3XW champ ready to kick Ash -By Mark Campos

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 27, 2010

It’s that time of year again folks as we get ready for family gatherings, turkeys roasting in the oven, a time of peace and serenity……..and of course 3XWrestling’s “Holiday Havoc 2”! What better way to celebrate the holidays then with a full course meal of pro wrestling action?

The 3XW Heavyweight title will be on the line as the current champ Rory Fox will take on the “Gentlemen’s Club” own Brian Ash. This feud has been going on for the past couple of months and with the “Club” and their manager, “Commissioner” Todd Countryman, always interfering in the matches Fox may have to devise a new strategy for dealing with the big man.

Rory Fox made an immediate impact the first moment he stepped into the 3XW ring and to no one’s surprise was the 2009 3XW Newcomer of the Year. Many fans already knew Fox from the MTV reality show many moons ago called True Life: I Want to be a Professional Wrestler. The Iowa native has traveled the country mastering his craft for over ten years and is now setting his sights on Brian Ash and the “Gentlemen’s Club”. Fox won the 3XWrestling Heavyweight title in May at the “5 Year Anniversary” event from “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in a sensational ladder match. Since then he has had to fend of the likes of Ryan Slade, Gage Octane and the rest of the “Gentlemen’s Club”. After having Ash and his cohorts continuously attack him from behind Fox is ready to end this once and for all!

Brian Ash is the very first 3XW Heavyweight champion and he carried the title for some time as he has wreaked havoc all over the wrestling world. Trained by the legends Harley Race and Dory Funk Jr., Ash has the tools, size and experience to take the strap from Rory Fox. But even with his natural abilities Brian Ash has once again chosen to take the easy ride to the top. Ash returned to the ring in March of this year after retiring in a “Loser Leaves 3XW” match from 2007 and seemed to be making amends for his past behavior. True colors were shown though as he returned to the ring and turned on his wrestling students Maddog McDowell and “The Unbreakable Zach Thompson. This is nothing new though as Ash along with Octane and Countryman were once known as the “Blue Chippers” before the creation of the dastardly “Gentlemen’s Club” and much like today cheated to win at all costs. Brian Ash wants his title back and Rory Fox will have to depend on speed, agility and maybe some outside interference to keep the big man down to retain his belt.

Other matches have been announced for “Holiday Havoc 2” including a rematch from last months show with the 3XW Pure Wrestling champion “The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong taking on “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. Last months match was incredible as these former tag team partners gave probably the best match so far in their 3XW careers. A stipulation has been put in place by the 3XW Board of Director as Kwong’s sneaky manager Chad Mylan will be handcuffed to Skylar Pierce during the match! Also a six man tag team match is in place as The Horndogs and Zach Thompson take on American Ground and Air with Ryan Slade. More matches will be announced soon!

In addition to all this pro wrestling excitement 3XW is putting on a “Holiday Havoc 2” preparty on December 1st at Cup O’Kryptonite, located at 4521 Fleur Drive, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be free beer, door prizes, pro wrestlers, comics and did I mention free beer!

Also don’t forget to bring toys down to the show as 3XW is collecting for Toys for Tots!

MWR Christmas wish list of matches for 2011.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 26, 2010

By Brian Kelley

2010 is near a close and the yearly awards are coming up quickly with some very tough decisions to be made from the awards committee over who will honored with the Wrestler, Tag Team, female, and promotion of the year.

So instead of worrying about who I am going to give my vote to I am going to flip the script.

I am going to make my Christmas wish of matches on this Black Friday  that I would like to see in 2011.

Instead of matches that have done before I am going to do my best to name 10 matches that to my knowledge have not happen before.

So without further ado I give you my Christmas wish matches in NO certain order.

1) Bailey Mannix with Lovely Leon

vs.
Jaysin Strife

- It is no secret that I have mad respect for both of these competitors. These two men going at it would be a true wrestling classic. One could say that Mannix has the power advantage but Strife could be just a little faster. Neither man is afraid to get their hands dirty and brawl with the best of them. A true wrestling classic in every aspect.

2) The Barrio Boys (Angel and Domino Rivera) With Lucy Mendez

vs.

Attitude Inc. (Spencer Powers and Guy Smith )

Attitude Inc. (Guy Smith and Michael Shard) – Can New Midwest Wrestling handle being EXTREME? Former ECW Original Angel and his partner Domino Rivera is two men that many promotions run and hide from signing them to the fed.

Attitude Inc appears to be all show but the Boyz would soon find out that Guy Smith and Michael Shard can go.

3) Dixieland Destroyer with The Magic Man

vs.

Shane Rich (Photo by Mike Van Hoogstraat)

Shane Rich – The beauty and the Beast is what I would call this AAPW clash. Rich has the good looks and conditioning but would it be enough to overcome the hillbilly power of the Destroyer.

4) Donovan Ruddick

Mephisto feels the power of Donovan Ruddick.

vs.

Abu Colossus

– OK I have been begging for this match for a long time now. Don’t believe me click here to read a former article of mine that sets this match up perfectly. With Ruddick on the verge to explode would Colossus put out the spark first.

5) The Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter)

The Hooligans

vs.

The Gentleman’s Club (Casanova and Devin Carter) with Todd Countryman.

The Gentleman’s Club (Casanova and Devin Carter)

– The Hooligans have been almost everywhere but they have not been to the 2008 MWR Promotion of the Year 3XWrestling. With the Gentleman’s club running hot shot over everyone would the Hooligans be able to sway the good fortunes over fan favorites? Or would the mastermind Todd Countryman make them his next victim.

6) Lucy Mendez

Lucy Mendez has come on strong in 2010.

vs.

Santana G

Santana has teamed with some top talent in 2010 but she has yet to win the WLW Womens title.

- Two of the most popular women in the Midwest today. Mendez has had all the eyes on her at Metro Pro Wrestling. What if the Midwest Sweetheart was to show up? No women I know wants competition and the real winners in this battle would be us the fans.

7) Jeremy Wyatt

Every young wrestlers nightmare Jeremy Wyatt (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

vs.

Evan Money

Evan Money-

To become the best that you can be you have to work your way to the top. Money the teenage heart throb has had a solid year in 2010. Wyatt is considered by many to be the best in the game today. You say Money has no chance to survive against “The Rebel”. In Money’s defense he has earned some tough wins but this would be a measuring stick for one of the Midwest hottest young stars. My advice Money, if you have a belt stay far away from “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt.

8) Dan Walsh

Dan Walsh

vs.

Rory Fox

Rory Fox

-MTV vs MTV – Rory Fox gained national fame as one of the featured personalities on MTV’s True Life while Dan the Danimal” Walsh starred in MTV’s Road Rules. Need I say more.

9) Steve Fender and Mark Sterling

vs.
BroMance Jordan McEntyre and Knight Wagner with Eryn

- Different styles for sure, Fender and Sterling are no nonsense hit you in the mouth tag team in the style of Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard while BroMance is….well they are BroMance a team with a lot of flash but can blind you with their double team abilities.

10) Trevor Murdoch

vs

Jonathan Magnus with Stephani King

Jonathan Magnus with Stephani King- No one likes a bully and that is what Magnus is at New Midwest Wrestling. A big man pushing his weight around to keep the NMW title around his waist. I don’t think that Murdoch would be so easy to push around. A match that would be talked about for ages in Springfield Illinois for years to come.

In my personal stocking match-

Crimefighter gets Eric Allens attention

Crimefighter’s chosen wrestler vs. The Pride of Peroia Eric Allen – A perfect match for NMW. It has been over a year ago that we took a look at the contriversal Eric Allen and his supposed win for the “Peorian Pride Championship”, ST louis Wrestling communities Crimefighter called foul quickly. Words and tempers flared between the two in the past but what if the red hot Eric Allen was to show his face in Springfield Illinois at the heart of Crimefighter’s coverage area?

A special attraction match for sure.

Other notable matches

The Cancun Kid vs. Kwong with Chad Mylan
Jason Jones vs. Ryan Phoenix
Preston Maxwell vs. Homicidal Steven Davis
Billy McNiel vs Zach Thompson
Curly vs #1 Brett Young
Jimmy Rockwell vs Brandon Espinosa
Pete Madden vs. Dave Vaughn
Matty Starr vs. Danny Cannon
Tony Cortez vs Brandon Aarons
Dan the Man vs Alexander Rudolph
Bobby Houston vs. Derek Stone
Christian Rose vs. Chris Havius
Bumrush Brothers vs The Beautiful Bodies
Eric Logan vs Tyler Cook
Ron Powers vs. Brian Ash
Donnie Peppercricket vs. Davey Vega
Kory Twist vs. Father Jack Mecidol
Sir Bradley Charles vs. The Big Texan

4 States, 14 Shows, 4,265 miles and 74 hours on the road in 3 months at MWR.

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 26, 2010

With a plethora of great shows  these  past few months,  it has been hard to keep up with all the exciting  news flash, photos and happenings around the Midwest.

MWR has been active with some of the top stars in the country while meeting many of you the great fans, some for the first time while others we know quite well.

We have spent almost every weekend on the road covering the top promotions in the Midwest.

Let’s take a look at some of the sights of the past few months with MWR, the Fans and Superstars around the Midwest.

August 7- Granite City Illinois- High Voltage Wrestling

HVW returned from their summer break to with top stars Kahagas taking on Trent Stone , the Midwest Sweet heart Santana G going up against her arch rival Amy Hennig and the Great Cheyenne with MsChif watching.

Would it be just by chance that the MWR Wrestler of the Week was MTV’S Dan Walsh who would give away a MWR T-Shirt in August only to see him get the HVW Livewire title soon after? Hey Dan we are just playing, you earned it….with a handful of Trent Stones tights.

August 21 – Council Bluffs Iowa – Pro Wrestling Phoenix

The trips to Iowa seem to take so long to get their, which has been a reason for us to scale back from going to PWP and 3XW. One problem they are so GOOD!! MWR fans don’t worry we have no plans what so ever to stop covering these two exciting promotions.

Pro Wrestling Phoenix delivered on this evening with some exciting wrestling action. We were on hand when Axel Greece assists Ryan Slade and Zac James cheat Chris Havius and Donnie Peppercricket out of the PWP Tag Titles. The show also saw the war rage on between Abu Colossus and Preston Maxwell.

The MWR Wrestler of the Night was the PWP Champion Tony Cortez. Cortez was able to survive the onslaught on Jayden Draigo to retain the championship in a feud that has become quite personal.

In the near future look for a phot recap from their last show in October  from PWP/MWR Photographer Gary Giaffoglione

August 28- Lincoln Illinois – Pro Wrestling Epic

The Balloon festival in Lincoln Illionis is a BIG deal and with PWE providing a FREE show if you attend you can not miss it.

PWE delivered with the biggest match in years in the Midwest literally when the PWE title was on the line between the Mississippi Madman taking on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick led by MR Late Nite.

Ohhhs and AHHHS were heard as the two behemoths battle for supermecy and who is truly the top big man. Nothing was settled decisively, but the crowd went home to tell their friends about the Madman and Future. The match that shook the Midwest .

“The Kid” Evan Money was the MWR Wrestler of the Week as he went on to defeat Eric Allen with a frog splash.

September 4th – Kansas City Kansas- Metro Pro Wrestling

We were thrilled to support Metro Pro Wrestling for several reasons; first off the wrestling scene in the KC market has been dry for some time now. With Metro Pro Sports having TV, showcasing several of the top stars in the country today and oh yeah our former partner in crime Josh Ray is the current ring announcer for this upstart promotion. Metro Pro proved to be a great time with a great upside going into 2010.

September 11 – Waterloo Illinois – Independent Hardcore Wrestling

IHW has been on a roll in 2010 with some great matches in front of a packed crowd. On this night we were thrilled to debut the Tony Kozina MWR Trading Card. Kozina is one of the most well diverse and exciting wrestlers today. During the night Kozina wrestled one of the Midwest most impressive young men in the game Chris L.O.G.A.N

Let’s take a look at a Video recap of this great show from IHW

September 22- Olney Illinois – IWA Unlimited

Our first trip to Olney lived up to the hype that has been told to me. A weekly FREE Wednesday show how can you go wrong. A great small venue filled with some of the top young talent in the area.

Everyone that I talked to loved the stars of IWA U and looked forward to the hump day of the week. If you have the day off and live in STL I urge you to take the drive to see what you are missing.

September 25 – Hillsdale Missouri- MMWA-SICW

A great day for the community of Hillsdale as MMWA-SICW teamed up with the Hillsdale Police force to provide a free wrestling show. MMWA-SICW are always fan friendly and if a free outdoor show was not enough, the team work also offered free BBQ and back packs filled with treats from the police force given to them by the stars of MMWA-SICW.

Ace Hawkins is the MMWA-SICW Santa Clause in September while sporting the MWR T-shirt

The MWR Wrestler of the day was none other than Ace Hawkins. Ace fresh off of his appearance at Ring of Honor not only gave away a free MWR shirt but bicycles from the kids and some awesome ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame shirts before having a great match against Brandon Espinosa.

September 25- Wood River Illinois – MECW Double shot evening

One of the best kept secrets in the Midwest, is the fact that some of the best talent in Iowa makes the long trip to the STL to go to prove that they are among the best in the Midwest. Jimmy Rockwell, Devin Carter, Zach Thompson, Ryan Slade  and even self proclaimed  wrestling genius Chad Mylan has put an end to Gabriel Brimstones stranglehold  in the Independent title when his man Kwong won the belt in recent months.

Iowa is not the only area that is well represented as the upstate Illinois wrestlers BroMance (Knight Wagner and Jordan McEntrye)  with Erin currently holds onto the MECW Tag Championship and Matt Mayday, Mike Anthony and Chris Logan have all brought their own flavor in the company.

On this night the MWR Wrestler of the Night was the champ himself, Bailey Mannix. Mannix is still one of the most underrated wrestlers in the game today.

October 2- Kansas City Kansas – Metro Pro Wrestling

Metro Pro Wrestling heated up with the brand new Metro Pro Wrestling TV Champion Trevor Murdoch taking charge. With an appearance from wrestling great Harley Race the fans where able to see some of the great from the past mixed in with some of the best today.

What has the best Wrestler on Gods Green earth Harley Race along with Ethan Wright and Jeff Strong so mad, could it be because of something that former MWR Josh Ray is doing? See it on METRO SPORTS in Kansas City (Photo Credit Bill Smith )

If fans in Kansas City want the best bang for their buck they need to give Metro Pro Wrestling a chance. You won’t regret it.

October 9- Eldon Missouri – World League Wrestling

One of the biggest nights of the year brought several of the most influential men in the game today. Co-Owner of Pro Wrestling Noah was in attendance along with Harley Race and Cauliflower Alley Club’s Karl Lauer. The MWR Wrestler of the Night was Midwest knockout Lucy Mendez who gave away the very first MWR pink t-shirt.

October 10- Marceline Missouri – Modern Championship Wrestling

Just down the road from my house was a new promotion was a rare Sunday show that featured local favorite The Iceman. Brian Blade won the belt at the very first show and has been a thorn in promoter Dustin Watson’s side ever since.

October 16- Glen Carbon Illinois – NWA Dynamo/High Voltage Wrestling

We were on hand to present the High Voltage Wrestling tag champs the Hooligans the 2009 MWR Tag team of the Year plaques. To be honest we offered the exciting tag team Full Contact Dojo  (Jonathan Gresham and Ric King) the chance to be the MWR Wrestlers of the Week to throw out a t-shirt as a way of being nice.

In a shocking development they defeated The Hooligans to become the NEW HVW Tag Championship . No HVW Champion was safe as “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt defeated Kahagas and Dan Walsh won the HVW Livewire belt.

Look for a photo recap as well and interviews with all of the new HVW Champions here at MWR in the future.

October 23 – Springfield Illinois – New Midwest Wrestling

NMW invited us and invited us and I am glad that they did, we had debut once before and was very impressed and happy to have added them in our NMW Coverage area. The last show I photographed the most dangerous ( and fun matches) to be a photographer at in my carrer during the4 team NMW Tag Team scramble match and returned for the biggest Battle Royal, rumble style of the year for NMW. All for the enjoyment of you the fans.

The MWR Wrestler of the Week was up and comer Christian Rose. Look for more information about this exciting night of wrestling at MWR soon.

There you have MWR fans, the itinerary of where Dubray and I have been in just the past tthree months. We may not be able to keep up with the miles that the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling does but who can, that man is a machine.

I would like to thank you the fans, the wrestlers, and the promoters for making

Missouri Wrestling Revival – The Wrestling Press of the Midwest.

MWR fans please support your local professional wrestling and we hope to see you at a show.

MTV’s Road Rules Dan Walsh wins HVW Livewire Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on October 19, 2010

You have seen him thrill fans on MTV’S reality TV show Road Rules, this past Saturday Dan Walsh won the coveted High Voltage Wrestling Livewire Championship in a 4 man scramble match.

The match featured three of the most talented superstars in St Louis today when the POWERFUL Trent Stone, the FEARLESS OuTKaSt and the BREATHTAKING Billy McNeil gave an exciting match to get their hands on the title.

In a bit of an upset it was Dan Walsh who would have his hand raised at the end of the night but it would not be without controversy as Walsh had a handful of Stone’s tights to get the Victory.

Dan Walsh will have his hands full to hold onto the title, as the HVW Livewire curse or blessing to some have struck many. The first HVW Livewire champion Brandon Espinosa held onto the title for just under and hour till the “Tokyo Monster’ Kahagas  won the title later that night. Kahagas would use the belt as a stepping stone to rocket to the top of the chain by winning the HVW Heavyweight Championship.

Mike Sydal would win his first ever singles championship when he became the HVW Livewire Champion on the way to becoming the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illiustrated Rookie of the Year. Shortly after Mike was being courted by Ring Of Honor when the exciting young Brandon Aarons defeated him in the spring earlier this year.

Aarons due to personal reason was unable to defend the belt in August and this show so the curse that struck Aarron’s former tag team partner Espinosa bite him.

Now we have the “Dananimal” Dan Walsh as the HVW Livewire Champion.

How long will he last is anyone’s guess. Till then lets hear from the new Champ Dan Walsh.

Look for NWA Dynamo –High Voltage Wrestling information in the near future including words from

• New HVW Champion Jeremy Wyatt.
• New HVW Tag Champions Full Contact Dojo (Jonathan Gresham & Ric King)
• Former HVW Tag Team Champs and 2009 MWR Tag Team of the Year the Hooligans (Devin and Mason Cutter.
