This past weekend, Carolina Wrestling Federation (CWF) Mid Atlantic held the Johnny Weaver Cup tournament and this year’s had huge implications. CWF Mid Atlantic would be crowning a new CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion, after the previous champion, Trevor Lee, vacated the title after signing with WWE and heading to NXT (where he now competes as Cameron Grimes). In the tournament finals, it was Arik Royal who defeated Roy Wilkins to earn his second Heavyweight title and become the face of CWF Mid Atlantic once again.
Naw. I'm the CHAMP!
