2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Female Wrestler of the Year – Miss Monica Passeri

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 17, 2017

Italians do it better!”

If you heard that last year than you most definitely took in a wrestling event that had Miss Monica Passeri in the squared circle.

Women’s wrestling received a boost in 2016 when the Roman Dynasty of Karim Brigante and Miss Monica made their home to train with Harley Races World League Wrestling all the way from Rome, Italy. Though she was a fan favorite for all the single guys in attendance she quickly let it be known that she was not to be messed with in the ring.

Miss Monica started to wrestle for European Pro Wrestling (TV Tapings) in Europe. After that she became the Official voice of the WWE in Italian Television for WWE Afterburn and Bottomlin.

In the ring in 2016 she was put to the test and excelled defeating 2-time MWR female Wrestler of the Year, Miss Natural Heather Patera at New Breed Wrestling. That win would set off a feud that would last all summer long that would also include Stacey O’Brien.

In August, Miss Monica would capture a huge win when she pinned Paloma Starr at SICW in East Carondelet, Illinois. During that night Miss Monica and Karim Brigante would get the attention of SICW trouble makers Curtis Wylde and his number one ginger Wyldefyre leading the four on a collision course in a loser leaves town match in September.

She would participate in the annual week long WLW, WWE, New Japan, Noah camp with special trainers Dr. Tom Pritchard, Hiroshi Takahashi, Brian Breaker and the Hurricane. She took the advice and knowledge to good use when she won the WLW Ladies Championship in a triple treat match between champion Patera and O’Brien.

When WWE was on tour in the Midwest, Passeri was put to the test when she met the unstoppable Nia Jax on Raw and Smackdown. That beating may have led to her losing the title so quickly as O’Brien regain the belt in Grain Valley, MO five days later during her first title defense.

The troubles would continue when she teamed up with Brigante to take on the Wylde’s at SICW in a loser leaves town match. When the smoke cleared the Wylde’s masterfully used distraction to seal a victory that sent the Roman Dynasty packing in 2016.

Still, Miss Monica had made an impact showing what we believe here at MWR to be just a glimmer of what she has to offer in the world of pro wrestling.

With the New Year upon us, the Roman Dynasty is set to return and looks to be hotter than ever in 2017.
We would like to congratulate Miss Monica for a great year by naming her the 2016 MWR Female of the Year.

Look for an exclusive MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Miss Monica exclusive artwork honoring her for this achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

Ron Powers Explodes on Attila Khan- The Wylde’s Cause World Wide Drama

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 31, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer
Photos Brian Kelley

Note: Patrick Brandmeyer and Brian Kelley arrived late to this event.

Your ring announcer was Drew Abbenhaus; your referees were Nick Ridenour, Jay King, & Denny Thomas.

Bobby D vs. “The Enforcer” Jimmy D: I somehow suspect this may not make it to television, so the particulars of the match may be lost to the ages. All I know is that Bobby won by pinfall in 5:11 (thanks Drew & Doug).

Karim Brigante vs. “The Freestyle Phenom” Jay Howard(w/ Roy Lewis & “The Natural” J.A. Fair): I feel like I’m doomed to eternally miss Fair’s official appearances on wrestling shows; I’ve crossed paths with him at shows in the past, but never when he’s actually booked. I look forward to seeing this one as it was probably a good one, judging by the participants…guess I’ll find out in due time. Reportedly Brigante scored the victory after a roaring elbow in 6:13 (again, thanks Drew & Doug).

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent & Johnny Blade vs. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde & “Unstable” Dave Vaughn(w/ Wyldefyre): Given the nicknames, that rulebreaker team seems like a surprisingly good fit. Vincent and Vaughn have the current feud, but the history between Vincent and Wylde is extensive and well-documented.
SICWAUGLL-7

SICWAUGLL-10

SICWAUGLL-30

Blade ran afoul of Vaughn in July in more ways than one, as Vaughn scored a cheap win over him via low blow. Vincent & Wylde brawled out of the building…THAT would have been a fine time for me to walk in the door if I’d arrived a few minutes later.

SICWAUGLL-34

Wyldefyre tripped up Blade and Vaughn capitalized with the double-underhook DDT for the win in 9:49.

Moondog Rover vs. Waco(w/ Big Daddy): Circumstances beyond his control have left Big Daddy reaching for proteges, it would seem. Ax Allwardt has been MIA; Bubba Troll is out with injury issues and Vaughn was cut loose from the stable a few months back.

SICWAUGLL-47

SICWAUGLL-45

Of course Moondog remains OVAH~!. but the impeccably-attired Big Daddy had to be sure his new charge made a strong impression.

Moondog nearly won with his version of the World’s Strongest Slam, but a distraction by the manager allowed Waco to get the rollup pin with a handful of denim in 5:47.

“Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Big Jim Hoffarth vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook): This match would determine the next challenger to the Classic Title. I could have sworn a previous TV show had set up a Hoffarth vs. Wylde & Wyldefyre handicap match of some kind, but I guess I was mistaken. Kahagas had made a splash in his SICW debut with a surprising clean win over the veteran mainstay Jackson.
SICWAUGLL-60

SICWAUGLL-63

SICWAUGLL-66

This one was surprisingly short; Kahagas had Jackson cornered, but sidestepped as Hoffarth charged with an avalanche. The big man hit Gary by mistake, leading to Kahagas disposing of Hoffarth with a roundhouse kick to the head before pinning Jackson in 5:55. Kahagas is the new number-one contender to the Classic Wrestling Championship and he appears to have the number of Gary Jackson.

“Ironman” Ken Kasa & “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. Brandon Espinosa & “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook): Oddly, this was the only one of the three matches featuring Travis’ charges where he provided his own introductions. Espy and Hargas added their two cents; Hargas has shown a lot of improvement on his mic work in recent months.

SICWAUGLL-79

Kasa has been feuding with Travis Cook’s Organization in general and Hargas in particular, culminating in last month’s 30-Minute Ironman Match victory over Hargas. Kasa got Cook in the ring for five minutes and humiliated him by pulling down his pants, revealing his trademark Spongebob Squarepants boxer shorts…bwahahaha. As a result, Travis promised a reward to either of his proteges if they did some damage to Kasa in this tag match.
SICWAUGLL-87

SICWAUGLL-93

The TCO were a slightly more cohesive unit in this one, having done a lot of damage in recent months with the spike piledriver…when they teased the double-team move on Gunner, the referee warned them against it only to be blatantly decked by Espy.

SICWAUGLL-94

That drew a disqualification in 9:53 as Espy and Hargas delivered the spike piledriver…Gunner had to be stretchered out of the ring, leaving Kasa to vow revenge for his partner’s injury.

Miss Monica Passeri vs. Paloma Starr: Despite being a fan favorite in her previous SICW apperance(vs. Lucy Mendez), Paloma was a rulebreaker on this night.
a>

Notably, Brigante and Monica are fan favorites here…both have struck me as being extremely friendly and courteous in person. Monica had some clothing issues as her T-shirt was ripped, so she was covering herself for a good portion of the matchup. This actually led to a fan throwing her a jacket at one point!

SICWAUGLL-146

SICWAUGLL-148

 

SICWAUGLL-159

SICWAUGLL-175

Curtis Wylde & Wyldefyre made their way to ringside for a closer look at the bout; Monica overcame both opponent and wardrobe malfunction as she won with an X-Factor(sitout faceslam) in 8:07.

SICWAUGLL-185

The Wyldes cornered Monica afterwards, as apparently Wyldefyre has exclusive rights to female presence in this promotion…that brought out Karim Brigante to back up his lady and set up a mixed tag match for September 17th.

SICWAUGLL-207
Wylde threatened to send them back to Italy by getting their work visas revoked…and that somehow turned into an official stipulation for the matchup. However, the Wyldes will be booted from SICW if THEY lose…huh. Wyldefyre hasn’t been in a lot of official matches; her previous action took place at South Broadway almost ten years ago against Jennifer Starr, so it’ll be interesting to see how she does in next month’s mixed tag.

Ron Powers vs. Attila Khan(w/ Travis Cook), no-DQ match for the Classic Title:

SICWAUGLL-220

These two traded falls in last month’s best-of-three-falls six-man tag, setting up this bout. The referee checked Khan for weapons and found his fork, only to Travis to remind him of the stipulation so it was all for naught. As you might expect from the personalities involved, they didn’t wait long before throwing fists and brawling out of the ring. This scared the bejeezus out of some kids in my section, who were left crying and wanting to go home!

SICWAUGLL-234

SICWAUGLL-240

SICWAUGLL-244

SICWAUGLL-246

SICWAUGLL-252

SICWAUGLL-258

I dare say that Chuck Taylor(err, DUSTIN) has nothing on these two. Chairs flew, Khan bled, and miraculously they made it back to the ring. Travis instructed Khan to wedge a metal garbage can between the turnbuckles, but the momentary loss of focus allowed Powers to avalanche him from behind.

Khan was sandwiched between his opponent and the trash can and turnbuckles, giving Powers the opening to finish with the RKO in a brisk 4:34!

SICWAUGLL-260

Chaos erupted after the bell as Brandon Espinosa and Chris Hargas hit the ring to attack Powers along with Khan. Ken Kasa and Gary Jackson joined the fray, as did Kahagas…ending the show with a staredown between Powers and Kahagas, who will face each other for the title on September 17th.

SICWAUGLL-280

SICWAUGLL-272

So two matches are set up for the next East Carondelet show…

Starr Studded Femme Fatale

By Brandis Outlaw

Paloma Starr isn’t afraid of anyone and is a badass; No matter if they are bigger than me, faster than me, or even better than me, I will step up to them in the ring. Male or female! I’m an intellectual smart ass who is happy go lucky and just happy to be here in the squared circle.”

Grace, elegance, Diva, kickass, glamorous, and fearless are just a few describing adjectives to describe a majority of the young women who are in the business of professional wrestling but only a few women stand out from them to become a beacon of light in the pro wrestling world, a role model, daring, going against the grain, along with the beginning adjectives added; For those great and small to become in professional wrestling. Paloma Starr is that woman.

Only having a small window of time to get to know her and become acquainted with her; Starr, a quickly rising young woman of the wrestling world is not your typical women’s wrestler. Her unique training with professional wrestler and former ECW Superstar Taz, in New York, to her outstanding background on how she got started, her bright themed gear, and positive outlook on her young career propels her for more great opportunities and wrestling hall of fame.

The raw passion Paloma feels for pro wrestling began like most men, women, and fans of the business; as child watching it on television.

“I grew up in Juarez Mexico and Lucha Libre was part of my life since I can remember. I would go to Lucha shows with my grandmother and we would watch it on TV. I specifically remember going to a grocery store and my favorite luchador, Tinieblas, was there taking pictures and signing autographs! I was so excited to have my picture taken with him and his sidekick Aluche and the feeling that I got when I stood next to him was awesome. I remember thinking wow this is pretty cool! It would be awesome if I could do that. But I didn’t give it much thought because I had this weird perception in my mind that you couldn’t train to be a wrestler that you just WERE a wrestler.

Following her training, she met and trained with former ECW Superstar Taz becoming the first female trained at his Dojo, Starr says that she felt incredibly lucky to have the opportunity.

“I was in shock!” She says, I saw that Taz was going to start a finishing school and he was only accepting a very limited amount of people who were already trained and just needed to get fined tuned to go to the next level. I applied and didn’t think much of it, next thing I know I’m getting a call from the strength conditioning coach telling me that I was accepted and that he was going to put me thru to talk to Taz. I was at work at the time; I had to sneak off to the back room because I was flipping out so bad. When Taz came on the line I was just silent I didn’t know what to say. I thanked him for accepting me since he said out of 200 people only 6 were picked for the traveling class and not only was I one of them but I was the first female to train at his dojo ever!

Fans are always itching to know if their hero or heroine is the same out of the ring as they are in the ring, what are they like on a daily biases, laid back and easy going, or completely opposite? Starr says Taz was all the same.

“Taz is as intense as he comes off to be on TV. He is so passionate about wrestling and knowledgeable. There were times where he would get so worked up about something that I thought he was going to start suplexing us thru walls. But his motto is “intensity”. As soon as you walked into the dojo there was a banner in black and orange letters with INTENSITY printed on it. He would always point and the sign and say that it makes all the difference in the world…and it does! He would always mention that he’s never trained a female before but he didn’t treat me any different than the guys. He pushed and motivated me and showed me that I was good. ”

“Since confidence is something I’ve always struggled with in the ring. I am forever thankful that I had that opportunity; it has made me ten times better as a wrestler. ”

Paloma Starr vs. Lucy Mendez at Dynamo Pro Wrestling.

Starr is all about the fairness and equality when it comes to the ring woman or man big or small she’ll take ’em on, which sets her apart from some of the competition in today’s squared circle. In the glory days of Chyna and Beth Phoenix who entered the Royal Rumble with Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Great Khali, CM Punk, and other great main eventers in their respected time. These women showed class but were not above anything or anyone to step toe to toe with a superstar; she is no different.

“I was the only female in my wrestling training class, as I’m sure many females in wrestling were. I’ve been beating up and getting beat up since the beginning of my career. I don’t want any special treatment because I am a woman. I want to be treated equal and be seen as equal. I am a feminist so I believe in equality within the sexes. I believe as a woman if you want to wrestle a man you should be able to! I bust my ass just as hard as the guys do and my gender shouldn’t determine who I get to wrestle. I know some fans don’t understand inter gender matches but they are not for everyone, kind of like hardcore matches, etc. aren’t for everyone either. But with wrestling there’s always a niche that everyone will enjoy. ”

The absolute pure unregimented fire and devotion lives through Starr, yet there are some matches she’s not fond of participating in if she can help it.

“Battle royals have too many people involved,” She says. “It could get dangerous and most of them time nothing gets accomplished by them;” Although, the more extreme, is right up her alley.

Paloma Starr vs Lucy Mendez at SICW.

“While I prefer straight up pure wrestling matches, I did have a lot of fun doing a street match once. There were so many weapons I could be creative using them! At the beginning of my career all I did was hardcore matches. Light tubes, barbed wire, mouse traps, Tai Pei matches, chairs, anything and everything I’ve done. I can’t say I miss doing those kinds of matches but I also won’t say I will never do it again. ”

Aside from crippling her opponents with the Black Dahlia (Inverted double under hook facebuster) Starr loves to read and is an avid gamer and is open for any challenges when it comes to Madden.

“Last book I read was The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. Like I said, I’m a feminist so I love to read feminist books, especially older ones. I totally recommend reading Geek Love by Katherine Dunn and The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall. Both are really weird and absurd but they are great reads and hard to put down. Also Thr3e by Ted Dekker is a good book too. Madden is my favorite video game, I’m still pretty sure I can beat anyone at it. Other ones I’m playing at “MLB The Show” and “Jurassic Park Lego”. I play some first person shooter games but I’m not very good at them, and I don’t like playing games I’m not good at.” She laughs.

Back in early July many fans and pro wrestlers, including took to YouTube posting short video promos for World Wrestling Entertainment‘s renewed television show, Tough Enough. It’s a wonderful opportunity to show a popular named wrestling business their abilities and talents and reason why they should have a spot in the WWE. Yet, while in other promotions and traveling herself across the country, Starr believes that she’s just here to wrestle and entertain and that pro wrestling is more than getting signed to the WWE.

“Honestly it’s not just WWE for me. It’s making the most out of it. Whether it is WWE or not; I don’t see myself as “failure” if I don’t get signed, I honestly would prefer going to Japan and doing a few long term tours over there! But my view of “making it” is being able to wrestle full time and make a living off of it. But what would make me stand out is that I can offer so much more and bring a lot to the table. I am a professional and act accordingly, I have a college degree in Public Relations and advertising so I can bring in that aspect. I’ve have experience being a news producer, I speak Spanish; I am eloquent with social media. So basically I can do a lot more than just wrestle. ”

I always like to consider the inspired fans the ones who want to begin their career in professional wrestling with minimal to zero help in whether big or small towns with no sort of connection to the professionals I asked Starr what advice she can give to those beginners or an individual that wants to start following their dreams.

“It’s hard!” She starts, “I wish wrestling would’ve come easier to me but it didn’t at all. It would take me so much longer to learn something new compared to everyone else. But I would say just stick with it. Even when it seems like it can’t get any worse or harder. If you really love it and it is your passion it will all work out. Also wear knee pads and take care of your body because you will feel old fast.

“I use to lack a lot of confidence in my work and be in my head a lot but now I just try to focus on having fun. I try to do the sign of the cross before I walk thru the curtain and I’m gone. There is 100% truth to the statement that if you don’t believe in doing what you’re doing no one else will; How is anyone else going to believe it or buy it? Sometimes you have to be your own biggest cheerleader and biggest supporter. Nothing gets accomplished if you don’t believe it first.

Dynamo Pro Wrestling celebrated its eighth anniversary at the Stratford Inn in Fenton, Missouri on Saturday, June 13th with a great night of action. Mike Outlaw got his obligatory rematch against Champion Jake Dirden, but outside factors would decide the outcome once again…

The event began with the full roster at ringside for a ten-bell salute to the late “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. Dusty’s charisma, gift of gab, and overall influence on the wrestling business were undeniable and it felt like a true icon of the industry had passed away…wrestlers and fans of all ages counted themselves among those who were fans of The Dream.

 photo 1_zpsfivahh3d.jpg

Executive Director Mark Bland attempted to explain his actions against Mike Outlaw the previous month. He claimed that he wanted to teach the rookie a lesson about taking advantage of opportunities…Outlaw refused to use a weapon in his title defense against Dirden, leading to Dirden knocking out the champion with the briefcase. Bland ordered the referee to count the pinfall rather than call for a disqualification, resulting in Outlaw being cheated out of the belt. Outlaw was not satisfied with Bland’s explanation, but Dirden(accompanied by Travis Cook and Alexander P. Dixon) inserted himself into the verbal battle to set the stage for the night’s main event.

The first match of the night saw the ladies of Dynamo Pro in action as “The Queen Of Chaos” Lucy Mendez took on the debuting Paloma Starr.

Starr had the advantage in fan support, but Lucy’s experience made the difference as she scored the victory with a hanging DDT.

After her match, Mendez personally introduced “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga for his bout…he would go one-on-one with Outtkast of the Bum Rush Brothers.

 photo 13_zpsw0tgfp1g.jpg

The two had traded wins in the past so this was the proverbial rubber match between them. Aliaga distracted the referee at a key moment, allowing Mendez to trip Outtkast on the top rope and then slap him in the face. With Outtkast focused on Lucy, Elvis was able to roll him up with a handful of tights for the cheap victory.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz

The manager of Champions Travis Cook leads Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz brought his IWRG Rey De Ring Championship to the ring for his bout with Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors. Fenix’s manager Travis Cook, intent on controlling all the gold in Dynamo Pro Wrestling, challenged Ricky to put his belt on the line…Cruz accepted on the grounds that Travis finally shut his mouth!

 photo 16_zpsochzermf.jpg

 photo 17_zps4rbrpncl.jpg

 photo 18_zpsh2dtamos.jpg

Fenix surprised the veteran champion on a few occasions and nearly scored the upset more than once. However, Cruz retained his title via tapout with a modified Anaconda Vice.

The Bite Club made their way to the ring as Rocket(accompanied by Jackal) took on “The Millenial” Danny Adams in singles competition.

Rocket & Jackal had fallen short against the Black Hand Warriors in the previous month’s Tag Team Title match, but rebounded to upset the Bum Rush Brothers at Off Broadway and were looking to continue their momentum. For his part, Adams had been establishing himself as a top contender in recent months…he controlled a good portion of this matchup by focusing on Rocket’s leg. Rocket rallied, but missed an aerial move and Adams capitalized with a flying Codebreaker off the second rope for the three-count.

Justin D’Air & Keon Option were psyched for their Tag Team Title shot at the Black Hand Warriors, entering the ringside area with a special Straps Down University-themed entrance. The two rookies had been allies of Mike Outlaw in recent months in his wars with the Travis Cook Organization and hoped to derail their momentum with a big victory on this night. Michael Magnuson & Dave DeLorean had the edge in experience both individually and as a cohesive unit, making it an uphill battle for the upstart challengers. D’Air was isolated from his partner for several minutes, but Option finally tagged into the fray and his team seized the momentum. D’Air launched himself off the top rope into a 450 Splash on DeLorean, but Travis Cook distracted the referee from seeing the potential pinfall. That allowed Magnuson to bring a chain into the ring, but D’Air got it away from him and knocked him out with it…the referee turned around and made the three-count, seemingly crowning new Tag Team Champions!

 photo 37_zpspucv9cko.jpg

 photo 38_zpsz0l0yzry.jpg

 photo 39_zps4zoxy1rl.jpg

However, Travis and Alexander Dixon protested the decision due to the use of the chain…and when the referee found the foreign object on D’Air’s person, he reversed the decision and awarded the disqualification victory to the Black Hand Warriors.

After Outtkast and Aliaga’s clash earlier in the show, their tag team partners did battle as Shorty Biggs took on Brandon Espinosa (accompanied by Lucy Mendez). Shorty was intent on avenging his partner’s tainted defeat while Espy was hoping to make it a clean sweep of the Bum Rush Brothers. Lucy got involved in this matchup as well, but it finally backfired as Espinosa knocked Lucy off the ring apron by mistake. Biggs hit the Shortcut for the victory, then carried Mendez to the backstage area.

 photo 54_zpsp9hnslfx.jpg

The ringside area was crowded with humanity as the night’s main event began. Heavyweight Champion “Dirdey” Jake Dirden had Travis Cook, Alexander Dixon, and all three Black Hand Warriors on his side. Mike Outlaw was backed up by Justin D’Air and Keon Option, plus Executive Director Mark Bland was at ringside to observe the action…with all the combustible elements in one place, it didn’t take long for the powder keg to ignite. Outlaw rallied against the champion earlier and landed the High Noon top-rope elbowdrop, but the Warriors stormed the ring to break up the pin and everyone brawled. The referee made the decision to eject the extra wrestlers rather than call for an early disqualification…leaving only Cook and Bland at ringside.

Outlaw was intent on proving that he could take the big man down on his own…he felt he didn’t need extra help or foreign objects to accomplish that. If he was unable to win, he’d have to work his way back up the ladder of contention. Dirden dominated with his size and power for a while, but Outlaw kept finding ways to outmaneuver the champion. The young challenger hit a second High Noon and seemed to have the title won for a second time…but this time it was Mark Bland who broke up the pin attempt. Bland repeated his message about learning from his “experience” and seizing opportunities…in this case, it would be Dirden would take advantage of the situation, catching Outlaw in the Asiatic Spike from behind.

 photo 55_zpsxim1w6e3.jpg

 photo 56_zpsbrdgrnyj.jpg

 photo 57_zps20umdnsm.jpg

Dirden powered his opponent down to the mat but Outlaw refused to surrender; however, Bland used his executive influence and ordered the bell to be rung, declaring Dirden the winner by “submission”.

“YOU’RE FIRED

 photo 62_zpszcm8azz8.jpg

 photo 63_zpshzt6bhoq.jpg

It seemed like the show was over, but Dynamo co-promoter Crystal Yount ordered Bland back to the ringside area. She angrily told him that the fans deserved a better ending to the anniversary show than that…so she sent them home happy by declaring to Bland: “YOU’RE FIRED!” Bland was outraged and had to be physically escorted out of the building by ringside security…capping off a wild night in Fenton for Dynamo Pro’s eighth anniversary!

The 2013 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jake Dirden made sure to get there early to pick the brain of the legend Stan Hansen for over twenty minutes.

 photo 10_zpsdx5oac7y.jpg

Larry Matysik is one of the greatest wrestling minds today, unfortunately he was unable to be there, but behind every great man is a great women, for Larry it is his lovely wife Pat.

 photo 9_zpseciwpmmg.jpg

Justin Berry rocks the Rob Schamberger Brody shirt while meeting his lovely wife Barbara Goodish.

A standing-room-only audience packed the East Carondelet Community Center for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling’s biggest show of the year. Fans flooded the building to honor the memories of both the anniversary of “Wrestling At The Chase” and the late King Kong “Bruiser” Brody.

The special guests were out in force. Along with Director Of Affairs Cowboy Bob Orton, the visitors in the house included Brody’s widow Barbara Goodish, Brody’s former tag partner Stan “The Lariat” Hansen, Larry Matysik’s wife Pat, and former AWA announcer Mick Karch. Promoter Herb Simmons acknowledged his guests at the top of the show before ring announcer Drew Abbenhaus kicked off the action.

In the opener, “Dirdey” Jake Dirden joined forces with Bobby D and “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner to take on the trio of Brandon Espinosa, “Volatile” Curtis Wylde, and Bubba Troll.

 photo 31_zps1wl4xzg5.jpg

“Volatile” Curtis Wylde was in the house.

 photo 11_zpsajuwj6rf.jpg

 photo 12_zpspub6hx8s.jpg

As always, Wylde was accompanied by his “Number-One Ginja” Wyldefyre.
 photo 13_zpsuoqktfab.jpg

It was a chaotic bout, as one would expect with so much humanity in one ring…as everyone brawled, Wyldefyre accidentally tripped her own man and that led to Bobby D finishing off Wylde with a Pedigree.

Two tough guys did battle as Big Jim Hoffarth locked horns with Ax. The two had crossed paths a few times in recent months without a decisive conclusion and were looking to settle the score on this meaningful night.
 photo 15_zpsyyv3pncq.jpg

 photo 14_zps5nke42nc.jpg

Big Jim with the body slam on Ax.

The battle spilled to the floor in the early minutes and Hoffarth went for a clothesline, but struck the ringpost when Ax moved out of the way. Ax pounced on the injury and targeted the bad limb with no mercy…Big Jim attempted to fight back, but had trouble defending himself and the referee finally stopped the bout out of concern for Hoffarth’s physical well-being. Ax was the winner…but Hoffarth still wanted a piece of his rival.

 photo 20_zpszienjwo8.jpg

Chaz Wesson made quick work of Waco.

“The Old School Warrior” Chaz Wesson was out to make a statement and he did so at the expense of the masked man Waco.

Wesson unleashed a flurry of offense from the opening bell, pinning Waco in about a minute with a cross-bodyblock off the top rope…proving himself worthy of being in the thick of the Classic Wrestling Championship picture.

 photo 18_zpsxyiurkrw.jpg

The Great One Gary Jackso.

“Night Train” Gary Jackson(w/ Big Daddy) had a literally huge task ahead of him in the form of the 300-plus-pound Barackus.

Jackson was attempting to rebound from his April loss of the Classic Title to Flash Flanagan, but he had trouble dealing with the size disadvantage. Barackus crushed the veteran with a huge Samoan Drop, but experience was the deciding factor as Barackus took his time on the pin attempt.
 photo 19_zps98bjmwh4.jpg

That allowed Gary to crucifix his shoulders to the mat for the pinfall, using the big man’s own size against him.

Herb Simmons interviewed Stan Hansen and Barbara Goodish about the night’s main event: The Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal. As noted, the bout held special significance for them due to their respective connections to its namesake…many contenders would be in the ring to earn that trophy, but only one could walk away with it.

Midwest newcomer Paloma Starr went one-on-one with “The Queen Of Chaos” Lucy Mendez…the two had a wild fight in a mixed tag the previous month, but this time there would be no tag team partners to hold them back.

 photo 17_zpsr4m3qmrg.jpg

Paloma Starr has the 2014 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Lucy Mendez in deep trouble.

 photo 16_zpsoaoqmmii.jpg

Starr had the power advantage, but Lucy’s experience would play a pivotal role in this one. She managed to outmaneuver Paloma and deliver a hanging DDT for the victory, continuing her run of success in the St. Louis area.

Two men at career crossroads faced each other as Keith Smith Jr. collided with “Ironman” Ken Kasa (accompanied by Travis Cook). Kasa was hoping to get back on track toward the Classic Wrestling Championship while the upstart Smith had his sights set on his first one-on-one victory.

 photo 22_zpsqvlw3yhj.jpg

Kasa established his early dominance with his signature shotgun dropkick right after the opening bell…he could have ended the match at that point, but chose to dish out more punishment. Chaz Wesson came out to root for his protege and that drew the ire of Travis Cook…however, the manager accidentally distracted his own charge and Keith Jr. was able to fire back with a football-style leg dive.
 photo 21_zpszmahyjei.jpg

With Kasa down on the mat, Smith hooked his father’s signature figure-four leglock and Kasa was forced to tap out!

After the match, things broke down between Kasa and Cook…Kasa was able to leave the ring without his manager, but caught him in the act of attempting a cheapshot with a chain around his fist. Kasa cornered Cook and prepared to lower the boom, but his stablemate Chris Hargas clipped his injured knee from behind. Hargas and Cook dished out a two-on-one beatdown on the wounded competitor, essentially downsizing Ken Kasa from the Travis Cook Organization.

 photo 23_zpsh7rswxc4.jpg

The end of an era as Travis Cook turns on the former SICW Champion Ken Kasa.

Travis Cook had a full evening as Hargas teamed with the Mongolian madman Attila Khan against the unlikely duo of Ricky Cruz and Ron Powers. The longtime rivals had common enemies and worked surprisingly well against Cook’s team, but underhanded tactics made the difference in this match.

 photo 24_zpsv2ywc7cs.jpg

 photo 26_zpslromfphk.jpg

The match was chaotic and wild as SICW ring announcer Abbenhaus runs for his life as the action was everywhere.

As the referee’s attention was diverted, Khan stunned Cruz with a low blow before jabbing him in the throat with a foreign object passed into the ring by Travis Cook. After that, Khan scored the tainted pinfall on the former Classic Wrestling Champion.

 photo 27_zpssege9gox.jpg

The Classic Wrestling Championship was at stake as two-time titleholder Flash Flanagan defended against “The Man Of Tomorrow” Daniel Eads. Eads had received MWR’s “Future Star Award” and hoped to carry that momentum into a big victory, but Flash’s years of experience were too much to overcome.
 photo 28_zpsgouakfz0.jpg

 photo 29_zpsbqlwfytj.jpg

 photo 30_zpswpbnxytv.jpg

Daniel Eads is one of the 2014 MWR Future Stars of the Year, but Flanagan is one of the baddest men in the country. Eads put up a fight but the wily veteran once again was a step ahead to keep the title.

A missed move caused Eads to land painfully on the second turnbuckle and Flanagan followed up with a double-stomp from the top rope as Eads was hung up on the ropes; that allowed the champion to retain his title.

 photo 33_zpscw7wnggs.jpg

This young fan was rooting for Ricky Cruz or Ron Powers to win the battle Royal.

The ring filled with powerhouses at the end of the night, all competing for the honor of being the first holder of the Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal trophy.

 photo 34_zpsylomp8nt.jpg

 photo 35_zpsvmijunzg.jpg

In the midst of all the battles, Travis Cook pulled down the top rope and caused Ron Powers to tumble out of the ring. He seemed to be eliminated at that point, but Cowboy Bob Orton would allow him to re-enter the fray. The match came down to Hargas, Khan, Cruz, and Powers…Cruz eliminated Khan only to be pulled to the floor himself. Hargas charged at Powers, but Ron pulled down the top rope and Hargas fell out of the ring…leaving the former Brody protege as the winner of the battle royal!

After Barbara Goodish presented Powers with the trophy, Herb Simmons congratulated him on his win…but he had a bit of news regarding the June show. Travis Cook had been badgering him to settle the Red River Jack controversy and Herb finally had a solution: On June 20th, Ron Powers would face two members of the Travis Cook Organization…and Powers’ tag team partner would be Red River Jack. The news seemed to catch Powers off guard, but he promised that he and R.R.J. would come out on top.

 photo 37_zpseuobd8e6.jpg

On a night set up to celebrate Wrestling At The Chase and Bruiser Brody, the action in the ring told its own story and set the stage for a tumultuous summer in Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling!
