Missouri Wrestling Revival was proud to team up with On the Ropes Network to present two of the top young stars in the country (Danny Adams & Paco Gonzales) with their 2016 MWR Tag team of the Year plaques at Glory Pro’s  Long May We Reign event.

Together they are known as Alpha Class and in 2016 defeated a who’s who of tag teams to earn the honor of being named the 2016 including winning the Proving Ground Pro Tag Team titles. It is hard to believe that the two have become so good, so fast but under the wise tutelage of former Michael Elgin the results do not lie.

In and out of the ring Adams and Gonzales carry themselves as professions and that is why they fans are clamoring to see them in action and promoters are lining up to book them.

We were thrilled that Ray Dunmire and Oscar Rendon of On the Ropes Network quickly became a sponsor of their 2016 MWR Tag team of the Year Plaque’s and it was announced that we would present them at the standing room only show of Glory Pro in May.

On the night the two wrestled in singles action with both picking up wins as Paco Gonzalez defeated Jason Cade

and Danny Adams defeated Louis Lyndon.

Now the two will face each other at Glory Pro on July 9th.

 

Be sure to watch out for these two young superstars at an event near you as the best is yet to come.

Thank you goes out to the promotion Glory Pro for inviting us to honor Adams and Gonzales at their promotion. Glory Pro  Returns on July 9th with a Supercard.

 

 

Be sure to support our sponsors of this award On the Ropes Network  as they have  a great interview that you will sure to enjoy with Ring of Honor stars Dalton Castle and Jay Lethal that will be dropping soon.

Till then check out their website here and their podcast on ITUNES.

The OTR Network started as a small podcast in its humble beginnings. Over the year, the podcast grew, garnering attention from all across the world in countries like the UK, Japan, and India.

Ray Dunmire (CEO) invested everything to make sure OTR was a recognizable name in the wrestling business!
Now, the OTR Crew are taking the OTR name, brand, show, you name it, to the West Coast in the hopes of growing it even bigger than it is!

Be a part of the journey and see where we end up!

Bunkers (220 Old Route 36, Illiopolis, IL) is blowing up for THE JOB!!! January 28th (Saturday) just got even better…. PGP has been informed by Jason Saint that he will be representing international star and former Middle Kingdom Wrestling Champion,”The Arrogant Atheist” Dalton Bragg. Mr. Bragg (w/ Jason Saint) is returning from China for a rare U.S. appearance before leaving to compete in Mexico. Seemingly money is no object for Dalton Bragg as he has retained the services of Jason Saint to represent him during his limited U.S. appearances, including his trip to Proving Ground Pro on January 28th.

 

We received a correspondence, after an apparent scouting trip, from Mr. Saint with a number of complaints including the height of the ceiling at Bunkers, the temperature of the beer at Bunkers, the lack of European or Chinese imports at Bunkers and the average IQ/ income of the native Illiopolis population. In response we promise to bring extra ice if they (Dalton & Jason) bring their own import “Fancy” beverages…And, we wish Dalton Bragg (and Mr. Jason Saint) good luck with not one, but TWO opponents as we now have another 3 Way Dance on the card at THE JOB. The “Arrogant Atheist” Dalton Bragg (w/ Jason Saint) will now face both C.J. Shine and Pat Monix!!!….This is flat out AWESOME!!!

THE JOB is the best damn night of independent professional wrestling in Central Illinois, look at this amazing card….7 matches of pure Proving Ground Pro mayhem… Two separate Ryan Buckley Memorial Tournament qualifiers with “Leader of the Pack” Stephen Wolf vs. “BuckNasty” Bucky Collins (w/ Zeke Zshe) and “Iron Demon” Shane Mercer vs.“Bad Wolf” Blake Belakis (The winner of the 2017 RBMT will receive the vacant PGP Franchise Title)…Tag team Title 3 Way Dance with PGP champs Alpha Class (Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez) vs The Curse (Draconis and Ovirload) vs Krotch & Dante LeoneMario Crivello in a classic confrontation versus Latin Thunder…”Fashionista” Marek Brave battles “War Horse” Jake Parnell… Twitter exclusive announcement ( @pgpwrestling ) has Barackus & Gyasi returning to face Eddie Machete & Xander Killen…And now we add “Arrogant Atheist” Dalton Bragg (w/ Jason Saint) vs. C.J. Shine vs Pat Monix in a second 3 Way Dance for THE JOB!!! You legitimately DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS SHOW!!!

2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Tag Team of the Year – Alpha Class (Danny Adams & Paco Gonzalez)

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 18, 2017

Trained by former Ring of Honor World Champion Michael Elgin, Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez, came together to form the tag team Alpha Class and quietly picked up huge wins in 2016. In January, the duo picked up a big win against former Dynamo Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions Shawn Santel and Mauler McDarby otherwise known as the Professionals. They would challenge the DPW Champions High Level Enterprise, Jon Webb and Jack Gamble coming up just a little short, but that would not deter them in the least.

While making their way to Proving Ground Pro they picked up a huge win by defeating the much larger and powerful team of Blake Belakis and Nate Redwing, while backing that up with a win against Craig Mitchell & Kenny Sutra.

In August at Pro Wrestling Resurgence Alpha Class picked up a an epic win against two of the most successful tag teams in the Midwest in a triple threat match with The Submission Squad(Evan Gelistico & Pierre Abernathy) and 2.0 (A.J. Williams & Da’Marius Jones).

Proving that that win was not a fluke Alpha Class upset the Besties in the World, Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett. Less than a month later they not only defeated The Carnivore Club (Blake Belakis & Nate Redwing) to win the Proving Ground Pro Tag Titles, but successfully defeated them in a rematch for the title.

Back in St. Louis for Dynamo Pro Wrestling they would lose a hard fought title match against Straps Down University (Keon Option & Justin D’Air) before returning back to Proving Ground Pro to retain the titles against the Brother Reed & Micky Muscles. In the month of November they would retain their PGP Tag titles against the 3-time MWR Tag Team of the Year recipients Devin and Mason Cutter, the Hooligans.

Danny Adams and Paco Gonzalez proved that with great training, hard work and dedication they have a bright future and start the year off as Proving Ground Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions but now they also lay claim as the 2016 MWR Tag Team of the Year.

Look for an exclusive MWR Tag Team of the Year Alpha Class  artwork honoring her for their achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

If you would like to sponsor the MWR Tag Team of the Year Plaques for Alpha Class then please contact MWR at flairwhoooooo@yahoo.com. The cost is $100.00 (two plaques) and you will receive a past MWR Yearbook, a Tyler Black (Seth Rollins rookie card) and a mention on the MWR Website.
