On August 30th Missouri Wresting Revival was invited to check out Great American Wrestling in Lincoln Illinois. A Sunday show with a main event set to be GAW Champion Matt Cage taking on Dingo. That match alone made me want to go but when we got there more excitement was added when Hardcore Legend Ian Rotten was thrown in the mix.
GAW with a reputation of not being one of the top promotions around, put on a fun show that was highlighted by an exciting 5 way scramble match with two wrestlers in the MWR coverage area Gary Jay and Davey Vega as they went up against a very impressive Markus Crane as well as Johnathan Napier and Christian Rose. All five men put on an exciting match and I hope see them again.
The LWA Tag Team Champions The Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter) was in action as they took on their rivals The Submission Squad in a battle that went all around the building. (Pierre Abernathy and Evan Gelistico).
I would like to thank GAW for inviting us to check out them out and we hope to be back in the future. Now without further ado is the photo recap of that show.
