SAY IT AIN’T SO, MICHAEL STRIDER – DEREK STONE THE NEW MPW CHAMPION

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 16, 2014

MICHAEL STRIDER COSTS JEREMY WYATT THE MPW TITLE

The fans of Metro Pro Wrestling packed the Turner Rec Center in Kansas City, Kansas for the holiday season for a night that featured Murdoch Claus, I mean Santa Claus, and the stars of MPW. The return of MPW also featured the last match between two of the very best, as the “teacher” Ace Steel battled his “student” Adam Pearce. The war between the two escalated in and out of the ring, through the concession stand and all the way into the crowd. In the end, respect was earned and given in a magical night of wrestling that showcased everything that was right in the world of pro wrestling in the Midwest.

Though the night was filled with hard hitting action that saw the bad guys win some and the good guys prevail, it was the Metro Pro Wrestling title match that stole the Christmas spirit. Shockingly, by a man the fans had shown love and respect to over the past few years. That man was Michael Strider, who would play a key factor in the MPW championship match between the reigning Kingpin Jeremy Wyatt defending his belt against the former champion Derek Stone.

The title match featured Wyatt, a man that many consider the best wrestler during the MWR years against Derek Stone a man that that has earned the reputation as one of the most dangerous men in the ring. There is no doubt that Stone is unstable and capable to do whatever he can to hurt his opponent, much less defeat him, but how he was able to pull this off is still one of the biggest mysteries of 2014.

If defending the MPW belt against a former champion was not enough, Wyatt was signed to meet the young star Geek Singh in a match earlier in the night. While the results from that match would show another victory for the champ the aftermath could not truly be put to words. Wyatt would suffer an injury thanks to the hands of his former partner Mark Sterling and The Killer City Kings when they distracted Wyatt long enough to allow Derek Stone to attack from behind leading to all four men laying into Wyatt with evil intentions before Redwing and Michael Strider were able to stop the madness.

Wyatt already injured entered the match with his ribs tapped up and it was apparent from the grimace of pain on his face that he was fighting through tremendous pain. Somehow, he was able to withstand the pounding from the big man Stone during the match, to position Stone for his patented lighting spiral, for the win. Trouble began however, when Stone countered by grabbing the referee Nick Chinn during the move, causing the referee to slam onto the mat hard enough to fall out of the ring to the floor. As Wyatt went for the pin fall the fans counted to three, but with no referee there was no official win. Though the match had taken its toll on the champion, Wyatt continued on the offense with a top rope elbow drop that was on target. Once again, Wyatt, went for the pin as the crowd counted to three and beyond.

With the referee still down and out, and Wyatt hovering over Stone for the victory out from the back came MPW’s Michael Strider in a referee shirt to count the pin. Striders hand went down for the 1, for the 2, but stopped at 3 even though Stone was unable to kick out. You could hear a pin drop at the Turner Rec Center as Wyatt looked up at Strider in shock. In a moment that seemed to stand still, Wyatt came to his feet and confronted Strider in the corner about what had just conspired. With a wicked smile on Striders face, Wyatt must have sensed that he was in dire straits because he turned around to confront Stone only to be leveled with the MPW Championship belt.

Stone quickly went for the pin, and the crowd watched in disgust as Striders hand went down for the final 3 as the MPW belt once again will be around the waist of Derek Stone.

As one year comes to an end and another begins the fans will be anticipating the repercussions of Michael Strider’s actions during this historic match and if he and Stone will be able to withstand the revenge of the rebel.

For the very first time Metro Pro Champion Jeremy Wyatt will meet Ace Steel on June 14th. These two have never faced each other before, and Steel will be making his Metro Pro debut. This should be a killer match.

Match #3: Kobra Kai Dojo will defend their Metro Pro Tag Titles against The Commission.

Match #4: Central States Champ A.C.H. vs. “The Fittest Wrestler in the World” Mark Sterling

Match #5: Iceman will put his International Dancing Championship Trophy on the line against anyone who thinks they can out-dance him — but fans are excluded… except Madea, who is more than welcome to out-dance Iceman

Just about two months away from the June 14 show at Turner Rec Center. Front Row is already sold out, and G.A. are going well. There will be feature matches — including Metro Pro Champ Jeremy Wyatt vs. Ace Steel — as well as Scott Kessler’s Metro Pro documentary “Wrestless.” Get your tickets ASAP!

Brandon Espinosa – Missouri Wrestling Revival 2011 Wrestler of the Year.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 1, 2012

Photobucket

During the MWR years, there have been no doubts on the skills of Brandon Espinosa.

Yet, in 2011, Brandon Espinosa experienced a breakout year. He sought out better training at OVW in Louisville and is now featured regularly on OVW TV with other future WWE stars. He arguably wrestled more matches for more companies than anybody in the area- at least 100 per year. Espinosa was a key player not only in his hometown of St. Louis but around the country

In what may have been his biggest win to date , Espinosa won the Pro Wrestling Epic 8 tournament by defeating Ace Hawkins in round one, Evan Money in round two, then in an exciting final matchup shocked the Midwest when he defeated one of the very best in ROH Superstar Jimmy Jacobs.

Throughout the year he wrestled for All American Pro Wrestling, High Voltage Wrestling, Independent Hardcore Wrestling, IWA Unlimited, IWA Productions, NWA Supreme, Pro Wrestling Epic, Metro East Championship Wrestling, & MMWA-SICW in the MWR covering area for 2011, has also wrestled for New Midwest Wrestling & NWA Dynamo in the past. In 2011, held the MMWA Jr. Heavyweight Championship, MMWA Wild World of Wrestling TV Championship (current holder), Pro Wrestling Epic Heavyweight Championship (current holder), and IWAU Club Championship but also held the Pro Wrestling Prestige US & Heavyweight Championship and TIWF Cruiserweight Championship in Tennessee, plus at one point held 4 Championships at once.

He competed in the following tournaments in 2011 – NWA Midwest X-Division Championship, AIWF Krazy 8 in North Carolina, IHW St. Louis Invitational, and OVW #1 Contender Gauntlet, reached the Finals in the SICW Classic Championship and TIWF Cruiserweight Championship Gauntlet, and won the PWE Epic 8 and the first ever St. Louis Cable TV trophy by defeating David Osborne, Phil E. Blunt and Gary Jackson.

He would contend for the WLW title held by “The Prince” Jason Jones in his very first match with the company coming up just short when Jone’s manager threw salt in the eyes of Espinosa.

Espinosa had victories over nationally known talents such as Jimmy Jacobs, El Generico, Jay Lethal, and Mike Sydal.

In 2011, Espinosa wrestled in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, as well as in the past in Arkansas, and Kansas.

Espinosa also made an appearance on All Worked Up (Season 3 Episode 12) when taped at a ROH event in Ohio. Also is the trainer of MWR talent  and the 2011 PWI Rookie of the Year Ace Hawkins, as well as many others.

WLW/WWE/Pro Wrestling Noah presented a magical week for wrestlers and fans in the Midwest in October.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 25, 2011

By Brian Kelley

For the past 10 plus years the must attend wrestling weekend in the Midwest has been held in Eldon Missouri at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling Academy. Race is considered by many to be the very best wrestler in the history of the sport. During his time as the 8-time NWA World Champion he would travel across the globe defending the title including the very best in Japan. When his career was done those trips and relationships would help build a relationship with Pro Wrestling Noah, one of the top wrestling companies not only in Japan but around the world.

WLW and NOAH would team up to trade talent to allow the best to compete against each other in matches that would prepare one Trevor Murdock to not only be ready to make a run in WWE but flourish with tag team partner Lance Cade to become a 3-time WWE Tag Team Champions.

The WLW school would introduce fans to stars like Matt “the Missile” Murphy, Griz, Derek Stone, Trevor Murdock, Wade Chism, the Drill Instructor, Warcloud and Johnny Jett as they mixed it up with many of the top names in the sport like Meng, Butch Reed, Bobby Eaton, The Harris Brothers, Rick Stiener and Japan’s Takeshi Morishima, Takao Ōmori and Go Shiozaki as they toured towns for fundraisers around the Midwest.

While the school runs year round to season the young talent, the annual WLW/NOAH camp works with WWE as past trainers have been John Laurinaitis, Ricky Steamboat, Tom Pritchard, Takashi Suguira, Go Shiozaki, Takeshi Morishima, KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Kenta Kobashi, Ty Bailey, and many more.

This year’s camp featured Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, William Regal, Kevin Von Erich, and Harley Race along with representatives from Pro-Wrestling NOAH Ken Hirayama and Ryu Nakata as students around the country came to hone their wrestling skills in the ring.

I was honored to be a guest to sit in during the weeks camp as the 40 plus students took part in the camp. During the days that I was there I was impressed with the patience and dedication that each of the trainers gave each of the students.

Due to the size of the groups there were two locations for the students, one for the beginners and one for the more seasoned wrestlers. While each group would be able to get great hints on how to work a match, logic, moves and where to be in the ring with hands on from the trainers.

As the camp went on during the week, the Pro Wrestling Noah and WWE representatives wanted to see the wrestlers come up with a match, then perform it in the ring. After the match was done advise was given to each of the wrestlers on what they did right, what they could have done different and how to improve it for the fans.

During the Saturday wrestling show I sat down with a few of the students to get their take on the weeklong camp and what they got out of it. One Jonas Albert Robinson from Oregon had already been to Lance Storms camp and been wrestling since 2008 stated honestly “What I learned this week was that I don’t know anything about wrestling. When I walked through the door I thought I knew about 60% of how to have a great match but in reality it was more close to 5%. The trainers at the camp really opened my eyes on how to improve my game and give the fans their money’s worth when I get in the ring. Then I was amazed at the positivity and information that Kevin (Von Erich) provided. In the end he was such an added bonus with Steamboat and Regal.

While Jonas have been able to be in the ring prior to the week, Joe Reiling has yet to have a match but knew the importance of getting the proper training and the luxury of having Race’s camp so close to his home in Warrensburg Missouri. Reiling stepped up the plate when Regal asked for two young men to get in the ring to work the arms. Though his experience was limited he gave a 100 percent and tried to soak in all the information that his trainers were given him. During my conversations with his fellow peers in the camp they relayed to me that he had earned their respect that week and had improved a ton from day one to the final day. Reiling stated to me that he did not know when his first match would come but the camp added to the fire to learn more to live his dream to be a pro wrestler.

I watched another Oregon native Dillon Divine as he worked under the watchful eyes of Steamboat and Regal. I was impressed with his facial expressions and Divine said it best to be when said “You get what you put out of it. So go for it.

While many of the Harley students took part in the camp one young wrestler fans at MWR are aware of is the 2010 MWR Future Star recipient Sir Bradley Charles.

The award is given not only to the wrestler MWR feels has the talent but the dedication and work ethic to become better, to be the best that they can be. SBC had been to Lance Storms camp, wrestled outside the country and is a rising star at Metro Pro Wrestling, 3xwRESTLING , NWA Dynamo and SICW but he once again proved that he is deserving of the award by seeking out more training to be the best that he can be.

At the end of the week SBC debuted for WLW as he teamed up on the Saturday show with Lee Walker. & Ethan H.D in a tough loss against the team of Ryan Drago, Jeff Strong, & Dustin Bozworth. Even though SBC did not get the “W” the skills that he learned this week will give him that much more a chance to become a star around the world.

In what was one of the most surprising moments for me during the week the students were all smiles as they told me that Regal had invited them to his hotel room on the final night to discuss wrestling in a special Q and A on the week’s events, his opinions and stories from one of the most traveled wrestlers from the past twenty years. What an invitation from a man who could of easily of stayed to himself during a time that he was not required to but instead respects the sport so much that he wanted to give back to the students who took the opportunity to take part in the camp. To say that with that bit of information from the students didn’t move Regal up on my favorites of all time would be a lie.

The week would not be complete as WLW would bring the action and love to the fans. A great night of wrestling as always added with a request from Regal to actually wrestle on the card. His opponent former WLW wrestler who has worked at WWE and ROH as well as a two time WLW Tag team champion with Matt Murphy and Superstar Steve Fender respectably.

I had the honor of meeting a true Superstar on the night when I spoke to the Cauliflower Alley Club’s Karl Lauer.

Master Sgt Ira Scott, 87 yrs young and served in WW11, Korea and VietNam total over 30 yrs

He introduced me his “hero” Master Sgt Ira Scott, 87 yrs young and served in WW11, Korea and VietNam total over 30 yrs. was in the US Air Force and done everything from crew chief on fighters, to copters to bombers to medical attention in emergency and sewed up guys so would not bleed before the medics go to um. A very remarkable man and what a real hero is really all about. 5″6″ about 145 lbs and sharp as a teen ager. Later in the night WLW announcer Dan Gier would introduce him to the fans. Out of respect everyone in attendance gave the man a well-deserved standing ovation.

As fans took the time to get their autographs and pictures taken with the stars, The personal highlight of the night for me was to have a few fans come up to introduce themselves stating that they visited the site and enjoyed it.

Photobucket

Here I pose with a fan of MWR, a great guy who we hope to see in the matches soon.

I have many friends that I know visit the site but it truly makes it worth it when I meet new friends that check MWR out so that they may know when WLW will be back in action or an interview with an up and comer.

One of my very childhood best friends Billy Howser came up for the show on the night with his friend Steve. Billy showed great taste in women once again when the love bug hit him for the “Catholic Schoolgirl” Stacey O’Brien.

Billy bought him an 8×10 of her and wanted to know when I thought she would be at in the future as I stated that she is a star as well for Metro Pro Wrestling.

As we gear up for the first ever MWR Yearbook, I have called on friends to help me add some special features for the book. One of them is famed artist ICON who work includes the world renowned painting The Gods of Thunder painting, as seen at WWE Magazine January 2011.

Photobucket

When he told me of his newest project called “Fantasy Warfare” where he will be drawing two wrestlers from different eras going to war. The first one he did was former WWE Champion the Ultimate Warrior taking on current WWE Star and former WWE Champ Sheamus. I quickly asked to have a special one drawn for the 2011 yearbook and when he asked me who I would like to see go to battle I chose two of my very favorites of all-time, Harley Race vs. Kurt Angle. A match that I think could have won multiple awards throughout the years. Fans be sure to look for this great feature in the book to see who got the edge in this exclusive feature from ICON.

We had posted the importance of Kevin Von Erich coming to the Midwest prior to the show at MWR but little did we know how friendly the man was. All night long he posed for photos giving the fans the famed Von Erich Claw and signing autographs.

One friend came up to me and was impressed on how respectful his sons Marshall and Ross were to them when they asked for a photo. Their comment, Kevin raised them kid’s right. Marshall and Ross by the way took part in the camp as they look to make a name for themselves. Their dad Kevin, proudly told me how talented they were in their high school sports during a special interview with MWR.

An exciting night of action started off with one of the hottest wrestlers in the country as “The Prince” Jason Jones continued his momentum with a win against young Corey Dunken. Jones would have been a real threat for the NWA JR title if he would have been able to get in the tournament for the vacated title left by former champion Craig Classic.

The WLW women’s title has not been as red hot since Malia Hosaka and Brandi Alexander went to war for the championship.

With Ms Natural, the most decorated champion in the company’s history back in the game the fans got to see a classic as Champion Lucy Mendez showed her heart to win a match that also featured former MWR Female of the year Stacey O’Brien.

In a WLW Classic match it would be ALL THAT Matt Murphy teaming up with Steve Fender to meet Trevor Murdock and Bull Schmitt in tag action. Each of these men have been able to take the skills taught to them by Race to make multiple trips to Japan and WWE in years past and their battles have always had a special place in the WLW faithful’s hearts.

When out of the blue, Murphy showed his true colors and attacked Murdock and Schmitt to the shock of Steamboat and the fans.

Murdock and Schmitt would be able to recover to get the win in what many fans said was one of the most special moments in WLW History. Out of respect each men hugged one another to end the match.

RESPECT. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley )

This past spring WLW Stars Trevor Murdock and Brian Breaker toured Japan for Pro Wrestling Noah. While the two stars were on the plane tragedy struck when Hurricane Katrina exploded on Japan. The country was left in shambles and many lost loved ones during one of the saddest moments of 2011. During intermission Harley thanked his friends at Pro Wrestling Noah for their support throughout the years. In response Pro-Wrestling NOAH Ken Hirayama and Ryu Nakata spoke to the fans. They spoke about the promises of many countries to stay and help the country during the aftermath but when it came time for action many was no where to be seen, while Switzerland and the USA were front and center with support for Japan. They then thanked the fans and the country while starting a USA Chant out of respect for the men and women of the USA for their help.

Back to action the man who is the current WLW Champion Brian Breaker would defend his title against fan favorite Jack Gamble. In what I thought was the match of the night, Gamble took a beating but refused to lay down to the champion Breaker. It looked as if the speed of Gamble may pay off but Breaker was just to good as his moves of crushing power was too much for Gamble.

WWE'S William Regal.

In the main event it would be a wrestling clinic as Steven Regal and Ace Steel would go old school as they traded moves and punishing blows that could have been a headlined anywhere in the country.

Regal would be able to capture a hard earned win on Ace Steel to finish the nights.

Once again World League Wrestling proved that they provide the fans with moments that will be cherished for a lifetime. For the aspiring wrestler , they gave them a chance to become better and be seen by WWE and Pro Wrestling Noah Scouts and for the fans a chance to meet their favorites and watch wrestling the way it was meant to be.

If you missed this years event be sure to keep an eye out at MWR for info on all WLW shows and as soon as we know more about the 2012 WLW/WWE/NOAH camp we will post it here.

Editor’s Note: We would like to thank Harley Race, Pro Wrestling Noah for their hospitably to bring allow us to bring you the fans this awesome look at one of the most important weeks of the year. WLW for over the past 10 years have been dedicated to giving back to communities through fundraisers of their exciting family friendly wrestling shows.

Thank you to the wrestlers of WLW and the students that attended the camp for working with MWR for photos and comments for this story.

Last and most importantly thank you to the fans for their support of MWR and your local wrestling promotion.

Hope you enjoyed this feature and we hope to see you at the matches real soon.

When it was announced on July 3rd 2008 that Trevor Murdock was released from WWE and his short time with TNA came to a close there was many in the Midwest that was sadden by the news

Little did we know the blessing to the Midwest wrestling scene with that chain of events that brought the former WLW Champion back home.

During his return Trevor would touch the lives of many.

Photobucket

Midwest top wrestlers like Maddog McDowell could only improve by taking on Trevor Murdock. McDowell is sure to use what he learned in his match with Murdock to prepare him for his 3XWrestling title match this Friday against Brian Ash *Photo credit Brian Kelley*

In my opinion, for his old stomping grounds the World League Wrestling he would work hard with a very impressive young roster of talent that is now at WLW. I can only imagine what it has been like for young Brian Breaker, Jason Jones, The Cancun Kid, Lucy Mendez and several of the others to pick the brain of a man who not only made it to the WWE but was very successful.

Go to a WLW show and you will see a great core of talent that have been training with the charismatic Murdock.

For Kansas City and Metro Pro Wrestling, wrestling has returned with the big support of Murdock front and center. Metro Pro Wrestling debut with other stars as well including Tommy Dreamer and Adam Pierce but night in and night out at Metro, Murdock has been very instrumental in making Metro Pro Wrestling a success.

Since his return we have been blessed to have Murdock be very supportive of Missouri Wrestling Revival. Always available to the fans and an interview, Murdock was awesome to work with each and every time.

Photobucket

Last year we were thrilled when Murdock agreed to be a part of the MWR Trading card set that turned out to be a very memorable card featuring his son that the fans will not forget.

Photobucket

There is no doubt that when the kids today get older they will tell their kids about the feud that Trevor Murdock had with Derek Stone at Metro Pro Wrestling * Photo credit Brian Kelley *

Most importantly, is the fans that have been able to see great matches at both WLW and Metro Pro Wrestling. Murdock has had one great match after another with the likes of Derek Stone, Maddog McDowell, Mike Sydal and Trent Stone.

Photobucket

There is no doubt that this Trevor is a much improved version that the first time that he showed up at the door of WWE.

Regardless, Trevor if you wrestle ten matches or ten years more with WWE, we will be supporting and cheering you on all the way.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing the 4 time WLW Champion and Metro Pro TV Champion in the WWE Universe once again.

Metro Pro Wrestling Champion Derek Stone welcomes you to MWR.

Has MPW Champion Derek Stone lost his mind? Dont miss Metro Pro Wrestling this weekend. (Photo Credit Brian Kelley

Prior to the March Metro Pro Wrestling show in Kansas City our good friend and current MPW Champion Derek Stone took the time to give a shout to the fans of the Midwest.

Later in the night Stone would win a three way match from Trevor Murdock and Bull Schmitt after Murdock drilled the Stone with a chair.

MPW commissioner Michael Strider came out to help the champ where he suddenly snapped and attacked Strider.

We can only hope that Stone was disoriented and did not fully understand his actions that evening.

Who is the MWR’S Sexiest wrestler in the Midwest?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 3, 2011

Hello everyone it is Dubray again and in this special feature we are going to get down to the very bottom of what all girls want to know at a wrestling show. No it is not who is the champ or what happened at the last show. Yes it could be where our girlfriends got that cute dress and how did she get it so cheap.

Sorry I am getting sidetracked, what we really want to know is, who is the sexiest guy in the Midwest. I have been to over a 150 plus shows all around the Midwest the past few years and I can proudly say that I have seen most of the hard bodies in the area. While Brian is trying to get that exclusive interviews with thel ikes of the Mississippi Madman or the picture of the newly crowned Champion, my eye is on the prize.

So in honor of Valentine’s Day I have set up a poll for all the ladies in the Midwest to vote for who is exactly is the sexiest wrestler in the Midwest. The final vote will be taken on Feb 13 at 11:59

Dubi Meets the 3XWrestling fans January 2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 3, 2011

By Dubray Tallman

Hello everybody, Dubray here once again to ring in the new year as we had the very first Dubi Meets the fans for 2011 in Des Moines Iowa at 3XWrestling. The show was on a Friday so we both took personal days so we could not miss the main event of Mark Sterling taking on Jeremy Wyatt in a 60 minute Iron Man match.

We packed for two nights as we planned on staying in Des Moines as we were going to head to Kansas City for Metro Pro Wrestling the following night for Metro Pro Wrestling TV Champion Trevor Murdock defending his title against my very favorite Derek Stone.

Brian had met up with a new friend from Iowa and they were talking about Central
States Wrestling back in the day and before I knew it the doors opened early for the fans that had bought tickets in advance.

Elizabeth Robb and the New 3XW Tag Team Champions The Horndogs

The first lady I met were Elizabeth Robb from Des Moines Iowa. This was Elizabeths first time at 3xwrestling and she had came with her cousins to see what she was missing. Elizabeth wanted to get her picture with the Canadian Sex Icon Ryan Slade, but Slade had left the building after his match so Elizabeth took the chance to get her picture with the Horndogs, Krotch and Maddog McDowell.

Tyler Lindsey and Jonathan West.

Up next was the very excited Tyler Lindsey. Tyler quickly got permission from his family to be a part of Dubi meets the fans. Tylers pick was the young star Jon West.

PWI Photographer Wayne McCarty and Dubi meets the fans own Dubray Tallman.

Brian was excited about the chance to meet Wayne McCarty who I was told is one of the premier wrestling photographers in the country. Wayne wore the MWR shirt as he took photographs throughout the exciting night of wrestling throughout the evening.

Connor Olson with Sir Bradley Charles

The next group was a father and son duo from Ames Iowa Chad and Connor Olson. They were big fans that have been coming since last march to 3Xwrestling. Connor has great taste in his wrestlers as he chose the 2010 MWR Future Star of the Year Sir Bradley Charles and took the picture without his father.

Samantha and her husband Cory Sorter with Zach Thompson.

During the show I met two new friends Samantha and her husband Cory Sorter. They were partying after the show at 3XW’S after party at Z’s Bar but prior to that they got their picture taken with “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson .

The following evening we made our way to Metro Pro Wrestling. MPW is a promotion that is running on all cylinders with some exciting wrestling and some very interesting feuds. As you may have heard my man Derek Stone took down the Champ, Trevor Murdock to become the MPW TV Champion.

A great weekend of wrestling and good times with the fans and staff at 3XWrestling, if you get a chance I urge you to check out 3XWrestling this coming Friday Feburary 4th
