NPWS presents another episode of its immensely popular “Tag-O-Mania” series, a night dedicated to tag-team wrestling. The highlight of the night will be a tag-team encounter with two big and tough teams, as Team Danny (National Geographic TV show “Slammed!” star Danny Inferno & “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto) will battle The Gavone Brothers (Big Vic & Smiling Smith).
It wouldn’t be a night of tag-team matches without, of course, the current NPWS Tag-Team Champions The 2 Rude Dudes (“Corrupted” Corey Havoc & “Rampage” Rogers), as well as former champions Team Casanova (“The Love Machine” Nicky Oceans & “The Final Freebird” Damian Darling). Other notable teams highlighting the card include National Geographic TV show “Slammed!” star Danny Inferno & “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny Demanto, collectively known as “Team Danny”, The Gavone Brothers (Big Vic & Smiling Smith), and Team Jersey (The Jersey Kidd & “Jersey Shore Jock” Mike Dennis).

Smoothie & J.T. Highlander), Judas Young & Q.T. Marshall, and more to be announced.
But the icing on this already big cake will be the presence of a very special guest enforcer referee, none other than former WWE & WCW Heavyweight Champion and TNA/Impact star “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash! Tickets are only $20, and all seats are ringside.
Friday night April 27th, NPWS returns to their favorite Central Jersey venue, the Manville, NJ V.F.W. Hall (600 Washington Avenue, just off Main Street, minutes from Routes 22, 28, and I-287) with a 7:45pm bell time.

Topping the bill in Brick will be the man who loves to fight (and has already had many good fights in NPWS), former WWE & WCW TV star Fit Finlay. Also headlining the show will be the miniature worm-eating one-time WWE TV star, The Little Boogeyman, and wrestling’s “Giant Odd-It-Tee” Goal-Duh. There will also be a six-man tag-team grudge match with plenty of champions and plenty of unknowns, as NPWS Heavyweight Champion Ray Ray Marz & Jersey Shore lunatic Slayer will team up with a secret mystery partner, against the trio of newly-crowned NPWS Tag-Team Champions The Two Rude Dudes (“Corrupted” Corey Havoc & Rampage” Rogers) and their secret mystery partner. There will also be a 2012 J-Cup Tournament qualifying match as NPWS Cruiserweight Champion “Mr. Entertainment” J.D.

After a highly-acclaimed debut card earlier this year, this much anticipated return to Neptune will be headlined by former WWE TV big man Gene “It’s Not My Fault” Snitsky, who will have his hands full with another NPWS big man, the popular Atomic Dog.
The remainder of this huge card will be another installment of NPWS’ Tag-O-Mania, a collection of some great tag-team matches, which will include appearances by NPWS Heavyweight Champion Ray Ray Marz and much more! Tickets are only $20 for adults and $18 for kids & seniors.

Buffalo Championship Wrestling’s First Annual Easter Extravaganza
Frank Young’s Sports Arena
April 7th, 2012
Pre-show Meet and Greet saw over 100 VIP fans come in and hang out with Tommy Dreamer, Shane Douglas and Krimson. Each fan received a collectors edition program as well as a collectors edition picture with all three inside the ring!
Rip Impact defeated Bobby Stone with a top rope splash
BCW Rookie Sensation Jeremiah Bradley continued his warpath defeating Evan McCloud and Bryan Castle by stealing the pinfall from Evan McCloud
NEW BCW Heavyweight Champion “Big League” John McChesney came to the ring with his new financial advisor Waylon from Billboard Charting band Mushroomhead! Waylon said he couldn’t believe he was in Buffalo and put down all the local sports teams. McChesney then said his opponents prime was ten years ago and he would never defend the BCW Title against Tommy Dreamer. Tommy Dreamer came out to the ring and said that is fine and quickly said that he has a stipulation of his own and that this match takes place under ECW RULES!
The Yankee Outlaws (Nick Paradise and ECW Extreme Official HC Loc) defeated Iron Clad (Ron Falco and Frank the Tank Burlington) when they handcuffed Frank the Tank and double teamed him until he couldn’t respond. Ron Falco rightfully protested the decision but both referees involved in the match were dazed from the fast and furious action and attacks by the Yankee Outlaws.
Rik Matrix defeated BCW Tag Team Champions the T-Rex Express when Rik finally got retribution on his career nemesis Troy Buchannan by forcing Troy to tap out. Matrix now hopes he can finally get the one on one match up with Troy Buchannan he’s been desiring for the past six months.
Mean Marcos defeated Krimson with a roll up
Shane Douglas came out and ran down Vince McMahon, Dixie Carter and the city of Buffalo. He claimed that he is from the mecca of the sports universe, Pittsburgh where they know how to finish off Superbowl wins. Thankfully “Buffalo Bad Boy” Brian Jennings came to the ring to prevent a crowd riot and immediately the two went right at it.
Brian Jennings defeated Shane Douglas with a roll up. Through out the match Douglas was screaming at senior BCW referee Drew Carrig and it finally came to a boiling point after Douglas inadvertently poked Drew Carrig in the eye and used a chain on Jennings. Jennings still kicked out and Douglas tried taking his frustrations out on the referee. This momentary diversion allowed Jennings to roll up Douglas for the victory. After the match Douglas tried to attack Drew Carrig but thankfully Jennings prevented that from happening.
IN THE MAIN EVENT
Tommy Dreamer and John McChesney fought all over the arena. Tommy even scored a hockey goal using McChesney’s head as the puck. Eventually it turned back into a wrestling match and not even Waylon from Mushroomhead or Team Big League manager Nicki Rose could prevent Tommy from finally hitting his infamous DDT for the victory after a brutal 25 minute match!
After the match Tommy tried to thank the Buffalo fans for his return to the area for the first time in years but Waylon prevented that. Just as Tommy was about to smash Waylon, KRIMSON hit the ring and attacked Tommy Dreamer! It quickly became four on one with Waylon, Nicki Rose, John McChesney and Krimson attacking Tommy Dreamer. Brian Jennings hit the ring to try and even the odds but they were still too much. John McChesney then called Shane Douglas out to finish them off. Shane Douglas came out with a steel chair but out of nowhere attacked Team Big League! Shane and Tommy then raised the arms of “Buffalo Bad Boy” Brian Jennings and proclaimed him the future of professional wrestling to end the show!
