NECW Spring Breakdown April 26!

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.

The main event is a very special triple threat match with the NECW Triple Crown
Championship on the line. Champion, Big Rick Fuller has been ordered to defend
against not one, but two opponents at SPRING BREAKDOWN. Antonio "The Promise"
Thomas, who missed his chance against Fuller due to injury last month, had
negotiated his way into a title shot for April 26th. However, last month, the
giant-like Max Bauer won the #1 contender position defeating "Die Hard" Eddie
Edwards. While Bauer was not successful against Fuller last month, the
championship committee citing the controversial way last month's match ended,
has granted Bauer the chance to both go after Fuller's title and get revenge on
Antonio Thomas at the same time. This is one battle where anything could

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.

In a World Women's Wrestling feature match, former WWW Champion, Lexxus sees
action against Amber.

The self-proclaimed "Future Superstar" Ryan Matthews squares off the Oriental
star, Makoto, who will be making his debut in Quincy.

All this, plus Jason Blade and Team Nightmare in action and more.
