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.

Thank you Trevor Murdock.

Trevor Murdock will look for WWE gold in 2011 *Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat *

When it was announced on July 3rd 2008 that Trevor Murdock was released from WWE and his short time with TNA came to a close there was many in the Midwest that was sadden by the news

Little did we know the blessing to the Midwest wrestling scene with that chain of events that brought the former WLW Champion back home.

During his return Trevor would touch the lives of many.

Photobucket

Midwest top wrestlers like Maddog McDowell could only improve by taking on Trevor Murdock. McDowell is sure to use what he learned in his match with Murdock to prepare him for his 3XWrestling title match this Friday against Brian Ash *Photo credit Brian Kelley*

In my opinion, for his old stomping grounds the World League Wrestling he would work hard with a very impressive young roster of talent that is now at WLW. I can only imagine what it has been like for young Brian Breaker, Jason Jones, The Cancun Kid, Lucy Mendez and several of the others to pick the brain of a man who not only made it to the WWE but was very successful.

Photobucket

Go to a WLW show and you will see a great core of talent that have been training with the charismatic Murdock.

For Kansas City and Metro Pro Wrestling, wrestling has returned with the big support of Murdock front and center. Metro Pro Wrestling debut with other stars as well including Tommy Dreamer and Adam Pierce but night in and night out at Metro, Murdock has been very instrumental in making Metro Pro Wrestling a success.

Photobucket

Trevor was open with charities, the young wrestlers and fans of the Midwest *Photo Credit Mike Van Hoogstraat*

Since his return we have been blessed to have Murdock be very supportive of Missouri Wrestling Revival. Always available to the fans and an interview, Murdock was awesome to work with each and every time.

Photobucket

Last year we were thrilled when Murdock agreed to be a part of the MWR Trading card set that turned out to be a very memorable card featuring his son that the fans will not forget.

Photobucket

There is no doubt that when the kids today get older they will tell their kids about the feud that Trevor Murdock had with Derek Stone at Metro Pro Wrestling * Photo credit Brian Kelley *

Most importantly, is the fans that have been able to see great matches at both WLW and Metro Pro Wrestling. Murdock has had one great match after another with the likes of Derek Stone, Maddog McDowell, Mike Sydal and Trent Stone.

Photobucket

WWE Stars will have to watch out for the punishing lariat from Trevor Murdock *Photo credit Mike Van Hoogstraat *

There is no doubt that this Trevor is a much improved version that the first time that he showed up at the door of WWE.

Regardless, Trevor if you wrestle ten matches or ten years more with WWE, we will be supporting and cheering you on all the way.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing the 4 time WLW Champion and Metro Pro TV Champion in the WWE Universe once again.

2010 Missouri Wrestling Revival Award winners

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 27, 2011

What a great year 2010 was for pro wrestling in the Midwest. Shows throughout the Midwest showed a steady growth in an economy that is struggling.

The biggest companies in the World, WWE and TNA both had pay per views in the Midwest. Fans were able to meet the stars at TNA’S fan fest. The ST Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame honored Dory Funk JR, Bobby the Brain Heenan and Baron von Raschke with their inductions to the hall of fame during the celebration.

Wrestling returned to Kansas City in a big way when Metro Pro Wrestling debut at the historic Memorial Hall with special guest Tommy Dreamer and a TV deal on Metro Sports. Led by former WWE Superstar Trevor Murdock, the Metro roster has to step up their game if they are to be the best if they are to stand out of the 3 time WWE Tag Team Champions shadow.

We were happy to add New Midwest Wrestling to our coverage area.At MWR we have seen some of the NMW talents in past in Dan the Man and Ryan Phoenix but we quickly saw that Bobby Houston, Eric Logan and NMW Champion Jonathan Magnus are just a few that are worthy of seeing in action as well.

Once again we were able to enjoy another great PWE show at the Lincoln Balloon Festival. PWE later in the year saw Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck go up against the fun lovin former WWE Star U-Gene and the Mississippi Madman.

We were able to see PWP get out of the grasp of the Murder Militia in a classic War Games match while on the other side of the state 3XWrestling continued their standard of providing the fans with great wrestling and an up and close look at their great website including the monthly Outside the Ring program.

In ST Louis MMWA-SICW was the 2009 MWR Promotion of the Year, but they did not rest on their laurels. They continued to train young wrestlers while bringing in some of the very best in Mark Sterling and Mike Sydal, fans where also  thrilled to see old favorites return like Danny Boy and Ron Powers.

AAPW had one of the very best feuds in the Midwest with Shane Rich turning his back on his good friend Edmund “Livewire” McGuire.

NWA Dynamo has brought back some of the GCW flavor and packed the house in a great show in the summer with Pete Madden and Mike Sharona going to war with Nikki Strychnine and Makaze in the main event.

HVW had a slow year but was proud to boast that HVW Original Santana G had made her way to Florida with a great opportunity to valet on Spike TV for TNA with Orlando Jordan.

World League Wrestling is primed to be at their very best with the young talent training at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy. Don’t be surprised to see the talents of Jason Jones, the Cancun Kid, Lucy Mendez, Jack Gamble, Brian Breaker and Ethan Wright hold titles throughout the Midwest and beyond in the near future.

IHW proved that they were one of the best with entertaining shows that grew more and more fans each time. Brandon Aarons has turned into the one of the biggest fan favorites in all of the Midwest. Eric Allen and Sean Vincent would test the skills of the rising young star.

MECW mixed hometown flavor with a dose of Windy City Wrestling, including former WWE Star Mike Anthony and the one and only Bailey Mannix along with teen heart throb Evan Money.

IWA Unlimited provided the fans of Olney Illinois with free wrestling each Wednesday. High flying and hard hitting action gave the wrestlers a chance to improve their skills in a great environment.

IWA Productions packed the house with special guest The Honky Tonk Man but it was the local fans that stole the show when Christian Rose and Danny Cannon tore the roof off the place.

NWA Supreme shows may not have that many shows but the ones they did have where filled with some of the best stars locally and nationally.

MWR wrestlers have been active working to get to the top. Mike Sydal was announced as the 2009 PWI Rookie of the year while Midwest stars Mark Sterling, Ace Hawkins, Brandon Espinosa all made appearances with Ring of Honor.

The fans and friends of Barry Ryte showed their support for their guy after he was diagnosed with cancer causing him to back out of the 2010 ECWA Super 8 tournament. Barry has shown in the ring that he has the heart of a champion, and that fighting spirit has helped him It has been announced that he has been cleared to wrestle in 2011. If we had an inspirational wrestler of the Year he would have won hands down.

Fans were blessed to have the Champion of the World Tyler Black make their way to their hometown as Tyler Black met Jeremy Wyatt at 3Xwrestling in Des Moines Iowa, while in Illinois Black went one on one with Brandon Aarons.

This fall word got out that the Future Donovan Ruddick had made his way to Florida with a developmental contract for WWE. He joined the before mentioned Black who has since lost his title to Roderick Strong but we all know the best is yet to come for Tyler Black.

I hope that you have enjoyed the coverage of all of your favorite promotions. It is with the hard work of Dubray Tallman, Mike Van Hoogstraat, Bill Smith, Gary Giaffoglione, Matt Murphy, Greg Anthony , Dartallion Allen, Mark Campos, Josh Ray and Rob Schamberger that makes the site what it is today.

We would like to thank the promoters and wrestlers that support the site for the past three years.

Last but not least thank you so much to the fans of pro wrestling in the Midwest. Take the time to see a wrestler before they become the next Superstar.

On January first we were proud to announce that Mike Chapman was named as the 2010 MWR Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. For more info on Mike Chapman click here.

Now with further ado I give you the 2010 MWR yearly awards.

2010 Wrestler of the Year

The wrestler of the year was a close vote this year as the surge of Mark Sterling coming within votes to be named for the second year in a row for MWR Wrestler of the Year. Meanwhile Donovan Ruddick had a great push thanks to great performances in 2010 against Dave Vaughn, Mephisto, and the Mississippi Madman. Hard work would pay off for Ruddick as the opportunity that many felt was long overdue, came to pass when he was signed to the WWE developmental contract late this fall. Jeremy Wyatt and Trevor Murdock both garnered several votes thanks to what many voters voiced their respect for each of these men. Last but not least just on the outside of the voting range was Brandon Aarrons who and his former tag team partner Brandon Espinosa .

Mike Sydal toured the country in 2010 wrestling in matches each and every week. Promoters loved him, fans cheered him and the country noticed. His hard work and dedication combined with a true desire to improve earned made him the second wrestler that took part in the WLW/Noah camp that won the PWI Rookie of the Year.

Sydal was just getting started, during Wrestlemania weekend he was in California wrestling with Ring of Honor. He would continue wrestling with Ring of Honor training at their training center before making appearances on Direct TV’S HDNET against Tyler Black, Christopher Daniels and more.

In the fall Sydal returned to much fan fare. At Metro Pro Wrestling, Rock and Roll Mike Sydal was once again on TV with Metro Pro Wrestling against the former WWE Tag Team Champion Trevor Murdock.

At 3XW he was involved in one of the most emotional matches of the year when he was force to face “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson. Thompson defeated his High Flyers’ partner Mike Sydal following a Dublin Driver in a very emotional and hard fought Loser Leaves 3XWrestling match set up by 3XW Commissioner Todd Countryman in May. Fans rejoiced when Thompson overcame the odds to defeat Brian Ash in November to allow Sydal to once again return.

Throughout the year of 2010 Sydal popped up just about everywhere good wrestling could be found.

Sydal has earned the respect of his peers and promoters and it showed in the 2010 in the final vote. Out of 14 awards committee voters the lowest Sydal got were 16.

We would like to congratulate Mike Sydal as the 2010 MWR Wrestler of the Year.

Attitude Inc. (Guy Smith, Spencer Powers, and Michael Shard)

New Midwest Tag Team Champions : Attitude Inc – Spencer Powers, Michael Shard and Guy Smith

Attitude Inc is a flashy tag team that has electrified the ring at New Midwest Wrestling for the past year. All three men are former NMW Heavyweight Champions who have come together and found success. Like the Freebirds, Attitude Inc have mixed partners to their advantages. Their success and talent has won over the awards committee.

At the start of the year they dismantled the faction the Sin Club of Steve Bishop, Dave Parker and Dareian Frost in impressive fashion.

In July the they outlasted the tag teams of Logantyre (Eric Logan and Justin McEntyre) , The New Immolare (Tom Arson and Ryan Phoenix) and the Full Metal Jackals( Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) in an exciting four way match to win the NMW Tag Team titles.

In consecutive months of October and November they defeated the up and coming tag team the Full Metal Jackals (Danny Cannon and Alex Castle) to retain the NMW Tag Team Titles.

Though Attitude Inc has their hands full with the tag team of the Uninvited (Rip Mystic and Tom Arson) heading into 2011, the team can hold their head up high that MWR has named them the 2010 MWR Tag Team of the Year.

2010 MWR Promotion of the Year

3Xwrestling

3XW’s fifth year proved to be the best yet, featuring a mix of incredible wrestling, packed crowds, strong business relationships within the community, and a continuing commitment to charitable efforts.
Despite the common perception that interest in wrestling is on the decline, 3XW enjoyed consistently growing crowds throughout the year, routinely packing the Des Moines Social Club each month for events thanks to a loyal – and growing – following and strong television, radio, print and word-of-mouth advertising, not to mention the most talented roster of wrestlers in the entire Midwest.

This past July, 3XW also had the honor of being the last wrestling promotion to hold matches in historic Veterans Memorial Auditorium, a building with 55 years of wrestling history. The athletes of 3XW competed in the same building that NWA affiliates, particularly Central States, held matches years ago, not to mention some major WWE/WWF/WCW moments.

3XW’s webshow, Outside the Ring, enjoyed an increasing number of views, as did 3XWrestling.com, which was visited by thousands of fans each month.

2010 MWR Match of the Year

Jeremy Wyatt vs. Tyler Black – 3XW – April 2, 2010

Spring Showdown at 3Xwrestling was a monumental night of pro wrestling featuring one of the top wrestlers in the Midwest proving to the world that he could hang with the Champion of the World.

The two wrestled to a 30-minute time limit draw in an incredible wrestling match that earned a standing ovation from the crowd after the final bell. The last minute of the match saw referee Jeromy Robb inadvertently get crushed in the corner by both men and fall to the canvas. Black quickly nailed Wyatt with a tremendous reverse brainbuster and covered him for the pin, only there was no ref to count the pin. As Black was checking on the ref in the corner, Wyatt slowly rose to his feet and grabbed Black from behind, slamming him hard with his patented Kansas Tumbleweed (Lightning Spiral) and covering him for the pin with 20 seconds remaining, only for the ref to still be out. Wyatt screamed and pleaded for the ref to get up to no avail and he even counted the pin himself. The time then ran out before a winner could be determined but the fans gave a standing ovation.
