Welcome to the new web page covering all things School of Morton! Our first article will cover what happened on our fourth anniversary at the Paul Morton Cup.
SOM Youth Championship Match: Charlie Brown defeated Jungle Boy and Buck Wild to become the new SOM Youth Champion. After the match, Charlie Brown was unmasked to reveal former SOM Youth Champion Jake "Hound Dog" Allen. It was then revealed that Allen's suspension had been lifted and he will now return to action at the SOM.
Draco, Barrett Stout, and Kaldr w/Celaeno the Dark defeated East Tennessee Champion Hank "The Machine" Miller and the Medics. In a continuation of their ongoing rivalry, Draco defeated Hank Miller by illegally pulling his tights during a roll-up to gain more leverage. No matter the circumstances, after picking up a win over the current East Tennessee Champion, Draco will surely receive another shot at the title in the future.
X Division Champion BTSG and The Ryan Price fought to a no contest. After winning the X Division Championship due to the controversial restarting of a match last week in Johnson City, The Ryan Price has managed to hold onto the X Division Title in his first defense. However, this match did not end in pinfall or submission. The tempers of both men proved to be too much, which resulted in a ringside brawl that had to be broken up by Price's faction, the EGC 2.0, and RT3 and JC Adams. It is unclear as of now whether or not BTSG will be granted a remach
The EGC 2.0 (Sir Richard Doolee and Sir Brian Jeffries) w/Sir Derrick Williams defeated RT3 and JC Adams to become the new East Tennessee Tag Team Champions. In another controversial decision, the EGC 2.0 captured the East Tennessee Tag Team Titles. Commissioner Branham, who was at ringside to see the match, has stated that he feels that RT3 and JC Adams were cheated. He has already announced a rematch on June 5th at the Virginia-Kentucky Fair in Wise, VA.
Maverick won the 4th annual Paul Morton Cup. The final of the 28 men who entered the gauntlet-style battle royal, Maverick, won the Paul Morton Cup by last eliminating Luscious Lawrence, who was incredibly able to last all the way to the end of the match after entering in the number one position. The match featured the rest of the SOM roster (even SOM backstage interviewer Corky McCorkle). In being presented with the Paul Morton Cup trophy, he was awarded the vacant SOM Heavyweight Championship. According to Commissioner Branham, Luscious Lawrence has been named the number one contender to Maverick's title based on his stand-out performance in the Cup.
