17 years of operation in a business that is rocky, crazy, and constantly changing. Not a small achievement. Congratulations to Mssrs. Goldberg, Richard, and the entire organization. The NECW product is excellent. Thanks from all of us.
1. Ty Shine v. Kid Curry. W – Curry
Ty Shine is a skilled wrestler but in the end, the third-generation Curry’s mat wrestling got the best of him. After a spirited contest Curry ends it with a moonsault and pin.
2. “Big Bacon” Brad Hollister v. “The Almighty” Anthony Stone. W – Stone
We hadn’t seen Hollister in some time and were taken aback by how big he’s become. He was able to use his power against the smaller Stone but The Hardcore Jesus outsped him for most of the match. Stone deftly reverses a piledriver for a roll up pin.
3. Big Jym Anderson v. Sensational Scott Levesque. W – Anderson
Beau Douglas again tries to plead his case and gets pushed aside in a two-against-one scenario. We wonder if Anderson or Holliday can win a match on his own. Holliday distracted Scott Levesque allowing Big Jym to sneak up from behind for a roll up pin.
4. Television Championship “Last Laugh” Match. “The Funny Man” Devin Blaze (C) v. “The Heat” Kris Pyro. W – Blaze
For some reason these two fine technicians decided to put on a hard-core match. In 2017. A kendo stick, garbage can, pinata full of tacks poured into a baby pool, and a cheese grater were brought to bear. Blaze drew Pyro’s blood with the cheese grater. They bashed each other’s heads with both garbage can and lid. Both men landed back first into the tacks. After an even match The Stacked Deck (Montero & Cruise) entered the ring and held Pyro down while Blaze delivered the coup d’gras . Blaze then whaled on both stooges and left the ring having defeated 3 men.
Frankly we disapprove of this type of match in the modern era. Hardcore is a thing of the past and degrades the sport and the athletes. Pyro and Blaze are masters of their craft. It would have served the fans better if they had put on the wrestling clinic of which they are more than capable.
5. World Women’s Wrestling Fatal Four Way: Tequila Rose v. Adira v. Isana v. Amanda Fox. W – Tequila Rose
It amused us to see The Powerplex Girls try to work together with disasterous results. Adira ended up clocking Isana with a chain leading to her being pinned by Fox. Adira was quickly eliminated and Tequila Rose got the last laugh when she pinned Ms. Fox. Springfield beats New Bedford.
6. #1 Contender Match. Slyck Wagner Brown v. Richard Holliday. W – Brown
The arrogant Holliday finally got his comeuppance by a legendary veteran. The disrespect of Mr. Douglas bore fruit as Beau eliminated Big Jym as a factor. In a fair fight the hubristic kid could not best SWB. Mr. Brown, multiple time former champion is now the #1 contender.
7. Kool People (Sammy Deleon & DJ AC) v. Adrenaline Rush (Keith Youngblood & Dangerous Daniel Evans – Champions). W – Kool People (DQ)
The dimwitted Adrenaline Rush decided to force a DQ. Dumb. The title stays with the champions in a disqualification you dopes.
The Rush might have gotten the job done had not Youngblood tossed his cane to DJ AC after using it to knock out his own partner. AC reflexively caught the cane. When Referee Mahoney turned around and saw AC holding the weapon she called a DQ. The Kool People hold their title, Evans has an egg on his head, and Youngblood is wondering why they don’t have the belts. Wow.
8. Last Man Standing Match – NECW Heavyweight Championship. Todo Loco v. “Pure Talent” Chris Escobar. W – Todo Loco (New Champion)
This is the correct way to add some hardcore elements to a match. Tables and aerial stunts beat gimmicky thumb tacks and blading by a mile.
Todo Loco and Chris Escobar put on an amazing and energetic match. We cringed when Escobar went over the balcony but to our relief it appears no one was injured. Big Bear deserves the thanks as he absorbed most of the punishment and possibly saved Escobar’s career. Todo Loco is the new champion.
