Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA)
SINGLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT for the
TWA TAG TEAM TITLES
Sunday, June 6, 2010
at the FLYERS SKATE ZONE
601 Laurel Oak Road
Voorhees, New Jersey 08043
BELL TIME – 2PM
* Sponsored in part by Lopresti Family JIFFY LUBES
NIGHTMARES DO COME TRUE
One of the most massive and dangerous tag teams in the world today are coming to the TWA on June 6th to compete in the Tag-Team Title Tournament…they are the Maifu & Saifu, the 848 lbs Nigerian Nightmares, with their manager Voodoo Princess Sheeta!!!
The Nightmares are one of the most feared tag teams in wrestling today, as they have been leaving a trail of broken bones and beaten bodies all along the east coast. Made in the mold of The Wild Samoans, the Ugandan Giant, Kamala, The Headhunters and the Zambuie Express, the Nightmares combine a unique blend of size, power, savagery and agility that has had opponents scratching their heads trying to figure out how to take down these two behemoths. Before you even get a chance to get over the eerie ring entrance of the Nightmares, they are right on top of their opponents, tearing them apart. The most amazing thing about the Nightmares is the agility they posses for their size. Whether it is a spinning leg lariat, a slingshot leg drop into the ring from the outside apron or a big splash off the top rope, their opponents are usually caught off guard by their unlikely skills.
The Nightmares have had several managers/handlers in the past including R.L. Jackson and Tiki. However, neither could effectively control and focus the Nightmares quite like their current handler, Voodoo Princess Sheeta. If the Nightmares have any weakness, it would be that they don’t seem to grasp the concept of wins and losses and they just want to hurt people. However, under Sheeta’s guidance, the Nightmares have been undefeated in the National Wrestling Superstars (NWS) promotion for the last several years. Plus, they have some tag team tournament experience as Maifu (the taller of the pair) & Saifu w/ Voodoo Princess Sheeta won the 2010 Captain Lou Albano Memorial J-Cup Tag Team Tournament sponsored by NWS in February 2010. Certainly, if the Nightmares were around a generation ago, one could imagine them right along-side Captain Lou w/ WWWF Tag Team Gold as Albano was famous for managing uncontrollable tag teams to championships like the Wild Samoans, the Moondogs, the Mongols and the Headshrinkers.
Of the teams announced in the TWA Tag Team Title Tournament so far, the Nightmares are far and away the biggest team and if any of the other teams have a hope of defeating them, them will have to avoid being caught in the grasp of the Nightmares long enough to get them tired, use their size against them and get them off their feet.
One thing is for sure; whoever meets these two mastodons on April 6th is in for one monumental challenge!

He will form a team with Shockwave the Robot as they go for TWA Tag Team gold. We will announce just who this competitor is in a few days.
