Kansas City wrestling fans! There is a new sheriff in town. His name is Jordan Smiley, President of Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling. July 30th KCXW hosted a double elimination event at Pearson Community Center in KCK. Two separate events, two cards, 14 matches.

We also got to see Curtis Wylde put through a table by Curt Gannon and Leo D, of the Stranglers, from the top rope at the end of the Tag Team Table Match. The audience seemed to love that turn out. There is something special about watching a wrestler get slammed through a table, It is almost as classic as the folding chair.

Then there's the folding chair. The most beloved of any wrestling character. We all love to see it. We all love the metallic thud it makes when someone is hit by it. It is the superstar of all foreign objects. It made several appearances between the two events.
As the evening continued I found myself impressed by this organization of professional wrestlers. Their moves were fluid and believable. They stayed in a constant state of audience participation, with fights leaving the ring and landing on the floor, or wrestlers answering the hecklers from the ring itself. When the event was over, the wrestlers interacted with the fans. The ego was left at the door. They knew they did this for the people in the seats, chanting or cursing their names.They knew they brought the two hours of magic to the wrestling fans. They were happy and honored to do it.
KCXW has several events planned throughout the year. The next one will be Sunday Night Takeover II on August 14th at 6:00 pm at the Alamo Drafthouse Takeover III is slotted for September 18, 6:00 pm, also at Alamo Drafthouse. You can learn more about the org from their website by clicking here
