2016 MWR Wrestler of the Year – Mike Outlaw / Dez Wellston

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 16, 2017

1Mike Outlaw continued his rise to be one of the top young talents in the Midwest in 2016 by seeking out the toughest competition he could find. Starting the year off Outlaw challenged Brandon Espinosa in a hard core match before setting his sights to St. Louis Anarchy. Though Outlaw would struggle in the win department at SLA, he quickly earned the respect and love of their passionate fan base.

 

He would team up with Justin D’Air in a tag team classic at High Risk Wrestling against the Riegel Twins (Logan & Sterling) for the vacated Tag Team Championship. Due to the loss, the two friends quickly became enemies that were set for a brutal ending later in the year.

 

 

Outlaw, a former Dynamo Pro Wrestling Champion would set his sights on regaining the title against his archrival Jake Dirden. During this time he entered the WLW Jr. Championship tournament, losing to Jayden Fenix, who would go on to lose to Jon Webb in the finals.

In June, Outlaw would enter the High Risk Wrestling Mayhem tournament defeating Jake Dirden in the first round. In the triple threat finals, Outlaw won the championship over former PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins and Kiyoshi Shizuka.

In July, he challenged MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa at MMWA in a hard fought contest, just coming up short. Two weekends later, Outlaw earned the biggest win of his young career when he pinned Ring of Honor superstar Delirious. In August, Outlaw, would add his second Dynamo Pro Wrestling title to his resume by defeating Jake Dirden. A title he would hold until December when Brandon Aarons. Outlaw would end the year losing a thrilling last man standing match against D’air at High Risk Wrestling.

Outlaw would wrestle throughout the Midwest for Dynamo Pro, Saint Louis Anarchy, PWCS, MMWA, Proving Ground, WIA, New Breed Pro, Metro Pro, High Risk Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Resurgence . He would have killer matches with the likes of Davey Vega, Gary Jay and fellow young star Kevin Lee Davidson. His hard work would pay off as he now heads into 2017 as a full time NWL contracted superstar, now named Dez Wellston.

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.)

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