FWF "Stirling Sideburns ShownDown"
Long Hill Township Community Center, Stirling, NJ
June 22, 2013


Funkdafied Wrestling Federation concluded a double-show weekend with a return to Stirling, NJ's Long Hill Township Community Center on Saturday night June 22nd. The crowd was disappointingly light, but those who came out saw (and those who didn't certainly missed) some great FWF action.

Before the show, the fans took pictures and signed autographs with former WWE legend and "The Greatest Intercontinental Champion Of All Time" The Honky-Tonk Man.

ABC and FIOS-1 TV Anchor Wendy Gilette was introduced as the Guest Ring Announcer.

The opening contest was a triple-threat match between Kyle "The Beast" Winant, Kevin Krush, and Justin Cage. After a furious battle, Krush threw The Beast out of the ring, but then walked right into a superkick from Justin Cage who pinned him for the victory.

In the second match, FWF Tag-Team Champions The Two Rude Dudes ("Corrupted" Corey Havoc & "Rampage" Rogers) defended their titles against Jeff "Cannonball" Guerrero & Chris "Boom Boom" Powers. Powers survived several minutes of double-teaming by the Dudes before tagging in Cannonball, who used his power to clean house and flatten Rampage in the corner with a Cannonball Roll and nearly got a three-count. Havoc tossed Powers out of the ring and distracted the referee, while Rampage picked up the Dudes' megaphone and attempted to clock Cannonball with it. Cannonball ducked the shot and seized the microphone. Rampage then did the very dastardly trick of falling down to the mat like he had been hit with the megaphone. The referee turned around and saw Rampage laying on the mat and Cannonball holding the megaphone, and assumed that he had hit Rampage with it, and called for the bell, awarding the victory to the Dudes by disqualification.

In the third match, a Union grudge match, "Too Hot" Steve Scott took on Steve "The Gipper" Gipke. After battling inside and outside the ring, Gipke went to the top rope for a flying splash, but Scott knocked the referee into the ropes, causing Gipke to spike himself, and Scott rolled Gipke off the ropes and into a pin.

In the fourth match, FWF Heavyweight Champion The Atomic Dog took on "The Warrior" Jack Spade & "Stylin'" Brandon Kirk in a One-On-Two Handicap Match. Despite a determined double-teaming effort from Spade and Kirk, Dog took down Kirk with a face-first suplex, then overpowered Spade and pinned him with an F-5.

As intermission began, former WWE legend The Honky Tonk Man returned to the venue, driving the original "General Lee" car (from "The Dukes Of Hazzard"), with a pair of "Daisy Duke Girls" Venym and Devyn. His return was spoiled by the appearance of pro wrestling's other tribute to Elvis, former ECW star Bilvis Wesley, who was scheduled to meet Honky-Tonk Man in the main event later that night. Wesley challeneged Honky-Tonk to have their match right now, but when he actually took off his jacket and jumped into the ring, Wesley retreated to the outside and left the ringside area.

During intermission, the fans posed for more pictures with The Honky Tonk Man and the Daisy Duke Girls, and the other stars of FWF.

The fifth match was a triple-threat no-holds-barred match for the FWF Cruiserweight Title, as current champion Fast Eddie took on former champions "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie and "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm. After taking out Eddie with a steel chair early on, Smoothie brought a ladder into the match and repeatedly pummeled Fehrm onto it, but could not hold him down for the three-count. Towards the end, Eddie took down Fehrm with a Spaghetti Neckbreaker right onto the ladder. Eddie returned to the ring and pummeled Fehrm with the ladder some more, but still could not pin him. Smoothie pulled Eddie to the outside and smashed his head into the ring post and returned to the ring. Smoothie tried a moonsault on Fehrm from the top of the ladder, but Fehrm blocked it with his knees and superkicked Smoothie and pummeled him with the ladder, but could not pin him. Smoothie stopped Fehrm's momentum with a bulldog onto the ladder, but Eddie returned to the ring to stop Smoothie. The three battled on. Fehrm went for a Swanton on Eddie when he was laying on the ladder, but Eddie moved out of the way and Fehrm struck the ladder shoulder-first. Eddie took down Fehrm with a Spaghetti Neckbreaker onto the ladder. Smoothie tossed out Fehrm and lifted the weakened Eddie onto the turnbuckle for a superplex attempt, but Eddie reversed it into a Tornado DDT onto a steel chair, and pinned Smoothie to retain his title.

In the sixth match, the nearly 800-pound duo of Lucifer Darkside & Bladefellow took on "Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx & Mel Sanchez. Despite a heroic effort by the much out-sized Roxx and Sanchez, Darkside & Bladefellow prevailed, as Bladefellow tossed Roxx out of the ring and Darkside hit an impressive moonsault from the top rope onto Sanchez, flattening him for an easy three-count.

In the Main Event, which was being called a "Sideburns Showdown", former ECW star Bilvis Wesley took on former WWE legend and "The Greatest Intercontinental Champion Of All Time" The Honky-Tonk Man, accompanied by Daisy Duke Girls Venym & Denym. (The first ever meeting between pro wrestling's two Elvis tributes.) Wesley jumped Honky-Tonk before the bell, trying to get the early advantage. The two battled inside and outside the ring. Wesley, frustrated that he could not take down Honky-Tonk, went after Venym who had been taunting him all night. Honky-Tonk took advantage of Wesley being distracted, and rolled him up from behind and got the three-count and victory.

After the match, Honky-Tonk celebrated with Venym and Denym, but as each one hugged him, it became apparent that each girl wanted the lion's share of Honky-Tonk's attention. This lead to some shoving between Denym and Venym, and the two ladies began brawling. FWF owner J.D. Smoothie and Commissioner Al LiCata called for security to break it up, and told the two ladies there would be no fighting tonight, but offered them a match at FWF's next show in Stirling in late October. The two ladies agreed, and the match was signed as the show closed.
