Justin Sane Continues Improbable Roll, Malachi Returns To Dirty "Deeds"
June 28, 2015
by Trapper Tom, Ring Announcer/Wrestling Journalist
Justin Sane’s first match in the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) was on May 20, 2000. He is arguably the greatest Golden Triangle Champion of all time, holding the title a record five times. He and Lord Zoltan, collectively known as Party Gras, held the most prestigious tag titles in the State of Pennsylvania—the KSWA Tag Titles—for a record-smashing 75 weeks. That being noted, he’s probably on the biggest roll of his career: in 2015!
In addition, one half of the current KSWA World Tag Team Champions—Mike Malachi—returned to face Bobby Badfingers as one of the most brutal, controversial and talked-about feuds in that division continues to careen on.
Lord Zoltan v. Sniper
This feud has continued on countless times over the career of both wrestlers. For years the two faced off, but never before the pinnacle of Pennsylvania wrestling—the KSWA. Since Zoltan’s debut, and Sniper’s emergence, the two have continued their dislike and distrust. In Lawrenceville at the Independence Day celebration, the war continued. Lord Zoltan follows Sniper to the ring. Mayor Mystery had warned the fans not to openly cheer “USA, USA.” Of course, the proud Lawrenceville crowd ignored it. In fact, after serious dancing, the fans started to chant loudly. The bell rings and the fans continue the USA chant. Sniper checks with Mayor Mystery at ringside. After some hesitation, the Megastars lock up. Lord Zoltan wrenches Sniper’s wrist and then the South African import switches it over. Zoltan wrenches the wrist and tosses Sniper down. The crowd is into the match early on. Sniper argues with referee David Fedor. Sniper gets Zoltan down for a two count.

Zoltan attacks in the corner. Sniper misses with a splash. Mystery gets to the apron. He holds Zoltan up. Sniper goes for a clothesline and Zoltan ducks. The clothesline connects with Mystery.

KSWA World Title: Kris Kash v. Shawn Blanchard (w/Tommy Faime)

He can only get a two count out of the pin attempt. Blanchard chokes and punches Kash. Kash crawls to the corner. Blanchard has wrist tape undone. He chokes Kash with the wrist tape, but the ref can’t find anything on the Champion. Kash recovers, races into the corner and flips out onto Blanchard. Both Megastars are down.

He heaves Kash up for a piledriver and scores the hard-fought win. Blanchard holds onto the KSWA World Title.
Fatal Four Way: Del Douglas, Justin Sane, Harley T. Morris and Jay Flash

Golden Triangle Championship: Kaida v. Lou Martin (champion)
It’s all Kaida in the opening moments. Kaida suplexes Martin and Faime climbs to the apron. Faime, the consummate distractor, nudges attention from Kaida and the referee. Martin uses that to distract Kaida. The Afghani Assault Weapon turns around and right into Martin’s clutches. Martin hits Kaida with a Death Certificate and gets the win in less than two minutes. The crowd is stunned. This stunning loss can only leave the often-absent Kaida wondering about his in-ring future. This loss obviously knocks him out of Golden Triangle contention.
Bobby Badfingers v. Mike Malachi
The feud between “Deeds” and the KSWA World Tag Team Champions—Jack Massacre and “Big” Mike Malachi—continues to be one of the most heated in the organization. Over the KSWA’s epic Summer of 2015 “Krazy Tour,” various schedules have forced one-on-one showdowns, or a handicap match like last week’s in Homestead. However, “Big” Mike was back and looking for vengeance against Bobby Badfingers, who peppered his face with brass knuckles. In this case, even before Malachi can even be introduced, he races to the ring. That’s enough to get the upper hand on Badfingers. Later, Badfingers would confess that he knew he was in trouble. There’s a side suplex from Malachi on Badfingers and he gets the quick win!
Thus ends the KSWA’s annual event at the Lawrenceville Fireworks Celebration in Arsenal Park.
