The CEO of BitDON Donnie Dollar$ was out first to take on Sugar Dunkerton in singles action. Dollar$ did the whole immovable object deal to perfection against Sugar D, but was unable to fight off a loss by pinfall from the impressive veteran.
Nick D entered with one half of the Mid Atlantic Outlaws, Matt Houston, to take on another ring veteran Tre-G in a singles contest. In a spirited battle of the bulls, Houston took the win via pinfall.
Challengers $outh$ide Playas' J-Money and Will B. Smooth with Nick D entered, followed by BCW Tag Team Champions 1st Gen's James Anthony and Victor Andrews, then challengers the BTF Connection's Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride and Tank Lawson and challengers "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Snooty Foxx for one-fall four-way tag title action. The champions went big air, the Playas went to the floor, the BTF Connection went old school and the Rampaging Foxx team went physical in a slobber-knocker of a tag team event. When the smoke cleared, the referee raised the hands of the $outh$ide Playas, awarding them the BCW Tag Team titles with a pinfall win.
Shane Martin with manager Sean Cruise entered to do battle with Chris "TNT" Taylor for the brand new BCW North Carolina Championship. Cruise almost helped his man to the new title, but Taylor used a bit of skill, a little momentum and a stroke of good luck to beat both men for the title.
Redemption's Nick Richards was out next to take on "OMG" James Ryan in a singles match that BOTH competitors had been pointing to on social media for weeks. The ring could not contain the two, who battled around the ring, into the seats and on the floor at ringside, barely breaking the referee's count on several occassions. James Ryan picked up the pinfall win over Nick Richards, and I'm sure these two will meet again sometime in the future.
Otto Wrestling Machine made his way to the ring to do battle with CWF Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee in a non-title singles bout. OWM pulled some college wrestling moves out to add to his arsenal and fans almost witnessed a collegiate-style match until Trevor Lee turned on the jets and took the Machine down for the pin.
The Extreme Horseman's C.W. Anderson was out next to do battle with Brad Attitude in a singles match. Anderson went for a quick pinfall, which Attitude escaped followed by a quick pin attempt of his own that the referee almost laughed at, with Attitude's feet both draped across the middle ropes. The Hardcore Enforcer followed the retreating Brad Attitude to the floor and plunder may have became involved. Or at least a garbage can. C.W. Anderson wins the match by pinfall, as you may say, in the comfort of his own element.
All Star Roy Wilkins made his way to the ring to take on Chet Sterling in a singles bout. Science and flight were presented to the fans on display by both wrestlers until we thought a decision had been made, but the referee reversed his own call and restarted the match, taking away what was thought to be a Wilkins win. Chet Sterling took advantage of the match restarting and set out to finish off the All Star by pinfall in a little over two minutes after the restart. Sterling was successful in his quest.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champion Dawson Brothers' Zane and Dave Dawson entered first, followed by their opponents the Gymnasty Boys, who put on a dazzling tag title belt display of their own. Somehow ALL of the title are put on the line and a nasty fight erupts. Timmy Lou showed off his elegance and "White" Mike Jordan spoke the word of the street, but Dave Dawson stayed on the attack much like his brother Zane, became quite violent as the match wore on. After all of the tag title belts were introduced into the ring, the referee called for the bell and disqualifying both teams for use of the belts in the match.
BCW Heavyweight Champion "Ace" Arik Royal made his way to the ring to defend the title against replacement challenger Chip Day. With his original opponent away in Australia, Day was tabbed weeks ago as the man with the #1 Contendership. I personally have witnessed a majority of Royal's career matches and I've never witnessed a match of Chip Day's that I didn't walk away impressed. The power of Arik Royal is not what one would believe and he took it to Day for the entire bout. The impressive part was the amount of pain and brutality Day withstood to stand up and take the title away from the cocky champion by pinfall.
Benefit Championship Wrestling STARS AND STRIKES raised $850.00 for disabled veterans of Alamance County! BCW returns to action on Sunday November 11th for the Second Annual Relay For Life Benefit!

"People still totally freak when I tell them that I stopped watching wrestling on television in 2001, the night Vince McMahon's face showed up on WCW's big screen to be exact. Everyone swears I need to know what's going on in WWE in order to put on a wrestling event. It hasn't stopped me yet, if I need inspiration I simply dig out my collection of wrestling tapes from the 80's and 90's, and yes, that includes WWF, WCW, WCCW, UWF, and the rest of the alphabet soup that makes up today's wrestling. - Randy "Randolph" Hedrick
Birthday Surprises, An Impressive Debut and A Cowboy Riding His Favorite Horse Highlight CWF-RGL THE WORLD IS YOURS!

Coach Gemini led his entourage of All Stars to the ring for a singles bout pitting "Ace" Arik Royal against the veteran Dirty Daddy. Royal played the waiting game, making Dirty wait to lock up and actually wrestle in an attempt to goad him into doing something rash, but he never bit. He did go tornado when he did finally get his hands on the Ace but with Mace Li and the Coach at ringside, Royal was able to keep away from Dirty as much as he wanted to, eventually wearing down the Dirty Daddy and beating him by pinfall as the time limit expired.
Tag team action was intoduced as Donnie Dollar$ entered with his first investor, Sean Cruise, to take on Chris "TNT" Taylor and Bellamy Koga. A hard-hitting battle ensued with Cruise being worked over by both Taylor and Koga, requiring Dollar$ to step in and protect his investment. The Dollar$-Cruise team wins by pinfall as BitDON goes live.
Masked Hombre Dos entered next to take on Snooty Foxx in singles action. Playing hard to get, the Hombre exited the ring and argued with the fans, the referee and Snooty Foxx before finally returning and beginning the match. Foxx found himself on the defensive for a stretch in the match before firing up and finishing off the pesky luchadour with a kick to the mouth and a Nikita Koloff-like "Russian Hammer" for the pinfall.
The All Stars made their way to the ring once again, with Arik Royal and Coach Gemini seconding "Most Cool" Mace Li as he takes on PWI International Heavyweight Champion "the 1st" Ric Converse in non-title singles action. Converse went for his favorite finisher early only to find Coach Gemini grasping him by the ankle from the floor. With his concentration broken, Li escaped and returned to try to teach one of the most decorated wrestlers in history a "lesson" on the mat. Mace Li did catch Converse in a Figure Four leglock, but the champ reversed it and ruined the young All Star's night with a pinfall win.
Birthday boy Ethan Alexander Sharpe was out next, asking for the house mic to most likely hawk his t-shirts (he didn't!). After being refused a shot at the RGL title, RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay moseyed out to the ring and took him on in singles action. Sharpe tried to put down the champion, but he kept getting back to his feet to take a little more before turning it around and finishing off Sharpe with a convincing pinfall win. Sharpe was not a happy man and began screaming at the referee...
...When CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee entered with a mic. Lee informed Sharpe that since it was his birthday, he'd give him the greatest gift he could offer, a shot at the title. Sharpe pulled himself up and accepted and an un-scheduled Mid Atlantic Title match began. Fans shouted as Lee twisted the arms, wrist and even fingers of Sharpe, who howled in pain. Even dressed in casual shorts and tennis shoes, Trevor was able to force a submission from Sharpe, who's birthday was apparently ruined.
Newcomer Dylan Bostic entered to take on Chet Sterling in main event singles action. Bostic sold himself as a real talent moments into the match, taking what was given and giving out his own against the red-hot Sterling. Chet and Dylan for most part were a dead heat from bell-to-bell, with Chet turning the advantage his way with a couple of moves that caught the impressive newcomer in mid-air and then crashing into the canvas. In a match-of-the-year candidate, Chet Sterling pulled off a pinfall win after Dylan Bostic got hung across the top ropes in perfect position for a Sterling leg drop from the top ropes.
CWF Mid-Atlantic's Rising Generation League returns to action on Saturday June 2md for CWF-RGL LITTLE BIG MAN at Gibsonville NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com. See You At The Sportatorium!

Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
Fans converged upon the Mid Atlantic Sportatorium for CWF OUR HOUSE for a hot night of pro wrestling fun and action and none left disapponted after the event that unfurled.
The All Stars' parade, Coach Gemini, Jarry Carey and Mace Li entered with "Ace" Arik Royal for singles action against the popular Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. The Cowboy rode in and waited nearly three minutes before Royal ever touched him. Royal was in no hurry to do anything but have fun at the expense of the RGL Champion, but eventually found out that even the smallest wasp can indeed sting. With the time limit counting down, Royal finished off Kool Jay by pinfall.
Tag team action was introduced with Donnie Dollar$ and Otto Wrestling Machine entering to take on the team of Mack-D, High Profile's Willie D and "Party Starter" Keith Mack. The new corporate Dollar$ and the Wrestling Machine walked away with their hands raised after shutting down the party with a pinfall win.
The Cross Brothers, Aden and Christian Cross, entered for tag team action against Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards with William L. Cross (no relation to the Cross Brothers, according to reports). The Cross Brothers took it up a notch early, wanting to go toe-to-toe in the center of the ring and gave back everything they took. Redemption took the bout by pinfall after getting their opponents firmly on the canvas.
Mike Mars and the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs resumed their battle of the colossus series, taking on each other in singles action once again. The two beat each other brutally for fifteen minutes, with no decision being rendered after the time limit expired.
Former champion Chet Sterling got his chance to win the championship back from current PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion "Skywalker" Cam Carter. An athletic display began with the bell and continued as both competitors got to know each other and then began countering the other's moves. Almost a perfectly even bout wowed the fans until Sterling climbed the turnbuckles to try to finish off the champion. Brad Attitude entered with a house mic from the lobby, challenging and taunting Sterling, who took his attention off of the match he was in. Carter regained control and successfully defended the Ultra-J Crown Championship in his first attempt since winning it.
Tag team action hit the ring with Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe and Cain Justice entering to take on So Time's Snooty Foxx and Dirty Daddy in a continuation of their bitter feud. With quick tags and hard-hitting moves, So Time got separated with the Daddy taking the brunt of the attack. When he made the tag to bring his partner Foxx in, his instinct was to attack the opponent and make another quick tag. That mindset may have been the factor that allowed Corruption to win the match by pinfall if not from their tenacity.
"Golden Boy" Aric Andrews, a former TV Champion and current CWF Golden Ticket holder, entered for his shot against CWF Worldwide Television Champion Shane "Hurricane" Helms. Helms roared into the arena and went to work against the taller Andrews, catching him early in a Figure Four leglock and possibly setting him up for the Figure Six. Andrews was finished off a few seconds past the seven minute mark by pinfall and Andrews sulked in the corner as the All Stars rushed in and attacked the "Hurricane" four-on-one. Officials finally convinced them to exit the arena and that's when Andrews stood up.
The "Golden Boy" then invoked the Golden Ticket Stipulation, forcing the referee to begin a second match against Helms for the CWF Worldwide Television Championship. Barely able to stand, Helms was dropped to the canvas and pinned in thirty-two seconds to begin the second title reign of Aric Andrews.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers' Zane and Dave entered from the lobby wanting to know exactly who was going to challenge them in their Open Challenge. Los Chicanos' Original Chulos Jeff and Jonathon Castro stepped up, only to be interrupted by William L. Cross and his team Redemption. Cross took the mic and stated that McAllister and Richards were the ones that should get the title shot, only to be interrupted by the familiar music of Trevor Lee.
The CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion entered with partner Chet Sterling and questioned when they were going to get THEIR title shot earned by winning the 2018 Kernodle Brothers Tag Tournament. Cross compromised and asked the fans if a Four-Way One Fall bout between all four teams for the titles would work and received an overwhelming positive response from the fans.
The official called for the bell while the Dawsons were still trying to file an official complaint, and were forced to watch other teams have the opportunity to win their belts while they are standing on the apron. As bodies flipped from the ropes to the concrete floor, Los Chicanos' Jeff Castro landed face-first on the floor and lay motionless for minutes before being helped from the arena. Jon joined him in the locker room for a few moments as the match continued without them and returned about time Brad Attitude caught Chet Sterling in the back with a steel chair. Sterling got up, and along with partner Trevor Lee, chased him out of the building. So with two and a half teams remaining, the match continued.
The Dawsons had Redemption on the ropes and Castro bellowed to be tagged in, which Zane allowed and demanded him to be a "team player". Castro turned and clobbered Zane Dawson as he had Nick Richards nearly finished off for tossing his brother to the concrete earlier in the match. The match cycled through a couple more tags before the Dawsons resumed control and retained their titles by pinfall.
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday June 9th for CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2018 at Gibsonville NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com. See You At The Sportatorium!

Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
1001 Springwood Ave.
CWF Worldwide hostess C.L. Party kicked off the night's festivities by introducing CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee and his Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament Championship partner Chet Sterling and asking them both questions about their trust for the other. The All Stars interrupt and inform the fans that they will indeed announce the newest All Star before the night is over, making overtures to BOTH men to join their team.
Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered with his second Cain Justice for singles action against So Time's Dirty Daddy. Dirty Daddy fired up a few minutes into the bout and had Sharpe on his heels until Justice got the referee's attention allowing his partner to have his way with the popular veteran to give him the ultimate advantage and allowing him to win by pinfall.
"Pitbull" Steven Idol returned to the Sportatorium for tag team action with newcomer Cruze Bittle to take on Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister. A hard-hitting battle ensued with the Idol-Bittle team showing they meant business looking for a spot on the roster. Redemption continued on a roll with a pinfall win after setting up a return at a later date that both teams may savor.
Otto Wrestling Machine entered the arena next to battle another young newcomer, Crash Calhoun, in singles action. Calhoun didn't back down from the imposing OWM and tied up with him at the bell. The Wrestling Machine, however, wasn't impressed and began to dismantle the game youngster, winning the bout by a convincing pinfall.
Confident CWF veteran Donnie Dollar$ entered the ring for non-title singles action against the hugely popular Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. Jay went big air early but to no avail, as Dollar$ brushed off some of his biggest moves and snatched him out of mid-air on a couple of occassions. Donnie Dollar$ showed that he too could rag-doll the resilient young champion, but the Cowboy seems to have more lives than the proverbial cat. After falling head-first to the concrete from the top rope, Kool Jay popped up like a jack-in-the-box and climbed the ropes again to continue to attack. Kool Jay's persistance pays off and he pins Dollar$ for the victory. Before he could hobble off into the sunset, CWF Official William L. Cross enters and asks the RGL Champion to join him on the platform. "Cowboy" Kool Jay is presented a brand new Rising Generation League Championship belt commemorating the first 25 RGL Champions in the company's history.
Corruption's Cain Justice enters next seconded by Ethan "Buy My Shirt" Sharpe to take on So Time's Snooty Foxx in singles action. Dirty Daddy rushes into the arena and demands to be allowed to watch the back of his partner and the match begins. In almost ten minutes of give and take action Sharpe enters the ring with a steel chair after the referee is knocked to the canvas, suddenly faced by Dirty Daddy. With the referee reviving, Sharpe tosses the chair to Dirty Daddy, climbs to the apron and points to the steel chair in the hands of Dirty Daddy. The official reacted but didn't remove him from the arena, but with a single diversion, Justice was able to finish off Foxx by forcing him to tap.
Tag team action hits the Sportatorium stage next with the All Stars' Mace Li and "Ace" Arik Royal with Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey entering to take on 2018 Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament Champions Chet Sterling and CWF Champion Trevor Lee. The whole match was spiked with pitches to both Sterling and Lee to join the All Stars, by Gemini and his entire team, as well as warnings that one couldn't trust the other. Despite the numbers advantage and the head games, the 2018 Weaver Cup Champ Sterling and Trevor Lee were able to get an advantage and allow Lee the opportunity to force the Most Honorable one submit to continue their team's consecutive wins to accumulate in the record book.
The highly anticipated main event was introduced with popular challenger Cam Carter entering first to await the arrival of PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion "Skywalker" Andrew Everett, the home-town hero. An incredible match of athleticism and air superiority erupted all across the ring and in the front two rows in front of the ring. After nearly fifteen minutes of battle both men started attacking from the top turnbuckles. The referee did appear from my vantage point to hesitate and break what could have been an Everett pinfall, but it resulted in the champion going to the top ropes yet again. Cam Carter was waiting and countered the champion to the canvas for the pinfall win which signals the arrival of a new young star. Everett was the first to congratulate the new champion, raising his hand before exiting the arena.
CWF Mid-Atlantic returns to action on Saturday May 12th for CWF OUR HOUSE at Gibsonville NC's Mid Atlantic Sportatorium and tickets are available NOW at cwftickets.com. See You At The Sportatorium!

Stardate: 05.22.18 8:05 pm
Got a few moments, weeks actually, to relax and ponder the upcoming summer of hot wrestling action that's about to be upon us. CWF Mid Atlantic's Summer Blockbuster ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2018 arrives on Saturday June 9th at the Sportatorium. The Rising Generation League, the hottest little show in the Carolinas, returns on June 2nd at the Sportatorium as well.
Hats off to Jimmy Harris for putting on another afternoon of matches for Alamance County (NC) disabled veterans. The summer episode, BCW STARS AND STRIKES, pulled in another $850.00 for the veterans and BCW will return on Sunday Nov. 11th for the 2nd Annual Relay For Life Benefit at the Positive Attitude Youth Center in Burlington NC.
BCW gives me the opportunity to also touch base with some old friends who I don't see as often as I'd like, most notable, the real-life pro wrestling icon J-Money and my other little brother Will B. Smooth, the $outh$ide Playas. We have a long history and they are both dear friends, as is J's wife and full-grown kids. Tre-G has been involved with the BCW experience for about a year now, he's one of the guys from way back, a regular in the Roxboro area regardless of the banner we ran under, and it's great working on events with him again.
Another quality young man I enjoy watching in the ring and speaking to when time permits is my favorite Chikara performer Sugar Dunkerton. He gets it, people. I think he was on the road with the Gymnasty Boys, "White" Mike Jordan and Timmy Lou Retton, another couple of guys I enjoy watching in the ring a lot. Also, I didn't get the chance to speak with Chip Day, but yeah, another match, another impressed viewer. Pretty darn consistent in that, which is a benchmark in today's wrestling world. Quality performer. Pretty cool guy.
There is a very good possibility that most of you will want to wear sunglasses to summer events that I'm covering. For your own protection from my extremely white legs, as I'm sure that at some point I WILL don the shorts. You have been warned!
See you at ringside!
