Six man tag team action kicked off as the Aftermath's Chet Sterling teamed up with Smith Garrett & Charlie Weston to take on CWF RGL Champion Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea and the Mid Atlantic Outlaws' Louis Moore & Matt Houston. The red-hot RGL champion showed what he was made of much of the bout but the Aftermath's Sterling walked off late leaving it three on two. The Outlaws made short order of the advantage, winning the bout by pinfall and asking for a shot at CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions the Dynasty's Ric Converse & Xsiris.
Singles action was up next with powerful Ty Tyson returning to face Josh Bishop. A fast-paced entertaining battle ensued with the hot streak of Bishop extended via pinfall.
Ryan Nuzzi & Brandon Day were out next for tag team action against the Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Kong" Evan Banks w/"Barefoot" Bobby Joe Neil. In a slobber-knocker the popular Killbillies held their own and pulled off a pinfall win over the veteran Day and impressive newcomer Nuzzi.
Mecha Mercenary was out next with "Surly" Cecil Scott for the "final" showdown between himself and rookie Aaron Biggs who showed up with trainer Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride to watch his back. Mecha found himself fighting a defensive battle, much different than with any other opponent, sliding out of the ring on several occasions to get away from Biggs. Mecha must have gotten mad after the 10 minute mark as he cranked up his momentum and took the rookie to the canvas. Biggs refused to be pinned and turned the tide by rolling up the masked monster for a deciding three count.
First round action in the 2013 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament hit the ring with the Aftermath's Trevor Lee w/Chet Sterling squaring off against Coach Gemini's All Star Goon Squad's Roy Wilkins. Despite promising to wrestle a "clean scientific bout" Coach Gemini still pulled every trick out of his playbook he could muster throughout the bout. The fifteen minute time limit expired without a winner and the fans roared for five more minutes. As it was announced that if there was no winner, both men would be eliminated from the tournament, referee Redd Jones announced both competitors had agreed to five more minutes and re-started the bout. Fifty-five seconds later Trevor Lee had his hand raised as he advances to the Final Four via pinfall. After the match Wilkins seemed a little perturbed by his Coach and Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega & Michael "the Fury" McAllister hit the ring, huddling with Wilkins. All three All Stars then exited the ring together with Gemini staring in horror.
The Aftermath's Ben Tyler was out next for singles action against one half of the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Dynasty's "the 1st" Ric Converse. The former partners went to war with Converse taking Tyler to the canvas and pinning him and exiting to the cheers of the fans. Tyler's partners Trevor Lee & Chet Sterling returned to the ring and the three argued before Lee attacked Tyler elevating Sterling to the #2 position in the new Aftermath.
The CWF Mid Atlantic Television Championship was on the line as challenger Lance Lude hit the ring to battle champion Matthew de Nero in the traditional ten minute television time limit match. After a hard-hitting exchange Lude slid to the floor and exited through the curtain. The referee reluctantly began the ten count and at eight the mysterious Ultra Dragon slithered into the ring and engaged de Nero. After an insane encore of the Ultra Dragon, which ended when the TV Champ accidently knocked the hood off of the Dragon, which coincided with his momentum, which ended at that same moment. The Summer of Matty continues as de Nero defends his title successfully by pinfall over Lude. The two shook hands and raised each other's hands following the decision in a show of good sportsmanship.
CWF NO EXCUSES main event tag team match kicked off after the introductions of Jason Miller & "Lost Cause" Nick Richards and their opponents Donnie Dollar$ & CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Arik Royal. Miller & Richards succeeded in one battle, however, as they pummeled their opponents bell-to-bell and then again after the bell. Royal & Dollar$ won the match by pinfall but had to endure an attempted mugging by their opponents.
