Gary Jackson is one of the most recognizable and respected wrestlers in St Louis for the past three decades. Bruiser Brody nicknamed him Night Train, he will be the first one to tell you that he is “Gorgeous”, but everyone agrees that the nickname “The Great One” is truly appropriate.

Since 1984 Jackson has been thrilling fans with top matches in St. Louis and around the country including WWE, NWA, WCW, and the now defunct USWA. You would think that this card is featuring a guy who has been out of the sport with all the accomplishments that he has had but there is no sign of him slowing down. Jackson overwhelms his opponents with true power and strength that is unbelievable for a man his age with no signs of slowing down. With the heart of the champion Jackson has been in main events for the MMWA Heavyweight title as well as the Classic Wrestling Championship at SICW.

Pick up this card that features a classic retro photo of Gary Jackson on the front and a great bio on the back that also features his 4 rules.

MWR Book Review: The Somebody Obsession- A Nobody’s Desperate Journey to Stardom by Matt Murphy

Missouri Wrestling Revival Book Review: The Somebody Obsession- A Nobody’s Desperate Journey to Stardom by Matt Murphy

People are often discussed with the notion that societies are black and white. In the world of wrestling it is magnified even more so: promoters are people looking to use their wrestlers, the wrestlers are loose cannons, and the fans, well, we are all missing a few pieces to the puzzle.

The truth of the situation is that each one of us can fit that description at one point during our life. Life is not easy and sometimes the desire to succeed can turn a great payout promoter to struggle to pay his wrestlers, cause a wrestler with all the tools to succeed to become bitter, or have a hard working fan get so upset during a match that he does or says something he/she regrets.

For many, wrestling is a way of life. Whether you work in the sport or you just love cheering on your favorite wrestler, we just can not get enough of the wild world of pro wrestling.

At Missouri Wrestling Revival.com, you have seen many of the stars of the Midwest go after titles, do promos and travel town to town in the hopes of getting noticed. Each man and woman has a tale to tell.

One man with such a story to tell is “All That” Matt Murphy. Murphy grew up in the Midwest, not with a silver spoon in his mouth but with hardships and a love of pro wrestling.

His story talks to the reader with an honest look at himself, his friends, and even his closest peers in wrestling.

His first claim to fame was being named “The first graduate student of former World Champion Harley Race’s Wrestling Academy” but what a trip it was to become that.

Murphy makes you feel like you were right there as he struggles to become a man as a teenager to coming back home as a boy that lived his dreams. Stories of who helped him and who took their advantages of himself and other wrestlers are high points throughout the book.

This is easily a must read for any wrestling fan or aspiring young boy that truly wants a taste of a guy who has had the opportunity to make it to Japan and the disappointment of not making it to the WWE.

Matt Murphy was able to see his friend and fellow WLW Alumni Trevor Murdock make it to the WWE with much success. Hear his thoughts on that, as well as his time working with Ian Rotten’s IWA Mid-South along with current WWE Superstar CM Punk. What kind of impression did former wrestlers Big Van Vader and Meng leave on him plus stories of his time with Pro Wrestling NOAH.

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt Murphy in the past and this book gives us a true look at the man who has been a winner, a underachiever with much self doubt, a self proclaimed asshole, and a man who by all means overachieved and did not appreciate it.

After my final assessment of Murphy with working with him and reading his books, I feel as if he is one of wrestling’s best kept secrets. Matt Murphy is a man who has a wealth of wrestling knowledge that just does not sugar coat his thoughts. If given the chance I have no doubt that Murphy is capable of improving the world of wrestling as we know it today.

His book delivers with a must read story for every fan that loves wrestling.

There is an international crisis in the Midwest in April as the “Tokyo Monster” Kahagas returns!!

Wrestlers around the Midwest are on red alert as we speak due to the announcement that the world wide superstar Kahagas will once again return on April 6th in Glen Carbon, Illinois for NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling then the very next night in Kansas City, Kansas with NWA Metro Pro Wrestling.

It has been since October 16th, 2010 that Kahagas has terrorized the area during a run as the High Voltage Wrestling Champion. A feud that saw him have classic battles with the best have to offer including Dingo, Flash Flanagan, Bloody Harker Dirge, and the KC Killers( Jeremy Wyatt and Mark Sterling).

During IWA-MidSouth’s last attempt at the Ted Petty tournament, the company decided to have a try-out for aspiring wrestlers. MWR was on hand as “Tokyo Monster” walked in the building, you could see the fear in the eyes of the wrestlers as they scurried around to find out if they had drawn the unlucky number to take on the Superstar.

When the dust settled of over twenty one matches that night , Kahagas entered the main event and stole the show with a win and along with a standing ovation from the fans with chants of “Please come back”. The IWA-Midsouth promoter was so impressed he invited “Tokyo Monster” to take part in round one of the IWA-Midsouth Ted Petty tournament against the future Ring of Honor World Champion Roderick Strong.

Though the tournament or match would never happen, the legend of Kahagas continued to grow.

Time has gone by but nothing has changed as Kahagas have been on tours of Carlos Colons World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico, been to the Dominican Republic and traveled up and down the east and west coast. Videos and photos of Kahagas have been pouring into the MWR office that proved that he was pounding his opponents into submission while having fans run for cover.

Feuds and matches with the very best have only made the man more dangerous. WWE,TNA and ROH stars have not been safe as he has went to battle with Jay Lethal, Sabu, Scotty 2 Hotty, Low Ki, Michael Tarver, Kevin Thorn, Tatanka, and the veteran Cuban Assassin.

In Texas, he went to the finals of the first ever GWT tournament that had legends vote on the matches. Wrestling greats that were on hand for the voting process were Harley Race, Killer Karl Kox, Iceman King Parson, Stan “The Lariat” Hansen, and Jake Roberts to name just a few.

When it was announced that the NWA Junior World title was vacated and a tournament was to be done to crown, Kahagas was among the first one wanting a shot at the title, promising to bring respect, recognition and honor to the belt once more.

The NWA wisely saw the talents in the Tokyo Monster and instead of the NWA Junior title; he was offered a golden opportunity at the NWA National Champion Chance Prophet.

Chance Prophet has been the NWA National Champion since February 19, 2011. The prestigious NWA National title has a rich history starting with the very first champion Jack Brisco  who defeated Terry Funk in the finals of a tournament on October 1980. Since then great men like Buzz Sawyer, Paul Orndorff, Wahoo McDaniel, Ted DiBiase and one of the original Four Horsemen Tully Blanchard have all held the title.

The Tokyo Monster wants Chance Prophet to try a little filet of sole! Duane Long Photographer—NWA Ring Warriors

The toughest challenge to date for the NWA National Champion Chance Prophet has been the Tokyo Monster who has been stalking him as of late meeting him twice at NWA Ring Warriors. The action has been so intense that in only their second meeting ever NWA Ring Warriors demanded that the match be contained with lumberjacks surrounding the ring. Still no one was safe as the match was called off due to a Double Disqualification, after referee Bruce Michaels was assaulted by a chair that left him bleeding.

The next NWA Ring Warriors card will be in Fort Lauderdale at the National Guard Armory on Thursday, March 29 at 7:30 p.m. Titled “Battle of the Belts,” the event will kick off South Florida’s WrestleMania weekend which includes shows and events from Ring of Honor, Dragon Gate and WrestleReunion.

Larry Brannon has set in motion to end the chaos once and for all as the NWA National Heavyweight Champ Chance Prophet will clash one more time with The Tokyo Monster Kahagas, except this time it will be in a Steel Cage and the only way to win is for one of the competitors to climb out of the cage.

Not only will there be two NWA officials at ringside, but former three-time NWA World Tag Team Champions, the New Heavenly Bodies (“Vivacious” Vito DeNucci and “Casanova” Chris Nelson) will serve as special enforcement referees for the match.

 

Then less than a week later one of the most traveled wrestlers in the world today, “The Tokyo Monster” Kahagas will return to the Midwest on April 6th and April 7th. If Kahagas should defeat Chance Prophet for the NWA National title, this will be among the first title defenses for the new champ.

Regardless, a man who has been in main events around the world returns from his year and half absence in the Midwest to once again.

Don’t miss the man who ran Godzilla out of Tokyo, Kahagas.
