Ron Powers Wins The Brody Memorial Battle Royal by Patrick Brandmeyer

Cowboy Bob Orton was one of the top wrestlers of his day. Here he is seen watching one of his classic matches at the Wrestling at the Chase in between meeting the fans.

Fans were thrilled to pick up some rare wrestling memorabilia from AWA Ring announcer Mick Karch.

A great opportunity to meet the legends and get there autographs for the past few years has been SICW.

Stan Hansen loved to meet his fans young and old.

A great photo of a father and son along with Mick Karch… This young man wearing the the Andre shirt is so awesome.

The 2013 MWR Wrestler of the Year Jake Dirden made sure to get there early to pick the brain of the legend Stan Hansen for over twenty minutes.

 photo 10_zpsdx5oac7y.jpg

Larry Matysik is one of the greatest wrestling minds today, unfortunately he was unable to be there, but behind every great man is a great women, for Larry it is his lovely wife Pat.

 photo 9_zpseciwpmmg.jpg

Justin Berry rocks the Rob Schamberger Brody shirt while meeting his lovely wife Barbara Goodish.

A standing-room-only audience packed the East Carondelet Community Center for Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling’s biggest show of the year. Fans flooded the building to honor the memories of both the anniversary of “Wrestling At The Chase” and the late King Kong “Bruiser” Brody.

The special guests were out in force. Along with Director Of Affairs Cowboy Bob Orton, the visitors in the house included Brody’s widow Barbara Goodish, Brody’s former tag partner Stan “The Lariat” Hansen, Larry Matysik’s wife Pat, and former AWA announcer Mick Karch. Promoter Herb Simmons acknowledged his guests at the top of the show before ring announcer Drew Abbenhaus kicked off the action.

In the opener, “Dirdey” Jake Dirden joined forces with Bobby D and “Dead Sexy” Daniel Gunner to take on the trio of Brandon Espinosa, “Volatile” Curtis Wylde, and Bubba Troll.

 photo 31_zps1wl4xzg5.jpg

“Volatile” Curtis Wylde was in the house.

 photo 11_zpsajuwj6rf.jpg

 photo 12_zpspub6hx8s.jpg

As always, Wylde was accompanied by his “Number-One Ginja” Wyldefyre.
 photo 13_zpsuoqktfab.jpg

It was a chaotic bout, as one would expect with so much humanity in one ring…as everyone brawled, Wyldefyre accidentally tripped her own man and that led to Bobby D finishing off Wylde with a Pedigree.

Two tough guys did battle as Big Jim Hoffarth locked horns with Ax. The two had crossed paths a few times in recent months without a decisive conclusion and were looking to settle the score on this meaningful night.
 photo 15_zpsyyv3pncq.jpg

 photo 14_zps5nke42nc.jpg

Big Jim with the body slam on Ax.

The battle spilled to the floor in the early minutes and Hoffarth went for a clothesline, but struck the ringpost when Ax moved out of the way. Ax pounced on the injury and targeted the bad limb with no mercy…Big Jim attempted to fight back, but had trouble defending himself and the referee finally stopped the bout out of concern for Hoffarth’s physical well-being. Ax was the winner…but Hoffarth still wanted a piece of his rival.

 photo 20_zpszienjwo8.jpg

Chaz Wesson made quick work of Waco.

“The Old School Warrior” Chaz Wesson was out to make a statement and he did so at the expense of the masked man Waco.

Wesson unleashed a flurry of offense from the opening bell, pinning Waco in about a minute with a cross-bodyblock off the top rope…proving himself worthy of being in the thick of the Classic Wrestling Championship picture.

 photo 18_zpsxyiurkrw.jpg

The Great One Gary Jackso.

“Night Train” Gary Jackson(w/ Big Daddy) had a literally huge task ahead of him in the form of the 300-plus-pound Barackus.

Jackson was attempting to rebound from his April loss of the Classic Title to Flash Flanagan, but he had trouble dealing with the size disadvantage. Barackus crushed the veteran with a huge Samoan Drop, but experience was the deciding factor as Barackus took his time on the pin attempt.
 photo 19_zps98bjmwh4.jpg

That allowed Gary to crucifix his shoulders to the mat for the pinfall, using the big man’s own size against him.

Herb Simmons interviewed Stan Hansen and Barbara Goodish about the night’s main event: The Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal. As noted, the bout held special significance for them due to their respective connections to its namesake…many contenders would be in the ring to earn that trophy, but only one could walk away with it.

Midwest newcomer Paloma Starr went one-on-one with “The Queen Of Chaos” Lucy Mendez…the two had a wild fight in a mixed tag the previous month, but this time there would be no tag team partners to hold them back.

 photo 17_zpsr4m3qmrg.jpg

Paloma Starr has the 2014 MWR Female Wrestler of the Year Lucy Mendez in deep trouble.

 photo 16_zpsoaoqmmii.jpg

Starr had the power advantage, but Lucy’s experience would play a pivotal role in this one. She managed to outmaneuver Paloma and deliver a hanging DDT for the victory, continuing her run of success in the St. Louis area.

Two men at career crossroads faced each other as Keith Smith Jr. collided with “Ironman” Ken Kasa (accompanied by Travis Cook). Kasa was hoping to get back on track toward the Classic Wrestling Championship while the upstart Smith had his sights set on his first one-on-one victory.

 photo 22_zpsqvlw3yhj.jpg

Kasa established his early dominance with his signature shotgun dropkick right after the opening bell…he could have ended the match at that point, but chose to dish out more punishment. Chaz Wesson came out to root for his protege and that drew the ire of Travis Cook…however, the manager accidentally distracted his own charge and Keith Jr. was able to fire back with a football-style leg dive.
 photo 21_zpszmahyjei.jpg

With Kasa down on the mat, Smith hooked his father’s signature figure-four leglock and Kasa was forced to tap out!

After the match, things broke down between Kasa and Cook…Kasa was able to leave the ring without his manager, but caught him in the act of attempting a cheapshot with a chain around his fist. Kasa cornered Cook and prepared to lower the boom, but his stablemate Chris Hargas clipped his injured knee from behind. Hargas and Cook dished out a two-on-one beatdown on the wounded competitor, essentially downsizing Ken Kasa from the Travis Cook Organization.

 photo 23_zpsh7rswxc4.jpg

The end of an era as Travis Cook turns on the former SICW Champion Ken Kasa.

Travis Cook had a full evening as Hargas teamed with the Mongolian madman Attila Khan against the unlikely duo of Ricky Cruz and Ron Powers. The longtime rivals had common enemies and worked surprisingly well against Cook’s team, but underhanded tactics made the difference in this match.

 photo 24_zpsv2ywc7cs.jpg

 photo 26_zpslromfphk.jpg

The match was chaotic and wild as SICW ring announcer Abbenhaus runs for his life as the action was everywhere.

As the referee’s attention was diverted, Khan stunned Cruz with a low blow before jabbing him in the throat with a foreign object passed into the ring by Travis Cook. After that, Khan scored the tainted pinfall on the former Classic Wrestling Champion.

 photo 27_zpssege9gox.jpg

The Classic Wrestling Championship was at stake as two-time titleholder Flash Flanagan defended against “The Man Of Tomorrow” Daniel Eads. Eads had received MWR’s “Future Star Award” and hoped to carry that momentum into a big victory, but Flash’s years of experience were too much to overcome.
 photo 28_zpsgouakfz0.jpg

 photo 29_zpsbqlwfytj.jpg

 photo 30_zpswpbnxytv.jpg

Daniel Eads is one of the 2014 MWR Future Stars of the Year, but Flanagan is one of the baddest men in the country. Eads put up a fight but the wily veteran once again was a step ahead to keep the title.

A missed move caused Eads to land painfully on the second turnbuckle and Flanagan followed up with a double-stomp from the top rope as Eads was hung up on the ropes; that allowed the champion to retain his title.

 photo 33_zpscw7wnggs.jpg

This young fan was rooting for Ricky Cruz or Ron Powers to win the battle Royal.

The ring filled with powerhouses at the end of the night, all competing for the honor of being the first holder of the Bruiser Brody Memorial Battle Royal trophy.

 photo 34_zpsylomp8nt.jpg

 photo 35_zpsvmijunzg.jpg

In the midst of all the battles, Travis Cook pulled down the top rope and caused Ron Powers to tumble out of the ring. He seemed to be eliminated at that point, but Cowboy Bob Orton would allow him to re-enter the fray. The match came down to Hargas, Khan, Cruz, and Powers…Cruz eliminated Khan only to be pulled to the floor himself. Hargas charged at Powers, but Ron pulled down the top rope and Hargas fell out of the ring…leaving the former Brody protege as the winner of the battle royal!

After Barbara Goodish presented Powers with the trophy, Herb Simmons congratulated him on his win…but he had a bit of news regarding the June show. Travis Cook had been badgering him to settle the Red River Jack controversy and Herb finally had a solution: On June 20th, Ron Powers would face two members of the Travis Cook Organization…and Powers’ tag team partner would be Red River Jack. The news seemed to catch Powers off guard, but he promised that he and R.R.J. would come out on top.

 photo 37_zpseuobd8e6.jpg

On a night set up to celebrate Wrestling At The Chase and Bruiser Brody, the action in the ring told its own story and set the stage for a tumultuous summer in Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling!

Blake Belakis vs Zakk Sawyer vs Joey Anderson triple threat set for Franchise Title at BAD WOLF RISING

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 14, 2015

 photo 11295680_871005766298873_2900054311466201408_n_zps5bnyl37v.jpg

June 20th at the Lawford Theater(225 W Main, Havana,IL) the main event is going to be one massively spectacular dose of triple awesomeness when Franchise champ Blake Edward Belakis takes on Zakk Sawyer and Joey “JoeDozer” Anderson in a completely off the hook triple threat main event for the PGP Franchise Title. Proving Ground Pro has always been the place you look to find tomorrows stars today because we recognize talent and grant opportunity. Our current champ, Blake Edward Belakis, is a beneficiary of that philosophy himself, coming to PGP a virtual unknown and capitalizing on every chance to prove himself. Belakis is quickly becoming as skilled out of the ring as he is on the mat, careful planning and radical personal changes have molded “The Bad Wolf” into the most dangerous champion PGP has ever had….. Stepping up to the plate are two men who’s skill, reputation and popularity have made us take notice, Zakk Sawyer(primarily known to PGP fans as half of Roscoe Eat Lisa w/ Mikey McFinnigan) and Joey “JoeDozer” Anderson(primarily know to PGP fans as part of Guns and Beer w/ Duke Cornell and Big Gator) will receive a “do or die, now or never” shot at the big prize!!! Sawyer is a mat wizard who demands the spotlight more and more, he keeps upping his game and expanding his arsenal on an express elevator ride to the upper level of the indy circuit. Joey Anderson is a guy with a less colorful, more blue collar approach to the wrestling biz. No frills here at all, JoeDozer can fight all night, kiss a girl, drink a 6 pack and fight a little longer, yeah just that bad ass tough and plenty hard to stop!!!….. Blake Belakis is a champion surrounded by more questions than answers at this point and since gaining the gold he’s gone into complete power play mode, dictating many of the terms under which he’ll compete. Add to that the mysterious partnering with the former Dirden whisperer, Nelson “Mr.”Nice, to preserve his title reign at our May show. “The Bad Wolf” owes the Proving Ground plenty of answers but so far lines of communication are cut off. ONE THING WE DO KNOW, Blake Belakis versus Zakk Sawyer versus Joey Anderson for the PGP Franchise Title is going will rock the Proving Ground to it’s foundation. This is truly a CAN’T MISS championship match fans need to see for themselves. You may want to dress in a fireproof suit for a match this hot, the Proving Ground is going to be FULLY ENGULFED!!!

BAD WOLF RISING could turn the Proving Ground upside down, this card may change the entire landscape of the promotion with these matches…The realness from Baltimore, Jael Rose debuts against Joey “The Jet” Avalon is a clash of attitudes with a big fight feel….”Dirdey” Jake Dirden looks for revenge against former friend Nelson “Mr.” Nice…. Tag Team champs Team IOU(Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful) defend against the massive and intimidating duo of “Omaha Chainsaw” Stephen King and Nate Redwing….No stop signs and no speed limits when Louis Lyndon launches into action against Kunai the Silent Warrior…PGP Cutting Edge champ Mario Andrew Crivello has the title on the line against indy favorite Remi Wilkins….Perfect Addiction members Randy Ray and “Zero Hype” Guy Smith battle East Coast powerhouses Paul Jordane and Michael Lanz….”Master of Swag” Perry Winkle tries to settle a personal grudge against “Tyrant of Technology” Ovirload……AND NOW Franchise title triple threat action with champion Blake Edward Belakis vs Zakk Sawyer vs Joey “JoeDozer” Anderson to cap off one hell of an action packed fight all night extravaganza!!! BAD WOLF RISING is an atomic blast for your entertainment dollar( not a mere bang for your buck) when you get all this amazing action for a measly $10($5 for kids PLUS we throw in a free bag of popcorn)!!! Doors open at 6:30pm and BAD WOLF RISING begins at 7pm. Central Illinois independent wrestling only has one place where ART and SCIENCE collide with ACTION and ADRENALINE……

ENTER THE PROVING GROUND!!!

Dusty Rhodes – By Way Outta Line Caricatures by Jaime Baker

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 12, 2015

 photo 11119762_10207370394725167_1537293956_n_zpskbskujns.jpg
I’ve been a wrestling fan since 1982 when I was 10 years old. The only thing I could watch on TV was WWF because we only had basic cable. Then I started buying Pro Wrestling Illustrated and discovered other wrestling and wrestlers from around the country and world. One of those wrestlers that stood out to me was Dusty Rhodes, “The American Dream”. He didn’t look like any wrestler in WWF at the time because of his heavier body type. That summer we went to my parent’s friends house where they had a satellite dish. I was able to see the NWA for the 1st time along with Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, and a whole new group of wrestlers that were of a different style than I was used to. I was instantly attracted to Dusty because of his real life promos and that summer was when he delivered his most famous promo of all, the hard times promo. He may not have been the best wrestler but he cemented my interest in wrestling for good. Thank you Dusty for everything that you have done for the wrestling business and for everyone you have influenced. Your memories will live on forever.
