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.

Lucy Mendez Voted the 2014 MWR Best Female Wrestler By the Fans

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 25, 2014

Missouri Wrestling Revival fans love affair with “The Latino Princess Lucy Mendez continues in 2014. Mendez has always shared a unique relationship with their fans. Since training with the 8-time NWA World Champion Harley Race, she has been a double threat as a wrestler and valet for many of the top promotions and wrestlers in the Midwest. Aligning herself with the likes of Ricky Cruz, Dan Walsh, and Brandon Espinosa she has been a huge draw for World League Wrestling, Metro Pro Wrestling, Dynamo Pro Wrestling, 3XWrestling and Proving Ground Pro while trailblazing her way to Resistance Pro Wrestling. No matter where we go, she is one of the most requested photo ops asked by the fans and this years’ MWR Fans Choice Award for MWR Best Female Wrestler victory follows up the huge 2014 MWR Sexiest Female trophy this past February. This past Monday night saw Mendez add the title as an Adam Rose‘s  Rosebud on PPV from St. Louis’s Survivor Series.

Voted on as second runner-up as the MWR fans Choice Award winner goes to the two time MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Miss Natural. The daughter of Ken Patera, Heather Patera who also was trained by Harley Race continues to have another strong year as she once again added the WLW Ladies Championship to her resume. In 2014, she once again continued to travel outside of the area as well for top promotions such as SHIMMER, and All American Wrestling, while feuding with rival Stacey O’Brien. Miss Natural also appeared on WWE’s Monday Night RAW earlier this year.

One of the best kept secrets in the Midwest, very well could be the women that recently returned from Japan and that is none other than Melanie Cruise. The first lady of Proving Ground Pro combines beauty and power that leaves her fans impressed and her opponents stunned. Coming back home from Japan she won the AIWF Championship and looks to be poised for an even bigger 2015.

The third runner up is Angelus Layne. Layne is a perennial contender for the MWR Female Wrestler of the Year. 2014 looked to be the year that Layne had dreamed of as a little girl, and that day would be double sweet as she not only had the opportunity to be married to Brandon Espinosa, but also be able to win the SLA belt from Gary Jay. Wedding Crashers was the theme of the night as BOSS attacked the ceremony and Layne, causing the end of the marriage before it was even validated. In the main event, Layne could not overcome the chaos of Jays’ gang during the match while trying to pin one of the top wrestlers in 2014. Still, she has earned the respect of the MWR Fans and was named as the third runner up.

Congrats to the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year- Lucy Mendez

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 14, 2014

 photo 942576_10152867785280083_463739578_n_zps338d25fb.jpg

We would like to thank all fans that took the time to vote in the 2014 MWR Sexiest Female of the Year voting. This year we featured several of the top women wrestlers in the country. We are exciting and honored that they have supported MWR throughout the years and know that each of these athletes have fans wanting to have more women’s wrestling matches in 2014.

This year the fans came out in the masses to their computers to vote for who was their favorite to be named the 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler of the Year.

Without further ado, the female wrestler that received the most votes in one of the biggest weeks in the history of MWR is none other than former 2-time World League Wrestling Female Champion, Metro Pro Wrestling, Dynamo Pro Wrestling, Resistance Pro, 3XWrestling, Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling and StricktlyNsane ProWrestling star Lucy Mendez.

 photo 27_zpsb3d6b27e.jpg

Jake Parnell found out quickly at SICW that if you do not treat Lucy Mendez with respect then she will beat it out of you.

Mendez has been a proven ratings booster in the TV market, as the former model turned wrestling star has won the hearts of fans throughout the wrestling world since her debut. It was no surprise that she would get so many votes to us because no matter where we go that she is at, fans are coming up to ask her if we could ask her if she would take a photo with them.

The top 3 runner-ups were none other than

1) Santana G
2) “Miss Natural” Heather Patera
3) Jordynne Grace

Once again we would like to thank each of you that took the time to vote for these talented women and be sure to let your favorite promotion that you would love to see your favorite come in to wrestle under the big lights above the squared circle.

In the near future MWR’s fan relations Dubray Tallman will be hunting down Lucy Mendez to present her with her very own 2014 MWR Sexiest Wrestler trophy!!

Adam Pearce speaks out about Metro Pro Wrestling

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 15, 2013

Adam Pearce made an impact and created emotions with each and every fan at the former MWR Promotion of the Year, Kansas City’s Metro Pro Wrestling . Pearce was able to have memorable moments in his career at MPW including winning the NWA World Championship from Colt Cabana. Fans around the country are shocked and sadden by the company announcing that their last show was this past Saturday night.

Since I got word late last week that the company was basically shutting down, I have wanted to write something about Chris Gough’s Metro Pro Wrestling out of Kansas City.

metropro

This past Saturday, Metro Pro presented what appears to be their final event as the promotion is now on an indefinite hiatus after their television outlet, Metro Sports, decided to go into a broadcast partnership with the University of Kansas. This new partnership represents a de facto overhaul of the programming for Metro Sports, with an obvious emphasis on KU sports, and in the process eliminates the timeslot occupied by Metro Pro Wrestling for the past three years.

It isn’t a bad thing, either. Promoter Chris Gough works for Metro Sports as Program Director. He’s got bills to pay like anyone else and has to answer to people just like anyone else, and when his bosses make a decision, he’s got to live with it like anyone else. And while it may be a blow to wrestling fans in the area or to wrestlers like me that selfishly want Metro Pro to live forever, the fact is that money talks, and that is simply the world works. It makes all the sense in the world for Metro Sports.

So rather than be bummed or focus on what “could have been”, I’m going to focus on what WAS.

Metro Pro largely did things the RIGHT way. In an independent wrestling world that has more than its fair share of scams and shitbags, Chris Gough always treated me with the same level of respect and professional courtesy that I gave him. It was a beautiful relationship that allowed me to find a nice foothold squarely in the realm of the Kansas City fans’ boos and cheers, and obviously a steady place where I could earn a wage. In the process we became friends. There are very few in wrestling that I attach that word to.

The locker room was the definition of cohesive and complete in the sense that everyone had a role. I never sensed any egos or attitudes, at least nothing major. I always had fun, and I always felt like part of a family. I’m positive everyone else that shared the Metro Pro locker room and ring feels precisely the same. The fans were passionate and vocal and everything a performer could want. And the man captaining the ship seemed to always have the proper course charted for everyone along for the ride.

I’ll personally miss Metro Pro Wrestling for a number of reasons, but most of all for the talented men and women that will undoubtedly miss it with me. I extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to Chris Gough and the entire Metro Pro family, it was great making memories with all of you.

MWR Top Prospects : 5 Bolt Brady

Posted by flairwhoooooo on August 6, 2013

 photo boltbrady_zps0a6731ea.jpg

Missouri Wrestling Revival covers many of the top stars in the country today. While many fans are very aware of the 2012 MWR Future Star Award recipient ACH, the adventures of Jake Dirden and the expert tag team philosophy of the Hooligans, there are many others that have a very bright future. In the next few days I am going to give you a list of a few of the most talented young wrestlers that will main event shows for years to come.

This is NOT a list that is in an order of importance, just a compilation of athletes that are sure to have you on your feet, either cheering or booing at a show present or future.

 Combine the size of former MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling and the charisma of ACH and you have Bolt Brady. He can fly with the force of a bulldozer leaving his opponents grasping for air. The Texas native has been making his way to the Midwest working with the top companies in the area including St Louis Anarchy, Metro Pro Wrestling and Traditional Championship Wrestling.

Fans around the world got a sneak peak of his talents when he wrestled at the 2013 National Pro Wrestling Day. Look for Brady, the one and only “Super-charged Wrestler” , to soar to the top in years to come for.
