Missouri Wrestling Revival was proud to be a part of the exciting MECW show in Wood River Illinois this past Saturday. MECW Champion Zach Thompson was able to retain the Heavyweight Championship by defeating the first ever MECW Great Plains Trophy Champion Ryan Slade in the Main event. Thompson’s life did not get any easier as next month, on July 18th in Wood River Illinois; he will take on one of the Midwest most exciting wrestlers Bailey Mannix in a DOG COLLAR match.
MWR and the MECW Family were sad to hear that Dewey “Booger” Dawson will be taking a hiatus from the wrestling ring. Dawson recently found the God and stated that he loved wrestling and the fans, financially at the moment he would have to walk away from the sport to pursue other goals. Dawson made his way around the building to thank the MECW Family (fans, wrestlers and staff) who were visibly upset. In a touching moment he gave his boots to young Ricky who had was back for his first MECW show since the surgery. Ricky’s mom had told me prior to the show that Dawson was one of his favorites and this moment was special to everyone in attendance.
During intermission MECW’S MR K picked a name out of the bag for one special fan to win a free MWR T-shirt. The lucky member was one of our friends with the Fuzzy Hat Club who goes by the name Indian. We hope to be back in Woodriver on the 18TH to check out more great MECW wrestling action and work with the great guys at MECW.
Look for a recap of the MECW show in the near future at MWR.
