Commentary team CL Party and Khan O'Kelly were introduced and CWF STAND & DELIVER was underway! Tag team action kicked off the competition as Corruption's Ethan Sharpe and Dirty Daddy squared off against the team of "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega and Mike Mars. The veteran wiles of Ortega combined with the juggernaut Mike Mars upset the established tag team with a pinfall win.
Fan-favorite Chris "TNT" Taylor was out next to take on the unpredictable Aric Andrews in singles action. Taylor took control early by going to the canvas but the poster child for a bad attitude kicked his game up a gear and took control, winning by pinfall with a snarl for the fans.
Bellamy Koga hit the entrance ramp for non-title singles action against powerhouse PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx with a look of determination in his eyes. Foxx entered and went to work against the developing veteran competitor who has made noticable gains in the past year. When Foxx turned the tables in has favor, Corruption make their presence felt with a little distraction on one side of the ring that allowed an attack on the other. Foxx was defeated by pinfall in a three-on-one situation and Ethan Sharpe added insult to injury by choosing that time to announce Bellamy Koga is officially the newest member of Corruption.
With the possibility of your team being eliminated from the 3rd Annual Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament or a guaranteed high seed for the winner, Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister squared off against CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay and "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. A fast yet friendly bout broke out with the fans being the true winners. The Sheriff bounced off of the concrete like a super ball at one point after being tossed out of the ring and hit the ring without losing a stride as both teams showed a bit of their training to everyone watching. Redemption wins the bout by pinfall, embraces their opponents and exit together.
The "Pride of Pacifice Palasades" Number Braaah was introduced next for singles action against former CWF Champion Kamakazi Kid in a battle of the masked men. Blows were exchanged and both competitors questioned each other's parentage in an entertaining chopfest that left the rookie Number Braaah's chest blistered from vicious Kazi chops. Number Braaah didn't back down, had a few moments where he hit Kazi with a big air move and followed with a near pinfall with Kamakazi somewhat stunned. Kazi held court and refused to bend to the most recent addition to the Numbers Family, winning by pinfall over the impressive young Dojo grad.
Coach Gemini introduced "Ace" Arik Royal, who in turn introduced himself all over again before the introduction of his singles opponent rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson with a shot at the CWF Worldwide Television Title on the line. Jackson quickly showed Royal that he was there for the TV Title shot and wasn't intimidated by the multiple-time Weaver Cup and CWF champion's history or stature. Royal continues to prove he can will himself into an irresistable force, taking the red-hot rookie to task and winning by pinfall for the shot at CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Champions Donald J. BitDon and Otto Schwanz entered with Khan O'Kelly taking the house mic and demanding to see PWI President Cross who ordered the champions to defend against a mystery team. CL Party entered with Cross' proxy, the official announcement that the challengers were former CWF Tag Champions the Dawson Brothers, Dave and Zane Dawson. They entered from the fire exit as Team BitDon awaited an entrance from the stage and chaos ensued. A hard-fought and often confusing battle raged with O'Kelly interfering whenever possible from the floor and even the ring apron. The Dawsons turned their rage at one point to the BitDon Marketing Director and that was the opening the champions needed to redouble their efforts and retain the titles by pinfall.
PWI International Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins entered for the main event with Coach Gemini and Arik Royal, and Royal "retired" to the commentary position. Challenger Cain Justice entered and the two went at it before the bell sounded. Justice took the champion to the canvas quickly and began to work over areas around the Wilkins' wrist and hand before starting into the almost ritual-like manipulation of the joints of the lower arm. Thirty minutes into the match and it takes an attack from Royal to key an All Star advantage, with the referee's attention diverted just right for an attack that leaves Justice on his back ripe for the pinfall win. Wilkins takes the pin and the All Stars then continue the attack the already beaten up Justice on the canvas as the Corruption team rushes in to join the Cain-bashing bash. The locker room cleared and after several minutes of brawling the All Stars and Corruption were beat back as the rest of the roster stood together as a unit in the ring.
