After a rare live television do-over, commentators Chris Riddle and Brian Morris were introduced and the first match made it's way to the ring to kick off CWF INVINCIBLE at the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium.
Isaiah Frazier was introduced for singles action and discovered the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs breathing down his neck even before the bell sounded. Newcomer Frazier was a bit tentative at first before figuring out a means to inflict a little pain on the much larger Biggs. The impressive Isaiah Frazier took the momentum and made it his own minutes into the bout much to the surprise of everyone in the Sportatorium. Then something touched a nerve, fired an impulse perhaps, inside of Biggs and he regained control with a roar and pinned Frazier for the win.
The All Stars were out next, Coach Gemini and Jarry Caray with RGL Champion TGA Moss and Jamal the Titan. Coach informed the fans that he has initiated Jamal the Titan into the All Stars and that business was looking up when LaBron Kozone entered the ring and warned his friend Moss about the history of abuse by the All Stars to even top talent like Roy Wilkins. TGA Moss and the Titan took exception and attacked Kozone, who was then helped out by Michael "the Fury" McAllister and Adrian "Action" Jackson. As the smoke cleared, PWI President William L. Cross ordered a six-man contest between the All Stars, including Coach Gemini, against Kozone, McAllister and Jackson.
The six-man began hot with LaBron Kozone holding court against both Moss and Jamal before letting his partners into the match. Five wrestlers competed against each other as the sixth took a seat at the commentary table for live in-match commentary. With about eleven minutes gone in the match Coach Gemini returned to the All Stars corner, waiting until one of the opponents was flat on his back before asking for a tag. Coach tagged in got the pinfall in the record book for this six-man tag.
Newcomer Mikey Banker was out next to take on PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx with the belt on the line. Banker took a few moments to get his bearings and then began returning fire to the Carolinas Champion, keeping the balance hanging by a thread between the two. With a technically sound outing, Banker also impressed the fans with his abilities in the ring and on the ropes before Snooty Foxx ended his challenge by a pinfall to retain the title.
The Corruptor Ethan A. Sharpe was out next to defend the CWF Worldwide Television Championship against the masked Number Braaah. Sharpe arrived to the ring with CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Killa Koga in tow, making the match a three-on-one affair behind the ring official's back. Number Braaah started out hot, hung ten and got big air, relegating the champion to the canvas for much of the match. The odds changed with a little help from Sharpe's friends and the Corruptor actually retained the title by a pinfall win against the game Number Braaah. After Corruption left the arena, Corporate Number Dad entered and grabbed a house mic. He got into the ring and told his son that tonight was a life lesson about how people will treat you if you let them and suggested he "grow up", ending by breaking his son's boogie board in half to make his point.
Following intermission, a special live performance by pop star Ella Ivey was introduced. Ivey entered with security and began "singing" one of her Grammy-nominated hits and the crowd rejected her loudly. In a fit of rage, the BitDon International recording artist melted down asking for a house mic to berate the fans for not knowing anything about music. Percy Prescott entered the arena with a house mic and attempted to approach Ivey in the ring, but was blocked by security. He told her to do us all a favor and exit tha arena, causing even more distress in the singer.
BitDon CEO Donald J. BitDon, Public Relations Director Nicholas K. Richards and Khan O'Kelly entered for tag team action against Sheriff "Cowboy" Kool Jay and "Deputy TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. In a back and forth physical confrontation, the match went back and forth between the teams before a mysterious masked figure once again entered and stood next to the commentary table as the match unfolded. As the action got hot and heavy, the masked man ran around the ring and engaged with Sheriff Kool Jay, eventually fighting out of the fire exit door into the parking lot as his isolated partner was pinned for the match win.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Killa Koga and Dirty Daddy entered with CWF Worldwide Television Champion Ethan A. Sharpe to take on the young tag team Friendly Fire's BeeBop and Jamal Hewens with the gold on the line. Hewens started for his team and irritated Killa Koga with his laughter and fun attitude who eventually tagged in partner BeeBop who found himself across the ring from the "body man" Dirty Daddy. BeeBop displayed some hot footwork and eventually found himself cut off from making a tag. The Corruption machine tagged in and out like clockwork with Sharpe occassionally getting the referee's ear and eye allowing a little extra from his tag team champions behind the official's eye. Corruption wins by pinfall to retain their titles as the fans in the Sportatorium let Friendly Fire know they would like to see them return to the Sportatorium in the near future.
After some announcements about CWF ULTIMATE SURVIVOR XVII by PWI President William L. Cross, the main event was introduced. Jarry Caray introduced the All Stars' CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Ace" Arik Royal with Coach Gemini at his side and challenger "the Smoothest Skywalker" Cam Carter made his way to the ring for a shot at history. The two went at it, testing each other's limits, strengths and eventually temper in some cases in a match between two strong-willed young competitors. Fans witnessed a match between two of the top indy stars on the east coast today and got their money's worth as the two fought for well over twenty-five minutes before Royal finished the deal with a pinfall win after a few interruptions by Coach Gemini from the floor turned the tide for the final time.

"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
Samoa Joey, Sheriff Kool Jay & Snooty Foxx Defeat Corruption In Six-Man Referee-Ordered Main Event Tag Team Action at CWF-RGL JOEYMANIA III!
A Special Photo Extra!
CWF Rising Generation League's JOEYMANIA III - NIGHTMARE ON SPRINGWOOD AVE kicked off with the introduction of Brian Morris and John Henry "Kingfish" Foy to begin the night on live commentary before Samoa Joey was introduced to welcome the fans to the Sportatorium. The evening's namesake was interrupted by the BitDon ICO's Donald J. BitDon, Nicholas K. Richards and Khan O'Kelly, who tried to run Samoa Joey off. Joey did leave but called for a tag team to enter and take on the ICO to open the night's action.
The Brothers of Seduction's "Mother Lover" Jake Tucker and Cam The Prince entered to take on BitDon and Richards with O'Kelly at ringside. The match got physical fast with the Brothers showing off some team work against the Corporation and forcing them to re-imagine the form and flow of the match to turn the tide after the ten minute mark to walk away with a pinfall win against the impressive debut of the team at the Sportatorium.
The "Big Hurt of Professional Wrestling" DeAndre Jackson was up next to take on "Deputy TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. in singles action. The larger Jackson took the immovable object stance but was dishing out irresistable force against Ireland Jr., sending him to the canvas in pain during several instances in the match. Jackson seemed impervious to anything the Deputy tried to do and returned any attack with one of his own. Teddy Ireland Jr.'s button got pushed at some point, the fight instinct kicked in and he turned the fight around quickly winning the match via pinfall in just under ten minutes after unleashing his own brand of mayhem.
CWF Worldwide Television Champion Ethan A. Sharpe entered with the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Killa Koga to defend his title against Michael "the Fury" McAllister in the traditional ten minute television title rules format match. Sharpe didn't even want to enter the ring to begin the match, asked the referee to begin it with him on the floor, forcing the referee to start the match and count to get him into the ring to eat up precious time. True to his form since winning the title, Sharpe retains the title by rule as he was being pinned as the ten minute time limit expired.
Three-way singles action was up next with big Jamal The Titan entering first, followed by newcomer James Anthony and then Cain Justice. An entertaining battle that began as a 2-on-1 with the Titan and Anthony joining forces to attack Justice. The fight went to the floor with all three brawling and rolling into the ring to break the referee's 10 count numerous times before all three made their way back into the squared circle to decide the match. Justice did his best impression of the Flash, attacking both opponents in opposite corners like a man on fire, setting him up for a submission win moments later over Anthony.
"The Last Outlaw" Sean Stephens made his return to the Sportatorium to find himself across the ring from Adrian "Action" Jackson in a singles battle. Stephens flexed his size and reach advantage early on, slowing down Action Jackson to the point the fans became concerned if he could continue. Jackson tried several times after the ten minute mark to hoist 6'8" Stephens across his shoulders, but couldn't because of the punishment his opponent was doing to his spine. The two brawled, wrestled, and fought for survival before Jackson had the stamina to hoist up big Sean Stephens in the Torture Rack, forcing him to submit.
The scheduled main event was introduced, pitting CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Killa Koga and Dirty Daddy, escorted by CWF Worldwide Television Champion Ethan A. Sharpe against PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx and Sheriff "Cowboy" Kool Jay with Samoa Joey in their corner to keep an eye on things. The teams battled for nearly twenty minutes before the referee lost control of the bout, throwing it out with the champions retaining by rule. Since Sharpe and Samoa Joey were eager to fight, the ring official called for six-man action pitting all three members of Corruption to battle Snooty Foxx, "Cowboy" Kool Jay and Samoa Joey in mere moments.
A new main event was underway with Samoa Joey finally getting his hands, legally, on the Corruptor Ethan Alexander Sharpe in the squared circle. He tagged in the Sheriff and then tagged back in to take a ride around the ring on the back of the TV champ. The match moved quickly with all six competitors getting in their shots but it began to break down as the previous "main event" and the official was gracious enough to allow a pinfall to end the match with Corruption sent away shaking their heads and angry.

Corruption Defeat CWF Tag Champions Pineapple Express In Trick-Or-Treat Tag Title Action At CWF THE FRIGHT STUFF!
A Special Photo Extra!
Introduction of the commentary team to start the night witnessed the return of long-time CWF competitor "Rock & Roll" Matty Dee to help Chris Riddle on the call for the first half of the event and relieved by Robby Walsh following intermission. PWI President William L. Cross had a few words and the first match was introduced.
PWI International Trios Champions the Amish World Order hit the ring first, "Hollywood" Danny Vegas, "Big Mang" Hezekiah Hoskins, and "Bigger Mang" Jebediah Moss for a non-title tilt agaist the CWF Bad Boys "Sheriff" Kool Jay, Teddy "Deputy TKO" Ireland Jr. and PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx. Law and order ruled the day with the Trios Champs taking a pinfall loss at the hand of the CWF Bad Boys.
The BitDon ICO hit the ring with a house mic and Khan O'Kelly began a presentation of a new belt to CEO Donald J. BitDon that was interrupted by a loud Otto Wrestling Machine. The BitDon team decided that their newest recruit, Thomas A. Roberts, would take on Otto in singles action and the veteran Machine went to work. Otto had his way with the BitDon newcomer, who was someone confounded by the unconventional Otto Schwanz ring work. Roberts kept trying to find something to hurt the veteran, but to no avail, Otto wins by pinfall.
A Halloween-themed title bout was introduced next, with CWF Worldwide Television Champion Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe taking on the challenge of Mike Mars in a Blindfold Match! Both men were tied into hoods that covered their heads and when the bell rang, they had a great deal of difficulty finding one another. Dirty Daddy and Killa Koga at ringside shouted directions to Sharpe but the fans were screaming too, making it hard to hear with your head in a bag. Mars did finally get a grasp on the TV Champion and took him to the canvas and began brutalizing him. The ten minute television time limit expired as Sharpe apparently submitted, but the referee ruled the bell rang before the champion submitted, ruling the bout a time limit draw.
"Cowboy" Kool Jay hit the ring next inviting all of the contestants for the Halloween costume contest into the ring. He divided the group in to "children" and "adults" and awarded prizes for the best costume in each catagory, a huge bag of candy and a surprise from Kool Jay's merchandise table. Excellent turnout for this year's contest!
The BitDon ICO entered next for tag team action, pitting the CEO Donald J. BitDon and Nicholas K. Richards against the team of "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Cain Justice. The history between the four had a bit of influence on the match, despite the over-confident and cavalier attitude of Richards, who seems eager to spend company money to create new company assets. The company stuck with their game plan and eventually finished the bout with a positive outcome, both financially and in terms of future motivation, BitDon ICO wins by pinfall.
The highly-anticipated Haunted Coach's Corner began with Jarry Caray entering with a masked Coach Gemini and CWF Champion Arik Royal. Coach spoke some voodoo and produced someone "from the dead" as a ghost entered with a mic. After a few minutes, Michael "the Fury" McAllister enters and pulls the sheet off of the head of Jarry Caray and tells the coach he still hasn't brought anyone back from the dead. Coach produced some more voodoo and attempted again to bring back someone from the dead. He succeeded. Twice.
Not one, but two figures appeared shrouded in black. McAllister took Caray down, and the two masked figures advanced on Coach Gemini and Arik Royal, who seperated himself from the group. Unmasking, the Green Goblin was revealed as Adrian "Action" Jackson", who forced the Coach to partake in a traditional game of bobbing for apples. Unable to bite an apple in the bucket of water, Coach finds himself soaking wet and suddenly a draft below the waist as someone pulled down his coach's shorts.
The Jack-O-Lantern advanced on the Coach, removing his head to reveal Roy Wilkins underneath. Wilkins then put the carved pumpkin on the Coach's head before seeking out Arik Royal for a little revenge after catching him in the ring. The All Stars beat a path out of the Sportatorium as Wilkins, McAllister & Jackson stood together defiantly in the squared circle.
The new twist to the Trick-or-Treat title match main event was that actual trick-or-treaters would deliver the Halloween bag to the ring when the doorbell on the platform was rang, rather than having them hanging from the ringposts as in past holiday events. Corruption's Killa Koga and Dirty Daddy entered to challenge CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Pineapple Express' Number Braaah and Buddy Flowers. The battle raged and the first few trick-or-treaters delivered goodie bags filled with only candy and toilet paper.
Shiny brass knuckles were delivered to Corruption in a goodie bag and they turned the match in their favor with that kind of advantage. The final trick-or-treater arrived with a goodie bag for Corruption that held Dirty Daddy's infamous steel pipe, which was the actual weapon of choice for Corruption to regain the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Titles with.

"Cowboy" Kool Jay Wins the 19TH ANNUAL CWF RUMBLE!
A Special Photo Extra!
The 19th ANNUAL CWF RUMBLE began with the introduction of the evening's commentary team, Chris Riddle and Amber Gertner before the first match was introduced in the ring.
Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe entered with partners Dirty Daddy and Killa Koga to defend his CWF Worldwide Television Championship against "Cowboy" Kool Jay. Sharpe played the stall game to wear down the ten minute television time limit, spending Kool Jay's valuable time on the floor waiting out the ten count. When the Sheriff finally got his hands on the TV Champion, he did inflict as much pain as possible in an attempt to put another title belt around his waist. The ten minute time limit expired before the referee could make the three-count for Kool Jay to win the belt, Sharpe retains by rule.
Former All Star and current Free Agent Roy Wilkins entered next and shared some thoughts with the fans and the Twitch audience, reinforcing the fact that he has indeed switched locker rooms and is excited to take up arms beside the wrestlers he used to oppose against the All Stars and their ilk.
Singles action hit the ring next with Jamal the Titan taking on Billy Dixon. Dixon's history with the BitDon Corporation reared it's head as Khan O'Kelly appeared at ringside, causing Dixon to turn his back on Jamal the Titan, a mistake amplified by a pinfall win for the Titan.
The Skywalkers returned to action at the Sportatorium, this time battling to be the new #1 Contender for the PWI International Ultra-J Crown Championship currently held by "Southern Savior" John Skyler. Hometown boy Andrew Everett stepped through the ropes once again to battle the high-flying Cam Carter and magic ensued. A fun and familiar competition began, from back-flips to chops that quickly became a much more serious contest moments later. A thing of beauty and violence ensued with Everett eventually putting the shoulders of Carter to the canvas for the three count.
William L. Cross introduced the 1st Annual Dirty Daddy Body Building Classic, with the sponsor led to the ring by partners Killa Koga and TV Champion Sharpe before the introduction of Adrian "Action" Jackson. The two took turns on the platform, displaying three different poses. Sharpe declared his man Dirty Daddy the winner and Cross interrupted and asked the crowd who won. After they decided on Jackson, Corruption attacked the winner. Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. hit the ring to help run Corruption off after their cowardly three-on-one attack.
Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey entered next, introducing the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion, All Star Arik Royal, who is contracted to defend against Michael "the Fury" McAllister. McAllister entered and the two settled in for the long haul, battling back and forth in a physical and somewhat personal contest. They fought in the ring, in the bleachers and on the concrete floor for well over twenty-five minutes and it seems that Royal depends on his security blanket, his team, to retain his title when the going gets tough. Rising Generation League Champion All Star TGA Moss ended up at ringside to lend a helping hand to his teammates to insure a win for Royal.
The 19th ANNUAL CWF RUMBLE kicked off with PWI International Trios Champions Viva Las Amish's Danny Vegas starting off against CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Pineapple Express' Number Braaah. Every 90 seconds, another competitor was introduced into the match, with Steampunk Myzery, Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Pineapple Exrpess' Buddy Flowers entering next. PWI Central Carolins Champion Snooty Foxx entered, followed by PWI International Trios Champion Hezekiah Hoskins, "the Big Hurt of Wrestling" DeAndre Jackson, Cam Carter, and "All Business" James Bandy.
Corruption's Killa Koga entered followed by the Corporate Number Dad, who immediately attacked Buddy Flowers, Viva Las Amish's Jebediah Moss. Trios Champion Danny Vegas was the first man eliminated, followed by the Steampunk, Corporate Number Dad and his son, Number Braaah. Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. entered, followed by RGL Champion All Star TGA Moss and big Mike Mars. DeAndre Jackson was eliminated and then followed to the locker room by Buddy Flowers, James Bandy, Hezekiah Hoskins and Jebedian Moss.
Redemption's Nick Richards entered next, followed by Adrian "Action" Jackson and "Cowboy" Kool Jay. Snooty Foxx found himself on his back on the concrete, followed out by Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr., Killa Koga and partner Dirty Daddy. TV Champion Ethan Sharpe enters followed by the returning Marcellus "Mid Atlantic" King, Otto Wrestling Machine and "the 1st" Ric Converse. Mike Mars was tossed out next, followed by TGA Moss before the entry of "High Definition" Steve Greene, Donald J. BitDon, and Andrew Everett.
Cam Carter was eliminated followed by Otto Wrestling Machine, who was attacked by Nick Richards, who has apparently moved into the corporate structure of the BitDon Corporation. Roy Wilkins, PWI International Heavyweight Champion Brad Attitude and newcomer Chiva Kid Numero Dos entered before the final entrant, Khan O'Kelly. Adrian "Action" Jackson was out next to the floor, followed by BitDon's Nick Richards and "High Definition" Steve Greene.
Ric Converse was eliminated next before Chiva Kid Numero Dos and Khan O'Kelly were sent to the locker room. Marcellus King stood his ground but was eventually sent out, followed by Andrew Everett and Roy Wilkins, who was attacked by former partner Arik Royal. Donald J. BitDon was eliminated next, leaving only Sharpe, Attitude and Kool Jay in play to win any championship in CWF Mid-Atlantic. Sharpe found the concrete and Kool Jay found himself left with only Brad Attitude in his way to the Rumble win.
"Cowboy" Kool Jay pulled every ounce of heart to the surface to continue to battle and turned on the offense against Brad Attitude, sending him to the canvas with a kick to the back of the head. The Sheriff turned on the afterburners and eliminated the PWI Heavyweight Champion to win the 19th ANNUAL CWF RUMBLE and a shot at the title of his choice.

Stardate: 12.01.19 2:22 pm
Unless you live under a rock, by now you realize that CWF Mid-Atlantic has shut the doors on the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium, the CWF Dojo & Training Center and cancelled the remainder of the year's schedule. This happened a little over a day before the scheduled CWF ULTIMATE SURVIVOR XVII. Nothing has been added to the "Thank You" notice on the promotion's website cwf247.com and there's not a lot more I can share about the circumstances surrounding the surprising closing.
I've told everyone that burn out is real and can be a killer if left untreated. Personally, I've not even seen a wrestling ring since the last CWF event and currently am trying to re-learn not basing most of my waking days on professional wrestling promotion. I'm re-discovering college football, I'm beginning to like cooking at home again and I'm also currently always available as a chauffer for the lovely wife. I've not had a reason besides "Black Friday" (wife works in retail) to be up in the shank of the morning, as I would often do following live events, and my stress levels seem to be normalizing after a few weeks of feeling stunned by the whole situation.
So why did CWF close up their familiar shrine to indy pro wrestling, the Sportatorium? Imagine, if you will, having a full-time job that requires constant daily attention and decisions made in every aspect of the facility. Now add the fact that you are required to produce X amount of dollars monthly to pay rent and keep the lights on at said facility, which means everything has to be fluid and current in this ever-changing world. Add in personality conflicts that humans sometime have between each other, conflict resolution has become another aspect of the daily job. Also, crafting the very stories that are told. You also have to book these events.
Anyone else seeing how this could become one major Excederin headache?
Add to this also, the recruitment and training of new performers, which could be a full-time job all in itself. And logistics solutions for many events. And always having an answer or deciding a way to find an answer. Oh, and also, building upkeep and cleaning.
Still imagining all of this? Now add one more reason. You do all of this, more than an actual full time "day job", and you do it for no additional renumeration to keep on doing this over and over again.
I think many of you know exactly why CWF took off the remainder of November and December now. At least the ones with real-life experience and a little bit of empathy. It was a business decision made because of the amount of burn-out being felt by the ones that actually do all of the duties I outlined above. I didn't realize how burnt out I was until I sat at home a couple of weekends with my shoes off and my feet up and I'm only there on event days. I didn't do much beyond advertisement and such the rest of the week.
Hope this helps everyone understand what has transpired over the past few weeks, months and years.
We're not dead yet. We changed our business model. Stay tuned, ya'll!
