The Aftermath's Ric Converse and Chet Sterling interrupted the pre-event activities to present their cases to the fans for the upcoming anniversary event BattleCade X-8.

In-ring action began with a six-man tag bout pitting Ethan Alexander Sharpe, Mike Mars and Kool J against CWF RGL Champion Dirty Daddy, Snooty Foxx and "Party Starter" Keith Mac. Ethan Sharpe led his team to victory by pinfall in the night's opener.

Brad Attitude answered the challenge of Chet Sterling via the video screen, agreeing to face him at CWF BattleCade X-8 from the ACC Championship game.

Christmas presents were then distributed to six of CWF's favorites, with Nick Richards and Michael McAllister unwrapping Mid Atlantic Tag Team shots against the Dawsons and Cam Carter unwrapped his second opportunity to challenge Jesse Adler for the CWF Worldwide Television Championship.

Jesse Adler hit the ring to take on the winner of the challenge, facing off against impressive Cam Carter for the second time with the title on the line. Both men took to the air during this outing with Adler standing tall after a pinfall win.

PWI President William L. Cross was introduced and he addressed the fact that PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Logan Easton Laroux refusing to defend his belt at the Sportatorium. After being interrupted by Laroux on video, Cross ordered Laroux to appear at CWF BattleCade X-8 to defend his title against former two-time champion Andrew Everett!

CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers' Zane and Dave Dawson hit the ring and after seeing Nick Richards and Michael McAllister standing across the ring, thought they were being pranked. A brawl erupted and it took several minutes before the referee would even call for the bell. When the match began, Richards and McAllister went straight at the champions, who responded in kind, winning by pinfall to retain their titles.

The Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs and Mecha Mercenary entered to clear the ring and threw down a challenge for Last Man Standing tag title bout at CWF BattleCade X-8 to the Dawsons, who accept the challenge.

The "People's Choice" Aric Andrews entered as CWF Officials were prepared to draw the chellenger for CWF Worldwide Television Champion Jesse Adler, offering his assistance in the task. With the help of Andrews, the name was drawn for BattleCade, when the All Star's "Ace" Arik Royal will challenge Jesse Adler for his belt.

All Star Mace Li entered to rub a little salt in the wound of Andrews and found himself in an impromptu singles bout against Andrews. Li took the tide of battle to the former TV Champ but the suddenly popular "People's Choice" came away with a quick pinfall win.

Joey Lynch makes his return to the Sportatorium to take on young Cain Justice in singles action. A grappling bout erupted, with both men showing off their mat wrestling skills and educated feet. In a marathon of brutal shots, Cain Justice maintained his bearings and forced Lynch to submit well past the fifteen minute mark of the bout. Afterwards, Nick Richards approached the ring and threw down the gauntlet for a match at BattleCade X-8, which the cocky Justice accepted.

Coach Gemini led his All Star team of Roy Wilkins and "Ace" Arik Royal to the ring to take on the Aftermath's Ric Converse and Chet Sterling in a bit of a revenge match for the Aftermath. After more than twenty minutes of war, the All Stars win by pinfall and PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson enters the ring. Referee Kevin Pierce was taken down first by spinebuster and then rolled out of the center of the ring by the PWI Champ. Anderson jumped on Ric Converse in the corner and handcuffed him to the turnbuckles, grabbed a steel chair and threatened anyone who wanted to stop him with their life.

Anderson eventually sat in the chair out of arm's reach of Converse and asked him if he had been talking about retiring from wrestling. Then announced he would indeed give Converse the title shot, but only if Converse put his own career up against it. Converse hesitated, then countered, saying he'd put his career on the line against the PWI strap only if the match is fought under "I Quit" rules. Anderson got red-faced before finally accepting Converse's terms and left the arena in a storm.

"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

CWF ULTIMATE SURVIVOR 2017 kicked off with the traditional 16-Man Torneo Cibernetico pitting two teams of eight in elimination-style action that can have only one winner. Stokley Hathaway returned with his Dream Team of Cain Justice, Ethan Alexander Sharpe, "Prince of Broadway" Frankie Flynn, Joshua Cutshall, "Excellence Personified" Brian Carson, Philly Collins and Marino Tenaglia to take on the team of co-captains CWF Worldwide Television Champion Jesse Adler and CWF RGL Champion Dirty Daddy's squad of Nick Richards, Michael McAllister, "Handsome" Mitch Connor, Cam Carter, Vanguard's "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart and Caprice Coleman.

Well over a half-hour into the night's opener, Ethan Alexander Sharpe found himself surviving against Dirty Daddy and Jesse Adler, played it smart and survived to eliminate both men to win the Torneo Cibernetico.

Metallico, Number Boy and Kool J were introduced for three-on-one handicap action against big Mike Mars. Mars eliminated each of the three, finishing off Number Boy for elimination number three in right at three minutes for the win.

Thirteen year CWF veteran Donnie Dollar$ asked for the house mic to throw out a challenge for singles action to give him the chance to regain some of his momentum. The room screamed when the man answering the challenge turned out to be "Assassin" Ray Kandrack, who stormed to the ring and finished off Dollar$ in under two minutes.

Five-on-five elimination action was out next with the host's seat on CWF Worldwide on the line, pitting Team CL Party's Snooty Foxx, Faye Jackson, Mecha Mercenary and Aaron Biggs against Team Jerry Carey's All Stars Mace Li, Otto Schwanz, Roy Wilkins and "Ace" Arik Royal with Coach Gemini at ringside. The All Stars seemed to have momentum early in the match despite suffering the first elimination, Mace Li, they responded by eliminating Jackson and Foxx to take a numbers advantage. Schwanz, Wilkins and Royal were eliminated in order, leaving Jarry Carey to face CL Party and both members of the Sandwich Squad for a hosting job. Party got the last laugh and kept her job by forcing Carey to submit.

The Triathlon Survivor main event was introduced next with CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee making his way to the ring. PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson was introduced as his opponent, but before the bell rang, Anderson retreated to the floor and Brad Attitude hit the ring to attack Lee. Attitude and Lee got nasty quick and eventually Attitude got the shoulders of Lee pinned. Attitude refused to stop his barrage on Lee after the bell and the referee was forced to give Lee the win by disqualification.

C.W. Anderson and Zane Dawson began beating on Lee as "the 1st" Ric Converse runs in to make the save, with the official eventually ringing the bell for the two-on-two second fall to begin. Anderson and Dawson defeat Lee and Converse by pinfall to even the score and to require a three-on-three deciding fall. As Chet Sterling runs into the building to join the Trevor Lee and Ric Converse team, he's attacked by Dawson and thrown out the back door of the Sportatorium. Attitude, Anderson and Dawson then went to work on dismantling Trevor Lee and possibly injure him.

Sterling makes a late appearance to shift the momentum in the third fall, taking all three opponents to the canvas before getting caught and spiked into the canvas. That's about the time the All Stars' Roy Wilkins and Coach Gemini enter and Wilkins busts open Trevor Lee on the floor at ringside with brass knuckles. The Alliance of Anderson, Dawson and Attitude continued their onslaught until the very end, winning the deciding fall to end the night's carnage.

Bloodied and emotional, Trevor Lee shared his mindset with the fans at ringside, including demanding a first-ever First Blood Rules match for his title against Roy Wilkins at CWF BattleCade X-8 before exiting for the evening.

Ron Anderson began the afternoon's festivities with his wonderful performance of the National Anthem.

Beastly Brody took on Chris "TNT" Taylor in opening match singles action, setting the pace for a hard-hitting afternoon of pro wrestling action. Taylor took the duke to a roar from the fans.

Veteran Tre-G returned to the ring to take on So Time's Snooty Foxx in one-on-one action. Despite his ringside second continually interfering, Snooty Foxx took down the veteran for a pinfall win. The official then discovered brass knuckles in the tights of Foxx, reversing his decision giving Tre-G the win.

Mid Atlantic Outlaws' Matt Houston was out next to take on WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton in singles action. Morton, who seemed especially anxious to speak to the fans, turned his attention to Houston and made the match nearly unbearable for him before winning by pinfall.

The Dawson Brothers Zane and Dave Dawson were out next to take on the fan-favorite Ugly Ducklings' Rob Killjoy and Lance Lude w/Coach Mikey. A wild quacking battle broke out and the Ducks found themselves ending up with a surprising pinfall win over the hard-as-nails Dawsons.

Three-way singles action was up next pitting "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart against Nick Richards and Cain Justice. In a strange series of attacks Cain Justice somehow managed to sneak out with a win against his two more seasoned opponents.

CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee was out next to take on one half of the GymNasty Boys, "White" Mike Jordan in non-title singles action. In an entertaining battle, Trevor Lee finally took control late in the match and forced "White" Mike to submit.

The Brute's Mark James was introduced next to take on PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson in non-title singles action. The Brute went toe-to-toe with the Rottweiler and they nearly tore the ring down. Anderson had his hand raised after a pinfall win, leaving James' wrestling calendar blank after months of contemplating his retirement from the ring.

"Southern Saviour" John Skyler, Tracer X, Chet Sterling and "Ace" Arik Royal were introduced for a special four-way elimination battle for the vacant BCW Heavyweight Championship. The popular Tracer X was eliminated first, followed by Skyler, the hands-on favorite to win the title. The Ace held up his end of the match and put eliminated Chet Sterling by pinfall to become the new BCW Champion.

Extreme Horseman Damien Wayne was out for the main event career-vs-career battle against former BCW Champion Lee Valiant. Both men left it all on the canvas, blood sweat and more in a harshly physical battle for their chosen livelihood. Tears flowed when the bell sounded and the often controversial Lee Valiant's career came to an end.

Former CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews made a campaign appearance prior to the first bout and actually chose the night's challenger for the title. CWF Worldwide TV Champ Jesse Adler entered to discover he was facing Ivan Ali per the blind draw. Ali hit the ring and took advantage of his rare opportunity, but fell short with Adler retaining the title by pinfall.

The 2017 Rising Generation League Tournament kicked off with first-round action pitting "Pitbull" Steven Idol against current RGL Champion Dirty Daddy. The Pitbull continued to make an impression on the fans and opponents, but came up just short, with Daddy advancing by pinfall.

First-round RGL Tournament action then pitted All Star Mace Li with Jarry Carey against the masked Metallico. Li advanced to the second round by a submission win over the masked man.

Big Mike Mars was introduced for first-round tournament action to face off with Kool J. Mars missed a big clothesline early on and took a boot to the mouth in the last minute of the match, but otherwise manhandled his smaller opponent before pinning him to advance to the second round.

"Filmmaker" Movie Myk with Big Zoe entered next to battle Big Time Yah in first-round RGL Tournament action. This one could have gone overtime, maybe twice, as both men are eliminated from the tornament due to exceeding the time limit. This advances Mike Mars to the RGL Final at CWF BattleCade 18 in December.

Lee Valiant made his way to the ring to take on "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart in a special attraction singles battle. About five minutes in, Valiant appeared to be missing a cylinder and Lockhart turned on the overdrive to win by pinfall.

All Star Mace Li returned to the ring to battle CWF RGL Champ Dirty Daddy for a shot at Mike Mars at BattleCade 18. Li took a quick advantage, attacking Daddy on the floor at ringside, but it just fired up the Dirty Daddy. Daddy advanced to the RGL Showdown against Mike Mars, who made his way to the ring to get in his face in an act of intimidation.

Ten-man RGL Survivor action pitted Ethan Alexander Sharpe, "Filmmaker" Movie Myk, Big Zoe, Cain Justice and Number Boy against Snooty Foxx, Bellamy Koga, Wes Rogers, "Playboy" Bobby Ballentyne & newcomer "Mr. Second To None" Dajuan O'Neal. Snooty Foxx and partner Dajuan O'Neal pinned Ethan Sharpe and Cain Justice at the same time to survive and win the RGL Survivor main event.

Stardate: 05.01.17 1:47 pm

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!
