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.

MWR VS RING OF HONOR

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 25, 2015

I have been sitting here for the past couple of months speaking to fans about many of the great wrestling shows in the near future. Recently Proving Ground Pro ,Pro Wrestling Championship Series, High Risk Wrestling and St Louis Anarchy that have  exciting events that featured Ring of Honor Superstars Tommaso Ciampa, reDRagon, Jimmy Jacobs, and A.C.H.

That got me talking to several fans, promoters and wrestlers in the area to fantasy book a star studded night of wrestling that would feature wrestlers from the MWR coverage area and those from one of the hardest hitting promotions in the world today, Ring of Honor.

I tried to find matches that have not been done in this area (If so very rare) that promised to be hard hitting matches that could match any in the world today. After taking a moment to check out the list, feel free to send in your choices for this supercard.

Who did we miss? Was there a better match-ups?

Please note that is all for fun and in no way do I feel there should be this many matches on a card, but in good fun we will imagine this is a supercard double shot.

Ron Powers vs Michael Elgin

 photo michaelelgin2_zpsuwq9pktv.png

 photo IMG_6168_zpsialfjkzj.jpg

In a battle between two of the most powerful men in the Midwest in the past thirty years Michael Elgin vs Ron Powers would be a sight to see. Though Powers is several years older, we have seen at SICW that he can be down right scary for his opponents . I love big men and have been thrilled to photographed these two throughout the past 6 years . Each of them are old school in their approach in the fact that they give the fans a 100 percent each and every night and I would love to lock horns in the middle of the ring in 2015.

The Black Hand Warriors vs reDRagon

 photo 0a_zpsy9uleyxx.jpg

 photo fish_kyle_zpstnz3emup.jpg

Out of nowhere the Black Hand Warriors came in 2014 to become one of the best tag teams in the Midwest. A double champion at Harley Race’s World League Wrestling  and Dynamo Pro Wrestling under the tutelage of Travis Cook, they have been involved in some of exciting wars with the BumRush Brothers and High Level Enterprise. I feel as if reDRagon are the best tag team in the world today, and have been pleading for the promoter of High Risk Wrestling , Frank Thurman to sign this match.

Jeremy Wyatt vs. Alberto El Patrón

 photo 35_zps44027f17.jpg

 photo alberto2_zps06um139s.png

To be honest I could put Jeremy Wyatt in a match with a new student of Ring of Honor and I have no doubt that it would be among the best matches on the card.  Alberto El Patrón  has the wealth, the title history advantage of a 4-time World Champion, but if I know the Rebel as well as I do he would not wilt under pressure, thus making this is an historic match that would be talked about for years.

 photo mpppp_zps8iyhzwln.jpg

Editors note: Metro Pro Wrestling delivers to their fans THIS Friday night an exciting Jeremy Wyatt match against a Ring of Honor Superstar Christopher Daniels in Kansas City. This will be the second ever match between two of the most exciting stars in the country and a match that promises to be one of the best matches of 2015.

01/31/2015 Metro Pro Wrestling (Turner Recreation Center) 831 S. 55th St. Kansas City, KS 66106 Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Event starts at 7 p.m. Front Row: $20 General Admission: $15 Kids 5-12 (Does not count front row): $10 Under 5: Free

Darin Corbin vs. R.D.Evans

 photo DC_zpscgmnmnkc.jpg

 photo rdevansbio_0_zpswmbhywwl.png

I have a feeling that this match has been done before, and if so it makes sense. Both of these men are highly entertaining, and able to deliver an enjoyable match that would be very different that the series battles that we mentioned above.

Jake Dirden vs. Tommaso Ciampa

 photo tommaso2_zpsvlh8joap.png

 photo jake-dirden_zps4mjcakik.jpg

I once heard Jake Dirden say in an interview that he looked forward to wrestling against Ciampa; therefor I offer him the opportunity in my dream card. Honestly, this match would be very awesome as Ciampa is very capable of bringing out the beast in Dirden, and it maybe for the best as he will have to be at the top of his game to survive a focused Ciampa.

The Hooligans vs. The Briscoe Brothers

 photo tumblr_m5az8dj0qM1r3fvlyo1_500_zpsr5vttykn.png

 photo 550563_515213985185032_389463958_n_zpsjfisgmyp.jpg

My favorite Tag team today, the Briscoe Brothers meeting the#1 ranked  tag team in the Midwest during the MWR years. The Hooligans and the Briscoe Brothers are an obvious choice.

Mark Sterling vs. MOOSE

 photo moose2_zpsfs9kcxrc.png

 photo 48_zps65653acc.jpg

Mark Sterling has been a man that is considered to be among the most talented men in the Midwest.  I feel that deserves a spot at the E  for his work ethic and dedication in the ring. . Moose , a former NFL football player has the size and charisma to rise to the top of the sport, so it would be interesting to pit a man with a chip on his shoulder like Sterling against an Indy darling so young in his career in the one and only Moose.

Davey Vega vs. Christopher Daniels

 photo IMG_4856_zpszyuvybb5.jpg

 photo danielsfull_zps3qsvkrab.png

Vega has proved to many in 2014 that he is capable of defeating Ring of Honor Superstars, and a win against the ultra-talented , highly versatile Christopher Daniels would cement his reputation.

The Young Bucks vs. High Level Enterprise

 photo 426a85dcd1a4d488fd9c63ffd59459b3_zpsowcf8ssw.jpg

 photo 3_zpscncrng4b.jpg

The battle of the Superkicks will be the name of the game when these two go at it. Jon Webb fresh off of his training with the Pro Wrestling NOAH Dojo, has returned to his partner Jack Gamble to train at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy becoming a team that is capable of challenging the world traveled team of the Young Bucks.

Ricky Cruz vs. Jay Lethal

 photo 19_zpsca2910a6.jpg

 photo lethalbio_zpsk6iuuod8.png

Ricky Cruz is well known for his big win capability throughout his career in the Midwest. The exciting Jay Lethal would bring the ferociousness in their match to test Ricky Cruz as the true King of Chaos.

Mike Sydal vs Matt Sydal

 photo mattsydal2_zpsykofklee.png

 photo 68_zps9469ad98.jpg

I normally hate good guy vs. good guy matches to be honest. Yes, I could have pitted them as a team against the likes of the Viking War Party, the New Midnight Express or the Professionals that would be awesome, but instead decided to have a match on the card to show why I feel as if Mike Sydal is one of the most under-utilized men in the sport today.

Brandon Espinosa vs. AJ Styles

 photo espy_zps7ewhhvay.jpg

 photo ajstyles_zpsetl13mfq.png

The ultra talented Brandon Espinosa has shown that he is capable of doing whatever it takes to get the win. A perfect opponent for A.J Styles as Espinosa is student of the game and would be very prepared to take on one of the top wrestlers today.

Gary Jay vs. Adam Cole

 photo adamcole2_zpsj1o7vprq.png

 photo 26_zps164cb711.jpg

Gary Jay is one of the longest reigning champions in the area as he currently holds onto the St. Louis Anarchy Championship while Adam Cole is a former Ring of Honor Champion. These two men have shown in the past that they are willing to do whatever it takes to win a match so it will be fun to see who comes up with what to win this match.

The Prodigy” Mike Bennett vs. Trevor Murdoch

 photo akprohase6sept6353_zpsi7qdsjnq.jpg

trevorrhodes

Mike Bennett and his First Lady of ROH Maria Kanellis, has earned a reputation to do whatever it to do whatever it takes to get the win. A top tier athlete that would have to use all of his skills and tricks to pull one over on the former 3-Time WWE Tag Champion Trevor Murdoch.

Roderick Strong vs Leland Race

 photo roderickstrong2_zpsmgegwko4.png

Jason Jones

Both of these men are driven to be the very best in the sport today.” Mr. Ring of Honor “Roderick Strong vs the WLW Champion would promise to deliver a technical masterpiece filled with backbreakers, suplex’s and uppercuts that the fans will feel from the front row to the back.

ST. Louis Anarchy Delivers on the First Night of a Double Shot

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 15, 2014

 photo sla_zps3352c8cb.jpg

By David J. McCutcheon

The gloves are off. St. Louis Anarchy has decided to take the wrecking ball and break down the barriers that define the local wrestling scene. By incorporating top indy stars that have become St. Louis transplants for years, such as Davey Richards and Kyle O’Reilly, Anarchy has become a premiere promotion in the Midwest territory. Show runner Pierre Abernathy and Co. have taken their dedication to putting St. Louis on the National map one step further in 2014, bringing in the likes of Roderick Strong and one half of the Young Bucks, Nick Jackson, to their two-night Gateway to Anarchy 2014 celebration.

The card is subject to change, and boy, did it ever. Injuries and commitments to TNA took away the likes of the aforementioned Richards, Matt Jackson, and Eddie Edwards in what would have been his St. Louis Anarchy debut. The bookers at Anarchy did not allow such travesties to have a lasting effect on their product, bringing in Strong and Dragon Gate USA Open the Freedom Gate Champion Johnny Gargano to fill their shoes. The opening show was one of Anarchy’s strongest yet, even without mainstays such as ACH and Richards on the card. This is a testament to the depth of Anarchy’s roster, one of the finest in all of the country.

JoJo Bravo d. Evan Gelistico via pinfall

After suffering a devastating loss to the strongman Michael Elgin his last go ‘round, JoJo Bravo came out swinging against the former St. Louis Anarchy champion, Evan Gelistico. It was all fun and games in the squared circle until Gelistico grounded the sumo sensation with a series of submission holds. Once Bravo broke free, he slammed a Samurai Driver out of a series of reversals for a decisive upset victory.

Brandon Espinosa d. Bolt Brady via pinfall

Everything gets misinterpreted once Brandon Espinosa gets in a St. Louis Anarchy ring. The St. Louis standout has made passes at the competition since his debut, and uses this tactic to get the upper hand in most contests. These lewd, flashy tactics—including a post-match celebratory butt-pinch—managed to unsettle the faster-than-lightning Bolt Brady, taking him out of his game for a pinfall victory with the frog splash.

The Hooligans d. Dan Walsh and Jeremy Wyatt (with Greg Jovi) via pinfall

Darren Dean, the original partner of Jeremy Wyatt, could not make it. Wyatt’s urging of a mystery partner to come out from the back opened up the perfect ambush for Dan Walsh from the other direction, marking his return to Anarchy after cutting a scathing interview on the company months ago. The Hooligans cleaned house before Walsh and Wyatt took control of Mason Cutter, isolating him from

his brother. Things boiled over once the tag was made, and it was the Hooligans who removed Walsh from the equation before taking down Wyatt with a sunset flip.

Darin Corbin d. Angelus Layne via pinfall

Once former St. Louis Anarchy champion Darin Corbin injured Angelus Layne at a previous Anarchy event while aiming for her partner, Brandon Espinosa, Layne has been salivating at the opportunity to knock the morality crusader Corbin down a peg. Many cheap shots and low blows were given throughout the bout, the final one coming at the foot of Corbin, leading to a devastating cutter to end the match. While she came up short, Layne was one of the night’s standouts in her breakout performance, earning the respect of the fans with her profane silver tongue and never-say-die attitude.

Arik Cannon d. Ricky Starks via pinfall

The charismatic Ricky Starks tried to open the contest by belittling the veteran Arik Cannon’s penchant for beer. He’d soon have a face full of it after a brawl to the outside, with Cannon using his alcoholic mist to blind the eyes of the pretty boy Starks. After a bout filled with submission holds, it was the brainbuster that inevitably ended the night for Starks, a final measure to cease his yapping.

Roderick Strong d. St. Louis Anarchy Champion Gary Jay (with Dorian Victor) via pinfall (Non-Title)

Gary Jay’s lackadaisical approach to the ring in his non-title match against one of the biggest names in independent professional wrestling, Roderick Strong, most certainly hurt him in the long run of this high-profile match. With no title on the line, Jay was arrogant and slow to get back into the ring, telling the crowd he would “take [his] time” to dictate the pace. A master of the squared circle, Strong didn’t hesitate to give Jay a rude awakening from a daydream into a nightmare with a series of welt-wailing chops that fans all the way under the Arch could hear. Jay’s fighting spirit picked up but a moment too late, as the Strongbuster and a harsh boot ended the Champion’s night. Licking his wounds, Jay retreated with title in tow, while Strong looked as his name indicates.

Jordan Lacey (with Greg Jovi) d. Alex the Big Owl (with Jacob Dangle) and Alex Castle via pinfall

Tempers ran hot in the three-way dance that featured a recently-betrayed Alex the Big Owl. At the previous Anarchy event, Jordan Lacey turned on his tag team partner to align himself with Gary Jay’s BOSS faction. The Big Owl was hot and ready to tar and feather Lacey. Alex Castle was inadvertently double-teamed by the duo before being pinned by Lacey. Right as the Big Owl set his sights on Lacey, his own manager, the Australian Jacob Dangle, hit him with a low blow to clip Alex’s wings in the fight… an

elevated DDT later and it was all over. The Big Owl has seemingly lost all of his friends after these events.

Danny Cannon d. Zakk Sawyers via pinfall

Danny Cannon came out with the energy of a pack of track runners rolling off of energy drinks, kicking the turnbuckles and running around the ring. This was certainly an indication of how this match would begin and most definitely end, as the two young guns took Anarchy by storm with an inspiration offensive assault that included a pair of suicide dives and other aerial shenanigans. Cannon ended the fight with an utterly brutal double stomp from the turnbuckle to the head of Sawyers. The duo certainly surprised many in attendance, as several fans gave a standing ovation once the dust had settled.

Kyle O’Reilly d. Christian Rose via submission

The two popular competitors came out on the eve of Kyle O’Reilly’s 2-out-of-3 falls title match against Gary Jay. All was going well for O’Reilly, as this physical contest was bearing no severe damage to his extremities, despite the hard-hitting Rose being his competition. A back-and-forth contest ended with the Arm-ageddon, O’Reilly’s patented cross-armbreaker, and all seemed well… until Gary Jay and his BOSS minions surrounded the ring, ready to pounce O’Reilly and Rose. Just as they were about to enter, Rose betrayed the man who made him tap, as Jay’s cronies unloaded on O’Reilly for several minutes. Leaving the challenger in a heap, BOSS fled as Jay laughed, knowing the damage was done to O’Reilly the day before the fight of his life.

More Shebang for Your Buck (Nick Jackson & Johnny Gargano) d. The Sex Bob-ombs (Mat Fitchett & Davey Vega) via pinfall

Johnny Gargano is no rookie when it comes to St. Louis Anarchy, so Nick Jackson recruited his help in place of his ailing brother. The competition was tough in Anarchy hero Davey Vega and fan-favorite Mat Fitchett. Coordination between Gargano and Jackson was not as smooth as the two would have liked in the early goings, with Jackson directing Gargano around the ring to where his brother would instinctually be. These few precious seconds cost the new duo, as the Sex Bob-ombs took advantage of every opportunity of miscommunication. A series of chain-superkicks left everyone unconscious on the mat near the end, but Gargano and “Indy Taker” Jackson carved up Fitchett with springboard spiked Tombstone.

The night was a huge success for Anarchy, breaking the attendance records with 300 people while marking the debut of a handful of new talent.
