The Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
Chiva Kid hit the ring prior to the first match, face covered with a towel to address the fans about the conclusion of CWF Madness In Any Direction. He removed the towel and introduced himself as Andrew Everett Cross, son of manager William L. Cross and grandson of ringside stage manager Pops Wenkel. Even pointing out his mother in the crowd, the young Cross vowed to get even with Trevor Lee, explaining that he had planned on doing away with the Chiva Kid mask in the near future.
Mecha Mercenary and his partner "Surly" Cecil Scott were out next for singles action against the up-and-coming Lebron Kozone. The masked monster took an almost immediate advantage on his opponent, but refused to pin him and stopped the referee from counting him out after tossing him out of the squared circle. The game young powerhouse Kozone returned to the ring but was unable to get the masked monster off of his feet, a disappointing outing for the popular young grappler who appears to have a very bright future in the ring.
The Black Watch's Chase Dakota & Joe Black w/Solomon Spades was out next for tag team action against the Set's Lance Lude & Jay Sinn. A pretty even tilt ensued with the journeymen Set displaying their talents at the expense of the Black Watch, but manager/wrestler Solomon Spades made his way into the ring on a couple of occasions, eventually clobbering Sinn with a steel chair behind the referee's back and dragging Black on top of him as the referee was trying to maintain order on the floor at ringside.
Newcomer Charlie Weston entered the arena to face off against a suddenly very alone and very angry Donnie Dollar$. With the demise of Fatback Enterprises, Dollar$ hit the ring without any fanfare, or entrance music for that matter, and was all business from bell to bell. The big man took out his frustrations on young Weston, pinning him in under a minute and a half, then called for a house mic and announced that if Nick Richards was anywhere near the ring tonight that he would even the score of Richard's cowardly attack at CWF Madness In Any Direction.
Zane Dawson was out next to face former Mid Atlantic Champion Lee Valiant for the right to challenge for the CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Title on May 4th. It was ugly, it was mean, it was down-right violent as both men played for keeps from the opening bell. The vocal crowd constantly chanting for Valiant fueled Dawson from anger to almost pure evil as the match went on, with Dawson telling the fans what he thought of Valiant inside of the ring. Dawson won by pinfall, leaving Valiant in a crumpled heap who required security to help him exit the ring after the bell.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions All Stars Goon Squad's Roy Wilkins & Walter Eaton w/Coach Gemini were out next to defend their titles against the #1 Contenders, the Mid Atlantic Outlaws' Louis Moore & Matt Houston. With the fans firmly behind the #1 Contenders, Coach Gemini stepped up his involvement, throwing penalty flags and blowing his whistle almost non-stop the entire bout. The Outlaws took the battle to the champions with Moore and Eaton having one of the most blistering exchanges of chops that this reporter has ever witnessed, but their momentum was broken several times by the cagey Coach. Using Moore's own branding iron as a weapon behind the referee's back, the champions escaped with a controversial pinfall win in what may be just the first chapter of many between the two teams.
Six man tag team action was up next as the Aftermath's CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Trevor Lee, Rising Generation League Champion Ben Tyler & Chet Sterling hit the ring to square off against Robyn Tyrone Golphin, Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea & Andrew Everett Cross. Golphin found himself singled out for punishment and was abused to the point that he couldn't even get close enough to his corner to make a tag for almost eight minutes. The referee interjected himself between Golphin's partners and the Aftermath on several occasions as they tried to rush the ring to make the save while being taunted by Lee numerous times. The "new" Aftermath held up their end of the bout, pulling off a pinfall win that left their opponents feeling ripped off and wanting to continue their confrontation.
CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal was introduced for the scheduled main event title defense, followed into the ring by Brad Stutts and Commissioner Corey Edsel. After announcing the advertised opponent had no-showed and had not contacted the office, the two stated that there would be a title bout, but were interrupted by the All Star's "Assassin" Ray Kandrack and Coach Gemini, who demanded the match. Edsel agreed, adding the stipulation that if Kandrack did not win the title that he was "gone from CWF" for the remainder of Edsel's term as Commissioner. He added that if Coach Gemini got himself involved that he, too, would be "gone from CWF", to which he agreed after getting in the Commissioner's face baseball-manager style. The main event lasted less than two minutes before Royal took the former champion to the canvas and pinned him to retain his title. Zane Dawson then rushed the ring and attacked Royal, followed by Lee Valiant who attacked Dawson. Nick Richards then hit the ring grabbing the house mic only to be interrupted by an irate Donnie Dollar$, followed by the "new" Aftermath hitting the ring followed by Andrew Everett Cross and then, surprisingly, "the 1st" Ric Converse. After cleaning house, Converse, Cross & Royal announced that they would square off against Lee, Tyler & Sterling at CWF Mid Atlantic's 350th event on Saturday May 18th at the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium in Gibsonville NC.
