Kurt Angle reception set for Tragos/Thesz HOF inductions 4 p.m. on Fri., July 10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 22, 2015


WATERLOO, Iowa—The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will recognize Kurt Angle during a special presentation at the Dan Gable Museum. The reception is exclusive to all-access pass holders and banquet ticket holders.

Angle was inducted into the Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame in 2013 but was unable to attend.

The special reception will be held in the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame at 4 p.m. on Fri., July 10. Angle will be presented two rings: one for winning the World Championships in 1995 and one for winning the Olympic Games in 1996. He will also sign the Mat of Honor.

Due to his schedule, Angle will not be present on Saturday, July 11. This ceremony replaces his appearance at the Hall of Fame banquet.

“Kurt Angle is arguably the greatest athlete to step foot in a wrestling ring,” said Kyle Klingman, director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. “His athletic background is second to none. We are honored that he will participate in our hall of fame week. This is truly special for everyone involved.”

Angle won NCAA championships at heavyweight for Clarion in 1990 and 1992. He went on to win a freestyle World championship in 1995 and an Olympic gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, both at 220 pounds. Angle continues to have a highly successful professional wrestling career, winning every major title at every level. He has won World titles with both WWE and TNA.

This year’s induction ceremony marks the 20-year anniversary of Angle’s 1995 World championship.

“I’m excited that Kurt will be in my hometown of Waterloo,” said museum namesake Dan Gable, also a World and Olympic champion. “Kurt was part of a very successful era of international wrestling for the United States. We need to have that kind of success again.”

All-access passes to the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame induction weekend are available for $100. Banquet tickets are available for $50. They can be ordered by contacting the Dan Gable Museum at dgmstaff@nwhof.org or by calling (319) 233-0745.

The Viking War Party invades the Missouri Wrestling Revival trading card set with the same aggressiveness that they bring to the ring. The trio Voracious Viking Frank Wyatt, The Littlest Viking and the American Viking combines power with a punishing high flying assault that have left fans in awe while delivering fear in the baddest of men in the sport.

From the East Coast to the West Coast, all the way down to Mexico the tales of plundering, broken bones and bloody bodies have been spreading of the  Viking War Party against the likes of the Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter) , the Threat ( John Wayne Murdoch and Reed Bentley), and the Tryout Show Rejects (N8 Madison and Breyer Wellington) have just began.

Fans have been showing their for their love for the Viking War Party by purchasing VWP T-shirts and hot selling VWP DVD Wrath of the Horsemen, so it is with great excitement that the VIKING WAR PARTY crashes the MWR Trading card set with an impact at card number 21.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix 10th Anniversary Spectacular Preview

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 19, 2015

10 years. 10 YEARS! That is a long time! PWP Live is celebrating 10 years of Live Professional Wrestling, and it’s all thanks to our great fans! And we have something special for our fans, on May 23rd we proudly present the 10th Anniversary Spectacular!

We have OVERLOADED this event with tons of amazing matches, and so much more! We plan on having one of our most memorable events of all time, so tell your friends and family, and let’s have some fun! There’s a lot going on, let’s check it out!

SCOTTY 2 HOTTY Vs. Joey Daniels w/ “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece

We LOVE bringing superstars to PWP Live, and who better than former two time WWE Tag Team Champion SCOTTY 2 HOTTY! Part of the memorable Attitude Era tag team TOO COOL, Scotty makes his way to Council Bluffs on May 23rd to square off with The Greece Pit’s Joey Daniels! Joey and his “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece have been running their mouths ever since this match was announced. Joey says everywhere he goes, fans keep yelling “Joey’s Stupid” at him and he has had enough. He said he plans to take out his anger on Scotty 2 Hotty! But can Joey succeed, or is there a WORM in his future? Be there May 23rd to find out!

PWP Championship Triple Threat Match:
Abu Colossus Vs. “Babyface” Tony Cortez Vs. Darren “Thunder” Russell

Abu Colossus has been terrorizing PWP ever since he turned his back on Hype Gotti last year. After winning the PWP Championship in January, Tony Cortez has been, as he puts it “a thorn in his side”. In April Abu was disqualified when hitting Cortez in the head with the Championship belt. Cortez then challenged him to a NO DQ match on May 23rd. The match was set, two PWP originals set to do battle over the coveted title. However, Darren “Thunder” Russell, the man who Abu defeated for the Championship in January, sent a video to PWP explaining why he should also be in the match. Russell never had a re-match, he was busy dealing with Chainsaw King. After defeating King in a brutal Dog Collar Match in April, Russell is ready for his re-match, and the Triple Threat match will go down at the 10th Anniversary Spectacular! Can Abu retain the title and continue his dominance in PWP? Or will “Babyface” become a 3 time PWP Champion? Or, as Russell said in his video, will a new decade begin in PWP, the “Decade of Thunder”, as Russell becomes a 2 time PWP Champion? Don’t miss this PWP Championship match!

PWP Tag Team Championship Ladder Match:
Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling Vs. “Simply the Best” Hype Gotti & “Babyface” Tony Cortez

Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling returned to PWP just a little over a year ago. Since then, they have absolutely dominated the Tag Team Division. Wyatt & Sterling were able to destroy almost every team they came across over the last year. One team they can’t keep down however, is Hype Gotti & Tony Cortez, “Simply the Best”. Simply the Best won the very first main event in PWP history way back in 2005, and now they have a chance to become 2 time PWP Tag Team Champions. With the Championship suspended high above the ring, the only way to win is to climb a ladder and grab the titles. Hype Gotti returns to action for the first time since January. He had been taking time off to heal after a brutal match with Abu Colossus. Now he enters a dangerous ladder match. While dangerous, the Ladder Match is always an exhilarating bout. But Tony Cortez has two Championship matches on May 23rd. If injured during this match, it greatly decreases his chances in the PWP Championship match later in the night. But playing it safe may ensure victory for Wyatt & Sterling. Wyatt & Sterling may ensure victory anyway, as they are known to break the rules, and in a Ladder Match, there are no rules! One thing is for sure, this match will not disappoint! Don’t miss out on Ladder Match action on May 23rd!

PWP Rising Phoenix Championship Tournament Finals:
“Simply Ravishing” Ryan Slade Vs. L-Ray w/ “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece

In March we began a tournament to crown the first ever PWP RISING PHOENIX CHAMPION. It has come down to two men, L-Ray of The Greece Pit, and Ryan Slade. Slade is a former PWP Champion and PWP Tag Team Champion. L-Ray has never held a championship in PWP. Axel Greece has led men to championships in the past however, and that’s exactly what they play to do on May 23rd. Slade has the opportunity to become the first ever PWP TRIPLE CROWN CHAMPION, but he has to strategize and find a way to beat the numbers game that often ends up with a Greece Pit victory. 3 months of tournament action all comes to a head on Saturday May 23rd! Be there to witness the first ever PWP Rising Phoenix Champion be crowned!

10 Year Anniversary Match:
“The Passion” Zac James Vs. Chris Havius

Once “The Passion” Zac James heard about the tournament to crown the first ever Rising Phoenix Champion, he immediately had a renewed vision in PWP. Disappointingly, he was defeated in a Semi-Final match in April. A little later during the event, Chris Havius came out to thank the fans for 10 years of PWP Live action. He then turned his attention to Zac. Chris explained how these two men are good friends in and out of the ring and have been for over 10 years now. Chris then challenged Zac to a match on May 23rd, mentioning that it was only fitting since they wrestled each other on the very first PWP Live event in 2005. Zac was quick to agree, however after a slap on the face, he told Chris that he is coming for a win at the 10th Anniversary Spectacular. Despite the aggression, Havius held it together in the ring, and the men shook hands. Regardless of the handshake, if you were there, you saw the tension between the two men, and you could tell that on May 23rd, these two will be giving it their all to find out which of them is the best. Don’t miss out on the history and rich tradition of PWP represented in this match on May 23rd!

ALSO APPEARING: Dalton Lee Roth, “The Karaoke King” Purple, Pat Powers and more!!

New Japan, Ring of Honor and Global Force Wrestling’s Takaaki Watanabe comes to HRW Sunday afternoon May 24th in Cahokia, IL Plus ACH Update

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 17, 2015

 photo 005newjapantakaakiwatanabe_zpsqkxj4ce5.jpg

Takaaki Watanabe has wrestled several of the top young stars around the world in the ring for top promotions New Japan, Pro Wrestling Noah and Ring of Honor and now fans can get a rare opportunity to see him live in the Midwest this Sunday in Cahokia, Illinois. This past weekend he wrestled in Canada, for ROH, and has his eyes set on the High Risk Wrestling Championship with the announcement that he will now meet Blake Edward Belakis in a number one contenders match that will be happen that very night.

The last time fans saw Watanabe was for St. Louis Anarchy when he collided in an epic matchup against SLA Champion Gary Jay. Since then Watanabe has improved his skills wrestling the likes of ROH TV Champion Jay Lethal, Mark Briscoe, Michael Elgin, and Christopher Daniels. With his tour of America, Watanabe is hoping to add the HRW Gold to his resume.

From the promoter of High Risk Wrestling- Frank Thurman

I have been informed that ACH will not be able to be in attendance on May 24th due to his recent booking in Mexico.

We here at HRW would like to thank ACH for being our Champion and for giving our fans the kind of Wrestling they deserve from their Champion.

After much thought it has been decided that since ACH is in such high demand around the World and will probably only become even more in demand in the future, that it would be best for everyone involved for ACH to vacate the HRW High Risk Championship.

You will still get a HRW Championship match on May 24th.

Since Louis Lyndon has already earned a Title shot by winning his No. 1 contenders match in April, he will automatically be in the Main Event as advertised.

His opponent will be decided by the already advertised No. 1 Contenders Match.

The winner of Takaaki Watanabe VS Blake Edward Belakis will advance to the Main Event to get their Title shot that very day.

The Winner of The Main Event will become the NEW HRW High Risk Champion!

As a bonus, we have decided to add yet another match to this already loaded line up.

Two the the fastest rising stars in the St. Louis area will collide in what is sure to be the definition of High Risk Wrestling!

Justin D’air VS Keon Option
Be sure to not miss your chance to see a New Champion Crowned and be a part of History in the making!

High Risk Wrestling Presents “Hall of the Mountain King” on Sunday afternoon May 24th in Cahokia, IL. with a matinee start time of 3:00PM Doors and 4:00Pm Bell time.
