TWA HOMECOMIING on Sat June 5th in PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA & TWA TAG-TEAM TITLE TOURNAMENT on Sun June  6TH in VOORHEES, NJ 

WWF/E LEGENDS & 3-TIME WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS, AX & SMASH, DEMOLITION COME TO THE TWA June 5th in Plymouth Meeting, PA and June 6th in Voorhees, NJ... 

While first deemed as "Road Warrior Rip-offs" when they debuted in the WWF in 1987, Ax & Smash, Demolition went on to win 3 WWF Tag Teams Titles, but more importantly they won the respect of the wrestling world and fans as one of the most legendary tandems of the 1980's.  While both performed under different names in the past and achieved great success, it was their stint as Ax & Smash that earned them arguably their greatest fame and notoriety.  Their 1st of 3 WWF Title Reigns (defeating Strike Force of Rick Martel and Tito Santana) lasted a record 16 months.  Their 2nd title win was over The Brain Busters (Tully Blanchard & Arn Anderson) and their 3rd was over Andre the Giant & Haku.  Other classic battles included wars against the Powers of Pain (the Barbarian and the Warlord), the Legion of Doom/the Road Warriors (Hawk & Animal) and six-mans with partner Crush vs. the Legion of Doom/the Road Warriors & the Ultimate Warrior.

Demolition will make their Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) debuts in the Philly-NJ area on June 5th and June 6th.  

On Saturday, June 5th at the Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Meeting, PA, Ax & Smash will meet one of the biggest and most dangerous tag-teams in pro wrestling today, the 848 lbs. Nigerian Nightmares, Maifu & Saifu, with their handler the Voodoo Princess Sheeta!  The Nightmares have been on a tear in the Northeast indie scene as they are undefeated and have left a trail of beaten bodies and broken bones in the wake of their path.  The Nightmares, who are also the 2010 Captain Lou Albano Tag Team Memorial J-Cup Champions (NWS), are made in the mold of savage competitors of the past such as Kamala, the Wild Samoans and the Headhunters; they live to hurt their opponents.  Ax & Smash will have their hands full and will have to rely on their experience and smarts to keep the Nightmares at bay let alone score a win over these 2 behemoths!  

On Sunday, June 6th at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, Demolition will take on one of the hottest teams out of the Mid-South, "Reckage & Romance" Traditional Championship Wrestling (TCW) Heavyweight Champion Jeff Jett and making his TWA return, VH-1 Reality TV Star "Mr. 5.5" Matt Riviera.  June 6th will also feature an 8-team Tag Team Tournament for the TWA Titles, but since Demolition will not be a part of the regular TWA roster, TWA Commissioner Joel Goodhart decided to book the legendary duo in this special Non-Tag Team Tournament Bonus Match.   

Jeff Jett, a 15-year veteran of the ring, recently won the TCW Heavyweight Championship from Tim Storm on April 10th.  He holds wins over former NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Dan Severn, NWA Legend & 1/2 of the Midnight Express, Bobby Eaton, and many others.    

Matt Riviera is a 6-year veteran of the ring, and holds wins over Bobby Eaton, Mike Jackson, Ted Allen, and is a multi-time champion for Pro Wrestling Alliance (PWA), Arkansas Wrestling Entertainment (AWE), TCW, and many other indie promotions.  Riviera was on VH1's Megan Wants a Millionaire and is undefeated in TWA.  Riviera is reported to be worth $5.5 M, as his ring moniker suggests.  

Collectively, Jett & Riviera are former TCW Tag Team Champions.  

Matt Riviera has been talking trash about Ax & Smash of late on the PWI Weekly Podcast at the urging of Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) Magazine Contributing Writer & PWI Weekly Host Brady Hicks.  Hicks has been debating the legendary status of Ax & Smash as he feels that they were overrated, while his co-hosts DJ and Kevin McElvaney, also a PWI Magazine Contributing Writer, have stated the opposite view that Ax & Smash carved out their own legacy and have proved that they deserve their status as one of the legendary teams of the 80's.  As the debate evolved, Riviera, who is close personal friends with Hicks, asked the PWI Weekly host and writer to be in the corner of his team.  Hicks accepted, which has raised curiosity as to exactly what the Riviera camp has planned.
