The Magic Lives at Metro Pro Wrestling: Rebelucha …Jeremy Wyatt Defeats Derek Stone to Win the MPW Championship

By Brian “Flair” Kelley

I have been privileged to cover some of the top moments in the world of Indy Pro wrestling in the Midwest for the past eight years. During that time there have been great matches, title changes and events that have made myself a wrestling fan that much more.

Who can forget Michael Strider’s Ric Flair eques retirement, or Jeremy Wyatt and Mark Sterlings’ series of matches? One of the greatest run was Adam Pearce’s tour as the NWA World Champion that earned him his MWR Wrestler of the Year award. There was thee current Ring Of Honor’s Jerry Lynn’s visit to Dynamo Pro Wrestling and how can we forget the Submission Squad vs. The Bearded Men from Space Station 11 Street Fight? We were there to document the historic AAPW event that featured El Generico (WWE’S Sami Zayn) vs Pac (WWE’s Neville) . I was able to stay alive ringside around the unleashed Ron Powers during his Classic Wrestling title reign at SICW as well as frequently covering the biggest week of the year during Harley Race’s annual WLW/WWE/NOAH camp.

Yet, after having time to digest what I saw at Metro Pro Wrestling during the August Metro Proyale, I am convinced that I saw something that I may have not seen in the current product at this level during my time of covering the sport and that was a moment that could only be describe as the Brock Lesnar/Undertaker Wrestlemania aftermath.

As many fans know heading into that Wrestlemania the Undertaker was looking to add another victory in his win streak at the Superbowl of wrestling events. Even though Brock Lesnar has always been one of the truly gifted wrestlers to enter the ring, no one thought he would defeat the Undertaker, not Jim Ross, not Steve Austin and if you ask any fan if they tell you that they saw it coming they just are not being truthful to you. Todays fans are quite arguably the smartest wrestling fans in the history of the sport and the fact that Vince and the WWE was able to swerve them on a match proved that in the world of the Internet Wrestling Community and dirt sheets that there was still some magic in the world of pro wrestling.

Why will the Lesnar victory forever be remembered as much as any title change from the 1900’s to today? The fact that the WWE and Undertaker to his credit were able to get the fans invested in the streak. The Undertaker for years had wrestled mid-card Mania matches which a touch of main event status through the years that the streak became something that the fans themselves took ownership of. Thus when out of the blue the streak had been conquered at WRESTLEMANIA the emotions of losing felt as real to the fans as much as someone losing their wallet.

To get to the magic of the final moments of Metro Pro Wrestling’s main event match you would have to look at the roadmap left in the story at the beginning of 2015. The main event player for Metro Pro Wrestling is none other than the “Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt. Though Wyatt was once the most hated man in Metro Pro Wrestling, like many of the top biggest fan favorites of the sport including Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin and even the Rock, the man the fans love to hate, they truly are thrilled to cheer.

Amazingly it would take the Metro Pro Wrestling commissioner Michael Strider, a guy who was once the most respected man at Metro Pro to allow the fans to embrace Wyatt as one of the own.

Strider with an attitude and arrogance about himself, Strider screwed Wyatt out of title back in December by helping Derek win.

Then in January he announced the, announced I’d never be given another title shot of any kind, but to make matters worse the very next match that he lost would be his last at Metro Pro. Since that time we have seen a who’s who of wrestling talent around the world looking to earn that honor of retiring the Rebel including Christopher Daniels, Matt Striker, Matt Cage, and Ricky Cruz.

Wyatt overcame the odds each and every time that the Strider hoped to end his career, but in the air was a small, but loud section of fans that hoped to put the spotlight on themselves by challenging the pro Wyatt fan base by chanting “Worthless Wyatt”.

Those anti-Wyatt fans had nothing to cheer about early in the night as Striders hand-picked opponent Christian Rose brought the pain in the match, but would prove unable to earn the reputation as the man to end Wyatts career at MPW as the momentum headed to the 2015 Metro Proyale (Over-The-Top Rope Battle Royal) where the survivor of the match would win an immediate Metro Pro Title shot. Afterwards strider immediately put Wyatt in a handicapped match Vs the Kansas City Kings, which Wyatt won by DQ. Not satisfied with the outcome Strider, along with Sterling, the Kings, Rebelucha, and 2 other security guards beat him down so bad that the refs had to help him to the back.

After another stellar card from MPW that saw Ace Steel defeat ACH for the Central States title and Bolt Brady come up just short in his second chance to win the Metro Pro Wrestling title from Derek Stone it was time for the Metro Proyale.

One by one they came to the ring in the co-main event to earn that distinction. Favorites like the new Central States Champion Ace Steel look to win two titles in the same night while men like the Iceman hoped to live his dream to become the MPW Champion. One came in and they all gave a fight as they went over the top rope including Kraig Kessaman , ACH, Matt Cage, the King Brothers, Tyler Cook, the Commission, Davey Vega, Devin Thomas, Maddog Mcdowell and Bolt Brady as MPW Champion Derek Stone and Michael Strider both watched on at ringside with Striders henchmen in tow.

All along the anti-Wyatt fans taunted the crowd with “Where is Wyatt” and when Redwing the man who had won the last position in the Royal earlier in the match during the six man scramble by pinning Sydal, the chant Where is Wyatt along with a taunting smiles from the anti-Wyatt crowd only got louder.
As the match was about to come to a close Stone and Strider came to their feet to get a closer look as Red Wing Striders masked henchman Rebelucha to double team the powerful Redwing. All eyes was on the ring as my money was on Redwing to overcome the odds somehow, someway. When Mark Sterling eliminated Redwing, business picked up. Stone showed his true colors as out of the blue he eliminated Mark Sterling leaving Rebelucha as the 2015 2015 Metro Proyale Champion.

As a furious Sterling went after Stone, Strider was able to get his henchman to restrain him as he demanded that the title match began right away. Stone looking to end it quickly left himself open for a quick strike as Rebelucha nailed the eye of the hurricane finisher as the referee landed the final three count on the mat, time stopped and within moments the crowd erupted.

Rebelucha grabbed the MPW Belt and did a victory lap around the ring then headed to the middle of the Turner Rec center bleachers with his belt in hand. I never thought there would be a time in this era that the crowd would be shocked over who was underneath a mask, but when Rebelucha unmasked himself to show himself as Jeremy Wyatt I had chills up and down my spine as the crowd roared and mocked the anti- Wyatt fans as Strider demanded everyone to leave the building .. RIGHT AWAY
