The Soundboards both quit leaving the show without the traditional music. As Sergeant Muldoon said, what counts is the wrestlers wrestling. And they did. Showcase is on a continuous improvement curve that shows. Mr. Blackheart has a talent for surprising the fans with newcomers, stars from far afield, and favorites returning after long absences. Mr. Vega (and the other trainers) have the product running at a high level. Tonight was a high-energy example for a full house.
Match 1. Chris Matrix v. Five Star Jace. W – Matrix
Matrix and Jace were well matched in size and skill. Mr. Matrix started the match by getting into the man from Springfield’s head by sitting in the crowd and asking for a time out. He had to get a bit mean by hitting Jace in the crotch and standing on his head in the corner. Matrix prevailed by capitalizing on a Jace missed spot for the roll up and pin.

Tequila Rose & Alicia Muldoon Talk Smack
Tequila Rose made her debut at SPW with an in-ring interview with Sergeant Muldoon. Alicia Muldoon was not pleased with this and entered the ring and made disparaging remarks about her rival, at one point accusing her of having extensions (obviously not true). The women almost came to blows. Mr. Cena approved a match for later in the evening.

Match 2. Buck Nasty v. Big Dog Butler. Double DQ
A rematch of giants from last night in Woonsocket with the same result. Nasty focused on the hams of Butler in an attempt to keep the taller wrestler on the ground. This almost worked but he couldn’t quite put him out. The combatants got carried away and tossed Referee Rocha out of the ring which resulted in a double disqualification. Again.

Match 3. Sons of Liberty Championship: “The Prize” Alec Price (C) v. Heck Dynamite. W – Price
This was Dynamite’s first time at Showcase so we are not sure why he was granted a title shot. Nevertheless, he showed agility and skill and gave the arrogant punk champion a run for his money. After The Prize had enough of the upstart he masterfully rolled him up for the pin. Some fans were whining about grabbing of tights but we saw nothing that did not fall under the doctrine of fair cheating. Price keeps his title to the dismay of the newcomer.

Nick Night Addresses The Fans
Mr. Night won The Woonsocket Rumble Friday night under the guise of Zero. He is now in a position to cash in a title shot of his choosing at any time. He told the story of his long absence and recovery from an ACL injury. He bemoaned the fact that not one wrestler or person from the office called him during that period. His only support was from fans and that is with whom he feels a connection at this point. Night is going to ponder his next move and announce it in Taunton on 13 October.

Match 4. Heavyweight Championship: Soldier of God Ronnie Ribs (C) v. Carlos Esteban (with Ruby Bastein). W – Ribs
In a rematch from last night in Woonsocket, Esteban attempts once again to best The Champ. He punished Ribs severely and took a lot of punishment himself. Partners Romano and Levesque couldn’t help themselves and started ringside interference to no avail. Ribs applies the DDT and Esteban was done. Two bites at the apple. Get to the back of the line Carlos. Commissioner Cena after the match closed a bit of unfinished business and informed Mr. Ribs that he would have to face Noriega for a rematch in Taunton on 13 October.

Match 5. Tequila Rose v. Alisha Muldoon. W – Muldoon
Ms. Muldoon was angry at the new female competition in SPW. Tequila Rose has traveled the world as a wrestler and there appears to be some envy on Alicia’s part. She and Ms. Rose went at it in a short match which was ended inexplicably when Rose did not counter a pin after a Muldoon spear. She should not have capitulated that early. We hope there’s a rematch soon.

Match 6: Tag Team Title Match: The Bitter Club (Sensational Scott Levesque & Buddy Romano (C) with Ruby Bastein & Carlos Esteban) v. Mr. Don Vega & Cargill Vinton. W – Vega & Vinton (New Champions)
Referee Roberts lost patience with the annoying antics of Ruby Bastein and ejected him from the room. Mr. Vega ran backstage after Ruby, apparently to mete out some punishment to the hapless youth. Mr. Levesque capitalized on his absence and stomped Vinton into a stupor. He and Carlos smashed Vinton on his back then dragged Buddy over his prostrate body for a pin. Somehow Vinton revived as the returned Roberts neared a 3 count. Vega came back and pinned Buddy for a definitive win. For some reason Vega and Vinton were upset with Referee Roberts for not giving them a 3 count on one of their earlier falls so they disgraced themselves by KO’ing the official after the match ended. In our opinion Mr. Cena should suspend or fine them for this low act.
