Top 20 MMWA Power Rankings

MMWA

By A.K. Edwards

Every month, fans pack into the South Broadway Athletic Club knowing that they’re about to witness something special.

Whether it be the high-flyers, the brawlers, the tag team or those hell bent on singles glory, MMWA wrestling fans know that each and every single month not only are they in for a show; they’re in for a ride.

Emotions run high, bonds are formed, friendships are broken and rivalries are made.

No matter the outcome, everything is always on the line. MMWA’s finest wrestlers do what they do best, often times leaving broken and battered.

Those who go down for the 1-2-3 head back to the locker room and back to the drawing board, always plotting, planning and finding ways to get better.

The few that leave victorious leave on top of the world, but knowing that they have a target on their back.

Below is the complete and comprehensive Top 20 power ranking of those who lace up their boots and put it all out on the line at the South Broadway Athletic Club.

 photo 72_zpsc3348e13.jpg

20. Jackson Whitechapel

Whitechapel is no longer a tag team champion, but he’s still a big, strong wrestler with a mean streak. Don’t expect him to remain this low on the power rankings forever.

19. J-Mal Swagg

Swagg has no shortage in confidence or athleticism. He’s got skills and he’s not afraid to show off what he’s made of. Expect Swagg to bounce back from a pin in July.

18. Webmaster Stevie K

The Webmaster had the crowd on its feet and firmly in his corner as he tossed around Sean Orleans last month. You could feel the momentum firmly in Stevie K’s corner as he swung Orleans around like a rag doll, but unfortunately, the Webmaster suffered a count out.

His strength and smarts are sure to keep him moving forward, though.

17. Mephisto

Not many can go toe-to-toe with The Moondog and hold their own. Despite losing the TV Title, Mephisto came away from his dog collar match looking strong, mean and dangerous.

His mean-streak is sure to come out in the following months, which could mean trouble for his opponents.

 photo 70_zps589a5e57.jpg

16. Barackus

Despite losing the Survivor Championship, Barackus is still one of the most intimidating wrestlers in MMWA. He can lose it at any time and isn’t afraid to make the rules, which makes him a very dangerous enemy to have.

15. Zulu

Zulu’s high-flying athleticism and heart is quickly winning over fans at South Broadway. If he picks up a few wins, he’s the type of wrestler who can gain momentum fast.

14. Gary Jackson

Despite taking the loss in a tag match last month, Jackson continues to be one of the most experienced and physically imposing wrestlers in the MMWA. His brand of power, explosion and passion is hard to match.

13. Tony Kozina

The journeyman veteran showed up to the SBAC in a big way last month, viciously flying around the ring and providing the “lighting” for Kevin Lee Davidson “Thunder” in a tag match win.

12. Kevin Lee Davidson

The big fella intimidated his way through his first ever matchup at the South Broadway Athletic Club, eventually securing a huge pinfall in a tag team match to start the show.

KLD has the size and mean streak to be a future main eventer.

 photo 73_zpsfdac1f86.jpg

11. Brian James

The veteran and fan favorite had Brandon Espinosa and The Elitism dead to rights before Sean Orleans pulled his legs out from underneath him.

James suffered a brutal chair shot to seal the deal for The Elitism, but it would be unwise to count him out. He’ll bounce back stronger than ever.

 photo 00_zps220d7d99.jpg

10. Andrew “The Wolf” Wilder

Wilder used a combination of crowd support, guts and determination to battle Ace Hawkins in the first ever ladder match at the SBAC.

Truthfully, he should have walked away as the Junior Heavyweight Champion, but Hawkins channeled his inner-Elitism and stole one away from “The Wild One”.

Wilder’s grit and determination will keep him in the hunt for big things in the future.

9. Chase King and Lamarcus Clinton

This tag team proved to be brutal, dangerous and willing to do anything it takes to get a win. Whether or not they stay together or go their separate ways in the future, both King and Clinton are forces to be reckoned with in MMWA.

8. Everett Connors

The little man proved that size truly doesn’t matter in the squared circle. Heart does.

He provided a huge boost for Team Harris with his big leg drop off the top rope, pinning not one, but two of The Elitism.

The feisty underdog will be someone to watch moving forward.

 photo b5_zps76ab214b.jpg

7. Dave Osborne *Survivor Champion

Big Dave Osborne literally survived a 2-out-of-3 falls match against Barackus, who may be one of the most physically and psychologically intimidating people on the roster.

Osborne’s size and intensity helped him snatch the Survivor championship away from Barackus, and after that showing; it’s hard to fathom somebody taking it from him anytime soon.

 photo 75_zps4369aa11.jpg

6. Moondog Rover *TV Champion

The fan favorite captured his first MMWA title in six years by beating Mephisto in a brutal dog collar match. Moondog proved to be more brutal than his opponent, despite a gash in his forehead filling his eyes with blood.

He’ll be a tough champion to beat. It’s going to be hard to control the dog.

5. Da’Marius Jones and A.J. Williams *Tag Team Champions

The tag team of Jones and Williams continues to excite fans with their high-flying ability and constant energy.

After defending their titles against Jackson Whitechapel and Sean Orleans, Jones and Williams have solidified themselves as the top tag team in MMWA.

It’s going to be tough to knock them off.

4. Ace Hawkins *MMWA Junior Heavyweight Champion

Yes, Hawkins cheated and low-blowed himself to a victory against Wilder in the first ever ladder match in South Broadway Athletic Club history. Yes, Hawkins wears more eye makeup than the average pageant contestant, and yes–he’s still despicable.

At the end of the day, though, it was Hawkins on top of that ladder holding the Junior Heavyweight strap, and that’s something this writer can’t take away from him.

3. Shaft

There are not many wrestlers who can go through what Shaft has gone through and still end up on top. Shaft suffered a pin at the hands of Brandon Espinosa last month, but he had the crowd on its feet his whole time in the ring–and the former MMWA Heavyweight Champion proved to the world that he’s still got it.

 photo 1_zps94697949.jpg

2. Sean Orleans

Orleans wasn’t able to win back the Tag Team Championships last month, but he was able to pry away power from now former commissioner Jim Harris.

Now that Orleans is in control–or at least now that he thinks he’s in control–it’s safe to expect that The Elitism will find itself graced with more than a few unfair advantages heading into the future.

Orleans, ever the conniving snake both inside the ring and out of it, is sure to be a corrupt commissioner and a tough opponent to beat.

 

 photo 71_zpsb462087b.jpg
Ace Hawkins and Brandon Espinosa

1. Brandon “Espy” Espinosa *MMWA Heavyweight Champion

The leader of The Elitism still reigns over MMWA as the Heavyweight Champion.

His title wasn’t on the line during last month’s “Christmas in July” event, but Espinosa did more than his fair share of dirty work in order to take down Team Harris and secure the commissionership for Sean Orleans.

ESPY’s reign, which started in February, doesn’t look to be ending anytime soon.

Controversy at World League Wrestling -Ace Steel the New WLW Kingpin

 photo 2_zps4b6985d7.jpg

Ace Steel defeated Dustin Bozworth & Leland Race to win the WLW Heavyweight title. Many fans in attendance have sent word that they were very upset that Steel had used a foreign object to win the title.

WLW AUGUST 16TH

Press Release
World League Wrestling Returns to Richmond!
July 30th, 2014

Saturday night, August 16th, World League Wrestling returns Richmond, Missouri! Harley Race, 8-Time NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion, brings his promotion of WLW back to the Kansas City area.

World League Wrestling has been one of the most prominent wrestling companies around today. Since 1999, Race and his company have strived to bring to its fans the best in professional wrestling. In 2014, the company turned 15 years old and has a wealth of history within that time frame. On August 16th, history will be made again as WLW looks to host one of the biggest events to date!

As with many of the WLW events, the company will be raising funds for 2 causes. The first is a young man who was involved in a serious vehicle accident. Stephen Taber was involved in a tragic accident and this gentlemen needs help! The second group is the Richmond Cheerleading Team as they are raising money to purchase new uniforms for this year’s season. Needless to say, Race and his roster of talented professional wrestlers will be putting on this event for great causes!

One of the matches scheduled to take place is a grudge match between 2 wrestlers that has been building for quite a while. “The Ego” Dustin Bozworth has let everyone within earshot know of his intentions. Leland Race, who just recently lost the WLW Heavyweight Championship, has stepped up to the plate to “stop the babbling” that is coming out of the mouth of Bozworth. “The company’s motto is “shut up and wrestle”, and that is exactly what I intend to do” says the former WLW Heavyweight Champion Leland Race.

Another high profile match will be the finals of the 2014 Harley Race Invitational Tournament. The second round of the tournament concluded in Troy, MO on July 26th, 2014. Superstar Steve and Kyle Roberts both advanced to the finals of this year’s tournament, pitting the grizzled veteran versus the younger and newer Kyle Roberts.

One big attraction to the fans is ladies wrestling. This event will mark the first match in the “best of 5″ series of matches between current reigning and defending WLW Ladies Champion – Miss Natural – and the challenger, Stacey O’Brien. Both female competitors have held the championship, but now the race is on to see who is the better of the 2 grapplers.

The main event will feature a tag team match up as the WLW Tag Team Champions – The Black Hand Warriors – defending their titles against 2 un-named opponents. Michael Magnuson and Dave Delorean won their championships in Linn, MO on August 31st, 2013 and have been on a rampage ever since. With the last event showing a surprise allegiance with one of the fan-favorites, Jack Gamble, many fans are wondering if this group will ever be stopped.

Tickets for this event can be purchased in advance for $10 (general admission) and $15 (golden circle). Prices go up $2.00 per ticket if bought the night of the event. Tickets can be bought at Academy Bank in Walmart as well as the Richmond City Collectors Office. They may also be purchased online at http://www.harleyrace.com/nOnlineTicketOutlet.html. For more information, please visit http://www.harleyrace.com or call 573-392-4100.

0

 

 

A rowdy crowd celebrated the huge moment at SICW as fan favorite Heath Hatton dethrone Travis Cooks Champion “The Iron Man” Ken Kasa for the CWC title. Kasa had been the champion since defeating Ricky Cruz for the title, then he proceeded to defend the belt a record 13 times tying the man that he had defeated for the belt Cruz for that distinction.

Heath Hatton has had a red hot summer and was able to prove that he is truly one of the top stars in the Midwest today.

The hard part for Hatton will be able to retain the title as the SICW locker room will now be on the hunt to be the man to end his hot streak.

MWR would like to congratulate Heath Hatton on his historic accomplishment and we encourage you to purchase your tickets for his first title match and to meet the legend “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff.

SLA This Friday in Alton, Illinois – Anarchy vs. BOSS

ANARCHY vs. BOSS

We all know the main event will be a battle of Anarchy’s Mat Fitchett vs. BOSS member and SLA champion Gary Jay. However we will also see three more BOSS vs. SLA match ups. Here is a small insight on each of the match ups that will take place.

 photo sla2_zps25824fa5.jpg

Christian Rose vs. Davey Vega: They call him the “Ace of Anarchy” for a reason and the reason is he has been the most successful wrestler in SLA since its first show. While not a champion in SLA the Vega has accomplished a laundry list of things.

– Tapped out Davey Richards at Yuletide Terror 2012

– Won a best of three series vs. ACH

– Pin Fall victories over Johnny Gargano, Kyle O’ Reilly and Roderick Strong

– Defeated Chris Hero at the #STACKED event

You can call this Christian Rose second run in SLA. Rose started out strong in SLA picking up wins in his first couple of matches. Rose went to a time limit draw with Dingo at the War of Attrition event and then seemed to just fall off the radar in SLA. During his time away from SLA Rose made waves in other promotions across the mid-west picking up wins against top talents along the way.

Rose is a perfect fit for the SLA roster but he felt disrespected by not being used for the stretch of time he was away and for that reason he joined the BOSS faction. Rose now looks to knock off SLAs “ACE” at one of its biggest events of the year.

 photo sla3_zps2a8cfc7e.jpg

Double Dog Collar Match: Dan Walsh/Jordan Lacey vs. Adam Raw/Alexander Rudolph: While you will see some of the best hold for hold wrestling and high flying wrestling at this year’s Circus Maximus you most likely will not see any holds in this match. This match is very personal. Dan Walsh is no stranger to blood and street fights at Circus Maximus as he has battled in two very bloody battles at this event. Adam Raw known for his amazing striking also is not afraid to make someone bleed and truth be told he is not afraid to bleed himself.

Walsh makes no bones about the fact that he feels like SLA does not respect him or what he put his body through during his time as SLA champion. That was his reason for joining the BOSS stable. The personal side of this feud lies with Alex Rudolph and Jordan Lacey. What was known as a fun loving tag team Lacey and Alex were climbing the ranks of the SLA tag team division. They had a coming out party when they took The Hooligans to the limit at a past event. Just as quickly as they were rising it was over as Lacey turned on Alex during Gateway to Anarchy weekend and joined the BOSS stable.

Lacey never really gave a reason to why he turned his back on his partner. All he has been quoted as saying is that his days of dancing and being the butt of the jokes are over. That no one will get a laugh at his expense anymore and he has found a group that respects him. Blood will pour in this one folks that is for sure.

 photo sla1_zps1d246a06.jpg

Kyle O’ Reilly vs. Jeremy Wyatt: Jeremy Wyatt is a founder of BOSS. Wyatt hates the SLA fans and to be brutally honest is not a fan at all of SLA management. Wyatt is a former LWA (now SLA) champion and during that time many fans say he was the best champion in the history of the LWA. When SLA began Wyatt was not booked on the first event and would not be seen in SLA for its first year. After making his SLA debut in a losing effort Wyatt would be gone again for a long time being told simply that there was nothing for him. Wyatt would be brought back again at Yuletide Terror and this time he would make sure that there was something for him as he would help Gary Jay retain the SLA championship in the main event. Wyatt, Gary Jay and Dorian Victor left Yuletide Terror with the title and we would later learn that BOSS would be made up of others feel disrespected by SLA.

Kyle O’ Reilly is pound for pound one of the best pro wrestlers in the world. He mixes submission wrestling with amazing striking and it has made him very successful in the world of pro wrestling and has also given him a very solid win/loss record in SLA. O’ Reilly is no stranger to BOSS either as he was jumped by them after a match with Christian Rose and his championship match with Gary Jay night two of Gateway to Anarchy weekend was an instant classic. Kyle will look to knock off Wyatt and work his way back into the title picture while Wyatt will look to take out someone the SLA fans love to watch. This match could very well steal the show folks so make sure you are live to witness it.
