The newcomers left an impression on the fans, with Wristlock showing off an actual variety of wristlocks and the Mighty Vic looking powerful and strong, but the Corruption took the duke by forcing a submission.
An RGL Triple Threat match was introduced next with All Star Mace Li and Coach Gemini entering to take on both newcomer Mason Tyler and Dirty Daddy. A hard-hitting bout ensued with all three men getting their shots in before Dirty Daddy got the pinfall win.
Newcomer "the Reflection" Deon Murphy entered for singles action against Snooty Foxx and quickly discovered you don't take on the big man face-to-face. Murphy altered his stradegy and began hitting and running, aiming at the legs and mobility of Foxx, taking him to the canvas in pain. Foxx recovered and rebounded, finishing off the impressive youngster by pinfall.
Following intermission, Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Cain Justice entered and demanded a microphone, which they immediately began abusing fans with. Buy my shirt. After listening to yacking for several minutes So Time's Snooty Foxx and Dirty Daddy fired into the ring looking to answer a challenge that had not yet been made. Tag team action broke out and a physical confrontation erupted in the ring. Foxx and Dirty took the lead in the match but saw it slip away with Corruption winning their second bout of the evening by pinfall.
All Star "Ace" Arik Royal along with Coach Gemini and "Most Honorable" Mace Li entered for singles action against Redemption's Michael McAllister. A surprisingly violent bout broke out with McAllister taking a quick advantage with Royal backing up. Royal, with a little help from his friends, turned the match around to his liking and tried to force McAllister to quit, which never happened. McAllister and Royal battled back and forth but the Ace had a numbers advantage and used it to help cement a pinfall win.
Hombre Uno entered for the main event with tag partner Hombre Dos to challenge "Cowboy" Kool Jay for the CWF Rising Generation League Championship. After the initial lockup, the Hombres huddled away from the ring and a different one entered the match. The referee looked confused, and let it ride until Dos exited the ring and Uno returned. The masked men from south of the border continued their shenanigans trying to wear down and finish off the champion, but Kool Jay kept gettin back to his feet every time the Hombres thought he was finished. Cowboy Kool Jay continued his hot streak, retaining his title over both Hombres and then having an improptu Cowboy Country Jam Session in the middle of the ring with the original Sons of the Pioneers.

"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 "Pride of the USA" Don Kernodle and Rocky Kernodle kicked off the 2018 KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMANET at the afternoon matinee session by welcoming the fans to the second annual event.
First-round action kicked off with High Profiles' Willy D and Shea Shea McGrady squaring off against the Gymnasty Boys' "White" Mike Jordan and Timmy Lou Retton for a spot in the quarter-finals. In an entertaining and hard-hitting bout, the Gym Nastys advance by pinfall.
Los Chicanos' Jon and Jeff Castro returned to battle the Cross Brothers' Aden and Christian Cross in first-round action. Both teams showed off their talents but the Original Cholos took the duke to advance to the quarter-finals.
Otto Wrestling Machine and All Star Mace Li were out next to tussle with the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful in first-round action. A battle of wills ensued with the bizarre Carnies advancing to the quarter-finals by pinfall.
Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Cain Justice entered for the final first-round bout to take on Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards with William L. Cross. After weeks of positioning themselves for this very event, Redemption eliminated them by pinfall to move into the quarter-finals.
Quarter-finals action pits the first four winning teams against the entrants with first-round byes, so Los Chicanos entered to take on CWF Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee and Chet Sterling for a spot in the semi-finals. Lee and Sterling take the duke to advance to the evening session of the tournament.
Kerry Awful and Nick Iggy return to take on "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and CWF RGL Champion Kool Jay. One half of last year's champions, Biggs, was unable to make it to the semis after the Carnies eliminated them by pinfall to advance to the evening session.
Chikara Tag Team Champions the Closers' Rick Roland and Sloan Caprice entered next to take on the popular Gym Nasty Boys' Timmy Lou Retton and "White" Mike for a spot in the semi-finals later in the evening. This match was both elegant and brutal, it was hard-hitting and displayed finesse, and a wonder to see. The powerhouse Closers reserve their spot in the night session by pinfall over the Gym Nastys.
Coach Gemini's All Stars entered Roy Wilkins and "Ace" Arik Royal to go to war with Redemptions' Nick Richards and Michael McAllister for the last spot in the semi-finals. Despite both men taking damage, William L. Cross' team advanced to the evening session by pinfall.
About an hour and a half later, the evening session of the tournament began, with 2018 KERNODLE BROTHER TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT semi-final action pitting the Closers against Redemption for a spot in the main event championship match. The incredible power and stamina of the Chikara Tag Champions was on full display with the deciding pinfall coming in under six minutes cementing their spot in the main event.
The second semi-final match kicked off after the introductions of the Carnies' Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful and opponents Chet Sterling and CWF Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee. The popular Carnies found their night at an end after the Lee-Sterling team sealed the deal to face the Closers in the Final of the 2018 KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT.
Singles action was out next pitting All Star Roy Wilkins and entourage against Dirty Daddy. Dirty got a quick attitude and roared into control before Wilkins slowed the pace and took the veteran to the canvas for the pin.
Four-way Rising Generation League Championship action was introduced, with the All Stars' Mace Li presented by Jarry Carey before the introduction of Los Chicanos' Original Cholos Uno y Dos, Jon and Jeff Castro. Cowboy Kool Jay sashayed to the ring and wowed the fans with his new western look and attitude. Then he took it into the ring and survived a basically three-on-one battle for his own title riding into the sunset afterward with the title firmly in hand.
A special eight-man match was introduced featuring standouts from the day's first session, pitting High Profile and Corruption against the Gym Nasty Boys and the Cross Brothers. A high-flying lightning fast fireball erupted and lit the arena. High Profiles' Willy D and Shea Shea McGrady and Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan Sharpe took a double tap out win over the Gym Nasty's Timmy Lou Retton and "White" Mike Jordan and the Cross Brothers' Christian and Aden Cross.
Mike Mars and "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs were introduced for singles action and two bull elephants fought for dominance from bell to bell, or until neither could continue. Both men were counted out near the ten minute mark after beating the living hades out of each other with fists, feet and head butts.
The Final of the 2018 KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT was introduced with the Closers squaring off against Chet Sterling and CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee. The powerful Chikara champions took control early and manhandled both Lee and Sterling, setting a tone where the local fans' favorites didn't appear to have much of a chance whatsoever. Sterling fired up late, caught Sloan Caprice with an elbow in the corner and turned the tide of the match, and winning the tournament with the deciding pinfall.
Following the match, the Kernodle Brothers and William L. Cross entered the ring with the Kernodle Cup trophy to make the presentation. Lee remained on his knees and revealed he'd been sick for days but refused to miss the opportunity to perform for the people and the Kernodles. Sterling shook hands with the Kernodles, took the Cup and exited stating he was still the Johnny Weaver Cup Champion and that sometimes even Trevor Lee has a bad day.

Six tag teams entered the ring in a Tag Team Battle Royal Rules bout for a guaranteed bye in the first round of the 2018 KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT. The first four eliminations are Battle Royal rules, over the top rope, and the final two teams square off for a deciding tag rules match to determine the winner. Ethan A. Sharpe and Cain Justice; Aaron Epic and Abel; Otto Wrestling Machine and Donnie Dollar$; RGL Champion Kool Jay and Dirty Daddy; Aaron Biggs and Snooty Foxx and Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards brawled at the bell with the Redemption team and the Sharpe/Justice duo eliminated first. Otto and Dollar$ were eliminated next, followed by Kool Jay and Dirty Daddy, leaving Aaron Epic and Abel to battle Aaron Biggs and Snooty Foxx for the final fall. The "Rampaging Beast" Biggs and "Beast In Training" Foxx took the duke and the guarnateed bye in the Kernodle Tournament.
Aspen "the Mermaid" Rose was out next for ladies action against newcomer the "Babe With The Power" Willow Nightingale. In a high-spirited bout, the Power took the final advantage over the Mermaid, winning by a powerful pinfall.
CWF Golden Ticket holder Aric Andrews entered next for singles action against the Mid Atlantic Outlaws' Matt Houston. The two veterans put on a clinic and had a match that momentum ebbed and flowed from bell to bell. It flowed toward Aric Andrews allowing him to pull off a pinfall win over Matt Houston.
Six man tag team action was introduced with Coach O'Gemini presenting "Ace" Arik Royal, Mace Li & Chikara Tag Champion Rick Roland to take on Chet Sterling, the Proletariat Boar of Moldova and Ol' Juke Joint Lucas Calhoun. An incredible battle ensued with each man receiving what he had given out moments before, including the stunning actions of Coach O'Gemini, who entered the ring to challenge Calhoun to a martial arts match. The All Stars won the match by virtue of numbers, pulling off a pinfall win under shady circumstances.
Logan Easton Laroux made his return to the Sportatorium to find himself across the ring from one of the hottest young properties in the indies, Cam Carter. High flyer Carter and preppy Laroux put on an interesting contest that displayed the two competitors' differences and similarities. Cam Carter turned the tide to take the duke by pinfall over the improved Laroux, which seemed greatly appreciated by the fans. William L. Cross entered with the house mic to inform Cam Carter that he'd already caught the eye of PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Andrew Everett and would very likely be given a title shot in the near future.
The challenger for the CWF Worldwide Television Championship was drawn and Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered with partner-in-crime Cain Justice in tow. TV Champion Shane "Hurricane" Helms made his entrance and reacted when he learned Justice would remain at ringside, calling out his friend PWI International Heavyweight Champion Ric Converse, he joined him in his corner at ringside in street clothes. Converse' presence must have fixed the karma, as the Hurricane blew through Sharpe with a pinfall at the sixteen-second mark of the match.
Helms took the house mic and stated he hadn't even broken a sweat and asked Alexander and Justice if they'd like to have a little tag match against himself and Converse and a referee hit the ring to officiate. Helms did get separated from his corner for a segment of the bout, but Converse held court when he made it in legally to change the tide of battle. The Helms-Converse Connection took the pinfall win in just over ten minutes in bonus tag team action.
The Dawson Brothers entered for Open Challenge Tag Team Title action and demanded the challengers be "larger than RGL Champion Kool Jay". They were surprised to see "Assassin" Ray Kandrack answer the challenge and then introduce his partner Mike Mars. One of the hardest-hitting contests in years erupted with the Dawsons in a position where they didn't have their usual size advantage over their opponents. Mike Mars found himself on a bum leg late after assaults on it by Dave Dawson and that opened the door to a Dawson Brothers pinfall win. Kandrack questioned Mars after the bout, Mars shoved him away and exited without comment.
"Southern Savior" John Skyler entered for his challenge for Trevor Lee's CWF Mid Atlantic Unified Heavyweight Championship, with Lee following moments later. The fans, while solidly behind the champion, understood the gravity of the night after Skyler assaulted Lee in Chapel Hill to force the issue. With no time limit the two felt each other out early, with Skyler taking numerous trips to the floor to break the champion's momentum. The two locked up and worked over body parts like the Anderson Brothers taught, with both men taking damage. Referee Charles Richardson was KO'd at the 36 minute mark by a Trevor Lee boot after John Skyler saw it coming and ducked out of the way. Even with the help of a shot with the huge Mid Atlantic Title belt, Skyler was unable to fend off the wrath of an angry and hurt champion, with Trevor Lee forcing the submission with the STF after the 42 minute mark.

The night began with Chapel Hill's own Jay Math performing the National Anthem before tag team action was introduced, pitting Ethan A. Sharpe and Cain Justice taking on Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards. The fight roared across the arena with the team of Redemption gelling together nicely with a pinfall win over Sharpe and Cain, who have already declared their intentions for the upcoming Kernodle Tag Tournament.
CWF's Golden Ticket holder Aric Andrews was out next for a singles tilt against KL3. Andrews showed a bit of his mean streak in a quick pinfall win over the up-and-coming young performer.
Tag team action was once again in the spotlight with the duo of "Southern Savior" John Skyler and All Star "Most Honorable" Mace Li taking on the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and "Party Starter" Keith Mac. The Beast rampaged but the Party Starter was shouldered with much of the bout for his team as their opponents did all they could to keep Biggs on the ring apron. With a few quick legal tags to turn the tide, Biggs and Mac got the duke by pinfall over the Skyler and Li.
Otto Wrestling Machine was out next to take on Chet Sterling in a featured singles bout. The madman bantered gibberish with the fans while trying to systematically disassemble fan favorite Sterling from bell to bell. Sterling responded valiantly to the cheers of the fans and turned the tables on the Wrestling Machine, winning by a convincing pinfall.
Intermission in Chapel Hill featured performances by rappers/vocalists Jay Math & CM10 and the duo of TayNov & Skillz in the ring.
Donnie Dollar$ was introduced and took the mic explaining how he got a title shot in Chapel Hill. He was interrupted by CWF Mid Atlantic Unified Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee, who was ready to fight as soon as he entered the ring. The two exchanged assaults with Lee using a little emphasis on the hand or wrist of Dollar$ and eventually taking him to the canvas to retain his title by submission.
As Lee catches his breath post-match, "Southern Savior" John Skyler runs out and grabs the CWF title belt and knocks Lee face-down on the canvas. Skyler explains that HE is the next challenger to be chosen by Trevor Lee and that he wants to take the title at the Sportatorium.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers' Zane and Dave were out next for Open Challenge action to be confronted by the team of Dirty Daddy and CWF Rising Generation League Champion Kool Jay. Dirty and the RGL Champ went off like dynamite and had the Dawsons on their heels on a few occasions during the duration of the match. However, the Dawsons flipped the switch and retained their titles in the same city they first won them by pinfall over the game team of Daddy and Kool Jay.
The All Star entourage entered, led by Coach Gemini, Jarry Carey and Mace Li for the introduction of "Ace" Arik Royal for the main event Chapel Hill Street fight against hometown hero Snooty Foxx. Street fights, which have no disqualifications, allowed the entourage to be involved for much of the match, making it four-on-one. They brawled through the first three rows on one side of the arena before making their way outside onto the ring trailer parked nearby, across the basketball court and through an outdoor grounds maintenance shed before returning to the building with Snooty Foxx being drug in by a garden hose. Arik Royal found a shovel in his travels and blistered the chest and back of Foxx with it before brass knuckles became involved. Coach Gemini tossed them in to the Ace, who fumbled them, allowing Foxx to grab them and use them to finish off Royal by pinfall in a brutal battle of wills.
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday March 17th for CWF GREEN WITH ENVY at Gibsonville NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com. CWF Worldwide Television Champion Shane "Hurricane" Helms will be on hand!

Stardate: 03.13.18 3:05 pm
See, ya'll? The world didn't end, CWF Mid Atlantic didn't go dark and the Sportatorium hasn't been converted to a faith-healing center or anything along those lines. Business as usual has resumed with a few familiar faces in new places and a few new faces in familiar places.
Attendance has actually been up at live events and the "televised" CWF product has resorted to focusing on the regular CWF Mid Atlantic talent and up-and-comers from the CWF Training Dojo, as it should be. Production of CWF Worldwide is now done outside of the company and we have expanded both our number of cameras and sound mixing capabilies, which we're working the final bugs out of as we speak. We, as a group, still stand behind our product and are taking steps to continue to make it bigger and better as time goes on.
There is an excitement, an electricity flowing through the entire locker room and crew these days as we move into the spring/summer of 2018. There's a renewed feeling of family and folks who in the past may have been silent are standing up to be heard. There's an incredible leap in volunteering going on behind the scenes as well. Yeah, it appears the whole CWF STRONG deal isn't just a motto. It has became reality.
The new wave of trainees and production assistants are coming along and we're not far away from new faces from the Dojo in the CWF and CWF-RGL ring. New fans are coming on board and the Rising Generation League, which we used to call the "best kept secret in the Sportatorium", is now becoming another pro wrestling destination. Rising Generation League events are designed to specifically spotlight wrestlers with three years or less ring experience, to give them a platform to be seen and to interact with live fans. Of course, some of the regular CWF performers drop by as well as wrestlers from other area training dojos, so we help create opportunities for both our young workers and the young guys training in other schools.
I'm feeling good about the future, about the rest of 2018 and beyond. I have put aside my personal thoughts of retirement from the wrestling business and currently feel pretty darn good about our direction and the folks involved in making it happen. So I suppose as long as my health permits, you'll still have me haunting some of your favorite venues. How's that for a blockbuster announcement? Oh. It's not. It's just what's on my mind...
See you at ringside!
