The Kentucky Buffet consist of Alex Castle and Matt Cage, both of whom were members of two other tag teams in the Midwest. Cage with Neil Diamond Cutter as one half of “Counter Culture”, while Castle teamed up with Christian Rose as “Project Mayhem”.

Counter Culture and Project Mayhem would have moderate success in the Midwest, but together they would become 3 time IWAU Tag Team Champions. Their rise included victories over top flight talent, classic matches.

In February they lost a classic 60 man Iron Man tag Team match to arch rival tag team the Top Guns (Danny Cannon and Christian Rose) as the Guns got the edge with four falls to the KYB’s three.

They would bounce later in the year by beating Zero Gravity (Brett Gakiya and CJ Esparza) for the vacant IWAU Tag team titles. During the year they would be able to capture victories over such teams as Jimmy Jacobs & Zach Gowen, Arik Cannon & Darin Corbin, Akira Tozawa & Christian Rose, Christian Rose & Joey O’Riley, KC Karrington & Adam Rich as well as New Midwest Wrestling legends The Feature Presentation (Blake Steel and Eric Ruffington).

The Kentucky Buffett debuted at Dragon Gate USA against the tag team “The Scene” Caleb Konley and Scott Reed.

The KYB also hosts a weekly webshow entitled “All You Can Eat with The Kentucky Buffet“. Special guests have including Johnny Gargano, Colt Cabana, Arik Cannon, Darin Corbin, Akira Tozawa, El Generico and many other top stars in the wrestling business.

Recently, a friendly rivalry, has turned very bitter, very quickly and it will be interesting to see where the future of the 2011 MWR Tag Team of the Year leads them in 2012.

For now we would like to congratulate the Kentucky Buffet for being named the 2011 MWR Tag Team of the year.
