Before the beginning of the show, a moment of silence was given for Peggy “Nana” Paiva as the event was dedicated in her memory following her passing earlier in the week.
– In the night’s opener The Trailblazers (“All Good” Anthony Greene & “The Native American” Tomahawk) defeated The Underground Anarchy (“Slamdance” Tim Lennox & “Bam” Brandon Behm) w/ “Black Magic” Sean Feeney when Greene pinned Behm after a reverse cutter off the ropes.
– NCW 2014 Rookie of the Year Christian Casanova d. “The Mastodon” Brick Mastone with a small package in a very hard fought battle.
In what was supposed to be a fun Pembroke High School exhibition between students of PHS and the Junior Class President MJ Baird and Cam Deegan turned into a sickening bullying attack by “Ruthless” Ruy Batello, who interrupted the contest to berate the kids who were just trying to have a good time for their class. Tom Warren, an alumni of Pembroke High himself got right in Ruy’s face to stop the situation from escalating, resulting in Batello shoving Warren across the ring to the mat. In a moment of bravery Warren delivered a loud smack to his face, and before Batello could deliver a ‘Portuguese Drop’ on Tom the Lumberjake intervened to a huge homecoming reaction. Before things could get any crazier, Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley made Ruy and Jake’s scheduled match a Pembroke Street Fight later tonight.
– “Dynamic” Jon Thornhill defeated “Dastardly” Doug Summers and “Beautiful” Buddy Romano in a Triple Threat Match after Thornhill pinned Romano with a picture perfect 450 splash.
– NCW New England Champion Rob “The Giant” Araujo d. “Sensational” Scott Levesque w/ “High Class” Rich Bass to retain the NCW New England Title after Bass accidentally clocked Levesque with a clipboard designed for Araujo’s skull. With Levesque’s scheduled opponent “RIOT” Kellan Thomas not cleared to compete, Araujo was more than willing to put his championship on the line against the very capable member of Bass’ Cartel.
– In a wild Pembroke Street Fight that saw both men brawl all over Pembroke’s gymnasium Lumberjake w/ MJ Baird d. “Ruthless” Ruy Batello with his own ‘Portuguese Drop’ despite assistance from the Underground Anarchy.
