Upcoming Shows This Weekend
This Saturday night May 21st, NWS returns (after a long absence) to the South Brunswick, NJ High School Gym (750 Ridge Road in Monmouth Junction, minutes from U.S. Route 1) with a 7:35pm bell time.
A whole host of WWE TV legends including former WWE tag-team champion and WrestleMania legend Nikolai Volkoff, former WWE “Master Of The Stinkface” the huge Samoan star Rikishi, former WWE “Spirit Squad” member Kenny Dykstra, and recent WWE Hall Of Fame inductee “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, will headline a pro wrestling spectacular this coming Saturday night, all courtesy of the northeast’s most popular wrestling promotion National Pro Wrestling Superstars, who will be returning to the South Brunswick area after too long of an absence.
Other former TV stars joining the fray include the hulking former WWE monster Snitsky, former ECW star and tag-team champion “Dastardly” Danny Doring, and the WWE’s former ultimate comic The World Famous TV Wrestling Clown.
The fans will also be thrilled by a whole host of regional and local pro mat stars. One such local star is none other than South Brunswick High School graduate, now a rising star on the northeast circuit, Randie “The Jersey Kidd” Christie. After thrilling audiences for months now, Randie will have an opportunity to win his first pro wrestling championship in front of his home town crowd, as he will compete in a Four-Way Match for the vacant NWS Jersey Shore Title, against veteran stars “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, Jumping Joey Janela, and current NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral.
The NWS Tag-Team Titles will also be on the line as champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) will face the challenge of arch rivals and number-one contenders “Too Hot” Steve Scott & Nick Talent. NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans will also be in action in South Brunswick, along with the 400+ pound “Nigerian Nightmare” La-Fu, international star Danny Inferno, “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, Smith James, and more.

Results From Last Weekend
Another Saturday night and another better-than-anticipated crowd at the Kenilworth,NJ Veterans Center as National Pro Wrestling Superstars continued their string of successful events during the month of May, 2011.
Before the show started, ring announcer Dapper Johnny Falco announced to the fans that Tommy Dreamer was pulled from the show by TNA, but they did send another star to the show which would be revealed later on in the evening.
The opening contest saw “Mister Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie defeat the rookie upstart “Retro Rocker” Ricky Roxx after a punishing series of chops by the Delaware Loudmouth.
As Dapper Johnny Falco was about to introduce the next match, Danny Inferno, Nick Gregory, J.D. Smoothie. and Ryan Angus came to the ring to talk about how they were taking over and no-one would be spared tonight. Inferno talked about how TNA supposedly pulled Tommy Dreamer from the show but in reality, he was too chicken to face him. Angus told everyone he was tired of being treated as a joke and had a surprise for his opponent and Nick Gregory talked about how he was going to defeat former WWE star The Honky-Tonk Man and send him back with his b***h Eric Simms. They then laughed at the fans and left.
The next match was a bout signed at the NWS’ last Union show and saw Cannonball take on Snake-Eyez with special guest referee “Hillbilly”Justin Blackwell. The ref tried calling it down the middle but Cannonball didn’t agree with him on his “slow count” and got into a shoving altercation. After pushing Blackwell three times, the big Hillbilly pushed back and Snake-Eyez roll him up for a real quick 1-2-3.
Match #3 saw Union County native Ryan Angus take on Neeko, the Monkey Man from Oz. Neeko ran all around the ring and had Angus confused and annoyed, which lead to Angus beating the Monkey (someone said “call the ASPCA”) for the win.
Match #4 saw the fans dancing and singing as the Greatest Former WWE Intercontinental Champion of All Time, The Honky Tonk Man made his way to the ring to take on Mister Nick Gregory, who was accompanied to ringside by Danny Inferno. After the singing and dancing, the match got started but as soon as THe Honky Tonk Man went on the offensive, Mister Gregory ran out of the ring. After the fourth time, he went to the stage and told NWS management “I want my own song to dance to”, so the NWS sound man played what he thought was appropriate… the Chicken Dance… much to the delight of the fans. After getting back in the ring, the battle continued until Honky Tonk Man hit the Shake, Rattle and Roll for the win.
As NWS referees and security were helping Nick Gregory (oops, Mister Gregory) back to the locker room, Danny Inferno called out his friends from the locker room who surrounded the former Inter-Continental champion. Just like it looked as the beatdown was about to begin, former ECW/WWE and current TNA/Impact star Brother Devon (Dudley) made his way to the ring for the save. He said he was watching from the back and didn’t like what Inferno had done and said their was only one way to settle it… with a Tables Match. Commissioner Gino Moore asked the fans and it was signed for the main event.
After a 20 minute intermission, fans saw the first ever Kenilworth Lumberjack Match between “Tuff” Tony Scorace and Steve “The Gipper” Gipke. As the Lumberjacks surrounded the ring, both Scorace and Gipke were eye-balling each other as Referee Sgt. Jimmy Storm watched on making sure that contact was not made until the bell rang. Once the lumberjacks were in place, the battle began and both showed sheer determination in trying to win the bout. Each time they were thrown out of the ring, the wrestlers surrounding the outside threw the wrestler back. After nearly 12 minutes, Gipke was thrown towards Smoothie and Ryan Angus who were two of the lumberjacks. When they threw him in, they followed and beat down on both Scoreace and Gipke as the other lumberjacks battled outside the ring. After the referee lost control, security separated the wrestlers on the outside and escorted them back to the locker room. Smoothie and Angus were still in the ring as NWS Commissioner Gino Moore came out and asked Scorace and Gipke if they could put their difference aside for one night as he’d like to see a match between them and Angus/Smoothie the next time they came to Union County. Before they gave an answer, they dropkicked Smoothie and Angus out of the ring, giving the fans the answer they were cheering for.
The next bout was a six-person tag match pitting The Jersey Kidd and the Jersey Shore Jocks against “Too Hot” Steve Scott, Nick Talent and NWS Cruiserweight champion Spyral. Their seemed to be tension on the team of the Jocks and Jersey Kidd as while each were trying to make a good showing, the Jocks told him “this is our home town and we will handle things”. Talent, Scott and Spyral had other ideas as the two teams battled for nearly 15 minutes in and out of the ring. After the 12 minute mark, The Jersey Kidd went to pin Steve Scott but Mike Dennis pulled him off saying “I told you this is our home town” and slammed the Kidd and left the ring, allowing Spyral to his his splash finisher on him.
The main event saw TNA/Impact star Brother Devon (Dudley) take on Danny Inferno in a Tables Match. Inferno, who normally gives one of the better performances on the card, was sick much of the evening but insisted on going to battle Brother Devon, which may not have been the best thing to do as Devon not only battled Inferno, but used a chair square across his head and finally/mercifully put Inferno through the table for the win, sending the fans home happy.

Other Upcoming Shows
Saturday night June 4th, NWS returns to Stirling, NJ’s Long Hill Township Community Center (264 Warren Avenue, just off Valley Road, minutes from I-78) with a 7:35pm bell time.
Two former WWE TV legends and tag-team champions will top the bill for NWS’ long-awaited return to Stirling. First off it will be the Russian giant (who’s now all-American) Nikolai Volkoff, and from the legendary Hart Foundation, it will be the maniacal Jim “The Anvil” Niedhart.
The fans will also be treated to Stirling’s first ever Lumberjack Match, with the NWS Heavyweight Title on the line, as “Cannonball” Jeff Guerrero gets another shot at the champion “Rampage” Steve Rogers. This time, to keep the wrestlers in the ring, and prevent the outside interference that robbed Cannonball of a victory last time in Stirling, the ring will be surrounded by wrestlers.
Also on the heels of the last Stirling show, there will be a “Falls Count Anywhere” inter-gender tag-team match, as NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans teams up with the dangerous lady warrior Niya to face NWS Tag-Team Champion and Jersey Shore Jocks member Mike Dennis and the equally dangerous Jamilia Craft. This is a rare spectacle you do not want to miss.
There will also be appearances by NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto, and much more!
Tickets are only $20, and all seats are ringside.
