National Wrestling Superstars Results From Carteret, NJ 2/18: Former WWE/WCW/TNA Stars And Teammates X-Pac & Scott Hall Reunite, Former WWE & WCW Star The Patriot And Gorgeous George Triumph, And More
It was a dark and stormy night… but this is no mystery novel, this was NWS’ annual return to Carteret, NJ’s Divine Mercy/Holy Family Parish Hall on Friday night February 18th, and neither the weather nor the fact that it was a holiday weekend were going to stop the fans from seeing the rumored reunion of two pro wrestling icons, as a much better than expected crowdlined the Parish Hall for a hot night of pro wrestling action.
In the opening contest, “Atomic Dog” Ali defeated Dazzling Divine. The two big men battled all over the ring, and despite Divine’s unusual and unpredictable style, Atomic Dog hit Divine with a series of JYD-style head-butts on all fours, then put down Divine for good with a powerslam for the 1-2-3.
Before the next bout, Steve “Monsta” Mack came out, with former WCW diva Gorgeous George by his side. Mack claimed he had lived in Carteret for years, can’t stand the people, and couldn’t wait to move out, and with Gorgeous George’s managerial brains in his corner he was going to defeat former WWE & WCW & TNA legend X-Pac. Gorgeous George took the microphone and said that she might be his manager, but she actually liked meeting all the Carteret fans. Mack was furious, and after insulting her, ordered her to come back with him to the locker room, sew up a hole in his sweatsocks, and get him ready for the main event.
In a one-on-one bout, local favorite Nick Napoleon battled former NWS Heavyweight Champion “Corrupted” Corey Havoc to a ten-minute time-limit draw. Napoleon surprsingly hung in there against his larger opponent, using his quickness to overcome Havoc’s strength advantage. After rallying with a series of high-flying kicks, Napoleon appeared to have Havoc on the ropes, but he missed a moonsault off the top rope. Havoc hit a crucifix slam on Napoleon, but as the referee started to count the pin, the bell rang indicating the time limit had expired and the match was declared a draw. Havoc shook Napoleon’s hand in what appeared to be a show of good sportsmanship, but then turned around and clotheslined Napoleon and left the ring to boos from the crowd.
“The Warrior” Jack Spade (with his “Thunder Horse” tag-team partner Indian Chief Draven in his corner) defeated “The White Urkel” B. Fehrm. Going into the match, Spade had the size and strength advantage, as well as Draven on the outside getting in his shots wherever possible. Fehrm made a courageous effort, and after hitting a huge superkick on Spade, it looked like he might pull off the upset, but Draven tripped Fehrm up from outside the ropes, and Spade hit a powerbomb and got the 1-2-3.
In an International Tag-Team Match, Team USA (former WWE & WCW star “America’s Hero” The Patriot & Damien Darling, with Carteret Little League’s Coach Angelo in their corner) defeated The Sicilian Mob (T.J. Marconi & Richard Michaels, with “The Don” Don Caruso). The match was a huge brawl inside and outside the ring. Marconi and Michaels double-teamed Darling for several minutes, but could not put him away, and after The Patriot was tagged in he cleaned house on the entire Sicilian Mob. Don Caruso jumped up onto the ring apron with his baseball bat to try and take out Patriot, but he missed and Marconi got knocked out instead, making him easy pickings for a Patriot chokeslam and the 1-2-3.
As Patriot and Darling were celebrating their victory, Don Caruso signaled for his all his buddies to come to the ring (Monsta Mack, J.D. Smoothie, Chris Steeler & Corey Havoc) and gang-attack Patriot and Darling, which they did, until the attack was broken up by “Atomic Dog” Ali and former WWE/WCW/TNA star X-Pac himself. Mack was furious at X-Pac for his interference and promised to finish him off for good in the main event later that night.
In another tag-team attraction, “Mr. Entertainment” J.D. Smoothie & “High Definition” Chris Steeler defeated the team of Corvis Fear & Jumping Joey Janela. Between the high-flying of Smoothie and Janela and the hard-hitting of Steeler and Fear, this was a pitched battle inside and outside the ring. Towards the end, Smoothie and Fear were brawling on the outside and Janela had Steeler on the ropes, then Janela flew off the top rope right into a superkick from Steeler, who covered him for the 1-2-3.
His presence had been rumored on the Internet for days (but not confirmed until that night), former WWE & WCW & TNA legend Scott Hall came out to the ring to introduce his long-time friend, fellow WWE/WCW/TNA alumnus X-Pac.
Former WWE & WCW & TNA star X-Pac (with Scott Hall in his corner) defeated Steve “Monsta” Mack (with former WCW diva Gorgeous George). Mack attacked Hall while he was still in the ring before the bell, drawing the ire of X-Pac immediately, and the fight was on. The match pitted Mack’s strength and brawling skills against X-Pac’s high-flying quickness, as the two battled inside and outside the ring, with Hall and Mack exchanging shots on the outside as well. After squeezing the breath out of X-Pac, Mack appeared to be poised for the upset he had promised, but he missed a flying splash. A rejuvenated X-Pac hit a series of kicks, then planted Mack in the corner for his famed bronco-buster, but as X-Pac came flying into the corner he was met with a boot to the face by Mack. An overjoyed Mack climbed to the top turnbuckle and started bragging to the fans, but he failed to see Scott Hall come into the ring. Hall snuck up behind Mack as he faced the crowd from the top rope, seized him, and planted him into the mat with a thunderous Razor’s Edge to the roar of the crowd. Mack signaled for Gorgeous George to help him, but she had had enough of his treatment, and as Mack got to his feet, George planted her knee in his “nether region”. X-Pac finished off Mack with an X-Factor facebuster, and got the 1-2-3 pin.
The reunited Hall and X-Pac celebrated in the ring, then stayed around to continue meeting the fans, signing autographs, and posing for pictures.
