Gather ’round kids and listen about a time when the South Broadway Athletic Club had its own champion.  It has been a while, hasn’t it?  November, to be exact.

That changes this Saturday, July 8 when the MMWA Championship will be awarded to the winner of the tournament final between Ace Hawkins and Moondog Rover.

Also on the card, the Missouri Wrestling Revival State championship is on the line as Brandon Espinosa defends his crown for the third time against MMWA Cruiserweight champion Deacon Cash.  Although unlikely, Cash’s title will also be on the line if Espinosa weighs in at the cruiserweight limit.
