Professor’s Notes: We were honored to be given a few minutes of the legendary Ricky Sexton’s time after the show. Mr. Sexton starred in the WWWF for 10 years. He told us he had over 1000 matches before he left his teens. He’s a legend.

Rich Palladino is quite a “get” for Showcase. He’s the most in-demand announcer in The Northeast. His work in ECW, Chaotic, and Beyond Wrestling has made him an international property.

Match videos will be available after 10:00 p.m EST 15 November at our YouTube channel.

Match 1. Diabolical Scott Ledeur (with Annabel) v. Carlos Esteban. W – Esteban (DQ)

Scott dominated Carlos as in their last match but blew it when he wouldn’t release the Peruvian once the bell had rung after submission. Decision reversed by Referee Belair. This referee should be careful. This is the third match this fall that he’s reversed for dubious reasons. Insane wrestlers are not always understanding.

Match 2. Superstar Shawn Candido v. “The Apprentice” Dante (with Doctor Ozone and Osiris). W – Candido

Candido has trouble with the up-and-coming kid as in their last contest but ends up finishing the punk with his patented stomp to the back of the head. Doctor Ozone didn’t have a chance to cheat.

The Nastys Pontificate

Buck Nasty and his annoying father Papa Nasty addressed the crowd. Buck claimed to have researched tonight’s opponent Richie Rich’s WWF career and demonstrated Mr. Rich’s consistent finishing move. Very funny.

Match 3. Chris Cruise & Foxy v. Chris Matrix & Alicia. W – Matrix & Alicia

This was a rematch. Foxy and Cruise are a seasoned team and toyed with Alicia and even the great Chris Matrix. Alicia got lucky once again and bounced Foxy off the ropes for a roll up pin. She’s blessed to have some of her early matches against some of New Bedford’s finest.

Match 4.  Tag Team Title Match: The Fellowship (S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs & Osiris with Doctor Ozone) V. Todd Harris & Malik Logan. W. – The Fellowship

The children gave the adults more of a fight than anticipated in what was expected to be a 5 minute rest match for the champions. Osiris particularly caught punishment from both Harris and Logan. After play time was over, The Fellowship put Harris in The Nail in The Cross Finisher but Referee Belair wouldn’t count the pin because Osiris was not the legal man. Ribs then dropped Logan on his head and easily pinned him for the win.

Match 5. Heavyweight Championship Match: Buck Nasty (C. with Papa Nasty) v. Richie Rich (with Ricky Sexton) W – Nasty

Worthy challenger Richie Rich was accompanied by his father, legendary WWWF star Ricky Sexton. The always irritating Papa Nasty seconded his son. Apparently his wife lent him one of her hats to wear, which was nice of her. Richie punished Buck by focusing on keeping him on the ground and working his legs. Dueling figure fours and other scientific techniques almost succeeded for Richie Rich. In the end Rich succumbs to the inescapable Nasty Splash.

Match 6. Survivor Series Style 6 Man Team Match: S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs, Osiris, Chris Matrix, Alicia, Rob “The Trash Man” Roberts, & Dante (with Doctor Ozone) v. Diabolical Scott Ledeur, Foxy, Chris Cruise, Superstar Shawn Candido, Malik Logan, & Todd Harris. W – Ribs, Osiris, Matrix, Alicia, Roberts, & Dante

An excellent novelty match featuring 12 of the top stars in Showcase. We always have a hard time describing the trajectory of battle royals and multiple man matches so we encourage you to watch the video (available Tue. night). Matrix finishes former partner Ledeur with his Shooting Star Moonsault.
