Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Norwood Lodge of Elks this past Friday night in Norwood for the final event of the NCW 2016 Season. A HUGE thank you to all of our fans who have supported NCW this year, and thanks to Brian Fagen of the Norwood Elks and John Balis of the Jacob Jones VFW Post for their support.
Born and raised in the Heights of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, the boy who would one day become Triplelicious learned at an early age that if you wanted something bad enough you’d just have to take it yourself. The truth is that despite his thuggish demeanor, abrasive attitude, and questionable morals “Hispanic” Heriberto Heredia [*] is one of the smartest men in NCW history, and his year long journey to reclaim his place on the NCW throne is about to reach its apex.
This past Friday night Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Elks Lodge in Norwood, MA for the 2013 Big City Rumble, with the winner earning the right to wrestle for the NCW Heavyweight Championship December 14th at WrestleFest IX.
This past Friday night Northeast Championship Wrestling returned to the Elks Lodge in Norwood, MA for a huge night of wrestling action with NCW’s SUMMERS SLAM, headlined by “RIOT” Kellan Thomas wrestling Scotty “Won’t Die” Vegas for the NCW Heavyweight Championship after being voted as the FANS CHOICE in a landslide victory.

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.

After conferring with officials in the back Bobbi Rossi had the match re-started, allowing Kellan to roll McCarthy up for the win.
– In a surreal experience NCW Commissioner “Dastardly” Doug Summers, “Terrible” Tony Caruso, “The Beast” Brandon Behm, & the returning Buddy Romano were greeted with more cheers than boos when they arrived at the Westerly Armory for Total Elimination, only to see the normally popular Dean Livsley garner a mixed reaction himself as he brought the Loomis Brothers and the BLT out for a confrontation with the Inglorious Dastards. The interview quickly devolved into a pull apart brawl with all the participants of Total Elimination.
– “The Juice” JT Dunn & Mike Graca d. “Simply God’s Best” GA West & Vic Victory w/ Doc Ozone in tag team action after West challenged Dunn and Graca to a tag match, with him becoming a protege to his own rookie. Following the match a frustrated GA West also laid out his partner.

– 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.

– 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.

– Dean “The Beast” Livsley called out “Dynamite” Doug Summers, looking to cut him off at the chase before Summers made his usual appearance crying foul. Livsley once again wanted a crack at Summers in the ring, and this time Doug finally relented.

– “The Heater” Kevin Perry w/ Mike Paiva d. Anthony Greene & Hunter Ward. Before the beginning of the match, Perry’s tag team partner Rob the Giant was nowhere to be found.

Focusing on the less experienced Greene, Perry took advantage and then used Mike Paiva to leverage a tainted victory over the popular Ward.
– “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello & “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva d. Eddie & David Loomis
after Batello crushed Eddie Loomis with a massive splash. A disgusted David Marxxx-Loomis stormed off after the loss, while “The Portuguese Sensation” gave his tag team partner a ‘ruination’ for his troubles.
– “Simply the Best” GA West w/ Doc Ozone & Mark Moment d. Steve “The Turtle” Weiner w/ Doug Summers in a No Disqualification, Falls Count Anywhere Match after West originally challenged Doug Summers to a brawl. Summers, already competing in the tournament told West he had nothing to prove, and nothing he could say would change his mind. Weiner came out to defend the honor of his BFF, prompting “Simply the Best” to take his frustrations out on “The Turtle”. In the end it was Summers own inadvertent distraction which allowed Weiner to be pinned by West.
– “The Juice” JT Dunn & “The RIOT” Kellan Thomas d. Todd Sople & Doug Summers to advance to the Finals. Following the match, a knocked out Doug Summers was carried out by head of security John Balis, referee Joe Blazer, and Steve “The Turtle”.

As Paiva celebrated, handing off his New England Championship belt to Perry, a video began playing on the monitor, showing footage from October 29th, 2011, the night Perry turned on his best friend in Brockton, MA. The footage quickly revealed that Dean “The Beast” Livsley asked Kevin to turn on Robbie, and join Zero Tolerance as a mole for him for the last year.

– NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley kicked off NCW FALLOUT, celebrating the birthday of the 2012 Big City Rumble winner Steve “The Turtle” Weiner, as Weiner prepared to challenge Buddy Romano for the NCW Heavyweight Championship. Livsley was then interrupted by JC Marxxx and David Marxxx-Loomis. JC wanted to ensure that his adopted son would continue to back up Zero Tolerance, especially after the tumultuous past few months between Loomis and Romano. David agreed to back ZT, on the condition that he gets to become Heavyweight Champion again, not Buddy. Marxxx relented, but only if David defeated his little brother Eddie Loomis tonight in Riverside.
– David Marxxx-Loomis w/ JC Marxxx d. Eddie Loomis, though at several points during the match, David hesitated against his younger brother before finally putting him away.
– The BLT (Big Lovable Team) of “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello & Lumberjake d. Christopher James & Michael Tootsie Esquire in tag team action, defeating them with the ‘cold cut combo’, an in-stereo ‘ruination’/’log ride’ combo.
– “The Heater” Kevin Perry w/ Mike Paiva d. Rob the Giant to become the #1 contender for the NCW New England Championship. Before their scheduled Triple Threat Match for the NE Championship, “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva decided that he would not participate the in 2 on 1 beatdown on the Giant, feeling it was an unfair fight. Livsley then came out to ringside and told Paiva that if he wasn’t wrestling tonight then the match would then become a #1 contenders match.
– “The Juice” JT Dunn & Anthony “AG” Greene defeated “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger & “The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed when Dunn knocked Creed out cold, and forced him to submit while AG prevented Krueger from making the save.
– “Dynamite” Doug Summers d. Too Shay with the ‘beautiful disaster’ in brutal fashion, after a dejected Summers talked about how his best friend was wrestling for the Heavyweight Championship, and he was definitely not bitter by having to wrestle right after intermission. Despite his insistence, Doug took his frustrations out on Shay and despite Shay’s best efforts “Dynamite” was victorious.
– “The RIOT” Kellan Thomas d. Scotty “By GOD” Vegas in a hard fought match which saw both men brawl all over the Riverside Legion Hall. Following the match an enraged Vegas promised that this wasn’t over with.
– One half of the NCW Tag Team Champions “The Unequaled One” Todd Sople & his interim partner Pacifico d. Triplelicious & “The Barrington Bulldozer” John Munroe after Dean “The Beast” Livsley forced Sople to defend his championship even with partner Gunar Rowe was unable to appear. Sople picked up the victory after blind-tagging into the ring, and blindsiding an unknowing Triplelicious.
– NCW Heavyweight Champion Buddy Romano w/ JC Marxxx d. Steve “The Turtle” Weiner w/ “Dynamite” Doug Summers to retain the Heavyweight Championship, hitting his own version of ‘kingdom hearts’ on Weiner. Romano almost lost the Championship twice after official Dan Tanaka was knocked out from an errant splash by “Turtle”. Summers then went to assist his partner (we think), hitting Romano with a foreign object. After Weiner hit ‘kingdom hearts’ on Buddy, Livsley called out “The Juice” JT Dunn as the referee, going back to when Livsley deputized Dunn back in July at Summer Meltdown. Dunn nearly counted the three only for Romano to barely get his shoulder up. “Turtle” then hit a second ‘kingdom hearts’, which seemed to keep Romano down save for a foot barely making the ropes as Dunn counted three. While JT missed the foot, on the outside Tanaka didn’t. As Steve began celebrating with the championship Tanaka returned to the ring to restart the match. Buddy then threw Weiner right into Dunn, allowing him to hit Weiner’s own move on him for the tainted win.
Following the show, JT and the entire NCW locker room sang Steve Happy Birthday, with Steve following it up himself with a rousing rendition of Journey’s “Lights”.
