#REUNION2013: Money Donated, A Title Change, & The New Boss in Town

reunion

Last night at Northeast Championship Wrestling’s 16 year REUNION a packed house at the Norwood Elks Lodge saw a great night of wrestling action featuring a shocking title change and a new regime taking hold following the epic Norwood Street Fight between “Dynamite” Doug Summers and Dean “The Beast” Livsley.

First and foremost however thanks to the matching gift offered by Bank of America NCW will be donating $300 to the One Fund Boston, benefiting victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. For that a HUGE thank you goes out to all who came out to Norwood for a great cause.

With detailed results are forthcoming it can be said that NCW now has a new boss in charge after Summers defeated Livsley in their Norwood Street Fight, picking up the tainted win when two unidentified individuals rushed the ring during the match, saving Summers and attacking the Commissioner. After a spear and a hard corner splash from the assailants, the bigger of the two unleashed an impressive powerslam on “The Beast”, allowing Summers to easily hit ‘beautiful disaster’ for the win. The NCW locker room then poured out to help their fallen friend, causing Summers and company to flee through the front door.

Though NCW Heavyweight Champion “The Juice” JT Dunn successfully defended his NCW title against Scotty “Won’t Die” Vegas last night in Norwood, Vegas came awfully close to winning the Heavyweight title, only being thwarted due to referee Redd Roche being knocked out during the match. Believing he is the rightful NCW Champion, Vegas was pleased to see a new boss put into power as he sought out a rematch with “The Juice” for June 21st in Norwood.

Kevin Perry found himself unable to retain the New England title at REUNION, as “Simply God’s Best” GA West and Doc Ozone screwed over both Perry and Doc’s alleged new client Too Shay to win the NE Championship in a grueling Triple Threat Match last night. Making everyone believe the two were on the outs, Ozone pulled off the rouse perfectly after “accidentally” walloping Shay with the title belt, allowing West to pick up the victory.

Detailed results to follow…

NCW 2013 Episode #6: Ready for REUNION

Things continue to escalate between “Simply God’s Best” GA West and Doc Ozone, as Doc O brings a new client into the mix to challenge his nephew and #1 Contender to Kevin Perry’s New England Championship.

“The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva takes matters into his own hands after another loss to the NCW 2012 Rookie of the Year “All Good” Anthony Greene.

The Loomis Brothers and the Lumberjake continue to have issues with Maniacally Twisted as they hold the NCW Tag Team titles hostage, leading to the surprising return of “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello!

#REUNION2013: The 16 Year Celebration Comes to Norwood

16yearREUNION

On Friday night April 26th Northeast Championship Wrestling celebrates our 16 year REUNION event when we return to the Elks Lodge in Norwood, MA for this huge night of wrestling action. Dating back to our earliest beginnings in 1997, NCW has grown into one of New England’s premiere wrestling promotions  while presenting a unique and unorthodox view of the pro wrestling world.

When NCW returns to the Norwood Elks Lodge we will see all three championships defended, a grudge match for the ages, the return of “The Portuguese Sensation”, and an anniversary shellebration to remember. If there is one place to be April 26 it will be NCW’s 16 year REUNION.

REUNION_NCWtitle

In the world of Scotty Vegas, sacrifice is necessary. Living and dying by the squared circle of NCW for the past seven and a half years, the sacrifice Vegas has given can never be repaid. He’s accepted this, and continues to forge ahead despite the pain and suffering he has endured. Following his loss to “RIOT” Kellan Thomas last November at WrestleFest VII, a frustrated Scotty Vegas attempted to walk away from NCW for good. Not willing to just let Vegas out of his contract, Commissioner Livsley forced Vegas to return as a ring announcer for the 2013 Season. Committed to do what he had to do, Vegas forged ahead. It was only when the NCW Heavyweight Champion disrespected Scotty that a spark was reignited inside the former New England Champion.

After being ejected from ringside as a ring announcer Vegas returned following Dunn’s title defense in Norwood, blindsiding the Champion and leaving him lying in the ring. At NCW’s 16 year REUNION Vegas returns to the ring with focus, drive, and determination. All the suffering he’s been dealt with will be rained down upon “The Juice”, giving Dunn his toughest title challenge to date.

REUNION_streetfight

June 2007. It was on this day that then-NCW Heavyweight Champion “Dynamite” Doug Summers wrestled the #1 contender Dean “The Beast” Livsley in Willimantic, Connecticut. It was on this day that Doug Summers felt his reign as NCW champion was coming to an end. Summers will be the first to tell you his fears that night, but the respect since then has faded away and replaced with disdain and disrespect.

What made Doug Summers snap last year on his tag team partner Steve Weiner? Was it his frustration with not becoming NCW’s first Triple Crown Champion? Was it being lost in the shuffle? Was it as simple as being overlooked by Commissioner Livsley during his war with Zero Tolerance? Regardless of the specifics it has brought us here where after 3 years of retirement Dean “The Beast” will step into the ring one more time to teach Doug Summers a lesson he will never forget at NCW’s 16 year REUNION.

The stipulations have also been announced for their Norwood Street Fight, and we know that whoever walks out of Norwood the winner will also be the NCW Commissioner. To ensure a fair fight and a true winner, if anyone interferes in the match they will be terminated from NCW immediately.

REUNION_TRIPLETHREAT

GA West has had one goal this Season, and that is to finally attain gold in NCW after narrowly defeating JT Dunn as the 2012 Wrestler of the Year. Unfortunately for West his business relationship with his uncle Doc Ozone has gone south, bringing “Simply God’s Best” onto a depressing losing streak just as he is about to challenge Kevin Perry for the New England Championship at REUNION. After leaving GA high and dry at March Madness, Doc Ozone introduced his latest client Too Shay at the Fight in Foxboro, assisting Shay in getting a huge victory over West.

With Shay’s big win, NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley  has agreed to add Shay to the New England Championship match in Norwood, making a Triple Threat Match under Sudden Death Rules. With Doc Ozone promise that the manager makes the man, GA West’s quest to upend Kevin Perry’s reign as New England Champion will go unfulfilled once more.

REUNION_taginvite

“The Maniacal” Jack Krueger hoped he had seen the last of “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello. In the two months since Krueger & “The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed put Batello on the injured list the cult of Krueger has grown, all while stalking the the NCW Tag Team Champions David & Eddie Loomis and making the Lumberjake’s life a living hell. At the Fight in Foxboro everything came to ahead for Maniacally Twisted as “The Portuguese Sensation” made a shocking reappearance, looking better than ever in his quest to get revenge on the men who put him down. With Krueger & Creed still holding the NCW Tag Team Championship belts hostage, the Loomis Brothers are fuming for another chance to get their belts back, all while pushing back the challenge of the psychotic Pacifico & Big Bully Rezner, who have once again singled out the champs for their own personal game of punishment.

REUNION_riotmike

While “RIOT” Kellan Thomas is no stranger to tag team competition, the former NCW Tag Team Champion does need to rely on his tag team partner to show for their matches. At the Fight in Foxboro Thomas was left high and dry when “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy failed to show for their match with Pacifico & Big Bully Rezner, forcing “RIOT” to change his gameplan against the unpredictable Pacifico. Left 2 on 1, Thomas went down in Foxboro and the only person he blames is McCarthy. REUNION will see these two talented individuals settle their differences the only way they know how– in the ring.

REUNION_turtlevselsag

8 years ago Steve “The Turtle” Weiner burst onto the New England wrestling scene, changing the wrestling landscape forever. For the man known as El Saguaro, he could care less about the career of “The Turtle” or his exploits over the last eight years. For Saguaro, his eyes are squarely set on the future and what that means for him and him alone. After picking up a TAINTed victory at the Fight in Foxboro, Saguaro heads into NCW’s 16 year REUNION with one goal in mind, making turtle soup out of Weiner and becoming one of NCW’s most valuable commodities.

REUNION_PAIVASOPLE

“The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva has been off to a rough start this Season, losing to “The Juice” JT Dunn and going 0-3 against the 2012 Rookie of the Year Anthony Greene. Taking his frustrations out on Greene Paiva laid out AG with two vicious piledrivers, delivering one right onto AG’s Rookie Award. This brought out the former NCW Tag Team Champion “The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople, who had enough of Paiva’s bullying. Challenging him to a match at REUNION, Sople looks to rough up “The Showoff” while Paiva looks to finally reverse his fortunes by getting a victory over “The Hellraiser”.

Pacifico w/ Big Bully Rezner d. “RIOT” Kellan Thomas w/ Kepler after Bully interefered on Pacifico’s behalf. Originally scheduled to be a tag team match, Kellan’s tag team partner Mike McCarthy did not appear for his match, leaving “RIOT” against both guys.

“All Good” Anthony Greene d. “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva, making him 3-0 against the former NCW New England Champion. A frustrated Paiva attacked Greene following the bell, and landed a vicious piledriver on the 2012 Rookie of the Year.

Todd Sople then came out to help AG, and challenged Paiva to a match at NCW’s 16 year REUNION.

El Saguaro d. Steve “The Turtle” Weiner after a low blow behind the referee’s back.

– Tom Warren announced “Dynamite” Doug Summers and NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley for their contract signing, with Summers finally announcing the stipulations for him stepping into the ring at REUNION. In this intense exchange between both men we now know that;

  1. This match will be held under Street Fight rules. No count outs, no disqualifications, and anything goes.
  2. If any wrestler, manager, official, or employee of Northeast Championship Wrestling intervenes in the contest they will be terminated from NCW immediately.

 Despite his reservations Livsley agreed to all the stipulations, and promised to teach Summers a lesson he’ll never forget April 26 in Norwood.

Contract Signing

“Simply God’s Best” GA West came out for his match, but was soon interrupted by Doc Ozone. Doc O talked about firing GA in Riverside, and said that the manager was bigger than the wrestler and could make anyone into a champion. Ozone then announced his client for the evening– Too Shay!

– Too Shay w/ Doc Ozone d. “Simply God’s Best” GA West in a huge upset after Doc O cost his former charge the match.

Rob the Giant d. “Dynamite” Doug Summers when Dean “The Beast” Livsley restarted the match after Summers used a foreign object on Giant to win originally.

The Loomis Brothers d. Maniacally Twisted w/ Sean Feeney via disqualification when Krueger & Creed used the Tag Team Championship belts as a weapon against David & Eddie Loomis. This brought out the Shadow to help join in the beat down, leading to the Lumberjake coming out for some revenge of his own. The tide quickly turned when Pacifico & Big Bully Rezner arrived on scene to assist in the carnage, but out of nowhere “You’ve Got The Touch” hit the PA and “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello returned after two months on the disabled list to single out “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger and Alex Creed. The rest of the NCW locker room then poured out as referee Redd Roche lost control of the situation, leading to a huge locker room brawl.

As Summers promised that 2013 would be his year he was cut off by Commissioner Livsley, who once again offered to punch Doug’s teeth right down his throat.

– Before the night’s action began, Ring Announcer Shane “Sipowicz” Daly welcomed his co-host for the evening Scotty Vegas, who was forced to join the announce team at the end of last Season after he attempted to quit NCW.

Summers was furious over Livsley ignoring him, and not talking more about Doug Summers. Dean informed him that he would not be giving Doug any press for what he did to Steve “The Turtle” Weiner at WrestleFest, and he should be ashamed of himself. Doug then blamed Dean for professional jealousy, and started challenging him to a fight. Dean happily accepted, only to have Doug quickly back off. Livsley then promised that there was a whole locker room full of people who were pissed at Summers, and tonight would start with “The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople!

NCW 2012 Season Award Results

And the winners are…

2012wrestleroftheyear

GA West – 33%

“The Juice” JT Dunn – 32%
“RIOT” Kellan Thomas – 17%
Scotty “By GOD” Vegas – 7%

In the biggest upset of Northeast Championship Wrestling’s 2012 Season Awards, “Simply the Best” GA West narrowly defeated the two time Heavyweight Champion JT Dunn to become the 2012 Wrestler of the Year, edging the champ out by only one percent of the vote. A flood of last minute votes propelled West to 1st place, shaking up the polls and defeating “The Juice”.

While Dunn can say he had the more memorable 2012 winning two Heavyweight titles in the process, “Simply the Best” wrestled a wide variety of competition this past Season, continuing to hone his craft as one of New England’s best wrestlers.

In 3rd place at 17% is the former NCW Tag Team Champion “RIOT” Kellan Thomas, coming off his first year as a singles competitor in NCW after his DUI tag team partner William Thorne moved to Florida in April. Kellan’s 2012 rival Scotty “By GOD” Vegas clawed his way into 4th place despite quitting the company at WrestleFest VII, defying the odds as NCW ushered in a new era of main event competitors.

2012tagteamoftheyear

The BLT – 33%

Destruction Under Impact – 28%
The Super Rad – 8%
The World’s Most Hated Tag Team – 8%

This past year gave way to many of NCW’s best and brightest tag teams breaking up or drifting apart, but 2012 will forever go down as the year of the Big Lovable Team thanks to the uniting of “The Portuguese Sensation” Ruy Batello and LumberjakeThe BLT! Coming together at NCW NO FEAR, Batello & Lumberjake immediately captured the hearts of NCW fans AND the vacant Tag Team Championship in short order.

Their only competition in the voting  came from a team no longer together, but still one of NCW’s most ensduring tandems in the 2010 and 2011 Tag Team of the Year, Destruction Under Impact. “RIOT” and William Thorne dominated the tag team ranks in the first half of 2012, until falling to the Unequaled Destroyers at NCW’s 15 year REUNION.

Though “Dynamite” Doug Summers turned his back on longtime friend Steve “The Turtle” Weiner at WrestleFest, the Super Rad still managed to win 8% of the vote more likely due to Steve Weiner’s popularity rather than Doug Summers’ treachery.

Christopher James & Michael Tootsie Esquire won 8% of the vote. Let that sink in for a moment…

2012matchoftheyear

I Quit Match – 24%

GA West vs. David Loomis – 23%
Mike Paiva vs. The Lumberjake – 16%
Scotty Vegas vs. “RIOT” Kellan Thomas – 13%

If one match signifies what NCW was all about in 2012, it was Buddy Romano defending his NCW Heavyweight Championship against “The Juice” JT Dunn in an I Quit Match at WrestleFest VIII. These two bitter rivals spent nearly the entire year at one another’s throat, each encounter building to this final showdown in Norwood, MA.  In the end it wasn’t just Romano putting his NCW title on the line against the former champion, it was Romano putting everything on the line to prove himself as being NCW’s best. Zero Tolerance. JC Marxxx. His place in NCW history. Everything was put on the table when Dunn & Romano collided at WrestleFest, and they did not disappoint. After forcing Romano to tap out to the ‘Lion Tamer’, “The Juice” thanked the fans for supporting him through it all, and signified a brand new world going forward for Northeast Championship Wrestling.

2012rookieoftheyear

Anthony Greene – 63%

“The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed – 14%
Scotty Slade – 13%
Hunter Ward – 6%

At the beginning of each Season, it’s tough to determine who will break out as the next big thing. 2009 was the first year NCW recognized a Rookie of the Year, and since then each rookie has made a significant impact on the NCW landscape. The 2012 Rookie of the Year first arrived in NCW back at the beginning of the 2011 Season. But wait, how does that work? Well that’s because your 2012 Rookie of the Year is NCW referee Anthony Greene, winning in a landslide with 63% of the vote. It wasn’t until July in Foxboro that “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger challenged AG to a wrestling match, furious over his officiating capabilities. Thanks to a timely assist from “The Juice” JT Dunn, Greene upset Krueger and the rest is history. Since the summer AG has trained harder and harder to become a full time wrestler in New England, looking for an opportunity to prove himself as an in-ring competitor. In 2013 he’ll have his chance.

NCW’s 2012 Most Popular

Anthony Greene – 29%

“The Juice” JT Dunn – 21%
“RIOT” Kellan Thomas – 16%
The Lumberjake – 13%

The overwhelming support for underdog Anthony Greene is evident in the 2012 Season Awards, with AG taking the 2012 Most Popular award as well, just surpassing the NCW Heavyweight Champion in the voting.

NCW’s 2012 Most Hated

Christopher James – 28%

“Simply the Best” GA West – 25%
Scotty “By GOD” Vegas – 11%
Zero Tolerance – 9%

Uncle Joe’s favorite wrestler has finally won something! Unfortunately for Christopher James, his victory comes in the form of NCW’s Most Hated Wrestler, a dubious distinction for many of NCW’s most vile rulebreakers.

NCW’s 2012 Holy $#!T Moment

Referee AG wrestles Jack Krueger – 47%

Loomis bicycle kicks his adopted father – 26%
Doug Summers turns on Steve Weiner – 15%
Kevin Perry is a mole against ZT – 9%

2012 was a year of shocking moments, but this year the fans truly believed that “The Maniacal” Jack Krueger coaxing referee Anthony Greene into the ring at SUMMER MELTDOWN was our 2012 Holy $#!T Moment of the Year.

Taking 26% of the vote was David Loomis finally breaking away from his adopted father JC Marxxx, courtesy of a bicycle kick right to the face, while “Dynamite” Doug Summers violent turn on his longtime friend Steve Weiner rocked 15% of the vote.

NCW’s 2012 Best Inanimate Object

“RIOT” Kepler Thomas – 42%

Alex Creed – 15%
Gordon the 2×4 – 14%
“The Portuguese Flotation” Buoy Ratello – 11%

It’s tough to call any of these nominees inanimate, especially when they get the crowd reactions that they do, but 2012 saw Kepler, the wild haired puppet who loves soccer emerge as NCW’s favorite inanimate object of 2012. The trusty mascot of “RIOT” Kellan Thomas, Kepler even competed in the 2012 Big City Rumble before getting eliminated by Scotty “By GOD” Vegas.

NCW’s 2012 Blast from the Past

“Revolution” Chris Venom – 46%

Evan “Hawkeye” Hunter – 14%
“The Celtic” Conner Murphy – 14%
“Jiving” Jimmy Capone – 14%

2012 was a year of special comebacks and surprises, no more so than NCW Commissioner Dean “The Beast” Livsley bringing back “Revolution” Chris Venom to host NCW’s 15 year REUNION, and oversee the epic night of action.

In a three way tie for 2nd place, the returns of former New England Champion Evan “Hawkeye” Hunter, “Celtic” Conner Murphy, & “Jiving” Jimmy Capone prove that you can in fact come home again.

NCW’s 2012 Best Non Wrestling Personality

Doc Ozone – 28%

Santa Claus – 23%
Dan Tanaka – 13%
“Mr. Clean” Mark Quinn – 9%

This year’s Best Non Wrestling Personality Award came down to one grudge match, Santa Claus vs. Doc Ozone. No other nominee came close to touching this back and forth race between these two fantastical myths come to life. In the end it was Doc O taking the win,standing by his 2012 Wrestler of the Year GA West, while Santa returned to the North Pole empty handed.

Until next year of course…

NCW’s Favorite Northeats Championship Wrestling Character

Souffle [Too Shay] – 24%

JT Well Dunn – 14%
“Simply the Best” GA Chicken Breast – 10%

“The Hard Rock Hellraiser” Todd Sople d. “Simply the Best” GA West w/ Doc Ozone via submission with the ‘Whammy Bar’ in a hard hitting back and forth match up. An unsportsmanlike West blindsided Sople following the match, laying out the ‘Rockstar Rassler’.

Eddie Loomis d. David Marxxx-Loomis w/ JC Marxxx with the bicycle kick in a brutal match. Afterward, a dazed David proudly congratulated his younger brother, finally showcasing the intensity needed to be a winner in NCW. Loomis then offered Eddie a partnership, finally ending the sibling rivalry that’s lasted since Eddie’s debut in 2010. JC then offered Eddie membership in Zero Tolerance, only to have David turn his back on his adopted father, putting Marxxx down with his own bicycle kick!

Santa Claus made a special visit to WrestleFest, wishing all the Norwood fans a very special Happy Holidays. Before Santa could pass out some gifts to the NCW fans he was rudely interrupted by Christopher James, who was still upset over losing the 2012 Season Cup. After stomping on Santa’s presents and letting everyone know that Christmas was canceled, a furious Santa delivered a vicious chokeslam on Uncle Joe’s favorite wrestler.

“RIOT” Kellan Thomas w/ Kepler Thomas d. Scotty “By GOD” Vegas after Kepler helped Thomas score the win (Vegas also tried to bring in Buoy Ratello into the match to no avail allowing Kepler to retaliate). Following the match a frustrated and dejected Vegas quit NCW, Norwood, and the entire wrestling business before walking out the front door with a box of pizza.

Kevin Perry w/ Rob the Giant d. “The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva in a Lumberjack Match to win the NCW New England Championship, ending Paiva’s three year reign as champion. With Dean “The Beast” Livsley acting a special guest enforcer and the NCW locker room out in support, Perry pinned “The Original Showoff” with a decisive German Suplex.

– NCW  Tag Team Champions the BLT (Ruy Batello & the Lumberjake) d. The Super Rad and Pacifico & Big Bully Rezner to retain the NCW Tag Team Championship after the Lumberjake pinned Doug Summers with the 3C. Following Pacifico & Rezner’s elimination from the match, “Dynamite” Doug attempted to use his trusty wrench to eliminate the BLT after slipping out of the attempted 3C. “The Turtle” would have none of it however, furious that Doug would once again try to use a weapon on their opponents. The distraction would allow Jake to finish off Summers to retain the titles after Steve was knocked into his partner.

– Summers took the microphone following the match and talked about the past year with his tag team partner, and his attempts to become NCW’s first Triple Crown Champion. Eerily calm, Doug then told Steve that he could only look after himself and that Weiner’s services would no longer be needed as he provided a swift kick to the nether regions on “The Turtle”. Doug then used a steel chair on his former partner, and prepared to lay waste to Weiner before Batello & Lumberjake returned to chase Summers off.

– In the Main Event of the evening, “The Juice” JT Dunn defeated Buddy Romano in an I Quit Match to win his second NCW Heavyweight Championship after Romano quit to Dunn’s ‘lion tamer’. This match saw both men beat the holy hell out of each other, brawling all over the Elks Lodge. The match also saw referee Redd Roche get inadvertently knocked out by a wayward JT Dunn elbow, Mike Paiva show up to try and help his Zero Tolerance cohort, and JC Marxxx being forced to watch his man quit while being held back by Commissioner Livsley, and ending JC’s NCW career.

Northeast Championship Wrestling will return for its 2013 wrestling season on Friday night February 22nd when NCW returns to the Elks Lodge in Norwood, MA for COLLISION COURSE.
