NWS Internet News Update For Week Of May 23, 2011
Multiple TV Legends On One Show, A New Jersey Shore Champion Crowned, A Tribute To The Macho Man, 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
No shows this weekend. NWS wishes its fans a happy Memorial Day holiday weekend, and salutes the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in securing our freedom.
Results From Last Weekend
National Pro Wrestling Superstars returned to the South Brunswick, NJ High School Gym on Saturday night May 21st, making its first appearance in that area in over a decade, and was greeted by a good Saturday night crowd who turned out to see a whole multitude of former WWE and ECW legends, cheer on their favorites, boo their enemies, and overall have a great time.
Before the show, the fans got autographs and pictures with WWE Hall-of-Fame alumni “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Nikolai Volkoff, plus former WWE stars Rikishi and Snitsky.
The show opened with a ten-bell tribute to the legendary former WWE & WCW mega-star “Macho Man” Randy Savage, who had tragically passed away the day before. WWE alumni “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Nikolai Volkoff, and Rikishi, all of whom had shared the locker room with Savage during their careers, came out to ringside to join the tribute.
MATCH #1 – NWS TAG-TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea, champions) vs. Too Hot And Dangerous (“Too Hot” Steve Scott & Nick Talent, challengers)
Steve and Nick have been chasing the champions all over the tri-state area, and they gave the champions a good fight tonight, but came up short once again. After Mike Dennis speared Nick Talent, and Chris D’Andrea stopped Steve Scott’s splash attempt from the top rope with a high dropkick, The Jocks delivered double flying elbows from the top rope (in tribute to Randy Savage) and got the 1-2-3.
Winners (and still NWS Tag-Team Champions): The Jersey Shore Jocks
MATCH #2 – TV Legend Vs. Legend: Former WWE star Rikishi (with South Brunswick teacher Mr. Luca) vs. former ECW star “Dastardly” Danny Doring (with manager Gigalo Joe Jones)
Jones and Doring insulted the South Brunswick fans before Rikishi came out. Doring used his quickness to try and dominate early, which worked until he made the mistake of trying to bodyslam the huge Samoan. Doring’s overconfidence would be his undoing in the end, as he tried to sunset-flip Rikishi, only to have Rikishi hold on and crush Doring with a sit-down splash. Rikishi dragged the half-conscious Doring into the corner, and planted his patented Stinkface move on him to the delight of the crowd. The stunned and disgusted Doring staggered out of the corner, right into a chokeslam from Rikishi who got the easy 1-2-3. Joe Jones tried to sneak-attack Rikishi’s manager Mr. Luca during the celebration, but was caught and thrown into the corner, and Joe Jones also received a Stinkface, making the crowd even more delighted. Rikishi and Mr. Luca danced to Rikishi’s WWE dance music after the match.
MATCH #3 – BIG MAN BATTLE: Former WWE star and Hall-of-Famer Nikolai Volkoff vs. Smith James
Nikolai accepted the fans’ request to sing his much beloved rendition of “Cara Mia”, but Smith attacked Nikolai during the opening bars. Nikolai fought back, still able to throw massive shots after all these years, and frustrated Smith to the point where he almost left the arena, until the fans’ calling him “chicken” wounded his pride enough to come back. The two brawled further, but Nikolai’s experience won the day, as he ducked out of the way of a splash from Smith, and hit a rolling splash of his own and got the 1-2-3.
Winner: Nikolai Volkoff
MATCH #4 – TAG-TEAM MATCH: The Nigerian Nightmares (La-Fu & Ra-Fu, with South Brunswick teacher Mr. Luca) vs. Team Champion (NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans & newly-crowned NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc)
Havoc and Oceans tried to jump The Nightmares as they were finishing their pre-match war dance, but The Nightmares quickly turned things around and out-powered their opponents. La-Fu went for his patented 450-pound moonsault early, but missed, and Havoc and Oceans spent several minutes working him over, trying to keep him grounded. But La-Fu eventually made it to his feet, flattened Oceans with a Samoan Drop, and tagged in the 550-pound Ra-Fu, who cleaned house on both Oceans and Havoc. The Nightmares crushed Havoc and Oceans together in a Nigerian Sandwich, and La-Fu then climbed to the top rope and delivered a succesful (not to mention impressive) 450-pound moonsault on Havoc and got the easy 1-2-3.
Winners: The Nigerian Nightmares
MATCH #5: The World Famous Wrestling Clown (with South Brunswick teacher Mr. Botello) vs. Judas Young (with manager Gigalo Jones and Danny Inferno & Smith James & former WWE “Spirit Squad” member Kenny Dykstra)
Jones was still reeling from his Stinkface earlier, and announced that his entourage was out here to prevent further embarassment. The Clown and Botello pointed out the imbalance to Commissioner Moore, who agreed that it should be one wrestler & one manager per side, and ordered Jones’ entourage back to the locker room. The match finally began, with The Clown’s unpredictable style keeping the veteran Judas off his game. After The Clown powered out of Judas’ sleeper hold, he went on a flurry of offense, ending it with a Samoan Drop on Judas. But before he could climb to the top rope to deliver his Whoopie Cushion finisher, Jones signaled to the back, and his entourage of Inferno & Smith James & Dykstra rushed the ring and The Clown was beaten down five-on-one as the referee called for the bell and disqualified Judas.
Winner by disqualification: The World Famous Wrestling Clown.
The beatdown continued, and Security was unable to break up the attack, but out of the locker room came former WWE stars Nikolai Volkoff, Snitsky, and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, and Jones and his entourage scattered from the ring. Dykstra promised to take out Duggan in their match later, and Duggan offered to do it any time, “tough guy!”. Inferno promised he would show Snitsky the door once and for all tonight, and Snitsky said that sounded like a challenge for a “Loser Goes Through A Door” Match. Inferno immediately tried to “clarify” his remarks, but Commissioner Moore agreed that it was indeed a challenge for a “Loser Goes Through A Door Match”, and made the match for later. Snitsky was heard to tell Inferno, “You made the challenge first… it’s not my fault!”
During intermission, the fans posed for pictures in the ring with Snitsky and Duggan, and with Nikolai Volkoff and the other wrestlers all around the gym.
MATCH #6: TV Legend Vs. Legend: WWE Hall-of-Fame alumnus “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (with South Brunswick teacher Mr. Botello) vs. former WWE “Spirit Squad” member Kenny Dykstra (with manager Gigalo Joe Jones)
It was a matchup of Duggan’s power vs. Kenny’s wrestling skills, and Dykstra was able to use those skills to keep the big man at bay for a time. But Duggan’s experience won the day, and after powering out of a sleeperhold by Kenny, he smashed Kenny into the turnbuckle, then leveled him with his running tackle and got the 1-2-3. Joe Jones tried to sneak-attack Mr. Botello after the match, but Mr. Botello, with Duggan’s help, clotheslined Jones to the mat to the delight of the crowd.
Winner: “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan
MATCH #7 – FOUR-CORNERS HIGH-FLIERS TORNADO MATCH FOR THE VACANT NWS JERSEY SHORE TITLE: “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie vs. Jumping Joey Janela vs. NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral vs. Randy “The Jersey Kidd” Christie.
Christie, a South Brunswick High School alumnus, was clearly the crowd favorite here, and that made him the instant target of the other three (who were clearly *NOT* crowd favorites). But The Kidd held his own, and kept the other three at bay, and pretty soon they realized it was “every man for himself”, and the match became a furious battle inside and outside the ring. In a memorable moment, Janela ensnared The Kidd in a body scissors, while he was doing that Spyral slapped a chin lock on Janela, and at the same time Smoothie put Spyral in a reverse head lock. Towards the end, Spyral lifted Janela on his shoulders and tried to take him out with a back drop, but Smoothie stopped it by grabbing Janela in a head lock while still perched on Spyral’s shoulders. The Kidd then hit a flyling neckbreaker on Smoothie, taking all three opponents down. After an offensive flurry by The Kidd, his three veteran opponents decided they had had enough of the South Brunswick upstart, and gang attacked him and took turns stomping and punching him. But the alliance broke down just as quickly as they began to argue over who would get the pinfall. Spyral took out Janela with a back kick to the head, took out Smoothie with a Spyral Driver, and as he leveled The Kidd with a back kick it looked like Spyral was going to leave South Brunswick a double champion. But as Spyral went to the top rope to deliver his 450-Splash finisher, The Kidd jumped up on the ropes and hit Spyral with a pair of roundhouse kicks to the head, then drove him into the mat with a facebuster all the way from the top rope, and got the 1-2-3, to the screaming delight of the South Brunswick fans.
Winner (and *NEW* NWS Jersey Shore Champion): Randy “The Jersey Kidd” Christie
MATCH #8 – LOSER-GOES-THROUGH-A-DOOR MATCH: Former WWE star Gene “It’s Not My Fault” Snitsky vs. Danny Inferno
This was another big man power battle. Snisky initially asserted his size advantage over Danny, but the veteran international star Danny was not about to be taken out so easily, and battled back, eventually sending the big Snitsky to the outside with a boot to the head, then using a chair to try and take him out. Danny threw Snitsky into the ring and pulled the wooden door out from under the ring and propped it into a corner. The two men brawled, trying to toss the other into the door. Snisky bodyslammed Danny, but missed with a big boot to the head. Danny picked up Snitsky for a spinebuster, but Snitsky fought out of it and picked up Danny and spinebuster’ed him straight into the door, smashing it and winning the match.
Winner: Gene “It’s Not My Fault” Snitsky

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.
NWS has already hosted many successful shows in Stirling over the past year, and headlining their much-anticipated return are two former WWE TV legends, both of whom were members of hugely successful championship tag-teams, and will be making their first ever appearances in Stirling. One of these legends won his tag-team championship at the very first WrestleMania, he was a feared Russian giant back then, but now he’s all-American and proud of it, Nikolai Volkoff. And the other has been a multi-time WWE tag-team champion as one-half of the legendary Hart Foundation, making one of his rare NWS appearances, it’s Jim “The Anvil” Niedhart.
And speaking of firsts, Stirling’s first ever Lumberjack Match will take place that night, as NWS Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers defends the title against “Cannonball” Jeff Guerrero. These two met at the last Stirling show, but Cannonball was robbed of a victory due to outside interference. This time, the ring will be surrounded by all the other wrestlers from the locker room, to make sure that the two combatants stay in the ring, and everyone else stays out.
The Stirling fans will also be treated to an inter-gender “Falls Count Anywhere” tag-team match, as NWS Tag-Team Champion and Jersey Shore Jocks member Mike Dennis and the high-flying Jamilia Craft take on NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans and his partner, the dangerous lady warrior Niya. “Falls Count Anywhere” means that the wrestlers can (and will) battle anywhere within the building, and can get a victory by pinning their opponent any place they can.
There will also be appearances by NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, Jumping Joey Janela, “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto, “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, Team Thunder Horse (Indian Chief Draven & “The Warrior” Jack Spade), “Retro Rocker” Ricky Roxx, manager Romulus The Great, and much more!
Tickets are only $20, and all seats are ringside.
