The Sayreville War Memorial High School bore witness to the first show from the National Wrestling Superstars (formerly two thirds of the NWA-Jersey) on a benefit show to raise money for the Sayreville H.S. Bomber Cheerleaders and the Sayreville Wrestling Association Parents Group.
At the beginning of the night, there was a 10 count for Ted Petty (Rocco Rock) of Public Enemy who passed away on his way to a match last weekend.
Dave Mysterio, the last NWA-Jersey Junior Heavyweight Champion announced that the NWA-Jersey is dead, and so is Dave Mysterio. Ditching the name, Dave is now Dave Webb. It is also ruled that because Dave was such a dominating champion, he would be in the final playoff against the winner of the Crazy 8's match for the NWS Junior Heavyweight title.
(1) Mike Kruel defeated Slayer, The Icon, Tommy Force, The Great Blazini, Tony Flow, Arcadia, and Brian Sexton to win the Crazy 8's match. This was done King of the Hill style with the ring playing the part of the hill, and each combatant tries to "Take over" the ring.
(2) Mike Kruel defeated Dave Webb by submission to win the NWS Junior Heavyweight Title.
(3) TNT battled to a double DQ with The Heavy Metal Maniac with guest referee, Hashim Ali. The heels including Ali, Maniac and Dapper beat on TNT until the other refs made the save.
(4) The Patriot beat Kevin Knight (w/Roman) in a pretty decant bout. Kevin plays a great heel and nothing pops the crowd like the promise of free headwear. Excellent reaction from the younger fans.
(5) Slyk Wagner Brown & April Hunter defeated Julio Dinero & Miss Kara in a mixed tag. I would LOVE to see April against someone who can work. Kara is a cutie, but is not known primarily for her ring work. April's outside interference is more innovative and entertaining than most woman wrestler's entire repertoire.
(6) Roman defeated Frank The Addiction Kuhl in a battle billed as the MTV-Tough Enough Challenge. Both men were hopefuls for TE2 but did not participate in the filming.
Good match, Both men were on game and with their similar style, ability and experience, it was a good bout. The Wall (Malice) came in about half way and chokeslammed Disco. The Ref was next, with Simon celebrating with his newfound friend, Malice then chokeslammed Simon and left. To the promotions credit, the bout didn't end with the "Dusty Finish" screwjob, but rather went about another five minute, ending with a Disco pinfall on Simon.
Next show: Long Branch, N.J. on October 26... with Mike Kruel vs Dave Webb- NWS Junior Heavyweight title match.
