The 2016 Ryan Buckley Memorial Champion Tyson Dux + Jake Dirden Retains the PGP Franchise Champion

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 28, 2016

The second Ryan Buckley Tournament once again featured several of the top talented wrestlers in the Midwest as they honored the fallen solider Ryan Buckley. Fans filled the Peterburg Fire Department to find out who would have the honor of being the tournament champion and see if the Proving Ground Pro Franchise Champion Jake Dirden could overcome the power of Justice Jones.

Tyson Dux would show to the fans why he is one of best technical wrestlers today when he would pick up victories against Johnny Wisdom, Craig Mitchell and Jeff Cobb on the way to making history.

Tag team titles were on the line as the Full Impact Pro Tag Team Champions and 3-time MWR Tag Team of the Year, Devin and Mason Cutter pulled out all the stops to defeat Zakk Sawyer and Mikey McFinnagin.

In a major battle of power Justice Jones unleashed his power onto Jake Dirden before losing via DQ, Though Dirden was able to retain the title, Jones sent a clear message that he was a true threat to Dirden’s championship reign.

With his win in the tournament Blake Steel has challenged the PGP Champion Jake Dirden for the title in a match that promises to be one not to miss.

 

Proving Ground Pro honored Ryan Buckley, the first solider killed in Iraq that was from Hillsboro, Illinois with the first ever Ryan Buckley Memorial Tournament filled with many of the top stars in the country.

Cpl. Ryan J. Buckley, 21, was with Army Spc. Richard Morris  riding in a Humvee in Baghdad, when a blast from an explosive device killed Buckley, the gunner on the vehicle. Prior to the event a 10 bell salute was held to honor the war hero.

In the first round Blake Steel was able to withstand the quick strikes from young star Louis Lyndon In the second round Steel took it to Ethan Page with an impressive victory. Page was not done with Steel though as he assaulted him after the match targeting his left arm leaving Steel’s ability to move on in the main event in doubt. Yet, one of central Illinois’s brightest stars would not be denied as he entered the main event against his toughest test to date, the Ring of Honor Superstar Tommaso Ciampa. Blake Steel showed true heart and determination by not only surviving the war between Ciampa, but pinning him with the small package to lay claim as the first ever Ryan Buckley Memorial Tournament Champion.

Ryan Buckley Memorial Tournament Round One

Blake Steel pinned Louis Lyndon
Ethan Page pinned Mallaki Matthews
Justice Jones pinned Tyson Dux
Tommaso Ciampa pinned Mario Crivello
Perfect Addiction – Randy Ray & Perry Winkle pinned Mike Outlaw & “Mr. Nice” Nelson Sixx

New Champions lead Proving Ground Pro into the new year:

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 11, 2013

From Brady Lawrence

Proving Ground Pro‘s final event of 2013, Emergency Response, was a huge success and an absolutely wild night of action. New champions highlighted the best night of P.G.P.’s first year with a record crowd and hottest show to date!

 photo DDD_zps099db259.jpg

“America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing is one of the few men today that has the package to match Jake Dirdens tenacity in the ring.

 photo DDDD_zps6ad434d2.jpg

Jake Dirden brings the pain to Crossing in route for the PWP Title. …Could these two men be heading towards a feud that could last for years?

With P.G.P.’s Franchise title vacant going into the evening, a one night,four man tournament was set to crown a new champion. The first round pairings were Ruff Crossing vs Tyson Dux and Jake Dirden vs TaDarius Thomas. “America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing was able to move passed Canadian star”Textbook”Tyson Dux in a match that pushed Ruff to his limits.

“Textbook” Tyson Dux looked to take the “America’s Favorite Son” Ruff Crossing to school early on.

Dux’s scientific mat skills were almost too much for Ruff Crossing, but the big cowboy surprised Tyson with a roll up and moved on to the evenings main event. In the other first round match “Dirdey Jake Dirden overcame TaDarius Thomas in a classic battle of size versus speed.

TaDarius Thomas is a powerful man with a huge upside. Here he wisely tries to keep Dirden grounded.

TD showed the skills that made him P.G.P.’s first Franchise Champion by bringing his “A” game, putting Dirden in a tough spot on several occasions. In the end the size and power of the 6’10” bearded wild man proved too much for TD and “Dirdey” scored a pin off a huge driving choke slam, moving him on to the championship main event. The main event was then set, Ruff Crossing versus Jake Dirden for the P.G.P. Franchise Championship. This match had no time limit or disqualification, a winner must be decided. This stipulation resulted in Dirden calling Crossing out to the floor to start the match, this was a wild street fight from the opening bell. Spilling in and through the crowd from the get go, Crossing versus Dirden was and absolute old school classic that seemed to culminate in “Dirdey” Alabama slamming Ruff through an extremely stiff table. Somehow Crossing managed to kick out on the 2 and continue the match. Unable to get the 3 count Dirden appeared shocked and seemed to be taken out of his game, this allowed Crossing the opening he needed to hit Jake with a high impact lariat and score the pin. Congratulations to Ruff Crossing, new P.G.P. Franchise Champion.

Zero1 X World Champion Jonathan Gresham can fly and wrestle with the very best in the world.

P.G.P. Cutting Edge Champion”The Apex” Blake Steel changes the tide with his power advantage.

In the surprise shake up of the evening, P.G.P. Cutting Edge Champion”The Apex” Blake Steel was taken to a 20 minute time limit draw with Zero1 X World Champion Jonathan Gresham. This was the proverbial wrestling clinic. Both men executed solid game plans, but neither could gain a submission or 3 count before the time limit expired. With the crowd wanting 5 more minutes, Gresham and Steel seemed ready to make that happen. Before the referee could call for a restart, Mario Andrew Crivello interrupted the proceedings and cashed in the Cutting Edge Golden Ticket he had won earlier in the evening. This forced Blake Steel into a second title defense against a rested and ready Crivello. After kicking out of several early pin attempts, “The Apex” began to get the best of Mario and seemed on the verge of winning, but a distracted ref left an opening for Crivello’s manager “Mouth of the Midwest” J.P. To throw powder in Steel’s eyes.

Scott Keyes vs Matt Cage

Scott Keyes was impressive in his debut last month at CUTTING EDGE. However, he came up just short of winning. The New Midwest Wrestling Office took note of the crowd’s immediate acceptance and decided to give Keyes another opportunity. Matt Cage is a traveled Midwest wrestling star, who has always wanted a crack at New Midwest Wrestling. It’s put up or shut up time for these two new faces in New Midwest!
