By Bobby O

In front and energetic crowd at the Kinloch VFC, the KSWA made its annual appearance in Lower Burrell, teaming up with our friends from Sam’s Club in support of a great cause, The Children’s Miracle Network. Seven great matches were held, including 3 title bouts. Here is the rundown.

Face of Pittsburgh Lou Martin vs Shawn Blanchard

Blanchard is accompanied to the ring by “The King” Del Douglas, who is greeted by chants of Dairy Queen, Burger King, Barney and the newest derision, Hot Dog. Martin suspects Blanchard has a foreign object of some kind, but referee Shawn Patrick can find no evidence of any malfeasance. During the search, Douglas pounds the mat and Martin stomps on the King’s fingers in response. Blanchard takes the early advantage with an arm ringer and an eye rake, but Martin quickly reverses the arm hold and pounds away on Blanchard’s back. Blanchard reverses again, then applies a side headlock and fells Martin with a shoulder block. Martin regains control with a pair of hip tosses and an arm bar. The Face then leg drops the left arm of Blanchard before the Enforcer escapes. As Blanchard talks with Patrick, Douglas chokes Martin. Blanchard attacks with a series of double thrust chops to the neck and throat area. After a kick to the face, Blanchard pulls the nose and ears of Martin before fish hooking his opponent’s mouth. He ends the sequence with an eye rake via his boot, a body slam, and a big elbow, which nets a two count. Martin eventually regains control and works Blanchard’s head into every turnbuckle 10 times followed by a brutal chop to the chest, which delight’s the Krazies. After a clothesline, Martin attempts a pinfall which Blanchard escapes at two. Marin lands a couple of rights and then forces Blanchard into the corner, which is followed by ten punches to the head. But the wily veteran Blanchard escapes and forces Martin to the mat after a back elbow, followed by a front face lock, but Martin does not submit. Blanchard climbs to the top rope in the corner, sensing a big aerial move for the win, but Martin catches his rival in the act and throws Blanchard mat ward with a huge power slam. Martin then climbs the ropes and hits a swanton bomb from the top rope. He hooks the leg as Patrick counts to three, and The Face of Pittsburgh is your opening match winner. (11:30)

K.S.W.A. Golden Triangle Champion YINZA vs. Sin Born

The first title defense of the night was also the first title defense for the newly crowned GT champion Yinza. A freshly shorn Sin Born hits the ring first with his usual rancor, followed by the hugely popular Pittsburgh Luchador. As Yinza acknowledges the crowd from the top rope, Sin Born attacks from behind. After the combatant’s trade punches, Yinza sends Sin Born over the top rope to the floor with a strong clothesline.

Sane reverses the hold and tries for a shoulder block, but Hunt jumps over his shorter opponent and throws Sane over with a hip toss. Sane side steps an attack and plants a kick to Hunt’s noggin.

Shane Starr vs. Edric Everhart

These two energetic foes seem equally talented but with vastly different approaches. The fan favorite Starr locks up with the New Uglee and breaks clean after forcing Everhart into the corner. The sequence repeats with a surprising clean break by Everhart. Edric complains that his equally long-haired opponent is gaining an advantage by hair pulling, which referee Jimmy James quickly dismisses.

The Beastman vs. Harley T. Morris

It’s a battle of two Mountaineer State natives as the Wildman and one half of the KSWA tag teams champions do battle. Beast Man rolls towards Morris in an agile move belying his size which leaves Morris surprised and retreating. Morris then climbs the ropes in a continued retreat to avoid the Beast Man. Morris then calls for a test of strength. The behemoth shows surprise and then agrees, but Morris runs from the ring before the test can begin. Back in the ring, Morris uses his speed to turn the test of strength into a wristlock and then a side headlock, which the Beast Man counters with a side headlock of his own. The hold is wrenched in over and over again, to the ropes and then Morris goes up and over and heads to the ring apron, before the Beast Man brings him back in the hard way. The tag champion then gets up and bites the hand of the Beast Man, who returns the favor with some additional slobber and then he tries to bite a chunk out of Morris’ forehead. Morris is whipped to the opposite corner and then is clotheslined by the Beast Man. But HTM slips out of a body slam attempt and then smartly chop blocks the left leg of the Beast Man, sending his larger competitor to his knees. Morris keeps the advantage by working the tree trunk of a left leg, but the Beast Man eventually fends off the attack. But that is temporary, as HTM gets back to working the leg and the Beast Man is eventually on the mat. He steps on the leg and ankle, and after a few kicks, a hobbled Beast Man work to his feet and lands a right hand and a chop, but a knee to the groin fells the 400 pounder. Beast Man shows resilience and fights back, planting Morris with a DDT. But Morris again focuses his attack on the left leg. He wrenches the ankle with several step over toe holds. But Beast Man guzzles Morris who kicks his opponent and tries for a sunset flip. Bad news for Morris as Beast Man steadies but Morris is able to scurry away and avoid the big butt splash from the ample derriere of the Beast Man. A super kick does net Morris a one count and then he applies a sleeper hold. Beast Man fights back after two and Morris mounts the large back of the Beast Man continuing the submission hold. That is ended by a huge fallback slam that flattens Morris, both men recover after a five count. Morris with three attempted rights, three blocks from the Beast Man and three big soup bone rights hammer Morris in the skull. A cross body block and then a big double choke slam from the Beast Man leads to a cover, which sees Morris find something inside to kick out at two and three quarters. A frustrated Beast Man clotheslines Morris over the top rope to the floor and the big man heads after Morris in pursuit. The Beast Man then slams Morris’ head three times into the Sam’s Club table and then he lands a huge chop that reverberates throughout the Kinloch Fire Hall. HTM is staggered on the ground and as he stumbles towards the ring, the Beast Man charges. Morris smartly side steps the ensuing collision and in the process shoves the big man into the ring post. Even more alertly, Morris leaps back into the ring before the ten count. Beast Man cannot beat the count and Morris has his hand raised in a count out victory over his fellow West Virginian. (11:28)

The defending heavyweight champion has secured the services of The King Del Douglas who accompanies J Ru to the ring for the main event. The Krazies deride Douglas with Burger King chants and eventually chide J Ru as a little teapot. Gregory enters with his typical aplomb to a warm welcome as the Krazies haven’t seen the Hall-of-Famer in a while, and the champion and challenger the proceed to lock up. Into the corner the pair goes and a clean break, then another lock up. Gregory ducks a right hand and throws J Ru around with a pair of hip tosses. J Ru scurries outside of the ring and cowers in an embrace with the King. Gregory looks to splash the pair over the top rope, which sends the dastardly duo scattering as Gregory fakes the move.

Although winded, Gregory regains his senses enough to slip behind an onrushing J Ru and gets the champion down with a gut wrench. Gregory lays a pair of right forearms to J Ru’s back.

J Ru fights out of the hold and with Gregory near the ropes, the King rakes the challenger’s eyes and lays in a right hand. Seemingly out of desperation, Gregory somehow slingshot’s J Ru on the top rope. Bothe men are down. J Ru gets to his knees as the King gets on the ring apron. Gregory has had enough and takes the King off the apron to the floor with a stiff right hand. But the challenger doesn’t notice that Douglas handed the champion a set of brass knuckles during the exchange. As Gregory lifts J RU in the air for a suplex, the champion temporarily incapacitates the challenger with a brass knuckled right hand. J Ru hides the evidence and covers Gregory for a count of three to retain the KSWA Heavyweight championship. (9:28)
