The All Stars' angry "Assassin" Ray Kandrack was out first to kick off CWF HOSTILE INTENTIONS for grudge action against the "Michigan Assassin" Bobby Wohlfert. A slugfest ensued with both men trying to clean each other's clocks both inside of the squared circle, on the floor at ringside and in the first few rows of seats. Kandrack kicked in the afterburners and began pounding Wohlfert into the canvas, but the crafty former Mid Atlantic Tag Champ saw an opportunity and skinned the cat to roll up the All Stars MVP for the pinfall win.
Three way singles action with one fall was up next as the All Stars' Michael "the Fury" McAllister entered the ring dancing. Opponent "Surly" Cecil Scott was soon infected with Boogie Fever and even tried to convince third opponent Jason Miller to bust a move. Then an almost two-on-one affair ensued with Miller taking the brunt of both McAllister and Scott before they finally turned on each other allowing Miller to get back into the bout. As all three battled, Miller rolled up McAllister for the pin before Scott could break the referee's count.
Aftermath manager William L. Cross led out the Fun Aftermath Guys Trevor Lee & Ben Tyler for tag team action against the team of "Man Scout" Jake Manning & $5 Wrestling Champion Freight Train. A wild and crazy bout broke out with the Aftermath team attempting to keep the big Freight Train on the ring apron, which only worked to an extent. The big DVD star showed the Burlington fans his arsenal and helped his partner Manning end the bout with both of the Fun Aftermath Guys shoulders pinned to the canvas.
Cecil Scott followed the masked Mecha Mercenary to the ring for the next bout, where his charge was getting another shot at Donnie Dollar$' CWF Mid Atlantic Television Title. Manager Brad Stutts spent most of the wild ten minute brawl yelling instructions and imploring the referee to keep Cecil Scott's hands off of his TV Champion, mostly to no avail. Dollar$ refused to stay on the canvas after several Mecha pin attempts and both men were still in each other's faces as the traditional ten minute television time limit expired.
Tag team action hit the ring as former CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions All Stars Roy Wilkins & Walter Eaton w/Michael "the Fury" McAllister entered to face CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Adam Page & CWF RGL Champion Joe Black. Violence became the word of the day as all four men went barbarian on each other, kicking, punching and elbowing every chance they could. The All Stars went the extra mile, grabbing a steel chair and pounding their opponents before allowing the referee to make the three-count for the win.
During intermission, "Surly" Cecil Scott went to the ring with a steel chair, climbed into the squared circle and sat down. After intermission, Scott refused to leave, stating he was simply "Occupying CWF Mid Atlantic" and wouldn't leave until Commissioner Edsel heard his grievance. Edsel made his way to the ring after a few moments and flat denied Scott's demand for Mecha Mercenary to get another shot at the TV Title, telling him that it's someone else's turn to challenge for the belt. Mecha roared through the entrance with security and trainees draped all over him, soon joined by ring officials who battled to keep the monster out of the ring as Edsel took the house mic and announced he was "tired of the Commish job" and that he was ready to return as a competitor. Taking the calendar in consideration, Edsel ordered Miller to produce both Mecha Mercenary and Chase Dakota for six man tag team action on Saturday May 5th to face Fatback Enterprises' Donnie Dollar$, "Young Gun" Nick Richards and the return of "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel!
One half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions, Chiva Kid, was up next to face off against former CWF Tag Champion "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega in singles action. A lucha-inspired event ensued with a great deal of fluid chain wrestling, moves and counter-moves and catch-as-catch-can wrestling displayed inside and outside of the ring. The veteran Ortega, who has just recently returned to competition from a sabbatical, seemed to have his head in the bout from bell to bell but was pinned by the masked Chiva Kid, perhaps not quite up to full speed in his return to the ring.
The Killbillies Evan Banks & Aric Andrews were led to the ring by manager Bobby Jo Neil to face off against the tag team of "Box Office Draw" Mikael Yamaha & "Young Gun" Nick Richards with manager Brad Stutts. A fairly even bout broke out with both teams using every advantage available to them and the Virginia Killbillies using some that weren't quite kosher. All four men got in their shots on their opponents and Stutts had his hands full with the verbal jabs of Jo Neil on the floor at ringside. Violence continued to escalate and the Killbillies were able to pull off the pinfall win to remain the only team in CWF Mid Atlantic without a loss in 2012.
Aftermath manager William L. Cross escorted "the 1st" Ric Converse to the ring for main event singles action against one half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champions, Arik Royal. Big Arik took the fight serious but with every step he took forward, Converse forced him to step back or aside in a hard-hitting dance of pain which would determine who would face the CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion for the title on May 12th in Greensboro NC. The crafty former World Champion was taken to the extremes as Royal showed how much heart he has by refusing to succumb to the relentless attack, but with a couple of run-ins to add to the flavor, Converse pinned Royal to fight for a possible seventh Mid Atlantic Title run. Champion Adam Page, who was doing commentary, came to the ring and shoved Converse, letting him know he wasn't backing down for anyone. However, All Star Walter Eaton chose that time to hit the ring and KO Page flat on the canvas, only to get in the face of Converse. Eaton has a title shot against Page in Burlington on April 21 and feels he will be the champion when Converse gets his title shot.
