CWF 80'S NIGHT II: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO kicked off with the introduction of the commentary team's Bob "JR" Ross and CL Barbie. CL introduced PWI President William L. Cross, who invited out CWF Tag Team Champions and 3rd Annual Kernodle Tag Team Tournament champions TKOPA's "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. and Ulysse "OPA" Demos. The All Stars interrupted and it led to a conflict before their main event tag title rematch.

The Amish Outlaws Hezekiah Hoskins and Jebediah Moss entered with Danny Vegas and Betsy the Chicken for opening singles action pitting Vegas against PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx in non-title action. Vegas took his time after the bell rang in removing his gear, with Foxx getting more irritated ever second that passed. Foxx caught Vegas and began giving him the business and Vegas actually turned the tides and took control before big Snooty got fired up and finished the deal with a pinfall win.

JR Ross introduced Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards. Richards explained he has injured both heels and is unable to compete and wanted partner McAllister to get back into the game with a replacement until he can return. Richards then introduced his recommended partner, rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson and McAllister and Jackson climbed into the ring for their first match as a tag team. Corporate Number Dad entered, followed by his father, Grand Daddy Numbers, who never made it but a few feet beyond the announce table. Corporate Number Dad REFUSED to get caught in Jackson's Torture Rack and SUBMITTED with McAllister still the legal man to avoid the painful submission hold. However, "Action" Jackson continued forward, hoisted the masked accountant across his shoulders where he promptly whimpered as he tapped out for the second time in the match! McAllister and Jackson win by submission.

Danny Vegas and the Amish Outlaws returned to ringside with Betsy the Chicken for an interview segment, leading to Hezekiah Hoskins taking on CWF RGL Champion "Cowboy" M Jay in non-title action. M Jay moonwalked into the arena and across the ring before asking if Annie was alright. The Artist Formerly Known As Kool Jay controlled the match for almost eight minutes but got caught in an Amish onslaught both in the ring and from the floor allowing Hoskins to win a huge bout over the Rising Generation League Champion by pinfall.

Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe, Dirty Daddy and Bellamy Koga were out next for a scheduled tag team bout and Sharpe announced that he would second and allow Dirty and Koga wrestle Cam Carter and Cain Justice in a special attraction tag team bout. A story with many chapters unfolded, with all four competitors holding court at different points of the match. The onslaught of kicks to the head may have weighed the outcome as Justice and Carter battled Corruption for nearly eighteen minutes before winning by pinfall.

Former CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Kamakazi Kid returned to the ring with the house mic and addressed the stipulations added to the KAZI RULES match scheduled for CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE, and Kazi never blinked. He agreed to putting both his mask AND his career on the line against Andrews on June 1st, capping it off with about 15 pounds of thumbtacks poured across the ring canvas.

Festivities continued into intermission capped off with Khan O'Kelly's Solid Gold Dance Competition, which apparently was won by a last-second entrant, the masked Grand Daddy Numbers, who brought his own "jam" to show off his dancing skills to.

Donald J. BitDon entered next along with his Director of Marketing, Khan O'Kelly to challenge the CWF Mid-Atlantic Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs. The two big men went toe-to-toe in a hard-hitting affair that eventually spilled to the floor where Biggs proved to be an unmovable object. Biggs finished off the veteran challenge of BitDon by pinfall with a textbook Thesz press.

The All Stars hit the ring with an extended introduction by Jarry Carey, who welcomed Coach Gemini and his team of PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins and "AceGawd" Arik Royal for a main event rematch from the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament Championship. The parallels between this night's main event and a 90's era Rock & Roll Express v. Midnight Express main event are undeniable. The fans were on the edge of their seats, screaming their lungs out as four men battled in epic fashion. The final bell was called for with only 16 seconds remaining in the 30 minute time limit, a pinfall win for TKOPA, who retain the titles and are red hot going into CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE 2019 on June 1!

"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

BitDon Corportation's Director of Marketing Khan O'Kelly was introduced for commentary to kick off CWF Rising Generation League's THE WILD BUNCH.

All Star "AceGawd" Arik Royal entered next, demanded the house mic and reintroduced himself before "Party Starter" Keith Mack entered for a little business of his own. The two veterans angled and pitched for several minutes before locking up and trying to prove dominance over each other. The two big men brawled and grappled until Royal was able to end the affair with a pinfall win.

Three-way singles action was up next as three new competitors stepped into the Sportatorium ring to face in singles action. Garrett Sinclair made his entrance, followed by Corey Allen Roberts and big Deandre Jackson. Sinclair made the most noise early and witnessed as Roberts and Jackson made a gentleman's agreement to suppress him. After several conflicts between all three, Jackson ended up on the floor as Corey Allen Roberts pinned Sinclair for the win.

Newcomer "Beefcake Bro" Ramo was out next to take on PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx in non-title singles action. Foxx started fast, beating his opponent to the punch at every turn, but Ramo got his wind and bearings and began to try to take Foxx apart as the tide of the match turned. Chapel Hill's Foxx got his second wind and tired of being a punching back and retook the momentum, winning the bout by pinfall.

Young powerhouse Peter Built entered next to take on rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson in singles action. The two went to battle to determine a true bull of the woods and both showed off their skills and abilities. The impressive newcomer went toe-to-toe with Jackson, who still refuses to back down as long as he's standing, but Jackson was able to catch him in the Torture Rack, forcing a submission out of Peter Built.

CWF Mid-Atlantic's Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay entered to defend his title against newcomer Lucky Ali, a confident young athlete with an attitude. Ali stated he would defeat the Sheriff of CWF Mid-Atlantic and went to work to make that happen at the bell. Kool Jay surprisingly started out on the canvas, working up to a leglock to ground the powerful young challenger before expanding his scope to the entire ring. Ali relentlessly pounded on the RGL Champion every time he could get his hands on him, but Kool Jay retaliated with cool calculated responses that are second nature to the champion. "Cowboy" Kool Jay gets another pinfall win to retain his title over the powerful and impressive Lucky Ali.

Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe and Dirty Daddy entered the arena to challenge CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions TKOPA's Teddy Ireland Jr. and Ulysse Demos in the night's main event. The familiarity of the two teams may have tempered whatever advantage TKOPA may have had coming off of their exciting 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament wins, but familiarity is said to also breed contempt as well, setting up a physical title defense.

It took nearly twenty-five minutes to decide this one, with the champions retaining the belts with a pinfall win, sending Corruption off to once again make a few alterations to their plan for the next time the two meet.

PWI President William L. Cross opened the two-day event by introducing the guests of honor, Don and Rocky Kernodle, who welcomed the fans to the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament.

The first of four first-round tournament matches was introduced, pitting TGA Moss and Jamal the Titan against PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx and CWF RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. A physical and personal looking battle erupted with TGA Moss and Jamal advancing with a pinfall win.

Strength In Numbers' Number Man and Number Braaah with Grand Daddy Numbers entered next to battle CWF Worldwide Television Champion Aaron Biggs and Mike Mars in first-round tournament action. Biggs and Mars advance in the shortest tournament bout of the year by pinfall.

Former CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Tank Lawson and Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride drew Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy for first-round tournament action and immediately began disrupting their famous plan. The BTF Express' McBride and Lawson advance with a pinfall win over the masked Numbers family.

Danny Vegas and "Amish Outlaw" Hezikiah Hoskins along with Jebidiah Moss and Betsey the Chicken entered for the final first-round match against TKOPA's Ulysse "OPA" Demos and Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. The fan-favorite TKOPA advanced to the second round with a convincing pinfall win over the Amish Outlaws and Vegas.

Cam Carter and Cain Justice were introduced for a special attraction singles bout and a grueling mat match between two of the rising young stars of the area, with most of the action taking place on the canvas, which would seem to be a disadvantage to Carter. Carter, however, withstood a bit of a beating to come back and defeat Justice by pinfall.

Second-round Kernodle Tag Team Tournament action was introduced pitting first-round winner TGA Moss and Jamal the Titan against Redemption's Michael McAllister and Nick Richards. Moss and Jamal hid in the shadows and attacked Redemption during their introduction, dropping both men to the concrete at ringside. Redemption, however, continued to fight and turned the battle in their favor, advancing by pinfall to the Saturday evening Finals.

CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions BitDon ICO's Donald J. BitDon and Otto Schwanz with Khan O'Kelly entered to take on "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs and Mike Mars in second-round action with the titles on the line. The champions escaped with the titles and avanced to the Saturday night Finals by pinfall.

All Stars' Arik "AceGawd" Royal and PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins, with their entourage of Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey entered to battle Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride and Tank Lawson for the ticket into the Saturday Finals. Coach Gemini expertly led the All Stars to victory with a little mayhem and a helping hand from the floor.

Revolutionary's Darius Lockhart and Big Time Yah entered to battle TKOPA's Teddy Ireland Jr. and Ulysse Demos in the Friday main event for an invite to the Saturday Finals. An fast-paced match erupted with Lockhart and Yah dishing out the punishment as Demos and Ireland Jr. seemed to roll with the punches and regroup for the next salvo. TKOPA caused the crowd to roar when the three-count was made and it was announced they would advance to the Saturday Finals.

The Saturday Finals kicked off with a few words by both Kernodle Brothers and PWI President William L. Cross.

"Cowboy" Kool Jay's Rising Generation League Championship was on the line in the evening's opening bout, defending against Amish Outlaw Hezikiah Hoskins with Danny Vegas, Jebidiah Moss and Betsey the Chicken. The Cowboy ruled the range and now rules the farmyard with a pinfall win to retain his belt.

With the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Titles on the line, semi-final action began for the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament pitting champion BitDon ICO's Donald J. BitDon and Otto Schwanz with Khan O'Kelly against TKOPA's Ulysse "OPA" Demos and "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. Coming from behind in a physical fight, TKOPA advances to the main event Tournament Final and became CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions with one simple pinfall win.

The All Stars gang hit the arena, with Coach Gemini immediately demanding the match be called a forfeit due to the injury of Nick Richards on the previous night. PWI President William L. Cross stepped in and refused to disappoint the Kernodle Brothers, who were there to see tag team wrestling, and allowed RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay to tag with McAllister. Fighting under protest, the All Stars pulled off the win to advance to the Final to face TKOPA in the main event.

For the first time ever, the PWI Central Carolinas Championship was scheduled to be defended in the Sportatorium with Danny Vegas challenging champion Snooty Foxx. Jebidiah Moss lurked at ringside in the Vegas corner and watched as his friend came back from a big disadvantage to force Foxx to make a break to catch his breath. Foxx did, however get a second wind and retained his championship by pinfall in just over ten minutes.

Aric Andrews entered with a steel chair, forced CL Party to exit and sat down to give his public response to Kamakazi Kid's challenge for a Kazi Rules Match at Absolute Justice. Surprisingly, Andrews agrees to put his career and livelyhood on the line, but stipulated that if Kazi loses, he unmasks and retires from wrestling.

Eight man tag team action was introduced pitting Strength In Numbers' Corporate Number Dad, Number Braaah and Grand Daddy Numbers with Corruption's Dirty Daddy against Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride, Tank Lawson, Mike Mars and Adrian "Action" Jackson. The fan favorites won by submission (an "Action" Jackson Torture Rack!) two seconds past the twenty minute mark and two minutes and two seconds after Grand Daddy Numbers made his way to his team's corner.

Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered with Dirty Daddy to take on Cam Carter in a singles challenge match asked for after Carter's win over former Corruption member Cain Justice. Sharpe showed off a lot of fast-paced chain wrestling and kept pace with the high-flying Cam Carter from bell to bell. Sharpe took advantage around the ten minute mark but Carter turned the tides and finished him off by pinfall.

The weekend's main event, the Final match of the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament, saw the rolling All Star squad enter to take on the red-hot new CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions TKOPA. The All Stars asked the champions to defend their titles, to which they agreed, and the building was electric as the official called for the bell and an instant classic unfurled before our very eyes.

Were the stars aligned? Was there something electric about the moment? Did lightning strike? Yes, Yes and quite possibly, Yes.

After nearly 30 minutes of battle in a hot and humid arena, both teams were still going strong. Then it happened. TKOPA's Ulysse Demos and Teddy Ireland Jr. rode that lightning bolt of history and defeated the highly-decorated All Star team to retain their titles and win the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tourament.

After introduction of the commentary team the All Stars' Jarry Carey entered and introduced Coach Gemini, the host of the Coach's Corner segment. Gemini called out red-hot rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson and went as far as offering him a "position" with the All Stars. When Jackson turned them down, things got a little physical and PWI Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins made his presence felt, joining in to attack the rookie. Jackson held up his end and was eventually in the ring alone, demanding a shot at Wilkins' title. Gemini agreed to a match later in the evening, but refused to put the title on the line.

Singles action kicked off SKY HIGH with the Corporate Number Dad leading out his youngest son, Number Braaah, to the ring for a singles match against TKOPA's Ulysse "OPA" Demos. The fan favorite OPA had the fans solidly behind him with his return to the USA, but Number Braaah refused to join in with the fans. Demos showed off some new in-ring moves and took the masked Braaah to the canvas, forcing him to submit to a Figure Four Leglock.

Danny Vegas was up next teaming with the Amish Outlaws Jebidiah Moss and Hezikiah Hoskins to take on Redemption's Michael McAllister, Mike Mars and Bobby Wohlfert in six-man tag team action. An actual bruhaha erupted with all six men delivering damage and mayhem nearly ensued before Amish Outlaws and Vegas finished off the match with a pinfall win with an assist from a churn. Yes. A churn.

Cain Justice hits the ring, demands the house mic and once again calls out Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe. Sharpe eventually does make his way to ringside, but he came with partners Dirty Daddy and Bellamy Koga in tow. Sharpe explained he and Dirty Daddy had a qualifier match later in the night and only Koga was "free" to wrestle a challenge match, to which Justice agreed to. Justice began his calculated torment of the big man, and the Corruption team continued to make an effort to help decide the outcome of the match. After the eleven minute mark, Justice finds himself on the floor at ringside as Dirty Daddy clubs him with the steel pipe he brings to ringside, with the referee unaware. They toss him back into the ring and Koga steals a win, albiet a three-on-one battle.

PWI International Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins was introduced and joined at ringside by Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey for his non-title singles match against rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson. Jackson entered hot and Wilkins tried to let him burn himself out, making him run, attacking his midsection and breathing and by constantly bailing to the floor when there was no advantage to remaining in the squared circle. Wilkins more or less controlled the first nine minutes of the match before Jackson realized he was still capable of snatching the champion off of his feet and forcing him to submit in the Torture Rack. However, the numbers game won out again, with Wilkins taking the rookie down for the three count.

Aric Andrews grabbed a steel chair and the house mic and made himself comfortable in the ring, ready to resume his running monologue with the CWF faithful. Before he could finish a sentence, Kamakazi Kid flew out of the back into the ring and clobbered Andrews with the steel chair as he exited the ring and made his way out of the arena. Kazi grabbed the mic and challenged Aric Andrews to his possibly career-changing signature match, a KAZI RULES MATCH for CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE!

Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy entered along with Bellamy Koga for the final Qualifier Match for the 3rd Annual KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT against PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx and CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. A fight between the very familiar foes erupted and The fan favorites took a quick advantage over the Corruption team. The battle waged back and forth, leading up to a huge momentum advantage for the eventual victor, qualifying for the big two-night tournament in May. However, there was no winner after Cain Justice ran back into the arena to attack Ethan A. Sharpe and during the confusion, the referee calls for the bell, stating that a wrestler had put his hands on him, throwing the match out completely.

Jarry Carey basked in the glow of the adoring Sportatorium fans and introduced All Star Arik "AceGawd" Royal, who was scheduled to challenge CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs for his belt. The two big men butted heads, brawled, powered, shoved and kicked their way to a stalemate, with the traditional ten minute time limit expiring with no winner. Royal began challenging Biggs to re-start the match, beat him if he wanted to remain champion and the Rampaging Beast bit, allowing the official to start the match again with the title still on the line. The bulls of the woods fought an epic battle that broke down to fisticuffs and survival and three minutes after the match was began a second time, Biggs pinned the Ace to retain the title.

Nobody expected the sudden return of Ulysse "OPA" Demos.

Nobody expected TKOPA to win the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Titles.

Nobody expected TKOPA to win the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament!

History was made this past weekend when TKOPA's Teddy "TKO" Ireland Jr. and Ulysse "OPA" Demos defeated the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions, BitDon ICO, which had already announced the belts were up on every match. Nobody expected these two charismatic young men to resume their run as a well-oiled tag unit, but they did, surviving and winning four big hard-hitting matches in a two-night span to win it all.

Yep, I'm pretty sure that IS what making history looks like, kids.

IndyInsiders.Com has had a recent surge in followers on Facebook since Kernodle Brothers Tag Tournament and we'd like to welcome you all to the family of #Neckbone! You have indeed found your hook-up!

The "next generation" of CWF Mid-Atlantic superstars are already stepping through the ropes at the Sportatorium. New faces, new folks in masks and even new voices are being heard more and more each week and it appears a youth movement of sorts is taking hold. The Rising Generation League events are becoming an "underground sensation" known for crazy surprises and fun matches and RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay is one of the most beloved fan favorites on the roster today. Big things are in store for rookies Adrian "Action" Jackson and that crazy masked Number Braaah too, as both have already stepped up numerous times early in their professional careers. Keep your eyes open for even more new talent in the squared circle soon!

Grand Daddy Numbers.

Yes, the masked competitor who returned to ringside for the first time in 52 years at the Kernodle Tag Tournament as a second for Strength In Numbers and then scheduled to compete in eight-man tag team action on the Finals night. The Numbers family is boasting it's largest number to date with the return of Grand Daddy, the Corporate Number Dad and his sons Number Man and Number Braaah. Keep your eyes on these masked jokers as there is no telling what kind of mayhem they'll be involved in during coming months.

It's going to be HOT in the coming months, ya'll. Join us, why don't ya? We'll supply the #Neckbone if ya'll will bring the #NoiZ!

See you at ringside kids!
