This site serves the promotions of Greater St. Louis:
Mid Missouri Wrestling Alliance (MMWA)
South Broadway Athletic Club, Saint Louis, Mo.
Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling (SICW)
East Carondelet Community Center, East Carondelet, Ill.
The South Broadway Athletic Club has hosted wrestling of some sort for a century, but for the professional ranks, it has been 50 years. In 1985, Tony Casta ousted Tim Keirns to become promoter at the SBAC. The MMWA was born.
Herb Simmons has been promoting wrestling since the early 70′s. Names like Lou Thesz and Bruiser Brody have appeared on his Southern Illinois cards. In the 80′s, Simmons started calling his promotion SICW.
The MMWA at South Broadway is St. Louis City’s only wrestling promotion! With SICW, they are the spiritual successor to the St. Louis Wrestling Club. The MMWA-SICW partnership produced decades of body slams and memories.
In October 2012, the South Broadway Athletic Club ended its relationship with Herb Simmons and Keith Smith. Thus, the MMWA and SICW are now completely separate.
