The NEW Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
In less than half the time it took to introduce just one of the two competitors, Matthew de Nero turned up the power and put away All Star Michael "the Fury" McAllister by pinfall in under a minute!
Mecha Mercenary & "Surly" Cecil Scott hit the ring next to face off against the team of Mark James & Donnie Dollar$, who were joined during their introduction by Matthew de Nero. The four collided in a hard-hitting battle that was about 2 degrees north of a brawl, with the fan favorites winning by pinfall met by a roar from the fans in attendance.
Six man tag action was up next as William L. Cross presented the Aftermath's Xsiris, TV Champion Trevor Lee & RGL Champ Ben Tyler to square off against Overdrive's Robyn Golphin & Terrell Givens and Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea. The Aftermath controlled much of the bout, but in the latter moments, Overdrive hit more than a handful of high-impact double-teams to turn the tide of the bout into their favor. In a flurry of activity both inside the ring and on the floor at ringside, someone got their bell rang, rolled back into the ring and pinned by the aggressive Aftermath team.
William L. Cross entered again with "the 1st" Ric Converse for a singles rematch against Matt Smith, who is showing great strides in implementing his chosen craft of late. Converse immediately tried to get into the head of his opponent, being cheered on by Cross from the floor. Smith kept his head in the match and on a swivel, taxing the former six-time Mid Atlantic champ and wearing him down and attacking him in a flurry of unexpected activity that allowed him to get a clean pinfall on a suddenly irate Converse.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions All Stars Goon Squad Roy Wilkins & Walter Eaton w/Coach Gemini hit the ring to defend their newly-won titles against the Set's Lance Lude & Jay Sinn. The journeymen team pushed all in minutes into the match, not stepping back from any attack the champions mustered, eventually sending the champions into reverse, backing away from the challengers like they were sick with the flu. Numbers came into the equation with Coach Gemini on the floor offering a fifth and sixth hand to his team as the need arises during the bout, and helping his Goon Squad set up a deciding pinfall to end the bout.
The angry "Assassin" Ray Kandrack was out next with Coach Gemini to get into the face of Charlie Dreamer, making his return to the Mid Atlantic ring. Kandrack, as he often does, dished out every means of punishing Dreamer he could conjure up, but the resilient Dreamer hung in there and waited to strike when the time was right. Not very often does that time actually present itself in a bout with Kandrack of late, but Dreamer spotted his chance, executed and slide out of the ring with a pinfall win over the Assassin added to the record book.
The Aftermath's Chet Sterling hit the ring next to challenge the brand new CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal. Whatever plan the Aftermath had set into motion turned into an all-out attack on the champion prior to the bell by Sterling, Lee & Tyler. Royal survived the three-on-one and the official then called for the bell to begin the match. Sterling had a built-in advantage early in the bout, thanks to the damage inflicted by the Aftermath's rogue champions. Royal got a second wind and finished off Sterling via pinfall in under three minutes.
With a shot at the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Titles on the line, Solomon Spades' Black Watch team of Chase Dakota & Joe Black were introduced to do battle against Kamakazi Kid & Chiva Kid. Spades quickly turned the advantage to his corner, getting in the line of sight of the ring official and forcing him to pay him a lot of attention during the course of the main event bout. After the ten minute mark, the Goon Squad hit the ring to attack the masked duo and then were chased out by the Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews, "Honky Kong" Evan Banks & "Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil, who laid out Eaton and dared his teammates to come and get him. With a pinfall win over the Black Watch, the Kids get a title shot against the Goon Squad on January 26th in Gibsonville NC!
