A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
CWF ONE FIGHT ONLY kicked off with singles action pitting Marcellus "Mid Atlantic" King against Logan LeReau and his Security Guard. The newcomer got a few shots in on the Mid Atlantic King before finding himself staring at the ring lights after King's Murder-Go-Round finisher for the three-count in under two and a half minutes.
Tag team action was up next with Marcellus King going from the ring to the commentator position as the Aftermath's Xsiris & "the 1st" Ric Converse w/William L. Cross hit the arena to take on the high-flying Set's Lance Lude & Jay Sinn. A fast-paced bout erupted with all four men displaying their talents, with the Aftermath team paying way too much attention to the commentator's table, but able to keep focused enough to pull of a surprising win after being backed against the wall by the red-hot Set. After a few steel chairs were tossed into the ring by King, officials finally cleared the ring area.
Chris "ShoSmoove" Lea from 102 Jamz was up next with an interview with "the Diamond" K.C. McKnight. After discussing his impending move to Tampa, CWF Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack and Coach Gemini interrupted the interview. Scheduled to battle for a spot in the Final Four of the 2012 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament, hostilities boiled to a head and Commissioner Edsel appeared at ringside, called for an official and told the two to fight their Weaver Cup match right then. Despite protests from the Coach, who claimed he wasn't dressed for a match, the referee rang the bell and the battle of the immovable object and the irresistible force was underway. Both men beat each other like the proverbial red-headed step-child with Kandrack finally felling the Diamond by pinfall after inflicting injury and leaving McKnight gasping for air. McKnight was joined in the ring by Commissioner Edsel and Brad Stutts as he said his "goodbyes" to the Gibsonville fans since he was obviously not going to be participating in the 2012 Weaver Cup Finals on August 25th.
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Donnie Dollar$ w/Brad Stutts hit the ring to defend against a "returning CWF star" and watched as "the One Man Boy Band" Roo-D Lewis made his way into the arena. He never made it into the ring, however, after being attacked on the floor by "Surly" Cecil Scott and the masked Mecha Mercenary. Lewis was helped from the arena by security as the Commissioner stepped up and ordered Scott to challenge for the TV Title, since he'd already lodged a complaint about not getting the title shot. Dollar$ was able for the most part to stay out of the grasp of the masked man on the floor and put Scott away via pinfall in under five minutes by pinfall.
Tag team action was up next as Coach Gemini led out the All Stars team of Roy Wilkins & Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega to do battle against Jason Miller and a "partner of his choice". Arik Royal answered the challenge and a fight erupted, spilling onto the floor at ringside. The four familiar foes, and Coach Gemini, waged a war all over the Sportatorium with individual battles going on in and out of the ring. After the battle saw Royal and Wilkins fighting on the floor near the announce position for several moments, Jason Miller struck, pinning Ortega for a clean win.
Intermission was not even over as Joe Black walked out demanding a house mic. Given the mic, he demanded Solomon Spades to show himself and "be a man" and step into the ring with him. Spades and his latest protege Chase Dakota responded on the big screen with Spades dispatching Dakota to the ring to handle the dirty work. The fire in the eyes of Joe Black gave away the seriousness of the night to the former RGL Champion, who was relentless in trying to inflict pain on Dakota. In the process, the black clouds rolled in and Dakota found himself in a situation that required him to tap out to live to battle another day. Black had not even a moment to catch his breath as Solomon Spades hit the ring and dropped him to the canvas and revived Dakota. The two then drug Black out of the ring through the entrance back into the locker room area.
Labron Kozone was out for his CWF Mid Atlantic debut only to discover he'd drawn the monsterous Mecha Mercenary, who made his way to the ring with "Surly" Cecil Scott and the mask of the Kamakazi Kid. Kozone tried his hardest but Mecha seemed ready to toy with his prey from the opening bell. After draping the mask of Kazi over Kozone's head, he dropped him to the canvas for the pinfall win, exiting the arena with a roar.
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium Landlord Rayaan Jaheem was out next to introduce the bout for the final spot in the 2012 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament, but was only able to totally confuse the fans and obviously himself in the process. As Matt Smith and "Young Gun" Nick Richards w/Brad Stutts began their Weaver Cup Quarterfinal bout, the introductions were repeated and the two friends tried to destroy each other. Intentional and unintentional pain was inflicted as both men went to the top turnbuckles and both men went to the floor. High-risk moves began in earnest as Richards and Smith turned up the heat after the ten-minute mark of the match was announced. The final five minutes ticking down to mere seconds, Richards was finally able to catch Smith waiting to pounce on him from the ring apron as he returned to his feet. Richards caught him in a neckbreaker and finished him off as the clock ticked down to the final seconds. Richards was unable to celebrate as CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack hit the ring and drove him face-first into the canvas.
The Fun Athletic Guys Trevor Lee & Ben Tyler w/William L. Cross & Chet were out for their main event title bout against the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions the Killbillies' "Honky Kong" Evan Banks & "South Paw" Aric Andrews w/"Barefoot" Bobby Jo Neil. When the bell finally rang after almost five minutes of brawling on the floor, the Aftermath team seemed to have a numbers advantage on the Killbillies, whose fan club was entrenched on the front row at ringside. The champions survived an in-ring attack from Xsiris, which may have backfired and had him limping to the locker room in pain. With a steel chair, Bobby Jo Neil removed Cross and his gentleman's gentleman Chet, and the battle in the ring became less of a sideshow and more of a fight as the four got busy for real. Andrews survived a long stretch unable to tag his partner and the champions were able to secure the win with a pinfall, leaving the Fun Athletic Guys sprawled in the ring at the conclusion. Cross & Xsiris returned to clear the ring as fans were thanked for coming to the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and the final credits were rolled.
