Missouri Wrestling Revival was excited to announce at the first of 2012, that the newest promotion in the MWR coverage area was none other than St Louis Anarchy. SLA is a branch of Texas promotion Texas Anarchy Pro Wrestling and is filled with some of the top stars in the country today.

As the time grew closer to the date of the show, it was easy to tell that this was going to be a don’t miss show with stars from ROH. St. Louis and Texas all coming together for an exciting night of action, proving that SLA in 2012 was going to be an exciting promotion to keep an eye on.

Though we have not being do complete show recaps of late( with the exception of the DVD review of AAPW’S MAIN EVENT due to the fact that they sent us one to review) I wanted to show SLA the respect of at least one complete photo recaps of their first show. I personally love doing them but with the time I have in my life right now I can’t do them for every show. Still for fans in and out of St Louis this recap is for you. A great show from top to bottom with not only one but two MOY possibilities in my honest opinion between ACH and TJ Perkins and the tag team match between ROH World Champion Davey Richards and Kyle O’Riley against Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett that you will sure want to buy on DVD when it comes out.

Thanks to our friend Patrick Brandmeyer for detailed results for a spectacular show, I am happy to share with you some of the awesome action via photos from an epic night of St Louis Anarchy’s “Gateway to DANARCHY

-Dan Walsh won a three-way dance with Darin Childs and Darin Corbin(w/ Joey Eastman) to retain the SLA Heavyweight Title. After various shenanigans, Walsh eliminated Corbin with the cobra clutch slam. Childs caught Walsh with a Whiplash but only got a two-count…with both men down, Evan Gelistico ran into the ring and knocked out Childs with the title belt. Walsh didn’t know why Gelistico had done what he did, but he made a pin cover…for two. Walsh would go on to win with the cobra clutch slam to retain his title…but it looks like his issue with Gelistico isn’t over yet.
