Heath Hatton Spends a Day with Dalton

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 5, 2016

Throughout the years I have made so many friends in and out of the ring. Some of them have come and gone, while others I keep close contact with throughout the year. Each weekend I meet another person that loves wrestling and has a heart of gold for others, just like my old friends. One wrestler that I have known for many years now is Heath Hatton. The Southern Illinois fan favorite has always been a pleasure to work with as I took photos, promos and just have small talk during the events. Hatton in the past has been in many main events, won titles and even wrestled on a WWE PPV. At the end of the day he has always been the same person I first met, a wonderful smile, who loved wrestling, his family and went the extra mile for his fans.

I was heading to Metro Pro Wrestling this weekend when I read his Facebook post about a special day that he had meeting a young man named Dalton that was in the hospital and wanted to meet a wrestler. I asked Heath if I could share it with the MWR family, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

Brian Kelley – MWR Editor


From Wrestler Heath Hatton

I got asked if I would drive over to Evansville today and meet a life long wrestling fan who is in a fight for his life. Without hesitation I said yes. Today I met Dalton, a 10 year old who has adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) which is a terminal genetic condition that attacks the brain.

His dream was to meet a WWE superstar but it doesn’t seem like that is a possibility now. (WWE is sending him a package though!) He still wanted to meet a wrestler so I got asked to come. We sat and talked about my time at WWE, his favorite wrestlers, my favorite wrestlers, Stride wrestling, Star Wars, baseball and I got to break the news to him the Cubs won the World Series.. (he likes the cardinals)..it was an amazing visit.

I’m not a WWE super star or a wrestling legend. I’m not what you would consider a hero but today I met an actual star, today I got to meet a real life hero. My daughter is the same age as Dalton. This hit me so close to home and I’ve cried for the last 20 minutes trying figure out what to say. I’m not quite sure there are any right words To say but I still want to try to tell his story and I really want to say, Thank you to Dalton’, Dalton’s family and the company granted for making this happen. I am forever blessed To have met him and to have experienced this.

When I look back on my wrestling career, meeting kids like Dalton will be the only stuff I hope to remember.

The Night Train Captures The Gold

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 18, 2015

 photo 81_zps9u0fhphn.jpg

By Patrick Brandmeyer

There has rarely been a goal that Gary Jackson hasn’t achieved.

“The Night Train” has held championships all over the Midwest and has competed in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling. However, the SICW Classic Wrestling Championship had eluded him since the very creation of the title. Gary was one of the favorites in the tournament to crown the inaugural champion in January of 2011, but he was eliminated in a time-limit draw with Dave Vaughn. He never got a chance to challenge Danny Boy Hawkins for the gold as his title reign was short-lived…and he only got one shot at Ron Powers when he was champion, dropping the fall in a triple threat match that also involved Chris Hargas. Gary challenged Ricky Cruz for the title on a few different occasions. One of Ricky’s first defenses as champion was against Jackson, but that match was thrown out due to the interference of the Travis Cook Organization. It would be months before Gary would get another crack at the belt…at the end of a hard-fought battle, Cruz locked on his Cruzeta Azteca submission hold. Jackson never submitted or tapped out, but he passed out in the hold and the referee called for the bell. The devastating defeat had halted Jackson’s title hopes once again.     The veteran had no problem with working his way back up the ladder…and soon he was in title contention once again. This time the titleholder was “Ironman” Ken Kasa, managed by Travis Cook. Jackson appeared to be on the verge of finally capturing the title as he had Kasa in the Texas Cloverleaf, but Cook blatantly interfered to get his man disqualified and save the title. That led to the return of Big Daddy as he was handcuffed to Cook for the following month’s rematch…but Kasa was able to counter the Cloverleaf with a small package to escape with the title. Once more, Gary found himself on the outside looking in on the title picture. Issues with Flash Flanagan and Mohamad Ali Vaez sidetracked him from his championship aspirations as the belt went from Kasa to Heath Hatton to Flanagan. Jackson defeated Vaez in a hard-fought Texas Death Match and then settled his old issue with Kasa by making him tap to the Cloverleaf in a tag match…and that finally put him in position the challenge for the title once again. However, this time around it was all or nothing for “The Great One”…it would be his last shot at SICW gold. It was the first one-on-one encounter between Flanagan and Jackson after the two had traded pinfall victories in previous tag matches. Gary had the support of Big Daddy in his corner, but Flash had a whole bag of tricks up his sleeve to potentially retain his title(some less legal than others). Of course, one can’t forget Gary’s famous “rules”…he’s not above bending or outright breaking the rules to achieve victory. It was a battle of two veterans, but “Gorgeous Gary” still had the edge in overall experience. Flanagan had the advantage in size and agility…the two were about even in terms of technical expertise and sheer toughness. Flash was no pushover, obviously…the titleholder had experience in the WWF, TNA, and Puerto Rico on his resume. He also brought his trademark kendo stick to the ring, something that had helped him score his tainted championship victory over Heath Hatton in November. The two battle-hardened competitors matched each other move for move as the momentum swung back and forth…it could have easily gone either way.  photo 000_zps8pdykw45.jpg  photo 82_zps8wnwljkd.jpg For Flanagan, the championship was at stake; he enjoyed holding his title reign over the heads of SICW higher-ups who frowned on his tactics. For Jackson, any hope of acquiring the Classic Wrestling Championship was on the line…it was “now or never”.  photo 0000_zpszffeqp4d.jpg When Flanagan was unable to put Jackson away, he went for his kendo stick…perhaps to deliver a cheap shot behind the referee’s back or perhaps to blatantly get himself disqualified to save his title. However, Big Daddy was the difference-maker as he distracted the champion from whatever he had planned. That allowed Jackson to roll up Flanagan in a pinning combination…and three seconds later, he had finally reached the top of the SICW mountain! Pandemonium swept the East Carondelet Community Center…other wrestlers came out to celebrate with the new champion and Gary reminded us of The Rules: He comes out to win, he refuses to lose, he will cheat to win, and don’t forget The Rules. After four years of pursuing his goal, he had finally become the SICW Classic Wrestling Champion!  photo 83_zps5y3zf3fe.jpg Of course, the end of one story is the beginning of another and the challengers are already lining up to face “The Night Train”. However, if the long road to the top was any indication, Gary Jackson isn’t the type to quit so easily and will be a tough man to dethrone as champion.  photo sicw 4_zps5bd7b9cz.jpg  photo sicw 5_zpswake3gbs.jpg  photo sicw1_zpshcjd5re4.jpg  photo sicw 2_zps57s1iwrm.jpg

Heath Hatton had been a fighting champion ever since defeating the Ironman Ken Kasa on July 26th in East Carondelet, Illinois. Since that time he has been the hunted by many of the toughest men in the Midwest today, including the “The King of Chaos” Ricky Cruz, Ken Kasa, and Bull Bronson. Yet, it would be one man who has been relentless in his pursuit of the SICW title and that man is none other than Flash Flanagan.

Flanagan has a long history of calculated violence in his career as he made his way to Puerto Rico to the WWE earning a reputation as a bulldozer that has been known to put true fear in fans as well as his opponents. The first piece of business was getting under the skin of the champion Hatton when he targeted Hatton’s protégé “The Man of Tomorrow” Daniel Eads. Flanagan dished out a brutal beating on the rising young star during a match, that brought out the champion to make the save.

That set up a title match in Fairmont City where Flanagan nearly cheated his way to victory, but the decision was reversed and Hatton was able to fight another day as champ. After a successful title defense back in East Carondelet, Illinois against Travis Cooks’ body guard Bull Bronson, Hatton once again was staring across the ring against Flanagan in the cold November night.

Early and often in the match the challenger Flanagan worked on Hatton arm. Just as it look as if Hatton was about to take over, one minor mistake would lead to a world of pain for the champion when Hatton accidentally took out the ref with a blind cross-body off the second rope. Hatton locked in the crippler crossface on Flanagan , but the ref was still down and didn’t see the tapout. When Hatton attempted to revive the referee, Flanagan struck with a superkick and then a ruthless blow to the head via his kendo stick. Flanagan thought he had won the belt, as the referee counted 1-2-2 and a half, before Hatton kicked out. When Flanagan attempted to use a steel chair, Hatton was a step ahead of him and reversed it for an Irish whip into the chair, then attempt a rollup to end the match, but Flanagan blocked it and held onto the ropes to end the reign of Heath Hatton as the SICW Champion.
