Shongo, Sampson settle score at Night of Legends

There was a history between Abo Shongo and Short Sleeve Sampson dating back to a match earlier in 2011 in AWE.

Sampson had gotten the victory at a house show in Virginia, but Shongo had come thisclose to getting the better of the 12-year veteran.

The two had a score to settle, and they did so at the Oct. 15 AWE Night of Legends pay-per-view.

It’s a rare match where the 5;7″, 170-pound Shongo has the size advantage over an opponent, but that was the case in the matchup with the 4’2″, 120-pound Sampson.

The rookie recorded a series of near-falls on Sampson, but the older, wiser Sampson was able to get the pinfall win in the end.

Get a taste of the back-and-forth action on our AWE YouTube channel.

Final card for 11/19 announced!

NWA Coastal makes its debut in the Bayville Elks Lodge on November 19th at 7:30 pm with one of the most exciting lineups in NJ independent wrestling. Commissioner Tommy Cairo has pulled out all stops in an effort to bring you an exciting show with an international flair.

The main event will pit former NWA Coastal Heavyweight Champion “Bad Boy” Danny Pagan against Patch (with manager Millionaire John II) in a rematch with a FIRST BLOOD stipulation! Pagan lost the title to Patch in September, when Patch’s manager, Millionaire John held Pagan’s feet and got a 3 count pin for Patch. John has vowed that he and his “Boardwalk Mafia” will keep the title on Patch by any means necessary, and have claimed that Pagan will “bleed like the pig he is” on November 19th.

NWA Coastal Iron Man Champion “The Cuban Crippler” Ricky Reyes won’t be available due to a previous commitment, but there will be an elimination match to decide the #1 contender for Reyes’ belt, as NWA star Vordell Walker will take on the Carribean legend Bronco Internacional, with the winner to face Reyes at the January show.

In a rematch from the September show, Jersey indy wrestling legend Wacky Wayne Woo takes on his friend, the also legendary Biggie Biggs. Their last match erupted into a full hardcore brawl, and it seemed like friendship went right out the window, as both wrestlers went through tables, got hit with chairs, and ultimately ended up in a tag match where a fireball was blown to get the win. No one knows what will happen on the 19th, but Coastal fans are STILL talking about the violence in the last match, so time will tell.

Phoenix Wrestling Federation and its promoter, the unpredictable Max Vitelli, will showcase their gorgeous and lethal brand of womens wrestling, as Aida Marie takes on Simply D’Vyne. Simply D’Vyne destroyed the competition in a 3 way dance at the last show, and seems intent on showing why she should be the #1 contender for the PWF title.

The popular “Hybrid” Josh Adams, a mainstay in NWA Force 1 for several years now, also makes his case to contend for the Iron Man belt held by Ricky Reyes, as he takes on the arrogant Joey Spades, who “forced” his way into a contenders match for the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Championship against Alex Payne. While Spades lost the match, his arrogance hasn’t left him yet, though Josh has vowed to shut Spades up for good.
Luscious La Ron returns to NWA Coastal, as he takes on the very tough Ryan “The Blackheart” Haston.

Also scheduled to appear that evening, Vicious Vin Ceres, IronMan Tommy Cairo, Kris Jacobs, “Il Capo” Jason Gotti, Daisy McMurdurr, Jaden, Fred Richards, and more.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, and kids under 10 admission is only $10. Tickets are available at the Elks Lodge, 247 Route 9 in Bayville (732-269-2954), or via

Remember, for every ticket sold, NWA Coastal will donate $1 dollar to Family Promise of Southern Ocean County, a fantastic charity whose mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.
