After a lengthy speech about past and future conquests in love, Ethan Alexander Sharpe faced off in singles action against the resilient young Kool J. Sharpe used his advantage in experience early to baffle his smaller statured opponent but that seemed to only lead to firing up Kool J. Kool J exploded in the face of Sharpe like a lit firecracker, getting several near falls before Sharpe scooped him up and crushed his head into the canvas like a human lawn dart. It took several minutes before Kool J exited the arena following his loss.

Tag team action was up next as the young team of Donny Ray and big Luke Grimes were introduced to take on the team of Dirty Daddy and veteran "Handsome" Mitch Connor. The Dirty Daddy and Donny Ray tussled for the first five minutes of the bout, fast moves and counters before Dirty tagges his partner Connor in. Connor rushed in and took the fight to the opponent's corner, allowing Luke Grimes to enter the battle and take Connor off of his feet. Connor's veteran presence was a factor in the outcome of the match, winning by pinfall, but both Ray and Grimes look to be ready to contend for spots in the roster with another impressive outing for both.

The "Real Deal" Big Zoe unrolled the red carpet and presented his man "Film Maker" Movie Myk for singles action against veteran Nick Richards. After a jumpy start which saw Myk exit the ring for motivation from his director Big Zoe, the Film Maker got serious and slowed Richards with a series of painful moves, but as we've seen in the past, Richards doesn't quit. Move Myk's confidence grew as the match continued, causing him to make bigger moves with Zoe directing from the outside. The referee caught the director tripping up Richards in the ropes and banned him from the arena, to which Richards responded with a quick pinfall win after over fifteen minutes of brutality.

CWF Rising Generation League Champion Cain Justice was introduced next to defend his title in the main event against young powerhouse Snooty Foxx. With the fans solidly behind Foxx (even Cain's mother) Foxx used his savvy to know when to advance on the submission wrestler Justice and when not to. Snooty Foxx took control of the match mere moments before the fifteen minute time limit and felt the title slip away from his grasp as the bell sounded. Foxx asked the fans, the referee and everybody in the building for five more minutes, to which the referee eventually agreed. As he signals the bell to restart the match, Justice slips out of the aim of a Snooty Foxx spear, which took the referee out of the match. Foxx continued to fight Justice, had him down for a long three count before realizing there was no referee. When the second official makes his way to the ring, he calls for the bell after what he saw as a Snooty Foxx pinfall and title change before correcting himself and announcing that Justice's foot was on the rope ordering the match started again. Eighteen seconds later the referee ended the match for real with a Cain Justice pinfall win.

"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

"White" Mike Wins CWF FanFest; Sandwich Squad Wins KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT!

CWF's very first FanFest kicked off with "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart challenging Cain Justice for the CWF Rising Generation League Championship. Lockhart takes Justice to the limit but is still forced to tap after the crafty rookie champion took advantage of his situation.

CWF FanFest promised "Superfan" Poppa Hales would get to choose a challenger for CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews. When presented with the sealed names, Hales tossed them all into the ring and proclaimed HE would actually choose the challenger, announcing tag champ Mecha Mercenary. Mecha climbed through the ropes as Hales announced it would also be fought under LumberQuack Rules! Andrews tried the hit and run tactic for a while before realizing he could stay out of the grasp of the monster Mecha and survived after only a regular beating at the hands of Mecha before being saved by the time limit. Andrews retains the title by rule.

A sixteen-person tag team match was then introduced. Yes, I typed "sixteen-person tag team match". "Blue Eyed Devil" Tripp Cassidy, Kris Main, The Fury Of Him, Shawn Kemp, the Dirty Blondes' Leo Brian and Mike Patrick, Sweet Dee and Jonathon Wolfe fell to the team of Nick Richards, Sis, the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful, Ethan Sharpe, Dirty Daddy, A.J. Gray and Ace Perry by pinfall.

Coach Gemini and a panel of luminaries then played a full episode of Match Game, offering fabulous prizes to the winner. The fans won with this one, kids, I'm telling you.

The CWF FanFest Main Event pitted "White" Mike Jordan against the "New & Improved" Chuck Taylor in a singles tilt. "White" Mike dropped his opponent to the canvas and announced "we're going to suplex city!" After a couple or three spirited suplexes of Taylor, Taylor shoved the ring official, who stepped in and suplexed Taylor for himself! A young child from the crowd stepped through the ring ropes into the ring and HE proceeded to hit Taylor with a textbook belly-to-back suplex! Then a former CWF Commissioner who has been MIA for the last 6 years, Ty Dillinger, hits the ring and takes Chuck Taylor to Suplex City before "White" Mike remembered that it was actually HIS match. White Mike wins by pinfall. We all win.

VIP Bonus matches kicked off the evening of the KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT FINALS as the masked bizarro-chick Sis went to war against newcomer "Harlot" Priscilla Kelly. Sis takes the duke by pinfall.

A.J. Gray was up next to battle Xsiris in VIP Bonus singles action. These two went hard and fast, with the veteran Xsiris taking a lot of punishment before finishing off young Gray.

VIP Bonus eight-man tag action kicked off next with CWF WorldWide TV Champion Aric Andrews, Dave Dawson and the Dirty Blondes' Mike Patrick and Leo Brian taking on Nick Richards, "Handsome" Mitch Connor, Slade Porter and Ace Perry. Andrews, Dawson and the Dirty Blondes win by pinfall.

Kernodle Cup Quarterfinal action was up next with the All Stars' Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal with Coach Gemini taking on the surprise winner of Night One, So' Time's Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx. The All Stars advance by pinfall with the expert coaching of Gemini on a roll.

The Carnies' Kerry Awful and Nick Iggy were up next, taking on Ethan Alexander Sharpe and "White" Mike Jordan in Quarterfinal Kernodle Cup action. The Carnies advance after forcing a ref stoppage into the Semifinals.

Quarterfinals continue as Stokley Hathaway's Dream Team of #Real Joshua Cutshall and Tracer X hit the ring to battle the Ugly Ducklings' Rob Killjoy and Lance Lude with Coach Mikey. An incredible aerial display broke out as these teams battled tooth and nail with the Ducklings paying dearly for the win over Hathaway's Dream Team.

The last Quarterfinal kicked off with CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs and Mecha Mercenary taking on "Blue Eyed Devil" Tripp Cassidy and RGL Champion Cain Justice to advance. Cassidy and Justice left angry at each other after the champions survived and won by pinfall to advance into the Semifinal round.

Moving forward began almost instantly as the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful attack the Tag Champions before they ever left the ring from the Quarterfinal match. The referee calls for the bell, indicating that the first Semifinal match had just bagan. The Carnies, the world-class talent that they are, didn't stand a chance when the Sandwich Squad got fired up and finished them off with a pinfall to advance to the Final. Mecha Mercenary was helped to the back after with an injured leg.

The All Stars "Ace" Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins with Coach Gemini hit the ring for a Semifinal battle against the Ugly Ducklings' Lance Lude and Rob Killjoy with Coach Mikey. Coach-on-Coach clipboard warfare broke out while the All Stars kept pounding on the already tender Ducklings, advancing to the Final by pinfall.

Georgia native Chip Day was out next to challenge CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee in a No Time Limit title bout. Day's reputation as a strong kicking attack didn't back down Lee, who asked for a few shots as the two were feeling each other out. A literal war erupted as these two young stars kicked in the afterburners near the ten-minute mark and never looked back. The match went back and forth like the tide, receding and advancing between the two until Trevor Lee found the opportunity to put down the shoulders of Chip Day. The crowd LOUDLY appreciated the effort of both wrestlers, who shook hands after the bout.

Coach Gemini was introduced by Jerry Carey along with All Stars Roy Wilkins and Arik "Ace" Royal for the main event Final of the KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT. The CWF Tag Champion Sandwich Squad entered and Coach Gemini immediately demanded that the tag titles also be on the line. Mecha and Biggs agreed and combat ensued with everything on the line. The ebb and flow of this match included a few tidal waves and a tsunami and even saw special guests Don and Rocky Kernodle exit their namesake VIP Lounge to clamp their signature sleeper locks on both Coach Gemini and Jerry Carey on the floor at ringside. Brad Attitude hit the ring ready to help determine the outcome of the tournament, but was thwarted by the vigilant Nick Richards, who cut him to the canvas before he could strike. With the Coach and his ring announcer down Mecha Mercenary and Aaron Biggs grabbed the pinfall win, the Kernodle Cup trophy and a plate of sandwiches before leaving the ring.

03.24.17

A bonus six-man lucha rules bout kicked off the night's action as Kyle Kaylor, A.J. Gray and "Have Mercy" Percy Davis defeated the team of Jonathon Wolfe, Shawn Kemp and Dale Patricks by pinfall in a fast-paced bout.

The Dirty Blondes' Mike Patrick and Leo Brian were up for the first match of the Kernodle Cup Tournament, drawing the current CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs & Mecha Mercenary. Mecha & Biggs advance to the second night with a pinfall win against quality opponents in a tough opening match.

The bizarre duo of The Fury Of Him and Sis were out next to take on Ethan Alexander Sharpe and "White" Mike Jordan in first-round Kernodle Cup action. Despite taking the wrong end of the beating, Sharpe and Jordan advance to the second night via pinfall.

Stokley Hathaway entered next, to present his Dream Team of #Real Joshua Cutshall and Tracer X, who drew Da Powah's Ian Maxwell and Big Time Yah for first-round opponents. Maxwell and Yah took the fight to Hathaway's team but came up short with the Dream Team advancing to the second night of competition by pinfall.

"Blue Eyed Devil" Tripp Cassidy and RGL Champion Cain Justice were up next to take on the team of the Insiders' Ace Perry and Slade Porter. Cassidy watched for much of the bout before inserting himself into the battle, helping his team to a submission win and a ticket into night two.

Brad Attitude then held up festivities with a few moments of self-promotion and loathing on Trevor Lee. After all of these years, I have no idea what's up with Mr. Attitude.

Coach Gemini entered with his All Star team of "Ace" Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins to take on "Handsome" Mitch Connor and Nick Richards in first-round Kernodle Cup action. Slight of hand and inspiration by the self-proclaimed "Greatest Coach of All Time" helped ease the All Stars into the second night of Kernodle Cup competition by pinfall.

So' Time's Dirty Daddy and Snooty Foxx hit the ring to await the unannounced "Team #16" and were shocked when the Dawson Brothers Dave and Zane hit the ring from the back door. A slobberknocker ensued, one part brawl, one part fight, ending in the biggest upset in recent tag team history with the young So' Time eliminating the veteran Dawsons by pinfall.

First round action continued with the Lynch Mob's Joey and Matt Lynch drawing the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful. A mat classic ensued, the kind of match you kind of hope never ends, with both teams fighting for an advantage from bell-to-bell. The Carnies grow their reputation after ref stoppage handed them the ticket to night two of the tournament. The Sportatorium fans did not let the Lynch brothers exit without expressing their desire for them to return again soon.

The final first round bout pitted Lee Valiant & CWF WorldWide TV Champion Aric Andrews against the popular Ugly Ducklings' Lance Lude and Rob Killjoy with Coach Mikey. Valiant and Andrews held court for much of the match, but those lucky duckers used a little added momentum from the crazed crowd to win via pinfall to advance to the Saturday night Finals.

The fans chose the challenger for the first bout of CWF BATTLE BOWL 2017, picking Otto Schwanz to challenge CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews with the title and a spot in the Battle Bowl main event on the line. Andrews continued his streak of successful title defenses and earned a spot in the main event by pinfall.

Ethan Alexander Sharpe joined Schwanz in the ring and announced that Otto was also HIS tag team partner, which was overturned quickly by management, who had a fan select his partner, "Handsome" Mitch Connor at random. Sharpe and Connor did NOT mesh as a team, especially with Connor refusing to partake in violence against a female, which helped the Fury Of Him and Sis advance to Battle Bowl by pinfall.

Dirty Daddy was introduced and then his fan-chosen singles opponent "Ace" Arik Royal. A hard-hitting bout broke out with the both men getting big shots in on the other. Royal survived and advanced to Battle Bowl by pinfall over the game "veteran" Dirty Daddy.

CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs and Mecha Mercenary were introduced and then fans chose their championship challengers, the team of Timmy Danger and Nick Richards. The champions earned their way into Battle Bowl and retained their titles with a pinfall win over the CWF veteran Richards and newcomer Danger.

Coach Gemini presented All Star Roy Wilkins for the evening's featured Scientific Match and the fans drew Movie Maker Myk as his opponent. The rules were explained and the two wowed the fans with their actual wrestling skills before Wilkins earned a spot in Battle Bowl by pinfall.

Captains from six-man tag action were introduced next, with RGL Champion Cain Justice facing off against Snooty Foxx. Fans drew "Party Starter" Keith Mac and newcomer Luke Grimes as teammates for Justice and Russian Vlad Boleshav and "Creepy" Cecil Scott rounded out Team Snooty. Foxx, Boleshav and Scott got a measure of revenge on cocky Cain Justice, eliminating him from Battle Bowl by winning the bout by pinfall.

Ten competitors climbed through the ropes, after Cecil Scott gave up his spot in the main event to Nick Richards, and the over-the-top-rope Battle Bowl main event began. Every winner from the previous matches, and Richards, went to war for the right to represent CWF Mid Atlantic in August's Scenic City Invitational in Chattanooga TN. The Soviet's representative Boleshav was the first eliminated, followed surprisingly by the team of Him and Sis. The All Stars joined forces and were pretty much neutralized by the Sandwich Squad until Mecha's eye injury slowed the robot down. The TV Champion was eliminated, followed by popular Snooty Foxx, leaving only the tag champions, the All Stars and Nick Richards in play.

The All Stars were celebrating the elimination of the Sandwich Squad's Biggs over the top ropes seconds before Roy Wilkins found himself on the floor staring up at the ring, himself eliminated from Battle Bowl. Nick Richards avoided the rage of Royal for a few moments and watched as the "Ace" eliminates Mecha Mercenary from the bout. Reinforcing himself for the final battle, Richards soon found himself eliminated with Arik Royal, Coach Gemini and Jerry Carey celebrating the All Star victory.

Stardate: 02.27.16 3:35 pm

Years ago I was told by a knowledgable wrestling fan that if I didn't keep up with all of the televised pro wrestling angles, stars and programs that I had no business working in pro wrestling. Funny, I've not watched a full episode of ANY pro wrestling program since the night in 2001 that Shane McMahon appeared on WCW's big screen announcing daddy bought them, with the exception of Total NonStop Deletion.

How could I NOT watch that wild episode featuring many of the stars of CWF Mid Atlantic and more friends than I could pick out of a yearbook? My initial reaction was surprise at the silliness of some of the segments and the interaction of well known veterans and locally-known indy wrestlers. I popped hardest when Shane Helms got dunked into the Lake of Reincarnation and came out doing Three Count. Seeing Andrew Everett on a "dot" doing Alex Wright's dance was gold. Also, the punchline delivered seconds before going to credits. Quality timing. If you've only seen bits and pieces of this one, find it on Youtube (I suppose) and watch it all, from beginning to end. And tell me, who had the best line of the show? I'm going with when Broken Matt greets the Rock & Roll Express at the door. The green bean line. That is GOLD.

I was excited years ago when TNA debuted and focused on the X-Division, life-sized pro wrestlers that could flat out go, unlike the old WWE standard of hiring mostly exceptionally large individuals for their programs. Things have changed...TNA is no more (relax, it's Anthem now) and the WWE has embraced both "cruiserweight" sized performers and the breeding ground for real talent, the independent circuit [See also: Cedric Alexander]

The change of focus in the "big" television programs has been a boon for the indies, as we're getting eyes from the whole world now instead of a handful of talent recruiters from the big cities. Our performers are going toe-to-toe with "their" performers on their shows today, something I never thought I'd live to experience. Youtube has opened a whole new market for the indies, as die-hard CWF Mid Atlantic fans can attest. CWF will be taping the 100th episode of #CWFWorldWide early in March. That's weekly episodes. Yeah. And don't forget we were all over local airwaves from 2003-2006 as well. You learn from each experience to build a formula for greater success. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

It appears the indy circuit in the area is doing a great deal of business, with many established companies running fairly regular schedules. Talent is looking for bookings in the hot Carolinas today and many new interesting possibilities are opening up for those who are in it for the long haul. It's a reciprocal effect coming the full circle. So much talent from the Carolinas are the biggest stars in the larger promotions and it's drawing the rest of the world here to find the next diamond in the rough. The same faces I've seen in the rings I work around are all over television and the internet today and it seems to be growing. Excited about the next decade in the Carolinas and the amount of talent that is learning the sport and learning it the right way.

Just to name a few faces I used to see weekends and now see on television, the Revival's Scott Dawson (K.C. McKnight), No Way Jose (Manny Garcia), Cedric Alexander, Adam Page, Nikki Cross (Nikki Storm) and seems one of the original members of the Aftermath is still a force in the WWE Universe, Connor O'Brien (Ryan O'Reilly). Always love seeing friends on television. It's to a point now I may have to consider beginning to watch regularly again...
