Rob Schamberger will paint a portrait of Sting outside of the Sprint Center before WWE Raw

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 16, 2014

Monday night’s edition of Raw at the Sprint Center is shaping up to be a big night for WWE. Hulk Hogan is advertised to make his first appearance in Kansas City in more than a decade. “Nature Boy” Ric Flair is also rumored to be walking that aisle. John Cena and Dean Ambrose are scheduled to for combat against Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and Kane in a street fight. And Triple H has promised to bring Hell in a Cell — a 20-foot, five-ton steel cage — to the Sprint Center.

But before that all goes down live on the USA Network, Kansas City-based artist Rob Schamberger will be outside the Sprint Center painting a new portrait of WCW legend Sting. He’ll be set up next to a merchandise trailer around 3 p.m.

In April 2012, The Pitch profiled Schamberger, who was on a quest to paint every world champion wrestler. Since then, Schamberger’s wrestling art has taken him across the United States. Near the end of 2013, he started officially working with WWE. He painted the mural above live from WWE Axxess, the wrestling organization’s fan festival during WrestleMania weekend, in New Orleans. And he watched the Super Bowl of professional wrestling from the private box of the Ultimate Warrior in the Super Dome.

“Getting the star treatment at WrestleMania was awesome,” Schamberger says. “Painting live at Axxess was a huge undertaking — 20-hour days for four or five days straight and more napping than sleeping — but it was tremendous exposure, so I wanted to be there from opening to close so I didn’t miss anything.”

Missouri Wrestling Revival Logo

Missouri Wrestling Revival has a long history of honoring the best of the best in the Midwest with the year in awards. Those awards inspired by the magazine Pro Wrestling Illustrated currently honors the Wrestler, Tag Team, Female, and Future Star award as voted on by the MWR Awards committee members. We also honor the Lifetime Achievement Award for that special male of female for their positive involvement in the world of pro wrestling.

We have had many request from the fans asking that we do a fun voting so that the fans themselves can vote for who they think should be the best of the best. So in the last few months of 2014, we will be having random polls for the fans to vote for who they believe is the best of the best in the Midwest. We will not only have a poll for the awards that we mentioned before but you will be able to vote for the best Promotion, Manager, Referee. Young wrestler (4 Years or less) best RingSyders Interview and much more.

Check out the Missouri Wrestling Revival.com Facebook Group to nominate when we ask for each category on this page. (All you have to do is ask to be a part of the group and enjoy the fun.

For the first week we are doing the Best MWR Promotion, and next week it will be for Manager of the Year. Do remember that they have to work with the MWR promotions to be a part of the awards process.

Once again thank you for your support and good luck to all.

Posted by Ben Simon on October 9, 2014


The 52nd edition of RingSyders on MWR is available now.  Ben Simon and Drew Abbenhaus will host big action.


Michael Elgin


The former ROH Champion comes to RingSyders for the first time!  “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin is back in the USA and looks forward to wrestling with the Dynamo Pro and High Risk promotions this weekend.  We try to pry some details on his entrapment in Canada and his fallout with Ring of Honor.  Elgin talks about his upcoming Glen Carbon seminar for only $20!  He has a new dog too.

The boys preview this big Saturday night, where the top three promotions in the area go head-to-head-to-head for the first time.  Also, Bound for Glory X is on tape delay from Tokyo Sunday night.  Can a card with no grudges or feuds sell?
