It was a bit surprising to see a team of the stature of The Glamour Express in an opening bout against a lesser-known duo.  Romano and Paiva are a main event tag team.  They carried the match both from the technical and comedy perspectives.  Mass Disturbance are big strong guys but they don’t reach the levels of elegance and science of The Glamour Express.  They wisely focused on multiple groin shots which weakened the Glamorous Ones, and used their main tool – power, to double slam and pin their natty opponents.

Al Bassler Interviews The Masshole Mike McCarthy

Mr. McCarthy pledged to call things down the middle as special referee in tonight’s championship match even though he openly plans to destroy the winner and take the title he feels he’s earned.  He expressed a bit of glee at the prospect of his top two opponents damaging each other.

2. Superstar Shawn Candido vs. “The Mind Eraser” Mike Graca.  W. Graca

This was the NECW debut of Superstar Shawn Candido, a legend in the storied Southern New England wrestling scene.  Most of the crowd did not know who he was or realized the honor bestowed upon young Graca by allowing him in the same ring with The Superstar.  The Professor got the impression that Mr. Candido was a bit restrained, this being his introduction to the NECW fans.  He could have easily beat the unstable youngster.  Graca took advantage of a rare opening and executed a smart shoulder breaker followed by a pin.

After the match the kid made some jests about having defeated Shawn Michaels and Chris Candido.  He, and the Everett fans, had no idea who had just put him over. They don’t realize what’s coming from Candido.

3. Toxis (with Mistress Belmont and Miss Sammi Lane) vs. Davienne.  W. Davienne

Davienne wants a “Last Woman Standing” match with Mistress Belmont for the title. Tonight she had to get through Toxis first.  Miss Lane stipulated on mic that if Davienne could defeat Toxis she would grant the match.  Toxis is not nearly as skilled as Davienne and it looked that despite the size and power differential she was on the way to a win.  Belmont distracted the referee and Lane slid a chair into the ring. Toxis tried to use it but Davienne ducked and the chair bounced off the top rope, beaning the eccentric wrestler in the head. Davienne swooped in for the pin.

After the bell, Miss Lane publicly fired Toxis from The Sisterhood, as she did to Nikki Valentine last year. Toxis was not pleased and left visibly angry.

This was a no rules contest and it quickly devolved into a repeat of the Hollister v. Maverick Bunkhouse match last year.  Very little of this match occurred in the ring or anywhere near it.  The opponents fought in the lobby, in the men’s room, in the utility closet, and in the parking lot of the Everett Police station.  In fact Maverick, bashed Genesis’ head against the station door a few times.  Amazingly there was no Police response or arrests despite 100 fans swarming the station in what could easily have been interpreted as a riot.

Genesis was about to end things when Scott Levesque interfered and tried to suffocate Genesis with a plastic bag.  Maverick got the pin and astonishingly Referee Magoo Bartollo let it stand.  This is a travesty.  Genesis has been severely wronged by the company.  He deserves a shot now at Levesque’s Television title.

5. Dan Terry vs. Fox Vinyer (with Rahlynn St. Gregory).  W. Vinyer

Dan Terry is the undisputed Fittest Man In The World.  The Professor cannot publish some of the pictures he took of Mr. Terry causing female fans to faint as he displayed his physique.  He’s been often compared to Hercules.  Modesty is not part of the package.  Terry dominated a tough competitor in Vinyer, but spent a bit too much time taunting Mr. Vinyer’s manager, Ms. St. Gregory, as well as the adoring female and envious male fans.  This in the end allowed Mr. Vinyer to get the pin.

6.  Television Championship Match: Sensational Scott Levesque (C) (with Miss Sammi Lane) vs. Former Champion Todo Loco.  W. Todo Loco (Count Out)

The Wrestling God entered in his full glory accompanied by Miss Sammi Lane. Todo Loco has some sort of resentment against Mr. Levesque, who clearly earned his title by using brains. The Professor has stated categorically that fairness is an elastic concept in Professional Wrestling. Todo Loco might think about some fair cheats going forward. A strategist like Mr. Levesque can rarely be beaten by conventional methods.

Miss Lane invited sister Belmont to the ring to add to the fun. Todo Loco brought Davienne out from backstage and she neutralized Belmont as a factor. Then revenge was had: Toxis came out and beat the heck out of Belmont and Lane. They were not ready for this response.

Levesque may have felt momentum going against him when he wisely left the room and took a count out. Why sweat too much when the title can be saved by leaving?

7. Heavyweight Championship Match: Slyck Wagner Brown (C) vs. Former Champion Brad Hollister. No Contest

Brad Hollister wasted no time and attacked Brown before the bell.  He spent a lot of time focusing on Brown’s recently recovered knee which could have been a disaster for the Champion. Luckily for him, Hollister desisted. This match was truly vicious. Soda cans to the head, out-of-ring battling, and all sorts of sadism were on display. Brown could have ended it with a sweet Hurricarana off the top rope followed by a leg to neck pin. McCarthy would only count to two and in what looked like a feigned injury, claimed his arm wouldn’t work.  his enraged Brown who struck the guest referee.  Hollister at one point got Brown into McCarthy’s signature CTFO and McCarthy ignored Brown’s possible tap.  Both Brown and Hollister then attacked McCarthy who ended things with a suicide dive on the opponents when they were outside the ring.  G.M. Richard announced a triple threat match between these men to settle things at Bash 15.

The Professor is giving Mr. McCarthy the benefit of the doubt based on his stellar record of fair play.  After all, he has carried the company on his back for years, and deserves his title shot.  He’ll likely take the championship at Bash 15 in 2 short months.
