411 Indy Update: NECW Thoughts, ONS Goes Crazy, Malice, Results
Posted by Josh Nason on 08.11.2002
Friday night's NECW show in Somerville, Mass, - the fed's 2nd Anniversary show - was a great one as always, featuring great local talent and the Briscoe Brothers of ROH/New Jersey fame. Great job overall and their next show on October 4 should be a solid effort as well. Happy birthday to Sheldon Goldberg's NECW!

NECW Tag Tourney Semifinals: Slyk Wagner Brown/April Hunter beat One Night Stand (followed by a bizzare incident where Ronnie Lishus/Edward Xctasy began shooting on management in an expletive-filled tirade which resulted in their dismissal from the building. The two actually stole the new Tag Belts as well, disappointing Goldberg for the final match.), Egomaniacs (Johnny Idol/Mike Steele) beat All Knighters, Paul Tyrrell beat Aaron Morrison, Phoenix beat Mercedes Martinez by dq, Antonio Thomas beat Maverick Wild by dq, NECW Champion Alex Arion beat Justin Powers, Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe went to a draw, Egomaniacs beat Slyk Wagner Brown/April Hunter to win the NECW Tag Titles.
And as always, referee Josh Laprell was a solid star.
