Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
A vocal assembly of pro wrestling fans congregated at the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium for a night featuring the young lions of the sport, competitors with three years or less of ring experience. Of course, some veterans are invited to participate and the mix creates a near explosive night of action. CWF's Rising Generation League runs almost monthly and is a great deal for families with kids.
The night's action kicked off with tag team action as the duo of Donnie Dollar$ and Mike Mars entered to do battle with returning Bellamy Koga and new tag partner Leon Ruff. Koga, a barefoot competitor with educated feet, has had difficulties with previous partners and is making waves with the RGL fans in recent months. Ruff tagged in and played hit and run, but the tide changed when the Mars/Dollar$ team used a little veteran savvy and singled him out for extended punishment. Bellamy Koga and Leon Ruff found themselves on the wrong end of the decision after Mike Mars got the three count for the win.
Coach Gemini entered with "Most Honorable" All Star Mace Li, then exited for the commentary table as opponent Liam Gray was introduced. The debuting Gray was quickly accepted by the fans and went toe-to-toe with the Chinese All Star with the fans strong behind him. Mace Li used the floor to break Liam Gray's momentum and eventually got the shoulders of the impressive newcomer on the canvas for a pinfall win after using every trick in his book.
Newcomers James Bandy and Lee Johnson were introduced to take on So Time's Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx in tag team action. Bandy and Foxx collided early and the newcomer showed his skills against Dirty Daddy midway through the bout, separating him from Snooty Foxx in the far corner for much of the remainder of the match. Despite the constant pounding on Dirty Daddy, he did eventually make the tag and unleashed the human tornado that a rested Snooty Foxx can be. Foxx soon tagged Dirty back in at the Daddy's request and he started up the turnbuckles and resumed his career of flight. So Time held court and grounded Lee Johnson before taking the duke by pinfall over the game team of Bandy and Johnson.
The "Billy Mays of CWF" Ethan Alexander Sharpe was out next escorting Cain Justice to the ring for a little t-shirt hawking and eventually singles action against Redemption's Micheal McAllister, who was accompanied by Nick Richards. When the bell rang and Justice and McAllister went to war, Sharpe and Richards elected to remain at ringside, with Richards keeping an eye on Justice's second the whole bout. With the twenty minute time limit expiring, Sharpe helped a buddy out after Richards' ejection and Justice took a win by pinfall.
Main event Rising Generation League Championship action was introduced with #1 Contender "Pitbull" Steven Idol squaring off with popular champion Kool Jay. The challenger went into a serious ground and pound plan of action, keeping Kool Jay from flying and on the canvas where the bigger man may have a bit of an advantage. Kool Jay was thwarted on a couple of high-risk offensive moves and paid the price as the Pitbull entered bulldozer mode after the twenty minute time call. It's hard to call the last few minutes of the match as anything but Kool Jay getting a THIRD wind and hitting the top ropes to set the challenger on his heels. Kool Jay survived the impressive onslaught of "Pitbull" Steven Idol almost twenty-four minutes in a match that began with an attack on his person before the bell to retain his championship.
