A Special Photo Extra!
The Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
With a shot at the CWF Mid Atlantic Television Title on the line, six competitors hit the ring for a special Six-Pack Challenge. Solomon Spades & Matthew de Nero began the bout, with Cecil Scott, Mark James, Mecha Mercenary and then Aaron Biggs joining at one-minute intervals. All six men battled before Mark James found himself the first man eliminated. "Surly" Cecil Scott exited next followed by rookie Aaron Biggs and Solomon Spades. With the masked Mecha Mercenary accepting a helping hand from eliminated partner Scott, de Nero refused to go out of the bout, finally sending the big man crashing to the floor over the top rope to win a shot at Trevor Lee's TV Title on Saturday June 1st.
Chasity Taylor was out next to welcome Jason Miller back after several months following a nagging injury. Miller had nothing to say except that the world would soon see "the real Jason Miller" before ducking out of the interview segment and exiting.
The Black Watch's Chase Dakota was out next with the bizarre Jester Jokes leading the way for singles action against rookie Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea. After an initial feeling out period, the two went to battle as Jokes patrolled the floor at ringside. Despite an extra set of eyes Dakota found himself on the wrong end of Lea's recent momentum, standing in stunned silence with Jokes after Lea pinned him for the win.
The first-ever Killbillies Klassic was up next on CWF #350, with three tag teams from the Commonwealth of Virginia locking horns in three-way one-fall action. Shawn Christian & Charlie Weston were out first followed by the unlikely team of former Mid Atlantic Champions Kamakazi Kid & Lee Valiant and the Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Kong" Evan Banks w/Bobby Joe Neil. After nearly 13 minutes of fast-paced action the Killbillies pulled off the pinfall win. Following the match, Killbillies' manager Bobby Joe Neil offered thanks to Shawn Christian for helping everyone in the match, as well as Matthew de Nero & Hugh B. "Bad News" Johnson, by training them at Boogie's Wrestling Camp. Each competitor took turns thanking Christian for his help in each one of them being able to follow their dream of competing inside of the squared circle.
The first-ever CWF Homecoming Battle Royal was up next with Brad Stutts introducing the entrants prior to the bell. The very first ever CWF Heavyweight Champion David Taylor was the first man eliminated, followed by Mike Maverick, Josh Bishop and the "One Man Boy Band" Roo-D Lewis. The American Steel Ninja was then tossed out with Jimmy Valentine, the mysterious Numbers Man and veteran Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride to follow. Rookie Manny Garcia, who inserted himself into the event, was eliminated next, followed by "NiteStic" Eddie Brown and both of the Storm Brothers. Hugh B. "Bad News" Johnson and "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel found themselves alone after the rest of the field had been eliminated over the top ropes and attacked each other like roaring animals. The news wasn't good for Johnson, who found himself on the floor looking up as Edsel celebrated with the roar of the fans.
Chasity Taylor was out following intermission to interview former CWF Tag Champion and Commissioner "A Very Handsome Man" Mitch Connor. Connor expounded on his memories and regrets but was then interrupted by "Lost Cause" Nick Richards, who swooped in and grabbed the house mic. Demanding that Connor leave "his" ring, Richards got a moment of happiness when the former Commissioner exited the ring, but that soon changed as Donnie Dollar$ bull-rushed the ring and attacked Richards. The two went tooth-and-nail with neither man gaining a large advantage, but then the bout flowed into the floor at ringside. Richards started eye-balling steel chairs and had one pulled out of his hands by Jason Miller, who rushed to ringside to help Dollar$. Dollar$, the commentary team and the entire building went silent after Miller turned and attacked Dollar$ himself with the steel chair, exiting with Richards in tow after winning the match by count out.
Eight-man tag team action was up next with the Coach Gemini's All Stars sending out the team of Goon Squad's CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins, Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega & Michael "the Fury" McAllister with "Prince of Heat" Court Montgomery escorting the team to ringside. Three men were introduced, Matt Houston, "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel & Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride, who made their way a man short. Explaining that Mid Atlantic Outlaw Louis Moore was unable to be there, they'd said they had found a "suitable replacement", and PWI International Heavyweight Champion Shane "Hurricane" Helms music blasted. The house roared by the surprise addition of the popular Hurricane to the card and then one of the best eight-man tag matches in this reporter's recent memory mesmerized the fans. The ebb and flow of the match was incredible as each star showed off what they were best at doing, with the fans on the edge of their seats from bell to bell. The team of Helms, Houston, Edsel & McBride took the duke and posed for photos as the crowd roared it's approval. Security then had to get involved in making sure "Assassin" Ray Kandrack, who has been forced to leave CWF by virtue of a match stipulation, didn't enter the ring after sounding off from the floor at ringside.
Six-man tag team action was the main event at CWF #350, pitting the Aftermath's CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Trevor Lee, CWF Rising Generation League Champion Ben Tyler & Chet Sterling against "the 1st" Ric Converse, PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Andrew Everett Cross & CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal. Almost twenty minutes of brawling, distracting, elbows and fists ensued with both teams controlling the action at various intervals during the bout. Sterling pulled out the pinfall win for Team Aftermath, being in the right place at the right time and knowing how to take advantage of the situation before him.
