In a weekend full of hype and excitement, there was no other place to be than in Des Moines, Iowa at 3XWrestling. Though Sheamus would defeat Daniel Bryan for a World title, the Big Show would be able to get revenge on Cody Rhodes with the PUNCH to win the Intercontinental Title and CM Punk would retain his title against Chris Jericho but in the Midwest, the big news was that “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt claims another title.
In a match that one 3XW fan stated was better than any of the four WRESTLEMANIA’S that he had attended, the 3XW Champion Mark Sterling seemed to have dominated the 60 minutes of furious brutal action. Yet, Wyatt would never give up and was able to show the heart of champion throughout the match as Sterling battered him from one side of the room to the other.
At the end of the night , in the final moments of the match, it would be Wyatt who would once again take claim as the 3XW Champion. This marks the third time that Wyatt has been the 3XW Champion and ending the reign of Sterling who had defeated Wyatt at December 30, 2011 at 3XW Holiday Havoc 3.
Wyatt who is currently #9 in the WORLD by PWI in the NWA rankings is also the NWA Central States Champion, the NWA Metro Pro Wrestling Champion and the High Voltage Wrestling Champion.
He now has eyes set this month to go add the AAPW Championship held by Edmund “Livewire” McGuire. The match is set for April 21st and promises to be one that the fans in Southern Illinois will not want to miss.
Look for updates soon at MWR on who Jeremy Wyatt will defend his 3XW title against in April as 3XW will once again welcome Perry Saturn to the Midwest.

Is NWA World Champion Adam Pearce’s “Last Ride” tour about to come to a screeching halt due to “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt?

The prestigious NWA World title returns to where it all began as the NWA World Champion Adam Pearce comes to Des Moines, Iowa on January 27th in action at the 2-time MWR promotion of the Year 3XWrestling.
Adam Pearce has been the NWA World Champion since July 31st when he won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship for the fourth time by defeating Chance Prophet, Jimmy Rave and Shaun Tempers in a four-way match to win the vacant title.
It’s a shame that Pearce, a veteran of the sport for over 16 years has never received the just do that the man of his talents deserves. While the NWA title and the organization thrived for years under the management of the likes of Sam Muchnick, times have changed and the NWA has seen dark days for the type of wrestling that made me a fan of the sport.
With his years of experience in the ring and a desire to bring back the glory of the NWA World Title Adam Pearce has embarked on what he calls his “Last Ride tour”.
His last trip to the Midwest was memorable to say the least as he made his way to Kansas City for Metro Pro Wrestling. The Challenger was Michael Strider, the setting a packed house at the Turner Rec Center on November 5th, 2011.
Earlier in the night at Metro Pro Wrestling, Jeremy Wyatt and his manager Steven J Girthy would let the fans know that it was he who deserved a match against Adam Pearce. Bringing to the ring Wyatt read the hype surrounding him in the year 2011 including the KC Star where they ranked him the #1 wrestler in Kansas City and copies of the MWR article “Does Steven J Girthy have Jeremy Wyatt poised to become the NWA Champion of the World on Nov 5th at Metro Pro Wrestling ?”
Yet, it would be a classic matchup in the main event as Strider looked to have earned his boyhood dream to become the NWA World Champion when he pinned Pearce as referee Michael Crase Jr. counted 1-2-3.
While Strider went to celebrate with his fans and father, out to the ring came MPW commissioner Matt Murphy. Murphy claimed that Pearce’s feet were on the bottom of the ropes as Crase Jr. made the final third count to the mat.
Murphy on the mic taunted Strider stating that “You don’t want to win the title like that; you want to be a man and win it like a Champion.”
Strider unwisely would make the decision to not take the title that way and agreed to have the match continue. It would be minutes later that Pearce would benefit a little assistance from Murphy when he tripped Strider, allowing Pearce to strike and use a roll up with his feet on the ropes to retain the title.
The next day I would travel to Collinsville, Illinois to cover Ring of Honor where fans came up to me, asking if in fact Michael Strider had become the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion as they had seen on the NWA website, then was deleted as the NWA webmaster caught word of what had occurred. Unfortunately, I had to deliver the bad news that Pearce along with Murphy had stolen the Worlds Championship from the former NWA Central States Champion Strider.
Little did we know how someone’s missed opportunities would allow Wyatt to get his wish at the NWA world title.
Fast forward to the final show of the year at 3Xrestling on December 30th. 3XWrestling Champion Jeremy Wyatt loses a close match against Mark Sterling after the “Iron Man” used the ringside bell to help Sterling began his first 3XWrestling title reign.
In the locker room, 3XWrestling camera’s captured Todd Countryman offering Sterling the contract. Let’s watch this once more to see how Wyatt and not Sterling received this dream match against the World Champion Adam Pearce.
So mark your calendars, ask for the day off, and make your way to Des Moines, Iowa at ALL PLAY as the Champion of the World Adam Pearce comes to defend his title against the 2-time 3XW Champion Wyatt. Wyatt is currently the NWA Central States Champion and only the 3rd man in the history of the NWA to hold both the NWA Central States and the NWA Missouri title (He did this last year, Harley Race and Bob Orton being the other two men) Jeremy Wyatt.
Though Adam Pearce used some underhand tactics to defeat Strider at Metro Pro Wrestling, make no doubt about it that he can defeat Wyatt in many many ways. Pearce in the past has successfully defended the NWA World Heavyweight Championship against Bryan Danielson (WWE’S Daniel Bryan, the reigning World Heavyweight Champion) and Danielson is just one name on a list of victims.
Pearce brings the ring an old school high impact attack, standing 6’2, 245 pounds he will unleash a fury of moves including the Figure four leglock, Flying fist drop, and the Middle-rope elbow drop setting his opponents up for The Rack Bomb (Backbreaker rack dropped into a powerbomb) or the vicious Jumping piledriver to retain the title.
Quite honestly, after hours of studying tape of Pearce in action, you can see many of his opponents in fear of those finishers from the start of the match.
One man who will not have fear in his eyes is the “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt. Wyatt considered by many to be the best wrestler in the Midwest, has been dying for this opportunity to make a name for himself. He knows that opportunities likes these are very rare for wrestlers in the area. Quite possibly the most hated man in the Midwest, 3XWrestling fans have come to love him for his multiple matches of the year and giving a 110% during every match.
Wyatt most likely will be the first to tell you he is not doing this for the fans, yet he is the fans best chance to bring back the NWA Worlds title back home to the Midwest.
Is Pearce making a mistake as he makes good on his promise to “GIVE BACK to a deserving industry that has given me 16+ years of experiences that I’ll cherish forever.”
Pearce, a fighting champion will be around the world in Oberhausen, Germany defending the title a week prior to his return to the Midwest. Fans in Iowa can prepare for a double shot starting off with match against Wyatt at 3XW then heading to Council Bluffs, Iowa for Magnum Pro Wrestling to take on “ Babyface” Tony Cortez the very next night.
With one Lighting Spiral from Wyatt on January 27th at 3XWrestling, the NWA president Robert Trobich and Magnum Pro may be scrambling late Friday night to come up with a plan to resign a rematch against the NEW NWA World Champion Jeremy Wyatt and Adam Pearce immediately.
When it is all said and done, I want the NWA and Adam Pearce don’t say that Missouri Wrestling Revival didn’t try to warn you of “The Belt Collector”.

Fans around the country have fallen in love with “Rock and Roll” Mike Sydal. The brother to WWE Superstar Evan Bourne said it best during his presentation of the MWR Wrestler of the year plaque, “In 1998 MWR ranked him the number 98 in the MWR 100 wrestlers in the Midwest and two years later I was named the MWR Wrestler of the year.
Sydal would not just sit back and live off the name of his brother. From the start of his career Sydal went on the road to earn the reputation of one of the top young stars in pro wrestling today. Sydal would spent the next two years traveling around the country looking for the top competition in almost every respectful promotion in the country including Ring of Honor on Direct TV HDNET and Chikara .
Always looking to get better while training with the likes of Ring of Honor school, trainer Mark Sterling, took the opportunity to train at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling Academy and their annual WLW/Pro Wrestling Noah camp.
The hard work would earn him the prestigious title of being named the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illustrated rookie of the year. Several of the names in the past to be honored with his award are Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Bob Backlund, Kurt Angle and Randy Orton.
His work ethic and professionalism made Sydal a must see draw all around the Midwest when he would return to the area. Great matches at 3XW, Metro Pro Wrestling ,MMWA-SICW and all around the Midwest was just one of the many reasons why the MWR awards committee’s chose Mike Sydal to be named the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the year.

It is time for the NWA to step up and bring the best in the tournament for the NWA JR World Championship tournament?
Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 31, 2011

The NWA was once the King of wrestling. In my heart the three letters combined will always have a place in my heart as well as many fans around the world.
Many believe that the NWA is long and gone, but I have faith that the King will rise from the ashes to become a true player in the very near future. If it is to happen it will have to start in 2011.
When two champions the NWA World Champion the Sheik was stripped of his belt and the NWA Junior World Champion Craig Classic walked away from the title, it put the world on notice. How would the mighty NWA respond to the actions of Sheik and Classic?
With the rumblings of a tournament for the NWA Junior title I have looked closely at the players that can bring honor and prestige back the NWA as they prepare for their NWA Junior Tournament on Oct 7th.
Four men stand out among the rest.
First off we have Tony Kozina , a former two time NWA Junior Champion, Kozina has been very vocal in his desire to regain the NWA Junior Championship. While Kozina has trained none other than ROH World Champion Davey Richards as well as rising superstar Kyle O’Reilly he still is a main event player.
Recently, Kozina has been seen wrestling for Ring Of Honor and top notch promotions around the country . A master of controlling a match from start to finish, no wrestler is more focused to become the NWA Junior Champion.
One of the most traveled stars in the sport today Kozina has felt that Classic was his for the taking and had a match set up in October with Classic prior to the Champ surrendering the title.
Also in the running would be none other than the Tokyo Monster Kahagas. The feared veteran of the sport has traveled worldwide while taking on a who’s who in wrestling today. He quickly became a draw in the Midwest in a very short time while many await his return.
This year on June 18, 2011, in Sherman, TX, Kahagas participated in the first ever GWT Indy World Championship and earned runner up for the title. Legendary Judges that were present throughout the Bracket on Sunday and the Championship match were Harley Race, Mando Guerrero, Tugboat Taylor, Stan Hansen Iceman King Parsons, Col. Buck Robley, WCW’s Awesome Kong, Chris Youngblood, Head Ref. James Beard and Japan’s NOAH, GM Ryu Nakada. According to the Judges, it could have gone either way; both wrestlers have tremendous Talent and work hard. Going into Sunday’s 32-Man Bracket, the Tokyo Monster Kahagas swept the first three days of the round robin tournament had a Bye in the 1st Round with the highest overall score. In the final match of the tournament Kahagas would lose by one point to 16 year Heavyweight veteran Tim Storm.
Kahagas has been in the ring with former NWA World Champions Dusty Rhodes, Blue Demon JR, Tony Kozina and many other top stars in the world. Several of today and yesterday stars have contacted MWR to let us know that they feel as if Kahagas can restore honor back to the NWA.
Then one of the hottest rising stars in the Midwest, Jason Jones. Jason Jones in 2011 won the first ever two day tournament for the Harley Race Invitational earlier this summer cementing him as one of the top men in the sport. With victories over Jeff Strong, Mark Sterling and Ryan Drago. Jones would receive his trophy from two legends that night in Race himself and WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Pipper. Jones is currently one of the top contenders for Harley Race’s World League Wrestling title and with training from both Harley, Pro Wrestling Noah and WWE scouts at the WLW/Pro Wrestling Noah Camp in October in Eldon Missouri there is no doubt that he is about to get that much more dangerous.
Last, but not least we have the NWA Central States Champion Jeremy Wyatt . The NWA in its heyday had the NWA Central States title known as a stepping stone for the NWA World Title. Jeremy Wyatt this year alone captured the NWA Central States and Missouri title in 2011 along with the 3XW and HVW championship.Wyatt joined an elite class of the only people to hold the NWA Central states and Missouri Championship at the same time along with Harley Race and Cowboy Bob Orton Jr.
3-time MWR matche of the year winner, Wyatt has won so many titles that he is named the “Belt Collector” and a classic 60 min Iron Man match this year with Mark Sterling is why many fans in the Midwest feel as if he is the number one wrestler not signed by WWE/TNA or ROH today.
What a crime it has been to have a man that has headlined the most main events around the Midwest for the past four years not even mentioned in either the NWA Junior and World title.
It is time for the NWA to bring the best to showcase their skills in the NWA Tournament in 2011.

Fans of Missouri Wrestling Revival have often asked for us to have a Rookie of the Year award. After some serious thoughts, we thought it may be easier to honor that one guy or women who we feel has the talent, skills and work ethic to make it to the next level in our sport.
Easy was by far the wrong word, after taking some time to look all around the Midwest I quickly realized that there are most defintly some hard working wrestlers with skills and talent galore.
That’s why I have to believe that this award is very deserving. The MWR Fans are full aware of the talents of Mark Sterling and Jeremy Wyatt, both former MWR Wrestlers of the Year but this is for that guy who could very well be a future MWR Wrestler of the Year and more importantly have a chance to sign with the WWE.
So without further ado, we are proud to announce the first ever MWR Future Star- Sir Bradley Charles
Sir Bradley Charles made his way to Canada to train with Lance Storm at his Wrestling Academy. Charles has worked overseas before heading back home to The King’s Court of Kansas City.
In the Midwest SBC has made his way to work a who’s who of promotions in the MWR Coverage area including HVW, PWP,3XW,NWA Dynamo and has been OVER in his hometown of Kansas City with the upstart promotion Metro Pro Wrestling.
SBC chants are often heard during his matches with some of the very best in the Midwest including Domino Rivera, Shane Hollister, Mike Sydal, Flash Flannigan and Jayden Draigo.
Recently he has been at odds with Mark Sterling in a battle over the crossfit training. Sir Bradley Charles would come up short in the challenge but there is no doubt that he is a first round pick in any promotion in the Midwest.
While SBC has youth on his side, it’s the desire to become better with each and every match that allows promoters and the fans to see that “it” factor just waiting to explode.
It is with great pleasure that we name Sir Bradley Charles as the first MWR Future Star award. J
