The "Midnight Mermaid" Aspyn Rose made her return to the Sportatorium and was derailed by fired-up newcomer Jessica Troy, who defeated Rose by pinfall in singles action.
The Prolariat Boar of Moldova was out next to battle the intense #Real Joshua Cutshall in singles action. Pig Daddy Cool started fast, going straight to the face of the Cutshall, who turned the tides and walked out as a pinfall winner over the Boar.
The fans were next introduced to the new PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion, Logan Easton Laroux, who defeated Chet Sterling the previous evening in Virginia. He grabbed a chair to sit ringside as a Fatal Four-Way to determine the new #1 Contender to his title was introduced. Garrison King, Carlos, Gabriel, Pat Monix and Tracer X went to battle in a high-flying hard-hitting affair from bell-to-bell. All four of these young competitors showed the fans their abilities, but Tracer X was the eventual winner and new #1 Contender for the Ultra-J Crown Championship.
Australia's "Rapscallion" Mick Morretti was out next to take on "Ol' Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun in first-round 2017 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action. Despite the unorthodox strategy of the Aussie, Calhoun won by pinfall to advance to the Quarterfinals.
The "Midnight Mermaid" returned to the ring area leading out "Death Proof" Aaron Epic to take on Chicago's Matt Knicks in first-round Weaver Cup action. Epic advances to the Quarterfinals via pinfall win over Knicks.
New PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Logan Easton Laroux was up next to do battle with Japanese entrant Utamaro in first-round Weaver Tournament action. The first-round time limit became a factor before Laroux somehow pulled out a pinfall to advance to the tournament Quarterfinals.
"The Real Life Ben Affleck" Alex Daniels returned to the Sportatorium to take on Stevie Fierce in first-round 2017 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament action. Daniels took a quick advantage over Fierce, and maintained it until he was able to pin his shoulders to advance to the Quarterfinals.
Six teams were prepared for a rare tag-team scramble for a shot at the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Titles and it kicked off with Ethan Alexander Sharpe & Dr. Daniel C. Rockingham taking on "Freshest Price" Percy Davis & "Prince of Broadway" Frankie Flynn. Sharpe and his life coach eliminated the Princes as A.C. Hawkes & Zicky Dice entered and eliminated them. Higher Eschelon's P.B. Smooth & Colby Redd entered next and then eliminated Hawkes & Dice. Donnie Dollar$ & Mike Mars entered next and took out Higher Eschelon just as the All Star's Arik Royal, Coach Gemini & Jarry Carey introduced Royal's partner for the evening, Kool J. Royal and Kool J cleaned house, finally eliminating Dollar$ & Mars, expecting to win the title shot, but the celebration was interrupted when a SEVENTH team entered the match. "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart entered after a couple of previous issues with the All Stars and brought Caprice "Ice" Coleman as his partner. Coach Gemini's plans were foiled by the guy who refused to join the All Stars and a CWF legend, Caprice Coleman, who defeated the All Stars with a convincing pinfall to win a shot at the CWF Tag Team Titles, currently held by the Dawson Brothers.
Eight-man tag action with the stipulation that if any champion involved in the match is pinned that they must IMMEDIATELY defend their title against the person that pinned them was the night's main event. CWF Tag Champions Zane & Dave Dawson w/Clayton Carter entered with partners CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews and CWF RGL Champion Cain Justice to take on Chet Sterling, Smith Garrett and So Time's Dirty Daddy & Snooty Foxx. Heated battle ensued with the fans not getting a bonus title match after the Dawsons, Andrews & Justice won the match by pinfall to conclude the night's action.

"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

1001 Springwood Ave.
Big Zoe presented his tag team the Co-Stars, "Film Maker" Movie Myk and Timmy Danger for tag team action against "Perty Starter" Keith Mack and lightning-fast Kool J. Despite the idiot announcer's proclamation at the conclustion of the bout, the Co-Stars did actually win the bout by a convincing pinfall to kick off CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2017.
Former Commissioner William L. Cross entered and made a few comments about his involvement with CWF Mid Atlantic and how he's ready to resume some of his duties he walked away from when he was in a "darker place" during his time with the original Aftermath.
Grudge match action was up next as "A Very Handsome Man" Mitch Connor entered to take on young upstart and current RGL Champion Cain Justice in a non-title bout. Justice continued his disrespect of Connor by dropping out of the ring to put on his pads after the bell rang, Connor made a note for later in the match. Justice went MMA-style and Connor joined him on the floor and showed the young champion how the old school mat wrestlers made their money, taking him with a clean pinfall win.
Jakob Hammermeier was out next complaining about PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Chet Sterling "stealing his look", only to find the Ultra-J Champ answer his challenge for a fight. With the belt on the line, Hammermeier started strong, but hesitated to boast of his prowess on a couple of occassions best suited for finishing off one's opponent. Sterling got his second wind and turned up the speed to 11 before finishing off Hammermeier by pinfall to retain his title once again.
Four-way Everything To Lose Tag action was up next pitting CWF Tag Champions Zane and Dave Dawson's tag titles against Him and Sis' individual masks, Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs & Mecha Mercenary's rights to a full year of CWF Tag Title shots and "Wrestling Machine" Otto Schwanz and Ethan Alexander Sharpe put up the career of Schwanz. A bizarre brawl erupted all over the arena, inside and outside of the ring. The Sandwich Squad scored the winning pinfall, resulting in the Fury Of Him being unmasked. As the former Michael McAllister fumed in the ring, William L. Cross returned to the apron telling McAllister he would be willing to help him if he'd be willing to help himself, and turning and walking away. McAllister screamed and ran after him as he realized he'd left.
CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews was introduced and awaited the announcement of his fan-drawn challenger. When "the 1st" Ric Converse's name was announced the building lit up in anticipation of Converse possibly winning the ONLY title in CWF Mid Atlantic he's never held. Andrews started fast and strong, but after a few minutes Converse took the lead in the match and dropped the champion to the canvas. As Converse gets up and calls for his Ric-Tor Scale finisher, PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson decided to enter the arena and walk to the ring. Andrews took advantage of the challenger's distraction and dropped Converse for a pinfall win. Note: Andrews first WON the title at CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2016!
With Coach Gemini barred from ringside, Jarry Carey led All Star Roy Wilkins to the ring for scheduled tag team action. After opponents So Time's Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx were introduced, Carey took the mic and introduced Wilkin's actual partner, Darius Lockhart. who hit the ring ready for action. The bout began and when So Time began to take an advantage, Super Chicken, the mascot, makes his way to the ring and is surrounded by Carey and Wilkins, leaving Lockhart alone in the ring. Wilkins finally returned his attention to the action in the ring and helped himself and Lockhart to a pinfall win over the hot team of Foxx and Daddy. Coach Gemini then appeared from the back, explaining that he realized what the All Stars have been missing these past few months. A Chappy. So Coach offers that position to Lockhart, who turned him down flat and told him he was nobody's Chappy.
PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson hit the ring for a non-title tilt against Smith Garrett, who took exception to Anderson's appearance during the TV title bout and brought it on himself. Garrett fired up and went to war with the ECW Hardcore legend but Anderson soon turned the advantage back to his direction. Ric Converse's entrance music began and Converse made his way down the entranceway, but Anderson mostly ignored him while finishing off Garrett by pinfall. Converse helped Garrett from the ring after the bout, cheering him on for taking it to the champion.
Cashing in his winning the 2016 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament, Nick Richards hit the ring to take on CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee in No Holds Barred - No DQ - No Countouts title action. Richards attacked during Lee's introduction and the referee ordered the bell. Twenty seconds later, Trevor Lee had kicked out of not one but TWO pin attempts after stunners. And then it got intense. Ricahrds took it to the champion, but the champion absorbed some of the attacks and returned them with a vengeance on the challenger. Richards refused to quit despite having plenty of reasonable occassions to have done so, and kept bringing it to Lee, even driving him through a table before setting up a half dozen steel chairs under a corner turnbuckle. Trevor Lee continues his incredible string of Mid Atlantic title defenses by finally submitting Nick Richards before the 30 minute mark of the bout. Lee stuck around to tell Richards he would have probably not been such a snob toward him if he'd only realized how hard-headed he actually was. Richards finished the night on the mic before requesting a photo or two of his swollen eye and cheek...

IndyInsiders.Com CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2017 Report!
CWF-RGL WE PAY OUR RENT ON TIME .. DO YOU?! Ends With Unscheduled Six Man Main Event!
A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
The "Film Maker" Movie Myk and manager Big Zoe were out first to kick off CWF-RGL WE PAY OUR RENT ON TIME .. DO YOU?! in singles action against Jake Hollister. The match went to the floor early as the Film Maker tried to exit stage right before returning to the ring for a powerful and compelling performance by Jake Hollister. Perhaps by magic from Hollywood itself, Movie Myk somehow stole a pinfall win from the game Hollister.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered the ring next with house mic in hand to announce a challenge...for his Inter-Gender Championship. Snooty Foxx hit the entrance and Sharpe bailed, stating he only wrestles women now and he didn't need the hassle of dealing with Foxx. Foxx took the house mic and put down an actual challenge for a match and big Mike Mars came through the entrance to face Foxx. Mars, who reminds some of Bruiser Brody, didn't back away from the challenge of Foxx and actually controlled much of the bout, using powerful holds and trying to stretch the powerhouse Snooty Foxx. Foxx fired up after finally getting off of the canvas and took the bout from the other big man by pinfall.
Joe King hit the ring next to take on Wes Rogers in singles action. Rogers started fast but King quickly put the brakes on his offense and set him to backpedalling and defending himself for much of the bout. Joe King showed off some power and hoisted his opponent off of the canvas on a couple of occassions but the surprisingly resilient Wes Rogers kept battling and ended the bout with a convincing pinfall win.
The "Wrestling Machine" Otto Schwanz was out next to take on Dirty Daddy in singles action. Schwanz set his programming for destruction and followed through from bell-to-bell, winning by pinfall seconds after the match's ten-minute mark.
Annoying Jerry Carey made his way to the ring with the house mic to apologize for the absence of the All Stars at the event and to introduce CWF Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice in his possible record breaking RGL Title defense against high-flying Kool J. Kool J started like a tornado, confounding and pounding on the champion and leaving him on several occassions, completely unsure of where his opponent even was. Kool J rained from the turnbuckles and the top ropes and then hit the brick wall when Justice turned him inside out for a pinfall win.
Justice wasn't finished with Kool J and attacked him again well after the bell had sounded. Dirty Daddy took exception and he ran into the arena, followed by Otto Schwanz, Ethan Sharpe from the commentary position and finally Snooty Foxx, who ended up with an official in the ring willing to officiate the six angry men in six-man tag team action. The fans got a unscheduled bonus as "Scrappy" Bare called for the bell!
An angry bonus main event began with Schwanz, Sharpe and Justice singling out Dirty Daddy from Snooty Foxx and Kool J and keeping him in their half of the ring. The Dirty Daddy was on rubber legs at a couple of points, barely able to stand, but continued getting back to his feet after being knocked down. The mood of the bout changed as Dirty Daddy finally made the tag and his partners became involved in the bout, eventually gaining a slight advantage despite an injured Kool J shoulder. When Snooty Foxx hit the ring like a house of fire, he began tossing opponents around like rag dolls, tagged in Dirty Daddy who finished the night's action with a convincing pinfall win for his team.

CWF-RGL HEY MAN, CAN WE BORROW YOUR VAN!? Highlighted the Return Of Micheal McAllister; Metallico's Breakout Match(?); and Fun For All!
A Special Photo Extra!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
The latest addition to the Number Family debuted as the bathrobe-wearing Number Dad entered the ring to take on Metallico in a singles bout between masked competitors. After the ring official removed several handfuls of toys, action figures, baby diapers and assorted clutter, Number Dad locks up with Metallico and a surprising physical altercation followed. Number Dad upheld his family tradition of finding and using shortcuts, but Metallico was able to stay in the battle and take an advantage and a pinfall win over the new masked crumudgeon, ruining his debut.
Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride was introduced next and entered the ring with a house mic to tell the fans about the RCW Event at Riders In The Country on August 6th. Of course, McBride, as he often is, finds himself interrupted by CWF's current Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice. McBride let Justice talk himself out and finally decided he'd had enough and asked for a REFEREE. The bell rings and Justice begins to doubt his own abilities early as McBride moved forward. The match evened up thanks to the youth of Justice and McBride began to become angry and started blistering the chest of young Justice with open-hand chops. The referee steps in and warns McBride off, and most uncharacteristic of him, McBride tossed the referee across the ring! Justice wins by a rare DQ because McBride assulted the official.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe brought down the crowd with his entrance and in a surprising turn, roared when his opponent Michael McAllister was introduced. Wrestling without a mask for the first time in months, the recently emancipated McAllister began taking apart the wealthiest wrestler on the CWF roster like he owed him cash money. McAllister got a convincing pinfall win in just over five minutes in his first singles action since being reclaimed by former CWF Commissioner William L. Cross, who is still the manager of "the 1st" Ric Converse."
Big bad Mike Mars was out next for a singles bout against So Time's Dirty Daddy and their match could only be described as Fast & Punishing. Dirty provided the speed while Mars used every opportunity that arose to pound on the body of the Dirty Daddy. The relentless beating of Mars took it's toll over time and Dirty Daddy found himself on the wrong end of the pinfall win. Mars, however, wasn't happy with allowing Dirty Daddy to exit under his own power and continued to pound on the fan favorite. Mecha Mercenary, in street clothes and mask, hit the ring as Ethan Sharpe and Number Boy made their way out to help create mayhem. Michael McAllister entered the impromptu fray and someone said "six man tag" and a referee hit the ring, calling for the bell.
The freshest man in the match, Number Boy, started off against Mecha Mercenary and never quite got locked up with him before finding himself being rag-dolled by the friendly robot sammich guy. McAllister & Dirty took turns with the masked son of Number Dad (guessing here) before Sharpe was forced in by an unwanted tag. Mike Mars watched much of the match in disbelief from the ring apron, until the Teenage Dance Party broke out, forcing him to shut off the music and stop the dancing completely. Mars took on each of the three opponents, but also found himself the target of the bodies of his partners, as they were thrown around the ring. The Mecha, MechAllister & Dirty Daddy team wins by pinfall, leaving Sharpe, Number Boy and Mars looking around for someone to blame.

No, I still don't watch WWE programming, and I'm not a "network" subscriber, but what I read this morning makes me doubly happy that I'm not paying for their product of date. A known wrestling pundit was on my timeline this morning comparing the House of Horrors thing from this weekend's WWE PPV to "bad indy wrestling". The indies have NOTHING to do with whatever the McMahons wish to peddle their fans, they'll buy anything. If you want to look for someone to blame, try the ivory towers where the McMahon braintrust work every day, don't try to find a way to slam an industry that is doing pretty darn well on it's on these days.
Hard to blame the indies because of the sheer numbers. WWE has how many active workers under contract? (And I SERIOUSLY have no clue on these numbers, I am making a supposition, ok?) If both the Raw and SD "brands" employ 25 each, that's 50 "superstars" ready to go. NXT is making better news these days, and so perhaps we add another 25 for the upstart brand that is outpacing it's parent company today, bringing the total to 75. Again, I do NOT have actual roster numbers, this is merely for comparison. There are what, 35,000 or 40,000 indy wrestlers (low range) across the country training and hoping to one day make that tiny number and become a WWE "superstar".
I can't imagine the job it has become in recent years of keeping the "best" or most profitable performers on payroll when the potential pool of employees has gone from a car load of applicants to a small city full, raising itself exponentially every year. I can't imagine having talent under contract that you feel obligated to keep involved in major storylines only because their contracts demand it too. Also, I wonder what part of a Sports Management degree makes one an expert in pro wrestling booking?
And people sometimes ask why I didn't go into booking events...
I hear Donald Trump is going to hire Vince Russo and put him in charge of building the wall. Told you he'd make the best of folk's expertise. With Russo involved NO ONE GETS OVER!
See you at ringside!
