Might Lawless Slam The Gavel Down On Napier And Score PA Wrestling's Top Prize
June 11, 2017

The Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) has earned its place in professional sports as an institution where opportunity is paramount. And as Pittsburgh’s professional wrestling organization, the KSWA has provided unique chances for those reaching for the top rung of the sport. On Saturday, June 17, the KSWA provides a hereto, unprecedented break to a young, accomplished star.
“The Gavel,” David Lawless, Esq., challenges KSWA World Champion Mitch Napier for the most coveted championship in the Commonwealth.
“The Gavel David Lawless, Esq. is the greatest attorney and professional wrestler,” Lawless wrote recently in an email to KSWA Digest. “When you combine the athletic ability, intelligence, and instinct of the Gavel, you get a competitor that is second to none.”
Lawless, who has held several championships in a regional promotion outside of Pittsburgh, is chomping at the bit to take on Napier. Lawless certainly touts one of the greatest technical minds in Independent wrestling, and he is intelligent enough to know that tangling with Napier will provide a test for both men.
Lawless continued, “Lawyers are the cornerstone of America. Nothing gets done without the insight and ability of an attorney. What sets the ‘Gavel David Lawless’ apart from his opponents is that he has the greatest intellect, wealth, and ability to learn that anyone that has ever stepped foot in the squared circle.”
The attorney has been so confident in his ability to encounter Napier, he posted a video on KSWA media announcing his introduction to the Krazies, who he called “all you hipsters, all you hoodlums, all you morons.”
When the match takes place, Lawless will be taking on Napier, who since winning the title at FanFest in December, has taken on a “who’s who” of challengers. From former champion Jay Flash to the always tough Bobby Badfingers to former two-time KSWA champion Lou Martin and one of Indy Wrestling’s most decorated athletes, Denny Gregory, Mitch Napier has successfully defended against all.
This showdown, as promised, is exceptional. Both wrestlers are in their athletic prime. Napier is one year older than Lawless, and they both possess similar physical tools and size. Napier is a native of Sioux Falls, Idaho and Lawless hails from Truth of Consequences, New Mexico.
The KSWA Championship Committee has celebrated the promotion’s success by opening the door of opportunity to a plethora of newcomers. From the veteran Gregory, who has amassed a stellar career for many years, to others like MV Young, who has already traveled much of the globe to wrestler, to others like BROhemoth, Zak Hunter and Gino Slice, who continue to apply their significant trade. Just last month, Lucio Deveer and Remy Levay made a successful debut in tag team competition. And in addition to Lawless, the long-time villain Sheriff Steele makes his debut in a battle of independent legends with Lord Zoltan.
“You never know who is going to walk through the door of the KSWA,” said KSWA Owner Bobby O. “This has been a great time in our history.”
Might this opportunity be a way of laying down the law on Napier? Lawless continues, “Lawless will understand his opponent Better than anyone and use his athleticism and intelligence to outsmart whoever steps in the ring.”
For his part, Napier says he is eager for the challenge as he has never backed down from a fight and he doesn’t plan to Saturday night.
The KSWA returns to action on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at Spirit Lounge 242 51st Street in the Lawrenceville neighborhood within the city of Pittsburgh. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for kids. Card is subject to change. For more information, call 412-726-1762.
