CWF Night of the Grudge Matches kicked off with six-man tag team action pitting Smith & Weston with the All Star's "Assassin" Ray Kandrack to take on the fan favorite Killbillies "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Kong" Evan Banks and "New Era" Jimmy Parker. Things rolled along well for Smith & Weston for the first six minutes of the bout, with partner Kandrack watching from the bleachers. When the tide turned toward the Killbillies/Parker team, Kandrack returned to the ring apron. When Kandrack was finally tagged in, he turned his team's fortunes with his straight-ahead juggernaut attack style. Kandrack led his team to a pinfall win, let Parker know he refuses to back down too, and exited the arena to the Killbillies having a vocal disagreement in the squared circle.
CWF's Rising Generation League Champion, the Aftermath's Chet Sterling, was out next to face Lance Lude in Ultra-J Crown singles action. The two kicked it into overdrive at the opening bell, with the veteran Lude pulling off an impressive submission win over the red-hot Sterling with his Christo finisher.
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Rage & the Machine's Michael McAllister & Mecha Mercenary hit the ring to defend their titles against three challenging teams in a rare Tag Title Gauntlet match, and finished off their first challengers "One Man Boy Band" Roo-D Lewis & MC 1-2-3 by pinfall in under two minutes. The new team of Ty Tyson & the "Michigan Assassin" Bobby Wohlfert were up next, testing the champions, who pulled off a pinfall win with a hand full of tights. Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea & Aaron Biggs hit the ring next, taking it to the champions to the edge until a run-in by "Lost Cause" Nick Richards & Jason Miller cost them their title opportunity with the champions winning by pinfall.
CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Chase Dakota was out next with his Box of Misery, to draw the name of the night's challenger for his title. After a couple of minutes of anxious waiting, Dynasty's Brad Attitude stepped through the curtains with an adult beverage in his hand. He asked to have his music played a second time as he taped for the match and finally stepped through the ropes for his unexpected title shot. Dakota wrestled Attitude to a ten-minute draw and despite the chant for "Five More Minutes" Dakota chose not to compete any longer than required by rule.
"Dirty" Zane Dawson was allowed to enter through the front door of the arena, made his way to the ring as opponent Adam Page made his ring entrance. The two brawled. The two fought. The two frustrated each other and the two never backed down. Dawson got one of his fondest wishes granted the moment he defeated Page, a guaranteed shot at the PWI International Heavyweight Champion Shane "Hurricane" Helms in the near future!
Dyasty's "the 1st" Ric Converse w/Brad Attitude had his hands full with the All Star's Walter Eaton w/Coach Gemini in singles action, as the familiar foes fought tooth and nail. Attitude tackled Eaton as he attempted to use brass knuckles in the match and was attacked by All Stars Roy Wilkins & "Assassin" Ray Kandrack as well as the Coach and Eaton. Chase Dakota made his way to the ring, knocked Eaton out cold with a running knee, allowing Converse to seal the deal via pinfall and exited as Attitude was still being beat down by the All Stars.
Former Heavyweight Champ "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel returned to the CWF ring to take on "El Jefe" Manny Garcia in CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Contenders action. Edsel took down his opponent by pinfall in under ten minutes and was joined in the ring by CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal, who did commentary on the bout from ringside. Edsel challenged Royal, who accepted to face him on CWF END OF AN ERA 2014 on Saturday February 15th. Edsel is the longest-reigning heavyweight champion in the company's fifteen year history, but a loss to Royal at End Of An Era would allow Royal to surpass his record.
To end a feud, one expects some sort of extreme effort. One doesn't always expect to see two men chained together by a steel chain attached to each man's throat with dog collars. One doesn't expect to see an already violent bout turn ugly when a dozen or so steel chairs, a half million thumbtacks and one particularly ugly barbed wire covered baseball bat are introduced into the mix. "Lost Cause" Nick Richards found himself suddenly alone, yet not alone, as he discovered that Donnie Dollar$, with an assist from Chris Lea & Aaron Biggs, had handcuffed his partner Jason Miller to the corner turnbuckle. This bout became brutal, got bloody and then took a turn for the worse as both men were opened up and losing a great deal of blood. Dollar$ got the evening's final duke with a pinfall win over his turncoat former championship tag partner and Miller was still handcuffed to the ring as fans were asked to exit the Sportatorium.
