A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
A bonus six-man lucha rules bout kicked off the night's action as Kyle Kaylor, A.J. Gray and "Have Mercy" Percy Davis defeated the team of Jonathon Wolfe, Shawn Kemp and Dale Patricks by pinfall in a fast-paced bout.
The Dirty Blondes' Mike Patrick and Leo Brian were up for the first match of the Kernodle Cup Tournament, drawing the current CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs & Mecha Mercenary. Mecha & Biggs advance to the second night with a pinfall win against quality opponents in a tough opening match.
The bizarre duo of The Fury Of Him and Sis were out next to take on Ethan Alexander Sharpe and "White" Mike Jordan in first-round Kernodle Cup action. Despite taking the wrong end of the beating, Sharpe and Jordan advance to the second night via pinfall.
Stokley Hathaway entered next, to present his Dream Team of #Real Joshua Cutshall and Tracer X, who drew Da Powah's Ian Maxwell and Big Time Yah for first-round opponents. Maxwell and Yah took the fight to Hathaway's team but came up short with the Dream Team advancing to the second night of competition by pinfall.
"Blue Eyed Devil" Tripp Cassidy and RGL Champion Cain Justice were up next to take on the team of the Insiders' Ace Perry and Slade Porter. Cassidy watched for much of the bout before inserting himself into the battle, helping his team to a submission win and a ticket into night two.
Brad Attitude then held up festivities with a few moments of self-promotion and loathing on Trevor Lee. After all of these years, I have no idea what's up with Mr. Attitude.
Coach Gemini entered with his All Star team of "Ace" Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins to take on "Handsome" Mitch Connor and Nick Richards in first-round Kernodle Cup action. Slight of hand and inspiration by the self-proclaimed "Greatest Coach of All Time" helped ease the All Stars into the second night of Kernodle Cup competition by pinfall.
So' Time's Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx hit the ring to await the unannounced "Team #16" and were shocked when the Dawson Brothers Dave and Zane hit the ring from the back door. A slobberknocker ensued, one part brawl, one part fight, ending in the biggest upset in recent tag team history with the young So' Time eliminating the veteran Dawsons by pinfall.
First round action continued with the Lynch Mob's Joey and Matt Lynch drawing the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful. A mat classic ensued, the kind of match you kind of hope never ends, with both teams fighting for an advantage from bell-to-bell. The Carnies grow their reputation after ref stoppage handed them the ticket to night two of the tournament. The Sportatorium fans did not let the Lynch brothers exit without expressing their desire for them to return again soon.
The final first round bout pitted Lee Valiant & CWF WorldWide TV Champion Aric Andrews against the popular Ugly Ducklings' Lance Lude and Rob Killjoy with Coach Mikey. Valiant and Andrews held court for much of the match, but those lucky duckers used a little added momentum from the crazed crowd to win via pinfall to advance to the Saturday night Finals.
