The Battle Royal Champion is the best at throwing men over the top rope. After all, it is how one wins the match. For Big Dave Osborne, it has become an obsession.

Last month, after Big Dave won his match, he told the Broadway fans that he was a shoo-in for the King of Cable Cup this fall:
On September 22nd, I guarantee victory at the St. Louis King of Cable Tournament. I am the number one reason you fans come out to South Broadway. No one will stop me on my eventual reign as MO/IL Heavyweight Champ.
The King of Cable debuted last year (Espinosa won the trophy). It was decided immediately that the KOC should become an annual event. With a strong field including all the singles champions from Missouri, the winner is awarded a heavyweight title shot. It can be redeemed within a year from the win.
The field for the King of Cable on September 22 has not been finalized. When it is, you will find it on this site.
You can see Big Dave Osborne in action tomorrow, August 11th, at the South Broadway Athletic Club.
