3XW to showcase historic 60 minute NO DQ Iron man match January 7th,2011

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 27, 2010

By Brian Kelley

On January 7th, 2011 in Des Moines Iowa at 3XW two of the greatest wrestlers today Mark Sterling and Jeremy Wyatt will go to war in a historic 60 Minute  NO DQ Iron Man match. Both of these individuals have been Champions around the Midwest and are former MWR Wrestlers of the year.

In a world where respect is earned and not given, Wyatt and Sterling are the measuring sticks for those in the game today. From Kansas to Illinois to Missouri and all the way to Des Moines Iowa they are main event athletes that the fans want to know if they are on the card.

The time has come for Wyatt to finally put his money where his mouth is…. He’s been talking crap for years that he’s the best… Well I have news for him, there is one guy that is a bit better: ME. Wyatt doesn’t train in the gym 4 times a day like I do. He doesn’t dominate Crossfit competitions. “The Fittest Wrestler on Earth” isn’t just a gimmick for me, it’s the honest to God truth. Wyatt hasn’t spent the better part of 8 years training at Harley Race’s school like me. Wyatt didn’t train the 2009 Rookie of the Year Mike Sydal, I did… Nobody in this area works their fingers to the bone as much as I do. Nobody even comes close and that’s a shoot. As good as Wyatt is and everything he’s accomplished, he’s about to get hit with a dose of reality January 7th in 3xw. I have 60 minutes to prove to all the “experts” and “insiders” that I am not only the best on the Midwest, but on the fast track to being one of the best in the world!”- Mark Sterling

Mark Sterling is a man who is pure muscle with seemingly limitless intensity, who lives and breaths wrestling. A great build with a desire to become the best, Sterling has been under the watchful eye of Harley Race at World League Wrestling and recently took part in Ohio Valley Wrestling’s training camp that featured great wrestling minds such as Jim Cornette, Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore, Danny Davis and Rip Rogers.

Sterling’s path would take him to both singles and tag team glory in the past few years. At 3xw he has been a former 3XW Pure Champion and a former tag team Champion with former allies the Gentleman’s Club. Winning and being the best is everything for Sterling and his claim to the best in the Midwest was only strengthen when he defeated Michael Strider for the NWA Central States Championship last year.

Mark Sterling is bigger than me, stronger than me, has a better build than me, can do more sit ups and push ups than me, goes to the gym 27 times a day, can eat more tacos than me, has had better training than me… Hell, I basically paid a guy a grand and ending up training myself and tryin to figure it out as I went along. Why wouldn’t Sterling think he’s better? But therein lies the difference, Sterling thinks he’s better… I know i’m better, the best. The simple truth is this, for every advantage he has, I have one that trumps them all, I’m tougher… Mentally and physically. I punch harder, I kick harder and there’s no one who can absorb punishment like me, and that’s with having a body that’s falling apart. I have a severe sciatic nerve problem in my lower back, ligament damage in my left wrist, calcium deposits in my right elbow, dizzy spells from a concussion over a year ago but yet when it’s a “big match” no one, and I mean absolutely no one puts on a show like I do. January 7th, its gonna be time to put on a show” -”The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt

Wyatt’s nickname is the Rebel, a man who has done what he wanted to do in the ring with no remorse or regret. He could be the most hated man in all the Midwest. Yet the Rebel has shown a love for great competition and winning titles. Winning titles all around the Midwest is the reason why he earned another nickname The Belt Collector.

Wyatt would add the coveted 3XW Championship on August 21, 2009 against the then fan favorite Devin Carter. He would terrorize and dominate the promotion for close to a year till July 9,2010 when the talented Rory Fox would upset Wyatt to become one of the very few to make claim as a man to have a victory against the Rebel.

In the past these two men have teamed up but the question always remained, just who is the best in the Midwest?

Who has the advantage in this epic battle  where the object is to get the most pinfalls and submissions in that 60 minute time limit?

Lets break it down.

Power and size - Sterling clearly has the edge. Standing 6’2 and 221 barrel-chested like a Greek God, he has broken the will of half the wrestlers in the Midwest before the first bell rang. Wyatt gives up 2 inches and 20 pounds to Sterling, but no one uses execution on offense like the Rebel to withstand a bigger wrestler onslaught.

Can Sterling impose his strength in the match early on to get the edge he needs ?

Power and Size Advantage Mark Sterling- Is there any wrestler more obsessed with conditioning. In boxing the smaller guys are often said to best pound for pound fighter in the game. How scary is it that Sterling standing  6’2 221 could very well fit that bill in the Midwest. The man is a machine. Wyatt will have his hands full trying to slow down Sterling.

Stamina speed and air attack,-Wyatt has excelled beating men much bigger than he is, while he does pull out all stops with punching, kicking and scratching, I am here to say that it is just all smokes and mirrors to keep his opponent to realize just how versatile Wyatt is and the speed he possess. Sterling may be impressive with his stone cut body, but it’ his training regimen of CROSSFIT that allows him to have a style that can allow him to go all out for 60 minutes without a problem. Wyatt has shown a willingness to go to the air while Sterling prefers to ground and pound you.

Stamina, speed and air attack advantage- EVEN

Finishers-

Sterling is the owner of the Markshooter a variation of Stings Scorpion Deathlock or Bret Harts Sharpshooter. I would be rich if I got a dollar every time that I was at ringside taking photographs during his match that he locked this move in on his opponents in the feared Markshooter. The end result is always the same. Tap out or leave in pieces, either way I have a who’s who in photographs of some of the best in the sport on the wrong side of this painful move. To tell you how effective the Markshooter is, he has so much confidence in it, he uses it in tag team action and has still been able to pick up the win.

Wyatt will also have to be on the lookout for an explosive spear that Sterling has been adding to his arsenal of weapons. Will Sterling look to get a win off of Wyatt with the Markshooter, and once the bell rings and before Wyatt can get strength back in his legs will Sterling drill him with the spear to pick up a two fall lead?

Photobucket

Wyatt is a wizard inside the ring. The biggest and the fastest of wrestlers have fallen in the past few years. (Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat)

Wyatt brings to the battle the lightning spiral, a move that is viscous in appearance and even more so for the final result for the unlucky soul that gets hit with it. He has perfected the maneuver with such precision that it has been his trademark on route to title after title. Even more impressive is how quick he is able to deliver the move.

Wyatt is a master of leverage and it also shows with his other finisher the crossface. The move has been deadly for his opponents with Wyatt brutalizing them by pulling their head backwards while having their legs wrapped up with no place to go. Sterling is a big guy, but with Wyatt locking him in a position where his power is neaturalized, this is a move that Wyatt will be wanting to use to take him to victory.

Finishers Advantage – EVEN

Confidence and momentum –

What has set Wyatt a part from almost everyone in the Midwest is his ability to stay cool under pressure. In big matches with Tyler Black, Davey Richards and Al Snow, Wyatt wrestles like its another day at the park. We have seen Wyatt cause near riots in promotions, and you can see the frustration and defeat in his opponents eyes throughout the match.

Sterling is cocky, brash and rightfully so, he is as well trained as anyone in the game today. The problem is does he truly believe it? We have seen in many matches in the past where he lost his composure and tends to showboat. Sterling has been impressive in the past with pinfall victories over Chase Stevens, Colt Cabana and a huge win over the Monster Abyss in a brutal ladder match. On the flip side , Sterling has found defeat at the hands of Snow, Black and Jerry Lynn , all three men that the Rebel can boast he has had his hand raised.

With Wyatt already leading in the series, can Sterling overcome the doubts that the Wyatt has planted in his head?

The scary thing for the Rebel is that Sterling is and even BETTER wrestler than he was when the MWR Awards committee voted him as the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year. Sterling has been dominate in 2010 at WLW with Steve Fender as one half of the WLW Tag Champs, won the 2010  3XW King of Des Moines Championship, trained once again at the WLW/Noah camp and followed that up with a training camp at Ohio Valley Wrestling. Last but not least he was able to submidt arguably the greatest wrestler in the world today Davey Richards.

Confidence and momentum Advantage Jeremy Wyatt - With a history of wins in big matches, it is easier to name the matches that he has lost due to the fact that it is so rare. With Wyatt already in Sterling’s head is this match already the Rebel’s ?

Final verdict-

This could very well be the most important match in the future of the Midwest. Both men are highly touted as men who could very well be the best in the country that have not had a run with Ring of Honor, TNA or WWE.

Both know each other very well before going to war to see who truly is the best wrestler in the Midwest today. The longest 60 minutes in each of these two lives will be on the stage for the world to see.

Will Sterling look to overpower Wyatt early and push his weight around? Can Wyatt break Sterling mentally?

My advice for Wyatt is, if Sterling locks in the Markshooter, if you are unable to get out right away, tap quickly. Sterling has the move to perfection and the damage is done in a blink of an eye.

My Advice for Sterling, do not get overconfident and let the Rebel suck you in to thinking you are safe. You are never safe. Wyatt for all of his antics is always thinking and looking to deliver the big blow.

MWR Prediction- Jeremy Wyatt wins 3 to  Mark Sterling’s 2

The Miami Herald showcases Midwest star Santana G

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 22, 2010

Santana already with CCW gold, TNA role
BY JIM VARSALLONE
JVARSALLONE@MIAMIHERALD.COM

Being second or third generation can help get the foot in the door, but how far it goes is up to the individual.

Ted DiBiase, Huskey Harris, Michael McGillicutty, Natalya Neidhart, Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, DH Smith, Tamina, the Usos are some of today’s bright young stars who have the wrestling pedigree and drive to reach another level.

Newcomer Santana, also multi-generation, strives to reach it, too.

• Growing up in Belleview, Florida, near Ocala and north of Orlando, Santana Garrettis second generation.

Her family tree does not have the universal branchings like those mentioned above, but it does generate admiration and respect from those working in the business.
Her ties to the sport cross through her father, TNT Keny G, a noted indie wrestler, trainer and promoter.

TNT Keny G, who currently runs High Voltage Wrestling, based in St. Louis, has Florida connections and trained his daughter, Santana, a former high school cheerleader and flag football player who also danced.

She said: “Because of my dad, I got into wrestling when I was really young, watching it with him.”

Keny G had a wrestling school in Ocala.

“I used to watch, get in the ring, take some bumps,” she said. “Eventually, he started wrestling. He got in it late but started running his own promotion, High Voltage Wrestling in Central Florida, and he [later] moved to St. Louis and has been running it out there.”

Santana began training there.

MWR Exclusive: Some of the Midwest best train at Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville Kentucky

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 20, 2010

By Brian Kelley – Missouri Wrestling Revival Owner and Editor
All photos from Mike Van Hoogstraat

The world of wrestling is full of talented wrestlers that thrill fans each and every weekend around the country. With hopes and dreams to become household names, the chances are slim.

Today with reality TV and the sport being so open for anyone from models to actors to get in the ring , there are many people that go out to become a wrestler. Some of them have the dedication and talent to excel in the sport while others get a moment in the spotlight that others should well receive.

I am just one man but I feel very strongly that a wrestler that wants to make their dreams come true then they will have to stay active. The first order is to find proper training from the best like Harley Race’s Wrestling Academy in Eldon Missouri.

Then once you get “trained” a wrestler has to understand that WWE, TNA or ROH is not going to come find them, you have to make yourself known to them. Staying active, making sure you are at the gym, working on conditioning working shows, selling yourself at all times.

It could take years and there will is sure to be disappointments along the way. The truth of the matter is that your dream of making it “ big” may never happen.

If you are an aspiring wrestler, I highly recommend you stay positive and always learning. Finding ways to get your name out there in a positive light and always be in shape, always be ready to steal the show.

Recently my good friend and MWR photographer Mike Van Hoogstraat had the honored to be able cover Ohio Valleys’ tryout in Louisville Kentucky.

The camp was filled with influential and some of the great minds in the business including OVW’S Danny Davis, Rip Rogers, Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore and none other than Jim Cornette and former WWE wrestler Mike Mondo who has recently made appearances this month with Ring of Honor.

Some of the very best in the Midwest made their way from DES Moines , to Kansas City to ST Louis and in between took advantage of this two day camp.

In attendance were the reigning MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling. Sterling is currently a double champion holding the NWA Central States title as well as one half of the WLW Tag titles with “Superstar” Steve Fender.

Wrestling fans around the world know the name Evan Bourne who has electrified the WWE. His brother Mike Sydal has not just sat around waiting for a phone call just because he has a brother who is a star. No Sydal has wrestled around the country ,taking part in the annual WLW/NOAH camp while earning the 2009 PWI Rookie of the Year award. He has continued his momentum in 2010 be a part of the Chikara’s 2010 Young Lions Cup. Sydal would train at the ROH training facility

The hard work would pay off as fans around the world would be able to see him on ROH HDNET in matches with stars such as Tyler Black, Christopher Daniels and Kyle O’Reilly.

Sir Bradley Charles is a man that everyone at MWR is all a buzz about. A great look, mixed with a desire to be the best. SBC trained at the  Lance Storm Wrestling Training Academy. Since then SBC has already wrestled in Canada and Australia. In Kansas City he has been earning a Kings welcome home at Metro Pro Wrestling.

MWR Fans in the Midwest are familiar with the “Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. Rockwell has been a former 2 t-time 3XW Pure Champion as well as the current MECW Independent Champion.

Dave Vaughn is a name that many fans know in St Louis. The wrestling machine took the skills learned from taking part in the WLW/Noah camp in 2009 to parlay that into his first MMWA-SICW Championship. Vaughn was a dominate champion until being upset from “The Future” Donovan Ruddick with a little help from Brandon Espinosa and Travis Cook.

Zach Thompson has been a part of one of the most popular tag teams ever at 3XWrestling with Mike Sydal called the High Flyers. Thompson has also found success as a singles competitor at both 3XW being a Pure wrestling champion and a MECW Champion.

One of the most powerful men in the Midwest is “MEAN” Mason Beck. Beck stands a towering 6’5 and weighing 250 IBS. A powerful man with unlimited potential, he was last seen at PWE teaming up with “The Future” Donovan Ruddick with manager Mr. Late Nite to get a win against the PWE Champion The Mississippi Madman and former WWE’S Eugene.

The purpose of speaking on each of these men’s accomplishments is to highlight the fact that everyone of them are not just resting of them. They are doing all they can to be the best in the not only the Midwest but the world.

In this extended recap there are many students from around the country. At MWR, we do not each of the guys names that took part in the pictures but we hope they know that this post is a salute to them and their hard work.

In this feature you will see them work on the basics, moves and have some matches to show off their skills

Last but not least we would like to thank Mike Van Hoogstraat for sharing this with us and Ohio Valley Wrestling for the opportunity to show you how the professionals become the stars that we know them.

Golden Circle: Basketball Practice Macho Man Style

Posted by flairwhoooooo on September 17, 2010

Trademark Randy Savage Elbow drop (Photo WWE)

By Greg Anthony

Wrestling is my first love, I think we all know that. However for a period in time, basketball was just as much as a passion for me. Thinking back on it now I always liked basketball, I remember being 5-6 years old and going outside at my Grandma’s on my father’s side and playing for hours on end, not making a single shot. It really wasn’t until I was in 6th grade that I really started to fall in love with the game. Just like everything else in my life, wrestling always seem to creep in somehow.
 
“The Trendsetter” Jon Michael and I have known each other for years. We are talking since elementary school. I am a few years older than he but we were on the basketball team together in junior high and high school. Sometimes its hard to bullshit someone that knew you when you were a pimple faced little kid. You can’t over exaggerate stories from school because we have each other there to keep us honest.  The story I’m fixing to tell is 100% true and not at all exaggerated.
 
I approach things I love the same. So the same went for basketball, I was usually the first one there and the last one to leave. One late afternoon after school, Jon Michael and I were playing a game of one on one. I can’t remember who was winning, probably me. The bleachers were pushed back and the ball bounced and landed on top of them. So Jon went upstairs to climb over the rail to the top of the bleachers to retrieve it. As the future trendsetter was perched 15 feet at least above me, we made eye contact. We were both thinking the exact same thing and said “DO IT!”. Jon Michael soared through the air and delivered the best Macho Man double axe handle in the history of Dyer County High School. I took a full fledge bump on the hardwood as Jon crashed behind me. It was awesome until our assistant basketball coach, Coach Starks came up to us and said “What the fuck are you guys doing?” To which without hesitation Jon Michael replied “Macho Man Double Axe Handle“. I couldn’t keep a straight face and Coach just walked away in disgust.
 
In my opinion, if you don’t have a story like that, you should reconsider being a wrestler. Because you have to love it, live it and be fanatical about it. Kevin Nash in a promo on TNA just said after “X” amount of surgeries I’m in the this business because I love it. That’s a valid point, the guys who don’t love it, get what they can out of it and leave. Like The Ultimate Warrior. So remember great art comes from a true love and passion for what you are doing. There are plenty of people who can draw but only one Michelangelo. There are plenty of wrestlers but only one Ric Flair, I promise.

See the Golden Boy Greg Anthony wrestle this Saturday at All American Pro Wrestling.

All American Pro Wrestling comes to Carterville, IL. at the Carterville High School on Saturday, September 18th. Bell Time is 7pm.

Heath Hatton challenges “Serial Thriller” Shane Rich for the AAPW Heavyweight Title.

Ax Allwardt & “Homicidal” Steven Davis defend the AAPW tag team titles against “Trendsetter” Jon Michael & Stan Lee

Edmund “Livewire” McGuire V. “The Golden Boy” Greg Anthony

“Bad Boy” Chris Thomas V. “Thee” Brandon Espinosa

The Money Makin’ Jam Boys will be in action plus many more!

One of the best kept secrets in the Midwest is “Superstar” Steve Fender. Fender is currently one half of the arguably one of the best tag teams in the game today with Mark Sterling. Fender and Sterling are currently the WLW Tag Team Champions.

Fender has wrestled around the world including World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Pro Wrestling Noah.

Fun fact: Fender became the first American to train at the Pro Wrestling Noah Dojo and has the drive and talent to take on stars Takao Omori , Samoa Joe and Trevor Murdoch.

Fierce and methodical Fender wears down the toughest of opponents until they begin to doubt themselves, then its all over.

When MWR’s Josh Ray returned from Iraq, Fender and Steve Anthony was chosen as a Welcome home match at High Voltage Wrestling. The match was so good that we added it in the first MWR Best of the Midwest DVD.

We are proud to announce that the MWR Trading Card #17 is none other than a true Superstar in Steve Fender.

Rebel Devil Events/ Ring of Honor after party 7-23-10

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 28, 2010

Missouri Wrestling Revival was on hand to check out Ring of Honor this past weekend in Collinsville Illinois.

Some of the top talent in the sport today thrilled the fans with fact paced and breath taking matches.

The Midwest was strongly represented as the 2009 MWR Wrestler of the Year Mark Sterling, Mike Sydal, Ace Hawkins, Brandon Espinosa  and Jordan McEntyre was in action along with Midwest ROH Superstars the ROH Champion Tyler Black, Delirious, Daizee Haze and Davey Richards.

During the intermission Michael Gordon invited all the fans to join him and Rebel Devil Events to the ROH after party (the same one that you had seen advertised on this very site) that would be happing at the bar Hurricanes right down the road.

For a measly five dollars fans not only got to hang with their favorite stars but the party was hosted by Delirious with Comedy set by “Classic” Colt Cabana!

The first person we saw was Rebel Devil’s J. Guy who let us know that we were in for a great night. Boy was he not lying. MWR’S Dubray Tallman started the night off drinking shots with the former women’s World Champion Amazing Kong and that would just be one small example of memories that will last a lifetime for the fans at Hurricanes on that evening.

MWR would like to thank Michael Gordon, J.Guy, the Rebel Devil Events crew and Ring of Honor for having us be a part of this exciting evening. Big props to all the ROH wrestlers who had worked hard during the show and then take time to get to the know the fans that support them.

I hope you enjoy the photo recap of Rebel Devil Events/Ring of Honor’s after party.

One of the hardest wrestlers to get your picture with in the Midwest is Mark Sterling (if you don’t believe me ask chuck) Chuck Maddox jumped to get his picture taken with the MWR Wrestler of the Year. Sterling who is normally all business was in good sprits after debuting in Ring of Honor just hours before.

MWR Trading Card #14 “The Future” Donovan Ruddick

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 20, 2010

"The Future" Donovan Ruddick (Mike Van Hoogstraat)

BIG, POWERFUL and dominating are three words that describe Donovan Ruddick. No wrestler in the Midwest is more feared than the man called the 6”9 monster.

The former High Voltage Wrestling champion was honored in the 2009 Pro Wrestling Illustrated top 500 wrestlers with great matches with the 2008 MWR wrestler of the Year Jeremy Wyatt, Gary Jay, Rebelucha and Kahagas while being led at times by the Magic Man.

People with power have always gravitated to greatness and that is why when he parted ways with the Magic Man, managers looking to get to the top have quickly “leached” or signed on to lead him to the top of the sport. At MMWA-SICW “The Manager of Champions” Travis Cook just this past month had Ruddick within seconds of defeating Dave Vaughn for the coveted title.

Then shocking developments at Pro Wrestling Epicsaw Ruddick turn on his good friend the Mississippi Madman then aligned himself with up and coming manager Mr. Late Nite. That decision would prove wise for a quick moment when Mr. Late Nite signed an immediate title shot for Ruddick against the HWC Champion Jimmy Karryt. Karryt would show true heart but the odds and the true power of Ruddick would be too much for the young star on that night.

Fans will be looking forward to the clash between the Mississippi Madman and a rematch from the “Wrestling Machine” Dave Vaughn to end the year but you will not have to wait to get your hands on this MWR Card featuring the wrestler many feel that lives up to his name and is the Future of Pro Wrestling. Donovan Ruddick.
