NWL KC: Gil Rogers vs. Cam Jackson (May 27, 2017) [Episode 21]

Can the old guy show the frat boys how it’s done?

I don’t know if this is Cam Jackson’s pro debut, but it’s definitely his NWL debut. He’s accompanied by two unnamed members of Alpha Omega, a group Cam calls “the first and only black fraternity in professional wrestling.” He does a dance to show the crowd that he knows rhythm and they don’t.

Gil Rogers is, of course, still winless in the NWL, and you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that that doesn’t change here. There’s a little dance competition at the start, followed by Gil showing Jackson up most of the match. Jackson is cocky, but Gil is far more experienced and seems to have an answer for almost everything Cam does. Some of their exchanges are a bit awkward, probably due to Jackson’s inexperience. Give him time.

Sadly for Gil, he once again gets taken advantage of by his less scrupulous opponent. After giving an airplane spin and falling out of the ring from his own dizziness, Gil tries to come back in with a sunset flip, but Cam sits down and grabs the ropes. His frat brothers assist him by grabbing his arms, and Gil can’t kick out.

Winner – Cam Jackson

Rating – OK

This probably would’ve made it to “Good” if the moves had all been hit well. I liked the story and it didn’t overstay its welcome. We’ll see how Jackson develops. We’ll also see how much longer Gil’s losing streak goes before he finally overcomes. Or snaps…
