Kenny Steele debuted for the Bedford, Texas based Metroplex Wrestling (MPX) on November 13, 2010 at MPX Consequences 2010. MPX had been running shows since only April of that year up to this point. At the time Steele was only 20 years-old and arguably the most promising young performer who had wrestled for MPX. He would go on to help establish the MPX Prospects Championship, a midcard title up and comers in the promotion like Li Fang, Kristopher Haiden and Frankie Fisher would capture. Before all that though he had to get past Ben Wylde.
Before the bout Steele snatches the microphone from the ring announcer and shouts, “Beat it, get out of here!” Steele then cuts a heel promo talking about all he has accomplished and what he plans to do in MPX. Wylde confronts him, but soon finds himself at a disadvantage when Steele targets the babyface’s left leg.
Gorilla Moonson would get a kick out of Wylde because of the shots to the breadbasket he gives Steele when trying to make his comeback. Steele quiets him down with a knee to the face and soon enough threatens to break his leg. Instead of getting his leg broken Wylde makes a comeback with some very slow clotheslines. He’s not exactly Stan Hansen. However, Wylde is still selling that leg injury so it all fits the story of the match.
For the finish Steele performs Nova’s old kryptonite krunch move and it is all over.
