By Trapper Tom, Editor, KSWA Digest
Day two of the Millvale Days extravaganza started the annual “King of Millvale” Over-The-Top-Rope Battle Royal. “King” Del Douglas was the first victor and maintains his royal heritage—as a self-presumed result—ever since. This year, the winner of the Battle Royal was given a shot at the KSWA Heavyweight Title that same afternoon.
"King Of Millvale" Battle Royal
The event begins with 14 Megastars vying for the title. During the scrum, many Megastars battled individual battles, all with eyes on the KSWA prize. Justin Sane was the first Megastar to be eliminated. The “new attitude” Bob Badfingers was next. One half of the KSWA tag team championships, The Jester was tossed over after a tough battle. The returning “Gavel” David Lawless, who would battle The Jester later in the day, was next to taste asphalt at the corner of Grant and Sedwick. Kris Kash, who assuredly hoped to have a shot at KSWA gold this day, was next. Rookie Trick McSorely couldn’t quite take advantage of an unprecedented opportunity at Pittsburgh professional wrestling legacy, was next to be eliminated. LA Gold made his first appearance in the KSWA since Battle Bowl, was next. In one of the most shocking eliminations of the day, Shawn Blanchard was tossed by Yinza. Incredibly, Lou Martin was the next overboard…also by Yinza. The Pittsburgh Luchadore was then tossed over by Lucio Deveer. Another rookie, Matt McGraw, was tossed by Harley T. Morris. “The King” Del Douglas, who was hoping to claim Indy Professional Wrestling’s most prestigious title, had his dreams cut short by Deveer, who swept in from behind and tossed him over. That left Harley T. Morris and Lucio. Morris was able to duck the charging Deveer, pull down the rope and watch his long opponent sail over and onto the hard floor below. The winner of the match and opportunity at KSWA gold was Harley T. Morris! 11:11
