2014 MWR Honorees Tony Casta, Lucy Mendez and Daniel Eads Receive Awards

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 29, 2015

The past few months have been fast and furious as we have covered the hottest wrestling action , while making our way to the 50th Anniversary of the Cauliflower Alley Club in Las Vegas. An amazing time for fans or pro wrestling in the Midwest as you are able to catch the biggest stars in a town near you one night, then turn on your TV and see them in a WWE, TNA or ROH ring.

Earlier in the year we named the 2014 MWR Award recipients for:

MWR Wrestler of the Year – Ricky Cruz
MWR Female Wrestler of the Year – Lucy Mendez
MWR Tag Team of the Year – The Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter)
MWR Future Star – Daniel Eades
MWR Future Star – Elvis Aliaga
MWR Lifetime Achievement – MMWA Promoter Tony Casta

In the past we have always purchased the plaques out of pocket, but due to the lack of funds, this year I sought out sponsors for the awards. MWR did sponsor the Lifetime Award for Tony Casta, and we were thankful to have Robert Hickman from Rollin Around sponsor the MWR Female award of Lucy Mendez and wrestling superfan Pamela Smartt was kind enough to sponsor “The Man of Tomorrow” Daniel Eads.

Before we take a look at the photos of the presentation, If you would like to sponsor the awards for Ricky Cruz, The Hooligans or Elvis Aliaga, please contact me at flairwhoooooo@yahoo.com

Missouri Office of Athletics present Awards of Excellence to South Broadway Legends

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 13, 2013

 photo IMG_4497_zpscddce782.jpg

During the MMWA “King of Cable” Tournament at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club in November, the Missouri Office of Athletics supervisor, Ed Moynahan, presented Awards of Excellence to a few that have made an unselfish contribution to pro wrestling.

First was wrestling promoter Tony Casta and his wife Wanda. Tony wrestled and then promoted for 28 years. When fans purchase a ticket for South Broadway wrestling, one of the first people they see is Wanda.  The MMWA at the SBAC is a tradition for many young and old, and Tony and Wanda are vital to the success that pro wrestling continues to have.

Senior Referee Jim Harris has been on the job for 27 years. Harris began his training with Rick Roberts and the Masked Executioners, and took in as much advice from former Wrestling at the Chase Referee Ed Smith. Harris has the respect and admiration from his peers, wrestlers and fans for his utmost integrity and dedication to his profession.

To many, “The Great One” Gary Jackson is St. Louis Wrestling.  The former military veteran made his mark in the Midwest and made appearances in WWE and WCW. He continues to main event cards and capture titles in exciting matches each month.  Gary Jackson is everything that a champion needs to be: hardworking, professional, and always there for the fans.

The Lumberjacks Abe and Gabe have been a staple of pro wrestling in the Midwest for the past 25 years.  They stand 6’4 and 6”3 respectively and weigh a combined 600 pounds.  They have been inducted into the Missouri Wrestling Hall of Fame and are the one the most decorated tag teams in the Midwest.

Ron Powers shoots on Gary Jackson, Chris Hargas,Ben Simon, Herb Simmons, Larry Matysik and the MMWA-SICW .

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 18, 2011

To hear CWC Champion Ron Powers talk he has swept the competition away in 2011.

The most feared man in St Louis Ron Powers  has been on a rampage in 2011 causing fear and anger among fans and wrestlers alike. During the past year he has challenged promoter Herb Simmons and the wrestlers of MMWA-SICW.

For the fans that do not know there has been rumors that MMWA-SICW have been split in two different promotions. Though several of my close friends within the company claim this to be a fact, until promoters Tony Casta or Herb Simmons tell us themselves we are still viewing them as a single brand.

We start of with a reply from our friend Ben Simon, the former ring announcer from the SICW brand who is also the producer of ST LOUIS Wrestling on youtube. Ben replies on the story that MWR printed recently titled “Ron Powers to meet Chris Hargas and continues to warn MMWA-SICW ” and you can check it out here. For the record the misspelling was indeed my fault (Editor and Owner Brian Kelley) as I was writing down his quotes over the phone fromm Powers and when I set them to print I made the  mistake.

Photobucket
Ben Simon was one of the men that signed up for the MMWA-SICW open tryout. During it one of the men he interviewed was one of the top young talents in Central Illinois Blake Steel.

With that said let us start with Ben Simons reply to the CWC Champion on that post at MWR.

I take issue with Ron Powers commenting on the MMWA at South Broadway, only since it was SICW that wanted to break away.
Ron is the SICW Classic Wrestling Champion (who apparently can’t spell the name of his title correctly).
Ron is not the MMWA-SICW kingpin!

He rules Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling. However, the doors to the South Broadway Athletic Club are wide open. Ron, put your money and your anger issue where your mouth is and fight the MO/IL Heavyweight Champion, Gary Jackson.
I have watched these two great athletes in action and I have no doubt that “Gorgeous” Gary would knock the daylights out of Powers. Mr. Simmons, Mr. Matysik, TEAR DOWN THIS WRESTLING WALL!

-Ben Simon

It would not be long for word to get out to Ron Powers who was quick to respond. Ron Powers does not leave any words left unsaid. He has been a bully in 2011 while taking out his good friend Danny Boy for the title then targeting each and every legend that Herb Simmons can find.

First of all, Ben, you’re a dipshit. I don’t lay the format out for the articles. Did you ever think there are more people involved with the MWR website than just me? I know what my title is, and we know what yours is, a Jabrony. I want you to take issue with everything I say, and everything I do, because you are stupid enough to buy it. As far as Gary goes, He is a great athlete, and has very entertaining promos. But as long as I’m around, he will always be second best.

As far as the “open doors” at South Broadway, I don’t think so. The reason SBAC’s doors are open, is because nobody wants to wrestle there. Don’t you get it? You seem to be the only person from SBAC who even cares. And we all know how much you care. You’re the first one in the dressing room, and the last one to leave.

You also mentioned Benny, about tearing down “this wrestling wall”. Again, dumbass, get the story straight. The only people who built this wall, was all you idiots at South Broadway. Don’t EVEN compare yourselves to us! Hey, great Rhino match by the way. It sounds like the fans really got their money’s worth on that one. This is what I’m saying. You guys couldn’t coordinate a two car funeral. Broadway had great potential at one time. However, the loony’s took over the asylum. It’s an abyss of self-absorbed egos. If anyone has an issue with this, come see me at a real show this Sat. night at East Carondolet.

And last but not least, Herb and Larry. I hear you guys are passing around Pat O’Conner tapes. Could these tapes consist of a certain sleeper hold? Could you two be up to something again? Let me tell you this, it will not work on me. I have never been put to sleep by anyone in this business, and I won’t be. I don’t know what “victim” has learned this move, but it will not work on my 19″ neck, I guarantee you.

Photobucket

Chris Hargas calls out the fans for support this weekend in East Carondelet.

This Saturday night, at East Carondolet, Chas Wesson and Chris Harges, you two will know what it’s like to step between the ropes and fight for your lives, when you take on me and (Sean) Vincent. Herb, you said you would find someone to take me out one day. This Saturday will not be the day!

-Ron Powers

This weekend Chris Hargas has a chance to meet Ron Powers in East Carondelet to see if he can withstand the champions onslaught. Chris Hargas be prepared as the Midwest Bully, the Kingpin of MMWA-SICW Ron Powers is in no mood to play around as he has even called out the great beloved ST Louis wrestling announcer Larry Matysik.

Will Ron Powers continues his reign of terror this Saturday????….Be there.

MMWA-SICW July 11 recap, part two

Posted by reimaginejournalism on August 2, 2009

By Kari Williams

As the second show of the night for the MMWA wrestlers, some of them pulled double duty to please the fans at South Broadway Athletic Club. Depsite the show starting late due to the earlier show in Dupo, the wrestlers delivered exactly what the fans wanted to see, with a few surprise returns mixed in.

Heavyweight Champion Gary Jackson and his arch-rival Shaft, with Travis Cook, clashed in the main event. Shaft took the coward’s way out on this exchange, attacking Jackson from behind to start the match. His dastardly antics continued, as Cook interfered, giving Shaft the distinct advantage.

The war made its way to the outside for the second time, and Jackson got his revenge and took over.

The champion looked poised for victory, and the Connection must have sensed this, because Junior Heavyweight Champion Dave Vaughn ran into the ring and attacked Jackson while Cook distracted the referee. All hell broke loose, as Phil E. Blunt, Cook and Shaft assaulted Jackson.

Just when it looked like nobody would come to Jackson’s aid, Commissioner Keith Smith ran from the announcer’s table to do some damage. Even MMWA Promoter Tony Casta got in the mix, as he delivered an old school flying headscissors to Shaft.

Smith revealed that he has become a licensed wrestler in the state of Missouri, and showed The Connection, the papers to prove it.

Fan favorites Johnny Courageous and A.J. Williams put on, arguably, the best match of the night prior to the main event. Courageous tried to eliminate Williams’ key moves by viciously attacking both the arm and the leg.

Not one to be deterred, Williams fought with everything he had, even going so far as to attempt a moonsault within the first five minutes.

These two men took each other to the limit. Despite Courageous trying to remove the possibility of the superkick from Willilams’ arsenal, Williams continued to put Courageous to the test. The match ended in controversy, as both men had the other’s pinned to the mat.

Blade wrestled Vaughn, accompanied Travis Cook, in a non-title match. Blade controlled the better part of the bout, but that is not to say that Vaughn was overmatched. After Blade connected with an elbow drop from the top rope, Cook began to look worried.

Vaughn may have felt that his title could be in jeopardy in the future, if Blade were to win the match—and that lit a fire under Vaughn, who maintained the lead from the momet he connected with a belly to belly suplex.

However, the fans distracted Vaughn, if only for a moment, which almost caused Blade to get the quick win. Vaughn rapidly regained focus and defeated Blade with the spear in just under 10 minutes.

Destiny Diamond had the chance to make up for her shortcomings against Alexis in Dupo, as the two went at it again, with the belt on the line. Alexis started the match off with the early advantage, but Diamond quickly took over, using nearly every illegal tactic possible. From this point on, both women worked hard to either maintain or regain control. Alexis refused to let her belt slip away, and Diamond wanted nothing more than to finally earn the belt. Diamond pulled out a win in 7:21 with a tornado DDT. After the match, Alexis appeared to have injured her neck. She was helped to the locker room.

A battle royal took place, featuring Vaughn, Shaft, Williams, Blade, Courageous, Jaysin Static and Core. Bodies flew in every direction, and eliminations occurred at a rapid pace, with Core and Static simultaneously taking each other out, as was the same for Courageous and Williams. Shaft and Blade were eliminated next, respectively, leaving Vaughn as the sole winner.

Static and Core wrestled for the second time this night in the opening contest. Fans distracted Core from the get go, causing Static to try and steal a quick victory. In this back and forth battle, the two went in and out of the ring. In one of the pivotal moments, Static prepared to launch onto Core, who stood on the outside of the ring, but Core saw Static coming and got him caught up in the ropes. That one misstep by Static allowed Core to take the advantage. But Static’s resiliency forced him to continue, and he pinned Core, gaining retribution for his earlier loss.
