Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
"The 1st" Ric Converse and manager William L. Cross hit the ring following the National Anthem and Converse proceeded to explain that he had better things to do and was not even staying for the Homecoming event, exiting the ring through the front door.
Zane & Dave Dawson made their debut with CWF Mid Atlantic taking on the BlackSmith, the team of CWF RGL Champion Joe Black & Matt Smith in tag team action. A proverbial slobber-knocker erupted with all four men beating each other like they were owed money, with the physically larger Dawsons breaking out some solid tag team punishment. Their debut ended on a sour note as BlackSmith pulled off the pinfall win to help their position for a possible future shot at the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Titles.
"Assassin" Ray Kandrack and Bobby Wohlfert once again renewed hostilities, this time in a Last Man Standing match, where the only way to win is have your opponent unable to answer the referee's ten count. This time the battle remained extremely violent as both men let their personal dislike for each other boil to the surface, forcing the referee to make numerous counts as each competitor found themselves trying to get up off of the canvas. Kandrack hit Wohlfert with a vicious clothesline, turning the Marine almost inside out, pulled him up before the ten count and beat on him some more. Kandrack finally felt he'd made his point, allowing the referee to make the count while standing in the corner watching with a smile on his face.
The first-ever live Killbillies Korral saw the Killbillies interview former Tag Champ and former Commissioner "Handsome" Mitch Connor, complete with the Killbillie Girls Biscuits & Gravy. Bobby Joe Neil challenged Connor to a dance-off, with both men busting a move in the ring to the vocal delight of the packed house.
The Port City Kings' K.C. McKnight & Charlie Dreamer returned to CWF Mid Atlantic to take on the Fun Aftermath Guys Trevor Lee & Ben Tyler with "William L. Cross' gentleman's gentleman" Chet. The first quarter of the bout the Fun Aftermath Guys did their best to stay out of the grasp of the Kings before finally locking up and exchanging pleasantries with the veterans in the middle of the ring. Things didn't work out right at first, but the Aftermath team began to gain confidence as they started doing some damage of their own. McKnight and Dreamer didn't allow that to continue, finally taking firm control of the bout and finishing off the cocky young team of Lee & Tyler by pinfall.
No Disqualification Six Man Texas Tornado action was up next pitting Fatback Enterprises' TV Champion Donnie Dollar$, "Young Gun" Nick Richards & CWF Commissioner "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel against Chase Dakota, "Surly" Cecil Scott & Mecha Mercenary, with all six men legally battling at the same time. Plunder was introduced, including a steel garbage can and a large baking pan, and metal was being bounced off of each competitor's craniums at some point in the bout. As the Fatback team began to gain an advantage, the Dawsons hit the ring, attacking manager Brad Stutts and dragging him into the ring. The Port City Kings rushed to Fatback's aid, finally sending the Dawsons back out of the arena as TV Champion Dollar$ finished the bout by pinning Dakota. After the teams made their way out of the arena, Dakota, who remained flat on his back on the concrete floor was approached by the bizarre Solomon Spades, who pulled him into the ring, laughed and turned his back on the confused Dakota. Spades turned and choked Dakota, seconds later releasing his grip and exiting the ring smiling with Dakota wondering what had just happened.
A Black Guy & A Little Goat's Arik Royal & Chiva Kid were up after intermission to defend the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team titles against the undefeated team of the Killbillies "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Tonk" Evan Banks with manager Bobby Jo Neil. A high-flying and hard-hitting battle ensued with Chiva showing his disregard for gravity and Royal taking liberties with the Killbillies manager's sombrero. Celebrating Cinco de Mayo and defending the tag titles were not meant to happen simultaneously, and a tag title change soon followed after the Aftermath's manager William L. Cross ran to the ring and nailed Royal with his steel baton, allowing a solid pinfall win with Royal nearly unconscious in the ring.
Scheduled as Six On Six Elimination for the Naming Rights of the New Building, Coach Gemini introduced his team consisting of himself, "Assassin" Ray Kandrack, Walter Eaton, Roy Wilkins (who wrestled with his arm in a sling), Michael "the Fury" McAllister, "Prince of Heat" Court Montgomery, then introduced a SEVENTH man, "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega "to round out his All Star team". CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Adam Page answered with his own squad of Jason Blade, Jason Miller, Devin Dalton, "Box Office Draw" Mikael Yamaha & Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride. As the referee was ready to ring the bell for seven on six action, the entrance music for the masked Kamakazi Kid played, and he hit the arena to even the odds for the champion. Coach Gemini took the house mic and told Page that he should be a "fighting champion" and suggested that a man would put the title on the line, with the last man left becoming the new champion. Page agreed instantly saying that he'd walk through all seven of the All Stars himself for the title and the referee called for the bell for seven on seven elimination action with the Mid Atlantic's biggest title up for grabs. Near the eighteen minute mark of the bout, All Star Montgomery was the first man eliminated, followed by Jason Miller, Jason Blade and McAllister, keeping the match even numbers-wise. Dalton was the next man out and moments after removing his sling, Wilkins was sent to the locker room. Yamaha was gone next, Ortega about 20 seconds later and Coach Gemini himself moments later. McBride was eliminated before CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Adam Page found himself eliminated and sent to the locker room, leaving only Kandrack, Eaton & Kazi to fight it out for the title. Kandrack was sent to the locker room holding his head and a brutal war flared up between Eaton & the masked star. It took another seven minutes of fighting before Kamakazi Kid was able to finally finish off the violent former champion Eaton to win the title.
