New Heavyweight Champion Nicholas Night Addresses The Fans
Mr. Night is on his second run as SPW Champion. He took some time to express his views including his sadness at the fact that his old friend, former SPW Champion, Cargill Vinton, had betrayed him during the evening of his victory over Buck Nasty. Night was interrupted by the offstage voice of Cargill Vinton, who in a rather cryptic and dark diatribe, explained his perspective and made it clear that he intends to dethrone Nick Night. (We interviewed Mr. Vinton after the show. We tried to get to the bottom of things but this is still an incomprehensible and fluid situation. Check out the video on our YouTube channel)
Match 1. Chris Matrix v. RL Lane. W – Matrix
Matrix incessantly mocked the alleged telepathic powers of RL Lane all through the match. Lane gave some punishment but never managed to get his powers activated. Matrix slams him on his back for the pin and RL Lane limps home.
Match 2. Jack Krueger & Alicia Muldoon v. Amanda Fox & Diabolical Scott Ledeur (with Annabel). W – Fox & Ledeur
Impromptu teams of two men and two women who hate each other. The hoped for tag team flow never really materialized as the existing feuds dominated the contest. Ledeur ended up doing what he’s done before: Brutalizing Alicia, knocking the wind out of her to set up Fox for the easy pin. This happened because Krueger was momentarily immobilized by one of his psychotic episodes. Good times.
Match 3. Robbie “The Giant” Araujo & Brian Partington v. The Fellowship (Dante & S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs). W – The Fellowship
This was a weird match. Brian Partington returned to wrestling and teaming with Araujo after a hiatus. Both teams struggled to deal with the other, size and style disparities making it difficult for either side to gain the clear advantage. Brian tried a top rope dive onto Ribs. Ribs held onto the diminutive wrestler, slamming him for the pin.
Match 4. Big Dog Butler v. Carlos. W – Butler
Carlos brought his A game but was unable in the end to cope with the massive size of Big Dog Butler. For such a big man, Mr. Butler brings speed and a surprising variety of moves. Carlos made some headway with flying elbows off the top rope but The Big Dog finished things with an inescapable Frog Splash and pin.
Match 5: Three Way Elimination: Mack Attack (Monster Mack & Trainee #1) v. Team Number One (Superstar Shawn Candido & Richie Rich with Doctor Ozone) v. The Harris Country Club (Todd Harris & Malik Logan). W – Team Number One
The Champions let The Harris Country Club and Mack Attack soften each other up for quite some time before they actively entered the contest. Candido pins Harris and for some reason Mack Attack left the ring area. They were sent back by Sgt. Muldoon. Monster Mack double clotheslined Rich and Candido and went up top when Doctor Ozone grabbed his feet resulting in his falling on his crotch. Dazed, Candido stomped his head and pinned him clean. Victory as usual for Team Number One. Pure Genius on Doctor Ozone’s part.
Match 6. Yankee Pro Wrestling Reunion 3-Way Match: Trash Man Rob Roberts v. Steven Lust (with Mr. Chad Epik) v. The Blade Runner. W – Lust
Blade Runner and Roberts teamed up to keep Steven Lust on defense for most of the match. Fortunately for Lust, he had master manager Chad Epik in his corner. Epik kept the giant Blade Runner from doing his worst, though Roberts applied more than his share of punishment to the man from Lowell. Mr. Epik distracts Blade Runner by handling his sword outside the ring allowing Lust to pin The Trash Man.
Match 7. Heavyweight Title Contest: Nicholas Night (C) v. Chris Cruise. W – Night
This was Mr. Night’s first title defense since winning the Gauntlet For The Gold last month. Chris Cruise is done with his Matrix rivalry, and brought a lot to this contest. He’s getting better every month and there were plenty of moments in this fight when he was a real threat. Cruise managed to throw Night on his face but The Champion quickly countered with a roll up and a pin that to this reporter looked like only a two count. Both wrestlers are at the top of their games. Cruise continues to lurk as a top contender.
After the show we were able to interview Cargill Vinton and get his thoughts on his new state of mind. We admit to being confused about what is going on with the former Champion. Things are about to get very dark at SPW.
The interview will be available on our YouTube Channel) after 10:00 p.m. EST Monday 10 April.
