A Special Report!
Mayco D. Bigelow Rec. Center
Media superstar Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea kicked off the Alamance County Library's Reading Challenge Celebration by facing "Lost Cause" Nick Richards in singles action. Richards tried every shortcut in the book but came out on the wrong end of the decision with Lea winning by pinfall.
Singles action was up next as young lions Jarel Dupree and Jesse "the Ripper" Adler faced off in the squared circle. Both recent CWF Dojo graduates showed off what they've learned with Dupree taking a pinfall victory over the Ripper.
The Aftermath's Chet Sterling was out next to face one half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews in a singles tilt. Sterling stole a pinfall win by rolling up Andrews and holding the middle rope out of the referee's view while he made the three count.
Two of the Final Four of the 2014 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament found themselves across the ring from each other as Arik Royal faced "Army of One" Marcellus King in singles action. In a hard-hitting battle of the big men the sheer will of Royal propelled him to a pinfall win over King.
The top three readers in this summer's Alamance County Library Summer Reading Challenge were introduced to the fans, with Brendon Christopher Lee Brown, his sister Brielle Brown and Olivia Diane Mason taking the top honors!
Ethan Sharpe, the smoking jacket-wearing financial genius interrupted Brad Stutts as the reading challenge winners were leaving the ring making the demand that ALL of the children be removed from the arena. Stutts laughingly refused and Sharpe threw down the challenge that when TV Champ Manny Garcia & Darius Lockhart defeat Donnie Dollar$ & Aaron Biggs later in the evening that no children would be allowed in to the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium for three months. Stutts considered it and responded with a counter-offer, that if Dollar$ & Biggs defeated Garcia & Lockhart that all children in attendance today would be allowed into the Sportatorium for FREE for the next three months, which Sharpe begrudgingly accepted.
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion "El Jefe" Manny Garcia & Darius Lockhart were introduced for tag team action against the team of Donnie Dollar$ & Aaron Biggs with the fate of the children on the line. Garcia and his alleged cousin took early control of the bout with the TV Champ creating distractions which allowed Lockhart to take advantage of the situation. The strategy didn't work like they'd hoped, leaving them angry and confused as the hands of Dollar$ & Biggs were raised in a victory after an Aaron Biggs pinfall.
The All Stars' Coach Gemini, Walter Eaton & Chappy hit the ring and called out MJ Wilkerson for the final tally in the reading challenge. The Coach challenged Wilkerson on television weeks ago that if the children couldn't read 10,000 minutes that he would personally body slam Wilkerson. If the children stepped up and won the challenge, Wilkerson would get a chance to body slam Coach Gemini. The final tally was read after Coach Gemini "fudged" the challenge up to 100,000 minutes and went berserk after the final tally was well over 150,000 minutes! Gemini scooped up the teacher for a slam to be interrupted by Arik Royal, who made sure that MJ got her prize of slamming Coach Gemini in the middle of the ring.
Arik Royal was attacked by Chappy and the referee called for the bell for singles action. Chappy hit the floor running as Royal turned toward the Coach only to be attacked by Walter Eaton in the ring. Royal survived the three-on-one assault to pin Eaton in the center of the ring to a roar from the appreciative fans.
