Brain Thompson like a lot of other young men had humble beginnings hailing for the small town of about 7,500 people known as Dexter, MO. Growing up in the golden area of wrestling his main influences were WWF and Jim Crocket’s promotion. In the following interview we dig a little deeper in what exactly makes up the man now known to many as The IKON.
Rene: “Tell us more about your early influences. Who as the first person to really introduced you to wrestling?”
IKON: “My dad for sure. Funny thing is that as became a fan he stopped watching cause I kind of burnt him out on it so it was kind of a fair trade off’
Rene: “Speaking of your folks, what did they do for a living when you were a kid?”
IKON: “My dad was a self-employed layer and my mom was a factory worker. We were a middle class family. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth but I can honestly say I never wanted for anything.”
Rene: “Any early influences once you started watching wrestling?”
IKON: “Absolutely, I mean the Midnight Express, Rock n Roll Express, Road Warriors, The 4 Houseman and even Big Boss Man.”
Rene: “Now you just said the Rock and Roll Express, don’t you know work with Ricky Morton like on a weekly basis?”
IKON: “Yeah I do stuff with Ricky. We recently started a monthly podcast and of course as you know I’m best friends and roommates with “The Beautiful” Bobby Eaton of the Midnight Express. The show is fun though man, we have had some great guests on so far like Jeff Hardy and Jim Cornette and we have a couple other real great ones coming up as well. It’s called the School of Morton podcast.”
Rene: “We caught Ricky a little while back over at Metro Pro Wrestling as well as Bobby Eaton. What can you tell the readers about that experience?”
IKON: “Man that was a fun shot over in Kansas City. Ha-ha, everyone ended up being a little surprised because Bobby ended up being someone of an unadvertised guest when he dressed up like Santa Clause. The crowed liked that deal man and the guys in the back got a kick out of it as well. We actually ended up running that spot a couple of more times due to the success we had with it over in Kansas City.”
Rene: “OK you cool with a couple random questions?”
IKON: “Of course man.”
Rene: “OK growing up in the state of Missouri I got to ask, are you a Royals or Cardinals fan?”
IKON: “Cardinal Red all the way brother but I will say this; I’ve always enjoyed the Royals. Unless of course they are playing my cards then all bets are off. Also during the 90’s I was really into the Atlanta Braves when they were on TBS.”
Rene: “Next question, if we sat you down at a table and you had to choose from one of these 3 dishes which would you choose? BBQ, Mexican or insert your own choice”
IKON: “My I just got hungry all of a sudden. But um I will say I’m somewhat of connoisseur of foods. Not too much out there that I don’t like. But, I got to go with Mexican because I like to eat it 1-2 times per week. Now that I think about it it’s kind of funny because I took several Spanish classed in high school and college but it has faded a little bit. From time to time I do like bust it out on a lovely waitress that might be working at a Mexican restaurant just to impress them a little bit. Good thing for me I’ve gotten good baby face pops from it especially when I use the “muy inteligente” line which means you are “very intelligent.”
Rene: “Alright lets wrap up part up part one of this interview with a fun wrestling question. If you were an in ring competitor what would your name be and what would be your finisher?”
IKON: “Ok, The name is easy it would the IKON of course. For the finisher i….
Rene: “Dude don’t say Mexican surf board. Please don’t say Mexican surf board! Ha-ha!
IKON: “Ha-ha, nah man to be honest I would probably have to go with something old school like Tully Blanchard’s Sling Shot Suplex. If you haven’t seen it you have to look it up man! Basically it’s like getting a guy up for a vertical suplex but you bounce the guy off the top rope then he bounces back. It’s awesome.”

Brandon Espinosa makes his way into unfamiliar territory for a Missouri Heavyweight Championship match against Farmer Billy Hills in Cape Girardeau on August 27.
Cape Championship Wrestling’s card at A C Brase Arena presents Espinosa’s sixth defense of the gold and zinc strap. Farmer Hills, of Mud Lick, Ky., is coming off a tournament victory over Cape’s own Jason Vaughn.
For that reason and several others, Billy Hills fans are a rare find in Cape. Espy says he intends to teach Hills “a lesson in respect… and wrestling, of course.”
Brandon Barbwire lays his CCW Title on the line against the “Intelligent Monster” Jake Dirden. Dirden is a proven winner and will be a very tough opponent for the first CCW champion.
Ricochet, one of independent wrestling’s most well-known stars, takes on Arkansas’s Austin Lane in what is expected to be one of the speed demon’s last matches on the indy scene.

Complete recap in the future at MWR
“The Don Mega” Shorty Biggs d. Outtkast to win the D-1 Title; Outtkast got a near-fall after his corkscrew moonsault senton, but missed his second attempt at the move. Shorty capitalized with a Paydirt and fireman’s-carry Michinoku Driver for the win over his Bumrush Brother tag team partner (16:05).
Shorty was happy to give his tag team partner his return match for the title…it sounds like it’ll take place at the September 17th show.
Mike Outlaw d. “Dirdey” Jake Dirden to win the Heavyweight Title for the second time. Dirden nearly won by countout after throwing Outlaw over some ringside chairs, but he barely beat the ten-count. The referee was knocked down and Dirden delivered a chokeslam, but there was no one to count the pin attempt. Dirden brought in a chair, but Outlaw dropkicked it back into his face and delivered the High Noon(top-rope elbowdrop) for a close near-fall. An errant Dirden boot felled the referee again and Outlaw hit a middle-rope springboard European uppercut, but Dirden took him out with the chair and a second referee ran in to count…two. Dirden wedged the chair in the corner as the second referee helped the first official back to the dressing room area…but Outlaw reversed an Irish whip into the corner chair, then whacked Dirden twice with the chair. Outlaw followed up with the Mafia Kick and the second referee returned to count…two. Outlaw didn’t waste time and dropped Dirden with a second Mafia Kick, then hit a second High Noon to finally get the win for the title (21:08)!
Outlaw was ecstatic to regain the championship after a year-plus of Dirden dodging him…but he said he wouldn’t be the same kind of champion and offered Dirden a rematch whenever he wanted it. The two shook hands to end the show.
