Rob McBride (right) and Scott Eiland pose with the AIWF Mid Atlantic Championship belt. McBride defends the belt for the first time October 6 in Thomasville, the same town in which he won the belt six weeks ago.

Six weeks after a stellar showing at Thomasville High School’s Back to School Bash, the AIWF (Allied Independent Wrestling Federations) Mid Atlantic returns to Thomasville to a for a night of wrestling action featuring two of the most well-known grapplers in the region, both of whom hold regional championships. And BOTH men will be putting their titles on the line.

New AIWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight champion Rob McBride headlines tonight’s action, where he will defend the belt for the first time since defeating Scrapyard Dog in August. “The Boogiewoogieman,” as he is known to his legion of fans, will face the Pure Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Matt Houston, who won his belt by defeating Jason Blade in a disputed two-out-of-three falls match two weeks earlier in Providence, NC. The two men booked this match during McBride’s appearance on the “This Week In Wrestling” podcast, where the rivals’ escalating war of words ended in fisticuffs.

The two men are no strangers to one another; McBride’s long feud with Rick Deezel and the Old School Mafia has often included Houston. Last March, Houston hit McBride with an AIWF championship belt during McBride’s appearance on the Fox 8 Morning News. McBride often refers to Houston as “Chia Pet,” referring to Houston’s close-shaved crew cut hair. Their long careers in the independent ranks have often found the two of them on opposite sides of the ring; now that both men have gold, expect the feud to become even more heated.

In addition, former AIWF-Mid Atlantic champ Scrapyard Dog will face up-and-coming superstar Court Montgomery in a grudge match. Montgomery nearly defeated Houston twice in September for the Pure Pro Wrestling belt only to have Scrap’s interference ultimately cost him the title. After a particularly brutal two-on-one attack Sept 24 that left Montgomery unconscious, Court is determined to avenge the humiliation tonight in Thomasville.

Also scheduled to appear: AIWF World Champion Louis Moore, AIWF Mid Atlantic tag team champions Team Throwdown, former NWA legend “Mr. Number One” George South, EWA Jr. Heavyweight Champion Baron Bullard, local favorite son “Terrific Tony” Benge, and more. In addition, there will be a special guest appearance from former Jim Crockett Promotions broadcasting legend Rich Landrum!

This event will take place at Be A Sport Gym in Thomasville at 309 Etta Lane, directly behind Hasty Elementary School. The opening bell is at 730PM, with doors opening at 630pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.
