The Barrio Boys Have Arrived
by Brian “Flair” Kelley
War was declared and it has been very ugly in Central States Wrestling since CSW’S “Reloaded”. Three masked men known as “The In Crowd” (later revealed to be Jason Strife, Tyler Cook and Payday Patterson) ambushed Central States Champion Michael Strider after he had just defeated Jeremy Wyatt in February in the very brutal no rope barb wire match. The effects are still being felt to this day.
Before it’s all said and done, causalities will be plenty as The In Crowd has recruited Steven Kennedy to assist them in their dominance of CSW’s fan favorites, but CSW has a bigger problem on their hands.
Domino Rivera, the Latino answer to Arn Anderson, speaks very little and is as fundamentally sound as they come. When he speaks you had better listen, because he brings the pain in every match.
Domino has won some big matches in the past. At CSW’s “Superstitions”, Domino ruined Mason Hunter’s Hall of Fame induction by defeating and bloodying Mason and then disrespecting him by unceremoniously dropping the plaque on top of him. Still, title opportunities have not came his way. This has left a bad taste in the mouth of Domino.
Enter Angel Medina, better known in the old ECW as Angel, part of the wrestling stable “Da Baldies” with Vito LoGrosso, Tony Devito, and Vic Grimes. Together they had a classic feud with New Jack over who was “King of the Streets”. Angel is one of the few men to have New Jack’s number and, wherever he goes, destruction follows.
Now known as the Barrio Boys, with Angel whispering in Domino’s ear one can never know what to expect. With Domino’s technical skills and Angel’s brutality, CSW is no place for the meek to make their mark. Right now the Barrio Boys are doing their best to finish off some unfinished business with Mason Hunter’s good friend Derek Stone and they proved how tough they were when they defeated the young tag team of Nate Bash and Benjamin Sailor at “Boiling Point”.
A word of advice to The In Crowd and CSW favorites: keep your distance and respect the Barrio Boys, because Domino and Angel are up to no good and they are just getting started. At CSW’s next show in Ottawa, Kansas on May 31, 2008 the Barrio Boys face Derek Stone and the up and coming wrestler Mike Sydal in what is shaping up to be a battle. Stone and Sydal will be fighting to merely survive the onslaught that the Barrio Boys plan to bring.
I am sure CSW Management will be holding their breath and hoping that Stone and Sydal can slow down the Barrio Boys, because, deep down, they know the In Crowd may be the least of their concerns. These two men, once an afterthought, could turn out to be a Central States nightmare.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you CSW!
Promoters around the Midwest, continue promoting your pretty boys and bodybuilders in the tag team division because if the Barrio Boys are on the card, bodies will fill the ring and your belts may never come back.
You can check out the Barrio Boys when CSW returns to Ottawa, Kansas this Saturday at the Ottawa Middle School which also goes towards a good cause as they support the Ottawa’s Triple A program.
