(Videos will be available 4 Dec. after 10:00 p.m. EST on our YouTube Channel)
Match 1. Kid Reflex Eric Dylan v. Hugo Brito. W – Dylan KO
For a change Kid Reflex was not at a size disadvantage. He used his considerable experience against the greener Brito in a series of strikes that had the youth off-balance throughout the match. Dylan put Hugo into a submission hold and finished him off with multiple elbows to the head which resulted in a Knock Out. Dylan insisted on Referee Roberts raising his hand in victory and promptly left the unconscious Brito on the canvas.
Blade Runner entered in a menacingly slow and methodical manner to the theme music from “Halloween”. He brandished a dragon-shaped incense burner. He touched all 4 corners of the ring in some sort of ritual that we did not understand. He proceeded to put Brito under some kind of spell, causing convulsions and foaming at the mouth. Blade Runner had a disturbing malevolent smirk on his face the entire time. No official dared intervene as he somehow forced the kid to follow him, crawling, out of the ring area. One of the strangest things we’ve ever seen in all of our years covering this great sport.
Match 2. “The Bitter Man” Buddy Romano v. Carlos Esteban. W – Romano
Bitter is back baby. Romano took awhile to hit his stride, finding Carlos to be no longer the rookie. The match was even on points when a dazed Romano fell victim to an Esteban aerial move for what would have been a pin had Buddy not deftly reversed things to put Carlos’ shoulders on the mat. A less skilled referee might have missed this since it was quite a tangle of limbs against the ropes but The Bitter Man won clean.
Ruby again diagramed his plans to destroy Gary Gold and John Cena Sr. He claims he will bury both bodies with a snow shovel tomorrow in Attleboro. It may be the last time we see our pal Ruby.
Match 3. Sons of Liberty Championship Match: Diabolical Scott Ledeur (C) with Annabel v. Big Dawg Butler. W – Ledeur
Scott Ledeur shows us again why he is a champion. Do you have any idea what strength and skill it takes to choke and ride the back from the top rope to the mat of a nearly 300 pound powerhouse? That’s how he ended things. Krueger interference was a factor in wearing down the man from Memphis. Butler is a seasoned veteran who is still developing and improving. That’s fun to see. Don’t be surprised to see a belt around his waist in 2018.
Match 4. Tag Team Championship Match: Team #1 (C, Superstar Shawn Candido & Richie Rich) v. The Stacked Deck (Mike Montero & Chris Cruise). W – Team #1
The latest serious threat to Team #1 is The Stacked Deck. They have come close and might have gotten it done tonight had not S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs interfered, sneaking in and power slamming Cruise. While Rich held Montero outside with a knee to the neck, Candido capitalized and pinned the stunned Cruise. We interviewed S.O.G after the show and asked why he would help Team #1, the people who ended (his) the longest reign in tag team history. He said that he didn’t do it to help them, but to keep the titles with Team #1 in preparation for an upcoming Fellowship resurgence in 2018.
Match 5. “The Maniacal Jack Krueger (with Diabolical Scott Ledeur & Annabel) v. Buck Nasty. W – Krueger
Teamwork pays even amongst the mentally deranged. Most guys Krueger’s size fold quickly when in the ring with Buck Nasty. Krueger’s mental state makes him insensible to pain. He also has the advantage of honed ring skills and a bizarre partner, Scott Ledeur. It’s true that Scott was wandering around mumbling to his own demons through most of the match but when it counted he was able to give a small assist which clinched the roll up pin for his friend. Nasty is more than frustrated. We wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves Showcase at this point. (As unpleasant as he is, that would be a loss to the company).
Match 6: Heavyweight Championship Match: Chris Matrix (C) v. S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs. W – Matrix
Ribs is a champion in his own right and feels he should have a singles title to add to his epic tag team championship reign. Doctor Ozone came to the match uninvited and pleaded to be allowed to help. He was wholly rejected by Mr. Ribs. After a hard-fought beginning of the match Matrix super kicked Ribs into Referee Roberts who was knocked out. Matrix pinned Ronnie but there was no official to count. Ribs sneaked out and dropped Matrix on his face. He then brought in a chair and was about to finish The Champion when Montero and Cruise extracted their revenge and spoiled his chance. Matrix had enough time to recover and put Ribs in a tilt-a-whirl and a pin just when the referee came to.
