At one point, the Jester bends down to show off his wide-hipped posterior. The fans find that immensely in Millvale and beyond. The two wrestlers trade chops, slaps and digs. The Jester, who has been away from the KSWA ring for most of the summer, once left the 5-Star Champion but finds himself in a touch-and-go with the more fluent Morris. The contest ends with Morris suddenly, and to some surprisingly, pinning Jester in the middle of the ring.
