1380 sports talk radio’s Jeff Vernetti teams up with LMC to take on Max Archer and Waco

Action returns to the East Carondelet Community Center when the MMWA/SICW continues to bring the fans some of the greatest action in the Midwest. Last show during the television taping for Charter Cable the fans witnessed Champion Ron Powers battle Chris Harges, with Harges having his head put through the wall and a table being broke and after having his hands full with Harges Powers managed to survive. He later became outraged with wrestling book author, play by play announcer and the voice of Wrestling Explosion Larry Matysik due to his name not being included in Matysik’s new book, “The fifty great wrestlers of all time”.

After they exchanged words Powers agreed to a challenge by Matysik that if he could beat an opponent of Matysik’s choosing then he would but Powers name in the new book. Matysik called upon Dave Vaughn to battle with Powers with the stipulation Powers had to beat Vaughn in five minutes or less. Powers couldn’t get the job done and about three minutes into the match Powers henchmen, Sean Vincent and the Big Texan entered the ring just as Vaughn had the sleeper hold locked onto Powers. With Vincent and Texan interfering this called for a DQ of Powers. As you know there shortly after I signed Powers to meet Vaughn on October 15th for the CWC title.

Also on October 15th a special match was signed. The bright new Star LMC came to the aid of ring announcer Jeff Vernetti who is a local DJ on 1380 sports talk radio in St. Louis when Max Archer and Waco attacked Vernetti for not interviewing them. I signed a match featuring LMC & Vernetti taking on Archer and Waco in a special tag match. All the 1380 sports talk radio fans will be coming out to support Jeff and LMC.

There will be five other outstanding matches to round out the television taping. For tickets or special group rates fans can call 618-286-4848.

Look forward to seeing you there.

21) The Texan Hangman (Waco and Texan)

As much as we love the MMWA-SICW we cannot deny the lack of title defenses from their tag team division hurts their guys on this list. You would not want to meet these two in a dark alley is the big masked men Waco and the Big Texan.

These two big brutes will punish you with brutal punches and kicks from bell to bell. Managed  at times by the mastermind Travis Cook as part of The Connection they terrorized fans and their opponents wile capturing the MMWA-SICW Tag Team titles.

The black mask and Camouflage army pants only add to the perception that they feel no pain as they keep on the offense throughout the match.

Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans February 2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 27, 2011

By Dubray Tallman

Hello everyone, an exciting night for me personally as our good friend promoter Herb Simmons asked for me to present Danny Boy Hawkins with a trophy. The trophy was in honor of his accomplishment of winning the Classic Wrestling Champion tournament last month at the very same building by defeating Waco, The Big Texan and followed it up with a win in the finals over “Thee” Brandon Espinosa.

I was nervous as this was to be aired on Channel 8 in St Louis so I didn’t want to mess up and make Danny Boy look bad. In all I was happy with the way it turned out as things was going great until Ron Powers went off his rocker and attacked his good friend Danny Boy.

You can find out the details by clicking here.

The MWR wrestler of the night was one of our favorite young men in the game today high flying A big thank you to Ace Hawkins for throwing out an MWR shirt prior to overcoming the odds and defeating the much bigger Waco during the night.

After his match Ace came out to meet the fan Gavin who was from Waterloo Illinois there in the front row with his family.

Danny Boy had a huge fan base at MMWA-SICW and prior to his good friend Ron Powers stabbed him in the back several of the fans took the chance to get their picture taken with the champ.

Photobucket

First we had Donovan who was at the matches for the very first time!

Photobucket

Dominic’s dad was a special guest for the show and had remembered us at WLW in 2010 when Brian had covered them. It was great meeting them and Dominic was so excited about having his photo while holding the belt with the Champ.

Photobucket

Christian, Kayla, Paige, and Allison was up next , this was Allison’s second time coming and she just loves Danny Boy so I was happy to get the two together along with Allison’s friends.

Photobucket

Brett & Eli Gummersheimer had their photo taken with Dave Vaughn last time but the photo did not turn out so this time they got to pose with “The Icon” Chris Hargas.

Photobucket

Last but not least I was going to pick a wrestler, when I saw that Brian was speaking to Jaysin Static questioning his actions in the ring earlier in the night against his opponent Max Archer when I got my good friend Mike Van to capture the young star putting the MWR Owner in a headlock.

I would like to thank MMWA-SICW for their friendship and support of myself and MWR as we get to meet such wonderful fans while checking out some great wrestling action.

Till next time.

Love Dubz

Calling the action play by play for Charter Cable Channel 8 will be the one and only Larry Matysik at the East Carondelet Community Center on January 22nd.

Sponsored by Mueller Funiture from Belleville Illinois and Schrieber Towing form Cahokia Illinois MMWA-SICW will be having an 8 man tournament for the a brand new title the Classic Wrestling Champion.

Ron Powers

MWR’s pick:

A tournament with some of the best today will go at it full force. Ron Powers comes off a big victory of the Big Texan in December. Dave Vaughn is a marked man after taking out Travis Cook after his match with Espinosa last month, which MWR has heard may have retired the wily leader. How will The Big Texan, Waco and Brandon Espinosa do without the man who lead them to glory in 2010?

We had many sources tell us that Danny Boy could have very of been the best wrestling in St Louis, prior to his announcement to walk away a few years ago. Danny Boy has been impressive and may be the most popular wrestler in the company.

Chris Hargas has the skills and the power to overcome the odds, though he has been hit and miss at matches in the past, can this be the year of Hargas. Last but not least is the man who we can not put our money against, the “Great One” Gary Jackson. Jackson can talk but he ALWAYS backs it up.

Our Pick: Gary Jackson.

Wild Card: Brandon Espinosa- A true Ego Maniac if there ever was one. With or without Cook he is one of the best.

Now it is your turn to pick the man who will become the first ever Classic Wrestling Champion.
