Northeast Championship Wrestling
Norwood Elks, Norwood, MA USA
November 28, 2014
“Wrestlefest X”

Ring Announcer: Dean “The Beast” Livsly

Referees: Redd Roche, Mike Dube, others unidentified

Technical Note: The pictures are not the greatest due to poor lighting in the Facility. The main light over the ring was out.

1. Derek Mathews & Dan Terry v. Anthony Green & Tomahawk.  W – Green & Tomahawk

The Fittest Man in The World teamed with Not The Fittest Man in The World. They did some excellent preening and quality cheating.  Terry and Andrews at one point had Green on the second rope with two knees bearing both men’s considerable weight. Andrews is a better technical wrestler and can mete out more punishment than The Professor thought previously. The less experienced team had a lot of trouble with these two.  Ultimately Green got lucky and did a backwards jump off the second rope which allowed him to pin the 217 lb. Andrews.

2. New Ox Baker Cup.  Ian Griffin v. Shady Shay Cash v. Triplelicious v. Steve “The Turtle” Weiner v. Christian Casanova v. Frank Champion.  W – Triplelicous

The winner of this tournament is granted an option to compete for any NCW title at any time of his choosing throughout 2015.  The Turtle was the first out followed by Heavy Hitter Cash.  Fellow H.H. Frank Champion was next over the ropes. Young Casanova was double-teamed over the top by Griffin and Triplelicious.

Triplelicious was victorious and has a great opportunity in 2015.  We’ll see how intelligently he uses his spot.

3. New England Championship: Buddy Romano v. Robbie “The Giant” Araujo (C).  W – Araujo

Once again Mr. GQ tried to class up the joint with his “Pinkies Up!” request.  For the most part the fans in the room did not take advantage of this generous offer of an etiquette lesson.

The Giant dominated this match which is no small feat given Mr. Romano’s skill in the ring.  A smart wrestler sometimes focuses on one body part like a hand or knee in order to immobilize his foe.  Robbie put his effort into one area.  The Professor will refer to it as “Below The Equator” since this is a family blog.  It had effect.  Ouch.

The Giant at one point used a Cannonball in the corner to devastating effect. Mr. Romano thought he had the match won when he rolled up The Giant with his feet on the ropes for a pin. Referee Roche saw this and would not grant him the win. Robbie took advantage of Buddy’s wild protest and did a Roll Up of his own for the pin. Mr. Romano protested yet again and Robbie punished him by shoving the belt in his face after knocking him down hard. This was a small humiliation that The Professor predicts will not be forgotten by Buddy Romano. Look for Romano to take revenge in 2015.

4. Dastardly Doug Summers (with Ashley Vox) v. Deputy Commissioner Richard Pacifico.  W – Summers

The condition of this match was that the loser must retire from Professional Wrestling permanently.  The Professor could not imagine higher stakes.

The ring posts contained extender rods with: A Chair, A Chain, An Aluminum Baseball Bat, and A Kendo Stick.  All were used liberally.

The diminutive Manager Ms. Vox was quite effective.  Summers tried to tee her up to smash Pacifico with the ball bat (Pacifico got out of it before damage was done) and she jumped on the opponent’s back and choked Pacifico with a chain at ringside.

Tables were used, 3 in all, including the Announcer’s table.  Summers brought out an electric drill from under the ring and tried using it but ran out of cord. Mr. Summers used the Kendo Stick on Pacifico’s head. He also choked him with the weapon. Summers was bloodied on the head. Somehow Mr. Pacifico was not.

Ms. Vox rescued Summers from a Crab and kicked Pacifico in the nether regions.  She was up for a punch in the face by Pacifico but managed to run away just before contact.  Summers used the tables to great effect but he was thrown through one himself.  He finished Pacifico with a Facebuster after putting a chair on the prostate opponent’s face.

Amazingly Pacifico remained conscious.  After the Referee Dube’s decision, the locker room cleared out for a tribute to Mr. Pacifico.

Intermission: G.A. West and Doc Ozone attacked The Lumberjake after the Pacifico Tribute in an attempt to remove him from the main event Triple Threat Match.  Kellan Thomas intervened.

5. Sean Feeney v. Santa Claus.  W – Santa Claus

What kind of jerk would beat up on Santa Claus?  Feeney never got to do this – Santa Body Slammed Feeney to beat him in literally seconds.  Then the Creepy Kids came in for a Christmas Beatdown on the Jolly Old Elf.  No toys for Lennox, Behm, or Feeney this year.

The Loomis Brothers came to Santa’s rescue, scaring away The Creepy Kids. Their match with The Underground Anarchy commenced immediately.

6. Tag Team Championship: The Underground Anarchy (C) v. The Loomis Brothers.  W – The Loomis Brothers (New Champions)

The Underground Anarchy have been making a name for themselves at Promotions around New England. (They’ve appeared recently at Showcase Pro Wrestling with great success).  This was not their night however.  The Loomis Brothers dominated the match from beginning to end.

Lennox did most of the work as Feeney was a non factor and Behm was ineffective. The Professor doubts that the rematch will be this easy for the Loomis’.

Eddie Loomis pinned Tim Lennox for the win.  Loomis Brothers new Champions.

7. Ruthless Ruy Batello v. Mike Paiva.  W – Paiva

This was billed as a grudge match.  Mike Paiva was outweighed by probably 150 pounds and going into the match. It didn’t look promising for him.  Paiva amazingly tried to do a couple of Sunset Flips on Batello.  He was able to execute them but they didn’t hurt the giant.  After a lot of back-and-forth, Paiva found a way to get the pin.

8. Heavyweight Championship: The Riot Kellan Thomas (C) v. G.A. West v. The Lumberjake.  W – Thomas

Lumberjake was hurt but managed to get to the match.  Doc Ozone was a major factor, interfering non-stop in a quasi-legal manner.  Somehow the Referee found it acceptable for him to be an in-ring participant numerous times throughout the contest. The Lumberjake did a neat Double Suplex on Thomas and West at the same time.  Only a true power wrestler could do that.

Another novel moment: A four-man Choke Hold.  When have you ever seen that?

By the end West was limping, The Lumberjake was out of the ring completely and Thomas was visibly out-of-gas.  G.A. West quoted some Old Testament Scripture as a prelude to his finishing move on Thomas.  Thomas somehow reversed things and did a Backwards Pile Driver on West followed by a pin.  Amazing.

The Lumberjake congratulated Thomas as a Sportsman does.  West sort of did the same.  Thomas acknowledged the skills and endurance of both opponents and thanked the crowd.  All three men walked/limped out of the room with pride intact.  The Professor looks forward to what NCW has in store for these 3 in February.
