A special video presentation to honor the memory of our friend Tracy Caddell played before the National Anthem and beginning of CWF Storm Warning.
For the second straight year, ESPN was on hand to chronicle the 2018 SEC Battle Royal for their pre-season college football preview show. I will NOT give away their predicted results at this time, but I will report that "Party Starter" Keith Mack won it all!
Tag Team action was up next as a battle of big men filled the ring. Montana Black and Snooty Foxx were introduced first to take on the new team of "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Mike Mars. The four beat each other like money or family was involved, trading licks back and forth until someone flinched. The Mars/Biggs team exited with a pinfall win, helping up Snooty Foxx who found himself abandoned by his tag team partner late in the bout.
One of two remaining spots in the 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals was on the line next as Donnie BitDon faced off against CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champion Corruption's Cain Justice, who was accompanied to the ring by partner Ethan Sharpe. BitDon had Justice backing up but when the moment was right, he clamped down on the arm of the big man on the canvas rolled over and forced a submission to advance. After Corruption exited, ringside camera Khan O'Kelly entered the ring and quit his job with CWF Mid-Atlantic mid-event, signing on with the BitDon Corporation.
Aric Andrews entered next to take on "Party Starter" Keith Mack in singles action and quickly took control of the popular party personality inside of the squared circle. Andrews turned out the lights and declared the party to be over, exiting the arena with a convincing pinfall victory.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered next, seconded by Cain Justice, to take on Redemption's Michael McAllister in singles action. PWI President William L. Cross and Redemption's Nick Richards made their way to ringside during intros and remained in the McAllister corner. The Fury activated upon the bell and went ballistic early. After interference from the outside, the match evened out but then BOTH sides had help from the outside. Michael McAllister kept his wits in a crazy situation and pinned Sharpe for the win.
CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay hit the ring with the house mic and demanded a tag title bout against Corruption with Michael McAllister as his partner before the smoke cleared. The fans approved of the new team, McAllister agreed and the match was signed.
Young high-flyer KL3 was introduced next to challenge RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay for his title and sheriff's badge. The fan favorite Cowboy rode off into the sunset after barely breaking a sweat, defeating KL3 in just over two minutes by pinfall to retain his title.
The last opening in the 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals was up for grabs between veteran Otto Wrestling Machine and PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Cam Carter. The monster versus the young skywalker proved to be a quite physical affair with the Machine making point after point with his young opponent. Time after time Otto punished Carter, with everything from snap suplexes to head butts, and to his credit, Cam Carter kept coming back, kept getting back up. His resilience and wind had to help but his skill set is what finally propelled the Ultra-J champ into the 2018 Weaver Cup Finals by pinfall.
C.L. Party hit the ring to introduce Chet Sterling, and exited as Sterling took the mic to announce he wanted his buddy Trevor Lee in the ring for the announcement he'd asked to make. The CWF Mid-Atlantic Double Crown Champion hit the ring, still somewhat subdued over a recent personal loss, and Chet told the world that he wants to challenge his friend for the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title on the CWF 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals event. Trevor Lee quietly accepted and asked Sterling to remain in his corner for the main event CWF Worldwide Television Title bout.
All Star Mace Li was drawn from the bucket and entered the arena with Jarry Carey, Roy Wilkins and "Ace" Arik Royal to take on Trevor Lee. Sixteen seconds into the main event, the referee called for the bell AND the house mic. Referee Redd Jones threw out the main event for outside interference from the All Stars and ordered them to remain in the arena for tag team action because the "fans deserve to see more". Handicap tag team action kicked off with three of the All Stars entered into the match against Sterling and Lee.
The two teams wore each other out with the Trevor Lee and Chet Sterling team coming out on top by pinfall. They flat out battled, fought, brawled and kicked from bell to bell with the tide of battle turning several times along the way. The fans in the Sportatorium and watching live on Twitch were treated to well over twenty minutes of conflict in an unscheduled makeshift main event, with many questions left to be answered in two weeks at the CWF 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals at the Sportatorium!

"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
Corruption Attacks Early And Often To Defeat CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemption At CWF OH WHAT A SUMMER!

1001 Springwood Ave.
Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Cain Justice ran in and attacked CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team champions Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards during the special Twitch Pre-Show event, forcing the remainder of the pre-show program to be pre-empted.
Second round 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action kicked off CWF OH WHAT A SUMMER with big Snooty Foxx squaring off against cagey veteran "Southern Savior" John Skyler. The Southern Savior started strong and fast, confounding the powerful Foxx, eventually sending him to the canvas in pain. Foxx refused to quit, kept coming back and mounted a furious comeback only to be thwarted in the end with Skyler staying alive in the Weaver Cup Tournament with a pinfall win.
Three-way one fall tag team action was introduced with Otto Wrestling Machine and Donnie BitDon taking on Los Chicanos and the team of "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs & PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Cam Carter. A slobberknocker erupted between Otto/Donnie and Biggs/Carter until Los Chicanos decided they had sat on the sidelines long enough and joined the fray. After nearly a quarter hour of battle, the Rampaging Beast and the Skywalker left with their hands raised after a pinfall victory.
Aric Andrews entered next to take on Chet Sterling in singles grudge action. Andrews took stock of Sterling early in the bout and then kicked into overdrive when he began seeing results in his attacks on his opponent. Sterling was on the verge of collapse but caught his breath long enough to turn the match 180 degrees and win by pinfall.
Second round 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action continued with the introduction of the only two-time Weaver Cup Champion in history All Star "Ace" Arik Royal and his opponent CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. Royal taunted Kool Jay early over the difference in their size, having a laugh at the smaller man's stature until the Cowboy turned on the afterburners and went on the offense after withstanding a brutal beating. Like the virtual David, "Cowboy" Kool Jay pulled off a major upset, pinning Royal cleanly in the center of the ring to remain alive in the 2018 Weaver Tournament.
Bellamy Koga returned to the ring to take on big Mike Mars in singles action. Koga, who has shown marked improvement in recent months, stepped up and went toe-to-toe with one of the current "monsters of the midway" in the Mid-Atlantic area. Mars actually found himself backing up for a moment before he turned the tide of the match with a single clothesline that turned big Koga inside out. Mike Mars took a quick pinfall win over impressive Bellamy Koga and turned to find All Star Roy Wilkins entering the ring with a mic.
Wilkins made Mars an offer he couldn't refuse, offering him a roster spot with the All Stars. Upon refusal, the All Stars attacked Mike Mars three on one until "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs ran in to even the score. Biggs and Mars sent the All Stars running out of the arena and finally turned to each other and shook hands. Tag team wrestling in the Mid-Atlantic area may not have felt this kind of buzz in a long time should they team up in earnest.
Using a random drawing, All Star Mace Li was chosen to take on CWF Double Crown Champion Trevor Lee who was contracted to defend his CWF Worldwide Television Championship. Li stepped through the ropes into a tornado, but did get his shots in between moments of torment and pain inflicted by the dual champion. The traditional ten minute television championship time limit was not a factor with Trevor Lee pinning Mace Li in under eight minutes to secure the title.
Main event introductions saw challengers Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan A. Sharpe enter and then attacked CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister before they could get through the ring ropes. Several minutes of fist-fighting ensued on the floor before two men got into the ring triggering the referee to begin the match in earnest. Minutes into the match, champion Nick Richards was obviously favoring an injured wing and Corruption singled him out and tortured him relentlessly. After long minutes of being beat upon, Richards legally tagged in McAllister who came in and roared through both members of Corruption like a force of nature. Being in tag team mode, however, a quick tag to bring Richards back into the bout was the beginning of the end with an unexpected title change taking place after a pinfall win.
CWF Mid Atlantic returns to live action Saturday August 11th at 7:30pm at Gibsonville NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium for a full card of hard-hitting pro wrestling action! Tickets now at cwftickets.com!

Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
CWF Mid Atlantic kicked off it's second-ever Free Live-Stream on Twitch, CWF Rising Generation League SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF, with some words from Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe who stuck around to compete in singles action against big Bellamy Koga after his spiel in the night's opening bout. Koga has kicked up his offensive game, possibly by just adding ringboots to his ring attire, and his kicks are to be avoided at all costs. This former MMA competitor surprised the confident Sharpe by standing his ground and attacking at every opportunity. Sharpe was rocked by a kick to the head, but partner Cain Justice was able to conveniently help break the referee's count by engaging with Bellamy Koga himself. The Corruption combination withstood the Koga storm and exited with a pinfall win after Sharpe connected on a stiff uppercut to the chin.
Donnie BitDon was then introduced and he entered with a house mic to explain a little about the crypto-currency craze and how you can get in on the bottom floor with his help. He then called for an opponent, basically putting his money where his mouth is, and young Chris "TNT" Taylor answered the challenge. The bell sounded for singles action and the hot youngster started off slightly shakey and then hit his stride. BitDon took some punishment but continued to advance on his less experienced opponent, ending the match by a convincing pinfall over the popular "TNT".
Snooty Foxx was introduced for First-Round 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action and his opponent Aric Andrews never showed. The referee ruled that Foxx would advance into the Second Round by forfeit and Corruption's Cain Justice stormed to the ring. Demanding a "non-Weaver Cup match" Justice was given a quick affirmative to get the match started by Snooty Foxx. Justice took his time before ever locking up in earnest, basically touring the grandstands and having conversations with fans until he decided to go to work. Both competitors displayed exactly how they felt about the other and it showed as the pounded on each other like a proverbial "red-headed step-child". Snooty Foxx finally had enough and sent Ethan Sharpe flying to the floor before turning and finishing off Cain Justice with a convincing pinfall and a moment of satisfaction.
All Star "Too Cool" Mace Li, accompanied by "Ace" Arik Royal, entered next for First-Round 2018 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action to take on the hugely popular CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. Royal coached, distracted and even got involved physicially but the Chinese All Star was unable to finish off the Cowboy. The damage was inflicted and Kool Jay seemed to be on defense, at times backing up instead of his usual style of going right at an opponent. The Sheriff got a second wind and fired up, changing the outlook of the bout with a series of dropkicks that left Li looking quite dizzy before advancing to the Second Round of the 2018 Weaver Cup Tournament with a pinfall win.
"Cowboy" Kool Jay never had a chance to catch his breath before Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan Sharpe ran in and attacked the exhausted RGL Champion. Mace Li joined in as Arik Royal played lookout, but was shocked to find CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards running in to even the score. The tag champs helped the battered RGL Champion to the corner as a 4-on-3 tag match was eventually challenged and accepted, pitting Corruption and the All Stars against Redemption and the Cowboy.
When the impromptu main event's bell rang, "Cowboy" Kool Jay was physically unable to stand on the ring apron, but Redemption seemed not to care until the RGL Champ entered with fire in his eyes. The numbers game didn't work out even with a decided advantage for the All Stars/Corruption team, as the champions all battled at the top of their game, a feat for the RGL Champion who had already endured an almost 20 minute long Weaver Cup match. The team a man short, Kool Jay, Nick Richards and Michael McAllister took the duke to the roar of the crowd over the Corrupted All Stars, and the popular Cowboy soon rode off into the sunset once again. And that's the way it happened that night at the CW-Bar-F Ranch and Sportatorium. Oh, and we ate a lot of neckbone!

CWF SUMMER BASH Heats Up Chapel Hill NC With Four Titles On The Line In Three Huge Matches!
A Special Photo Extra!
Hargraves Community Center
Chapel Hill, NC
A hot building full of wrestling fans converged on Chapel Hill NC's Hargraves Community Center for CWF Mid Atlantic's return with SUMMER BASH! Action kicked off with the Rising Generation League Championship on the line as champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay steps into the ring to second challenge from "Pitbull" Steven Idol. Idol's ground and pound busted open the RGL champion's mouth early in the match, but didn't stop him from showing his recuparative powers moments later regaining control of the match and retain his title once again by pinfall over the hard-hitting Idol.
Donnie BitDon and All Star Mace Li entered next for scheduled tag team action, with only "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs answering the bell after explaining he never found a tag partner. Biggs said he was still wrestling and the match appeared to be a 2-on-1 brawl. Biggs showed out early but after several shots to the legs and knees, found himself barely standing when big Mike Mars enters the arena and slowly climbs to the ring apron in Biggs' corner. Biggs is almost whipped into his own corner, close enough for Mars to reach across and make a legal tag. The big man came in like a tornado and tossed his opponents like single-wide mobile homes around the ring. The referee counted the three-count and the crowd roared. Biggs tried once again to extend a hand to Mars following the duke, but Mars turned his back and stormed out of the ring.
Billed as a Battle Of The Weaver Cup Champions, current champion Chet Sterling stepped up to take on two-time champion "Ace" Arik Royal in singles action. Accompanied to the ring by Jarry Carey and Mace Li, no one mentioned the absence of Coach Gemini as the All Star began trying to ground Sterling. Characteristically, Sterling refused to quit and kept coming back until he swung the match momentum firmly in his direction finally ending the contest by pinfall.
The longest-reigning tag team champions in CWF history, the Dawson Brothers, got their championship rematch and entered to take on CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards to take home "their" titles. As expected, the Dawsons came on strong, perhaps not as expected, Redemption responded in kind. Determined to prove winning the titles was not a fluke, McAllister and Richards seemed to be on the offensive much of the bout, and ended the match by pinfall to retain the titles in convincing fashion over the intimidating Dave and Zane Dawson.
Two titles were on the line in the next bout as CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion and CWF Worldwide Television Champion Trevor Lee put both belts on the line against "Golden Boy" Aric Andrews. Andrews notched up his offense compared to his previous title loss to Trevor Lee, but still found himself often on the canvas with the Double Crown Champion tormenting an arm or leg. Trevor Lee's brand of targeted torment took it's toll once again on Aric Andrews and forced him to submit after fifteen and a half minutes.
Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe and Cain Justice paraded around the ring prior to their main event tag match against Shane "Hurricane" Helms and hometown hero Snooty Foxx and his injured partner Dirty Daddy, but were serious as the bell rang. Justice was schooled first by the Hurricane with Sharpe putting his movement in reverse after stepping through the ropes with one of the sport's best-known stars. Snooty Foxx brought the hometown momentum with him when he stepped into the ring and began to clean house along side of "Sugar" Shane Helms. Dirty Daddy was attacked on the floor and the referee was KO'd late in the match, forcing a replacement to make his way to the ring for the final decision. Corruption as a unit withstood a quarter of an hour of battle against the Foxx/Helms team before dropping the match by pinfall to a roar.

Stardate: 05.22.18 8:05 pm
Got a few moments, weeks actually, to relax and ponder the upcoming summer of hot wrestling action that's about to be upon us. CWF Mid Atlantic's Summer Blockbuster ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2018 arrives on Saturday June 9th at the Sportatorium. The Rising Generation League, the hottest little show in the Carolinas, returns on June 2nd at the Sportatorium as well.
Hats off to Jimmy Harris for putting on another afternoon of matches for Alamance County (NC) disabled veterans. The summer episode, BCW STARS AND STRIKES, pulled in another $850.00 for the veterans and BCW will return on Sunday Nov. 11th for the 2nd Annual Relay For Life Benefit at the Positive Attitude Youth Center in Burlington NC.
BCW gives me the opportunity to also touch base with some old friends who I don't see as often as I'd like, most notable, the real-life pro wrestling icon J-Money and my other little brother Will B. Smooth, the $outh$ide Playas. We have a long history and they are both dear friends, as is J's wife and full-grown kids. Tre-G has been involved with the BCW experience for about a year now, he's one of the guys from way back, a regular in the Roxboro area regardless of the banner we ran under, and it's great working on events with him again.
Another quality young man I enjoy watching in the ring and speaking to when time permits is my favorite Chikara performer Sugar Dunkerton. He gets it, people. I think he was on the road with the Gymnasty Boys, "White" Mike Jordan and Timmy Lou Retton, another couple of guys I enjoy watching in the ring a lot. Also, I didn't get the chance to speak with Chip Day, but yeah, another match, another impressed viewer. Pretty darn consistent in that, which is a benchmark in today's wrestling world. Quality performer. Pretty cool guy.
There is a very good possibility that most of you will want to wear sunglasses to summer events that I'm covering. For your own protection from my extremely white legs, as I'm sure that at some point I WILL don the shorts. You have been warned!
See you at ringside!
