Narrator: It is Sunday afternoon in Hudson Yards. Hudson Yards is the headquarters of where most of the Five Boroughs Wrestling stars live if they do not travel. The 5BW Facility is where the classes for Softball Night Academy take place. Meagan G is one of the trainers as well as the general manager of Five Boroughs Wrestling. Her best friend, Jamey Caresalle, happens to be one of the commentators and the host of Destination with Sarah McCarthy.
At the table during a late lunch, Meagan G and Jamey Caresalle are looking at pictures, reminiscing about their careers.
Meagan G: I really want to show Kelsea this when she is of age.
Jamey Caresalle: Don’t show her that. She will ask a lot of questions about why her mother was like that in the past.
Meagan G: Are you saying that I was bad-looking?
Jamey Caresalle: Phil wouldn’t be happy if I was looking at you like that.
Meagan shakes her head.
Meagan G: I kind of wish I never got into this mess in the first place. As a matter of fact, this month is the same month we signed our contracts with the Canadian Vendetta League.
Jamey sighs, knowing that Canadian Vendetta League was something that would cause the first of their many nightmares.
Jamey Caresalle: Oh god….do not get me started on this.
Meagan G: What do you actually remember?
September of 2006: Jamey Caresalle’s first match in Canadian Vendetta League against Danny Doorells.
Narrator: Jamey Caresalle won his match by his finisher, which would start off one hell of a career in the company, but it was a little amount of time before it would go downhill. The following week, Meagan G would be behind him, and they would team up against Danny Doorells and Liz McCan, a match they would both lose.
Jamey Caresalle: Honestly, I really don’t remember that much from the first week of Canadian Vendetta League. I just know that it was a blur. I will say this, your match with Nicole Phoenix had everyone talking.
Same Month: Meagan faced off against Nicole Phoenix and lost in a valiant effort, but Nicole said this was a learning experience for Meagan. While Meagan gave Nicole respect and called her “mentor,” Nicole did not give Meagan the same back and would blast her for a total of two years.
Meagan G: Nicole Phoenix. Where to begin with her?
Jamey Caresalle: Everyone saw that match. I was impressed with it, and everyone that had your back, but Nicole? She was on some level and not in a good way.
Meagan G: It’s like everyone that faced off against her, she was threatened by. I remember Liz, God rest her soul, walking out of the promotion right after CVL went big. Liz said, “Fuck This” I am out.
Jamey Caresalle: Do you remember the comment she made towards her when Liz was pregnant with her first child?
Meagan G: Bright as fucking day. It was….ahhhhh
Jamey Caresalle: They wanted to make fun of us, especially the person you faced off against, next
Narrator: We went to an airing of the match of Michelle Treduex facing off against Meagan back in October of 2006 for the Divas Championship. Before the match, Meagan was attacked by Drake Garrn for her weight, which embarrassed the hell out of Meagan. Jamey would come out and play even, but Drake would attack him. We also go to an airing of when Jamey and Danny teamed up against the Insane Clown Posse. Yes, you read that right.
Jamey Caresalle: You know, after all those years, I still wonder about what could’ve gone differently.
Meagan G: They knew what they were doing. You were the outcast if you did not side with Nicole Phoenix, Canadian World Order, or anyone associated with them. Though, as they would say, the outcasts do win, or one of them.
Jamey Caresalle: Didn’t you defeat Amanda Doorells at the last show of the year?
Meagan G: I did, and I also became the first Fatale Champion. They didn’t even acknowledge that.
Jamey Caresalle: Bastards.
Meagan G: However, World Onslaught League, which was their next name because CVL’s name was taken away from them, but it was Sean that got the last laugh….or as we thought.
Narrator: In the summer of 2007, Meagan G, Jamey Caresalle, Danny Doorells, Amanda Doorells, Liz McCan, and a few others were tired of how everything went down in the company and opened up Underground Championship Wrestling. From there, it was a movement and a place where everyone could be themselves.
Meagan G: Underground Championship Wrestling from late 2007 to mid-2008 was the place to be.
Jamey Caresalle: Hell, we had everyone there, and it didn’t matter. Your then-boyfriend, Brad, was also there too.
Meagan G: And you know the funny thing about that? He had freaking Shut Your Mouth by Pain.
Jamey facepalms and laughs.
Jamey Caresalle: And you want to know something? That was the biggest FU.
Meagan G: It was, but let me tell you something…
Meagan looks at him.
Meagan G: When I won the UCW Fatale Championship, I felt validated.
Narrator: In September of 2007, at an event called “Whiplash,” Meagan G finally won the Fatale Championship from Tori Doorells. However, at Saint Nicholas Day Massacre, Meagan would drop the championship to Liz McCan. Meagan was fighting back and forth along the line for the title, but it was the Ring General Championship she wanted the most. At the same event, Jamey Caresalle would drop the Electric Championship to Matt During.
In 2008, Jamey Caresalle would become Electric Champion on two more occasions, while Meagan’s quest for the Ring General Championship was cut short due to people interfering. In Meagan’s hometown, she defeated Brenda Miller in a Highway to Hell match. In Jamey’s case, a big chance would come.
Jamey Caresalle: When you said “validated,” I think all of us were, but it was me that had the chance of a lifetime.
Meagan G: The Underground Championship World Championship against CJ, am I right?
Jamey Caresalle: Yes, Ma’am.
Jamey closes his eyes.
Jamey Caresalle: You see, CJ grew up over the “DJ” years that he was going by, BUT there were a lot of demons that he went through. Working with CVL at the time and UCW, you could see the pain.
Meagan G: I have a question.
Jamey Caresalle: Shoot.
Meagan G: Sabrina Baker, his sister as you know of, tends to point the blame at Amy Harrison, his ex-wife, and Veronica Rachelle, his ex-girlfriend. Do you think that it’s CJ’s fault?
Jamey Caresalle: I don’t want to blame him because I feel like it’s not his fault for what he did. It was the stunt he pulled in our Triple Cage match for the title he pulled, but at the same time, it was the near end for me and my in-ring career.
Narrator: December 2008 for the UCW World Heavyweight Championship. Jamey Caresalle and CJ were facing each other in the championship. What it looked like Jamey was about to win the championship. He would eventually be pushed by CJ and go through the cage. CJ followed, but he paid the consequences. Jamey did lose the match, but CJ paid the price to retain his title in the end.
Meagan G: I assume your neck was the start.
Jamey Caresalle: Trust and believe it was it, but I saw CJ go through and land wrong. I couldn’t move, and I am lucky to be alive after that. However, in 2009, when I won the World Championship from CJ, he was struggling, and every time he moved, I tried helping, but he refused. Hell, I even got the trainers, but someone, I don’t know who told me to stay back.
Meagan G: And that was the start of the beginning of the end because, at that time when you won, nobody was caring about that place because the trash was coming in.
Jamey Caresalle: I know where you are going.
Narrator: 2009 had to be the worst year in UCW history because people like Chase Hudson would come in. Meagan G was on top of the Women’s Division for two years, but unlike Chase, Meagan earned her stuff. Chase was carried, especially at Death March, where she breezed through everyone. Jamey Caresalle was also at the event and on the losing team. His neck was hurting and couldn’t go through. Everyone in that company was protesting and did things THEY wanted to do, but according to management, it was work with it or be punished. On top of that, the trash would come in even more.
Meagan G: 2009 in that company was fuck all. You had people like Chase Hudson, who I had to carry A LOT, and then you have people like Scarlett Troy, who did not belong there at all.
Jamey Caresalle: Didn’t Ashlee Parvez nearly attack her?
Meagan G: Attack her? Do you mean fought her to the point where they had to be separated? Hell Yeah!
Jamey Caresalle: That place was not the same when everyone left.
Meagan G: You are correct but take a look at this.
Meagan G goes into the box where the pictures are. She pulls out a letter from the management. The day when everyone was fired.
Meagan G: Here’s the letter.
Narrator: In the Summer of 2009, two days after Meagan’s crushing defeat, she received a letter from Amanda Doorells stating that prior to Meagan losing the championship, Chase was winning the title after a conversation from her ex-boyfriend, Steve *Bleep*. The letter also stated that if Meagan wanted to win the Ring General Championship, she would carry her opponent. When everyone spoke up about it, all of them, except Meagan G, Dora Richardson, and Jamey Caresalle, got fired. The letter also stated that politics would be played and that Meagan would be going downhill. Amanda Doorells signed off and said that this company will close with the jokes that are there. Meagan must do something.
Jamey Caresalle: I cannot believe what was said to you in that note.
Meagan G: She saw it coming, hell, right when I won the Ring General Championship for the first time after I went through hell by having my knee killing me, it was the week after that you and I had a tag team match, and we were buried by Chase and CJ.
Jamey Caresalle: Right then and there, I knew I was done. I couldn’t handle it anymore.
Meagan G: OH! And I had to defend my title against that pile of hot garbage Ryan O’Reilly….
Jamey Caresalle: Didn’t he say that once he wins the title, he was going to invite you to a party?
Meagan shakes her head
Meagan G: Please don’t remind me of that. It was weeks later that the end was near….you saw it, we all saw it, and it came.
Narrator: On November 4th, 2009, Underground Championship Wrestling would shut their doors after their show Controversial Crusade. Meagan G and Jamey Caresalle would be there with everyone when the doors shut. Right after the event, Meagan G went back to school and got her degree in Communication, while Jamey was told that he could wrestle only lightly. In October of 2010, a video was sent to the ones that were still employed. With everyone coming back, Meagan G would take matters into her own hands.
Meagan G: So, when the video came out, I saw that Nicole Phoenix was in talks of signing on with the promotion. I was angry, and I knew that I would be pushed to the side if she was around.
Jamey Caresalle: To be honest, when you told me that after I was offered the Batting Cage, I knew that trouble would come.
Meagan G: You think? The promoter and she shook hands, and he KNEW that nobody liked her, especially me. Dude, I was on the verge of quitting once 2011 hit, but he wanted me to stay because I was money and an original.
Jamey Caresalle: Money? Was that told to anyone else?
Meagan G: Yeah, Chase Hudson, T-Bag, Dora, and Shawn were told that, but I was the important one. I said, “If I was important, then why are you treating me like dog shit?”
Jamey shakes his head and rolls his eyes.
Meagan G: I did tell him that let me do things MY way, give me the pen and the paper, and I will write the story.
Jamey claps for this.
Jamey Caresalle: And you just did that.
Narrator: In 2011, it was all Meagan G as she wrote her story against Elle Zimmerman, a long-standing feud. They had matches at Death March, where Meagan’s team won the match, Meagan became the Ring General Champion. Along the way, Chase Hudson lost the Fatale Championship to Chanel Price and became World Champion, but Meagan’s series with Elle was the talk of the fed for a lot of reasons. It was at Ragnarok III that would have everyone talking.
Jamey Caresalle: Can someone tell me why this match had to be the second main event? This was THE main event of that show!
Meagan G: Because traditionally, the championship match is last. We know Chase was champion, but that main event was downright bad.
Jamey Caresalle: The fans were not into it.
Meagan G: Exactly, they were, but there were consequences in that match. After I did the suicide dive, I fucked my neck up and was out for months. I shouldn’t have competed in the ladder match, but alas, I had to, which messed my neck up even more.
Jamey Caresalle: Plus, I was asked if I wanted a shot in the main event of the Saint Nicholas Day Massacre when I filled in for you, and the fans loved me being back, but on the next show, I explained that I couldn’t do so.
Meagan G: And I was still the talk of that show when the double turn happened.
Meagan gets a smirk on her face, but the smirk turns into a frown.
Jamey Caresalle: That heel turn was brilliantly done by you.
Meagan G: It was something that I wanted to do for a long time. Ever since I started, I was the good guy, but with frustrations that were going on. It was time, and UCW needed to know what it was….
Narrator: In 2012, Meagan’s heel turn was about to take off, and she was doing everything she could do to make this work. However, the company was starting to fall. The company’s breaking point was in February where Meagan and Chase were supposed to team up against Elle Lynn (formally Zimmerman) and another partner. That match was changed to Meagan G and Jenna Hoffe vs. Elle Lynn and Janet Holmes. It was the show after that.
Jamey Caresalle: I remember when management was ANGRY and was screaming at everyone. Once they got to the Prices and your ex-boyfriend, it was like Chanel wasn’t guilty of what she did.
Meagan rolls her eyes.
Meagan G: She and the promoter had a thing going. It’s like, if you are pretty enough, you are going to be with me regarding him while most of us wrestle.
Jamey Caresalle: Remember when the penalty box match was 8 on 2 or 9 on 2? He was like the only person to pin this person is going to be the person by the name of “Cha-Nel”
Meagan shakes her head.
Meagan G: Dora said that the whole thing was bad, and knowing that this was her hometown of Toronto, she had to be out there. Even being in her hometown of Toronto, that was Dora’s moment, to be honest. Let’s be real about something.
Meagan clears her throat.
Meagan G: UCW from 2010-2012 was possibly the biggest nightmare of my career and my life.
Jamey nods and agrees.
Narrator: The company would finally crumble in 2012 after a failed comeback. Nobody had the shine, and nobody would want to deal with it. Kelly Penkzee-Nelson would get a measure of revenge by defeating Chase Hudson in her final match in 2018, and years prior, she would do so with T-Bag. Meagan G and Jamey Caresalle were asked questions from Softball Night Academy graduate Tori Colbert, who was only 15 years old when this was happening. Here is a candidate discussion from Tori, Meagan, and Jamey.
Tori Colbert: Do you two have any regret about taking part in Canadian Vendetta League and Underground Championship Wrestling?
Meagan G: CVL, yes, I do because of the way Jamey and I were treated, UCW to an extent because, in 2007-2008, our roster was our best. Kind of like the current Five Boroughs Wrestling Roster.
Jamey Caresalle: UCW was our life, our culture, and the fun. It wasn’t fun when we had to deal with all the bullshit that happened.
Tori Colbert: Do you feel like my uncle and my aunt’s firing was uncalled for?
Meagan G: Absolutely. BPN was about to peak, and AC had just begun.
Jamey Caresalle: The story that happened was just not good and wouldn’t play today in the current climate. I even spoke up about it and said that this was wrong.
Tori Colbert: How did you feel about Chase Hudson being World Heavyweight Champion, knowing that you never became the champion? Also, how did you feel with Nicole Phoenix finally showing up, Meagan?
Meagan G: Disgusted because here I was busting ass and working as hard to be on top. After all the cuts and bruises that I went through, from knee injuries and neck injuries that caused me to retire last year, I should’ve been on top. Now, as for Nicole? Well, you know what I am going to say there, and we leave it as that.
Tori Colbert: Finally, what advice would you give to the upcoming students in Softball Night Academy that want to do this, especially what you went through?
Meagan G: You can have the time of your life and have fun until it’s too late. That’s what I should’ve learned.
Jamey Caresalle: Save your body, mind, and soul. That’s what I would say.
Narrator: Meagan G and Jamey Caresalle are retired and still have careers in wrestling. Meagan G is the current General Manager of 5BW and the headteacher of Softball Night Academy. She is married and happily a mother. Jamey Caresalle is a commentator and likes giving insights. Even though their careers within CVL/WOL and UCW are long gone, they still have good memories, but the scars are still there for them. They had to get this out to know the truth.
We’ve reached out to some people from both promotions, and surprisingly, we heard from four, with one not getting back to us.
Representative of Nicole Phoenix: Meagan and Jamey have every right to be upset with me, and I am appalled for the behavior I displayed towards Meagan when she was walking around with her daughter. I am a mother myself, and I shouldn’t have acted like that. I am proud of what they are doing now, and I can say that the next time they are in the Toronto area, I would love to talk it out with them and bury the hatchet.
Representative of Chase Hudson: Meagan G will always be my rival, and I have a lot of respect for her for what she’s done. I can’t blame her for being mad because I did take the spotlight from her. She deserved to have everything. Jamey too. I just feel bad for everything.
CJ: My sister is a part of 5BW with the Damned Ones, and even though I had a career like them, my behavior was uncalled for towards everyone. I may not like them, but they brought awareness. That’s all I can say.
A representative for the promoter of UCW: If they had spoken up sooner, things could’ve been different. In this case, I can understand why they are both upset with everything, and quite frankly, I am upset for everything because I blew chances to make things right.
Narrator: We tried to contact people from the Canadian Vendetta League, but there was no response.
