Vietnam Vets Pro Wrestling Benefit This Saturday

KENILWORTH — Former WWE Intercontinental Champion The Honky-Tonk Man (the greatest of all time, if you ask him), plus former ECW and WWE tag-team champion and current TNA star D-Von Dudley, from the famous Dudley Boyz tag-team, will headline an all-star card of pro wrestling this coming Saturday night May 14 at 7:35 p.m., as popular northeast promotion National Pro Wrestling Superstars returns to the Union County area at the Kenilworth Veterans Center (33 South 21st Street, just off The Boulevard, minutes from The Parkway) for a benefit show for the Kenilworth Vietnam Veterans.

And generating just as much buzz among the local fans as these two TV legends, are two local pro mat stars who are former friends and now sworn enemies, Kenilworth’s “Tough” Tony Scorace and Union’s Steve “The Gipper” Gipke. These two have had a major falling out (and that’s an understatement) and have been tearing each other apart for months (along with a good deal of ringside property). NWS management has decided that the only way to keep this fight in the ring long enough to be settled is to surround the ring with other wrestlers to keep them from spilling outside, which means that the fans will be treated to Kenilworth’s first ever Lumberjack Match.

Other local stars will be competing in a big six-man high-flier showdown, as the NWS Tag-Team Champions, Union’s own Jersey Shore Jocks (Mike Dennis & Chris D’Andrea) team up with rising phenomenon The Jersey Kidd against two more area residents and arch rivals “Too Hot” Steve Scott & Nick Talent and their partner the NWS Cruiserweight Champion Spyral. And in more local action, Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero battles Snake-Eyez, with the popular “Hillbilly” Justin Blackwell as guest referee, plus appearances by international star Danny Inferno, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie, Ryan Angus, and much more!

  • Kenilworth Diner, 614 Boulevard
  • Dollar Center Plus, Boulevard (corner Michigan Avenue, next to Dunkin Donuts)


  • Proud Papa’s Pizza & Deli, 470 Chestnut Street
