Results From Last Weekend
Another spectacular start to another weekend of pro wrestling as National Pro Wrestling Superstars converged on the Kenilworth, NJ Veterans Center this past Friday night, May 18th and the packed house were in awe of the action they saw both in and out of the ring.
Dapper Johnny Falco opened the show and then introduced his co-host for the evening Destiny (looking as hot as ever).
The opening contest saw Mr. Nick Gregory defeat Snake Eyez and luchador Manuel Manny Moore in a handicap match.
Ryan Angus (managed by Big Jeff Noyze) defeated FWF Cruiserweight Champion "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm in a non-title contest. Afterwards, he started picking on his younger brother Kyle and a match between the two cannot be far off.
Match #3 was a Six-Person Tag-Team Explosion as Chris "Boom Boom" Powers & Lonesome Dove & Alex El Tooney defeated The Wasp & The Wrestling Matt & The Soul Assassin.
Match #4 was a first time ever "Loser Shaves His Beard Match" pitting Big Jeff Noyze against "Happy Hillbilly" Justin Blackwell. After a ref bump and unexpected outside interference, it looked like Noyze had the bout won, but the Happy Hillbilly managed to pin Noyze who now sports a clean face.
Match #5 was a return title bout as NPWS Junior Heavyweight & Jersey Shore Champion "Jersey Shore Jock" Mike Dennis defend the titles against former champion "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans. The match saw Oceans and Dennis put on a 15 minute time-limit barn-burner that had the fans yelling and cheering. After the bout, Oceans, who learned that Mike Dennis would be wrestling Matt Hardy in October, cashed in one of his two Money In the Bank Match wins to make the bout a three-way dance.
In a tag-team grudge match, "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie & "Too Hot" Steve Scott went to a no contest with Tuff Tony Scorace & Steve "The Gipper" Gipke. During the match, Smoothie dove off the balcony of the Veterans Center and stunned the crowd.
In the main event, former WWE star Rikishi defeated "The Cold-Hearted Playa" Danny Demanto with a Stinkface.
National Pro Wrestling Superstars concluded their double-shot weekend on Saturday night May 19th with their first ever appearance at Spotswood, NJ's Immaculate Conception Church Gym. A great Saturday night crowd came out and filled the entire ringside area and spilled over onto the bleachers.
Before the show, former WWE star Rikishi signed autographs and posed for pictures with the fans.
The opening contest pitted "Too Hot" Steve Scott against everyone's favorite lunatic from the Jersey Shore, Slayer. After a hard-fought match, Slayer's unpredictable style got the better of Steve in the end, as Slayer ducked out of an Avalanche attempt by Steve, then hit him with a flying body press and got the 1-2-3.
The second match had former NPWS Junior Heavyweight Champion "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans, who was accompanied to the ring by his personal entourage of Danny Demanto & Monsta Mack, taking on The World Famous Wrestling Clown, who was accompanied by special guest manager from the Immaculate Conception School, Coach "Underdog" Vin Vinny. The Clown and his unorthodox style befuddled Nicky early on, but with help from distractions from Demanto and Mack on the outside, Nicky took over and dominated The Clown. After Nicky missed a Moonsault, The Clown roared back, and after hitting a Whoopee Cushion on Nicky looked to have the match in hand. But Demanto attacked Coach Vin on the outside, distracting the referee enough for Mack to sneak into the ring and level The Clown with a low blow and a shot to the head. Nicky then hit his Boom-Boom-Pow finisher on The Clown and covered him for the 1-2-3.
Winner: "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans
The third match was a tag-team affair, as The Lords Of Rock And Roll (Former NPWS Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd & "Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx), with manager Kristi Kiss in their corner, against the duo of Q.T. Marshall & Johnny Knockout, who had Danny Demanto & Monsta Mack in their corner. The Kidd and Rikki dominated early on, but after Rikki got tripped up by outside interference, Q.T. and Johnny took over on Rikki, with help from some cheap shots by Danny and Mack on the outside. But Rikki endured and eventually tagged in The Kidd who cleaned house on both wrestlers and looked to have the match in hand. But as in the previous match, Danny and Mack menaced Kristi Kiss on the outside, distracting The Kidd long enough for Johnny to hit a bulldog DDT on The Kidd and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: Q.T. Marshall & Johnny Knockout
After the match was over, Danny and Mack joined Q.T. and Johnny in continuing the attack on Rikki and The Kidd, and even dragged Kristi into the ring and threatened to hurt her, until Coach Vin Vinny brought out The World Famous Wrestling Clown and former WWE star Rikishi to help. The attackers retreated to the outside, and the acting NPWS Commissioner asked Rikishi, who was scheduled to face Monsta Mack one-on-one in the main event, if he instead would like to team up with The Clown in the main event and help get payback on both Danny and Mack. Rikishi agreed and the main event match was set.
During intermission, Rikishi and The Clown posed for pictures in the ring with the fans.
The fourth match pitted former NPWS Tag-Team Champion "The Final Freebird" Damian Darling against Spotswood native Kyle Winette. Kyle surprised the veteran Damian by keeping pace with him early on, and survived a flurry of offense from Damian. In the end, Damian went for a superplex, but Kyle shoved him off and hit a flying head butt on Damian and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winner: Kyle Winette
The fifth match was a Three-On-Two Handicap Tag-Team Match, as NPWS Tag-Team and Hardcore Champion "Corrupted" Corey Havoc & NPWS Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie took on the trio of "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm & Eddie "Spaghetti" Franken& Chrissy "Boom Boom" Powers. The three youngsters were an even match for the two veteran opponents, and the match went back and forth, until Corey blocked a Nerd Cutter attempt from Fehrm and planted him into the mat with a T-Bone Suplex, and Smoothie finished him off with a flying Leg Drop Across The Delaware for the 1-2-3 pin.
Winners: "Corrupted" Corey Havoc & "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie
The Main Event was the tag-team match signed just before intermission, pitting "The Cold-Hearted Playa" Danny Demanto& Steve "Monsta" Mack, with Q.T. Marshall & Johnny Knockout in their corner, against former WWE star Rikishi & The World Famous Wrestling Clown, who were managed by Coach Vin Vinny. Before the match could start, NPWS Commissioner Al LiCata, who had arrived late due to traffic problems but had been briefed on the entire evening's events, ran to ringside and announced that he was not going to put up with any more outside interference, and ordered Q.T. and Johnny back to the locker room. The match finally began, and Rikishi initially out-powered both Danny and Mack. The Clown tagged in and once again befuddled his opponents with his unpredictable style, but Danny and Mack were able to trap him in their corner and double-team him. Demanto went for a Moonsault to finish him off, but Coach Vin got some payback of his own by grabbing and shaking the ropes, causing Demanto to lose his balance and spike himself on the top turnbuckle. The Clown took advantage and tagged in Rikishi, who cleaned house on both opponents. Rikishi leveled Mack with a superkick, threw Demanto into the corner, then (just as the night before) loosened his tights and planted a Stinkface on Demanto to the delight of the crowd. Rikishi then hit a Vertical Splash on Mack and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: Rikishi & The World Famous Wrestling Clown
After the match, both The Clown and Coach Vinny also planted Stinkface's on Danny, then Rikishi took the mic and said he could think of no better farewell to the Spotswood fans than to give them some dancing, and he and The Clown and Coach Vinny danced in the center of the ring to his music as the show closed.

Friday night June 1st, NPWS returns to Stirling, NJ's Long Hill Township Community Center (264 South Warren Avenue, just off Valley Road, minutes from I-78) with a 7:45pm bell time
And after all the great shows at Stirling over the years, this one might just top them all, as making his first ever live area appearance for NPWS will be none other than the high-flying former WWE and TNA/Impact TV superstar, Matt Hardy himself. This aerial superstar has been thrilling men and women of all ages (especially the women) wherever he goes, so this is one event you do not want to miss!
But Matt Hardy will be far from the only soaring star that night. NPWS Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie will defend his title that night in a return grudge match against local challenger "All-Star" Austin Williams.

There will also be appearances by NPWS Junior Heavyweight Champion "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans and NPWS Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd, Justin Cage, "Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx, and much more, including special guests Mayor Emeritus The Honorable Al LiCata and Long Hill P.B.A. Officer Gary Bauer.

Saturday night June 2nd, NPWS returns to the southern Ocean County area with their first ever show at the Barnegat, NJ High School Gym (180 Bengal Boulevard, just off Barnegat Boulevard, minutes from Route 9 and the Parkway), with a 7:35pm bell time
NPWS has not been to southern Ocean County in over a year, but the fans will be getting more than their money's worth after the long wait, as making his first ever live area appearance for NPWS will be none other than the high-flying former WWE and TNA/Impact TV superstar, Matt Hardy himself. This aerial superstar has been thrilling men and women of all ages (especially the women) wherever he goes, so this is one event you do not want to miss!
And speaking of "first-ever's", this women's wrestling superstar coming to Barnegat was part of the first ever WrestleMania, and was a former WWE Women's Wrestling and Tag-Team Champion... the legendary Lailani Kai.
Also making his first appearance for NPWS after a long absence is the one-time ECW hardcore star and Barnegat native The Equalizer, who will seemingly pick up right where he left off as he will be part of a Hardcore Tag-Team showdown with partner and area star The Green Dragon against NPWS Tag-Team Champions The 2 Rude Dudes, "Rampage" Rogers& NPWS Hardcore Champion "Corrupted" Corey Havoc. Equalizer has made it clear that he wants to get his hands on the NPWS Hardcore Title belt, so he will be looking to make an impact on the champion that night.
And in another battle with championships involved, NPWS Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie will take on NPWS Jersey Shore Champion The Jersey Kidd, with both belts potentially hanging in the balance. There will also be appearances by NPWS Heavyweight Champion Ray Ray Marz, "The Cold-Hearted Playa" Danny Demanto, Justin Cage, "The Bounty Hunter" Johnny Ringo, Nick Fury, Steve Stasiak, Big Poppa Pete, and much more!
