CWF Mid Atlantic's Huge Anniversary event Battlecade XVI happens on Dec 26th and who better to discuss the card than the beloved Brad 'Stuttsy' Stutts.
Six Pack Challenge for the Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Championship:
BRAD ATTITUDE (C) VS. TREVOR LEE VS. CHET STERLING VS. ROY WILKINS VS. JOHN SKYLER VS. LANCE LUDE
The Mid-Atlantic Title has always been the measuring stick for who is the top pro wrestler in this region, but with wrestling in the Carolinas as hot as it's been in 30 years, there is more competition than ever for that spot. Champion Brad Attitude has thrown down the gauntlet saying line up the top 5 challengers and he'll defend against them in an elimination bout in until 1 man is left standing as champion.
For the Pro Wrestling International Heavyweight Championship:
ZANE DAWSON (C) VS. RIC CONVERSE
CWF used to be Ric Converse's "city" but now the returning former champ has his eyes set on the world - the international title held for almost 2 years now by the dangerous Dawson.
For the Worldwide Television Championship:
CEDRIC ALEXANDER (C) VS. SMITH GARRETT
The 2015 CWF Rumble winner may very well be the Mid-Atlantic Champion right now if not for Alexander, who feared Garrett winning that title on the same night Cedric won his would "steal his spotlight." They'll settle up 1 on 1 at Battlecade.
For the Mid-Atlantic Tag-Team Championship:
ARIK ROYAL & RAY KANDRACK (C) VS. challengers TBA
After wining the titles in an amazing match against the Aftermath, the new champs will make their first defense on the biggest card of the year!
For the PWI Ultra J Championship:
ETHAN CASE (C) VS. ETHAN ALEXANDER SHARPE
Sharpe always boasts of his skills but in the Torneo Cibernetico last month he DID defeat both Case AND Lance Lude to justify a title shot. Were they flukes or can Sharpe truly hang with the champion?!
Rising Generation League Tournament Finals:
JESSE ADLER VS. finalist TBD
There's 1 more semi-final round match still to come, the winner of which moves on to face reigning champ Adler in this year's tournament finals!
No Disqualification - Anything Goes
LEE VALIANT VS. NICK RICHARDS
There may be no two more ferocious fighters in CWF history than these two and with no disqualifications on the biggest night of the year we could see a whole new level of violence.
Killbillies Finally Collide
ARIC ANDREWS VS. EVAN BANKS
After a year of waiting, Banks finally gets the chance to seek revenge on his former tag-team partner and these two may tear each other apart!
Plus MORE to be announced featuring TREVOR LEE, CHET STERLING, ROY WILKINS, KAMAKAZI KID, LANCE LUDE, AARON BIGGS, JOHN SKYLER, MICHAEL MCALLISTER, "SIS," surprises and more! This is the biggest night of the year for CWF Mid-Atlantic and you never know who might show up!
Again the top 5 contenders who will join Brad Attitude in the main event will be announced TOMORROW on cwf247.com

LEGENDARY AAA HALL OF FAMER REY MYSTERIO STEPS INTO THE RING FOR SEASON TWO OF 'LUCHA UNDERGROUND,' EL REY NETWORK’S EXPLOSIVE WRESTLING SERIES PRODUCED BY MARK BURNETT
All-New Season Returns Wednesday, January 27 at 8 PM ET/PT
December 12, 2015, Los Angeles –Today, Rey Mysterio surprised a full house of fans during a taping of El Rey Network’s “Lucha Underground,” the wildly-popular Lucha Libre wrestling series from Emmy Award®-winning producer Mark Burnett, United Artists Media Group, Robert Rodriguez and FactoryMade Ventures. The legendary AAA Hall of Famer, whose high-flying moves have captivated fans for over 25 years, will join El Rey Network's freestyle wrestling series during the second season which premieres on El Rey Network on Wednesday, January 27 at 8pm ET/PT.
Mysterio, who stepped into the ring professionally at the age of 14, is one of the sport's most well-respected athletes. His rapid fire moves and high-flying style helped revolutionize pro-wrestling and his 21 titles (between WWE and WCW) have given him icon status among his fellow athletes and fans.
“When it comes to in-ring performers, Rey Mysterio is among the elite and we are thrilled to welcome him and his skills to the ‘Lucha Underground’ franchise reinforcing our promise to bring US audiences the very best in lucha libre wrestling,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Eric Van Wagenen.
Most recently, Mysterio captured the Lucha Libre World Cup in May 2015, leading his trios tag team to victory in a tournament against other three-man tag teams, representing wrestling talent and organizations from around the world. Performing in nearly every major North American wrestling organization, Mysterio’s fast-paced, high flying lucha libre-style offense quickly made him a fan favorite over the past 25 years. In addition to Rey Mysterio’s 21 title reigns, he was also part of the inaugural class of the AAA Hall of Fame in 2007.
"I am excited by the opportunity to join such an extraordinary group of athletes and be a part of the Lucha Underground family," Mysterio said. "It is a privilege to be able to represent this sport and have a chance to share my love of Lucha with passionate wrestling fans around the globe."
Rey Mysterio joins a growing group of legendary AAA Luchadores who have been part of the “Lucha Underground” franchise including Alberto El Patrón, Blue Demon Jr., Sexy Star, Mil Muertes, Fenix, Drago and Pentagon Jr. Together with U.S. based wrestlers Chavo Guerrero Jr., Konnan, Johnny Mundo and Prince Puma, the group provides enthusiastic viewers with an incredibly visceral and explosive experience with a focus on the artistry, originality, intense action and over the top characters that has come to define this phenomenal fan-favorite.
“Lucha Underground” is produced by United Artists Media Group in association with FactoryMade Ventures for El Rey Network. Executive producers are Mark Burnett, Eric Van Wagenen (also showrunner) and Brian Edwards of United Artists Media Group; Dorian Roldán from Lucha Libre AAA; Alejandro Garcia and Antonio Cué Sánchez-Navarro; El Rey Network co-founder Robert Rodriguez; and FactoryMade Ventures, El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa and Skip Chaisson of El Rey Network and Skip Film. The series will be distributed internationally by United Artists Media Group.
