MWR June Awards

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 19, 2009

Hello Wrestling fans as one of my idols would say….A slow month in the number of shows in June but some very exciting and important developments in the Midwest scene.

One of our own has the honor of being invited into the Ted Petty Invitational tournament in September. KC Karrington takes out the seemingly unbeatable Jeremy Wyatt, A promotion rises from the ashes to be the top dog for the month. Hadeev wrestles FIVE times and comes out the Albert J. Murray Memorial Tournament winner. Donovan Ruddick and Mark Bland is touted as the must see match of the year with a little help from a guy known as TNT. Speaking of the Future Donovan Ruddick he had words with the powerful Keith Walker at PWE after Walker rumbled with the Mississippi Madman.

The Submission Squad gains momentum going into the second half. 3XW Champion Casanova proved that he is the man to beat at 3XW. The youth of St Louis excelled at IHW as Brandon Aarons was able to defeat Gary Jay to be entered in the match, and then was awarded the victor when he outlasted Eric Allen, Billy McNeil and Adam Rich. This was just a few of the Highlights of June 2009.

The year is half way over with no clear cut winner for the year end awards. Make your way to a pro wrestling show near you and let us know what you like or did not like. Till then Thank you for taking the time to check out Missouri Wrestling Revival Awards for June.

The Promoter of High Voltage Wrestling goes above and beyond by shamelessly promoting his company which is still in its infancy. He continually posts on message boards, videos, and radio to get fans interested in his product. He and his staff will go to other events in order to scout different talent to bring in and help his promotion. There is nothing Keny G will not do to help better HVW and Midwest independent wrestling. Took over the Absolute Wrestling Radio’s broadcast then Suffered a beat down from AWR’S Mark Bland, and then had words at the live AWR airing from Six Flags. TNT Keny G has been busy even though he has not had a show since May.

K.C. Karrington and Jeremy Wyatt went through a hellacious battle for the LWA Heavyweight Title on June 20 at LWA’s Circus Maximus VI. In a nearly 40 minute brawl, these two athletes threw everything at each other, but the desire to be champion kept both of them pushing forward. Wyatt treated Karrington as an unworthy contender but quickly realized that Karrington’s desire matched his own. Many nearfalls and narrow escapes occurred, including Wyatt inadvertently hitting himself in the head with a steel chair as it bounced off the ring ropes. Wyatt could have retained his belt after connecting with the lightning spiral, but with ref was knocked out, allowing Wyatt to have Sterling interfere on his behalf. Biggs saw the events unfolding and chased Sterling to the back before any damage could be done. Karrington then hit Wyatt with a DDT from the second rope and made his dream come true.

Kahyman restakes claim in MMWA-SICW

Posted by reimaginejournalism on July 18, 2009

By Kari Williams

It started like any other match. Champion versus challenger. Battling for the Junior Heavyweight Championship. Then something happened. Something that changed the course of one wrestler’s career.

“I was in a match with A.J. Williams. The week prior we had wrestled, and I felt like I got direct contact to my thigh. [I] didn’t think much of it. It healed by the next week. We wrestled. The match went extraordinarily well. I won my title back. The very next day, my leg pretty much exploded,” said Kahyman.

Back in Feb. 2008, Kahyman was on top of the world, having regained his title and defeated his nemesis in Williams. But one freak accident changed that. His quadricep and groin were torn. Both sides of his legs were strained. And retirement called his name.

“The hardest part [about retirement] was having to quit way before I was ready to do so. About a month or two month later, I broke down and cried in front of my wife because I had to quit something I was genuinely good at way before I was ready to give it up,” said Kahyman.

Being forced to walk away from something he loved, Kahyman became a recluse to the wrestling world. He stopped watching wrestling all together—it was too much to bear.

“I stayed away from wrestling completely. I couldn’t even go to a show…It broke my heart to sit there and watch anybody do what I love to do,” said Kahyman.

In the four years he wrestled at South Broadway Athletic Club (MMWA-SICW), he grew close to the wrestlers, as well as the fans. He missed the interaction with fans and the companionship almost as much as in-ring competition.

“[I missed] the people, the fans. The comaraderie with the guys who I am friends with in the locker room. It’s like you have an entirely other family, and it was like all of a sudden I was kicked out of that family,” said Kahyman.

While coping with what he thought was his retirement, the former MMWA-SICW Junior Heavyweight Champion turned his focus toward rehabilitation. Kahyman worked with his specialist, Dr. Ziegman, as he went through a standard physical therapy session. Slowly, he began to regain strength, and began weightlifting and swimming four to five times a week. That took eight months.

Then the itch to return to the ring surfaced.

“My rehab was going faster than expected, and it had been about a year after my retirement. And I started thinking about it, and I started watching wrestling again, and…about two months ago, I made a decision that I was going to come back,” said Kahyman.

Kahyman gradually began to watch MMWA-SICW shows again, and as his return drew near, he could not help but notice how The Connection was running rampant on the promotion.

“I was really getting tired of the Connection just treating this place as their own playground and trying to run over everybody… what irritated me was watching [them] just [do] what they felt like they could do, and I felt somebody needed to do something about it,” said Kahyman.

Phil E. Blunt and Kahyman go to war in Jan. 2008. Kahyman called out Blunt during an interview on June 13, saying, Phil E. Blunt, the man with a million dollars worth of talent and a two cent head, I’m looking forward to wrestling him again. And, if he remembers correctly, he hasn’t pinned me in over three years.

Blunt, the man with a million dollars worth of talent and a two cent head, I’m looking forward to wrestling him again. And, if he remembers correctly, he hasn’t pinned me in over three years." Photo by Mike VanHoogstraat

After his first match back against Lumberjack Abe, Connection Member and Current MMWA-SICW Junior Heavyweight Champion Dave Vaughn tried to attack Kahyman, which only adds fuel to the fire.

“First thing’s first, I’m going after the Connection. Other than that, I don’t know if I’m going to bother with the Light Heavyweight Championship again. Apparently, me and Dave Vaughn have an issue that’s unresolved, so we’re definitely going to get something taken care of,” said Kahyman.

Through all of the heartache and pain of leaving professional wrestling; the months spent sitting at home, not being able to do what he loved most, Kahyman persevered and emerged victorious in his return match. Only time will tell how things will fare between The Connection and Kahyman, but one thing is for sure—Shaft, Dave Vaughn and Phil E. Blunt need to keep an eye out for MMWA-SICW’s resident vampire.

“Life is more important than dreams”

Posted by reimaginejournalism on July 17, 2009

MMWA-SICW’s A.J. Williams lives for professional wrestling. It is his passion. His dream. And the way he looks at it, he fulfilled that dream.

By Kari Williams

Former MMWA-SICW Junior Heavyweight Champion A.J. Williams began walking the path to his dreams the day he turned 18. That was four years ago. And he never looked back.

“Everyone says they’re here to make it big, they’re here to go to WWE [or] TNA. My dream ever since I was a kid was to be a wrestler. The way I look at it right now, I fulfilled that dream. Life is more important than dreams. So, as of right now, I am a wrestler; I’m happy down at South Broadway [Athletic Club]…This is the number one thing I love to do in life so if I can make my living off it I will, but if not, I’m happy just being where I am,” said Williams.

The passion Williams has for wrestling has been a part of his life since childhood, when he spent the summers with his older cousin. He would go to any friend’s homes that he could and wrestle with his friends. Fast forward over a decade and a half, and Williams found a place to turn his youthful desires into a definite reality with his best friend, Brandon Espinosa, who began training three months prior to Williams.

“[Wrestling] was something I always wanted to do, and once I found a place that did it, I was always here [at South Broadway Athletic Club]. I did camera work for South Broadway before I even got into the ring. I trained for a whole year and a half before I got in the ring. Luckily, I knew a couple people that were down here, so that kind of helped, but once I saw South Broadway, I knew that was the place I was going to start out at,” said Williams.

Espinosa and Williams have known each other since they were six-years-old. During training, the competitive nature in the two men emerged, as they tried to one-up each other on occasion. However, their friendship remained in tact, and they wrestled each other on numerous occasions—Title matches, Number one contender’s matches and tag team matches.

On May 24, 2008, Williams ventured to St. Peters, MO to wrestle for Lethal Wrestling Alliance in a tag team match against Espinosa. The match acted as a debut for both men—Williams’ debut in the company and Espinosa’s tag team debut with “Irresistably Flawless” Brandon Aarons.

Espinosa considers this match his favorite because of their respective debuts, the fact that the two have a good in-ring chemistry and because Espinosa enjoyed seeing his friend wrestle in another promotion.

“He feeds off the crowd…He definitely has a funny side [and can also be] serious. With as long as he held the Junior Heavyweight belt at South Broadway, he’s not a joke in wrestling,” said Espinosa.

As his in-ring style reflects, from the moment that wrestling captivated the young Williams, he has related to The Showstopper more than he has related to any other.

“The number one person [I look up to], by far, is Shawn Michaels. I’ve always looked up to him since I was little just because of me watching wrestling at five years old. I’m the skinniest guy in my class, the skinniest guy in my family, and to see someone that almost looks like me beating [guys that are] 6’ 4”, that’s what got me in here,” said Williams.

Despite the Heartbreat Kid’s influence, many fans believe that Williams patterns himself after “The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles and Petey Williams because of his namesake. Espinosa looks at Williams as someone who adapts his style to each opponent. However, Williams attests that the name came from his childhood.

“I am [an A.J. Styles and Petey Williams fan], but, no, that has nothing to do with [my name]. I went by A.J. before everyone knew about A.J. Styles. A.J. stands for Angry Juvenille. I have, and had, a very bad attitude problem, so I thought that would fit perfect going with Angry Juvenille,” said Williams.

That anger has helped his career through creating intense rivalries with his opponents. Williams and Current MMWA-SICW Champion Dave Vaughn battled for nearly a year, where both men gave it their all each time the stepped in the ring. A feud also developed between Williams and his trainer, Phil E. Blunt. No matter whom the Angry Juvenille wrestles, he brings his own unique, adaptable method into the mix. And people take notice.

“The highlight of my career so far is when I’m at work and people come in and that see me at work on the daily and say, ‘I saw you on the TV. You’re a crazy little dude. Why are you doing front flips and backflips inside the ring?’ and I just tell them, ‘That’s for you.’ You pay for it, I’m going to do it,” said Williams.

As the days and months go by, Williams remains true to himself and his beliefs. He treasures the time he has had in the wrestling business.

“Anyone that knows me knows that wrestling is my passion, it’s my life…I just love it. I wouldn’t be here
if I didn’t love it. I wouldn’t put my body on the line if I didn’t love what I was doing, and if I didn’t love seeing the crowds face and hear them screaming my name, I probably wouldn’t do it,” said Williams.

3XW’s 4th Anniversary TOMORROW!

Posted by Admin on July 16, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 1, 2009

3XWrestling Celebrates Four Years Of Action With Biggest Show In History
Iowa’s Top Wrestling Company Proudly Presents Its 50th Event!

DES MOINES, Iowa – In independent professional wrestling, success is measured simply by being a company that can afford to hold an event each month. Manage it for a year and its considered a solid company. Do it for two years and the company is seen as above average – succeeding beyond the level of most promotions nationwide. If the promotion makes it three years, it cements its status as one of the best in the region.

If it makes it four years, with plans to be in business for the foreseeable future, the promotion is ranked among the top wrestling companies in the United States.

On July 17, Des Moines-owned and operated 3XWrestling (3XW) proudly presents its 4 Year Anniversary Show – the 50th event in company history!

To celebrate four years of playing to packed crowds in central Iowa, 3XW is giving back to new and longtime fans alike by presenting the strongest card in company history.

The best professional wrestlers in the Midwest return to the Des Moines Social Club to compete in the following action-packed matches – including a triple main event and four title defenses!:

- Main Event No. 1 – First Ever 3XW Dog Collar match for the 3XW Heavyweight title: Casanova defends the title against former two-time Heavyweight champion “Delicious” Devin Carter – Casanova’s former partner and best friend. If Carter defeats Casanova, he becomes the first three-time 3XW Heavyweight champion. Dog Collar matches are synonymous in professional wrestling with putting the exclamation point on emotionally violent feuds and fans should expect nothing less from this contest.

- Main Event No. 2 – Ladder match for the 3XW Pure Wrestling championship: “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, the 2008 Missouri Wrestling Revival “Wrestler of the Year”, defends his title against longtime rival Tyler Cook in professional wrestling’s most exhilarating match. Cook is the only wrestler in 3XW to hold a pinfall victory over Jeremy Wyatt dating back to January 2007 – can the mega-popular risk taker climb to the top of the ladder and claim victory over Wyatt once again?

- Main Event No. 3 – Two-out-of-Three Falls attraction for the 3XW Tag Team championship: The Gentleman’s Club (Mark Sterling and Gage Octane with 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman) defend against former champions The Northstar Express (Darin Corbin and Ryan Cruz), the 2008 Missouri Wrestling Revival “Tag Team of the Year”, in the most important tag team battle in 3XW history. The Northstar Express held the titles for a record 20 months until Octane and Sterling took advantage of Corbin’s freak knee injury last September and won the gold. Now, with Corbin fully healed and after months of back-and-forth verbal attacks, these teams face each other for the first time since that dramatic night in a classic best-of-three falls format.

- 3XW Dream Match: Local legend Brian Ash, the first 3XW Heavyweight champion, returns to action to battle international wrestling star “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon for the first time in what could be a show-stealing encounter.

- Cruiserweight Six-Man Scramble: 3XW Cruiserweight champion “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell faces his toughest challenge yet as he defends the gold against five challengers in a special elimination scramble match. With all six athletes fighting at once, this is bound to be visual chaos. July is the 12th month Rockwell has held the title – will he hold on to beat Casanova’s record 15-month Cruiserweight title reign?

- Heavyweight Contenders Match: The spectacular Kraig Keesaman puts his 11-month winning streak on the line against former collegiate football player Maddog McDowell, 3XW’s biggest athlete.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Des Moines Social Club is located at 1408 Locust St. in Des Moines.

Founded in 2005, 3XWrestling, a Des Moines-based organization, has performed in front of thousands of fans across Iowa and been featured on Iowa Public Radio and in publications including Juice and Cityview. 3XW events are held monthly in Des Moines.

3XW and its performers are also heavily involved with charity work – a recent 3XW benefit event in Ottumwa, Iowa featuring one-legged wrestling star Zach Gowen raised over $10,000 to help the family of a young man whose leg was amputated due to his battle with cancer. All proceeds from the event we’re given to the family to offset medical costs, with every wrestler performing on a volunteer basis.

Eric Allen was eliminated by Jordan McEntyre. Eric Allen was so disgusted with being eliminated by Jordan McEntrye that he re-entered the Battle Royal just to illegally eliminate Jordan McEntrye. As you already know this didn’t set well with Jordan,. Jordan quickly leaped up and chased Eric Allen to the back!

Secondly “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix (Leader of MECW faction XXXplicit Content) caused Gabriel Brimstone to accidentally eliminate Krotch. By shoving them into each other and knocking heads. With Gabriel Brimstone still stunned, the “XXXplicit One” was able to dispose of Brimstone as well. But Bailey Mannix wasn’t done cheating yet as slapped Dewey “Booger” Dawson across the face w/ his managers: “Lovely” Leon Alexander’s crop whip. Temporarily ringing Boogers bell long enough to gain elimination.

Unfortunately for “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix he was left in the ring one on one with none other than Brian Scrilla. After being manhandled by every good guy that stepped in the ring against Bailey Mannix in the Battle Royal. He was now asking Scrilla for a time out breather.

Even going as far as begging on his knees for Scrilla to give him a moment. But Brian Scrilla only gave him a moment to kick Mannix square in the chest!!! Then Scrilla quickly started delivering shot after shot to the head of Bailey Mannix!! With it all looking over, Scrilla sent Mannix into the ropes but only for him to reverse and for Brian Scrilla to hang onto the ropes. But the “XXXplicit One” was quick on the attack and wanting to get the final elimination. But Scrilla was waiting for him and back body dropped him over the top rope too gain the last elimination!!! Or so he thought, during his celebration Ryan Slade came out and sent Scrilla over the top rope to gain the final elimination in the Battle Royal!!! Mr.K came out in dismay and confirmed that Ryan Slade was part of the Battle Royal but had taken his sweet time getting out to the ring to compete.

3.) MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone with Brian Scrilla vs. “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix with “Lovely” Leon Alexander

Bailey Mannix thought he had seen the last of Gabriel Brimstone from the Battle Royal. But he was dead wrong as he had one of the biggest challenges set in front of him. The MECW Independent Champion: Gabriel Brimstone!!

Bailey Mannix wasn’t alone as he was accompanied to the ring by his very resourceful manager: “Lovely” Leon Alexander. But Gabriel Brimstone wasn’t alone neither as his new mouth piece had accompanied him to the ring as well: Brian Scrilla!!

Even though the playing fields were evened, this still wasn’t an easy match for either champion or challenger. This match seen Bailey Mannix deliver a dangerous butterfly suplex,a Brian buster and a knee drop to the face of Gabriel Brimstone!!

But that couldn’t keep Brimstone down for the 3 count as he come fighting back with side Russian leg sweep, a spine buster, and a devastating charging corner clothesline!

Gabriel Brimstone went for the DDT, “Lovely” Leon took the moment to cause a distraction long enough for Bailey to drop Brimstone with his chain and go for a chair. Krotch quickly made the save and took the chair out of Bailey Mannix hand. Bailey Mannix quickly dropped to his back and started yelling, grabbing the ref attention which caused Bailey Mannix to gain the win via DQ!!

WINNER: “XXXplicit” Bailey Mannix

The fireworks were not over yet, with Gabriel Brimstone confused as to why he was DQ. He began to have words with Krotch on why he hit Bailey Mannix in the head with a chair. Krotch swore up and down he didn’t and was just trying to save Brimstone from a far worse fate.

A shoving match ensued between Krotch and Brimstone till Krotch got angry enough and walked away from Gabriel Brimstone. Gabriel Brimstone didn’t want this to go unsettled, so Scrilla quickly grabbed a mic. Telling Krotch, that this bickering and fighting has to stop. That at the next MECW show: JULY 18th, Krotch and Brimstone were going to settle all their problems in the ring. After the match whoever wins wins, but they gotta put everything behind them after the bell rings!!

Bayou Outlaws came out ready for a tag team number one contender ship match against the MECW Tag Title Holders: Huge In Japan (a part of XXXplicit Content). The welcome was quickly spoiled as Eric Allen the “Pride of Peoria” made his presents felt. He grabbed a mic to let the fans know that he was going to add more gold to his collection by getting a shot for the MECW Tag Team Championships next month. Mr.K pointed out one problem, he asked EA. “Who is your tag team partner for this evening?” Eric Allen in his excitement came to the ring without having a partner in mind or on hand.

“So Mr.K told Eric Allen that “Since you don’t have a partner, I’m going to find one for you. Were going to go to intermission and when we come back I’ll have your partner picked out andready to go!”

Mr.K shocked Eric Allen and the MECW Family by naming Jordan McEntyre the tag team partner for Eric Allen. Eric Allen to say the least wasn’t too happy. Also it wasn’t a good sign for things to come when Jordan McEntyre shook hands with the Bayou Outlaws!!
MECW 6-27-09 182
It didn’t take long for Jordan McEntyre to teach Eric Allen a lesson on being a good sportsman, but also in winning isn’t everything. Because in the end it was the Bayou Outlaws with an assist from Jordan McEntyre that picked up the win!!

WINNERS: The Bayou Outlaws

But after the match it went down hill quick, as Jordan McEntyre & Eric Allen were all over each others. Between Mr.K, Ref Waldo, and Brian Scrilla pulling them apart. It still took some doing but, Brian Scrilla calmed down Jordan and Mr.K & Waldo threatened Eric Allen with a suspension.

In the end Mr.K told Eric Allen that next month July 18th MECW show. That Eric Allen would be putting his “Pride of Peoria Championship” on the line in a championship on a pole match! Mr.K told Eric Allen that it was none negotiable and if she didn’t accept the match, that Eric Allen would never compete in MECW again!!

Evan Money had a huge challenge ahead of him as he was facing a MECW wrestler that had only two loses under his belt since he was in MECW. But with out hesitation this high flying, high impact, and fast paced match. Booger seemed to have this match synched up. But a springboard frog splash later and Evan Money had obtained his first victory!!!

This match started off with a blast as MECW Heavyweight Champion: Zach Thompson came off the top rope with a senton onto Ryan Slade who was standing on the outside of the ring. After both made it into the ring, Ryan Slade the “Canadian Sex Icon” quickly cut off Thompson by grabbing his tights and dropping him throat first into the middle rope. Then an assist by Bailey Mannix by choking Zach Thompson on the middle ropes. But that wasn’t enough for Ryan Slade to drive any air that was left in Zach Thompson body. Ryan Slade stood on the back of the MECW Heavyweight Champion, choking him further on the middle rope. At this point the “Canadian Sex Icon” was going for a lateral press and only garnered a two count.

Ryan Slade was focused on driving all the air out of Zach Thompson’s body by delivering clubbing blows. Following up Ryan Slade stood on the hands of Zach Thompson & started to chop the back of MECW Champion: Zach Thompson. Ryan Slade doing everything he could to push all the air out of Zach Thompson’s so he wouldn’t be able to kick out of a pin attempt.

Zach wisely used his feet to heel kick Ryan Slade in the head. Zach Thompson then sent Slade off the ropes only to reverse and connect with a side Russian leg sweep, but still the MECW Heavyweight Champion kicked out at the two count. Ryan Slade stayed on top of the Champion as he sunk in a deep dragon sleeper, now forcing Zach Thompson to fight for air!!

The MECW Heavyweight Champion quickly found a way out as he used his feet to climb the turnbuckles and get out of the hold. With a quick forearm shiver to the back of Ryan Slade and a Irish whip. Zach Thompson came back with an amazing flying clothesline, back elbow, and a tooth shattering wheel kick!!! The tenacious Ryan Slade kicked out at two!!! Zach Thompson sent him in the corner and though eating the boot of Ryan Slade would’ve given Ryan Slade the opportunity he needed to capitalize. But Zach Thompson caught Slade off the 2nd rope with an amazing arm! Once again only a two count!

Now Zach Thompson the MECW Heavyweight Champion was ready to end the match with his devastating spinning back heel kick. Ryan Slade though was one step ahead and ducked the kick and connect with a club to the back of Thompson. Slade followed that up with an amazing neck breaker, shades of the late great Rick Rude. Slade was still only able to get a two count, proving the heart of the defending MECW Heavyweight Champion, Zach Thompson.

Ryan Slade was growing angry at this point and was ready to end it all w/ a deadly spike pile driver! Zach Thompson fought back and hit a back drop and kick to the head and looked to be ready to put on his own pile driver. Ryan Slade found his way out with a single leg take down and attacked the Champion with sharpshooter! Zach Thompson made it to the ropes which in turn only angered Slade even more. Ryan Slade pulled Zach Thompson away from the ropes and slappedon a cross face submission, working even harder to make Zach Thompson the MECW Heavyweight Champion tap out. But the “Unbreakable” wasn’t going to tap out, and fought his way out of the submission hold!

Ryan Slade was getting desperate and went to use use his newly won trophy to take the head off Zach Thompson. The ref was distracted but Zach Thompson ducked and luck had ran out on the The “Canadian Sex Icon”. Especially after a skull cracking eziguri, followed by the Belfast Buster by the Champion ! 1,2,3 and Zach Thompson retained his MECW Heavyweight title!!
