Every year the KSWA Megastars cannot wait to participate in the “King of Millvale Battle Royal.” It’s where Del Douglas first won and dutifully became “The King.” In past years winners of the event have been shot into stardom as the winner would receive a KSWA Heavyweight Title Shot at FanFest. This year’s winner will receive a nice payday stipend.
But before that plenty of Megastars will be able to shine in front of the KSWA’s most enthusiastic crowds.
Besides the Battle Royal, Party Gras—Lord Zoltan and Justin Sane—will team with the elusive Krazy favorite Sam Squatch for a six-man tag team match against "The King" Del Douglas, The Jester & Sniper. Much will be learned as these two teams—who have never worked together in this capacity—try to work together. And of course it will be interesting to see Sam Squatch work with the KSWA’s other two party animals—Party Gras!
Coming off of a hard-fought defense against Jay Flash, the KSWA World Champion, “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin will not get a Saturday off. According to KSWA Owner Bobby O, Martin will defend against Ric Rumsky. Rumsky looked good in his win over The Jester Friday night. Will Martin be able to avoid Rumsky’s famed superkick?
The KSWA’s Golden Triangle Championship—won by Shane Starr Friday Night—will be defended by the Number One contender for that title—“The Enforcer” Shawn Blanchard. Blanchard beat his long-time friend and associate “The King” Del Douglas for the Number One contender opportunity, also on Friday night. At one time Blanchard personally recruited Starr to be a member of the VIP’s. That association lead to a Tag Team title run, but Blanchard promptly got rid of Starr when the opportunity arose. But now, Starr has the title and Blanchard is looking to hook onto that title, largely because he has never held it before.
The KSWA’s other single’s title, the “5-Star” Championship will be on the line as Champion Jonny Axx defends against the original Jr. Heavyweight Champion, “Ice Man” Tony Johnson. Axx has impressed many observers over the past year, and especially since he obtained the former Jr. Heavyweight Championship. Axx wasn’t able to wrestle the first day of Millvale Days, but he’s raring to go against Johnson, who recorded a win against a very difficult and tough competitor in J-Ru.
Ali Kaida takes on Jay Flash in single’s competition. Jay took KSWA Champion “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin from pillar to post Friday night, but he came up short when Shawn Blanchard interfered in the match. Now Flash has an opportunity to redeem himself against the Afghani Assault Weapon, Ali Kaida. Ali Kaida is as ticked off as usual and Jay Flash is as driven as he’s ever been. This should be an interesting match-up.
Music is a big part of Millvale Days and no one in the KSWA locker room appreciates that more than “Rock n’ Roll” Dave Diamond. Dave has taken on the Legion of the Apocalypse before, naming Ali Kaida, but today he’d like to challenge The Blood Beast. That being noted, it may not be the most opportune time to prod The Blood Beast.
Millvale Days is Saturday, September 15, 2012, bell time is at 3:00 p.m. The event is free and the ring is set up near the Subway Restaurant on Grant Ave. Card is subject to change.
