Wootton Continues War Against Sane, May Have Rankled Bourbon Street Brawler

Curt Wootton took an old fashioned whoopin’ at the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) Battle Bowl on Saturday, January 16. Near half-way through the 32 man over-the-top-rope battle royal field, Wootton entered the contest with giants already in the ring, and he also earned some respect.
Jack Massacre and T-Rantula are both 7-foot-tall and eager for heavy-handed, hard-hitting action. The behemoths had already been in the ring for a while when the actor-turned-wrestler entered the fray. Every two minutes a new wrestler was introduced and made his way to the ring. Once inside, Wootton faced a litany of challengers. Both giants hit the fit and feisty Wootton with big chops to the bare chest. T-Rantula, in particular, took great relish in peppering Wootton with over hand chops with a hand best compared to a cast iron skillet. T-Rantula also grabbed the announcer’s microphone, turned it on, and clanked it on Wootton’s forehead.
Wootton entered the battle royal in random fashion, but not long after Harley T. Morris. The two West Virginia natives have struck up quite a friendship and partnership since Wootton turned on Justin Sane during FanFest last December. Wootton was in Justin Sane’s corner for a flag match against the Mountaineer State’s Morris (along with his manager, “The Mad Genius” David Marbell). After Sane won the Flag Match fair and square, Wootton ambushed him and broke the Pitt flag pole over his back.
Wootton is now booed heartily but the Krazies.
Wootton took on not only T-Rantula and Jack Massacre; he also battled Jay Flash, Golden Triangle Champion Lou Martin and former 6-time KSWA Champion Shawn Blanchard during his time in the main event.
Meanwhile, this could be Justin Sane’s first attempt to seek vengeance on Wootton. Wootton battles in the ring, and two minutes later Lord Zoltan is next. Zoltan, who has been Justin Sane’s long-time friend, tag team partner, and former world tag team champion, goes to the ring. The 40-year wrestling legend wears a custom-made #40 Penguins jersey with the name “Zoltan” on the back. He goes after ringside tools like hammers and wrenches, pretty much immediately. Zoltan will use anything within arm’s reach to grab an advantage.
Next in the battle is El Skeletorious, the dancing, former 12-time Mexican wrestling champion. This wasn’t his match, as he was tossed out pretty quickly.
Then Justin Sane is next. He goes right after Wootton and Morris and finds a fresh set a boots on his jaw and in his midsection. The attack is pretty quick. Unfortunately for Justin, the momentum and double team works against him. Wootton and Morris throw Sane over the top rope and onto the floor below for elimination.
Quickly, Lord Zoltan springs into action and launches Wootton from behind and over the top rope. Wootton and Sane are eliminated. Later, Zoltan would be eliminated and Morris would find himself in the final four. That guarantees him an opportunity at KSWA gold in the 2016 calendar season.
But Wootton might have found himself in an unenviable position. The star of “Pittsburgh Dad,” “The Mercury Men,” and “Bigfoot: The Movie,” is now in the crosshairs of the only KSWA Megastar willing to win at any cost. Victims of wrench, rope and little hammer attacks know that Lord Zoltan breaks rules with the best of them, despite being on the fan’s side. The dancing brawler from Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana, once again seems poised to defend his old friend Justin Sane.
Curt Wootton and Harley T. Morris may have more than they have bargained for, as it looks like Party Gras is back.
The KSWA returns to action on Saturday, February 20 at the Teamster Temple, 4701 Butler Street in the Lawrenceville neighborhood within the city of Pittsburgh.
