The late Buddy Landel speaks truth to power.
NCW – Great Organization. We missed this show but get to Norwood every month when schedules permit. Check them out. Well worth it.

Head Over Heels
April 24, 2016
Somerville, MA USA
Promoter: Drew Cordeiro (Denver Colorado)
Ring Announcer: Rich Palladino
Referees: Rob Tuttle, others (names inaudible)
Thirteen matches and 5 hours later we emerged from The Somerville Armory exhausted but sated. Once again Denver Colorado gives the fans essentially a double show – much more than they paid for.
1. Brian Fury v. Drew Gulak. W. – Fury.
We missed all but the finishing move of this match due to traffic. Garmin screwed us by sending us through Harvard Square. Fury gets out of a sunset flip and forces Gulak to tap to a branding iron. We hate missing Wrestling God Fury in action.
2. Chuck O’Neill & Eric Spicely v. Cam-An Connection (Cam Zagami & Anthony Greene). W. – O’Neill & Spicely
A showcase of MMA vs. Brian Fury proteges. Greene has come so far so fast. Zagami is a good example of the Fury school, which is at this point is less about the Kowalski legacy and more about the skill of Fury as a master. Spicely outsmarts Zagami and forces him to submit to an arm bar.
3. Dave Cole & Anthony Stone v. Da Hoodz (Kris Pyro & Davey Cash). W. – Cole & Stone.
Pyro, Cash, and Stone are all maniacs. This was a well-fought slugfest that ended with a Dave Cole power bomb of Pyro for the pin. Credit to Cole – few have accomplished this. Look for Da Hoodz to put the bat to Cole when they get a chance.
4. Jon Silver v. Tommaso Ciampa. W. – Silver
Ciampa announced a new T Shirt based on his treatment of Silver called “Ciampa’s Chop House”. This was a fairly even match in which the smaller Silver somehow managed to put Ciampa in a torture rack and power bomb for a definitive win.
5. CLL Lucha Libra Championship: Shynron (C) v. Chuck Taylor. W. – Shynron.
Shynron was supposed to face Lio Rush who is injured. Chuck Taylor proved a worthy replacement. Shynron’s Ariel style didn’t quite work against Taylor and his title was in jeopardy several times throughout the match. Shynron prevailed with a jack-knife pin.
6. Massage NV (Dorian Graves & VSK) vs. Milk Chocolate (Randy Summers & Brandon Watts) w/ Special Guest Referee Johnny Cockstrong. No contest.
Darius Carter’s unpleasant brigade interrupted what was expected to be a strong tag team contest featuring Johnny Cockstrong with a light up codpiece as guest ref. The match was reformulated on the fly as a 5-against-5 match.
7. Crusade For Change (Darius Carter, TJ Marconi, Anthony Gangone,Tommy Trainwreck & Devin Blaze) v. Massage NV (Dorian Graves & VSK), Milk Chocolate (Randy Summers & Brandon Watts) & Johnny Cockstrong. W. – CFC
When 10 men give it their all at a Beyond Wrestling show its hard to keep track on everything that went on. These guys literally showed an entire professional wrestling repertoire. Cockstrong may have regretted going beyond his contractual obligation as referee. Carter hurt him badly, ending the insanity with the “foreclosure” on JC.
8. Matt Riddle v. Sugar Dunkerton. W. – Riddle
Dunkerton entered to a Prince song dressed up like the recently deceased icon. Very classy. Too bad he mouthed off to Mr. Riddle saying “Welcome to wrestling bitch”. Riddle proceeded to welcome Sugar in return in a most violent way.
Riddle possesses what we call “earned arrogance”. It’s clear that he’s made the transition from MMA to professional wrestling. His moves, cadence, and ring discipline prove this. Riddle has seamlessly integrated MMA with wrestling in a way few others have done thus far. He put the talented Sugar Dunkerton away in 5 minutes with a springboard knee lift.
Rivals Spicely and O’Neil ran in after the pin to mess with Mr. Riddle who deftly KO’d Spicely before casually exiting the hall. As we said: Earned Arrogance.
9. Team Pazuzu (Jaka & EYFBO (Mike Draztik & Angel Ortiz)) v. The Colony. W. – Team Pazuzu.
We heard that the Chikara stars had not worked as a team for several years. This did not show as they put up a good match against a well-oiled Team Pazuzu. It’s amazing how well TP works together no matter the combination of the team on any given night. Fire Ant seemed either dazed or injured, spending part of the match outside the ring. Jaka capitalizes, kicking and pinning the rouge insect.
10. Jonathan Gresham & Jordynne Grace v. Ryan Galeone & Veda Scott. W. Gresham & Grace.
Ugly, ugly, ugly. Between the personal animosity of the teams, and males pressing the boundaries of sadism on female opponents, this match was horror. Highlights were Ms. Grace getting the giant Galeone up on her shoulders and Gresham’s two shooting star moonsaults, the second of which finished off Galeone. Scott was banged up pretty badly in this match. Perhaps she’ll re-think going after Jordynne Grace in the future.
11. Kimber Lee v. Colt Cabana. W. – Lee.
Fan chants of “This is awkward!” reflected Colt Cabana’s hesitance to chop or otherwise hurt Kimber Lee. She eventually taunted him into a full on match. The superstar was perplexed and seemed unsure of how to counter the aggressive Ms. Lee. He eventually relented and it was on. Kimber Lee showed Cabana what inter-gender wrestling is about in 2016, finishing him with an alligator clutch after his failed top rope moonsault. A classy Cabana took the mic and said “Tonight you were the better wrestler Kimber Lee”.
12. Da Hit Squad (Dan Maff & Monsta Mack) v. Death by Elbow (JT Dunn & Chris Hero). W. – Da Hit Squad.
A quality match by two of the world’s greatest active tag teams. Mack had Dunn pinned with a power bomb. It appeared that Hero had Maff pinned but Maff may have had a hand on the ropes. Probably both men were not legal. Referee Tuttle called it for Da Hit Squad. Hero attacked Mr. Tuttle. Dunn joined in and slapped the referee. Joey Janela entered the room followed by David Starr. The two of them got into a brawl and ended up somewhere behind the curtains. When Dunn sneered at the crowd a spontaneous and continued chant of “ASS#@*LE” was directed at the miscreant.
13. Donovan Dijak vs. Chris Dickinson. No Contest.
One of the greatest matches ever that would have decided who is the big man/king of Beyond Wrestling. We got to see Dirty Daddy put Dijak in a Pazuzu Bomb, something unique. Figure fours, Feast your eyes, power bombs, etc. What ruined everything was the interference of weasel JT Dunn assisted by Chris Hero. They stole the match from the fans. This was followed by Gresham, Grace, Lee entering the ring. All 3 ended up on the ground as Death by Elbow left unscathed. Dijak was out of it on the floor and was protected and assisted by Anthony Stone. Almost 5 hours on our feet to be robbed of resolution. Jeez.

We saw Lufisto live for the first time at Women’s Wrestling Revolution Project XX in Providence on April 10th. We were awestruck by her performance and we’ve not yet recovered completely. She is one of the greatest female wrestlers of all time and one of the top athletes in the world today. We stand amazed.

Showcase Pro Wrestling
April 16, 2016
Attleboro, MA USA
Ring Announcers: Sgt. Muldoon, Mr. Diamond
Referees: Zack Belair, Brian Partington
Promoter: Chris Blackheart
Commissioner: Mr. Frank Rocha
Professor’s Note: Levesque and Candido continue to be the bedrock of this company. Keep an eye on Jon Thornhill. He’s a threat to the status quo. Vinton and Night could at any time depose the current regime.
Match videos will be available after 10:00 p.m EST 19 April at our YouTube channel.
Match 1. Chris Matrix v. Richie Rich (with Superstar Shawn Candido). W – Matrix
Ledeur’s interference backfired badly when Matrix shoved Rich into his former partner, knocking him off the apron. Matrix applied the Shooting Star Moonsault to pin Rich before he could regain his balance. Smart victory by Matrix.
Lockdown Segment: Sgt. Muldoon & Black Wolf
The Wolf is back and is the substitute opponent for Superstar Shawn Candido. It was announced that Benny Blanco had some kind of travel restrictions keeping him from Attleboro. Travel restrictions from The Bronx? Puerto Rico is part of the U.S.A. We wonder what’s going on with the #1 contender.
Match 2. Diabolical Scott Ledeur v. “The Clinic” Chris James. W – James
Scott Ledeur’s meds need to be tweaked. He’s back to thinking that anyone in the ring with him is his hated ex-partner Chris Matrix. He got very confused when the real Matrix appeared at ringside to taunt him. Ledeur blames Matrix for his unique haircut. Who blames anyone but his barber and himself for choosing a tonsure? James takes advantage of the Matrix distraction for a neck breaker and pin.
Match 3. “The Cartel” Mad Dog Matt Storm & Rev. Redemption with Hailey Hawkins v. Nicholas Night & Cargill Vinton. W – The Cartel
Redemption was beating on Night outside the ring when Cargill had Storm pinned. Referee Belair’s distraction was enough to allow Scott Levesque to enter the scene, ascend to the top turnbuckle, and put a flying knee in Vinton’s back. He put Storm’s hand on the prostrate Vinton’s chest and Belair counted the pin.
After the match Sgt. Muldoon illuminated fans on the mystery women who interfered in the Cartel’s Marchiversary X match. The persons is actually his niece Alicia. She entered the ring and tried to attack Ms. Hawkins without success. This sets up a rare female feud in SPW.
Match 4. Scott Levesque (with Hailey Hawkins)Open Challenge: Contest 1: Carlos Esteban. W. – Levesque. Contest 2: (Duke Last name inaudible). W. – Levesque. Contest 3: Jon Thornhill. W. – Levesque
This is getting ridiculous. The Premiere athlete in New England fights 3 back-to-back matches and fairly easily defeats his opponents without even really cheating. The Peruvian misses a super kick and submits to a Levesque Boston Crab. Duke falls for the feint as he tries to charge Scott in the corner. Levesque rolls him up with a bit of tights for the pin. Jon Thornhill gave the former champion some serious competition but as fatigued as he must have been, Levesque puts Thornhill away with a DDT and pin.
Match 5. The Fellowship (G.A. West & S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs with Doctor Ozone) v. Gary Gold & Travis Funk. W – The Fellowship
The Fellowship teased and mocked their opponents’ vintage before being given a rough contest. Yes they won, as is expected of the #20 team in the world. The fact that two so-called “geezers” were so difficult to take down we are sure is giving Doctor Ozone food for thought. West takes advantage of the good Doctor’s distraction and rolls up Gary by his tights. Fair win by The Fellowship.
Match 6. Heavyweight Championship Match: Superstar Shawn Candido – Champion (with Richie Rich) v. Black Wolf. W – Candido (DQ)
The legitimacy of this contest is questionable given that The Champ did not sign to face the seven-foot giant. Nevertheless, he battled against at least 150 pound weight differential and gave it good to Black Wolf. Mr. Rich did what he does best and intervened, securing Mr. Candido’s rightful title.

Women’s Wrestling Revolution
April 10, 2016
Providence, RI USA
Booker: Drew Cordeiro (Denver Colorado)
Ring Announcer: Rich Palladino
Referees: Tony P., Manny Souza, Kevin Quinn
Timekeeper: Steve “The Turtle” Weiner
This was the first WWR event at Fete and it was a barn burner. The athletes showed the world what great wrestling is all about. While a celebration of the female wrestler, we almost forgot we were at a “women’s show”, the work being done drew us in for its quality. People chanted “Women’s Wrestling”. After a couple of matches that chant changed to “This is Wrestling”. That says it all.
1. Pre-Show Bonus Match: M.J. Jenkins v. Dominique Fabiano. W. Fabiano
TWP was availing himself of the Championship Melt food truck offerings when this match took place. The Co-Conspirator reports that Ms. Jenkins sang her own entrance music to good humor and that this was a competitive contest.
2. Taeler Hendrix v. Barbi Hayden. W. – Hendrix
Hendrix has improved significantly since her OVW run. She greeted Barbi Hayden with a smug “Welcome to New England”, a nasty head butt, and a match-finishing tombstone pile driver. Hayden put up a decent fight but it was Taeler’s night.
3. Fatal 4 Way: Davienne v. Sonya Strong v. Miranda Vionette v. Willow Nightingale. W. – Strong
An aggressive match between 4 dangerous competitors. Davienne has come so far in the past few years and she showcased her skills in this match which she could have won. Strong and Nightingale did a neat double drop kick from the top corners. Miranda tried 3 pins in succession without success when Strong, who spent much of the match outside the ring dazed on the floor, pinned her with a tiger suplex.
4. Belmont (with Miss Sammi Lane) v. Solo Darling. W. – Belmont
One of New England’s best faced an unusual creature with a tail. Solo Darling kept Belmont off-balance for most of the match. If it were not for Miss Lane distracting Referee Magoo Quinn, Belmont might not have been able to roll up Ms. Darling for the pin.
This started as an interview spot with Ashley Mason and Chelsea Green. Brazilian Raquel butted in and it was not long before the opponentless Alexxis came in and asked for a match. Nevaeh is another of New England’s best and she shut Raquel’s mouth, winning definitively with a flatliner. It was great to see our local legend kick an international star around.
The match of the night. Kimber Lee in our estimation is one of the greatest wrestlers alive today. We had never seen Lufisto live and were astonished to see such an intense match. Lufisto is a god. As great as Lee is, she was lucky to leave the ring victorious, not to mention alive. Lee rolled up the Québécois for the pin. The crowd gave both athletes a long-standing ovation, something not often seen in a New England show. They deserved it.
7. Beyond Wrestling Showcase Match: Eddie Edwards v. “The Octopus” Jonathan Gresham. W. – Gresham
Gresham is billed as the finest technical wrestler in the world. He may well be. Eddie Edwards is in the running for the same title. This was a spirited match of scientific mat wrestling. Any trainee should view this tape a couple of hundred times to understand the essence of the Greco-Roman techniques that are essential to this sport. Gresham gets the pin.
Jenny Rose not only had a size difference to deal with, she was having trouble with her ring gear which didn’t help her against the awesome power and skill of Jessicka Havok. Ms. Rose can be proud of the job she did, but Havok was not to be denied. She ended Rose’s hopes with an air raid crash.
Grudge match from last month at Aurora. Grace was out for blood but Scott was as well, stating loudly her hatred for her opponent. Scott seemed unfazed by the absence of her goon Galleone. She is much better than we thought, giving Jordynne one hell of a match. Scott got the first fall, Grace the second with a power bomb. Veda showed her savvy by taking a swig of Grace’s energy drink and spitting it into her face, followed by a roll up pin for the third fall.
10. Deonna Purrazzo v. Santana Garrett. W. – Purrazzo
We are sure that Deonna Purrazzo was honored to face such a storied opponent as Ms. Garrett. That being said, Purrazzo’s place in the international top-tier is now beyond question. This match was a perfect example of why women are total athletes and should never again be called Divas or Knockouts. What a testament to this sport by these two stars. Purrazzo sneaks out of the ropes for the pin.

Superstar Shawn Candido successfully defended his Showcase Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship at Marchiversary X in Taunton, MA and again last Saturday in Woonsocket, RI. Mr. Candido is the self-proclaimed “Showcase of Showcase” and the greatest SPW champion of all time. He now has the complete wrestling organization with second Richie Rich and the amazing Nikki Valentine.
The man has held the title for over 13 months in the most competitive company in New England. Like him or hate him, he is what he claims to be. This is a golden age of Candido’s making.
