This was the Professor’s first Lucky Pro show and thus many of the wrestlers were unknown to him. There was probably between 150 and 200 people in a big Elks Hall which is an impressive draw for a local Indy. The Professor thinks that the central location definitely helped. The Professor saw some familiar faces in the crowd such as HOF member Rich Palladino. He got to shake hands with Robbie The Giant, Jim Burgoyne, Justin Credible, and Nikki Valentine. All in all, a decent show. This promotion is doing great for only 2 years in business. The Professor needs to see more Lucky Pro Wrestling.
1. “All Good” Anthony Green vs. “Wildcard Billy King” W – Green
Not a bad starting contest between two journeymen. Green gets pin.
2. “Shady” Shay Cash vs. Tomahawk. W – Tomahawk
Lots of chops as always from Tomahawk (The Professor has seen him in Chaotic). This time Tomahawk entered the ring with a foam Hatchet instead of the real one he usually uses. These were subsequently sold at the intermission. Cash tried to do a chop and ended up smashing his hand on the ring post. Tomahawk dropped Cash on his head for the pin.
LPW President Jim Burgoyne addressed the crowd from the ring and was interrupted by Brian Cairo (fired with a broken hip and suspicious cane) with his Canadian Lawyer Charles E. Blanchette Esq. Mr. Burgoyne attempted to kick Mr. Cairo out but Attorney Blanchette produced papers that he claimed show Cairo has a 2-year contact with a no fire clause. Mr. Cairo announced he is suing Mr. Burgoyne for his company. He is going to reestablish the “High Society” faction. (This is new to the Professor so no comment here).
3. Todd Sople vs. Nick Westgate – W – Sople
There is probably a 1.5 foot height difference between these mismatched competitors. Both put on a good match with some comic antics. Sople gets the pin on his diminutive opponent.
4. Donovan Dijack vs. Chris James & Tyler Sexton. Handicap Match. W – Dijack
There was little doubt from the second the competitors entered the room where this one was going. James was afraid to even enter the ring. Sexton managed a few good arial maneuvers that knocked Dijack around a bit but only took Dijack about 5 minutes to destroy both jobbers and get the pin.
Mr. Dijack started shooting off his big mouth with the usual “This is what greatness looks like”, “Feast Your Eyes”, blah blah blah. The Professor got in a good “This is what steroids look like!” but it didn’t get a direct reaction from the giant Dijack. Dijack called for a competitor in his class and out came the legendary Justin Credible to take up the challenge and school the beginner.
5. Donovan Dijack vs. Justin Credible. Hardcore Match. W – Dijack
Mr. Credible is not exactly in the shape he was in in the old ECW days. Nevertheless he came at Dijack with a trash can to the head, a chair dolly in the legs, smashed him on a table, and finally a ladder. Ultimately, despite the initial shock of the beating, the younger Dijack prevailed. He beat Justin Credible on the back severely, leaving him incapacitated at the end. Perhaps Mr. Dijack is inevitable. We’ll see. The Professor shook hands with Mr. Credible as he left the ring which was an honor. Dijack is lucky that someone of the stature of Justin Credible was willing to help him get over.

6. “The Devil’s Reject” Brandon Webb vs. Jason Blade vs. Anthony Stone. Triple Threat Match. W – Blade
This was an incredible match. All 3 men are in top condition and put in a heck of an energetic show. Lots of arial stuff, complex scientific moves and holds. Stone dove over the top rope onto Blade who was outside the ring at one point. Mr. Blade was in much better shape than when the Professor saw him at an PWF show in Taunton last summer. Mr. Webb performed as well as he did against Dan Terry in SPW recently. The Professor had never seen Anthony Stone. Very impressive. The Professor is going to see if he can encourage SPW to bring in Mr. Stone. He was the best athlete of the show. Sneaky Blade ends up with the pin on Stone after Mr. Cairo interfered by hitting Stone in the stomach with his dubious cane.
7. Nikki Valentine, “The Goddess of Beauty” Ramona Romano, Mike Pavia vs. Davienne,Vernon Vicallo , Cam Zagami in Six Person Intergender Tag Match – W -Davienne, Vicallo, Zagami
Mass mayhem. The participants did not shy away from some real male vs. female direct competition. Mr./Ms. Romano looks better with the wig on. All six competitors gave a good effort and this went on for awhile. In the end Davienne pinned Mr./Ms. Romano.
8. Brian Fury v. Vinny Marseglia. W – Fury
For some weird reason Mr. Marseglia approached the Professor, who was in the front row, and tweaked his Buddy Holly glasses. Not sure why. The crowd was clearly with Mr. Fury and taunted Mr. Marseglia mercilessly about his tattoos. Both athletes are in top form and are in the Professor’s opinion at the top of the food chain in New England Independent Wrestling (Fury holds the Chaotic Heavyweight Belt). They gave it their all with brutality, air, scientific, and crowd interaction elements. They took the action out of the ring and all over the room including up on the stage where Mr. Fury body slammed Mr. Marseglia. Fury brought the fans into the action by letting them slap Marseglia. Some dumb marks did it really hard like idiots, though Mr. Marseglia took it like a man. We could all see it coming with crowd momentum on his side, Fury gets the pin.
