Recent actions by President Jordan Smiley in KCXW matches involving former Kansas City Champion "Nature's Fury" J.C. Thunder have put him at odds with the KCXW Board of Xcellence. This friction came to a head after KCXW: Last Stand, when President Smiley interfered in the match between J.C. Thunder and “Kingpin” Angel Medina, costing Medina the match. It has been reported that a board meeting took place after Last Stand, and President Smiley was chastised by the rest of the Board of Xcellence for overstepping his bounds. Despite President Smiley’s protestations, the Board decided in the meeting that J.C. Thunder’s next match - a title shot against current Kansas City Champion The Marksman at KCXW: Destiny – will include a guest referee.
Now, the Board of Xcellence officially announces their choice for guest referee is “Kingpin” Angel Medina himself.
The Board of Xcellence no doubt expects Medina to ensure that Thunder and The Marksman - big men with oversized tempers – have a fair fight. Whether the Board’s decision will also give Medina the chance at redemption at President Smiley’s expense remains to be seen.
Tickets are still available for KCXW: Destiny on October 1st at Soccer Nation!
