Since 2013 we have produced 510 videos which are available to all on YouTube. This is a good opportunity to thank Promoter Chris Blackheart for his trust and support.

Our most popular video is the debut match of female wrestler Madame Butterfly in Attleboro, MA USA on 5 February 2017.  114,869 views so far, which for a niche like ours is a massive number. We hope to see this woman in New England again very soon.


The Art of Wrestling – Larry Zbyszko


, ,

Visionary independent wrestler Colt Cabana interviews The Living Legend Larry Zbyszko on his “The Art of Wrestling” Podcast. Mr. Zbyszko is now 65 years old and reflects on his contribution to wrestling history as well as his intriguing philosophy and views on life.

As a blogger I’m sometimes asked to do Podcasts and shy away from them because most of them are just damn boring. Colt Cabana’s show is an exception and worth listening to every week.

New England Championship Wrestling

2017 Summer Series 

July 15, 2017
Americal Civic Center
Wakefield, MA USA

Promoter: Sheldon Goldberg
General Manager: Paul Richard
Ring Announcer: Kevin Castro
Referees: Jack Hill, Eugene Scott

1. The Stacked Deck (Chris Cruise & Mike Montero) v. The Heavy Hitters (Frank Champion and Shay Cash). W – The Heavy Hitters

The Hitters had issued an open challenge that was answered by Montero & Cruise. It was an all Southern New England match. Montero and Cruise had the big men off-balance for most of the match but eventually the impact of Frank Champion’s size was the determining factor. Champion power slams Montero followed by a pin.

2. Television Championship Tournament 1: Richard Holliday (with Big Jym Anderson) v. Sensational Scott Levesque. – Double DQ

Beau Douglas took the mic pre-match and made the case for his displeasure at the tournament awarding the title that he never lost but was forced to vacate due to injury. He has been cleared to wrestle for a year yet the office has not given him a shot. Holliday and his goon came in and started shooting off their mouths about Holliday carrying the company and some alleged marketing scheme. They backed The Living Legend into a corner and showed him extreme disrespect.

Scott ambushed Holliday and Big Jym (who betrayed him while under his employ) with a chair. Referee Hill called a double disqualification and Mr. Castro announced that Levesque and Holliday were no longer eligible for the Television Title Tournament. Bummer.

3. WWW Triple Threat: Isana v. Jawsolyn v. Amanda Fox.  W – Jawsolyn

This was the NECW debut of the amazing Amanda Fox. She was by far the most skilled wrestler in this contest. Ms. Fox generously aided Jawsolyn of Team Sea Stars in countering the aggressive Isana. In the end Isana pinned Jawsolyn with feet on the ropes unseen by the referee so it was completely fair.

4. Cortez Castro v. Slyck Wagner Brown. W – Brown

Cortez Castro is known to all of us from his work at Lucha Underground. The office brought in a talent worthy of Mr. Brown. This match went outside the ring early, as Mr. Castro Pearl Harbored SWB while he was being announced. Both men pummelled each other in the seats without mercy. After what was a wrestling clinic for the fans, Brown put Castro away with his trademark Moonsault off the top rope.

5. Kid Curry v. R.I.O.T. Kellan Thomas. W –  Curry

Former Champion Kellan Thomas returns to NECW after many years away to face a new kid on the rise. Curry showed some serious mat wrestling as well as aerial skills. He gave the veteran a hard time, though Thomas is as good as ever. Curry somehow survived a Thomas Pile Driver. He finished R.I.O.T. with a German Suplex and a backwards pin.

6. Heavyweight Championship: “Pure Talent” Chris Escobar v. Todo Loco. W – Todo Loco & Sensational Scott Levesque

There was a mysterious delay after the supposed start of this match. Beau Douglas took advantage of the vacuum and continued his speech about an office conspiracy to keep him out of title contention. The fans largely agreed with him, vocally supporting his assertion.  When Todo Loco finally entered the ring there was no Escobar. Mr. Castro took a call from The Champion who said that Todo Loco was not worthy of a title shot and that Escobar was not even in the building (Todo Loco was never defeated for the title – he had to surrender it due to injury). Mr. Richard went into the ring and announced that Escobar was stripped of his title for non-defense. He attempted to present Todo Loco with the belt but the warrior refused, asking for an opponent.

Holliday and Anderson entered and tried to capitalize but they were not expecting Scott Levesque to appear. An impromptu tag team match ensued. Levesque was a real factor, not shying away from a test of strength against Big Jym, and using a chair to incapacitate Holliday. Todo Loco got Big Jym to submit to a nasty choke hold.

7.Television Championship Tournament 2: “The Funny Man” Devin Blaze v. Kris Pyro. W – Pyro – New Television Champion

Devin Blaze and Kris Pyro are members of two formidable tag teams, The Minutemen, and Da Hoodz respectively. They are also intense singles competitors. Blaze came very close to winning this title. He and Pyro were well-matched. Blaze held the edge throughout but it was Pyro who prevailed, diving off the top rope to pin The Funny Man.

Showcase Pro Wrestling
July 8, 2017
Whaling City Festival
New Bedford, MA USA

Ring Announcer: Sgt. Muldoon
Referees: Zack Belair, Kyle Rocha
Promoter: Chris Blackheart
Commissioner: Mr. Frank Rocha

Professor’s Note: We had been away from SPW for a long time, over a month-and-a-half due to travel. The company has been going strong with outdoor shows all over the place. This show was part of a three-day series. The matches below were part of two performances. We arrived on time for the first half but festivals take some of the control from promoters so they had to start earlier than planned. We missed the first 3 matches. Sorry fans.

New Bedford continues to be the home of some of the top New England wrestlers. Many were on the card, and a whole lot more were seen around the backstage area. We had the honor of meeting Mr. Don Vega’s father who travels with him around the country. A very nice man and quite the font of wrestling knowledge.

Match videos will be available after 10:00 p.m EST July 11 at our YouTube channel.

Match 1. Buck Nasty v. Hugo Brito. W – Buck Nasty

It’s not always fun being a rookie at the SPW Training School. Hugo once again paid his dues in pain and suffering at the hands of a brutal veteran. Mr. Nasty toyed with the kid, who got in some good forearm shots, before finishing him when it got too hot in the ring.

Match 2. Da Hoodz (Davey Cash & Kris Pyro) v. Sensational Scott Levesque & Mike Montero. W – Da Hoodz

Multiple legends in one match. We didn’t know who to support. Da Hoodz double team Montero (not sure what to call the move, check out the tape on YouTube), Pyro pins Montero.

The Spirit Squad Confront Mr. Don Vega & Cargill Vinton

Brian Partington was introduced in the ring and we expected him to have a match. Instead Cargill Vinton came out, shortly joined by Mr. Vega. They proceeded to humiliate the diminutive wrestler. Kenny and Mikey from The Spirit Squad entered the scene and rescued Mr. Partington. They challenged the Champions to a match later that day.

Match 3. Cruisin’ Chris Cruise (with Amanda Fox) v. Kris Pyro. W – Pyro

Match of the day. Chris Cruise continues to impress. He went toe-to-toe with Pantheon member Pyro. Fox was a factor, at one point whaling on Pyro in the ropes while the ref was distracted. Unfortunately for us she used the back of our shirt to wipe off the sweat from her hands. Gross. Ringside access has its downside at times.

Pyro escapes a torture rack and rolls up Cruise for the pin.

Match 4.  Diabolical Scott Ledeur (with Annabel) v. Chris Matrix. W – Ledeur

The rivalry that spans the ages. Ledeur found a way to win this time. He used one of his masks to bonk Matrix in the head. While technically illegal, in our opinion it was fair cheating because the referee didn’t see it. Both men put on a wrestling clinic for the festival crowd.

Match 5. Beau Douglas v. Makua. W – Makua

The Living Legend objected loudly to the fragrance emanating from the crowd. The New Bedford fans were not pleased. Mr. Douglas dominated as expected despite the Warrior managing to pull his shirt over his head for some nasty chops. Makua got lucky and did a top rope splash while Mr. Douglas was catching his breath on the canvas. Pin.

Match 6. Triple Threat: Superstar Shawn Candido v. Sensational Scott Levesque v. Davey Cash. W – Candido

Again, three legends in one ring. Candido and Levesque tried working together but it lasted about 3 minutes. All three men were fairly equal until The Superstar took advantage of Cash’s narrow escape from a Levesque hold, stomped the back of his head and pinned him.

Match 7. The Spirit Squad (Kenny, Mikey, and Brian Partington) v. Mr. Don Vega & Cargill Vinton. W – Vega & Vinton

We got what we wanted. Once in a while former WWE stars blow into town and everyone expects them to crush the independent wrestlers, who, as in this case, are better than the more known stars, they just didn’t get their break to ride the WWE wave for what is usually a very short time. Vega and Vinton dominated and used brain power to trick The Squad into allowing them to exploit their third man (Partington – How is 3 on 2 fair?) for a decisive pin by Cargill. We won’t explain the whole setup. You should watch the video on Tuesday. Mr. Vega is a God. Cargill Vinton deserves the SPW Heavyweight title. No disrespect to The Squad. They were just outclassed.

Sensational Scott Levesque is the premiere wrestler in New England. He’s a member of our Pantheon. When the question is proffered “Who’s The Man?” the automatic answer of any New England Wrestling fan is inevitably Scott Levesque. 

Mr. Levesque has beaten them all and held belts all over the place. He’s a veteran, but we can’t help but think that the best is yet to come for “The Rick Flair of New England”.

Happy Independence Day

We wish all of our fellow American Citizens a happy and healthy Independence Day. Take some time with those you love and remember why we celebrate this day. Our Founding Fathers sacrificed everything to give us a chance to live as free citizens. Let’s show them that we deserve it.

An American Renaissance is underway. Thank God for the U.S.A.
