NWL STL Signs Homegrown Wrestling Star Dez Wellston to Multiyear Deal

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 15, 2016

Kansas City, Mo.December 14, 2016

NWL STL has signed homegrown wrestling superstar Mike Outlaw, who will honor his humble St. Louis-area upbringing by competing in the League under the name Dez Wellston.

Signing a multiyear contract with NWL STL to wrestle in front of his family is the culmination of a dream for this tenacious Midwest grappler, who grew up in Wellston, one of the most economically depressed areas in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

“Every time I’m introduced in the ring as ‘Dez Wellston,’ I’m always going to remember where I came from and how hard I had to fight to get here,” he says. “A lot of people haven’t even heard of my hometown and its struggles. But when I become a champion in NWL STL, I’m going to put Wellston on the map. This isn’t just my dream—I’m fighting for an entire community.”

Travis Bowden, the League’s VP of marketing, praised NWL STL for signing Wellston, who has built a reputation as a fierce competitor on the local indie scene over the last few years.

“Wellston is one of the most exciting performers in the Midwest, and his best days are ahead of him in NWL STL,” says Bowden, who oversaw the contract signing during a recent press conference at NWL Headquarters in downtown Kansas City. “It’s a great day for the NWL when such a promising local star like Wellston signs with the League, as we continue to build a close-knit wrestling community in St. Louis and the surrounding area. On a personal level, I couldn’t be happier for Dez and his family.”

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

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.

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!

Ricky Cruz Reflects on his Career in the Midwest- See Him One Last Time on Saturday

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 23, 2016

0000

When Ricky Cruz told me recently that he was calling it a career for some reason I just did not compute that it would actually happen. Maybe I was in denial. Time passed and to be honest I had forgotten all about it till I was having breakfast at Denny’s with my friends Ben Simon, Patrick Brandmeyer and Gary Weiss and it was one of the main topics this past Friday night.

To say that Ricky Cruz was influential in the Midwest since his debut in 2011 would be an understatement. One of the top stars in his country of Puerto Rico, fans quickly fell in love with not only the wrestling skills that Cruz possessed but the rare charisma that only a few are blessed with. In fact other than Brandon Espinosa and Jeremy Wyatt  there most likely is no other wrestler that I photographed or wrote their name on our site more throughout his time in the Midwest, than “The King of Chaos”, Ricky Cruz.

There is no doubt that his feuds and matches with the likes of Ron Powers, Jeremy Wyatt, Adam Pearce,  and Jake Dirden will be remembered for years to come. More than once I have seen a crowd that was dead for one reason or another come alive as Cruz was able to establish a connection with them and get them to their feet.

Cuz always took the time to help other young stars in the area along the way with advice in and out of the ring. Though I have mentioned it more than once already it can’t be stated enough the connection that Ricky Cruz had with his fans, young and old. As a photographer he made my job FUN and easy when it was time to get that awesome photo of a wrestler with his fans, before, during and after the matches. If I only had a dollar each time a fan asked for me to take their photo with him through the years I could take December off.

He would go on to star for almost every respectable company in the MWR Coverage area, winning titles and being named the 2014 MWR Wrestler of the Year. We were also honored to have him be a part of the first series of the MWR Trading card set at number #78.

When Ben Simon came up with the idea of having a MWR Missouri Title, Ricky Cruz became the first ever champion when he defeated Jake Dirden. I am forever grateful that he took pride in carrying the title that had the MWR name throughout the state of Missouri. We had so much fun through his reign working with several top promotions and wrestlers along the way.

On a personal level, the future Mrs. Brian Kelley, (Dubray) and I will always consider Ricky a dear friend.

This Saturday I hope that you join me as we say farewell to Ricky Cruz as he takes on his arch rival Jake Dirden one last time at Dynamo Pro Wrestling at the Ready Room on Saturday night.

Dynamo Pro 11/26/16

I leave you with Ricky Cruz’s final goodbye through social media, but it will be so much sweeter for you to say goodbye to him in person.

By the way Ricky if you decide to renege on this announcement afterwards I am all for it.

Cruz can’t lose.

Thank you!!

Since May 2011 I’ve had the opportunity to be here in the mid-west doing what I love, WRESTLING. It’s been great to have the chance to entertain the fans and work with so many talented people.

I wanted to take a minute before this 2 last matches and thank the people that have help me and encourage me to continue doing what I love when I thought I would never set foot in a ring ever again. When I came to St. Louis I was injured and I was never to wrestle again or at least that’s what I was told by my Dr. but that wasn’t the case.

As I was getting better I had the chance to meet Keith Smith and Tony Costa, two gentleman that has been in wrestling forever. They gave me a place to train and later on my first opportunity to come back to the ring. For that I will forever be grateful.

Also thanks to Herb Simmons because he gave me a chance to do great things at SICW. Even when we don’t see eye to eye in a couple of things this days I still appreciate the opportunity and the faith he had in me and my work. I hope one day we can seat at Steak and Shake like we use to and talk wrestling.

I have to thank all the veterans that helped in any way, Keith, Chester, Gary, Pete, for all the advice and their comments. Thank you for helping me be better at this craft.

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

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 22, 2016

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

From the office’s of PWCS

As we teased last night, the league has decided that in 2017 it is time to introduce a bench mark of singles excellence. This singles champion will serve as a MVP of sorts. It’s holder will be recognized as the best singles wrestler in PWCS. He will be the most valuable wrestler in the league, and assuredly receive secure contracts and bonuses from his team.

The championship will honor not only the past St. Louis Anarchy champions, but all the great champions of the St. Louis area indies of the past. The areas rich history will be honored by the Gateway Heritage Champion.

After his efforts to defeat Gary Jay and Mat Fitchett we recognize Davey Vega as the first Gateway Heritage Champion. We are honored to carry on this rich history.

PWCS Mega Ticket 2016
The 2015 Mega-Ticket combined two companies together for a huge celebration of independent wrestling. 2016, PWCS keeps the celebration alive by combining its two biggest and wildest events into one night of action!

The 2016 Mega-Ticket event will see 6 “Wild Card Stage” matches. These six matches will determine which two teams will top the standings at the end of the night. Instead of waiting until January for those two teams to square off though, they will immediately determine the 2016 PWCS Champion that night in the Main Event!

Add in Arik Cannon, Darin Corbin, and Pierre Abernathy’s last singles match versus Gary Jay and you have a night that can only be called the 2016 PWCS Mega-Ticket!
