"The 2007 Tournament Champion "Handsome" Mitch Connor entered to present the trophy to the winner, as the bloodied competitor got his breath. Munkey asked for a final ten bell salute for the namesake of the tournament, Johnny Weaver, who passed away earlier this year. Brass Munkey then took to the floor with the Cup, posing for photos and greeting well-wishers as the fans began to rise to exit."
"Brass Munkey did a classy thing at the end and did not talk about himself and what he was going to do with his win. Instead, he stood the trophy in the middle of the ring and talked about Johnny and the tradition of wrestling. Many of us in the back welled up and wrestlers surrounded the ring.
Johnny was a good man and always did well and spoke well about us for our "wrestling". Please tell his family we wish them well and you, them and all the staff at the Gateway are always welcome at CWF."
