We’ve heard you. The Professor has a habit of vocalizing during the filming of matches. Given that his mouth is inches from the camera mic, this becomes a bit much. From now on we will do our level best to stay quiet as to not detract from the quality of the videos. Please be patient, as we are fans first, commentators second. Videography is a distant third. We’ll do better. For the workers, and for you.
Tribute to Chris Mack and Mean Gene Okerlund
Sargent Muldoon gave a heartfelt speech about the loss of both men. Chris Mack was a friend of many of us in the room so this was especially poignant.
Match 1. Alec Price (with HD3) v. The Masshole Mike McCarthy. W – McCarthy (Submission)
Price dismissed McCarthy before the match as “a relic of the Nineties”. Big mistake. Despite his youth, talent, developing skill, and the sneaky distraction of HD3, Price ends up submitting to the classic CTFO (Choke The F Out). McCarthy is back and as hot as he ever was.
Note: HD3 continues to be livid with us at misspelling his name on this site. Correction: His name is “Howitzer David The Third”. We hope this settles things.
Match 2. Chris Matrix v. Robbie The Giant. W – Matrix
Matrix took the mic and protested the office overlooking him for a good Marchiversary slot given the fact that he is undefeated at Marchiversary. He proffered a challenge to anyone in the back who had the guts to face him. Robbie answered the call. Robbie frustrated the heck out of Matrix with his comedic style. In the end, Matrix had enough of The Giant’s antics. He finished the diminutive wrestler with a power slam.
Matrix is now an unpredictable danger to SPW. As Gerald Celente says “When people have nothing to lose – they lose it”. Who knows what he is going to do prior to or during Marchiversary?
Match 3. Mr. Don Vega & Superstar Shawn Candido v. Cold Hard Cash (Shay Cash & David Cash). W – Cold Hard Cash
David Cash celebrated his 21 year relationship with Mr. Don Vega on mic and then proceeded to beat his friend using every sneaky, dirty trick in the New Bedford wrestling handbook. No problem with that, it was the vicious attack on Mr. Vega after the bell that upset the crowd. Shay held a stunned Mr. Vega up as David did a flying kick to off the top rope. David took the mic and told Mr. Vega “Davey Cash loves championships. You have what I want. At the end of the day it’s just business.” The office quickly set a rematch for February 16th in Taunton. This is far from over.
Match 4. S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs v. Five Star Jace (with Honest Abe). W – Jace
In our opinion it would be unlikely that Jace could beat Ribs in a fair contest. No disrespect to Jace, it’s just that Ribs is at his peak. The difference maker here was not Honest Abe as expected, but the interference of Buddy Romano. Buddy knocked Ribs off the top rope as he was about to finish Jace. This allowed Jace to cover a knocked out Ribs.
Match 5: Sons of Liberty Championship: Carlos Esteban (C, with Ruby Bastein) v. The Master of Mayhem Tommy Mack. – No Contest
Mack showed the skill and grit of a champion. We wondered why he isn’t a ranked contender for the SPW Heavyweight title. Carlos held his own but we felt that the momentum was in Mack’s favor. The Master of Mayhem removed Ruby as a factor and was on his way, when once again Buddy Romano intervened. This brought out Alec Price, who attacked Esteban, Mike McCarthy, who attacked Price, HD3 to the aid of Price, Chris Matrix, who attacked McCarthy, and Ronnie Ribs, who attacked Matrix. Referee Warren had no choice but to call the match. Insane.
