The South Broadway Athletic Club hosts MMWA Wrestling for the first time in two months on Saturday, March 10.  That’s a big layoff for the SBAC, which has hosted cards every month since 1985, with the exception of only two or three months.

Both of the titles will be at stake.  The Big Texan defends the big belt for the first time, against cruiserweight J’Mal Swagg.  Also, cruiserweight champion Da’Marius Jones defends for the second time, against Johnny Park.

The event is dedicated to the memory of former MMWA-SICW Heavyweight champion Geno “The Exterminator” Harris, who died on January 20 at the age of 56.

WLW: Night of Champions III spectacular in Moscow Mills, March 10

WLW 3/10/18

World League Wrestling has really outdone itself this time.

The biggest event of the year for the beloved Lincoln County company is Saturday, March 10 at the Tri-County Sports Center in Moscow Mills, Mo.

Ace Hawkins defends the Missouri State championship against “KB Violence” Karim Brigante of Rome, Italy.  Brigante is a former Missouri champ, holding the defunct NWA Central-States version in early 2017.

Besides the legends set to appear, Scott Steiner will compete in a match.  Kyle Roberts has selected the former world heavyweight champion as his partner to vie for the WLW tag team title.

MMWA: Da’Marius Jones and Deacon Cash rematch for cruiser title, Jan. 13

Jones pins Cash

Deacon Cash held the MMWA Cruiserweight Championship for nine months in 2017.  He was so intertwined with the title, it became part of his identity.  That’s why “The Incomparable” one needs it back.

Cash gets his rematch against new champion “2.0” Da’Marius Jones on Saturday, January 13 at the South Broadway Athletic Club.

Last month, the rivals met in a brutal No Holds Barred match.  After Jones won the title, he attacked Cash with a steel chair at the behest of his friend A.J. Williams.  This was uncharacteristically heinous from the recent fan-favorite Jones.

The first card of each year at the historic SBAC is always standing-room-only, so get there early.
