Margaritas! Empanadas! Lucha libre! A new State Champion! It’s Cinco de Mayo on Cherokee Street in St. Louis, featuring Dynamo Pro Wrestling!

And Mike Outlaw was set to defend his State championship against Dynamo Pro rival “Lights Out” Adrian Surge at this outdoor festival on May 7, 2022.

When referee Jay King was accidentally knocked off his feet and dazed, Surge grabbed the blue-plated belt and cracked Outlaw over the head. King regained his faculties and counted the three.

The crowd was shocked! Even casual observers knew this was a big deal.

Outlaw immediately challenged Surge to a rematch later in the day. With a new burst of confidence, Surge accepted.

Two hours later, Outlaw finished off Surge after 15:06 with his signature diving elbow drop to regain the title, as the fully conscious referee HD Daniels made it official.

It’s unclear whether Surge holds the record for shortest single Missouri title reign ever. Shane Somers was stripped of his title the same night (by the late Missouri Office Inspector Karl Lauer) after winning it in 2003.

Surge has proven he is crafty enough to beat the champion. Surge is hungry, and he will probably continue to gun for the “General of the Bandana Brigade.”
