With the introduction of the evening's commentary team, CL Party and Khan O'Kelly, action kicked off at CWF NEW YEAR'S KNOCKOUT 2019 with singles action pitting Steampunk Myzery against Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. The Steampunk didn't give TKO the opportunity to show off his hand speed, keeping the match mostly wrestling instead of brawling and trying to maintain control of the match. Ireland Jr. and his fans held out and finished big, with a pinfall victory over Steampunk Myzery to kick off the new year.

Tag team action was up next with Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Ethan A. Sharpe stepping through the ropes to take on the new team of Snooty Foxx and Chris "TNT" Taylor. A hard-hitting battle ensued with both teams using every opportunity to strike their opponent in the ring. The popular Foxx/TNT duo took the momentum of the match and were heading toward a big win when Dirty Daddy introduced a huge amount of some kind of powder and stole a pinfall win for his team.

Donald J. BitDon, Otto Schwanz and Khan O'Kelly entered for the first ever BitDon Rules match, pitting both BitDon and Schwanz against Cain Justice. BitDon Rules indicate a tag is not neccessary to enter the match for Team BitDon and it was a two-on-one match from bell to powder-covered bell. Schwanz switched the Wrestling Machine off and the Punisher Machine on and began tearing into Justice at the direction of the Donald. The double-team began to look somewhat ugly with Justice fading quickly at the hands of the double onslaught. Justice turned the tides and pulled off a pinfall win over both men out of nowhere to a supportive roar from the crowd.

Alexander Moss made his way to the ring to take on the cWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay for the title and a high-impact affair kicked off at the opening bell. Larger opponents may be thrown off to discover that the Sheriff WILL go toe-to-toe with them, but Moss took that attitude as a challenge and rose to it. It took everything from speed, stamina, skill and a little luck to turn the tables on the larger challenger, but "Cowboy" Kool Jay did indeed ride off into the sunset with the RGL Title firmly around his waist via pinfall.

Kozone and Victor Andrews entered to take on the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister in non-title tag team action and a spirited battle ensued. Kozone's recent mean streak and Andrews' attitude combined creates a formidable duo to face and Redemption had their hands full for a non-title match that seemed much more important to all involved. Redemption was the victims of effective double-teams early in the match and found themselves backing up at a couple of points, with one man isolated in the ring. However, the veteran instincts of the champions kicked in and turned the tide in favor of the champions in the non-title bout.

At the bell, the BitDon Corporation's Otto Schwanz, Donald J. BitDon and Khan O'Kelly hit the ring to attack the champions, or to supervise the attack on the champions as the case may be. After several moments of the surprise advantage, the BitDon crew was surprised to find "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Mike Mars clearing THEM from the ring as the BitDon team exited the arena.

Coming back from intermission, CL Party is once again dismissed by Aric Andrews, who prefers monologues over direct interviews. He calls out Kamakazi Kid, who does appear in the ring and then doubles down by bringing his family and children into it. This is not going to end well, folks.

The CWF Worldwide Television Title was on the line next as Mike Mars was chosen to challenge his own tag team partner and TV Champion, "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs. Biggs set the house rules at the first bell, telling Mars they're not wrestling for the belt, they are FIGHTING. And fight they did. They traded blows like sailors on leave and both found themselves on the canvas. Mike Mars began to show a little momentum and the champion turned it against him by returning to "wresltling mode" and dropping Mars on his head with a traditional wreslting move for the pin and the win.

CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee and WWE Legend Shane "Hurricane" Helms were introduced for the main event followed by the All Stars' Arik "Ace" Royal, PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins and entourage and then Brad Attitude. As the two side began to eye each other, Cain Justice enters and stands with Lee and Helms to even the odds. The All Stars demand Trevor Lee put his title on the line, Lee quickly agrees only to have Brad Attitude demand that Lee's title be in play for the whole match if ANY of their team were to be pinned. Lee agreed. Then things got serious.

The top PWI champion and the top CWF champion kicked it off, showing off some of what the CWF Dojo teaches, holds, counters and scientific wrestling. After the teams cycled through tags, Cain Justice was singled out and kept from tagging in Lee or Helms on the ring apron by the All Stars and Attitude. After surviving the pummeling of the combined anger of Attitude, Royal and Wilkins, Justice made the important tag and the troops arrived ready to storm the beaches, eventually regaining the momentum in the main event and turning it up to "11". Cain Justice made the difference and made the win happen for his team, with Lee surviving with the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title still in hand and a masked superhero behind him.

Trevor Lee took the house mic and addressed the rumors on the internet and announced that he has indeed signed a contract with the WWE and will be leaving CWF after Feb. 2nd's CWF STRONGER event in Gibsonville NC, where he will put the title on the line. Jokingly Lee added that if no one beat him for the title, he'd just take it with him to the WWE and defend it there, but he did say that Cain Justice will be involved in the CWF STRONGER bout with the title on the line, but specific details have yet to be released on the match itself other than the date.

"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

The first event of the 2019 calendar year kicked off at the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium with Cain Justice calling out his former partner, Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe. Sharpe never responded and instead, CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee entered and told Justice that he would wrestle him, right then, with the title on the line. And a new classic broke out in the opener at an RGL event...

A physical mostly-scientific battle erupted on the canvas between teacher and student with young Cain Justice proving he has indeed learned the lessons he's been taught over the course of his time in the ring. Chain wrestling happened, submission wrestling happened mixed in with some high-impact blows and kicks. It took nearly thirty minutes for Trevor Lee to force his student Cain Justice to tap out, ending the match. Lee picked up Justice and explained to the fans in attendance and on Twitch that Cain Justice was the future of CWF Mid-Atlantic.

Fatal Four-Way action was introduced with debuting Wilson Phillips, Number Man, debuting Alex Kane and Snooty Foxx going to war in and out of the ring at the sound of the bell. It began with four in the ring, then split into two in the ring with two on the floor and various combinations thereafter before Snooty Foxx got a three-count pinfall win over Phillips to decide the match.

Mike Mars hit a speed bump in singles action, drawing debuting Trey Havoc, who came to work ready to wrestle. The big youngster refused to back down from the only slightly bigger Mars and seemed to really enjoy dishing out punishment whenever the opportunity presented itself. Mars fired up late and finished off the impressive Havoc by pinfall after taking the brunt of the brutality of the bout.

Tag team action was introduced with Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy entering to take on the debuting team of the Rednexians' Bobby Flacco and Kavron Kanyon. The newcomers left a mark on the Sportatorium with their versatility and variety of moves and with the help of Cain Justice's water bottle, also picked up a victory over Corruption in their debut match at CWF Mid-Atlantic by pinfall.

Big Bellamy Koga entered next to challenge CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay for the belt. The big man changed up his normal assault, going from kicks to the legs to kicks to the arms, catching the Sheriff off-guard early on and slowing any ideas he had of taking control of the match. Koga piled on the offense as the Cowboy tried to shake off the effects of the previous attacks and seemed to be making no progress for much of the bout before kicking it into high gear and finally getting a pinfall over Bellamy Koga to retain the title.

The main event singles bout was introduced, with Ulysse "OPA" Demos drawing his own tag team partner Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. as his opponent for his farewell match. The two training partners put on a "who can top that" exhibition, each doing the series of moves performed by the other before breaking loose into a mat wrestling bout. Ireland won the the match by pinfall and the room fell into a hush. Ulysse took the house mic and said farewell to the fans here in the USA, but not "goodbye" as he reveals he does intend to return to CWF Mid-Atlantic at his earliest opportunity. Safe travels my friend! See you soon!

Three Titles Change Hands At CWF Mid-Atlantic's 19th Anniversary Spectacular BATTLECADE XIX!

12.29.18

Lovely ladies C.L. Party and Chasity Taylor kicked off CWF BATTLECADE XIX by introducing singles action pitting the incredible Bobby Wohlfert with Monkey against powerful Kozone. Kozone seemed taken back for a few moments by Wohlfert's antics, style(s) and manager in the corner, a stuffed monkey with an incredible tag title record. Kozone relied on his power-based skills while Wohlfert adapted and went a completely different direction (several times, actually), eventually taking the larger Kozone to the canvas for a pinfall win.

Next up was a Four-Way Battle for a shot at the CWF WorldWide Television Championship at a future event, with Donald J. BitDon entering, followed by Chris "TNT" Taylor, Mike Mars and Snooty Foxx. All four brawled inside and outside of the ring, with the BitDon CEO spending more time outside of the ring than in. As the tide of battle rolled on, Mike Mars was able to win the title shot by pinfall over Taylor while Foxx and BitDon were on the floor.

All Star announcer Jarry Carey was out next to introduce All Star Mace Li to take on veteran CWF Champion Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega in grudge match action. Li kept his distance, hit and ran and kept his opponent chasing him early in the match, but soon found himself being covered like a blanket by a submission wrestler intent on getting a measure of revenge for past transgressions. The match appeared to be pretty even until Ortega turned Mace Li over on the canvas and forced a quick tap-out submission.

Magnificent Seven RGL Shoot Out action was introduced (it was a Six-Shooter, right?), with one of the seven scheduled competitors actually never answering the bell. So after introductions, Kyler Myzery, Bellamy Koga, Alexander Moss, "Cowboy" Kool Jay, "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. and RGL Champion Ulysse "OPA" Demos went at it for the title. Wrestling broke out in and out of the ring in the packed and sold out Sportatorium and nearly every pinfall attempt was broken up by a third competitor. When the smoke cleared, former two-time CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay saddled up and rode off into the sunset with the title belt firmly around his waist once again.

Another grudge match is introduced, pitting Smith Garrett, fresh off of a long injury-related absence, against his so-called "best friend" Ric Converse. Garrett ran a little, deferred a little and struck like a rattlesnake when an opportunity showed itself. "The 1st" Ric Converse kept on the offensive, eventually busting open his rival, who fell to the canvas screaming in pain holding his ankle. PWI's William L. Cross came to ringside demanding the referee stop the match and award it to Converse, but Garrett begged off, eventually catching Converse with his guard down and dropping him to the canvas for a pinfall win from a surprise kick.

Tag team action was up next with the team of "Pitbull" Steven Idol and PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins taking on the veteran team of "High Definition" Steve Greene and Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride. McBride blistered the chest of the Pitbull in the corner and he was fortunate enough to be fast enough to escape having his oil checked a moment later. The PWI Champion didn't decide to actually participate until late in the match, but the damage had already been done to his tag partner, allowing the High Def Boogie Mens a pinfall win.

Another grudge match was introduced pitting Aric Andrews against former CWF Champ Kamakazi Kid. The masked man started off fast and furious, with fists and feet landing in the vicinity of Andrews' face. Andrews slowed the fight down to his speed and started leaning hard on Kazi, eventually driving him into the canvas for a pinfall win after well over ten minutes of battle.

CWF Worldwide Television Champion Otto Schwanz was out next accompanied by BitDon CEO Donald J. BitDon and Director of Marketing Khan O'Kelly to take on the challenge of the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs. It was almost as if the impossible happened when the big Schwanz realized that Biggs wasn't going to back down and appeared to be injured enough to start favoring a limb. It was a head butt that secured the title for the Beast, however, as that's what finally took the veteran champion off of his feet for the final time.

One of the newest representatives of PWI International, Brian Hughes, was introduced and then in turn introduced the special guest referee for the next contest, Andrew Everett. The "Southern Savior" John Skyler was then introduced, followed by PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion "Skywalker" Cam Carter for a highly-anticipated battle of skills and wrestling styles. The Extreme Horseman Skyler went full combat mode at the bell and early on seemed to have taken a leg away from the high-flying fan-favorite Carter. With the final seconds of the match ticking away on the big screen, Skyler got the pinfall over Cam Carter and then demanded Everett to raise his hand.

CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team title action was up next with the Corruption team of Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy signed the dotted line to take on Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister. Cain Justice, still on crutches, entered and went to the corner and was soon ordered to leave by his own "partner" Sharpe, who was surprisingly backed up by the referee. In a dramatic turn, it appeared that finally...FINALLY...Sharpe's vaunted "plan" was about to actually work, with Corruption winning the Mid-Atlantic Tag Titles. That's when Cain Justice returned to the ring and wrapped a crutch around the head of Sharpe, moments later Redemption retains the titles by pinfall.

With everything that has been written, everything that had been discussed, everyone in the sold out Sportatorium was on the edge of their seats for the introduction of CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee and Golden Ticket Challenger All Star "Ace" Arik Royal. The only rule for the match was that it must end with a pinfall. It could not end any other way, so no count-outs or DQs by rule. With the door open for "legal" outside interference, the All Stars' Mace Li joined in attacking the champion as did eventually Jarry Carey and Coach Gemini. Lee kept dispatching the "extra" All Stars only to see Royal bearing down on him once agaion.

Trevor Lee got thrown to the floor and was mobbed by the All Stars and crawled back into the ring busted open to the horror of the fans. He didn't quit. He didn't back down. So PWI Heavyweight Champ Roy Wilkins returns with a kendo stick and attacks Lee again as a fresh antagonist in the ring. Trevor Lee kept somehow sending the All Stars fleeing, and eventually tossed enough of them out of the ring to pin big Arik Royal without someone breaking the count.

Trevor asked for the house mic and addressed the fans, dedicating the night's match to his late father. Brad Attitude slipped into the ring with a steel chair and rudely interrupted the champion, sitting in his familiar place in the center of the ring with the house mic after wiping Lee out. A figure from the VIP section rose and made his way to the ring, climbed in and choke-slammed Brad Attitude, and kids, it was a real live superhero! Shane "Hurricane" Helms cleared the ring of the Brad Attitude threat and helped Trevor Lee to his feet as the crowd roared.

And if you've NOT watched yet, the Twitch Aftershow sponsored by the BitDon Corporation and hosted by Khan O'Kelly is a ratings HIT! Tune in folks!

Nick Richards Wins The Deon Graves Memorial Battle Royal at the Special Multi-Promotion Benefit Event at the Sportatorium!

A Special Photo Extra!

Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium

Gibsonville, NC

12.15.18

With less than two weeks of preparation, Benefit Championship Wrestling and CWF Mid-Atlantic presented the DEON GRAVES MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL BENEFIT at the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium. A vocal supportive crowd arrived to support Graves' surviving family and to be entertained with some high-flying hard-hitting pro wrestling action.

Singles action kicked off the evening's contests with the popular "Cowboy" Kool Jay out to take on the masked 2018 Model Number Man. The size advantage of the "most cut Number Man in history" didn't cause the Cowboy to back down for even a second, as he rode the range and finished off the masked rustler with a convincing pinfall.

Donnie BitDon entered next for singles action, scooping up the Number Man and placing him in his own corner as his opponent Mike Mars is introduced. The two big men collided in the center of the ring and the building shook as the mastadons roared and brawled. Mars took a late advantage which caused the masked man at ringside to become involved, giving every helping hand possible out of the view of the rookie referee. The BitDon Corporation's assets bumped up once again with a big pinfall win over Mike Mars, regardless of the circumstances.

Tag team action was introduced next, pitting the current Corruption lineup of Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy against the popular TKOPA team of Ulysee Demos and Teddy Ireland Jr. Cain Justice entered as a second for Corruption and did running commentary from the floor at ringside as the fight got heated. The four went to battle with Ireland show off his handspeed to Dirty Daddy and Sharpe tried to control the match from both the ring and the apron. Justice, on the floor, begins explaining what the flaws of the "plan" are to Sharpe as Dirty Daddy tags in. Justice gets the last laugh at his own team as TKOPA takes a big pinfall win from the more seasoned Corruption team.

A Special Attraction Non-Title Singles bout was introduced, pitting two major champions against each other. PWI International Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins entered to take on CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee with no seconds in either corner as they renew their incredible series of contests. Trevor Lee started out quick, taking control at the bell and tormenting Wilkins on the canvas and while standing. Wilkins took a moment to sort out the situation and began returning the torment with his own brand of offensive wrestling in a surprisingly close match. Lee kept to his plan of attack and actually forced the PWI Champion to submit in the middle of the ring for a big non-title win.

Young A.J. Daniels answered the bell to take on veteran All Star "Ace" Arik Royal for the new American Lucha Wrestling Heavyweight Championship and a contrast of styles immediately became visible. Daniels actually expressed a couple of times during the physical portions of the bout "Lucha! Lucha!" but the ground-and-pound Royal steamroller continued to roll forward from bell to bell. Royal didn't get much of a chance to toy with the lightning quick Daniels, as he was one of the most elusive opponents Royal has faced in recent memory, but he did got his shots in and was able to pin the shoulders of A.J. Daniels to become the first ALW World Heavyweight Champion.

Twelve men stepped into the fray for the main event DEON GRAVES MEMORIAL BATTLE ROYAL for an over-the-top-rope battle for the Graves Memorial Trophy. Trey Havok, Number Man and Donnie BitDon were the first three eliminated with the "Wild Thing" Larry Isley exiting next. Both members of TKOPA, Teddy Ireland Jr. and Ulysse Demos were then eliminated followed by an early favorite, Snooty Foxx. When it got down to the final four competitors, only Corruption's Ethan Sharpe and Dirty Daddy stood against Mike Mars and Nick Richards. Mars was ganged up on and sent to the floor and Sharpe goes to the floor and procures a steel chair for an assault on Richards. Nick Richards saw him coming, grabbed the chair while Cain Justice ran in from the lobby and eliminated Dirty Daddy, and sends Sharpe to the floor to win the main event.

Richards spent several minutes sharing memories of Deon Graves with everyone in attendance before the fans broke up into smaller groups before exiting the arena.

BREAKING NEWS! Benefit Championship Wrestling, CWF Mid-Atlantic and American Lucha Wrestling helped raise $810.00 in donations for the Deon Graves family, all under the direction of BCW founder Jimmy Harris, give the man a hand!

CWF BATTLECADE XIX was beyond expectations and 2019 is running head-long right at us! We'll do our best to announce the 2018 Insiders Awards announcements in coming days too, it's that time of the year already! Stay tuned...

UPDATE! The evolution of the CEO of the BitDon Corporation is now complete with reveal of his new name, Donald J. BitDon. Along with Director of Marketing Khan O'Kelly, Donald J. BitDon is ready to show you how to become a major player in the crypto-currency game. Accept no substitutes, BitDon already has an imitator online, so contact him personally to get your BitDon account started!

Is it obvious how much joy I get seeing BOTH of my beautiful dolls doing announcing in the ring together? It makes my whole day and the fans seem to enjoy them as much as I do, judging from the vocal response they always get. Chasity Taylor was my first "chick" protege, the brightest and quickest at picking up the details, and a warm soul I always enjoy spending time around. Christie (C.L. Party) is my current charge, one which I really do nothing more than take credit for, as she's as comfortable in the ring or in front of a camera as anyone I know and she's a lot of fun to be around. And people wonder why I keep on working in the "rasslin' biz"? Come on!

It's became real, IndyInsiders.Com got notice this past week that it's time to renew the ol' domain name again. It's been two whole years already? Again? Seems like I'm doing this every 6 months or so...Back to the grind!

The year 2019 begins with the loss of a new friend, who will be making his way back across the Atlantic to return home to France before his visa expires. Not so much a loss, really, as everyone who has met and interacted with Ulysse "OPA" Demos has been transformed into friends almost immediately. But it's gonna be odd not having his light-hearted joking attitude around soaking up knowledge like a sponge in a handful of days. I can only wish him safe travels, bon voyage and that he enjoyed his time here as much as we enjoyed having him here. I'm still gonna run up to random folks sometimes, raise my hand and yell "OPA!" for the rest of my life. Pretty sure of that.

See you at ringside kids!
