The Keystone State Wrestling Alliance (KSWA) teams with Century III KIA once again for a Customer Appreciation Afternoon, this Saturday, September 2.

The KSWA Championship Committee continues its summer of opportunities with Brother Lion, a newcomer to Pittsburgh’s official professional wrestling organization, getting a crack at the most coveted title in the Commonwealth, the KSWA Heavyweight Championship.

Just last week, KSWA Champion Lou Martin was able to get by another rough-and-tumble challenger in “The Ram” Anthony Drake. In addition to fending off ready challengers like “The Ram,” Martin remains in a life-or-death struggle with “The Dynasty.” Might this be the time for an unorthodox challenger like Brother Lion to make a history-making change?

The KSWA’s Golden Triangle Championship will be defended by Tyler Grayson when he takes on challenger Harley T. Morris. Morris, one of the KSWA’s most fervent Megastars, gets a chance for the city of Pittsburgh’s most cherished title. One of Pittsburgh’s most reviled villains, Morris could cement his position as an all-time great with a win here.

One of KSWA’s most successful Five Star Champions, Sin Born will defend that title against a friend and occasional tag team partner in “The Ram” Anthony Drake. The KSWA Championship Committee isn’t afraid of matching up friends when it comes to championships and these two wrestlers bring different styles to the ring. Both brawlers, Drake is an unstoppable force and Sin Born is more of a technician in the ring. This will be a match fans will want to see.

Edric Everhart will take on Justin Sane in one-on-one competition. Everhart has been battling Hall of Famer Dennis Gregory and has encouraged the former KSWA Heavyweight Champion to be his tag team partner in an upcoming opportunity for the KSWA tag team championships. Here Everhart takes on Justin Sane, one of the most successful tag team champions in Pittsburgh wrestling history. In addition to that, Sane has been a multi-time singles champion. These two wrestlers have met before, but with the fall season on the horizon, this matchup is key for both Megastars.

Captain Curley John, who was very popular with the crowd at Birdville on Saturday, will get an unbelievable one-on-one match with the Dynasty’s Shawn Blanchard. The former 6-time KSWA Heavyweight Champion has taken to having matches with young competitors, such as Hunter Huffman. Here, he takes on another rookie in the good Captain.

KSWA joins the Century 3 KIA Customer Appreciation Event on Saturday, September 2, at 1:00 p.m., 2483 Lebanon Church Road in West Mifflin, 15122. This is a free event, but Century III Kia is asking fans to bring canned goods for entry to benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.
