Man, that show is so easy breezy. So simple, and yet the promos are really effective.

You can really feel the midcard wheels grinding thanks to Punchline. There's nothing they don't have their hands in, down the card and there's a lot of them getting things done.

Marcus Lucillius continues to be a bad man. He's definitely the kind of guy that takes trophies from his victims. I wonder what he'd take from the people of RPW....

Matt Keith is an interesting man. When he doesn't wake up he sure can crap the bed. Matt "The Sandman" Keith, he sure is. But him and Flash is going to be a happening, if it does actually happen of course

Championship Wrestling From Boston
Saturday Week 4 June 2015 Reggie Lewis Center (New England) Attendance: 1763

The announce team of Buentello, Lockett, and Curran welcome us back to the Reggie Lewis Center for Championship Wrestling From Boston, talking about our two huge matches: The crowning of the first Boston Tag Team Champions will occur with Swedish Muscle taking on New England Revolution for the honor, and the massive Boston Openweight Championship match between champion Donnie J and challengers Ernest Youngman and Spencer Spade.
The trio gets cut off by the music of the Superstar of the Next Generation, as KC Glenn makes his return to Boston. KC Glenn hasn't had it good lately, in a lot of ways, and it has set him on a path of reflection, and he has come to a realization. That if he wants to be what he says he is, the very best of the young crop of wrestlers coming up today, then he has to know he's got the bullseye on himself at all times. There are going to be guys who choose him to make statements and prove themselves. And that's okay baby, because the Sunshine Band don't stop playing just cause he gets down once or twice. But tonight, it's time for KC Glenn to send a message, so Rapido can come out here to get his ass kicked, and then tell his buddy Masked Patriot that this is what he's got waiting for him

Before the show, Lisa Bowen is at the trunk of her car unpacking, as Ash Campbell shows up with his bag over his shoulder. He asks if Bowen was pleased with his work last time, since he couldn't find her after his match. She says it's possible that she liked what she saw. She knows she likes what she sees now. Campbell smiles and says he was starting to wonder if she ever got impressed. Bowen says it takes a lot, but Campbell is on his way. Now if he could get some gold around his waist, she might have to couple her caboose with his engine. If he thinks he can provide the forward thrust she needs. Ash smiles and tells Bowen to get on board and he'll take her straight to the top

Monster Inc. is in the office of the "Boss" Cherry Bomb. The Monster wants to know why their presence was requested and Cherry Bomb says it's simple: This war between Monster Inc. and the Luchadors ends tonight. Acid and Drury takes on Wild and Free and The Monster finally takes on El Mitico Jr. The Monster is pleased but what does that have to do with anything?
Cherry Bomb makes it very simple: The Openweight and Tag Team Titles will need new challengers very soon. If you win, you might be at the head of the line...maybe. Now Acid and Drury need to go because their match is next. Pettle gets her boys out of there and heading to the ring while The Monster stays put. He tells Cherry Bomb she's doing a good job so far but don't get comfortable because this is his company and nobody rules this place but him
Rating: D (44)


Monster Inc. Acid II & Kirk Drury vs. Wild and Free - Boriken Love Machine Jr. & Amazing Fire Fly
Acid (9:50) via Acid Rain Bomb on BLM
The Luchadors go after their opponents fast and hard wanting to end this quickly by overwhelming with speed and agility but Drury and Acid know all of WAF's tricks and grind them down slowly and surely, taking their time to wear down AFF. Fire Fly eventually breaks free and gets BLM into the match and he uses his unorthodox attack to flummox the heels. BLM hits the Love Gun on Drury but did not notice the blind tag and as he waits, in vain, for Kurt Lovenkrantz to count the pin he gets hammered by the Acid Rain Bomb. After Acid knocks Fire Fly off the apron, he comes back and gets the pinfall victory

Katie Cameron is at the CWB logo to interview her guests at this time, Shoot Club. Al Coleman and Marc Speed understand that tonight is some kind of showdown night, where everyone is settling old accounts. That is pretty fitting, considering they're facing old man Flash tonight. Coleman laughs but Speed gets serious. Because this is no laughing matter, they came to Boston to clear out all the teams here, and instead, they have met resistance and challenges every step of the way. The teams in Boston don't seem to understand how you treat greatness, so the kid gloves come off. The best tag team in the world is done playing nice and taking it easy. From here on out you have three options: Tap, nap, or snap
Rating: D (44)


Flash Bomb - Jerry Martin & Steve Flash vs. Shoot Club - Al Coleman & Marc Speed
Speed (9:57) via Cross Armbreaker on Flash
Shoot Club comes out with focus and intensity, taking care of business right away, working over Martin for a few minutes till he can get Flash in, but Flash's burst doesn't last long either before Shoot Club goes about proving they're the best in the world once more. Flash is crafty though and he gets a refreshed Martin in, and the Blonde Bomber goes right after it, knocking Coleman from pillar to post. They take each other out with clotheslines and get their counterparts back in and they bang back and forth. On the outside, Coleman incapacitates Martin and gets Lovenkrantz' attention, who takes a look at Martin on the apron. This buys Coleman time to sneak and get a chair and he bashes Flash in the arm as he hits the ropes on an Irish Whip. Flash falls right into the arms of Speed who slaps on his Cross Armbreaker and Flash has to tap out instantly
Rating: C (63)


Flash Bomb swears vengeance against Shoot Club as the winners celebrate and say the winners of the Boston Tag Titles are marked men
Rating: D (44)

Katie Cameron comes out to the ring to interview one of the finalists in the Boston Tag Team Championship tournament, New England Revolution. Masked Patriot joins her in the ring while The Pilgrim spends the interview doing a "goodie" giveaway. Cameron asks if this is all part of Patriot's plan to remake Boston and he says of course it is. The first step was taking that man (he says pointing to Pilgrim who is getting lustily booed and spat at "figuratively"), and turning him from a joke into a true contender. Then he proved his point that some of the competitors in Boston are just overhyped wannabes. He heard what KC Glenn said earlier and he has already forgotten it because he doesn't concern himself with trash. And that brings him to Nigel Svensson and Anders Thunder. They think they can represent Boston? Represent America, as champions? If they want to be champions, go back to Sweden and go shoot elk. This is America, and you need red-blooded Americans to carry the banner in a city as rich and full of history as Boston. New England Revolution reminds you of what America is really capable of, tonight
Rating: D (45)


Boston Tag Team Championship Match
Swedish Muscle - Anders Thunder & Nigel Svensson vs. New England Revolution - Masked Patriot & The Piligrim
Nigel (9:24) via Riksdag into Hyper-Extension Arm Lock on Pilgrim
NE Revolution try to show what the scum of America are capable of. Doing everything they can to keep Svensson out of the match by running every dirty trick possible on big, but slow, Anders. It works for a while but Anders simply overpowers Patriot and gets to his corner to get Svensson in. The Swedish technician blows right through Patriot & Pilgrim, but they slow him back down and look to get the advantage, till KC Glenn makes his way to the ring and gets on the apron, which distracts Patriot while in the ring, Pilgrim dies to the Riksdag and Nigel Svensson slaps on the Hyper-Extension Arm Lock. Pilgrim taps furiously, and Patriot turns around to see his chance at the Boston Tag Team Titles has gone up in smoke
Rating: C- (54)


Swedish Muscle celebrates their win, proudly displaying their Tag Team Titles.
We go to the CWB logo where Phonse Lockett introduces his guest at this time, the former Boston Openweight Champion, Ernest Youngman. Phonse asks Youngman how he's feeling about getting his rematch for the title, in a triple threat match that his rival Spencer Spade butted his way into. And Youngman is surprisingly happy about it. Most people would be upset about it, but not The Assassin. He thought Donnie J was more honorable than this but he's shown his true colors lately and that's okay. Youngman will simply enjoy crossing him off the Hit List. And then there's Spencer Slimeball. It doesn't matter how many times he crosses that name off his Hit List, he just keeps coming back like a cockroach. Well now, Youngman will have his eyes on Spade and there will be nowhere to hide and sneak up on him. And he won't get away either. And once he's put both of them down, Youngman will take back what he never should have lost, and he will continue to be the man that represents Boston as the Openweight Champion
Rating: C- (57)


Henry Bennett & Felipe Caballero vs. Austin Smooth & Dragon Del Arco Iris Jr. (CILL)
Bennett (8:01) via Figure Four Leglock on Dragon
Smooth and Dragon work together, after their harrowing experiences with Spencer Spade, but their young partnership isn't enough to overcome the experienced pairing of Bennett and Caballero, and once they isolate Dragon, that spells doom
Rating: D+ (48)


Donnie J is preparing in his locker room when Spencer Spade knocks and enters. Donnie doesn't know what he wants and Spade says he wants to welcome Donnie J to Spencer Spade Country, by taking the Openweight title. And they can do this like gentlemen, one-on-one, but first they have to remove the variable from the equation. If they work together and dismiss the baby assassin together, then they can settle who is the best in Boston like men. But if Donnie crosses Spade like Youngman has, he will end up just the same. No representation, Donnie....
Spade leaves Donnie's locker room with much to consider for the champion
Rating: C+ (69)


Ash Campbell vs. Ekuma
Ash (7:09) via Shooting Star Press
The second generation star gets pushed by Ekuma...for a few minutes, then his pedigree takes over and he puts down the big guy
Rating: D+ (50)


The Monster vs. El Mitico Jr.
Mitico (13:14) via Rollup
Almost the same story, in a different form, with Mitico's inhuman stamina and resilience allowing him to overcome the barrage of The Monster, and though he couldn't plant him with the Northern Lights Suplex, he is able to counter the Maw of the Monster into a victory roll that gets...the victory
Rating: B- (72)


Mitico doesn't get much time to celebrate before Ash Campbell makes his way back out the ring to confront the masked star and they jaw at each other until Cherry Bomb comes out. She says that she sees two top contenders in the ring so they are going to face each other, to decide who will be the number one contender to the Boston Openweight Champion, next month
Rating: C- (58)


Boston Openweight Championship Match
Donnie J vs. Ernest Youngman vs. Spencer Spade
Donnie J (24:22) via Death on Miami Beach on Youngman
This match definitely started off poorly for The Supreme Star, as Donnie and Youngman worked with each other to expel Spade from the match and then go after each other. It worked for a time but Spade was always able to come back and break up a pin attempt. After a few back and forths like this, Donnie J changes tactics and helps Spade destroy Youngman, leaving him laying on the outside. Then Spade and Donnie battle, as Youngman tries to recuperate. Eventually the former champion gets his second wind and we get a three way back and forth of punches (Youngman on Spade, Spade on Donnie, Donnie on Youngman) till they all fall down. Spade and Donnie are the first ones up and they go back and forth with punches till Donnie starts to fade. Youngman takes advantage of the opportunity and hits the ropes looking for The Hit but he goes down like a gunshot when he gets kicked low by Spade on his approach. Spade points to Donnie J with a smile and says they'll do it like gentlemen. And Donnie J hits the Death on Miami Beach to retain the Openweight Title
Rating: B (77)


Spade jawjacks at the downed Youngman once again then turns his attention to Donnie J. He tells Donnie that that's two times now, that he's made sure Donnie walks out the Openweight Champion, and it's time he pays what he owes because the Taxman Cometh...for the belt. Donnie looks unimpressed and says he has no problem facing Spade, but he might want to worry about himself. Spade doesn't have any idea what that means, until he gets hit in the junk by Youngman, who then takes him out with The Hit. Donnie exits the ring as Youngman says he'll get that title back and poses for the audience as Championship Wrestling From Boston comes to an end

Goddamn, Mitico cannot catch a break. First Monster and now Campbell? That's not playing nice. Your avatar pulling a 72 hurts my soul deeply though.

Also, fuck you Monster for threatening to pull rank like that. Dirty fucking asshole.

Low Blows For Everyone! !!!

Still though, fuck Spencer Spade with a rusty trowel.

SUCK IT PILGRIM, YA TURNCOAT BASTARD

Also, could your show grades kindly rot in hell? I mean, at this point, that's all that you have left to accomplish, right? Fastest rising promotion in fucking hell too?

goddamn it.

Main show

The commentary team of Clifford Crash, Jerome Turner, and Tony Chambers welcomes us to the show. They read a notice they received from the RPW Champion, Steve Flash,that tonight is the night he takes control of his promotion. The trio wonders what he could mean by that. They also go over tonight’s main event, featuring Matthew Keith and Stink.

Rating: E+ (32)

Ant-Man vs Sammy the Shark
Sammy the Shark looks to end the bit of a slide he’s been on against an equally struggling opponent. Ant Man though, comes out strong, fist pumping, and throwing glowsticks to the crowd en route to the ring. Sammy stays in control for most of this match, but the strength of Ant Man gets him a few openings. Ant Man goes for a flying shoulder tackle, but Sammy the Shark ducks it. Sammy lines up the Deuces, but Ant Man catches the arm, and rolls up the Shark for the close 3 count.

We go backstage and see Amazing Fire Fly warming up for his upcoming tag match. Suddenly, there’s a puff of white smoke, and Kazebushi jumps through it, holding a fire extinguisher. Fire Fly looks confused, as Kazebushi quickly sets it down. The two shake hands, and embrace, as Fire Fly asks how he’s been. Kazebushi starts pantomiming things, but Fire Fly shakes his head, saying he doesn’t know what he’s trying to say. They’re interrupted by Drake Young, Steel, and Primus Allen. Young walks up, points to Kazebushi and asks if he’s still doing this whole… thing. Kazebushi strikes a pose in response. Drake sighs in disgust, and pushes Kazebushi away by his face, before addressing Amazing Fire Fly. He says that after tonight, your little ‘fire’ will be put out. As if to make his point for him, Primus Allen steps up, and shoves down Kazebushi, who had just gotten back to his feet. Drake Young turns away from Fire Fly, and wishes him ‘luck’ tonight, as he leaves the frame.

Rating: D- (40)

Amazing Fire Fly & Little Bill Lebowski vs Punchline (RPW Tag Team Champions Steel & Primus Allen) w/ Drake Young
Fire Fly and Little Bill Lebowski come out like dynamite, trying to finish this match as fast as they can, before the strength of Punchline can overwhelm them. After a series of nearfalls by Fire Fly and Lebowski, Drake Young decides that enough is enough. He gets up on the apron, and starts jawing at the ref, which gives his team enough time to take control with a low blow on Little Bill. His job done, Drake Young puts his hands up towards the ref, saying he’s right, and he hops of the apron. He then saunters around the ring, and whistles nonchalantly over to the babyface corner. Steel and Primus keep Bill isolated, and start planting him with repeated power moves. Steel tags in Primus Allen, and hoists Bill up. Allen hits the ropes and they level Bill with the Lariat Bomb. Fire Fly goes to break up the pin, but Drake Young grabs his leg, keeping him from entering the ring. The ref doesn’t notice, and counts the 3.

Amazing Fire Fly goes to chase Drake Young around ringside, but he runs blindly into a Lariat from Primus Allen. We then here Steve Flash’s music, and Then, Now, Forever make their way down to the ring again, and start beating up Amazing Fire Fly and Little Bill Lebowski. Flash plants Lebowski with the Flash Bomb, and Matty Faith is given the honor of finishing off Fire Fly, nailing him with the Faith Falls Eternal.

When the ring clears, Marcus Lucillius makes his entrance. He gets into the ring, nose upturned, and requests a mic. He asks if anyone wishes to challenge him, in the glorious stage of battle. When nobody answers his call, he says that if no man wishes to face him in mortal combat, he shall simply be forced to tear this building apart in order to amuse himself. He goes to leave the ring, but Cal Sanders stumbles out from behind the curtain, as if pushed. He hesitantly makes his way to the ring, as Marcus looks on.

Rating: D (41)

Cal Sanders vs Marcus Lucillius
Sanders is hesitant to start the match, avoiding the large man’s bulrush attempts. He doesn’t capitalize though, only offering tentative kicks. After landing a few shin kicks, Sanders’ confidence seems to grow, as he strikes harder and harder. It all comes to a crashing halt though, as he goes for his first flying move, a springboard crossbody, and gets caught by Lucillius. Marcus slams him to the mat with force, and never looks back. From there, a series of power slams spells the end for Sanders, as Marcus puts him away with the Backdrop Driver.

Marcus grabs a mic and says that he is still not entertained, so next show, he is making his own entertainment. A Coliseum match shall be held between him and five other men. Maybe then, he shall find someone worthy here. Marcus drops the mic and bails, and as if on clockwork, Then, Now, Forever hits the ring, and again, it results in someone being planted with a Flash Bang.

Clifford Crash is in the interview area, and is about to welcome his guest at this time, Matthew Keith, but he’s interrupted by Keith’s opponent tonight, Stink. Stink starts to back crash down into a corner, when Keith shows up. The two stare each other down, and Stink pushes Crash and leaves the shot. Keith asks if Crash is alright, and Crash, shaken says he’s fine. Keith takes the mic from Crash, and tells him to go sit down. Crash hesitates, and Keith again tells Crash to go take a seat. Crash heads out, and Keith says that he’s sick of all these people getting between him, Steve Flash, and the RPW Championship. Tonight, he’s got one more big, ugly roadblock in his way, and then it’s onto Has Been, Never Was, and Never Will Be.

Sweet & Sour make their extended entrance. We learn the name of their groupie who has been following them on a regular basis: Kali Fornia.

Rating: D (42)

Rayne Man & Running Wolf vs Sweet & Sour (J Cool & Flash Savage) w/Kali Fornia
After a shaky start, that saw S&S use their experience together to control the match, Rayne Man and Running Wolf find their groove and start to swing the momentum back in their favor. As things start to look bleak for the boy band, Kali Fornia tries to get involved in the match. Much to her dismay, all it results in is her being expelled from ringside, after she entered the ring. Security was forced to lead her to the back. This distraction gave Running Wolf enough time to tag in Rayne Man. Rayne Man comes in like a roaring tempest, and obliterates J Cool off the apron with a running dropkick. Flash Savage tries to rush Rayne Man as he pulls himself up in the corner, but Rayne Man sidesteps, and sends Savage into the ring post. Rayne Man pulls the stunned Savage out of the corner, wraps him up, and takes his head off with a huge Raynemaker.

Rayne Man and Running Wolf turn their attention away from Sweet & Sour, and start calling out Punchline, and specifically, Drake Young. Young, Allen, and Steel oblige, and step out from behind the curtain. The two groups start jawing at each other, and Drake Young sports a shit eating grin the entire time. We see a figure hop the barricade with a chair, and it’s Austin Moore rushing the ring from behind Rayne Man and Running Wolf. Moore cracks the chair across the back of Rayne Man, and then Running Wolf. The beat down continues, as Steel and Primus join in. Drake Young takes the chair, and sets it down in the middle of the ring, as Rayne Man and Running Wolf are stacked in front of the chair. Drake Young takes a seat and props his feet up on his fallen adversaries, chatting with his associates.

Rating: D+ (50)

We go back to the commentary table, where Crash, Turner, and Chambers discuss Then, Now, Forever’s streak of beating down people tonight, in hopes of intimidating the roster. They also discuss Marcus Lucillius’ challenge for next show. They cap off the recap by talking about the upcoming match between Matthew Keith and Stink.

Rating: E+ (34)

Matthew Keith vs Stink
Keith fires out of the gate quickly, and goes for the legs of Stink early. Early kicks and chop blocks start to weaken the base of Stink from the outset. This works for a short while, until Stink finally manages to get his hands on Keith. The match gets real ugly, real fast. Stink’s offense is bowling shoe ugly, with huge sweeping haymakers and stomps. Stink really starts pushing Keith, grounding him, and stepping on his back. After a series of nearfalls, Stink gets frustrated, and hits the ropes, looking for an elbow drop. Keith rolls out of the way, and scrambles to the big man, grabbing the huge arm in an armbar. Stink uses his large frame to reach for the ropes, forcing the ref to break the hold. The two men return to their feet, and Stink rushes full-speed at Keith. Keith, thinking fast, uses his opponent’s momentum against him, and catches him with a reverse STO for a nearfall. Keith is in control now, easily dodging and countering Stink’s straight ahead tactics. Keith looks for a Neutron Plex, but the mass of Stink causes Keith to topple, with Stink on top of him, resulting in a 2.5 count. As the two men struggle to their feet, we see the gears turning in Keith’s head, when suddenly his eyes sharpen. He takes the fight to Stink, pushing him back into the ropes. He staggers the big man, before getting a head of steam and takes Stink over with a clothesline. The two tumble to the outside, with Stink hissing his back on the apron. Not content, Keith presses his offense bouncing Stink off the ring posts and stairs. The count is up to 5, as Keith slaps on the Proton Lock, and cinches it on as tight as Stink’s large frame will allow him to. Keith breaks the hold at 8, and climbs back into the ring. Stink lies at ringside, still clutching his neck and arm as the ref’s count hits 10.

Rating: D+ (50)

Keith doesn’t get to celebrate long, as RPW Champion, Steve Flash and Friends appear from behind the curtain. They start to walk down the aisle towards the ring, when Matty Faith is blindsided by a sprinting Kirk Jameson. Jameson keeps going, and rolls right into the ring, along with Keith, daring Then Now, Forever to fight them, now that the numbers are evened up. Flash stops, and signals to Frank Harriet. The two turn around, and walk back towards the curtain, leaving Matty Faith lying on the ground, as Kirk Jameson and Matthew Keith taunt Then, Now, Forever to close the show.

The announcer team of Lockett, Curran, and Buentello welcome the audience to Championship Wrestling From Boston, with tonight's main event of Donnie J defending the Openweight Title against Spencer Spade, when Acid II and Pettle come to the ring for the opening match. Acid takes the mic and lets all of Boston know, quite succinctly, that Monster Inc. is not a one-man operation. The Monster might be top name in the group but Acid is not to be overlooked. He is a challenger for the titles in Boston in his own right, and he's going to begin his quest tonight, by taking out the trash that blows into his ring

Mitico confirms the rumors as true, and he is going to be ever thankful to CWB for the opportunities he was given to shine, and he will show his appreciation and his love of Boston, by leaving CWB as the Openweight Champion, and saving the company from the scourges that look to drag it down.

The Monster shoves by Youngman as Cherry asks what he wants. Youngman says she knows exactly what he wants and if she doesn't give it to him, he's going to shut this show down. Cherry tries to expel Youngman but he tells her that she doesn't understand the depth of her situation and why you never piss off an Assassin, as he shoves a concerned Cherry back into her office and shuts the door behind himself

Spencer Spade is getting ready in his dressing room when Donnie J walks in, with the Boston Openweight Title on his shoulder. Spade asks if Donnie is here to forfeit and just hand the belt over and Donnie declines. He tells Spade that he knows all about what people like him are and Donnie J doesn't like him. He has no respect for anyone or anything, let alone the history of a title like this. Donnie hasn't needed Spencer Spade's help to get by and he will prove it, when Spade falls to him tonight. Spade smiles and reminds Donnie that everyone pays what they owe in Spencer Spade Country, one way or another.
Donnie is interrupted and dismissed by Cherry Bomb who looks panicked and wants to tell Spade something, but Spade sends her away and says not to worry him before his match. They'll deal with it later

The CZCW trio of Shoot Club and Donnie J are in the back, gameplaning exactly how the rest of the evening should unfold: Coleman has done his part and now it's time for Marc Speed to prove this young child Austin Smooth is nothing but a poor imitation of what the finest technical team in the world do every single night, he says patting the Coastal Tag Champions on the back (yes they have the belts). And then he will put an end to this idea that Donnie J needs help to be the best wrestler in the world, because he is going to shut Spencer Spade up. And they will continue to dominate the landscape like nobody else can
Rating: C- (55)

Austin Smooth is on his way to the ring for his match when he gets pulled aside by Ernest Youngman. Youngman tries to convince the young star to watch his back out there tonight because CZCW is capable of anything, but Smooth tells Youngman to stay out of it. He's going to do what nobody else seems to do and beat these yahoos at their own game. And he'll do it with style because he's just that Smooth. So he can take notes and get a good look at the next Boston Openweight Champion, in action

Austin Smooth vs. Marc Speed
Speed (5:49) via Cross Armbreaker
Smooth came out and was more than on his way to proving his point, as his young energy was overwhelming Speed, but the 2-on-1 game was too much as Speed distracted the ref, allowing Coleman to smash Smooth with a chair and allow Speed to DDT Smooth and then lock in the Cross Armbreaker that makes Smooth tap

Swedish Muscle celebrates their victory with posing and declarations that nobody will be taking these belts off of them.
We go to the back where Ash Campbell is walking with Lisa Bowen to the ring for his number one contenders match with El Mitico Jr. and Bowen looks pleased. She says she knows Campbell is ready, and he's going to prove to her and to all of Boston by beating that masked loser so bad he quits right now and goes back to whatever taco stand he crawled out of. Campbell agrees and then says that the gold is going to look so good on him. And he's going to look so good on her. Bowen grins and says only if daddy brings home the bacon. Campbell says to consider it done

Ash Campbell vs. El Mitico Jr.
Campbell (13:46) via Shooting Star Press
These two have a furious match, with both guys gunning for the opportunity to challenge for the Openweight Title, but it's the little extra edge that Campbell has, with Mitico knowing he's not long for Boston, that gives the second generation star the advantage and he counters the Northern Lights Suplex into a huge Lariat to the back of the head and then finishes things with the SSP

In a rather shocking surprise, Ernest Youngman comes to ringside and sits on commentary for the main event title match

Boston Openweight Championship Match
Donnie J vs. Spencer Spade
Donnie J (23:01) via pinfall
Spade and Donnie J pick right up where they left off last show in the 3-way title match and beat each other from pillar to post, with neither man staying down long. Spade finally slows the pace down and gets to wearing down Donnie and trying to use his technical skill to beat the high flying vet, but Donnie is a triple champion for a reason and is able to press the pace. Late in the match, Donnie wipes out the ref on a cross body and Spade rams Donnie face first into a middle turnbuckle then goes to get the Openweight Title, with the goal of smashing Donnie's face in. Youngman jumps off of commentary and pulls the belt away only to accidentally deck Donnie J when Spade ducks. Spade looks shocked but grateful, and letting his guard down was a big mistake as Youngman decks Spade too, then drops the belt. Both men are laid out as Kurt Lovenkrantz comes to and Donnie is able to drap an arm over Spade, and Lovenkrantz slowly makes the three count and Donnie J retains the Openweight Title
Rating: B (77)


Youngman gets in the ring as Donnie crawls his way out, and demands Cherry Bomb make her way to the ring, as Spade comes to. Youngman corners Spade and tells him to listen very closely to what his little she-devil has to say and Cherry announces to Spade that Youngman has been granted a Last Man Standing match with Spencer Spade at the next CWB show. Spade looks annoyed at Cherry and says so what? Cherry purses her mouth and then announces that the match will have a special stipulation. The loser will have to leave Boston, for good. Spencer Spade slumps in the corner and Ernest Youngman crows that very soon, this thing between them ends for good and Youngman will finally cross Spade off his Hit List once and for all. Spade loses it and Youngman celebrates as Championship Wrestling From Boston comes to a close

El Mitico Jr. is preparing for action tonight, and Cherry Bomb comes in to let him know that she had a discussion with ownership and they know that this going to be Mitico's last night in CWB so they want him to go out on a high note. So Mitico will get to face Monster Inc. tonight.
Mitico looks pleased and says he will enjoy teaming with his boys for one last ride. Cherry corrects Mitico and says that Wild and Free have the night off. No, Mitico will face Monster Inc. on his own, consecutively, in singles action. Cherry then wishes Mitico the best in all of his future endeavors, pats Mitico on the back, and then makes her way out

Monster Inc. stands over the destroyed Mitico with Acid crowing that this is what happens to whoever crosses Monster Inc. and The Monster poses.
We go to Katie Cameron at the CWB logo with her guest at this time, The Assassin Ernest Youngman. She wants to know how Youngman is feeling about this possibly being Youngman's last night in Boston and the news that came down from ownership: Each man will get to add a stipulation...something to sweeten the pot to this match.
Youngman says that he is excited. He knows that he has put a lot on the line here tonight but he's done it for one very simple reason: Boston needs Spencer Spade removed from it. Spencer Slimeball is a cancer, a grotesque and unwanted growth on everything that CWB stands for. And Ernest Youngman wants to make sure that they have this stage all to themselves so his stipulation is a simple one. If anyone...anyone at all interferes in this match not only will the loser leave town but whoever gets involved too. So don't expect anyone to come here and save you Spencer Slimeball. Tonight you get your name crossed off the Hit List once and for all

KC Glenn barges into Cherry Bomb's office and petitions her for a shot at Masked Patriot, one-on-one. Cherry says she's got nothing for him tonight and she's not going to put that match on the card when CWB goes to Mexico in August, but she will keep that in mind, when the brackets for the Commonwealth Cup are put together. She won't make any promises, but he might get his shot then. Glenn says he hopes she gives him that shot because he really needs it
Rating: C (59)


Last Man Standing Loser Leaves Town Match
Spencer Spade vs. Ernest Youngman
Youngman (14:48) via 10 Count
Much like the affair in December, Spencer Spade spends the early part of the match on his bicycle just trying to survive Youngman's barrage. Unlike in December, when Spade had nowhere to go, he is able to slink out of the ring and slow things out, until he can fluster Youngman into making a mistake. He then unloads the entire arsenal on Youngman, including a sick DDT onto the steel ring steps but that only gets an 8 count. Spade cannot figure out what to do to get rid of Youngman and tries to Supreme Stunner Youngman off the ring apron to the floor, but Youngman pushes Spade off to the floor and then mauls him with a dive. He then batters Spade around the ringside area but is almost decapitated by a (protected) headshot with a chair by Spade. The announcers are going crazy that Spade will sink to any depth to win, and he takes out a table in the ring to put Youngman through with a Supreme Stunner to end this, but Youngman fights back and gets on the top rope with Spade. The two rivals battle back and forth and Youngman wins the exchange, and sets Spade up. He then flings him up and over, putting Spade through the table with a superplex. The ref makes the count, and Youngman makes it up at 8 and and Spade just cannot clear it to his feet by the 10 count. Ernest Youngman wins and Spencer Spade's CWB career is over!
Rating: B (79)


Youngman celebrates his win, and breathes a sigh of relief when Spencer Spade demands a mic. He knows Ernest Youngman thinks he's won here, but as always, The Supreme Star always is, and always will be one step ahead of the baby assassin. Even if Spencer Spade won't be here, it's still Spencer Spade Country and Youngman will pay his taxes. Spade hopes Youngman enjoys the Commonwealth Cup because it's time for Spade to reveal his stipulation.
In the event that Spade lost, as unlikely as it was, the baby assassin would be disqualified from entering the Commonwealth Cup. Spade cackles wildly as security escorts him out and Youngman is left completely crestfallen.
Meanwhile, we go to Ash Campbell & Lisa Bowen walking in the back towards the ring and Lisa says that tonight is going to be the night that they begin the march to greatness, and what a sweet march it will be

No Mitico

No Spade

No Youngman...

I know I've made this prediction EVERY year, but... The Monster's running this through, isn't he? There's nobody to stop him, unless someone magically rolls him up. Only people I can see doing that now are Glenn or maybesomehow, Jerry Martin.

The main event for your second show was such a fucking afterthought. It's glorious.

Mitico just got royally fucked over on his way out though. Like, that wasn't even fair in the slightest.

CWB really does have some dirty-ass heels. Dump the whole city into the ocean, I say.

Main Show

We open up the show with our announce team of Clifford Crash, Jerome Turner, and Tony Chambers welcoming us to the show. Before they can go into the show breakdow, Drake Young shows up with his grin and asks “what’s up nerds?” The crew tries to continue doing their job, but Drake Young starts messing with Jerome Turner; flicking his ear, messing with his mic, and just being a nuisance in general. Proud of himself, Young tells Turner to take a hike, he wants to see how amazing he is at this commentator and interviewer thing. Turner hesitates, thinking Young is joking, but Young prompts him to hurry up. Finally Turner relents, and Young grabs the mic, and grabs a seat. He asks what they’re doing now, and Crash says they’re talking about the show, and the huge main event of Then, Now, Forever’s Frank Harriet and RPW Champion, Steve Flash, will be taking on Matthew Keith and Kirk Jameson. Young blows that off though, and says that the real match of the night is when the Tag Team Champions defend their titles, and rid themselves once and for all of Rayne Man and Running Wolf. Young says they were fun at one point, but now they’re just played out. They bore him. So after tonight, it’s on to bigger and better things for Punchline. Chambers adds that tonight, Marcus Lucillius will be getting his request, and the rules of the Coliseum Match are straightforward. It’s a 6 man, elimination match, and Lucilius’ opposition for tonight will be Nigel Svensson, Ant-Man, Sammy the Shark, Dermott Ayres, and Lazy Joe. Drake Young lets out a loud, exaggerated yawn, and asks when does the show start?

Chambers stands by the curtain, wearing a bowtie with the Disposable Heroes insignia. He starts narrating, explaining that after their last battle, our heroes were placed into a maze by a strange foe. At the end of each maze, lie a vicious opponent that would test their mettle. Mystery Man was the first to clear the trial, and now, Kazebushi must face his adversary alone. Can the youngest member of the group channel his Hero Might and emerge victorious? Chambers steps back, and Kazebushi bursts out of the curtain, striking his pose. He dashes to the ring, hops on the turnbuckle, and peers around, as if trying to find an exit. When his opponent’s music hits, he strikes his pose again quickly, and waits for them to get to the ring.

Kazebushi vs Bob Casey
Kaze Bushi starts off the match quickly, rushing Casey with a series of quick chest chops. This short little burst is quickly squashed though, as the Veteran, Bob Casey, takes control over this match. Casey has this firmly in control, and goes to hoist the masked man up, but Kazebushi squirms out of it, ends up behind Casey, and rolls him up. Casey struggles, but he can’t escape before the three count.

Drake Young welcomes Matty Faith, Frank Harriet, and the RPW Champion, Steve Flash to the interview area. Young points out that tonight, Frank and Flash will be facing Kirk Jameson and Matthew Keith. Do they have any thoughts on their opponents tonight? Frank steps forward, saying that they’ve already wasted enough breath saying what they ‘think’. What they KNOW is that Kirk and Keith are just flashes in the pan, wrestling in a time when talent is lacking. Young nods and asks Flash why he’s competing in tonight’s match, instead of sending his lackey in his place? Seems like a big risk he’s taking, comments Young. Flash replies that unlike some people, he handles his own business, instead of hiding. Then, Now, Forever exits, as Drake Young wears a sour expression.

Rating: D+ (51)

Still in the interview area, a still sour Drake Young welcomes Ant Man, and roughly asks him how he even hopes to survive this match. Ant Man laughs, and tries to give Drake Young a glowstick to cheer him up, but he’s not having any of that. Before he can say anything else though, Marcus Lucillius enters the frame. He expresses his disappointment with the festivities today. His match tonight was supposed to be the pinnacle of combat, and this is all they line up for me? He continues talking down to his opposition, as Ant-Man just stands there, stupid grin on his face. After his tirade, Lucillius leaves in a huff. Ant-Man then pulls some earbuds out of his ears, and says to Young that the big dude kinda looked angry. Maybe he should chill out. Young watches Ant-Man exit the interview area, before saying “what the hell is wrong with these people…”

Rating: D+ (52)

Coliseum Match
Lazy Joe vs Nigel Svensson vs Ant-Man vs Marcus Lucillius vs Dermott Ayres vs Sammy the Shark
After that interview, it’s no surprise that everyone rushes Marcus Lucillius. Lucillius thwarts the early attempt at the five men to put him down, but the repeated waves of attacks and blows start to stagger Lucillius. Sammy the Shark loads up Deuces and Nigel follows it up with a Knee Trembler. Lucillius, now on the mat, is covered by all five men, and he is eliminated from the match. Lucillius sits up with a start, not believing what happened. The ref backs away, meekly telling Lucillius he has to leave the ring. Lucillius stares daggers at Nigel as he exits the ring. Sammy the Shark takes this tense moment to quickly roll up Lazy Joe, and the lethargic Lazy Joe is eliminated. The remaining 4 are now refocused. Dermott Ayres and Sammy the Shark work together to toss Nigel out of the ring, so they can work over Ant-man without any interference. Ant-Man tries to fight back, but he quickly falls to the 2-on-1 onslaught. The two stand tall, proud of their handiwork, when suddenly Dermott tries to roll up Sammy the Shark, but only gets a near fall. All bets are off, as these two start striking back and forth. Nigel re-enters the ring, and rushes both men, flattening them with a double clothesline. Nigel fires up and starts laying into Dermott with some stiff strikes. A strong back elbow keeps Sammy the Shark at bay, as he tries to jump Nigel. With Sammy staggered, Nigel loads up, and wipes Dermott Ayres out with a Knee Trembler, leading to his elimination. Sammy the Shark Tries to grab Nigel’s arms, to set him up for the Ace in the Hole, but Nigel keeps one arm free, and grabs the wrist of Sammy. A look crosses Sammy’s face, as he realizes the danger he’s in, and he struggles to get free of Nigel’s grasp, but the Swede holds on, and wretches the arm. He fights Sammy down to the ground, and locks in the Hyper Extension Arm Lock, and it’s all over for Sammy.

Nigel doesn’t get to celebrate long though, as Marcus Lucillius makes his way back to the ring and starts tossing Nigel into the ring post repeatedly. He drops the Swede face first off the top turnbuckle three times, before leveling him with a running big boot. Still not content, he lifts Nigel up for the Backdrop Driver, delays a few seconds, then drops him. Finally satisfied, Marcus Lucillius stands alone in the ring, as ringside attendants help Nigel to the back.

Rating: C+ (69)

Drake Young is in the interview area, shit eating grin on his face. He says it’s your pleasure to witness Punchline. The RPW Tag Team Champions of Steel and Primus Allen, plus Austin Moore, make their way to join the ringleader. He says that Punchline is just getting started. If you thought what they did last show was funny, what they do tonight will be hilarious. Young gets handed a memo, and reads it real quick, asking off screen if he really has to do this. Fine, he says. Begrudgingly he announces that here are the challengers, Rayne Man and Running Wolf. As soon as those two enter the shot though, Young says they’re out of time. He “apologizes” to them, and walks away, flipping the mic over his shoulder as he leaves.

RPW Tag Team Championship Match
Rayne Man & Running Wolf vs Punchline (Steel & Primus Allen) (c’s) w/ Austin Moore
No feeling out phase for the babyfaces here, as they fire out of the gate, taking early control They take such a command out of the gate, that Drake Young leaves commentary, and heads to ringside to provide a distraction, which swings the momentum back in Punchline’s favor. Punchline takes such a lead in the match, that Drake Young confidently returns to the commentary table. Shortly after he does though, Running Wolf slips out, and avoids a Lariat Powerbomb from Steel and Primus Allen. Wolf makes the tag, and Rayne Man starts lighting up Primus Allen. He launches a dropkick that sends Allen into the ropes, where he rebounds into the grasp of a quickly recovered Rayne Man. Rayne Man floors Primus with a huge Raynemaker, as Running Wolf runs across the ring to knock down Steel, and stand guard against Austin Moore, as the ref counts 3.

Drake Young looks dumbfounded as he rushes to ringside. The ref hands Rayne Man and Running Wolf the titles as Young starts yelling at Primus Allen, who has rolled out of the ring to the floor. He then yells at Austin Moore to get them, but as he climbs on the apron, the new Champions dare him to get in, holding the Tag Titles, ready to strike. Moore thinks better of it, and drops off the apron. Young is throwing a tantrum at ringside. Steel and Austin Moore come to his side, and start to ease him up the aisle, telling him that they’ll get back at them. Young finally starts to calm down, as he starts to walk back to the commentary table. He kicks the barricade in frustration, but hurts his toe. He hops around on one foot, howling in anger, as Rayne Man and Running Man celebrate with the fans.

Rating: D+ (52)

We get a quick promo from both Matthew Keith and Kirk Jameson backstage before each of them comes out through the curtain. Kirk says that when he came to RPW, he didn’t plan on mixing it up with Steve Flash so soon, but sometimes the stars align, and things just break your way. A win tonight could put him in line for an RPW Championship match, and hey, can’t complain about that. Next, Keith comes up to the camera, pauses for a second, shakes his head, and heads through the curtain, a steely look in his eye.

Rating: C (59)

Matthew Keith & Kirk Jameson vs Then, Now, Forever (Steve Flash & Frank Harriet) w/ Matty Faith
Flash and Keith start this match out, but Flash immediately tags out. As he stands on the apron, he tells Keith that he fights on his time. That’s just one perk of being the champion. Keith and Frank tie up, and this match gets underway proper. This match stays evenly matched throughout, with Then, Now, Forever using every trick at their disposal to counter-balance the youth and athleticism of Keith and Jameson. The turning point comes when Faith gets involved one too many times, and he gets tossed from ringside by the ref. Frank and Faith argue with the ref about the decision, with Frank saying that Faith is their towel boy, and his services are needed. The ref was having none of that, as Faith went to the back. Invigorated, Jameson starts firing away on Frank, as Flash starts looking around on the apron. Flash hops off the apron, and grabs his title and heads up the aisle, as Jameson and Keith stare on. He says that he’ll live to fight another day. Keith is incensed, but before he can reach over the ropes to try to tag himself in, Jameson steps away, and lights up Frank Harriet with the Bullseye to pick up the win for his team.

Jameson celebrates on the top turnbuckles, pointing at Flash who has retreated, clutching his RPW Championship. Flash regains his composure, and raises the title high, saying that he’s got more than an ace up his sleeve. He warns Kirk and Keith that they better be careful what they wish for. Kirk dismisses him, and celebrates on all the turnbuckles, as Matthew Keith stands in the center ring, looking at Kirk. The show ends with Keith bailing from the ring, and heading to the back, as Kirk Jameson plays to the crowd.

Oh Drake Young, why you gotta be like that? You're a terrible human being.

KAZEBUSH~!

TNF/Punchline tensions...OMGZ~!

Oh Marcus Lucillius sure didn't plan that thing out as well as he thought. Maybe next time, slugger...you'll eat shit even harder. Or he can just keep murdering fools. Either/or.

RAAAAAAAAAYNEMAKER~!

Seriously though, nicer things couldn't possibly have happened to worse people than Punchline.

Damn Kirk Jameson, you just walk into RPW and snake Matthew Keith's title shot from him? What the fuck dude? You better be glad I just need Steve Flash to get his ass kicked, so I'm willing to let it pass this time. This time....

Championship Wrestling From Boston Presents The Commonwealth Cup: Round One
Thursday Week 1 August 2015 Reggie Lewis Center (New England) Attendance: 2213


Our intrepid nnounce team of Lockett, Buentello and Curran welcome us to Championship Wrestling From Boston and our four big Commonwealth Cup First Round Matches as we are graced with the presence of Ash Campbell and Lisa Bowen coming to the ring. Ash takes the mic and lets everyone know that his focus is now where it always should have been, on taking Boston by storm. And thanks to the attention from the lovely Lisa Bowen, Ash Campbell is going to show the world what the son of Nemesis is truly capable of. Starting by winning this Commonwealth Cup

We go to the back where Regular Joe is prepping for his match tonight when the Purple Pixie Simony Sentinel comes and sits with him. She was disappointed that he didn't get the win last time out but if he lets her be in his corner, she's sure she can give him the support he needs-- she'll watch his back and make sure he gets his chance to shine. Joe understands where she's coming frome and he's...flattered by her attention, but he does things on his own and he's going to get to the top that way. He wishes her luck finding herself a client. Joe gets up to go as Simony tries to explain she doesn't want a client but he's already gone when she says she wants a...partner

We cut to Ekuma coming to the ring then show Katie Cameron with Monster Inc. as she interviews The Monster. Katie asks if this is the year for his unit to dominate and The Monster smiles. He asks what she means because his organization has done nothing but dominate since the day CWB has opened it's doors. Monster Inc. owns Boston, and it's a mere formality that they will own the Commonwealth Cup. And when he and Acid face each other in the finals, the true strength of Monster Inc. will be clear to us all

Cherry Bomb is just coming into her office when Ernest Youngman demands her time. He wants himself a shot at the Openweight Title, now that Spencer Spade has been dealt with once and for all, and Cherry Bomb reminds Youngman that he won't be getting a title shot via the Commonwealth Cup so if he wants a shot he needs to change minds, just as Donnie J comes up. He tells Youngman that he's beaten The Assassin twice, and he doesn't see any reason to make it three times, so as unfortunate as it is for him, he's just going to have to go to the back of the line. Youngman promises that he and Donnie J are not done with each other yet.

We see the new invitee from GSW Fro Sure coming to the ring, when Ash Campbell & Lisa Bowen welcome him to Boston. Ash knows Fro very well from GSW, but this isn't that little playground where the thugs and gangstas run wild. This is what a real wrestling company looks like, and they only play for keeps here. Fro starts to break out a rap and then stops mid-rhyme and says he knows he's not back in LA anymore. This is a different crowd, and they're going to see a different Fro Sure. But one thing's for sure, they're going to see him win. And hey, he might see Ash Campbell in the finals of the Commonwealth Cup, if Ash can even get that far

Phonse Lockett is at the CWB logo with his guests at this time, Felipe Caballero & Henry Bennett. Phonse asks them how Henry Bennett feels about both his tag match tonight against Austin Smooth, and their upcoming Commonwealth Cup match. Felipe Caballero steps in and says that Henry Bennett doesn't have to waste time with words. He is a seasoned veteran of the entire world, and Austin Smooth wishes he could be what Henry Bennett is. But he will find out tonight and in the Commonwealth Cup that he just doesn't measure up
Rating: D (46)

Katie Cameron tries to stop KC Glenn as he goes into the locker room, to talk about his match with Masked Patriot tonight. KC Glenn shakes his head and tells Katie Cameron he's got nothing left to say. He...will rid Boston of the Revolution. He will lay everything on the line to do it. And for Masked Patriot to stop him, he's going to have to kill him. The Sunshine Band is going to cleanse Boston...tonight

The Pilgrim cancels out his opponent at the Commonwealth Cup, Steve Flash gets wiped out by Kirk Drury, and that leaves Acid and Joe...and Acid is just a little bit better than Joe on this evening

Austin Smooth sees Ernest Youngman stewing and tells The Assassin that he has a kind of big tag match coming up, but he doesn't have a partner. He heard that Youngman is looking to make an impact, and if that's the case Austin wouldn't mind taking out a contract...if he's in. Youngman perks up and puts on his sunglasses, and he tells Smooth that he's speaking Youngman's language now, and he'll take that offer.

We go to the CWB logo where The Pilgrim and Masked Patriot stand. Patriot is proud of his ward, for successfully winning tonight and proving that everything that he says about the Revolution is true. It is sweeping through Boston, step by step, and it is overtaking everything in it's way. And KC Glenn wants to draw his line in the sand here, in the Commonwealth Cup, and put an end to the Revolution. Well The Masked Patriot will take KC Glenn up on his offer. He can die trying. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." And tonight, the tree of liberty will drink plentiful

Katie Cameron is at the CWB logo with Nigel Svensson and Anders Thunder to talk about Nigel's first round match coming up next. Nigel smiles and says Anders got to the Quarterfinals last year and he was extremely proud of his partner's performance. It spurred them both to get better, and now you see them standing before you as the first Boston Tag Team Champions. This year, you're going to see even more out of them, and it starts when Nigel Svensson proves the strength of

Nigel (13:54) via Knee Trembler
Dermot O'Logical has a lot on the line, not just in the tournament but he could put he and his partner in line for a Boston Tag Title shot with a win, and he fights as such. Nigel has grown so much over the last two years, and he has gone from losing in the first round in 2013, to not even qualifying for the tournament last year, to proving that he is a champion. He beats the veteran back and then turns his lights out with the Knee Trembler

Commonwealth Cup First Round Match
KC Glenn vs. Masked Patriot
Patriot (17:08) via Patriot Slam
This is a fierce battle, considering the history between the two and Masked Patriot putting his stamp on CWB at the expense of KC Glenn, and Glenn comes out firing looking to put an end to that. Patriot has the trump card of The Pilgrim running interference and it becomes too much for Glenn to overcome. Patriot works Glenn over but the endurance of Glenn kicks back in and he wipes out Pilgrim and goes to work on blasting Patriot out of Boston but he can't Tune Up the Sunshine Band without Pilgrim pulling Kurt Lovenkrantz out of the ring before the three count. Glenn murders Pilgrim again but he walks dead into a Patriot Slam. That gets the 3 count and eliminates KC Glenn from the Commonwealth Cup in the first round
Rating: B- (71)


Patriot and Pilgrim celebrate but KC Glenn pulls himself to the ropes and Masked Patriot shakes his head and tells Pilgrim we do this now. Pilgrim goes after Glenn, who fights him off till Patriot slams Glenn in the back with a chair. Pilgrim hits a scoop slam and then hits the Plymouth Rocker. Masked Patriot then picks up Glenn and hits not one, but two Patriot Slams on the steel chair.

The Pilgrim goes into his goodie grab-bag and hands something Masked Patriot. Patriot unfurls a Red, White, and Black flag and drapes it over the body of KC Glenn, laying him to rest, as Championship Wrestling from Boston comes to an end

Oh look, Monster Inc dominating the field. Go figure. #NonSter

Goddamn it, Regular Joe, let Simony help you. it's not like you've had a ton of success on your own.

I liked Fro Sure's debut. i liked the introduction.

NIIIIIIIGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL~

Glenn, you said that New England Revolution would have to kill you... and they obliged... You dun dug your own grave on that one. Jesus fuck were they unkind to The Superstar of the Next Generation.

A lot of advancement with this show. Good start to the Commonwealth Cup. Bravo.

Also, Every 70+ score you get makes me want to drive my head through a table.

Main Show

The show opens with Clifford Crash and Tony Chambers on the commentary table. They say that Jerome Turner wasn’t able to make it to tonight’s show, so they’re welcoming back Chloe Dean. Dean enters and says that she’s happy to be back. The trio runs down the show, informing us we’ll be opening with an RPW Title match with Steve Flash defending his title against Kirk Jameson. Tonight’s main event will be a rematch from one of the top matches in RPW history, as Dean Daniels requested to face Matthew Keith. Also tonight is the return of former RPW Champion, KC Glenn.

Rating: E+ (34)

Steve Flash © w/ Frank Harriet & Matty Faith vs Kirk Jameson

Then, Now, Forever are out in full force tonight, and they make their presence known throughout this match. Each time though, Kirk scraps back into the fray. Late in the match, Flash and Jameson are fighting on the outside, and Kirk starts to get the upper hand. He runs the champ into the ring post, and goes to roll him in, but Matty Faith gets a little too close for Jameson’s liking. Jameson unloads on Faith with the Bullseye on the outside. He re-enters the ring, and goes to cover Flash, but he gets pulled face first into the bottom turnbuckle. Flash hurriedly rolls to the outside, and grabs his Title, and starts to head to the back. Frank and Faith follow Flash to the back, and are out of sight by the time Jameson gets back to his feet at the count of 9. The ref hits 10, and the bell rings.

Jameson asks the ref what happened as he’s getting his hand raised, as Then, Now, Forever come back out from the back and stand in the aisle, as Flash holds the title high, mocking Jameson. Jameson says he’s not through with Flash yet, as Then, Now Forever stand tall.

A few minutes later, we see Tony Chambers by the curtain, wearing his Disposable Heroes bowtie. He says that last time, Kazebushi, Mystery Man, and Slayyer were all separated. After facing their various challenges, the trio managed to reunite at the end of the menacing maze. They’re not out of the woods yet, as a new field of challengers has appeared. (Disposable Heroes comes out from behind the curtain and strikes their pose as Chambers finishes). Our heroes find themselves in front of their most difficult challenge yet. We’ll find out if they prevail, tonight, on R. P. W!

Chloe Dean is in the interview area, and she welcomes back, for the first time in months, KC Glenn. Glenn says his return is bittersweet. He says he’s glad to be back, but, and he feels he’s the one who should let the fans know, tonight will be his last appearance in RPW. He says he got a contract offer from CGC that he couldn’t turn down. He loves it here in RPW, but he says he wants to take care of his parents, and this new job will help him provide for them. He asks for the forgiveness of the fans, and promises that tonight, he’ll give whoever he faces an ass kicking, for old time’s sake. Unfortunately, Drake Young, Steel, and Austin Moore come sauntering into frame. Drake Young asks if he heard Glenn right when he said this is his last night. Glenn nods, and Young laughs. He then asks if he heard right when he said he was going to CGC. Again, Glenn nods and Young laughs harder. Young says he’ll be sure that the CGC branch of Punchline gives him a warm welcome then. Young continues, saying that it was so sweet, him wanting to take care of his parents. NOT. You’re just trying to suck up to these humorless jokers who still live in their parents’ basement. Glenn takes offense to him, and he says that he thinks he’s found the perfect opponent for tonight. Young smiles, says “sure buddy”, and leaves the frame, leaving an irate Glenn alone in the interview area.

Rating: D+ (51)

KC Glenn vs Drake Young

Young comes out on fire for this one, feeding off the crowd’s energy, and beating the loudmouth from post to post. He has this match firmly in hand, and sets up Young to Tune up the Sunshine Band, but Young slips out of it, and tosses Glenn towards the ropes. A huge right hand from Steel as Moore distracts the ref dazes Glenn, and Young rolls him up from behind. Moore leaves the ref, and Glenn is unable to kickout.

Drake Young via Rollup
Rating: C (61)

Drake Young celebrates as if he just won the lottery. He is handed a mic by Austin Moore, and he starts to laugh between breaths. He calls Glenn an idiot who lets his emotions get the best of him. He says that Glenn was already scheduled for a match tonight, and it’s against an angry man. He says Glenn was so focused on buttering up the crowd, he didn’t look at the listing, and see that he had Marcus Lucillius tonight. Young starts laughing again, before parting with a “good luck, chump” to Glenn.

Rating: D+ (52)

Chloe Dean is back in the interview area, and she’s pleased to introduce RPW newcomer, Kip Keenan. Kip enters wearing a white sports coat and his wrestling trunks. Keenan says that it’s always fun going to new places. It’s great to try to find out who the sucker in the room is, and he’s got a hunch at who it might be. Dean laughs, and asks who Keenan thinks is the sucker. Keenan says that he can’t say yet, can’t tip his hand you see, but, he pulls out a deck of cards and draws the top one, pointing it at Chloe, it’s always good to have an ace up your sleeve. Dean laughs, and Kip’s façade starts to drop, and he asks Dean if it was an ace, it was supposed to be an ace. She says no. Keenan turns the card around and see’s that it was a two of clubs. He says damn it, and that he needs to work on that one. He hangs his head in embarrassment and leaves the interview area, to head to the ring for his RPW debut match.

Rating: D (42)

Kip Keenan vs Paul Steadyfast

Kip shows some spirit in his match with the long time industry vet, but his inexperience shows, as he’s quickly dispatched by the more well-versed Steadyfast.

KC Glenn vs Marcus Lucillius

Lucillius, still incensed after last show’s loss, comes out and imposes his will onto the smaller KC Glenn. Lucillius bends the rules as far as he can, using every second of the five count, thumbing Glenn in the eye while he held him in a headlock, and choking Glenn on the ropes. Glenn finds his opening though when Lucillius goes for a legdrop, and misses. Glenn Takes that opening to catch his breath, using the ropes to pull himself to his feet. Lucillius bulrushes Glenn, but the conductor of the Sunshine Band pulls down the top rope, and sends the bigger man crashing to the outside. Glenn pumps himself up, and launches himself over the top rope with a plancha onto Lucillius. Glenn proceeds to use the ringside environment to inflict some damage to Lucillius, before he rolls him back into the ring, and gets a nearfall. Glenn’s feeling it now, as he picks up the pace and brings the fight to Lucillius. Glenn sets up to Tune up the Sunshine Band, and drops Marcus Lucillius with it, but the gladiator kicks out at two and a half. Glenn is up stunned, looking at the crowd and the ref. He goes for it again, but Lucillius powers out. Glenn’s rattled, as he tries to pick up the pace again, but he can’t seem to get into the gear he needs, and his offense is quickly, and easily countered by the power of Lucillius. One inverted Piledriver later, and Glenn is looking at the ceiling for the second time tonight.

Lucillius is standing over Glenn, laughing, as the crowd chants “Thank you Glenn”. Lucillius does not take kindly to that, as he picks Glenn up, and tosses him into the corner followed by some clubbing blows. Glenn is dazed, as Lucillius gloats, soaking up the crowd’s boos. He grabs Glenn, and looks to hit him with the Backdrop Driver, when Nigel Svensson comes down to ringside, distracting Lucillius. Glenn manages to get away, and Nigel helps Glenn to the back, as Lucillius swears he’s going to break Nigel. At the end of the Aisle, Nigel gives Glenn a hug, and raises his hand, giving Glenn his last curtain call.

Chloe Dean welcomes Matthew Keith to the interview area. Dean asks Keith how he feels about Steve Flash’s title match with Kirk Jameson. Keith says that the match just confirmed what he has known for months: Steve Flash is a coward who can’t cut it anymore, so he hides behind his friends, or people too dumb to know better. Dean then asks if he thinks this match tonight will earn him a title shot if he wins. Keith replies that he doesn’t know. He feels like some force has been keeping Flash just out of his reach, but soon, he’ll learn that you can’t escape Matthew Keith. Sooner or later, you and I will square off, and when that day comes -- Keith is cut off by Dean Daniels entering the frame. Daniels tells Keith that he got lucky last time, and that Keith better not look past him tonight, otherwise he’ll introduce Keith to a new kind of pain. Keith, annoyed at being interrupted, pushes his way past Daniels, and heads to the ring. Daniels leaves the area shortly after, leaving Chloe alone.

Rating: D (42)

Matthew Keith vs Dean Daniels

Dean Daniels starts the match trying to use misdirection to keep Keith off his game. After a short back and forth, resulting in a stalemate, Keith bites on a jab step by Daniels, and steps right into a takedown by Daniels. Daniels starts working over the arms of Keith with stomps, kneedrops, and holds, hoping to limit what Keith can do. Dean tries to transition submission holds from one arm to the other, but Keith manages to fight out, sending Daniels to the corner. The two start trading strikes, with Keith shaking his arm out after each blow he delivers. Keith grits his teeth though, and starts to gain the upper hand. A stiff knee to the gut drives Daniels to the canvas, and Keith takes control. Keith focuses on using knee strikes to soften up the shoulders of Daniels. Keith goes to lock in the Proton Lock, but Daniels manages to block it long enough for him to bite the forearm of Keith. Daniels looks to take advantage of this opening, but his window shuts quickly, as Keith recovers, and redoubles his efforts. He fights Daniels back to the mat, and this time, successfully locks in the Proton Lock. Daniels fights, but quickly taps, as Keith cinches the hold in tighter.

Keith celebrates his win, when suddenly he’s interrupted by Matty Faith. Faith has a mic, and introduces himself as the “Junior Messenger of Then, Now, Forever”, with all the pomp and condescension you’d expect from a trust fund kid. He says that he’s here to inform Matthew Keith that what he did tonight was like, totally pointless. Steve Flash wasn’t even impressed with what Keith did tonight. In fact – Before Faith can continue, Keith bails from the ring, and chases Faith around the ring. Faith scurries away, and heads up the aisle, and takes the mic from the interview area, and says to Keith that when he talks to his dad tonight, your dad is totally gonna get beat up by the great Christian Faith. Keith can be heard saying “really?” off mic, as Faith looks pleased with himself. Keith disregards Faith, and climbs the turnbuckle, as the show closes.

Dammit, fight like a man, Flash...fight and lose honorably like the Disposable Heroes.

Drake Young tears it up with KC Glenn and wins with a fucking rollup? I bet you're going to use more Drake Young in matches now, arentcha?

Is Kip Keenan going to end up like Sammy the Shark? Gamblers don't do too hot in RPW after all.

Marcus Lucillius continues to be a bad, bad man. If KC Glenn can't stop him, what hope does Nigel Svensson?

MATHHEW KEITH, KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES~! Eat that shit Dean Daniels...

But why you gotta be like that Matty Faith? What a turdball, getting his old man to do his dirty work in another promotion? Such a little shit. He gon' get his, man.

Nice show, and welcome to the 70 club. Maybe you've got the hang of this after all
