Professor’s Notes: Marchiversary XI was beyond sold out. The room was packed and the fans got more than their money’s worth. We’ve attended SPW shows regularly for the past three years and can honestly say that this was the best event yet. It’s so nice in these troubled wrestling times to see a family business grow and evolve the way Showcase has done. Congratulations to everyone involved.

Match videos will be available after 10:00 p.m EST 28 March at our YouTube channel.

Match 1. Heavyweight Championship Match: Buck Nasty (C) v. Nicholas Night.  – No Contest

Nick accidentally took out Referee Belair with a flying drop kick off the top rope.  As he was dazed Buck took Nick’s steel chain off his neck and wrapped it around his fist. Buck tried to use it for the K.O. but Nick avoided the blow and dropped Nasty’s face on his knees and rolled him for a pin. Referee Carter ran into the ring and counted to three, declaring Night the winner. Mr. Belair revived and tried to reverse the decision (reason unclear).  Nasty entered the ring in rage and attacked both referees who wisely fled. Commissioner Rocha got into the ring to bring some order and was promptly KO’d by Nasty. Nasty then attacked Sgt. Muldoon, who fought back hard. Promoter Blackheart and former Champion Benny Blanco inserted themselves but were unable to mollify Buck Nasty. Sgt. finally announced that Referee Belair disqualified Buck Nasty which meant a Nick Night win but no title change. Mr. Muldoon informed the room that the Heavyweight Title is “held up” (vacated) and would be determined by the outcome of the Gauntlet For The Gold later in the evening. Mr. Nasty proclaimed that he would “bury SPW” and left in disgust.

Match 2. Alicia v. Delilah v. Foxy. W – No Contest

We expected Foxy and Delilah to gang up on Face Alicia but they beat each other up as much as the fan favorite during a fairly even contest. Alicia managed a double bulldog and might have gotten an advantage had Scott Ledeur not entered the ring uninvited and destroyed all three women in succession. Before Ledeur could be coaxed backstage his rival Jack Krueger entered with doll Annabel in a little red wagon. This naturally upset Scott. Referee Carter declared no contest.

Match 3. Chris Matrix v. “Cruisin” Chris Cruise. W – Matrix

Stipulation: If one wrestler’s feet hit the floor during the match, instant loss. A culmination of a months long feud. A fairly even, brutal contest that could have gone either way until both men were on the apron. Cruise clotheslined Matrix back into the ring for some reason. Matrix quickly capitalized, kicking Cruise through the ropes and onto the floor.

Match 4.  Tag Team Championship: “Team Number One” (Richie Rich & Superstar Shawn Candido with Doctor Ozone) v. “The Harris Country Club” (Todd Harris & Malik Logan) with special referee S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs. W – Team Number One

Team Number One were displeased to say the least at the appointment of the S.O.G. as special referee. This is a man who they not only relieved of his tag team title, but took his manager in the process. Mr. Ribs promised to call the match straight, but continually came up with super slow counts every time Rich or Candido had the youths pinned. This went on for 15 minutes when Harris came flying and knocked our camera out of commission. We quickly switched to the Samsung Phone and captured the rest of the match.

In minute 20 Candido kicked young Harris in the head (trademark move) and got him in a pin that even Ribs could not stop with a slow count. Ribs dejectedly counted 3 and declared the champions victorious. He then received a well-deserved beat down by Rich, Candido, and Ozone until he was saved by Fellowship partners Osiris and Dante.

Match 5. “The Punisher” Mr. Don Vega v. Tommy Mack v. Osiris. W – Osiris

All three men have beefs with each other so this was a good vehicle for resolution. The antagonists beat the crap out of each other for quite some time until an exhausted Osiris knocked Mr. Vega to the floor and countered a Tommy Mack charge, throwing Mack on his face for the pin.

Match 6. Gauntlet For The Gold. W – Nicholas Night

TGFTG is a 30-man rumble-style event held annually at Marchiversary. Contestants are chosen at random and enter at intervals of a few minutes.  This year, due to monkey business in the opening Heavyweight Championship contest, the winner of the Gauntlet is the new Heavyweight Champion.  Todd Harris was the first to be called, followed by Steven Lust.

Battle Royal matches can sometimes be a bore, but this was anything but. Scores were settled, talents showcased, alliances formed and betrayed. Great all around.  In the end Nicholas Night removed rival Buck Nasty for the final conclusion to their blood feud.

A bloodied Cargill Vinton came into the ring post victory to congratulate his long-time friend. Instead he knocked him cold. The new champion was dazed for quite some time but managed to leave the room under his own power.  We believe this is the third title reign in SPW for the 18-year veteran.
