Dubi meets the PWE Fans June 2010

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 9, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Thank you for taking the time to join me with a new Dubi meets the fans, where today we are at Pro Wrestling Epic for the very first edition of Dubi meets the Fans at PWE.

This night promised to be special because one of MWR’S rising stars the PWE US Champion “Irresistible Brandon Aarrons was set to face the current Ring of Honor World Champion Tyler Black. Aarons has won the hearts of fans in St Louis but it would be interesting to see how this match up would go. In the near future Brian will have a photo recap of this historic match up as well as the rest of night of wrestling action from Mt Pulaski Illinois.

This was also the night were we debuted the Tyler Black MWR Trading Card, and we presented Tyler Black with a MWR Top Draw courtesy of MWR Artist Dartallian Allen.

To start the night Brian introduced me to the Nose Bleed Seats MOAV5706 and Chris Lee who had brought his son to the show and I caught up with the famous Crime Fighter. To find out more info on our friends at the NBS checked out their site here.

Meanwhile I was on the hunt to find some people for this edition of Dubi meets the fans. I was thrilled to meet an energetic group of fans from Lincoln Illinois with one stating that they try to go to all the local shows. We talked about wrestling and they said nationally they like John Cena but on this night they were excited to meet Tyler Black. After Tyler got done visiting with some fans he was kind enough to join us for a picture. Danny, Richard, Greg, Mike , Jerry and Scott all had the chance to get their picture taken with the hottest wrestler today Tyler Black.

The next group of fans that I met was uncertain who they wanted to chose for the night but stated that they would let me know at Intermission. Krotch had open the night in exciting fashion with a win against MR. Late Nite’s protégé Graves. Karma would come back to bite Graves as the week prior he, “The Perfect Weapon” Morbid and MR Late Nite turned on Cabal leaving him brutally laying in the ring after they lost to Mephisto and Justin Wade. This night Mr. Late Nite would show his true colors when he turned on Graves before the match ended. The ace in the whole for this weasel of a manager was he had just paid for the services of one of the Midwest most powerful man in the Midwest “The Future” Donovan Ruddick.

With the exciting win Krotch once again was chosen for the Dubi meets the fans picture, making him one of the most requested wrestlers in the Midwest for this feature, wheather it is at 3XW, MECW or PWE the fans can not get enough Krotch…. Wait Did I just say that? Melissa, Charles Mariah, Kristin and Tommy all posed with Krotch.

Ruddick would make an impact later in the night when he turned on his friend The Mississippi Madman. The Madman had a cast on his hand due to an injury and was not expecting the assault by Ruddick. The Madman promised to get revenge when he heals up.

Ruddick and his manager Mr. Late Nite would not be done when Ruddick challenged Jimmy Karryt for the HWC Championship. Brian is a big fan of this rising star and had asked if he would do the honors of wearing a MWR Shirt to the ring prior to his match. In a hysterical moment of the night Brian was attempting to take a picture of Karryt coming to the ring and was backing up where he nearly went head over heels on a bunch of chairs that got the laugh of the night from the crowd. That’s my boyfriend. Karryt threw the MWR Shirt to young Paula Merrell and though he lost the title and was bruised and battered he still took the time to pose with his fan.

Unfortunately Ruddick and Mr. Late Nite would not be denied as they would go home with the HWC Title in my personal opinion of the match of the night. I look forward to a rematch between these two in the near future no pun intended.

I had to decide on whom my pick for the Dubi meets the Fans photo and who would be better than the PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons prior to the biggest match in his career.

I won’t lie the trip was long but we had a great time while having a lot of fun. The wrestling was very good and PWE announced that evening that they would be returning to Lincoln Illinois Balloon Festival on August 28th. We went last year and had a great time watching wrestling outside while the Balloon liftoff was going on. If you missed it check out Brian’s Photo Recap of that show here and mark your calendar for this date.

Springfield Illinois we will be coming to your town when MWR comes to New Midwest Wrestling for the very first time on July 10th. Look for Dubi meets the NMW fans!!
I look forward to seeing you there.

Till next time Love Dubz

Dubi meets the IHW Fans June 2010

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 29, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

We are back with another edition of Dubi Meets the fans, last time we were in Des Moines Iowa for 3XW and for this one we had to travel through Missouri to Illinois to make our way to Dupo for Independent Hardcore Wrestling.

IHW has been red hot in 2010 with some large crowds that have been very energetic, in fact the size of the crowd have got so large that they are going to need to find a new building to hold all the fans. This night would be no different as IHW was filled with a great mix of talent including a non-title rematch between IHW Champion Brandon Aarons taking on the self proclaim greatest wrestler ever from Illinois, the current IHW Illinois Champion Eric Allen, the ultra talented Bailey Mannix met Tony Kozina while Mr. Late Nite caused chaos and Evan Money, Steven Kennedy, Billy McNeil and Sean Vincent went toe to toe to become the 2ND Annual IHW ST Louis Invitational Tournament Champion that Aarons had won last year. This year the hated Sean Vincent would take home the bragging rights.

Everywhere we go Brian and I have a ton of friends and with so many promotions in St Louis it is only magnified which makes going to the shows a ton of fun. Brian had spoken to our friends Jonathan Jones and his wife Lena on the way to the show to find out if they were going to make it to the show but one of their children was in the Hospital so he was unsure of what time they could make it.

Prior to the show started I ran into the people from Iconsofwrestling who have the wonderful Gods of Wrestling painting with so many old and new stars filling this must see painting. This was the first time that I had seen this and I have to say it was a sight to see. I went in to get Brian to let him know that the artist Icon, Ed Schultz and Dotty Mattis were there. While we sat outside talking fans where coming by to check out this masterpiece. Brian mentioned to them that they should contact both Metro Pro and Larry Barber about showing off the poster in Kansas. He also stated that this summer’s big Wrestling Hall of Fame ceremonies in Iowa was about to happen and would be a golden opportunity to share the art with many people that love Wrestling. They are really hard at work promoting this one of a kind piece and was on their way to do double duty that night as they were off to meet our good friend Herb Simmons at MMWA-SICW. If you would like to check out the Gods of Thunder click here.

Before I knew it the doors had open and the crowd filled the building waiting for some great wrestling action. Brian was busy proudly showing off the new MWR Trading card that Mephisto had done which went over well with everyone. The next day he was to announce that Tyler Black would be the 10th card but was keeping it a secret till he posted it on the site. I know if Brian won the lottery he would just make a card for everyone but though expense of making one is reasonable making several can become expensive , so for the time being he is unable to make as many as he would like. If you would are a wrestler, Manager/Valet or referee and would like to have an awesome collectable for you to sell or have I highly recommend that you contact Brian on the details. Already in the set are Santana G, Mark Sterling, MsChif Kahagas, and Mike Sydal. Likewise if you are a business or wrestling school and would like to sponsor a wrestler with your business logo on the card feel free to ask how. Personally I don’t think that it will be complete until there is a Derek Stone and Dubi card.

It seems as if everyone was excited to be a part of Dubi meets the fans so it is getting easier to find people to want to be a part of it. This night wrestling Superfan Erica Jones was joined with her sister Michelle brought birthday boy Joshua Jackson who had just turned 7th and little man Ellies. A great way to celebrate your birthday is at a wrestling show. They were all big fans of Mephisto who happily took the time to take a picture.

Young Braden Pulcher was at IHW for the first time so I let him watch the matches to decide which IHW Star he would take his picture with. Not surprisingly he chose the charismatic “The Kid” Evan Money to have his picture with. Money was successful in the first round Jordan McEntyre in an exciting match and during the intermission posed with his new fan.

Next up was one of the most  hardcore  wrestling fans in the area Andrew Adams otherwise known as the “Firefighter”. Andrew choose Brandon Aarons at first but when he saw that I took Mickie Knuckles as my picture he changed his mind and we were more than happy to have give him his wish with the hardcore beauty.

Dupo is Mephisto territory and he would be picked once again. This time Kolby Stephens wanted his picture taken with him as well. Mephisto fans would were happy to see him team up with Justin Wade to defeat MR Late Nites men Brandon Graves and Cable. The loss would lead to MR Late Nite firing Cabal while Graves and The Perfect Weapon Morbid attacking their former partner.

The Wrestler of the night who would throw a MWR Shirt to one lucky fan turned out to be young Adam Rich. Rich was returning to the ring after a short absence and would have his hands full with the hated Canadian in the first round of the STL Tournament. Young Dennis Corderant would be the lucky fan that caught the MWR Shirt. Later in the night Rich took the time to have his picture taken with the young fan.

As I mentioned before I always try to choose a picture with a star as well though sometimes I get so busy I do not get it done. I have always been impressed with Mickie Knuckles and she happily posed with me prior to her match with Mia Martinez. Mickie is one tough girl.

As far as Jonathan, him and Lena would not make it till the main event match with Brandon Aarrons and Eric Allen match. They were so impressed that they purchased tickets for IHW’S return to Dupo on July 24th.

MWR Fans thank you for taking the time to read this article. In the near future look for Dubi meets the Fans at Pro Wrestling Epic from Mt Pulaski Illinois and if all goes as planned we will make our long waited debut at New Midwest Wrestling in Springfield Illinois for their show Boiling Point. Keep an eye out for my special interview with Blake Steel as he goes after the NMW Title currently held by Jonathan Magnus.

Till next time fans, support your local wrestling. I hope to see you at a show real soon.

Love Dubz

NBWA February 22 2009 Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 9, 2009

nbwa-2

 By Rich Dalton

 

Thank you as always to all of our great NBWA fans that came out to

Support your 2009 Nose Bleed Seats Award winning Promotion of the Year.

 

We dive head first into the action on this cold Sunday afternoon in Danville with a tag team bout between the team of “The Lord of the Ring” Issan Hadeev and his partner for the afternoon, “The Unpredictable” Cyclone. Their opponents for the match were Cecil Cerveza and “Dangerous” Drew Thomas. It was a very closely contested match up, and in the end the team of Issan Hadeev and Cyclone were victorious after Issan hit the “Jihad” neck breaker on Cecil while Drew and Cyclone were fighting on the outside of the ring.

 

Winners by pinfall: Issan Hadeev and Cyclone

 

Following the match, still not satisfied that Issan had gotten what he deserved from the last NBWA event when Drew lost a “First Blood Match” to Issan, Drew issued a challenge to Issan for an “Unlucky 13 Staple Gun Match” to be held on Saturday March 7th at the NBWA’s huge 4th anniversary event. On a side note, Issan is still yet to be defeated in the “Unlucky 13 Staple Gun Match” I believe the record is now 2-0 with wins over Jaxson Pride, and Cecil Cerveza.

 

The second match of the afternoon was the second ever NBWA women’s match and was between “Serenity” (formerly Brandi Harris) and NBWA newcomer Alicia. Serenity improved her NBWA record to 2 and 0 with a win in this match, but it’s worth noting that she had her feet on the second rope for added leverage when she pinned Alicia.

 

Winner by pinfall: Serenity

 

After the match “The Fabulous” Jason V. entered the ring and pointed out that he likes to surround himself with excellence, noting that Serenity is undefeated in the NBWA, and “Aaron and Jeff” are the NBWA Tag Team Champions. Jason V. also said that he would allow “Bloody” Harker Dirge to be in the NBWA Invitational Battle Royal….IF he could defeat a special hand picked opponent later on in the show.

 

Next up for the afternoon, NBWA Lead Council, Jonathan Castle made his way to the ring to inform NBWA Mid-West Television Champion, Eric Ruffington that since he saw it fir to boycott the “Pick Your Poison” event on Feb.7th, Mr. Ruffington would not only have to compete in the karaoke competition that the fans choose, he was also going to compete in a dance competition, AND a wrestling match against Cheapshot Mcgrot. First up was going to be the singing competition, but before we can get started Mr. Castle introduces us to the 3 hand picked judges for the competition. The first judge is Marvin, the owner of the NBWA gym, and the maker of the worlds best nachos! The second judge is NBWA ring announcer The Lovely Miss Amanda. The third judge making his long awaited, surprise return to the NBWA….former NBWA Heavyweight Champion…”The Strangler” Diego Corleone!

 

In the first phase, Cheapshot McGrot sang the song “I believe I Can Fly” made popular by R. Kelley, and received good reviews from both Marvin, and Miss Amanda, but Diego made a comment something to the likes of the song sounding similar to the sound artificially inseminating sheep. I apologize for not knowing the song Eric Ruffington performed, but I do remember he didn’t impress Marvin or Miss Amanda, but got a stellar review from Diego.

 

The second phase was the dance phase of the competition, and Cheapshot McGrot did the “Soldja Boy” and again received good reviews from Marvin, and Amanda, but of course Diego had something negative to say, something to the effect of reminding him of a fat stripper, who needed to have a bag pulled over her head. Then it was Ruffington’s turn to dance and to start off, he said he was going to need a little help from a couple friends, then Aaron Matthews and Jeff Harris came to the ring to help him with the dance made popular by the Saturday Night Live cast, Chris Kattan, Will Farrell, and Jim Carey. Marvin and Amanda didn’t care too much for the dancing, but Diego gave it favorable reviews.

 

So now onto the wrestling match between Mr. Ruffington and Cheapshot. Ruffinton was in control for much of the match, and almost ended the match with a European Sleeper hold, but Cheapshot was able to hang on. Cheapshot eventually took the upper hand in the match and was going to the top rope for his signature diving headbutt when Diego, who was still sitting at ringside jumped up from his judge’s seat and pushed Cheapshot from the top rope, disqualifying Ruffington from the match. Keep in mind though, a title does not change hands on a DQ.

 

Winner by disqualification: Cheapshot McGrot

 

After the match was over Aaron and Jeff came to the ring and assisted Ruffington and Diego in the onslaught on Cheapshot. Luckily for Cheapshot help was on the way in the from of Heritage Wrestling Coalition Champion, “Bloody” Harker Dirge, who’s appearance alone cleared the ring.

 

As Ruffington, Matthews, and Harris all exited the arena, Diego got the mic and announced that he wasn’t just here for judging this competition, he was here to face off against BHD as Jason V.’s hand picked opponent, and what better time to begin that match than NOW!

 

So the match between “Bloody” Harker Dirge and Diego Corleone begins, with Harker’s spot in the 2nd Annual NBWA Invitational Battle Royal on the line.  This was a great match by the 2 former champions and the match came to a conclusion when referee Carley Rae was inadvertently knocked out, and Diego, ever the opportunist went to the corner of the ring and retrieved BHD’s chain and attempted to use it, but Harker was able to make him miss, and then used the chain himself and delivered a shot to Diego’s throat, and went for the cover.  By this time the referee was coming to, rolled over, and administered the 3 count.

 

Winner by pinfall: “Bloody” Harker Dirge

 

After a brief intermission, we dive head first back into the action with a match between Nicky”The Weasel” Mankotti and “The Catalyst” Corey Carter, who is making his first appearance back in the NBWA since the NBWA event on May, 24th 2008 when he participated in a “Gauntlet Match” against Harker Dirge.  This time though Mr. Carter fared much better in the NBWA ring, gaining a pinfall over “Weasel” following a reverse back breaker.

 

Winner by Pinfall: “The Catalyst” Corey Carter

 

 

Next up for the afternoon was a NBWA Tag Team Championship match between the champions, “Aaron Matthews and Jeff Harris, and their opponents were D’Andre King, and Vic “The Pitbull” Santelli, otherwise known as “Encore”.  This was a great back and fourth match between the champs, and the #1 contenders.  Jeff and Aaron had D’Andre isolated for much of the beginning of the match, but when Pitbull entered the match he was taking care of business.  In the end though neither team was awarded with a victory.  As D’Andre, Jeff and Aaron were fighting outside the ring, Pitbull climbed to the top rope and dove onto the 3 men outside, and this eventually led to a double count out.

 

No Winners: double count out

 

The next match has been the center of much chatter for the last couple of days since the show.  It was between the team of Eric Ruffington and his partner for the afternoon was Morbid, who was accompanied to the ring by Alicia and their opponents were Joey Grunge and Dan The Man.  Grunge and Dan the man had much of the match going in their favor, but towards the end of the bout Eric Ruffington left his partner Morbid to face both Grunge and Dan all alone, and that is when things fell apart.  Morbid hit the mat, and had been pulled out of the ring by his Alicia.  Referee Chad Tally who had been sitting at ringside noticed things didn’t look quite right and ran to check on Morbid, apparently Morbid told Tally he couldn’t feel his arms, and Tally motioned that he needed medical assistance for Morbid.  Then the announcement was made asking all the fans in attendance to please go outside while Morbid was being tended to.  While the fans were outside it became know that there was nothing wrong with Morbid, and that he had faked an injury because he in fact was an untrained wrestler, that didn’t know how to handle the situation inside the ring, so he tried taking the easy way out of the match and faked the injury.  Just minutes after being asked to leave ringside the fans, not knowing what was going, on were allowed back into the arena, and the show was allowed to continue.

 

The seventh match of the afternoon was between the 2008 Alberta J. Murray Memorial Champion, DaCobra, and his opponent, one half of the tag team “Babewatch”, “Thee” Brandon Espinosa.  This was a fast paced action paced match between two of Illinois finest athletes.  After a hard fought battle DaCobra was victorious following a “Final Intention” (reverse back breaker)

 

Winner by pinfall: DaCobra

 

 

Finally, we have come to the main event of the evening, the NBWA Heavyweight Champion “The Fabulous” Jason V., who was accompanied by Serenity, putting his title on the line against wrestling legend, Tracy Smothers.  It was a slow and methodical beginning to the match, as Jason V. tried to size up his much larger and stronger opponent.  To Jason V.’s credit though he was able to go toe to toe with the ring legend, using a number of wrestling holds to wear down Smothers. In the end though, it wasn’t any wrestling holds, or maneuvers that won the match for Jason V.  It was the help, yet again of the crescent wrench that we have seen used for the last 2 events.  This time, while the referee was distracted by Serenity, Jeff Harris slipped into the ring and delivered a shot to Smother’s head with the wrench.  When referee Carley Rae turned around, all she saw was Jason V. covering Smother’s and she counted 1…2…3!

 

Winner by pinfall: “Fabulous” Jason V.

 

After the match HWC Champion, “Bloody” Harker Dirge came to the ring to aid the fallen legend, but Smother’s who quite literally…never saw what hit him….was confused with the situation, you see when Smothers came to, he saw BHD holding a wrench in his hand and had thought it was Harker who had dealt the blow to him.  After some convincing from the crowd, Tracy seemed to accept the fact that it was NOT Harker who had hit him, and the two men shook hands.  But just when Harker least expected it, Tracy took the wrench that Harker had still been holding, and gave Haker a vicious shot to the throat with the wrench! Before he left the building though, Tracy was sure to insult all the fans in attendance that afternoon, the he got back in his helicopter and flew back to Tennessee.
