Former CWF WorldWide Television Champion Aric Andrews made a campaign appearance prior to the first bout and actually chose the night's challenger for the title. CWF Worldwide TV Champ Jesse Adler entered to discover he was facing Ivan Ali per the blind draw. Ali hit the ring and took advantage of his rare opportunity, but fell short with Adler retaining the title by pinfall.
The 2017 Rising Generation League Tournament kicked off with first-round action pitting "Pitbull" Steven Idol against current RGL Champion Dirty Daddy. The Pitbull continued to make an impression on the fans and opponents, but came up just short, with Daddy advancing by pinfall.
First-round RGL Tournament action then pitted All Star Mace Li with Jarry Carey against the masked Metallico. Li advanced to the second round by a submission win over the masked man.
Big Mike Mars was introduced for first-round tournament action to face off with Kool J. Mars missed a big clothesline early on and took a boot to the mouth in the last minute of the match, but otherwise manhandled his smaller opponent before pinning him to advance to the second round.
"Filmmaker" Movie Myk with Big Zoe entered next to battle Big Time Yah in first-round RGL Tournament action. This one could have gone overtime, maybe twice, as both men are eliminated from the tornament due to exceeding the time limit. This advances Mike Mars to the RGL Final at CWF BattleCade 18 in December.
Lee Valiant made his way to the ring to take on "Revolutionary" Darius Lockhart in a special attraction singles battle. About five minutes in, Valiant appeared to be missing a cylinder and Lockhart turned on the overdrive to win by pinfall.
All Star Mace Li returned to the ring to battle CWF RGL Champ Dirty Daddy for a shot at Mike Mars at BattleCade 18.

Daddy advanced to the RGL Showdown against Mike Mars, who made his way to the ring to get in his face in an act of intimidation.
Ten-man RGL Survivor action pitted Ethan Alexander Sharpe, "Filmmaker" Movie Myk, Big Zoe, Cain Justice and Number Boy against Snooty Foxx, Bellamy Koga, Wes Rogers, "Playboy" Bobby Ballentyne & newcomer "Mr. Second To None" Dajuan O'Neal. Snooty Foxx and partner Dajuan O'Neal pinned Ethan Sharpe and Cain Justice at the same time to survive and win the RGL Survivor main event.
