On Saturday August 10th, Pennsylvania Premiere Wrestling (PPW) hosted Brawl at the Mall, at the Marketplace at Steamtown in Scranton Pennsylvania. There was a meet and greet at 5pm in which many of the wrestlers had merchandise tables and signed autographs. Wrestlers at the meet and greet included Holidead, local favorite Adena Steele, and WWE Hall of Famer Koko B. Ware.

The show opened with PPW TV Champion Johnny Moran issuing an open challenge, which was answered by both Michael Mint and Chubby Daddy. The boss of PPW, who sat at ringside as one of three commentators, agreed that a triple threat match would be on for tonight.

Following this was the first proper match of the evening, a tag team match between the Sons of Dogtown and the Mane Event, which was a tag team duo featuring a masked wrestler playing the part of the lion, and his partner playing the part of a trainer complete with a sparling gold hat. They had a lot of humorous bits, including the trainer holding a hoopla hoop that the lion would jump through and land on his opponent. The Son’s of Dogtown were skater punks managed by a blue haired punk girl named Delilah. They had a bit where one of them rode their skateboard in the ring launching an attack on their opponent. Never the less, Mane Event were victorious.

Another tag team match had Issak Ruhl and Lamar Hawkins vs Antonio Rivera and Drew Adams. Drew was a skinny wrestler who avoided action the whole match and drew a lot of heat from the crowd, especially as his partner was defeated. Other tag team action on the card included the Diamond City War Machines vs the Sambo Show.

Koko B. Ware was in a six man tag partnering with Matt Turner and John Wes. Their opponents were Alexander Bateman, RJS, and a mystery partner which turned out to be James Ellsworth of more recent WWE fame. The two ex WWE stars hassled each other on the mic, with Koko referring to Ellsworth as Vince McMahon’s gopher. During the match Koko brawled outside the ring with Ellsworth while one of his teammates gained a submission victory.

After the match Koko called the kids in the audience to come into the ring. There they did his famous bird dance and he talked to him about the importance of doing well in the upcoming school year.
