The run up to Marchiversary XIII on March 23rd in Taunton couldn’t have been more action packed. Full house, the debut of Kongo. Young guy on the rise David Dejesus, HD3 gets rough with The Professor and SPW Management, Buddy’s Gold Bond stunt backfires horribly, Ladders, Handcuffs, Baseball Bats, Beatings, and the imminent arrival of The Azorean Playboy.
Match 1. “The Ace” Mike Montero v. “The Master of Mayhem” Tommy Mack. W – Mack
Montero didn’t quite know what to do with Mack. His usual flying drop kicks and sneaky maneuvers had little effect. Mike decided to introduce a ladder from backstage. Referee Rocha was having none of it. While Montero argued for his ladder stunt, Mack speared and pinned him cleanly.
Match 2. Five Star Jace v. “The Latin Sensation” David Dejesus. W – Jace
Veteran Jace displayed dismay that he was paired with a youngster. His arrogance was soon put to the test by the talented Dejesus. In the end, Jace’s seasoning prevailed as he dropped David on his head followed by the pin. Honest Abe was conspicuous by his absence. We wonder where he is. That guy is trouble.
HD3 Addresses The Taunton Fans, Wrestlers, and Management
HD3 is not a fan of Taunton, SPW Management, Tony Atlas, or The Professor. He ordered us into the ring so we could focus our camera on his message. He has taken on a new client, SPW Heavyweight Champion Noriega. He sent Noriega to Puerto Rico to train and to find out why Tony Atlas is (in his words) “a coward”. Noriega will face Tony Atlas at Marchiversary XII. HD3 vows to wear Mr. Atlas’ WWE HOF ring after Marchiversary.
Match 3. Chris Matrix v. Carlos Esteban. W – Matrix
Matrix beat the tar out of Esteban. There’s no other way to look at it. Of course Bitter Club Leader Buddy Romano had to intervene. He got on the apron and attempted to throw powder in Matrix’ face. Matrix ducked and the powder (smelly Gold Bond) blinded Carlos. Matrix KO’d Buddy who spent some time on the floor. Matrix power slammed Carlos and a revived (he had been hit in the head by Carlos’ feet while he was in a Matrix military press) Referee Warren called the three count. Buddy costs Carlos the second match in a row. Ouch.
Then annoying Mike Montero came out and climbed his ladder, took the mic and issued a challenge to both men for the Sons of Liberty Championship at Marchiversary. The office has planned a ladder match with multiple participants including the champion, Mike McCarthy (more on that to come in the next few weeks).
We predict that Matrix takes The Sons of Liberty Championship on March 23rd.
Match 4. “The Wild Man” Kongo v. “The All American” Brandino Davis. W – Kongo
Davis has been on a roll in SPW lately. Until tonight. Veteran Kongo made his debut at Showcase and cleaned the mat with Davis. Brandino was able to mount some offense but he could not knock the giant down, or beat him in the end. Kongo brings Davis down on his head in a modified Pile Driver.
Match 5: Cold Hard Cash (Highlight Davey Cash & Shay Cash) v. Superstar Shawn Candido & Cargill Vinton. W – Cold Hard Cash
David Cash calls himself The King of New England and points out that he is the longest active wrestler on the scene. We believe he is justified in his claims. He has a special way of antagonizing a room full of fans.
Mr. Candido entered alone without his scheduled partner, Mr. Don Vega. He accused CHC of doing something to Mr. Vega. Unexpectedly Cargill Vinton (who is not medically cleared to wrestle) joined The Superstar and the match was on. Unfortunately for the good guys, David Cash managed to manacle Vinton to a ring post and he and Shay whaled on Candido. Cold Hard Cash used baseball bats and an unidentified metal object pulled from David’s trunks to punish Candido. Many minutes of pain went by before Vinton got loose when Candido extricated the key from Cash’s pocket. While Cargill and Shay were stunned on the floor, David knocked Candido out with what looked like a chain and pinned him for the win.
While Cold Hard Cash were bragging on mic about themselves, Mr. Vega appeared from nowhere and he and Cargill beat the New Bedford men mercilessly with their own bats. They fled the ring and tried unsuccessfully to re-enter and engage the tag team champions. It ended in a scrum that made its way back stage. Battle set for Marchiversary XIII on March 23rd.
