2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star – Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 20, 2017

Bio courtesy of Patrick Brandmeyer

The names of Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett are well-known to Midwest wrestling fans, but the national wrestling scene has only recently begun to discover the talents of these skilled competitors.

Both men started their careers with Dynamo Pro Wrestling before branching out to the Lethal Wrestling Alliance, which would later become St. Louis Anarchy. Vega was first known as a tag team competitor and teamed with Johnny Vinyl to feud with The Ego Express(Steven Kennedy & K.C. Karrington), leading to Kennedy & Karrington becoming the first LWA Tag Team Champions when they defeated Vega and substitute partner Dingo. After that, Vega focused on singles competition…after holding the NWA Missouri Title in Dynamo Pro, he went on to capture the LWA Heavyweight Title from Gary Jay in December of 2009. Vega held the title for most of 2010 before dropping it to Evan Gelistico; this occured shortly before the transition to St. Louis Anarchy and Vega spent most of that promotion’s existence chasing the title.

Davey Vega explodes with a clothesline on ROH Star Jonathan Gresham.

In that time, Vega competed against some of the best wrestlers in the world and scored victories over many of them. That list included such names as Davey Richards, Kyle O’Reilly, Johnny Gargano, Arik Cannon, A.C.H., Michael Elgin, Roderick Strong, Chris Hero, Jonathan Gresham, D.J. Z, T.J. Perkins, Chip Day, and Martin Stone. In his final opportunity at the gold at St. Louis Anarchy’s last show, Vega finally capitalized by winning a triple threat match with champion Fitchett and Gary Jay for the title! Vega will continue to carry the championship in Pro Wrestling Championship Series as the “Gateway Heritage Title“.

As for Fitchett, his career took a similar path and he squared off with many of the same competitors as his often-time tag partner Vega. In fact, Fitchett and Vega were Tag Team Champions in both the Chicago-based All-American Wrestling and the Kansas City-based Metro Pro Wrestling!

TJ Perkins found WWE gold in 2016, but before that he and Fitchett put on a wrestling clinic at St. Louis Anarchy.

The “Dirty Rook” took his lumps in his early LWA and SLA career, enduring hard-hitting battles with the likes of Arik Cannon, Akira Tozawa, Alex Shelley, and his trainer Dingo. Fitchett was frustrated after several near-misses in title matches against Darin Corbin and Gary Jay, leading to him taking a sabbatical from SLA competition; however, it turned out that he was hiding under the mask of “Dangerous Deveroux” as he competed for SLA and PWCS. Fitchett had an uphill battle against Gary Jay as the champion rode a wave of momentum, holding the title for over two years with title defenses against some of the toughest competition in the country. Winning a thirty-man Anarchy Rumble in late 2015 finally propelled him back into title contention…and in February of 2016, Fitchett finally ended Gary’s monumental title reign to reach the top of the mountain!

Fitchett didn’t shy away from challenges as he defended his title against Evan Gelistico, T.J. Perkins, Jake Dirden, and Paco Gonzalez…but on STL Anarchy’s final night, he lost the title to Vega.

It took several years for both men to gain attention in the national independent wrestling scene, but their exposure in AAW and Beyond Wrestling has turned the heads of many onlookers. Now forming the “Blood Brothers” tag team in the National Wrasslin’ League under the names Davey Gibson and Matthew Grundy, the two look to add more tag team gold to their already impressive resumes! These two men have been considered the Midwest’s best-kept secrets, but that secret is finally getting out!

Look for an exclusive MWR Future Star artwork honoring Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett for their achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

If you would like to sponsor the MWR Future Star Plaques for Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett then please contact MWR at flairwhoooooo@yahoo.com. The cost is 50.00 each or $100.00 for both (two plaques) and you will receive a past MWR Yearbook, a Tyler Black (Seth Rollins rookie card) and a mention on the MWR Website.

2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star – Kevin Lee Davidson / Todd Letterman

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2017

The Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star Award has always been one of my favorite awards to give a wrestler. In the past, we tried to honor wrestlers that were just starting out within their first few years that we believed had the talent as well as have shown the desire to go the extra mile on the roads, training with veterans and doing everything that they possibly could to succeed.

This award was one that was personally chosen by myself, and I have been very proud of all the great talents that we have chosen.

This year I decided to change the philosophy of the award to not only talents that are just starting out. The reason is that wrestling has evolved within the past few years where stars that have entertained us on the Independents for years have had the opportunity to become household names at the WWE such as Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens.

So I asked myself, Brian, with so many young wrestlers in the area often traveling in and out of the area, they often are in the mention of top wrestlers, but because of coming in and out of it how can I honor them for their efforts? So with that thought I imagine the MWR Future Star Award to be a representation of who I would send today to NXT if the WWE asked me and my reputation was on the line. Please note that former MWR Wrestlers of the Year winners will not be up for this award

This year we will have two announcements, one today and one tomorrow. Both as important as the other.

Kevin Lee Davidson is a wrestler that meets all the criteria that the past winners exhibited. I love his size, and his raw talents. He has shown that he is smart enough to reach out to the top trainers in the area to improve himself as he has been under the tutelage of former MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espinosa, Former ROH World Champion Michael Elgin, and through camps with the likes of eight time NWA World Champion Harley Race. He has already wrestled in another country and been seen on Ring of Honor TV.

Today, he is a signed contracted wrestler with NWL that feature trainers such as former Harley Race’s right hand man, Derek Stone, and Michael Strider, as well as the wrestling minds of Chris Gough, Major Baisden, Matt Jackson and Travis Scott Bowden the foundation is as strong to succeed as it could be anywhere in the independents.

Brian Kelley – Owner and Editor Missouri Wrestling Revival

0A mere two and a half years into his wrestling career, Kevin Lee Davidson(aka Todd Letterman) has made a huge impact on the Midwest wrestling scene. Debuting in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance in the summer of 2014, “K.L.D.” made an immediate impact with his sheer size and power. He held the Television, Survivor, and Heavyweight Titles in his time with the promotion, but his journey was just beginning as he appeared for most of the major promotions in the St. Louis area; his experience includes matches with Dynamo Pro Wrestling, World League Wrestling, St. Louis Anarchy, and Wrestling Invades America(where he held their Heavyweight Title).

K.L.D.’s big step in the wrestling world was seeking the mentorship of Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling star “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin; this led to several appearances for ROH as well as matches in Canada and Europe. Most recently, his talents caught the eye of National Wrasslin’ League President Major Baisden…K.L.D. was one of the first to be signed to an exclusive NWL contract!

Now known as “The All-American” Todd Letterman, the big man is one of the top names in the new NWL promotion…will he be the first NWL St. Louis Champion? Don’t bet against him!

Look for an exclusive MWR Future of the Year Kevin Lee Davidson/ Todd Leterman artwork honoring her for his achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Tag Team of the Year – Alpha Class (Danny Adams & Paco Gonzalez)

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 18, 2017

Trained by former Ring of Honor World Champion Michael Elgin, Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez, came together to form the tag team Alpha Class and quietly picked up huge wins in 2016. In January, the duo picked up a big win against former Dynamo Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions Shawn Santel and Mauler McDarby otherwise known as the Professionals. They would challenge the DPW Champions High Level Enterprise, Jon Webb and Jack Gamble coming up just a little short, but that would not deter them in the least.

While making their way to Proving Ground Pro they picked up a huge win by defeating the much larger and powerful team of Blake Belakis and Nate Redwing, while backing that up with a win against Craig Mitchell & Kenny Sutra.

In August at Pro Wrestling Resurgence Alpha Class picked up a an epic win against two of the most successful tag teams in the Midwest in a triple threat match with The Submission Squad(Evan Gelistico & Pierre Abernathy) and 2.0 (A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones).

Proving that that win was not a fluke Alpha Class upset the Besties in the World, Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett. Less than a month later they not only defeated The Carnivore Club (Blake Belakis & Nate Redwing) to win the Proving Ground Pro Tag Titles, but successfully defeated them in a rematch for the title.

Back in St. Louis for Dynamo Pro Wrestling they would lose a hard fought title match against Straps Down University (Keon Option & Justin D’Air) before returning back to Proving Ground Pro to retain the titles against the Brother Reed & Micky Muscles. In the month of November they would retain their PGP Tag titles against the 3-time MWR Tag Team of the Year recipients Devin and Mason Cutter, the Hooligans.

Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez proved that with great training, hard work and dedication they have a bright future and start the year off as Proving Ground Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions but now they also lay claim as the 2016 MWR Tag Team of the Year.

The Ringside Edition December 2016 – December 2016 – By Brian Thompson

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 27, 2016

nwl

Sometimes no matter how long you have been doing something, you always find your way back to your initial beginnings. My personal pro wrestling journey started around 1998 or 1999, creating my own wrestling website (anyone remember Angelfire URLs?) and covering independent wrestling in the southeast Missouri part of the country. Think of it as a poor man’s version of Missouri Wrestling Revival, which has obviously taken things to a totally different level. Long story short, I reached out to Brian Kelley about returning to my pro wrestling columnist days and those humble beginnings nearly two decades later. Wow. Just typing two decades later makes me realize I am not getting any younger!

For the debut of this column, I want to broach a subject that is on the minds of most people involved in the wrestling community in the Midwest – the National Wrasslin League (NWL). Regardless of what anyone might think, they are creating a buzz and a buzz is what you want when trying to establish a new venture.

I think Michael Elgin penned a great viewpoint on Twitter recently about NWL. I encourage you to seek that out if you haven’t already seen it. Now onto my thoughts.

First, I think management of the organization needs to be commended. Promoting pro wrestling is a huge risk at any level you try it. Trust me. This is coming from experience from being involved in different ventures since I first began my career in 2000 as a ring announcer for Gateway Championship Wrestling in St. Louis. Almost 17 years later, I feel I have learned a lot – as much from failures as from successes. When a person takes his or her own money and puts in on the line, whether you believe in the concept or possibilities, the person at least deserves some respect.

Contracts are being offered to talent. They are getting the chance to develop new gimmicks or characters. I have no direct idea of what these contracts entail, but I know many of the athletes and competitors who will be a part of the NWL venture on both sides – St. Louis and Kansas City. I hope to see the organization succeed if for no other reason than to support the dreams and goals of these talents.

Will the regional concept work? I’ve often told people that if I had significant finances to make a “real run” that a regional concept is the way I would go. I’d hope to build up a company that could get a stronghold in whatever part of the country it existed in. Think regional concept with a national footprint. With all the streaming media and online options today, a company can truly put its product out beyond its touring borders in ways never possible before. And as far as actual TV, I’d try to work a deal with maybe a Fox Sports affiliate. I saw Pro Wrestling Ohio with a show on a regional sports network there called Sports Time Ohio several years back. With my Dish Network package, I even got their show. I always thought that was a very good marketing strategy.

I think in trying to make a big splash, the regional footprint is a smart way to go. Time will only tell if this idea, concept and venture works. I hope it does for several reasons. First and foremost is the previously mentioned talents that will be earning a more regular income from wrestling. That is a goal for most of us in the wrestling business in one way or another.

Second, the more successful this is there is the strong possibility of a trickledown effect. For the talents who will be able to work other shows, they would become more valuable for themselves in terms of talent fees as well as more marketable to the promoters who use them. A win-win for everyone.

Will this be easy? Not at all. But guess what? No business is “easy.” If they were we’d all own our own business. It takes time. It takes investment. It takes patience.

As far as management, I think the ones who I understand are involved with NWL bring a mixture of skillsets to the table. Chris Gough obviously has been a part of the biggest wrestling/sports entertainment company in the world and has seen how they operate. He’s also had success with his own independent promotion in the Kansas City Metro. I believe Pierre Abernathy is involved in the St. Louis arm of things. He’s had experience running shows in that metro which only helps the cause. And I’m actually excited to see what Scott Bowden brings to the table. I was a fan of his work during the Memphis days with the United States Wrestling Association (USWA). Being a part of the last surviving territory system can only have helped his knowledge of how to promote and support a wrestling venture. He was on live television for years and saw how that worked. And not live to tape, we can edit later, I mean LIVE as in WMC TV-5 in Memphis with no re-takes.

As we enter 2017, I saw good luck to NWL and good luck to all independent promotions around the area. I hope for a most prosperous year for everyone.

MWR Super fan Jackson Cline’s Top Ten Favorite Wrestlers

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 21, 2016

It was a great honor that my friend Jason Cline messaged me the other night to tell me that his son Jackson was reading the 2015 MWR Yearbook before he went to bed. What a honor, that he has enjoyed the book so much.

Jackson did have one concern, in the 2014 yearbook I had listed my top ten favorite wrestlers of all-time and he could not believe that I had not listed the very talented and highly entertaining Daniel Bryan.

In the 2015, I did have two very talented wrestlers Billy McNeil and Jordynne Grace list their favorite wrestlers in a great edition to the book. I mentioned to Jackson’s dad Jason that I would love to have Jackson’s personal top ten to add to the site.

Tonight I was thrilled to receive that list and am very happy to share them with you.

Brian I told Jackson about your offer to post his top ten list, when I got home today here’s what he had for me. Presenting the “official” top ten wrestlers and/or teams in his own words with mine in parentheses:

1)AJ Styles – “He’s awesome in the ring, and my dad always plays his theme songs in the car” (true on both accounts)

2)Michael Elgin – “He was my first favorite wrestler” (I started getting back into wrestling right when Elgin was moving up the card in ROH and Jack immediately latched on to him.

jk

We’ve met him multiple times and he’s always been great to us.

3)Dalton Castle – “He is so unique in the ring” (Jackson loves the antics of Dalton’s boys, but he’s right about his ring style as well)

jk3

4)Red Dragon – “They are awesome singles wrestlers and when they tag they’ll kick your butt” (Can’t argue with that logic lol)

jk4

5)Davey Vega – “He’s great in the ring and a good guy” (Agreed 100% on both, Davey’s been nothing but great to us and he’s a very good wrestler.)

6)Mat Fitchett – “I always liked him but he moved up a lot when he beat Gary Jay” (The thing I love most about watching wrestling with Jack is getting to remember when I was his age and how I loved the good guys and hated the bad guys. When Fitchett beat Gary Jay he was so excited that it made a great match even better for me personally)

7)The Viking War Party – “Jake and Alex are hardcore” (Jackson LOVES to watch VWP fight The Hooligans probably more than any other matches, I struggle to keep up with him as he’s running around trying to see wherever they’re at while brawling outside the ring.)

8)The Hooligans – “I love it when they fight outside the ring” (See above)

9)Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson – “Nobody can deny The Bullet Club” (I watch a lot of New Japan, which means Jackson does as well. Now that they’ve made it to WWE Jackson wants to watch Raw and Smackdown.)

jk2

10)The Young Bucks – “I like their style and I like superkick parties” (what kid wouldn’t like The Young Bucks?)

Lifetime Achievement Awards Presented, New Champions Crowned by Patrick Brandmeyer

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 26, 2016

 photo 28_zpsf3iywc6o.jpg

History was set to be made at the Stratford Inn in Fenton, Missouri as Dynamo Pro Wrestling introduced a new championship…but history was made in other ways as well.

The show began with a presentation by Missouri Wrestling Revival as co-promoters “Evil” Jim Yount & Crystal Yount received the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2015. Ben Simon represented MWR as Brian Kelley took pictures at ringside; on top of that, Brian Stull was a special guest at the show as he had known Jim & Crystal since their days with Midwest Renegade Wrestling and Gateway Championship Wrestling. “Stully” had been a big proponent of independent wrestling in the Midwest through “The Stranglehold” radio show; he was there to join in the presentation of the award and also to ring-announce for the crowning of the first Dynamo Pro Wrestling D-1 Champion.

 photo 29_zpsgkzwpbuj.jpg

Jim & Crystal have been a part of the local wrestling scene for close to two decades and have played a big part in influencing many of the wrestlers that have competed in this area. They thanked the wrestlers and fans for their support, as well as former associate Sadie Blaze who was in attendance for the event.

High Level Enterprise had been on a roll as Tag Team Champions, but Jack Gamble & Jon Webb faced a tough test in the form of Alpha Class. Danny Adams & Paco Gonzalez had trained together under former Ring Of Honor Heavyweight Champion Michael Elgin and had formed an effective tag team combination, presenting a stiff challenge to the titleholders.

 photo 26 2_zpsug0fo9zi.jpg

 photo 0_zps9hplmsok.jpg

 photo 27_zpsxcajeqci.jpg

After a hard-fought battle, Gamble got the pin on Paco after Webb delivered a Spanish Fly off the top turnbuckle!

Billy McNeil has been resistant to the influence of his new manager C.J. McManus (as well as C.J.’s newest recruit Jayson Khaos), but he has indirectly benefited from their involvement in his matches. This was a big factor in his battle with Brandon Aarons, leaving the fans seriously conflicted about their support of the long-time St. Louis favorite. In particular, C.J. criticized McNeil’s continued wearing of his unicorn mask. Aarons delivered an impressive electric chair German suplex but McManus distracted the referee so his man wouldn’t be counted down.
 photo 25 2_zps1qwgrlpe.jpg

McNeil confronted his manager, leading to Khaos delivering an unseen cheapshot on Aarons…Billy was seemingly unaware of the involvement, but small-packaged Aarons for the quick pin. After the match, McNeil found out about what happened and apologized to Aarons, leading to a handshake between the two competitors.

 photo 24_zpseqjieoyl.jpg

(P.S. I am contractually obligated to note that Aarons’ hair was on point as usual.)

“The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher was intent on making a statement, not only to the fans but to his former associate Sadie Blaze. He had his opportunity in a match with Rocket Mapache, bringing an aggressive attitude that didn’t sit well with Sadie. Gallagher wasn’t focused on winning the match but on unmasking his adversary…while Rocket fought him off for a time, Gallagher finally removed the hood and mercilessly assaulted his foe.
 photo 21 2_zpsoq5h7jar.jpg

 photo 22_zps5m7daefy.jpg

Rocket abandoned self-defense to keep his face covered, forcing the referee to stop the match and award the bout to Gallagher. Gallagher flaunted his “trophy” after the bell, particularly rubbing it in the face of Sadie Blaze as he walked past his seat.

“Young & Dangerous” Evan Morris had defeated Jayson Khaos to qualify for the D-1 Title tournament, so Khaos was on the hunt for payback with manager C.J. McManus and stablemate Billy McNeil in his corner. However, McNeil was still at odds with his allies due to their actions earlier in the evening…he refused to take any cheapshots at Morris despite plenty of encouragement and opportunity to do so.
 photo 23 2_zpslnkbturp.jpg

Morris escaped an Unprettier attempt and delivered a TKO onto the knee, scoring his second win in a row over Khaos; McManus attempted to jump in the ring to break up the pin attempt, but Billy pulled him back to the floor.

“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs had defeated Lucy Mendez‘s newest protege Kiyoshi Shizuka at a recent event, but the masked man was looking to even the score due to Shorty’s continued interest in Lucy.
 photo 20_zpszitdr8by.jpg

 photo 19_zpsjl88ocyj.jpg

 

The former Tag Team Champion was on the verge of a victory, but Lucy threw herself between the combatants to shield her man from the finishing shot. That allowed Shizuka to poke Shorty in the eye and DDT him for the cheap win…to add insult to injury, Shizuka held a dazed Shorty for a slap to the face from Lucy.

Dynamo crowned its first D-1 Champion as Outtkast, “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga(w/ Lucy Mendez), and Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors locked up in a triple threat matchup. Brian Stull did the ring announcing for the occasion as all three men were looking for their first singles gold in Dynamo Pro Wrestling. Outtkast and Fenix had been Dynamo Tag Champs, but Aliaga had never held a championship in Dynamo despite holding gold elsewhere. Outtkast was looking for his first singles title since his reign as GCW Light Heavyweight Champion in 2002.

 photo 15 2_zps8prisapk.jpg

 photo 13 2_zpspt4qu5ra.jpg

 photo 16 2_zpsvqixmo15.jpg

Aliaga and Fenix formed a temporary alliance to wear down Outtkast, but that broke down as only one man could walk away with the belt. All three men had some close calls, but Aliaga was taken out of the picture long enough for Outtkast to finish off Fenix with the Case Study. Outtkast was presented the D-1 Title belt by Brian Stull and his tag team partner Shorty Biggs congratulated him on his milestone victory!

In a true David-vs.-Goliath battle, “The Yoga Monster” Mike Sydal took on the powerhouse newcomer Kevin Lee Davidson.
 photo 10 2_zpsyjcgilfc.jpg

K.L.D. has been making waves in the Midwest and across the country as he has been training with Michael Elgin as well.
 photo 12 2_zpspp7cagzh.jpg

However, agility and experience won the day as Sydal turned the tide with some well-placed kicks. In the end, the Yogasault sealed the deal as Sydal picked up the three-count.

“Miss Natural” Heather Patera hadn’t been seen in Dynamo Pro in a while, but she was in the unusual position of being the fan favorite in a match against Lucy Mendez.

The two are no strangers to each other as they’ve battled all over the Midwest. In this case, Kiyoshi Shizuka made the difference as he pushed Miss Natural off the top rope behind the referee’s back; that allowed Lucy to capitalize with a jumping DDT to get the duke.

Shorty Biggs ran off the masked man afterwards, but the damage had been done.

The Heavyweight Title situation was in a state of turmoil. Defending champion Ricky Cruz and former champion Jake Dirden had been embroiled in a war in recent months, but Brandon Espinosa had earned the number-one contender’s spot in January. Espy had defeated former titleholder Mike Outlaw to ascend to that ranking, but Outlaw scored a pinfall over Dirden in an impromptu tag match later in the evening…setting the stage for a four-corner match for the championship.

Dirden loudly voiced his dissatisfaction with the match stipulation, saying that the title should be decided in one-on-one matchups and refusing to participate in the contest.

He stormed out the side door of the venue, leaving the remaining three competitors to battle it out. Espinosa was on the defensive against two fan favorites, but managed to catch the champion in his cross-armbreaker finisher.

Outlaw broke up the hold with the High Noon elbowdrop off the top rope, leaving all three men down. The King Of Chaos attempted to go to the top turnbuckle himself, but Espy took advantage of the no-DQ environment by knocking Cruz to the floor with a chair.

Espinosa delivered a frog splash on Outlaw, but Dirden chose that moment to re-enter the fray and break up Espy’s pin attempt!

Dirden threw Espy to the floor and attempted to pin Outlaw, but Outlaw kicked out at two. That only seemed to infuriate the “Intelligent Monster” as he pulled Outlaw to his feet, then dropped him back to the mat with a monstrous chokeslam! That was finally enough to put Outlaw down for the count…making Jake Dirden the three-time Dynamo Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion with Michael Magnuson and Jayden Fenix celebrating by his side!
