Metro Pro Wrestling Packs the House to Start 2016

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 4, 2016

By Debbie Chmidling

January 30 Metro Pro Wrestling was a sold-out crowd. People were packed in to see an amazing show and promoter Chris Gough did not disappoint. The opening bout was Jayden Fenix vs. Jay Howard.

It was a fast-paced, action-packed match that left the crowd hungry for more. Howard took the victory with a submission move, much to the delight of the fans.

Next up was a segment with Commissioner Michael Strider. He came to the ring, his usual arrogant, cocky self, berating announcer Don Diablo for not holding the ring ropes even though Diablo was injured. Next up he discussed the Brass Ring Challenge featuring Jake Dirden, Kraig Keesaman and Devin Thomas, stating the winner would get a championship match at the time of their choosing. He was interrupted by Mark Sterling, reminding him that he was advertised for the match and wanting to know why he was taken out. Strider informed Sterling he was out because he “couldn’t get the job done” against Wyatt.

Sterling countered that he had two falls against Wyatt in one night, something no one else had ever done, he is the only one in Metro Pro who has competed in three iron man matches, and a list of stars brought in to eliminate Wyatt also failed. Strider conceded Sterling could be in the Brass Ring Challenge, however, he had to win the match or be fired.

Kiyoshi Shizuka with Geek Singh vs Redwing for the Central States Title.

 photo 6_zpspzlrkhgt.jpg

At the outset, it was all Redwing on offense until Singh interfered, allowing Shizuka to attack Redwing from behind with a wicked chop block to the left knee. He continued to work on the knee for several minutes with clubbing blows and dropping on the knee several times.

At one point, Redwing made it to the ropes, Shizuka distracted the referee and Singh choked Redwing with the bottom rope. Redwing spent a great deal of time on defense for this match, but once he regained his feet, it was all over for Shizuka. Using a crushing power slam, Redwing pinned him to retain the title.

The Commission, Evan Gelistico and Pierre Abernathy, vs The King Brothers, Jake and Ryan, for the number one contender spot for the tag team title. The Commission may have had a great weight disadvantage, but they had so much pent-up aggression, they rapidly overtook The King Brothers.

 photo 3_zpsvrzl6kex.jpg

The Commission attacked before the King Brothers could take the ring. They made use of whatever was available against the Kings, including an assortment of objects from Todd’s trusty grocery cart and a kendo stick from Santa Claus. After several minutes of pure bedlam, both teams returned to the ring and the bell was sounded.
 photo 22_zpsbju2w4he.jpg

Again, it was The Commission on offense immediately and This Kings were never quite able to mount any offense. With the ref attending to a downed Ryan King, Gelistico took the opportunity to bend the rules by knocking out Jake King with the Rule book for the three count, ensuring them a title shot. While The Commission was celebrating in the ring, Kobra Kai Dojo, consisting of Mat Fitchett and Davey Vega stole in behind and attacked them.

After leaving The Commission lying in the ring, the despicable Geek Singh made off with The Rules.

Next out was Metro Pro Champion Ace Steel. He had quite a few unkind words for the people of Kansas City who said there was no one to contest him, so he was issuing an open challenge. He was quickly answered by the KC Wolves, Graham Bell and Luke Langley.
 photo 30_zpsdohswdqu.jpg

Since it would be a one-on-one match, Lucy Mendez, The Assistant Commissioner, said his opponent would be decided by a coin toss. The coin toss went to Langley, the bell sounded and the match began with Bell and Mendez ringside. Langley and Steel were pretty evenly matched, quickly changing from offense to defense several times until they both spilled outside the ring and Langley tweaked his knee. Langley threw Steel back in the ring as soon as he regained his feet, but this was the opening Steel needed.
 photo 20_zpsit7g8ps6.jpg

 photo 21_zpsb3xayl3l.jpg

He began to work on the injured left knee. After several minutes Bell entered the match, causing the disqualification. Steel grabbed the microphone and said he could beat them both in a handicap match and Lucy made the match. Bell came in on very strong offense and it looked like the Wolves had it locked up until Langley was tagged in and while the ref’s back was turned Mendez pulled Langely’s bad leg from under him to allow Steel to get the pin.

Brass Ring Challenge with Kraig Keesaman vs Devin Thomas vs “Dirty” Jake Dirden vs Mark Sterling for a chance at the Metro Pro Wrestling Title. Initially, Sterling slid outside the ring while Thomas and Dirden double-teamed Keesaman. When Keesaman went down, Sterling rolled in and attacked Thomas.

 photo 14_zpsibcvgetg.jpg

 photo 13_zpszg0b1oly.jpg

 photo 12_zpsbkuwe4lq.jpg

 photo 29_zpspjfg41sa.jpg

Keesaman and Sterling formed an uneasy alliance against Dirden and Thomas, while the King Brothers stood guard outside the ring, mostly informing the fans to “Shut Up”. With Dirden and Keesaman both outside, Sterling rolled up Thomas and held his tights to win the Brass Ring Challenge.

Trevor Murdoch and Derek McQuinn hit the ring for a promotional announcement of the opening of the Kansas City Pro Wrestling Training Facility on February 8.

12622057_1116444098373733_9148977075223643954_o

It will be a place to train up and coming wrestlers as well as a place for current wrestler to work out and improve. They invited all the fans to spread the word. McQuinn is a personal trainer/professional wrestler and Murdoch is a former WWE talent who is now a wrestler on the independent scene.

After a 20-minute intermission, Mike Sydal vs Jon Webb was up.

 photo 28_zpslzay01n0.jpg

These two are both known for high-flying moves, acrobatics and quickness.

 photo 11_zps1ix0salv.jpg

They gave the crowd plenty of all three in a very good back and forth, fast-paced match that saw Sydal take the win with a roll up and a handful of tights.

New to the Metro Pro scene are the Riegel (pronounced Regal) Twins, Logan and Sterling to face their opponents Kobra Kai Dojo, with Geek Singh for the Metro Pro Tag Team Title.
 photo 10_zpseksb9jhz.jpg

This was once again a fast-paced, high flying match. Eventually, to the great delight of the fans, The Riegels appeared to have Kobra Kai Dojo on the run.

 photo 9_zpstdj1jmyu.jpg

Even when Geek Singh was distracting the attention of the referee, that didn’t slow the Riegels down. The man in the ring was hurt and the one on the apron rolled in for a little bit of that twin magic. At that point, Geek Singh pulled the ref out of the ring and distracted him while Fitchett hit one of the Riegels with the Rules and Vega low-kicked the other.

 photo 8_zpsns9z7wvx.jpg

 photo 7_zpspzmcbcye.jpg

This allowed Fitchett to get the pin and Kobra Kai Dojo retained the titles. When The Commission showed up for a measure of vengeance, Kobra Kai hotfooted it to the back.

Tracy Smothers with his sons hit the ring for an opening monologue and they talked about all the things that were wrong with Kansas City and how they couldn’t wait to get back to Tennessee. They bagged on The Chiefs, The Royals, The Kings, K-State, KU, the people of Kansas City.

 photo 6_zpsch6qakpa.jpg

Finally, Don Diablo was able to introduce the Math Magician. Smothers was again riled up because the crowd was chanting 1-2-3. He told the crowd not to chant 1-2-3, then he told them not to chant Tracy sucks which really got the crowd fired up. At one point, Math took a seat in the front row to watch the ranting. The opening bell sounded and after just a few moves, Smothers suggested a dance off.

 photo 4_zps7nkwaunf.jpg

 photo 55_zps7sq6qsdu.jpg

According to the crowd, neither opponent won the dance off and while Math Magician had his back to them, all three of the Smothers attacked him. Eventually, Math Magician was able to out-wrestle Smothers and when Smothers took him down for a pin, Math Magician reversed the roll up and got the win.

 photo 3_zpsxrckpiv1.jpg

Smothers took the mic again to tell the crowd how much he disliked them and he was glad to be leaving.

Next up was a battle of the Superheroes with Lucy Mendez as Batman and Miss Natural as Superman. Miss Natural showed us her ability to fly and was quite impressive.
 photo 2_zps2lmsafyg.jpg

 photo 1_zpsyqbcs4f0.jpg

Then she caught Mendez making fun of her and the match was on. Just when it looked like Superman would win, Batman grabbed Kryptonite from the ringside, disabling Superman and getting the pin.

Next up, for the Metro Pro Wrestling title was contender Beer City Bruiser Vs Champion Jeremy Wyatt.
 photo 27_zpssw1pwlvg.jpg

Of course, Strider had to come to the ring to “watch the match”. When Wyatt opened with several wrestling moves, Bruiser shouted “I want you to fight me, not wrestle.” No one could ever accuse Wyatt of not being accommodating. He unloaded with several shots to the head, threw Bruiser out of the ring, slammed his head onto the concession stand table and threw him into Todd’s cart of goodies. Then threw him back into the ring and asked if he had enough fighting. The match was filled with punches, chops and all out brawling. Another tussle sent them outside the ropes, which found Bruiser on the short end of the stick. While he was collecting his wits, Wyatt jerked him off the floor, pulled him to the bleachers and slammed his head onto the railing, raked his face across a zipper from the jacket of a fan and threw him back into the ring.

 photo 26_zpsygepioha.jpg

 photo 25_zpsegqlc3xw.jpg

Once back in the ring, it looked like Wyatt had a good hold on everything until Strider interfered once more. While Wyatt was down on the ropes, Bruiser distracted the referee while Strider choked Wyatt. As the match teetered back and forth and Strider continued to interfere, Wyatt found himself with the upper hand and was able to gain the pinfall. As he was celebrating his win, Sterling came to the ring to attack him, but Wyatt caught him coming into the ring and he rapidly exited out the other side where he stood with Strider.
 photo 24_zps8uctkuyw.jpg

Wyatt invited him to use his championship opportunity right then and there, but Strider held Sterling back. Eventually, Wyatt offered to leave the belt laying and walk away, win or lose, if Strider would agree to a match with him. Instead, Strider announced his opponent on the April 9th show.

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.

 photo 12483295_10207946097520961_785475865_o_zpsqba6vsfh.jpg

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!”
