Keystone State Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin had a firm warming and stiff financial bet on Ric Rumsky leading up to FanFest in December. The Champ actually placed a bounty on Rumsky’s head, and a familiar brute came forward in an attempt to collect. Meanwhile, Golden Triangle Champion Shane Starr defended his title against two foes who have tasted GT gold before. In addition to all of that, Lord Zoltan took flight.
Mercenaries & Kaida v. Flash, Johnson and Massacre
The Mercenaries and Ali Kaida hit the ring before Jay Flash, Tony Johnson and Jack Massacre energized the masses. The bell rings and Tony Johnson starts out with Sniper. The South African pushes Tony Johnson into the corner and then the St. Louis, Missouri native rolls him up for a near pinfall. Johnson tags in Flash as Sniper tags his partner “Nasty” Nick Crane. Crane is leveled, and then thrown into Jack Massacre. Massacre scoop slams Crane and plants him in the center of the ring. Massacre spins Crane around and Jay Flash comes in with a drop kick to the spinning Crane. Flash is tagged in legally and corners Crane once again. Sniper may have blasted Johnson as he ricocheted off the ropes, enough to floor Tony. Now it’s all Mercenaries and Kaida. They choke Johnson in the corner and keep him there. Kaida is tagged in for a big double sledge on Johnson. Then there’s a rear chin hold on a seated Johnson. Johnson battles out of it, and then delivers forearms. An attempted whip into the corner ends with a Kaida clothesline. Johnson is in the enemy’s corner again as Sniper is tagged back in. Crane is tagged in again and the Mercenaries double clothesline Johnson. Sniper illegally attacks Johnson before Crane takes control. Kaida is in again and he T-bone suplexes Johnson. A near pinfall gets Flash into the ring. Soon referee Justin Smith is trying to keep Flash out of the ring. Suddenly, Johnson springs to his feet and tags in Massacre. Sniper wants nothing to do with the Giant. Big forearms keep Sniper down. Sniper is whipped into the corner and hit with a huge splash. Sniper rallies with chops to Massacre. He isn’t impressed. A giant head butt floors Sniper and draws laughs from the crowd. Flash is tagged back in and Sniper perhaps hits a low blow on his opponent. Crane is tagged back in and he goes after Flash. A back elbow floors Flash. A double clothesline floors both Crane and Flash. Flash tags in Massacre and Crane gets to Kaida. A Battle of the Giants is set to ensue. They trade blows in the center of the ring, then all six Megastars are in the ring. Johnson and Sniper go out. Then Flash and Crane. That leaves Massacre and Kaida. Kaida is posted on the top corner post and driven off the top by Massacre. Jack pins Ali and the team of Flash, Johnson and Massacre celebrate. The Mercenaries and Ali Kaida make their way back to the locker room, dejected, irritated and exhausted.
Five Star Championship: Axx (champion) v. Super Ginger
The two lock up, then Axx applies a wrist lock. Super Ginger doesn’t know whether to battle out or simply reach for the ropes. Ginger then gets Axx in a headlock. Ginger keeps Axx at bay before Axx tosses him into the ropes and levels him with a shoulder block. Axx attempts to slow the quickening pace down by staying away from the challenger. Ginger goes for a test of strength position, but Axx hip tosses him down to the mat. A clothesline follows then a rear chin lock. Ginger battles out with elbows before tossing Axx outside.

Referee Shawn Patrick administers a count. Axx tries to roll Ginger up, then Ginger tries to roll Axx up. They continue with the mat work for several minutes. Ginger gets Axx into an arm submission but the Cleveland native won’t submit. Ginger rallies the faithful as he gets to the ropes. Axx meets him with some forearms and that weakens the Ginger Hill, PA native enough for a DDT from the middle rope. The winner and still the 5-Star Champion: Jonny Axx.
Ric Rumsky v. The Blood Beast
Following October’s “Autumn Annihilation,” KSWA Champion “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin offered a $1,000 bounty to anyone who takes out Ric Rumsky before FanFest. The Blood Beast accepted the challenge. The lock up with the impressive Blood Beast leads to tossing Rumsky about the ring. The Beast lands a powerful powerbomb, then follows that up with a big chop. Several power moves later, the Bell Aire, Ohio, native is prone on the mat. A bodyslam follows. Blood Beast uses his shin to inflect pain on Rumsky’s neck.

Both Megastars are down in the center of the ring. Beast gets up and immediately is blasted with Rumsky’s superkick. There’s a one, two, three and the winner is Ric Rumsky! Before anything else could happen, Martin charges the ring with his baseball bat and a chain around his fist. For several moments, Martin blasts Rumsky with both. The Blood Beast saunters away as all three referees hit the ring. Their presence is useless and the assault continues. All three referees are then attacked and the assault on Rumsky continues. After tiring, Martin lets up and leaves Rumsky in a heap. The audience is beside itself as Martin crows.
Jester v. Lord Zoltan
The Jester is accompanied to the ring by “King Del Douglas. Lord Zoltan, one-half of the KSWA World Tag Team Champions, is alone as Justin Sane is not in attendance. That doesn’t stop the KSWA Hall of Famer from dancing with everyone in the standing-room-only crowd. The Jester is ready to jump out of his skin as Zoltan dances at will. Zoltan places a fireman’s helmet on his head and Del Douglas potests loudly. Zoltan enters the ring and The Jester shouts “Finally!” The mental games are on. The King shouts encouragement to The Jester as Zoltan starts his familiar “Matador” routine. The Jester fails to catch Zoltan’s robe twice. He shouts “I’m gonna get that” before missing and falling to the outside. A “test of strength” goes awry for the Jester as Zoltan simply grabs his expansive bosoms. The Jester is tossed around. Then Zoltan gets his opponent in a wrist lock. Before he knows it, The Jester is given a wedgie, spanked and tossed, bare-bottomed, to the outside. With more encouragement from Douglas, The Jester is back in the ring and he gets some offense on Zoltan. A knee to the gut falls the tag team champion. Douglas attacks him as Zoltan is in the ropes. Douglas shouts “yea” as The Jester has Zoltan down. A sunset flip keeps Zoltan down. There’s a two-count. Zoltan is staggered as Jester whips him into the ropes. A sunset flip follows, but Zoltan holds on and applies another wedgie. This bares his buttocks even more. The crowd is beside itself as The Jester goes on the offensive with extra skin showing. (It is referee Shawn Patrick who fixes The Jester’s bare buttock problem.) Two different sledges from the middle rope keep Zoltan down. The third is ready when Zoltan gets up and delivers a left fist into The Jester’s gut. Zoltan plows The Jester’s skull into each corner post. Zoltan hits his head into the turnbuckle 10 times, then clobbers him ten more. Douglas gets to the apron, Zoltan tosses Jester into The King and knocks him down. Lord Zoltan quickly climbs to the top rope and lands a knee for the win.

He said without Bobby O or Kommissioner Joe Perri, he set up a handicapped match with the VIPs versus Mitch Napier. Napier makes his way to the ring, confidently.
