3XW – Over The Top Results 5/7/10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 12, 2010

Des Moines Social Club
1408 Locust St
Des Moines, IA

Thanks to the awesome crowd that packed the Des Moines Social Club for this excellent show!

1. 3XW Pure Wrestling champion “The Viking Warrior” Kraig Keesaman successfully defended the title over “The Right Price” Aaron Masterson after drilling him with the Nordic Spike in 8:48. Keesaman has now not been pinned or submitted in 23 months of competition.

Following the match, Hunter Matthews came out and addressed the crowd and Masterson, talking about losing to Masterson at Spring Showdown and talked about how ashamed his mother his of his actions is of late. He then proceeded to vicious assault Masterson with a brutal Piledriver. Due to the injuries Masterson sustained from the beatings at the hands of Matthews and Keesaman, he was unable to compete in the Gauntlet for the Gold later in the evening.

2. Malia Hosaka defeated Claudia Del Solis after an impressive facebuster in 11:36. Solis, an impressive newcomer to 3XW that won over the crowd, was accompanied at ringside by members of the Mid Iowa Rollers roller derby team, who have bouts on May 15th and May 22nd at Hy-Vee Hall. Visit http://www.midiowarollers.com for more details.

3. Mark Sterling beat Gage Octane by DQ in a wild match in 14:34 that saw Brian Ash and “Delicious” Devin Carter of the Gentlemen’s Club jump Sterling, only for Sterling to be saved by the Horndogs (Maddog McDowell and Krotch), which allowed Sterling to spear Octane and almost apply the Markshooter to Octane following the match. Luckily for Octane, his teammates outside the ring were able to pull him out of the hold. Sterling challenged all four members of the Gentlemen’s Club to an 8-man tag team match against Sterling, McDowell, Krotch and a partner to be announced at Downtown Destruction on June 4.

4. “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson defeated his High Flyers’ partner Mike Sydal following a Dublin Driver in a very emotional and hard fought “Loser Leaves 3XWrestling” match set up by 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman in 14:41. Following the match, both men shook hands and embraced in the ring while “American Pie” by Don McLean played over the speakers and the fans gave Sydal a standing ovation. Sydal walk around ringside after the match and shook hands with many of fans in the crowd.

5. 3XW Heavyweight champion “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt successfully defended his title over 3XW Cruiserweight champion “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell following a Cropduster DDT in a tremendous championship match in 25:34. Rockwell earned many nearfalls over the champ, leaving fans on the edge of their seats. The end of the match saw Wyatt laying on the mat and Rockwell going up to the top rope for his patented Rock On Bomb. 3XW Pure Wrestling champion Kraig Keesaman, who attacked Rockwell last month, stood at the top of the entrance ramp and distracted Rockwell while he was standing on the tunrbuckle. When Rockwell went for the move, Wyatt had recovered enough to roll out of the way before spiking Rockwell with the Cropduster DDT for the win.

6. Fifth Annual 25-Man Gauntlet for the Gold Battle Royal – Entrant No. 13 Rory Fox won the battle royal and a future 3XW Heavyweight championship match in 30:45 after eliminating Maddog McDowell and Brian Ash (entrants No. 1 and 2) last to win the match.

Tyler Cook made his return to 3XW as the final entrant (No. 25) and eliminated heavy-favorite Kraig Keesaman, who was distracted by Jimmy Rockwell on the outside of the ring.

“The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong (No. 10) was accompanied to the ring by his manager “The Laotian Liaison” Chad Mylan. Kwong put in a very impressive performance, eliminating the second-most competitors at three behind Rory Fox’s four. Every time Kwong eliminated an opponent, Mylan gleefully grabbed the microphone and proudly announced that Kwong had eliminated another opponent. Kwong’s run was finally ended when Fox threw him over the top rope, causing Mylan to go irate. The only competitors in the battle longer than Kwong were Maddog McDowell, Brian Ash and Devin Carter (No. 3). Mylan also introduced his new Mylan Management Agency (MMA). More details on the next episode of Outside the Ring.

– Fox also eliminated Gage Octane, who once again reached the final five of the Gauntlet for the Gold. Every year that Octane has competed, he’s reached the final five competitors, but he’s never won.

The Gentlemen’s Club and Sterling/Maddog McDowell/Krotch, opponents next month in the 8-man tag, targeted each other throughout the match. Ash violently eliminated Krotch, punching him in the face when Krotch tried to springboard back into the ring. Sterling eliminated Carter, last year’s winner. Brian Ash eliminated Mark Sterling as Sterling was battling with Octane.

Sexy and Smooth (Ryan Slade and A.J. Smooth) were eliminated by Jon West and Sir Bradley Charles. Sexy and Smooth have already challenged West and Charles to a tag team match on June 4 at Downtown Destruction.

– Former ring announcer KL Snow – the only ring announcer to ever lose a “Loser Leaves Town” stipulation – attempted to sneak his way into the battle royal and regain employment in 3XW, only to be quickly pushed aside upon entrance by the debuting Hamlet Azul (a masked European luchador and figure skating enthusiast) and directed backstage by 3XW officials.

– Other masked competitors included the Rebelucha (a confederate luchador), Ski Mask Malloy (martial arts master from the Ozarks), The Yellow Dog (eliminated by Ash after Ash threw Dog’s toy over the top rope and he jump over the rope to fetch it), and Disco Diablo En Fuego (a demonic dancing luchador).

– Besides the ones mentioned above, other returns and debuts included Jaysin Strife, David Clark, and Sparrow.

Upcoming appearances:
3XW will hold wrestling outside all afternoon and into the evening on Saturday, May 15th as part of the Des Moines Social Club’s annual Subjective Circus event. Lots of other entertainment as well, including live music and special events/games for the kids. Come join us to see lots of matches. http://www.desmoinessocialclub.org

3XW stars will also be appearing at the Mid Iowa Rollers bout on May 22nd at Hy-Vee Hall. http://www.midiowarollers.com

Ten reasons why you do not want to miss High Voltage Wrestling on August 15

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 10, 2009

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

Pro wrestling fans, there are many shows to attend this August, but the one you will not want to miss is High Voltage Wrestling on August 15, 2009. TNT Keny G has broken out the piggy bank to give the fans the best in Midwest pro wrestling. Keny G said it best—“HVW fans will have a buffet of wrestling action on the 15th in Granite City, IL as we are bringing out all the stars to celebrate our return,”

Keny G pulled out all the stops to provide you, the fans, with the best bang for your buck. Let’s take a look at the Top 10 reasons you do not want to miss High Voltage Wrestling.

1.The HVW Champion Donovan Ruddick will defend his HWV Heavyweight Championship against the most hyped wrestler in 2009, the HVW Livewire Champion Kahagas.

HVW Poster

Poster by EA

Kahagas has toured around the world this summer and received an invitation to participate in the IWA Ted Petty International tournament in September and will return to his home promotion to try to prove his dominance over one of the most powerful men in the Midwest.

Ruddick is powerful, standing at 6”9. Many have stated that the man is just one step away from the WWE. Managed by the The Magic Man, Ruddick looks to impose his will on the Tokyo Monster. Ruddick taking on Kahagas has been boiling for some time. The HVW Arena will be crazy when these two go at it in a FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH!!!

2.Santana G’s debut.

With a huge void in the Midwest womens wrestling scene, Santana G has been the buzz of the summer. Training at the NWA Dynamo Gym, word has it that she has been working hard to learn her craft. Beautiful and sweet, Santana G was put in the line of fire when B.A.B.E.Watch members Brandon Aarons and Brandon Espinosa jumped her dad, Keny G, in the middle of the ring at the last show. Fan favorite Juice Robinson made the save and Santana’s dad let Aarons know that at this show he was to get a female tag team partner as Santana G would be teaming up with Juice for a mixed tag team match.

Come to HVW and be able to say that you were there when Santana made her wrestling debut.

One can not forget that two of the Young guns of the sport are in this match Juice Robinson and Brandon Aarons are the future of the sport and this will be the first match between this two but one would assume that these two will meet each other many times in the future.

3.Mississippi Madman comes to HVW !!

As punishment for the beatdown of TNT Keny G, Brandon Espinosa will have to face Keny G’s hired gun, the Mississippi Madman. The Mississippi Madman is a nice guy out of the ring but when the bell rings, the big man is one bad man. I caught up with the Mississippi Madman and he had these words for Brandon Espinosa.

4.The 2008 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt.

One of the baddest men on the planet, Jeremy Wyatt will be in the house. You never know what the Rebel is up to. The most talked about guy in the MWR coverage area, Jeremy Wyatt has arguably had a better year in 2009.

5. PWE US Title Defense

Mark Sterling defeated Hunter Mathews and Krotch for the PWE US title in June. Can he survive the speed of Gary J and Rebel Lucha? Both of these superstars are coming off heartbreaking title losses at HVW with Ruddick beating Rebel Lucha and Kahagas stopping Gary J. Sterling returns to HVW with PWE gold, will he be able to walk out with it, is the question.
HVW PWE Triple

6.The semi finals to the HVW Tag team tournament.

Tag team action at its best. The Hooligans, the Bandana Mafia, Zero Gravity and Nick Brubaker will be in the house with a partner of his choice. Who will emerge as the first ever HVW Tag team Champions?

We caught up with The Hooligans and they sent a warning the teams at HVW

7.Wrestlecraps Blade Braxton
Wrestlecrap 2
Since 2000, WrestleCrap.com has been THE definitive source for all the worst of professional wrestling. Whether it be an evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum or grown men fighting over an uncooked turkey, WrestleCrap is the place to kick back and laugh at the dumbest stuff ever presented in – and outside – a wrestling ring!

Come to High Voltage Wrestling to meet Blade Braxton one of the co-authors of one of my favorite books WrestleCrap book of List. Blade works hard on the website and will be sponsoring the special appearance of The Midnight Rose in the first ever HVW Battle Royal.

8.Dingo

If you don’t like watching Dingo, then you just don’t like wrestling. Many believe that he is the most exciting wrestlers in the past few years in St Louis. Dingo’s last appearance in HVW was in a victory over Kahagas. Dingo looks to add HVW gold to his illustrious resume. That may be easier said that done. Dingo is set to match up with Tony Kozina. Kozina will be making his debut at HVW with full intentions of leap frogging Dingo to the title. Two wrestlers who can really go, this could be the match of the night.

9.Battle Royal
Who has it in them to claim the first ever HVW Battle Royal?

10. Will Mark Bland be brave enough to show.
awr

My money is on the fact that Bland is all talk and no go, but HVW has sent him and invite to show up. The feud of 2009 has been HOT all summer. It started with Absoulte Wrestling Radio’s Matt Krueger insulting “Future” Donovan Ruddick in the middle of the ring. Bland was not happy about it all and called out promoter TNT Keny G during his show. Keny would infiltrate the show and take it over when Bland was out of town. Mark Bland then viciously attacked TNT Keny G at The Fan Shop in St. Louis, leaving him bruised and battered. The two had words at Six Flags during a special AWR broadcast in June.

Bland wants a match with Ruddick and promises to knock him out. Will Mark Bland be brave enough to show, or will he take my advice and stay far far away?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 11, 2009

By MECW management
Pictures from Mike Van Hoogstraat and Brian Kelley
Pictures comments by Brian “Flair” Kelley

Mr. K made a special announcement to start the night, he was joined ringside with Brian Scrilla with a ring Bell in hand. Brian Scrilla then announced that MECW had a special Family member in attendance that night. He also announced that this MECW Family member was named the special guest Bell Keeper for the evening. Ricky Lynn was honored to be the Bell Keeper for the evening to show respect to him as was going into surgery that Monday!!!! GOOD LUCK RICKY!!!!!!!!

Brian Scrilla ask Young Ricky to please be the honorary Bell keeper to start the show Mike Van Hoogstraat

1.)”Pride of Peoria Champion” Eric Allen defeated Jad Hamilton with a corkscrew face buster. Mr. K upset with Eric Allens cheating throughout the match forced Eric Allen to fight in another match.

2.) Jordan McEntyre defeated “Pride Of Peoria Champion” Eric Allen with a school boy pin. Everyone thought that Jordan McEntyre had just become the new “Pride Of Peoria Champion” and the place erupted with cheers. Eric Allen quickly got on the mic and informed everyone that the first match he was in was to defend his “Pride Of Peoria Championship” Belt not against Jordan McEntyre!!! So Eric Allen was still the “Pride of Peoria Champion” He also stated that he would defend the belt when he said so not when Mr.K wanted him too!!!

3.) Brian Scrilla defeated 1/2 of the MECW Tag Team Champions: Huge In Japan: Jimmy Rockwell with the Heart Punch. XXXpicit Content came out to rear their ugly heads lead by Bailey Mannix before the match and not only to say what was on their mind but to make fun of the largest group of MECW Family that shows up the FUZZY HAT CLUB!!! With black fuzzy hat’s they did their job but not without being booed even more It didn’t take long for Mr.K to run them off from ring side and get the match underway but after Scrilla secured a victory XXXPLICIT CONTENTS Ricky Kwong & Ryan Slade attacked Brian Scrilla, who was quickly saved by the Bayou Outlaws!!!!

4.) Krotch defeated ½ of the MECW Tag Champs: Huge In Japan: “The Asian Sensation” Ricky Kwong with the Krotch Rocket. Krotch came out to ask the MECW Family “WHAT…..IS……SHAKE’N!!!!!” But on a more serious note to let the MECW Family know that his match last month against the MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone was his greatest match and challenge ever!! He also wanted a rematch against the MECW Independent champion but before we could get an answer he was interrupted by Huge In Japan once again. In which they told Krotch to quit his whining that no one wanted to hear him complain!! To just accept his lose and move on. Krotch quickly challenged Huge in Japan for their MECW Tag Team Championships!!!! Huge In Japan let Krotch know that he had to earn his spot, they just don’t let anyone face them for the MECW Tag Belts!!! But Mr. K quickly came to ring side and forced Ricky Kwong to face Krotch with the stipulation being that if Krotch beat Kwong then he would be able to challenge Huge In Japan next month’s MECW May 23rd show for the MECW Tag Titles!!!! But after the match Huge In Japan attacked Krotch but only to be stopped by the MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone!!!!!!

5.) “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade defeated MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone via DQ. After a whole match of cheating by Ryan Slade, who even went far as removing his wrist tape and trying to choke the life out of Gabriel Brimstone!!!! Brimstone quickly grew tired of Slades cheating and shoved the ref on the way to attack Ryan Slade and getting himself Disqualified!!! Before Ryan Slade could escape he was DDT for his troubles! Then when the Ref: Waldo tried to get Brimstone under control but was almost DDT for his troubles. Huge In Japan once again tried to attack Gabriel Brimstone but were given a double DDT. The one thing that this journalist finds odd his that Krotch didn’t make it to ring side to save Gabriel Brimstone. In fact he didn’t show up at all. But before it was all said and done Mr.K came out and told XXXplicit Content and Huge in Japan he was tired of all the interference!!! So as punishment to them XXXplicit Content’s: Huge In Japan and Ryan Slade were forced to face The Bayou Outlaws and Brian Scrilla in a 6 man tag match after intermission!!!!

6.) XXXplicit Content’s: Huge In Japan & Ryan Slade defeated The Bayou Outlaws and Brian Scrilla after “Lovely” Leon threw salt in Aaron Masterson eye’s and Ricky Kwong delivered a reverse thrust kick shades of the Great Kabuki picked up the pinfall victory. Bayou Outlaws and Scrilla seemed to have the match well in hand especially after Maddog McDowell and Brain Scrilla connected with a huge double flapjack. But XXXplicit Content stole the victory and almost escaped. Unfortunately for Ryan Slade he stayed out their too long cutting down the fans making mention that he was gonna sweep the battle royal for the Great Plaines Trophy!! Even mentioning that the first person he was going to eliminate was the overweight, ugly, and slow Brian Scrilla because after all he’s beat him once and cost him a match. While Slade wasn’t looking Brian Scrilla snuck back into the ring and leveled Ryan Slade with a clothesline and a Swinging Neck breaker, then finished him off with a heart punch!!!! Ryan Slade couldn’t leave under his own power which forced XXXplicit Content to have to carry him off!!!!

Will we see the “Canadian Sex Icon” at the battle royal?? Guess will find out what his health condition is at the May 23rd show.

7.) Mark Sterling defeated Mike Sydal with a power bomb then made him tap with a sharpshooter the match was high fling and high impact, with Sydal doing the flying and Mark Sterling doing the impacting. Sterling did everything to keep Sydal down but he couldn’t stop the high flying ability. Sydals seem to be over confidence after an earlier win from Sterling at MECW at a past show. Add in the craftiness of the ring veteran Sterling and it was all she wrote for Mike Sydal when he caught the fan favorite off the top with a power bomb and a Sharp Shooter to boot!!!!

8)Rebel Lucha defeated Eric Fantabulous in both of their MECW debuts. The wild and crazy RebeL Lucha excited the crowd with quick moves and fast strikes. Fantabulous was able to slow him down and attempted to make the mask man tapped with an arm bar. Rebel Lucha was able to get loose on way to a big win a MECW

9.) Zach Thompson defeated Dewey “Booger” Dawson, Evan Money, and Bailey Mannix in a Fatal Four Way Match for the MECW Heavyweight Championship. With the three keeping Bailey Mannix out of the match it seemed all but won with the high fling ability of Zach Thompson and Evan Money anything was possible. You couldn’t count out Dewey Dawson strength and power!!! In the end Bailey Mannix got the accidental tag and began cherry picking opponents but ended up being eliminated to the outside of the ring. Highly upset, Bailey Mannix grabbed a chair right as the ref was knocked down, then he leveled the current champ Dewey Dawson, then Zach Thompson, but before he could get Evan Money. Evan caught him with a leg lariet of his own which knocked the chair in the face of Bailey Mannix sending him to the outside. Evan then put him down with a senton dive from the top rope to the outside. Unfortunately for Mannix though is that when he struck Zach Thompson with the chair he fell on the prone body of Dewey and when the ref came to, he counted the 1,2,3!!! WINNER and the NEW MECW Heavyweight Champion: “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson.

The quality of the AAPW show in Nashville on April 25th was possibly their best since last year. Our first time in this town, they had a paid attendance of 155. Not too shabby. The crowd was HOT. Yes, it was a bit warm in the Community Center, but not that kind of hot. The card was solid top to bottom. The crowd was so happy that The Nashville Moose Lodge, who raised $1,000 from the event, asked AAPW to set aside 4 more dates for fall and winter of 2009/2010!

One of our awards committee members wrote, “The two main men behind MWR. They do a lot of work, research & writing to help promote independent wrestling across the Midwest. They also log tons of hours in driving time to personally attend shows and support various companies around the Midwest”

(On a personal note, although we appreciate the gesture from the MWR Awards committee, both Josh and I abstained from voting in this category out of respect to the rest of the hard working men and women in the Midwest pro wrestling scene. We would also like to include Kari Williams who is a wonderful writer and the true talent of the three of us.)

No match could match the emotion that flowed through the building as the fans wanted the hated Wyatt to lose the belt and didn’t want the loveable Lacey to lose his career. The controversial finish had fans throwing beer into the ring, with Wyatt retaining his title and officially retiring Jordan Lacey.

HVW ‘Construction of Corruption’ Jan. 10 arena report.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 21, 2009

By Kari Williams

With a crowd of 131 at the River’s Edge Complex in Granite City, IL, High Voltage Wrestling put on their first show of the new year on Jan. 10. Filled with surprise matches, a St. Louis wrestling legend and a bold statement from TNT Keny G regarding his cage match that night, this was one show that left fans begging for more.

Prior to the 7:30 bell time, Luke Roberts announced that a special bonus match would take place pitting Max Archer and Cory Pillman against Cabal and Michael Morbid. Archer and Pillman brought the fight to Cabal and Morbid, who made his debut in this match with his manager Alicia. Despite their best attempts, Morbid and Cabal lost the bout, and then Morbid attempted to take his rage out on his competitors. At one point, Morbid held a member of the opposing team for a chair shot delivered by Alicia, but Alicia inadvertently hit Morbid, seemingly causing him to snap.

TNT Keny G then came to ringside and stated that if the team of himself and Wicked lost the cage match that he would retire from active competition. He then brought attention to the Wrestling at the Chase legend, Larry Matysik. “Future” Donovan Ruddick felt the need to make his presence felt, as he and The Magic Man interrupted Keny G and announced Dingo as the replacement competitor for the injured Ruddick. This prompted Keny G to announce that Dingo and Ruddick will face each other at some point in the future (no pun intended).

Mark Smart then came to ringside and claimed that he wanted to wrestle Dingo. This prompted a brawl to erupt in which Smart and Dingo battled, then Kahagas and Mephisto emerged to make their respective presences felt.

In the first Livewire match of the night, “Spoiled” Steven Kennedy took on Gary Jay in a stellar performance. From their energetic entrances to the action going on in the ring, these two men delivered a high-flying bout that had fans on the edge of their seats. Hold for hold, Kennedy and Jay matched each other in skill, intensity and athleticism. Jay ended the contest with a decisive pin and then proclaimed that he and Kennedy just had the match of their lives.

Following two of the most charismatic wrestlers in the Midwest, Jessika Haze made her St. Louis area debut against New Breed Wrestling Alliance’s Serenity. The two women wrestled a fairly even match up, with neither cementing a definite advantage over the other. However, Haze was able to cover Serenity for the three count.

The Blackhearts took on Mark Sterling and “Number One” Brett Young due to the fact that Sterling’s partner, Darrien Sanders, had a broken foot. Sterling and Young began the match poking fun at the Blackhearts for wearing masks, and they put on mask of their own that Sterling provided. Soon, however, both teams began working towards the goal of securing a victory. Young and Sterling used their pound-and-ground style to combat the more unorthodox style of The Blackhearts. Regardless of not teaming together on a regular basis, Young and Sterling worked surprisingly well as a cohesive unit. Sterling got the pin after Young connected with a leg drop from the top rope.

After the intermission, “Thee” Brandon Espinosa took on Rebel Lucha, but before the two even locked up, Espinosa exclaimed, “Rebel Lucha? I thought I was wrestling Jeremy Wyatt!” Lucha and Espinosa had an impressive match with multiple pinfalls and reversals. Neither man gained enough of an advantage to cover the other for the full three count. With three minutes remaining, Espinosa and Lucha each stepped up their game, but the match ended in a time-limit draw as Espinosa’s tag team partner, Brandon Aarons, ran to the ring from the crowd and attacked Lucha.

Reigning Six-Man Cup Champions Aaron Matthews, Cecil Cerveza and stand-in member Jeff Harris defended the cup against The Bandana Mafia of Evan Gelistico, Pierre Abernathy and Davey Vega. With the fans solely behind the ‘Mafia, they had the advantage before the first move was made. Matthews, Cerveza and Harris beat down on Vega the majority of the match up with Cerveza and Matthews both taking risks and flying from the top turnbuckle. After a lenghty battle, Vega finally made the tag to Gelistico who tore the competition apart. After a double-team by Gelistico and Abernathy, Gelistico won the match for the ‘Mafia.

Aaron Matthews goes for some exciting high flying move on Evan Gelistico.

A match of the year contender took place next when Kahagas and Dingo went at it. These two tremendous athletes battled both in and out of the ring, with neither giving an inch. With Ruddick and Magic Man at ringside, Dingo had all the protection in the world. Despite Kahagas’ determination matching Dingo’s, the extra presences surrounding the ring more than likely led to his defeat. Ironically, Dingo seemed enraged after the bout and stormed around the building throwing chairs into the ring, and he even went so far as to carry a trashcan to the ring and dump it out. Still filled with fury, Dingo made his way through the crowd to the concessions, launched a roll of paper towels at Kahagas and yelled, “Clean up your act!”

Dingo and Kahagas thrilled HVW fans in what could be a match of the year candidate

I saw the full extent of the SurroundsLandscaping.com and was very impressed by how high the standards were compared to other businesses in the industry
