Official Hoodslam

It’s been an insane 2 years for the accidental phenomenon Hoodslam as they have become the top drawing independent in the San Francisco/Bay Area with their unique take on professional wrestling that includes live music and colorful pop culture characters from the worlds of video games, children’s books, Zombies, movies, and more. It’s been called an NC-17 Chikara by Sean Radican of the PWTorch, and we agree!

This Friday will mark the first time that outside talent has stepped into a Hoodslam ring, as the Warlord of Weird Sinn Bohdi will make his Hoodlam Debut as part of the Lethal Lottery Tag Team Tournament! Who knows what sort of bizarre behavior will be demonstrated by the Mack Daddy of The Macabre as he intends to make his mark and let his freak flag fly in and around the Hoodslam ring. Hopefully this freak can get along with his randomly selected partner.

The Brian Kendrick is an enigma, wrapped up inside a mystery. Trained by the legendary Shawn Michaels, he is a former WWE Tag Team champion, and has wrestled all over the world for top companies like TNA and ROH. His non corporate views on life may have gotten him heat in the big feds, but Hoodslam will be giving this awesome performer a chance to be himself and showcase his incredible talents to one of the rowdiest crowds around. Who’s name will be randomly drawn to partner up with this tag team specialist? And will they be able to go all the way?

How does it all work?
20 participants will enter into the wild blue yonder. They will be randomly drawn into 10 tag teams, who will fight in 5 tag team matches. The winners will go on to a 10 man over the top rope battle royal, where only one can win. He who survives the Lethal Lottery Battle Bowl will be awarded the Brock Lesnar Memorial Trophy, and the prize of any match, with any Hoodslammer, at any time they choose..

Other Featured Matches Include:

“Career Vs Stripes”

“The Official Senior Official” The Pink Panther Vs Pooh Jack!

“Grudge Match”

Juiced Lee Vs Zombie Vinny Butabi

Live Improv Commentary by The Young Senior Official “OG” Kevin Gill and Tough Enough’s AJ Kirsch.

Otis the Gimp


James (of the James Gang)

Rick Scott And Scott Rick: The Stoner Brothers

The Mempho Mofo has been building a reputation in Virigina for quite some time as one of the best. A former Alpha Champion and reigning and defending Continental Champion, Mark Bravura has become a staple in the Mid-Atlantic region. Bravura has recently been feuding with “The Geordie Bulldog” Sean Denny over the Continental Title, a feud that has spanned many years in NWA Fusion over both of these championships. On April 21st, NWA Fusion returns to action for the biggest professional wrestling event of the year in the state of Virginia, Shanghai Showdown on at King and Queen Elementary School. The Mempho Mofo defends the NWA Continental Title against Denny one more time. We’ll also be speaking to the Mofo on his experiences teaming with Shaun Ricker in Future Stars of Wrestling, working matches for TNA Wrestling, and participating in the Team Taz Dojo.

What else should we talk about? Call in and you can decide.
