Coming Snow at Dynamo Pro, SICW and WLW for this Saturday Causes Cancellations

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 18, 2019

 

Dynamo Pro

With tomorrow’s forecast calling for a winter weather mix we are unfortunately forced to cancel tomorrow’s event in DeSoto, Missouri. The safety of our fans and our locker room is always our main concern. A rescheduled date should be known by Monday, Jan. 21st.

Any tickets purchased for tomorrow’s event will be honored for the rescheduled date or you may request a refund.

SICW

Due to the uncertainty of the potential storm for tomorrow, we have determined that it’s in the best interest of our fans and wrestlers to cancel the show for January 19th. Hopefully mother nature will be nice for January 26rh and the show in Cahokia Illinois will take place. Sorry for this but for the first time in 40 years we feel it’s the best action to take.

So sit back enjoy the time with the family and left see what the storm does.

WLW

With inclement weather coming in tonight into tomorrow, we aren’t going to ask our fans and wrestlers to risk traveling in potentially ice-covered roads.

All tickets purchased will be honored at our February 2nd TV taping. For any questions, call or email

Wrestling at the Chase Great and Friend to the Wrestling Fan Larry Matysik Passes Away

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 25, 2018

 From Promoter Herb Simmons

It’s with heavy heart this morning that I come to each of you and give you the news that my good friend Larry Matysik has lost the battle. As many know his health has been declining over the past several year. I ask that you keep his wife Pat and Daughter Kelly in your thoughts and prayers as the next few days will be hard for them. I will continue to update you on the arrangements when they are available.

 

It is so hard to find the words to express my gratitude and respect for the man known as Larry Matysik. I will not lie, I did not have the privilege to grow up listening to Matysik call the Wrestling at the Chase matches as the part in Missouri I grew up I never got any of the Chase programing, I remember the first time that I met him like it was yesterday, he was a special guest of TNT Keny G’s High Risk Wrestling in Granite City. He was only there to meet the fans and during that evening he smiled, shook hands, signed autographs and took pictures with every fan and wrestler that asked. I would be around him for over 100 times in the past 10 years and let me tell you, I never once seen him be disrespectful to anybody.

There is no doubt that Larry Matysik is highly underrated in the wrestling world as one of the All –Time Greats . He worked with NWA President and Wrestling at the Chase Promoter Sam Muchnick as well as WWE Promoter Vince McMahon. He is the author of four books every wrestling fan should own, Wrestling at the Chase: The inside Story of Sam Muchnick, 50 Greatest Pro Wrestlers of All-time, Drawing Heat the Hard Way and Brody The Triumph and Tragedy with his widow, Barbara Goodish. The past several years he has been very instrumental in Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling (SICW) , one of the most successful independent promotions in the country.

I could go on and on but I would like to hammer home the type of person he was. Thanks to my friendship with Promoter Herb Simmons I would become personal friends with the man I will now refer as Larry. My fiancée Dubray Tallman always looked forward to getting a hug, a kiss and photo with him when she attended an event. He was always supportive of Missouri Wrestling Revival, offering up his advice on writing and sharing his views and history on wrestling. When I asked him to please write in my yearbook, he did not hesitate to do so. Back in the day he would send me booking sheets for SICW to help us keep up with the shows and often gave reasons of why the matches were happening. The conversations were so educational each and every time. I remember receiving a call from Larry when my father died with him sending his condolences as well as him asking several times afterwards how I was doing.

We presented Larry with the 2010 Missouri Wrestling Revival Lifetime Award, an obvious choice.

We were so thankful to have Larry in our first series of the MWR Trading card set and with Herb’s blessing we had Larry Matysik day at SICW on July 16th in 2013. Personally, I only have a few regrets in my short time working in wrestling but I wished I would have done commentary with Larry on a match, an honor one of my best friends and the voice of SICW wrestling Drew Abbenhaus enjoyed many times. It was a relief to be around a legend that was not bitter towards the sport of wrestling or the fans. Was he a fan of today’s wrestling? I can’t say that, but I can say that he always appreciated every wrestling fan young and old. He took time to work with aspiring wrestlers looking to become better. He gave to all that he came in contact with.

Today the wrestling world lost one of the good guys. He was a legendary Announcer, a great writer and so much more.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Larry’s family and friends.

Thank you Larry for the memories, we loved you.

I will leave you on a positive note of a short video we did at SICW years ago with Larry, my fiancée Dubray and Herb Simmons wishing the fans a Merry Christmas.

Superstar Steve Fender Makes History- Defeats Flash Flanagan to Become the SICW Classic Champion

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 22, 2018

By Patrick Brandmeyer

”Superstar” Steve Fender (w/ Travis Cook) d. Flash Flanagan to win the Classic Title; Flash would have gotten Travis Cook in the ring if he had won. The referee was knocked down and Fender missed the swandive headbutt, then Flash hit a middle-rope springboard legdrop…a second ref ran in to count but Cook pulled him out of the ring. Flash grabbed Cook, but King Christopher Hargas ran out to nail Flash with his own kendo stick…Fender got the pin with the first ref counting the fall and not seeing Cook provide illegal leverage from the floor (11:51)!
