Patrick Brandmeyer’s PWE predictions for tomorrow In Springfield IL

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 3, 2009


PWE Championship Match
Al Snow Vs “Bloody” Harker Dirge

Judging by the video promos of this match, I fear that Snow may be taking Dirge a bit too lightly. However, Snow is a veteran and has seen it all…Dirge will probably give him a tougher fight than expected, but I see the former WWE titleholder coming out on top. PREDICTION: Al Snow

PWE US Championship Match
Mephisto Vs Sly
These two know each other very well, having been both tag partners and opponents in their careers. Sly has the advantage in speed and agility, but lack of size may be his downfall as I see Mephisto overpowering him in this one. WINNER: Mephisto

PWE Tag Team Championship Match
North Star Express Vs Zero Gravity

This should be an outstanding tag team matchup between two of the top duos in the Midwest wrestling scene. The Northstars seem to be the more well-rounded duo and I see them emerging victorious. WINNERS: The Northstar Express

Triple Threat Contenders Match
Arik Cannon Vs Mike Sydal Vs Kyle Rich

Triple threat matches tend to be unpredictable…the third man in the ring can often break up a certain victory by one of the other two. I give this one to Cannon due to the experience edge. WINNER: Arik Cannon

Jeremy Wyatt Vs Jason Lyte of The Hybrids

Will be interesting to see Lyte in singles competition as I’m used to seeing him in tag team action…it should be a tremendous Matchup, but Wyatt is the more seasoned singles wrestler and I see him taking this one. WINNER: Jeremy Wyatt

Mark Sterling Vs Hunter Matthews

Should be a very interesting matchup here…have been impressed with both guys in recent months. I say Sterling wins but it’ll be a close one. WINNER: Mark Sterling

Mississippi Madman Vs Issan Hadeev

Suffice it to say that it could be a long night for Issan Hadeev against the massive Madman…Hadeev will probably need every underhanded tactic in the book to deal with the Madman but I don’t know if it’ll be enough. WINNER: Mississippi Madman

Cecil Cerveza Vs Brandon Espinosa

Should be a good one…a real tossup here. Flip a coin as far as picking a winner here… WINNER: Cecil Cerveza

Matt Cage Vs Curly
Wish I could provide more insight but there are several competitors on this card that I haven’t seen that often(if at all). Interested to see what Curly has to offer though. WINNER: Matt Cage

Triple Threat Tag Team Match
Tracy Smothers & Joey Grunge Vs Sage Ramsey & Dareian Frost Vs Carnage & El Magnifico

Again, three-way matches can go in any direction…tough to bet against Smothers, but the Ramsey/Frost duo may overpower the competition. WINNERS: Tracey Smothers & Joey Grunge

Best of luck to everyone involved…hope the show goes great!

Referee Wrestles Through the Indies

Referee Wrestles Through the Indies

By Kari Williams

[Styles refs for LWA in this photo taken by Kari Williams.]

As two large men collide in the center of the ring—or worse, outside of the ring—one vital person must be there to make the important calls. “Stylish” Kurt Styles is one of the men who dons the striped shirt and knows both sides of that scenario. He has even done double-duty on the same night.

“I remember my first show I wrestled on. I wrestled Sly in the opening match under a mask, and then had to go coast to coast (all matches on the card)… except one other match, but I got taken out of that one by my first chair shot. It got kind of rough doing it at times though,” he said.

The wrestling referee has been lacing up his boots since October 2003. He wrestled his first match in April 2004, but has been reffing since his days training with LWA.

Styles was also trained in the now-defunct MAX promotion by Luke Roberts for approximately four months.

“I actually went to school with some guys that were training, and they knew how much I liked professional wrestling and how I wanted to get into it, and the LWA was just starting up and they said, ‘You know, well, we need some more guys,’” he said.

His desire sprouted from a young age, as he watched “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels take on “The Hitman” Bret Hart in their classic 60-minute iron man match at Wrestlemania XII.

The Stylish One has traveled to Illinois and places as far as Michigan for his duties as a wrestler. Companies such as Heartland Championsip Wrestling (HCW) and Rampage Pro Wrestling (RPW) have had Styles as well, helping him to pursue his dream.

“I know there [are] so many guys in this business that don’t actually make it anywhere, and I don’t want to be lost in the shuffle,” he said.

Currently, Styles holds the HCW Light-Heavyweight Championship—which is the highlight of his career thus far.

“I’d say one of my favorite matches was down in Heartland Championship Wrestling, where I’m their Light-Heavyweight champion, and it was for the belt, and I was wrestling Kado McShannon, and it was just a lot of energy in the match, and the crowd was really hyped up into it. We did a lot of crazy stuff,” he said.

With switching between being a referee and wrestling, one could imagine that the transition would be difficult. However, according to Styles, “you’ve just got to have a different mindset, be more aware.”

Whether wrestling or being the mediator between two behemoths, Styles is available for bookings and can be reached through http://www.myspace.com/kurtstyles or through e-mail at sunshine_kurtstyles@hotmail.com.
