C.L. Party and Nick Richards were introduced for commentary and the Sportatorium roared to life with the introduction of the first bout of the evening, tag team action. Viva Las Amish's Hezekiah Hoskins and Danny Vegas entered with Beckey the Chicken to take on Adrian "Action" Jackson and CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay. With Betsey returned to the locker room, the teams squared off in an entertaining battle between familiar foes. Rookie "Action" Jackson forced the bell on this match after catching Hoskins in the Torture Rack for the submission.
PWI Central Carolinas Champion Snooty Foxx entered next to take on big Mike Mars in a non-title singles bout. The two bulls locked horns and exchanged greetings that rang around the Sportatorium like the impact of an automobile crash. The battle took its toll on both warriors but once Mars got the momentum late, he continued to move forward until he was able to beat the champion by pinfall, a wonderful argument for a future title shot.
Khan O'Kelly lead Team BitDon's Otto Wrestling Machine to the ring for singles action against the masked rookie, the Number Braaah. Otto Schwanz manhandled the youngster early, but when he found his footing, Number Braaah took the fight to the seasond Wrestling Machine. Otto, however, had seen this movie before and took the bout to the ringside area and regained control of the match with a time-limit challenging pinfall win.
CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs was out next to defend his title against the "Big Hurt of Pro Wrestling" DeAndre Jackson. These two let each other know at the bell that neither cared for the other and the mood of the fight reflected their animosity. Jackson opened his bag of tricks but it seems the Rampaging Beast saw them coming as he retained his title by pinfall.
Second-round action in the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament kicked off with Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe with Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga entered to take on former Weaver Cup Winner Kamakazi Kid. The tag champions made their presence known at ringside and as the match went on, by sliding into the ring and onto the apron, forcing the assigned referee to send them to the locker room. As the official ordered them to the back, Sharpe took advantage and landed a painful low blow behind his back, sending Kazi crumpled to the canvas. Sharpe advances to the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th by pinfall.
A highly-anticipated second-round Weaver Cup match followed, pitting the "Smoothest Skywalker" Cam Carter against the CWF Dojo's own Cain Justice. The match did not disappoint as the two tried to one-up each other and prove dominance over the other. The tide of battle rocked back and forth in a battle of rising stars of the indy wrestling scene. Cain Justice pulled off the pinfall to advance to the Weaver Finals, but thanked Cam Carter for the match and promised if he could win the Weaver Cup and the CWF title, he would most definitely grant Carter at title shot.
The main event was introduced as the All Stars team of PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins and Arik "Ace" Royal entered with Jarry Carey and Coach Gemini challenging Corruption's Killer Koga and Dirty Daddy, who arrived at ringside with the "Corruptor" Ethan A. Sharpe for their CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team titles. The savages were indeed fired up and after over twenty minutes of a quite personal battle, as predicted by Coach Gemini, the All Stars relieved Corruption of their tag titles by pinfall. A celebration erupted as they exited the arena with Gemini declaring he WILL have Triple Crown Champions at the Weaver Cup Finals on Saturday August 24th.
The All Stars celebration interrupted Khan O'Kelly's Twitch Aftershow before they swept out of the Sportatorium for an extended private celebration at another location.
