DUNELLEN — All-star pro wrestling returns to the Dunellen area on Saturday night, July 16, at 7:35pm, as National Pro Wrestling Superstars returns to the Dunellen Knights of Columbus Hall (647 Grove Street, just off Washington Avenue & Route 28), as they team up with The Crohns and Colitis Foundation of New Jersey to present the 2011 Captain Lou Albano Memorial J-Cup Tag-Team Tournament.
The late Captain Lou, a WWE Hall-of-Fame manager and movie star, was a good friend to NWS and made many colorful appearances with them in the last years of his life. As Lou’s biggest claim to fame in the WWE was managing championship tag-teams, NWS has decided to rename one of the biggest tag-team events in pro wrestling, the annual J-Cup Tag-Team Tournament, in his honor.
Eight of the best tag-teams on the circuit today will compete in a one-night single elimination tournament, with the winning team getting the coveted trophy, bragging rights, and being in line for a tag-team title shot. This year’s field includes the NWS Tag-Team Champions The Jersey Shore Jocks, previous winners Team Supreme, and other great pairings. There will also be a special appearance by another WWE Hall-of-Fame alumnus, and a former tag-team champion himself, the great Nikolai Volkoff.
Tickets are a great summer bargain at only $19 for adults and $17 for kids and seniors, and are available at the following local outlets:
- Brown’s Stationary, 111 North Washington Avenue
- In & Out Convenience Store, 187 North Avenue (Route 28 in the Station Plaza)
- Knights Of Columbus Hall, 647 Grove Street (see bar-keep when Knights are open)
- Quick Stop Convenience Store, 518 Route 28
Tickets are also available by calling the NWS box office at 1-732-888-1704. All major charge cards are accepted, and group rates are available for groups of ten or more.
