Brian James defends his MMWA title against Deacon Cash in the main event of an important card at the South Broadway Athletic Club on Saturday, May 12.

Brian James, Gary Jackson, The Big Texan, and Moondog Rover: to former cruiserweight king Deacon Cash, these men all represent the “old guard” of South Broadway’s pro wrestling franchise.

Knocking the vets down a peg would be quite the accomplishment for the outspoken Bellefontaine, Mo. wrestler.

The match is “Da Bomb” Brian James’s first defense and Cash’s first opportunity.

Plus, Brandon Espinosa is set to take on Da’Marius Jones in the co-main event.  If Espinosa makes the 205 lb. weight limit, the bout will be for Jones’s cruiserweight title.

SICW: Ricky Cruz returns to the ring to avenge Keith Smith Jr., April 7

SICW 4/7/18

Ricky Cruz returns to the ring after a 16 month retirement on Saturday, April 7 at St. James Catholic School in Millstadt, Ill.

Two weeks ago, Cruz threw in the towel to resign Keith Smith Jr.’s (his brother-in-law) match against Chris Hargas.  The disrespect shown by Hargas and Travis Cook enraged Ricky, to the point he challenged “King Christopher” Hargas to a fight.

“It doesn’t even have to be a match; I just want you in the ring!”

The bout is made.  Cruz is not expected to make a full-time return to wrestling after the match.
