Wrestle Radio’s very own James Head and Jake Ryan Patty with Redwing. Thanks to this podcast and Metro Pro Wrestling the first 200 fans went home with a true collectable.

On Saturday July 30th, 2016 Metro Pro Wrestling handed wrestling fans another stellar card. We had huge stars such as Stevie Richards from ECW and Sonjay Dutt from TNA (Who is now the Global Force Wrestling Champion). There was even a Redwing MWR trading card give away sponsored by the Wrestling Radio Podcast to the first 200 paying fans.

Tina Noire of Galaxy Wrestling All-Stars & Noire Comics designed the awesome back of the Redwing Trading Card.

However this night on Saturday July 30th, 2016 was all about President Michael Strider and “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt.

As a Wrestling Fan in the Midwest we have watched President Strider and Jeremy Wyatt developed as two of the best Indy Wrestlers around. Going into this match “A War To End It All” President Strider hasn’t wrestled in 4 years this would be Jeremy Wyatt’s last match.

They have torn each other up all over the Midwest, however this rivalry kicked into high gear 2 years ago when President Strider dressed up as a Referee and cost Jeremy Wyatt his Metro Pro Championship to Derek Stone. This lead to the decision for President Strider to make that if Jeremy Wyatt were to loses his next match that he would be done at Metro Pro . President Strider brought in great talent such as Ricky Cruz and Christopher Daniels. For 2 years Wyatt was unbeaten untill April 2016 when Rhino beat Jeremy Wyatt for the Metro Pro Championship that he got back when he dressed up as Rebulucha. President Strider bought the Championship off Rhino. The next month in May, Jeremy Wyatt manipulated President Strider to get one last match in July where it be Jeremy Wyatt vs President Strider in an unsanctioned Street Fight. Metro Pro and not even the State of Kansas would sanction this Fight.

For President Strider this is his first match in 4 years and it lived up to the hype. Jeremy Wyatt for his final match just wanted to kick President Strider’s ass. For years they have been friends, rivals, back to friends and then more hated rivals. As a wrestling fan you have to respect what these brave men have accomplished. President Strider have won Championships and Jeremy Wyatt is the Belt Collector for a reason as he has won Championships everywhere he has competed. These two men fought all over the Turner Rec Center. They went through tables, chairs, and even had a Barbwire baseball bat that was used in horrific fashion. They used every type of weapon you could think of. Jeremy Wyatt made a promise that he would leave President Strider laying in a pool of his own blood. That’s what he did. After making President Strider bleed a lot he hit his Lightening Spiral for the Pin Fall.

I don’t blame Metro Pro or the State of Kansas to not sanction this Fight. It was a War. There was even blood shed all over the hard wood basketball court. For President Strider I have a new found respect for him. I want to thank him for everything he has done and for putting his body through hell for our entertainment!!

The Rebel Jeremy Wyatt, for that to be his last match he most definitely went out with a bang. I want to thank him for the years of entertainment!!

I would like to thank him for each show he stepped up and made each show better.

mpnaugnl-721

Thank you Jeremy Wyatt for the memories. You will be Mr. Metro Pro!! Have a Happy Retirement and you will always be Jeremy Wyatt “The Belt Collector”!!

MPW June 4th Recap Demolition Arrives, Jeremy Wyatt & Michael Strider Collide

Posted by flairwhoooooo on June 30, 2016

BBQ, music and laughter is what you would have walked up to even if you had planned to be one of the first people in line at Metro Pro’Wrestling‘s 6th anniversary show on June 4th. If you failed to drink a strong cup of coffee that morning you might have thought you were outside of Arrowhead Stadium with a bunch of wild fans. Come to find out Metro Pro fans aren’t too different from Chiefs fans in that they are loyal, loud and a little over the top. To no one’s surprise, it was the guys and gals of the Wrestle Talk Podcast and the WWE Universe Worldwide Chapter fantasy wrestling group. I expect that this isn’t the last time we will see or hear about this group. Especially since every Metro Pro show keeps getting better and better and this show was without a doubt better than the last and we are sure the next will be better than this one. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves because we have a lot of ground to cover as we breakdown this show. Just know this writer’s only goal is to make you wish you would have made this show and to get you fired up and exited for the next show coming up in July. So let’s get going!

The show inside the building kicked off with a match between the Math Magician and The Iceman (1/2 of Team Vintage).

metrolrdemo-1

This was a fun match where the fans especially the kids enjoyed themselves. Few things are as fun as counting along with the Math Magician when his music hits or even as he attempts to rally for a comeback. As fun as it is to count along with one guy it is just as fun to boo and heckle The Iceman. Who since has gone to “the dark side” has been on a slide. Sadly, (for him and Team Vintage) tonight was no different.

metrolrdemo-2

The Mathmagician was able to get the crowd behind him and pull off the big win in a match that lasted 6 minutes and 31 seconds. That was not the last time we would see the The Iceman this night.

metrolrdemo-3

Following the opening match the crowned was treated (I use that term loosely) to an appearance by President Michael Strider and his stunning partner in crime, Lucy Mendez. As you can imagine, they were met with a tremendous fan disapproval. Not more than 10 seconds in the ring Strider started bragging about how thanks to him Metro Pro fans would no longer have to see, hear or even have to worry about Jeremy Wyatt, all thanks to him and of course a little help with former ECW champion “The Man Beast,” Rhyno. All those who are familiar with the situation know what for over 2yrs Striders only goal has to rid Metro Pro wrestling of Wyatt, the undisputed fan favorite.  It was also pointed out that Strider had a piece of what seemed like toilet paper on his shoe which he had Lucy remove for him in all of his arrogance.

In an attempt to get back to business Strider reminded that crowd that this wasn’t just any show but Metro Pro’s 6th anniversary show and that night we would have the pleasure of seeing him accept the MWR wrestler of the year award on the behalf of the recently fired Jeremy Wyatt. Also that we would get to see some great matches in round 1 of the tournament to crown a new Metro Pro Wrestling champion. And of course that the legendary tag team Demolition would be teaming with fan favorite ‘The Commission’ in the main even match of the night, and a whole lot more. The best part of this segment of the show according to most fans is when it was over.

We then moved on to some more in ring action. First up we had Jon Webb vs Kiyoshi Shizuka.

metrolrdemo-9

Where even though Davey Vega was ring side and in Shisuka’s corner, Jon Webb was able to pull off the win in just under 13 minutes. This advances Webb to round two of the Metro Pro Wrestling tournament to crown the new Metro Pro champion and left both Shisuka and Vega with a bad taste in their mouths.

metrolrdemo-10

metrolrdemo-11

metrolrdemo-13

Next we moved into some hard hitting tag team action where we had a team the we will affectionately call “The Beards” Redwing and Jay Howard vs long time bad guys and well known trouble makers the KC Kings. This match as good as should be expected but just as Redwing and Howie had things well in hand the man known as Ace Steele felt like he needed to come out and make his presence felt by hitting Howard over the head with his central states championship. Surprisingly though, that would not be enough as Redwing was able to get the 1,2,3 even though his partner was outside the ring and out for the count at that moment.

metrolrdemo-21

New comer Rory Fox caught almost everyone off guard with this energy and skill as he faced Metro Pro’s resident bad guy “The World’s Fittest Wrestler,” Mark Sterling. As you would expect the KC King Brothers were there and they played their usual role of heel-aids by helping Sterling secure the win after several attacks on Rory with referee Michael Case’s back turned. Though he gave a valiant effort this almost 3 on 1 affair, it ended with Mark Sterling getting the win in a little under 9 minutes and 30 seconds.

metrolrdemo-23

The match between Kraig Keesaman and Jake Dirden started days before they actually faced off in the ring. A few days earlier there was some back and forth on Twitter on who exactly would come out on top in this match and move on to round two of the Metro Pro’s Championship Tournament. The fans seemed to be split right down the middle and Dirden and Keesaman both confidently asserted that they indeed would be winning this match. To no ones’ surprise by the time the match started we quickly found out that even after all the trash talking Keesaman did on Twitter he still felt to bring his insurance policy The Iceman to the ring with him.
metrolrdemo-24

metrolrdemo-25

metrolrdemo-26

metrolrdemo-27

metrolrdemo-28

metrolrdemo-29

In the end it didn’t matter, Dirden was too much for both Keesaman and The Iceman and put Keesaman away with a in a little over 10 minutes.

After 4 incredible matches since their last appearance President Michael Strider and Lucy Mendez made their way back into the ring this time to except the MWR wrestler of the year award that Brian Kelley himself would be presenting. Just as Brian would reluctantly begin to hand the trophy over to Strider who at this point is nearly foaming at the mouth at the idea of being handed this award, Jeremy Wyatt’s music hits and the crowed in the Turner Rec Center. Wyatt made his way in the ring and did something surprising and turned his attention to Brian Kelley and expressed what most people in attendance that are familiar with MWR and that work that whole crew does already knew. That the work they do is amazing and has been a cornerstone in helping to elevate wrestling in the Midwest to a whole new level. Brian and his wife in particular have spent years traveling all over to show support and uplift that sport that we all love dearly. The crowd was 100% in agreement and Brian was given a well-deserved standing ovation which lasted well over 2 minutes. This really seemed to catch Brian off guard and the look on his face was priceless. Truly a highlight moment of the night and one to be remembered.

Wyatt then turned his attention to Strider and the two locked eyes as they have so many times before. You could cut the tension with a knife at this point.
metrolrdemo-31

Wyatt proceeded to inform Strider that he would be accepting the MWR award himself and that he had some new regarding a letter he had in his possession via the Board Of Directors. According to Wyatt this letter guarantees a match No holds barred match at the July 30th show. Not only that, if Strider refused to sign he would lose his job as President and Wyatt would take over that position. After throwing what would be comparable only to the fit of 5 year old spoiled brat, Strider was forced to sign it.

metrolrdemo-32

Only to be told a few seconds later by Wyatt that he lied about him losing his job and it was all made up to get him to sign it. This indeed may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back because only a few seconds later Strider removed his shirt and challenged Wyatt to jump back into the ring. Which almost seemed to be exactly what Wyatt was waiting for.
metrolrdemo-33

metrolrdemo-34

metrolrdemo-35

metrolrdemo-36

metrolrdemo-37

metrolrdemo-38

Fists and kicks lashed out and it got so out of hand that the whole locker room was forced to come out and break them up. Flashes of Undertaker vs Brock Lesner went through the minds many as this was all going on inside and outside the ring for what seemed like an eternity.

metrolrdemo-39

metrolrdemo-50

Once the ring was finally cleared we go the in ring action back underway and there was no time for anyone to catch their breath because the following match included the fabulous Riegal Twins vs the always game KC Wolves. The match was high energy and high flying, first we were treated to a front flip by Sterling Riegal over one of the ring posts right on top of both KC Wolfs then we got an amazing cross body where Logan Riegal, was by the estimation of many over 10 feet in the air!

metrolrdemo-51

Once the action got back into the ring the KC Wolfs did the unexpected and resorted to the low blow behind the refs back and the Wolves ended up getting the win.

We also had to other great matches before the main event the delivered the goods. We had a unification match between Steve Fender and Ace Steele.

metrolrdemo-52

metrolrdemo-53

This match was bring the belts ( Kansas State Championship,) (Central States Championship) together to crown one true champion.

After a lot of hot dogging and fooling with the ref the action got underway and Ace Steele was able to pull off the win with a little help from Redwing to retain the Central States title and to unify it with the Kansas State title.

metrolrdemo-62

metrolrdemo-63

metrolrdemo-64

 

Next, we had hot up-and-comer and recent graduate from the KC Pro Wrestling Training Center, Bobby Blackshire face off against former Metro Pro champion Derek Stone in a hard fought match where to Savvy Ol’ Vet ended up getting the win.

13323554_1209224075762401_3399071822100658227_o

For the main event of the night we had the legendary Demolition team up with fan favorites “The Commission” to face a team full of stars to include Mike Sydal, Mark Sterling, Davey Vega and Kiyoshi Shizuka

metrolrdemo-65

metrolrdemo-66

metrolrdemo-71

metrolrdemo-72

metrolrdemo-101

metrolrdemo-73

metrolrdemo-74

This was a dream come true for many wrestling fans in the crowd. So many remember the legacy that Demolition left in there time in WWF and their title reign which is still the longest tag team championship reign of all time. The match did not disappoint and at one point there opponents couldn’t even decide who should go in the ring because they were so out matched by Demolition and the Commission. Near the end, something incredible happened, Axe and Smash decided to pass the torch to the next generation by helping Pierre and Gelistico set up the DEMOLITION DECAPITATION!

metrolrdemo-75

That as it always has been was enough to get the win and close out the show with a bang!

metrolrdemo-76

So at the end of the night, as awesome as it was there is still a lot of unfinished business. Lots of questions to be answered. Will this no holds barred match truly be the end of the rivalry between Wyatt and Strider? What other wrestlers will move on to round two of the tournament? Will Cobra Kai be back to defend their tag team titles, and if so, against who? One thing that is without a question is that some of the names that have already been released as scheduled to appear are the who’s who of pro wrestling to include Stevie Richards, Hype Gotti, Kevin Lee Davidson, and Sonjay Dutt. And that’s just what has been announced up to this point. Definitely a great time to be a fan in the Midwest because the local guys keep getting better and the stars that are being brought in are all class acts like Axe and Smash. That’s something that can’t be taken for granted. Nor is your chance to catch the next Metro Pro Wrestling show on July 30th at Turner Rec Center in Kansas City Kansas. See you there!

Wear the Dress …The Math Magician Defeats the Iceman

Posted by flairwhoooooo on April 1, 2016

The former fan favorite tag team of the Iceman and the Math Magician blew up in the end of 2015 when they failed to find success in New Breed Wrestling. The Iceman brutally attacked his former partner after a loss against The Riegel Twins leading to the Math Magician to challenge the Iceman in a match that he would risk losing his mask if he lost, but if he was to win the Iceman would have to wear a dress.

New Breed Wrestling returned in 2016 with a red hot crowd that came to their feet to see the former MWR Wrestler of the Year, Mike Sydal , the Vintage Kraig Kessaman and Kyle Roberts jump start the night in a triple threat match.

Kessaman and Sydal quickly teamed up on the young Roberts early on, but when it came time to get the win they were at a crossroads and all bets were off, still there are people that like these kind of bets online, and they go to sites as rivalo.com that allow people to do this. Roberts nailed several beautiful drop kicks on both men, but Sydal would pick up the win.

Italy’s finest Karim Brigante with Miss Monica Passeri was tested against the former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch in the second match.

The lovely Monica did everything that she could to distract Murdoch giving her man a much needed advantage against one of the most toughest men in the Midwest. Brigante pulled out all the stops hoping to pick up his biggest victories in his America tour, but it would have to wait another day as Murdoch hit his patented bulldog off the top rope and the 1-2-3.

hrwnarch-14

The hottest tag team in the Midwest, the The Riegel Twins (Logan & Sterling) came face to face with one of the top tag teams during the MWR years when where challenged by Steve Fender and Mark Sterling. The Riegel’s are known for their high flying and fearlessness, so it looked as if the team of Fender and Sterling hoped to frustrate the rookies by working the legs and leaning on them often while using the ref to their advantage.

Just when it looked as if the speed of the Riegel’s would win out, a distraction from Fender lead to a roll up from Sterling and a handful a tights as they stole the win.

hrwnarch-30

Just as her man Brigante was put to the fire against Murdoch, Monica Passeri went one on one with the two time MWR Female Wrestler of the Year, Heather Patera.

When Monica was not talking down USA and the fans ringside, she was impressive getting into the head of Patera on the way to a huge upset, thus putting her on the map in the Midwest in the female division.

In a tag team grudge match Ricky Cruz & Marc Godeker delivered a hard hitting bout against Leland Race and Cousin Gator. Back and forth the action went with the final moment coming when Godeker locked in an armbar submission to seal the win for his team.

The fans were loud and hyped all night and as the dress vs, mask match were announced by ring announcer Wendy Morris the fans came unglued. One group of fans were so excited that they planned ahead and brought their own pink tutu that got the crowd chanting wear the pink dress. As with any good promoter, they listen to their fans and NBW Promoter Scott Zie and commissioner Wade Chism went to the fans to get the tutu to add on to the stipulation if in fact, the Iceman would lose.

hrwnarch-62

hrwnarch-63

hrwnarch-65

The action was intense from start to finish as the referee was forced to remind the Iceman continually that he had to win the match before he could unmask him. Outside the ring the Iceman pounded on the Math Magician but back in the ring the place exploded when the Math Magician leveled the Iceman with the F5 for the win.

With fans on their feet and celebrating the Math Magician, Scott Zie and Wade Chism held up the dress for the Iceman to put on.

hrwnarch-68

hrwnarch-69

 

The Iceman at first refused but Commissioner Wade Chism delivered the message that if he did not honor his contractual agreement that he would be suspended for a whole year. With no other choice the Iceman put on the Math Magician dress, and out of nowhere attempted to take a cheap shot on Chism, the Math Magician super kicked him and added insult to injury by putting on the pink tutu.

The night would end with an important battle royal for a chance to earn a first round bye to the upcoming tournament to crown the first ever New Breed Wrestling Champion. Each competitor threw caution to the wind as old rivals and friendships all clashed and often teamed up. Out of nowhere Steve Fender threw out the last man Ricky Cruz  to earn the right to get the edge heading into the tournament that will begin on April 30th in Sedalia, Missouri.

A High Risk Show Pays off in Warsaw

On February 27, 2016 High Risk Wrestling, a St. Louis mainstay since 2014, brought their brand of wrestling to the small town of Warsaw, Mo. Frank Thurman, the owner of High Risk Wrestling, recently decided to move his shows from the St. Louis area to Warsaw.

The show was highlighted with the first round of a tournament to decide who the new High Risk Heavyweight Champion was going to be after Blake Belakis relinquished the title shortly before the move.

In the first match of the tournament we saw “The Yoga Monster” Mike Sydal pick up an impressive victory over Paco.

The two high flyers put on an amazing match to open the show and really got the crowd of over a hundred people into the show from the start.

The show wasn’t just about the tournament though, The Magic Man  introduced the crowd to a special attraction.

 photo 71_zps58suy8cb.jpg

All the way from Japan, Kiyoshi Shizaka made his debut with the Magic Man issuing an open challenge on his behalf. As fast as his Monster fueled legs could carry him John E. Rock was in the ring and hyped for the challenge.

In an impressive display of aerial maneuvers and super quick feet Shizaka proved to be a little too much for the crowd favorite, and beat Rock with a backslide pin. Showing his respect to the better man that night Rock bowed to his opponent before exiting the ring.

The theme of the night seemed to be sportsmanship and respect for one’s opponent up to that point in the night, but when Tyler Copeland extended his hand to Jack Gamble in the next quarter final match for the High Risk Championship bout, Gamble was treated to a boot to the gut for his trouble.

Gamble shook it off and went to work on Copeland. The two men had a great back and forth match with multiple two counts, but Copeland decided Gamble came to close one too many times. With a quick low blow while the ref’s back was turned Copeland rolled up Gamble for the win.

Next up the ultra-charismatic bad guy Elvis Aliaga took on The Math-Magician in the third quarter final match in the tournament.

 photo 217_zpsfadx159g.jpg

Elvis tried to confuse his opponent before the match even started with some impossible math problems, but they proved to be no problem for the Magician. Unfortunately, Aliaga himself proved to be a problem as he pinned him 1-2-3 to advance to the next round of the tournament.

The final match in the tournament that night saw two veterans, Tony Kozina and Jeremy Wyatt, in a one on one match that was easily main event material. As the two battled back and forth in the ring, “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton took an interest in the match and came out to ringside to observe. Eaton’s distractions kept Wyatt off his game just enough for Kozina to pick up the win and advance to the next round in the tournament.

 photo 322_zpsnc4i1gzv.jpg

Obviously unhappy with the result of the match, Wyatt confronted the legend which quickly escalated from verbal confrontation to Wyatt laying Eaton out with a punch to the jaw. With all four matches in the tournament in the books we will see Mike Sydal, Tyler Copeland, Elvis Aliaga, and Tony Kozina advance to the semi-final round on April 23rd to decide who the next High Risk Champion will be.

The newly coined MWR Missouri Championship was on the line next as champion Ricky Cruz defended his title against Brandon Aarons and his manager Garrett “Freakin” Williams.

 photo 418_zpsklnjlleh.jpg

After much primping and preening by Aarons the match finally got underway. In a spectacular display of power and agility Cruz seemed to have Aarons number at every turn. Even with the constant interference of manager Williams, including choking the champion in the bottom rope and a jab to the throat from Aaron’s brush, Cruz came out on top retaining the coveted Missouri Title.

The main event of the night was for High Risk Wrestling Tag Team Titles. Champions Mike Outlaw and Justin D’air took on the up and coming Riegel Twins to see who the best tag team in High Risk Wrestling was. Both teams were firing on all eight cylinders that night as they threw everything they had at each other. The Riegel Twins, who are relatively new to the wrestling scene, already have an impressive collection of tandem moves in their arsenal had their hands full with the champion duo of Outlaw & D’air.

 photo 501_zpsm2kqtc2j.jpg

 photo 527_zpsm0izgtnf.jpg

In an impressive display from both teams they battled back and forth and showed the crowd exactly why they all deserved to be in that championship match. With D’air on the shoulders of Logan, Sterling climbed to the top rope and delivered a devastating flying clothesline that put D’air down for the three count winning them their first tag team title victory in High Risk Wrestling.

After the match all four men shook hands in a show of respect even though a dejected Mike Outlaw was visibly upset about the loss of his belt.  Unfortunately, after hands were shook all around and the Riegels left the ring

 photo 533_zpsdf9q246i.jpg

 photo 536_zpsymvnxwsp.jpg

Outlaw, who was becoming more visibly upset as the celebration went on, took out his frustration on his partner D’air. Taking three referees and the Riegel Twins to pull him off the prone D’air, Outlaw left the ring only to be met by Bobby Eaton. For a second we prepared for a confrontation, but were surprised when Eaton simply raised his hand and nodded in approval to end the show.

With great stories told more through wrestling than talking, new wrestlers with different styles most haven’t seen before, diverse highly entertaining performers, and an overall family friendly atmosphere High Risk Wrestling really delivered for its audience. If this show is any indicator of the product Frank Thurman will continue to build on, his brand of wrestling is one we can expect many great shows from in the future. There is no doubt Warsaw Missouri has a new asset in their town.

Metro Pro Wrestling Packs the House to Start 2016

Posted by flairwhoooooo on February 4, 2016

By Debbie Chmidling

January 30 Metro Pro Wrestling was a sold-out crowd. People were packed in to see an amazing show and promoter Chris Gough did not disappoint. The opening bout was Jayden Fenix vs. Jay Howard.

 photo MPWJAN2016-41_zpsc7uwa80a.jpg

It was a fast-paced, action-packed match that left the crowd hungry for more. Howard took the victory with a submission move, much to the delight of the fans.

Next up was a segment with Commissioner Michael Strider. He came to the ring, his usual arrogant, cocky self, berating announcer Don Diablo for not holding the ring ropes even though Diablo was injured. Next up he discussed the Brass Ring Challenge featuring Jake Dirden, Kraig Keesaman and Devin Thomas, stating the winner would get a championship match at the time of their choosing. He was interrupted by Mark Sterling, reminding him that he was advertised for the match and wanting to know why he was taken out. Strider informed Sterling he was out because he “couldn’t get the job done” against Wyatt.

 photo 4_zpsywjtt1vb.jpg

Sterling countered that he had two falls against Wyatt in one night, something no one else had ever done, he is the only one in Metro Pro who has competed in three iron man matches, and a list of stars brought in to eliminate Wyatt also failed. Strider conceded Sterling could be in the Brass Ring Challenge, however, he had to win the match or be fired.

Kiyoshi Shizuka with Geek Singh vs Redwing for the Central States Title.

 photo 6_zpspzlrkhgt.jpg

At the outset, it was all Redwing on offense until Singh interfered, allowing Shizuka to attack Redwing from behind with a wicked chop block to the left knee. He continued to work on the knee for several minutes with clubbing blows and dropping on the knee several times.
 photo MPWJAN2016-121_zpstovbp1qb.jpg

 photo 8_zpschkegwil.jpg

 photo 7_zpsu8rfhhkd.jpg

At one point, Redwing made it to the ropes, Shizuka distracted the referee and Singh choked Redwing with the bottom rope. Redwing spent a great deal of time on defense for this match, but once he regained his feet, it was all over for Shizuka. Using a crushing power slam, Redwing pinned him to retain the title.

The Commission, Evan Gelistico and Pierre Abernathy, vs The King Brothers, Jake and Ryan, for the number one contender spot for the tag team title. The Commission may have had a great weight disadvantage, but they had so much pent-up aggression, they rapidly overtook The King Brothers.

 photo 3_zpsvrzl6kex.jpg

The Commission attacked before the King Brothers could take the ring. They made use of whatever was available against the Kings, including an assortment of objects from Todd’s trusty grocery cart and a kendo stick from Santa Claus. After several minutes of pure bedlam, both teams returned to the ring and the bell was sounded.
 photo 22_zpsbju2w4he.jpg

Again, it was The Commission on offense immediately and This Kings were never quite able to mount any offense. With the ref attending to a downed Ryan King, Gelistico took the opportunity to bend the rules by knocking out Jake King with the Rule book for the three count, ensuring them a title shot. While The Commission was celebrating in the ring, Kobra Kai Dojo, consisting of Mat Fitchett and Davey Vega stole in behind and attacked them.

After leaving The Commission lying in the ring, the despicable Geek Singh made off with The Rules.

Next out was Metro Pro Champion Ace Steel. He had quite a few unkind words for the people of Kansas City who said there was no one to contest him, so he was issuing an open challenge. He was quickly answered by the KC Wolves, Graham Bell and Luke Langley.
 photo 30_zpsdohswdqu.jpg

Since it would be a one-on-one match, Lucy Mendez, The Assistant Commissioner, said his opponent would be decided by a coin toss. The coin toss went to Langley, the bell sounded and the match began with Bell and Mendez ringside. Langley and Steel were pretty evenly matched, quickly changing from offense to defense several times until they both spilled outside the ring and Langley tweaked his knee. Langley threw Steel back in the ring as soon as he regained his feet, but this was the opening Steel needed.
 photo 20_zpsit7g8ps6.jpg

 photo 21_zpsb3xayl3l.jpg

He began to work on the injured left knee. After several minutes Bell entered the match, causing the disqualification. Steel grabbed the microphone and said he could beat them both in a handicap match and Lucy made the match. Bell came in on very strong offense and it looked like the Wolves had it locked up until Langley was tagged in and while the ref’s back was turned Mendez pulled Langely’s bad leg from under him to allow Steel to get the pin.

Brass Ring Challenge with Kraig Keesaman vs Devin Thomas vs “Dirty” Jake Dirden vs Mark Sterling for a chance at the Metro Pro Wrestling Title. Initially, Sterling slid outside the ring while Thomas and Dirden double-teamed Keesaman. When Keesaman went down, Sterling rolled in and attacked Thomas.

 photo 14_zpsibcvgetg.jpg

 photo 13_zpszg0b1oly.jpg

 photo 12_zpsbkuwe4lq.jpg

 photo 29_zpspjfg41sa.jpg

Keesaman and Sterling formed an uneasy alliance against Dirden and Thomas, while the King Brothers stood guard outside the ring, mostly informing the fans to “Shut Up”. With Dirden and Keesaman both outside, Sterling rolled up Thomas and held his tights to win the Brass Ring Challenge.

Trevor Murdoch and Derek McQuinn hit the ring for a promotional announcement of the opening of the Kansas City Pro Wrestling Training Facility on February 8.

12622057_1116444098373733_9148977075223643954_o

It will be a place to train up and coming wrestlers as well as a place for current wrestler to work out and improve. They invited all the fans to spread the word. McQuinn is a personal trainer/professional wrestler and Murdoch is a former WWE talent who is now a wrestler on the independent scene.

After a 20-minute intermission, Mike Sydal vs Jon Webb was up.

 photo 28_zpslzay01n0.jpg

These two are both known for high-flying moves, acrobatics and quickness.

 photo 11_zps1ix0salv.jpg

They gave the crowd plenty of all three in a very good back and forth, fast-paced match that saw Sydal take the win with a roll up and a handful of tights.

New to the Metro Pro scene are the Riegel (pronounced Regal) Twins, Logan and Sterling to face their opponents Kobra Kai Dojo, with Geek Singh for the Metro Pro Tag Team Title.
 photo 10_zpseksb9jhz.jpg

This was once again a fast-paced, high flying match. Eventually, to the great delight of the fans, The Riegels appeared to have Kobra Kai Dojo on the run.

 photo 9_zpstdj1jmyu.jpg

Even when Geek Singh was distracting the attention of the referee, that didn’t slow the Riegels down. The man in the ring was hurt and the one on the apron rolled in for a little bit of that twin magic. At that point, Geek Singh pulled the ref out of the ring and distracted him while Fitchett hit one of the Riegels with the Rules and Vega low-kicked the other.

 photo 8_zpsns9z7wvx.jpg

 photo 7_zpspzmcbcye.jpg

This allowed Fitchett to get the pin and Kobra Kai Dojo retained the titles. When The Commission showed up for a measure of vengeance, Kobra Kai hotfooted it to the back.

Tracy Smothers with his sons hit the ring for an opening monologue and they talked about all the things that were wrong with Kansas City and how they couldn’t wait to get back to Tennessee. They bagged on The Chiefs, The Royals, The Kings, K-State, KU, the people of Kansas City.

 photo 6_zpsch6qakpa.jpg

Finally, Don Diablo was able to introduce the Math Magician. Smothers was again riled up because the crowd was chanting 1-2-3. He told the crowd not to chant 1-2-3, then he told them not to chant Tracy sucks which really got the crowd fired up. At one point, Math took a seat in the front row to watch the ranting. The opening bell sounded and after just a few moves, Smothers suggested a dance off.

 photo 4_zps7nkwaunf.jpg

 photo 55_zps7sq6qsdu.jpg

According to the crowd, neither opponent won the dance off and while Math Magician had his back to them, all three of the Smothers attacked him. Eventually, Math Magician was able to out-wrestle Smothers and when Smothers took him down for a pin, Math Magician reversed the roll up and got the win.

 photo 3_zpsxrckpiv1.jpg

Smothers took the mic again to tell the crowd how much he disliked them and he was glad to be leaving.

Next up was a battle of the Superheroes with Lucy Mendez as Batman and Miss Natural as Superman. Miss Natural showed us her ability to fly and was quite impressive.
 photo 2_zps2lmsafyg.jpg

 photo 1_zpsyqbcs4f0.jpg

Then she caught Mendez making fun of her and the match was on. Just when it looked like Superman would win, Batman grabbed Kryptonite from the ringside, disabling Superman and getting the pin.

Next up, for the Metro Pro Wrestling title was contender Beer City Bruiser Vs Champion Jeremy Wyatt.
 photo 27_zpssw1pwlvg.jpg

Of course, Strider had to come to the ring to “watch the match”. When Wyatt opened with several wrestling moves, Bruiser shouted “I want you to fight me, not wrestle.” No one could ever accuse Wyatt of not being accommodating. He unloaded with several shots to the head, threw Bruiser out of the ring, slammed his head onto the concession stand table and threw him into Todd’s cart of goodies. Then threw him back into the ring and asked if he had enough fighting. The match was filled with punches, chops and all out brawling. Another tussle sent them outside the ropes, which found Bruiser on the short end of the stick. While he was collecting his wits, Wyatt jerked him off the floor, pulled him to the bleachers and slammed his head onto the railing, raked his face across a zipper from the jacket of a fan and threw him back into the ring.

 photo 26_zpsygepioha.jpg

 photo 25_zpsegqlc3xw.jpg

Once back in the ring, it looked like Wyatt had a good hold on everything until Strider interfered once more. While Wyatt was down on the ropes, Bruiser distracted the referee while Strider choked Wyatt. As the match teetered back and forth and Strider continued to interfere, Wyatt found himself with the upper hand and was able to gain the pinfall. As he was celebrating his win, Sterling came to the ring to attack him, but Wyatt caught him coming into the ring and he rapidly exited out the other side where he stood with Strider.
 photo 24_zps8uctkuyw.jpg

Wyatt invited him to use his championship opportunity right then and there, but Strider held Sterling back. Eventually, Wyatt offered to leave the belt laying and walk away, win or lose, if Strider would agree to a match with him. Instead, Strider announced his opponent on the April 9th show.
