The Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) returned to Millvale Days, less than 24 hours after a successful first night along the Allegheny River. There were three titles on the line, but it was a single’s contest that caused the biggest splash.
The King of Millvale Battle Royal
Most of the day’s Megastars were in this contest. All of the referees are on the outside. Justin Sane and Freek E. Doyle are the first to go out. Anthony Alexander and Officer Dan Murphy are eliminated. The Megastars battle it out in an ever-lessening field. J-Ru and Shane Starr go out. Sin Born is next. Lou Martin are out. That means there are seven left in the field. That leaves seven left. Yinza, Kavod, Grayson and Drake.
Kavod and Grayson go after the powerhouse that is The Ram. Yinza tosses both of those men out, and "King" Del Douglas enters the ring, only to toss Yinza out. It looks like Douglas is once against the winner of the Millvale Battle Royal, but out of nowhere, KSWA Owner Bobby O tapped referee “The Count” Mark Charles III as a last-second participant, and he rushed in and surprisingly dumped Douglas. Mark Charles III is officially the winner of the 2022 King of Millvale Battle Royal! 5:32.
