All Stars Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal Advance To Weaver Cup Finals Night AND Successfully Defend CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Titles at CWF STORM WARNING!
A Special Photo Extra!
CWF STORM WARNING kicked off with the introdution of the commentary team of CL Party and Chris Riddle, followed by the unexpected visitation from PWI President William L. Cross. Cross made a public announcement that Coach Gemini had been avoiding him and that his Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins were required by rule to defend during the month of August. So notice was given that the All Stars would have to defend either on this night or the only other scheduled event, the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th.
Six-man lucha rules action kicked off the evening's contests pitting Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe, Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga against CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay, Michael McAllister and Adrian "Action" Jackson. All six men went to war with the mission to obliterate his opponents and the match broke down into a brawl on the concrete floor before being ruled a double count-out, with neither team getting the win.
"Big Hurt" DeAndre Jackson was out next to challenge Snooty Foxx for his PWI Central Carolinas Championship in a battle of big men. The two butted heads with Jackson gaining a noticable advantage over the popular champion in a slobber-knocker of a fight. Foxx regained his traction late and retained his title over the surging challenger via pinfall.
Tasty Waves' Buddy Flowers entered the arena at the commentary table, literally dragging Chris Riddle into the ring to ask where his tag partner Number Braaah was at. Corporate Number Dad made his way to the ring to have a few words with Flowers, basically deriding him as a bad influence on his son and telling him that they could no longer play games or hang out together before exiting the ring. Khan O'Kelly, flanked by Donald J. BitDon and Otto Wrestling Machine entered and traded barbs with Flowers and Riddle and threw down a challenge to wrestle. The game Flowers was all in but in a Khan O'Kelly swerve, he announced Otto Schwanz would wrestle in the match rather than himself.
Schwanz activated the Wrestling Machine and began to dismantle the young Buddy Flowers, methodically and without emotion. Flowers would not quit, kept trying to fight back until he stunned Schwanz with a dropkick to the chest that pushed him into the corner turnbuckles. Otto Wrestling Machine took control and put it on automatic, but found himself at the wrong end of the pinfall decision, with Buddy Flowers getting a huge CWF victory over the veteran Schwanz.
Second-round 2019 Weaver Cup Tournament action was introduced pitting two-time former Cup Champion All Star "Ace" Arik Royal against another former Cup Champion, "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega for a trip to the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th. A physical battle ensued with Ortega seeming to turn the tide of battle by catching Royal on the canvas in a painful armbar, a setup for his Fujiwara armbar submission, and grinding Royal's shoulder into the mat. Royal survived the pain and turned the tide of battle to win by pinfall for his ticket to the Weaver Quarterfinal Round.
BitDon Corporation's CEO Donald J. BitDon entered with Khan O'Kelly to challenge the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs for his CWF WorldWide Television Championship. The CEO took the fight to the champion early but it only served to awaken the Beast inside of the TV champion, who roared to a decisive pinfall win to retain his championship.
The masked Corporate Number Dad entered the ring for singles action against fan favorite Cain Justice. They exchanged a few barbs as the official called for the bell and Number Braaah's dad seemed to take control of the match. That is, until he made the mistake of referring to Justice as "Trevor Light", which lit a fire under him. The training of the current NXT star showed itself as Justice beat down and pinned the mouthy Number Dad.
Scheduled as the main event, second-round 2019 Weaver Cup Tournament action was introduced pitting two past Cup Champions against each other for the second time in the evening. PWI International Heavyweight Champion AND CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champion All Star Roy Wilkins squared off with Brad Attitude in a match needed in the quest to become a two-time champion. Attitude went particularly vicious on a couple of occassions, even whipping the referee into Wilkins and swearing he didn't mean too. Wilkins kept his head on a swivel but was unable to keep Attitude from grabbing a chair and attacking him with it. Familiarity breeds contempt and perhaps the biggest factor in this match was Wilkins' scouting of his sometimes ally Attitude, as the All Stars end up with two members qualifying for the Weaver Cup Quarterfinals with a Wilkins pinfall win.
As the All Stars began to celebrate Corruption entered the arena with a house mic asking when Corruption gets their tag title rematch. PWI President Cross intervened and reminded Coach Gemini that if they wait until the Finals that both of his men may have to wrestle THREE matches to complete their contractual obligations, to which Jarry Carey replied that they'd take on Corruption "right now", which was acknowledged by Cross, who booked the bonus main event and called for an official.
Fans began returning to their seats as the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Title bout began pitting the champions Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal against Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga began. Corruption took a quick advantage, with the help of Dirty Daddy's steel pipe allowing them to take on Wilkins two-on-one for part of the bout. Wilkins held court until Royal was ready to compete and both survived numerous double-teams and squashed the challenge by pinfall in under ten minutes to retain their tag titles heading into the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals Night on August 24th. All Stars Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal join Cain Justice and Ethan A. Sharpe as the 2019 Final Four of the Weaver Cup Tournament.

"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
Cowboy Kool Jay & Posse Regulate Over Corruption and Tasty Waves Debut at CWF-RGL IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE!
A Special Photo Extra!
Former CWF Tag Champions Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards were introduced for live commentary on Twitch and tag team action kicked off CWF-RGL IN THE VALLEY OF VIOLENCE. Viva Las Amish's Hezekiah Hoskins and Jebediah Moss entered with Betsey the Chicken and Danny Vegas to take on the new tag team Tasty Waves' Buddy Flowers and Number Braaah. A surprisingly light-hearted start turned surprisingly violent later in the match as the tide of battle ebbed and flowed. The fan-favorite tag team Tasty Waves had a very successful debut, with a pinfall win over Viva Las Amish.
Viva Las Amish's Danny Vegas was beside himself over the outcome of the first match and then was beside Mike Mars, who was introduced as Vegas' singles opponent. Vegas threw the kitchen sink at Mars early on and Mars simply washed his face in it before turning things around and dropping Vegas to the canvas like a bad habit for a convincing pinfall victory.
Corruption's Dirty Daddy entered next to take on one of the company's "Young Guns", the masked Metallico in singles action. Masked Metallico took off quickly but Dirty Daddy brought him back to the canvas after several impressive offensive series and wore him down for a pinfall win.
Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe was introduced for singles action against "Young Gun" Adrian "Action" Jackson. Sharpe made an early exception to the fan's obsession with the muscular Jackson, which may have been a mind game from the start. Sharpe kept up with the smiling young star and eventually turned to a trusted ally for the opportunity to steal one from Action Jackson by pinfall.
CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay entered next to take on Corruption's Bellamy Koga, but made a request that the match be fought under Bunkhouse Rules for the RGL Championship. The referee agreed to the stipulation and the locker room entered to patrol ringside to ensure the fight stays inside of the squared circle. Koga and Kool Jay had to endure a very physical battle with both men pulling out the stops for the Championship. "Cowboy" Kool Jay retained his title by pinfall over the much larger Killer Koga in just under 10 minutes.
The BitDon Corporation's CEO Donald J. BitDon entered the arena to display the brand new BitDon CWF Golden Ticket to the fans. After a moment to bask in past glory, BitDon was interrupted by DeAndre Jackson, the Big Hurt of Professional Wrestling for a singles tilt. The two bulls butted heads and muscled each other all over the ring with BitDon getting a hard-fought pinfall win over the Big Hurt.
Tag team action brought out Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga to take on Michael McAllister and Adrian "Action" Jackson, an impromptu #1 Contenders battle for the CWF Tag Titles. McAllister and Jackson held court, controlled the fight but nearing the ten minute mark referee Joseph E. Hogan called for the bell and ruled a No Contest after losing control of the match. "Cowboy" Kool Jay entered with a cigar and the house mic asking the referee to make a match pitting all three of the shady Corruption team against McAllister, Jackson and himself. The referee agreed and ordered Corruption to the ring for battle.
The RGL Champion began for his team and took the Corruptor for a ride early in the match. Two angry teams brawled, grappled and fumed in the ring taking every opportunity to inflict damage on the other guys. All six men went to war and without the usual numbers advantage, Corruption was very cleanly beat with not one but TWO members pinned to the canvas for the final three count of the night, "Marshal" McAllister, "Action" Jackson and "Cowboy" Kool Jay riding off into the sunset as the fans exited the Sportatorium...

All Stars Roy Wilkins & Arik Royal Win CWF Tag Team Titles, Cain Justice & Ethan Alexander Sharpe Win Second-Round Weaver Cup Matches at CWF OH WHAT A SUMMER!
A Special Photo Extra!
C.L. Party and Nick Richards were introduced for commentary and the Sportatorium roared to life with the introduction of the first bout of the evening, tag team action. Viva Las Amish's Hezekiah Hoskins and Danny Vegas entered with Beckey the Chicken to take on Adrian "Action" Jackson and CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. With Betsey returned to the locker room, the teams squared off in an entertaining battle between familiar foes. Rookie "Action" Jackson forced the bell on this match after catching Hoskins in the Torture Rack for the submission.
PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx entered next to take on big Mike Mars in a non-title singles bout. The two bulls locked horns and exchanged greetings that rang around the Sportatorium like the impact of an automobile crash. The battle took its toll on both warriors but once Mars got the momentum late, he continued to move forward until he was able to beat the champion by pinfall, a wonderful argument for a future title shot.
Khan O'Kelly lead Team BitDon's Otto Wrestling Machine to the ring for singles action against the masked rookie, the Number Braaah. Otto Schwanz manhandled the youngster early, but when he found his footing, Number Braaah took the fight to the seasond Wrestling Machine. Otto, however, had seen this movie before and took the bout to the ringside area and regained control of the match with a time-limit challenging pinfall win.
CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs was out next to defend his title against the "Big Hurt of Pro Wrestling" DeAndre Jackson. These two let each other know at the bell that neither cared for the other and the mood of the fight reflected their animosity. Jackson opened his bag of tricks but it seems the Rampaging Beast saw them coming as he retained his title by pinfall.
Second-round action in the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament kicked off with Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe with Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga entered to take on former Weaver Cup Winner Kamakazi Kid. The tag champions made their presence known at ringside and as the match went on, by sliding into the ring and onto the apron, forcing the assigned referee to send them to the locker room. As the official ordered them to the back, Sharpe took advantage and landed a painful low blow behind his back, sending Kazi crumpled to the canvas. Sharpe advances to the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th by pinfall.
A highly-anticipated second-round Weaver Cup match followed, pitting the "Smoothest Skywalker" Cam Carter against the CWF Dojo's own Cain Justice. The match did not disappoint as the two tried to one-up each other and prove dominance over the other. The tide of battle rocked back and forth in a battle of rising stars of the indy wrestling scene. Cain Justice pulled off the pinfall to advance to the Weaver Finals, but thanked Cam Carter for the match and promised if he could win the Weaver Cup and the CWF title, he would most definitely grant Carter at title shot.
The main event was introduced as the All Stars team of PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins and Arik "Ace" Royal entered with Jarry Carey and Coach Gemini challenging Corruption's Killer Koga and Dirty Daddy, who arrived at ringside with the "Corruptor" Ethan A. Sharpe for their CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team titles. The savages were indeed fired up and after over twenty minutes of a quite personal battle, as predicted by Coach Gemini, the All Stars relieved Corruption of their tag titles by pinfall. A celebration erupted as they exited the arena with Gemini declaring he WILL have Triple Crown Champions at the Weaver Cup Finals on Saturday August 24th.
The All Stars celebration interrupted Khan O'Kelly's Twitch Aftershow before they swept out of the Sportatorium for an extended private celebration at another location.

Kamakazi Kid, Jesse Ortega, Roy Wilkins & Ethan A. Sharpe Win First-Round Weaver Cup Matches; Donald J. BitDon Wins First-Ever FREEDOM 500 Match For the CWF Golden Ticket At CWF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION 2!
A Special Photo Extra!
Chris Riddle and Robby Walsh were introduced for live commentary and the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament's first round continued in the ring just mere moments later with Redemption's Nick Richards squaring off against the masked Kamakazi Kid. The two former Tournament winners went at it hard as they are familiar old foes and don't have a lot of use for each other and their disdain for each other was more apparent as the match went on. Kazi wins by pinfall after going after a recent nagging injury of Richards to advance to the second round.
Another former Tournament winner Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega was up next to take on PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx in first-round Weaver Cup action. Foxx seemed to toy with the veteran Ortega early but Ortega's determination kept him in the bout until he could turn the momentum and advance by a pinfall over the much larger Foxx.
Robby Walsh hit the ring with a mic and asked rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson to join him for a few words for the fans. The young rising star is ready for ANYTHING and champing at the bit to get into the main event FREEDOM 500 Match.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Killer Koga was out next to take on PWI International Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins, who announced he was ready to sign a new All Stars contract. Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey cheered on the technical professor of the CWF ring as he withstood an assault and turned the battle around for a pinfall win to advance to the second round of the 16th Annual Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament.
Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered next with Dirty Daddy in tow to take on the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs in first-round Weaver Cup Tournament action. Sharpe ran into a brick wall early as the reigning CWF Worldwide Television Champion had his way with him at the start. Sharpe played the long game and survived the Beast's rampage and watched as he hit the concrete floor at ringside. Sharpe advanced to the second round of the tournament over Biggs by the most unexpected means, a count-out.
The first-ever FREEDOM 500 Match rules were explained, with the winner taking possession of the CWF Golden Ticket, allowing them to choose the title match of their choice. Thirteen competitors waited as they were introduced for one-on-one action. Team BitDon's Otto Schwanz was introduced first followed by the second entrant, the masked Number Braaah. As the 500 second clock expired, Schwanz forced the Braaah to submit with a new 500 second clock started for the third entrant, Grand Daddy Numbers. The elder statesmen of the Numbers Family was unfortunately counted out as he was unable to enter the ring before the referee's lax ten-count.
Mike Mars entered in the #4 slot and eliminated Schwanz by tossing him over the top rope. Mars then encountered and defeated Viva Las Amish's Hezekiah Hoskins by pinfall, Jebediah Moss entered as the #6 entrant. The bulls went head-to-head with Mars sending Moss to the floor over the top rope, eliminated. Viva Las Amish's Danny Vegas entered next and hesitated but eventually eliminated Mars over the top rope.
With Vegas in control of the match the #8 entrant, Cain Justice, sent him sailing around the ring and eventually forces Vegas to tap out. A new 500 second clock begins as Dirty Daddy hits the ring to take on former tag partner and thorn in the side Justice. Fan favorite Justice was sent to the showers early by Dirty, who then came face-to-face with the #10 entrant, Adrian "Action" Jackson. Jackson eventually sent Dirty Daddy to the showers with an over the top rope elimination, only to be Pearl Harbored over the top rope himself immediately after entrant #11 Donald J. BitDon hit the ring.
Buddy Flowers hit the ring in the #12 slot and takes the fight to the larger veteran BitDon, but the CEO kept his wits under fire and pinned Flowers, leaving only the #13 entrant between himself and the CWF Golden Ticket. The final 500 second clock began as Rising Genertion League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay hits the ring to battle Donald J. BitDon. They ARE somewhat familiar with each other despite the size desparity between them, but the heart of Kool Jay keeps motivating him to continue to fight. The Cowboy stayed in the match despite some big shots delivered by the CEO, but also had to contend with BitDon's second, Khan O'Kelly on the outside. Kool Jay is a survivor but could not survive the onslaught of Donald J. BitDon and company, eventually allowing himself to be pinned, giving Donald J. BitDon the coveted CWF Golden Ticket.
