Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Norwood Elks Lodge this past Friday night for the final event of our 2014 wrestling season with WrestleFest X! With all three championships on the line, the Boston Massacre III, and a historic Season Cup Match WrestleFest X could go down as one of the biggest events in NCW history.

Commentators: Tim Kilgore & NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley
Referees: Redd Roche, Mike Dubie, TJ Richter, & David Montenaro

NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley kicked off the night, thanking everyone for coming out to the 2014 finale. After offering to help out Tim Kilgore on commentary for the evening with Tom Warren on holiday, Livsley announced that in memory of his mentor, trainer, and friend the NCW Season Cup would be dubbed the Ox Baker Memorial Cup, with the winner receiving an opportunity against any NCW Championship during the 2015 Season.
– The Trailblazers (“All Good” Anthony Greene & “The Native American” Tomahawk) d. Crossfit (“Pretty Boy” Derek Andrews & “The Fittest Man” Dan Terry) in the opening match of the evening.
– Triplelicious won the Ox Baker Memorial Cup, eliminating Christian Casanova to win the match and earn a title shot during the 2015 year. Trip was thought to have been eliminated earlier in the match but actually went under the bottom rope to avoid elimination. After Casanova tossed Ian Griffin from the match, a rejuvenated Trip blindsided the dancing superstar to steal the win.
Order of entry–
- Shay Cash
- Ian Griffin
- Christian Casanova
- Steve “The Turtle” Weiner
- Frank Champion
– NCW New England Champion Rob “The Giant” Araujo d. “Beautiful” Buddy Romano to retain the New England Championship in a hard fought back and forth match. Romano arrived on scene looking more flamboyant than he ever has in an NCW ring, promising to become the second Triple Crown Winner in NCW’s history. After catching Araujo after a misplaced cannonball Romano attempted to use the ropes for leverage nearly giving him the victory. Luckily Redd Roche caught Buddy in the act, refused to call the pin, and allowed “The Giant” to roll the stunned Romano up for the win all while clutching the coveted New England Title.
– In the career vs. career Boston Massacre Match, “Dastardly” Doug Summers (w/ Ashley Vox) defeated Deputy Commissioner Richard Pacifico after a ‘beautiful disaster’ onto a steel chair to end Pacifico’s wrestling career. This match will go down in NCW history as one of the most brutal ever, with both men going through tables, beaten with chairs, kendo sticks, and assault via power drill leading to the bloody finale with a defiant Pacifico spitting in Doug Summers’ face before falling to a third ‘beautiful disaster’ after Summers’ utilized the deformed chair.
Following the match, the NCW locker room poured out to pay their respects to Pacifico as the Norwood fans gave a rousing applause for the retired Pacifico.
During the closing moments of intermission, Lumberjake was blindsided by “Simply God’s Best” GA West and Doc Ozone while being distracted by “Ruthless” Ruy Batello, as West continued to take out the competition before the WrestleFest main event.
– Santa Claus d. “Black Magic” Sean Feeney with a vicious chokeslam. After regaining his hat from Feeney, Santa was barely able to celebrate before the Underground Anarchy (“Slamdance” Tim Lennox and “Bam” Brandon Behm) attacked Old Saint Nick, bringing the Loomis Brothers out to make the save.
– David & Eddie Loomis defeated the Underground Anarchy to win the NCW Tag Team Championship when Eddie Loomis pinned Behm to win the titles after months of the Anarchy getting the better of the Loomis Brothers.
– “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva d. “Ruthless” Ruy Batello with the ‘Showoff Special’ (codebreaker) in a hard hitting grudge match that saw the rival pull out all the stops against one another.
– NCW Heavyweight Champion “RIOT” Kellan Thomas (w/ Kepler) defeated “Simply God’s Best” GA West (w/ Doc Ozone) and the Lumberjake to retain the NCW Championship after pinning West with a vicious ‘Kryptonite Krunch’. During the match, Ruy Batello returned on scene to injure Lumberjake’s shoulder further, effectively taking him out of the match.
Following the match, “RIOT” commended both challengers for their efforts, and promised this wouldn’t be the last time Lumberjake would wrestle for the Heavyweight Title. Both men then shook hands as “Don’t Stop Beleiving” played out the end of NCW WrestleFest X.
