New England Championship Wrestling returns to live action on Saturday night, April 26th at the National Guard Armory, 1000 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA for SPRING BREAKDOWN. Bell time is 7:00 PM.
Events took place last Friday night at the South Middle School in Brockton, MA that have created controversy surrounding the NECW Triple Crown Championship.
Max Bauer defeated Rick Fuller by pinfall last Friday night, however with the referee down, the fall was counted by Dennis Ginich, a vice principal at South Middle School. While the title was awarded to Bauer, Brian Cairo has filed a protest on behalf of Rick Fuller saying that the result should not count because an unlicensed official made the three count. NECW officials have taken the matter under advisement and will have a ruling on Saturday night at SPRING BREAKDOWN.
Regardless of the committee’s decision, the main event is a very special triple threat match with the NECW Triple Crown Championship on the line. Big Rick Fuller, Max Bauer and Antonio “The Promise” Thomas will go at each other this Saturday night in a triple threat match for the championship. Fuller and Bauer’s rivalry is coming to a boil, especially after last Friday’s Brockton event. Thomas, who missed a title opportunity last month, due to injury has inserted himself into the title picture due to his interference between Bauer and Fuller at GENESIS 7. Who is the true NECW Triple Crown Champion? Anything could happen this Saturday night at SPRING BREAKDOWN!
NECW Tag Team Champions, “Rocket” Fred Curry and Chase Del Monte have signed a return match against PRIDE (Dan Freitas & Brian Nunes) with the titles on the line. Last month, PRIDE turned on Curry & Del Monte after coming up short in their match, delivering a vicious post-match attack. The champions have demanded another match against the former NECW & PWF Tag Team Champions – one of the most storied teams in the history of the promotion. PRIDE have made it clear that they are going all out to recapture the tag team titles and dominate the tag team division in NECW.
In a special grudge match, it will be “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards taking up the cause of D.C. Dillinger, who was suspended last month for his attack on Elektra Arion. It will be Edwards taking on “The Golden Greek” Alex Arion in what should be a heated contest.
Also signed for SPRING BREAKDOWN is a special IRON 8 Showcase Match. The 5th Annual IRON 8 Championship will be taking place in Quincy on Saturday night, May 31 and this match will be viewed by the championship committee to determine who may be granted a spot in this year’s tournament. It will be “The Real Deal” Brandon Locke, who was a finalist in last year tournament, facing Team Cairo member, Scott Osbourne.
