The NEW Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
Familiar foes from the All Stars and Fatback Enterprises locked horns in singles action to kick off CWF Final Date With Destiny as All Star Michael "the Fury" McAllister hit the ring to do battle against "Young Gun" Nick Richards w/Brad Stutts. The two went right to war upon the opening bell and Stutts watched as his man got a small measure of redemption from the CWF RUMBLE where he ALMOST walked away as the winner via pinfall over McAllister.
The 2012 Rising Generation League Tournament kicked off with newcomer El Cervezo w/Jose Cuervo hit the ring to take on red-hot rookie "Sho Smoove" Chris Lea in Round 1 action. The masked Latino and his ring second were a bit preoccupied with the bottle of tequila they brought to the ring to take the bout seriously and the rookie late night radio DJ-turned-wrestler advanced in his first tournament bout in his rookie campaign. The Aftermath's Chet Sterling & "the 1st" Ric Converse made their way to the announce position, calling out Lea to face Sterling in the coming weeks to decide who the real "hot rookie" was.
Current RGL Champion Ben Tyler was out next for another 2012 Rising Generation League Tournament Round 1 bout, squaring off with the impressively built newcomer Smith Garrett. The bout started as a pose-down and escalated to a brawl as Tyler discovered that Garrett was turning up the heat on his title reign as soon as the bout turned serious. Tyler kept his wits about him and waited for an opportunity to strike as he tried his best to stay out of the grasp of the larger challenger, finally getting the three-count to advance to Round 2.
Six man tag action was up next as Solomon Spades, Chase Dakota & Joe Black stepped through the ropes to face off against Mark James, Jason Miller & Donnie Dollar$. Spades' young charges showed off their abilities as he chose his moments to enter the ring despite the regular tag team of James & Miller adding one of Spades' arch enemies Dollar$ to the mix and the battle seemed pretty evenly matched. All Star Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega, who was doing ringside commentary, took exception to an opening, leaving the broadcast position and attacking Jason Miller on the floor at ringside. They brawled out of the arena, leaving James & Dollar$ a man short and unable to stop Spades' Black Watch from winning via pinfall.
"Surly" Cecil Scott was out next for a grudge match against the masked Kamakazi Kid with the stipulation that Mecha Mercenary was barred from the building. Scott hit the ring with Kazi's old mask and gear on, making the real Kazi see red at the opening bell. Taking a few months worth of frustration out on Scott, the real Kamakazi Kid was able to finish him off by pinfall in under four minutes after draping his old mask over Scott's chest and dropping from the top ropes onto it.
Coach Gemini was out next, leading CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack for a special "Coach's Choice" bout. Gemini then announced who he had hand-selected to challenge his angry Assassin, introducing Matt Smith. After laughing about a "night off" the champion and his manager soon found that they'd stuck their heads into a beehive when Smith opened up his impressive arsenal and then kicked it up another notch. Kandrack found himself on his heels and Coach Gemini nearly stroked out on the ring apron on at least three occasions before the big champion finished the bout by pinfall. Unsatisfied with his showing, Kandrack continued to pound on Smith after the bell, resulting in Chiva Kid hitting the ring to make the save and involving the Commissioner of CWF, "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel. Edsel announced on the spot that Chiva Kid and Kandrack would both captain a team at November 17th's CWF ULTIMATE SURVIVOR iPPV!
Three way non-title tag team action was up next as the Aftermath team of Chet Sterling & "the 1st" Ric Converse were led to the ring by William L. Cross, followed by former CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions A Black Guy & A Little Goat's Arik Royal & Chiva Kid. The current undefeated CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Killbillies' "Honky Kong" Evan Banks & "South Paw" Aric Andrews and "Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil rounded out the match and when the bell rings, Banks suddenly decides he needs an explanation of what had just happened when he locked up with Chiva Kid. The masked Mexican star actually walked through his escape in half speed, resulting in Bobby Joe Neil calling moves for Banks, who followed instructions to the letter, surprising fans with his knowledge of the moves. Converse sent Sterling into the fray a couple of times, demanding to see some improvement in his ring game, at one point attacking his own partner! Still seething in the locker area, "Assassin" Ray Kandrack hit the ring area and attacked Chiva Kid, allowing the Killbillies to get the pinfall win over young Sterling.
Commissioner Edsel hit the ring with mic in hand to tell the Killbillies that there were no clear #1 contenders for their titles and considering the champions are undefeated as a team, it would be up to contenders to step up and put something on the line for a shot at the belts at the ULTIMATE SURVIVOR iPPV. "Young Gun" Nick Richards, trailed by a seemingly confused Brad Stutts, hit the ring and asked for a shot at the titles with Matthew de Nero as his partner. When asked what he'd put up to get into the bout, Richards announced he'd put up his "spot in CWF Mid Atlantic" and Stutts looked toward the heavens in disbelief.
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion the Aftermath's Trevor Lee was out next with partner Ben Tyler in tow to face the challenge of Marcellus "Mid Atlantic" King in the traditional ten-minute television time match. King hit the ring during Lee's introduction and attacked him before the referee could even ring the bell, and a personal battle broke out in earnest. Lee surprisingly held up under the onslaught of King, and actually caught him with a kick to the face that brought about a nasty cut above his eye which bled profusely for the remainder of the bout. King finally got Lee's shoulders on the canvas for a possible three count, but the ten-minute television time limit expired before the referee could count to three! King couldn't believe his ears as he heard the announcement that Lee retains his title by rule in a time limit draw, and turned and locked eyes with referee Redd Jones, who he had already had "history" with in the previous weeks. King attacked Jones, who had to be carried out of the arena by officials.
All Stars Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins were out next to face off against Destiny's "High Definition" Steve Greene & Ty Dillinger in main event tag team action. Advertised as a main event that CWF will never put on YouTube, the match started off strong and then got heavy. All four men exchanged painful greetings and a real emotional bout ensued. Greene and former tag partner Eaton had a few vicious exchanges while Wilkins and Dillinger battled like former roommates that couldn't stand each other. At roughly twenty minutes, All Star Michael "the Fury" McAllister hit the ring and attacked the Destiny team, forcing the official to stop the bout and rule it a rare disqualification. The Destiny team, along with the fans, urged the referee to re-start the bout and with the Commissioner's approval, re-started the fight! Former CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Lee Valiant appeared in the ring to aid his Destiny partners steal a win. However, Eaton dropped Dillinger on the floor at ringside like a bad habit, allowing the All Stars to steal the main event by pinfall as the fans roared their disapproval. Dillinger, Greene & Valiant thanked the fans and Dillinger explained it was indeed the last ride for Destiny and that he had no interest in stepping through the ropes again as the team from several years ago.
