Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
The fans chose the challenger for the first bout of CWF BATTLE BOWL 2017, picking Otto Schwanz to challenge CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews with the title and a spot in the Battle Bowl main event on the line. Andrews continued his streak of successful title defenses and earned a spot in the main event by pinfall.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe joined Schwanz in the ring and announced that Otto was also HIS tag team partner, which was overturned quickly by management, who had a fan select his partner, "Handsome" Mitch Connor at random. Sharpe and Connor did NOT mesh as a team, especially with Connor refusing to partake in violence against a female, which helped the Fury Of Him and Sis advance to Battle Bowl by pinfall.
Dirty Daddy was introduced and then his fan-chosen singles opponent "Ace" Arik Royal. A hard-hitting bout broke out with the both men getting big shots in on the other. Royal survived and advanced to Battle Bowl by pinfall over the game "veteran" Dirty Daddy.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs and Mecha Mercenary were introduced and then fans chose their championship challengers, the team of Timmy Danger and Nick Richards. The champions earned their way into Battle Bowl and retained their titles with a pinfall win over the CWF veteran Richards and newcomer Danger.
Coach Gemini presented All Star Roy Wilkins for the evening's featured Scientific Match and the fans drew Movie Maker Myk as his opponent. The rules were explained and the two wowed the fans with their actual wrestling skills before Wilkins earned a spot in Battle Bowl by pinfall.
Captains from six-man tag action were introduced next, with RGL Champion Cain Justice facing off against Snooty Foxx. Fans drew "Party Starter" Keith Mac and newcomer Luke Grimes as teammates for Justice and Russian Vlad Boleshav and "Creepy" Cecil Scott rounded out Team Snooty. Foxx, Boleshav and Scott got a measure of revenge on cocky Cain Justice, eliminating him from Battle Bowl by winning the bout by pinfall.
Ten competitors climbed through the ropes, after Cecil Scott gave up his spot in the main event to Nick Richards, and the over-the-top-rope Battle Bowl main event began. Every winner from the previous matches, and Richards, went to war for the right to represent CWF Mid Atlantic in August's Scenic City Invitational in Chattanooga TN. The Soviet's representative Boleshav was the first eliminated, followed surprisingly by the team of Him and Sis. The All Stars joined forces and were pretty much neutralized by the Sandwich Squad until Mecha's eye injury slowed the robot down. The TV Champion was eliminated, followed by popular Snooty Foxx, leaving only the tag champions, the All Stars and Nick Richards in play.
The All Stars were celebrating the elimination of the Sandwich Squad's Biggs over the top ropes seconds before Roy Wilkins found himself on the floor staring up at the ring, himself eliminated from Battle Bowl. Nick Richards avoided the rage of Royal for a few moments and watched as the "Ace" eliminates Mecha Mercenary from the bout. Reinforcing himself for the final battle, Richards soon found himself eliminated with Arik Royal, Coach Gemini and Jerry Carey celebrating the All Star victory.
