Sharpsburg Slam To Raise Funds For Guyasuta, Could Change Wrestling Landscape

With just a few months away from FanFest, the identity of the Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) could change drastically this Sunday in Sharpsburg.
The KSWA World Title is on the line as current champion Kris Kash laces up the boots to face former two-time champion “Dr. Devastation” Lou Martin. Never mind the fact that Martin just lost the Golden Triangle Champion to Shane Starr at Brawl Under The Bridge. This might just be the opportunity the VIPs are looking for to reclaim—not only the state’s most prestigious title—but the city’s as well.
That’s because Shane Starr, the new Golden Triangle Champion, faces Shawn Blanchard for that strap. Starr, who along with Kash were tag team champions, are looking to dominate the single’s division. The VIPs, with a sweep of the top two belts, could once again their perch as top dogs in Pittsburgh.
In six-man tag team action, Party Gras—Lord Zoltan and Justin Sane—along with their auxiliary member, The Jester, will face off against the KSWA tag team champions—Spear Asylum—and their tag team partner the brand new 5-Star Champion, Harley T. Morris. Any Pittsburgh tag team division is tough, but Bobby Badfingers and Vinnie Stone have their work cut out for them. This is an opportunity for the KSWA’s all-time top tag team—Lord Zoltan and Justin Sane—to look at the current champions. It may also serve as a chance for The Jester to look at Morris in a new light. The Jester held the 5-Star championship in late 2014 and for nearly half of 2015 before losing it in a Fatal Four Way.
Mitch Napier will face “Nasty” Nick Crane in a battle of old school brawlers. This battle will be a good test for Napier, who has taken on all comers in recent months. Despite losing the 5-Star championship to Kaida in the Best of Five series, Napier continues to dominate the competition. Meanwhile, Crane has always been a top competitor. Both Megastars also know a serious series of technical moves, but brawling will probably be the key definition on Sunday.
And special to the Sharpsburg Slam will be an Over The Top Battle Royal. This is a chance for any Megastar who needs to make a statement going into FanFest season. The winner of the Battle Royal could find himself in the running for any of the promotion’s premier titles.
All of this and more goes down this Sunday, as a kickoff to the 20th Anniversary Guyasuta Days Festival. Bell time is 6 p.m. All tickets are $10.
