DUNELLEN — Popular northeast pro wrestling promotion National Pro Wresling Superstars will pay tribute to WWE Hall-of-Fame manager Captain Lou Albano on Saturday, July 16, at 7:35 p.m. They will present the 2011 Captain Lou Albano Memorial J-Cup Tag-Team Tournament at the Dunellen Knights of Columbus Hall, located at 647 Grove Street, just off Washington Avenue and Route 28, in a benefit fundraiser for The Crohns and Colitis Foundation of New Jersey.
Albano managed more than a dozen tag-teams to championship gold while in the WWE, and continuing in that grand tradition, eight tag-teams will compete for the championship trophy and an almost certain shot at the NWS tag-team championship. Those teams are:

- Previous J-Cup Tag-Team winners Team Supreme (Corvis Fear & Nicky Oceans)
- Team Champion (NWS Heavyweight Champion “Rampage” Rogers & NWS Hardcore Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc)
- The New Kids On The Block (Leon & Tim)
- Team Thunder Horse (Indian Chief Draven & “The Warrior” Jack Spade) with their manager Romulus The Great
- The Wise Guys (“Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smooth & Jumping Joey Janela)
- Paco Libro & Jeff “Cannonball” Guerrero
- “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm & Romano Gualano.
In addition to the tournament, there will also be a special appearance by a former WWE Tag-Team Champion and Hall-of-Famer Nikolai Volkoff, and northeast wresting standout Steve “Monsta” Mack.
