TWA PRESS RELEASE- PRO WRESTLING PLAY NOW SHOWING IN PHILADELPHIA and PLAY'S STAR TO DEBUT ON THE NEXT TWA "TOYS FOR TOTS" EVENT on DECEMBER 5, 2009
Interact Theater Company's THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY is
playing now through November 22, 2009 at The Philadelphia Shakespeare
Theatre (1 block west of InterAct's home at The Adrienne), 2111 Sansom
Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Wrestling Consultant /
Co-Fight Choreographer for the play is the Tri-State Wrestling
Alliance's own "Hitman" Tony Stetson.
ABOUT THE PLAY: Set in the larger-than-life world of professional
wrestling, and fueled by vibrant, hip-hop language, CHAD DEITY pits
long-time reigning T.H.E. Wrestling champion, Chad Deity, against
Vigneshwar Paduar, a trash-talking, India-born athlete recruited from
the b-ball courts of Brooklyn. Casting the young upstart as an anti-hero
extremist from "over there" who intends to catapult himself to fame by
overthrowing the "all-American" Chad Deity, T.H.E. Wrestling's CEO
plots to play upon wrestling fans' fear of terrorism and globalization
in order to mass market an epic battle of Good vs. Evil.

The scheduled card* is as follows...
- An Over-the-Top-Rope Battle Royal, with the winner earning a title
shot at the NEW TWA Heavyweight Champion, Glen Osbourne, later in the
"Beast" Glen Osbourne won the TWA Heavyweight Title at the Oct 24
Reunion Show from "Nature Boy" Buddy Landel with Matt Rivera after
Commissioner Joel Goodhart re-instated Buddy Landel as the TWA
Heavyweight Champion. Osbourne earned Landel's respect, as after the
Nature Boy was defeated by Osbourne, he hugged him and raised his hand
in victory. After winning a title he did not even know he would be
competing for and defeating a wrestling legend like Buddy Landel, the
"Beast" will have all eyes set on him and the title as the entire TWA
locker room will be going at it in a Battle Royal, all fighting for a
chance at the champion and the opportunity to become the TWA Heavyweight
- Tag-Team Grudge Match: The Hitmen, Michael Bruno & Tony Stetson, vs.
Breaker Morant & Johnny Calzone
Due to an illness, Max Thrasher was unable to make it to the Oct 24
Reunion Show for his six-man tag team match with Jimmy Cicero and
Cueball Carmichael against Crybaby Waldo, the Blue Meanie, and Kid
America. Also, "Latin Lover" Rick Perez, schedule to face Don E Allen,
was unable to compete due to a back injury. Commissioner Joel Goodhart
had to re-arrange the line-up a bit, and put Calzone in the six-man
thinking he complimented Cicero and Carmichael, and then put Bruno
against Don E Allen. After winding up on the losing end of the six-man,
Calzone took offense, and watched Bruno's match from the arena floor.
After Bruno won the match, Calzone berated Bruno, feeling that Bruno was
avoiding him and had Goodhart change the match for him after weeks of
promotion. Calzone then viciously attacked Bruno, when "Hitman" Tony
Stetson, Bruno's tag-team partner, was alerted and ran in to defend his
Then, in the semi-final match of the evening, "Hitman" Tony Stetson came
out of retirement after 7 years to defeat the man who was responsible
for putting him out of the business, Breaker Morant. Just before
Stetson could celebrate with his huge crowd of family and friends,
Morant attacked Stetson, place his bad leg in a steel chair and jumped
onto it off the top rope. Stetson's family, friends, and fans gasped.
As Morant was about to jump on Stetson's leg for a second time,
undoubtedly trying to deliver on his promise to retire Stetson for good
this time, Michael Bruno ran in to save his partner from further injury.
Within minutes, Johnny Calzone joined the fray trying to get another
piece of Bruno, before the Hitmen were able to run the duo off, and
challenging them to a tag team match on December 5th at St. Matthew's
Baptist Church in Williamstown, New Jersey.
While Morant and Calzone are dangerous and intent to hurting and
injuring the Hitmen, Stetson and Bruno are long time friends and
partners, and will no doubt have the fans cheering them on! It promises
to be one wild match!
