One week after reclaiming the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) tag team championships in one of the most physical contests of the year, the Best Bros Around will defend against the VIPs. Mitch Napier and Verona’s own BROhemoth were able to dispatch of Shawn Blanchard and Lou Martin in an Ambulance Match. (It was the second year in a row BROhemoth tossed Martin into an emergency response vehicle in his home town). Now the teams are ready to go at again as the KSWA returns home to Spirit Hall. In fact, the KSWA tag team division has never been more stacked, so regardless of the outcome, many Megastars will be watching what happens next.
On Saturday, KSWA Heavyweight Champion Dennis Gregory defends the Commonwealth’s most coveted title against Yinza! The Pittsburgh Luchador had an opportunity at Bubba the Bulldog’s Golden Triangle Championship a few events ago, but the GT Champion bailed out of that event. Yinza didn’t pout, he just scored a couple of victories over “King” Del Douglas after a strong showing at Brawl Under the Bridge 5’s Ladder Match Main Event.
Just like Gregory, Mayor Mystery’s man Bubba the Bulldog was victorious last weekend and looking for another victory this coming Spirit Hall stop against Beastman. Bubba has won against all comers (except for Sly Scarpone in 5-Star Championship matches that is) and expects to do the same against the unpredictable Stone Age Savage. Might Bubba’s luck run out? Will the Beastman become the newest Golden Triangle Champion and become the largest wrestler to hold the belt since Bulldozer a number of years ago?
Five Star Champion Sly Scarpone puts his title on the line against the crafty former KSWA Heavyweight Champion “The Gavel” David Lawless. The two athletes are in prime readiness and prepared for this display of technical skills and power. Both men are proficient at trading moves, as well as trading punches. Fore professional wrestling purists, this contest between the champion from Indian Lake, Pennsylvania and challenger from Truth or Consequences, New Mexico will be one to watch.
A rematch from Sheraden takes place this Saturday night as Thy Kingdom Come—“King” Del Douglas and Rev Ron Hunt—take on T-Rantula and “Big Country” Matt McGraw in tag team action. Douglas and Hunt were on the “Nacho City” end during their last contest, but have vowed to never let that happen again. Even though Hunt was pinned by Zak Hunter last Saturday in Verona and Douglas fell to the surging Yinza, the team is still impressive in the eyes of the KSWA Championship Committee. Meanwhile, T-Rantula and Big Country have been rolling to the winner’s pay window. Don’t expect either team to let up this coming weekend.
In one of the most important matches on the card without a championship on the line is between Jack Massacre and Double-A Anthony Alexander. Alexander had a great showing against Dennis Gregory last Saturday in Verona, albeit in a losing effort. Mayor Mystery’s 7-foot weapon is rested and prime to take out the Prime-Time Player with the Road to FanFest off in the not-too-distant future. Since losing the Golden Triangle Championship to Bubba the Bulldog, Double-A has been firmly in the sites of Mayor Mystery’s Distinguished Gentlemen. The Manager of Champions is looking forward to Massacre ending Alexander’s charge toward singles gold.
In Fatal Four-Way action, Harley T. Morris, Lucio Deveer, Zak Hunter and Justin Sane face off. All four Megastars have had impressive wins in recent weeks and look to impress the KSWA Championship Committee. Sane has looked better in recent outings than ever before, Hunter recently defeated Rev Ron Hunt, Morris continues to bring hard-hitting contests and Deveer has taken on friends and foes alike. None of the KSWA’s roster is hungrier than these four competitors and a win here will catapult one of them forward.
