SUSPENSION UPHELD KC FINEST WRESTLING SHUT DOWN
After thorough investigation by the Missouri State Athletic Commision the suspension of KC’s Finest Wrestling has been upheld. The wrestling organization was being investigated after a riot broke out at the end of their most recent event.
“The commission concluded that KC’S Finest is unable to provide suitable security for the well being of the spectators and until such a time they can prove otherwise, the suspension organization’s promoter’s license will be upheld,” stated Commissioner Harley Race.
“I am of course disappointed with the commission’s decision, but I do accept it and responsibility for what occurred at our last event,” said KC’S Finest Wrestling Promoter Marco Epstein.
It is unknown what will come of the organization and the wrestlers utilized, but Epstein hinted at an alternative to what he has been presenting.
“KC’S Finest is definitely down, but we are most certainly not out,” explained Epstein. “I have discussed different options with my financial backers and we believe we have found a reasonable alternative that I, my investors, and the wrestlers, can all be happy with.”

NEW PLAN FOR EPSTEIN
KC’s Finest Wrestling Promoter Marco Epstein was dealt quite a blow lately as the suspension of his promoter’s license was upheld. Epstein is down, but not out.
“I was definitely disappointed with the decision of the athletic commission, but what’s done is done,” commented Epstein. “It’s time to move on to bigger and better things.”
Bigger things are on the horizon indeed as Epstein announced he has convinced his investors to fund a ground breaking, cross country wrestling tour that will be like nothing that has been undertaken before.
“The paperwork is still being finalized, but shortly we will embark on a tour that has never been attempted before,” Epstein explained. “I have organized a troupe of wrestlers that will join me as we travel by train all across this great country, bringing top rate wrestling action to the masses.”
The first few events of this barnstorming tour have already been scheduled with Tulsa, Oklahoma, being the first stop.
“I have already secured a temporary promoter’s license and I’m really looking forward to our first event,” continued Epstein.
Although the events will mainly feature wrestlers from Epstein’s troupe, there will also be an opportunity for locals to compete as well.
“We will hold try outs in each region we visit to find the best local talent,” said Epstein. “If they prove to be talented enough they may also be allowed to join the troupe on a permanent basis.”

John Abraham Lincoln – Distant relative of the 16th President that bears a very striking resemblance to his namesake. An impressive physical specimen that is‘farm strong’ and has won many a bar fight. It’s these successes that have led him to try his hand at pro wrestling.

LOCAL TRY OUT WINNERS
Shane Douglas - One of six children whose father was killed in World War I. Still reeling from his father’s death, Douglas is looking for direction and is hoping Promoter Epstein sees fit for him to join his troupe of wrestlers, which Douglas hopes helps him find what he is looking for.
Robert Roop - Greco-Roman wrestler who was a favorite to compete at the 1920 Olympic Games until a freak training injury cut his dream short. Roop believes he can compete with the best in the world, but will take consolation of competing with the best in Epstein’s troupe.
Bradley Armstrong - Young man who grew up in a family of amateur wrestlers. His main goal is to compete and make his family proud.
Edward Gilbert - Smug, confident young man with what seems to be a ton of potential. It remains to be seen if his ego will prevent him from making in-roads with Epstein’s troupe.
Ted DiBiase & Steve Williams - Former college football teammates whose strength and athleticism impressed Epstein enough to give them a chance to compete with the wrestlers from his troupe.
Rag Time Express (Robert Gibson & Richard Morton) - The ladies love these two life long friends that spent a lot of their free time in Southern sporting houses as young men, where they became fans of a musical styling that seems to have become a waning interest in American culture. Gibson and Morton love the ladies … they love rag time … and now they’re learning to love wrestling.
Robert Fulton & Thomas Rogers - Another a couple of guys the ladies like to spend time with because of their good looks. Hopefully those looks don’t get messed up too badly when they step into the ring.

Judy Martin - Glamorous beauty pageant contestant, who is quite the athlete. Her athleticism impressed Epstein enough to allow her to compete against his troupe.
Leilani Kai - Best friend of Judy Martin, who also impressed Epstein with her athleticism. Epstein thought it was only right to give her the same chance as Martin.
