A Special Report!
Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
The Aftermath's CWF Rising Generation League Champion Ben Tyler was out first to take on Robyn Tyrone Golphin in semifinal action in the 2012 RGL Tournament. A fast-paced battle ensued with the challenger hitting a few impressive moves, but unable to put away the resilient current RGL Champ Tyler, who advanced to the 2012 RGL Final to face Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea at BattleCade XIII on iPPV via pinfall.
Terrell Givens was out next to take on Jason Miller in singles action. Miller stood toe-to-toe with Givens during the opening conflict, but quickly took control of the bout and manhandled the high-flyer in the middle of the ring for a convincing pinfall win.
Tag team action hit the ring next as William L. Cross led the Aftermath's Chet Sterling & "the 1st" Ric Converse to the ring against Brad Stutts team of Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea & "Young Gun" Nick Richards. The two rookies went at it hard and fast with the former six-time Mid Atlantic champion and former Mid Atlantic Tag Champion making their impact on the bout as they were tagged in. Nearing the fifteen minute match time limit, the Aftermath was able to swipe the win via pinfall after appearing to be taking the brunt of the punishment the duration of the match.
Marcellus "Mid Atlantic" King hit the arena in street clothes and demanded CWF Commissioner "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel to face him and tell him what his punishment was for his assault on a CWF official while already under suspension for the same offense. Edsel explained that if he was a "by the book" Commissioner that he'd be suspending King for another 90 days as the crowd started shouting for King v. Converse at BattleCade XIII. Converse returned to the stage as the conversation continued, and Edsel eventually put the decision on the fans, who ultimately chose King v. Converse at BattleCade XIII on iPPV.
Non-title tag team action was up next as the All Stars' Michael "the Fury" McAllister & Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega were led to the ring by Coach Gemini to face the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Kong" Evan Banks w/"Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil. In a give and take battle of wills, the Killbillies' Banks found himself with an injury to his shoulder, which prompted the All Stars to cut him off from his corner and continue to try to injure the shoulder even more seriously. Around the twelve minute mark, the All Stars left the ring area, resulting in a count-out win for the champions. The All Star Goon Squad's Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins ran into the ring and led a continued attack on Bank's shoulder before the locker room emptied, led by Fatback Enterprises, Arik Royal & Chiva Kid, which finally put an end to the cowardly six on three attack. Banks was helped to his feet and appears to have suffered a possible separated shoulder four weeks before the Killbillies' scheduled title defense against the Goon Squad at CWF BattleCade XIII on iPPV.
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Trevor Lee, along with his new haircut, William L. Cross & Chet Sterling hit the ring for a title defense against a former CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Adam Page. Fan favorite Page found himself looking into the eyes of a cold angry Lee, who displayed a new seriousness to his craft, complete with his army of distractions at ringside. Page hit Lee with much of his arsenal, but Lee remained in the match and wrestling much more determined than in the past. With the customary ten-minute television time limit ticking away, Lee refused to settle for a time limit draw and relentlessly continued his attack on Page until he was able to win via pinfall with only three seconds left.
Matt Smith hit the ring during intermission announcements asking for a house mic. He then proceeded to call out Solomon Spades' Black Watch, who never appeared. Rather than Chase Dakota & Joe Black, "Surly" Cecil Scott led the masked Mecha Mercenary to the ring to answer the challenge. With the Commissioner's thumbs up of approval, war erupted. Smith went off like a Roman candle, continuously connecting with body drops until the masked monster couldn't get off of the canvas. The Roman candle finally began to lose some of it's firepower and Mecha Mercenary found his third or fourth wind to pin the game fan favorite. As Scott led Mecha out of the arena victorious, the Black Watch's Chase Dakota & Joe Black hit the ring and attacked the already exhausted Matt Smith, with Fatback's Dollar$ & de Nero making the save.
Commissioner Edsel ordered both teams to remain in the ring as Smith limped from the arena, called for a referee for tag team action. All four men exchanged pleasantries, fists, kicks and a general dislike for each other before the Fatback Enterprises team was able to end it with a pinfall win. Matt Smith made his way back to the ring, entered and stood before Dollar$ & de Nero, who had come to his aid earlier. And since both Fatback and Smith have had their problems with the Black Watch, Smith suggested a six-man match between the competitors at CWF BattleCade XIII. Commissioner Edsel agreed that it was fitting, and booked the match as a Texas Tornado Rules bout at the December 29th internet Pay Per View.
Six man tag team action was the main event of CWF's Road To BattleCade XIII with Coach Gemini leading the All Star team of CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack & the Goon Squad's Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins to do battle with fan favorites Kamakazi Kid, Chiva Kid & Arik Royal. The very familiar foes left it all in the ring as they exchanged fond Christmas wishes in the form of bruises, abrasions and ill will. After more than a quarter hour of war, "Surly" Cecil Scott and Mecha Mercenary made their way into the arena, attacking Chiva and Kazi, eventually fighting all the way out of the arena, leaving Royal alone in the clutches of the All Stars. When the pinfall was finally made, the All Stars refused to back away, continuing their attack on Royal. The Killbillies hit the ring to make the save, with "Honky Kong" Evan Banks' arm in a sling from the earlier in-match attack, rescuing Royal from further harm.
