Minnesota Wrestling Entertainment held it’s annual fundraising event for Holy Nativity Lutheran Church’s youth program. The card featured featured HNLC’s own Chris Jordan, who defended his newly won MIW title against Pete Huge. Also: Horace the Psychopath, Mikey Wipeout, Craven Knyte, Renny D, Black Stallion, 2012 Olympian Chas Betts, and more.
The IOC has made a bizarre decision to end Olympic wrestling, but there is plenty of action in Minnesota’s independent scene. Minnesota Independent Wrestling was in Clearwater on Feb 16, featuring 2012 Olympian Chas Betts and the MIW debut of Darin Corbin.
The first match was a battle of rookies featuring James Dawson and “Mr Entertainment” Ty Cooper. I’d like to see Dawson hit the gym. I also believe that Cooper’s character would be a better babyface, especially with kids who would relate to the cartoon character in the ring.
The next match featured another newcomer, PJ Thorne, taking on the cagey veteran Masked Jungle Fighter.
The Illustrious Rob Ivey won the MIW Championship from El Bano a week earlier, with the aid of Bridget DuPont and MIW Women’s Champion Mystik. Here, he defends the title in a rematch.
The legendary Horace the Psychopath was confronted by the local mountie Officer Rob Justice.
I’ll add more matches to this post as I get them edited. Horace the Psychopath, Officer Rob Justice, Chas Betts, Shimdog, and Darin Corbin all in action!
Jerry Lynn challenges Darin Corbin for the BCW title, The Entourage takes on Team BCW in a high stakes contest, and Renny D makes his BCW debut. Arik Cannon, Ryan Cruz, Horace the Psychopath, and others. Filmed Dec 15, 2012 at the Mirage.
I’ve added some graphics to this webcast, in effort to evolve my production skill. My play-by-play skill needs improvement, but that comes with time. Enjoy!

The Minnesota Warriors went to Duluth to take their brand of healing to a new part of the state. The dream is to start a new Warriors team to serve wounded, injured, or otherwise disabled military veterans in the Twin Ports. Warriors White played a team from Cloquet’s 1-94 CAV Crazy Troop, while Warriors Green took on the Twin Cities Ice Sharks of the AHA. This was Crazy Troop’s first competitive hockey game since returning from deployment earlier this year.

The Sting defeated the Brainerd Lumberjacks 27-0 Win it’s first NEFL Championship. MY feed stopped at halftime, so there are two files. Enjoy!
It’s been two weeks, but not much has truly changed. Pioneers and Rage are on a collision course in the NEFL playoffs, Spartans are getting better and could make the playoffs, and everyone beats the Rhinos and Titans, even each other. The biggest surprise comes from the Titans losing two straight to the ‘Jacks and Sting. The Spartans move up based on their ability to play St Paul strong, even though they haven’t played well enough to beat the P-Unit (yet). I’m also going to omit w-l records and league affiliations. Call it laziness I guess.
1. St Paul Pioneers – Keep rolling along. Try to stay interested until the playoffs, boys.
2. Lake Superior Rage – also keeps winning, but needs to play some defense if they want to challenge St Paul.
3. Minnesota Sting – Came out on top of an exciting game against the Titans. Have the inside track to home field advantage.
4. Minnesota Spartans – The only team to challenge the Pioneers this far, and might get another chance if they reach the playoffs.
5. Twin Cities Titans – Back to back losses have surprised us. They need to win big this week the regain some swagger.
6. Brainerd Lumberjacks – The ‘Jacks have reminded us to not sleep in them. This is a THREE horse race.
7. Granite City Renegades. Three? Don’t I mean FOUR? Not yet. Beat the Sting or Titans in coming weeks and I’ll revisit that.
8. Rochester Giants – winless, and have the Pred and Pioneers coming up. ouch.
9. Twin Cities Rhinos – Beat the Terror, bit that’s only worth #9.
10. Lakes Area Terror – At least they weren’t shut out. I pull for underdogs, and would love to see the Boos unset someone.
The Minnesota Sting secure sole position of first place in the MPFL by avenging an early season loss to the Twin City Titans. The Sting built an early lead, only to be shut out after halftime and hold off a last-minute drive by the Titans to escape with a 26-20 win. The game was exciting, but sloppier than I’d like to see from two first place teams.
