2017 MWR Wrestler of the Year: “Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper

Posted by Ben Simon on January 7, 2018

Write up by Ben Simon

Missouri Wrestling Revival is proud to present our most prestigious year-end award to the “Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper.

The 2017 Wrestler of the Year award recipient is a unique one for two reasons.

First, this was the first year anyone had ever heard of Dakota Draper under any ring name in the Midwest.  Formerly known as Sammy Six Guns, Draper had wrestled in WWE NXT, but he was unknown in the MWR states.

Second, the MWR board voted unanimously for Draper.  This never happens!  The decision wasn’t tough though; the six-foot five-inch tall Draper has had one of the best years of any independent wrestler we have ever seen.

It is rare to see such a blend of size, strength, athleticism, and charisma as Dak Draper possesses.

The 250 lb. heavyweight was one of the first signings of the National Wrasslin’ League, which launched in January 7, 2017 and is already the most active promotion in Missouri.

Dak Draper proved unbeatable the entire year.  He won the tournament to crown the first NWL Champion on April 1 and held the title until December 8, when he lost it in a 30-man Rumble match (which he entered voluntarily).

Our mathematical Missouri Rankings system has had him at #1 in the State since the end of April (26-0-1 record; the blemish was a double countout in St. Joseph against Maverick).  He even surpassed Ricky Cruz‘s record high rating, which means he is the most dominant wrestler in Missouri (at least!) since 2013 (at least!).

Draper’s relationship with the fans has matured this year.  He has always been charismatic yet brash.  Most NWL viewers thought he was downright annoying at first.  However, the man who likes to point and proclaim, “Shame on you!” eventually had a popular catchphrase on his hands.

The fans joined Draper’s favor after he was accused of throwing an elimination match for control of the NWL’s matchmaking.  Dak denied the accusation by company owner Major Baisden and sought to prove his word by putting his title on the line in the NWL Rumble, which he lost.  This has redeemed his abrasive personality to many fans.

The Denver, Colo. native is a master of self-promotion.  He even has his own YouTube series, The Magnum Minute.  He has produced about 50 short episodes this year.

Congratulations to “The Mile High Magnum” Dak Draper for earning the 2017 MWR Wrestler of the Year award.

Santana Garrett continues to be RED hot in the world of pro wrestling. In her young career she has been featured in many of the top wrestling promotions in the country including WWE: NXT, TNA PPV’S, SHIMMER and SHINE. Fans have been thrilled to see Santana G grace the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and with her being featured as the cover girl for the Ring Sirens December issue the magazine has been selling like crazy.

 photo ringsirensdecember2013thumb_zpsdfea06b4.png

With the popularity and beauty of Santana Garrett, it can be easily forgotten that she is a women that is very focused on being the top female wrestler in the world today. She possess all three qualities that every wrestler would like to have, talent, charisma and the looks. That has led to success in single victories and tag team championships at WOW with partner Amber O’Neal.

Yet, her biggest test is set to come as she is seeking to capture a title that she has yearned to have for years, the NWA Women’s World Championship currently held by the talented Barbi Hayden. If Santana G is to accomplish her goal to be the NWA Women’s Champion, she will have earned it as Hayden is as good as they come. Hayden has been a fighting champion ever since defeating Kacee Carlisle at NWA Houston and has a victory against Santana Garrett early on, but Santana Garrett has shown that she is able to recover from a loss and return even better.

The NWA is on the upswing with a NWA President Bruce Tharpe regaining a presence in Japan and classic matches that include the likes of SATOSHI KOJIMA defeating the “IRONMAN” Rob Conway for the NWA World title, and quite possibly the most talented group of wrestlers in the NWA top 10 in years.

Many believe that Santana Garrett is the future of the sport, but she can only be as good as her opponents and the feuds that she has. Flair had Steamboat, Hogan had Andre and Stone Cold had Vince…….Is it only fitting that Garrett has Hayden…. .

Could 2014 be the year for Women’s wrestling in the NWA? If Santana Garrett has anything to say about it, it will.

Look for NWA World Champion Barbi Hayden vs. Santana Garrett to heat up this spring near a ring near you.
