WLW was filled with exciting and shocking moments in Otterville, Missouri last night as fans were on the edge of their seats from the start.

With the debut of WLW trainee Kyle Roberts, plus a man that my friend Jack Tierney calls the “Giant Killer” (after victories over Mark Sterling and former WLW Champion Brian Breaker) Jon Webb once again upset Sterling, and a new tag team of John E. Rock and Jamell Harris proved that they could take a beating as the Black Hand Warriors left them bloody and battered. WLW Champion Elvis Aliaga proved once again that he will do whatever it will take to hold onto his Championship as he delivered vicious shot with the belt to Jack Gamble secure a victory as referee Richard White was knocked out .

While fans had a lot to be excited about it would be a historical moment in the young career of Devyn Nicole when she was able to defeat Stacey O’Brien for the WLW Ladies Championship. Nicole who has trained under Mr. Hughes (a man that had been managed by the “Greatest Wrestler on Gods Green Earth Harley Race in WCW.) In the past Nicole had been overmatched several times against the 2-time MWR Female Wrestler of the Year, O’Brien, but in a quick moment Nicole proved that she has the championship quality of never giving up as she was able to have her hand raised in victory.

Via the new WLW Ladies Champion Devyn Nicole Facebook page we were able to get a statement from her on her feelings of the night “Tonight, I became your WLW Women’s Champion! Special thanks to Mr. Harley Race for the opportunity to make a home with his company

Winning a Championship is truly an accomplishment but now the young Nicole is the hunted when she walks into the danger zone in Richmond, Missouri on April 19th when the stars of WLW return. Already signed for the new Champ will be a three way match against two of the top female stars in country Stacey O’Brien and the current MWR Female Wrestler of the Year “Miss Natural” Heather Patera .

For more information on this exciting night be sure to check out the WLW website and MWR for updates as they come in.

Harley Race’s WLW School Grand Opening a huge success.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 20, 2014

Harley Race is considered by many to be the greatest pro wrestlers to ever grace the ring. He is respect and honored by every credible Hall of Fames in the world as well as the WWE. The 8-time NWA World Champion has wrestled around the world against a who’s who in the sport.

Race has a long history of being not only a champion wrestler, but has been a manager, owner, and booker in some very successful wrestling aspects of the sport; there is so much that a young wrestler can learn from. He is so respected in his teaching skills that fellow greats have sent their children to train with him before making their mark in the WWE.

Since 1999 Race’s World League Wrestling has made their home in Eldon, Missouri. A small town that holds a special place in the heart of Race, and was the setting for many great moments in pro wrestling in the Midwest for close to two decades. Fans young and old have grown up with the memories of watching special guest such as “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Bret Hart, Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat and the Road Warriors join the likes of Trevor Murdoch, Matt Murphy, , Derek Stone, “Miss Natural” Heather Patera, Wade Chism, Bull Schmitt , the Drill Instructor and “Superstar” Steve Fender to start the foundation. Those men and women should hold their head up high and proud as they took the chance to train with the all-time great that resulted in years of great matches as well as several successful fundraisers for many great charities on the way for a personal opportunity to be looked at all the top promotions around the world including Japan and WWE.

On Jan 18th World League Wrestling made the choice to move their training facilities from Eldon, Missouri to Troy, Missouri. Troy is just a short drive from the St. Louis airport that could send you to California, Canada, Japan, Chicago just to name a few. Troy is a small enough town to enjoy living in, while big enough along with the location so close to St. Louis that wrestlers will have endless opportunities professionally and personally. Then you have the brand new facility itself that is big enough to hold two rings, a room that is set up to do studies for the students and enough inspiration in championship memorabilia to last a lifetime.

Today WLW Harley Race leads this generation of stars that will be the future of the sport for years to come. You will have the chance to train and challenge yourself with the likes of Leland Race, Stacey O’Brien, the Black Hand Warriors ,High Level Enterprise, Dustin Bozworth, Kris Wallace, OTT Tucker and many more young stars.

Eldon, Missouri- After another great year of learning for aspiring wrestlers at the annual wrestling camp led by the upcoming 2013 inductee to the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Harley Race, Pro Wrestling NOAH and WWE representative Steven Regal.


The WLW Champion OTT was able to retain the title much to the chagrin to the Black Hand Warriors as he heads to Richmond, Missouri this Saturday Night to defend the title with special guest Lex Luger and great night of wrestling as Steve Regal and Ace Steel II lived up to the hype and much more.

The first big news coming from the 2012 camp is that the former WLW Champion Jason Jones will return to Japan’s Pro Wrestling Noah the first of 2013.

Jones moved to Eldon Missouri from North Carolina to train with the 8-time NWA Worlds Champion Harley Race to pursue his dream to be the best that he could be. This marks his second tour of Japan with Pro Wrestling NOAH, proving that his dedication is paying off.

During the week at the camp Jones was very instrumental in assisting the students in improving their skills, while teaching proper techniques and safety, first and foremost.
We are happy to say that in the past Jones has been a supporter and friend of MWR and we are thrilled to see him earn this tour for his hard work.

Look out in the near future for a sneak peak of the 2012 camp thanks to the hospitality of World League Wrestling and other top news coming out of the camp right here at Missouri Wrestling Revival.com, Your #1 source for pro wrestling news in the Midwest.

The Great Cheyenne looks to take over WLW and the Midwest in 2012.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 14, 2012

By Brian Kelley


Art contest of The Great Cheyenne and The Great Malaki won by Cheyenne Tallman

MWR fans have seen the Great Cheyenne wreck havoc in the past but in April she now sets her sights on the most prestigious women’s title in the MWR coverage area, Harley Race’s World League Wrestling Ladies champion Stacey O’Brien.

The two met at All American Pro Wrestling earlier this year as The Great Cheyenne meet O’Brien looked to end her winning streak at AAPW. Honestly, I was excited about how this match would go down. While I had fans come up to me and said that the match looked to be a struggle,

I was quick to reply to them that of course it was. First you have the 2-time MWR Wrestler of the Year Stacey O’Brien, though she is not huge in statue is trained by the great Harley Race. She is fundamentally sound and know how to use leverage and just when to explode at the right time to overwhelm her opponent.

On the other side of the ring is the demented powerhouse The Great Cheyenne. Though O’Brien has been in the ring with the likes of Miss Natural who is a powerhouse in her own right, Naturals offense is with a purpose. Meanwhile the Great Cheyenne is unpredictable and carries a rage that puts her opponent on the heels.


The first meeting between these two was a slobber knocker (Photo Credit Brian Kelley)

That is what happened as the two when into a battle of chess on AAPW’S Collision. It was by no means pretty as O’Brien struggled with the force of Cheyenne, as the current MWR Female Wrestler of the Year O’Brien befuddled the girl that is the she devil of Hellfire Symphony with the skills taught to her from Race.

At the end of the night the clash of styles would have O’Brien remain undefeated in ALL American Pro Wrestling.

Now the stage is set for a rematch in less than a week at World League Wrestling as Stacey O’Brien will defend her title against The Great Cheyenne on back to back nights in Sedan, Kansas and Richmond, Missouri.

I am thrilled to see just in fact who has the advantage in this rematch. Has the AAPW set off a feud that will last throughout 2012 and escalate throughout WLW and AAPW respectfully as well as all over the Midwest?



Also on these cards will be WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Von Erich, that will be ringside as his sons Ross and Marshall will team up to take on Brian Breaker and the WLW Champion “The Prince” Jason Jones, plus all of your favorite WLW Stars.

Also in attendance will be one of the greatest wrestlers of ALL-TIME Harley Race.
