BREAKING: Ace Hawkins wins MWR Missouri Title controversially in St. Louis!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 12, 2017

By Brian Kelley

Missouri Wrestling Revival was on hand for a packed house (att. 548) at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club on Feb 11th.  The monster Barackus defended his Missouri Wrestling Revival MO title for the first time since defeating Brandon Espinosa in January. His opponent was dangerous “The” Ace Hawkins, who has set his sights (for quite some time) on the MWR Missouri Championship.

Early on, Barackus showed the electric crowd his awesome power and fearsome attack, as he hammered home clotheslines and bodyslams left and right. Though Hawkins’s raw talents had won him the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie of the Year award in 2011, six years later he has shown that experience mixed with speed and talent is why he is still considered one of the most exciting young stars in the sport today.

During the match, Hawkins took a beating, but was able to keep his composure to stay alive, but it looked like the end was near when Barackus locked on the claw. With the force of a mac truck, Barackus lifted Hawkins up in the air and onto the mat with the clawhold slam for what looked to be the 1-2-3 from the referee Nick Ridenour and a roar of the SBAC fans.

Barackus went to celebrate his victory with the title that was handed to him.  However, referee Nick Ridenour had quickly let the fans, MMWA ring announcer Ben Simon and Barackus know that Hawkins had his feet on the ropes. As the referee went to return the MWR MO title back to Ben Simon, Hawkins went low with a kick to the groin that would end Barackus’s title reign mere seconds later.

Hawkins would not be done for the night as he would later use his new belt to level the former MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa with the strap, sending a message that he is not going to fear anyone in 2017.

Hawkins is a wanted man by both the monster Barackus and the former MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espionsa. First though he will have to see if he can retain his title when he travels to Warsaw, Missouri to take on HRW Mayhem Champion Justin D’Air in a title vs. title match at High Risk Wrestling this Saturday night, February 18.

More details on the HRW Warsaw event and Ace Hawkins as they come in to MWR.

One of the coolest moments of my career, Yogasaulting for Dragon Gate at Korakuen Hall! I love yoga and wrestling!!! – Mike Sydal

Mike Sydal has entertained fans around the world for the past few years and shows no signs of slowing down. He captured the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie of the Year award in 2009 by paying his dues through his many hours of travels in cars to wrestle in front of small and big crowds alike throughout the United States. Sydal could of easily of lived off of that accomplishments of the PWI honor and being the brother of former WWE Superstar Evan Bourne, yet he has continued to strive to improve his skills to become the very best that he can be. Hours in the gym has given him the ability to wrestle at an exciting pace while he has sought out the best to combine the psychology and ring generalship from the likes of the Harley Race Wrestling camp that has featured WWE, NOAH as well camps with the hottest company in the United States, not named WWE, Ring of Honor.

Sydal first toured in Japan with Dragon Gate from September to December in 2013.   So impressed with his work ethic and matches, the door was open for Sydal to have return to Dragon Gate this summer as the company is currently on their road to their biggest event of the year, Kobe World.

Sydal has been on tour with Dragon Gate wrestling against several of the most amazing wrestlers in the world today, while having the honor of wrestling in one of the truly historic wrestling grounds of all –time the famed Korakuen Hall.

Look for Sydal to be in action at Kobe World in a must see 6-man match before returning in August to thrill fans around in the States.

Mark Sterling is highly considered the top wrestler in the Midwest. The current MWR Wrestler of the Year debuted a few months ago so it was with great excitement when promoter Herb Simmons and I spoke that he was to return to action at MMWA-SICW.
His will face off against the Mike Sydal.

This will be the very first time that Sydal, the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illustrated wrestler of the Year will wrestle for MMWA-SICW. Sydal has had a banner year in 2010, making his way to wrestle for Ring of Honor for several months all around the country and on Direct TV’s HDNET ROH Monday night wrestling. In Kansas City fans have seen Mike Sydal on their TV screen for Metro Pro Sports wrestling.

Now for the first time Sydal will be coming to their TV in St Louis.

Who will win this sure to be classic match and where will you be when it happens? There is only one place to be and that is in East Carondelet on Saturday.

Fans of the big men of wrestling, will have their gift in the match of Ron Powers going toe to toe with the Big Texan. These two have fought inside the ring and outside the building with no definite answer to who has the edge. The pressure will be on both men as Simmons has mandated that this be a Leather strap match.

Last month tensions was up in sell crowd at East Carondelet during the battle between Dave Vaughn and Brandon Espinosa.

Vaughn is looking to regain the momentum back after losing the MMWA-SICW Championship from Espinosa’s teammate The Future” Donovan Ruddick in Travis Cook’s group ‘The Elitism’.

Photobucket

Espinosa is one of the very best in the game today and with Travis Cook in his corner he looks to keep Vaughn from moving back up the ladder with a big win in this 2 out of 3 falls match. Promoter Simmon’s issued a stern warning to Travis “the crook” Cook that if he interferes there will be a price to pay.

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.

Good luck to Midwest stars Mike Sydal and Kyle O’Reilly at Chikara’s Young Lions Cup.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 24, 2010

Missouri Wrestling Revival would like to send out the support to two wrestlers who have made waves in the Midwest recently in the 2010 Chikara’s annual Young Lions Cup tournament on August 28th.

Mike Sydal is one of the most loved wrestlers in the Midwest with fans clamoring to know what he is up to and when he will be back in the area. In 2009 he won the PWI Rookie of the Year, with that said it is not a given that this young up and comer can get by the lesser known but just as dangerous Keita Yano in round number one . Yano will look to ground the high flying Sydal and move forward in this prestigies tournament.

The other Midwest star is Vancouver Canadian star Kyle O’Reilly has had extensive runs in the Midwest including nearly taking home the NWA Missouri Championship in May from Davey Vega at NWA Dynamo. The two battled in and out of the building in a war between two of the best young talents today. O’Reilly will meet Adam Cole in round number one, Cole is a man who O’Reilly has been in battle with before but the stakes will be much higher as each of them looked to make a name for themselves.

Prior Chikara’s Young Lions Cup tournament winners include Midwest stars Arik Cannon and Chuck Taylor we send out the best wishes to these two young warriors as they look to bring the cup to the Midwest.
