, Illinois Mike Outlaw, Shorty Biggs

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 3, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer
By Brian Kelley

“The Cowboy” Ric Maverick vs. “The Incredible Primal Prodigy” Matt Kenway (Look At Him): This was a rematch from the previous Glen Carbon show where Maverick scored the victory over his rookie opponent. I will stop hammering that lame running gag about Kenway into the ground…eventually.

DPWAAUGLL-88

DPWAAUGLL-96

DPWAAUGLL-100

Despite Kenway usually being the rulebreaker in shows around here, this seemed to be a battle of fan favorites as it played out (though a few people still booed Kenway). Kenway cut off Maverick’s rally with a Union Jack-style cobra clutch neckbreaker, then got the surprise tapout win with an Anaconda Vise in 5:09.

C.J. Shine vs. The Snitch: Sophie Darling was absent from Snitch’s corner, leaving the masked man to silently protest about the abundance of fans attempting to take pictures with their phones. Snitch cheated to win their previous encounter, so payback was the order of the day…however, Snitch hid in the audience during C.J.’s entrance to attack him from behind. Shine is gaining popularity, which is a good sign…it’s just a matter of how well he does against more established opposition.

DPWAAUGLL-121

DPWAAUGLL-131

DPWAAUGLL-140

Shine went to the top rope to finish, but Snitch pushed the referee into the ropes to knock him off balance…causing him to land rather painfully on the top turnbuckle. Snitch capitalized by covering with feet on the ropes for the tainted pin in 9:01…aww. Shine got some post-match retribution with a top-rope missile dropkick(not enough headroom in the venue for a springboard move).

Rocket Mapache vs. Orange Lazarus: O.L. is a new masked character…he seemed oddly familiar but I can’t quite place it. I felt like I’d seen this match at some point in a past life…not sure why that was the case.

DPWAAUGLL-164

DPWAAUGLL-175

DPWAAUGLL-179

At a few points during the match, Lazarus was left motionless on the mat only to do an Undertaker-style “Zombie Sit-Up” as if rising from the dead. This freaked out Dynamo’s resident raccoon, but he managed to rebound and win after a Codebreaker followed by a flying boot in 6:42.

Makaze vs. “The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher: This feud has progressed over the past several months…Sadie Blaze returned to Dynamo and took exception to his former protege’s tactics, especially as it related to the masked competitors. That led to Sadie taking matters into his own hands and bringing his very close personal long-time friend Makaze into the battle. Gallagher won their first outing after a low blow, but he wasn’t quite as sneaky in the rematch and got disqualified for the same nefarious tactic. I’m still getting used to Makaze being FAR more vocal than he had ever been in the past…previously he had remained silent and let managers or tag team partners do his talking.

DPWAAUGLL-201

DPWAAUGLL-218

DPWAAUGLL-215

Makaze even encouraged the fans to chant “Brandon” to antagonize the one who had previously gone by that name. The Wind Of Destruction had pulled his own share of dirty tricks in the past so he knew exactly how to counteract them…the chessgame went in the favor of “age and treachery” in this case. Makaze was able to stun Gallagher with a mulekick to the Universal Weak Point out of the referee’s line of sight, scoring the pinfall in 16:43(!).

After the match, Makaze said that he hoped Gallagher had learned a lesson…he didn’t believe in using such tactics, but this was an exception as he was fighting fire with fire. Gallagher remained stubborn and challenged Makaze to one more match to settle things, but he wanted Makaze’s mask to be on the line. Makaze was fine with those terms…as long as Gallagher put his hair on the line as well. That grudge match has been set for Saturday, September 17th in Glen Carbon…mark your calendars, as they say.

Intermission~! I shouldn’t have settled for ramen noodles for my homebound dinner as I indulged a bit on this night. Your Official Ben Simon Concession Count(tm)(Part One), as he was ring-announcing for Pro Wrestling Resurgence: Bag of barbecue potato chips, one Pepsi, and a Hershey bar.

Tag Team Champion Jon Webb vs. MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa, non-title: Espy had a whirlwind night ahead of him as he was scheduled to wrestle on all three area events (and did so). The MWR Missouri Title was not at stake as the match was on the Illinois side of the river; normally the belt doesn’t even make an appearance in that situation, but Espy wore it to the ring anyway. Webb is set for a big match at World League Wrestling next week as he battles Jayden Fenix in a no-DQ match to determine the first WLW Jr. Heavyweight Champion; he was the fan favorite here despite being in the rulebreaker role with tag partner Jack Gamble at NatsuCon.

DPWAAUGLL-282

DPWAAUGLL-279

DPWAAUGLL-288

DPWAAUGLL-333

DPWAAUGLL-321

DPWAAUGLL-322

They had a really good competitive bout that could have easily gone either way…Webb hit the Sliced Bread #2, but the time limit expired at 15:00 for the draw. Espinosa was notably respectful to his opponent afterwards, saying he would love to do Five More Minutes(tm) but he had a full night ahead of him elsewhere…he’d be cool with a rematch down the line, perhaps even in Missouri so he can put his belt at stake. Cue handshake with no shenanigans.

Outtkast vs. “The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs for the D-1 Title: Outtkast’s challenger was determined by a random draw and turned out to be his longtime tag team partner in The Bumrush Brothers, creating this first-time matchup between the two. The team formed back in the days of Gateway Championship Wrestling and won the GCW Tag Team Titles in November of 2006, defeating the team now known as The Submission Squad (Evan Gelistico(Petrie) and Pierre Abernathy). As you might expect, the two know each other very well and this wasn’t the brawl you would normally expect out of the individual competitors…both are extremely underrated on the technical side and they got to show that in this bout. I really enjoyed this bout as someone who is familiar with their extensive history…they both turned up their aggression but not to the point of outright heelishness against a longtime friend.
DPWAAUGLL-371

DPWAAUGLL-385

DPWAAUGLL-399

DPWAAUGLL-409

DPWAAUGLL-405

Outtkast couldn’t use his power-based moves against Shorty so he had to go to his aerial arsenal, landing his corkscrew senton off the top rope for a close near-fall. However, Outtkast went to the well once too often and missed the move on the second attempt; Shorty capitalized with a Paydirt and then a fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver, picking up the decisive win in 16:05 to capture the D-1 Championship! It was Shorty’s first singles championship since he won the Lethal Wrestling Alliance Heavyweight Title in 2007, something that Shorty made mention of…he said Outtkast could have a rematch anytime he wanted one, so it looks like that’ll be a go for September 17th.

DPWAAUGLL-419

“Dirdey” Jake Dirden vs. Mike Outlaw for the Heavyweight Title: When Outlaw upset Ricky Cruz for the Heavyweight Title in December of 2014, he faced a lot of tough opponents; none was tougher than Dirden, who won the championship under controversial circumstances in May of 2015. In the year-plus since that time, Outlaw had to deal with a lot of obstacles in his quest to regain the championship…all of that finally culminated in this one-on-one bout with no Mark Bland, no Travis Cook, and no Black Hand Warriors to interfere.

DPWAAUGLL-436

Dirden had the advantage when the match turned into a brawl on the floor, throwing Outlaw over several rows of chairs and nearly winning by countout. As the battle continued, the referee was knocked down, leading to a visual pinfall for Dirden after a chokeslam. Dirden brought in a chair, but that backfired as Outlaw dropkicked it back into his face. Outlaw delivered the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) and the referee recovered to count…two. Dirden fired back with a big boot but took out the ref AGAIN by mistake. Outlaw springboarded off the second rope for a flying European uppercut, but Dirden was able to get a hold of the chair and bash Outlaw with it. Dirden covered and a second referee ran in to count…two.

Dirden wedged the chair between the turnbuckles as the second referee assisted the first to the backstage area…but Outlaw reversed Dirden into the chair, then used the chair to his own advantage by beating down Dirden with it.

DPWAAUGLL-464

DPWAAUGLL-457

DPWAAUGLL-475

DPWAAUGLL-476

DPWAAUGLL-494

DPWAAUGLL-496

DPWAAUGLL-522

Outlaw delivered the Mafia Kick as the second referee re-entered the ring and covered…for two. Outlaw wasted no time in keeping up the pressure, dropping Dirden with a second Mafia Kick and then going to the top rope for a second High Noon. Three counts later, we had a NEWWWWW Heavyweight Champion!

DPWAAUGLL-545

Outlaw was ecstatic over finally reclaiming the gold…he said Dirden had ducked him for over a year, but he wouldn’t do the same and offered Dirden a rematch whenever he wanted it. After some hesitation, the two shook hands to seal that deal.
