A special message from James Beard

A very special message from the Desk of Director of Wrestling Operations, James Beard:

NWA Texas Stampede Wrestling is, in truth, a continuation of the legacy left by the promotions that gave wrestling fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex the most exciting and most competitive professional wrestling that could be found anywhere in the world. The list of names that are and have been closely associated with that legacy is long and distinguished. Many are very famous and well known by wrestling fans everywhere. But, there are some who are a part of the wrestling family that proudly made this area their home base that may not be as familiar to fans outside the Metroplex.  Regardless the degree of notoriety, if they were one of those we, who are closely associated with the area consider a part of that family of wrestlers, there is a bond that cannot be broken by time, distance or even death.

Ravishing Ray Evans was one of our brothers and a highly respected member of our family.  He may not have been as well known on the national stage as some of our other family members, but he was an important part of this select group of competitors and contributors to the Metroplex wrestling scene for many years.  

Aside from being well schooled in wrestling techniques, talented and outgoing in personality, Ray was universally respected and loved by all of us from this area who knew and worked with him.  He was a competitive and entertaining wrestler who gave everything he had to every match in which he was involved.  Win or lose, Ray was always fun to watch and a joy to work with.  Behind the scenes, he was a positive influence on everyone whose life he touched, whether briefly or if you had known him for many years, like most of us who have been around the Metroplex area for a long time.  He was one of those rare personalities that lit up the room and everyone loved.  You didn’t hear a negative word from or about Ray and you never saw him being difficult or moody.  He was always the same; Happy to see you and cooperative in every instance.  

Ray was a Pro in every sense of the word.  Inside the wrestling business, you are judged by the content or your work and the way you go about dealing with those you work with. To those inside the locker room, being the most famous or the most decorated with championship belts is secondary to the quality of your matches and the character you display.  Judging with those criteria, Ravishing Ray Evans was a true Champion to all of us who knew him and worked with him.  

NWA Texas Stampede Wrestling is honoring Ravishing Ray Evans with a special portrait and will be donating 100% of the proceeds raised from the purchase of this portrait directly to his family in order help with financial obligations left with his recent passing.  We are encouraging our fans to help with this effort by purchasing one of these memorial pictures and know that by doing so you are contributing to a worthy cause and the memory of one of the most beloved members of our wrestling fraternity and family.  

God Bless you all for helping out and supporting this effort.

Sincerely,
James Beard
Director of Wrestling Operations

Guevara to debut at "Knuckle Up" July 13th


NWA TXStampede is excited to announce the debut of one of the most physically gifted talents in Texas today. The self proclaimed "Best Ever" Sammy Guevara joins the BMF's of Smash Mouth Wrestling at "Knuckle Up" July 13th LIVE from the Balch Springs Rec Center (4372 Shepherd Ln. 75180) when he faces Mexico's own, Low Rider. "My first time in North Texas is going to be epic. I've already traveled from Mexico to the East Coast and everywhere in between. "TBE" is going to make an impact July 13th at "Knuckle Up" when I face Mexico's own Low Rider. I'm Texas' HOTTEST Free Agent, so what better company to debut my talents than in North Texas HOTTEST company, NWA TXStampede. One of the incentives of debuting for TXStampede, other than competing against the most Athletic roster in Texas, is the future announcement of their next Championship Tournament. I will do things at "Knuckle Up" that NO ONE will have seen before...or they wouldn't call me...The "Best Ever"...exclaimed the very confident, Sammy Guevara.

Danny Matthews discusses Smash Mouth Wrestling


Danny Matthews is no stranger to "up and coming" or "next big thing" tags. He dealt with those same labels when he was just breaking in from setting up chairs, to working cameras for UPN to ref , manager then eventually a solid and accomplished tag team specialist and now a top contender to the "Bull of the Woods" Championship, currently held by "Addictive & Expensive" Byron Wilcott. On July 13th, LIVE from the Balch Springs Rec Center (4372 Shepherd Ln. 75180) a "TXStampede Original" Matthews faces one of those "fastest rising stars" in the "All American Texan" Chris Cross. Here he mentions Cross, McKenzie, Action Jackson and what the future holds for NWA TXStampede and Danny Matthews.

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  We want to thank Danny Matthews for joining us today for a very rare interview.  

Danny Matthews:   Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  You've got a big match coming up at "Knuckle Up" July 13th in Balch Springs.  Any words for your opponent, Chris Cross

Danny Matthews:  I wouldn't call it a big match for me as much as it is for Chris.  I've wrestled some of the best talent in the state the past several years while he was learning his trade against the same 4 or 5 guys in the sticks of Waxahachie.  It's not being arrogant.  That's a fact.  He's been lucky to get in on the good side of the Powers that Be of TXStampede.  He had a good tryout a few shows back, then seemingly shocked the world with a quick roll up against ("Absolute") Ricky Starks.  I felt, however, he was a little rough around the edges during his tag match with Starks against me & Jax Dane at "Hard Times".

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  So you're saying Chris Cross doesn't deserve a spot on the TXStampede roster?

Danny Matthews:  That's not at all what I'm saying.  I think someday he's going to be good and like some people are saying, he's one of the fast rising Athletes in the State, but that doesn't mean he's ready for the BMF's of the ring just yet.  We'll see July 13th.  Granted he fits the role of what a TXStampede Athlete is.  He has gear, a good body and is technically sound in the ring.  That's the bare minimum of what it takes to get to the top of Smash Mouth Wrestling.  I've trained with Manny Fernandez, Lance Romance, Krusher Kong and a host of others.  That little dudes gonna have to bring his "A" game and have the match of his life if he thinks he's got a chance with me.

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  Understood.  So let's talk about the return of McKenzie to the Company.  It's no secret you guys are no strangers to each other.  What are your thoughts on seeing him again?  It's been awhile.  There are many in North Texas that are looking forward to his return to TXStampede.  Any chances of a Matthews/McKenzie tag team?

Danny Matthews:  Yeah, it's going to be different seeing him again.  He's a real good dude that's gone through some changes over the past year or so.  I highly doubt there will be any tagging.  It seems we're both concentrating on singles competition and rewards right now. It'll be a test from James Beard if he decides to pit us against each other.  I know it will be a fans treat to see us go toe to toe.  It will be a classic Smash Mouth style contest.  I'm looking forward to seeing him at "Knuckle Up" to see what kind of impact he's going to make this time around.

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  There are serious rumors that this will be Action Jackson's last year in the business.  Any thoughts on the "Texas Legend" finally retiring from active competition maybe accepting a position in the TXStampede front office?

Danny Matthews:  I watched Action when I was growing up from the Sportorium to the PCW Arena.  His battles against Lance Romance and the International Playaz Club were legendary.  He's one of the more respected individuals in the business.  There's a time we're all going to have to put the boots up in the closet and shut the door on the in ring career.  Action has set the standard for North Texas for many years.  He'll leave a void, I'm not sure there's anyone right now can fill.  James Beard and the TXStampede office are the best at training and developing the Athletes that really want to succeed.  I'm ready to step in the "Texas Legends" proverbial boots.  I know, if given a chance, I'll be able to do what Action hasn't been able to accomplish and that's beat Byron Wilcott for the NWA Texas Stampede Wrestling "Bull of the Woods" Championship.

TXStampedeWrestling.com:  Strong but moving words for the Texas Legend.  Anything you'd like to add for your fans?

Danny Matthews:  I want to thank you for the time to express my feelings and get some much needed frustrations off my chest.  You  can keep up with me on my facebook & twitter pages. (facebook.com/RealDMatthews & @RealDMatthews) I appreciate the support and look forward to see what the future holds in NWA TXStampede.  I've been here since day one and hope to rebound from some big losses and make the true Smash Mouth Wrestling fan proud of me when I, not only beat Chris Cross, but use that momentum towards Championship gold in the immediate future.  See you July 13th LIVE from the Balch Springs Recreation Center (4372 Shepherd Ln. 75180)
