New England Championship Wrestling chalked up its 7th straight sell out crowd this past Saturday night, June 30th at the National Guard Armory, in Quincy, MA with a 7:00 PM bell time for GLOBAL IMPACT, an international extravaganza.
In the opening contest, The Canadian Superstars & Scott Osbourne defeated 2D Edge & Triplelicious with Natalia. The Canadian Superstars told their manager Brian Cairo before the match that they didnâ€™t need him and sent him to the back.Â Could the Candians be changing their ways?
â€œThe Golden Greekâ€ Alex Arion defeated â€œSensationalâ€ Scott Reed. After the match Max Bauer and â€œThe Talentâ€ TJ Richter attempted to attack Arion but stopped when threatened with suspension by NECW Officials. Arion challenged Richter to a singles match to get his brother Frankie reinstated. Richter countered that heâ€™d accept if the match were a gauntlet match where if Arion lost, he also would be forced to retire. Alex Arion accepted over the concerns of NECW officials.
In a World Women’s Wrestling Feature bout, Lexxus defeated WWW Champion Tanya Lee with Sean Gorman in a non-title match by pinfall with a Northern Lights suplex.Â Lexxus is now the undisputed #1 contender for the title.
In the final first-round match of the NWA World Heavyweight Title Tournament, New Japan Pro Wrestling and Irelandâ€™s Fergal Devitt made his return to New England Championship Wrestling and scored the victory over NWA Australiaâ€™s Mikey Nicholls via submission in a thrilling all action bout to advance in the tournament.
Handsome Johnny took advantage of â€œBigâ€ Rick Fullerâ€™s distraction of his opponent â€œThe Human Nightmareâ€ Evan Siks to get an important pinfall win.
The Dynasty of Champions came to the ring for NECW President, Sheldon Goldbergâ€™s presentation of the 2007 Iron 8 Trophy to â€œDie Hardâ€ Eddie Edwards. The presentation really illustrated the success of the Dynasty as it showcased all of their titles and accolades: Tanya Lee the WWW Champion, NECW Tag Team Champion Eddie Edwards who is now the two-time Iron 8 Champion, and DC Dillinger the NECW Tag Team and Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion. Sean Gorman announced that their open challenge had been answered and to bring out Edwardsâ€™opponent.
In a great back and forth battle, â€œDie Hardâ€ Eddie Edwards endured the high-impact, high-flying offense of Kid Mikaze winning by pin fall following a cradlebomb.Â
â€œStraight Edgeâ€ Brian Fury defeated â€œBigâ€ Max Bauer in a hard-fought contest with a succession of superkicks leading to the pin fall.
In the main event, NECW Triple Crown Champion DC Dillinger had his hands full defending against the undefeated â€œBigâ€ Rick Fuller. Fuller looked to have his first NECW championship wrapped up when he grabbed Dillinger for a chokeslam when Evan Siksâ€™ ring music began to play. Fuller turned his attention to the entance way and away from his opponent for a brief second enabling the wily Triple Crown Champion to roll him up for a ropes-assisted schoolboy pin fall. Dillinger escaped the ring area mindful of Fullerâ€™s presence. Evan Siks jumped the guardrail from behind the fans and attacked Fuller. From the backstage area came Fury who attacked Dillinger. All four men broke into a huge chaotic brawl that took every member of the NECW locker room, security team, and officials to finally break up. A very exciting end to an amazing night of action!
