World League Wrestling’s camp show was featured for the very first time at Race Wrestling Academy in Troy, Missouri. This year the camp not only featured the usual suspects of the top promotions in the world including World Wrestling Entertainment, Pro Wrestling NOAH, but as well New Japan thus improving on a camp that is the premier week in the Midwest year in and year out.
Trainers throughout the week would include Harley Race, Dr. Tom Prichard, Beautiful Bobby Eaton, Taiji Ishimori, took part in teaching valuable lessons and advice to students from around the world. After a week of dedication and hard work from everyone involved, Saturday night would be for the fans with a night filled of WLW action.
Dreams happen at WLW in November, and this year was no different as the doors opened at 4 for those that were fortunate to take the opportunity to meet and greet with the legends as well as having their photo taken with Race, Funk, and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton while having the rare chance to hold onto Race’s NWA Worlds Championship belt that they were able to get printed off as an 8×10 so they could get them autograph from the wrestling greats.
The main event would feature the WLW Champion Ace Steel defending his title against the man he defeated for the belt on July 26th, in Troy, Missouri, Harley Race’s son LeLand Race. The challenger Race quickly took it to the champ, causing Steel to retreat. If Race had learned anything during the summer of 2014 from “Crazy” Ace Steel is that he a master of the mind games, so Race was calm and collected during the stalling and complaining from the champ.
Race forced the action and was able to have Steel reeling, but as the action spilled onto the outside, pandemonium was in full effect. As Steel attempted to chop Race, Race was able to move in time causing the champ to deliver a painful blow to himself onto the outside steel turnbuckle. With the action back in the ring, submissions were traded between two of the great wrestlers of today, yet it would be Leland Race who would seal the victory when he reversed a powerbomb into a jack knife pin .

Miss Natural Heather Patera Presented with the 2013 MWR FOY Plaque; Becomes Number One Contender to the WLW Ladies Championship
Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 1, 2014
“Miss Natural” Heather Patera is one of the top female wrestlers in the country today. In 2013, she claimed her second MWR Female of the Year plaque, thus making her a back to back female of the year.
On June 28th ,at the Race Wrestling Arena, MWR’s Fan Relations Dubray Tallman presented Patera with her plaque. Surprisingly, Patera was offended by MWR on the occasion.
Because we had chosen Troy, Missouri for the location of the presentation and not in her home state of Minnesota. She was not happy about this at all and made her feelings known, still she had her goals set in regaining the WLW Ladies Championship from Devyn Nicole. To accomplish that goal she had to defeat her arch rival and one of the most underrated female wrestlers in the country Stacey O’Brien.
Natural and O’Brien had toured the country against each other , wagging war and thrilling fans and this night would be no different. Throughout the match O’Brien was able to withstand a plethora of suplex’s, bodyslams and illegal chokes. When Natural tried to use the MWR Plaque, after the referee, Brandon Schmit was knocked down and miss, she quickly threw the plaque in O’Brien’s hands as Schmitt was coming to his senses. With Patera screaming in pain on her back and O’Brien holding the plaque, one of the Midwest’s finest refs had no other choice but to disqualify O’Brien and award Patera with the win.
Patera has the momentum as she looks to regain the WLW Ladies Championship from Devyn Nicole, but there is no doubt that we have not seen the last of Patera vs. O’Brien.
Could the next time before Patera’s title ?

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.

On Jan 18th World League Wrestling made the choice to move their training facilities from Eldon, Missouri to Troy, Missouri.
