MMWA Championship

When a man wins South Broadway’s heavyweight crown, he goes into the book with some of the toughest, roughest, and outrageous names in the last 30 years of Saint Louis wrestling history.

This title was formerly known as the MMWA-SICW Heavyweight Championship, the MO/IL Heavyweight Championship, and the MMWA Heavyweight Championship.

Fans, we need your help.  Please send in missing title reigns, locations, dates and/or notes if you have them.

  1. What ever Happened to Giant Assassin And Keith smith and Ed smith.
    I moved away to Sikeston Mo and I remember watching all these and Big daddy

    1. Hi Charlie. Keith Smith and Giant Assassin are retired but Keith can still be seen at some local events. Until recently, Keith was the SICW Commissioner. Ed Smith has passed away, but he was inducted into the St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2015. Big Daddy manages a stable of top wrestlers in SICW.
