TWA HOMECOMIING on Sat June 5th in PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA & TWA TAG-TEAM TITLE TOURNAMENT on Sun June 6TH in VOORHEES, NJ
WWF/E LEGENDS & 3-TIME WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AX & SMASH, DEMOLITION COME TO THE TWA June 5th in Plymouth Meeting, PA and June 6th in Voorhees, NJ…
While first deemed as “Road Warrior Rip-offs” when they debuted in the WWF in 1987, Ax & Smash, Demolition went on to win 3 WWF Tag Teams Titles, but more importantly they won the respect of the wrestling world and fans as one of the most legendary tandems of the 1980’s. While both performed under different names in the past and achieved great success, it was their stint as Ax & Smash that earned them arguably their greatest fame and notoriety. Their 1st of 3 WWF Title Reigns (defeating Strike Force of Rick Martel and Tito Santana) lasted a record 16 months. Their 2nd title win was over The Brain Busters (Tully Blanchard & Arn Anderson) and their 3rd was over Andre the Giant & Haku. Other classic battles included wars against the Powers of Pain (the Barbarian and the Warlord), the Legion of Doom/the Road Warriors (Hawk & Animal) and six-mans with partner Crush vs. the Legion of Doom/the Road Warriors & the Ultimate Warrior.
Demolition will make their Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) debuts in the Philly-NJ area on June 5th and June 6th.
On Saturday, June 5th at the Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Meeting, PA, Ax & Smash will meet one of the biggest and most dangerous tag-teams in pro wrestling today, the 848 lbs. Nigerian Nightmares, Maifu & Saifu, with their handler the Voodoo Princess Sheeta! The Nightmares have been on a tear in the Northeast indie scene as they are undefeated and have left a trail of beaten bodies and broken bones in the wake of their path. The Nightmares, who are also the 2010 Captain Lou Albano Tag Team Memorial J-Cup Champions (NWS), are made in the mold of savage competitors of the past such as Kamala, the Wild Samoans and the Headhunters; they live to hurt their opponents. Ax & Smash will have their hands full and will have to rely on their experience and smarts to keep the Nightmares at bay let alone score a win over these 2 behemoths!
On Sunday, June 6th at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, Demolition will take on one of the hottest teams out of the Mid-South, “Reckage & Romance” Traditional Championship Wrestling (TCW) Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jett and making his TWA return, VH-1 Reality TV Star “Mr. 5.5” Matt Riviera. June 6th will also feature an 8-team Tag Team Tournament for the TWA Titles, but since Demolition will not be a part of the regular TWA roster, TWA Commissioner Joel Goodhart decided to book the legendary duo in this special Non-Tag Team Tournament Bonus Match.
Jeff Jett, a 15-year veteran of the ring, recently won the TCW Heavyweight Championship from Tim Storm on April 10th. He holds wins over former NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Dan Severn, NWA Legend & 1/2 of the Midnight Express, Bobby Eaton, and many others.
Matt Riviera is a 6-year veteran of the ring, and holds wins over Bobby Eaton, Mike Jackson, Ted Allen, and is a multi-time champion for Pro Wrestling Alliance (PWA), Arkansas Wrestling Entertainment (AWE), TCW, and many other indie promotions. Riviera was on VH1’s Megan Wants a Millionaire and is undefeated in TWA. Riviera is reported to be worth $5.5 M, as his ring moniker suggests.
Collectively, Jett & Riviera are former TCW Tag Team Champions.
Matt Riviera has been talking trash about Ax & Smash of late on the PWI Weekly Podcast at the urging of Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) Magazine Contributing Writer & PWI Weekly Host Brady Hicks. Hicks has been debating the legendary status of Ax & Smash as he feels that they were overrated, while his co-hosts DJ and Kevin McElvaney, also a PWI Magazine Contributing Writer, have stated the opposite view that Ax & Smash carved out their own legacy and have proved that they deserve their status as one of the legendary teams of the 80’s. As the debate evolved, Riviera, who is close personal friends with Hicks, asked the PWI Weekly host and writer to be in the corner of his team. Hicks accepted, which has raised curiosity as to exactly what the Riviera camp has planned.

Be there June 5th and 6th to celebrate one of the greatest teams of the WWF glory years and re-live the memories all over again with Ax & Smash, Demolition!!!

Juggalo Championship Wrestling
Minneapolis, May 26th, 2010
Whattap Ninja’s and Wrestling Fans? Welcome to the Referee-Cap for Juggalo Championship Wrestling! Minneapolis has been a hotbed for pro wrestling dating back generations and this wrestling city has delivered some of the best matches and biggest stars the world of wrestling has ever seen. This historical wrestling town continues to develop and deliver some of the best wrestlers in the country, and we got a taste of the diverse talent coming out of the city of lakes during this stop on the Happy Daze tour as many of the best and brightest competitors from this great state stepped up to challenge the stars of JCW.
JCW Ring Announcer Legs Diamond introduced a local competitor named Corporal Julio who had a challenge to issue, stating that he was the only real Corporal in Pro Wrestling, and demanding that former JCW champion Corporal Robinson get his “bitch ass” into the ring immediately. Robinson is not high on the list of people you want mad at you, and it’s a very rare occasion that someone would speak so disrespectfully of him publicly. “I Get Mad” is his aptly titled ring entrance music, and the crowd came alive when it blared through the massive PA system. Led to the ring by his 5-year-old prodigy and pro wrestling manager Violent JJ who is also handling Robinson’s bookings, business, and legal affairs while plotting a course back to the top of JCW. Robinson and JJ received a hero’s welcome and they gave daps, pounds, and props to all of their fans at ringside as they circled the ring, ultimately posing on opposite corners of the ring to soak in the ovation. Robinson was an uncaged animal here. His recent title loss, and the remarks made by Julio only made a bad situation worse as Corporal Robinson opened a can of whip ass and simply destroyed his opponent in short order hitting a series of power moves before wrapping it up with his signature Super kick into the Boot Camp for the 1,2,3.
Post Match Violent JJ entered the ring again, this time to teach young Corporal Julio a lesson in respect and JJ unleashed a series of right hands on this helpless jabroni demonstrating what’s in store for anyone who crosses this dynamic duo.
Next up local stand out and Iranian immigrant Aria Davari locked horns with the Weedman! Davari entered the ring in traditional garb, with a rolled up prayer rug. The Weedman made his entrance rocking his own JCW T-shirt and with a rolled up blunt overflowing with his traditional herbs. With the USA! Chants in full effect these two had an amazing fast paced match, which saw one of JCW’s most popular square off against Minnesota’s most hated. This match was off the hook and back and forth fast paced action as Davari seemed offended by the lit blunt that was in the ring for the match, and Weedman seemed inspired by it. Weedman had things going his way following a pre-match smoke bomb and a series of dropkicks and 420 inspired aerial tactics once the bout was underway, but then Davari lured Weedman into the corner where his prayer rug was set up, then hopped off the apron and pulled the rug out from under the feet of the Weedman dragging him out of the ring and beating on him, rolling him back into the ring but ultimately missing his flying carpet finisher off the top rope when Weedman used his lit blunt to recover from the damage inflicted and quickly roll out of the way of the flying Persian.. Weedman took this opportunity to put on the traditional garb of Davari and take his sacred rug and hit him with his own “flying carpet” finisher for a near fall! Weedman then with THC soaring through his bloodstream ascended the ropes, raised his blunt high, and hit his “packing the bowl” finisher for the victory!
It was time for the Thomaselli Brothers to defend their JCW tag team titles against frequent Chikara competitors and indie standouts the North Star Express (Darren Corbin and Ryan Cruz), as the Detroit Lake duo received a hero’s welcome as they seemed poised to shut the ever flapping lips of the Thomaseli brothers and give the champions a run for their money. North Star Express got things off to a hot start hitting an array of stunning highflying moves, including a double basement dropkick through the ropes. The Thomaselli’s got their competition back in the ring and tried to take control. They were hit with flying burritos and a springboard dropkick sent Pauly out of the ring… Ryan Cruz went for the “Cruz Control”. They went for cruise control but Pauly pulled Vito out just in time and the Thomaselli’s came back with a double Van Terminator off the rop rope for a hard fought victory over some tough competition.
Main Event Time as a Madman is scheduled to defend his title against a Psychopath in a No DQ match! But not just any Psychopath, it’s Minnesota standout Horace the Psychopath! Horace ran from the locker room and quickly attacked Mad Man Pondo much to the delight of the rabid crowd in attendance! Horace quickly got the upper hand and hit an amazing senton splash from the top rope onto the Abs of Steel of Madman Pondo and when fans attempted to had Horace some of Pondo’s weapons, he foolishly decided to try another splash out of the corner, but Pondo had the move scouted and he got out of the way. Pondo took control and stunned Horace with a Death Valley Driver, followed by a low blow with a Golf Club! Pondo then risked a count out by returning to the dressing room to retrieve a cinderblock and a sledgehammer, and then smashed the cinderblock on the scrotal region of Horace the Psychopath, dashing his championship dreams. One brutal stop sign shot later, it was all over, and Pondo retained the belt today, but is on a collision course with Corporal Robinson for the JCW heavyweight Championship and it’s gonna be Pondo vs Robinson 2 May 31st, Denver Colorado.
See you next time!
