Carolina News and Notes

From Jeff Richards:

ATTITUDE DROPS BELT -- It was rather a backhanded way of winning a championship in CWF Mid-Atlantic. Reminiscent of the old WWE Hardcore title, the 2015 Golden Ticket winner decided to cash in his opportunity for Attitude's CWF Heavyweight crown. That man was Marcellus King, who became a CWF titleholder in less than four minutes this past Saturday night (8/22) in Gibsonville, NC.
King has been a thorn in the side of past champions and is now the true "head honcho" in this territory. Challengers such as Worldwide TV Champion Chet Sterling, Trevor Lee and whoever wins this year's Weaver Cup will surely step up. Attitude was actually working Sterling prior to losing the belt. After going 18 minutes, Sterling pulled off the upset pin in a non-title Weaver Cup quarterfinal match-up with Attitude.
That is when the dastardly King made his move, stipulating there could be no outside interference to assist an already injured Attitude. King will face Sterling in one non-title Weaver Cup semi-final this coming Saturday (8/29). The other semi-final pits Jesse Adler against technically smooth Roy Wilkins. Adler surprised Lee Valiant by pinfall and should give Wilkins his money's worth at the Sportatorium in five days.
Other action from "Heartache Tonight" saw Aric Andrews pinning Mark James; Prakash Sabar, Sis & Michael McAllister defeating Aaron Biggs, Chris Lea & the returning Xsiris; Lee pinning Darius Lockhart; and Arik Royal putting away Nick Richards. is a top source for all breaking CWF Mid-Atlantic news. Carolinas News & Notes will be live in Alamance County for the Weaver Cup finals.

Southern Fried Championshp Wrestling News and Notes

From Larry Goodman:

The update on the injury suffered by "The Solution" Rob Chicano at the August 14 event is not good. Chicano underwent surgery for a broken orbital bone and is anticipating another surgery to address nerve damage. At this writing, Chicano still does not have vision in his right eye and worst case scenario, he could lose the eye. Chicano's injury occurred when Dark Mon stomped his face. It is mind boggling that Chicano was able to finish the match given his condition.

The AIWF American Title tournament takes place October 2, which is a Friday night. The field for the 12 man tournament is as follows: Ethan Case, Kyle Matthews, Chip Day, Kameron Kade, Logan Creed, Geter, Shane Marx, Francisco Ciatso, Tyson Dean, Fred Yehi, Steele and Jagged Edge.  Geter, Marx, Steele and Jagged Edge will receive first round byes. An announcement about special sudden death rules will be forthcoming from SFCW owner Charles Anschutz.

Interview with CWF Mid-Atantic Booker Brad Stutts

From Jeff Richards:

Looking at some of the great booking minds on the independent scene, two hours up the road from me is Brad Stutts. Starting his career in CWF Mid-Atlantic as a manager, Stutts has taken the reigns of this fledgling organization and gone gung-ho. He has a not so simple formula he transcribes to, and some of the matches this group promotes are simply top-notch. Let's listen in on Stutt's philosophy, career goals, and what he sees as the future of N.C. wrestling.........

JR: How did you get into booking from the managerial side of wrestling?
Stutts: It's something I've always wanted to do -- when I was a kid I was much more interested in putting together line-ups with my action figures than I was actually playing with them and acting out the matches. I just wanted to see who could go where and what finish could lead to what return. Truthfully I've re-booked pretty much every card I've ever seen or been on in my head. I like to deconstruct it and ask myself how I would've done it differently or what could've been more efficient. That's not to say I necessarily think I could've done it better; it's just a little mental exercise I've always done driving home from the show or during the week when I should've been paying attention in work or school.

As for getting to actually do it in real life, it was just kind of was bestowed to me by CWF management. They knew I always wanted to do it. Guys had kind of poked fun at me for years for making suggestions on and pitching ideas for damn near everything every week. So when the incumbent decided he'd had his fill of it and sought out a replacement, I was just kind of the natural one to do it because they knew I was familiar with everyone, that I would adhere to the standards set by the company and that I had everyone's best interests at heart. Even having been with the company 8 years by that point there were some growing pains but honestly it's been pretty smooth sailing for a long time now.

Anarchy Wrestling Hostile Environment Report for August 22 - The End of Anarchy Wrestling

From Larry Goodman:

Hostile Environment marked the end of era. After 10 years and 500 television episodes, Anarchy wrestling is no more. 

And Anarchy went out with a bang. Hostile Environment was a grand, dramatic event, easily the company's best show of the year.

Attendance was a hot, hot 200. The Anarchy Arena is wonderful place to see pro wrestling when it's filled to the brim like it was last night. 

As uninspiring as the telling of the PCW invasion story had been up to this point, the Anarchy creative team came through with  a spectacular ending in the War Games. They had the crowd right where the wanted them - pulling for Team Anarchy and Jeff G. Bailey with everything they had.

That wasn't the only great ending. Several other matches delivered big time on their stories as well.

The quality of the wrestling at Anarchy has rarely been an issue and that most assuredly was not the case at Hostile Environment.  Mikael Judas and Todd Sexton knocked it out of the park. Buck and Jagged Edge weren't far behind.

Ironically, the high stakes stipulation of the War Games was that if Team PCW won, Stephen Platinum  would gain control of the promotion and shut it down.  And while Anarchy is in fact done, this won't be the end of wrestling in Cornelia at the building known as the Church of Southern Wrestling.

Wrestling returns to The Church on October 10 under a new name, with new leadership and with a reconstituted talent roster. Many of the key people are leaning towards continuing. One pivotal figure that is not staying on is Bill Behrens, a loss that comes as a huge blow. Play-by-play announcer Bret Wolverton also finished up. More will be revealed in the weeks to come.
