Shake Up at Dynamo Pro Wrestling in Wood River, Illinois Mike Outlaw, Shorty Biggs

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 3, 2016

“The Cowboy” Ric Maverick vs. “The Incredible Primal Prodigy” Matt Kenway (Look At Him): This was a rematch from the previous Glen Carbon show where Maverick scored the victory over his rookie opponent. I will stop hammering that lame running gag about Kenway into the ground…eventually.

DPWAAUGLL-88

DPWAAUGLL-96

DPWAAUGLL-100

Despite Kenway usually being the rulebreaker in shows around here, this seemed to be a battle of fan favorites as it played out (though a few people still booed Kenway). Kenway cut off Maverick’s rally with a Union Jack-style cobra clutch neckbreaker, then got the surprise tapout win with an Anaconda Vise in 5:09.

C.J. Shine vs. The Snitch: Sophie Darling was absent from Snitch’s corner, leaving the masked man to silently protest about the abundance of fans attempting to take pictures with their phones. Snitch cheated to win their previous encounter, so payback was the order of the day…however, Snitch hid in the audience during C.J.’s entrance to attack him from behind. Shine is gaining popularity, which is a good sign…it’s just a matter of how well he does against more established opposition.

DPWAAUGLL-121

DPWAAUGLL-131

DPWAAUGLL-140

Shine went to the top rope to finish, but Snitch pushed the referee into the ropes to knock him off balance…causing him to land rather painfully on the top turnbuckle. Snitch capitalized by covering with feet on the ropes for the tainted pin in 9:01…aww. Shine got some post-match retribution with a top-rope missile dropkick(not enough headroom in the venue for a springboard move).

Rocket Mapache vs. Orange Lazarus: O.L. is a new masked character…he seemed oddly familiar but I can’t quite place it. I felt like I’d seen this match at some point in a past life…not sure why that was the case.

DPWAAUGLL-164

DPWAAUGLL-175

DPWAAUGLL-179

At a few points during the match, Lazarus was left motionless on the mat only to do an Undertaker-style “Zombie Sit-Up” as if rising from the dead. This freaked out Dynamo’s resident raccoon, but he managed to rebound and win after a Codebreaker followed by a flying boot in 6:42.

Makaze vs. “The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher: This feud has progressed over the past several months…Sadie Blaze returned to Dynamo and took exception to his former protege’s tactics, especially as it related to the masked competitors. That led to Sadie taking matters into his own hands and bringing his very close personal long-time friend Makaze into the battle. Gallagher won their first outing after a low blow, but he wasn’t quite as sneaky in the rematch and got disqualified for the same nefarious tactic. I’m still getting used to Makaze being FAR more vocal than he had ever been in the past…previously he had remained silent and let managers or tag team partners do his talking.

DPWAAUGLL-201

DPWAAUGLL-218

DPWAAUGLL-215

Makaze even encouraged the fans to chant “Brandon” to antagonize the one who had previously gone by that name. The Wind Of Destruction had pulled his own share of dirty tricks in the past so he knew exactly how to counteract them…the chessgame went in the favor of “age and treachery” in this case. Makaze was able to stun Gallagher with a mulekick to the Universal Weak Point out of the referee’s line of sight, scoring the pinfall in 16:43(!).

After the match, Makaze said that he hoped Gallagher had learned a lesson…he didn’t believe in using such tactics, but this was an exception as he was fighting fire with fire. Gallagher remained stubborn and challenged Makaze to one more match to settle things, but he wanted Makaze’s mask to be on the line. Makaze was fine with those terms…as long as Gallagher put his hair on the line as well. That grudge match has been set for Saturday, September 17th in Glen Carbon…mark your calendars, as they say.

Intermission~! I shouldn’t have settled for ramen noodles for my homebound dinner as I indulged a bit on this night. Your Official Ben Simon Concession Count(tm)(Part One), as he was ring-announcing for Pro Wrestling Resurgence: Bag of barbecue potato chips, one Pepsi, and a Hershey bar.

Tag Team Champion Jon Webb vs. MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa, non-title: Espy had a whirlwind night ahead of him as he was scheduled to wrestle on all three area events (and did so). The MWR Missouri Title was not at stake as the match was on the Illinois side of the river; normally the belt doesn’t even make an appearance in that situation, but Espy wore it to the ring anyway. Webb is set for a big match at World League Wrestling next week as he battles Jayden Fenix in a no-DQ match to determine the first WLW Jr. Heavyweight Champion; he was the fan favorite here despite being in the rulebreaker role with tag partner Jack Gamble at NatsuCon.

DPWAAUGLL-282

DPWAAUGLL-279

DPWAAUGLL-288

DPWAAUGLL-333

DPWAAUGLL-321

DPWAAUGLL-322

They had a really good competitive bout that could have easily gone either way…Webb hit the Sliced Bread #2, but the time limit expired at 15:00 for the draw. Espinosa was notably respectful to his opponent afterwards, saying he would love to do Five More Minutes(tm) but he had a full night ahead of him elsewhere…he’d be cool with a rematch down the line, perhaps even in Missouri so he can put his belt at stake. Cue handshake with no shenanigans.

Outtkast vs. “The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs for the D-1 Title: Outtkast’s challenger was determined by a random draw and turned out to be his longtime tag team partner in The Bumrush Brothers, creating this first-time matchup between the two. The team formed back in the days of Gateway Championship Wrestling and won the GCW Tag Team Titles in November of 2006, defeating the team now known as The Submission Squad (Evan Gelistico(Petrie) and Pierre Abernathy). As you might expect, the two know each other very well and this wasn’t the brawl you would normally expect out of the individual competitors…both are extremely underrated on the technical side and they got to show that in this bout. I really enjoyed this bout as someone who is familiar with their extensive history…they both turned up their aggression but not to the point of outright heelishness against a longtime friend.
DPWAAUGLL-371

DPWAAUGLL-385

DPWAAUGLL-399

DPWAAUGLL-409

DPWAAUGLL-405

Outtkast couldn’t use his power-based moves against Shorty so he had to go to his aerial arsenal, landing his corkscrew senton off the top rope for a close near-fall. However, Outtkast went to the well once too often and missed the move on the second attempt; Shorty capitalized with a Paydirt and then a fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver, picking up the decisive win in 16:05 to capture the D-1 Championship! It was Shorty’s first singles championship since he won the Lethal Wrestling Alliance Heavyweight Title in 2007, something that Shorty made mention of…he said Outtkast could have a rematch anytime he wanted one, so it looks like that’ll be a go for September 17th.

DPWAAUGLL-419

“Dirdey” Jake Dirden vs. Mike Outlaw for the Heavyweight Title: When Outlaw upset Ricky Cruz for the Heavyweight Title in December of 2014, he faced a lot of tough opponents; none was tougher than Dirden, who won the championship under controversial circumstances in May of 2015. In the year-plus since that time, Outlaw had to deal with a lot of obstacles in his quest to regain the championship…all of that finally culminated in this one-on-one bout with no Mark Bland, no Travis Cook, and no Black Hand Warriors to interfere.

DPWAAUGLL-436

Dirden had the advantage when the match turned into a brawl on the floor, throwing Outlaw over several rows of chairs and nearly winning by countout. As the battle continued, the referee was knocked down, leading to a visual pinfall for Dirden after a chokeslam. Dirden brought in a chair, but that backfired as Outlaw dropkicked it back into his face. Outlaw delivered the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) and the referee recovered to count…two. Dirden fired back with a big boot but took out the ref AGAIN by mistake. Outlaw springboarded off the second rope for a flying European uppercut, but Dirden was able to get a hold of the chair and bash Outlaw with it. Dirden covered and a second referee ran in to count…two.

Dirden wedged the chair between the turnbuckles as the second referee assisted the first to the backstage area…but Outlaw reversed Dirden into the chair, then used the chair to his own advantage by beating down Dirden with it.

DPWAAUGLL-464

DPWAAUGLL-457

DPWAAUGLL-475

DPWAAUGLL-476

DPWAAUGLL-494

DPWAAUGLL-496

DPWAAUGLL-522

Outlaw delivered the Mafia Kick as the second referee re-entered the ring and covered…for two. Outlaw wasted no time in keeping up the pressure, dropping Dirden with a second Mafia Kick and then going to the top rope for a second High Noon. Three counts later, we had a NEWWWWW Heavyweight Champion!

DPWAAUGLL-545

Outlaw was ecstatic over finally reclaiming the gold…he said Dirden had ducked him for over a year, but he wouldn’t do the same and offered Dirden a rematch whenever he wanted it. After some hesitation, the two shook hands to seal that deal.

New MWR Missouri Champion Brandon Espinosa, Big Night for High Level Enterprise

The show started with Brian Kelley presenting the 2015 Missouri Wrestling Revival Tag Team Of The Year plaques with sponsor Jack Tierney to High Level Enterprise(Jack Gamble & Jon Webb). The ceremony was interrupted by The Professionals(Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby), who used underhanded tactics to beat HLE for the Tag Team Titles at the April show…they said the awards were nice but the title belts were even better. Of course, it would be a real downer for HLE to win those awards and then fall short in their return match for the belts…but we’ll get to that later.

Rocket Mapache vs. C.J. Shine: Shine faced fan favorites in both of his matches on Saturday…I don’t know if that means he’s being positioned as an eventual rulebreaker, but time will tell how the fans react to his character. It was a quick competitive matchup, ending with Rocket avoiding a kick and getting the rollup pin in 4:00.

“The Valedictorian” Keon Option & Justin D’Air vs. Billy McNeil & Jayson Khaos(w/ C.J. McManus): The fan support was divided in this one as Option & D’Air are popular, but so is Billy McNeil. The story of the match was the dissension between the Midnight Society members as Khaos and McManus wanted to break the rules and McNeil did not. The tension turned into a full-blown argument by the end of the match as they could have gotten the win over D’Air but lost focus. Option took the opportunity to jump in the ring and blitz Khaos with a series of moves, ending in an axe kick that led to D’Air scoring the three-count in 13:00. The Society totally fell apart after the bell as McNeil shoved C.J. to the mat and picked up a chair on his way out of the ring…but the sides parted ways without further incident.

Outtkast vs. Kiyoshi Shizuka(w/ Lucy Mendez) for the D-1 Title: Shizuka traded wins with Outtkast’s tag team partner Shorty Biggs in recent months. While Lucy has her share of…admirers, I’ll say…she does really well in her role as a rulebreaking manager. I’ve commented a lot on my desire for more women’s wrestling in this area; hopefully the wheels are in motion for that to happen soon. I don’t know much about the masked newcomer Shizuka, but he’s had solid matches in his handful of in-ring appearances.

Lucy was nearly a factor in the outcome as she caused a distraction, allowing Shizuka to hit Outtkast with his Japanese flag pole behind the referee’s back. He followed up with a Perfectplex, but Outtkast barely kicked out before the three-count. The masked challenger set up to finish with a brainbuster, but Outtkast small-packaged him for the flash pin in 12:21 to retain his title.

Makaze vs. “The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher: Sadie Blaze made a surprise return to Dynamo Pro a few months ago and immediately had issues with his former student Gallagher over his underhanded tactics. He especially took issue with Gallagher’s disrespect toward masked wrestlers like Rocket, which is understandable given his masked alter-ego Makaze. Gallagher stole Rocket’s mask on one occasion and kept trying to swipe it again after Rocket reclaimed it; that finally drove Blaze to take matters into his own hands and bring “Makaze” back into action. Makaze’s one of the only guys from the first independent show I attended(in the spring of 2000) who’s still working today. The match itself was solid as a first chapter in the series…a near-ref bump allowed Gallagher to deliver a punt to the Universal Weak Point, then roll him up in a modified Oklahoma roll for the cheap pin in 8:40. I somehow suspect that this issue is not quite over, regardless of Gallagher’s sentiment on the matter.

“The Millenial” Danny Adams vs. “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga(w/ Lucy Mendez): Good heel wrestlers can take some time to appreciate and I feel like I’ve turned that corner with regards to Aliaga; he’s very underrated. Adams has proven his versatility in recent months as I’ve seen him work in both the fan favorite and rulebreaking roles. They had a really good matchup and Lucy got involved on more than one occasion…that led to Elvis rolling him up for the pin with feet on the ropes in 11:04.

Mike Outlaw vs. “The Yoga Monster” Mike Sydal: These two nearly crossed paths a while back as Outlaw and Justin D’Air had been scheduled to face Mike and his brother Matt, but Matt’s travel issues ixnayed that potential bout. This was a battle of fan favorites and a good one; I’ll never quite understand why Ring Of Honor didn’t do more with Sydal. I joked that my money was on Mike to win this match and at least one fan tried to start a “Let’s Go Mike” chant…MARKET CONFUSION~! Sydal made the fatal mistake of dropping his yoga mat and going out to retrieve it for the sake of his Yogasault…Outlaw had enough time to roll out of the way of the move, then finished with the Mafia Kick in 12:23. Nicely done.

Post-match, Outlaw acknowledged Dirden’s absence and said he hadn’t had a fair rematch for the title since losing it in May of the previous year. He said that he wanted his title shot…and if Dirden wouldn’t give it to him, then he would stay on his trail until he got it. Glad to see he’s getting back into the title hunt…woo.

The Professionals(Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby) vs. High Level Enterprise(Jack Gamble & Jon Webb) for the Tag Team Titles: As noted, Santel & McDarby had captured the belts under dubious circumstances in April; this was the rematch. I think these teams are good foils for each other and I hope the series will continue after this point. Option & D’Air watched the match from ringside and seem to be positioned as future challengers. There’s also the possibility of the Black Hand Warriors re-entering the championship picture, not to mention the Midnight Society in whatever form it may take. The finish saw HLE isolate McDarby; Gamble picked up McDarby on his shoulders and held him for a superkick from Webb, then delivered a fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver for the winning fall in 13:12…Gamble & Webb are now two-time Dynamo Pro Tag Team Champions! Option & D’Air made a point to hand the belts to the new champions…just like that, the hunters are once again the hunted.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz vs. Brandon Espinosa for the MWR Missouri Title: The history between these two runs deep over the past few years, including a brief reign as Dynamo Tag Champs. While it’s a source of bitterness for Espinosa that he had to start at the bottom of this promotion and claw his way to the top, Ricky has been a two-time Heavyweight Champion as well as SICW Classic Champion. These two had an altercation at the Cinco De Mayo show that led to Cruz pinning Espy in a six-man tag. The pre-match promos set up the bout as a sportsmanlike contest between the two, though both men have been known to throw the rulebook out the window. Each guy withstood the best that the other had to offer, including Espinosa surprisingly kicking out after the Cruz Control(swinging fisherman buster). Cruz unloaded with kicks, but Espy ducked the last one and rolled him up for the shockingly clean pinfall in 15:18! Ladies and gentlemen, we have a newwwww MWR Missouri Champion!

1

Ricky was stunned but took the loss graciously at first…of course, Espinosa couldn’t just leave it alone and rubbed the loss in Cruz’s face. When he demanded that Cruz fulfill his promise to raise his arm after the match, Ricky did so…only to punctuate his action with a superkick to the mush. The new champion was laid out as the show wrapped up…

Espinosa Strikes at Dirden- Cruz III , The Professionals Upset High Level Enterprise

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 17, 2016

By Patrick Brandmeyer

Photos Brian Kelley

“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs vs. “Young & Dangerous” Evan Morris: This stemmed from Morris’ turn last weekend as he named Shorty as one of the guys who “held him back” in the days of Metro East Championship Wrestling. Morris entered with Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby by his side, so Shorty was accompanied by D-1 Champion Outtkast who ran them off…so that left the match as a one-on-one bout as it should have been.
DPWAPRIL-1

DPWAPRIL-2

DPWAPRIL-3

After a competitive matchup, referee Patrick Hook was knocked down(the start of a rough night for him) and Morris brought a chair into the ring. Shorty got the chair away from Morris, but saw the referee was recovering and threw the weapon back to Morris, pretending he had been hit with it. Morris confronted the official and protested that he hadn’t hit Shorty with the chair, but Shorty rendered the point moot by rolling up Morris for the pin in 9:59.

DPWAPRIL-4

“The Valedictorian” Keon Option, Justin D’Air, & “The Millenial” Danny Adams vs. Brandon Espinosa, “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga, & Da’Marius Jones.
DPWAPRIL-5

DPWAPRIL-6

DPWAPRIL-7

DPWAPRIL-8

 

This was a fast-paced encounter that got a lot of time; the highlight move of the match was D’Air delivering an insane senton off the top rope onto a bunch of opponents on the floor! The finish saw the referee checking on the humanity outside the ring, totally missing Espinosa delivering a low blow on D’Air. After that, the brainbuster was academic and Espy got the win in 15:26.

Rocket Mapache vs. “The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher: Gallagher had another ringside confrontation with Sadie Blaze as their ongoing issue continues; Blaze has been particularly sensitive about Gallagher’s disrespect regarding Rocket’s mask.
3

Gallagher actually stole Rocket’s mask a few months ago, but Rocket reclaimed it with help from his Bite Club partner Jackal.
DPWAPRIL-9

Rocket was motivated in this matchup, but Gallagher kept using underhanded tactics and was obsessed with trying to remove the mask. That drew the ire of Blaze in the audience and Gallagher got sidetracked by his war of words with his former mentor.

DPWAPRIL-10

 

That allowed Rocket to surprise Gallagher with a crossface chicken wing out of nowhere for the tapout in 6:28…but Gallagher attacked Rocket from behind and went for his mask again. Sadie had finally seen enough and jumped in the ring to confront Gallagher directly…he kicked him in the midsection before delivering a double-underhook suplex to send Gallagher into retreat move.

DPWAPRIL-11

Sadie got the microphone and told Gallagher that he had a friend who knew a thing or two about masks in wrestling…a “Wind Of Destruction” was coming his way. It looks like we may be seeing the return of Makaze in the near future.

DPWAPRIL-13

DPWAPRIL-14

Jackal vs. C.J. Shine: Shine danced his way through his ring entrance and got a good reaction from the fans, but he wasn’t likely to beat out the longtime favorite Jackal in the popularity department. Shine had a competitive showing, one of his best to date, but Jackal picked up the victory with a frog splash in 5:55.

Mike Outlaw vs. Brandon Aarons: This promised to be a competitive battle between two of the top-ranked wrestlers in the Midwest. While it was a battle of fan favorites, Outlaw made some uncharacteristic moves such as attempting a pinfall with a single knee on the chest. Considering his change of attitude in alternate universes, I wonder if that’ll influence his character under the Dynamo banner?
DPWAPRIL-15

DPWAPRIL-16

DPWAPRIL-17

DPWAPRIL-18

The match could have easily gone either way and Aarons appeared to have the momentum in his favor, but recent rival Kevin Lee Davidson made his way to ringside. That distracted Aarons as he ascended the turnbuckles, giving Outlaw enough time to roll out of the way of the incoming double-stomp from the top rope. Outlaw delivered the Mafia Kick and that was enough to edge out the win in 9:24…despite the outside influence on the result, the two shook hands after the match was over.

High Level Enterprise (Jack Gamble & Jon Webb) vs. The Professionals (Shawn Santel & Mauler McDarby) for the Tag Team Titles: On the heels of retiring Eric Allen at the previous week’s Wood River show, Santel & McDarby finally had their shot at the belts.
DPWAPRIL-19

DPWAPRIL-20

DPWAPRIL-21

DPWAPRIL-22

DPWAPRIL-23

They were really good foils for the flashier style employed by Gamble & Webb; I would compared them to NXT duos like Wesley Blake/Buddy Murphy and Scott Dawson/Dash Wilder in that regard. While it looked like the champs were on their way to another successful title defense, the official was knocked down…this was just NOT Patrick Hook’s night.

Santel brought the shillelagh into play and, despite a near-miscue, managed to coldcock Webb with the weapon. That brought Gamble to the rescue, but the rulebook was out the window with the referee down and out.
DPWAPRIL-24

Gamble got a hold of the weapon and hit Santel with it, but McDarby had a backup plan: Brass knuckles!
DPWAPRIL-25

DPWAPRIL-26

DPWAPRIL-27

DPWAPRIL-28

DPWAPRIL-29

He took Gamble out of the game with the knucks, then dragged the dazed Webb to his feet for a totally graituitous shot with the knuckles. 1-2-3 and we had NEWWWWW Tag Team Champions in 8:48! The titleholders took some time to gloat, then ran like the proverbial thieves in the night when Gamble & Webb gave chase…tremendous.

DPWAPRIL-31

DPWAPRIL-32

Outtkast vs. Kevin Lee Davidson for the D-1 Title: K.L.D. had been impressive and just got back from a successful tour of Europe. He’s held titles in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance and is the current Heavyweight Champion of Wrestling Invades America. Outtkast had to go aerial a bit more than usual due to the size difference, including his corkscrew moonsault dive from the top rope to the floor. He had trouble hitting his signature moves, though he did manage to deliver the Lost Cause (fireman’s-carry spinebuster) for a near-fall. K.L.D. nearly won a few times, but his second attempt at a corner cannonball missed the mark and Outtkast rolled him up for the pin in 9:24.

DPWAPRIL-30

I’m sure there will be another day for the big man…

DPWAPRIL-33

DPWAPRIL-34

“Dirdey” Jake Dirden vs. “The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz for the Dynamo Pro and MWR Missouri Heavyweight Title. This didn’t take long to get out of hand as they fought out of the ring and brawled all over the building…Dirden rammed Ricky’s head into the wall and left a hole! They fought toward the merchandise tables and Cruz threw Dirden over the main table…thankfully they more or less spared the MWR table and my fries and soda.

DPWAPRIL-35

DPWAPRIL-36

DPWAPRIL-37

DPWAPRIL-38

They eventually made it back to the ring as the referee allowed some leeway, but Brandon Espinosa decided to get a closer look at the action…and both title belts at ringside. The fight spilled out of the ring AGAIN, leading to Cruz decking Espy when Dirden moved out of the way. The fight continued and both guys traded signature moves…Cruz hit the Cruz Control(swinging fisherman buster), but Espy pulled the ref out of the ring.

DPWAPRIL-39

 

The ref called it a DQ win for Cruz in 13:36…but things were far from over between these three. Dirden gloated that Cruz would NEVER get another shot at his title…and Espy added injury to insult by attacking Ricky from behind with a chair.

DPWAPRIL-40

DPWAPRIL-41

After all of that,Cruz declared that if Dirden wouldn’t give him a title shot, he may just have to make sure Dirden doesn’t hold the title for much longer.

Lifetime Achievement Awards Presented, New Champions Crowned by Patrick Brandmeyer

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 26, 2016

 photo 28_zpsf3iywc6o.jpg

History was set to be made at the Stratford Inn in Fenton, Missouri as Dynamo Pro Wrestling introduced a new championship…but history was made in other ways as well.

The show began with a presentation by Missouri Wrestling Revival as co-promoters “Evil” Jim Yount & Crystal Yount received the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2015. Ben Simon represented MWR as Brian Kelley took pictures at ringside; on top of that, Brian Stull was a special guest at the show as he had known Jim & Crystal since their days with Midwest Renegade Wrestling and Gateway Championship Wrestling. “Stully” had been a big proponent of independent wrestling in the Midwest through “The Stranglehold” radio show; he was there to join in the presentation of the award and also to ring-announce for the crowning of the first Dynamo Pro Wrestling D-1 Champion.

 photo 29_zpsgkzwpbuj.jpg

Jim & Crystal have been a part of the local wrestling scene for close to two decades and have played a big part in influencing many of the wrestlers that have competed in this area. They thanked the wrestlers and fans for their support, as well as former associate Sadie Blaze who was in attendance for the event.

High Level Enterprise had been on a roll as Tag Team Champions, but Jack Gamble & Jon Webb faced a tough test in the form of Alpha Class. Danny Adams & Paco Gonzalez had trained together under former Ring Of Honor Heavyweight Champion Michael Elgin and had formed an effective tag team combination, presenting a stiff challenge to the titleholders.

 photo 26 2_zpsug0fo9zi.jpg

 photo 0_zps9hplmsok.jpg

 photo 27_zpsxcajeqci.jpg

After a hard-fought battle, Gamble got the pin on Paco after Webb delivered a Spanish Fly off the top turnbuckle!

Billy McNeil has been resistant to the influence of his new manager C.J. McManus (as well as C.J.’s newest recruit Jayson Khaos), but he has indirectly benefited from their involvement in his matches. This was a big factor in his battle with Brandon Aarons, leaving the fans seriously conflicted about their support of the long-time St. Louis favorite. In particular, C.J. criticized McNeil’s continued wearing of his unicorn mask. Aarons delivered an impressive electric chair German suplex but McManus distracted the referee so his man wouldn’t be counted down.
 photo 25 2_zps1qwgrlpe.jpg

McNeil confronted his manager, leading to Khaos delivering an unseen cheapshot on Aarons…Billy was seemingly unaware of the involvement, but small-packaged Aarons for the quick pin. After the match, McNeil found out about what happened and apologized to Aarons, leading to a handshake between the two competitors.

 photo 24_zpseqjieoyl.jpg

(P.S. I am contractually obligated to note that Aarons’ hair was on point as usual.)

“The Alternative” Ozzie Gallagher was intent on making a statement, not only to the fans but to his former associate Sadie Blaze. He had his opportunity in a match with Rocket Mapache, bringing an aggressive attitude that didn’t sit well with Sadie. Gallagher wasn’t focused on winning the match but on unmasking his adversary…while Rocket fought him off for a time, Gallagher finally removed the hood and mercilessly assaulted his foe.
 photo 21 2_zpsoq5h7jar.jpg

 photo 22_zps5m7daefy.jpg

Rocket abandoned self-defense to keep his face covered, forcing the referee to stop the match and award the bout to Gallagher. Gallagher flaunted his “trophy” after the bell, particularly rubbing it in the face of Sadie Blaze as he walked past his seat.

“Young & Dangerous” Evan Morris had defeated Jayson Khaos to qualify for the D-1 Title tournament, so Khaos was on the hunt for payback with manager C.J. McManus and stablemate Billy McNeil in his corner. However, McNeil was still at odds with his allies due to their actions earlier in the evening…he refused to take any cheapshots at Morris despite plenty of encouragement and opportunity to do so.
 photo 23 2_zpslnkbturp.jpg

Morris escaped an Unprettier attempt and delivered a TKO onto the knee, scoring his second win in a row over Khaos; McManus attempted to jump in the ring to break up the pin attempt, but Billy pulled him back to the floor.

“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs had defeated Lucy Mendez‘s newest protege Kiyoshi Shizuka at a recent event, but the masked man was looking to even the score due to Shorty’s continued interest in Lucy.
 photo 20_zpszitdr8by.jpg

The former Tag Team Champion was on the verge of a victory, but Lucy threw herself between the combatants to shield her man from the finishing shot. That allowed Shizuka to poke Shorty in the eye and DDT him for the cheap win…to add insult to injury, Shizuka held a dazed Shorty for a slap to the face from Lucy.

Dynamo crowned its first D-1 Champion as Outtkast, “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga(w/ Lucy Mendez), and Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors locked up in a triple threat matchup. Brian Stull did the ring announcing for the occasion as all three men were looking for their first singles gold in Dynamo Pro Wrestling. Outtkast and Fenix had been Dynamo Tag Champs, but Aliaga had never held a championship in Dynamo despite holding gold elsewhere. Outtkast was looking for his first singles title since his reign as GCW Light Heavyweight Champion in 2002.

Aliaga and Fenix formed a temporary alliance to wear down Outtkast, but that broke down as only one man could walk away with the belt. All three men had some close calls, but Aliaga was taken out of the picture long enough for Outtkast to finish off Fenix with the Case Study. Outtkast was presented the D-1 Title belt by Brian Stull and his tag team partner Shorty Biggs congratulated him on his milestone victory!

In a true David-vs.-Goliath battle, “The Yoga Monster” Mike Sydal took on the powerhouse newcomer Kevin Lee Davidson.

K.L.D. has been making waves in the Midwest and across the country as he has been training with Michael Elgin as well.

However, agility and experience won the day as Sydal turned the tide with some well-placed kicks. In the end, the Yogasault sealed the deal as Sydal picked up the three-count.

“Miss Natural” Heather Patera hadn’t been seen in Dynamo Pro in a while, but she was in the unusual position of being the fan favorite in a match against Lucy Mendez.
 photo 7 2_zps5oi407sj.jpg

The two are no strangers to each other as they’ve battled all over the Midwest. In this case, Kiyoshi Shizuka made the difference as he pushed Miss Natural off the top rope behind the referee’s back; that allowed Lucy to capitalize with a jumping DDT to get the duke.

Shorty Biggs ran off the masked man afterwards, but the damage had been done.

The Heavyweight Title situation was in a state of turmoil. Defending champion Ricky Cruz and former champion Jake Dirden had been embroiled in a war in recent months, but Brandon Espinosa had earned the number-one contender’s spot in January. Espy had defeated former titleholder Mike Outlaw to ascend to that ranking, but Outlaw scored a pinfall over Dirden in an impromptu tag match later in the evening…setting the stage for a four-corner match for the championship.

Dirden loudly voiced his dissatisfaction with the match stipulation, saying that the title should be decided in one-on-one matchups and refusing to participate in the contest.
 photo 5 2_zpsaytsjscz.jpg

He stormed out the side door of the venue, leaving the remaining three competitors to battle it out. Espinosa was on the defensive against two fan favorites, but managed to catch the champion in his cross-armbreaker finisher.

 photo 4 2_zpsiosvqyua.jpg

Outlaw broke up the hold with the High Noon elbowdrop off the top rope, leaving all three men down. The King Of Chaos attempted to go to the top turnbuckle himself, but Espy took advantage of the no-DQ environment by knocking Cruz to the floor with a chair.

 photo 3 2_zpssm93x6a8.jpg

Espinosa delivered a frog splash on Outlaw, but Dirden chose that moment to re-enter the fray and break up Espy’s pin attempt!

Dirden threw Espy to the floor and attempted to pin Outlaw, but Outlaw kicked out at two. That only seemed to infuriate the “Intelligent Monster” as he pulled Outlaw to his feet, then dropped him back to the mat with a monstrous chokeslam! That was finally enough to put Outlaw down for the count…making Jake Dirden the three-time Dynamo Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion with Michael Magnuson and Jayden Fenix celebrating by his side!

10 Questions with Pro Wrestling Championship Series Promoter Greg Jovi

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 9, 2015

MWR owner and Editor Brian Kelley : Greg, I would like to thank you for joining us today at Missouri Wrestling Revival. We have covered you causing havoc as a manager at St. Louis Anarchy and Dynamo Pro in the past. Recently, you opened up a new promotion based out of Granite City, Illinois PWCS that has a unique set up based on team competition with several of the top stars around the country. I know that you are very busy preparing for the huge event this weekend for PWCS, so once again thank you for taking the time to speak with us.

PWCS logo

Greg: Thank you for having me for this piece. Always appreciate the opportunity to get the word out and promote my brand.

1) You obviously are very passionate for pro wrestling, who was your inspiration to work towards being a part of pro wrestling in the Midwest?

Greg: I’ve wanted to be a manager and promoter since I was about 11 years old, the first time I saw Paul Heyman on ECW. Locally, I got hooked on GCW at about 13 and wanted so badly to be apart of that. Seeing guys like Dingo, Pete Madden, and the Ego Express (KC Karrington and Steven Kennedy) made me fall in love with wrestling all over again. Before that I had no idea Indy wrestling existed, let alone right in my backyard.

2) As I had mentioned, you are now a promoter in the St. Louis area, but prior to becoming a wrestling manager you respected the sport enough to seek training to be a pro wrestler. Who were your trainers or people instrumental in helping you , and what was that experience like?

Greg: I actually went in with the mindset that I was going to be a manager. I sent a promo reel to Dynamo and they liked it enough they invited me to the gym one week. I decided my first day I was going to get in there and try to do everything the wrestlers did, and I ended up doing very well and earning respect. Dingo taught me a lot, soon he stepped aside and Davey Vega took over. Sadie Blaze all the while taught me the managing side of things.

As far as how it was, it was the time of my life. I miss those times sometimes. I was in great shape, made great friends, and really showed myself something I never knew I had. I wonder now and again if I’d be a semi competent full time wrestler by now had I not been dropped on my head and injured my neck. I was really starting to click, but I think I was meant for where I am now.

3) Your other positions included being a referee and ring announcer. What are your pet peeves that referees and ring announcers do at this level, and what memories do you have of being of those positions?

Greg: I don’t really have ring announcing pet peeves, I’ll just say good ones are hard to find. Number one ref pet peeve is the best ones always want to wrestle it seems. More power to them, that’s not a knock, but a lot of great refs simply strive for more and great refs as well are hard to find.

4) After some time you would shock the fans by becoming a force in Dynamo Pro Wrestling and St. Louis Anarchy as a manager. At Dynamo Pro Wrestling you aligned yourself with the KC Karrington’s First Church of Karrington with Steven Kennedy, Dice and Adam Raw. Today, in the land of Anarchy you lead the N.WO style of faction BOSS that includes the St. Louis Anarchy Champion Gerald James, Dan Walsh, Jordan Lacey and more joining every second it seems as chaos reigns at SLA. Who was your first wrestler that you managed, and what mistakes as a manager did you make that you have fixed since then?

Greg: I think my first “client” if you will was actually Mat Fitchett, and I was a good guy believe it or not. Eventually, I turned on him at Yuletide Terror one year and we were off to the races. As far as mistakes, I remember never knowing where to stand. I was like, “if I stand here I’m blocking their view, but if I’m here nobody sees me at all”. I was super nervous about little dumb stuff like that all the time.

Greg leads the First Church of Karrington at Dynamo Pro Wrestling.

 

5) If you had the chance to manage to anyone wrestler in the world today who would it be?

Greg: First name that comes to mind is Kyle O’Reily. Great wrestler and great guy. I would also love to manage a female talent, that’s not a dynamic that’s really been done often. Would love to see what I could do managing somebody like Heidi Lovelace.

The St. Louis Anarchy champion Gary Jay has been unstoppable. Next month, in Alton, Illinois he will face JoJo Bravo on April 17th and if he is able to retain his title he will tested by Davey Richards the next night. This Saturday Gary and Greg represents the Ego Busters against the Resurgence Steven Kennedy in the double Main Event.

 

6) Gerald James has been the SLA Champion while defeating the likes of Takaaki Watanabe, Davey Vega, Angelus Layne and Mat Fitchett and is still one of the most underrated wrestlers in the country. His reign has been highly entertaining, what has been your highlight while leading him during this time.

Greg: There have been so many fantastic matches and moments in his lengthy reign, it’s hard to choose. I think busting up the Angelus Layne wedding has probably been my favorite. Being involved in a wedding gone wrong has got to be on every wrestlers bucket list right?

7) Last year, you came up with concept of Pro Wrestling Championship Series. Before we take a look at the upcoming 2015 season, please explain the concept to the fans for us on the team system.

Greg: Certainly. The concept is pretty heavily rooted in how college and high school wrestling works. We have four teams. Each event, the wrestlers from a team compete against the wrestlers from another. Their individual wins and losses go towards their team’s overall record. At the end of the season, the two teams with the best record face off in a four on four elimination match to crown that season’s champion. It’s pro wrestling as a team sport.

8) I know from experience that becoming a wrestling promoter is an uphill battle as in today’s environment. There are so Many entertainment choices for the fans to choose. From your experience what has been the recipe for success for you and partner Jason Coellner at PWCS?

Greg: Providing a quality product that is different from the rest has worked great for us. We advertised that we would be new and innovative, and I don’t think anyone has left a PWCS event saying, “Well that’s the same show I saw at ____”. We truly do offer a fun, alternative brand with substance in the ring.

9) This coming weekend PWCS returns to action. I understand that you have DVDs of the first season. Are they all done and ready for the fans to purchase and if so how much?

 photo pwcs q_zpsozdffg4m.jpg

The DVDs are $10 ($15 for the Championship show , as it will be a 2 disc set)

 photo pwcs 3_zpsyef7my5h.jpg

 photo pwcs2_zpsmaopmyfg.jpg

 

Greg: Stages 1-3 are all currently available online at pwcswrestling.storenvy.com and at live events. It will be down to the wire, but we should have all those as well as the Championship Spectacular featuring Colt Cabana and Jimmy Jacobs at this Saturday nights event. Jason does a fantastic job on these along with our play by play man Drew Xzono Jr.

10) What should fans expect different this season at PWCS?

Greg: For starters, you’re going to get the return of one of the best wrestlers in the area this Saturday night, and if rumors are true he’s going to put the entire league on notice and on edge.

 photo 7_zpsjqtrgayb.jpg

You’re also going to see a fourth regular season event this year. It internally being called the Wildcard Stage and will provide some fun matches as all four teams will mix it up and have one last shot to secure a spot in the 2015 Championship Spectacular.

And you never know what else might happen or who might show up. Thanks Brian for having me, and thank you to anyone who has supported the league so far.

 photo pwcs s_zpsphzn6nfz.jpg

Brian:  Once again Greg, thank you for your time and we look forward to another year of exciting PWCS action. Fans, be sure to add PWCS on Facebook and Twitter at PWCSWrestling to keep up with them as well as here at Missouri Wrestling Revival.com, your #1 source of wrestling news in the Midwest.

Is “Mean” Mason Beck the BIGGEST and most feared Wrestler in the Midwest today?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 8, 2011

Photobucket

You may laugh at the fear in that kids eyes in the back but I have seen the same look ringside for some of Becks victims in the ring.



MWR fans throughout the three plus years that MWR has been in existence, there has been many who feel that wrestling’s nastiest wrestler has been “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, there is very few that would argue that the hardest working wrestling is none other than Mark Sterling but what about the biggest and most feared wrestler today?

While no wrestler in the Midwest is more loved than the Mississippi Madman, he brings to the ring a softer side during his matches. In the past the name that was mentioned for feared was “The Future” Donovan Ruddick who currently resides in WWE’S developmental system with FCW under his new moniker DT Porter.

Ruddick standing at 6”9 was a machine that the fans in ST Louis loved to see weather or not he was in a good mood or heaven forbid the man was on a war path destroying opponents on a weekly basis.

With Ruddick’s absence who do we believe is heir to his throne of the Biggest and most feared wrestler in the wrestler in the Midwest?

At the top of any list one would have to say that is “Mean” Mason Beck. Beck a powerful man in the old of Ruddick towers over the competition. What makes Beck a front runner for this title is the fact of how much speed and stamina the man possess.

We have seen recently Mason Beck bully his way around the Midwest with power moves and wrestling combined.

Beck is a former partner of Ruddick as last year the two teamed up with manager MR Late Nite to beat the Madman and his partner former WWE STAR U-Gene at Pro Wrestling Epic ; the two looked to take over the Midwest before Ruddick’s signing of WWE.

While many wrestlers in the Midwest would like to see Beck get signed and move to Florida along with Ruddick, MWR Fans we highly recommend that you get to a show near you to see Mason Beck in action soon before that happens.

Let us look at a video package of why he is MWRS pick for Biggest and most feared wrestler today

Just a few weeks ago we were in Springfield Illinois for New Midwest Wrestling where Mason Beck took on fellow rising superstar Nick Brubaker in a phenomenal match. Brubaker by no means is a push over and went toe to toe with the big man but it was breathtaking at times seeing the power of Beck being demonstrated at times during the match on Brubaker.

Yet MWR may be wrong fans who else could be the man that puts fear in the Wrestlers heart?

In alphabetical order

Alexander Rudolph

Photobucket

Young and wild is words that come to mind for this Metro Pro Wrestling and NWA Dynamo star. Rudolph has been recently been seen around the Midwest more frequent the first part of the 2011 causing alarm for many young wrestlers. Led by manager Sadie Blaze winning has not seemed to be the objective as much as hurting people.

Brian Ash

Photobucket

Ash the current 3XWrestling Champion is intimating to say the least. He brings to the ring a ring presence of power and respect. He is the main reason that Genesis has had the edge over the fan favorites at 3XWrestling

Bull Schmitt
Photobucket

Schmitt is a former WLW Champion who knows how to wrestle but would rather cause trouble and hurt people like MPW Champion Derek Stone along with good friend Trevor Murdock. While Schmitt may seem fun lovin as he heads to the ring it is his roughneck ways in the ring that has his opponents running for cover.

The Dixieland Destroyer

Photobucket

Unpredictable and dangerous is what many have to say about the DixieLand Destroyer. You never know what you will get from the masked man. At times has shown a friendly side but when the bell rings he pushes his weight around in a ferocious manner. Referees and Security’s worse nightmare you never know if he truly understands the rules of the match.

Preston Maxwell

Photobucket

Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione

Maxwell was just a name on a card in the past at Pro Wrestling Phoenix but when he targeted the Big Hurt Abu Colossus last summer in a brutal feud he put the wrestling world in notice that he would no longer be forgotten. After winning the first stage of his feud he is now the PWP Champion with Abu once again knocking on his door.

Ron Powers

Photobucket

Powers has been feared for many years and age has not slowed down this monster. It looked as if time had soften the big man as he was cheered in 2010m but after feeling slighted with the love that CWC Champion Danny Boy Hawkins was receiving he went postal. MMWA-SICW promoter Herb Simmons has had to employ extra security to contain the rage of Powers during the shows in East Carondelet. Powers would win the CWC title this past March from Danny Boy with no looks of slowing down anytime soon.

Karrington turned out to be playing possum and eliminated Shorty Biggs from the equation, then tripped up KaSt as he attempted to climb the turnbuckles. The Egos finished off KaSt with a double neckbreaker and SSK got the pinfall.

Stone appeared ready to leave the ring without accepting a handshake from the champion…at that point, Wyatt & Sterling jumped the champion! Stone, who has had issues with the Kansas City Killers in the past, decided to re-enter the ring and even the odds…leaving the champion and challenger standing tall in the ring!

-Unfortunately, the show was cut short by a power outage during intermission as a huge thunderstorm hit the area. We waited for a while to see if the lights would return or if they could light the ring another way, but they finally called it off and offered discounts for their next show in August…rest of the card was scheduled to be Adam Rich vs. Evan Gelistico, Shorty vs. Karrington, Dan Walsh vs. Kevin X, and Davey Vega & Trent Stone vs. Mark Sterling & Jeremy Wyatt.

Missouri Wrestling Revival will have exclusive comments from the Bumrush Brothers Shorty Biggs and OuTtKaSt in the near future discussing their feud with the Ego Express that has the looks to not end anytime soon.

10 Questions with the LWA Champ KC Karrington

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 18, 2009

LWA Kingpin KC Karrington

LWA Kingpin KC Karrington

 

Years Wrestling:5
Trained by: Dingo
First match: Vs. El Uno Loco, Mid America Xtreme (MAX) Wrestling
Finishing maneuver: The Cunning Stunt

Date, place and who you beat to become LWA Champ: June 20,2009 O’Fallon IL Knights of Columbus, Jeremy Wyatt

Brian Kelley:I am joined today with the current LWA Champion KC Karrington. In less than a year KC has transformed himself from one half of the top tag team in St Louis, The Ego Express with his tag team partner Steven Kennedy to reigning LWA Champion.
KC thank you for joining us today.

KC Karrington Any time, thanks for having me.

1) How did you get into the sport?

KC Karrington: I’ve got to admit, I got into the business through sheer dumb luck. More or less, being in the right place at the right time. I was attending a Gateway Championship Wrestling show, merely as a fan. During intermission, I got to talking to the woman sitting next to me, and she started telling me that her son was a year younger than I was, sixteen at the time, and that he was training at a new promotion called Mid America Xtreme in Alton, IL. I was living in Edwardsville at the time, which is about thirty minutes from Alton. My main issues that kept me from really pursuing training were my age and the fact that to train with Gateway I would have to drive to Missouri every week. Not having a job and being in school five days of the week, it really wasn’t an option. So, even though my main goal was to get to GCW, I decided that getting trained at MAX would have to do for the time being. She talked to me for a while, introduced me to the trainer, and I started attending regularly. I would say that I learned the bare basics at MAX. I wrestled under a different name, copied my idol, Ric Flair, verbatim, and really stunk up the place. On a brighter note, MAX was where I first teamed with Steven Kennedy, and we really became good friends. Long story short, the company folded, and after a lot of prodding and nudging, Kennedy got me to come to the GCW school. I basically had to be re-programmed, because I was put in the ring WAY too early at MAX. I may have learned my basics from the MAX trainer, but Dingo taught me how to be a professional wrestler.

2) In a very young age you have been able top make an impact, what have been the keys to your success?

KC Karrington: I credit the success I do have to the people that have trained me, and have helped me become confident in my wrestling. I honestly owe everything I’ve done professionally to Dingo, SSK, Sadie Blaze, Evil Jim, Shorty Biggs. They have all helped me, encouraged me, and told me when something flat out sucked. I respect everyone of them more than they’ll ever know. On a personal note, I have a younger brother and sister who are everything to me. The feeling I get when they come to the shows and I see them sitting in the crowd cheering me on……that’s what it’s all about. They are my biggest fans, and they are what keep me going.

3) Lets start out with your time with tag team partner and good friend Steven Kennedy, collectively the two of you are the Ego Express. I have to say that you are one of the most exciting and entertaining tag teams that I have seen in the MWR coverage area. How did that tag team come to be?

KC Karrington: “He’s making a peak hour call!!!”……..Sorry, kind of an inside joke. It all started at MAX. As I mentioned, I was nowhere near ready to be in the ring, and they more or less told me to go to the ring and be Ric Flair. I didn’t know how to be me when I was in the ring. Then, I was put into a faction with SSK and the rest is history. Through working with him, I really got comfortable in front of a crowd, and we just really went out and did what we wanted to do. The best part was, it was fun and it got over. After MAX went under, I really had no interest in wrestling anywhere else, because I knew that I didn’t know what I was doing. God, it seemed like at least once a week SSK would call me and say, “So, are you gonna come train at Gateway or what?”. I put it off for a while, but, as anybody that knows him can attest to, Kennedy can be very persuasive. When they really felt I was properly trained, I made my GCW debut and SSK and I tagged with each other regularly. We won the GCW Tag Team Championships together twice, and that is one of my top achievements. We were the bad guys at the time, and we just went to the ring and did as much as we possibly could to piss everybody off. The crowd hated us….but they loved to hate us. That’s why it was so easy for us to be more fan friendly. Something that The Ego Express has in it’s favor that not a lot of tag teams in the area have, is that we interact with each other the exact same way inside the ring as we do outside the ring. We play off of each other and make each other crack up constantly. Not many tag teams on the indy scene that I know of go get “wingy” and then catch a movie. I think of the guy like the big brother I never had, and I really do look up to him.

4) The Ego Express have went up with some of the top tag teams in the Midwest, if MWR were to put out a BEST OF THE EGO EXPRESS. What would some of the match listing look like?

KC Karrington: Very first match on that list would be the TLC match we had in LWA with Dingo and Davey Vega for the LWA Tag Titles. Being out there with two men that I hold in the highest regard, and absolutely tearing the house down is something that I really enjoyed. Our soap opera saga that we went through with Vega and Johnny Vinyl would be right behind that. Our two matches in NWA : Dynamo Pro with The LONR’s (Mark Sterling & Darrien Sanders) as well. I learn more wrestling with Sterling than just about anybody else that I’ve ever stepped into the ring with. When we first started in Gateway, we had some really good matches with Sean Vincent and Rebecca Raze that I enjoyed very much. Of course, working with the North Star Express was a feather in our collective cap. Those two have been all over, and are one of the best teams in the country. I feel like we were able to hang well with them. Recently, we had a match with Mark Sterling and Jeremy Wyatt that I was very proud of. Like Sterling, I feel like I grow as a wrestler everytime I get to step into the ring with Wyatt. Of course, I can’t chew for a few days, but I enjoy it for some reason.

5) I have to admit that I am a big fan of good tag team wrestling. I would love to see the Ego Express travel to 3XW to take on the tag team The Gentleman’s Club of Mark Sterling and Gage Octane or go head to head Barrio Boys Domino Rivera and Angel Medina in Kansas. Is there any tag team that you would like to test your skills against?

KC Karrington: The Bario Boys are definitely on that list. I’ve only gotten to see them a few times, but I’ve got to say that I was impressed. The Hooligans are another tag team that I have seen a few times, and I’d like to see how Kennedy and I would do against them. Plus, they seem to enjoy beating the snot out of the Submission Squad, which I am always a fan of.

6) When one talks about the history of the Ego Express and KC Karrington we can not have a conversation without talking about your former manager, as conniving as she is beautiful Tiffany LeFane. In one of the most shocking moments that I can recall she turned on you at the 2008 Circus Maximus, by throwing a fireball and taking the side of the Submission Squad. I feel that she is one of the top managers in the Midwest but one could argue that you have found more success without her in your corner. Would you say it would be fair to say that you were able to use her turn on you as motivation?

KC Karrington: Her turning on me is something that made me step up my game. After eveything that she and Vega did to me at Circus Maximus, (the blood, the fire, the betrayal), I feel like I had to evolve. But at the same time, I feel like the fans began to take me a lot more seriously. They recognized that I wasn’t the young kid that I started out as. I had grown, and I had been through a damn war and made it out alive. As far as Tiffany goes…….let’s face it, there is not a person that she has managed that hasn’t been successful. Let’s look at the list here. Ego Express : Multi-time GCW Tag Champs, LWA Tag Champs, SSK is the Medallion of Whatchimacallit (I can never remember) holder, and I currently hold the LWA Championship. Davey Vega : Medallion of Bandanas holder, somebody whom I have NEVER beaten in an LWA ring, and soon faces Dingo for the NWA Missouri State Championship. Gary the Nightowl has a shot at my LWA Championship soon. Tiffany knows what she is doing out there. As much as she has put me through, I believe she IS the top manager in the mid-west.

7) Lets turn our focus to singles action. Looking back, Jeremy Wyatt had been the Kingpin and the 2008 MWR Wrestler of the year throughout the Midwest by beating top notch talent in Tyler Black, “The Future” Donovan Ruddick, Abu Colussus, Davey Richards and Jordan Lacey. How were you able to overcome the intensity of Wyatt where so many others have failed?

KC Karrington: You know, I’ve asked myself the same question. I don’t think that I would be holding the LWA Championship without the fans on my side. The night I won the title, the thing I remember most was the reaction that the fans gave me when I stepped through the curtain. That still gives me goosebumps. When Wyatt gave me repeated forearms to the jaw, chops to the chest, and those stiff kicks he can throw, hearing the fans rallying behind me gave me that will to fight on. I would love to say that I won that belt because I am better than Wyatt, but I’m not going to say that. Jeremy Wyatt may not be a fan favorite to put it lightly, but he is probably the best in the mid-west. I respect him more than almost anybody else in the locker room.

8) On June 20th, 2009 you shocked wrestling fans by becoming the man to end Wyatt’ title reign. Your good friend Steven Kennedy came into the ring to congratulate you while the LWA locker room came ringside for a standing ovation. Explain to the fans in words what that moment was like.

KC Karrington: Accomplished. I felt like I had really proved all the doubters wrong. All the people when I first started telling me that I could never be anything because of my size…..I had always let that sit in the back of my head. I’ve been trying to prove them wrong for the last five years. Hearing the LWA fans in O’Fallon, seeing my family in the crowd, and having Kennedy, Shorty Biggs, Adam Rich, people I think of like brothers, in the ring with me to share that moment. I don’t think that that moment could have been any better.

9) One competitor who has quietly making waves is your former partner Kennedy. He is the current LWA Medallion of Brutality holder by defeating Gary J who was accompanied by Tiffany Lefane the same night that you won the LWA Title and has been impressive in the past few months including a big match Jeremy Wyatt, Brandon Espinosa & Dash Rando in a four-way no-DQ match. It may not be soon but how would you feel if Kennedy was granted a shot?

KC Karrington: You know, that’s something that’s crossed my mind quite a bit. Kennedy and I joke all the time about who is the Shawn Michaels of our tag team and who is the Marty Jannetty. Luckily, we’ve never been inside of a barber shop. Seriously, though, I would give SSK a title shot any time and any where. He is ridiculously talented, and he and I think so much alike, it would probably be as close as I could get to wrestling myself.

10) Who do you feel in the coming months present your biggest challenge for the LWA title going forward?

KC Karrington: As far as people who have yet to make that big splash, Davey Vega is somebody that everybody in the mid-west should keep their eyes on. I have known him since he first started, and he is an all around great wrestler. Personality, psychology, general ring presence….he has it all. We’ve wrestled more times than I can remember. He and I have been in some wars, and have tried to literally destroy each other. Hell, he tried to set me on fire! Personal feelings aside though, getting in the ring with him always brings out the best in me, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him come after my LWA Title in the near future. Mike Sydal is somebody that has come a long way in a short time. I’ve gotten to step into the ring with him in tag and singles matches, and he’s beyond talented. Brandon Aarons is another guy I’m very impressed with, and another guy that I have known since he first started training. Another person that takes pride in what he does, and I think he can make some major waves soon. Of course, the guys that have been in the game for a while are a threat and ready to strike. Kennedy, Dingo, Sterling. Any one of them coming after the championship would not surprise me. Unfortunately for me, they’re some of the best at what they do. I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t looking forward to it.

KC Once again thank you for your being a part of the MWR exclusive 10 questions with the Champ. Good luck on defending your title in the future.

KC Karrington: Again, thank you very much for having me on MWR, and for your constant support
