National Wrestling Superstars
Hits New Jersey (Edison) And
Pennsylvania (Tower City) This Weekend
April 17-18 With Two Shows Headlined By
WWE & ECW Alumni Balls Mahoney & Snitsky
National Wrestling Superstars presents a pair of mega shows this weekend April 17th-18th in central Jersey and central Pennsylvania.
Friday night April 17th, NWS returns to Edison, NJ’s Herbert Hoover Middle School, 174 Jackson Avenue (just off Amboy Avenue, minutes from the Parkway, Turnpike, and Routes 1 and 287) with a 7:45pm bell time.
Fans will be on the edge of their seats (but are warned not to stray from their seats) for the main event, which will pit Jersey native and ECW original (and there is truly no one like him) John “Balls” Mahoney against the recent star of WWE RAW TV, the snarling, demented Snitsky, in a “Loser Gets Put Through A Door Match”. NWS isn’t saying what kind of door, or where it will be, so be prepared for anything to happen.
Also in the category of “anything goes”, there will be a no-holds-barred Bunkhouse Brawl between NWS Jersey Shore Champion “Myke” G.Q.” Quest and his rival of late, the evil Indian warrior Draven, and Edison will also see the NWS debut of the massive tag-team known only as The Nigerian Nightmares. Also, Chikara Wrestling standout Fright-Mare will challenge another NWS mainstay in Nicky Oceans, and popular area favorites Jack Spade & Nate Mustang will team together to battle J.D. Smoothie & Soul Assassin #1. All this makes for a night you don’t want to miss, and with tickets at the bargain-basement price of only $18 for adults and $16 for kids and seniors, no one in the family has to miss it.
Saturday night April 18th, NWS makes its annual trek to Tower City, PA and the Williams Valley High School, 10330 Route 209, for a 7:35pm bell time.
Along with an encore appearances by Balls Mahoney & Snitsky, another former WWE (and WCW) TV star will be part of the action in Tower City, as “America’s Hero” The Patriot faces perhaps his greatest challenge in a long time against the wild man from Borneo, King Nagumbo.
And it wouldn’t be a wrestling show in Tower City without an appearance from everybody’s local high-flying favorites Aaron Arbo & Unbreakable Andy as they team up to battle a pair of Northeast wrestling veterans in Nicky Oceans & Devon Moore. All four of these superstars will also be part of prestigious 2009 Jersey J-Cup tournament in central New Jersey in May. Plus the fans will witness the area debut of Mexico’s Manuel Manny Moore and Justice Hall. Tickets for this annual spectacular are only $18 for reserved ringside seats and $15 for bleacher seats.
Tickets are available by calling the NWS box office at (732) 888-1704
All major credit cards are accepted, and group rates are available for groups of ten or more. Remaining seats, if any, will go on sale at the door one hour before bell time.

IWF 12th Annual Reckless Abandon Weekend Anniversary Events:
I Quit Match & Ladder Match April 25-26 @ West Paterson, NJ
(WEST PATERSON, NJ)- Less talking…more wrestling! Feel the energy of live Independent Wrestling Federation action at the 12th Annual Reckless Abandon Anniversary Weekend live events Saturday, April 25, 7:30 pm; and Sunday, April 26, 4 pm; at IWF Centre, West Paterson, NJ. Here is a complete preview of the upcoming extravaganzas.
Day one April 25th is the 380th IWF event and features a Triple Main Event. IWF Heavyweight Champion Hi-Definition Chris Steeler with Commissioner Rich Ross defends against former champion Kevin Knight in an “I Quit” Match. At February Fury, Steeler captured the title from Knight to become the first Grand Slam Winner in IWF History, having held all four championships. Knight regained top contender status with a win in “The Ross Rumble” at March Madness, but paid the price when The Ross Family beat him down after the victory as seen on Eruption. On April 25th, the first man to make his opponent say “I Quit” wins.
In an IWF American Title Ladder Match, challenger Dark Dragon Kareem West looks to end the reign of terror ruled by current champion and 2008 Tournament of Champions winner Damian Adams with Commissioner Rich Ross. On April 25th, the first man to climb the ladder and claim the belt over the ring wins. Can West step up to the final rung and take the American Title away from the grasp of Adams and Boss Ross?
One-half of the IWF Tag Team Champions, the 340-pound mastodon Franciz of The Ross Family, battles Stellar Travis Blake in a battle of former partners. Last year, they were tag team champions and captured the 2008 Commissioner’s Cup crown. After being cut loose by the rouge group several months ago, Blake looks at this opportunity to get even with his former family mate and prove he is better on his own.
Mad Dawg Jenkins looks to take a bite out of Dangerous Dan McGuire, one-half of the Tag Team Champions and newest member of The Ross Family. McGuire was responsible for eliminating Jenkins from “The Ross Rumble” last month and halting his championship dreams. Now, The Dangerous One must enter the Dawg Pound and face Jenkins one-on-one.
Fun-loving Biggie Biggs wages war with nemesis German Menace Kraig Stagg. Biggs exported Stagg out of “The Ross Rumble” last month. At Reckless Abandon, these behemoths battle nose-to-nose as Biggs looks to defend the honor of the USA.
IWF Wrestling School rookie Bright Lights Jarrett Foster, who made an impressive showing in “The Ross Rumble” and took the American Champion to the limit last month, tangles with Entrepreneur Evan Schwartz. Schwartz, jealous of Jarrett’s early success, now looks to dim the lights of the newcomer.
In an Intergender Tag Team Match April 25th, Chachi teams with IWF Junior Heavyweight Champion Jennifer to face rivals Street King Tony Torres and former Junior Champion Jana. There will be special raffles and door prizes as IWF celebrates its 12th annual anniversary events and our 380th live event.
Day two Sunday, April 26th also features a blockbuster Triple Main Event. IWF Tag Team Champions Franciz and Dangerous Dan McGuire of The Ross Family defend against Juicy Justin Corino and Stellar Travis Blake. Since their first encounter at March Madness ended in controversy, the championship committee has ordered this rematch as a Best 2-out-of-3-falls match.
In a title match, Hi-Definition Chris Steeler of The Ross Family takes on Dark Dragon Kareem West. Will Steeler survive the “I Quit” Match from the night before and enter as Heavyweight Champion, or will West be defending his newly won American Championship?
In another title bout, Kevin Knight battles Damian Adams of The Ross Family. Will Knight be the new Heavyweight Champion, or will Adams be American Champion?
The IWF Junior Heavyweight Title will be defended in a Triple Threat Elimination Match as champion Jennifer defends against Bright Lights Jarrett Foster and former Junior Champion International Nick Sabre. Sabre, back from college after being enrolled in the study-abroad program, is upset his title legacy has been tarnished by a woman.
In a tag team confrontation, Biggie Biggs and Mad Dawg Jenkins of Bigg Nutz look to settle the score once-and-for-all against German Menace Kraig Stagg and Entrepreneur Evan Schwartz of Foreign Affairs.
In singles action, IWF Wrestling School rookie Frankie Amantea meets former Heavyweight Champion Street King Tony Torres. There will be special raffles and door prizes as IWF celebrates its 12th annual anniversary events. For information or advance ticket purchases, visit www.WrestlingIWF.com.
