NWS Internet News Update For Week Of 9/26
Former ECW/WWE Star Devon Dudley Got The Tables, New NWS Champion Crowned, Three Mega Shows With Mega Stars This Weekend, More October Action Announced, 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 October 7th, NWS returns to Central Jersey and another immensely popular venue, Manville, NJ’s VFW Hall (600 Washington Avenue, just off Main Street, minutes from Routes 22 and 287) with a 7:45pm bell time.
He’s a recent WWE SmackDown! TV star and a member of one of pro wrestling’s most famous families. She’s a former WWE Divas Champion and the current “Knockouts” Champion on TNA/Impact Wrestling (and one look at her, and you’ll agree she’s a knockout, all right). They’re Chavo Guerrero and Mickie James, and they be just two of many pro wrestling superstars on hand this coming Friday night.
Mickie James will be part of a women’s wrestling showdown in Manville, as she will be taking on another former WWE TV diva, Jillian Hall. Jillian called herself the “best singing voice in wrestling” (although most fans will disagree), but Mickie has vowed that Jillian will be singing the blues in defeat when they meet in the ring this Friday.
Also coming to Manville is a former ECW high-flying sensation who had some of the best aerial matches ever in ECW, also a former ROH star, and currently seen on TNA/Impact Wrestlingthe great Jerry Lynn.
Also in Manville, The Nigerian Nightmares (La-Fu & Bo-Bo) will be taking on their biggest challenge to date… none other than… The Nigerian Nightmares (the original Nightmares, Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu). Over the past summer, Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu made their return to NWS since leaving in early 2011, and were obviously not pleased at their fellow countrymen La-Fu & Bo-Bo taking their spot, and their displeasure went from looks to angry words to fisticuffs in the blinking of an eye. There can only be one Nigerian Nightmares team in NWS, so in Manville the two teams will battle for their spot in NWS in a “Jungle Fever” match.
NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion and 2011 J-Cup winner “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans will also be in Manville, along with “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto, Johnny Knockout, “Mr. Entertainmet” J.D. Smoothie, Damian Darling, Team Thunder Horse (Indian Chief Draven & “The Warrior” Jack Spade), Rich “Ice Pick” Lowinski, and much more!
Tickets are only $20 for adults and $18 for kids and seniors.
Saturday night October 8th, the stars of NWS will be part of JES Promotions’ huge pro wrestling show at Staten Island, NY’s Victory Sports Arena (a.k.a. Victory Performance Center, 425 Wild Avenue in the Travis neighborhood, just off Victory Boulevard & The Staten Island Expressway) with a 7:35pm bell time.
This will be one of the biggest collection of current and former pro wrestling legends ever assembled in Staten Island, or quite possibly anywhere else for that matter, topped off by encore appearances by Chavo Guerrero, Jerry Lynn, Jillian Hall, and Mickie James.
This show will also feature plenty of regional and local pro mat stars, including the star of National Geographic Channel’s pro wrestling special “Slammed”, Danny Inferno, plus “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto, Sean Static, Chris Verrazano, Brooklyn Jeff, Andy Ridge, Johnny Knockout, and Sanjay, and other stars of tri-state area promotion National Wrestling Superstars including Team Casanova (Damian Darling & NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion and 2011 J-Cup winner “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, The Nigerian Nightmares (Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu), “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm, and much more! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this huge pro wrestling event right on Staten Island. Tickets are only $24 for adults and $22 for kids and seniors.
Sunday afternoon October 9th, the stars of NWS head south to team up with their own Delaware affiliate Funkdafied Wrestling Federation for “Hardcore Funk ‘N Country” at the Christiana, DE Fire Company Hall (2 East Main Street, at Route 7, minutes from I-95/295/495) with a 3:30pm bell time.
The show will be headlined by a battle of two TV divas making their first ever appearances in FWF, as former WWE TV star and self-proclaimed “best singing voice in wrestling” Jillian Hall takes on former WWE Women’s Champion and current TNA/Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion, the one and only Mickie James. Also headlining the show will be a former ECW and ROH star, and also a current TNA/Impact Wrestling star, the high-flying Jerry Lynn. There will also be appearances by the newly-crowned FWF Heavyweight Champion White Lotus, FWF Cruiserweight Champion “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, “Black Atlas” Cocky Johnson, The Funky White Boy, Justin Cage, and long-time FWF star Ruff Ryder will be wrestling his Retirement Match that afternoon.

Results From Last Weekend
NWS returned to regular action with the first half of a double-shot weekend this past Friday night September 30th at Stirling, NJ’s Long Hill Township Community Center. And although the crowd was light, the action in the ring was heavy and hot.
In the opening match, masked luchador Manuel Manny Moore, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones and “interpreter” Steve “Monsta” Mack, took on The World Famous TV Wrestling Clown. Before the match, Monsta Mack seized the microphone and tried to convince the fans that his opponent for tonight, former ECW/WWE and current Impact Wrestling star Devon Dudley, was not going to show up because he was scared. Commissioner Moore reassured Mack, and the fans, that Devon’s flight ws late but he would be here in time for the main event. The match finally got under way with The Clown’s comic antics getting the better of Manny for the first few minutes. But in the end, the numbers game proved to be the eciding factor, as Joe Jones distracted the referee allowing Mack and Manny to double-team The Clown, and Moore was able to hold down the beaten Clown for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Manuel Manny Moore.
In the second match, The Soul Assassin took on the debut’ing Wrestling Matt. The veteran Assassin dominated most of the match, but one too many mistakes by The Assassin allowed Matt to pick up the surprise win.
Winner: Wrestling Matt.
The third match was a tag-team affair pitting NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion & 2011 J-Cup winner “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans and his partner Bobby Youngblood against the young team of “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm and Fast Eddie Franken. The veterans Oceans and Youngblood made fun of their relatively rookie opponents and pushed them around the first couple of minutes, but Fehrm and Eddie eventually got ticked off at their attitude and turned up the heat on their opponents. The battle eventually spilled out to the floor, where Oceans and Youngblood pulled out “Wet Floor” signs and whacked their opponents with them, then threw them back into the ring and got the double 1-2-3’s on them, plus some extra kicks for good measure.
Winners: “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans & Bobby Youngblood.
The fourth match pitted veteran “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones and “bodyguard” Steve “Monsta” Mack, against the popular “Jersey Shore Lunatic” Slayer. Before the match started, Monsta Mack once again berated the fans that Devon Dudley wasn’t going to show up. Commissioner Moore announced that not only was he tired of Monsta Mack’s jawing, but Monsta Mack wasn’t even contractually allowed in Smoothie’s corner and had to laeve or risk forfeiting his match (and his paycheck!). After Mack beat a hasty retreat to the back, Slayer burst into the ring. The two battled back and forth until Slayer began to dominate, but as Slayer went for his victory move, Jones called Monsta Mack out from the back, and Mack, Smoothie, and Jones beat down Slayer three-on-one until The World Famous Wrestling Clown and the aforementioned Devon Dudley himself ran out to chase the attackers away.
Winner: None (double disqualification).
After a short intermission, the fifth match was another tag-team match with Sucio Suarez and local favorite Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero taking on The 2 Rude Dudes (NWS Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers and NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc). Suarez and Cannonball took the fight to the veterans Rogers and Havoc and kept the match even. Towards the end, the befuddled Dudes collided with each other, knocking Havoc out of the ring and allowing the staggered Rogers to be double-teamed by both opponents before Cannonball pinned him for the win.
Winners: Sucio Suarez & Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero.
It was time for the main event, a “We Want Tables” Match pitting Steve “Monsta” Mack, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones, against former ECW & WWE Tag-Team Champion and current Impact Wrestling star Devon Dudley. The two tore into each other back and forth, with Joe Jones sticking his nose in whenever possible, until Devon knocked Jones out of the ring and smashed Mack through a table for the win.
Winner: Devon Dudley.
NWS concluded their double-shot weekend Saturday night October 1st at their favorite Jersey Shore venue, the Brick, NJ Elks Lodge. A near-sellout crowd filled all corners of the Elks Lodge, and as typical of all Brick crowds, was hot and enthusiastic all night long.
The show opened with a bonus bout added at the last minute, a Triple-Threat Match between “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, “Retro Rocker” Ricky Roxx, and Chris “Boom-Boom” Powers (who was making his NWS debut). Roxx was clearly the fan’s favorite in this match, and dominated them both in the opening minutes until Smoothie and Powers eventually ganged up on Roxx and threw him out of the ring before turning and fighting each other. Roxx returned to the ring and superkicked Powers, but Smoothie seized Roxx and planted him with a neckbreaker and then hit a flying “Leg Drop Across The Delaware” and got the 1-2-3 pin.
Winner: “Mr. Entertainment” J.D.Smoothie
The official first bout was a tag-team attraction with A.C. Kewl and Bobby Youngblood taking on “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm and the returning Mark Modest. Kewl and Youngblood quickly isolated Fehrm in their corner and beat him down. Fehrm eventually fought out of both opponents’ pin attempts and managed to reach his corner, only to find Mark standing around on the floor. Mark did eventually come into the ring… to join in the beatdown of Fehrm. After the referee threw Mark out f the ring, Kewl hit a Full-Nelson Slam on Fehrm and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: A.C. Kewl and Bobby Youngblood
Before the next match, out came Steve “Monsta” Mack and former ECW & WCW hardcore legend Crowbar, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones. After Joes insulted the fans, Mack took the microphone and told the Brick fans that he had been “cheated” out of victory against former ECW & WWE star Devon Dudley the night before, but tonight he had his own former ECW icon in Crowbar, and they would defeat Devon and The Atomic Dog in their tag-team main event. They also heaped insults at Commissioner Gino Moore, who responded that he would see who had the last laugh tonight.
The next match pitted Mike Mattix against “Jersey Shore Lunatic” Slayer, with manager Father Ozzy. Slayer’s unpredictable style befuddled Mattix for most of the match, but Mattix proved his own toughness and would not be held down for the 1-2-3. In the end, as they were brawling around on the mat, the bell sounded indicating that the time limit had expired. The fans clamored for five more minutes, and initially both wrestlers agreed, but Mattix took one look at Slayer’s insane determination and changed his mind and left.
Winner: None (time-limit draw)
The next match was originally scheduled to be a “Jungle Rumble” between the Original Nigerian Nightmares (Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu) and the New Nigerian Nightmares, but the New Nightmares were not there (it was rumored that Immigration had some issues with them), so it was “Card Subject To Change”, and Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu’s opponents were none other than The Baghdad Bullies (Saddam Insane & new member King Khali Kazam, who insisted on being called “KKK”). The Bullies matched The Nightmares in size and power, but the inexperience of them as teammates gave The Nightmares the early advantage. Saddam and Kazam were able to isolate the smaller Sna-Fu (if you can call 400 pounds “small”) in their corner for several minutes, but Sna-Fu withstood the assault and managed to tag in Ma-Fu, and the four began brawling uncontrollably on the floor. The referee had no choice but to count both teams out.
Winners: None (double countout).
After intermission, the next match was a non-title grudge match, a “Whack-‘Em Sack-‘Em Wet Floor Signs” Match between bitter rivals NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones & 2 Rude Dudes teammate “Rampage” Rogers in his corner, and “Bounty Hunter” Johnny Ringo, with his Bounty Boys in his corner. The match was only supposed to involve “Wet Floor” signs, but both combatants also came out armed with chairs and metal trays with “Wet Floor” written on them (to make it legal). But if that wasn’t enough, a special guest referee was announced, none other than former NWA Canadian Champion “The Hockey Goon” Rocco Dorsey. It was obviously pre-arranged by Joe Jones, as Rocco displayed immediate favoritism towards Havoc and his entourage, blocking Ringo’s use of the signs, and making super-fast pin counts for Havoc and super-slow ones for Ringo. The two fought all over the Lodge, with Havoc dominating due to the interference of Joe Jones and the blatent favoritism by referee Dorsey, but unable to put Ringo away. Towards the end of the match, Havoc tied Ringo up in the ropes in hopes of knocking him out. One of Ringo’s boys came in to try and stop him, but was beaten down by Havoc and Jones. That was enough to motivate Ringo to free himself and power back against Havoc. But Joe Jones’ distraction once again changed the momentum. Havoc stacked a bunch of Wet Floor signs together and tried to powerbomb Ringo into them, but that attempt was broken up when Rocco stunned the crowd by hitting Havoc with a chair! Ringo then back-body-dropped Havoc onto the pile of Wet Floor signs, and covered Havoc as Rocco counted the 1-2-3 for Ringo.
Winner: “Bounty Hunter” Johnny Ringo.
After the match, Rocco took the mic and told Havoc and Rampage that he, not they, had spent years making NWS a success in places like Brick, and he wasn’t going to be upstaged by two young punks like them. A furious Rampage Rogers demanded a one-on-one rematch with Rocco. Commissioner Moore announced that at the next Brick show in January, both Rogers and Havoc would team together against Rocco and Johnny Ringo.
The next match, one of the co-main event matches, was an NWS Heavyweight Title match between current champion “Rampage” Rogers, with Gigalo Joe Jones in his corner, against challenger and former champion Ray Ray Marz, with manager Father Ozzy in his corner. With the crowd loudly cheering for him, Marz tore into Rogers and dominated him early in the match, until Rogers took a time-out then came back and exerted his power advantage, adding a low blow for effect. Marz withstood the assault, and after powering out of a chin-lock submission attempt, hit a flying knee, neckbreaker, and leg drop, but was unable to hold him down for the three count. Rampage went for a Crucifix Slam, but Marz powered out and locked on a Sharpshooter, but Joe Jones distracted the referee while Rogers was tapping out. When Marz went after Jones, Rogers pulled a chain out of his tights and wrapped it around his hand and snuck up behind Marz. But before he could hit Marz with it, Father Ozzy jumped in the ring and threw a handful of powder in Rogers’ face! Marz hit the blinded Rogers with a flying knee from the top rope, and covered him 1-2-3!
Winner… and *NEW* NWS Heavyweight Champion: Ray-Ray Marz.
The other main event match was a “We Want Tables Tag-Team Match”, where the winning team would have to put the losers through two tables, with Steve “Monsta” Mack and former ECW & WCW hardcore icon Crowbar, with manager Gigalo Joe Jones, taking on The Atomic Dog and former ECW & WWE and current Impact Wrestling star Devon Dudley. Mack and Crowbar jumped Devon and The Dog in the ring before the bell rang, and the fight was on. While Crowbar and Dog brawled in one corner, Mack spiked Devon on the corner post, then dragged a table into the ring. The Dog had Crowbar trapped in the corner, but Mack snuck up behind Dog and low-blowed him, and Crowbar powerbombed Dog through the table to give his team a 1-0 lead. The match resumed and Devon roared back against Crowbar and Mack, clotheslining Crowbar out of the ring and following him to the outside. While the two former ECW’ers brawled on the outside, The Dog and Mack fought on the inside. Mack propped a table up in the corner and tried to clothesline Dog into it, but missed, and Dog picked up Mack and delivered a Thumpin’ Powerslam on Mack right into the table to tie the match at 1-1. With the deciding fall at hand, all four battled near the final table. Crowbar attempted to ram Dog’s head through the table, but Dog blocked it, and lifted up Crowbar to slam him through the table, but Crowbar held onto the ropes and escaped. Crowbar attempted to clothesline Dog, but Dog ducked and caught Crowbar, and he and Devon delivered a textbook 3-D on Crowbar, smashing him through the table and getting the winning fall.
Winners (two tables to one): The Atomic Dog & Devon Dudley.
After the match, Monsta Mack got in Commissioner Moore’s face and, against the advice of Joe Jones, demanded a rematch for himself and Crowbar against Devon and The Dog. Commissioner Moore said NWS got ahead by giving the fans what they wanted, and he announced that Mack would get a rematch against Devon and The Dog in Middletown in November. When Crowbar said he was not available, Mack said it doesn’t matter who his partner is, and Commissioner Moore announced that Mack’s partner would be Danny Inferno.

Other Upcoming Shows
Friday night October 14th, NWS returns to the Union, NJ Elks Lodge (281 Chestnut Street, minutes from the Parkway and Route 22) with a 7:45pm bell time.
The weather is getting cool, the fans are cool about NWS returning to Union, so it’s appropriate that the main event features the former WWE star who defined “cool” more than anyone… former Intercontinental Champion Carlito, who will be taking on another TV wrestling star with aspirations of coolness… TNA/Impact Wrestling star “Jersey Shore” Robbie E. And speaking of Jersey Shore, what Union area show would be complete without Union’s two favorite sons and NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea). They will compete along with three other top area tag-teams in the form of Too Hot And Dangerous (“Too Hot” Steve Scott & Nick Talent), Team Casanovas (Damian Darling & 2011 J-Cup winner “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans), and the duo of NWS Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers and NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, otherwise known as The 2 Rude Dudes. There will also be a “Crazy-8 Gauntlet Match” featuring Adam Eltouny, W.A.S.P, “Lonesome Dove” Alex, Wrestling Matt, Chris B., Fast Eddie Franken, and a pair of local favorites in Union’s own Steve “Gipper” Gipke and Kenilworth’s “Tuff” Tony Scorace, where last two men standing will team up in another tag-team match that night. Plus appearances by The Nigerian Nightmares, Hillbilly Justin Blackwell, Mister Nick Gregory, Ryan Angus, Manuel Manny Moore, Snake-Eyez and much more! Tickets are only $19 for adults and $17 for kids and seniors.
Saturday night October 15th, NWS returns to Old Bridge, NJ’s Knights Of Columbus Hall (61 Pine Street, just off Route 18 South, minutes from Route 9) with a 7:35pm bell time.
The main event will feature an encore appearance from former WWE Intercontinental Champion Carlito, who has issued an open challenge to anyone in the NWS locker room, and it’s anybody’s guess as to who will have the bravado to accept. Also in Old Bridge, The Nigerian Nightmares (La-Fu & Bo-Bo) will be taking on their biggest challenge to date… none other than… The Nigerian Nightmares (the original Nightmares, Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu). Over the past summer, Ma-Fu & Sna-Fu made their return to NWS since leaving in early 2011, and were obviously not pleased at their fellow countrymen La-Fu & Bo-Bo taking their spot, and their displeasure went from looks to angry words to fisticuffs in the blinking of an eye. There can only be one Nigerian Nightmares team in NWS, so in Old Bridge, the two teams will battle for their spot in NWS in a “Jungle Fever” match. There will be plenty of NWS championship gold in the ring in Old Bridge, as both Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers and Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc, collectively known as The 2 Rude Dudes, will see in-ring action, along with Junior Heavyweight Champion and 2011 J-Cup winner “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, and South Brunswick’s own Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd, plus appearances by “Retro Rocker” Ricky Roxx, Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, Slayer, “Hillbilly” Justin Blackwell, and much more. Tickets are only $20 for adults and $18 for kids and seniors.
Friday night October 28th, NWS returns to Long Branch at the Bucky James Community Center (231 Wilbur Ray Avenue, just off Broadway, minutes from Route 36 and the Parkway) with a 7:45pm bell time.
And being that it’s Halloween weekend, there will be plenty of goblins, ghosts, and zombies all around, but none bigger than the six-foot former ECW Zombie, who will see ring time in Long Branch. Also in the spirit of Halloween, there will also be appearances by The World Famous TV Wrestling Clown and the popular Atomic Dog. And if you love to be startled out of your seat by death-defying acts, then you do not want to miss the Triple-Threat Ladder Match for the vacant NWS Cruiserweight Title that night between former champion “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, current NWS Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd, and NWS newcomer Marcus Streets. But the wrestlers don’t have to be the only ones dressed for Halloween… all kids are encouraged to come in their best costume, and there will be a contest and prizes for the best costume for ages 1-12 and 13 & over. That and so much more.
Tickets are only $20 for adults and $17 for kids and seniors.
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.
