Soldier of God Ronnie Ribs is an intense person. We recently got 2 minutes of his time after a Showcase Pro Wrestling show in Woonsocket, RI. The guy is shot out of a cannon. Take a look at this. He’s an original.

Professor’s Note: Hats off to the wrestlers who worked this show. The sun was broiling. We were dying just standing out in the sun and filming.
Match videos will be available after 4:00 p.m EST 23 Sep. at our YouTube channel.
Match 1. Kid Reflex Eric Dylan v. Carlos. W – Carlos
Dylan showed his technical skills in this match. We can see that he is finding his stride again after being away for a while. Carlos managed to escape multiple holds (barely). Carlos body slammed The Kid and then vaulted over the ropes for a splash and pin. Dylan then made a tasteless comment in regard to referee Muldoon and left in a huff.
Sergeant Muldoon did a brief interview with his niece regarding her recent vision quest and new direction when Dylan sneaked in from behind and attacked both of them at once. Kid Reflex got a severe beat down for his troubles.
Match 2. Tag Team Championship: Team #1 (Superstar Shawn Candido & Richie Rich) v. The Fellowship (S.O.G. Ronnie Ribs & Dante). W – The Fellowship (DQ)
Ronnie Ribs and Apprentice Dante objected to The Superstar’s reasonable requests for timeouts and his complaints when they pulled his hair. After a spirited contest in intense heat and sun, Dante entered the ring illegally and gave Candido the big boot while Ribs held him. Richie Rich justifiably entered and KO’d the punk and Ronnie with one of the belts. For some reason Referee Belair called the match a DQ for The Fellowship. Team #1 deservedly remain champions.
Match 3. “Diabolical” Scott Ledeur (with Annabelle) v. Chris Matrix. W – Ledeur
These two former friends put on an epic battle despite the dangerous heat levels in the black canvas ring. These men are evenly matched. It could have gone either way. Today it was the Madman’s turn. He dropped his ex-friend on his face on the sizzling canvas and got the pin.
Match 4. The Convict v. Kid Curry. W – Kid Curry
The Convicts had been in retirement for well over a year. We were surprised to see that Riker’s Island officials re-instituted the work release program. The Convict brought his best jailhouse skills to the party, confusing Kid Curry throughout the entire match. Despite the Convict’s eye gouge, Curry managed to scoop up the inmate and pin him definitively.

SPW Tag Team Champions Team Number One
We have had the privilege of being permitted to record nearly 500 match videos at Showcase Pro Wrestling. Being a regional independent promotion, views are in the modest range, usually between one hundred to several hundred for most videos.
A notable exception is the debut match of a new female star, Madame Butterfly. This video has been on YouTube for 2 months and has received more than 107,000 views.
Women’s Wrestling has really arrived.
This Saturday night is Marchiversary XI which celebrates 11 years of Showcase Pro Wrestling. We consider SPW our home promotion and could not be more excited to share this special night with Chris Blackheart, Sergeant Muldoon, Mr. Frank Rocha, and the amazing athletes who make this company a special organization. We hope you join the festivities in Taunton, MA. See you there.
Nature Boy Gary Gold will retire on December 3rd after a prolific career spanning 35 years. Gary is one of the last working wrestlers trained by Killer Kowalski. Mr. Gold was inducted into the New England Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2008. We’ve had the pleasure of seeing The Nature Boy in action over the past several years at Showcase Pro Wrestling. He’s given so much to wrestling its hard to overstate his impact. We’ll be in Attleboro to bid Mr. Gold a fond farewell as he enters the ring one last time, accompanied by his long-time manager John Cena Sr.
Godspeed Gary Gold.
