After introduction of the commentary team the All Stars' Jarry Carey entered and introduced Coach Gemini, the host of the Coach's Corner segment. Gemini called out red-hot rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson and went as far as offering him a "position" with the All Stars. When Jackson turned them down, things got a little physical and PWI Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins made his presence felt, joining in to attack the rookie. Jackson held up his end and was eventually in the ring alone, demanding a shot at Wilkins' title. Gemini agreed to a match later in the evening, but refused to put the title on the line.
Singles action kicked off SKY HIGH with the Corporate Number Dad leading out his youngest son, Number Braaah, to the ring for a singles match against TKOPA's Ulysse "OPA" Demos. The fan favorite OPA had the fans solidly behind him with his return to the USA, but Number Braaah refused to join in with the fans. Demos showed off some new in-ring moves and took the masked Braaah to the canvas, forcing him to submit to a Figure Four Leglock.
Danny Vegas was up next teaming with the Amish Outlaws Jebidiah Moss and Hezikiah Hoskins to take on Redemption's Michael McAllister, Mike Mars and Bobby Wohlfert in six-man tag team action. An actual bruhaha erupted with all six men delivering damage and mayhem nearly ensued before Amish Outlaws and Vegas finished off the match with a pinfall win with an assist from a churn. Yes. A churn.
Cain Justice hits the ring, demands the house mic and once again calls out Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe. Sharpe eventually does make his way to ringside, but he came with partners Dirty Daddy and Bellamy Koga in tow. Sharpe explained he and Dirty Daddy had a qualifier match later in the night and only Koga was "free" to wrestle a challenge match, to which Justice agreed to. Justice began his calculated torment of the big man, and the Corruption team continued to make an effort to help decide the outcome of the match. After the eleven minute mark, Justice finds himself on the floor at ringside as Dirty Daddy clubs him with the steel pipe he brings to ringside, with the referee unaware. They toss him back into the ring and Koga steals a win, albiet a three-on-one battle.
PWI International Heavyweight Champion All Star Roy Wilkins was introduced and joined at ringside by Coach Gemini and Jarry Carey for his non-title singles match against rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson. Jackson entered hot and Wilkins tried to let him burn himself out, making him run, attacking his midsection and breathing and by constantly bailing to the floor when there was no advantage to remaining in the squared circle. Wilkins more or less controlled the first nine minutes of the match before Jackson realized he was still capable of snatching the champion off of his feet and forcing him to submit in the Torture Rack. However, the numbers game won out again, with Wilkins taking the rookie down for the three count.
Aric Andrews grabbed a steel chair and the house mic and made himself comfortable in the ring, ready to resume his running monologue with the CWF faithful. Before he could finish a sentence, Kamakazi Kid flew out of the back into the ring and clobbered Andrews with the steel chair as he exited the ring and made his way out of the arena. Kazi grabbed the mic and challenged Aric Andrews to his possibly career-changing signature match, a KAZI RULES MATCH for CWF ABSOLUTE JUSTICE!
Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy entered along with Bellamy Koga for the final Qualifier Match for the 3rd Annual KERNODLE BROTHERS TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT against PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx and CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. A fight between the very familiar foes erupted and The fan favorites took a quick advantage over the Corruption team. The battle waged back and forth, leading up to a huge momentum advantage for the eventual victor, qualifying for the big two-night tournament in May. However, there was no winner after Cain Justice ran back into the arena to attack Ethan A. Sharpe and during the confusion, the referee calls for the bell, stating that a wrestler had put his hands on him, throwing the match out completely.
Jarry Carey basked in the glow of the adoring Sportatorium fans and introduced All Star Arik "AceGawd" Royal, who was scheduled to challenge CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs for his belt. The two big men butted heads, brawled, powered, shoved and kicked their way to a stalemate, with the traditional ten minute time limit expiring with no winner. Royal began challenging Biggs to re-start the match, beat him if he wanted to remain champion and the Rampaging Beast bit, allowing the official to start the match again with the title still on the line. The bulls of the woods fought an epic battle that broke down to fisticuffs and survival and three minutes after the match was began a second time, Biggs pinned the Ace to retain the title.
