Showcase Pro Wrestling
September 15, 2018
Lee’s Pond Festival
Attleboro, MA USA
Ring Announcer: T.J. Albin
Referee: Frank Rocha
Promoter: Chris Blackheart
Commissioner: John Cena Sr.
Professor’s Notes: The cloud cover blew away just in time to for the sun to super heat the ring. The workers put on a good performance for an enthusiastic crowed of really young kids. The next generation was into it in a big way. Fall festivals are a great time to enjoy an outdoor show. Another one Sunday in Raynham.
Match videos will be available after 3:00 p.m EST Sep. 18 at our YouTube channel.
Match 1. Carlos Esteban v. Mike Montero. W – Esteban
Carlos has been on a steady upward trajectory until he was stopped cold at two attempts to dethrone Heavyweight Champion Ronnie Ribs. The high-flying Montero was a chance to regain momentum and he wasn’t going to let it slip by him. Montero used his quickness and agility effectively but Carlos was not going home without a win. He wisely used the momentum of feet-on-the-ropes to pin Montero. Smart.
Match 2. “The Big Dawgs” (Rev. Redemption & Big Dawg Butler) v. Buck Nasty & Chris Matrix. W – The Big Dogs (DQ)
We asked Matrix from ringside why he would team with Buck Nasty and he replied that the Southern Giant was “a good resource”. Makes sense to us. This was the first time we had seen Butler team with Redemption and we think that the announcer under represented their weight. They come close to 750 pounds combined easily. There was a lot of pummeling, eye gouging, and good old-fashioned squishing but neither team could get the upper hand. Nasty and Matrix got over excited while double teaming Redemption in the corner (fairly) but not stopping before Referee Rocha’s 5 count. DQ for The Big Dawgs.
Match 3. Tag Team Championship: The Bitter Club (Buddy Romano & Sensational Scott Levesque with Ruby Bastein) v. Detox (Ricky Medeiros & Jason Devine). W – The Bitter Club (New Champions)
Detox had a surprise win over The Bitter Club recently in Woonsocket so The Premiere Wrestler of New England and Beautiful Buddy Romano were in no mood to fool around. Detox seem to be a team who play by the rules which puts them at a big disadvantage when facing a Machiavellian team like The Bitter Club.
Buddy throws Scott a stunned Jason Devine and Scott applies a DDT as only he can. Devine pinned cleanly.
Apparently the titles were vacant and The Bitter Club regained them after an embarrassing loss to Mr. Vega and Mr. Vinton last week in Taunton. All is as it should be.
Match 4. Heavyweight Championship: Soldier of God Ronnie Ribs (C) v. Chris Cruise. W – Ribs
The Soldier of God is a true fighting champion. He’s faced top rate competitors so far and has defeated them all. Chris Cruise is not as big as Ribs but he has quickness, technical ability, strength and best of all: Sneakiness. He was a worthy contender. Ribs appeared to sustain an arm or shoulder injury as a result of a painful Cruise Chicken Wing.
Despite the handicap, Mr. Ribs finished the man from Roswell with a cruel DDT. Still champion.
