Cup is coming into focus. Below are the top eight teams in the
tournament (in no particular order):

Team Fabulous (Frankie Fontaine and Luscious Lance)
L.O.K. (Phil Nitro and Gideon Malice)
Intensity (J.R. Reynolds and Ryan Hunter)
The Carolina Heartthrobs (Corey Duncum and Ty Tyson)
Monsters Inc. (Andrew Anderson and The Human Predator)
f1rST Generation (Victor Andrews and James Anthony)
The Thud Stable (Preston Quinn and Mark Bravura)
Outlaw Inc. (Sam Bass and Ryan Nuzzi)

The 2014 Crockett Cup will be presented by NWA World Wide Wrestling on

Platinum Championship Wrestling News and Notes

Adams Parts Ways with SECW

From Larry Goodman:

Paul Adams has resigned at promoter/booker of Southeastern Championship Wrestling. Adams informed project originator David Marquez of his decision the night before the August 16 taping at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium Ballroom, the company's third taping for FOX 43 in Knoxville.

Adams declined comment on the specifics of behind his departure and said he's assisting Marquez with the transition. Possible replacements mentioned by sources close the situation include Beau James, Devin Driscoll and Bill Behrens. 

Marquez said the announced September 20 SECW taping in Knoxville would take place as scheduled with new leadership at the helm, although Marquez himself will not be present.

In theory, the company has enough footage to air fresh programs through that weekend, but nothing can be taken for granted given the snafus associated with the production and airing of SECW thus far. 

The station mistakenly aired the second episode in the debut time slot on July 26. The second television taping came up way short on footage because the FOX 43 production crew lacked sufficient memory cards.

It should be noted that Adams is running a show at the Nashville Fairgrounds on September 6 featuring a number of SECW stars under the SECW banner. Adams said that event had  received Marquez's blessing.

CWF Mid-Atlanta Report from Gibsonville on August 23

From Jeff Richards:

A Changing of the Guard at Weaver Cup Finals

GIBSONVILLE (NC) -- CWF Mid-Atlantic chose to bypass the high road this past Saturday night (8/23/14), selecting two upset winners to compete in a tournament final. It was the the culmination of this summer's on-going Johnny Weaver Memorial Cup tournament. The show started with a pair of semi-fianl match-ups and concluded six bouts later.

Booker Brad Stutts wove the 2014 tournament version throughout June/July/August and told a story of one young man's vision to stay the course. Brad Attitude, a former WWE developmental talent, was the "chosen one" this season to represent the Weaver legacy. Ex-World Class tv announcer Bill Mercer from near-by Durham, NC was brought in to represent wrestling's legends at the newest Sporatorium incarnation.

Attendance (less than 80 paid at bell time) was down from this past December's sold out "Battlecade" spectacular. The A/C was on, but with so many bodies in and out of the ring there was no way to tell. The CWF Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium is one of the easiest facilties to travel to and get back home from. However, at night's end, every single fan needed a shower just like the wrestlers who were sweating profusely too.

Ohio Valley Wrestling Television Episode 783 Recap

From Jimmie Daniel:

This is a recap of OVW TV Episode 783 that will be aired in Louisville on 8/23 and is available online at http://www.ovwrestling.com/tv/783

Michael Titus is wearing his red suit as he is standing in the back when ref Josh Ashcraft appears. Ashcraft is all giddy because ref Jordan Barker is absent tonight, thus will not be monitoring Ashcraft's performance. Titus wants Ashcraft to exercise his senior official authority and invoke Adam Revolver's rematch clause for tonight so Revolver can get a TV title match against Michael (not PS) Hayes. Ashcraft tells Titus that someone else is scheduled to face Hayes but Titus implores him to get rid of that "loser".

After the show opening, we join OUR OVW Announce Team of "Professor" Dean Hill and "Anchorman" Gilbert Corsey plus OUR OVW Ring Announcer Shannon the Dude has returned! They confirm that Hayes will be defending the TV title later against Revolver so Titus' strategy was successful in that regard.
