One of the true great moments in 2011 was the return of Kevin Von Erich to the Midwest during the WLW/WWE/NOAH camp in Eldon, Missouri. Fans young and old raved about the pleasantness of both Kevin and his sons. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

Editors note: Kevin is scheduled to be at the Fort Gibson ,Oklahoma show and is (believed) to be at the Warrensburg show as well. Still MWR fans I highly encourage you to make that show as Von Erich’s sons will be in action.

Sorry about the confusion on my end.

     Now, another group of third generation wrestlers are coming to take WLW by storm and they are Ross and Marshall Von Erich, sons of professional wrestling legend Kevin Von Erich. In October of 2011, Ross and Marshall came to Eldon, MO to train under Harley’s academy during its annual week long wrestling camp. While there, they were scouted by Pro-Wrestling NOAH representatives (WLW’s sister company in Japan) and were invited to continue their wrestling training in Tokyo, Japan. In January of 2012, they left for Japan and are currently still there.

     In April of 2012, Ross and Marshall Von Erich will return to the United States and World League Wrestling. Their professional debut will be on April 20th, 2012 in Ft.

Brian Breaker 2011 Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star.

The goal of Missouri Wrestling Revival has always been to support the men and women of Pro Wrestling.

In 2010 we debut the prestigious MWR Future Star award.

The criteria is for a wrestler who has not only has the skills to make it to the top but the desire and dedication to seek out opportunities to be the best that he or she can be.

We could not be more excited than we are this year in the wrestler that we have chosen.

Not only does he have the size, build and skills to be a star in the sport for many years to come but he also has been under the watchful eye of the 8-time NWA World Champion Harley Race.

His name is Brian Breaker.

Standing at 6”3 and a chiseled 255 pounds he has burst onto the wrestling scene at the young age of only 21 years. Hailing from Sand Springs Oklahoma, Breaker has sent many opponents on his feared finisher the Oklahoma Death Ride.

With raw talent Breaker has already been able to capture gold as one half of the WLW Tag Team Champions as well as being a two time WLW World Heavyweight Champion.

Scouts in Japan have quickly noticed the talent that the man possesses and in the spring of 2011 he was invited for a tour of Pro Wrestling Noah.

Once he returned to the Midwest he has taken his bone crushing moves to Metro Pro Wrestling in Kansas City and NWA Dynamo and SICW in St Louis.

When WWE came to St Louis in 2011, he was asked to step up to take on highly hyped WWE’s Brodus Clay in a battle of two powerhouses and though Clay would get the win, it would be valuable experience for Breaker.

Meanwhile, Breaker dominated the competition in his home base of WLW including an exciting defense of his title against young Jack Gamble during the annual WLW/Pro Wrestling Noah show in Eldon Missouri.

During the camp Breaker would continue to learn from the very best in WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Steamboat, Kevin Von Erich and Steven Regal.

It is with great pleasure that we are to name the 2011 MWR Future Star of the Year award to Brian Breaker.

Stacey O’Brien 2011 Missouri Wrestling Revival Female Wrestler of the Year.

Stacey O’Brien becomes the first ever wrestler to be a two time MWR recipient in the singles category.

O’Brien returned in 2011 after an injury had sidelined her since 2009 with a mission to regain her spot as the women to beat in the Midwest.

To say that she is better than before would be an understatement as she has been touring the Midwest breaking young fans hearts and bringing fear in her opponents.

O’Brien has been on fire capturing wins against the likes of rising star Lucy Mendez to start the year at Metro Pro Wrestling.

In April, in Collinsville Illinois, High Voltage Wrestling presented a supershow with Larry Zbyszko and a special first time meeting between Santana G with special guest Dave Hebner as the referee . While Santana G looked to celebrate her homecoming back to the Midwest, it would be Stacey O’Brien to put an end to the party when she had her hand raised once again in a true classic battle of two of the best young talents in the sport.

During a memorable moment in hot month of July, Stacey O’Brien, turned the heat up even more as she had the men’s mouths drop as she came out in a sexy Metro Referee outfit to restore order in a match between Lucy Mendez and Miss Natural.

Back in action O’Brien would come back to St Louis the South Broadway Athletic Club for the MMWA and capture a victory from arch rival Mendez, though Mendez would even the score at SICW later in the year.

At NWA Dynamo wrestling on August 8th in Glen Carbon Illinois, Stacey O’Brien would take the NWA Midwest Women’s Champ MsChif to the test in a great battle that saw MsChif use her “Green Mist” to score a victory to retain her belt.

O’Brien and her arch rival Mendez would go at it all year in World League Wrestling around the Midwest. In Burlington, Iowa on September 18th the WLW Women’s title was declared vacant and it would be the Boston Bawler who would become a 3-time WLW Ladies Champion.

In October she took part in the WLW/WWE/NOAH week long training camp to improve her skills, to get noticed and to be the best that she can be.

There is no doubt that in 2010 pro wrestling in the Midwest missed the talents of Stacey O’Brien. Fans in the Midwest enjoy her while you can as she has the work ethic to make waves in Shimmer, Japan, TNA or even WWE in the near future.

We would like to congratulate Stacey O’Brien as the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year.

1st Runner Up- Lucy Mendez
2nd Runner up-MsChif
3rd Runner Up- The Great Cheyenne

Other wrestlers that receive votes Serenity, Melanie Cruise, Miss Natural

2009 MsChif

MWR exclusive interview with WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Von Erich.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 4, 2011

Photobucket

The packed house at WLW –Pro Wrestling Noah show had the opportunity to speak to Kevin Von Erich, sign autographs, share memoires of the Von Erich greatest moments and have their picture taken with the man many of the them grew up as kids cheering on as they took on the Freebirds, Iceman Parsons, Chris Adams, "Gorgeous" Jimmy Garvin and members of Skandor Akbar's Devastation Inc. This young lady waited for her turn to speak to Von Erich was an example how happy fans were about him being at the show.

Missouri Wrestling Revival was honored to be a guest of WLW during their annual WLW WWE Pro Wrestling Noah camp recently. A great week filled for the young stars of pro wrestling to learn from the very best.

For a full recap from MWR called WLW/WWE/Pro Wrestling Noah presented a magical week for wrestlers and fans in the Midwest in October.

During the camp I was fortunate able to interview Kevin Von Erich.  The Von Erich name is filled with triumph and tragedy throughout the years. Loved not only in their home state of Texas, their talents and charisma would be a huge catalyst for the wrestling boom in the 80’s.

During the time we spoke, you could tell that today he is happy surrounded by many that love him including his children.

I hope you enjoy this interview that was filmed at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling training facility in Eldon Missouri.

WLW/WWE/Pro Wrestling Noah presented a magical week for wrestlers and fans in the Midwest in October.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 25, 2011

By Brian Kelley

For the past 10 plus years the must attend wrestling weekend in the Midwest has been held in Eldon Missouri at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling Academy. Race is considered by many to be the very best wrestler in the history of the sport. During his time as the 8-time NWA World Champion he would travel across the globe defending the title including the very best in Japan. When his career was done those trips and relationships would help build a relationship with Pro Wrestling Noah, one of the top wrestling companies not only in Japan but around the world.

WLW and NOAH would team up to trade talent to allow the best to compete against each other in matches that would prepare one Trevor Murdock to not only be ready to make a run in WWE but flourish with tag team partner Lance Cade to become a 3-time WWE Tag Team Champions.

The WLW school would introduce fans to stars like Matt “the Missile” Murphy, Griz, Derek Stone, Trevor Murdock, Wade Chism, the Drill Instructor, Warcloud and Johnny Jett as they mixed it up with many of the top names in the sport like Meng, Butch Reed, Bobby Eaton, The Harris Brothers, Rick Stiener and Japan’s Takeshi Morishima, Takao Ōmori and Go Shiozaki as they toured towns for fundraisers around the Midwest.

While the school runs year round to season the young talent, the annual WLW/NOAH camp works with WWE as past trainers have been John Laurinaitis, Ricky Steamboat, Tom Pritchard, Takashi Suguira, Go Shiozaki, Takeshi Morishima, KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Kenta Kobashi, Ty Bailey, and many more.

This year’s camp featured Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, William Regal, Kevin Von Erich, and Harley Race along with representatives from Pro-Wrestling NOAH Ken Hirayama and Ryu Nakata as students around the country came to hone their wrestling skills in the ring.

I was honored to be a guest to sit in during the weeks camp as the 40 plus students took part in the camp. During the days that I was there I was impressed with the patience and dedication that each of the trainers gave each of the students.

Due to the size of the groups there were two locations for the students, one for the beginners and one for the more seasoned wrestlers. While each group would be able to get great hints on how to work a match, logic, moves and where to be in the ring with hands on from the trainers.

As the camp went on during the week, the Pro Wrestling Noah and WWE representatives wanted to see the wrestlers come up with a match, then perform it in the ring. After the match was done advise was given to each of the wrestlers on what they did right, what they could have done different and how to improve it for the fans.

During the Saturday wrestling show I sat down with a few of the students to get their take on the weeklong camp and what they got out of it. One Jonas Albert Robinson from Oregon had already been to Lance Storms camp and been wrestling since 2008 stated honestly “What I learned this week was that I don’t know anything about wrestling. When I walked through the door I thought I knew about 60% of how to have a great match but in reality it was more close to 5%. The trainers at the camp really opened my eyes on how to improve my game and give the fans their money’s worth when I get in the ring. Then I was amazed at the positivity and information that Kevin (Von Erich) provided. In the end he was such an added bonus with Steamboat and Regal.

While Jonas have been able to be in the ring prior to the week, Joe Reiling has yet to have a match but knew the importance of getting the proper training and the luxury of having Race’s camp so close to his home in Warrensburg Missouri. Reiling stepped up the plate when Regal asked for two young men to get in the ring to work the arms. Though his experience was limited he gave a 100 percent and tried to soak in all the information that his trainers were given him. During my conversations with his fellow peers in the camp they relayed to me that he had earned their respect that week and had improved a ton from day one to the final day. Reiling stated to me that he did not know when his first match would come but the camp added to the fire to learn more to live his dream to be a pro wrestler.

I watched another Oregon native Dillon Divine as he worked under the watchful eyes of Steamboat and Regal. I was impressed with his facial expressions and Divine said it best to be when said “You get what you put out of it. So go for it.

While many of the Harley students took part in the camp one young wrestler fans at MWR are aware of is the 2010 MWR Future Star recipient Sir Bradley Charles.

The award is given not only to the wrestler MWR feels has the talent but the dedication and work ethic to become better, to be the best that they can be. SBC had been to Lance Storms camp, wrestled outside the country and is a rising star at Metro Pro Wrestling, 3xwRESTLING , NWA Dynamo and SICW but he once again proved that he is deserving of the award by seeking out more training to be the best that he can be.

At the end of the week SBC debuted for WLW as he teamed up on the Saturday show with Lee Walker. & Ethan H.D in a tough loss against the team of Ryan Drago, Jeff Strong, & Dustin Bozworth. Even though SBC did not get the “W” the skills that he learned this week will give him that much more a chance to become a star around the world.

In what was one of the most surprising moments for me during the week the students were all smiles as they told me that Regal had invited them to his hotel room on the final night to discuss wrestling in a special Q and A on the week’s events, his opinions and stories from one of the most traveled wrestlers from the past twenty years. What an invitation from a man who could of easily of stayed to himself during a time that he was not required to but instead respects the sport so much that he wanted to give back to the students who took the opportunity to take part in the camp. To say that with that bit of information from the students didn’t move Regal up on my favorites of all time would be a lie.

The week would not be complete as WLW would bring the action and love to the fans. A great night of wrestling as always added with a request from Regal to actually wrestle on the card. His opponent former WLW wrestler who has worked at WWE and ROH as well as a two time WLW Tag team champion with Matt Murphy and Superstar Steve Fender respectably.

Master Sgt Ira Scott, 87 yrs young and served in WW11, Korea and VietNam total over 30 yrs

He introduced me his “hero” Master Sgt Ira Scott, 87 yrs young and served in WW11, Korea and VietNam total over 30 yrs. was in the US Air Force and done everything from crew chief on fighters, to copters to bombers to medical attention in emergency and sewed up guys so would not bleed before the medics go to um. A very remarkable man and what a real hero is really all about. 5″6″ about 145 lbs and sharp as a teen ager. Later in the night WLW announcer Dan Gier would introduce him to the fans. Out of respect everyone in attendance gave the man a well-deserved standing ovation.

As fans took the time to get their autographs and pictures taken with the stars, The personal highlight of the night for me was to have a few fans come up to introduce themselves stating that they visited the site and enjoyed it.

Photobucket

Here I pose with a fan of MWR, a great guy who we hope to see in the matches soon.

I have many friends that I know visit the site but it truly makes it worth it when I meet new friends that check MWR out so that they may know when WLW will be back in action or an interview with an up and comer.

One of my very childhood best friends Billy Howser came up for the show on the night with his friend Steve. Billy showed great taste in women once again when the love bug hit him for the “Catholic Schoolgirl” Stacey O’Brien.

Billy bought him an 8×10 of her and wanted to know when I thought she would be at in the future as I stated that she is a star as well for Metro Pro Wrestling.

As we gear up for the first ever MWR Yearbook, I have called on friends to help me add some special features for the book. One of them is famed artist ICON who work includes the world renowned painting The Gods of Thunder painting, as seen at WWE Magazine January 2011.

Photobucket

When he told me of his newest project called “Fantasy Warfare” where he will be drawing two wrestlers from different eras going to war. The first one he did was former WWE Champion the Ultimate Warrior taking on current WWE Star and former WWE Champ Sheamus. I quickly asked to have a special one drawn for the 2011 yearbook and when he asked me who I would like to see go to battle I chose two of my very favorites of all-time, Harley Race vs. Kurt Angle. A match that I think could have won multiple awards throughout the years. Fans be sure to look for this great feature in the book to see who got the edge in this exclusive feature from ICON.

We had posted the importance of Kevin Von Erich coming to the Midwest prior to the show at MWR but little did we know how friendly the man was. All night long he posed for photos giving the fans the famed Von Erich Claw and signing autographs.

One friend came up to me and was impressed on how respectful his sons Marshall and Ross were to them when they asked for a photo. Their comment, Kevin raised them kid’s right. Marshall and Ross by the way took part in the camp as they look to make a name for themselves. Their dad Kevin, proudly told me how talented they were in their high school sports during a special interview with MWR.

An exciting night of action started off with one of the hottest wrestlers in the country as “The Prince” Jason Jones continued his momentum with a win against young Corey Dunken. Jones would have been a real threat for the NWA JR title if he would have been able to get in the tournament for the vacated title left by former champion Craig Classic.

The WLW women’s title has not been as red hot since Malia Hosaka and Brandi Alexander went to war for the championship.

With Ms Natural, the most decorated champion in the company’s history back in the game the fans got to see a classic as Champion Lucy Mendez showed her heart to win a match that also featured former MWR Female of the year Stacey O’Brien.

In a WLW Classic match it would be ALL THAT Matt Murphy teaming up with Steve Fender to meet Trevor Murdock and Bull Schmitt in tag action. Each of these men have been able to take the skills taught to them by Race to make multiple trips to Japan and WWE in years past and their battles have always had a special place in the WLW faithful’s hearts.

During the match Murphy looked to have a leg injury and would not be able to continue. It looked so bad that Ricky Steamboat who was watching in the bleachers with Ms. Natural came to ringside to assist Murphy.

When out of the blue, Murphy showed his true colors and attacked Murdock and Schmitt to the shock of Steamboat and the fans.

Murdock and Schmitt would be able to recover to get the win in what many fans said was one of the most special moments in WLW History. Out of respect each men hugged one another to end the match.

RESPECT. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley )

This past spring WLW Stars Trevor Murdock and Brian Breaker toured Japan for Pro Wrestling Noah. While the two stars were on the plane tragedy struck when Hurricane Katrina exploded on Japan. The country was left in shambles and many lost loved ones during one of the saddest moments of 2011. During intermission Harley thanked his friends at Pro Wrestling Noah for their support throughout the years. In response Pro-Wrestling NOAH Ken Hirayama and Ryu Nakata spoke to the fans. They spoke about the promises of many countries to stay and help the country during the aftermath but when it came time for action many was no where to be seen, while Switzerland and the USA were front and center with support for Japan. They then thanked the fans and the country while starting a USA Chant out of respect for the men and women of the USA for their help.

Back to action the man who is the current WLW Champion Brian Breaker would defend his title against fan favorite Jack Gamble. In what I thought was the match of the night, Gamble took a beating but refused to lay down to the champion Breaker. It looked as if the speed of Gamble may pay off but Breaker was just to good as his moves of crushing power was too much for Gamble.

WWE'S William Regal.

Regal would be able to capture a hard earned win on Ace Steel to finish the nights.

Once again World League Wrestling proved that they provide the fans with moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. For the aspiring wrestler , they gave them a chance to become better and be seen by WWE and Pro Wrestling Noah Scouts and for the fans a chance to meet their favorites and watch wrestling the way it was meant to be.

If you missed this years event be sure to keep an eye out at MWR for info on all WLW shows and as soon as we know more about the 2012 WLW/WWE/NOAH camp we will post it here.

Editor’s Note: We would like to thank Harley Race, Pro Wrestling Noah for their hospitably to bring allow us to bring you the fans this awesome look at one of the most important weeks of the year. WLW for over the past 10 years have been dedicated to giving back to communities through fundraisers of their exciting family friendly wrestling shows.

Thank you to the wrestlers of WLW and the students that attended the camp for working with MWR for photos and comments for this story.

Last and most importantly thank you to the fans for their support of MWR and your local wrestling promotion.

Hope you enjoyed this feature and we hope to see you at the matches real soon.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 18, 2011

Fans around the country have fallen in love with “Rock and Roll” Mike Sydal. The brother to WWE Superstar Evan Bourne said it best during his presentation of the MWR Wrestler of the year plaque, “In 1998 MWR ranked him the number 98 in the MWR 100 wrestlers in the Midwest and two years later I was named the MWR Wrestler of the year.

Sydal would not just sit back and live off the name of his brother. From the start of his career Sydal went on the road to earn the reputation of one of the top young stars in pro wrestling today. Sydal would spent the next two years traveling around the country looking for the top competition in almost every respectful promotion in the country including Ring of Honor on Direct TV HDNET and Chikara .

Always looking to get better while training with the likes of Ring of Honor school, trainer Mark Sterling, took the opportunity to train at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling Academy and their annual WLW/Pro Wrestling Noah camp.

The hard work would earn him the prestigious title of being named the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illustrated rookie of the year. Several of the names in the past to be honored with his award are Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Bob Backlund, Kurt Angle and Randy Orton.

His work ethic and professionalism made Sydal a must see draw all around the Midwest when he would return to the area. Great matches at 3XW, Metro Pro Wrestling ,MMWA-SICW and all around the Midwest was just one of the many reasons why the MWR awards committee’s chose Mike Sydal to be named the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the year.

#####Press Release#####
For Immediate Release

October 22nd, 2011 will be another exciting night of wrestling put on by World League Wrestling! Harley Race, founder and CEO, has arranged for another professional wrestling show to return to Eldon, Missouri and this show will be unlike any other!

Each year, World League Wrestling and the Harley Race Wrestling Academy conducts an annual wrestling camp that hundreds of wrestlers have attended over the years. This camp is the only one of its kind due to the amount of media that it receives as well as the instructors who attend the camp itself.

In years past, instructors have included John Laurinaitis, Ricky Steamboat, Tom Pritchard, Takashi Suguira, Go Shiozaki, Takeshi Morishima, KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Kenta Kobashi, Ty Bailey, and many more.

This year’s camp will feature Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, William Regal, Kevin Von Erich, and Harley Race along with representatives from Pro-Wrestling NOAH Ken Hirayama and Ryu Nakata.

After the week long instructional camp put on by these 4 legends in professional wrestling, World League Wrestling will be running a show on Saturday October 22nd. The show will take place at the Eldon High School gymnasium located at 101 South Pine Street in Eldon, MO.

The entire card has yet to be determined; however one match has been announced. Former WWE superstar Trevor Murdock and “Wild” Wade Chism will square off against “All That” Matt Murphy and “Superstar” Steve. These four competitors have been with WLW for years and have had spectacular matches against one another. This tag team feud will return one more time on October 22nd.

If the matches itself aren’t enough reason to attend the show, fans have the opportunity to meet the legends themselves. William Regal, Ricky Steamboat, Kevin Von Erich, and Harley Race will all be in attendance for the event at the Eldon High School gymnasium. Kevin Von Erich RARELY makes independent wrestling appearances due to his retirement. He has guaranteed that he will at the event in Eldon on Oct. 22nd and is looking forward to meeting the fans. With Regal and Steamboat both under W.W.E. contracts, they cannot make appearances like they will be doing on Oct. 22nd. But due to Harley’s outstanding working relationship with W.W.E., they are coming to Eldon to attend the “Night of the Superstars”. Along with the two legends attending, the 2008 King of the Ring and multi-time W.W.E champion William Regal WILL BE ACTIVELY COMPETING that night. This is unheard of, but again, due to Race’s exceptional relationship with W.W.E., Regal is able to compete that night.

Eldon Family Fitness – 573-392-9997

Though we don’t always agree with the attitude of Jason Jones, we have never doubted his ability in the ring. This past weekend he survived a two day tournament that saw him be able to defeat Jeff Strong, Mark Sterling and  last but not least Ryan Drago in the finals.

Congratulations to Jason Jones as he now the momentum with a chance at the WLW Championship currently held by Trevor Murdock. Murdock along with fellow WLW Superstar Brian Breaker will be returning from wrestling in Japan with Pro Wrestling Noah in the coming days. .

Also during the weekend Lucy Mendez and Stacey O’Brien each picked up a victory in their best of 7 matches now being tied 2-2. Who will be able to find the strength and perseverance to win this series?

We thought it was lost but we got words from the new WLW Tag Champs the Cancun Kid and Ethan Wright right after their shocking and exciting victory in Eldon Missouri when they defeated Steve Fender and Mark Sterling.

MWR Trading Card 41 – Brian Breaker

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 21, 2011

Brian Breaker brings to the ring a rare combination of power and wrestling ability that has the wrestling world on notice.

Graduating from the Harley Race Wrestling Academy in 2007, he quickly joined up with rugged and tough Dinn T Moore. The two would run rough shot over the competition on their way to the WLW Tag Team Championship.

After the two broke up Breaker took that as an opportunity to set his sights on the WLW Championship. During WLW’S ten year anniversary Brian Breaker would capture the WLW title from “Superstar” Steve Fender in front of a packed house.

This month Brian Breaker traveled all the way to Japan to wrestle for Pro Wrestling Noah.

Missouri Wrestling Revival is excited to have this rising superstar as a part of our MWR Trading card set. Do not hesitate to get your own Brian Breaker trading card.
