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.

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.

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 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 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.

For the title it will be Champion Jeremy Wyatt defending against the man-beast, Rhyno. This is a show you won’t want to miss, so get your tickets early, they sell out fast!

Metro Pro Wrestling Celebrates Five Years of Excitement

Posted by flairwhoooooo on July 2, 2015

By Brian Kelley

Five years ago Kansas City was virtually a ghost town for pro wrestling. Thanks to the hard work, dedication and professionalism of Chris Gough pro wrestling would not only return, but earn a reputation as one of the most respected Independent promotions in the country by fans and wrestlers alike.

BOOKING METRO PRO BANNER

Chris Gough’s road to reviving pro wrestling in the Midwest started off as a graduate at the University of Missouri that opened the road for a job at the top as a writer for the WWE during the beloved Attitude era. Gough would return home in the Kansas City area to start a new life in the world of pro wrestling as a promoter, under the banner of Metro Pro Wrestling with a TV taping at the historic Memorial Hall on June 5, 2010. For the past five years fans have been able to keep up with Metro Pro Wrestling on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel , while YouTube features close to one hundred and fifty episodes of the red hot action.

We caught up with just a few of the people that have enjoyed the hard work of Chris Gough and MPW to get their thoughts on the past five years.

Former three time Metro Pro Wrestling Champion Jeremy Wyatt – Metro Pro has been thru its ups and downs. The downs have nearly been devastating, but the promotion has always came out on the other end even better. You take Metro and put it on one of the coast, and it’s easily considered one the top promotions in the country. Being in the Midwest, it somewhat gets overlooked. I couldn’t be prouder to have been a part of this promotion since day one. Kansas City was a ghost town for so long, Metro made wrestling a big deal here again. I’m obviously winding down, but knowing Metro is only going to continue to get bigger and better makes a small part of me wish I could wrestle forever.

Current Metro Pro Wrestling Kansas State Champion Mike Sydal – When Chris Gough started Metro Pro Wrestling, he revived wrestling in KC. He created something special for the Kansas Citians who love wrestling.

Metro Pro Wrestling fan Debbie ChmidlingI enjoy knowing that there is a well-run group of Professional wrestlers (emphasis on Professional) locally that we can go watch and enjoy. I enjoy the camaraderie, the feeling of community and knowing I am among friends. I am also proud that when wrestlers who aren’t local and travel in to visit mention Metro Pro, they always mention that Chris Gough is absolutely the quintessential promoter

Former one half of the Metro Pro Wrestling Tag Team Champions Mark McDowell – Metro Pro & Chris G. had brought back the missing tradition of pro wrestling to the K.C. region and continues to bring a magic that fans and families can continue to enjoy.

Metro Pro Wrestling Wrestler The Iceman – When Chris started Metro Pro you had a good feeling from day one it was going to be something great and since Metro Pro bursted on the scene 5 years ago and made KC a hotbed for professional wrestling again it has given KC something else to be excited about…The Royals, The Chiefs and for the past 5 years Metro Pro Wrestling…Thank you Chris and thank you Metro Pro fans!

Metro Pro Wrestling fan Glen Enloe – Metro Pro Wrestling has grown from a hope to a thriving reality in just 5 short years. It has been a combination of exciting & creative matches along with a friendly atmosphere both on stage & back stage puts it ahead of many independent wrestling promotions. While we all hoped it would bring back the good old days of KCK’s Memorial Hall wrestling, I think we are all a little surprised & pleased that Metro Pro has lived up to the bill & in some ways surpassed it. Long live Metro Pro!

Metro Pro Wrestling fan Paul Johnson – I like to think of metro pro wrestling as one big happy family. The connection between fans and wrestlers is awesome. It’s what makes it the success it is today and will be in the future.

Ring Announcer Dan Gier – “METRO… Chris has had to answer many challenges… to build, then maintain quality “Indy wrestling” plus the added lore of Kansas City Wrestling established in fans for decades not only the live performances but TV as well… and those challenges have been met.”

They say when you are having fun, time flies and that has been so true with Metro Pro Wrestling. Metro Pro fans have had the chance to meet the 8-time NWA World Champion Harley Race, while witnessing the NWA World Title would change hands for the first time since September 17, 1981, (Ric Flair defeated Dusty Rhodes) when Adam Pearce defeated Colt Cabana on July 21st, 2012. Many of today’s national superstars have made their way to MPW including Tommy Dreamer, Christopher Daniels, Santana G, T.J. Perkins, Stevie Richards, Ace Steel and Kyle O’Reilly.

Though it may have been a great treat to have the world wide superstars appear at Metro Pro Wrestling, it has been a plethora of young talents that have gave their heart and soul to the promotion that has made sure that the fans clear their calendar. Homegrown talent and former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdoch lead the way at the start by defeating Michael Strider for the TV title at Memorial Hall. Striders historic road to the championship, as well as his feud with Derek Stone that led to a Ric Flair eques retirement that told a story that touch the hearts of the MPW faithful.

In the past, Kansas City grew to love Race, Bob Geigle, Bulldog Bob Brown, Rufus R Jones, but todays fans will tell their kids about the great matches of Jeremy Wyatt, Bull Schmitt, Mark Sterling, Mike Sydal, the Iceman, Kobra Kai Dojo, ACH, and Showtime Bradly Charles that they saw live in action at  the Turner Rec Center .

Though the promotion celebrated their five year existence on June 6th, there is no doubt that the future of MPW promises to bring even more thrills and memories for years to come.

Fans never know what to expect at a Metro Pro Wrestling event, so with the announcement of a special guest formally from WWE hinted on their website, the fans flocked the Turner Rec Center early. With a buzz in the air it was announced that the special guest interviewer formally of WWE was Lucha Underground’s Michael Striker. Fans can catch wrestler, now color commentator Michael Striker each and every week on the El Ray Network along side wrestling legend Vampiro. It could have been an easy payday for Striker to come to MPW and sign some autographs as he is a wrestling star seen on TV every week. But Michael Strider, who is now the MPW commissioner, has been on a quest to remove Jeremy Wyatt by proclaiming the next match that Wyatt loses will be his last at MPW shocked everyone in attendance when he enlisted Striker to challenge Wyatt if he was able to defeat Ricky Cruz at the beginning of the night.

The evenings main event would also be the return of ECW Legend Tommy Dreamer going to war in a NO-DQ match with the Worlds Fittest Wrestler, Mark Sterling.

Before we take a moment to check out the highlights of another exciting night of action of Metro Pro Wrestling, let me extended an invitation to you to become part of the MPW family on August the 8TH when they begin their march for five more years of action that you will not want to miss.

Adam Pearce offers an open contract for the NWA World title in Glen Carbon, Illinois on April 6th!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 29, 2012

By Brian Kelley

Photobucket

Adam Pearce is a 4-Time and current National Wrestling Alliance Worlds Heavyweight Champion.

Missouri Wrestling Revival was on hand once again for an historic weekend in the wrestling as the NWA Worlds Heavyweight champion Adam Pearce defended his title.

First it was in Des Moines, Iowa for 3XWrestling as Pearce looked to have lost the prestigious title to “The Belt Collector” Jeremy Wyatt. For more details on the very controversial match click here to see how “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce was able to leave Des Moines with his belt still around his waist.

The next night we traveled to Council Bluffs , Iowa to Magnum Pro Wrestling as hometown favorite “Babyface” Tony Cortez wrestled quite possibly the match of his life as his fans cheered him on. We will have a full recap of the match along with photos of the two warriors in action later this week at MWR.

Till then I do have to let you know that Pearce was able to retain the NWA World title, but his trips to the Midwest have been nothing short of near disasters each time. Prior to this weekend he had been to battle not once but twice with the former NWA Central States Champion and Metro Pro Champion Michael Strider. On each occasion, Strider left a lasting impression on the Worlds Champion with a war that the fans in Kansas City is still talking about today.

Not since Ric Flair has there been such an active NWA Worlds Champion and Adam Pearce is not backing down from no one. We received this video with a major announcement from the NWA Worlds Champion.

There you have it wrestling fans, the NWA Worlds Championship will be defended in Glen Carbon Illinois, on April 6th at NWA Dynamo Pro Wrestling, the same area that champions like Lou Thesz, Harley Race, Ric Flair, Dory Funk Jr., Gene” Kiniski and Pat O’Conner defended the title.

Pearce is now in his fourth title reign, and is better than ever. His experience, confidence and talent level is spectacular. We have heard reports that the contract has been signed, and as soon as we can verify the rumors we will let you know just exactly will have that golden opportunity to go down in the history books as a National Wrestling Alliance Worlds Heavyweight Champion.

Mark your calendars, fans in the St Louis area, the NWA Title returns on April 6th, 2012.

Don’t miss it.
