Dartallion Allen Jr. Top Draw: 2016 MWR Wrestler of the Year Dez Wellston / Mike Outlaw

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 2, 2017

MWR artist Dartallion Allen Jr. returns to the site with his MWR 2016 Award Top Draws of the 2016 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mike Outlaw. Outlaw had a great year in which he won titles and delivered exciting matches around the Midwest in just about every top promotion that we covered. MWR was not the only group that had an eye on him, as the new wrestling league the NWL signed him to an exclusive contract and fans can only see him at the Casa Loma Ballroom for NWL STL or the rare Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City for NWL KC.

This MWR plaque is sponsored by our dear friend Brandis Outlaw, and will feature this very own artwork in the frame. In the near future we hope to present it to him in person to honor him on a memorable 2016. .

The STLI was everything we thought it would be and more. Gary Jay is the 2017 STLI Champion in what could be the start of a huge season for the Submission Squad. Sean Orleans went toe to toe with Big Mike and came out alive. The most shocking news of all though was when Davey Vega made the split decision to kick his bestie Mat Fitchett low to retain the Gateway Heritage Championship in the main event.

Now a member of the Ego Busters, Davey Vega will go in to Stage One with a huge target on his back. “The Miracle Worker” will be charged with the task of getting a win for the Ego Busters AND holding on to his G.H.C. in a match against Paco! And you know that Mat Fitchett won’t be letting Vega leave the Spaulding Hall without getting some revenge!

Stage One is also our look at the newly rebuilt Blacklist! Makaze will lead his band of misfits into Alton, IL as they take on The Submission Squad! Alexander Rudolph and his chainsaw Jackie Blue will battle Evan Gelistico with Shawshank. Gary Jay will also battle Wresling’s Bride of Frankenstein Angelus Layne one on one!

The 2016 MWR Fans Choice for Manager, Referee and Ring Announcer Is…

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 30, 2017

MWR fans thank you so much checking out the MWR website and supporting the promotions, wrestlers and this past week the Managers, Referees and Ring Announcers. As you know most of these talented and hard working men and women are my personal friends so I am so glad that you had the decision to choose this fine award.

First off let me apologize for not setting an exact time in my post for the poll to end. I have learned my lesson and it will not happen again.

 

Brian Kelley -Owner and Editor of Missouri Wrestling Revival

I would like to congratulate first off Sarah Rose. In less than a year she has become a crowd favorite among the wrestling fans. MWR fans cheered her as she ring announced the last St. Louis Anarchy event as the era came to a close with Davey Vega defeating Mat Fitchett, and you can still catch her at the exciting Pro Wrestling Championship Series (PWCS). The best is yet to come for this charismatic ring announcer.

We would like to congratulate Sarah Rose as the 2016 MWR Ring Announcer of the Year.

Sarah Rose 24.89%
Don Diablo 24.66%
Ben Simon 19.51%

Lucy Mendez is a former 2-time MWR Female  Wrestler of the Year that is a double threat as a manager for the likes of Ace Steel and Elvis Aliaga. She is always one step ahead of the ref, while causing anger from the fans. Still, she has earned the respect of the fans enough to be voted as the 2016 MWR Manager of the Year.

We would like to congratulate Lucy Mendez as the 2016 MWR Manager of the Year.

2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star – Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 20, 2017

Bio courtesy of Patrick Brandmeyer

The names of Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett are well-known to Midwest wrestling fans, but the national wrestling scene has only recently begun to discover the talents of these skilled competitors.

Both men started their careers with Dynamo Pro Wrestling before branching out to the Lethal Wrestling Alliance, which would later become St. Louis Anarchy. Vega was first known as a tag team competitor and teamed with Johnny Vinyl to feud with The Ego Express(Steven Kennedy & K.C. Karrington), leading to Kennedy & Karrington becoming the first LWA Tag Team Champions when they defeated Vega and substitute partner Dingo. After that, Vega focused on singles competition…after holding the NWA Missouri Title in Dynamo Pro, he went on to capture the LWA Heavyweight Title from Gary Jay in December of 2009. Vega held the title for most of 2010 before dropping it to Evan Gelistico; this occured shortly before the transition to St. Louis Anarchy and Vega spent most of that promotion’s existence chasing the title.

Davey Vega explodes with a clothesline on ROH Star Jonathan Gresham.

In that time, Vega competed against some of the best wrestlers in the world and scored victories over many of them. That list included such names as Davey Richards, Kyle O’Reilly, Johnny Gargano, Arik Cannon, A.C.H., Michael Elgin, Roderick Strong, Chris Hero, Jonathan Gresham, D.J. Z, T.J. Perkins, Chip Day, and Martin Stone. In his final opportunity at the gold at St. Louis Anarchy’s last show, Vega finally capitalized by winning a triple threat match with champion Fitchett and Gary Jay for the title! Vega will continue to carry the championship in Pro Wrestling Championship Series as the “Gateway Heritage Title“.

As for Fitchett, his career took a similar path and he squared off with many of the same competitors as his often-time tag partner Vega. In fact, Fitchett and Vega were Tag Team Champions in both the Chicago-based All-American Wrestling and the Kansas City-based Metro Pro Wrestling!

TJ Perkins found WWE gold in 2016, but before that he and Fitchett put on a wrestling clinic at St. Louis Anarchy.

The “Dirty Rook” took his lumps in his early LWA and SLA career, enduring hard-hitting battles with the likes of Arik Cannon, Akira Tozawa, Alex Shelley, and his trainer Dingo. Fitchett was frustrated after several near-misses in title matches against Darin Corbin and Gary Jay, leading to him taking a sabbatical from SLA competition; however, it turned out that he was hiding under the mask of “Dangerous Deveroux” as he competed for SLA and PWCS. Fitchett had an uphill battle against Gary Jay as the champion rode a wave of momentum, holding the title for over two years with title defenses against some of the toughest competition in the country. Winning a thirty-man Anarchy Rumble in late 2015 finally propelled him back into title contention…and in February of 2016, Fitchett finally ended Gary’s monumental title reign to reach the top of the mountain!

Fitchett didn’t shy away from challenges as he defended his title against Evan Gelistico, T.J. Perkins, Jake Dirden, and Paco Gonzalez…but on STL Anarchy’s final night, he lost the title to Vega.

It took several years for both men to gain attention in the national independent wrestling scene, but their exposure in AAW and Beyond Wrestling has turned the heads of many onlookers. Now forming the “Blood Brothers” tag team in the National Wrasslin’ League under the names Davey Gibson and Matthew Grundy, the two look to add more tag team gold to their already impressive resumes! These two men have been considered the Midwest’s best-kept secrets, but that secret is finally getting out!

Look for an exclusive MWR Future Star artwork honoring Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett for their achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

If you would like to sponsor the MWR Future Star Plaques for Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett then please contact MWR at flairwhoooooo@yahoo.com. The cost is 50.00 each or $100.00 for both (two plaques) and you will receive a past MWR Yearbook, a Tyler Black (Seth Rollins rookie card) and a mention on the MWR Website.

2016 MWR Wrestler of the Year – Mike Outlaw / Dez Wellston

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 16, 2017

1Mike Outlaw continued his rise to be one of the top young talents in the Midwest in 2016 by seeking out the toughest competition he could find. Starting the year off Outlaw challenged Brandon Espinosa in a hard core match before setting his sights to St. Louis Anarchy. Though Outlaw would struggle in the win department at SLA, he quickly earned the respect and love of their passionate fan base.

 

He would team up with Justin D’Air in a tag team classic at High Risk Wrestling against the Riegel Twins (Logan & Sterling) for the vacated Tag Team Championship. Due to the loss, the two friends quickly became enemies that were set for a brutal ending later in the year.

 

 

Outlaw, a former Dynamo Pro Wrestling Champion would set his sights on regaining the title against his archrival Jake Dirden. During this time he entered the WLW Jr. Championship tournament, losing to Jayden Fenix, who would go on to lose to Jon Webb in the finals.

In June, Outlaw would enter the High Risk Wrestling Mayhem tournament defeating Jake Dirden in the first round. In the triple threat finals, Outlaw won the championship over former PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins and Kiyoshi Shizuka.

In July, he challenged MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa at MMWA in a hard fought contest, just coming up short. Two weekends later, Outlaw earned the biggest win of his young career when he pinned Ring of Honor superstar Delirious. In August, Outlaw, would add his second Dynamo Pro Wrestling title to his resume by defeating Jake Dirden. A title he would hold until December when Brandon Aarons. Outlaw would end the year losing a thrilling last man standing match against D’air at High Risk Wrestling.

Outlaw would wrestle throughout the Midwest for Dynamo Pro, Saint Louis Anarchy, PWCS, MMWA, Proving Ground, WIA, New Breed Pro, Metro Pro, High Risk Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Resurgence . He would have killer matches with the likes of Davey Vega, Gary Jay and fellow young star Kevin Lee Davidson. His hard work would pay off as he now heads into 2017 as a full time NWL contracted superstar, now named Dez Wellston.
