Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Trevor Lee with Chet Sterling and RGL Champion Ben Tyler at his side, hit the ring to defend his title against Fatback Enterprises' Matthew de Nero to kick off the night's action. The cocky young TV Champion used his partners to divert the attention of the referee, allowing him to get an impressive pinfall win over the veteran de Nero in under five minutes.
ArenaChicks Championship Tournament Semifinal action was up next as Australia's "Rate Tank" Kellie Skater w/Coach Gemini entered to face off against Sassy Stephie w/Coach Gemini. Yes, Coach Gemini was with BOTH competitors, changing his jersey 2 dozen times in the course of the match for which ever lady appeared to be winning the bout. Skater rolled up Stephie with a grab of her trunks, which the referee spotted. Stephie rolled Skater over with a hand full of her trunks, out of the referee's sight, giving Sassy Stephie the right to compete in the ArenaChicks Tournament Finals. An angry Skater shoved down interviewer Chasity Taylor following the bout, storming out swearing she didn't NEED the ArenaChicks title.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Killbillies' "Honky Kong" Evan Banks & "South Paw" Aric Andrews w/"Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil were up next to defend their titles against the deadly Dawson Brothers, Zane & Dave. It took several moments for the battle to begin in earnest after Banks had a severe case of beard follicle envy at the facial hair of the Dawson Brothers, and then it got personal fast. The hard-hitting battle ended with the Killbillies winning by pinfall, extending their undefeated streak and retaining their titles.
"Man Scout" Jake Manning w/$5 Wrestling Champion Freight Train was up next for singles action against double Weaver Cup Champion Arik Royal. Freight Train cheered the Man Scout on from the floor as Manning and Royal put on an offensive showcase. Coach Gemini hit the ring area with a fist full of cash, demanding that Manning take the money and do the job he was being hired for. Freight Train KO'd the pesky Coach, forcing officials to drag him from the arena as Manning first considered taking the money, then with a change of heart, decided to play by the rules as he vows to do daily. Royal, however, didn't let the veteran escape, catching him and pinning him for the win building his momentum toward his Battlecade Heavyweight Title bout.
CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack was up next, with the injured Coach Gemini no where to be seen. Challenger Chiva Kid hit the ring to a roar from the capacity crowd at the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and the noise never stopped from bell to bell. Kandrack attempted to toy with the masked Mexican star, but Chiva Kid displayed that he's learned a lot from his past clashes with the angry champion and took the fight to a place Kandrack is most unaccustomed to fighting. In his own face. Kandrack survived despite a finish which was overturned by the referee and the Commissioner standing at the broadcast area, and the bout was restarted. The champion put an exclamation point on his statement by bouncing the masked man off of the concrete floor, the ring apron and his own knee before pinning him convincingly in the end.
Thirty competitors made their way to the ring every 90 seconds after Chase Dakota and Jason Miller kicked off the 12th Annual CWF RUMBLE. Competitors filed in, some were eliminated moments after stepping through the ropes, some went toe-to-toe with unlikely competitors. "High Definition" Steve Greene rounded out the thirty competitors and the remaining fighters turned it up yet another notch. Rookie Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea eliminated six-time champion "the 1st" Ric Converse as he'd stated he was capable of doing prior to the event seconds before being eliminated himself. With All Stars Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins the last men standing with Fatback's "Young Gun" Nick Richards, it looked like an easy win for the All Stars "Goon Squad." Richards, however, begged to differ, eliminating Eaton and finding himself standing against his partner Wilkins. With both men over the top ropes and battling on the ring apron, Wilkins survived the RUMBLE to win it outright after Richards was thrown to the floor. Fans stood in silence as Richards was assisted from the arena following the almost hour-long main event.
