On Friday, September 14, the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance makes its triumphant, annual return to Millvale Days. The free event is one of the biggest wrestling events of the late summer/early fall, and the Megastars are always ready for a throw-down.
The Krazies love Jay Flash, and the feeling is certainly mutual for the South Beach Soldier. Flash gets a shot at “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin’s KSWA World Heavyweight Championship. Martin has done a good job avoiding the surging Flash, who hasn’t tasted defeat in several months. Martin is as confident as ever, as long as he continues to travel with his trusty wooden baseball bat as well as VIP co-founder Shawn Blanchard.
Blanchard, “The Enforcer” will take on “The King” Del Douglas. The winner of this match will be the new Number One Contender for the KSWA’s second-most-prized single’s title: The Golden Triangle belt. This is a unique match because Blanchard and Douglas are long-time co-horts who know what each other is thinking at all times. Plus, Douglas returns “home” to his 10-bedroom palatial estate, high above town. “The King” always has something special planned for his minions. At least that’s what he says.
The Golden Triangle Championship is on the line as champion The Blood Beast defends against Shane Starr. In recent months, Starr has turned his aggressiveness up a notch and the championship committee has taken notice. Starr has battled the Legion of the Apocalypse hard lately, and tomorrow will be no exception as “The Future” battles the most powerful wrestler the Legion as to offer.
Millvale’s other favorite son, The Jester, faces off against Ric Rumsky in one-on-one competition. The Jester, who usually dodges the brassieres of adoring females in Millvale, has threatened to kick the head off of Rumsky, who is more likely to do the job himself with a super kick. Both wrestlers are well-matched in all of the important categories, but Rumsky has been raising eyebrows of the championship committee in the single’s ranks, while The Jester has proven himself to be one of the best young tag team wrestlers in the organization. This should be a pivotal match for both Megastar’s careers.
The Windy City Bruiser, Bobby Badfingers, will take on the champion of Red Headed Stepchildren Everywhere, Super Ginger. Badfingers is almost always all power, while Ginger keeps his opponents on their toes with dancing prowess. This will be a clash of styles, but one to keep your eye on nevertheless.
“The Ice Man” Tony Johnson hopes to level the playing field with “The Instigator” J-Ru, who won their previous mano-e-mano showdown. The brash and arrogant J-Ru will try and stay one step ahead of the cool-as-ice Johnson. Their last match was impressive. It will be interesting to see what the next chapter of this feud holds.
And the KSWA Tag Team Championship is on the line when defending champions—Party Gras—take on “Nasty” Nick Crane and Sniper. Lord Zoltan and Justin Sane have been on a role as the KSWA’s premier tag team for more than a year, but that momentum can stop at any time with the Mercenaries. In fact, Crane and Sniper have been the only wrestlers capable of slowing down one of the greatest tag teams in KSWA’s glorious history. Might Millvale be the end of the line for Party Gras, or does the dancing duo have more steps in their repertoire?
Millvale Days is Friday, September 14. Bell time is at 6:30 p.m. This is a free event located near the Subway restaurant at 124 Avenue in Millvale (this is a new location on Millvale’s main drag). Card is subject to change.
