After a trip to the 90's CWF's first-ever 90's Night kicked off with singles action featuring the Notorious Number Man taking on veteral Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride in singles action. McBride was mostly unimpressed with the powerful 2018 Model Number Man, and took him to the canvas for a pinfall win in well under ten minutes.
C.L. Party was up next to interview Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan Sharpe. They immediately hijacked the interview with Cain screaming bloody murder at his partner about the disasters at the Weaver Cup Finals. They eventually exited the arena, still arguing on their way out.
Eight-man tag team action was up next, pitting the team of Donnie Dollar$, Otto Schwanz, All Star Mace Li and Aric Andrews taking on the team of "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs, "Headbanger" Mike Mars, Snooty Foxx and newcomer Blake Christian. A fast-moving brutal battle ensued with the seven "known" CWF stars involved getting most of the action in the first half of the match, leaving young Blake Christian fresh for his first tag into the bout. Christian made the most of the opportunity and displayed some high-flying excellence that resulted in the crowd chanting "Please Come Back" after the bout's conclusion. Dollar$, Schwanz, Li and Andrews too the pinfall win.
All Star Roy Wilkins and his entourage of All Stars, Jarry Carey, Mace Li and Arik "Ace" Royal, entered and called out newcomer "Fun Sized" Marko Stunt. The young grappler gamely hit the ring to answer the challenge and immediately began trying to roll up Wilkins for a three count after agreeing to take him on in singles competition. Stunt even tried bribery, but to no avail before Wilkins became somewhat serious in facing the man he called out earlier. With a little help from his friends, Wilkins stole a pinfall win over the visiting star.
Following the decision announcement, a figure left the bleachers and climbed through the ropes to confront the All Stars over their treatment of his young son during the match. About time when fans realized the man was a former multiple time Mid-Atlantic Tag Champion Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega, officials flooded the ring to keep the All Stars seperated from a very vocal Ortega until the ring was cleared.
Atlanta's Alan Angels entered the Sportatorium ring to challenge PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Cam Carter for the prestigious international junior heavyweight championship. The impressive visitor went straight to the face of the fan-favorite Carter, taking a page of the champion's playbook and wowing the fans with his abilities along the way. In a literal slobber-knocker, Cam Carter showed what he was made of by surviving the assault of the talented challenger, finally winning by pinfall to retain the championship.
Corruption's Ethan Sharpe and Cain Justice entered to challenge CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Blazing Saddles' Sheriff "Cowboy" Kool Jay and "Marshal" Michael McAllister in a title return match. Corruption, living up to their name, used a "spat" to lull the champions into losing their concentration. Despite Corruption's tactics and "plan", Blazing Saddles kept their heads in the match and withstood the onslaught until the Sheriff and the Marshal were finally able to capitalize on a mistake was made, with Kool Jay dropping out of the picture as Ethan Sharpe loaded up to kick him while being held by Cain Justice. Blazing Saddles ride off into the sunset with the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Titles in their saddle bags after a pinfall win.
The masked Corporate Number Dad was out next to take on the debuting CWF Dojo graduate, "TKO" Ted Ireland, Jr. in singles action. Dirty Daddy escorted the rookie to the ring and stayed in his corner for the entire match as the veteran hooded rule breaker broke out a variety of classic assaults and attacks on the rookie grappler. The Number Dad made several trips to the floor, basically every time Ireland began to show some momentum in the match. Ireland's eagerness worked in the masked man's favor in several crucial moments, allowing the Corporate Number Dad to get a late advantage, only to be dropped like a sack of flour to the canvas with a shot to the jaw from the rookie, who wins his first match by knockout.
The All Star entourage of Carey, Li, and Wilkins accompanied "Ace" Arik Royal to the ring for the main event shot at the PWI International Heavyweight Championship of "the 1st" Ric Converse. The referee cleared the ring area of the All Stars, sending them to the locker room before ringing the bell to begin the main event contest. A brutal war of attrition began with the tide turning in both directions as the war was waged. The two left it all on the canvas with Converse pinning the Ace just over thirty minutes, leaving both competitors gasping for breath on the canvas.
The All Stars chose that moment to return, attacking Converse and suddenly remembering that Roy Wilkins holds the CWF Golden Ticket. Before he could announce his intentions, commentator Smith Garrett jumped up from his table, grabbed a steel chair and cleared the ring. Screaming that he was sick and tired of All Stars always cheating to win, Garrett successfully cleared the ring of All Stars before they could invoke the right to the title shot.

"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
"Southern Savior" John Skyler Wins 15th Annual Weaver Cup Tournament; Blazing Saddles Upset Corruption To Win CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Titles; Trevor Lee V. Chet Sterling - An Instant Classic At the 2018 JOHNNY WEAVER MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT FINALS

"Cowboy" Kool Jay got clobbered with a guitar that he brought to the ring during intros after asking 2018 Weaver Cup opponent "Southern Savior" John Skyler to perform a song for him. The bell rang and Skyler began to dismantle the popular young sheriff with the big picture, seeing his name on the Weaver Cup Trophy as inspiration. The Cowboy put up a good fight and made a valiant run at the end, but was unable to withstand the relentless Skyler, who wins by pinfall.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Champions Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan Sharpe entered next for Justice to take on PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Cam Carter for the second spot in the tournament's final bout later in the night. Friction between the tag champions seemed to rise to the surface and an obvious double-team forced the ring official to eject Sharpe from the arena. Just as it seemed Justice would face Skyler later in the evening, Cam Carter used his incredible recuperative powers to will himself back into the match to advance to the Weaver Final later in the event by pinfall.
The All Stars Show followed, with Jarry Carey interviewing "Ace" Arik Royal inside the arena. After questions about titles and gold, PWI International Heavyweight Champion "the 1st" Ric Converse interrupted with a black cloth sack in hand and his baton in his back pocket. As four All Stars stood together, Converse got into the face of Royal and challenged him to face him for the title on September 8. The baton was merely waved, and the bag containing the "Big PWI Gold" championship belt left the ring with Converse as he made his exit.
With the All Stars' Roy Wilkins and Mace Li already at ringside following the Converse challenge, introductions began for the CWF Golden Ticket Battle Royal. The ring filled as the All Stars cowered on the floor at ringside and the bell was rang. Eliminations began to happen and after the bulk of the contenders were neutralized, Wilkins and Li dove into the fight, eliminating competitors. Li was eliminated by Donnie BitDon and BitDon was then eliminated by Mike Mars, who never saw Roy Wilkins coming from behind him to eliminate him and win the CWF Golden Ticket.
In bizarre circumstances from the previous week's Rising Generation League event, CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Ethan Sharpe and Cain Justice were out next to defend their titles against the Blazing Saddles team of CWF RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay and "Marshal" Michael McAllister due to a previous match's stipulations. The Corruption Method continued to work, eventually singling out one opponent and wearing him down, but the Sheriff used his moxy and found a way to tag in the fresh Marshal who was ready to distribute a little frontier justice of his own. The long arm of the law somehow found it in themselves to upset the champions by pinfall, leaving Corruption in turmoil and without titles. This also creates a rather unique situation in CWF Mid-Atlantic, with "Cowboy" Kool Jay winning his second title, making him the SECOND current CWF Double Crown Champion!
"Southern Savior" John Skyler and "Skywalker" Cam Carter entered the ring and began their personal battle to get their name inscribed on the Johnny Weaver Cup Trophy in the 2018 Weaver Tournament Final. The adjectives "amazing", "brutal", "physical" and yes, "personal" seemed to be the best description of the match between these two rising stars. It was a beautiful representation of the athletic physicality of wrestling competition between two gladiators from bell-to-bell. Skyler dished out punishment at a workman's pace and the Skywalker kept appearing to absorb everything the Southern Savior dished out. The match ebbed and flowed back and forth with the sum of the damage taken causing the Ultra-J Crown Champ to get pinned for the three-count by a suddenly talkative John Skyler.
After PWI President William L. Cross presented the Weaver Cup Trophy to the fifteenth annual tournament's champion, Skyler took the house mic and announced that finally, he has arrived. Who's to argue with this statement?
Chet Sterling stepped through the ropes to take on his best friend CWF Double Crown Champion Trevor Lee for the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title for the evening's main event and emotions were thick as the official called for the bell. Sterling, who is rarely tentative, was just a bit so with his friend early, but eventually after taking a licking from Lee, decided it was really ok to give some back. Sterling discovered he could actually inflict some level of pain on Lee, but also discovered that Trevor Lee tends to return any debt quickly and to the point. Both competitors survived an inferno, but Sterling was unable to wrestle away the Heavyweight Title from Lee, who won by pinfall and then helped up his friend up to make sure they were still good after their first war.

"Cowboy" Kool Jay, Marshal McAllister And Snooty The Kid Run Off The Corrupted Number Gang From The CW-Bar-F Ranch at CWF-RGL A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS!

Camera operator-turned-BitDon executive Khan O'Kelly was introduced to host commentary as CWF-RGL A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS kicked off. The first match began after the introduction of his mentor Donnie Bitdon and his singles opponent of the evening, Mike Mars. In a battle of the bulls, both men dug in and tried to push each other around with authority. Mars took an advantage after the ten minute mark but Khan O'Kelly left the commentary table and made his way to the ring, a perfect distraction for BitDon to make an unsavory save allowing a pinfall win over Mars.
An RGL ladies rematch was up next as Desy Dez squared off against Daisy Day for superiority of the squared circle. Desy tried to repeat her earlier success but Daisy seemed to rise to the occassion, breaking out new offensive weapons, including a mean drop-kick to the face of Dez on her knees. The women battled for nearly fifteen minutes before Daisy Day was able to secure a pinfall win over Desy Dez, with both women showing
A brand new Number Man debuted for singles action, drawing Redemption's Michael "the Fury" McAllister for his ring premier. A spirited battle ensued with the rookie showing off both his physique and the skills he's learned at the CWF Dojo to a veteran Dojo graduate in a very competitive outing. As the match looked to be tilting toward McAllister, Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe rose from the commentary table and made his way to the ring to offer the rookie Number Man a helping hand, allowing the masked man to win his first pro match by pinfall.
Billed as "Accountant by day, Wrestler by night", the masked Corporate Number Dad, complete with his business suit, entered to take on Snooty Foxx in singles action. Foxx toyed with the masked man for a bit but found out that once he got interested in wrestling, he could inflict some pain. After re-evaluating his opponent, Foxx kicked it up a notch and had the Number Dad on the ropes as Ethan Alexander Sharpe once again corrupted the results of a CWF bout, interfering and helping the Corporate Number Dad to a pinfall win.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champion Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe was then introduced, and in only a mild surprise, arrives to the ring with both Number Man and Corporate Number Dad in tow. CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay entered and began battle against the tag champ in non-title singles action. The competitors battled for nearly fifteen minutes in a back-and-forth personal looking fight until both of the masked Numbers folk entered the ring and attacked the RGL Champion. Referee Redd Jones called for the bell and threw out the match for outside interference.
Then the referee did something quite rare. He asked for a mic.
Jones then suggested that since there were two opposite teams of three, that perhaps a six-man tag would be in order, and to make it interesting, stipulate that should the Kool Jay team win, Michael McAllister and "Cowboy" Kool Jay get to challenge Corruption for their CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Titles at the 2018 Weaver Cup Finals. After calling for the bell a serious fight broke out, with the Number Man getting singled out for a stretch away from his corner, frequently abused in the corner of "Cowboy" Kool Jay, Marshal McAllister and Snooty the Kid.
After all six competitors got involved and tags became more frequent, the Corrupted Numbers Gang started to look a little long in the tooth, with the Cowboy, the Marshal and the Kid taking control of the bout and banishing the bad guys to leave town before sunset by pinfall. The residents of the area around the CW-Bar-F Ranch can rest easy at nights knowing that our Sheriff "Cowboy" Kool Jay, Marshal McAllister and Snooty the Kid are on the side of law and order.

Corruption Attacks Early And Often To Defeat CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemption At CWF OH WHAT A SUMMER!
A Special Photo Extra!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
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.

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!
