Derek Stone and “The Deliverer” Moses are set to battle for Stone’s WLW Heavyweight Championship at the Race Wrestling Arena in Troy, Mo. on November 7. As they are the top two ranked wrestlers in the State, the winner will also be awarded the vacant Missouri Heavyweight Championship, Missouri Wrestling Revival’s endorsement of being the State’s best.
As before, MWR’s belt will be defended in every one-on-one match the eventual champion has in Missouri, no matter the promotion. MWR’s first Missouri champ in 13 months will be determined at World League Wrestling’s event on Saturday.
Read the title announcement and rules
The match sees Derek Stone make his second defense of the WLW Heavyweight Championship. Stone strives to begin his second year as champion strong by retaining “Harley’s belt.”
Is “The Deliverer” Moses on your radar? He should be. Moses was on a yearlong singles winning streak, before meeting Stone on October 3. Despite a near 100 lb. weight disadvantage, he put up a real fight against the champ last month.
Factoring all wrestlers, in all companies, and a pandemic, these two are the best in Missouri.
This rematch is for everything.

Hey there wrestling fans! The Saint Louis wrestling scene is starting up again, but not without some last minute cancellations.
Some of the upcoming dates on the calendar are from pre-pandemic times; they simply have not been canceled. I always check with the promoter to see if the event is still on as the date approaches.
The calendar is always updating. Keep an eye out.
Longtime pro wrestling and concert photographer Joe Henley has passed after a battle with cancer.
Known to the scene as “
Photo Joe,” Henley was a hobbyist at the wrestling events. With his ringside access, his captures were invaluable to the promotion of big cards on this web site and others.
Joe was a true unsung hero. Some promoters don’t make posters, or really
any good advertising material for their cards. Joe’s photos always pulled through in the clutch.
Besides his photography, Photo Joe will most be remembered for his infectiously positive attitude and his smile. He always remembered your name.
The funeral is Friday, July 31 at Eddie Randle & Sons Funeral Home on Natural Bridge Ave. Visitation at 5. Service at 7.
