Former Huntington man bringing ‘old friend’ back to town Saturday for fun, entertainment

When Kasey Geyer looks in the mirror these days, he sees an old friend staring back.

That old friend is KC Thunder – the identity Geyer assumed for years as a professional wrestler. His return can only mean one thing: Geyer is getting back in the ring.

And not just any ring. Geyer will be climbing back into one in Huntington, his hometown. The ring will be at the Police Athletic League Club for “Christmas Clash 2016,” a pro wrestling event presented by W.A.R. Wrestling.
