Lake Papaianni Park, Edison, NJ
September 8, 2012
Pro Wrestling Superstars made their annual appearance at Edison, NJ's
annual Fall Spectacular at Lake Papaianni Park on Saturday September
8th, hosting two free shows for the festival.
the first show in the afternoon, the threatened thunderstorms held off,
and throngs of fans surrounded the ring to cheer on their favorites.
the first match, The Soul Assassin, accompanied by "The Love
Machine" Nicky Oceans, took on Edison High School wrestler-turned-pro
Eddie "Spaghetti" Franken. Eddie fought hard, and towards the end was
on the top rope ready to finish off Assassin with a Spaghetti
Neckbreaker. But then Nicky Oceans leaped onto the ring apron to
distract the referee, and Soul Assassin took Oceans' title belt and
knocked Eddie off the top rope and onto the mat, then covered him as
the referee turned around and counted 1-2-3.
Winner: The Soul
the second match, the tag-team of NPWS Jersey Shore Champion "The Love
Machine" Nicky Oceans & former ECW star "Dastardly" Danny
accompanied by NPWS newcomer Maximus Love Power, took on the duo of
"Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx & Jeff "Cannonball" Guerrero. Early
efforts to out-power the big Cannonball
were unsuccessful, so Oceans & Doring isolated Roxx in their
corner. Roxx survived the onslaught, and after Oceans missed a splash,
tagged in Guerrero who cleaned house on both men and squashed Doring in
the corner with a Cannonball Roll. But Oceans came back and leveled
Cannonball with a facebuster, and Doring hit him with a flying leg drop
and pinned him 1-2-3.
Winners: "The Love
Machine" Nicky Oceans &"Dastardly" Danny Doring
- The third match was a non-title
match as NPWS Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie
took on his Delaware rival "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm. Smoothie
dominated the match early, but Fehrm being a former cruiserweight title
holder himself, battled back and took down Smoothie with a superkick.
But as he went for his Nerd Cutter finisher, Smoothie blocked it and
planted Fehrm into the mat with a backwards piledriver and got the

main event of the first show saw newcomer Maximum Love Power,
accompanied by "Dastardly" Danny Doring as he made his in-ring debut
for NPWS, take on former WWE star and Intercontinental Champion The
Honky-Tonk Man. Love Power asserted his muscle power early, but the
wily veteran battled back as the two went back and forth. Towards the
end, Love Power missed a splash in the corner, and Honky-Tonk pounded
him in the corner and set him up for his "Shake, Rattle & Roll"
finisher, when Danny Doring leaped into the ring and attacked
Honky-Tonk, prompting the referee to call for the bell. Honky-Tonk was
able to hold off Doring and Love Power, but then their friends J.D.
Smoothie and Nicky Oceans joined in on the attack. The odds were soon
evened up as Cannonball, B. Fehrm, Eddie Franken, and Rikki Roxx
charged the ring and scattered Doring and Love Power and their cohorts.
The referee declared the match a double-disqualification.
Winners: None (double
the match, a furious Honky-Tonk Man seized the microphone and
challenged Doring to meet him in the ring one-on-one at the second
show. NPWS made the match as the main event for the evening show.
the break between shows, Honky-Tonk Man posed for pictures in the ring
with the fans. The threatened rain and wind storm showed up, driving
most of the Festival attendees away. NPWS management, never willing to
let themselves be driven out of town by anyone, not even Mother Nature,
battened down the hatches and waited out the storm. The heavy rains let
up in time to prepare for the second show, although it did rain on and
off during the show, and a small but hardy and energetic group of fans
surrounded the ring (whom NPWS acknowledged had also been motivated to
stay around for the scheduled musical appearance at the Festival of
former Monkees singer Mickey Dolenz). The weather was so bad that even
the Festival's annual fireworks show was cancelled, but NPWS put on
plenty of fireworks of their own.
- In the first match of the evening show, The Soul Assassin,
accompanied by Nicky Oceans,
took on "Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx. Roxx and The Assassin battled inside
and outside the ring, with Roxx dominating early, but the Assassin,
with some outside shots from Oceans, took over later in the match. But
Roxx battled back, took down The Assassin with a Headbanger's Ball DDT,
and was primed to deliver a Crisis Kick, when Oceans jumped into the
ring and leveled Roxx with his title belt. But this time the referee
was not distracted and saw the interference and called for the bell,
disqualifying The Assassin.
disqualification): "Retro Rocker" Rikki Roxx
second match of the evening was another non-title match for NPWS
Cruiserweight Champion "Mr. Entertainment" J.D. Smoothie, as he took
High School wrestler-turned-pro Eddie "Spaghetti" Franken. Eddie's
quickness befuddled Smoothie early, but the veteran Smoothie eventually
took over. The two went back and forth inside the ring, and even
outside the ring where Smoothie whacked Eddie with a Wet Floor sign.
Smoothie threw Eddie back into the ring and covered him, but could only
get a two-count. Frustrated, he began shoving veteran NPWS referee
Kenny Edwards (referee'ing his first matches for NPWS that day after a
long absence), who had no intention of taking that from Smoothie and
shoved him right back. This gave Eddie enough time to recover and hit
the stunned Smoothie with a flying Spaghetti Neckbreaker, and covered
Smoothie as Referee Edwards happily counted a speedy 1-2-3.
third match of the evening was a tag-team match as NPWS Jersey Shore
Champion "The Love Machine" Nicky Oceans & Maximum Love Power
on the duo of "The White Urkel" B. Fehrm & Jeff "Cannonball"
Guerrero. The veteran Oceans dominated Fehrm easily enough, but neither
he nor Love Power could handle the muscle power of Cannonball, so
Oceans broke the momentum by spilling water bottles onto the already
wet ring mat, and challenged the other wrestlers to a "Slip And Slide"
contest. Oceans and Love Power used the distraction to toss Cannonball
out of the ring and double-team Fehrm. But Fehrm held on, and after
both he and Oceans took each other out with flying cross-bodies on each
other, Fehrm was able to tag in Cannonball, who cleaned house on both
opponents and took down Oceans with a shoulder-breaker. Fehrm then
flattened Love Power in the corner with a leapfrog splash, and
Cannonball finished him off with a Cannonball Roll as they both covered
Love Power for the 1-2-3.
Winners: "The White
Urkel" B. Fehrm & Jeff "Cannonball" Guerrero
main event of the evening was the grudge match made at the end of the
afternoon show, as former
ECW star "Dastardly" Danny Doring took on former WWE star The
Honky-Tonk Man. The two traded holds and tried to twist each other's
arms off, until a frustrated Doring took off his wrist tape and tried
to choke out Honky-Tonk, cleverly hiding the tape from the referee. But
Honky-Tonk withstood the choking, and eventually seized Doring's tape
and did the same thing to Doring. The two continued to trade punches
and kicks in the corner, until Doring head-butted Honky-Tonk in his
"nether regions" and tried to pin him with his feet on the ropes. But
the referee saw it, and while Doring was complaining, Honky-Tonk rolled
him up with a handful of tights and got the 1-2-3.
