Santana Garrett continues to be RED hot in the world of pro wrestling. In her young career she has been featured in many of the top wrestling promotions in the country including WWE: NXT, TNA PPV’S, SHIMMER and SHINE. Fans have been thrilled to see Santana G grace the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and with her being featured as the cover girl for the Ring Sirens December issue the magazine has been selling like crazy.

With the popularity and beauty of Santana Garrett, it can be easily forgotten that she is a women that is very focused on being the top female wrestler in the world today. She possess all three qualities that every wrestler would like to have, talent, charisma and the looks. That has led to success in single victories and tag team championships at WOW with partner Amber O’Neal.

Yet, her biggest test is set to come as she is seeking to capture a title that she has yearned to have for years, the NWA Women’s World Championship currently held by the talented Barbi Hayden. If Santana G is to accomplish her goal to be the NWA Women’s Champion, she will have earned it as Hayden is as good as they come. Hayden has been a fighting champion ever since defeating Kacee Carlisle at NWA Houston and has a victory against Santana Garrett early on, but Santana Garrett has shown that she is able to recover from a loss and return even better.

The NWA is on the upswing with a NWA President Bruce Tharpe regaining a presence in Japan and classic matches that include the likes of SATOSHI KOJIMA defeating the “IRONMAN” Rob Conway for the NWA World title, and quite possibly the most talented group of wrestlers in the NWA top 10 in years.

Many believe that Santana Garrett is the future of the sport, but she can only be as good as her opponents and the feuds that she has. Flair had Steamboat, Hogan had Andre and Stone Cold had Vince…….Is it only fitting that Garrett has Hayden…. .

Could 2014 be the year for Women’s wrestling in the NWA? If Santana Garrett has anything to say about it, it will.

Look for NWA World Champion Barbi Hayden vs. Santana Garrett to heat up this spring near a ring near you.

MISS NATURAL and MELANIE CRUISE & MISS NATURAL ADDED to SHIMMER 54-57 April 13th & 14th

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 5, 2013

The 2012 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Miss Natural

SHIMMER – WOMEN ATHLETES is proud announce the addition ofMELANIE CRUISEandMISS NATURALto the SHIMMER 54-57 tapings on April 13th & 14th at the Berwyn Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL.

Veteran competitor Miss Natural returned to the SHIMMER roster during late 2012, following an initial stint in 2008. Shortly after those first SHIMMER appearances, Natural took a hiatus from the sport, but has since returned to a full schedule, regularly competing in rings throughout the central United States. With the benefit of learning under both Ken Patera and Harley Race, Natural is a no nonsense athlete with all the tools to get the job done in the ring. She proved as much during our last set of tapings, scoring three victories against opponents much newer to the game than she, utilizing her Natural Disaster (bridging fisherman’s neckbreaker) to put them down for the three count. Next weekend in Berwyn, Natural looks to continue that momentum.

Melanie Cruise

Melanie Cruise is one of the few Chicago natives on the SHIMMER roster, and has been a part of our events in Berwyn since very early in her professional wrestling career. Over the years, Melanie has certainly grown as an athlete before the eyes of the SHIMMER fans. She had the valuable experience of receiving instruction from “The Croatian Panther” Wesna Busic for a brief period of time, as Wesna helped Melanie fine tune her game, to make best use of the size advantage which she enjoys against virtually all of her opponents. Cruise later went on to team with Mena Libra as an intimidating tag team force, before returning to the singles ranks once again at our last set of tapings. One of Cruise’s most impressive outings thus far was her SHIMMER 50 match against Hiroyo Matsumoto. It was that match which opened a lot of people’s eyes around the world to the even further heights which Melanie Cruise could take her career during the years to come.

SHIMMER Women Athletes returns to the Berwyn Eagles Club (6309 26th Street) in Berwyn, IL on Saturday & Sunday, April 13th & 14th, 2013. Volumes 54-57 of the SHIMMER series will be filmed during the course of that weekend.

Tickets for the April 13th & 14th events are now on sale. Front row reserved seating is already SOLD OUT for the entire weekend. General admission tickets are priced at $30 per full day of taping, and can be purchased using the PayPal buttons at the link below.

Your Souls tormentor returns to the Missouri Wrestling Revival trading card series with card #62. Fans that loved her first card is about to be blown away as artist Raven Johnson  features the queen of the green mist in an exciting photo worthy of the top women wrestler in the world today.

MsChif is one of the most respected females to ever enter the ring, capturing titles and sending opponents to their demise with moves such as the Desecrater, Gates of Hell II and Obliteration.

She has held the SHIMMER title as well as the NWA Women’s World title. Feuds and matches with the likes of Amazing Kong (Kharma), Mickie Knuckles, Daizee Haze and Cheerleader Melissa are among the most talked about matches in women’s wrestling.

Do not hesitate to catch MsChif at SHIMMER, Ring of Honor, Metro Pro Wrestling, NWA Dynamo World League Wrestling, MMWA-SICW and many other reputable promotions around the country to ask her for the brand new MsChif trading card.

(Editors note: Due the fact that we have 7 other cards almost done, this had to be announced before we have this card in our hands. So please give us four weeks before we have the cards in MsChif hands as well as MWR’s. Trust me it is going to be worth the wait. Thank you  – Brian Kelley

We highly recommend that you support MsChif with the purchase of the two MWR cards , and would love for you to check out her store for DVD’S, 8*10’s, T-shirts, coloring books and more. For the official MsChif store click here.

12 Wrestlers that will make an impact in Midwest during 2012!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2012

By Brian Kelley

Sure you know about the past MWR Wrestlers of the Years and champions at each promotions but what young stars should you be on the lookout for this coming year. Here we give you 12 for 2012 for you to be on the lookout for.  Some are close to be among the choices for Wrestlers of the year real soon while others are knocking at the door to be  a force in the future.

As far as the wrestlers who didn’t make the list. Use this article as motivation to outshine all twelve of these fine young talents in 2012.

Let the fun begin in the squared circles around the Midwest.

1)      Serenity

Photobucket

Serenity is known for wowing the crowd with her dazzling colors and beautiful smile. Underneath the surface, however, lies the heart and desire of a true professional wrestler. Fear is only a four letter word to this young lady as she isn’t afraid to mix it up with anyone, male or female, inside the squared circle. Anyone who has stood across from her in the ring will soon tell you that Serenity means business and if you don’t believe them, try it. You’ll find out for yourself.

Outlook: How much impact that she will have in 2012 in the MWR coverage area depends on how often she wrestles in the 15 promotions that we cover as promoters in up north have taken notice. Her looks has caught the eyes of promoters and her work rate and desire to be the best has shown moments of greatness at times. She finished the year wrestling at SICW against MsChif in the St Louis area for the first time in years.

Here is the kicker, this talented young wrestler is only twenty years of age and wrestled MsChif at the young age of 18. That’s right, she is only twenty, and has charisma to spare. She will only be getting better and looks to be one of the top stars in wrestling for many years to come. Look for her to make her way in SHIMMER sooner than later.

2)      Christian Rose

Photobucket

Rose works over Danny Cannon- Tim Dunahee

Rose had a very good 2011 but everyone at MWR feels as if the best is yet to come. A current AAPW Tag Team Champion with Matt Cage have been active at IWAU, NMW , SLA and AAPW. Quality promo skills keeps the fans attention while his in ring action keeps him in every match. Rose could easily be a MWR Wrestler of the year down the road as he has been gaining respect from his peers and a threat to his opponents.

3)      Bull Bronson

Photobucket

Bronson may be raw, let me say that again Bull is very raw but very few men in the Midwest  is as big as the HUGE AAPW star. He won a big 5-man scramble match at AAPW’S Main event and was very impressive as he picked up the win on AAPW regular Playboy Paul Rose.

A manager in this stage of his career could do wonders for him in 2012. Some training from Harley Race’s Wrestling Academy could prepare him on how to deal with other powerhouses as Brian Breaker and Jason Jones who both know how to use their strength and leverage to work to blow up a man the size of Bronson.

4)      LaMarcus Clinton

Photobucket

Loved by the fans, LMC will have to limit these mistakes that he made in Hillsdale,MO for the fans if he hopes to make it to the next level...Still Brandon Espinosa is one of the masterminds of fooling even the best and here he played possum, then moved at the last moment. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

He is quite possibly the most popular wrestler at MMWA-SICW other than Gary Jackson. Clinton is high flying and exciting but this is also high risk thus making his win loss record inconsistent. Needs to put on some weight to be a true threat to a main title at this time in his career. Maybe a tag team partner for now would give him time to gain the mass that he needs to be a title contender. Still 2012 looks to be a year with many chances to succeed for Clinton. That is if he can overcome a sophomore slump

5)      American Bulldogs

Photobucket

The American Bulldogs with manager Skyler Pierce.

Maddog McDowell has won tag team titles with multiple partners in many promotions but you can tell that he has a special place in his heart for rookie Jonathan West. McDowell has true power that has allowed him to contend for singles titles and grudge matches with some of the best in the sport. West has been like a sponge, taking in all the info and advice that McDowell will give him. Their feud with Chad Mylans MMA was a highlight for fans at 3XW for almost all of 2011.

Quality matches on the road at PWE against the PWE Champions the Hooligans showcased West at his very best. Still the inexperience of the Bulldogs would cost them during the match as the Hooligans proved once again to the Midwest that they are arguably still the standard for tag teams in the Midwest.

6)      Jaysin Strife

Photobucket

How does one of the very best in the Midwest get on this list?

Honestly, he just hasn’t been able to get going at full speed for some time. He is one of the best wrestlers today that many fans have never heard of. A tour overseas in 2011 limited his coverage as well as working towards making Magnum Pro Wrestling a force in Iowa. Strife has bookings for 3XW and PWE and if the fans are lucky at Metro Pro Wrestling he will become a regular there as well. In fact I am still waiting for my Jaysin Strife vs “Superstar” Steve Fender match. Any promotion that wants a main event player added to their roster should contact Strife soon.

7)      ACH

Photobucket

Many fans feel as if the “The Last Dragon” is a superstar sooner than later. Innovated in his moves fans at St Louis Anarchy have been raving about the young star all last year. In December at St Louis Anarchy, he would rain on the parade of Jeremy Wyatt as he returned to LWA/Anarchy in a losing effort in what many fans stated was a great great match.  Fans at Metro Pro Wrestling be sure to get tickets for the Feb 4th show as Wyatt and ACH will meet once again.. ACH will also be heading to PWE in Mt Pulaski as he will be taking on Jordan McEntyre    during a qualifying match to enter the 2011 PWE Epic 8 tournament that was won in 2010 by the 2011 MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espinosa.

Then on February in Granite City he will return to SLA to take on TJ Perkins. Like Rose, ACH is poised to become a MWR Wrestler of the Year if the cards deal them the proper way in the future.

8)      Tyler Priegel

Many fans smirk at his nickname “the Dodgeball Superstar“, but Tyler Priegel is no one to take lightly. What makes Priegel so dangerous is how methodical he is in the ring. No wasted movement and always going forward. He is a true threat right now to NMW Champion Ryan Phoenix’s title. Like Serenity though, will Priegel make his way to the MWR coverage area enough to make the impact for us to see? We certantly hope so.

9)      Mat Fitchett

Photobucket

Nicknamed “Flippy Sh%T”, Fitchett has been trained by local legend Dingo and former NWA Missouri Champ Davey Vega. Fitchett has been earning rave reviews in Texas with Texas Anarchy and ST Louis Anarchy backing down from no one. Was honored a Chikara spot for the Young Lions cup, in 2011 and was very impressive. Fitchett is another wrestler that MWR Promoters should be on the phone to try to get a spot for him on their card. Exciting and electrifying, he always brings a 100 % and looks to be a star for years to come

10)   Heath Hatton

Photobucket

Heath Hatton had a strong 2012, he was one half of the AAPW tag Team Champions with Curly. He made appearances for Harley Race’s WLW and TNA’S developmental league OVW in Kentucky. Hatton would have to go at it alone when Curly was fired from AAPW thus leaving him alone to defend the titles against Matt Cage and Christian Rose, and though Hatton fought with true heart the mountain was too tall to overcome as arch rival “The Golden Boy” Greg Anthony assisted Cage and Rose to help them became the AAPW Tag Team Champs.

He started 2012 off just right by defeating Anthony convincingly at AAPW’S Main event. Would love to take on AAPW Champ Edmund McGuire but with the two being among the top two fan favorites right now he may have to wait a bit. That may be a blessing because right now he may not be ready for the champ but with further training and matches around the Midwest by the end of 2012, he may be the man at AAPW.

11)   Lucy Mendez

Photobucket

Midwest dream girl can wrestle as good as she can model.

She is The Current WLW Ladies Champion, and yes the ratings soar when she enters the ring for Metro Pro Wrestling whether it is as a valet for Domino Rivera or in action herself. In 2011 she feuded with the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Stacey O’Brien who just barely won the award over “The Latino Princess

So why is she on this list?

It’s simple really.

Mendez just started training late 2008 and has already won two WLW Ladies Championships. With looks that kill and the desire to be the best she has been on the search for the top competition in the Midwest. Mendez has already been in the ring with the likes of O’Brien, Miss Natural, Amy Hennig and MsChif.  We would love nothing more than SHIMMER to give her an opportunity to showcase her skills taught to her by the greatest of all greats Harley Race. She deserves a chance to earn her respect  among here peers by meeting the very best women wrestlers in the world today at Shimmer. Women such as the CHEERLEADER MELISSA, SARA DEL REY and Rachel Summerlyn could bring her to the next level in 2012.

Photobucket

12)   Joey O’Riley

Photobucket

The new IWAU Champ Joey O'Riely - Photo Credit Tim Dunahee

It is easy to add O’Riley to the list many will tell us after he had defeated IWAU Champion Matt Cage in a ladder match this past Saturday in Olney Illinois. True, but it is one thing to win a title it’s another thing to hold onto the belt and with Cage who is still in the mix for another shot, it may be harder to retain that what it was to capture the title.

His youth and focused will be tested early on as he is now the hunted. With that said this is a blessing for young O’Riley so that it can prepare himself on what it is to be a Champion. The pressure of winning a belt is now over.

O’Riley is another wrestler who is still raw in his skills and in 2011 he made appearances for New Midwest Wrestling in tag action. While he is the king of his home base at IWAU it will be interesting to see how he deals with adversity. His next opponent is scheduled to be Cash Bordin, a guy who will do whatever it takes to get the belt but if he is to be among the best O’Riely  is going to have to make quick work of another fellow young star in Bordin.

Stacey O’Brien 2011 Missouri Wrestling Revival Female Wrestler of the Year.

Stacey O’Brien becomes the first ever wrestler to be a two time MWR recipient in the singles category.

O’Brien returned in 2011 after an injury had sidelined her since 2009 with a mission to regain her spot as the women to beat in the Midwest.

To say that she is better than before would be an understatement as she has been touring the Midwest breaking young fans hearts and bringing fear in her opponents.

O’Brien has been on fire capturing wins against the likes of rising star Lucy Mendez to start the year at Metro Pro Wrestling.

In April, in Collinsville Illinois, High Voltage Wrestling presented a supershow with Larry Zbyszko and a special first time meeting between Santana G with special guest Dave Hebner as the referee . While Santana G looked to celebrate her homecoming back to the Midwest, it would be Stacey O’Brien to put an end to the party when she had her hand raised once again in a true classic battle of two of the best young talents in the sport.

During a memorable moment in hot month of July, Stacey O’Brien, turned the heat up even more as she had the men’s mouths drop as she came out in a sexy Metro Referee outfit to restore order in a match between Lucy Mendez and Miss Natural.

Back in action O’Brien would come back to St Louis the South Broadway Athletic Club for the MMWA and capture a victory from arch rival Mendez, though Mendez would even the score at SICW later in the year.

At NWA Dynamo wrestling on August 8th in Glen Carbon Illinois, Stacey O’Brien would take the NWA Midwest Women’s Champ MsChif to the test in a great battle that saw MsChif use her “Green Mist” to score a victory to retain her belt.

O’Brien and her arch rival Mendez would go at it all year in World League Wrestling around the Midwest. In Burlington, Iowa on September 18th the WLW Women’s title was declared vacant and it would be the Boston Bawler who would become a 3-time WLW Ladies Champion.

In October she took part in the WLW/WWE/NOAH week long training camp to improve her skills, to get noticed and to be the best that she can be.

There is no doubt that in 2010 pro wrestling in the Midwest missed the talents of Stacey O’Brien. Fans in the Midwest enjoy her while you can as she has the work ethic to make waves in Shimmer, Japan, TNA or even WWE in the near future.

We would like to congratulate Stacey O’Brien as the 2011 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year.

1st Runner Up- Lucy Mendez
2nd Runner up-MsChif
3rd Runner Up- The Great Cheyenne

10 questions with the tallest female wrestler in the WORLD “Isis” The Amazon

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 19, 2010

In less than 2 weeks the world’s tallest female wrestler will make her debut in St Louis at NWA Dynamo/ High Voltage Wrestling. I have long to see “ISIS” the Amazon for quite some time as MWR has kept a close eye with her fellow Coastal Championship Wrestling colleague the CAC and HVW Champion Kahagas.

On March 27th in Granite City, Illinois you will have a chance to see the best in the world today MsChif team up with CAC Women’s champion to take on ISIS and Jessika Haze.

If you’re a fan of women’s wrestling then you will not want to miss this first ever encounter with ISIS and the NWA Women’s and Shimmer World Champion MsChif!!

Tickets only $10.00 each with kids 7 and under Free!!

Till then let’s enjoy 10 questions with ISIS

1) Have you always been a fan of wrestling and if so who did u look up?

I was a die hard fan of Chyna (go women of dominance!) and Chris Jericho, I always appreciated the innovative matches Jericho had.

2) How did you go about getting in the sport?

I was working for a corporation at a trade show in South Beach and came across the Main Event Training Academy, formerly known as Coastal Championship Wrestling.

3) At this point of your career what has been your personal highlight?

My FCW evaluation with WWE after just 10 months of training.

4) Who was your first match against and what was it like stepping the ring for the first time?

Calypso and her two “henchmen”. I was wearing what I like to call the bumble bee outfit, since then I’ve upgraded to actual original gear I have drawn and had made. Stepping in the ring for the first time in front of a crowd was a great experience. I had so much fun I just knew I had to do it again and again and get better.

5) What do you think some of the obstacles of being so tall and getting into the sport has been?

Learning how to bump, lol. Hip toss. Controlling the match.

6) What has surprised you the most about being a professional wrestler ?

The reality of back stabbers and prima donnas that come along with it.

7) If you were asked to be at Wrestlemania who would like to go up against and destroy and why?

Chyna- I was an avid fan and would love that opportunity. She was so bad-ass!

 

8) We have a lot of Juggalo’s and Juggalette’s in the STL that love wrestling and you have worked with the Insane Clown Posse in the past. I checked out your website where you stated that it was an awesome experience and you looked forward to working with them again. What exactly did you do there?

Well, I’ll be at JCW this weekend, the 20th, performing for them again. I wrestled 3 puny guys and threw their lightweight asses around like rag dolls.

9) “Where can people go to see your matches, videos, photos, or even to book you for an event?”
http://www.isistheamazon.com/

10) One of the top women wrestlers in the sport, MsChif will be in the house on March 27th when you make your debut at HVW/NWA Dynamo. If you should happen to go face to face with the Women’s Champion of the World, in your mind what do you see happing?

I have seen her work and respect her. I can see an awesome match occurring and your’s truly coming out on top as always. I belong on top, little girls such as the said belong underneath me. She will definately be “kissing the sky” and laying out for the 1, 2, 3 when she lands.
