Mid Atlantic Sportatorium
CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack and Coach Gemini kicked off the evening's in-ring festivities with a few choice words for the area competition before the 2011 Weaver Cup winner Arik Royal hit the ring to take on "Surly" Cecil Scott w/Mecha Mercenary in Quarterfinal action in the 2012 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament. Royal found himself fighting both men the entire bout, with the masked monster reaching through the ropes every opportunity to get a shot in, and finally turned the tides on both men, leveling them and moving on to "defend" the Weaver Cup Championship.
With a new initiative initiated by PWI International to rank regional challengers for the PWI International Ultra-J Crown Championship, Chase Dakota was lead to the ring to face off against Robyn Golphyn for the #5 Challenger's position. Both men went vertical and high-impact as the bizarre Solomon Spades observed from the floor at ringside, with Dakota pulling off the win and becoming an officially-recognized challenger for Eddie Edwards' PWI Ultra-J Crown Championship.
Fun Aftermath Guy Ben Tyler was out next to battle the relentless Rising Generation League Champion Joe Black. The two familiar foes got personal in the opening moments of the bout and let their anger boil over, with each man taking incredibly painful attacks from the other and then dishing out more of their own. Tyler made his case to remain an active member of the Aftermath, finally securing his first championship with a pinfall win over an irate Joe Black, who had to be held back to keep him from attacking the new champion.
Arena Chicks singles action was up next with special guest referee Shelly Martinez making her way to the ring, followed by the lovely Reby Sky and Arena Chicks CEO Amber O'Neal. Martinez acknowledged publicly that she has indeed accepted the job as Commissioner of Arena Chicks Wrestling and would act as ring official in both Arena Chicks bouts on the evening's card. Sky and O'Neal displayed a fast and somewhat furious-paced bout of offensive streaks as they went toe-to-toe, with Sky showing off her growing wrestling aresenal. O'Neal took an advantage in the bout, appeared on the verge of a victory, only to see it stolen away in three seconds by the streaking Reby Sky.
Fun Aftermath Guy Trevor Lee was up next to face one half of 7 Oh! 4 Cedric Alexander in Quarterfinal Weaver Cup action. The two high-flyers showed they could dish out the pain in large portions and take anything their opponent could offer. Lee also seemed to cement his spot in the Aftermath with his advancing into the Final Four with a surprising upset win over Alexander.
Mecha Mercenary and "Surly" Cecil Scott were out next with the house mic, calling out Coach Gemini and CWF Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack. Answering the call, the Coach and Champion fulfilled their end of their deal with the Scott/Mercenary duo, with Kandrack handing Mecha Mercenary his most prized possession, the mask of the Kamakazi Kid!
Terrell Givens hit the ring ready for battle but found himself inside of the squared circle with the masked Mecha Mercenary. Scott, standing at ringside with the mask of Kamakazi Kid, watched as Mecha dismantled the smaller man, finally bellowing for the mask, which he put on his jelly-legged opponent before destroying him with a vicious clothesline. Mecha finished off this opponent in under two and a half minutes and is on a roll.
Arena Chicks action was up again, with Arena Chicks Commissioner Shelly Martinez announcing that due to Sara Del Ray signing with the WWE that the singles bout between Jazz and Rosita would be for the final spot in the Arena Chicks Championship Tournament which had been won by Del Ray. It didn't take but a second for the two hot-tempered young women to get busy with the idea of a shot at being the very first Arena Chicks Champion, and a fast-paced brawl erupted. After totally humiliating a MAN at ringside, Jazz turned her attention on Rosita, finally rolling her up for the pin and taking a celebratory victory lap before exiting as the latest addition to the Arena Chicks Title Tournament.
Six-man tag action was up next as the All Stars' Michael "the Fury" McAllister, Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega & CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion "Assassin" Ray Kandrack were led to the ring by Coach Gemini to do battle against Brad Stutts' team of Matt Smith, "Young Gun" Nick Richards & CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion Donnie Dollar$. All six men battled all over the arena, on the floor, in the aisles and even inside of the ring in a hectic brawl which knew no boundaries. When the smoke cleared, the All Stars team were celebrating a victory and Fatback's regulars were griping at Matt Smith, causing Stutts to loudly demand a shot at Smith in the Weaver Cup Quarterfinals on August 11th.
The Aftermath's Xsiris returned to action with manager William L. Cross, and was loaded for bear with former teammate Marcellus "Mid Atlantic" King crossed the stage and entered the ring. The two familiar foes took each other to the limits, but King was able to keep his wits about him and end the match with a pinfall over the former two-time CWF Champion. A masked figure entered the arena, attacking King and choking him out on the canvas with a steel baton. Finally removing his face cover, "the 1st" Ric Converse was soon joined by the Fun Aftermath Guys and Xsiris in beating down the already unmoving King before the referees could rescue him from the squared circle.
The main event hit the ring with no introductions, a brawl already underway when both teams got into the ring. CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Champions Killibillies "South Paw" Aric Andrews & "Honky Kong" Evan Banks battled All Stars Goon Squad Walter Eaton & Roy Wilkins as managers Coach Gemini and Bobby Jo Neil were handcuffed to each other at ringside. A war erupted, nothing short of an actual war, with bodies flying and dropping all over the ring area. No one was safe as the human missles attacked their opponents inside and outside of the squared circle, taking no prisoners and asking for no quarter. The Killbillies finally began to take the fight seriously and were able to put together a string of moves leading to a pinfall win over the former two-time tag team champions to retain the belts.
The Aftermath chose that time to re-emerge, hitting the ring en force, walking slowly past the All Stars before attacking the Killbillies. The All Stars exited as Marcellus King returned with a steel chair to even the odds and send his former teammates scurrying for cover. The Killbillies and King exchanged handshakes before exiting the arena during closing comments.
