New England Championship Wrestling packed the Cove Community Center last Saturday night, May 9th for the 2015 IRON 8 Championship – without a doubt – one of the best cards in the 15 year history of the promotion. No one who was there will ever forget this one!
In the opening round, Brandon Thurston advanced taking out “The Mind Eraser” Mike Graca. Great effort by both men. “Pure Talent” Chris Escobar defeated Nick Farenheight. “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy defeated “All Good” Anthony Greene. Genesis defeated NECW Television Champion, “Sensational” Scott Levesque (The title was not on the line).
Slyck Wagner Brown defeated NECW Heavyweight Champion, Brad Hollister to recapture the title and become a three time NECW Heavyweight Champion. After the match, SWB and Hollister had heated words and had to be pulled apart. Hollister demanded an immediate rematch, to which he was entitled. NECW GM, Paul Richard granted that request for June 6 in Everett, but with “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy as Special Guest Referee.
In the IRON 8 Final – a 4 way, 45 Minute Iron Man Match – “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy took the trophy by winning 3 falls, Genesis had 2 falls, Chris Escobar had 2 falls and Brandon Thurston 2 falls.
Words cannot do justice to this event. Every match was spectacular, Huge standing ovation for SWB regaining the NECW Heavyweight Championship. Huge standing ovation for “The Masshole” Mike McCarthy.
Thank you to a fantastic crowd who were into every second of it!
