Mike Outlaw on Top Once Again – Shorty Biggs Upsets Bumrush Partner Outtkast for the D-1 Title

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 22, 2016

Complete recap in the future at MWR

“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs d. Outtkast to win the D-1 Title; Outtkast got a near-fall after his corkscrew moonsault senton, but missed his second attempt at the move. Shorty capitalized with a Paydirt and fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver for the win over his Bumrush Brother tag team partner (16:05).

DPWAAUGLL-423

Shorty was happy to give his tag team partner his return match for the title…it sounds like it’ll take place at the September 17th show.

Mike Outlaw d. “Dirdey” Jake Dirden to win the Heavyweight Title for the second time. Dirden nearly won by countout after throwing Outlaw over some ringside chairs, but he barely beat the ten-count. The referee was knocked down and Dirden delivered a chokeslam, but there was no one to count the pin attempt. Dirden brought in a chair, but Outlaw dropkicked it back into his face and delivered the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) for a close near-fall. An errant Dirden boot felled the referee again and Outlaw hit a middle-rope springboard European uppercut, but Dirden took him out with the chair and a second referee ran in to count…two. Dirden wedged the chair in the corner as the second referee helped the first official back to the dressing room area…but Outlaw reversed an Irish whip into the corner chair, then whacked Dirden twice with the chair. Outlaw followed up with the Mafia Kick and the second referee returned to count…two. Outlaw didn’t waste time and dropped Dirden with a second Mafia Kick, then hit a second High Noon to finally get the win for the title (21:08)!

DPWAAUGLL-539

Outlaw was ecstatic to regain the championship after a year-plus of Dirden dodging him…but he said he wouldn’t be the same kind of champion and offered Dirden a rematch whenever he wanted it. The two shook hands to end the show.

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!

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…

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

 photo 19_zpsjl88ocyj.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.

 photo 15 2_zps8prisapk.jpg

 photo 13 2_zpspt4qu5ra.jpg

 photo 16 2_zpsvqixmo15.jpg

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.
 photo 10 2_zpsyjcgilfc.jpg

K.L.D. has been making waves in the Midwest and across the country as he has been training with Michael Elgin as well.
 photo 12 2_zpspp7cagzh.jpg

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.

 photo 9_zpsasfv5rfz.jpg

“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.

 photo 6_zpslrah5q7d.jpg

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!

Dynamo Pro Wrestling Jake Dirden vs. Shorty Biggs Tomorrow Night at the Stratford Bar & Grill

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 7, 2015

Dynamo Pro Wrestling celebrated its eighth anniversary at the Stratford Inn in Fenton, Missouri on Saturday, June 13th with a great night of action. Mike Outlaw got his obligatory rematch against Champion Jake Dirden, but outside factors would decide the outcome once again…

The event began with the full roster at ringside for a ten-bell salute to the late “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. Dusty’s charisma, gift of gab, and overall influence on the wrestling business were undeniable and it felt like a true icon of the industry had passed away…wrestlers and fans of all ages counted themselves among those who were fans of The Dream.

 photo 1_zpsfivahh3d.jpg

Executive Director Mark Bland attempted to explain his actions against Mike Outlaw the previous month. He claimed that he wanted to teach the rookie a lesson about taking advantage of opportunities…Outlaw refused to use a weapon in his title defense against Dirden, leading to Dirden knocking out the champion with the briefcase. Bland ordered the referee to count the pinfall rather than call for a disqualification, resulting in Outlaw being cheated out of the belt. Outlaw was not satisfied with Bland’s explanation, but Dirden(accompanied by Travis Cook and Alexander P. Dixon) inserted himself into the verbal battle to set the stage for the night’s main event.

The first match of the night saw the ladies of Dynamo Pro in action as “The Queen Of Chaos” Lucy Mendez took on the debuting Paloma Starr.

Starr had the advantage in fan support, but Lucy’s experience made the difference as she scored the victory with a hanging DDT.

After her match, Mendez personally introduced “The Filipino Warrior” Elvis Aliaga for his bout…he would go one-on-one with Outtkast of the Bum Rush Brothers.

 photo 13_zpsw0tgfp1g.jpg

The two had traded wins in the past so this was the proverbial rubber match between them. Aliaga distracted the referee at a key moment, allowing Mendez to trip Outtkast on the top rope and then slap him in the face. With Outtkast focused on Lucy, Elvis was able to roll him up with a handful of tights for the cheap victory.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz

The manager of Champions Travis Cook leads Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors.

“The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz brought his IWRG Rey De Ring Championship to the ring for his bout with Jayden Fenix of the Black Hand Warriors. Fenix’s manager Travis Cook, intent on controlling all the gold in Dynamo Pro Wrestling, challenged Ricky to put his belt on the line…Cruz accepted on the grounds that Travis finally shut his mouth!

Fenix surprised the veteran champion on a few occasions and nearly scored the upset more than once. However, Cruz retained his title via tapout with a modified Anaconda Vice.

The Bite Club made their way to the ring as Rocket(accompanied by Jackal) took on “The Millenial” Danny Adams in singles competition.

Rocket & Jackal had fallen short against the Black Hand Warriors in the previous month’s Tag Team Title match, but rebounded to upset the Bum Rush Brothers at Off Broadway and were looking to continue their momentum. For his part, Adams had been establishing himself as a top contender in recent months…he controlled a good portion of this matchup by focusing on Rocket’s leg. Rocket rallied, but missed an aerial move and Adams capitalized with a flying Codebreaker off the second rope for the three-count.

Justin D’Air & Keon Option were psyched for their Tag Team Title shot at the Black Hand Warriors, entering the ringside area with a special Straps Down University-themed entrance. The two rookies had been allies of Mike Outlaw in recent months in his wars with the Travis Cook Organization and hoped to derail their momentum with a big victory on this night. Michael Magnuson & Dave DeLorean had the edge in experience both individually and as a cohesive unit, making it an uphill battle for the upstart challengers. D’Air was isolated from his partner for several minutes, but Option finally tagged into the fray and his team seized the momentum. D’Air launched himself off the top rope into a 450 Splash on DeLorean, but Travis Cook distracted the referee from seeing the potential pinfall. That allowed Magnuson to bring a chain into the ring, but D’Air got it away from him and knocked him out with it…the referee turned around and made the three-count, seemingly crowning new Tag Team Champions!

However, Travis and Alexander Dixon protested the decision due to the use of the chain…and when the referee found the foreign object on D’Air’s person, he reversed the decision and awarded the disqualification victory to the Black Hand Warriors.

After Outtkast and Aliaga’s clash earlier in the show, their tag team partners did battle as Shorty Biggs took on Brandon Espinosa (accompanied by Lucy Mendez). Shorty was intent on avenging his partner’s tainted defeat while Espy was hoping to make it a clean sweep of the Bum Rush Brothers. Lucy got involved in this matchup as well, but it finally backfired as Espinosa knocked Lucy off the ring apron by mistake. Biggs hit the Shortcut for the victory, then carried Mendez to the backstage area.

The ringside area was crowded with humanity as the night’s main event began. Heavyweight Champion “Dirdey” Jake Dirden had Travis Cook, Alexander Dixon, and all three Black Hand Warriors on his side. Mike Outlaw was backed up by Justin D’Air and Keon Option, plus Executive Director Mark Bland was at ringside to observe the action…with all the combustible elements in one place, it didn’t take long for the powder keg to ignite. Outlaw rallied against the champion earlier and landed the High Noon top-rope elbowdrop, but the Warriors stormed the ring to break up the pin and everyone brawled. The referee made the decision to eject the extra wrestlers rather than call for an early disqualification…leaving only Cook and Bland at ringside.

Outlaw was intent on proving that he could take the big man down on his own…he felt he didn’t need extra help or foreign objects to accomplish that. If he was unable to win, he’d have to work his way back up the ladder of contention. Dirden dominated with his size and power for a while, but Outlaw kept finding ways to outmaneuver the champion. The young challenger hit a second High Noon and seemed to have the title won for a second time…but this time it was Mark Bland who broke up the pin attempt. Bland repeated his message about learning from his “experience” and seizing opportunities…in this case, it would be Dirden would take advantage of the situation, catching Outlaw in the Asiatic Spike from behind.

Dirden powered his opponent down to the mat but Outlaw refused to surrender; however, Bland used his executive influence and ordered the bell to be rung, declaring Dirden the winner by “submission”.

“YOU’RE FIRED

It seemed like the show was over, but Dynamo co-promoter Crystal Yount ordered Bland back to the ringside area. She angrily told him that the fans deserved a better ending to the anniversary show than that…so she sent them home happy by declaring to Bland: “YOU’RE FIRED!” Bland was outraged and had to be physically escorted out of the building by ringside security…capping off a wild night in Fenton for Dynamo Pro’s eighth anniversary!

Jake Dirden is facing challengers from all sides…and the Dynamo Tag Team Titles changed hands for the first time in nearly two years!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 16, 2014

The night started at the Stratford Inn in Fenton with Jeremy Wyatt taking on newcomer Andrew Wilder. “The Belt Collector” had his sights set on one of the few championships that he hasn’t held…and while Wilder put up a good fight, he was outmatched in this case. Wyatt forced the youngster to tap out to a unique half-crab variation.

Another favorite in the night’s battle royal was Alexandre Rudolph. Rudolph’s size and power were a major factor in that instance, but he showed his intelligence earlier in the night by reversing Geek Singh‘s armbar attempt into a pinning combination.

 photo 1620645_669586626412992_1521976101_n_zps368684d9.jpg

Executive Director Mark Bland hyped the night’s lineup but was interrupted by manager Travis Cook. With Ken Kasa and Dave Vaughn‘s Missouri licensing up in the air, Cook was seemingly left without representation on the show…but he had something else in mind for the evening.

Rivals Mike Sydal and “Showtime” Bradley Charles did battle…Sydal was the crowd favorite on this night and picked up the win after a moonsault while holding his yoga mat.

It was every man for himself in a four-corner bout featuring Jon Webb, “The Alternative” Brandon Gallagher, Ace Hawkins, and Evan “Money” Morris. Alliances formed and were quickly tossed aside as only one man could emerge victorious; that mentality worked in Gallagher’s favor as he took advantage of the chaos that ensued. After Webb hit Sliced Bread #2 on Hawkins, Gallagher threw Webb out of the ring and pinned Ace with feet on the ropes for illegal leverage.

Kevin X took on Mark Sterling in a battle of heavy hitters. Sterling’s crossfit background allowed him to hang in there with the veteran, but Kevin X took home the victory after his signature Pavement Drop. Bland announced that Kevin X would get the next title shot at Jake Dirden at the Off Broadway show…and that brought out the champion himself. Dirden complained that Bland was simply “handing out” title shots to whoever wanted them and that he should only be facing the most worthy challengers. By the end of the night, Dirden would have no shortage of opponents on his agenda.

The title was not on the line as Dirden faced WLW Heavyweight Champion Elvis Aliaga. Aliaga lose a close bout to Dirden in January with the Dynamo Championship at stake; however, Elvis claimed the referee had prematurely called for the bell when he lost consciousness in the Asiatic Spike hold. This time around, Aliaga was all business as he took the fight to his larger opponent…but things got out of control and the fight ended in a no-contest after both men shoved the official. All three referees and Mark Bland entered the ring to restore order, but Dirden laid out Aliaga with the title belt. Dirden took his leave, but not before literally shoving the belt in Bland’s face.

After the Black Hand Warriors scored a victory over Shorty Biggs and Evan “Money” Morris last month, Shorty and his Tag Team Championship partner Outtkast had to defend their belts against the WLW Tag Champs. Michael Magnuson and David DeLorean showed their tag team expertise as they took the champs to their limit, but the Bumrush Brothers turned the tide before Travis Cook made his presence known. The champs and the referee were both distracted and DeLorean took advantage with a low blow on Shorty…DeLorean put Magnuson on top of Shorty and the referee turned around to make the three-count. The Bumrush Brothers’ 22-month reign as champions had ended…and it looks like Travis Cook has a new tag team in his stable! As of this writing, there’s no word on what Kasa and Vaughn feel about the situation…

The Dynamo Rumble was a situation with no friends or allies…only one competitor could walk away as the winner with a guaranteed Heavyweight Title shot. Several favored competitors entered the fray along with some surprise entrants; Lucy Mendez was the second entrant and the lone female contender, lasting several minutes before being eliminated by Wyatt. Newcomer Andino Giovanni made his return after a long injury layoff, battling several more experienced opponents until being double-teamed by Wyatt and SBC. Rudolph was the powerhouse of the field, eliminating several entrants and lasting until the final four.

Several existing issues surfaced in the midst of the battle; Sydal and SBC locked horns once again, leading to Charles throwing Sydal out of the ring and getting some retribution for his earlier loss. Wilder crossed paths with Wyatt once again and was sent floorward. The Black Hand Warriors had to deal with not only the Bumrush Brothers but also Jack Gamble; Gamble and partner Jon Webb had been targetting the pair’s WLW Tag Titles in recent months. DeLorean eliminated Gamble, but the Black Hand Warriors’ night wasn’t quite over.

Outtkast eliminated DeLorean, then Magnuson entered only to be jumped in the aisleway by Shorty Biggs! Shorty didn’t want to wait for his official entrance to the matchup as he assaulted Magnuson at ringside, then brought him into the ring for a double-team beating and elimination. Undaunted, Magnuson pulled Shorty to the floor from outside the ring…that issue is nowhere close to being settled..

Dan Walsh hit the ring and immediately set his sights on Brandon Gallagher; Gallagher had cost Walsh a match to Kevin X in January and “Walking Reality” wanted to get some payback. Walsh sent his blue-haired rival sailing out of the ring…but Gallagher didn’t call it a night just yet.

Elvis Aliaga was a surprise entrant at #20…he had already tangled with Dirden earlier in the night, but he wanted another shot at the big man even if he had to win the battle royal to do it. The final four of the match were Wyatt, Rudolph, Walsh, and Aliaga…the remaining competitors focused their efforts on Rudolph, allowing Wyatt to finally get him out of the ring. Wyatt threw Walsh over the ropes…and Gallagher(who was still lurking at ringside) pulled him to the floor to cause his elimination!

That left the first and last entrants to battle it out, so Dirden made his way to ringside to observe the outcome. However, his presence was a distraction to the wrestlers in the ring, particularly Aliaga; that allowed Wyatt to knock Elvis off the top rope to the floor, scoring a huge win in the battle royal!

Dirden and Wyatt confronted each other after the match, but Kevin X made his way to ringside to remind Dirden that his title shot is in a few weeks. With Kevin X, Wyatt, and possibly Aliaga in his future, the Dynamo Heavyweight Champion has a lot on his plate in the upcoming months!

The World League Wrestling Tag Team Champions the Black Hand Warriors (David Delorean and Michael Magnuson) has become the first tag team to our knowledge to capture another tag team title during their WLW title reign. The Black Hand Warriors marched into Dynamo Pro Wrestling with the “Manager of Champions” Travis Cook leading the way as they ended the Bumrush Brothers (Shorty Biggs and Outtkast) 22 month long reign as Champs. The turning point in the match was a low blow heard around the world, as DeLorean took advantage on Shorty when the referee had his back turned to seal the victory and capture the Dynamo Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions.

Look for a full recap from Patrick Brandmeyer on here soon.

New Champions lead Proving Ground Pro into the new year:

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 11, 2013

From Brady Lawrence

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

 photo DDD_zps099db259.jpg

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

 photo DDDD_zps6ad434d2.jpg

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

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

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

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

 photo E_zps22e9bf24.jpg

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

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

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

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

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