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…

Ron Powers Wins The Brody Memorial Battle Royal by Patrick Brandmeyer

Fans were thrilled to pick up some rare wrestling memorabilia from AWA Ring announcer Mick Karch.

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

Stan Hansen loved to meet his fans young and old.

A great photo of a father and son along with Mick Karch… This young man wearing the the Andre shirt is so awesome.

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!

1380 sports talk radio’s Jeff Vernetti teams up with LMC to take on Max Archer and Waco

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 9, 2011

By Herb Simmons

Action returns to the East Carondelet Community Center when the MMWA/SICW continues to bring the fans some of the greatest action in the Midwest. Last show during the television taping for Charter Cable the fans witnessed Champion Ron Powers battle Chris Harges, with Harges having his head put through the wall and a table being broke and after having his hands full with Harges Powers managed to survive. He later became outraged with wrestling book author, play by play announcer and the voice of Wrestling Explosion Larry Matysik due to his name not being included in Matysik’s new book, “The fifty great wrestlers of all time”.

After they exchanged words Powers agreed to a challenge by Matysik that if he could beat an opponent of Matysik’s choosing then he would but Powers name in the new book. Matysik called upon Dave Vaughn to battle with Powers with the stipulation Powers had to beat Vaughn in five minutes or less. Powers couldn’t get the job done and about three minutes into the match Powers henchmen, Sean Vincent and the Big Texan entered the ring just as Vaughn had the sleeper hold locked onto Powers. With Vincent and Texan interfering this called for a DQ of Powers. As you know there shortly after I signed Powers to meet Vaughn on October 15th for the CWC title.

Photobucket

Also on October 15th a special match was signed. The bright new Star LMC came to the aid of ring announcer Jeff Vernetti who is a local DJ on 1380 sports talk radio in St. Louis when Max Archer and Waco attacked Vernetti for not interviewing them. I signed a match featuring LMC & Vernetti taking on Archer and Waco in a special tag match. All the 1380 sports talk radio fans will be coming out to support Jeff and LMC.

There will be five other outstanding matches to round out the television taping. For tickets or special group rates fans can call 618-286-4848.

Look forward to seeing you there.

21) The Texan Hangman (Waco and Texan)

As much as we love the MMWA-SICW we cannot deny the lack of title defenses from their tag team division hurts their guys on this list. You would not want to meet these two in a dark alley is the big masked men Waco and the Big Texan.

These two big brutes will punish you with brutal punches and kicks from bell to bell. Managed  at times by the mastermind Travis Cook as part of The Connection they terrorized fans and their opponents wile capturing the MMWA-SICW Tag Team titles.

The black mask and Camouflage army pants only add to the perception that they feel no pain as they keep on the offense throughout the match.

Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans February 2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 27, 2011

By Dubray Tallman

Hello everyone, an exciting night for me personally as our good friend promoter Herb Simmons asked for me to present Danny Boy Hawkins with a trophy. The trophy was in honor of his accomplishment of winning the Classic Wrestling Champion tournament last month at the very same building by defeating Waco, The Big Texan and followed it up with a win in the finals over “Thee” Brandon Espinosa.

I was nervous as this was to be aired on Channel 8 in St Louis so I didn’t want to mess up and make Danny Boy look bad. In all I was happy with the way it turned out as things was going great until Ron Powers went off his rocker and attacked his good friend Danny Boy.

You can find out the details by clicking here.

The MWR wrestler of the night was one of our favorite young men in the game today high flying A big thank you to Ace Hawkins for throwing out an MWR shirt prior to overcoming the odds and defeating the much bigger Waco during the night.
Photobucket

After his match Ace came out to meet the fan Gavin who was from Waterloo Illinois there in the front row with his family.

Danny Boy had a huge fan base at MMWA-SICW and prior to his good friend Ron Powers stabbed him in the back several of the fans took the chance to get their picture taken with the champ.

Photobucket

First we had Donovan who was at the matches for the very first time!

Photobucket

Dominic’s dad was a special guest for the show and had remembered us at WLW in 2010 when Brian had covered them. It was great meeting them and Dominic was so excited about having his photo while holding the belt with the Champ.

Photobucket

Christian, Kayla, Paige, and Allison was up next , this was Allison’s second time coming and she just loves Danny Boy so I was happy to get the two together along with Allison’s friends.

Photobucket

Brett & Eli Gummersheimer had their photo taken with Dave Vaughn last time but the photo did not turn out so this time they got to pose with “The Icon” Chris Hargas.

Photobucket

Last but not least I was going to pick a wrestler, when I saw that Brian was speaking to Jaysin Static questioning his actions in the ring earlier in the night against his opponent Max Archer when I got my good friend Mike Van to capture the young star putting the MWR Owner in a headlock.

I would like to thank MMWA-SICW for their friendship and support of myself and MWR as we get to meet such wonderful fans while checking out some great wrestling action.

Till next time.

Love Dubz

Ron Powers

MWR’s pick:

A tournament with some of the best today will go at it full force. Ron Powers comes off a big victory of the Big Texan in December. Dave Vaughn is a marked man after taking out Travis Cook after his match with Espinosa last month, which MWR has heard may have retired the wily leader. How will The Big Texan, Waco and Brandon Espinosa do without the man who lead them to glory in 2010?

We had many sources tell us that Danny Boy could have very of been the best wrestling in St Louis, prior to his announcement to walk away a few years ago. Danny Boy has been impressive and may be the most popular wrestler in the company.

Chris Hargas has the skills and the power to overcome the odds, though he has been hit and miss at matches in the past, can this be the year of Hargas. Last but not least is the man who we can not put our money against, the “Great One” Gary Jackson. Jackson can talk but he ALWAYS backs it up.

Our Pick: Gary Jackson.

Wild Card: Brandon Espinosa- A true Ego Maniac if there ever was one. With or without Cook he is one of the best.

Now it is your turn to pick the man who will become the first ever Classic Wrestling Champion.
