North Davidson High School Gym
High flyer Cedric Alexander, one half of the tag team 7 Oh! 4 was out for the first bout to face off against the Fun Aftermath Guy's Ben Tyler, who arrived at ringside with partner Trevor Lee in tow. Despite the best attempts by his partner on the floor to interfere, Tyler found himself on his back on the canvas by pinfall in a hard-hitting opener for the North Davidson High School Wrestling Team Benefit.
Caprice "Ice" Coleman was out next for non-title singles action against CWF's Rising Generation League Champion Joe Black. A entertaining and high-impact bout followed with the veteran Coleman pulling out a few old tricks to frustrate his young opponent into losing his cool. Black tried to keep up with Coleman, who explained to the fans that he was there to "entertain" them while Black was trying to take his head off with hard-hitting attacks. The veteran's experience allowed him to frustrate and defeat his opponent via pinfall in the center of the ring as the crowd was solidly behind Black.
PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion "Midnight Son" Caleb Konley was up next putting his title on the line against the Fun Aftermath Guys' Trevor Lee, who was shadowed to the ring by partner Ben Tyler. Despite the young Aftermath members attempts at double-teams, Konley demonstrated his abilities by staying one step ahead of his challenger and pesky partner. After letting his anger start to bubble to the surface, Konley forced Lee to submit in the middle of the ring to retain his title.
Three-Way Elimination Tag Title action was up next as the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions Arik Royal & Chiva Kid squared off against the teams of "Arrogant" Aric Andrews & Matt Houston and Fatback Enterprises' Donnie Dollar$ & "Young Gun" Nick Richards in a rare two-fall title bout. Tempers flared early in this one with all three teams going toe-to-toe with each other and several attempts to single out one competitor for a beat down. While the action spilled out onto the floor between the tag champs and Houston and Dollar$, Aric Andrews eliminated Fatback's team by pinfall seventeen minutes into the fight. It took almost another seven minutes before the champions were able to get their hands raised after a tough second fall against Andrews & Houston, which didn't end until both teams were nearly exhausted. Royal & Chiva retain the titles via pinfall.
Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride hit the North Davidson High Gym to square off again against the masked monster Mecha Mercenary, in singles action billed as a "grudge" match. These two individuals intently despise each other and the violence ramped up a notch as the two big men brawled into the bleachers as the referee begged them to return to the ring. McBride got a three-count on the mechanical monster to a roar of the crowd, leaving Mecha exiting angrier than he entered the building.
The main event pitted North Davidson grad referee Robbie Walsh and partner Jason Miller against the Aftermath's "the 1st" Ric Converse & manager William L. Cross in tag team action, resulting from Walsh involving himself in "Aftermath business" in the weeks prior. Converse hit the ring and went nose-to-nose with the familiar thorn in his side, Jason "JBM" Miller before Cross entered and demanded to face Walsh. Walsh climbed through the ropes to a deafening roar and his emotion and the vocal fans helped him step it up a notch. It's not often a rookie referee climbs through the ropes as a main event competitor, but this young man was ready willing and able to face his demons and did just that. Converse slipped to the floor and swiped a steel chair from a fan and clobbered Miller, leaving him face-down on the floor. Then he legally tagged in against Walsh. Walsh did not back down. Despite the two-on-one advantage with his partner down on the floor, the young referee kept on moving forward, dishing out everything he knew how to and his persistence led to a rare clean pinfall win over former AWA World Heavyweight Champion Converse.
