Outtkast d. Reilly MaGuire with the Case Study (6:33).

”The Caramel Bear” C.J. Shine d. Heavyweight Champion “The Wind Of Destruction” Makaze by DQ when Makaze choked Shine with a leather strap (9:09). Adrian Surge hit the ring with a strap of his own to run off the champion. Makaze brought out all of the roster’s rulebreakers as backup to surround the ring, but Surge had plenty of his own backup…and the entire roster had to separate the two as they brawled! This led to Surge challenging Makaze to a lumberjack strap match at the September 21st show in St. Louis…Makaze didn’t want to accept, but co-promoter Crystal Yount said the match would happen or she’d strip Makaze of the title!

New Champions lead Proving Ground Pro into the new year:

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 11, 2013

From Brady Lawrence

Proving Ground Pro‘s final event of 2013, Emergency Response, was a huge success and an absolutely wild night of action. New champions highlighted the best night of P.G.P.’s first year with a record crowd and hottest show to date!

“America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing is one of the few men today that has the package to match Jake Dirdens tenacity in the ring.

 photo DDDD_zps6ad434d2.jpg

Jake Dirden brings the pain to Crossing in route for the PWP Title. …Could these two men be heading towards a feud that could last for years?

With P.G.P.’s Franchise title vacant going into the evening, a one night,four man tournament was set to crown a new champion. The first round pairings were Ruff Crossing vs Tyson Dux and Jake Dirden vs TaDarius Thomas. “America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing was able to move passed Canadian star”Textbook”Tyson Dux in a match that pushed Ruff to his limits.

 photo EE_zps74c371a6.jpg

“Textbook” Tyson Dux looked to take the “America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing to school early on.

Dux’s scientific mat skills were almost too much for Ruff Crossing, but the big cowboy surprised Tyson with a roll up and moved on to the evenings main event. In the other first round match “Dirdey Jake Dirden overcame TaDarius Thomas in a classic battle of size versus speed.

 photo E_zps22e9bf24.jpg

TaDarius Thomas is a powerful man with a huge upside. Here he wisely tries to keep Dirden grounded.

TD showed the skills that made him P.G.P.’s first Franchise Champion by bringing his “A” game, putting Dirden in a tough spot on several occasions. In the end the size and power of the 6’10” bearded wild man proved too much for TD and “Dirdey” scored a pin off a huge driving choke slam, moving him on to the championship main event. The main event was then set, Ruff Crossing versus Jake Dirden for the P.G.P. Franchise Championship. This match had no time limit or disqualification, a winner must be decided. This stipulation resulted in Dirden calling Crossing out to the floor to start the match, this was a wild street fight from the opening bell. Spilling in and through the crowd from the get go, Crossing versus Dirden was and absolute old school classic that seemed to culminate in “Dirdey” Alabama slamming Ruff through an extremely stiff table. Somehow Crossing managed to kick out on the 2 and continue the match. Unable to get the 3 count Dirden appeared shocked and seemed to be taken out of his game, this allowed Crossing the opening he needed to hit Jake with a high impact lariat and score the pin. Congratulations to Ruff Crossing, new P.G.P. Franchise Champion.

Zero1 X World Champion Jonathan Gresham can fly and wrestle with the very best in the world.

P.G.P. Cutting Edge Champion”The Apex” Blake Steel changes the tide with his power advantage.

In the surprise shake up of the evening, P.G.P. Cutting Edge Champion”The Apex” Blake Steel was taken to a 20 minute time limit draw with Zero1 X World Champion Jonathan Gresham. This was the proverbial wrestling clinic. Both men executed solid game plans, but neither could gain a submission or 3 count before the time limit expired. With the crowd wanting 5 more minutes, Gresham and Steel seemed ready to make that happen. Before the referee could call for a restart, Mario Andrew Crivello interrupted the proceedings and cashed in the Cutting Edge Golden Ticket he had won earlier in the evening. This forced Blake Steel into a second title defense against a rested and ready Crivello. After kicking out of several early pin attempts, “The Apex” began to get the best of Mario and seemed on the verge of winning, but a distracted ref left an opening for Crivello’s manager “Mouth of the Midwest” J.P. To throw powder in Steel’s eyes.

The Midwest Wrestling’s savior KC Karrington?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 22, 2010

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role….You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange you put on a mask.
-Jim Morrison

Change is inevitable. It happens every day; no one or thing is immune. Who we were, could very will be quite different than who we are now. Who we are now could very well be a lie.

I hope that’s the case of young KC Karrington.

KC Karrington (Photo Credit Stephen Jones)

When I first met Karrington, he was very young looking and one had to tell me that he was in fact a wrestler. I watched as this “wrestler” signed autographs and met with kids at a meet and greet in Wood River Illinois. Smiles were shared as Karrington took pictures  with the young fans  and told stories of his young ring career and the happenings of WWE.

KC Karrington was living the dream.

I was surprised to see Karrington improve with every match. His love of wrestling would shine in matches with his tag team partner Steven Kennedy, collectively known as the Ego Express. The two was always entertaining and their fast paced style kept fans on their feet.

The Ego Express wqas tested when they  were set to meet the MWR 2008 Tag team of the Year Darin Corbin and Ryan Cruz otherwise known as the Northstar Express. In a classic match, the hometown fans were thrilled to see them get a monumental win. The Ego’s were set to challenge the NSE for the title of the top tag team in the Midwest.

Or so it seemed…

Out of nowhere, Karrington announced that even though he would still team with Kennedy and the Ego’s, he had other plans. Those plans were to challenge the top wrestler in the Midwest at the time Jeremy Wyatt. “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt had been on a tear dominating every competitor that any promotion put in front of him.

Honestly, I liked Karrington and would be rooting for him but I gave him zero chance.

Karrington would not be denied. The hard work, dedication and desire to reach the goal would allow him to prove his naysayers wrong. He would go down as one of the few men to pin Wyatt in the past three years.

An impressive feat, for a young man who had been in the sport in such short amount of time. Life was looking good for KC Karrington.

Or so it would seem….

Refs have wisely kept their distance from Karrington over the last few months (Photo Credit Bill Smith )

Quietly with no fan fare, KC Karrington was gone. It would be almost a half year to the date till I saw KC Karrington. Out of nowhere came a wrestler that I had not seen before, jacked with muscles and full of ink he came towards me. I was shocked when the once looking “kid” had transformed himself into a powerhouse.

I was looking forward to getting down to what his secret to getting in shape so I asked him. I didn’t get two words out of my mouth when Karrington interrupted me and coldly stated “ Do not talk to me unless I speak to you first, you hear me? I am God, I am hear to save wrestling in the miserable state that it is in here in the Midwest. Your readers, the site, the fans and the wrestlers today better learn to follow me or they will PAY!”

It would not be long that the brutal feud of the Ego Express and the Bumrush Brothers (Shorty Biggs and OuTKaSt) would explode. After taking a loss to the ultra popular tag team of the Bumrush, Karrington would lose it. He viciously used a chair on OuTKaSt after the match. During the attack he repeatedly yelled out “I am GOD!

The feud would heat up as the summer went on as we chronicled here at MWR at this post. Déjà vu it happened again on July 24th. OutKaST after earning a hard fought win against Kennedy would find himself taking a shot from a chair courtesy of Kennedy and Karrington. On and on the beat down went with Karrington berating OuTKaST and the fans for their sins.

Even Ego Express Partner Steven Kennedy is stunned with the brutality that Karrington delivers against their arch rival OuTkaST. (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

Karrington knocked out the ref Michael Crase, then continued his assault on OuTKaST. (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

“I have no regret or remorse for the beating I inflicted on the Outtkast. The revelation was for the sake of his salvation, and was for his own good, whether he realizes it right now or not. I was simply trying to set Outtkast free…trying to help him see the light and the peace that comes with accepting the Midwest Messiah into his heart. I will help Outtkast and the rest of my disciples see that my ways are righteous and my mission is true. Just like the rest of them…he is too ignorant to see it for himself. He will accept me as his savior….be it by choice or by force.”

In what seem like forever till the officials were able to separate Karrington and Kennedy from OutKAst. A chill ran up my spine as I witnessed the evil look in KC Karrington’s eyes and destruction that he seemed thrilled to deliver.

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free
– Jim Morrison

Evil is in the eyes of KC Karrington (Photo Credit Stephen Jones)

I sent tapes of Karrington recent actions to wrestling psychologist Jason Thomas. When I got back with Thomas I could hear the concern in his voice about Karrington as I asked him why the change?

Thomas stated “What is interesting is that for the most part, individuals that find success also relate the accomplishment with happiness. Even with big wins against the Northstar Express and Jeremy Wyatt, Karrington has regressed. The question remains was the feeling of being on top, disappointing to Karrington or did he resent the fact that still not enough to please him?”

I was able to catch up with Karrington’s partner Kennedy who had this to say about his fellow Ego partner Steven Kennedy “A lot about that night seems like a blur to me. But I do distinctly remember one thing, the look in his eyes. I’ve never seen that look in KC’s eyes. It’s like he wasn’t in control. For a split second, I felt like I was looking at someone else entirely.

We get back to our dressing room after that and he stands there like nothing happened at all. I remember standing there thinking to myself, ‘This guy nearly murdered Outkast in front of an audience.’ I’ve been guilty of some devious stuff in my career, but I’ve NEVER seen someone get absolutely destroyed like that. It’s like something has changed in KC, something that was buried deep within him has finally snapped.”

Thomas went on to say that “ Karrington has what is called a Messiah Complex, state of mind in which an individual holds a belief they are, or is destined to become, a savior mixed with a God Complex where he believes that he is above others.. The scary part of this is that there was no remorse at any of his attacks. In wrestling if you look closely you see feuds go all out but at times there is a peak or hesitations in their attack where there is a line drawn. With Karrington the past few months their has been no bounds for his contempt. Even in his partner Kennedy who seems to condone Karringtons actions there was moments where he back off. That wasn’t the case with Karrington.

The last words from Thomas was an eerie warning to all “ I highly urge wrestlers around the Midwest to keep their distance from Karrington at this time. He is a ticking time bomb that will only get worse. At this point I have to worry about the safety of the fans that Karrington has stated he is here to save.”

Last words from Karrington.

This is the prophecy….I have always been and will always be. I am here to be living water for midwest wrestling and I will raise myself up onto the highest seat of Dynamo Pro Wrestling. I will make myself the Morningstar and the light by which all must follow. My church will be established, and my name will be praised. “

“K.C. be with you. Amen.”

MTV’s Road Rules Dan Walsh wins HVW Livewire Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 19, 2010

You have seen him thrill fans on MTV’S reality TV show Road Rules, this past Saturday Dan Walsh won the coveted High Voltage Wrestling Livewire Championship in a 4 man scramble match.

The match featured three of the most talented superstars in St Louis today when the POWERFUL Trent Stone, the FEARLESS OuTKaSt and the BREATHTAKING Billy McNeil gave an exciting match to get their hands on the title.

In a bit of an upset it was Dan Walsh who would have his hand raised at the end of the night but it would not be without controversy as Walsh had a handful of Stone’s tights to get the Victory.

Dan Walsh will have his hands full to hold onto the title, as the HVW Livewire curse or blessing to some have struck many. The first HVW Livewire champion Brandon Espinosa held onto the title for just under and hour till the “Tokyo Monster’ Kahagas  won the title later that night. Kahagas would use the belt as a stepping stone to rocket to the top of the chain by winning the HVW Heavyweight Championship.

Mike Sydal would win his first ever singles championship when he became the HVW Livewire Champion on the way to becoming the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illiustrated Rookie of the Year. Shortly after Mike was being courted by Ring Of Honor when the exciting young Brandon Aarons defeated him in the spring earlier this year.

Aarons due to personal reason was unable to defend the belt in August and this show so the curse that struck Aarron’s former tag team partner Espinosa bite him.

Now we have the “Dananimal” Dan Walsh as the HVW Livewire Champion.

How long will he last is anyone’s guess. Till then lets hear from the new Champ Dan Walsh.

Look for NWA Dynamo –High Voltage Wrestling information in the near future including words from

• New HVW Champion Jeremy Wyatt.
• New HVW Tag Champions Full Contact Dojo (Jonathan Gresham & Ric King)
• Former HVW Tag Team Champs and 2009 MWR Tag Team of the Year the Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter.
Dubray Tallman catches up with the Magic Man.

Karrington turned out to be playing possum and eliminated Shorty Biggs from the equation, then tripped up KaSt as he attempted to climb the turnbuckles.

Despite the circumstances of the finish, Hennig and Cheyenne attacked Santana after the bell…which brought MsChif into the ring for the save!

Kahagas d. Trent Stone in a hard-fought matchup to retain the Heavyweight Title. Kahagas was able to avoid Stone’s trademark spear on two occasions…he escaped the setup for the Stone Crush and got the win with an exploder suplex turned straight into a small package pin! Stone appeared ready to leave the ring without accepting a handshake from the champion…at that point, Wyatt & Sterling jumped the champion! Stone, who has had issues with the Kansas City Killers in the past, decided to re-enter the ring and even the odds…leaving the champion and challenger standing tall in the ring!

Dubi meets the HVW Fans 8-7-2010

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 22, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

MWR made our way to Granite City Illinois for High Voltage Wrestling ’S return from their summer vacation with the show “Balls to the Wall”.

In the air was the feeling for a fun night of wrestling and it had been a few months since we last saw the HVW Champion Kahagas in the Midwest. Also on the card was my good friend Santana G taking on her rival Amy Hennig and a lady that we had not seen before The Great Cheyenne. The rest of the card was a surprise and I was excited to find out who else was to be in action.

High Voltage Wrestling always excites the fans, here are a good group of fans waiting for a great time.

I was not the only one, as there were a big group of fans that came a couple hours early to be first in line for all the hard hitting action. Brian and I took the time to say hello and there were a few familiar faces in this group. One was superfan Firefighter Andrew from Granite City, Illinois, and another one was Joe from Fairmont Illinois. Joe you may recall was one of our fans that had hoped to get a picture with one of his favorites at NWA Dynamo recently with Shorty Biggs. Shorty was unable to make it to the show due to car trouble but the word on the street is that the Ego Express of KC Karrington and Steven Kennedy may have had something to do with the car breaking down.

Shirley, Glenn and Pauline with the Magic Man

The first group of fans that I met to my surprise was big fans of the manager “The Magic Man”. The Magic man is one of the most charismatic men in the sport today and it easy to see why people like him even though his actions seem to be on the shady side at times. Shirley, Glenn and Pauline from Granite City were able to meet the one and only Magic Man.

Kahagas and Clayton

Kahagas with Wrestling09 (John)

Kahagas with Dubray Tallman

I caught up with Clayton from Fairmont, Illinois and John from Granite City who both wanted their picture taken with “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas. I have wanted my picture taken with the champ myself for sometimes. Kahagas English is very limited so thankfully HVW promoter TNT Keny G was able to interpret for us to get Kahagas to understand what Dubi meets the fans is and the three of us was able to get that elusive picture with Kahagas.

Andrew the Firefighter with Kahagas

Before the Champ left Andrew who is a huge Kahgas fan, so much that last year for Halloween (That’s my birthday so if you want to send gifts contact me and I will tell you what I want.) Andrew dressed up as Kahagas.

Picture of Andrew dressing up like Kahagas for Halloween, could a dream team of Kahagas and Andrew happen one day?

So it would only be fair that Andrew got his picture with his Idol.

OuTtKaSt ,Joe and Shorty Biggs

I was happy to see that Joe’s favorite Shorty Biggs was in action with his partner OuTtKaSt and the Bumrush Brothers were ready to repay the Ego’s for the vicious attack they put on OuTtKaSt at NWA Dynamo. If you want to see for yourself check out my buddy Mike Van Hoogstraats photo recap of that event here.

OuTtKaSt , Amanda and Shorty Biggs

The Bumrush Brothers were more than happy to meet Joe. As soon as we were done taking the photo Amanda Blasé from ST Louis let me know that she was all for getting her picture taken with one of today’s most popular tag teams.

Norman with the lovely but dangerous Amy Hennig

I had mentioned about the ladies triple match earlier and it never fails that us ladies can get the attention of you guys in no time. That was true with one of HVW’S strongest supporters Norman who was thrilled to get his picture taken with Amy Hennig.

Julie , Tommy Mike and Anthony with the Midwest Sweetheart Santana G.

I had promised the early birds of the night a picture with one of their favorites before the night was through. Tommy, Mike, Anthony and Julie all decided on HVW own Santana G.

John and Dubray Tallman

Well girls, your not the only one who has your fans, John or as he is known on the wrestling boards, Wrestling09 asked me for another picture beings that Brian lost the last one awhile back that he took of us. I was honored to have my picture taken with one of the Midwest wrestling’s biggest fans.

Dan Walsh with Anastasia and her dad Will.

During the evening the HVW wrestler that was kind enough to wear the MWR shirt to the ring and throw it to a lucky fan turned out to be Dan Walsh. Walsh would have his hand raised against the Magic Mans protege  Sir Bradley Charles but before the bell rang he targeted a young lady in the back and he showed his skills when young Anastasia. After the matches Dan joined Anastasia and her dad Will for a picture.

I would like to thank all the fans and wrestlers who made this Dubi meets the fans a lot of fun. In the near future look for a photo recap of this show and as always look for us at a show near you soon.

Love Dubz.

The Ego Express and the Bum Rush Brothers feud heats up!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 20, 2010

Throughout the history of sports there have been teams that were good, maybe great but they were unable to beat that important rival or win that big game.

Not to long ago my favorite American League baseball team the Boston Red Sox just could never seem to get that convincing win against the hated New York Yankees or win the World Series. From 1920 through 2003, the Yankees won 26 World Series championships and 39 pennants, compared to only four pennants for the Red Sox. To make matters worse, in every year that the Red Sox won the pennant — 1946, 1967, 1975 and 1986 — they lost the World Series four games to three, leaving them with no World Series titles.

Back to pro wrestling I give you a classic case of two such wrestlers that are very good but just as  hated as the Yankees, this rings true with the Ego Express of KC Karrington and Steven Kennedy of their dominance of the popular Bum Rush Brothers OutKasT and Shorty Biggs.

The history goes back to Gateway Championship Wrestling in 2006 when the Ego’s were the GCW Champions and the Bum Rush chasing the titles. The Ego’s would be able to retain the titles in exciting and close matches during their reign. The Bum Rush Brothers would be able to win the GCW tag titles against the European Union (Even Gelistico and Pierre Abernathy).

Fast forward to today and we find that some things never change. On May 1st in Pevely Missouri for NWA Dynamo, the Egos would once again defeat the very popular BumRush Brothers. The two teams went at it with the Ego’s taking every shortcut and cheapshot they could do to edge including with having the feet on the ropes to edge out the win. In the end it would draw the ire of the usally good guys of Biggs and OutKAST to attack the Ego’s after the match

In Glen Carbon on May 22nd Illinois NWA Dynamo returned with a one on one match up between KC Karrington and OutKast. The Bum Rush Brother would earn a hard fought victory but the taste of victory would be short when Karrington blasted OuTKaSt with a chair leaving him laid out.

A month would pass before the Egos and the Bum Rush Brothers met once again on May 26th but the time away did not cool off the tension between the two. A back and forth battle that once again looked to have the Bumrush Brothers with the bragging rights but it would be an outside interference that would cost the Bum Rush Brothers the win when Karrington ultimately propelled his team toward a win by throwing baby powder—which the ring announcer tossed to him—into the eyes of Biggs

Controversy would be the talk of the night when I was in Glen Carbon IL on July 24th  when the two teams were set to face each other in individual competition. Steven Kennedy was set to take on OutKaSt while Shorty Biggs was to meet KC Karrington. Word got around quickly that Shorty Biggs was not in the building due to car trouble. One wrestler who would like to remain anonymous told me that he over heard the Ego’s laughing that there was no way that Biggs car would ever get him to the building that night.

I didn’t think anything of it as I took photos of the match between Kennedy and OutkAst. In a very good match the fans were thrilled to see the Kennedy miss the Magic Bullet and win with the roll up. While the fans clapped and gave their approval, I knew it was the intermission so I hurried to get my good friend and fellow photographer a beer for helping us. I was halfway there and to my amazement or should I say disgust when I looked back to see KC Karrington enter the ring and double team OutKaSt in one of the most vicious attacks in recent memory.

Patrick Brandmeyer was on hand at High Voltage Wrestling when the Ego Express and the Bumrush Brothers once again went at it. Here is the quick play by play from Brandmeyer “K.C. Karrington was thrown out of the ring and appeared to suffer a knee injury, drawing ring announcer Wesley Cox  and the referee over to check on him. This conveniently left no one to count the pin when OuTtKaSt had Steven Kennedy covered after a double-team powerbomb. Karrington turned out to be playing possum and eliminated Shorty Biggs from the equation, then tripped up KaSt as he attempted to climb the turnbuckles. The Egos finished off KaSt with a double neckbreaker and SSK got the pinfall.”

The Bum Rush Brothers are desperate to get that big win from their rivals.

Have faith Shorty and OuTkAst all you have to do is look at the 2004 American League Championship series between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. John Sterling, Yankees radio announcer before Game 4 stated “The Yankees have a stranglehold on the series and yes the Yankees even had a one run lead going into the ninth inning of that very game.

What happened was the biggest choke in the HISTORY of sports, the Red Sox would go on to not only win game number four but become the first team to ever win a series down 3-0.

There was a bittersweet ending to the story when the Red Sox would have to take on my very favorite team the St Louis Cardinals to win the 2004 MLB World Series.

Moral of the story, even the most talented and low down teams like the Yankees and the Ego Express can’t win all the time.

We caught up with the Bum Rush Brothers after their hard fought loss at High Voltage Wrestling and they had this to say to the Ego Express.

Want more of what could be the feud of the year? NWA Dynamo returns on August 28th when it will be KC Karrington going one on one with Shorty Biggs. This and much more action at NWA Dynamo Wrestling !

Editors Note: To all the Yankee fans, know that some of my very best friends are huge fans of the NY, and this article is meant as a fun rib on them. If you still feel the need to send hate mail go ahead but do not miss August 28th when Shorty Biggs attempts to bring the momentum back to his team by defeating KC Karrington.
