The Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) & “Wiseguy” Jimmy Cicero BODYSLAM
AUTISM took place this past Sunday afternoon January 31st at the FLYERS
SKATE ZONE in Voorhees, New Jersey. The event saw a crowd of 450 fans come out for an afternoon of great action while also supporting Autism Awareness and Bodyslam Autism.
Here are the results:
1. Matt & Bryan Logan defeated “The Platinum Poppa” Rob Eckos & Billy
2. Ryu Lee defeated White Lotus
– A representative from Autism Speaks spoke about Autism Awareness and then introduced and thanked “Wiseguy” Jimmy Cicero. Cicero thanked the TWA and the fans for their support of his mission to BODYSLAM AUTISM.
After a special performance by South Jersey recording artist from television’s highest rated singing competition, Shannon Livewell, the segment was cut off by “The Midnight Idol” Nicky Benz, “The Ugandan Giant” KAMALA and Kim Chee as they stormed ringside. Benz verbally assaulted Cicero and then started to poke Cicero in the chest. When Cicero retaliated, Kamala and Kim Chee entered the fray. Cicero had his
ribs injured after Benz and Kim Chee held Cicero in the corner, allowing Kamala to splash him twice. Kamala then started to scale the ropes for a splash off the top but was cut off by referees and security. Cicero had to be assisted from the ring.
3. Jimmy Jannetty defeated Don E. Allen
4. Next was a karate demonstration with Sensei Paul Lopresti from the Lopresti Mixed Martial Arts & Family Karate Centers in South Jersey. Lopresti had several students from the Youth Leadership Program perform for the crowd. The demonstration was interrupted by “Living Legend” Larry Winter w/ Cujo as Winters has a standing open challenge and had no one take him up on it this afternoon. Winters entered the ring and started to question Lopresti’s skills before he attacked him. However, it was only seconds before Lopresti gained the upper hand and had Winters hooked in a submission. Before Winters could tap out Cujo made the save and the duo then started to double team Lopresti before “Hitman” Michael Bruno, a personal friend of Lopresti’s, made the save and challenged the two to a tag team match on the next TWA event.
5. The World’s Only Wrestling, Breakdancing Robot, SHOCKWAVE the ROBOT
defeated the “Angry Pizza Man” Johnny Calzone
6. “The Red, White & Blue Express” The Blue Meanie & Kid America w/
Mini-America defeated Mr. Ooh La La & Robere’ Shields w/ Col. E.S.
Easton & Johnny Maxx
7. Breaker Morant defeated Tyler Steel
8. TRIPLE THREAT MATCH for the TRI-STATE WRESTLING ALLIANCE (TWA)
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP- “Mr. Wrestling” Steve Corino w/ Rob Dimension
defeated the defending champion “The Beast” Glen Osbourne and “Hitman”
Tony Stetson when Corino pinned Osbourne to win the title. This title win marks Steve Corino’s 62nd wrestling championship that he has won over the course of his career.
9. In the MAIN EVENT, “Wiseguy” Jimmy Cicero, sporting taped ribs from the attack earlier in the show, defeated “Ugandan Giant” KAMALA w/ “The Midnight Idol” Nicky Benz & Kim Chee. While the referee was distracted with Kim Chee, Benz entered the ring w/ brass knuckles and took swing at Cicero. Cicero ducked the punch which landed on Kamala’s jaw, which Cicero capitalized on for the three count. After the match Benz berated KAMALA for losing and then smacked the “Ugandan Giant.” KAMALA’s eyes
lit up as he chopped Benz square in the head who fell into Cicero’s arms and was BODYSLAMMED! Following Benz’s exit from the ring, Cicero befriended Kamala with Kim Chee’s help and Cicero presented both w/ BODYSLAM AUTISM T-Shirts. All three proudly displayed the shirts and raised each other’s hands in victory.
