Exclusive: Kevin Thorn Explains Talking Monty Brown Out Of Retirement For May The 4th Be With You Show

Monty Brown hasn't been seen in the wrestling world for over a decade, but a great cause on May 4 has him re-emerging.

A fellow former WWECW name in Kevin Fertig (also known as Kevin Thorn) is promoting "May The 4th" be with you this weekend in Noblesville, Indiana, to benefit Brady Destroys Cancer -- in an effort to help 6th Grader Brady Armstrong and his family's battle with the disease.

Monty Brown was all too happy to make an appearance, Fertig told Fightful. 

"Monty's been a friend of mine for a long time. Even after he left WWE we'd reach out and talk a bit. Every couple of months ago, we'd stay in touch. Monty's (got some friends and family) that play on our football team. When all of this, I talked to my friend Kevin Myers, who is close with Monty and said 'let's get him on this, let's get him out of retirement, one day only.' It's a special moment. Leading into (WrestleMania 23), we were tied at the hip. Some of the coolest memories ever and it made sense to have him a part of this with me to raise money for this event," said Fertig.

Monty Brown has been one of the most "what if?" wrestlers in recent memory, and doesn't typically make wrestling appearances. However, once Fertig let Brown know what it was for, it didn't take much convincing.

"As soon as I told him what it was for, (no resistance). We've been looking for an excuse to get him down here. I want him to see my son, Kevin Myers wants him to hang out with his. It all worked out, he said 'let's do it, let's figure it out.' He came with bells on, believe it or not," said Fertig.

In addition to Brown and Fertig, Al Snow, Hardcore Holly, James Storm and others are set for the show.
