“Elitism Triumphant in Best of 7 Series at South Broadway!”

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 13, 2014

MMWA  Shows

 

 

By A.K. Edwards

It may have been Christmas in July at the South Broadway Athletic Club, but the action inside the ring on Saturday night was far from cold.

In what was perhaps the most important event in SBAC history, Team Elitism took on Team Harris, the group representing respected commissioner Jim Harris, in a Best-of-Seven series that would determine control of the company.

The theme of the night may have conjured up images of a icy winter, but from this writers point of view, tempers were flaring red hot from the opening bell. Whether it was commissioner Harris bickering with the very despicable Sean Orleans ringside during matches, or Brandon “Espy” Espinosa addressing the crowd, trying to convert the masses to The Elitism–you could feel the intensity in the building from match to match.

Orleans and Espinosa, in particular, had plenty of reason to spew their propaganda. If the Elitism won the night, Orleans would take over as commissioner. While he would get the prestigious title and with it the power, Espinosa would undoubtedly benefit as the top dog of team Elitism. Orleans may be rising his way up the latter in MMWA, but if you follow the strings attached to his back you’ll find the real puppet master behind The Elitism movement: Espy

Espinosa and his band of thugs started the night off quick winning three of the nights first seven matches, thus taking a commanding lead in the race for the control.

Newcomer Kevin Lee Davidson cast a shadow over the ring in his South Broadway Athletic Club debut, as he picked up the pin for Team Elitism in a tag match to start the night off. Chase King and Lamarcus Clinton then cheated their way to a cheap victory over Gary Jackson and Zulu, to extend the Elitism’s lead to 2-0. The crowd jeered and boo’d their disapproval of King and Clinton’s devious ways, but it only seemed to make the dangerous tag team that much more focused, and even more anxious to quiet the obviously pro-Harris fans.

In perhaps one of the more memorable matches of the night, and certainly most historic, MMWA Junior Heavyweight Champion Ace Hawkins successfully defended his title against Andrew “The Wolf” Wilder.

The action was intense, to say the least, as both men risked both life and limb to position a ladder in the center of the ring and climb up to reach gold. Wilder was inches away multiple times, and he certainly made Hawkins earn the strap. But in the end it was Hawkins, with the help of a low blow and other dastardly tactics, who found himself alone at the top of the latter, as he reclaimed his Junior Heavyweight Championship Gold.

To be honest, it was tough to determine who was in worse shape following the hellacious match, and that’s not even taking into consideration the state of the ladders–which were wrecked.

At that point, it was 3-0 Elitism, and Jim Harris and his crew were in trouble.

Whatever Harris said in the locker room during intermission certainly fired up the troops though, as Team Harris raced back to tie the series at three with a flurry of exciting wins.

First, Da’Marius Jones and A.J. Williams defended their tag titles against big  and Orleans. Then, it was Moondog Rover who got the best of Mephisto, who was obviously not as comfortable with the concept of a Dog Collar match as fan favorite Moondog was. Despite Mephisto bringing out a rolled up newspaper in an attempt to shame and beat the beast into defeat, it was Moondog who walked away as the TV Champion.

Finally, despite Barackus‘ best attempts to wake up his claw and put Dave Osborne to sleep, Big Dave captured the Survivor Championship in a grueling 2-Out-of-3 falls match that literally shook the building to its very core.

Tied up 3-3, everything rode on the gauntlet match to end the night. The winner of the gauntlet, which featured competitors from each team competing in 1-on-1 action, would determine who walked away from South Broadway with control of the MMWA.

J-Mal Swagg was the first entrant for The Elitism, but he was pinned after a huge leg-drop from Everett Connors of Team Harris off the top rope. Ace Hawkins then appeared in the ring for The Elitism, but he befell the same fate as Swagg, as Connor’s leg drop found him for the 1-2-3 in the center of the ring.

Down two competitors, The Elitisim was obviously desperate as Sean Orleans made his way to the squared circle. 

Rather than fight, though, Orleans–true to his loud-mouth nature–grabbed the mic to berate Connors, who was red-hot at the moment. The crafty Hawkins, who was still sulking at ring-side, saw the opportunity for yet another Elitism cheap-shot and took it, as he bashed Connors in the back of the head with his Junior Heavyweight Championship title.

Orleans then took advantage, despite the disapproval of the crowd, and went in for the easy pin.

The next member to enter the match for Team Harris was Webmaster Stevie K. The fall saw Orleans trying to run away and plead his way out, as Stevie’s power was too much for him. Outside of the ring, Stevie charged in with a high knee but Orleans moved out of the way, causing Stevie’s knee to collide with the ring post. Orleans took the opportunity to roll in the ring and Stevie was counted out.

The Elitism was now tied 2 to 2 with Team Harris.  The Elitism had regained momentum.

Just as the crowd realized the impending doom of the Jim Harris era, though, it erupted upon realizing who had just returned to the ring to fight for the commish.

It was none other than Shaft, who was given a heroes welcome into the ring by the crowd; as he stalked and pushed the cowardly Orleans around before making the wannabe commish tap-out to his ankle lock.

Not a person was in their seat as Shaft stood over Orleans victoriously, but that moment was short-lived and ruined by Espinosa, who surprised Shaft from behind and then drove his head to the mat with a nasty thud that was heard throughout the building.

Perhaps realizing that the tide had turned in his favor, Espinosa took to the mic to preemptively announce the end of the Harris era, as well as predict a win over Harris’ last chance, Brian James.

Despite Espinosa’s strong words, James entered the ring fully backing up Harris, and it looked like he had a shot until a move from Espinosa found James staring at the ceiling with Espy above him ready to strike. Once again though, Espinosa’s confidence, if not hubris, got he best of him as he grabbed the mic from ringside and berated Harris, while pumping up The Elitism, as well as his own ego.

Before the crowd could catch its breath, the rest of the Elitism came running out of the locker room like a plague, and both James and Team Harris found themselves in very got water. Growing more confident by the moment, Espinosa told Harris that his time was up and that he had nobody left to have his back.

At that moment the doors busted open and Team Harris came out to equalize the situation, though. Both groups stared daggers at each other from across the ring as Espinosa and James continued their bout. Espy landed a big punch, the Elitism erupted. James mounted a comeback, and team Harris cheered, firmly behind him.

Perhaps it was the spirit of competition that suddenly filled the room or sadly, perhaps it was just my own naivety. Either way, though, this writer believed, if just for one moment, that the night would end in the ring with a winner that clearly earned his stripes, while the loser could walk away with his head held high.

Ignorance surely is bliss.

Espinosa would tell you it was a coincidence–truth or not–,but somehow James was sent flying into the referee, which sent the official tumbling across the ring, surely knocked out.

Espy, true to his Elistism nature, saw the opportunity to pounce and barked orders for his crew to attack James. Team Harris wouldn’t allow the injustice to go on for long though, as they were eventually able to clear the ring and restore order back to a one-on-one scenario.

What looked to once again be a fair fight quickly disintegrated back into mischief though, as Orleans, possibly realizing his opportunity was slipping away, attacked James from behind, which gave Espinosa all the time he needed to finish both James and Team Harris off with a wicked chair shot. Metal collided with cranium and James went down, unable to kick out of the 3-count.

It was a truly cold-hearted way for Christmas in July to end at the South Broadway Athletic Club.

Because of the stipulations that led to the Best-of-Seven event, commissioner Harris is now contractually required to resign from his position. Control of MMWA now rest solely in the hands of Orleans, Espinosa and Timmy Miller.

One can only fathom what that means for the state of the MMWA, but it certainly can’t be good.

Brandon Espinosa Receives an Assist from Jake Dirden to Rip the MMWA Championship from Brian James

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 21, 2014

 photo b1_zps9a80e415.jpg

Just two months after losing the MMWA Championship to the 2013 St. Louis King of Cable tournament champion” Da Bomb” Brian James in December, Brandon Espinosa is once again the MMWA Champion.

The details of the treachery can only be explained by the two conspirators involved, but either Espinosa, or the 2014 MWR Wrestler of the Year, Jake Dirden are not talking.

The night started out with the biggest crowd in the history of the historic South Broadway Athletic Club as 625 fans came in from the cold for the red hot action. In today’s MMWA you never know what will happen, as was the case when MMWA Commissioner Jim Harris informed Mephisto that he had a match that evening against Harris’s hand-picked opponent.

 photo b2_zps5d346acc.jpg

 photo B3_zps2d3fbafa.jpg

 photo b4_zpsd52a8ecd.jpg

You could not tell if the fans or Mephisto were more surprised when Dirden marched to the ring. Mephisto had been on a roll at MMWA, and looked to have Dirden in trouble, but on this night, Dirden was just too much to handle as Mephisto were able to hit the Asiatic Spike for the tapout.

As the crowd celebrated in joy, Espinosa came into the ring to attempt a post-match double-team, yet it would be for naught , as Dirden turned the tide and have Espinosa and Mephisto retreat and run for cover.

 photo B6_zps1e37fbda.jpg

Big” Dave Osborne captured the MMWA Jr. Championship

The big night of wrestling continued as “Big” Dave Osborne captured the MMWA Jr. Championship from “The Enforcer” Jimmy D , Ace Hawkins defeated Andrew Wilder for the MMWA Jr. Championship, mixed in with several of the young stars of MMWA that had the fans on their feet all night long.

It is amazing how fast happiness can make a U-turn in no time. That is what happened when Espinosa and ” James match came to a close. With Barackus, Mephisto and Brandon Gallagher suspended (Mephisto earlier that evening by Harris when he assisted Brandon Gallagher in beating down Gary Jackson after Gallagher submit to the Cloverleaf) it would seem as if Espy was all alone during his chance at the MMWA Championship.

 photo b9_zps3a09dc28.jpg

 photo B10_zpsed658575.jpg

Wrestling journalist Patrick Brandmeyer recapped the action ….”The referee was bumped as Espinosa hit the brainbuster; Espy went for the move again, but James reversed it into the sitout gourdbuster. There was no referee to count the pin attempt…then Jake Dirden stormed the ring looking for Espinosa. Both men got to their feet as Dirden entered the ring…but Dirden turned around and leveled James with his thumb strike to the throat! Dirden took his leave and the referee recovered in time to count Espinosa’s pin.”

When and how did Espinosa get Jake Dirden to assist him in regaining the MMWA Championship?
Was it planned all along or was he able to make it happen in the final moments before the MMWA Championship?

We may never know, but once again Espinosa has the power at MMWA and Jim Harris has found out quickly that he will have to be at the top of his game to outsmart Brandon Espinosa.

MWR Salutes Gary Jackson for 25 Years of Service in the Military by Proclaiming Feb 15 “Gary Jackson Day”

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 15, 2014

 photo 7_zps6fc5e28e.jpg

By Brian “Flair” Kelley MWR Owner and Editor

For many fans in St. Louis, Gary Jackson is truly one of the best wrestlers in the past 3 decades. Known as “The Great One”, Jackson has entertained fans with exciting matches and reminding them of the Rules.

 photo GaryJackson3_zps7d1499c7.jpg

What many may not know is that Jackson has been a proud American for the past 25-years serving our country. Last week prior to making his way to the packed house at the Historic South Broadway Athletic Club, Jackson officially retired from the Missouri Air Force National Guard as a Master Sargent.

We were able to catch up with Jackson was still in his military uniform entering the building straight from the honorary ceremony at  Jefferson Barracks, along with his grandson Terrance Woods.

Jackson would go onto defeat Brandon Gallagher with his Cloverleaf submission in the middle of the ring to add another victory in his illustrious career.

This Saturday night, fans can see Jackson in action in East Carondelet, Illinois for SICW taking on the 2013 MWR Future Star of the Year Alexander Rudolph.

Thankfully for the fans of the area, Jackson shows no sign of slowing down.

Gary Jackson

A Husband
A Father
A Grandfather
A champion wrestler
A Solider
And a proud American

We salute you Gary today here at Missouri Wrestling Revival on Feb 15 on a day we would like to call “Gary Jackson Day”.

MMWA Starts Off 2014 with an Eventful Show

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 29, 2014

By Patrick Brandmeyer

A new commissioner would be revealed. A massive newcomer would make his in-ring debut. Several championships would be defended. Those were the stories going into the first show of 2014 for the Mid-Missouri Wrestling Alliance.

 photo IMG_7598_zps9b772446.jpg

Brandon Espinosa and Lynn Mephisto continued their habit of kicking off the show. As the two ran their mouths in the usual fashion, they took the time to hurl insults at former senior official Jim Harris in the audience. They were no strangers to the retired referee as Mephisto had manhandled Harris at previous shows. At that moment, ring announcer Ben Simon got a text message from the as-yet-unrevealed new commissioner…the two would have to participate in the night’s battle royal as well as their scheduled tag match.

 photo IMG_7615_zps627e87fb.jpg

Da’Marius Jones had a rough night ahead of him as he was the first opponent for the huge Barackus. The super heavyweight had made his first appearance at the December show by costing Dave Osborne his shot at then-champion Espinosa. Jones gave it his best shot but couldn’t overcome the size disadvantage…Barackus dropped him with a clawhold Flatliner and the referee stopped the match, awarding it to the big man by way of a knockout.

Mephisto had an opportunity to regain the Battle Royal Title he lost in December…and earn a shot at Television Champion Jimmy D in the process. However, five other men had the same goal, including defending Battle Royal Champion Stevie K and Mephisto’s own partner Espinosa. This time around, Gary Jackson would not be an outside factor…The Webmaster earned the victory with no questions asked. He took advantage of several instances of miscommunication to eliminate both Mephisto and Espinosa, retaining his title and moving on to a shot at Jimmy D.

With his manager Sean Orleans absent due to a suspension, Jackson Whitechapel had to fly solo against his recent rival Moondog Rover. The lack of focus on Whitechapel’s part may have been his undoing as the fan favorite cruised to victory, getting the pin after a huge spinebuster.

Junior Heavyweight Champion had been dealing with challenges from Ace Hawkins for several months. He scored a tainted victory over Ace in October, then lost to him in a non-title King Of St. Louis Cable Tournament bout in November. Wilder battled Hawkins and Da’Marius Jones in a triple threat matchup in December; the opportunistic “Wolf” got a cheap pin on Jones, but Ace remained in contention.

Hawkins teamed with J-Mal Swagg against the unusual team of Wilder and Flaming Freddie Fury.
 photo 5_zps3e022cf7.jpg

The bout started fast as all four men brawled, not giving Ben Simon the opportunity to announce the match stipulation. In the end, Wilder resorted to a low blow on Hawkins and got disqualified…he may have escaped from a worse beating on that night, but cost himself a different opportunity. As Ben announced after the bell, the winners of the match would name the stipulation for February’s Wilder-Hawkins title match! Hawkins wanted a no-disqualification match, thus keeping Wilder from taking the easy way out of another title defense. However, Wilder felt he had already proven himself to be the better man and wanted Ace to put something on the line as well: His Missouri Wrestling Revival “Sexiest Wrestler” award! The February matchup will be title belt vs. award plaque!

 photo 6_zpsa348bb72.jpg

Webmaster Stevie K had a shot at double gold as he sought to add the Wild World Of Wrestling Television Championship to his Battle Royal Title. However, Jimmy D wasn’t about to let his third title reign end so quickly…when the going got tough, D took a walk and got counted out to save his title.

Big Dave Osborne seemed to be in a sportsmanlike mood as he took on A.J. Williams. It was a battle of power and size against speed and agility, but an outside factor would decide the outcome. Barackus made another appearance and the distraction led to Osborne falling prey to Williams’ superkick. The big man laid out Osborne with his clawhold Flatliner after the match, making another statement at the expense of the former Heavyweight Champ.

 photo 1_zps51863c3e.jpg

The main event of the evening had bad blood on all sides…new Heavyweight Champion Brian James teamed up with former titleholder Gary Jackson against Espinosa and Mephisto. The referee had trouble maintaining law and order and soon it erupted into a full-scale fight. The official counted all four men out of the ring but that didn’t end the war by a longshot!

 photo 2_zps9d3fdf19.jpg

Barackus entered the ring and assisted Espinosa and Mephisto in their assault on James and Jackson, revealing his allegiance to the self-proclaimed young guns of the promotion.

 photo 3_zps0e08a0d1.jpg

Jackson was handcuffed to the ropes as the trio focused their attention on Brian James, but the new commissioner finally revealed himself and ordered a stop to the attack: It was Jim Harris!

 photo 4_zpsfb2598dd.jpg

Harris acted swiftly, suspending Barackus for a month after his repeated interference in matches. He announced that Espinosa would get a title rematch with James in February, but it would be his ONLY rematch for the gold. Finally, he announced that he had a surprise for Mephisto…and we would all have to wait until the February show to find out what that surprise is!

February 8th is already shaping up to be a major event with two titles on the line…new Commissioner Jim Harris has already made his first step in restoring law and order to the MMWA!

The boiling point is coming on Saturday, January 18th at SICW- Flash Flanagan vs. Ron Powers with special referee Ricky Cruz

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 9, 2014

 photo eastcarondeletil_zps2a172a3a.jpg

Will Ricky Cruz as the special referee help settle the boiling feud between Flash Flanagan and Ron Powers at the SICW card in East Carondelet Saturday, January 18th?

One thing for sure – Cruz has his hands full. Obviously the motivation for promoter Herb Simmons in asking Cruz to be the referee was that Ricky is likely neutral in the issue. Not only has Cruz butted heads with both Powers and Flash, but Cruz is also one of the top contenders for the Classic Wrestling Championship belonging to Ironman Ken Kasa.

Plus, Cruz is crabby about the “politics” of Simmons in how he lines up matches in SICW. Ricky will be under pressure to keep order, though, as Powers and Flanagan have pounded each other with chairs, tables and kendo sticks in recent donnybrooks, one of which left Powers a bloody mess.

Speaking of Kasa, the Classic king enters tag team action January 18th when he and Mr Unpredictable Dave Vaughn (both clients of manager Travis Cook) oppose the exciting duo of high-flying Heath Hatton and explosive Jake Dirden, the MWR Wrestler of the Year. This battle is guaranteed to be a barn-burner!

Adding to the fun January 18 in East Carondelet is the appearance of Luke Williams of Bushwhacker tag team fame in WWE. A colorful character, Luke is as liable to jump into the ring as he is to lick the forehead of the promoter.

The ladies are back in East Carondelet as Angeles Layne meets Lucy Mendez.

Another tag team affair pits Alexandre Rudolph and Mr. Lucky against Gary Jackson and Jim Hoffarth, formerly the Big Texan. It’s interesting the respect that has developed between Jackson and Hoffarth since it was actually Gary who unmasked The Big Texan. But wrestling without the mask seems to have given Hoffarth a real boost.

Others in action January 18th are Daniel Eads, Frankie “The Thumper” Wyatt, Ax, and Chaz Wesson. For tickets call 618-286-4848.
