– “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger w/ Sean Feeney & Big Bully Rezner d. Rob “The Giant” Araujo.
– “The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople d. Dijack w/ MTE after hitting the whammy bar on the impressive Dijack, making his NCW debut.
Two time former Heavyweight Champion Buddy Romano came out to the ring, speaking for the first time since returning to NCW in June. Buddy talked about his past as NCW Champion, as well as his long standing rivalry with Doug Summers. After running down Doug’s business practices Romano then set his sights on Pacifico, who attempted to collect on Summers bounty last month in Bristol. Still standing strong, Romano said it was going to take a lot more than that to finish him off. He was then interrupted by Doc Ozone and his new client “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy, who opted to collect the bounty for themselves if Romano was still standing.
– “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy w/ Doc Ozone d. Buddy Romano via count out after Romano’s injured arm prevented him from making it in before the ten count. Following the match Romano was once again attacked by Pacifico- who once again applied his ‘crossface chickenwing’ on Buddy.
– The Inglorious Dastards (“Terrible” Tony Caruso & “The Beast” Brandon Behm) d. David & Eddie Loomis to win the NCW Tag Team Championship after Pacifico returned to the ring, stalking and attacking Eddie Loomis allowing the Dastards to capitalize and win the championship.
– “All Good” Anthony Greene d. “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva in their Last Man Standing Match after delivering a devastating piledriver off the top rope onto a table set up in the ring. After their brutal match-up, Greene barely was able to make the ten count, defeating Paiva.
– Steve “The Turtle” Weiner & Tomahawk d. Maniacally Twisted (“The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed & the Shadow) w/ Sean Feeney in tag team action, giving a big win to the debuting Tomahawk.
– “The Juice” JT Dunn d. NCW New England Champion “Simply God’s Best” GA West w/ Doc Ozone in a hard fought match. While Dunn believed he had won the New England title West reminded him that this was not a NE title match and that the championship was not on the line.
– The Lumberjake d. “Dastardly” Doug Summers with a devastating choke slam, giving LBJ one of the biggest wins of his young career. Following the match the Dastards attempted to attack Lumberjake, only to be thwarted by Dean Livsley, who laid out “The Beast” with a big splash.
– NCW Heavyweight Champion Scotty “Won’t Die” Vegas d. “RIOT” Kellan Thomas to retain the NCW Championship after Vegas used the ring bell hammer on Thomas behind the referees back. Following the match Kellan and Kepler gained a measure of revenge by knocking the champion down, and celebrating with the NCW Heavyweight Title.
NORWOOD– On Friday night August 2nd Northeast Championship Wrestling’s 2013 wrestling season continues when we make our return to the Elks Lodge [152 Winslow Avenue] in Norwood, MA when Commissioner Doug Summers presents Summers Slam! Competing in a seasonal format from February through November, for sixteen years NCW has presented a unique night of entertainment for fans bringing forth our larger than life characters, dynamic storylines, and incredible athleticism all while providing a unique experience for fans of all ages.
On August 2nd the fans in Norwood will have the rare opportunity to decide who will wrestle the NCW Heavyweight Champion at Summers Slam when the fans in attendance will choose the opponent for “The Maine Event” Scotty Vegas for the NCW title. The three competitors eligible for voting are the two time former Heavyweight Champion “The Juice” JT Dunn, the reigning NCW New England Champion “Simply God’s Best” GA West, and the ever popular “RIOT” Kellan Thomas who will of course have the trusty puppet Kepler by his side. Whoever the fans choose, Vegas has stated that he is ready and waiting to dominate the competition as NCW’s first ever Triple Crown Champion.
The “benevolent” and “gracious” NCW Commissioner Emperor “Dastardly” Doug Summers, having the nerve to name the event after himself, has set up a coup August 2nd pitting himself against the wilderness warrior Lumberjake while also setting up his Inglorious Dastards (“Terrible” Tony Caruso & “The Beast” Brandon Behm) with a Tag Team Championship Match against the NCW Tag Team Champions David & Eddie Loomis. Can Summers and the Inglorious Dastards secure a clean sweep when NCW returns to Norwood? Not if the former Commissioner Dean Livsley has anything to say about it as he positions himself against the man who screwed him out of his job as NCW’s sheriff.
Also appearing in Norwood will be the NCW 2012 Rookie of the Year “All Good” Anthony Greene taking on “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva in a Last Man Standing Match, “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger and Maniacally Twisted, Steve “The Turtle” Weiner, Rob “The Giant” Araujo, the debuting Tomahawk and many more!

Tickets for this event will be available at the door with $10 for adults and $5 for kids twelve and under. As always card is subject to change.

Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Bristol VFW Post after an eleven year absence this past Saturday night for NCW’s Red, White, & Bruised. A big thanks to the VFW, Lou Francis, and their support as we look forward to returning to Bristol in October.
– “The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople d. Kevin Perry with the ‘whammy bar’ in a hard-hitting back and forth match up. The former New England Champion showed a surprising mean streak in the match, showing his frustration with losing his New England title back in April.
– The Legion of Green(e) (“All Good” Anthony Greene & Steve “The Turtle” Weiner) d. Maniacally Twisted (“The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed & the Shadow) w/ Sean Feeney in tag team action. Following the match “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva arrived out of nowhere, delivering a vicious piledriver to Greene.
– The former NCW Commissioner Dean Livsley came out to the ring, calling out “Dastardly” Doug Summers. Since getting screwed out of his job at NCW’s 16 year REUNION, Dean has remained quiet. But after seeing all the chaos over the last three months it’s time for him to take a stand. Summers finally responded along with his Inglorious Dastards, stating that NCW has never been better with him at the helm. However, if Dean really wanted to get a piece of him he would first have to go through “Terrible” Tony Caruso & “The Beast” Brandon Behm in a gauntlet match and then, and only then would he get the opportunity to wrestle Doug Summers if he survived the onslaught of the Dastards.
– Buddy Romano d. Rocco Abruzzi with a DDT, as Abruzzi attempted to take the bounty put forth on Buddy Romano’s head. Following the match Romano was attacked by Pacifico, who laid the former NCW Champion out with a crossface chickenwing incapacitating him.
– Rob “The Giant” Araujo d. “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger w/ Sean Feeney.
– “Dastardly” Doug Summers d. Dean Livsley in the Inglorious Gauntlet, after “Terrible” Tony Caruso and “The Beast” Brandon Behm intentionally disqaulified themselves from the match in an effort to punish the former Commissioner. After a valiant comeback, Livsley fell victim to another ‘Beautiful Disaster’ from Summers.
– “The Juice” JT Dunn (w/ Mike Graca, recovering from a concussion) came to the ring for his New England Championship Match against “Simply God’s Best” GA West, only to be interrupted by Doc Ozone along with his flunkie Nick Varsity (Vic Victory). Doc O stated that Dunn didn’t deserve to wrestle the New England Champion yet, and instead handpicked Dunn’s opponent for the night– “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy!
– “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy w/ Doc Ozone d. “The Juice” JT Dunn w/ Mike Graca after Ozone and his flunkie Nick Varsity distracted the two time former NCW Heavyweight Champion.
– “RIOT” Kellan Thomas w/ Kepler d. “Deathproof” Aaron Epic in a great back and forth.
– NCW Tag Team Champions the Loomis Brothers d. the BLT to retain the NCW Tag Team Championship after David Loomis nailed the Lumberjake with a bicycle kick. Following the match “Dastardly” Doug Summers and his crew of sympathizers arrived on scene, attacking David & Eddie Loomis until Dean Livsley and the BLT returned to even the odds against Summers and his crew. Begrudingly, the Loomis Brothers and BLT shook hands following the match.
On June 21st, 2013 Scotty “Won’t Die” Vegas did the unthinkable when he “”defeated” JT Dunn to become NCW’s first Triple Crown Champion, a feat he only achieved thanks to a legal loophole allowed by NCW Commissioner “Dastardly” Doug Summers.
PLUS the return of Pulp Fiction with highlights from NCW Aftermath!
– NCW ring announcer “Toxic” Tom Warren welcomed everyone to Aftermath, and then announced the new Commissioner “Dynamite” Doug Summers to ringside for his State of NCW Address. Before he began Summers welcomed the entire NCW roster to the ring to directly address his staff. Doug’s first order of business was officially signing his two young students to NCW contracts– revealing their true identities as “Terrible” Tony Caruso and “The Beast” Brandon Behm, with Doug stripping Dean Livsley of the “Beast” moniker. Doug then rechristened himself “Dastardly” Doug Summers, embracing the jeers from the fans while officially proclaiming his crew the Inglorious Dastards. Finally Summers also promised that at Total Elimination Buddy Romano would return to NCW, teaming with his group against Livsley’s team of the BLT and the Loomis Brothers.
As the NCW roster returned to the locker room, Summers kept Mike Paiva back for the opening contest, robbing “The Original Showoff” of his customary entrance.
– “RIOT” Kellan Thomas w/ Kepler d. “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva after rolling through on Paiva’s attempted ‘sleazeball special’, trapping Paiva’s shoulders to the mat for the three count.
– NCW Tag Team Champions the Loomis Brothers d. Maniacally Twisted [“The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed & the Shadow] w/ Sean Feeney when David Loomis hit the bicycle kick on Creed.
– “The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople d. “Jiving” Jimmy Capone and the Roadblock in a Triple Threat Match, with Sople building up an impressive win/loss record this Season.
– NCW New England Champion “Simply God’s Best” GA West w/ Doc Ozone d. Mike Graca Jr. in a great match to retain the New England title, barely getting by the tenacious rookie. Following the match GA West made an unofficial challenge to his former rival JT Dunn, the mentor of Graca.
– By keeping Dean on the NCW roster, Summers forced Livsley to compete at NCW Aftermath, taking on Michael Tootsie Esquire. With MTE coming to the ring in street clothes, the former Connecticut Champion believed he had no reason to gear up against the former Commissioner.
– Dean Livsley d. MTE in quick fashion, completely obliterating Tootsie.
– The Inglorious Dastards [“Dastardly” Doug Summers, “Terrible” Tony Caruso, & “The Beast” Brandon Behm] d. Rob the Giant, Steve “The Turtle” Weiner, & the Lumberjake in Six Man Tag Team action when Buddy Romano returned to the ring, assisting Doug Summers against Lumberjake and allowing Summers and company to hit their triad of finishers on the former Tag Team Champion.
– “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello d. “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger w/ Sean Feeney with ‘ruination’ in a hard hitting match-up. Krueger attempeed to eliminate Batello early on with his steel chair, but the former Heavyweight Champion was able to turn the tide despite interference from Feeney.
– Scotty “Won’t Die” Vegas d. “The Juice” JT Dunn by count out in a brutal display of athleticism, winning the NCW Heavyweight Championship on a tecnicality stemming from a stipulation that was added last year during Dunn’s series of matches with Buddy Romano, where the title could potentially change hands via count outs or disqualifications. A dejected Dunn remained at ringside following the match, unable to process how Vegas shamefully stole the championship.
