The CWF RISING GENERATION LEAGUE "ICE BOWL" kicked off with singles action pitting Ivy Leaguer Griff Garrison against Marcus Cross. In a fast-paced battle, the fans got behind Cross and helped him use their boost in momentum to stay ahead of Garrison and get a pinfall win.
Tag team action was out next with the Millennials' Garrett Coleman and Chance Rizer taking on Michael "the Fury" McAllister and Nick Richards. A hard-hitting fight erupted and both teams showed their skills in trying to take out the other. CWF vets Richards and McAllister defeated the Millennials by pinfall.
Donnie Dollar$ was up next to take on Dirty Daddy in singles action. Fresh off of his RGL title loss at Battlecade X8, Dirty finds himself face-to-face with another one of the area's "big" men. Dirty Daddy started strong but seemed not to do much damage to Dollar$, who turned things around for a pinfall win.
"Pitbull" Steven Idol returned to the Sportatorium ring to find the masked Metallico across the ring from him for scheduled singles action. The masked man started fast but was soon under the thumb of the ground and pound method practiced by Idol. The Pitbull enjoyed punishing his opponent for a while before ending the bout with a pinfall win.
Cain Justice entered to do battle with fan favorite Cam Carter in singles action. Carter waited out Justice's early clowning with the fans and went to it with the cocky youngster. Cain Justice turned the battle around with his feet, twisting the shoulder of Cam Carter violently on the canvas. Carter spent the rest of the bout with a nearly unusable arm and Justce was able to use that to force him to submit to keep from having more damage done.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered the ring before Carter could exit and went off on the house mic. Carter, still smarting from his match, decided to shut Sharpe up with a back kick to the head. Sharpe had nothing more to say.
All Star Mace Li was out to take on Snooty Foxx in singles action. The "Most Honorable One" Li played the hit and run card, doing damage and moving away before Foxx could retaliate in kind for the balance of the bout. When Snooty Foxx did finally get his hands on Mace Li, he sent him flying upside down into the turnbuckles with a release suplex, gaining control for a pinfall win.
Snooty Foxx was still in the ring when main event ring introductions began and found himself face to face with CWF Rising Generation League Champion Mike Mars as he made his entrance. Foxx backed away and Kool J was introduced as the first challenger for the new champion's title reign. Mars manhandled and rag-dolled Kool J at will, but Kool J kept coming back, he kept kicking out and refused to quit for the monsterous RGL champ.
As soon as Mike Mars realized Snooty Foxx was back at ringside, he turned his back on his crumpled opponent, who leapt into action! Kool J used an old fasioned school boy roll up to put the champion's broad shoulders to the canvas for the three count and secured his very first career title win. Kool J rolled out of the ring to the floor and stared as the referee brought him the RGL Championship belt. Still out of breath and hurting, Kool J exited the arena for his very first time as a champion.
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday January 13th for CWF New Year's Knockout 2018 and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com.
