To win the glory, one man must win three matches in one night. MO/IL Heavyweight Champion Gary Jackson, Classic Wrestling Champion Ricky Cruz, Battle Royal Champion Big Dave Osborne, TV Champion Dave Vaughn, Ken Kasa, Brian James, MO/IL Junior Heavyweight Champion Max Archer, and Jimmy D will vie for the Cup.
An eight-man, single-elimination tournament will determine the new King of St. Louis Cable, a title derived from the long-running Wild World of Wrestling program on Charter cable. The bracket seeding will not be announced until Saturday night.
Along with the Cable Cup trophy, the winner will receive a guaranteed heavyweight title shot at any MMWA event for a year.
Current champ Gary Jackson entered the field two months ago as a safeguard in case he lost his heavyweight championship. He has not lost it and as such, if he wins, Jackson will choose his next opponent. No titles are on the line in this tournament.
Ohio Valley Wrestling standout Brandon Espinosa won the tournament last year and captured the MO/IL Heavyweight Title three months later after redeeming his opportunity.
While the bell time is 7pm, the festivities start at 3pm. A live band will play throughout the day and there will be carnival games, barbecue, and beer. Hot damn!
This is an outdoor event. There will be plenty of chairs but we expect more than we can seat. Come early or bring a lawn chair.
Get ready for the biggest event of the year!
