NWS Internet News Update For Week Of 02/06: Former WWE Star Fit Finlay Debuts For NWS, Ladders & Tables & Chairs, Samoan Brothers, 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 Pro Wrestling Superstars.

Upcoming Shows This Weekend

No shows this weekend. NWS returns to action with a double-shot weekend February 17th-18th (see below).
Results From Last Weekend

National Pro Wrestling Superstars held another double-shot weekend with a two show “Super Brawl Bowl” this past Friday night February 3rd with their first show ever at Neptune’s West Grove Methodist Church, followed by a return on Saturday night February 4th to Keyport, NJ’s St. Joseph’s Church Gym. The Friday night crowd was on the small side, but they were as loud and enthusisatic as the over 600 fans who packed into the St. Joseph’s Gym on Saturday night (one of NWS’ biggest crowd ever).
Results from Friday night February 4th in Neptune:
As the opening bars of the National Anthem were played (as is customary at all NWS events to honor our great country), out came the collective entourage of NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, NWS Cruiserweight Champion “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, “The Final Freebird” Damian Darling, Judas Young, “Mr. Varsity” Jeff Noyze, and Jumbo Joe Gunns. Oceans and Smoothie promised that, as the newly-formed team “The Smooth Lovers”, they would take apart The World Famous TV Clown and whomever his partner was. Damian Darling took the microphone and promised to send former WWE star Fit Finlay, who was making his first-ever NWS appearance this weekend, packing for good when they met in the main event that night. The unpopular group finally left the ring to the cheering of the crowd, and the National Anthem was re-played from the start without further interruption.
In the opening contest, a non-title bout, FWF (NWS’s Delaware-based affiliate) Cruiserweight Champion “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm took on NWS Hardcore Champion and 2 Rude Dudes member “Corrupted” Corey Havoc. The larger Havoc asserted his size and strength advantage for most of the bout, but could not put the plucky Fehrm away. In the end, Havoc rammed Fehrm’s head into the turnbuckle and set him up for a crucifix slam, but Fehrm was able to wriggle out of the hold and rolled Havoc up in a small package and get the 1-2-3 pin.
Winner: “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm
The second contest was a match for the NWS Jersey Shore Championship as reigning champion The Jersey Kidd took on the challenge of former Jersey Shore Jocks member Mike Dennis. These two wrestlers were evenly matched and fought a back-and-forth hard-hitting battle with neither man getting the advantage. After ten minutes and innumerable near-falls by both men, the bell rang signaling the end of the time limit, and the match was ruled a draw.
Winner: None (time-limit draw). The Jersey Kidd retains the NWS Jersey Shore Championship.
In the third contest, the duo of “The Smooth Lovers”, NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans, NWS Cruiserweight Champion “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, accompanied by their entourage of Judas Young, “Mr. Varsity” Jeff Noyze, and Jumbo Joe Gunns, took on the team of “Retro Rocker” Ricky Roxx & The World Famous TV Wrestling Clown, who were accompanied by managers Alex “The Bear” Pinnix & Merrill “The Prodigy” Richardson. The high-flying agility of Roxx and the antics of The Clown held the early advantage, but with the trio of wrestlers on the outside in Oceans’ and Smoothie’s corner, the tables were inevitably turned, and Roxx was double-teamed by Oceans and Smoothie for several minutes (quintuple-teamed if you count the additional three on the outside). But Roxx withstood the assault, reversed a “Boom-Boom-Pow” finisher attempt by Oceans into a DDT, and tagged in The Clown who went to the circus on Smoothie and Oceans. After The Clown reversed a Pedigree attempt by Oceans into a Stone Cold Stunner, he had Oceans covered for the pin, but Smoothie came into the ring with a “Wet Floor” sign and nailed both the referee and The Clown. Judas and Noyze and Gunns came into the ring and joined in the attack on Roxx and The Clown. Alex Pinnix and Merrill Richardson tried to fight them off, but they were overwhelmed. The Atomic Dog ran into the ring to help out his friends, but even he was overpowered. Then the odds were even when former WWE star Fit Finlay, always ready for a fight, ran into the ring, and Smoothie and Oceans and their co-horts retreated to the outside. The referee regained consciousness, saw the menagerie of wrestlers inside and outside the ring, and threw out the match.
Winner: None (double disqualification)
Fit Finlay remained in the ring to take pictures with the fans during a short intermission.
After intermission, the fourth match was a six-man tag-team match. In one corner was the trio seen earlier that night of Judas Young & “Mr. Varsity” Jeff Noyze & Jumbo Joe Gunns. Their opponents were scheduled to be The Atomic Dog & Mister Nick Gregory & Hillbilly Justin Blackwell, but Atomic Dog came to the ring alone and informed everyone that Gregory and Blackwell’s car had suffered a flat tire en route and had not arrived. The Dog brushed off Judas’ team’s insistence that he forfeit the match, and instead introduced his two new partnerts… Alex “The Bear” Pinnix and “The Wrestling Referee” Sargeant Jimmy Storm, and their manager, Merrill “The Prodigy” Richardson.
The match finally began, and Atomic Dog initially out-powered the smaller Judas, then Judas tagged in big Jeff Noyze, who insisted on going head-to-head with the biggest member of the opposing team Alex Pinnix. The two attenpted to shoulder-tackle each other with no success. Sargeant Storm then tagged in against Joe Gunns, and Gunns soon turned the tables on the Sarge, and he and Judas and Noyze triple-teamed him for several minutes. But the Gulf War Veteran Storm knew how to fight out of tough spots, and after enduring two head-butts to his “nether region”, he ducked out of a third and tagged in Atomic Dog who cleaned house. The Dog and Pinnix double-teamed Jeff Noyze, Merrill Richardson got in a shoulder tackle, and Sargeant Storm hit him with a flying splash and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: The Atomic Dog & Alex “The Bear” Pinnix & “The Wrestling Referee” Sargeant Jimmy Storm
After the match, and some post-match dancing by The Dog and his team, Judas Young returned to the ring and vented his anger at his team losing, singling out Merrill Richardson for interfering. Judas charged at The Prodigy, but Prodigy caught him in a powerslam and planted him into the mat, and the referee counted a symbolic 1-2-3. Now even more furious, Judas demanded a one-on-one match with Richardson, and NWS Commissioner Dapper Johnny Falco announced that the two would meet in nearby Long Branch next month.
“Mr. Varsity” Jeff Noyze also took the microphone and vented his anger towards “The Wrestling Referee” Sargeant Jimmy Storm, whom he claimed was only a referee pretending to be a bad wrestler.Noyze challenged Storm to a one-on-one match at the Long Branch show next month, and the Sargeant accepted.
The Main Event that evening saw “The Final Freebird” Damian Darling go one-on-one with former WWE star Fit Finlay, who was accompanioed to the ring by the West Grove Methodist Church’s Pastor Larry. The two initially traded wrestling holds, which the veteran Finlay dominated. The match eventually broke down into a hard-hitting brawl, and Damian gave as good as he got. The two traded blows back and forth for several minutes, neither man giving any quarter. Towards the end, Finlay fought out of an arm bar submission and came roaring back, nailing Damian with a sit down splash and a rolling shoulder splash then covering him for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Fit Finlay
Results from Saturday night February 4th in Keyport:
The fans were treated to a pre-show “dark match” as Fast Eddie Franken took on Chris “Boom-Boom” Powers. After trading holds back and forth for several minutes, Eddie reversed a crucifix slam attempt into a rolling DDT and pinned Powers 1-2-3.
Winner: Fast Eddie Franken
Announcer Pat Savino was introduced as the co-host for the evening.
The opening contest was a one-on-one match between “Stellar” Travis Blake and “Outlaw” Shane O’Brien. No strangers to each other, these two fought a hard-hitting match with neither man getting the advantage. After about ten minutes, the two attempted simultaneous cross-body blocks on each other and collided chest-first in mid-air, knocking the wind out of each other. Neither man could get up by the referee’s ten-count, and the referee called for the bell.
Winner: None (double countout)
The second bout was a battle of the big men, as Gavone Brothers member Smiling Smith James, with manager Barnabus P. Tightwad, took on Mister Stars And Stripes, with St. Joe’s Baseball Coach Patty C. in his corner. Smith attacked Mr. Stars And Stripes before the bell, but the American hero turned the tide and kept Smith reeling. Barnabus and Patty C. spent most of the match chasing each other around the ring and away from each other’s wrestler. After powering Mr. SAS into a corner, Smith kept the pressure on for the next few minutes. But Mister SAS fought out of two bearhug submission attempts and roared back on offense. After flattening Smith with a flying dropkick off the top rope, Mr. SAS had him covered for the pinfall, but Barnabus leaped onto the ring apron to distract the referee. Mr. SAS went after Barnabus and was ready to flatten him as well, when Smith came charging in at him, but Mr. SAS saw him coming and ducked, and Smith collided with his own manager instead. Mr. SAS rolled up the stunned Smith from behind and got the 1-2-3.
Winner: Mister Stars And Stripes
The third match was a No-Disqualification Grudge Match between two more big men, Shock and Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero. Shock had been set to settle the score with long-time rival Michael Reigns, but Reigns was unavailable, so Shock looked to vent all his frustration on Cannonball instead. The two men could not out-power each other, so Shock pulled out a steel chair and used it on Cannonball. The two pounded on each other outside the ring and all over the gym for severalThe third match was a No-Disqualification Grudge Match between another pair of big men, as Shock took on Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero. Shock was originally set to settle the score with his long-time minutes, using chairs and other objects on each other. The two finally got back in the ring, and after hitting Cannonball with a powerslam and flying elbow, Shock set a chair in one corner to use to finish off Cannonball. Cannonball reversed things and drop-toe-hold’ed Shock into the chair, but when he went for his Cannonball Roll finisher on Shock, Shock moved and Cannonball struck only the chair. Shock dropped a leg on Cannonball and stood over him in triumph like he had the match won, but Cannonball used his last burst of energy to catch Shock with a schoolboy rollup and nearly pinned him. Shock rolled outside the ring and when Cannonball tried to pull him back in, Shock threw a handful of powder in his face. Shock hit the stunned Cannonball with a spinning leg kick and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winner: Shock
Match number four was a tag-team bout featuring former NWS Tag-Team Champions The 2 Rude Dudes (NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc & “Rampage” Rogers) taking on Jumbo Joe Gunns & B.F. Saluka. The champs tried to attack before the bell sounded, but Gunns and Saluka quickly turned the tables and used their size and power to dominate the Dudes. But Havoc tripped up Gunns, dragged him outside, and threw him into the ringpost, and the Dudes went on to double-team Gunns for several minutes. Gunns withstood the assault, and after simultaneous clotheslines took down both Gunns and Havoc, Gunns was able to tag in the big Saluka, who cleaned house on both Havoc and Rampage. Gunns and Saluka tossed both Havoc and Rampage into the corner, and both took turns crushing them with Avalanches. The weakened Havoc was then easily chokeslammed by Saluka and pinned 1-2-3.
Winners: Jumbo Joe Gunns & B.F. Saluka
During intermission, former WWE star Fit Finlay came out to take pictures in the ring with the fans.
After intermission, the fifth match was another grudge match from the last Bayshore area show, as NWS Cruiserweight Champion “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie took on Chill Will in a non-title match. Smoothie was still smarting from Chill Will pinning him in a tag-team match last Fall in nearby Middletown, and was ready to give some payback. Smoothie stuck to his word and pounded on Chill Will for most of the match, and even got into shoving matches with Referee Mike Jones when Jones tried to restrain Smoothie. Smoothie’s temper would cost him in the end, when after hitting Chill Will with a flying “Leg Drop Across The Delaware”, Chill Will kicked out of the pinfall attempt at two, and Smoothie started shoving Referee Jones in the corner once again. Jones had had enough of Smoothie and shoved him back, right into the arms of Chill Will who hit him with a belly-to-belly suplex, and Jones counted a quick 1-2-3 pin for Chill Will.
Winner: Chill Will
Smoothie was livid over losing again, and NWS Commissioner Johnny Falco announced that the two would meet again at NWS’ next Bayshore area show in North Middletown in May, and the NWS Cruiserweight Title would be on the line. Smoothie promised he would be there, and he would be bringing his own referee this time.
The next match was the first of the evening’s two main events, a tag-team challenge match, as former WWE stars and Samoan brothers Samu & Manu teamed together, with manager Barnabus P. Tightward, against former ECW & WCW hardcore icon Crowbar & former WWE & ECW star Fit Finlay, with St. Joseph’s Baseball Coach Patty C. in their corner. Samu & Manu attacked Finlay & Crowbar before the bell and asserted their size advantage early, but Finlay and Crowbar used their own unpredictable fighting styles to turn the tables. But when Crowbar went to the top rope, Samu shoved him off, and the two Samoan brothers worked over Crowbar for several minutes. Crowbar withstood the assault, and after taking down Manu with a flying dropkick and a jawbreaker, he tagged in Finlay who cleaned house on Manu and Samu. Finlay tried to take Manu and Samu out with a double-noggin-knocker, but that didn’t work as the Samoan brothers still had their coconut-hard heads, so Finlay planted them into the mat with a double facebuster, then picked up Manu in a Celtic Cross and powered him into the mat with a Samoan Drop, and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: Fit Finlay & Crowbar
The final match of the evening was a Triple-Threat Ladders-Tables-And-Chairs “Money-In-The-Bank” Match, when a briefcase holding a contract for any NWS match of the winner’s choice (including any title match) was suspended over the ring. The three particpants were Jersey Shore Jock Mike Dennis, NWS Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd, and NWS Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans. Oceans and Dennis initially ganged up on crowd favorite Jersey Kidd, but Kidd eventually overpowered them with a double clothesline in the ring, and a flying plancha onto them outside the ring. Kidd pulled out a ladder from under the ring, set it up in the ring under the briefcase, and began to climb. Dennis threw him off and began to climb the ladder, but Oceans tipped the ladder over, sending Dennis flying into the corner. Oceans and Dennis continued to pound on The Kidd, and Oceans went and got another ladder from under the ring, but Kidd went after him some more. Oceans tried to set the ladder up in the corner, but Dennis took him down, and The Kidd took Dennis down. Kidd set up the ladder under the briefcase and tried to climb up, but was thrown off by Dennis. Dennis brought a steel chair into the ring and wedged it into a corner, but when he tried to whip The Kidd into it, Kidd reversed it and sent Dennis flying straight into the chair. Oceans and The Kidd battled in the corner while Dennis recovered and tried to climb the ladder towards the briefcase. Oceans pulled him off and tried to climb up himself, but Dennis pulled him off, pounded him in the corner some more, and then tried to climb the ladder again. This time The Kidd tipped the ladder and sent Dennis flying. The Kidd picked up the ladder and set it up in the corner and tried to slingshot Dennis into it, but Dennis blocked the impact with his hands, and when Oceans charged at Dennis, Dennis hip-tossed Oceans right into the ladder. The Kidd brought another chair into the ring and whacked Dennis and Oceans with it, then tried to climb the ladder, but Oceans pulled him off and smacked his head into the ladder. Oceans picked up the chair and tried to take out The Kidd with it, but The Kidd kicked Oceans in the gut and seized the chair himself. But when The Kidd swung the chair at Oceans, Oceans ducked, and Dennis came in and drop-kicked the chair right into The Kidd’s head. The Kidd was busted wide open and bleeding heavily, and despite wanting to continue, he eventually had to be escorted to the back to get medical attention. Oceans tried to climb the ladder again, but Dennis knocked him off, and went outside the ring and brought in a table and put it in a corner. Oceans rammed Dennis’ head into the table, then planted him into the mat with his “Boom-Boom-Pow” finishing move. Oceans climbed the ladder and was on the verge of reaching the briefcase, but Dennis recovered and tipped the ladder over towards the table, sending Oceans flying off the ladder and crashing right through the table! Dennis then climbed the ladder with no one left to stop him, and retrieved the briefcase to win the match.
Winner: Jersey Shore Jock Mike Dennis
