Anthony Henry made his CWF debut by taking on high-flyer Tracer X in singles aciton. The impressive offensive kicks and attacks by Henry made his debut a successful one over a high-quality opponent.
Six-man tag action was up next as the Ugly Ducklings' Rob Killjoy, Colby Corino & Lance Lude found themselves facing Nick Richards, Chet Sterling & Andrew Everett after throwing out a challenge. A fast-paced fun yet brutal bout ensued with Richards, Sterling & Everett winning the bout by pinfall.

CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews & Lee Valiant were up next to challenge Mecha Mercenary & Aaron Biggs for the CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Titles. The challengers spent much of the match in reverse as the immovable objects continued to roll over opponents in search of sammiches. Biggs & Mecha win by pinfall to retain their titles.
Seventeen men stepped through the ropes for the main event $1,000 Battle Royal. RGL Champion Dirty Daddy, Kool J, Mr. Grim, "White" Mike Jordan, Him, Samoa Joey, Nick Richards, Chet Sterling, Andrew Everett, Arik Royal, Number Man, Number Boy, Ethan Alexander Sharpe, Otto the Wrestling Machine, Coach Gemini, PWI International Heavyweight Champion Ric Converse & Snooty Foxx went to war for a cash prize.
