"People still totally freak when I tell them that I stopped watching wrestling on television in 2001, the night Vince McMahon's face showed up on WCW's big screen to be exact. Everyone swears I need to know what's going on in WWE in order to put on a wrestling event. It hasn't stopped me yet, if I need inspiration I simply dig out my collection of wrestling tapes from the 80's and 90's, and yes, that includes WWF, WCW, WCCW, UWF, and the rest of the alphabet soup that makes up today's wrestling. - Randy "Randolph" Hedrick

A packed house welcomed the Young Lions of the Mid Atlantic's pro wrestling training centers for the first-ever Rising Generation League SuperShow, STEP IN THE ARENA. Dozens of talented young competitors arrived for an advertised RGL Title Battle Royal and the card was expanded to nine big bouts before the bell rang to begin the event.

CWF Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice was out first to take on the challenge of Montana Black. Black manhandled the new champion for much of the bout but eventually tapped when Justice tied him in a knot.

Patrick Scott nailed Ian Maxwell in the face with a boot to win an enteraining high-speed four-way bout that also showed off the skills of Jacob Ryan and Cam Carter.

Nick Richards survived Ethan Alexander Sharpe's assault on his senses and wrestling ability before winning the bout by pinfall.

Mike Mars entered for a singles tilt against one half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions, Mecha Mercenary. The big man neutralized some of Mecha's advantage for a while, until the mechanical monster decided it was time to EAT!

Three-way tag team action ensued with the team of Otto Schwanz & Donnie Dollar$ w/Ethan Sharpe taking a convincing pinfall win over the teams of Geoff Bravo & Vinny Cenzo and Malaki Matthews & "Party Starter" Keith Mac.

All Star Roy Wilkins defeated Dirty Daddy by pinfall in singles action with only limited involvement by Coach Gemini on the floor at ringside.

The advertized battle royal was held up for a moment by CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews, who, agreeing with CWF management, agrees to take on the winner of the battle royal with the TV title on the line.

Tahir Jones survived a thirty-man stampede from both locker rooms to win the shot at the TV Title. Unfortunately for him, Aric Andrews attacked him immediately and the referee signaled for the bell. Jones put up a fight but was overwhelmed by Andrews after the earlier thirty-man melee.

"Southern Savior" John Skyler entered to take on Snooty Foxx in main event singles action. Foxx began fast but Skyler showed him the brakes and began focusing on keeping the bigger Foxx on the canvas to take his size advantage away. Skyler wins the match by pinfall and Foxx attacks again after the referee exits the arena. Dirty Daddy hits the ring and makes the three-count after Snooty Foxx pinned John Skyler and the crowd erupts.

Gibsonville, NC

01.21.17

Dirty Daddy defeated Mance Warner by pinfall in a grudge match to settle an issue rumored to date back decades between the two journeymen.

Otto Schwanz w/Ethan Sharpe & "White" Mike Jordan defeated Joey Rogers with an assist from Mike after Sharpe had berated him to be more like Otto.

Donnie Dollar$ defeated "Have Mercy" Percy Davis. After the bout, Dollar$ was confronted by his former partner Mitch Connor who was infuriated after Dollar$ stabbed him in the back at Battlecade, but Dollar$ walked away from Connor's challenge for a fight.

Xsiris v. Smith Garrett never got started as Garrett attacked Xsiris before the bell just as X had done to him at Battlecade and they brawled all over the arena for several minutes until X fled the scene.

Nick Richards defeated Tripp Cassidy by count-out. Throughout the match, Cassidy kept trying to goad Richards into a fight while Richards remained steadfast in trying to wrestle by the rules. Once the fight finally broke out, with the referee's count at 9, Richards dove into the ring to secure the victory rather than continue to brawl. After the bout Richards gave an impassioned speech about reinventing himself as a pure wrestler and vowed to challenge Trevor Lee for the Mid-Atlantic Championship once he feels he's ready.

CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews fought challenger Snooty Foxx to a ten minute time-limit draw. Andrews retains the title by rule. After the bout, Andrews expressed being fed up with his recent slate of title defenses and with matchmaker Brad Stutts. Andrews insisted on the opportunity to make his own matches and Stutts finally relented saying he was tired of the constant complaining and was washing his hands of Andrews. Stutts went on to inform the champion that from here on out, Stutts won't pick Andrews title challengers -- the fans will!

PWI International Ultra J Crown Champion Chet Sterling defeated CWF Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice in the "Battle for the Future" between two of the Mid-Atlantic's brightest rising stars.

Arik "Ace" Royal and Roy Wilkins survived Tag-Team Apocalypto to earn the right to represent CWF Mid Atlantic in the upcoming OMEGA Tag-Team Championship bout. Order of elimination in the Apocalypto went as follows: Airtime Rockers defeated Number Man & Kool Jay; "White" Mike Jordan & Ethan Sharpe defeated the Airtime Rockers; Sis & the Fury Of Him defeated Chris "TNT" Taylor & Wes Rogers; Beau Crockett & "Innocent" Isaiah Santero defeated Sis & "Him"; Crockett & Santero defeated Jordan & Sharpe; Crockett & Santero defeated Shawn Kemp & Johnathon Wolf representing IWA Mid South; Cain Justince & James Ryan defeated Crockett & Santero; Snooty Foxx & Dirty Daddy defeated Justice & Ryan; Zane & Dave Dawson defeted Snooty & Dirty; Mecha Mercenary & Aaron Biggs defeated Zane & Dave Dawson to seemingly win the bout until Coach Gemini appeared, reminding fans that he'd promised at Battlecade to have a team to challenge for the OMEGA championship. The Sportatorium was stunned when Roy Wilkins & Arik Royal hit the scene attacking Mecha & Biggs. The already eliminated Dawsons joined in for a 4 on 2 attack that ended when Royal and Wilkins both dogpiled on top of Mecha for the final fall AFTER Dave Dawson had stunned him with a taser. When questioned after the pinfall if he had signed Arik Royal to the All Stars, Coach Gemini clarified that Royal was still a free agent but that Coach has signed on as his "consultant" on a match-by-match basis.

As announced to the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium crowd tonight, the main event on Sunday January 29th at the OMEGA Bowl will be a triple threat tag-team bout for the OMEGA Tag-Team Championship with teams representing CWF Mid-Atlantic, OMEGA and Impact Wrestling. With Apocalypto completed and OMEGA having named their representatives earlier this weekend, the match is set for Sunday January 29th at the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium:

THE EXTREME HORSEMEN, JOHN SKYLER and C.W. ANDERSON representing OMEGA vs. ARIK "ACE" ROYAL and ROY WILKINS representing CWF Mid-Atlantic vs. BROKEN MATT HARDY and BROTHER NERO representing Impact Wrestling

Tickets for the OMEGA Bowl are moving at a record pace, if you want to join us Sunday January 29th it is strongly recommended that you get your tickets in advance as soon as possible at http://cwf247.ecwid.com before they are gone!

CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Mecha Mercenary and Aaron Biggs of Sandwich Squad defeated Ethan Alexander Sharpe and his life coach Dr. Daniel C. Rockingham of MoneyBall to retain the titles. After the bout, Mecha was confronted by an unmasked Michael McAllister who respectfully asked Biggs to bow out so the he and Mecha could reform their championship team for the Kernodle Brothers Cup Tag-Team Tournament. Mecha declined the offer, saying McAllister had made his choice and sided with Sis years ago, effectively ending their partnership. Sis then burst onto the scene, putting the mask back on McAllister's face which seemed to trigger a transformation of sorts. It seemed that donning the mask and being influenced by Sis sent McAllister into a frenzy.

Sis and the Fury of Him (McAllister) fought Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx of So Time to a wild double disqualification when referee Kevin Pierce lost control of the combatants and threw the match out. Security had to separate all four.

Otto Schwanz w/Ethan Alexander Sharpe defeated the "7 Foot Savage" P.B. Smooth to advance to the Six Pack Challenge for the CWF Mid Atlantic Championship.

CWF's Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice defeated "the Bone Collector" Dominic Garrini by submission to the Twist Ending to retain the championship and advance to the Six Pack Challenge for the Mid Atlantic Championship in a match that tore the house down and got a standing ovation.

CWF Worldwide Television Champion Aric Andrews defeated Kool J of the CWF Mid-Atlantic Dojo after Kool J's name was drawn randomly by a ringside fan to both retain the title and advance to the Six Pack Challenge for the Mid Atlantic Championship.

Smith Garrett defeated Xsiris by pinfall to advance to the Six Pack Challenge for the CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Title.

"Ace" Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins w/Coach Gemini and Jerry Carey defeated Nick Richards & PWI Ultra-J Crown Champion Chet Sterling to qualify for the Kernodle Brothers Cup Tag Team Tournament.

CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee defeated CWF Worldwide Television Champion Aric Andrews, Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice, Chip Day, Otto Schwanz and Smith Garrett to survive the Six Pack Challenge and retain the title.

After the bout, Trevor gave an impassioned speech to the crowd about having the best matches of his career at CWF Mid Atlantic until he was again confronted by Brad Attitude and subsequently attacked by Royal and Wilkins. With the champion down, Attitude, Royal and Wilkins seemed to form a union and toasted over the fallen champion.

In response to the attack, CWF officials have mandated that the main event for #CWFWorldwide episode 100 on Saturday March 11 will be Attitude, Royal and Wilkins vs. Trevor Lee and partners of his choice. Should Attitude, Royal or Wilkins fail to appear they will be locked out of future title shots!

:::Steps up onto the soapbox:::

Stardate: 06.10.16 2:15 pm

Cody Rhodes made a hand-written list of things-to-do that went viral in the pro wrestling community a couple of weeks ago. A list of places to go, people to wrestle and eyebrows all around the world went up. My eyebrows went up when I saw the name Trevor Lee about midway down the list.

Looking at the interwebs today and EVERYBODY is making lists of things they want to witness, accomplish or participate in. Thought briefly about what my current list would look like and couldn't think of but a couple of things (which I will NOT share here), so I'm going in a different direction with my list. A list of people, companies, matches, personal accomplishments and friends that I have had the good fortune to have already got under my proverbial belt.

Buckle up, Spanky! Here goes, in no particular order:

Ringside for CMLL event. Yup. I got to do TWO of them!

Ringside for TNA event. OK, it was actually a UWF event, but the card was stacked!

Johnny Weaver. Met my childhood hero dozens of times thanks to CWF Mid Atlantic.

Nikita Koloff. The photo-op was PRICELESS!

Fabulous Freebirds. The team of Michael "P.S." Hayes & Jimmy "Jam" Garvin appeared with ACW. Michael stood behind me and made cracks through the curtain the whole night.

Sara Del Ray v. Mike Quackenbush. Amazing. Totally amazing.

Kana (WWE's Asuka). Beautiful talented young woman who is undefeated against Godzilla!

Suffered Beatdown/Haircut. Yup. In 2010 at the hands of the Aftermath.

"Hands of Stone" Ron Garvin. Quality guy, always looked great.

"Chief" Wahoo McDaniel. My very first television interview was with the Chief. Learned so much from this two-sport legend. I consider him my first mentor in the business.

"Russian Bear" Ivan Koloff. Beautiful gentleman with a big heart.

Jake "the Snake" Roberts. He was the first wrestler I ever encountered that travelled with a computer system, which he'd set up in a corner of the locker room.

"Pistol" Pez Whatley. Love this man. He called me a "long-haired raggedy roody-poo" on a live mic!

"Beautiful" Bobby Eaton. A most friendly good ol' southern boy that can fly like an eagle. Great guy.

"Wild Eyed Southern Boy" Tracy Smothers. A real friend. He once did an almost 25 minute promo before challenging Ric Converse, looked right at me and says into the mic "I'm too blowed up to wrestle now, dammit Converse! Just bring me the belt and I'll leave!"

The Iron Sheik. I spent an entire day driving him around at a dragstrip wrestling show. He's the real, bubba.

"Nature Boy" Ric Flair. I HAVE worked on a show the the legend!

David Flair. Quiet young man, one of the most humble young guys I'd ever met.

Reid Flair. Outgoing talented natural mat wrestler. Never saw him outside of the ring without a smile on his face.

"Handsome" Jimmy Valiant. Second mentor, one of the greatest guys ever. And yes, I personally witnessed Valiant handing the "Boogie Woogie Man" name to Rob McBride, ya'll. I saw it with my own eyes.

Amber O'Neal (current NWA Womens World Champion). Fortunate to know the Bullet Babe before she became a star. A sweet lady that is enjoying the fruits of hard work, dedication and a beautiful smile.

CWF BattleCade. Yup. I've been there for every one of them. Same with the Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament. And people wonder why I've sat tight at CWF Mid Atlantic? Come on, ya'll!

Lizard Lick. Yup, we packed Riders in the Country with Ron, Amy, Bobby & Big Juicy INVOLVED in eight man tag main event at Rider's with RCW.

RCW Drunkhouse Stampede. Yup. Did it. No, I didn't wrestle in it, but I did get slobbering drunk off of a bottle of Jack Daniels that was purchased for the match. I think they cut my mic off that night?

I reserve the right to make additions to this list from time-to-time and to continue having fun being a part of the crazy crazy pro wrestling business. If I re-read it one more time I'm sure it'll grow again as I continue to think of more worthy entries. OK. I'll stop now. Take care folks!

See you at ringside!
