Following the National Anthem, rookie referee Joey Hogan entered the ring in a suit with the house mic. Explaining that he would not be working as referee on this night, Hogan tells the fans he received a package from the CWF Mid Atlantic office a day ago with documents naming HIM as the Commissioner of the Rising Generation League.
Mecha Mercenary hit the ring for singles action against the most recent graduate of the CWF Dojo, a young masked grappler known as San Andreas. The rookie was game and refused to quit even after almost having his spleen handed to him before his own eyes. After several attempts to remove the young competitor's head from his torso, Mecha finished him off via pinfall. Still unsatisfied, Mecha renewed hostilities on the winded and bruised San Andreas. As he climbs the turnbuckles to destroy the rookie, Aaron Biggs hits the ring and interrupts the beat down. Commissioner Hogan grabs the house mic and orders the two into the ring for a "Wrestlemania I" style Bodyslam Challenge bout!
Mecha Mercenary seems to have a hesitation when it comes to Biggs, a fiery youngster who refuses to back down from the masked monster, one of the few competitors who takes on the beast face-to-face. Mecha put it in reverse after a few lock-ups and appeared to begin wrestling defensively. Biggs took the energy from the fans, added his own unstoppable momentum and lifted the mechanical monster, slamming him to the canvas for the win.
"El Jefe" Manny Garcia was out next to take on one of the most popular youngsters in the area, Lebron Kozone, in a singles tilt. An entertaining bout erupted with both men getting in their best shots and neither gaining an advantage, but the momentum soon leaned toward the Costa Rican star Garcia. Kozone appeared to be nursing an injured leg as he kicked out of numerous pinfall attempts before catching Garcia in a schoolboy, rolling him up for a huge upset win.
Charlie Weston, one half of the Smith & Weston team, was out next for singles action against one half of the Killbillies, "South Paw" Aric Andrews. A clinic broke out upon the opening bell. A three-way conversation between the two wrestlers and the fans at ringside kicked off early on as well. The on-again off-again bout kept witnessing Weston hitting the concrete to break any momentum garnered by Andrews as the fans began loudly chanting and calling moves! This goes on for almost a half hour, give and take, move and counter and finally, an Aric Andrews pinfall over rival Weston.
Over the Top Rope Challenge action was up next with everyone battling for a guaranteed spot in the 13th Annual CWF RUMBLE on iPPV on Saturday October 5th. Lebron Kozone & Charlie Weston were still being pried off of the concrete as rookie San Andreas somehow eliminated Manny Garcia to win a spot in the Rumble.
Best of Three Falls RGL Championship action was the main event of the first-ever Rising Generation League event, pitting champion Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea against the Aftermath's confident Chet Sterling. The two went tooth and nail for ten minutes with Lea being awarded the first fall after the referee DQed Sterling for not following his instructions! Exactly a minute later, Sterling got a clean three-count pin over the still-woozy RGL Champion and attacked before the thirty second rest period barely began to even the score at 1 to 1. Lea regained his composure, kept his head up and won the bout by pinfall as the crowd roared their approval.
