New Prize Announced for KC’s Finest
The big news from the most recent offering of KC’s Finest Pro Wrestling was that Promoter Marco Epstein is creating a new championship, exclusively for tag teams.
At the conclusion of the last show Epstein offered an invitation to any duo that wanted to submit an application to compete in his wrestling organization. This announcement came after a full show of great wrestling action, highlighted by another successful title defense from Jeff King, the Pride of Kansas City.
King absorbed quite a bit of punishment from his challenger, Dasher Hatfield, but King’s patience paid off as Hatfield eventually had a miscue. King was able to capitalize and retain the titles.
“Dasher Hatfield was a game competitor, but he had to know that no matter how much he threw at me, I was still going to win,” said King. “I’m going to be the Pride of Kansas City forever. That’s just the way it is.
Another development on the show was the escalation in the rivalry between the Locals In Favor of Prohibition and The Associates. Representatives from both factions faced off in the first match of the show and the result was brutal. The Associates took no prisoners and made an example of what happens when the interests they represent are crossed as they left Dick Lahart beaten and battered.
Other winners from the show included Mary Elizabeth Monroe, Bill Taylor, Marion Fontaine, The Good Doctors and The Moonshin’ Men from Applacia.

KC’S FINEST PRO WRESTLING CIRCA 1920’s SHOW 4 KANSAS CITY CLUB KANSAS CITY, MO
(Promoter ‘Big Daddy’ Marco Epstein is in the center of the ring. He is surrounded by several men including The Moonshin’ Men of Appalachia (Chuck Taylor & Jock Samson), The Jackson County Jeepers (Clean & Jerk), The Good Doctors (Dr. Jacob Omen & Dr. Sam Sheppard), The Upper Class (Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Logan Easton Laroux), Foreign Legion (Martin Scurll & Robert Mailett), Isaias Velasquez & Craig Mitchell, Robert Orton, Sr. & Robert Orton, Jr. and Maurice & Paul Vachon.)
Epstein: Welcome to Kansas City’s Finest, the best pro wrestling in the Midwest. I stand here in this very ring among some of the finest wrestling duos ever. They are here to compete and be known as KC’S FINEST TAG TEAM.
(Epstein introduces each team, all of whom receive welcoming applause from the ever growing crowd of spectators. As he concludes his introductions he is interrupted by the Locals In Favor of Prohibition. Conspicuous by his absence from the group is Dick J. Lahart.)
Hugo Lexington: Excuse me sir, if I may have a moment of your time. I don’t wish to be a bother, but it seems to me that you have failed to include the best team competing in KC’s Finest in this little tournament of yours.
Epstein: Oh is that so?
Lexington: But, of course. Gavin Volstead and Cammeron Sheppard have taken on all comers and have yet to be defeated. It is my firm belief that if they are excluded from this opportunity it is a huge travesty of justice.
Epstein: Although I disagree with your point of view, I will admit your team has yet to summer a clean loss. Because of this I am willing to give your team the opportunity an opportunity to enter this tournament, buy only if one of these eight teams allow it.
(Epstein addresses the teams in the ring.)
Do any of you want to put your spot in this tournament on the line and be the first team to prove whether or not you belong here by taking on this kvetch’s team?
(Maurice & Paul Vachon quickly step forward.)
Gentlemen, I whole heartedly respect your eagerness and confidence.
(Epstein and the other teams exit the ring as the Vachons remain and The Locals climb to the ring apron.)
Locals In Favor of Prohibition (Gavin Q. Volstead & Cammeron S. Sheppard) w/Hugo Lexington vs. Maurice & Paul Vachon This match didn’t last very long because as Volstead and Paul were battling, Paul came off the ropes only to be tripped up by Lexington. As Paul dropped to a knee as result from Lexington’s interference he was knocked silly by the KICK BACK from Volstead. Sheppard kept Maurice out of the ring Volstead pinned Paul.
Gregory Iron vs. Nicolas Valentino Iron dominated this match, but when the action spilled out of the ring Valentino gained a quick advantage with an eye poke. Iron battled back, but both men lost track of the referee’s count and were counted out.
Thunderkitty vs. ‘Felino de Hierro’ Louis Lyndon After Lyndon lost to Mary Elizabeth Monroe on the last show, Thunderkitty quickly requested a match against him. Lyndon had Thunderkitty’s head spinning early with several high flying maneuvers. Thunderkitty battled back and locked Lyndon in a SLEEPER, which Lyndon was able to quickly break. The match continued back and forth until Thunderkitty caught Lyndon with a DDT. Lyndon quickly rolled out of the ring and looked very woozy, even dropping to a knee. Thunderkitty came after Lyndon and Lyndon was barely able to get his hands up to defend himself. The ref came out of the ring and checked on Lyndon. The ref quickly called for the bell and declared Lyndon unable to continue. The ref raised Thunderkitty’s arm in victory as Dr. Jacob Omen checked on Lyndon. Lyndon was in pretty bad shape as he was assisted to the back.
Marion Fontaine vs. Biff Busick w/Bruno ‘Baby Face’ Moretti & Niles ‘Sozio’ Young Fontaine gave Busick all he could handle, but Busick beat Fontaine with a HALF AND HALF SUPLEX.
‘Big’ Sue Jackson vs. Mary Elizabeth Monroe After the last show Jackson was telling everyone that would listen how pathetic it was that Louis Lyndon was defeated by a weak, lowly woman. Monroe eventually grew tired of Jackson berating both her and Lyndon and challenged him to a match. Jackson started the match by telling the crowd how weak Lyndon was by not only being beaten by Monroe, but now by Thunderkitty. Monroe had enough, walked right up to Jackson and punched him square in the nose. Jackson was dazed as his nose swelled slightly and his eyes began to water. Monroe capitalized on the opening and showed her strength by quickly delivering a fall away slam. The move looked a little awkward and Jackson fell hard on his shoulder. Monroe continued her assault and as Jackson remained dazed delivered a fine looking flying body press and pinned Jackson. The crowd was in a slight bit of shock as Monroe celebrated her victory, but quickly came around, politely applauding the talented female. Jackson, who has a slight amount of blood coming from his nose, regained his feet, looking a little embarrassed. He sheepishly walked over to Monroe and extended his hand. Monroe was a little hesitant to take his hand, but eventually did, shaking hands with Jackson. Jackson raised Monroe’s hand … then leveled her with a clothesline. The crowd booed vociferously as Jackson followed up with the CLOSE SHAVE and left Monroe lying in the ring.
Dasher Hatfield vs. ‘Burly’ Bill Taylor Hatfield was all over Taylor early, but Hatfield took too long going to the top turnbuckle and was caught by Taylor, who delivered a superplex. Taylor followed up with a SIDE SLAM for the victory.
The Upper Class (Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Logan Easton Laroux) vs. Foreign Legion (Martin Scurll & Robert Mailett) This is the first match in the tournament to determine KC’S FINEST TAG TEAM. The Upper Class was very vocal about having to be in a match with “these dirty foreigners”. Scurll kept Mailett from rushing in and attacking his opponents, telling him to be smart. This was a brutal brawl from the opening bell. The action waged back and forth with both teams gaining multiple near falls. The end came when Friedman smashed Mailett’s skull with a steel chair outside the ring and did not phase the big man. Mailett just glared at Friedman as blood began to roll down Mailett’s face. A terrified Friedman sprinted from Mailett who trailed him all the way around the ring. Just as the ref reached the count of ten Friedman was able to roll back into the ring, beating the count and causing Mailett to be counted out. The Upper Class didn’t even wait to have their hands raised as the hastily retreated to the back.
PRIDE OF KANSAS CITY TITLE MATCH John Abraham Lincoln vs. PRIDE OF KANSAS CITY Jeff King After a brief, early, back and forth battle Lincoln gained the advantage, but King countered with a quick rollup to gain a near fall. Lincoln battled back and gained a near fall after a back flip splash off the top turnbuckle. From there Lincoln locked in and armbar and held King down to gain the pin and the title.
(Epstein enters the ring and presents Lincoln with the title. Epstein raises Lincoln’s arm and presents the new champion to the cheering crowd.)

New Champ Crowned, Locals Make Mark
The major news item out of the last offering from KC’S FINEST WRESTLING was the crowning a new KC’S FINEST WRESTLER.
John Abraham Lincoln unseated ‘Old Timer’ Jeff King in a spirited contest in which Lincoln demonstrated his athleticism. After King was unable to gain the fall with an early rollup, Lincoln battled back. Lincoln delivered a spectacular back flip splash from the top turnbuckle before pinning King with an armbar hold to gain the title.
“It is truly an honor to hold this title and be known as the best wrestler in Kansas City,” said Lincoln. “You have my word that I will be a fighting champion and face all comers, not just from Kansas City, but all over the Midwest.”
In other action the tournament to crown KC’S FINEST TAG TEAM began in earnest as the team of Gavin Q. Volstead & Cammeron S. Sheppard, representing the Locals In Favor of Prohibition, took issue with not being included in the eight teams competing. They were given an opportunity to compete in the tournament by defeating the Vachon brothers, Maurice and Paul, as the Vachons offered up their spot in the tournament if the Locals in Favor of Prohibition could defeat them, which they did.
Promoter Marco Epstein commented, “Contrary to popular opinion the team of Volstead and Sheppard was not deliberately left out of the tournament. They quite simply did not audition and therefore I was left to believe they were not interested in competing.”
“That is hogwash,” stated Hugo Lexington when hearing of Epstein’s comments. “Mr. Epstein has not seen favor in our group since opening this promotion. He has seen fit to keep us down and suppress our propaganda. Mark my words Mr. Epstein. You will have no choice but to allow us to speak when we prove that the Locals In Favor of Prohibition prove we are correct in our thinking that the abolition of alcohol is right and just and show that’s what fuels us to be KC’S FINEST TAG TEAM.”
Elsewhere on the show Mary Elizabeth Monroe once again showed her strength as a competitor by defeating another male wrestler in ‘Big’ Sue Jackson. After the match Jackson could be heard saying that this isn’t over and Monroe has no idea what she has started.
Other winners from the show were Thunderkitty, Biff Busick, ‘Burly’ Bill Taylor and The Upper Class, Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Logan Easton Laroux, who advanced in the KC’S BEST TAG TEAM tournament.
