“King of Cable” Bracket Released

By Sean Orleans

This Saturday marks the third annual King of Cable Tournament, the first to be held at the historic South Broadway Athletic Club in Soulard.

Eight men will compete in one-on-one matches under single elimination rules to determine the fittest, best wrestler in the St. Louis area.  The winner will receive a guaranteed title shot against the MMWA Champion at any time of the challenger’s choosing.  The previous two winners of the tournament–Brandon Espinosa and Dave Osborne–went on to win the title when “cashing in” their opportunity, so the stakes are incredibly high.

Let’s look at the bracket, shall we?

No seeds here; every man’s name went into a hat and was drawn at random.  Any of these men would make a fine King of Cable.  The Television Champion A.J. Williams will meet Battle Royal Champion Lynn Mephisto in the opening round, Jr. Heavyweight Champion Andrew Wilder faces Ace Hawkins, Da’Marius Jones squares off against the 2012 King of Cable ‘Big’ Dave Osborne, and two longtime rivals butt heads yet again as Brian James battles Jimmy D.

Also on the card: MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa will defend his title against Gary Jackson and the Lumberjacks will be in tag team action.

Battle Royal this Saturday Night!

The ‘Best in the Midwest’ are at it again this Saturday night at the South Broadway Athletic Club.

Battle Royal Champion Raphael King puts the title on the line in an over the-top-rope free-for-all!  After Big Dave Osborne’s interference cost Raphael King a shot at the MMWA Heavyweight Title last month, the two formed an uneasy alliance later that night in a losing effort against Brandon Espinosa and Ace Hawkins.  Following the match, King and Osborne brawled outside the ring, much to the fan’s delight!  You better believe those two still have a major beef…

The devilish Lynn Mephisto is still looking to take down ‘Gorgeous’ Gary Jackson any way he can.  Mr. Jackson has kept his wits about him and avoided Mephisto’s shenanigans thus far.  Sooner or later, these two WILL come to blows in a singles match…

Who will step up to challenge MMWA Champion Brandon Espinosa?  A few guys have called Tony Casta and Tim Miller to lobby for a shot at the belt.  Will the decision makers be swayed by a few honeyed words?  And if so, by whom?

Also in action: Moondog Rover, Phil E. Blunt, the high-flyer Ace Hawkins, and the menacing Jackson Whitechapel!  And Saturday marks the MMWA debut of Da’Marius Jones!  Folks, you’re going to want to get in on the ground floor with this guy before the stock goes public.

Doors open at 7 P.M., so get here early to make sure you grab a seat as close to the action as you can handle!

As always: Card is subject to change.
