MWR Event Report: LWA on June 28, 2008

Posted by Admin on July 6, 2008

LWA Arena Report
By Kari Williams

The atmosphere at the Knight of Columbus Hall in House Springs, MO was buzzing—and not just in the alcoholic sense—on June 28 as 100 LWA fans prepared for an intense night of full-throttled action.

“Thee” Brandon Espinosa with Brandon Aarons vs. Gary the Barn Owl

Despite the fans showing their full-fledged support for Gary the Barn Owl, Espinosa had all the support and encouragement he needed in his best friend, Brandon Aarons. Gary and the fans appeared to get to Espinosa with their snide remarks. As a result, the resident Barn Owl dominated. However, Aarons’ presence at ringside proved to be the deciding factor.

In a precursor to the main event of the evening, Jordan Lacey attempted to make the champion, “Future” Donovan Ruddick lighten up by singing the Garth Brooks tune, “Friends in Low Places,” as well choice selections from a few other genres. When that failed to lift Future’s spirits, Lacey turned to dance—specifically, Soulja Boy. Ruddick walked to the back, disgusted, and it appeared as though Lacey had only angered the champ.

Dorian Victor vs. Rick Stone

The Money Mogul Dorian Victor prepared to put a beating on Rick Stone in the second match of the night. Stone attempted to make Victor put his money where his mouth was, but came up a few dollars short. Victor capitalized and succeeded in delivering the Bankbuster to ensure a three count and another check in the “win” column.

Dingo vs. Steven Kennedy

In a bout filled with as much technical prowess as one can find, Dingo and Kennedy had, arguably, one of the best matches of the night. Trading holds relentlessly, neither man held back one ounce of aggression in this fast-paced, high-impact showdown. When it came down to the final moments, Dingo’s wherewithal proved to be most influential on his performance.

“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt vs. Mark Sterling

Coming off of his victory last month, Wyatt looked to retain his newly won Medallion against Sterling. In a technically sound match, both competitors showcased their strengths in unique fashion. Despite Sterling’s best efforts and stellar performance, it was shown on this night why Wyatt holds the Medallion.

Pierre Abernathy & Johnny Vinyl vs. Evan Gelistico & K.C. Karrington

The Submission Squad, as well as Gelistico and Karrington, were primed and ready for this battle. The crowd got into this match from the get-go, firmly on the side of Gelistico and Karrington. An all-out war was being waged, setting the stage, so to speak, for Circus Maximus. Each competitor was on top of his game, going above and beyond to prove that they deserve to win. However, Karrington and Gelistico proved to be the more cohesive unit.

Presidential Elimination

Moving the presidential race one-step closer to its end, Jacob Dangle was eliminated from the competition. Then, it was brought to everyone’s attention by Steve Miller that Bavarian Boy cannot run in the election because he is not old enough. With two candidates gone, and only two remaining, fans will have to wait until July 12 to see who the newly crowned president will be—Luke Roberts or Steve Miller.

Brandon Aarons with Brandon Espinosa vs. Mike Serious

Serious sought to gain a measure of retribution on Aarons after the tag team loss Serious and A.J. Williams suffered last month. With Espinosa in his corner, Aarons had the fate of his match secured. Whenever it appeared as though Aarons was in trouble, Espinosa came to the rescue. Nonetheless, Serious’ performance should not be looked upon in shame, as he capitalized at every possible opportunity.

“Future” Donovan Ruddick vs. XXX Jordan Lacey in a Last Man Standing Match

After the encounter earlier in the evening, Ruddick was in no mood to be messed with. Even so, Lacey was prepared for battle, as he brought a ladder and a sledgehammer into the mixture, among other objects. The match ended in pure, unbridled havoc, as Ruddick slammed ferociously into a pile of metal chairs.

Overall Analysis:

The fans were in rare form on this night, giving the show that extra ounce of adrenaline it needed. Every match was a stellar performance, and all of the competitors came across as more determined than ever to succeed. A safe assumption of the night is that every, single fan walked away pleased to have chosen LWA as their entertainment for a Saturday night.

Steve Miller for LWA President

Posted by Admin on July 2, 2008

Miller seeks second term as LWA president

By Kari Williams
Steve Miller claims that he has done it all in professional wrestling. He has torn down rings, filmed and even competed. However, his most honorable position was as LWA President—a position he currently seeks to reclaim.

During his first reign, Miller played an influential role in bringing in international stars and sees only the same in his future.

“Bringing in Sabin [and] Shelley, I believe was one of the greatest moments for the LWA, and I was glad to be a part of that. When it comes down to it, I help[ed] lay the ground work and decided who would face who. The board definitely helped, but my first reign saw change, and my second will be no different,” he said.

When comparing himself against his competition, Miller asserts his astuteness over the other contenders.

“All the intelligent wrestling fans in the area know that I’m the proper man to vote for. Roberts brings a lot of experience to the table, but his ideals are too dated for a company like LWA. The little kid, whatever his name is, would look at the LWA like some plaything and would not be able to grasp the concepts needed to run a wrestling company. As far as Dangle, that bestiality freak, he left the LWA before. I’ve withstood many beatings and kept coming back, when times got tough he ran for the hills to be with a squirrel or something,” he said.

One word that would personify Miller’s “campaign” would be “improvement.” He feels that since his ousting as president, the company has been on a downward spiral. Specifically, he plans to focus on removing the “idiotic shenanigans” from the presence of the LWA superfans.

“You have a man that thinks he is a bird; I would get him the psychiatric help that he needs. There is one man that decides it would be a good idea to drink during [and] before a match, and that is not the kind of example we want to set to the fans. The other thing I would do away with are those lame videos that someone thought would be a good idea to show during the shows. Those are nothing but sophomoric humor and really serve no point what-so-ever,” he said.

On a more athletic level, Miller has notions to remove the wrestlers who he classifies as “the malarkey that is present in the current company.” Names such as Jordan Lacey, Evan Gelistico and Shorty Biggs have been mentioned. Miller’s goal is to turn the fans on to a more pure form of the sport.

“The shows would become re-centered on the smash mouth action and people will start abiding to the rules. The action would return to the hard hitting action that the fans have come to enjoy. On the other hand, if they feel that the rules are not worthwhile, then they are in for a treatment,” he said.

Also on his “presidential agenda” is a more rigorous travel schedule that would send the LWA to locations which it has never been before.

Overall, the former “Chief of Staff” relies on the simple fact that he has the brain-power to hold, and successfully handle, such an important position within the company.

“I am able to look past the simple emotions and make the decision that is best for the company. Will every fan like my decision, no, but it is good for the LWA. When I ran things, attendance was up, international talent was brought in and the shows were some of the greatest that have been seen in the recent years,” he said.

Voting for the election occurs through an LWA message board and continues up until the July 12 Circus Maximus event.

MWR Event Report: LWA on May 24, 2008

MWR Event Report
Lethal Wrestling Alliance on May 24, 2008

by Kari Williams
Lethal Wrestling Alliance made an impact in St. Peters, MO on May 24th at the Vetta Sports Complex. With a draw of 127, the LWA Superfans let their voices be heard from chanting, “Boring!” during the slower paced matches and screaming at the top of their lungs as “The Future” Donovan Ruddick slammed Gary the Barn Owl into a table.

Evan Gelistico & Jordan Lacey v. Pierre Abernathy & Dorian Victor

Originally, this bout was to consist of Pierre Abernathy challenging Evan Gelistico for the LWA Medallion. However, before the two could even lock up, Dorian Victor made his presence felt as he offered Abernathy a $5,000 check so that Victor himself had a chance at the Medallion. Abernathy agreed, but only moments into the bout, he interfered, which, in effect, caused a tag team match to develop between half of the members of the Bearded Men from Space Station 11 and Abernathy and Victor.

Jordan Lacey & Evan Gelistico defeated Pierre Abernathy & Dorian Victor.

K.C. Karrington v. Davey Vega

The bitter rivalry between these two competitors skyrocketed to a completely new level of disdain. Karrington and Vega held nothing back as they brawled relentlessly outside of the ring before the referee had even rung the bell. Vega’s conniving and deceitful ways brought about his loss of the match, as Karrington won by disqualification. Perhaps bitter about the loss, or simply so fueled by hate, Vega went on to berate Karrington after the bout and unremittingly hit him with a chair. However, the beating did not end there, as Vega began to douse his nemesis in lighter fluid, until The Ego Express’s manager, Tiffani, ran to the ring and pleaded with Vega. It took a handful of the other wrestlers to restrain Vega, who clearly has a score to settle.

K.C. Karrington defeated Davey Vega by disqualification.

LWA “Presidential Debate”

Keeping up with the election of the LWA president, is not near as hard as keeping tabs on the Democratic side of the United States presidential race. Prior to the intermission, the nominees for LWA president (Steve Miller, Bavarian Boy, Luke Roberts and Jacob Dangle) were asked a series of three questions. Roberts seemed to be the only one with a real sense of direction on the matters at hand, dishing out possible solutions and talking about everything that is right with LWA, as opposed to Miller, who only focused on the wrongs.

Tyler Cook v. Jeremy Wyatt

Without a president, things seemed to be changing at a rapid pace, as the bout between Cook and Wyatt became a fight for the LWA Medallion when Gelistico relinquished it. Both athletes waged war with all the vigor and vitality that make them championship material. Both men looked like technicians in the ring, with their pure athleticism and skill. After a lengthy, hard-fought battle, Wyatt’s prowess triumphed.

Jeremy Wyatt defeated Tyler Cook to become the new LWA Medallion Holder.

B.A.B.E. WATCH (Brandon Espinosa & Brandon Aarons) v. A.J. Williams & Michael Serious

“Girls go crazy!” was the “battle cry,” so to speak, as the smug team of Espinosa and Aarons made their way to ringside to face Mike Serious and the debuting A.J. Williams. During the fast-paced bout, the B.A.B.E.s did everything they could to distract the referee in order to bamboozle their opponents, including Aarons taunting Serious, who was not the legal man, so that Espinosa could choke out Williams. Despite a valiant effort by Serious and Williams, the immoral tactics of Espinosa and Aarons prevailed.

B.A.B.E. WATCH defeated A.J. Williams and Michael Serious.

Heavyweight Championship: “Future” Donovan Ruddick (Champion) v. Gary the Barn Owl

In this no-disqualification match-up, Ruddick and Gary beat the hell out of each other using anything and everything they could get their hands on. They brought a new meaning to ‘hardcore’ wrestling and ended the show in a meteoric fashion. Gary fought with valor, never giving up, despite a large laceration on his shoulder. Ruddick showed his dominance and provided validity for anyone who felt he was not worthy of holding the Heavyweight Title.

“Future” Donovan Ruddick defeated Gary the Barn Owl to retain the Heavyweight Championship.

Overall Assessment:

Despite a slow-paced first half, the LWA made up for it after intermission with three stellar matches that stole the show.
