The Rose Room: Felicia Rose welcomed injured star Riley Shepard, who said her ACL was on the mend, and expected to return in March. Shepard declared that she was ready for absolutely anyone, but had her eye on Rogue World Champion Layna Lennox in particular.
General Keisel def. “Wild Irish” Riley Rose with a Death Star Trash Compactor (package piledriver).
ACW Cruiserweight Championship Fatal 4-Way (no disqualifications, no count-outs): Commissioner Max Tempest surprised competitors Leo Sweet, Jack Hershey, and champion Wisly Jaccinor by adding infamous former WWE star James Ellsworth to the match at the last possible moment. Nevertheless, and true to form, Jaccinor used his briefcase as a weapon in this no-DQ format to retain.
Sarin Fawst def. Bobby Kruger by pin fall. Kruger, concussed by repeated Fawst headbutts two weeks prior, was well on his way to avenging that prior loss until he flattened his own shoulders to the mat while applying a rear naked choke to Fawst. The referee counted a fall for Sarin, but Bobby protested that his maniacal opponent had tapped – he felt it.
Charlie Kruel def. Megan Mason.
J Savage def. Mr. Chow.
ACW Tri-State Championship: Scotty Jeffreys (c) def. Bones. The two brawled post-match yet again, and Commissioner Max Tempest proposed a Texas Bullrope Match to settle matters in January.
Stockade def. Stan Stylez after a bizarre match involving Stan’s shakeweight, some whipped cream, and a double-arm DDT from the Deathmatch Asgardian.
Jamie Senegal def. Percy Drews with a spinning heel kick. In an incredibly strange turn, Senegal produced a bottle of indeterminate liquor mid-match and guzzled it, then forced more than a healthy swig down the throat of his opponent as well. Field sobriety tests were not administered, but both athletes seemed to be able to leave the ring under their own power.
ACW Heavyweight Championship: Dame (c) def. Andy Header with a Sliced Bread #2.
Rogue World Championship: Layna Lennox (c) def. Tess Valentine with a rollup (full of tights). Afterward, Lennox and her manager Gillette put the boots to the three-time former Rogue Champion, Valentine, only to meet an irate Riley Shepard, who would send them packing.
After the formal end to the event, both Tess Valentine and senior referee Zach Carlucci retired in the ring, surrounded by wrestlers, staff, and fans.
Doomsday in Stevens – Stevens, PA – December 14th, 2019

ACW Tri-State Championship: Bones def. Scotty Jeffreys (c) via count-out.
Trixie Tash def. Tess Valentine by submission (Trixie Trap). Rogue World Champion Layna Lennox caused a distraction ringside during the match which muddied the purity of the contest, particularly for Valentine.
The Rose Room: Hostess Felicia Rose invited Twisted Tate, banned from the promotion and retired due to a match stipulation, to present evidence that he should not have lost the match that led to his current state. Using ACW footage, Tate showed that during the tag team contest at Absolution, James Frazier was in fact not the legal man when Dame submitted to his Cobra Clutch, throwing the match to spite Tate. Commissioner Max Tempest, who gained more power in Tate’s absence, begrudgingly revoked Tate’s retirement and banishment, but the new power structure of Atomic and Rogue is left unclear in the wake of this development.
Sarin Fawst (w/ Coach Dan) def. Bobby Kruger by referee stoppage. Fawst punished the veteran Kruger with headbutts until rookie official Axl Fox chose to stop the contest, the safety of the athletes foremost in his mind.
Special Challenge Match (catchweight): Stockade def. J Savage. In this bizarre mismatch, “Deathmatch Asgardian” Stockade punished his diminutive tormentor Savage for his repeated attacks using a replica Mjolnir hammer. Although Savage put up a spirited fight, the end was never in doubt. Stockade, having pinned his opponent following a brutal mafia kick, announced that Savage had earned his respect.
Erica Leigh def. Veda Scott after a Lunar Landing.
ACW Cruiserweight Championship: Romeo Castillo (MERC) def. Wisly Jaccinor (c) (w/ Coach Dan) by disqualification. Jaccinor handcuffed Castillo to the second rope and assaulted him with his courier’s briefcase, and the referee was forced to make the obvious call.
Rogue World Championship: Layna Lennox (w/ Gillette) (c) def. Vita Von Starr by submission with a Starbreaker (double underhook to Butterfly Lock). Gillette, the self-styled “MILF” of ACW and Rogue, made her presence felt at ringside, distracting the referee as Lennox blasted her opponent in the head with the Rogue title belt itself, leading to a win.
ACW Heavyweight Championship (falls count anywhere): Dame (c) def. Breaux Keller with a Sliced Bread #2.

Vita Von Starr def. Corinne Mink.
Rogue World Championship: Layna Lennox (c) def. Kaci Dillon.
Jamie Senegal def. Jack Hershey.
Funnybone def. Stockade.
ACW Heavyweight Championship: Dame (c) def. Breaux Keller. During the match, the ring’s top rope snapped, adding confusion to the battlefield. Keller knocked out referee Carlucci unintentionally during just one such moment of confusion, and Dame seized that moment to attack Keller with the title belt, leading to a pin fall. Commissioner Max Tempest announced that he was unsatisfied with the circumstances of this match, and that the two rivals would have to face off yet again in December – falls count anywhere.
Monster Mash Ball – Reading, PA – October 25th, 2019
Felicia Rose of The Screw podcast fame attempted to interview new Heavyweight Champion Dame in the ring, but Dame posed wordlessly, refusing to respond to questions. When Rose got a little too incisive with the champion, he berated her, but Felicia hinted that she had something in store for him later in the evening.
ACW Tri-State Championship: Sarin Fawst (c) (w/ Coach Marx) def. Scotty Jeffreys. Jeffreys had recovered enough from previous offense to put a foot on the ropes during Fawst’s pin attempt, but the three count came down regardless. Commissioner Max Tempest told Jeffreys that if he chose to challenge Fawst yet again, he could do so, but his career would be on the line.
Victor Benjamin (w/ Lady Frost) def. Stockade.
Kaci Dillon def. Ashley America.
Facade def. Andy Header.
Rogue World Championship: Layna Lennox (c) (w/ Gillette) def. Dani Mo and Lady Frost.
ACW Heavyweight Championship cage match: Dame Smith (c) def. Breaux Keller. Felicia Rose made good on her threat from earlier in the evening, as she escorted a man dressed as Halloween icon Michael Myers to the ring, who turned out to be Twisted Tate. Banned from ACW, Tate nevertheless attacked both Dame and Keller, and escaped before officials could call security to eject him. In the final moments of the match, Keller began inching toward the open cage door, only to find that Dame had leapt over him and through the door to the floor, winning the match.

Layna Lennox def. Amanda Rodriguez and Erica Leigh. The irrepressible Lee Sweigart commended the efforts of the athletes, and said we’d see all three again next month.

Stockade def. Dame Smith with a spear.
ACW Heavyweight Championship Match — originally scheduled as James Frazier (c) vs. Breaux Keller. Twisted Tate assaulted Frazier before the contest’s opening bell, and produced a contract for a title shot from the very briefcase he’d just used to lay out the sometimes-commentator. Tate briefly became the ACW Heavyweight Champion once again, only to be surprised by the contest’s scheduled challenger, Breaux Keller, who quickly defeated his former mentor to seize the title. Following this quick succession of champions, Dame Smith assaulted Keller, saying he was sick of the “straight poster boy”, and declaring that he’d “sold his soul” to Twisted Tate. Standing over Keller and Frazier, Tate challenged them to a tag team contest against himself and Dame for next month’s event, with the stipulation that should either Breaux or James be pinned, the Heavyweight Championship would fall to Tate.

Mr. Chow def. J Savage with a Yakuza Kick.
Killhart was forced to relinquish his ACW Tri-State Championship due to a torn pectoral muscle and subsequent surgery which will prevent him from competing for some months. The next contest, Scotty Jeffreys vs. Sarin Fawst, was then declared to be for the vacated title. Ultimately, Scotty defeated the ever more dangerous rookie with a rope-walk-to-Blockbuster combination, becoming the Tri-State Champion once again after a long, barren stretch.
The Sandman def. Gillberg with a rollup. The ECW icon somehow convinced Gillberg that the two of them should pair up at the bar inside the hosting venue, Reverb, and enjoy some beers with the fans, but as soon as Gillberg consented, Sandman rolled the unsuspecting Gill up for a quick three. In the end, they drank the aforementioned beers anyway.
Tess Valentine def. Kasey Catal with Cradle Shock. She will now face Erica Leigh in a steel cage on August 24th for the Rogue World Championship!
Announcer Joel Oresky and fearsome rookie Bones began what promised to be a long, self-centered series of speeches, only to be interrupted by a brigade of the midget wrestlers who had competed earlier in the evening. Shovelhead Chuck went on to win an impromptu battle royal (participants: Mr. Chow, “Cowboy” Kidd Quick, J Savage, Shovelhead Chuck, and Bones), and Mr. Chow proposed a permanent midget wrestling division inside Atomic Championship Wrestling.
ACW Heavyweight Championship Match: James Frazier def. Twisted Tate (c) with a rollup — new champion! The play-by-play commentator, a former wrestler in his younger days, looked surprisingly game in a short contest. Following the pinfall, a furious Tate blasted the unlikely new champion with a Shining Wizard, only to be confronted by the members of the midget roster, who aided a confused Frazier.
“Playboy” Bob Starr and “Stone Cold” Chad Austin def. BLKOUT (Ruckus and Robbie Illuminati). ACW Hall of Famer and referee Tonya Stevens gave Robbie Illuminati a Stone Cold Stunner mid-match during a heated argument with the aggressive Philadelphia native.

Dark: Sarin Fawst def. Mr. Chow via pin fall after a rack bomb.
Brian Keisel def. Clutch Adams after a rollup.
Commissioner Lee Sweigart and Heavyweight Champion Twisted Tate took a moment to berate their audience, and went so far as to fire “Carolina” Jim, substituting a smug, outspoken Joel Oresky for the well-liked ring announcer. Play-by-play announcer James Frazier left his desk to confront Tate about his recent behavior, and revealed that the shadowy board of directors of ACW and Rogue had made him co-commissioner for the evening. He declared that with what little power he’d been given, he could say that “Carolina” Jim was not fired, and with that, relinquished the microphone to Jim so that the evening could continue.
BJ Walker def. Robbie Illuminati after fellow BLKOUT member Ruckus hit Illuminati with Walker’s multi-promotional championship briefcase, leading to a W for Walker.
Killhart Appreciation Night unfolded much as expected, with the Tri-State champion thanking only himself for all his recent success. He went out of his way to thank his “mentor” and “best friend” Scotty Jeffreys, and invite the “King of Controversy” into the ring, but Jeffreys quickly sickened of Killhart, and — whether through jealousy or indignation — attacked the young champion. The two brawled through the room, with Killhart getting the upper hand. Jeffreys vowed to get even.
ACW Cruiserweight Championship Match: Jack Hershey def. Bones (c) — new champion! Following the match, Twisted Tate arrived to attack Hershey yet again. James Frazier confronted Tate in the ring, and a shove turned into a brawl. After a low blow, Tate told a beaten-down Frazier that he’d face him one-on-one next month, and had no fear of dying in the ring if necessary.

ACW 19th Anniversary: One More Step Toward the Grave – Denver, PA – May 18th, 2019
Brittany Blake def. Kaci Dillon.
Outspoken competitor BJ Walker came out with his newly-won Central Pennsylvania Money in the Bank briefcase to let the fans know that he hadn’t yet decided which promotion’s championship he’d decided to use it on, but that he was ready to take anyone at all to Table 3 of the Ass-Whippin’ Buffet.
Commissioner Lee Sweigart said a few words to the audience explaining his recent actions, and then introduced Twisted Tate, who said he’d chosen Teddy Hart to defend his ACW Heavyweight against fellow conspirator Mr. Grim. Teddy, as always, had kind words for the audience, but didn’t seem to be aware of recent events concerning Tate’s refusal to defend his own championship. Taking Tate’s request as a friendly favor, Teddy consented to wrestle Mr. Grim in Tate’s place later on.

“The Tenacious” Trixie Tash gor the best of newcomer Dani Deville (who was replacing the injured Max) via Missile Drop Kick.
As referee Zack Carlucci was down, Frankie Malibu came to the help of Wisly Jaccinor, only for everyone to be attacked by Sarin Faust. Getting back to his senses, Carlucci then saw Faust hitting Jaccinor, therefore disqualifying Hershey and giving a win by DQ to Wisly.
Before the next match started, Commissioner Lee Sweigart told Kimber Lee and Tess Valentine that the winner of the match would get an open contract to face the Rogue World Champion at any time of their choosing. Tess Valentine got the best of Lee when she reversed a pin fall after a top rope Swanton giver her access to the very important briefcase.
Queen Aminata knocked out Lady Frost with a devastating Yakuza Kick to the face to get the 1-2-3.
Commissioner Lee Sweigart came at ringside to address him “quitting” at the last show as he explained he just couldn’t deal with Scotty Jeffreys and Killhart anymore. However, he explained that because of his passion, he was going nowhere. He then proceeded to invite Bobby Kruger out. Even if Kruger had been hated for years by all, Sweigart mentioned that Bobby had been homeless and lost his father in the past few months. However, his love for professional wrestling was always there. As the crowd rallied behind Bobby to cheer him up, Jeffreys and Killhart came out to laugh at him, calling him a cry baby. Pissed off, Lee ordered a match between the Killhart/ Jeffreys tandem against Bobby Kruger and the commissioner’s special guest… None other than Robbie E!!
Robbie E and Bobby Kruger defeated “Hot Shot” Scotty Jeffreys and Killhart with a DDT from Robbie and a Splash from Bobby on Jeffreys! Bobby then grabbed the Tri-State Championship telling the crowd he wanted it!
ACW Heavyweight Champion Breaux Keller retained his championship against Dame Smith with his Falcon Arrow. Smith was first distracted by the presence of General Keisel at ringside which Keller didn’t notice. Holding the championship and grabbing Smith by the hair, Keisel told both wrestlers that he should be the champion. Breaux Super Kicked the General and Smith put him down with a Calf kick. Dame then gave the championship to Keller as a sign of respect.
A knee to the back from Deppen, a Shining Wizard from Twisted Tate and a running kick to the face of Mason Martin from Tony Deppen gave them the win over Martin and his partner Matt Wylde.
Despite being visibly hurt by all the damage Thunder Rosa had afflicted on her back, LuFisto rolled up La Mera Mera with a hand full of tights to retain her Rogue World Champion. She shook Rosa’s hand after the match only to attack her again and blaming her for her pain. As LuFisto was arguing with Rosa, Tess Valentine ran in, cashed in her open contract and hit her Fireman’s Carry Driver to get the pin fall over LuFisto and become for the second time in her career, the Rogue World Champion!
Victor Benjamin and Lady Frost came out and address the fact that ACW Cruiserweight Champion Lance Anoa’i had failed to appear because he is scared of the Savage Gentleman. With the blessing of Commissioner Sweigart, Dame Smith came out and mentioned that, he might not have been able to win Breaux’s championship, so her was trying for the ACW Cruiserweight now and that he would bring this one home… Which he did after Lady Frost mistakenly blew snow in Benjamin’s face which gave Smith the opportunity to knock him out with an Inziguri to become the new ACW Cruiserweight Champion!!
