Friday night July 13th, NPWS made its first ever appearance at Ocean Township, NJ's I.C.A.T. Martial Arts Center for a "Bad Luck Brawl". It was a small venue, drawing a small but energetic Friday night summer crowd who was eager to see NPWS back in action.
Before the show, the fans got autographs and pictures from TNA/Impact Wrestling star "Jersey Shore" Robbie E., the living tribute to the late WCW star Mortiss, Mor-Ta-Da, and a special guest, former World Welterweight Boxing Champion Simon Brown.
The opening contest NPWS Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D.
Smoothie defend his title against newcomer "The Salsa King" Dionet
Vaton. Vaton gave Smoothie all he could handle, but the veteran
Smoothie had too many tricks up his sleeve, and after ducking a
roundhouse right, Smoothie rolled up Vaton with a schoolboy and a
handful of tights and got the 1-2-3.
Winner and still NPWS Cruiserweight Champion: "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie
second bout was a tag-team contest, as the duo of big men Smith James
"Mr. Varsity" Jeff Noyze, managed by Danny Demanto, took on the duo
calling themselves Fit & Fluffy, Dylan Dollarz & Alan
managed by Alex "The Bear" Pinnix. Despite the size and experience
of Smith and Noyze, Dollarz and Price kept pace with them and the match
was back and forth. In the end, Smith and Dollarz were brawling on the
outside, and Demanto jumped into the ring and he and Noyze
double-teamed Price, allowing Noyze to get the easy pin.
Winners: Smith James & "Mr. Varsity" Jeff Noyze
After the match, Dollarz called Noyze a coward for needing help to win, and challenged him to a one-on-one match when NPWS returns to nearby Long Branch in October. Noyze accepted.
The third match was a battle
of high-flying rising stars, as Chris "Boom Boom" Powers took on Eddie
"Spaghetti" Franken. The two youngsters put on a fast-moving bout, with
neither getting the advantage. Towards the end, Eddie began to
dominate, and took down Chris with his flying neckbreaker, but before
the referee could count all the way to three, the bell sounded
indicating the time limit had expired.
Winner: None (time-limit draw)
The fourth match was a six-man tag-team attraction, as
NPWS Hardcore Champion "Corrupted" Corey Havoc & "The Final
Freebird" Damian Darling & "The Cold-Hearted Playa" Danny
managed by Jeff Noyze, took on "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm &
Rocker" Rikki Roxx & Merrill "The Prodigy" Richardson, who were
managed by Alex "The Bear" Pinnix and returning NPWS star and former
champion J.L. Superstar. Demanto immediately protested that the referee
for the match was none other than Merrill's own sister Nikki
Richardson, but Commissioner Johnny Falco said that was just the luck
of the draw. The match finally began, and Fehrm & Roxx
Merrill held their own against their bigger and more experienced
opponents, who got frustrated that they could not pin their opponents.
Towards the end, after Fehrm kicked out of a Crucifix Slam and pin
attempt by Havoc, Demanto took out his frustrations on referee Nikki
and powerbombed her into the mat, and his teammates and Noyze started
beating down Fehrm and Roxx and Merrill. Alex Pinnix jumped into the
ring and went after Noyze, but Noyze took him down. Then boxer Simon
Brown, a close friend of Pinnix, jumped into the ring and went straight
after Noyze, using his quickness to duck Noyze's punches and his
still-powerful right hand to knock Noyze down and out. J.L. Superstar
jumped into the ring and went straight after Havoc, and leveled him as
well. Noyze and his cohorts retreated to the outside as the NPWS
officials threw out the match.
Winners: None (double disqualification)
After the match, Demanto seized the microphone and vented his anger at both Merrill and Nikki Richardson, and challenged the two of them to an inter-gender tag-team match in Long Branch in October, promising to recruit one of the leading ladies from NPWS' sister all-ladies promotion WSU as his partner. Alex Pinnix and J.L. Superstar promised to be in Long Branch as well to dish out some payback of their own.
During intermission, the fans posed for pictures in the ring with TNA/Impact Wrestling star "Jersey Shore" Robbie E., and NPWS celebrated some fan birthdays.
fifth match was the first of the two main event matches, and was for
the undisputed NPWS Six-Man Tag-Team Championship. In one corner was a
trio of tributes to former WWE & WCW stars, the Famous
Wrestling Clown, the dancing Goal-Duh, and the
living tribute to the late WCW star Mortiss, Mor-Ta-Da. In the other
corner were the 1000-pound destructive trio known as The Nigerian
Nightmares (La-Fu & Ba-Bu & Ah-Chu). The match was a
forth affair with neither team giving ground. The Nightmares were able
to triple-team Mor-Ta-Da for a short time, but he fought his way out,
and Goal-Duh and The Clown worked over the biggest Nightmare La-Fu, but
could not put him away. Mor-Ta-Da then took matters into his own hands
and blasted La-Fu in the face with a handful of powder, then hit a
flying missile dropkick and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners and undisputed NPWS Six-Man Tag-Team Champions: The Famous Wrestling Clown & Goal-Duh & Mor-Ta-Da
The NPWS Commissioner announced there would be a rematch between the two teams the next night in Island Heights.
sixth and final match of the evening was the other half of the main
event, and a rematch from the afternoon show for "Jersey Shore Pride"
between current NPWS Jersey Shore and Junior Heavyweight Champion
"Jersey Shore Jock" Mike Dennis, "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans, and
TNA/Impact Wrestling TV star "Jersey Shore" Robbie E. Before the match,
Dennis and Oceans challenged Robbie to a dance-off, and from the
audience reaction, Robbie dominated, and ended his dance set by decking
both Oceans and Dennis. The match was on, and despite Oceans
and Dennis once again attempting to double-team and take out Robbie,
once again they could
not agree on who would pin him, and their partnership eventually broke
down into a shoving match. Oceans seized Robbie and held him for Dennis
to deliver a running drop-kick, but Robbie ducked out at the last
minute and Dennis nailed Oceans instead. Robbie took advantage and hit
The Shore Thing on Dennis and got the
Winner: "Jersey Shore" Robbie E.
