MWR Christmas wish list of matches for 2011.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 26, 2010

By Brian Kelley

2010 is near a close and the yearly awards are coming up quickly with some very tough decisions to be made from the awards committee over who will honored with the Wrestler, Tag Team, female, and promotion of the year.

So instead of worrying about who I am going to give my vote to I am going to flip the script.

I am going to make my Christmas wish of matches on this Black Friday  that I would like to see in 2011.

Instead of matches that have done before I am going to do my best to name 10 matches that to my knowledge have not happen before.

So without further ado I give you my Christmas wish matches in NO certain order.

1) Bailey Mannix with Lovely Leon

vs.
Jaysin Strife

– It is no secret that I have mad respect for both of these competitors. These two men going at it would be a true wrestling classic. One could say that Mannix has the power advantage but Strife could be just a little faster. Neither man is afraid to get their hands dirty and brawl with the best of them. A true wrestling classic in every aspect.

2) The Barrio Boys (Angel and Domino Rivera) With Lucy Mendez

The Extreme tag team (Photo Credit Jerry Chavez)

vs.

Attitude Inc. (Spencer Powers and Guy Smith )

Attitude Inc. (Guy Smith and Michael Shard) – Can New Midwest Wrestling handle being EXTREME? Former ECW Original Angel and his partner Domino Rivera is two men that many promotions run and hide from signing them to the fed.

Attitude Inc appears to be all show but the Boyz would soon find out that Guy Smith and Michael Shard can go.

3) Dixieland Destroyer with The Magic Man

vs.

Shane Rich (Photo by Mike Van Hoogstraat)

Shane Rich – The beauty and the Beast is what I would call this AAPW clash. Rich has the good looks and conditioning but would it be enough to overcome the hillbilly power of the Destroyer.

4) Donovan Ruddick

Mephisto feels the power of Donovan Ruddick.

vs.

Abu Colossus

– OK I have been begging for this match for a long time now. Don’t believe me click here to read a former article of mine that sets this match up perfectly. With Ruddick on the verge to explode would Colossus put out the spark first.

5) The Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter)

The Hooligans

vs.

The Gentleman’s Club (Casanova and Devin Carter) with Todd Countryman.

The Gentleman’s Club (Casanova and Devin Carter)

– The Hooligans have been almost everywhere but they have not been to the 2008 MWR Promotion of the Year 3XWrestling. With the Gentleman’s club running hot shot over everyone would the Hooligans be able to sway the good fortunes over fan favorites? Or would the mastermind Todd Countryman make them his next victim.

6) Lucy Mendez

Lucy Mendez has come on strong in 2010.

vs.

Santana G

Santana has teamed with some top talent in 2010 but she has yet to win the WLW Womens title.

– Two of the most popular women in the Midwest today. Mendez has had all the eyes on her at Metro Pro Wrestling. What if the Midwest Sweetheart was to show up? No women I know wants competition and the real winners in this battle would be us the fans.

7) Jeremy Wyatt

Every young wrestlers nightmare Jeremy Wyatt (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

vs.

Evan Money

Evan Money-

To become the best that you can be you have to work your way to the top. Money the teenage heart throb has had a solid year in 2010. Wyatt is considered by many to be the best in the game today. You say Money has no chance to survive against “The Rebel”. In Money’s defense he has earned some tough wins but this would be a measuring stick for one of the Midwest hottest young stars. My advice Money, if you have a belt stay far away from “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt.

8) Dan Walsh

Dan Walsh

vs.

Rory Fox

Rory Fox

-MTV vs MTV – Rory Fox gained national fame as one of the featured personalities on MTV’s True Life while Dan the Danimal” Walsh starred in MTV’s Road Rules. Need I say more.

9) Steve Fender and Mark Sterling

vs.
BroMance Jordan McEntyre and Knight Wagner with Eryn

– Different styles for sure, Fender and Sterling are no nonsense hit you in the mouth tag team in the style of Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard while BroMance is….well they are BroMance a team with a lot of flash but can blind you with their double team abilities.

10) Trevor Murdoch

vs

Jonathan Magnus with Stephani King

Jonathan Magnus with Stephani King- No one likes a bully and that is what Magnus is at New Midwest Wrestling. A big man pushing his weight around to keep the NMW title around his waist. I don’t think that Murdoch would be so easy to push around. A match that would be talked about for ages in Springfield Illinois for years to come.

In my personal stocking match-

Crimefighter gets Eric Allens attention

Crimefighter’s chosen wrestler vs. The Pride of Peroia Eric Allen – A perfect match for NMW. It has been over a year ago that we took a look at the contriversal Eric Allen and his supposed win for the “Peorian Pride Championship”, ST louis Wrestling communities Crimefighter called foul quickly. Words and tempers flared between the two in the past but what if the red hot Eric Allen was to show his face in Springfield Illinois at the heart of Crimefighter’s coverage area?

A special attraction match for sure.

Other notable matches

The Cancun Kid vs. Kwong with Chad Mylan
Jason Jones vs. Ryan Phoenix
Preston Maxwell vs. Homicidal Steven Davis
Billy McNiel vs Zach Thompson
Curly vs #1 Brett Young
Jimmy Rockwell vs Brandon Espinosa
Pete Madden vs. Dave Vaughn
Matty Starr vs. Danny Cannon

Gary Giaffoglione’s Pro Wrestling Phoenix Oct 16th Photo recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 5, 2010

The PWP Tag Champs with their manager Axel Greece. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

At the beginning of the show, PWP Tag Team Champions Zac James & Ryan Slade came out along with “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. Greece explained that if Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket lost, they could never have another tag team title shot as long as James & Slade were champions. However if they won they would get Greece in the ring for five minutes after the match. They made fun of the crowd for a few minutes before Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket came out. They chased them out of the ring, and Chris Havius told them to up the stakes a little bit. He made the challenge to make the match a Tornado Tag match, which the Champions accepted!

1.) Sir Bradley Charles defeated Jayden Draigo. This was a very technical opening bout, and Draigo didn’t seem like his usual self. In the end, SBC got what most would consider and upset win over Draigo with his TKO maneuver.

2.) “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell defeated Zach Thompson. You could tell that each man was familiar with the other’s work as there were reversals all over the place. In the end Rockwell laid out Thompson with the sit out Gordbuster and hit his Rock-On Bomb off the top rope to get the 1-2-3.

3.) Joey Daniels defeated David Clark. Clark, returning to the ring after a lengthy stay in China was looking to pick up where he left off by taking Joey Daniels out. There was a lot of action here, and Clark showed an amazing array of Suplexes and holds. However Daniels had his tricks up his sleeve as well, and capitalized on one small mistake Clark made to pick up the victory in this one. During the match, Jayden Draigo was observing from the entrance area, and afterwards, he got in the ring and whispered something in David Clark’s ear. We are not clear what the meaning of this is and are trying to get some more details. Clark declined comment on the matter.

4.) Abu Colossus defeated Preston Maxwell via Disqualification. Colossus was looking for revenge against Maxwell after last month’s mockery of the Big Hurt. However, during Colossus’ entrance, Maxwell sneak attacked him and they started brawling on the outside of the ring. They threw each other into walls and chairs as the referee tried to get them into the ring to start the match! Maxwell reversed a whip into the ring post and it seemed like Colossus was hurt. He rolled him into the ring and demanded the referee ring the bell but only got a two count. Some back and forth action between the two happened before Colossus set up for his big Full Nelson Slam, but Maxwell took the cheap way out by kicking him straight in the crotch! The referee rang the bell and Maxwell locked the Gator Roll Choke on Abu, refusing to let go.

The refs had a very difficult time getting Maxwell to break the hold. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

Does Preston Maxwell have “The Big Hurts” number? It has look that way in the past few months. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

It took two referees and about 5 minutes before Maxwell finally let Colossus out of the hold and you could tell he was very proud of himself as he went to the locker room.

5.) Zac James & Ryan Slade w/ Axel Greece defeated Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket to retain the PWP Tag Team Championship. This match broke down fast with the Tornado rules in place, and it seemed that every time Havius tried to get in the ring to stop Peppercricket from getting double-teamed, they would knock him back outside. The end came when Slade whipped Havius into the ring post causing a deep laceration requiring stitches to close. Meanwhile James hit the Sliced Bread on Peppercricket, and Slade followed it up with a splash from the top rope to retain their titles and save their manager from a beating. Elated, the champions left knowing they will never have to face the duo again.

What happened next was perhaps on of the most shocking moments in PWP history, as Donnie Peppercricket brutally attacked Chris Havius! He yelled that it was Havius’ fault, and hit him in the back multiple times with a steel chair! He then his Emerald Fusion maneuver onto the chair before leaving Havius lying in the middle of the ring.

NO… Donnie Peppercricket drops PWP official and close MWR friend Cody Murphy...Peppercricket how dare you!!!!(Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

PWP Official Cody Murphy was in the ring immediately to check on Havius but his timing was too soon as Peppercricket, furious with rage returned to the ring and gave the Crew Member a Fire Thunder Driver! He then dragged Havius over the corner, put the chair on top of him and delivered a vicious Vader Bomb. The crowd was shocked as Peppercricket taunted them and left out the front door, on his way out, he taunted Havius’ girlfriend who was practically in tears after witnessing the beatdown. PWP Referees and Crew Members helped the PWP Official and Chris Havius to the back once Peppercricket was out of the building.

Abu Colossus came out, looking pretty upset at Preston Maxwell’s actions from earlier in the night, and he laid out a challenge for the show on November 13th. He challenged Preston Maxwell to PWP’s first ever Last Man Standing match! This is going to be brutal!

6.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Matty Star to retain the PWP Heavyweight Championship. This was just an amazing contest, it’s hard to do it justice by just describing it! This match is the reason you need to be at PWP Live Events, the action was so intense between the two! There were multiple times when either man could have been pinned, but a critical moment came when Star (and the crowd) thought he had the match won with a Falcon Arrow off the TOP rope! Somehow Cortez found the heart to kick out of the maneuver! Star went up top one more time, but it was a mistake as Cortez was able to capitalize and deliver the Ki Krusher that he has been using to pin his opponents lately and retained his coveted title. After the match Cortez and Starr showed each other respect and you could see that Cortez deemed Star a worthy opponent.

The next PWP Live Event is November 13th at the National Guard Armory in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Notes for the show so far:

The match has been signed and it will happen! Next month’s main event will be the first ever Last Man Standing Match in PWP: Abu Colossus Vs. Preston Maxwell. If a challenger cannot get to his feet to answer a 10 count from the referee, than his opponent will be declared the winner! This is not just a matter of who is the better competitor but also a matter of pride for Colossus as he has little patience for the games that Maxwell likes to play.

As a result of his heinous actions, Donnie Peppercricket has been fined a sum of $1000 and is suspended from competition for the duration of November.

PWP Heavyweight Champion “Babyface” Tony Cortez will be defending his title against an opponent that will be named in the coming weeks!

Thanks to all the fans who support us and we will see you on November 13th!

From Ric Flair to Trevor Murdoch to…. Who is the best talkers in the Midwest today?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 2, 2010

Two legends that have countless hours providing fans with great promos Jim Ross and Ric Flair. (Photo from JRSBARBQ.COM)

Jim Ross wrote of  Ric Flair “ Back in the day, and still today for that matter, no one could cut a more impassioned promo than the future Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Flair dressed the part, lived the part 24/7, and, seemingly, became the “Nature Boy. Credit Jim Ross’s website here.

By Brian Kelley

On my long drive to school in St Louis I have a LOT of time to think about stuff and when I am not thinking about my homework, I have my mind working towards pro wrestling. This past week my thoughts took me to who in the Midwest is the best on the Mic? Who can your attention the most during a promo?

If you take a look at most of my favorite wrestlers they all can talk. From my very favorite Ric Flair to the Honky Tonk Man and back the Midwest’s own Harley Race they could all talk you to the show.

Lets take a look at 20 of the  most interesting wrestlers in today’s game here in the Midwest in my opinion, Feel free to disagree or add your thoughts but these are the top wrestlers who I Love to get hear from and the list is  in no certain order.

Before we go to the 20 plus  superstars lets give props to the three time WWE Tag Team Champion Trevor Murdoch who I felt was very underrated during his time at the big show.

First lets look at a promo from ALL-TIME greats Dusty Rhodes and Harley Race when he congratulated Trevor Murdoch for his signing with WWE.

Now lets take a flash back at a promo from Murdoch with his tag team partner the late Lance Cade as they were set to arrive in WWE. Some good stuff for sure.

1) Bloody Harker Dirge

The Vampire from the Midwest, Dirge has the look, can wrestle and is works his character to a T….or maybe he is a real vampire. Either way one of the best to get a promo from period.

2) Travis Cook-

The Manager of Champions or as my friend Herb Simmons calls him Travis “the Crook” Cook but no matter what you call him you will have no choice but to hear what he has to say. A link from wrestlings past, Cook knows how to get under the skin of wrestlers and fans alike.

3) Bailey Mannix-

In your face, no nonsense wrestler can talk the talk and walk the walk. Great in front of people and can bust out a promo in one take with out blinking an eye.

4) Michael Strider

– If you ask me this guy is the closest in the Midwest to have the same feel as my favorite Flair as anyone, and I am not the only one. Strider is believable in his words and can make you care for him in a heartbeat but just like Flair if he is in a foul mood can drive the fans in a frenzy.

5) The Northstar Express Darin Corbin and Ryan Cruz –

The Northstar Express is so good that you always want more……

Ask me who my favorite to interview and to work with in a promo and I promise you that I will no doubt have these two right among the top of that list. Charismatic and you never know what they will come up with. They deserve to be on a national stage.

6) Gary Jackson

The total package who never got that one break, Jackson may very well be the most loved wrestler in St Louis. With classic lines and his golden rules the geourgous one is always one that you will want to  listen too.

7) Jayden Draigo

To be honest I didn’t know who Draigo was until this year. He quickly gathered my attention with the way he handled himself in the middle of the ring, drawing the ire of the fans without missing a beat.

8) #1 Brett Young –

Like the Northstar Express, Young has charisma to burn. A great talker he is able to do whatever is thrown his way be it serious or comedy it is always a honor to interview him…or at least that’s what he lets me know when we are done.

9) The Mississippi Madman –

Listen for this quote from the Madman at the interview “ You just saved a lot of lives, because there is going to be a lot of people running because the Madmans coming” Love it!

No wrestler in the Midwest can have the fans in the palm of their hands like the Mississippi Madman. His look, along with his mic skills is the reason why he would be one of the wrestlers that I would choose if I was a promoter.

10) BroMance Jordan McEntrye & Knight Wagner with Eryn –

Cocky brash and always entertaining this tag team is very underrated in the Midwest, they have a great look that catches the fans attention right away.  

11) Mr Late Nite

The Midwest wrestling agent has an ax to grind and never seems to be in a good mood. That is until he is making fun of the fans who come to see their heroes in action.

12) Curley-

You can’t miss him with all those 3 stooges’ tattoos but then he gets on the mic for a promo or before his match and laughter is surly to come. 13) Matt Cage –  

Cage is always willing to think outside the box. The scary thing about Cage is I believe he is only scratched the surface of how good he can be.

14) The Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter)

The 2009 MWR Tag team of the Year burst onto the scene making a name for themselves in and out of the ring with some great promos for their battles.

15) Attitude Inc (Guy Smith, Spencer Powers, and Michael Shard)

The trio of Smith, Powers and Shard bring to the table great wrestling action and a look that gets the fans and opponents attention quickly. They currently hold the NMW Tag titles while Shard is in the hunt for the NMW Title at November Reign. Look for great things to continue for these there.

16) Chad Mylan-

The man who many claim is the voice of 3XW has grew a chip on his shoulder. Leading his number one man Kwong into the ring to gain championships. He is a force at not only 3XW but MECW as well.

I am going to share with you a promo from 3XW’S monthly internet show Outside the ring from this past October. Look for Chad at the 5:16 mark into the show as he celebrates a big victory along with his protégé Ricky Kwong. Please take the time to watch the whole episode and add the 3XW website to your favorites to check out the new Outside the Ring.

17) Bobby Houston –

While many wonder what we do at MWR, “The Business Man” is not one of them. He knows that the site is out there to get the word out about wrestling, but more importantlyto Houston,  is MORE coverage for himself. In the ring on the mic or outside the ring for a promo Houston is all about the Business and that business is to let you know that he is the best in the Midwest.

18) The Magic Man-

If you have not seen this legend from Japan then shame on you. I have had a lot of fun working with the Magic Man every time we get the camera in front of him. The fans MAY love him or hate him but they always and I mean always remember him

19) Steven J Girthy-

The classic manager in every sense. Successful check, rich check, loud mouth check. The truth of the matter is the man is good at his job and that is leading wrestling’s top wrestlers into battle.

20) AJ Williams-

One has to see AJ do wrestling impersonations to get a true feel of this young wrestlers talent. Don’t believe me then just ask Bill Apter.

MWR Hall of Fame Video

Hype Gotti and Tony Cortez formed the charismatic tag team Simply the Best. The two would hold onto the PWP Tag titles but we were always prepared to see what these two would say when we got them behind the camera. Lets look back at this classic interview.

Last but not least I leave you with a promo that we did with the 2008 Missouri Wrestling Revival wrestler of the Year “ The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. I took this to work to show some residents at the behavior unit that I worked with. The resident LOVE wrestling and my mother has been a nurse for over 30 years at the very same home.

My mothers reply to me after watching Wyatt blast , “Maybe you shouldn’t get involved in this wrestling, you’r going to get hurt.” …….SWEET

I now share with you that video that caused my mother such concern.

4 States, 14 Shows, 4,265 miles and 74 hours on the road in 3 months at MWR.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 26, 2010

With a plethora of great shows  these  past few months,  it has been hard to keep up with all the exciting  news flash, photos and happenings around the Midwest.

MWR has been active with some of the top stars in the country while meeting many of you the great fans, some for the first time while others we know quite well.

We have spent almost every weekend on the road covering the top promotions in the Midwest.

Let’s take a look at some of the sights of the past few months with MWR, the Fans and Superstars around the Midwest.

August 7- Granite City Illinois- High Voltage Wrestling

HVW returned from their summer break to with top stars Kahagas taking on Trent Stone , the Midwest Sweet heart Santana G going up against her arch rival Amy Hennig and the Great Cheyenne with MsChif watching.

Would it be just by chance that the MWR Wrestler of the Week was MTV’S Dan Walsh who would give away a MWR T-Shirt in August only to see him get the HVW Livewire title soon after? Hey Dan we are just playing, you earned it….with a handful of Trent Stones tights.

August 21 – Council Bluffs Iowa – Pro Wrestling Phoenix

The trips to Iowa seem to take so long to get their, which has been a reason for us to scale back from going to PWP and 3XW. One problem they are so GOOD!! MWR fans don’t worry we have no plans what so ever to stop covering these two exciting promotions.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix delivered on this evening with some exciting wrestling action. We were on hand when Axel Greece assists Ryan Slade and Zac James cheat Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket out of the PWP Tag Titles. The show also saw the war rage on between Abu Colossus and Preston Maxwell.

The MWR Wrestler of the Night was the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez was able to survive the onslaught on Jayden Draigo to retain the championship in a feud that has become quite personal.

In the near future look for a phot recap from their last show in October  from PWP/MWR Photographer Gary Giaffoglione

August 28- Lincoln Illinois – Pro Wrestling Epic

The Balloon festival in Lincoln Illionis is a BIG deal and with PWE providing a FREE show if you attend you can not miss it.

PWE delivered with the biggest match in years in the Midwest literally when the PWE title was on the line between the Mississippi Madman taking on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick led by MR Late Nite.

Ohhhs and AHHHS were heard as the two behemoths battle for supermecy and who is truly the top big man. Nothing was settled decisively, but the crowd went home to tell their friends about the Madman and Future. The match that shook the Midwest .

“The Kid” Evan Money was the MWR Wrestler of the Week as he went on to defeat Eric Allen with a frog splash.

September 4th – Kansas City Kansas- Metro Pro Wrestling

We were thrilled to support Metro Pro Wrestling for several reasons; first off the wrestling scene in the KC market has been dry for some time now. With Metro Pro Sports having TV, showcasing several of the top stars in the country today and oh yeah our former partner in crime Josh Ray is the current ring announcer for this upstart promotion. Metro Pro proved to be a great time with a great upside going into 2010.

September 11 – Waterloo Illinois – Independent Hardcore Wrestling

IHW has been on a roll in 2010 with some great matches in front of a packed crowd. On this night we were thrilled to debut the Tony Kozina MWR Trading Card. Kozina is one of the most well diverse and exciting wrestlers today. During the night Kozina wrestled one of the Midwest most impressive young men in the game Chris L.O.G.A.N

Let’s take a look at a Video recap of this great show from IHW

September 22- Olney Illinois – IWA Unlimited

Our first trip to Olney lived up to the hype that has been told to me. A weekly FREE Wednesday show how can you go wrong. A great small venue filled with some of the top young talent in the area.

Everyone that I talked to loved the stars of IWA U and looked forward to the hump day of the week. If you have the day off and live in STL I urge you to take the drive to see what you are missing.

September 25 – Hillsdale Missouri- MMWA-SICW

A great day for the community of Hillsdale as MMWA-SICW teamed up with the Hillsdale Police force to provide a free wrestling show. MMWA-SICW are always fan friendly and if a free outdoor show was not enough, the team work also offered free BBQ and back packs filled with treats from the police force given to them by the stars of MMWA-SICW.

The MWR Wrestler of the day was none other than Ace Hawkins. Ace fresh off of his appearance at Ring of Honor not only gave away a free MWR shirt but bicycles from the kids and some awesome ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame shirts before having a great match against Brandon Espinosa.

September 25- Wood River Illinois – MECW Double shot evening

One of the best kept secrets in the Midwest, is the fact that some of the best talent in Iowa makes the long trip to the STL to go to prove that they are among the best in the Midwest. Jimmy Rockwell, Devin Carter, Zach Thompson, Ryan Slade  and even self proclaimed  wrestling genius Chad Mylan has put an end to Gabriel Brimstones stranglehold  in the Independent title when his man Kwong won the belt in recent months.

Iowa is not the only area that is well represented as the upstate Illinois wrestlers BroMance (Knight Wagner and Jordan McEntrye)  with Erin currently holds onto the MECW Tag Championship and Matt Mayday, Mike Anthony and Chris Logan have all brought their own flavor in the company.

On this night the MWR Wrestler of the Night was the champ himself, Bailey Mannix. Mannix is still one of the most underrated wrestlers in the game today.

October 2- Kansas City Kansas – Metro Pro Wrestling

Metro Pro Wrestling heated up with the brand new Metro Pro Wrestling TV Champion Trevor Murdoch taking charge. With an appearance from wrestling great Harley Race the fans where able to see some of the great from the past mixed in with some of the best today.

What has the best Wrestler on Gods Green earth Harley Race along with Ethan Wright and Jeff Strong so mad, could it be because of something that former MWR Josh Ray is doing? See it on METRO SPORTS in Kansas City (Photo Credit Bill Smith )

If fans in Kansas City want the best bang for their buck they need to give Metro Pro Wrestling a chance. You won’t regret it.

October 9- Eldon Missouri – World League Wrestling

One of the biggest nights of the year brought several of the most influential men in the game today. Co-Owner of Pro Wrestling Noah was in attendance along with Harley Race and Cauliflower Alley Club’s Karl Lauer. The MWR Wrestler of the Night was Midwest knockout Lucy Mendez who gave away the very first MWR pink t-shirt.

October 10- Marceline Missouri – Modern Championship Wrestling

Just down the road from my house was a new promotion was a rare Sunday show that featured local favorite The Iceman. Brian Blade won the belt at the very first show and has been a thorn in promoter Dustin Watson’s side ever since.

October 16- Glen Carbon Illinois – NWA Dynamo/High Voltage Wrestling

We were on hand to present the High Voltage Wrestling tag champs the Hooligans the 2009 MWR Tag team of the Year plaques. To be honest we offered the exciting tag team Full Contact Dojo  (Jonathan Gresham and Ric King) the chance to be the MWR Wrestlers of the Week to throw out a t-shirt as a way of being nice.

In a shocking development they defeated The Hooligans to become the NEW HVW Tag Championship . No HVW Champion was safe as “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt defeated Kahagas and Dan Walsh won the HVW Livewire belt.

Look for a photo recap as well and interviews with all of the new HVW Champions here at MWR in the future.

October 23 – Springfield Illinois – New Midwest Wrestling

NMW invited us and invited us and I am glad that they did, we had debut once before and was very impressed and happy to have added them in our NMW Coverage area. The last show I photographed the most dangerous ( and fun matches) to be a photographer at in my carrer during the4 team NMW Tag Team scramble match and returned for the biggest Battle Royal, rumble style of the year for NMW. All for the enjoyment of you the fans.

The MWR Wrestler of the Week was up and comer Christian Rose. Look for more information about this exciting night of wrestling at MWR soon.

There you have MWR fans, the itinerary of where Dubray and I have been in just the past tthree months. We may not be able to keep up with the miles that the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling does but who can, that man is a machine.

I would like to thank you the fans, the wrestlers, and the promoters for making

Dubi meets the PWP Fans 8-21-10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 5, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

Our trip to Council Bluffs, Iowa turned out to be on a beautiful day. With the fall season upon us and school around the corner for both us we knew we had to make our way to Council Bluffs Iowa just in case we were unable attend later due to time.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix blessed to have a great photographer in Gary  Giaffoglione  there on most shows so we always have a MWR presence at a PWP show. PWP has always been great to work with and if you remember they are the premier promotion for fresh baked cookies at their concession stand. We took home eight rice krispy treats if that tells you anything. Hey they are that good

Brian was excited about seeing Gary once again, and had brought him up a complete set of the MWR Trading cards that have several that feature his photo work such as the Mike Sydal, Sir Bradley Charles and the chilling Jeremy Wyatt card that looks a little sinister. Gary made the trip worth it by giving me a hug (You know I need my attention, I am Dubray of course) so the night had started off right.

Prior to saying our hellos to the staff, we decided to find the restroom that was located in the hallway. Before I got done Brian was talking to some fans that were there an hour early waiting for the doors to open. Brian told them what we were doing and Nancy stated that her favorite was the BIG Abu Colossus. She stated that every time he came out prior to his match she liked to get up and do a dance to let him know that she was on his side. We promised her that if Abu was there on the night she would be among the Dubi Meets the fans.

The doors opened at 6:30 so off the work I went to find fans that were interested in being a part of this edition of Dubi meets the fans. Brian and PWP must have advertised it good or they remembered the last time we did it at PWP and didn’t want to miss it this time because there was a ton of people wanting to get their picture with the PWP Superstars.

Our MWR Wrestler of the night was none other than the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez wore the MWR shirt prior to starting the night off with impromptu win against Zac James.  Before the match started he threw the shirt to Ben Castillo from Fremont, NE. During the intermission he took the time to meet the young fan.

One fan that was a lot of fun to watch during the matches told me his name was Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist from Glenwoood Iowa. When the wrestlers would kick out just in time for the final 3 count he was really into it. He wanted Jayden Draigo but Draigo I was told has been a terror at PWP for some time and can be uncontrollable at times so Brian asked if he could choose someone else. He quickly chose fan favorite Matty Starr.

Ron Blair had no hesitation to who he wanted to have his picture with it was the ever popular Donnie Peppercricket.

Young Michael Barnes from Council Bluffs Iowa was at PWP to see the exciting Jaysin Strife in action. Strife was more than happy to get his picture with Michael.

A regular of Pro Wrestling Phoenix was John Striffler from Omaha Nebraska who told me that he had been a big of wrestling for over sixty years. John told me that he always enjoyed coming to Pro Wrestling Phoenix and tried to make every show. John told me that he was a fan of Chris Havius who was one half of the PWP Tag Team Champions along with Donnie Peppercricket.

John Striffler and Chris Havius (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

As we were taking pictures I was told that little bitty Kaycee’s favorite wrestler was Tony Cortez. Cortez was nearby and snapped the shot of the youngest fan to ever take part in the Dubi meets the fans.

Kaycee and PWP Champion Tony Cortez

The last time we were at PWP Matty Star was in high demand and on this night it was no different. Starr has been making waves in 2010 where ever we go and we are not the only ones that noticed because just like Daniel “The Power Deaf” Gilchrist, Joshua Pope was all smiles as he posed with Matty Starr.

Abu Colossus had his hands full on this night against Preston Maxwell but before his match after intermission he took a snap shot with Nathan Gilchrist.

Nathan Gilchrist and Abu

Adam was a fan of the PWP Tag Team Champions, Havius and Peppercricket and may have been the last person to get their pictures taken with the duo as champs. They would take on the Beautiful Bodies, and would retain the titles but you will have to wait for the recap here at MWR (Or click on the PWP Website if you can’t wait) to find out who would leave Battle of the Phoenix 2010 with the belts.

Chris Havius Adam and Donnie Peppercricket (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

The last fan that I will introduce you to was really excited to be at PWP and was very excited to have their pictures taken with the PWP wrestlers was Mike Firk. Mike would ask to have his picture taken with Matty Starr, Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket as well as catching me after the show excited about getting his picture taken with the lovely  Angelus Layne and Jaysin Strife.

I looked around to see who my pick on this evening would be and noticed that Sir Bradley Charles had just got done meeting the fans and selling the awesome looking SBC shirt to a fan and had a moment so I asked him to be my Dubi Meets the fans choice and Jaysin Strife was nearby so why not add him as well.

Fans I hope that you enjoyed this edition of Dubi Meets the PWP fans and for more pictures of these fans with their favorite wrestler please click here to see them.

We hope to have a full recap of this show along with MWR’S Introducing Angelus Layne.

Till next time be good and I hope to see you at the show.

After toying with Angelus Layne, Jayden Draigo is despicable when he takes a cheap shot after the match. (Photo Credit Gary Giaffoglione)

2.) Jayden Draigo defeated Angelus Layne. This was a case of Draigo toying with Layne, beating her mercilessly and refused to pin her. Instead he constantly dolled out more punishment before finally pinning her. Afterwards he cowardly attacked her with his Kendo stick.

3.) In what most would consider an upset, Preston Maxwell defeated Jimmy Rockwell with the Gator Roll Choke. Maxwell used the move in May to defeat Supafli and now used it to submit Rockwell.

4.) Matty Starr earned his biggest win in PWP ever when he pinned “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt. Afterwards, Wyatt showed his anger by hitting Starr with The Lightning Spiral and berating him. After intermission, Matty came back out and told Wyatt he wasn’t finished with him!

5.) “The Passion” Zac James defeated Supafli. He brought a chair into the ring and when the referee took it from him, he smashed the clipboard that contains his PWP Anytime Anywhere Contract over Supalfi’s head and got the pin. James still has the contract that he can use for any PWP title shot and any time he chooses.

8.) In a match that will go down as one of PWP’s best ever, “Babyface” Tony Cortez defeated Jaysin Strife to retain his PWP Heavyweight Championship. During the match, Strife was down on the outside and Jayden Draigo came out and superkicked Cortez in the face! Strife did not see this and covered Cortez, but Tony was able to kick out. After the match, Tony demanded that Draigo face him, and Draigo refused and talked more trash on Cortez before leaving.

Thanks to all the fans for coming out for a great night of action! PWP will kick off our summer tour on July 24th at Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene (just down the road from Horseshoe Casino) in Council Bluffs, IA! This will be an outdoor show and it is going to be a blast! Directions and details to come very soon!

Pro Wrestling Phoenix WARGAMES May 22 Photo Recap

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 6, 2010

I am about to share with you a photo recap of Pro Wrestling Phoenix’s May card that was headlined by a 58 minute War Games Cage match between the Murder Militia and PWP Fan favorites.

Earlier in the night was a hard hitting ladder match between Jimmy Rockwell, Zac James and the powerful David Clark. Sir Bradley Charles was kind enough to wear a MWR Shirt to ring to throw to one lucky PWP Fan while sending Stephen Saint out of PWP just as fast as it took him to take off his shirt.

Fans also got to see the return of the 2008 MWR Tag team of the Year the Northstar Express take on the ultra flamboyant The Beautiful Bodies while PWP Legend Hype Gotti return to take on PWP Fan favorite Arik Cannon.

It was great to see my good friend and PWP Photographer Gary Giaffoglione while being able to see the hard work that the fine people at PWP did pay off by having a red hot crowd to witness a great night of wrestling.

I would like to thank Pro Wrestling Phoenix for allowing MWR to be a part of the show and do not forget this Saturday there is only one place to be at in Council Bluffs, as PWP Returns for this weekend .

Till then let’s enjoy a photo recap from last months exciting show.

7.) “Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket defeated The Murder Militia: Jayden Draigo, Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Joey Daniels & surprise entrant Arik Cannon! Cannon shocked the PWP audience by coming out as the 5th member of Murder Militia and attacking Tony Cortez right away! The match was an absolute brawl, wild and bloody, with so many crazy things that it really needs to be seen to be believed! The match ended when most of the Murder Militia were locked out of the cage and the PWP faithful hit move after move on Draigo, ending it with a huge shot to the head by Jaysin Strife with Draigo’s own kendo stick, then gaining the pinfall.

It was an absolutely amazing night of action, thanks to all the fans for making it a huge night to remember!
Here’s to five more years of PWP and don’t forget June 12, 2010 is the next event,

PWP fans! What a phenomenal evening the 5th Anniversary Spectacular turned out to be! We start the next chapter of PWP on June 12, 2010! PWP Management wants to get back to the basics of athletic competition and sportsman-like conduct! For that reason, we have signed the following main event for June 12th:

PWP Heavyweight Championship Match:
“Babyface” Tony Cortez © Vs. Jaysin Strife

These two men have been on both sides of the fence in PWP’s five-year history and they were both victorious last month in the Wargames Cage. Strife has not received a rematch ever since he lost the PWP Title last November. Cortez will be looking to prove that he is the best PWP has to offer. This will be one for the ages!

PWP Tag Team Championship Match:
#1 Brett Young & Joey Daniels © Vs. Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket

Havius & Peppercricket have been demanding another Tag Team Title shot for months and after their victory in May, PWP officials have granted it to them. Brett Young took Joey Daniels under his wing many months ago and this is their chance to show the fans what Young has taught and what Joey has learned. You can bet there will still be hard feelings from last month as well!

“The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt will be at the armory on June 12th. What will his mood be after being tied to the ropes and forced to watch his team lose from only feet away?

In May, “The Passion” Zac James won a shot at any PWP title, redeemable at any time. Will he cash in his shot in June? Or will he bide his time?

Sir Bradley Charles set a record in PWP, and then immediately broke his own record when he beat Stephen Saint in about 20 seconds, then beat him again in an immediate rematch in about 15 seconds! He will be in action June 12th!

Will Jayden Draigo be able to even show his face in PWP after being destroyed by all five members of Team PWP in the Wargames match? Be there June 12th to find out!

Also in action: Abu Colossus, Jimmy Rockwell, David Clark, Matty Starr, Preston Maxwell, Supafli, The Beautiful Bodies & more!

A look at the first half of 2010 in the MWR Coverage area. Nominate your favorite.

We are very close to the half year of 2010 and what a year it has been!

In the past few months both WWE and TNA have hosted PPV’S with WWE’S Elimination Chamber and TNA’S lockdown that was also headline with a fan interaction that allowed fans to meet stars such as Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Rob Vam Dam, Jeff Hardy and most of the rest of the TNA roster.

Old school fans can be happy that they have had a chance to meet the stars that brought memories that will last a lifetime when at TNA’S legends main event brought in the biggest stars of the 80’s and beyond with Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Sting.

The fun would keep coming when you were able meet other stars such as former WWE World Champion Bob Backland, Roddy Piper, Road Warrior Animal, Jimmy Snuka along with several other greats during Wrestling Legends on Tour.

On the Indy front I have to believe that everyone involved with their promotions needs to feel thrilled with the support and attendance from the fans as attendance and action has picked up for the most part at most shows.

Former WLW Wrestler  Dennis T McHawes released an autobiography called “Blood Tables and Chairs that allows fans to get a glimpse of the Indy scene not to long ago.

Mike Sydal continues his rise to the National spotlight after winning the PWI Rookie of the Year he followed that up by wrestling during WRESTLEMANIA weekend with Ring of Honor in a six man tag team race and earned the pin fall for his team.

Will Metro Pro Wrestling jump over the competition in 2010 with their debut at Memorial Hall on June 4th?

Till then lets look at 2010 shortly and what to forward to.

Let’s start out alphabetical.

3XWrestlingThe 2008 MWR Promotion of the year continues their standard of excellence with some great action. 3XW Heavyweight Champion Jeremy Wyatt and Ring of Honor a World Champion Tyler Black earned a standing ovation in April when the two went to a draw. Rory Fox who came close in 09 by taking out “The Belt Collector” won the May “Gauntlet for the Gold”. This could easily set up Wyatt vs. Fox feud part 2, one that would be great for the fans.

3XW Pure Wrestling Champion Kraig Kessaman has been rolling through the company using the deadly “Nordic Spike” maneuver and has not been pinned at 3XW in 23 months. While 3XW cruiserweight Champion Jimmy Rockwell came very close in defeating 3XW Champion Jeremy Wyatt at the Over the top show earlier this month

On a sad note the very popular tag team The High Flyers of Zach Thompson and Mike Sydal was forced by Todd Countryman to go against each other in a loser leaves town match that saw Thompson earned quite possibly the biggest win his short career by defeating the smoking red hot Sydal.

All American Pro Wrestling – Exciting feuds , shocking moments and near riots mixed in with former WWE and TNA Superstars brought AAPW among the top of the most talked about promotions in the area coverage.

The year started off with the very popular Edmund “Livewire” McGuire holding the AAPW Championship. During a title defense against the popular and powerful Mississippi Madman that would soon end. McGuire’s mountain to retain was huge but the backstabbing of McGuire’s best friend Shane Rich during the match would cost him the title and a feud is set to happen anytime. Rich was suspended for his actions. The fans and McGuire have been itching for a rematch BUT…

The Madman would find himself in the fire quickly as the 2008 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt came knocking for the belt. The Madman would retain but not before a near riot almost broke out. AAPW had no other option but to sign a rematch between the two at the very next show. Problems arose when Rich talked his way into the match making it a 3way and capitalizing by taking home the belt.

As of press time AAPW is set to bring to the Midwest WWE’S Jerry Lawler and Kevin Thorn and more AAPW matches at RENT ONE Park on May 22 in prior to a minor league baseball game. AAPW has also brought in TNA’S Andy Douglas and WWE/ECW’S Simon Dean…. We can all look forward to McGuire vs. Rich in the second half of the year.

High Voltage Wrestling – What High Voltage Wrestling lacked in amount of shows they made up for it in quality of matches and continuing their tradition of debuting some of the top stars in the St Louis area. During HVW’s first year they brought you “The Internaininal Superstar” Kahagas, TNA’S Santana G, The Hooligans, Matt Cage, Zero Gravity and Tony Kozina and in their second year they brought to you the very exciting Ryan Phoenix, Flash Flannigan, Dan the Manand Sir Bradley Charles.

Kahagas vs. Flash Flannigan was an instant hit and when the HVW Tag Champions the Hooligans went against the KC Killers the ropes would break but the action would not. Santana G would earn the respect of one of the greatest women wrestlers in the world MsChif and earn the respect of her and the two would team up once again.

Young Brandon Aarons would get a huge win for the fan favorites by defeating fellow young star Mike Sydal for the HVW Livewire Championship.

The HVW Champion has been defending the title around world and looks to face on all challenges in 2010.

Independent Hardcore Wrestling– IHW has been filled with packed shows with action throughout the building. Filled with stars who do not get as much hype like Billy McNeil, Steve Kennedy, Eric Allen, Mephisto and Brandon Aarons they have made themselves a legit promotion and giving the fans their money’s worth.

Former TNA Star Mickie Knuckles and the Great Cheyenne continue the improvement of the  women wrestling Midwest while Eric Allen’s exciting Illinois state Championship shocked the Midwest. IHW Champion Brandon Aarons match with Kennedy was an instant classic. MR Late Nite looks to make his mark in the Midwest to finish off 2010.

IHW heats up the summer in 2010 with a stacked card on June 12th in Dupo Illinois when Mickie Knuckles returns to take on Mia Martinez, SLAM The Canadian Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Tony Kozina will take on exciting Bailey Mannix; Champions will collide when IHW Champion Aarons will meet IHW Illinois Champion Allen in a street fight.

IWA Productions – One of the biggest announcements of the first half had to do with IWA P bringing at their free Wednesdays show last week when non other than ICP came into bring fans to their feet. So much excitement that IWA P had to turn fans away do to a fire code. ALL for free.

In January they brought in former WWE Superstar the Honky Tonk Man and their students stepped up to provide a much talked about match between Christian Rose and Danny Cannon ladder match.

A mixture of free shows and paid shows that has also showcased Matt Cage taking on former WWE Champion Eugene, Ladies star Ann Brookstone along with “Homicidal” Steven Davis provide the fans with some top notch excitement.

Metro East Championship Wrestling– Wrestling in Woodriver provides the fans with an exciting night to hang with friends and family. The promotion had a set back when the MECW had to announce that champion Mannix was unable to defend due to an injury. Mannix though respect for his talent was hated for his actions meant that possibly one of the fan favorites such as Devin Carter or the “Kid” Evan Money could get their chance as MECW Gold.

Imagine the disappointment when bad guy Eric Allen was able to win the 8 man tournament and gain his second title in months. Who will be able to take the title back from EA? Will it be Carter in his rematch on the 22nd, or will Gabriel Brimstone, Brian Scrilla, or the returning Shawn Santel come back to glory.

MECW Tag team champions The Bayou Outlaws are one of the most underappreciated teams in the Midwest and loved by the fans.

On a National level MECW can hang their head up high Barry Ryte in his opportunity to appear at the 14th annual ECWA Super 8 Tournament later this summer on Sat. July 10, 2010 in Newark DE.

MMWA-SICWThe 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year has seen some exciting new faces and old friends join the veterans of the South Broadway Athletic Club. Impressive Dave Vaughn has taken on all challenges in his way including the powerful Donnovan Ruddick.
Speaking of Ruddick the Manager of Champions Travis Cook looks to take him to the top as he has signed him to his stable “The Connections.” With the skills of Ruddick and the mind of Cook these two could be unstoppable.

Brandon Espinosa has returned with a vengeance and is currently the MMWA-SICW JR Heavyweight Champion as well as the MMWA-SICW Battle Royal Champion. Will he set his sights on becoming a Triple Crown championship?

Life is not all good in the world of Travis Cook; he has agitated the returning MMWA-SICW Superstar Ron Powers and Danny Boy. In Cooks favor is the fact that Gary Jackson has also wanted a piece of his old rival Powers.

On a National scene the St Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame that is located at the SBAC presented Ric Flair, Bobby Hennan, Dory Funk JR and Baron Von Raschke with their HOF Plaques at the TNA Fan interaction.

What Midwest Superstars will make their debut at MMWA-SICW in the rest of 2010? I can not wait to find out.

New Midwest Wrestling – The newest promotion at MWR, New Midwest have been around for a long time entertaining fans in Sprinfield Illinois.

The NMW Roster brings together an exciting roster with Cory Carter, Guy Smith, Ryan Phoenix, Dan the Man and Blake Steel as well the New Midwest Wrestling Champion Jonathan Magnus.

New Midwest Wrestling returns this week with Capital Punishment 2010 as Magnus have his title threatened when Rip Mystic comes after him.

NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling– NWA Dynamo has slowly been building steam heading into the second half of 2010. Home of the NWA Missouri Champion Davey Vega and NWA Central States Championship Mark Sterling they brought us the battle of Champions when the two took on each other during their May 1 show where Vega tapped out to the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

NWA Missouri Champion Vega will look to get back on track when he takes on Dragon Gate star Kyle O’Reilly on May 22nd.

Like I said a quiet year so far for this top promotion but look for them to sprint to the top in 2010.

NWA Supreme – MWR was honored to be invited to check out this exciting promotion early this year and we were impressed. The giant Bear ST Pierre and the electrifying Da Cobra brings to the ring a fast paced wrestling show with a punch in the Face.

NWA Supreme Champion Da Cobra has been red hot and will look to add Danny Cannon on his list of men he sent home packing. Bear ST Pierre has survived the onslaught on Jeremy Wyatt and De Andre King and Guy Smith and on May 29 he will have the formidable foe of Christian Rose looking to take home the title.

. The Hooligans and the Hybrids tore each other apart in the cage and it looks to only getting hotter as the summer comes around.

Fan have to be excited as the NWA Supreme brings you the NWA Midwest Championship match between the Shiek with Joey Eastman and Silas Young as well on the 29th.

Pro Wrestling Epic – One of the youngest promotions in the MWR Coverage area has been working hard to get respect. Signing some of the top names in the sport they boast some of the top talents in the Midwest today.

One fallback to that statement is that the PWE Champion Keith Walker has been in Japan meaning that he is unable to defend the title as needed. Even with Walker out the states they have the new PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons and the PWE tag team Champions Zero Gravity on their roster.

At their only show of the year the night started of with Mark Sterling as the PWE US Champion. Sterling defeated Mike Sydal then announced to the crowd that he was not done. He would be more than happy to beat anyone else in the locker room. Aarons showed true heart by answering the call even though he was defeated by Wyatt earlier in the night. Amazingly Aarons would defeat Sterling and become the PWE US Champion.

PWE and Aarons returns with their biggest test to date when PWE US Champion Brandon Aarons takes on Ring of Honor World Champion Tyler Black go at it in a match that you will not want to miss.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix– The faction known as Murder Milita looked to have PWP on their knees and in total control at the start of the year. The Murder Militia (Jeremy Wyatt, #1 Brett Young, Mark Sterling, Joey Daniels & Jayden Draigo) would find that Team PWP (PWP Heavyweight Champion ”Babyface” Tony Cortez, Abu Colossus, Jaysin Strife, Chris Havius & Donnie Peppercricket) was not going to back down for nothing.

The bomb is about to go off in the name of WAR Games this coming Saturday. Will the Militia continue to leave the PWP Wrestlers and fans in fear heading into 2010?
Young David Clark, Jimmy Rockwell and Zac James is set to battle in a ladder match for the chance to get a chance at any PWP Championship that night as well.

The PWP Champion Babyface Tony Cortez has defeated Jeremy Wyatt, Joey Daniels Jimmy Rockwell and Jaysin Strife since becoming the Champion last December.

World League WrestlingHarley Race’s WLW took their time to get back in the game in 2010 but it was well worth the wait.

Starting off the year they had a tournament to crown new WLW Tag Champions and lo and behold Steve Fender and Mark Sterling walked away with the coveted tag team titles. Sterling and Fender are two of the most rounded wrestlers in singles, together they are scary good.

On the Singles from the WLW Title has been filled with action as the powerful Trent Stone held the title till in front of over 300 people in Richmond former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch pinned him in a leather strap match to regain the title.

It won’t be easy for Murdoch as Stone, Brian Breaker along with impressive young stars Jack Gamble, Ryan Drago, the Cancun Kid and Eathon Wright will all have their eyes to get to the top of the Mountain.

The WLW Ladies Champion Amy Hennig finds herself with competition all around as TNA’S Santana G earned a DQ victory from Hennig and the unknown Angelus Layne made her debut at WLW Keokuk IA. Some of the most exciting matches in women’s wrestler may well come from WLW.

That is a look at some of the promotions in the first half of the year. We are asking for the Promotions, Wrestlers and Fans to send in their thoughts on who was the best of the best in the first half year at MWR.

There will not be a winner announced for this but this will help the MWR Awards committee to not forget in the 2010 MWR Awards who is deserving. In each category there is some strong competition if the vote was to be voted on today I could not guess who would walk away the winners.
