A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
The Burlington Fire Department Honor Guard and Capt. Steve Lovette from the High Point Fire Department presented the colors and did a bell ceremony to honor the active firefighters that were in attendance prior to the National Anthem. Tag team action kicked off the CWF Mid Atlantic Special Benefit for Area Firefighters "Fire & Desire" as the Mid Atlantic Outlaws' Matt Houston & Louis Moore entered to face Mecha Mercenary and this week's tag team partner candidate Chase Dakota of the Black Watch. The new team of Dakota & Mecha seemed to work well, taking advantage of the recent #1 Contenders to the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Titles with well-timed tags and the occasional shortcut. Mecha set up the end of the Outlaws, leveling Moore, but was unable to make the pin because his new partner tagged himself in and got the three count. The Outlaws left the ring disgusted with the outcome as Mecha and Dakota had words while exiting the arena.
Singles action wound up the fans as "free agent" Michael "the Fury" McAllister stepped through the ropes to take on Lance Lude. A fight erupted and McAllister took the lead in the match early, nailing Lude with his patented knee-high clothesline from a sitting position, but it only served to snap the smaller man into the bout. Lude went for broke and drew four aces to McAllister's pair of deuces, taking an impressive victory over the veteran by submission on the canvas.
Four-Way one fall Scramble Rules tag action was introduced next as the teams of Jason Miller & "Lost Cause" Nick Richards; Smith & Weston; Mark James & Donnie Dollar$; and Aaron Biggs & CWF RGL Champion Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea. When the bell rang, all bets were off, with rookie Aaron Biggs making the biggest splash early in the match. Biggs bounced each and every man that entered to face him from the ring, either by force or by discretion. Miller & Richards watched from the floor for much of the bout as the James-Dollar$ team started to look like the team in control at the mid-way mark. Six of the eight competitors stood in the ring dazed after the referee called for the bell when the longest shots Smith Garrett & Charlie Weston won the bout by pinfall.
Singles action was on tap next as newcomer "Mr. Elite" Drew Meyers stepped through the entry to face Dynasty's Xsiris. A physical bout ensued with both men making the point not to show any respect for the other from bell to bell as the two confident competitors butted heads. In what was seen as an even bout for the first five minutes turned into a convincing pinfall win for Xsiris as he put the shoulders of Meyers to the canvas for the three count.
A special live Killbillies' Korral hit the ring as "Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil and his team of "Honky Kong" Evan Banks & "South Paw" Aric Andrews entered the ring to introduce High Point Fire Captain Steve Lovette, who explained the use for dollars donated to the area firefighters. The Killbillies watched from chairs in the ring with open mouths as Bobby Joe announced that they would NOT get the night off as they thought, but instead would wrestle a hand-picked team he'd brought in from Virginia. The Shenandoah Valley Maulers, "Thunder" Johnson & "Doomsday" Jones answered the challenge and hit the ring ready to rumble. In the hardest hitting forty-nine seconds of action in recent memory, the Killbillies put the shoulders of their masked opponents to the canvas. As they began to celebrate, however, Smith Garrett & Charlie Weston hit the ring and attacked the Killbillies. As the Maulers limped away from the ring area, Aaron Biggs music sounded and he single-handedly cleaned house and sent the invaders running with their tails tucked between their legs.
Tag action was introduced as the Aftermath's Chet Sterling & Trevor Lee awaited the team of CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Matthew de Nero & CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal. The four men have history and pretty much neither team likes the other whatsoever and that was in itself obvious inside of the squared circle. The champions took control of the bout, thwarting every move the Aftermath threw at them, appearing to have a solid upper hand. With the match within their grasp the slippery Aftermath guys played keep-away from the champions resulting with Royal spearing de Nero, who was quickly rolled up and pinned for an Aftermath victory. The TV champ regained his feet furious. The Heavyweight champ was not impressed. The two friends got into each other's faces and Royal proclaimed that he'd walk through de Nero at the CWF RUMBLE on iPPV in two weeks when they square off in title versus title action.
Captain Steve Lovette introduced active firefighters from "High Point to Hillsborough" who were on hand to participate as Lumberjacks at ringside for a special Firemen Lumberjack Rules bout between Manny Garcia and Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride. As the bell is sounded chops start flying. Chops to the chest. Chops to the back. Chops to the back of the head. And then it got a little ugly. Garcia attempted numerous times to bail to the floor only to find out the the area's firefighters were more than happy to do their job keeping both men inside of the ring. Garcia complained loudly that McBride got much "softer" treatment from the lumberjacks, but probably doesn't remember much after that when McBride ended the match putting Garcia to sleep with the Weaver Lock Sleeper.
Tag Title action was then introduced for the main event, with challengers the All Stars Goon Squad's Roy Wilkins & Walter Eaton with Coach Gemini making their way out carrying the Mid Atlantic Title straps that they'd stolen two weeks ago from the champions. Gemini complained that they were the TRUE champions and they'd prove it by facing the "so-called" champions in the ring. Kamakazi Kid & Lee Valiant hit the ring loaded for bear and fire in their eyes. The bell rang and a brawl erupted. The four men paired off and fought, no wrestling involved. Punches were flying inside and outside of the ring as more fighting took place on the floor than inside of the squared circle. After almost nine minutes of brawling Kazi & Valiant finished the former champions off, successfully defending their titles for the first time and finally getting possession of their tag title straps. The All Stars attacked after the decision with "Assassin" Ray Kandrack joining the fray and the lights in the facility went out. A split second before they returned the Dynasty's intro blasted on the big screen and the lights revealed the Dynasty's original team of "the 1st" Ric Converse, Brad Attitude, Xsiris & "High Definition" Steve Greene standing in the ring! The four announced that they were all entered into the CWF RUMBLE in two weeks, which is available for FREE on internet Pay Per View, and exited to an appreciative crowd after pulling down the coach's shorts to the roar of the crowd.
