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.

Remembering the Great Harley Race – Gone at 76, August 1st, 2019

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 2, 2019

The wrestling world will never be the same as the great Harley Race has left us at the age of 76. Race was a native of the Midwest growing up in Missouri. He was known as one of the toughest men to ever enter the ring, with his entertaining and believable skills he earned respect around the globe. Race would capture the NWA Worlds Championship 8 times, and become just one of six men to have been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, the NWA Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame.

Race was known for his great relationship with his fans. Throughout his years as a promoter at World League Wrestling, there must be hundreds of thousands, if not a million photos he gladly took with his fans. Kids lit up around him and you could really see him enjoy interacting with them. His penmanship and the time that he took with his autographs were one of the best in the sport.

I grew up watching All- Star Wrestling from Kansas City at 12 o’clock midnight.  To say he is the reason I am writing this today is an understatement. I have always felt blessed that the Midwest had Harley in the area. He could of retired anywhere in the world or promote in an area that was given more love by the media, thus make more money but Harley always gave back to the Midwest. Through his fundraisers with WLW he helped those with disabilities, as well as school and communities. Through his wrestling school, young wrestlers from Trevor Murdoch, CM Punk to Tommaso Ciampa took their time to learn from the best.

Even with all the awards that the man received, I feel as if he deserved so much more fan fare. I am so thankful to have been with his promotion WLW for the past 10 plus years. Thanks to one of my best friends Dan Gier, I got to know my hero a little more when I started MWR. Race allowed MWR to present awards in his ring from the start when WLW was on tour. With Race’s seal of approval it allowed me not to only do something I love but build friendships with his wrestlers, ring crew, announcers and referees that will last a lifetime.

We gave Harley Race a MWR lifetime Achievement Award from MWR, and let’s be honest with as many awards as the great Race has received it could of been just thrown in the closet. Yet, I was so honored to had seen it one day while talking to him in his office on his wall.  It may sound silly, but it was a personal highlight of mine. He also agreed to be a part of the MWR Trading card set adding the icing on the cake  for a set of 100 cards of stars in the Midwest and around the country. I have cherished memories of speaking to Harley Race at the CAC with my fiancée as we all were getting ready for the banquet, taking photos of him with superstars, fans and his students. You just can not put a price tag on that.

I will always remember where I was when I heard that he passed away. Forever August 1st will always be Harley Race day.

Thank you Harley for being you.

We love you and will miss you.
