SICW Classic title tourney semifinalists battle, April 15

It started with 16 men, and now the semifinal round will bring the SICW title tournament to two this Saturday, April 15 at the East Carondelet Community Center.

While Kasa and Hargas meet for one entry into the final, the other finalist is seemingly determined: Marc Houston.

First-Ever St. Louis Champion to be crowned at Casa Loma, April 9

NWL STL 4/9/17

From the beginning, the National Wrasslin’ League set out to change professional wrestling in Saint Louis.  This Sunday at the Casa Loma Ballroom, the promotion crowns the first-ever St. Louis Champion.

By “first-ever,” they really mean that.  There has never been a champion to carry the title of our city before.

A bit of trivia: Larry Matysik once mentioned to Sam Muchnick that the St. Louis Wrestling Club missed an opportunity to name the classic Missouri crown as the “Saint Louis Championship.”  Now, such a title comes to fruition with the tournament’s conclusion.

However, the final tournament match is not determined.  The Maverick-Douglass semifinal was postponed from two weeks ago, due to Maverick suffering a concussion at the hands of Cornell Douglass.

That match will open the card, with the winner to meet finalist Todd Letterman in the main event.

The quest to crown a new MMWA champion continues this Saturday, April 8 at the South Broadway Athletic Club.  Three round robin bouts are set, with the tournament scheduled to conclude with a knockout stage in June.

As a part of the tournament, Ace Hawkins defends the Missouri Heavyweight title for the fourth time, as recognized by  Moondog Rover, the challenger, finds this treat to be his first crack at this State crown.

Hawkins comes off a tough April Fools’ Day, where his match with Da’Marius Jones went to a no contest after several wrestlers (including Moondog) attacked “The Ace who runs the place.”

NWL STL Events Move to Sundays, beginning with Final Four, March 26

NWL STL 3/26/17

By Marci Fritz,

NWL STL has moved its pro wrestling events from Thursday evenings to Sunday afternoons. The first Sunday card will be held on March 26th at 6 P.M. at the Casa Loma Ballroom.  The NWL STL tournament semifinal round will be decided that night.

“Having the events on Thursday evening was initially our best option,” said Major Baisden, League president. NWL STL has delivered five bi-weekly cards in St. Louis since opening earlier this year. “However, it has always been our goal to be an entertainment option for the families of St. Louis. Running on Sunday will make it easier on them to come out.

St. Louis has historically been a dominant pro wrestling town with loyal fans fondly recalling Wrestling at the Chase events and Saturday morning wrestling on TV. “I’m looking forward to our events moving to Sunday,” said Matt Jackson, General Manager of NWL STL. “The move will make it easier for fans to commit to a weekend evening spent watching wrestling, instead of competing with typical midweek activities.”
