Tag team action kicked off CWF-RGL RISIN' TO THE TOP as newcomers the Cross Brothers' Aden and Christian Cross hit the ring to take on "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Dirty Daddy. The Cross team displayed speed and weren't afraid to fly and took it to the new team of Biggs and Daddy. Dirty Daddy got seperated from his corner for a stretch and the Cross Brothers took flight. Aaron Biggs finally made the tag and went on the rampage, leading his team to a pinfall win.
Ladies action was introduced next with "Film Maker" Movie Myk entering with entourage along with Desy Des to take on Daysie Day in a singles tilt. The two ladies battled it out until Movie Myk climbed onto the ring apron, got the referee's attention and demanded loudly that they cut and re-shoot the previous segment of the match, where Daysie Day took control. The referee refused, but it gave Des the chance to get a second wind and finish off the game Day by pinfall.
THE Ryan Price led Los Chicanos' Jeff and Jonathon Castro to the ring for a tag team battle against the team of Bellamy Koga and Dak King. A back and forth battle ensued with the tide turning upon the entrance of "Film Maker" Movie Myk, who ordered Dak King to the floor and then the locker room, leaving Koga in a two-on-one situation. Los Chicanos finished off the single opponent with quickness with a pinfall win added to their record.
Otto Wrestling Machine (OWM) entered next for singles action against a much larger opponent than he's used to, Franco Varga. Otto discussed world politics, his thoughts on global climate change and the United Nations before turning his attention to Varga. The two battled in an even contest until the Wrestling Machine kicked it up another notch and took the impressive Franco Varga down by pinfall.
"Pitbull" Steven Idol returned to the Sportatorium to take on the 2017 IndyInsiders Most Popular Award Winner Snooty Foxx with a shot at the CWF Rising Generation League Championship on the line. The two battled tooth and nail in a competitive even match that was interrupted by a sneak attack on Snooty Foxx from the floor by "Ace" Arik Royal. Royal gift-wrapped the RGL Title shot for the Pitbull, who swooped in for the pinfall win over Foxx.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered with the house mic and introduced his tag partner (after hawking his t-shirts for two and a half minutes straight) Cain Justice (who also hawked his t-shirts). Wes Rogers and Dejuan O'Neil answered the bell for tag action and got right in the faces of the cocky Sharpe/Justice duo. Rogers displayed his continued improvement and growth with his agility and speed and O'Neil shocked his opponents with his strength and his verticality, but the diabolical duo walked away with a pinfall win and the whole "I told you so" (read: Buy my shirts!) attitude.
"Film Maker" Movie Myk and entourage entered for his main event shot at the CWF Rising Generation League Championship currently in possession of the popular Kool Jay. Myk pushed his height and weight advantage around mixed with some unconventional attacks, taking it to Kool Jay from the opening bell. Kool Jay withstood a barrage of attacks before getting a second wind and an opportunity, enabling him to retain the title over the more experienced Film Maker by pinfall to a roar from the crowd.

"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

Cain Justice kicked off CWF Strong by squaring off against Ian Maxwell in singles action. Justice targeted the arm and wrist of Maxwell early and tormented him continually from bell to bell with Ian Maxwell eventually submitting giving Cain Justice another victory.
Three way one-fall singles action was introduced next with Mike Mars, KL3 and Dirty Daddy all in the ring at once. Mars interrupted the wrestling match between KL3 and Dirty, left the ring for a moment and returned to wipe both men out for a pinfall win in under five minutes against two opponents.
Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey entered with the All Star's "Most Honorable" Mace Li to challenge Kool Jay for the CWF Rising Generation League Championship. Jay entered to a roar and the fans remained in his corner cheering him on against Li and his team on the floor at ringside. The popular RGL Champion used his speed and some evasive actions to out-perform the young All Star, pinning him to retain the title.
CWF Worldwide hostess C.L. Party entered to introduce the next bout but never got to begin after being interrupted by "Golden Boy" Aric Andrews, the Holder Of The Golden Ticket. After announcing he would "observe" the next bout to scout both competitors, he took a seat at ringside.
The popular Snooty Foxx hit the ring to take on PWI International Heavyweight Champion "the 1st" Ric Converse in non-title action and the two got serious as soon as the bell rang. Foxx caught Converse in a few of his power moves but Converse resorted to veteran wiles to secure the non-title pinfall victory. Following thei bell, Converse and Snooty Foxx shook hands and exited the arena.
William L. Cross took a house mic and entered the ring to update the fans on the fines and penalties being levied on the All Stars for absconding with the new CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Title Belt at BattleCade X8. The All Stars entered and apparently hadn't realized that the $100 fine was not a one-time penalty, but actually a $100 a DAY penalty, which was already over the $4,000 mark. The refused to surrender the belt and that caused CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee to hit the arena as the All Stars tried to leave through the lobby. Lee threw down the challenge for "belt v. belt" against Roy Wilkins at CWF END OF AN ERA 2018, in a NO ROPES rules match for it all!
"Southern Savior" John Skyler hit the ring next to take on Chet Sterling in singles action. Both men dug in and went to war, on the ground and in the air. In a surprisingly even bout, Skyer delivered punishment only to find Sterling getting back to his feet to start all over again. Sterling delivered some big damage on Skyler late and found himself being tossed off of the turnbuckles from behind by Brad Attitude, who made his escape without garnering the attention of the referee. Skyler took advantage and the three count as the crowd shouted their disapproval.
C.L. Party hit the ring and introduced Faye Jackson, who was there to announce the expansion of women's wreslting in CWF Mid Atlantic. However, before she could explain herself, the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers bull-rushed the ring and sent Party scurrying off to the floor. Jackson left the ring, but not the arena and seconds later "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs hit the entrance. Since the champions were throwing out an open challenge, Biggs asked "Why not take on Beauty & the Beast?" An official entered and the match began.
Aaron Biggs and Faye Jackson started strong on the bully champions and made it known early on that they were a serious threat for the tag team titles. With the crowd firmly behind them Beauty & the Beast soon found Miss Jackson seperated from her corner and the tide turning toward the champions. The Dawsons kicked in the afterburners and retained their titles by pinfall in a hard-fought bout.
Brad Attitude made his way to the ring to challenge the new CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Hurricane" Shane Helms in the CWF STRONG main event. After Helms' entrance, the building and the crowd was simply electric. The bell rang and the two went to work on taking the other to the canvas. Helms unleashed what he referred to in-ring as the "Figure Six Leglock" on Attitude, who could only solve it by forcing the referee to make him break. Attitude refused to be star-struck by the champion and resorted to his usual tactics for the duration, which still led to a successful defense with the Hurricane winning by pinfall to retain the title.
The ring filled with celebrants as CWF Champ Trevor Lee offered Shane Helms a CWF STRONG t-shirt, which he immediately donned. With smiles all around, Helms explained that CWF STRONG wasn't a marketing ploy, but the actual feeling within the locker room and throughout the CWF Family today. And simply stated, I agree.

The first CWF Mid Atlantic event of the calendar year began with introductions of the new CWF Worldwide lead commentator Cecil Scott, the evening's returning guest commentator Smith Garrett and the host of CWF Worldwide, C.L. Party. Moments later, Coach Gemini and the All Stars interrupted, with the new CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Title belt around the waist of Roy Wikins. After announcing that Wilkins would later "defend" his title, but only against another champion, the All Stars retreated and the event began in earnest with ring introductions for the opening bout.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe sauntered into the arena to face Chet Sterling in singles action. Sterling got grounded early by a persistant Sharpe, but proved to be even more resilient and defeated Sharpe by pinfall.
Donnie Dollar$ entered and awaited scheduled opponent Dirty Daddy and went ballistic upon the bell, tearing into Dirty and quickly setting him up for a big leg drop, and deciding it wasn't worth it. "Assassin" Ray Kandrack made his way to the ring figuring he'd fight whoever was left, which he did, until the referee called for the bell and stopped the match.
"Wrestling Machine" Otto Schwanz and All Star Mace Li entered for tag team action against Nick Richards and Michael "the Fury" McAllister with William L. Cross. Li hit and ran and Otto became even more incoherant but McAllister and Richards kept getting up and fighting, turning the tides and winning the match by pinfall.
An angry Mike Mars, of recent Rising Generation League Championship fame, entered with an attitude to take on the Rampaging Beast Aaron Biggs in singles action. In a literal battle to be bull of the woods, Biggs stood tall and defeated Mars by pinfall.
Cain Justice entered next for a singles bout against rival Jesse Adler. Justice came in with a wrestling mindset and Adler obliged, showing off his arsenal of abilities up close. After the ten minute mark, however, Cain Justice seemed to change up to the "make him tap" mode and began working exclusively on one arm and hand of Adler's. Adler showed a lot of heart continuing to fight back with an apparently injured shoulder, but was forced to submit giving Justice another win.
"Golden Boy" Aric Andrews entered next to take on popular high-flyer Cam Carter in singles action. Carter had the crowd fully behind him early on and he turned on the jets for the fans and Andrews kept getting up to fight some more. With the match in Andrew's favor late, Cam Carter turned the tides and got a huge pinfall win over the veteran Golden Boy.
One half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers, Dave Dawson, hit the arena from the lobby to take on Snooty Foxx in one-on-one action. In another battle of big men with history, Foxx stayed in the face of Dawson from bell to bell but found himself on the wrong end of a Dave Dawson pinfall victory.
The All Stars' Roy Wilkins and entourage entered and as promised announced the champion Wilkins would face. Brand new Rising Generation League Champion Kool J hit the ring and the fans erupted with cheers for their most recently-crowned champion. Wilkins, with both Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey in his corner, did eventually wear down Kool J and win by pinfall over the guy with the biggest heart in CWF. However, it took Wilkins and Company over twenty-two minutes to finally defeat young Kool J.
Coach Gemini presented his CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Ace" Arik Royal for the main event drawing for a title challenger. Somehow, El Dandy's name was drawn and he was not actually in attendance. Gillberg's name was drawn but we didn't have his entrance music. After another miss or two, the name of Shane "Hurricane" Helms was drawn and the superstar enters for the main event to the surprise of everyone in the building.
Arik Royal probably put his hands on Shane Helms more in a less than ten minute match than anyone in his career ever has. Royal showed off his moxy and strength and kept the world traveller baffled for most of the traditional ten minute television time limit. However, the Hurricane seemed to be on the verge of dropping in the final minute and turned a Royal attack into a surprising pinfall win, making Helms the new CWF Worldwide Television Champion.
C.L. Party announced the title change and asked Shane Helms if he would defend the title on mic and Helms informed everyone he would most certainly defend the title and would be a fighting champion!
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday February 10th for CWF STRONG and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com.

The Most Unlikely Upset In Years And Kool J Is Your New CWF Rising Generation League Champion At CWF RISING GENERATION LEAGUE "ICE BOWL"!
A Special Photo Extra!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
The CWF RISING GENERATION LEAGUE "ICE BOWL" kicked off with singles action pitting Ivy Leaguer Griff Garrison against Marcus Cross. In a fast-paced battle, the fans got behind Cross and helped him use their boost in momentum to stay ahead of Garrison and get a pinfall win.
Tag team action was out next with the Millennials' Garrett Coleman and Chance Rizer taking on Michael "the Fury" McAllister and Nick Richards. A hard-hitting fight erupted and both teams showed their skills in trying to take out the other. CWF vets Richards and McAllister defeated the Millennials by pinfall.
Donnie Dollar$ was up next to take on Dirty Daddy in singles action. Fresh off of his RGL title loss at Battlecade X8, Dirty finds himself face-to-face with another one of the area's "big" men. Dirty Daddy started strong but seemed not to do much damage to Dollar$, who turned things around for a pinfall win.
"Pitbull" Steven Idol returned to the Sportatorium ring to find the masked Metallico across the ring from him for scheduled singles action. The masked man started fast but was soon under the thumb of the ground and pound method practiced by Idol. The Pitbull enjoyed punishing his opponent for a while before ending the bout with a pinfall win.
Cain Justice entered to do battle with fan favorite Cam Carter in singles action. Carter waited out Justice's early clowning with the fans and went to it with the cocky youngster. Cain Justice turned the battle around with his feet, twisting the shoulder of Cam Carter violently on the canvas. Carter spent the rest of the bout with a nearly unusable arm and Justce was able to use that to force him to submit to keep from having more damage done.
Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered the ring before Carter could exit and went off on the house mic. Carter, still smarting from his match, decided to shut Sharpe up with a back kick to the head. Sharpe had nothing more to say.
All Star Mace Li was out to take on Snooty Foxx in singles action. The "Most Honorable One" Li played the hit and run card, doing damage and moving away before Foxx could retaliate in kind for the balance of the bout. When Snooty Foxx did finally get his hands on Mace Li, he sent him flying upside down into the turnbuckles with a release suplex, gaining control for a pinfall win.
Snooty Foxx was still in the ring when main event ring introductions began and found himself face to face with CWF Rising Generation League Champion Mike Mars as he made his entrance. Foxx backed away and Kool J was introduced as the first challenger for the new champion's title reign. Mars manhandled and rag-dolled Kool J at will, but Kool J kept coming back, he kept kicking out and refused to quit for the monsterous RGL champ.
As soon as Mike Mars realized Snooty Foxx was back at ringside, he turned his back on his crumpled opponent, who leapt into action! Kool J used an old fasioned school boy roll up to put the champion's broad shoulders to the canvas for the three count and secured his very first career title win. Kool J rolled out of the ring to the floor and stared as the referee brought him the RGL Championship belt. Still out of breath and hurting, Kool J exited the arena for his very first time as a champion.
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday January 13th for CWF New Year's Knockout 2018 and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com.

Stardate: 01.11.18 9:47 pm
A whirlwind of allegations, stories, rumors and lies has been swirling around the CWF locker room and in fact, the entire CWF family for the past week or so. I have not spoken publicly on it except to say that I did not witness any of the possibly criminal activites that were alleged to have occured, but I do trust the credibility of the sources. I support the actions taken by the ownership of CWF Mid Atlantic and will continue to help my "home" promotion for the past 18 move forward and over this period of disruption and anger.
I am taught to forgive those who trespass against us, and I truly hope that in time I can say I have done that with a clear conscious. This was a personal attack on everything from our sanity to our sensibilities, so right now I am not to ready to forgive. I just pray that sooner rather than later I can make peace with this rough and unexpected series of events and grant forgiveness. I am only human, after all.
To date, the only explanation of the series of events that I believe to be correct was authored by Bruce Mitchell and published on Pro Wrestling Torch (www.pwtorch.com). Below is a direct link to the article:
Read Bruce Mitchell's Report on Pro Wrestling Torch
We at CWF Mid Atlantic intend on putting this chapter behind us and moving forward with an exciting 2018 in the works! I'm confident that we'll continue to make you want to join us for every live event in the coming year as in the past and that CWF Mid Atlantic's program will continue to air weekly. I feel a united front has been formed and that everyone has redoubled their efforts to make CWF both the top draw and the top destination. We're not going anywhere but up, ya'll.
See you at ringside!
