Ron Powers Explodes on Attila Khan- The Wylde’s Cause World Wide Drama

Note: Patrick Brandmeyer and Brian Kelley arrived late to this event.

Your ring announcer was Drew Abbenhaus; your referees were Nick Ridenour, Jay King, & Denny Thomas.

Bobby D vs. “The Enforcer” Jimmy D: I somehow suspect this may not make it to television, so the particulars of the match may be lost to the ages. All I know is that Bobby won by pinfall in 5:11 (thanks Drew & Doug).

Karim Brigante vs. “The Freestyle Phenom” Jay Howard(w/ Roy Lewis & “The Natural” J.A. Fair): I feel like I’m doomed to eternally miss Fair’s official appearances on wrestling shows; I’ve crossed paths with him at shows in the past, but never when he’s actually booked. I look forward to seeing this one as it was probably a good one, judging by the participants…guess I’ll find out in due time. Reportedly Brigante scored the victory after a roaring elbow in 6:13 (again, thanks Drew & Doug).

“Your Canadian Hero” Sean Vincent & Johnny Blade vs. “Volatile” Curtis Wylde & “Unstable” Dave Vaughn(w/ Wyldefyre): Given the nicknames, that rulebreaker team seems like a surprisingly good fit. Vincent and Vaughn have the current feud, but the history between Vincent and Wylde is extensive and well-documented.
SICWAUGLL-7

SICWAUGLL-10

SICWAUGLL-30

Blade ran afoul of Vaughn in July in more ways than one, as Vaughn scored a cheap win over him via low blow. Vincent & Wylde brawled out of the building…THAT would have been a fine time for me to walk in the door if I’d arrived a few minutes later.

SICWAUGLL-34

Wyldefyre tripped up Blade and Vaughn capitalized with the double-underhook DDT for the win in 9:49.

Moondog Rover vs. Waco(w/ Big Daddy): Circumstances beyond his control have left Big Daddy reaching for proteges, it would seem. Ax Allwardt has been MIA; Bubba Troll is out with injury issues and Vaughn was cut loose from the stable a few months back.

SICWAUGLL-47

SICWAUGLL-45

Of course Moondog remains OVAH~!. but the impeccably-attired Big Daddy had to be sure his new charge made a strong impression.

Moondog nearly won with his version of the World’s Strongest Slam, but a distraction by the manager allowed Waco to get the rollup pin with a handful of denim in 5:47.

“Night Train/Gorgeous/Great One” Gary Jackson vs. Big Jim Hoffarth vs. “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas(w/ Travis Cook): This match would determine the next challenger to the Classic Title. I could have sworn a previous TV show had set up a Hoffarth vs. Wylde & Wyldefyre handicap match of some kind, but I guess I was mistaken. Kahagas had made a splash in his SICW debut with a surprising clean win over the veteran mainstay Jackson.
SICWAUGLL-60

SICWAUGLL-63

SICWAUGLL-66

This one was surprisingly short; Kahagas had Jackson cornered, but sidestepped as Hoffarth charged with an avalanche. The big man hit Gary by mistake, leading to Kahagas disposing of Hoffarth with a roundhouse kick to the head before pinning Jackson in 5:55. Kahagas is the new number-one contender to the Classic Wrestling Championship and he appears to have the number of Gary Jackson.

“Ironman” Ken Kasa & “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner vs. Brandon Espinosa & “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook): Oddly, this was the only one of the three matches featuring Travis’ charges where he provided his own introductions. Espy and Hargas added their two cents; Hargas has shown a lot of improvement on his mic work in recent months.

SICWAUGLL-79

Kasa has been feuding with Travis Cook’s Organization in general and Hargas in particular, culminating in last month’s 30-Minute Ironman Match victory over Hargas. Kasa got Cook in the ring for five minutes and humiliated him by pulling down his pants, revealing his trademark Spongebob Squarepants boxer shorts…bwahahaha. As a result, Travis promised a reward to either of his proteges if they did some damage to Kasa in this tag match.
SICWAUGLL-87

SICWAUGLL-93

The TCO were a slightly more cohesive unit in this one, having done a lot of damage in recent months with the spike piledriver…when they teased the double-team move on Gunner, the referee warned them against it only to be blatantly decked by Espy.

SICWAUGLL-94

That drew a disqualification in 9:53 as Espy and Hargas delivered the spike piledriver…Gunner had to be stretchered out of the ring, leaving Kasa to vow revenge for his partner’s injury.

Miss Monica Passeri vs. Paloma Starr: Despite being a fan favorite in her previous SICW apperance(vs. Lucy Mendez), Paloma was a rulebreaker on this night.
a>

Notably, Brigante and Monica are fan favorites here…both have struck me as being extremely friendly and courteous in person. Monica had some clothing issues as her T-shirt was ripped, so she was covering herself for a good portion of the matchup. This actually led to a fan throwing her a jacket at one point!

SICWAUGLL-146

SICWAUGLL-148

 

SICWAUGLL-159

SICWAUGLL-175

Curtis Wylde & Wyldefyre made their way to ringside for a closer look at the bout; Monica overcame both opponent and wardrobe malfunction as she won with an X-Factor(sitout faceslam) in 8:07.

SICWAUGLL-185

The Wyldes cornered Monica afterwards, as apparently Wyldefyre has exclusive rights to female presence in this promotion…that brought out Karim Brigante to back up his lady and set up a mixed tag match for September 17th.

SICWAUGLL-207
Wylde threatened to send them back to Italy by getting their work visas revoked…and that somehow turned into an official stipulation for the matchup. However, the Wyldes will be booted from SICW if THEY lose…huh. Wyldefyre hasn’t been in a lot of official matches; her previous action took place at South Broadway almost ten years ago against Jennifer Starr, so it’ll be interesting to see how she does in next month’s mixed tag.

Ron Powers vs. Attila Khan(w/ Travis Cook), no-DQ match for the Classic Title:

SICWAUGLL-220

These two traded falls in last month’s best-of-three-falls six-man tag, setting up this bout. The referee checked Khan for weapons and found his fork, only to Travis to remind him of the stipulation so it was all for naught. As you might expect from the personalities involved, they didn’t wait long before throwing fists and brawling out of the ring. This scared the bejeezus out of some kids in my section, who were left crying and wanting to go home!

SICWAUGLL-234

SICWAUGLL-240

SICWAUGLL-244

SICWAUGLL-246

SICWAUGLL-252

SICWAUGLL-258

I dare say that Chuck Taylor(err, DUSTIN) has nothing on these two. Chairs flew, Khan bled, and miraculously they made it back to the ring. Travis instructed Khan to wedge a metal garbage can between the turnbuckles, but the momentary loss of focus allowed Powers to avalanche him from behind.

Khan was sandwiched between his opponent and the trash can and turnbuckles, giving Powers the opening to finish with the RKO in a brisk 4:34!

SICWAUGLL-260

Chaos erupted after the bell as Brandon Espinosa and Chris Hargas hit the ring to attack Powers along with Khan. Ken Kasa and Gary Jackson joined the fray, as did Kahagas…ending the show with a staredown between Powers and Kahagas, who will face each other for the title on September 17th.

SICWAUGLL-280

SICWAUGLL-272

So two matches are set up for the next East Carondelet show…

Wylde’s Fun Day – Courtesy of Sean Vincent

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 24, 2015

One of the Hottest feuds in 2015 in the Midwest has been Sean Vincent feuding with the double trouble duo of “Volatile” Curtis Wylde and Wyldefyre in a war that has been going on for close to a year (Started in Dec. ’14).  Wylde had used underhanded tactics with the heal of red headed beauty Wyldfyre’s brick loaded purse  to pick up a count out win at SICW in August.

In September the feud came to an explosive moment when the match contained the stipulation that if Vincent lost, he would be forced to leave, but if the Wylde’s lost they would become his servants for a whole weekend.

The battle went back and forth, but the key moment happened when once again Wyldefyre looked to once again help her man by nailing Vincent with her purse, but it backfired as she nailed her man allowing Vincent to get the win.

Due to the stipulation of the match, the Wylde’s did spend time of the ranch and thanks to Sean Vincent and the voice of SICW  Dr. Drew we now have complete footage of the weekends hilarious  moments on the ranch.

Ron Powers Wins The Brody Memorial Battle Royal by Patrick Brandmeyer

A great opportunity to meet the legends and get there autographs for the past few years has been SICW.

The 2013 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jake Dirden made sure to get there early to pick the brain of the legend Stan Hansen for over twenty minutes.

Larry Matysik is one of the greatest wrestling minds today, unfortunately he was unable to be there, but behind every great man is a great women, for Larry it is his lovely wife Pat.

A standing-room-only audience packed the East Carondelet Community Center for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling’s biggest show of the year. Fans flooded the building to honor the memories of both the anniversary of “Wrestling At The Chase” and the late King Kong “Bruiser” Brody.

The special guests were out in force. Along with Director Of Affairs Cowboy Bob Orton, the visitors in the house included Brody’s widow Barbara Goodish, Brody’s former tag partner Stan “The Lariat” Hansen, Larry Matysik’s wife Pat, and former AWA announcer Mick Karch. Promoter Herb Simmons acknowledged his guests at the top of the show before ring announcer Drew Abbenhaus kicked off the action.

In the opener, “Dirdey” Jake Dirden joined forces with Bobby D and “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner to take on the trio of Brandon Espinosa, “Volatile” Curtis Wylde, and Bubba Troll.

 photo 31_zps1wl4xzg5.jpg

“Volatile” Curtis Wylde was in the house.

 photo 11_zpsajuwj6rf.jpg

 photo 12_zpspub6hx8s.jpg

As always, Wylde was accompanied by his “Number-One Ginja” Wyldefyre.
 photo 13_zpsuoqktfab.jpg

It was a chaotic bout, as one would expect with so much humanity in one ring…as everyone brawled, Wyldefyre accidentally tripped her own man and that led to Bobby D finishing off Wylde with a Pedigree.

Two tough guys did battle as Big Jim Hoffarth locked horns with Ax. The two had crossed paths a few times in recent months without a decisive conclusion and were looking to settle the score on this meaningful night.
 photo 15_zpsyyv3pncq.jpg

 photo 14_zps5nke42nc.jpg

Big Jim with the body slam on Ax.

The battle spilled to the floor in the early minutes and Hoffarth went for a clothesline, but struck the ringpost when Ax moved out of the way. Ax pounced on the injury and targeted the bad limb with no mercy…Big Jim attempted to fight back, but had trouble defending himself and the referee finally stopped the bout out of concern for Hoffarth’s physical well-being. Ax was the winner…but Hoffarth still wanted a piece of his rival.

 photo 20_zpszienjwo8.jpg

Chaz Wesson made quick work of Waco.

“The Old School Warrior” Chaz Wesson was out to make a statement and he did so at the expense of the masked man Waco.

Wesson unleashed a flurry of offense from the opening bell, pinning Waco in about a minute with a cross-bodyblock off the top rope…proving himself worthy of being in the thick of the Classic Wrestling Championship picture.

 photo 18_zpsxyiurkrw.jpg

The Great One Gary Jackso.

“Night Train” Gary Jackson(w/ Big Daddy) had a literally huge task ahead of him in the form of the 300-plus-pound Barackus.

Jackson was attempting to rebound from his April loss of the Classic Title to Flash Flanagan, but he had trouble dealing with the size disadvantage. Barackus crushed the veteran with a huge Samoan Drop, but experience was the deciding factor as Barackus took his time on the pin attempt.
 photo 19_zps98bjmwh4.jpg

That allowed Gary to crucifix his shoulders to the mat for the pinfall, using the big man’s own size against him.

Herb Simmons interviewed Stan Hansen and Barbara Goodish about the night’s main event: The Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal. As noted, the bout held special significance for them due to their respective connections to its namesake…many contenders would be in the ring to earn that trophy, but only one could walk away with it.

Midwest newcomer Paloma Starr went one-on-one with “The Queen Of Chaos” Lucy Mendez…the two had a wild fight in a mixed tag the previous month, but this time there would be no tag team partners to hold them back.

 photo 17_zpsr4m3qmrg.jpg

Paloma Starr has the 2014 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Lucy Mendez in deep trouble.

 photo 16_zpsoaoqmmii.jpg

Starr had the power advantage, but Lucy’s experience would play a pivotal role in this one. She managed to outmaneuver Paloma and deliver a hanging DDT for the victory, continuing her run of success in the St. Louis area.

Two men at career crossroads faced each other as Keith Smith Jr. collided with “Ironman” Ken Kasa (accompanied by Travis Cook). Kasa was hoping to get back on track toward the Classic Wrestling Championship while the upstart Smith had his sights set on his first one-on-one victory.

 photo 22_zpsqvlw3yhj.jpg

Kasa established his early dominance with his signature shotgun dropkick right after the opening bell…he could have ended the match at that point, but chose to dish out more punishment. Chaz Wesson came out to root for his protege and that drew the ire of Travis Cook…however, the manager accidentally distracted his own charge and Keith Jr. was able to fire back with a football-style leg dive.
 photo 21_zpszmahyjei.jpg

With Kasa down on the mat, Smith hooked his father’s signature figure-four leglock and Kasa was forced to tap out!

After the match, things broke down between Kasa and Cook…Kasa was able to leave the ring without his manager, but caught him in the act of attempting a cheapshot with a chain around his fist. Kasa cornered Cook and prepared to lower the boom, but his stablemate Chris Hargas clipped his injured knee from behind. Hargas and Cook dished out a two-on-one beatdown on the wounded competitor, essentially downsizing Ken Kasa from the Travis Cook Organization.

 photo 23_zpsh7rswxc4.jpg

The end of an era as Travis Cook turns on the former SICW Champion Ken Kasa.

Travis Cook had a full evening as Hargas teamed with the Mongolian madman Attila Khan against the unlikely duo of Ricky Cruz and Ron Powers. The longtime rivals had common enemies and worked surprisingly well against Cook’s team, but underhanded tactics made the difference in this match.

 photo 24_zpsv2ywc7cs.jpg

 photo 26_zpslromfphk.jpg

The match was chaotic and wild as SICW ring announcer Abbenhaus runs for his life as the action was everywhere.

As the referee’s attention was diverted, Khan stunned Cruz with a low blow before jabbing him in the throat with a foreign object passed into the ring by Travis Cook. After that, Khan scored the tainted pinfall on the former Classic Wrestling Champion.

 photo 27_zpssege9gox.jpg

The Classic Wrestling Championship was at stake as two-time titleholder Flash Flanagan defended against “The Man Of Tomorrow” Daniel Eads. Eads had received MWR’s “Future Star Award” and hoped to carry that momentum into a big victory, but Flash’s years of experience were too much to overcome.
 photo 28_zpsgouakfz0.jpg

 photo 29_zpsbqlwfytj.jpg

 photo 30_zpswpbnxytv.jpg

Daniel Eads is one of the 2014 MWR Future Stars of the Year, but Flanagan is one of the baddest men in the country. Eads put up a fight but the wily veteran once again was a step ahead to keep the title.

A missed move caused Eads to land painfully on the second turnbuckle and Flanagan followed up with a double-stomp from the top rope as Eads was hung up on the ropes; that allowed the champion to retain his title.

 photo 33_zpscw7wnggs.jpg

This young fan was rooting for Ricky Cruz or Ron Powers to win the battle Royal.

The ring filled with powerhouses at the end of the night, all competing for the honor of being the first holder of the Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal trophy.

 photo 34_zpsylomp8nt.jpg

 photo 35_zpsvmijunzg.jpg

In the midst of all the battles, Travis Cook pulled down the top rope and caused Ron Powers to tumble out of the ring. He seemed to be eliminated at that point, but Cowboy Bob Orton would allow him to re-enter the fray. The match came down to Hargas, Khan, Cruz, and Powers…Cruz eliminated Khan only to be pulled to the floor himself. Hargas charged at Powers, but Ron pulled down the top rope and Hargas fell out of the ring…leaving the former Brody protege as the winner of the battle royal!

After Barbara Goodish presented Powers with the trophy, Herb Simmons congratulated him on his win…but he had a bit of news regarding the June show. Travis Cook had been badgering him to settle the Red River Jack controversy and Herb finally had a solution: On June 20th, Ron Powers would face two members of the Travis Cook Organization…and Powers’ tag team partner would be Red River Jack. The news seemed to catch Powers off guard, but he promised that he and R.R.J. would come out on top.

 photo 37_zpseuobd8e6.jpg

On a night set up to celebrate Wrestling At The Chase and Bruiser Brody, the action in the ring told its own story and set the stage for a tumultuous summer in Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling!
