Hobo embraced his new friend, as seen in these videos which aired over a month-long span on PWO TV, as Hobo teaches Maguire the fine art of being homeless including self-defense, begging, and street performing, all to less-than-stellar results!

KSWA Owner Bobby O Plans Mega Announcement, Rematch Clauses Cashed In At “New Year’s Knockout”

By Trapper Tom, Ring Announcer

The New Year brings a lot of challenges and excitement and the KSWA is certainly no exception, with “New Year’s Knockout.”

The KSWA Arena at the Lawrenceville Moose is still reverberating from all of the action at FanFest, where a new attendance record was set. Double A Anthony Alexander was able to hold onto the World Heavyweight Championship after a hard fought battle with Ali Kaida; however, there’s a new Golden Triangle Champion in La Lucha and new World Tag Team Champions in The Blood Beast and The Latin Assassin.

In addition, Shane Starr had his hair shaved after losing to Justin Sane, the King Del Douglas regained is crown, and the Great Toyota was able to keep his mask.

This Saturday, January 17, “The Enforcer” Shawn Blanchard hopes to seek some revenge against Justin Sane for his fellow VIP member, Shane Starr. Conversely, Justin is riding high after his win against the Camden, New Jersey hooligan.

Speaking of Starr, he will take on the Great Toyota. Starr has been pulling his remaining hair out as a result of losing to Justin Sane. Great Toyota, meanwhile, has been riding high after keeping hold of his dearly loved, ceremonial mask. This could be an interesting match to watch between two Megastars on opposite ends of the success train.

Kris Kash takes on Del Douglas. Douglas has been ranting and raving in the KSWA offices, as he’s still upset over losing his beloved crown in the first place. Kris Kash looks forward to giving Douglas the “Royal Treatment” in a one-on-one contest.

In a FanFest Return Match, Big Mike Malachi will attempt to regain the Golden Triangle Championship off of the new titleholder, La Lucha.

While mentioning return clauses, the Greatest Tag Team Evaa (Ric Rumsky and Alex Arcadian) are cashing in the rematch clause they never cashed in when they lost the straps to Biker Al and Vicious Vinnie Stone a few months ago. They will challenge the new, two-time KSWA World Tag Team Champions.

Much needs to be answered about KSWA Heavyweight Champion Double A Anthony Alexander’s future after the culmination of his year-long feud with Ali Kaida. Meanwhile, the Afghani Assault Weapon’s mindset has to be at a fever pitch after coming so close to the ultimate prize in our sport.

Biker Al and his cousin Vinnie are promising that someone will pay after their Tag Team Championship loss.

And last but certainly not least, KSWA Owner Bobby O is promising an announcement that will shake the foundation of organization forever. What could that be? There’s only one way to find out.

“New Year’s Knockout” is this Saturday, January 17, 2009 at the Home of Professional Wrestling in Pittsburgh, the Lawrenceville Moose, 120 51st Street, just of Butler Street in the Lawrenceville neighborhood within the city of Pittsburgh. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for kids. Bell time is 7:30 p.m. Card is subject to change.
