You could cut the anticipation with a knife an hour before doors opened and the fans came ready to see history made at the Sportatorium. CWF END OF AN ERA 2019 kicked off with a six-man tag team bout between a few fellows with some history, with the team of Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe, Dirty Daddy and Bellamy Koga squaring up against CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay, Snooty Foxx and "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. The match seemed personal and some ugly intentions may have surfaced along the way, but the fan favorites, Kool Jay, Snooty and TKO maintained their composure and won by pinfall.
"Pitbull" Steven Idol was up next to take on veteran Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega in singles action. The two exchanged pleasantries, chops, kicks and holds in a brutal physical match up of two determined competitors who offer no quarter. Both men blistered each other's chests and displayed their abilities to counter holds but the Pitbull ended up on top with Ortega tying him up unaware his OWN shoulders were on the canvas.
Kamakazi Kid entered with a house mic as did Aric Andrews and referees hit the ring to keep distance between the two as vulgarities and threats ensued. Andrews exited the back door leaving Kazi sputtering mad in the ring with the referees.
CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs was introduced and CL Party entered to choose an opponent at random, as is custom. The envelope chosen read "Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins" and BOTH entered when their names were mentioned. Senior referee Charles Richardson called for the house mic after the All Stars entourage entered and ordered that there would be no "All Stars Rules" in his ring. Mike Mars made his entrance and Richardson waved off the scheduled TV Title match and ordered a tag team match in it's place, pitting Royal and Wilkins against Biggs and Mars.
Coach Gemini reluctantly encouraged his team to enter the ring at their own chosen pace as the Rampaging Beast snorted and roared awaiting a fight inside the ring. Royal and Wilkins took turns trying to guage how serious Biggs was approaching the match and discovered that their opponent was most definitely all in. It took nearly a half hour for the All Stars to capitalize on a double-team opportunity, but they did chalk up a pinfall win in the record book.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemptions' Michael McAllister and Nick Richards were out next to defend against the team of Number Man and Corporate Number Dad. The masked accountant duo showed up game but were unable to use their incredible math abilities to help figure a way to win the tag titles, falling to the champions by pinfall. That's when Team BitDon arrived.
DOnald J. BitDon, Otto Schwanz and Khan O'Kelly hit the ring and with the house mic, the CEO demanded the champions defend against them. After trading a few barbs, the champions agreed and the bell was rang. The Wrestling Machine hit the ring like a tornado and eventually yeilded the canvas to his partner BitDon, who kept adding value to his own team's effort, compounded daily. With the sum of Schwanz impacts and BitDon boots adding up astronomically, turned the tide and paid off with a pinfall win to bring the tag titles to Team BitDon.
The main event kicked off with the introduction of challenger Cain Justice and CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee. The student v. teacher battle unfolded in real time, in both mercurial and painful reality with the teacher ruling the classroom and the student surviving and advancing to the next lesson. Trevor Lee showed the student a few things he'd not taught him and Cain Justice actually turned the very same moves against him as the match progressed. A half hour in and both are showing signs of the wear and tear of the contest and by the hour mark, Trevor Lee is encouraging Cain Justice to get back to his feet and "fight some more". Cain Justice did. Time after time.
At one hour, fourteen minutes and 19 seconds referee Redd Jones called for the bell declaring Cain Justice could no longer defend himself, signifying Trevor Lee the winner and champion. Trevor bellowed out that if Cain could get back to his feet, he'd continue the match with the belt on the line. Cain returned to his feet and the match resumed. Less than thirty seconds later, Trevor Lee pinned his protege to retain the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title with the entire roster surrounding the ring. Lee collapsed to his knees in one corner and Justice crumpled on the match across the ring. PWI President William L. Cross hit the ring with the house mic and immediately went to Cain Justice to tell him that HE is the future of CWF, not to hang his head, he'd went an hour fifteen with Trevor Lee.
Lee took that opportunity to surrender the title back to Cross, leaving the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Championship officially Vacant as he returns to the WWE.
Everything that followed before the event broke up was both incredible and heartfelt. Emotions surfaced and stories began being shared. The fans did NOT want to leave even after more than an hour after the final bell and nearly 1 AM Trevor is still in the lobby talking to fans and signing autographs for the fans wishing him well on his new adventure in the world of the WWE.
