A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
Fatback Enterprises' "Young Gun" Nick Richards hit the ring for singles action against high-flying Trevor Lee to kick off 4 hours of pro wrestling excitement at Burlington NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium prior to the debut of DragonGate USA. The two went toe-to-toe at the bell and looked to be taking the bout seriously before the packed house. After roughing each other up for several minutes, Richards took advantage of his situation and garnered a pinfall win.
The entire PWI International Trios Championship team entered next as Chase Dakota led "Creepy" Cecil Scott & Mecha Mercenary to the ring for non-title singles action against CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Lee Valiant. Valiant had to deal with the distractions outside of the ring the entire bout but after Dakota finally got his undivided attention, Valiant rolled him around the ring coming up with the Trios Champ forced to tap out to avoid injury at the hands of the Mid Atlantic Champ.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions VA Bombers Jason Blade & Adam Page were out next to defend their titles against the masked team of the Kamakazi Kid & Chiva Kid. All four competitors being known for their love of the area above the ring canvas went to war at the bell and made the Mid Atlantic area proud by giving it all for the tag belts. Seconds after the ten minute time call, the Bombers went top shelf after flooring Kamakazi Kid, exiting the arena with their hands held high after a pinfall win.
Billed as a Finals Bout for the vacant PWI International Heavyweight Championship, six-time Mid Atlantic champion "the 1st" Ric Converse stood across the ring from former World Tag champion & World Cruiserweight champion "Supernatural" Shane Helms as a change in the match was announced. Because of another Finals Bout scheduled to have taken place in Great Britain had to be postponed, it was announced that the rules had been changed to make this the FINAL match for the PWI International Heavyweight Championship. The indy icon went to battle with the national star and greatness ensued. With the charisma of a true star, Helms welcomed the title belt from Reby Sky after pinning Converse for the three count.
