Trevor Murdoch Retains NWA World Championship During St. Louis Sports Hall Of Fame night with SICW

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 3, 2021

On a memorable night in St. Louis, SICW teamed up with the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame to induct Larry Matysik, Mickey Garagiola, and Sam Muchnick. SICW also teamed up with the NWA to present a NWA World title match in the main event.

Also on hand for the festivities were WWE Hall of Fame Wrestler Jerry Brisco, Cowboy Bob Orton and St. Louis Wrestling great Ron Powers.

The great sports historian Ed Wheatley meet with the fans to offer them a chance to purchase his new Wrestling at the Chase book that is a must have for any wrestling fan in their collection.

At the end of the night SICW Promoter Herb Simmons had these words to say to the wrestling world.

“Tonight was a night for the history books.

Thank you to NWA President William Corgan for being part of this great event.

Three men that meant so much to our business were inducted into the St.Louis Sports Hall of Fame, Sam Muchnick, Larry Matysik and Mickey Garagolia. It was a long time coming and, I want to thank the St.Louis Sports Hall of Fame for making it happen.

It was great that family members from these three great men were present to witness history being recorded. Having Legends like Jerry Brisco, Cowboy Bob Orton Jr and Ron Powers in attendance made it more special.

Thank you Mr. Ed Wheatley for your contribution with the new Wrestling at the Chase book. Your vision of knowing fans still care helped make this event successful.

To all those from other wrestling organizations, thanks for coming out and supporting the men and women tonight. All of you there were part of an event that will be talked about for many years.

To the men and women in the SICW Lockeroom, once again you stepped up, once again you showed why SICW is recognized across the midwest.

Thanks to our friends from NBW, Scott and his crew for all their help.

And finally, thanks to the great fans, the loyal SICW fans, and the new ones that came up tonight thanking us for a great show. I’ve always said, without the fans and a good locke room there is no Wrestling business.” – Herb Simmons

SICW fans by now have to be spoiled. For years Herb Simmons have brought in a who’s who of wrestling greats from years past to go along with their roster of talent that have wrestled around the world. Even with their rich history of huge events SICW may have presented their biggest show in their history.

On October 30th the date had been set to have a trunk –n-treat, a hayride and a meet and greet with wrestling greats Dr. D” David Schultz, “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Sgt. Slaughter, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson), Demolition (Ax & Smash), Cowboy Bob Orton and Haku.

Over 800 fans around the country came early to get their autographs.  Elite wrestling historians, photographers and fellow promoters were in the house for such an historic occasion. Not only would the stars of SICW be in action but Jerry Lawler, The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson), and the man many feel is the baddest man to ever set foot into the ring, Haku challenging SICW Classic Champion Attila Khan for the title.

The wrestling night started off with the National Anthem, an introduction of the legends with Dr. Drew Abbenhaus and Herb Simmons to a rocking crowd.

MWR is proud to present with you, photos of the historic night that cumulated into one of the bloodiest, hardest hitting matches that we ever covered when Attila Khan not only survived but conquered Haku in the main event. The outcome sent shockwaves through the wrestling world and within days the NWA signed Attila to meet the NWA World Champion Trevor Murdoch for the title in St. Louis, Missouri on December 1st.

Tito Santana Maintains Order at SICW – Feb 15 SICW Photo Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 17, 2020

By Patrick Brandmeyer

The War Machine(w/ Travis Cook) d. Richard Shaw with the heart punch (1:15). “Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent attacked War Machine afterwards but War Machine fought him off and laid him out with the heart punch.

-Billy McNeil d. “The Mountain Man” Jake Prater after the top-rope elbowdrop to the back (7:13).

 

 

-“The Son Of The South” Frankie D d. Rob Kowalski by DQ when Kowalski brought Frankie D’s chair into the ring and shoved the referee (7:20). Frankie D bashed Kowalski with the chair, but the big man shrugged off the abuse and struck Frankie with his own chair.

 

-“Superstar” Steve Fender(w/ Travis Cook) d. Bobby D with the brainbuster (10:54).

-Ax Allwardt d. “The Butcher” Damian Blade by DQ when Blade threw Ax over the top rope (7:05).

-Mauler McDarby d. “The Real Deal” Chris Kade after Kowalski tripped Kade during a re-entry suplex, holding his foot as McDarby fell on top for the pin (9:56). Cowboy Bob Orton saved his trainee from a post-match attack, setting up a tag match for the March 21st show.

-“The Night Train” Gary Jackson & Gil Rogers d. “The Talented” Ken Kasa & King Christopher Hargas(w/ Travis Cook) to retain the Tag Team Titles. Kasa & Hargas initially won when Hargas hit Rogers with a chain behind the referee’s back and Kasa got the pin (7:14), but Flash Flanagan told the referee what happened and the match was restarted. The champs retained when Rogers kneelifted Kasa into Jackson’s subset flip for the three-count (3:49 of the restart, 11:03 total). Chaos erupted afterwards with Kasa, Hargas, Fender, & War Machine beating down Jackson, Rogers, & Flanagan…they finally took their leave when Billy McNeil hit the ring with a chair.

-“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz d. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde(w/ Wyldefyre & Rob Kowalski) to retain the Classic Title; Tito Santana was the special guest referee. Wyldefyre was ejected from ringside early; when Kowalski blatantly interfered, Tito fought him off before ejecting him as well. When Wylde confronted Tito, Cruz rolled him up for the pin (10:39). Wylde attacked Tito from behind after the bell, but Tito fended him off and put him out with a sleeperhold…leading to Cruz using Wylde’s own hairtrimmers to relieve Wylde of more of his hair.
