Cain Justice kicked off CWF Strong by squaring off against Ian Maxwell in singles action. Justice targeted the arm and wrist of Maxwell early and tormented him continually from bell to bell with Ian Maxwell eventually submitting giving Cain Justice another victory.
Three way one-fall singles action was introduced next with Mike Mars, KL3 and Dirty Daddy all in the ring at once. Mars interrupted the wrestling match between KL3 and Dirty, left the ring for a moment and returned to wipe both men out for a pinfall win in under five minutes against two opponents.
Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey entered with the All Star's "Most Honorable" Mace Li to challenge Kool Jay for the CWF Rising Generation League Championship. Jay entered to a roar and the fans remained in his corner cheering him on against Li and his team on the floor at ringside. The popular RGL Champion used his speed and some evasive actions to out-perform the young All Star, pinning him to retain the title.
CWF Worldwide hostess C.L. Party entered to introduce the next bout but never got to begin after being interrupted by "Golden Boy" Aric Andrews, the Holder Of The Golden Ticket. After announcing he would "observe" the next bout to scout both competitors, he took a seat at ringside.
The popular Snooty Foxx hit the ring to take on PWI International Heavyweight Champion "the 1st" Ric Converse in non-title action and the two got serious as soon as the bell rang. Foxx caught Converse in a few of his power moves but Converse resorted to veteran wiles to secure the non-title pinfall victory. Following thei bell, Converse and Snooty Foxx shook hands and exited the arena.
William L. Cross took a house mic and entered the ring to update the fans on the fines and penalties being levied on the All Stars for absconding with the new CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Title Belt at BattleCade X8. The All Stars entered and apparently hadn't realized that the $100 fine was not a one-time penalty, but actually a $100 a DAY penalty, which was already over the $4,000 mark. The refused to surrender the belt and that caused CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee to hit the arena as the All Stars tried to leave through the lobby. Lee threw down the challenge for "belt v. belt" against Roy Wilkins at CWF END OF AN ERA 2018, in a NO ROPES rules match for it all!
"Southern Savior" John Skyler hit the ring next to take on Chet Sterling in singles action. Both men dug in and went to war, on the ground and in the air. In a surprisingly even bout, Skyer delivered punishment only to find Sterling getting back to his feet to start all over again. Sterling delivered some big damage on Skyler late and found himself being tossed off of the turnbuckles from behind by Brad Attitude, who made his escape without garnering the attention of the referee. Skyler took advantage and the three count as the crowd shouted their disapproval.
C.L. Party hit the ring and introduced Faye Jackson, who was there to announce the expansion of women's wreslting in CWF Mid Atlantic. However, before she could explain herself, the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers bull-rushed the ring and sent Party scurrying off to the floor. Jackson left the ring, but not the arena and seconds later "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs hit the entrance. Since the champions were throwing out an open challenge, Biggs asked "Why not take on Beauty & the Beast?" An official entered and the match began.
Aaron Biggs and Faye Jackson started strong on the bully champions and made it known early on that they were a serious threat for the tag team titles. With the crowd firmly behind them Beauty & the Beast soon found Miss Jackson seperated from her corner and the tide turning toward the champions. The Dawsons kicked in the afterburners and retained their titles by pinfall in a hard-fought bout.
Brad Attitude made his way to the ring to challenge the new CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Hurricane" Shane Helms in the CWF STRONG main event. After Helms' entrance, the building and the crowd was simply electric. The bell rang and the two went to work on taking the other to the canvas. Helms unleashed what he referred to in-ring as the "Figure Six Leglock" on Attitude, who could only solve it by forcing the referee to make him break. Attitude refused to be star-struck by the champion and resorted to his usual tactics for the duration, which still led to a successful defense with the Hurricane winning by pinfall to retain the title.
The ring filled with celebrants as CWF Champ Trevor Lee offered Shane Helms a CWF STRONG t-shirt, which he immediately donned. With smiles all around, Helms explained that CWF STRONG wasn't a marketing ploy, but the actual feeling within the locker room and throughout the CWF Family today. And simply stated, I agree.
