Ron Powers has added another victim to his list of those battered by Powers’ tactics in the ring.

Bull Schmitt has been knocked out of action thanks to what Powers did to Bull during their donnybrook at the Argosy Casino last Saturday. Schmitt is on crutches thanks to a knee injury thanks to a kick by Powers, but he also suffered a separated shoulder when Powers whacked Bull with a ringside table.

This comes on top of Powers smashing special referee Cowboy Bob Orton with a chair!

SICW Promoter Herb Simmons, after Orton demanded that Bob get a chance for revenge on Powers, had hoped to put together a tag team affair for his card this Saturday, May 18, at the East Carondelet Community Center. But Herb also knew that Schmitt was in tremendous pain after his battle with Powers.

Now the results are in. Schmitt is out, perhaps for a long time. And Orton is even more enraged.

Therefore, Simmons has confirmed this showdown for Saturday night in East Carondelet — Ron Powers versus Cowboy Bob Orton.

This is the SICW card to honor the 54th anniversary of “Wrestling at the Chase.” In addition to a blockbuster lineup, making a special appearance will be St. Louis favorite HACKSAW BUTCH REED.

May 10 and 11 was a magical weekend for the fans of St Louis as SICW promoter Herb Simmons and the Argosy Casino joined forces to celebrate the 54th anniversary of Wrestling at the Chase. Legends and Superstars such as Harley Race, Baron Von Raschke, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Cowboy Bob Orton, WWE talent scout Gerry Brisco and former Wrestling at the Chase announcer Larry Matysik all came to thank the fans for their support throughout the years in St Louis.

Yet it only takes one person bad attitude to bring down a party and surprise surprise ,that man would be the  former Classic Wrestling Champion Ron Powers.

At Saturday night exciting matches  at the Argosy Casino, Ron Powers was up against popular star Bull Schmitt with “Cowboy”  Bob Orton as the special referee.

In a fast paced and hectic battle, special referee Orton kept Powers from using a chair on Schmitt , distracting Powers and allowing him to be caught in a back slide for the pin.  Powers then went berserk, rammed Bull into Orton and cracked Orton with a vicious chair shot!

Orton has never been one to step aside , quickly got on the phone to speak to his friend Trevor Murdoch to ask him to take his place on the card so that he could get his hands on Powers.

So MWR fans on Sunday night you are able to see third generation wrestler Randy Orton return home to St Louis to take on the Big Show at WWE Extreme Rules PPV.  You can be one of the fans at the PPV that can say they saw his dad in action the night before.

This hard hitting night will also feature St Louis Legend Butch Reed as well as many of your favorite SICW stars in action in East Carondelet, Illinois.

Plus, manager Travis Cook who handles Classic title claimant Ironman Kasa has announced he will be making a major policy statement next Saturday.

Memories of ST.Louis Wrestling “THE GOLDEN DAYS OF WRESTLING AT THE CHASE” May 10 and May 11”

SICW Promoter Herb Simmons has provided the MWR with the pleasure of being the first to break a major announcement.

In May of this year he and the Argosy Casino in Alton Illinois SICW will be promoting a two day wrestling event. Per  Simmons “the deal came about when he was contacted by the Director of Marketing from the Argosy Casino. I met with representatives and immediately knew they both had knowledge of the history of wrestling in the St. Louis Region. They not only had the knowledge, but had researched the “Wrestling at the Chase days”. Because of all the articles they had viewed regarding our history of preserving the history with Larry Matysik and the other greats that we have brought in over the past years, they felt there was a time and place to continue on our mission and passion of keeping those memories alive.”

So on May 10 and 11th at the Argosy Casino in Alton Illinois those memories once again will come to life.

Does Steven J Girthy have Jeremy Wyatt poised to become the NWA Champion of the World on Nov 5th at Metro Pro Wrestling ?

By Brian Kelley

To many in the Midwest he is the most hated man in wrestling today; to his opponents he is their worst nightmare.

His name is Jeremy Wyatt; pro wrestling’s greatest secret , has wrestled one great match after another from Des Moines, Iowa to ST Louis, Missouri and in every town in Illinois and back in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri.

In the past Wyatt has earned the nickname “The belt collector” for his ability to capture title after title in multiple promotions against the very best. Wyatt would become the first man to be named the MWR Wrestler of the Year and has won three consecutive matches of the years with three different opponents Michael Strider, Tyler Cook and Tyler Black respectably.

Wyatt has mixed it up with the top names in the sport including the current Ring of Honor World Champion Davey Richards, Former TNA World Champion Samoa Joe, the former ROH World Champion Jerry Lynn, Christopher Daniels, Jimmy Jacobs, Al Snow and Road Dogg Jesse James to name just a few.

Still al the wins, belts, awards and great matches have not brought Wyatt to the forefront of the wrestling world.

Is that about to change??

Photobucket

This past weekend the top wrestling manager in the Midwest Steven J Girthy set the wheels in motion at Metro Pro Wrestling to gain momentum to become the NWA World Champion. When It was announced that the former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana would be making his way to MPW, could the man that Cabana called “Porky Pig” of been masterfully setting his man up for a NWA World Title match against Adam Pearce?

While Cabana entertained the crowd from bell to bell with his masterful wrestling skills and silly antics, Wyatt And Girthy were at were at there very best and they had to be, Cabana has been to the top with WWE and as the NWA World Champion by defeating none other than Adam Pearce on March 6, 2011 at the NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood television tapings earlier this year.

Earlier this year the Belt Collector would become only the third man in the history of wrestling to capture the NWA Missouri Title and the NWA Central States Championship as the same time.  Harley Race and Bob Orton SR   being the other two men. Since that time, Wyatt has been able to keep the NWA Central States firmly on his waist against the likes of Sir Bradley Charles, Trent Stone, Jimmy Rockwell, Ryan Drago and arch rival NWA Kansas Champion Tyler Cook.

The greatest years in the NWA History has had the very best in the Midwest in the middle of the title hunt. Former 8 time World Champion Harley Race would bring honor, respectability and toughness not only to the NWA Title but to Japan and around the World.

With momentum on his side and the great mind of Girthy in his corner is the NWA World Title poised to change hands for the first time in Kansas City since Ric Flair defeated Dusty Rhodes on September 17th 1981 nearly thirty years ago?

With all the positives in this equation there is one huge problem for the Belt Collector.

NWA World Champion Adam Pearce!!!

Make no mistake about it, Adam Pearce is one of the top wrestlers in the world today. It is by no fluke that he is a four time NWA World champion who has sent many challengers packing who felt their time was now home wandering what if.

His resume speaks for itself. Titles around the country, victories against the likes of WWE’S CM Punk, Daniel Bryan ( Bryan Danielson), Delirious, Blue Demon Jr. In a true testament of his greatness Pearce was not only able to be a force in a four-way match between Chance Prophet and Jimmy Rave and Shaun Tampers for the vacant NWA World title on August 30th but would become a four time NWA World Champion.

Wyatt may have been great in the past but if he is to compete with Pearce then he cannot make one
mistake. If so the confident, ruthless NWA Kingpin will capitalize and remain the NWA World Champion.

When the last bell rang at the Turner Rec Center last week a stunned Colt Cabana and Metro Pro Wrestling fans watched as Wyatt and Steven J Girthy celebrated yet another win.

Metro Pro Wrestling has not announced who Pearce would defend the title against when he returns to on November 5th at the Turner Rec Center but if Girthy and Wyatt have their way then it could be the NWA Central States Champion vs. the NWA World Champion.

Could history be made on November 5tth and Jeremy Wyatt was able to add his most important belt to his collection? The NWA World Championship!!

Ron Powers’ reign of terror continues!!

By Brian Kelley

Ron Powers in 2011 has been big, bad and just plain mean. To start the year he would turn on his best friend Danny Boy Hawkins giving him a beat down that was hard to watch. He would follow that up by taking Danny Boy’s Classic Wrestling Championship title while ending his career.

He was just getting started, after taking out Danny Boy he has set his sights on MMWA-SICW promoter Herb Simmons. When Simmons brought in Cowboy Bob Orton, Ted Dibiase and Dory Funk Jr so that the fans could have a chance to meet some of the all-time greats, Ron Powers in some demented way took offense to that.

In an odd pairing to say the least, Sean Vincent, the cocky and brash Canadian has been one of Powers henchmen in all of his evil deeds. Powers jealousy and rage has not only been targeted towards the legends but also newcomer LaMarcus Clinton who the fans have quickly gotten behind. Powers would challenge the high flying youngster to a match. Clinton was quickly put on the spot against one of the best ever in the Midwest in his very first year. The weight, the experience and brute strength of Powers would be too much for Clinton as Powers would get the win….but after the bell was rung; Powers continued to attack Clinton thus forcing the ref to reverse the decision in favor of the young star Clinton.

Last month in East Carondelet, Power’s ego would be front and center once again when he challenged anyone to an arm wrestling match. A MMWA-SICW security employee came out but stood no chance of beating power. Out came wrestler Pete Madden who gave it his all but quickly fell to the monster Powers when out of the back came young Chris Hargas.

Hargas one of the young studs of MMWA-SICW was fired up but not as angry as the champ seem to be as he looked on the other side of the table knowing that Hargas was in awesome shape. After several moments of stalling Powers and Hargas sat down to decide who the top arm wrestler was. At first it looked like another win for Powers but Hargas fought and never gave up until it looked as if he had Powers beat. Yet before MMWA-SICW Commissioner Keith Smith could call the victoryPowers had snapped.

Brutally attacking Hargas with chair shot after chair shot while Sean Vincent antagonized and assisted the champ. Powers quickly sent a message to Hargas that he was not amused.

Later that night during a CAC Championship match between Ron Powers and Chaz Wesson, Hargas had regrouped and though you could see he was in pain, was fired up coming through the door and after Powers. The locker room had to be emptied to separate the two and regain peace.

That leaves us to this month; Chris Hargas is set up to team up with Chaz Wesson to take on Ron Powers and Sean Vincent.
We caught up with Ron Powers and Sean Vincent moments after Hargas and Powers were separated and they had this to say.

MMWA-SICW returns August 20th in East Carondelt with a co-main event featuring two of the very best in the country when Gary Jackson meets Mark Sterling.

Get your tickets and come out of the heat into the AC at MMWA-SICW in East Carondelet.

MMWA-SICW Photo Recap from Hillsdale Missouri September 25

By Brian Kelley

On September 25th I had the opportunity for a double shot of wrestling action. First off I made my way to Hillsdale Missouri for a FREE MMWA-SICW show sponsored by the Hillsdale Police department.

A beautiful day that saw the community along with the Mayor of Hillsdale come out to check out wrestling action, during the day I spoke to many of the fans who told me this was the very first time they had a chance to see pro wrestling live.

Also in attendance was our friend Patrick Brandmeyer who got the chance to join Herb Simmons at the commentator table. Recently we advertised the MMWA-SICW open door tryout and I was able to meet for the very first time Ben Simon who impressed the management so much that he earned the Announcing job for a company that he grew up watching.

The fans also had the chance to see a true wrestling legend in person as Cowboy Bob Orton was in attendance.

The day saw some great wrestling action, plus MMWA-SICW and the Hillsdale Police Department gave away free concessions, plus gift bags, soccer balls and bicycles throughout the day.

I am going to share with you a few pictures of the days events and after the last one click onto my photobucket for a complete look at all them. MMWA-SICW returned to Fairmont Illinois later that night for a great show that my good friend Mike Van Hoogstraat was able to capture so please check back for MWR in the future for this and all your MMWA-SICW news.
