Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) & “Wiseguy” JIMMY CICERO BODYSLAM AUTISM SHOW
Sunday, January 31, 2010

“The Midnight Idol” Nicky Benz has contacted the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) and has made good on his promise to find someone to face “Wiseguy” Jimmy Cicero at the BODYSLAM AUTISM SHOW on Sunday afternoon January 31st at the FLYERS SKATE ZONE in Voorhees, New Jersey. Benz said he could easily defeated Cicero in a rematch from their impromptu match at the Dec 5th TWA TOYS FOR TOTS SHOW, which saw Cicero pin Benz, but Benz said he wanted to find someone to hurt and injury Cicero, someone with no remorse, no emotional attachment, and no compassion. Benz announced today that he has found that man and he is none other than WWF/E Legend 6′ 7”, 400 lb, “The Ugandan Giant” Kamala!!! “Kamala doesn’t care about winning, all he cares about is hurting somebody,” said Benz. “And that somebody on Jan 31st is Jimmy Cicero!!!” Kamala has an impressive resume and over his career and has had many high profile battles with Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Jake “The Snake” Roberts, so Jimmy Cicero is sure to have more than his hands full at the FLYERS SKATE ZONE. When Cicero was informed of his opponent, he responded, “Sure, Kamala is a legend, a mountain of a man, and he is a savage, but nothing, NOTHING, that Nicky Benz throws my way is going to kill my inspiration and motivation on Jan 31st as I WILL BODYSLAM AUTISM with all my friends, family and fans!”

Another legend will be making his way to BODYSLAM AUTISM, and he is one-half of one of the greatest tag-teams of all time, RICKY MORTON. Morton, as one-half of the “Rock and Roll Express” with his partner Robert Gibson, re-defined tag team wrestling in the 80s with their classic battles against the NWA stars at that time, most notably the “Midnight Express” compromised of Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane, and Dennis Condrey with Jim Cornette. Morton was a prominent player in Jim Crockett’s promotion when he went national in 1985 and expanded from the Mid-Atlantic region, and made a big impact in the Philadelphia-area market. While know best for his tag-team exploits, Morton also fared well in many singles competitions and had a memorable feud with “Nature Boy” Ric Flair over the NWA World Heavyweight Title. While never known for his size or power, above all else, Morton was known for his heart, desire, and ability to withstand punishment from his opponent and make a victorious comeback. Morton’s opponent at BODYSLAM AUTISM is someone who has been making a big impact in the TWA, “Mr. 5.5” Matt Riviera, VH-1 Reality TV Star of “Megan Wants a Millionaire fame. “Mr 5.5” (as in net worth in millions of dollars) said he can’t wait for Jan 31st. “I encourage all the fans to come out to the FLYERS SKATE ZONE to see Ricky Morton one final time, as I promise, on Jan 31, 2010, it will be the night the music dies…It’s Matt Riviera’s time to shine!!!

AUTISM is a developmental disorder that affects an estimated 1.5 million individuals in the United States and tens of millions worldwide. Today, it is estimated that 1 in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined (http://www.autismspeaks.org/whatisit/index..php).

When professional wrestler “Wiseguy” Jimmy Cicero and his wife, Windra, learned that their young son was autistic in early 2009, Cicero took positive action and returned to the squared circle after a 3 year hiatus with the sole purpose of using his pro wrestling appearances, contacts and network to promote Autism Awareness. In late 2009, Cicero’s family’s situation was compounded when they learned that a second, younger son of theirs was also autistic.

Since that time, Cicero has been promoting autism awareness and raising money for education and research for AUTISM SPEAKS (http://www..autismspeaks.org/). Cicero dubbed his mission as HELP “Wiseguy” JIMMY CICERO BODYSLAM AUTISM. He now sells T-shirts that bears this name at all of his appearances and online at www.jimmycicerowrestling.com and gives all the proceeds to AUTISM SPEAKS.
