MWR Trading card #66 Ron Powers
Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 14, 2012
6/16/66 is the year of this beast. Ron Powers is one of the last men that binds the gap between old school wrestling to the wrestling that we know today. From Power’s early days in the ring, terrifying his opponents and fans around not only the Midwest but around the world to today in 2012.
Ron Powers caught the eye of the legendary wrestler King Kong Brody with his raw ability that few men exist in the sport even today. Appearances for WWF (E), WCW, Mid-south, Texas and Puerto Rico only added to the legend of Ron Powers.
Today Ron Powers has shown that though his age may have raised but his domination in the ring has yet to be challenged since he turned on his good friend Danny Boy Hawkins to let SICW promoter Herb Simmons know that he had one goal in mind. That was to become the CWC Champion and no one and I mean no one has been able to weaken that grip that he has on the belt.
His 2011 Year was so impressive that the Powers received enough votes from the MWR committee to be named 3rd runner up as wrestler of the year, while only wrestling in only one promotion in the MWR coverage area. A first during the year in awards for that category
This month Ron Powers will meet one his most dangerous foe in arch rival Ricky Cruz in a two out of three falls match for the title. If Cruz is unable to succeed then one has to wonder if anyone can stop this monster.
With a bio from legendary Wrestling at the Chase announcer Larry Matysik along with a quote from King Kong Brody this is truly a card worthy of the man who is deserving of a card for a wonderful career –Ron Powers.
