Arch Rival Roller Derby & Dynamo Pro Wrestling team up for inaugural “Jams & Slams,” Feb. 1

(ST. LOUIS, MO) In an homage to 1970s Saturday night television content, a pair of St. Louis-based professional sports franchises are teaming up for a live, inaugural event that features both flat-track and hard mat action!

“JAMS & SLAMS” – an all-ages attraction featuring women’s roller derby and professional wrestling – will be presented on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Midwest Sport Hockey located inside of Queeny Park at 570 Weidman Road in Ballwin, Missouri.

WHAT: ”JAMS & SLAMS”: A St. Louis roller derby and pro wrestling event
WHEN: Saturday, February 1, 2020 – 6:30 pm
WHERE: Midwest Sport Hockey – Queeny Park (570 Weidman Rd. Ballwin, MO)

Leading off the night is a full-length game by Arch Rival Roller Derby, currently ranked fifth internationally by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), as the current defending League champions, the Smashinistas, tangle with five-time local kingpins, the Stunt Devils.

Then, in the second half of the event, a four match card from Dynamo Pro Wrestling (DPW) will be presented. The main event features DPW Women’s Champion “The Empress of Evil” Rahne Victoria defending her championship against #1 contender “The Barbie Killer” Hayley Shadows. A long-standing Dynamo Pro Wrestling rivalry continues at “Jams & Slams” as C.J. Shine takes on The Snitch. In addition, a special “Bragging Rights” non-title match will take place at “Jams & Slams” as Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight champion “Lights Out” Adrian Surge will face the Dynamo Pro Wrestling D-1 champion Camaro Jackson!

Historically, this is the first time in St. Louis that a roller derby event and a professional wrestling event have been jointly held at the same venue on the same night! Both the respective ARCH and DPW franchises each have over a decade of promotion in the local sports scene and the combination marks a breakthrough in sports production.

MMWA title to be decided between Wylde, Khayman, and Hawkins, Nov. 9

MMWA 11/9/19

Wrestling returns to the South Broadway Athletic Club on Saturday, November 9.

The MMWA Championship is vacant after last month’s controversial finish where Curtis Wylde cheated to beat Khayman. The result was nulled, and the title vacated.

This month, a return match was originally scheduled between Wylde and Khayman, but it seems Wylde has negotiated well. The returning Ace Hawkins will now wrestle Khayman for the title, with the winner taking on “Volatile” Wylde in the final match.

Wylde apparently doesn’t mind not being the next champion; he just wants to leave as champion.

MMWA Championship (vacant)
Khayman vs. Ace Hawkins

MMWA Championship
TBD vs. Curtis Wylde

Bell at 8. Tickets are $10.
