We would like to congratulate Lee Bambino on his award of Announcer of the Year for 2023 from Wrestling News World. We are incredibly proud of the work Lee has done as our lead broadcaster. We wish him continued success.

New Year's Eve Rumble Returns

For the third year in a row, Continental Wrestling League will start off the year with a two-hour special and a 30-Man Rumble to decide who will challenge Torment for the North American Heavyweight Championship at the Eighth Anniversary showcase. Last year, "The Cornerstone" Riley McManus won and went on to beat Spencer Spade. The previous year, Matty Faith won and went on to challenge Spencer Spade for the championship. Who will win the rumble this year?

This will also be the first year that there will be a women's rumble to determine who will challenge Lauren Easter for the North American Women's Championship!

Mick Muscles & Alex Ostund Signed

After impressing on a recent episode of Saturday Night Slammasters, Mick Muslces and Alex Ostund, collectively known as the New Towers of Power have been signed to non-exlcusive contracts with CWL.

Hall of Fame Induction Returns

This year, the night before the Eight Anniversary at the same reception honoring the receipients of the 2023 CWL Year End Awards, we will see the Hall of Fame grow in size. It has been several years since any inductions have taken place.

It has been announced that one tag team will be inducted -- though both members will also be getting credit for their solo careers in CWL, and two more men will be inducted. Both of those men achieved success in the singles and tag ranks.

Who do you think will be the four men inducted to the Hall of Fame this year? Let us know!

Wow, America didn't do so well in general in 2023 - what was it, two end of year awards?

I struggle to keep up with this diary, but I love catching up! Gutting that the CC main event flopped, though, especially with it clearly being set up for a return match down the line...

That's showbiz sometimes! Fortunately, Torment is all healed up -- he was healed on like, the second day of 2024, so he won't be hampered by his knee any longer.

And nope. 2023 was a year dominated by SOTBPW -- except for Announcer of the Year! Go Lee, bringing some year end love to us.

I sat behind a desk that I both loved and loathed. The pages of the calendar had just turned to a new year and I was looking at a bright financial forecast, a bright future for my company and I should be feeling great about it, but at the same time, I wasn’t a young man anymore. I was sixty-three years old and had spent forty-five years of my life dedicated to the business that I loved. I felt something like Washington at the end of his Presidency when he wrote, “ am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence; and that, after forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as myself must soon be to the mansions of rest.”

I did not think I was going to die soon. I also did not think I was going to retire soon, but I did contemplate it from time to time. Like on snowy January days when I was sitting at a desk in a building miles away from my wife. I could be home with her, enjoying the fruits of our mutual labor. I could be spending more time with Cora. I could garden. Not that that was likely. Today I just felt old. I felt every one of my forty-five years in the business. Every bump.

I took a drink from the steaming cup of coffee on my desk. We had just finished our best year in business. Lee Bambino was honored as the best announcer in wrestling. Spencer Spade, Riley McManus, Ross Henry, and Ash Campbell all finished in the top two hundred on the yearly 500 Best Wrestlers list. Anticipation for the eighth-anniversary show was incredibly high. Last year had provided us with our five best matches ever and sixteen of our best twenty matches. It was without a doubt our best year critically and commercially.

Yet here I was. Feeling some kind of way about my career. Truth be told, I missed being in the ring. There was no way I was going to get back in the ring, but I missed it. I missed *feeling* the roar of the crowd, not just hearing it. I missed being under the bright, hot lights. I missed running the ropes. I missed the sweat and the spit and the blood and my body slamming down into the wood. I missed tagging in Joel. I missed being in sync. I did not get in wrestling to promote and book. Sure, I liked promoting and booking. There was something satisfying in it. There was something rewarding about seeing a sold-out crowd and knowing that I promoted it. Or getting the ratings back and seeing over a million people were tuning in to see my company’s weekly television show. It was gratifying. I could see guys like Riley break out in a way he would have never if I didn’t give him the opportunity. All of that felt great, but when you were a wrestler you wanted to stay a wrestler.

So today I was unhappy. A surly, grouchy man behind his desk that was thankful that the office was empty and everything was quiet. I could just be miserable all by my damn self. I could wax poetic and look at our upcoming house show cards. I leaned back against the leather of my chair. My pen in my hand. Even though most of the work was done on the computer, I liked to hold a pen. I liked the feel of it. I could spin it between my fingers as I thought.


“Dad.” A voice said and I looked up. Marjorie stood there. She was not supposed to be here today. She was off. I looked at her. It was hard for me to remember that she was married now. She had just gotten married at Christmas to KC. She was a grown woman and not the little girl that would try to stay up late when I was home from the road just to spend time with me. She’d always wanted to spend time with me. More than Bobby and more than Matilda -- and yes, both my daughter’s names started with M just like my wife and yes I did that on purpose. Marjorie was the oldest. My first-born. As a father, you’re not supposed to have favorites, but you always do. Marjorie was my favorite. She was the most like me, except with the mind of her mother. She was also the one who was here in Denver. Bobby was off stationed in Australia, he met a woman at a beach down there and was enjoying being young and handsome and with a uniform. Matilda had just left to go back to school. She was studying Linguistics at MIT and was loving it. I was happy she was enjoying college. She was sharp as a tack but incredibly quiet. Had always been quiet.

“Dad.” Marjorie said again and I was reminded that I had not answered her. I had gotten lost in my thoughts.

“Yes?” I asked her.

“You got a second?”

This could not be good. “Of course.”

She came into the room. She had not taken her coat off. Her long, dark hair cascaded down her shoulders and she looked at me with the same eyes her mother had. “So. Um.”

“Go ahead. Say it.” I said. Was she leaving? Had she accepted an offer with a TV station? Was Eisen or Packer trying to poach her? Was Hollywood?

“I’m pregnant.” She said and I stared at her. She’d been pregnant before. She had given birth to a beautiful daughter. “I haven’t told Kevin yet.” She said nervously.

Something was off. She shouldn’t be nervous to tell her husband. Excited, sure. But nervous? “Why not?” I asked her and motioned for her to sit down. She did not listen. Stubborn like her mother too.

“When I was pregnant with Cora…” She trailed off for a moment. I didn’t interrupt. She’d find the words with time. “When I was pregnant with Cora, we had talked about that if we had a second kid I would quit working full-time. We thought it might be nice if there were two babies if one of us was home more often than not and I could be at home and write and do some editing while the kids napped.”

“But you don’t want to quit working full-time.”

“No. I don’t. I’m scared that if I tell him he’s going to push me to do that and I don’t want to do that Dad. I love working. I’m good at my job. I’m twenty-eight and I not only direct a television show that is seen by over a million people each week, I direct Pay Per View. I oversee a whole staff. I love coming to work. I don’t want to stop.” She said. She was looking to me for advice. To tell her what to do. Your children never stop needing you. They’ll pretend they don’t need you anymore. They may not need you as often, but every now and then they need mom or dad to help them.

“Is Kevin mean?”

“Of course not.”

“Does he yell?”

“Only when the Braves are losing.”

“Does he love you?”

“More than anything.”

“Then he’s not going to be mad at you. I know you don’t want to disappoint him. We never want to disappoint the person we marry, but Kevin understands you love your job. You’re still a great mom. You’ll continue to be a great mom. He’ll support your decision.” I told her. It was my job to tell her. To remind her that she married a genuinely good guy. He was a nerd, sure, but he had bought her her dream home. He had supported every decision she wanted to make. He wasn’t going to suddenly do an about-face and become an asshole or something.

She breathed a heavy sigh. “I know that you’re right, but I’m still scared. I shouldn’t be scared. I know that. I’m just nervous. We had a plan. I want to change that plan.”

“So talk to him about it. Calmly. Explain why.” I told her in between drinks of my coffee. “He’ll support you. He always does.”

She nodded her head and breathed again. “Thanks for listening dad.”

“Any time, punk.”

She turned and started to leave.

“Margie.” I called after her and she stopped and turned. “Congratulations. I can’t wait to be a grandad again.”

She just laughed and shook her head. “I love you.”

“I love you too, kid.”

Maybe today was not so bad after all.

Welcome back Leion... and if Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime or some other streaming service -- hell, even the WWE Network, wanted to offer me a deal to convert this into a TV show. Well. Then I would!

Glad to be back, there are so many stuff that I have to catch up on, not that I am complaining about it.

Yeah, lets go with Netflix on that one.

A single narrative post in this thread is better than what all of WWE's current crew of writers will ever produce.

Fact.

“The Headhunter” Jeffery Aroma is in the ring with a microphone. He has vanquished every member of Bowen Services that has stood in front of him. He has been on a warpath to right the wrongs he has done in his career and he has added many heads to his trophy case. But there is one head that he is missing. That is the crown jewel in Lisa Bowen’s fiefdom. Spencer Spade. Spade’s suspension is up and Aroma wants him at the Eighth Anniversary Special.



Spade comes out with Lisa Bowen. He looks refreshed from his sixty-day banishment. He lets Jeffery Aroma know that while yes, he has been successful so far, Spencer Spade is a whole different breed of animal. There is a reason that he is the Supreme Star. There is a reason he is the measuring stick for what it means to be a true sports entertainer and not just a professional wrestler. Spencer tells Jeffery that at The Eighth Anniversary show he is going to teach Jeffery Aroma the difference.

Opening Match
Women's New Year's Rumble
20 Woman Rumble
Number One Contender to North American Women’s Championship

In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Nadia Snow won a battle royal in 35:01. The other members of the 'final four' were Pearl Flanders, Jaime Quine and Alicia Strong, with Pearl Flanders being the final elimination. Queen Amazon got the most eliminations over the course of the match; Amber Allen set the record for surviving the longest.


Singles Match
Twenty Minute Time Limit

vs
Dale Kingman versus “Latin Sensation” Leon Pena ©

In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Leon Pena defeated Dale Kingman in 5:47 by pinfall with an Easy Palm Strike. Leon Pena makes defence number 6 of his CWL Television title.
Kingman and Pena don’t seem to click


Quote:


Rick Law is backstage. He came to CWL to administer justice, he came here to be a beacon of light in the darkness that the Fallen was swallowing the CWL. At Christmas Chaos, he knew he was going to beat Torment but Torment did not respect the authority of the official and it got him disqualified. Law mentions that he knows that there is the New Year’s Rumble tonight to name a contender to Torment, but he’s spoken with “Pistol” Pete and at the Eighth Anniversary it will actually be a triple threat match!
B+

Main Event
New Year’s Rumble
Thirty Man Rumble
Number One Contender to North American Heavyweight Championship

In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Clyde Puder won a battle royal in 59:49. The other members of the 'final four' were Casey Valentine, Hollywood Bret Starr and Matty Faith, with Casey Valentine being the final elimination. Primus Allen got the most eliminations over the course of the match; Cameron Vessey set the record for surviving the longest.


Quote:


“The Hillbilly Hammer” Clyde Puder stands in the center of the ring. He has just won the New Year’s Rumble and stamped his ticket in the North American Championship match at the Eighth Anniversary. He looks out at the crowd. They applaud the big man for his effort.

Overall

SWF When Hell Freezes Over 2024
Supreme Wrestling Federation held their annual January Pay Per View extravangza, When Hell Frees Over, on Thursday of Week 2 of January.  This was the first major wrestling Pay Per View of the new year and they did not disappoint.  They drew 30,000 paying fans to the Nevada State Armory in a sell-out, continuing some great momentum for the Eric Eisen led organization.  I was able to be there live in the press box and I'd have to say this was easily a B+ or 4 1/4 star show.

Main Event
Aaron Andrews def Quentin Queen to retain the SWF World Heavyweight Championship - B+

BLZ Bubb def Kirk Jameson - B

Sammy Smoke def Masked Patriot & Frantic Ali to retain the SWF North American Championship - B-

Lassana Makutsi def Phillipe LaGrenier - B

Hustle Muuva def Howlin' Mad Mort - C+

Atlas def Willie Green - C+

Dominic DeSousa def "Intrepid" Ian Identity - B

Apron Dwellers def DaLay & Gonzalez to retain the SWF World Tag Team Championship - B-

Joey Morgan def Scythe - B

Huey Cannonball def Titan by DQ - B
