slated for Feb. 23 in Graham
Wrestling Federation / FWA-Carolinas returns to Graham, NC at
the Graham Rec. Center, this Saturday, February 23rd at 7:30pm
for the star studded event "Heartbreak." Acting commissioner,
William L. Cross has worked feverishly to line up another
incredible event. This one is sure to have the fans talking for
weeks afterwards. There will be more than hearts that break this
Saturday. With the impressive lineup, expect to see some bones
breaking too. Old scores will be settled, new feuds will begin,
and someone will leave Graham on a stretcher!
main event is a special grudge match pitting WWF veteran Otto
Schwanz vs. WCW/WWF veteran Madd Maxx. The last time
these two saw each other Schwanz had cost Madd the heavyweight
title and they fought all over the arena and even into the parking
lot afterwards! Now both are considered #1 contenders to the
FWA-Carolinas Hwt. Title. This match will determine who will
stay the top contender. Commissioner Cross realized that he probably
wouldn't be able to get a clear winner so a very special stipulation
has been added to the bout. The match will be a first for the
FWA-Carolinas... a stretcher
match! The only way to win is for your opponent to be carried
out on a stretcher! The match might not settle their feud
but it certainly will determine who stays at the top of the contenders
his "title suspension clause," Gemini Kid finally
receives another title shot at FWA-Carolinas Cruiserweight Champion,
Mikael Yamaha. Gemini was given the good news during the January
event, but here's some not so good news for Gemini... the match
will be a 3-Way Dance for the title with Michael Yamaha
vs. Gemini Kid vs. Sexton Tyler. This could turn
out to be very surprising as there has been quite a lot of conflict
regarding the title belt between Yamaha and Tyler with Gemini
the one stirring the pot. Will the brothers eliminate Gemini
and then finally settle it in the ring? Or will Gemini continue
the manipulation and somehow reclaim his lost championship? Expect
this cruiserweight challenge to be a non-stop battle for the
of three title bouts will feature the FWA-Carolinas Tag Team
Champions, The $outh$ide Playas defending against the
Storm Brothers. The match pits the quickness and street
smarts of the Playas against the hardcore violence of the Storms.
The Playas have met and defeated all tag teams in the Carolinas
so far, but this is one storm that may not weather.
The third title
bout will be for the FWA Women's World Championship. After her
upset non-title victory over champion Amber Holly in January,
GeeStar will receive a title shot against Holly. GeeStar
is out to prove her win was no fluke and claim the gold.
that wasn't enough, the extreme lucha icon Cham Pain,
superstar C.W. Anderson, former heavyweight champion "Awesome"
Jeff Justice, the 7-foot giant Granite, and many
more will also be in action! Also slated to appear in Graham...

Women's Top 100
CWF/FWA-Carolinas are proud to announce that two of our women
competitors have recently been recognized as two of the best
in the world. The controversial but only respected Top 100 Joshi
World Rankings of active female wrestlers was released on Feb.
1. The "DVD Joshi 100" is published semi-annually and
is considered a true attempt to rank female wrestlers around
the globe. Due to the strict requirements of the list, very few
North American females even make the list at all. In fact, of
the 100 females, only 14 currently active females from the United
States and Canada were selected.
In a list dominated
by the incredible Japanese female athletes, we're proud to note
that our very own FWA Women's World Champion Amber Holly
(# 95 overall, # 10 in US/Canada) and her top rival, GeeStar
(# 97 overall, # 12 in US/Canada) made the cut! Being ranked
on this list is even more impressive by the fact that far more
famous female competitors such as Lita and Trish Stratus did
not even make the rankings.
thickens as ECW Superstar enters
The hotly contested
FWA-Carolinas Heavyweight Title currently held by "NiteStic"
Eddie Brown, just got hotter. ECW superstar C.W. Anderson
has made his intentions clear that he is out to add that title
to his long list of accomplishments.
New interim commissioner
William L. Cross has declared that it's just too close
to name a number one contender as there are now five top wrestlers
with legitimate claims to the # 1 slot. Anderson joins the list
with Madd Maxx, Otto Schwanz, Cham Pain,
and Jeff Justice.
Cross has added
a new poll to the Commissioner's
to ask the fans who they think is the real # 1 contender.
A tremendous turnout
of fans filled the Graham Rec. Center last night for the CWF/FWA-Carolinas
event entitled "Ultimatum." Including the incredible
return to wrestling by Cham Pain!
The opening bout
saw the 7-foot giant Granite and Playboy Tripp
take on the 400-lbs+ Corey Edsel and Kenny James.
Granite did the absolutely increadible feat of chokeslamming
Edsel from the top rope!

The operation was held on Friday and the good news is that the
transplant was a success. Thanks to sponsors, advance ticket
sales, those attending the event, and the wrestlers that donated
their time to make the fund raising event a success, over $2000

at the Clayton High School in Clayton, NC. We cannot thank those
involved enough for their help!

WWF veteran Otto
Schwanz had gold in his eyes all night for the CWF/FWA-Carolinas
event "BattleCade." Schwanz nearly captured the FWA-Carolinas
Tag Team Titles with Jeff Justice, but a slight miscue cost them
the match. Schwanz then floored his partner with his "brain
scrambling" powerbomb. Schwanz would be the deciding factor
in the main event as well, costing Madd Maxx the heavyweight
title. Maxx went to the locker-room and pulled Schwanz back out,
put him on a rolling cart, and delivered him to ringside for
a post-match brawl.

Hoping to put
an end to the rift in the Hirydaz, Sexton Tyler called
out his brother Mikael Yamaha to ask him to tag with him
next month for the FWA-Carolinas Tag Team Titles. Yamaha declined
stating that he would be defending his cruiserweight title next
month. Caprice "Ice" Coleman and GeeStar
came to the ring to tell Yamaha he should accept the deal because
Coleman was going to be the new cruiserweight champion at the
end of the night. Just then The Main Attraction (Chris
Steele & Scott Powers) came through the crowd and jumped
the Hirydaz from behind. All three pounded on Yamaha and Tyler.
Afterwards Tyler challenged the threesome to take them on in
a 3 on 2 match but Amber Holly said she would be the third member
to even the odds. Coleman and company laughed at the prospect,
but accepted the challenge for later that night, postponing his
cruiserweight title match.

Rumor has it that WWF veteran,
Otto Schwanz, will return. Schwanz has been outraged at
the fans for continuing to call him a "chicken," even
after Schwanz defeated Madd Maxx in a non-title match last month.
Schwanz claims he is the true # 1 contender and anything could
happen if the fans again call him a "chicken" when
he steps in the ring! He has made it clear he has come to capture
gold and it doesn't look like anyone can stop this superstar.

Gemini Kid scores
pinfall over Yamaha
A special FWA-Carolinas
challenge match occured on Sunday, Dec. 16 in Greensboro, NC
for Ringside Championship Wrestling. The team of Gemini Kid
& GeeStar defeated Mikael Yamaha & Amber Holly
in a special mixed tag team challenge match. Gemini scored the
pinfall over FWA-Carolinas Cruiserweight Champion, Mikael Yamaha.
The non-title win is "proof that I am the real top contender"
said Gemini. This clouds an already murky title hunt, as both
Sexton Tyler and Gemini Kid have disputed claims as the
top ranked challenger to the FWA-Carolinas Cruiserweight Title
held my Mikael Yamaha. Should Yamaha survive the challenge of
the official # 1 contender, Caprice "Ice" Coleman,
at the Dec. 29th "BattleCade" event in
Graham, NC, it will be a tough call for FWA-Carolinas Commissioner
Eddie Gilchrist to decide who will receive the next title
shot. Gemini Kid has been banned from receiving anymore title
matches against Yamaha until the end of the year.

announced as Top Rope Championship Wrestling. TRCW will also
