NWS Internet News Update For Week Of 05/02
Former WWE Star Carlito Makes NWS Debut, Huge Double-Shot This Weekend With Carlito And Former WWE/Current TNA Star Kurt Angle, And More.
Hello NWS fans! This is your weekly update on what’s happened, what is happening now, and what is going to happen soon in the nation’s leading family-friendly pro wrestling promotion, National Wrestling Superstars.
Upcoming Shows This Weekend
This Friday night May 6th, NWS returns to another popular venue in central Jersey, the Manville, NJ V.F.W. Hall (600 Washington Avenue, just off Main Street, minutes from Routes 28 and 287) with a 7:45pm bell time.
Former WWE champion, current TNA superstar, 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, and all-around pro wrestling mega-star Kurt Angle will headline a huge night of wrestling action, along with the cool-talking apple-eating recent WWE TV star Carlito and legendary Hart Family member Smith Hart.
Kurt Angle, who won the Gold Medal in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, held every championship title during his 8-year tenure with WWE, and has accomplished the same feat in TNA over the past five years. He is heralded around the world as one of the greatest mat wrestlers ever. This is indeed one of those proverbial once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, that may never come again, to meet a true wrestling legend.
Carlito, who had a stellar career of his own in WWE for six years, is a member of one of the most famous wrestling families in the world, being the son of Latin wrestling great Carlos Colon. He became famous for talking about things and people being “cool” (or not), and for eating and spitting apples in the faces of his enemies. This is also Carlito’s first appearance for NWS in central Jersey.
Smith Hart is the oldest brother of former WWE greats Bret “Hit-Man” Hart and the late Owen Hart. He spent most of his career wrestling for his father Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling in Calgary, but made an appearance in the WWE at Wrestlemania 26 in 2010 to help his brother Bret defeat Vince McMahon in a No Holds Barred Match.
In addition to the past and present legends, Manville will also showcase the future legends of pro wrestling, in the form of a whole host regional and local pro mat stars. In the latest round of a feud between two high-fliers, NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral will defend his title against Chikara Wrestling star and number-one challenger Frightmare. NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) will also defend their titles, against the duo of “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie & “High Definition” Chris Steeler.
And in a match eagerly anticipated by the Manville fans, local favorite Rich “Ice Pick” Lowinski and Judas Young will try and settle their differences once again, this time in a Lumberjack Match, where wrestlers will surround the ring and make sure the action stays in the ring.
There will also be appearances by NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, international star Danny Inferno, Team Thunder Horse (Indian Chief Draven & “The Warrior” Jack Spade), manager Romulus The Great, and much more.
Tickets are only $20 for adults and $18 for kids and seniors.
Saturday night May 7th, NWS makes its annual appearance at North Middetown, NJ’s St. Catherine’s Church Gym (5 Shore Acres Avenue, just off Route 36 in the North Middletown section of Middletown, NJ), with a 7:35pm bell time.
And if you couldn’t make it to Manville the night before (or even if you could, and just want to see them again), former WWE legends Carlito and Kurt Angle, as well as Hart family member Smith Hart, will treat the Bayshore area fans by making just one more appearance for NWS.
In addition to the past and present legends, North Middletown will also showcase the future legends of pro wrestling, in the form of a whole host regional and local pro mat stars. NWS Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers will defend his title against tough guy “Outlaw” Shane O’Brien, NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral will defend his title against popular northeast star Johnny Knockout, and NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) will defend their titles against Jumping Joey Janela & his “Delaware loudmouth” partner “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie.
In addition, another Bayshore resident, former NWS Heavyweight Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, has declared that NWS isn’t big enough for him and fellow big man and former ECW brawler The Equalizer, and has challenged him to a “Loser-Leaves-Town” Hardcore Match.
All this plus appearances by the undefeated 900-pound behemoths The Nigerian Nightmares, Michael Reigns, Shock, Richard Michaels, Chill Will, ladies wrestling star Niya, and much more.
Tickets are only $20 for ringside seats and $18 for bleacher seats.

Results From Last Weekend
National Pro Wrestling Superstars returned from its Easter break with a return to its popular Jersey Shore venue, the Brick, NJ Elks Lodge, on Saturday night April 30th. And while other promotions’ shows that night could not even draw 50 fans, NWS continued its tradition of huge draws at Brick with a near-capacity crowd piling into the hall, and showing their energy and enthusiasm all night.
In the opening contest, the first of four grudge matches (from the last Ocean County show), NWS Tag-Team Champion and Jersey Shore Jocks member Mike Dennis defeated Bobby Youngblood. Despite an early attack by Bobby, Mike fought back and prevailed, fighting out of a tombstone piledriver attempt by Bobby and hitting an RKO for the victory.
NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral retained his title against challenger Manel Manny Moore. Moore gave it his all, but was out-wrestled by Spyral from the start. In the end, Manny missed a charge into the corner, and Spyral put him down with a neckbreaker and a 450 splash for the three-count.
In the second grudge match of the night, Jersey Shore madman Slayer (with manager Father Ozzy) defeated Jumping Joey Janela. The two veteran high fliers fought all over the ring, and outside it as well. Towards the end, Janela appeared to have Slayer weakened, when Father Ozzy fed Slayer his favorite snack of a dog biscuit, and that helped Slayer power up. Slayer went on the offensive against Janela, and when he had him down in the corner, slipped a tight black mask over his heard. The blinded and disoriented Janela swung in every direction, and grabbed ahold of referee Jimmy Storm, thinking it was Slayer. Meanwhile the real Slayer hit Janela with a flying cross-body and pinned him for the victory.
Before the next match, former NWS Heavyweight Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc came out to ringside with his cohorts Danny Inferno and “Hockey Goon” Rocco Dorsey. Corey said that he was not wrestling on the show tonight (which drew cheers from the crowd) but would watch the backs of his friends. Danny took the mic and hurled racial insults at his opponent for the night, former WWE star Carlito. Rocco promised he would defeat his opponent “Bounty Hunter” Johnny Ringo tonight in their Lumberjack Match, saying that the Lumberjack Match was invented in his home town of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Security eventually ejected the three from the ring and back to the locker room.
In the third grudge match of the night, NWS Tag-Team Champion and Jersey Shore Jocks member Chris D’Andrea defeated A.C. Kewl. A.C. also tried the early attack on Chris, but Chris also fought back, and finished off Kewl with a standing moonsault and a superkick for the 1-2-3.
In a wild six-man tag-team match, former ECW brawler The Equalizer & “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie & “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans (with Rocco Dorsey in their corner) vs. “Atomic Dog” Ali & The Illegal Outer Space Alien & “Ice-Fire” Steve Zapf (with manager “Big 80’s” Donnie V) was thrown out as a double-disqualification. The match was a wild affair inside and outside the ring. Towards the end, Atomic Dog and Equalizer took their fight to the outside, leaving Alien and Zapf facing down Smoothie and Oceans. But then Alien took down his own partner Zapf and removed his mask, revealing himself to be Corey Havoc all along. While Havoc embraced Smoothie and Oceans in triumph, Atomic Dog charged back into the ring and got in Havoc’s face, only to be gang-attacked by Oceans and Smoothie and Dorsey, with Danny Inferno joining in the melee. The referee immediately called for the bell and threw out the match. “Bounty Hunter” Johnny Ringo tried to come to the aid of Atomic Dog and Zapf, but was quickly overwhelmed by their attackers. Then out from the back ran former WWE star Carlito himself, and Havoc and his cohorts scattered from the ring. Carlito took the mic and promised he would show Inferno just how dirty he could be in their match later on. He offered to start their fight right then and there, and it looked as if Inferno might accept, but then thought better and decided to wait.
In the final grudge match of the night, “Bounty Hunter” Johnny Ringo defeated “The Hockey Goon” Rocco Dorsey in their Lumberjack Match, with Father Ozzy as the special referee. Surrounding the ring as Lumberjacks were The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea), Slayer, “Atomic Dog” Ali, Bobby Youngblood, A.C. Kewl, Joey Janela, The Equalizer, J.D. Smoothie, and Nicky Oceans. The match was a wild brawl, with the Lumberjacks definitely making a difference as they attacked their enemies on the outside while helping their friend (depending on which wrestler fell near which Lumberjack). After Dorsey’s friend Lumberjacks revived him with water on the outside, he started to dominate Ringo, and put him down with a legdrop and a flying headbutt. But Father Ozzy had neglected to study his numbers once again, and had difficulty remembering how to count to three, robbing Dorsey of a pinfall. Dorsey attacked Ozzy with a kick to the gut and threw him outside to his friend Lumberjacks who knocked him out with a “Wet Floor” sign. Sargeant Jimmy Storm tried to come in as a replacement referee, but was also attacked by Dorsey and thrown out. Then Corey Havoc came into the ring wearing a referee shirt around his neck, and Dorsey had no objections to this referee. Havoc even let Dorsey bring a chair and “Wet Floor” sign into the ring to help finish off Ringo. But in a bizarre twist, Havoc picked up the “Wet Floor” sign and hit Dorsey with it. Ringo then hit a running spear on Dorsey and Havoc counted the 1-2-3 for Ringo. But while Ringo and Havoc were celebrating, Havoc stunned the crowd once again by hitting Ringo with a chair, with Smoothie and Oceans attacking him afterwards. Havoc promised that the next time Ringo gets in the ring, he will have to deal with him.
In a match for the number-one contender to the NWS Heavyweight Title, former champion Ray-Ray Marz (with manager “Big 80’s” Donnie V) defeated Judas Young. Judas dominated early with power moves, but Ray held on and kept the match even. Towards the end, Judas, desperate that he could not put Ray away, pulled a foreign object out of his tights, and when Ray lifted up Judas for a back suplex, hit Ray in the head with it and knocked him out, covering him for the three-count. The referee declared Judas the winner, but Donnie V jumped into the ring and told the referee about the foreign object that Judas was now hiding under his arm. The referee seized Judas’ arm to raise in victory and the foreign object fell out onto the mat. As the referee was signaling that the match was back on, Ray rolled Judas up in a schoolboy and thereferee counted 1-2-3 and proclaimed Ray the true winner.
In the Main Event, former WWE star Carlito defeated Danny Inferno. This match was a wild brawl inside and outside the ring. Danny attacked Carlito before the bell, but Carlito fought back and did his trademark move of eating an apple and spitting apple fragments into Danny’s face, to the delight of the crowd. But Danny kept pace and the two kept fighting inside and outside the ring. Eventually Carlito gained the upper hand and went for the Backstabber, but Danny knew it was coming and hit Carlito with a back-kick low blow to block it. Danny then lifted Carlito onto the turnbuckle and went for a superplex, but Carlito knocked him off and hit a flying splash on Danny. Danny kicked out of the pin attempt and hit a Michinoku Driver on Carlito, but could not hold him down for the three-count. Carlito eventually threw Danny into the corner, and on the recoil, hit the Backstabber and got the 1-2-3. As he was celebrating his victory, Nicky Oceans and J.D. Smoothie came into the ring. Smoothie took the mic and started trash-talking at Carlito. As Carlito began to look angry, Oceans crept out of the ring, leaving Smoothie without any backup, and Carlito eventually leveled Smoothie with a Backstabber, to the delight of the crowd, as the show ended.

Other Upcoming Shows
Saturday night May 14th, NWS returns to the Union County area at the Kenilworth, NJ Veterans Center (33 South 21st Street, just off The Boulevard, minutes from The Parkway) with a 7:35pm bell time.
Due to a conflict with TNA Wrestling’s house show schedule, current TNA and former ECW hardcore icon Tommy Dreamer will not be available to be part of NWS’ return to Kenilworth. But NWS has already made sure that the fans will not be let down, because due to the same scheduling quirk, another current TNA wrestler who is also a former ECW (as well as WWE) hardcore superstar will be available to replace Dreamer. This legend is one-half of one of the most famous tag-teams of all time, and has held tag-team gold just about everywhere they’ve wrestled, making his first ever NWS appearance, it’s the one and only D-Von Dudley.
But there’s more… He calls himself “The Greatest WWE Intercontinental Champion Of All Time”, he has recorded an album and considers himself one of the greatest singers of all (again, a title he made up himself), he’s former WWE TV and WrestleMania legend The Honky-Tonk Man, and he’ll also be part of the all-star pro wrestling event in Kenilworth.
And speaking of rough-and-tumble matches, two former friends and now sworn enemies, “Tough” Tony Scorace and Steve “The Gipper” Gipke have been battling each other for months now in grudge matches where nothing has been settled. NWS management hopes to end this feud (and the damages it causes) in Kenilworth that night as the two will meet once again in a Lumberjack Match where wrestlers will surround the ring to make sure the fight starts (and ends) right there.
The fans will also be treated to a six-man high-flier showdown, as Union’s own NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) team up with rising phenomenon The Jersey Kidd against arch rivals “Too Hot” Steve Scott & Nick Talent and their partner the NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral.
In addition, area stars Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero will take on the unpredictable Snake-Eyez, with the popular “Hillbilly” Justin Blackwell as guest referee, plus appearances by international star Danny Inferno, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, and much more!
Tickets are only $19 for adults and $17 for kids and seniors.
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.
This one will be off the charts, as no less than seven (no, that’s not a typo, we said seven) former WWE and ECW TV legends will be in the house.
The long list of headliners starts with recent WWE Hall Of Fame inductee, the two-by-four swinging, flag-waving patriotic “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan.
If you like tag-team wrestling, then get ready for a whole host of former tag-team champions such as former WWE “Spirit Squad” member Kenny Dykstra, former ECW star “Dastardly” Danny Doring, “The Master Of The Stinkface” Rikishi, and a tag-team legend who won his tag-team title at the very first WrestleMania, the great Nikolai Volkoff. And last but certainly not least, rounding out the list are The World Famous TV Wrestling Clown and the hulking Gene “It’s Not My Fault” Snitsky.
But that’s not all. Top NWS stars will battle in a Four-Corners Tornado Match for the vacated NWS Jersey Shore Championship, as “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, Jumping Joey Janela, current NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral, and local-turned-pro Randie “The Jersey Kidd Christie” will all vie to be the next one to hold the gold.
NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) will also put their titles on the line, plus there will be appearances by the 400+ pound “Nigerian Nightmare” La-Fu, NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, and more.
Tickets are only $25 for V.I.P reserved ringside seats and $18 for bleacher seats.
Tickets for all upcoming shows are available by calling the NWS box office at (732) 888-1704. All major charge cards are accepted, and group rates are available for groups of ten or more.
