From the office of New Breed Wrestling.

Our first update of the new year is upon us, and we’re starting to hear from fans asking about what might be in store this year for New Breed Wrestling. Let’s jump right in!

Our first event of the year will be our 1 year anniversary in Eldon on Saturday, March 26th. With the holiday on Sunday we’ve decided to kick things off a little earlier than normal, doors will open at 5:00 and the action will start at 6:00. As always our ticket outlet will be Rent-A-Center of Eldon, and tickets will go on sale February 2nd.

Two of the questions we’ve heard the most will be answered when The Math Magician and The Iceman will face off in a mask vs. dress match as promised by NBW Commissioner Wild Wade Chism. Also, the high flying Riegel Twins will be making their return to NBW to take on Guns and Beer.

We also have some new faces this time around as Paloma Starr will be facing Stacey O’Brien, and Mark Sterling will be coming to town to call out Trevor Murdoch. We hope to have a statement from Mr. Sterling soon.

Our second show of the year will be in Sedalia, more details are coming soon!

Metro Pro Wrestling Ricky Morton Meet and Greet By Debbie Chmidling

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 22, 2016

 photo 12458734_10207887962147613_1894534534_o_zpsxjz1fvue.jpg

Ricky Morton, famously one half of the Rock ‘N Roll Express (with Robert Gibson) was on hand to add stories and answer questions about his time in wrestling. He opened by stating, “I am not a Saturday Night Special, this business is what I love.” He is 59 years old, has seven kids, seven grandkids and still wrestles. He said he still doesn’t know he’s old until he sees a recent photo of himself. He wrestles and teaches wrestling because it is all he knows. He said he quit smoking about 2 years ago and gained 35 pounds. Morton has chosen his last match and it will be Ric Flair in February 2016 in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The last time he wrestled in Kansas City was 1989 at Memorial Hall and it snowed like hell. The dressing rooms weren’t heated and they had to trudge through deep snow to get to the building. It was Rock N Roll Express vs British Bulldogs. He said he never did get warm that night. He was surprised it wasn’t snowing when he got to Kansas City this time.

On the origin of Rock N Roll express, he was in South West Championship Wrestling with his partner Ken Lucan. He had wrestled in Memphis when Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Lawler were working together. Lawler and Jarrett had a falling out, so Lawler invited him back to Memphis and paired him with Robert Gibson. Lawler bought their wrestling gear at a flea market. The first ring gear bought by Gibson was from Frederick’s of Hollywood. (Now we know how spandex got into wrestling.) Rock N Roll Express were the first to come to the ring to music. Morton and Gibson were partners for 33 years.

Talking of gimmick matches and high-risk moves, Morton contends “It’s just part of the job.” When asked about the chloroform match, Morton stated the Bill Dundee and Bill Watts came up with the idea. He said territories, bookers and other wrestlers depended on each other and the same gimmicks and ideas were used from one territory to the next. 1994 saw one of the best angles in Memphis when Macho Man Randy Savage put him through a table. Morton “…laid there like I couldn’t move, but did not get hurt.” He is still kayfabe. He says he “tries to teach the magic, to make the fans believe.” When asked how many drinks to agree to a scaffold match, Morton said the first time was in Shreveport, Louisiana. He said “There were no drinks involved, we just did it because it was something different. We liked to be innovators.”

When Vince bought out all the territories and bought up all their videos, he started uploading them to the WWE network. No wrestlers in these matches were paid royalties for the matches Vince uploaded. They have uploaded videos of some of the bloodiest matches Morton ever participated in. There is no contract and there are no royalties. Doug Summers sued the WWE for royalties, lost the suit and now has to pay WWEs legal fees.

When Rock N Roll Express were members of the York Foundation at WCW they were scheduled to wrestle in Knoxville, Tennessee. There were no contracts and they were facing Doom. Gibson had been injured at home prior to the match. Morton told him to just get to the ring and stay on the apron. When Gibson tagged in, he fell to the ground and Time Warner paid for everything for a year.

Smokey Mountain Wrestling was owned by Ricky Rubin of Black Crows. It closed because Jim Cornette was leaving to go to WWE. Nash and Bischoff were at WCW and put the company $600 million in the red. Goldberg, Kevin Nash and Bret Hart still had three years on their contracts. They sat and collected the money without ever working.

Upon being asked if he envisioned ever going into the Hall of Fame, he spoke of Rock ‘N Roll Express being brought to WWE by Jim Cornette where they made a mark, especially with Midnight Express but they didn’t stay for long because people weren’t taking care of each other and were getting hurt. He doesn’t think he, or Rock ‘N Roll Express will ever go into the WWE Hall of Fame, but that doesn’t bother him. Morton said “The real hall of fame, The Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame is in Waterloo, Iowa and I was voted in in 2014.”

When asked about Michaels and Janetty stealing their gimmick, Morton said it was a compliment. Michaels patterned himself after Morton. During the time Gibson was injured, Morton and Flair were tearing it up around the country and they wanted to put the belt on Morton. Morton declined because he didn’t want Gibson left behind in the shuffle.

He doesn’t watch wrestling, but as soon as class starts, they catch him up pretty quick.
He was well acquainted for the Von Erichs. He said he knew them all and has a great deal of sadness for Kevin as his mother recently passed away. He said “…they were all into crazy stuff as kids and it just caught up with them.”

Morton told a story about Lawler and his artwork. They were doing a show in a Catholic School when they saw a nun coming toward them. She asked if they knew any artists and he started raving about the talents of Jerry Lawler. The nun took them to the bathroom where they saw artwork on the door. Mickey had Minnie bent over…

When he was in ECW he was wrestling Bam Bam Bigelow and there was a fan calling for spots. Morton turned to the guy and said, “The heel calls the match. Sit down and shut up!”Morton owns the School of Morton in Chuckey, Tennessee. He said, “I gave my life to this business and I’m still out here!”

Joe Blanchard to enter Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 20, 2016

WATERLOO, Iowa—One of professional wrestling’s most instrumental figures will be inducted into the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. Joe Blanchard will be inducted as a Distinguished Member at the 2016 George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame induction weekend on July 21-23.

Blachard made his professional wrestling debut in 1953 in Calgary for Stampede Wrestling. He teamed with Lord James Blears to hold the Hawaiian Tag Team title throughout 1958 and 1959. Blanchard held the NWA Texas championship during 1963 and 1964, as well as the World Class Texas title in 1966. In 1978, he founded Southwest Championship Wrestling in San Antonio, where he retired from active competition after a 25-year career. Joe Blanchard is the father of Tully Blanchard, who was a member of the Four Horsemen.

Blanchard died on March 22, 2012.

“Joe was a pioneer for modern professional wrestling,” said Bill Murdock, winner of the Lou Thesz Award in 2007 and a member of the Hall of Fame selection committee. “His tremendous wrestling and athletic skills are only eclipsed by his tremendous promotional skills. Joe put Texas wrestling on the map. He is also the patriarch of the one the greatest families in professional wrestling. It is an honor for us to induct him into the Hall of Fame.”

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will continue to release honorees into the 2016 George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame.

All-access passes to the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame induction weekend are available for $100. They can be pre-ordered by contacting the Dan Gable Museum at dgmstaff@nwhof.org or by calling (319) 233-0745.

A full schedule of events will be released on a later date.

Lou Thesz Award—TBA
Jim Melby Award—Dave Meltzer

Frank Gotch Award—TBA

Distinguished Member (living)—TBA
