A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
Tag team action kicked off the Katie Zeban Benefit as Alex Adonis & Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega teamed to take on Donnie Dollar$ & Mark James. Adonis and Ortega almost immediately became vocal with each other, each ridiculing the other as the bout progressed. Dollar$ and Adonis had a moment of reckoning, as Dollar$ first came to CWF at the request of Adonis in 2004. The fan favorites took the duke by pinfall as the Adonis-Ortega team dissolved into an almost very ugly ending involving a steel chair.
Three-way singles action was then introduced, with the Black Watch's Chase Dakota stepping through the ropes to battle Kyle Mac and former tag partner Matt Smith. Dakota was dumped to the floor early by both Smith and Mac. leaving them to battle one another as the Black Watch's entry watched from the floor at ringside. In a fast-paced battle, Dakota re-entered the bout, ducked both opponents attacks and helped himself to a pinfall win.
Eight man tag team action hit the ring next as Mecha Mercenary, "Surly" Cecil Scott, "Prince of Heat" Court Montgomery & Corey Duncam entered to face Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea, Ernie Osiris, "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "One Man Boy Band" Roo-D Lewis. The bout devolved into a brawl on the floor at ringside with Mecha Mercenary actually challenging CWF Commissioner Corey Edsel who was doing commentary. The fan-favorites pulled off a pinfall win as the disgusted masked machine exited the arena furious at his own team.
The Fun Athletic Guys, CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Trevor Lee & CWF Rising Generation League Champion Ben Tyler with the Aftermath's William L. Cross were up next to face off against the veteran New Age Outlaws Matt Houston & Louis Moore. An entertaining battle ensued with some classic-style fisticuffs and a few choice referee distractions as well as a few William L. Cross attempts to alter the bout. The cocky young Aftermath team stole a pinfall win after the Outlaws showed them how tag team wrestling should be done.
"The 1st" Ric Converse hit the ring next for a long-awaited rematch with Lee Valiant, making his return to the ring after taking a personal leave from competition. The two renewed hostilities immediately and continued where they left off in their classic sixty-five minute iron man match, dealing as much damage as possible on each other as often as an opportunity presented itself. With the battle virtually a stand-off nearly halfway through the thirty minute time limit, Trevor Lee & Ben Tyler made their way to the ring area, attacking Valiant as Converse and Cross kept the referee's back to the sneak attack. Converse stole a pinfall win and the Aftermath continued to attack Valiant three-on-one until Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride hit the ring to make the save.
The All Star Goon Squad's Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins were up next to defend the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Titles against the masked team of Kamakazi Kid & Chiva Kid. The four familiar foes went to war, pulling out all stops in an attempt to defend or win the area's top tag titles. The Goon Squad went for pain as the masked duo went big with the fans in attendance winning the entire bout. After fifteen minutes of brutality and bruises, the Goon Squad pulled off the pinfall win to continue their third reign as Mid Atlantic Tag Champions.
Cedric Alexander was then introduced for the main event feature, challenging CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal for his title. After defeating Marcelles "Mid Atlantic" King for the shot, Alexander hit the ring ready for anything that could be thrown at him, with the exception of the determination of a champion. The two grappled, exchanged moves and counters and blistered each other with chops and eventually made their way to hitting several moves designed to finish off any opponent. Royal came out on top, keeping the Mid Atlantic title firmly in his grasp by pinfall over the fast-rising Alexander.
