Glenwood Rec Center
Tag team action hit the ring to kick off CWF's CASUALTIES OF WAR with Chase Dakota teaming with the returning "Surly" Cecil Scott to take on the team of CWF Mid Atlantic TV Champion Donnie Dollar$ & RGL Champion Joe Black w/Brad Stutts in tag team action. Scott, returning from a broken ankle, held his own for the first part of the bout, but was slower than expected as his physical conditioning has yet to catch back up to the full-time competition as the match continued. Dollar$ and Black tagged in and out like a regular team, taking Dakota to the canvas and ending the bout with a convincing pinfall in the center of the squared circle.
The bizarre Solomon Spades was out next with the even more bizarre Jester for singles action against CWF Mid Atlantic original "Box Office Draw" Mikael Yamaha. Yamaha started fast, but Spades kept retreating to the floor for consultations with Jester, and Yamaha finally went to the floor to retrieve his opponent. The bout went back and forth from bell to bell with Yamaha finally getting an upper hand and attempting a pin to finish the bout, only to be held by the unusual Jester from the floor, allowing Spades to steal a pinfall win over the multiple former CWF champion.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions All Stars Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins were led to the ring by Coach Gemini to defend the titles "one more time" against A Black Guy & A Little Goat's Arik Royal & Chiva Kid. A barnburner ensued, with the All Stars using their superior numbers to stay a step ahead of the familiar challengers. The numbers game, however, didn't hold a large enough advantage for the champions, as the challengers did work and won the titles by a convincing pinfall in the middle of the ring for a very appreciative crowd.
Mecha Mercenary was out next for a Greensboro Street Fight against Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride, with no time limit, no DQs and no countouts. The battle hit the floor almost at the opening bell with the two competitors going for broke early in the fight. A few shots into the steel ringposts were followed up with a series of big elbows and a couple dozen open-hand chops as the fight re-entered the ring to continue. Mecha went big and tried to finish off the veteran McBride, but the Boogie Woogie Man had a few tricks left up his own sleeve, including a steel chain. McBride took the mechanical monster down, winning by pinfall after over ten minutes of brutality all over the building!
Eight man tag team action was the main event of CWF CASUALTIES OF WAR, with William L. Cross leading his Aftermath team of Trevor Lee, Ben Tyler, "the 1st" Ric Converse & Xsiris to the ring to get busy against Brad Stutts' team of "Young Gun" Nick Richards, TV Champ Donnie Dollar$, Jason Miller & "High Definition" Steve Greene. Weeks leading up to this bout heard many unpleasant comments made by both teams and both teams appeared ready to back up their words with whatever action was necessary when the bell rang. All eight men gave out every possible ounce of punishment to their opponents with both teams flowing tags for much of the fight. The retired grappler, Greene, made a timely save of partner Richards after he got singled out, only to find himself searching for a chance to get to his own corner for a tag. Greene refused to submit as Converse & Xsiris stepped up and took center stage, and actually orchestrated the main event's pinfall win, pulling a victory out of what appeared to be a loss.
CWF Mid Atlantic returns to live action on Saturday February 18th at Burlington NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium (1813 Frank Holt Dr.) at 7:30pm. For details and to reserve your seats NOW, visit www.cwf247.com!
