2016 Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star – Kevin Lee Davidson / Todd Letterman

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 19, 2017

The Missouri Wrestling Revival Future Star Award has always been one of my favorite awards to give a wrestler. In the past, we tried to honor wrestlers that were just starting out within their first few years that we believed had the talent as well as have shown the desire to go the extra mile on the roads, training with veterans and doing everything that they possibly could to succeed.

This award was one that was personally chosen by myself, and I have been very proud of all the great talents that we have chosen.

This year I decided to change the philosophy of the award to not only talents that are just starting out. The reason is that wrestling has evolved within the past few years where stars that have entertained us on the Independents for years have had the opportunity to become household names at the WWE such as Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens.

So I asked myself, Brian, with so many young wrestlers in the area often traveling in and out of the area, they often are in the mention of top wrestlers, but because of coming in and out of it how can I honor them for their efforts? So with that thought I imagine the MWR Future Star Award to be a representation of who I would send today to NXT if the WWE asked me and my reputation was on the line. Please note that former MWR Wrestlers of the Year winners will not be up for this award

This year we will have two announcements, one today and one tomorrow. Both as important as the other.

Kevin Lee Davidson is a wrestler that meets all the criteria that the past winners exhibited. I love his size, and his raw talents. He has shown that he is smart enough to reach out to the top trainers in the area to improve himself as he has been under the tutelage of former MWR Wrestler of the Year Brandon Espinosa, Former ROH World Champion Michael Elgin, and through camps with the likes of eight time NWA World Champion Harley Race. He has already wrestled in another country and been seen on Ring of Honor TV.

Today, he is a signed contracted wrestler with NWL that feature trainers such as former Harley Race’s right hand man, Derek Stone, and Michael Strider, as well as the wrestling minds of Chris Gough, Major Baisden, Matt Jackson and Travis Scott Bowden the foundation is as strong to succeed as it could be anywhere in the independents.

Brian Kelley – Owner and Editor Missouri Wrestling Revival

0A mere two and a half years into his wrestling career, Kevin Lee Davidson(aka Todd Letterman) has made a huge impact on the Midwest wrestling scene. Debuting in the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance in the summer of 2014, “K.L.D.” made an immediate impact with his sheer size and power. He held the Television, Survivor, and Heavyweight Titles in his time with the promotion, but his journey was just beginning as he appeared for most of the major promotions in the St. Louis area; his experience includes matches with Dynamo Pro Wrestling, World League Wrestling, St. Louis Anarchy, and Wrestling Invades America(where he held their Heavyweight Title).

K.L.D.’s big step in the wrestling world was seeking the mentorship of Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling star “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin; this led to several appearances for ROH as well as matches in Canada and Europe. Most recently, his talents caught the eye of National Wrasslin’ League President Major Baisden…K.L.D. was one of the first to be signed to an exclusive NWL contract!

Now known as “The All-American” Todd Letterman, the big man is one of the top names in the new NWL promotion…will he be the first NWL St. Louis Champion? Don’t bet against him!

Look for an exclusive MWR Future of the Year Kevin Lee Davidson/ Todd Leterman artwork honoring her for his achievement from acclaimed artist Dartallion Allen Jr. in the future.

If you would like to sponsor the MWR  Future Star of the Year Plaques for KLD /Todd Leterman then please contact MWR at flairwhoooooo@yahoo.com. The cost is $50.00 and you will receive a past MWR Yearbook, a Tyler Black (Seth Rollins rookie card) and a mention on the MWR Website.

Kevin Lee Davidson has proven in a very short time that he is one of the top rising stars in the country with his phenomenal size and surprising agility. Promoters around the world have taken notice and as we speak he is in Milan, Italy showcasing his skills while defending his Wrestling Invades America Championship.

We recently received word from our friends in Italy that he challenged Charlie Kidd for the ICW Championship, coming up short. Never one to keep his head down, KLD punished Nick Lenders with a Pop Up Spinebuster to retained WIA Championship.

KLD will continue his tour as he heads to England to defend his title once again before returning back to the United States where you can catch him in action at SICW at the Cape-Comic Con (Cape Girardeau, Missouri) on the 16th and Wrestling Invades America on April 24th.

MWR fans if you would like to support KLD while he is away do not hesitate to purchase an exclusive Kevin Lee Davidson t-shirt at his official Pro Wrestling Tee’s page by clicking here or meet him in person when he returns where he will have three new t-shirt designs as well as a hoodie to be on point in 2016.
