CWF STORM WARNING kicked off with the introdution of the commentary team of CL Party and Chris Riddle, followed by the unexpected visitation from PWI President William L. Cross. Cross made a public announcement that Coach Gemini had been avoiding him and that his Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Arik Royal and Roy Wilkins were required by rule to defend during the month of August. So notice was given that the All Stars would have to defend either on this night or the only other scheduled event, the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th.
Six-man lucha rules action kicked off the evening's contests pitting Corruption's Ethan A. Sharpe, Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga against CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay, Michael McAllister and Adrian "Action" Jackson. All six men went to war with the mission to obliterate his opponents and the match broke down into a brawl on the concrete floor before being ruled a double count-out, with neither team getting the win.
"Big Hurt" DeAndre Jackson was out next to challenge Snooty Foxx for his PWI Central Carolinas Championship in a battle of big men. The two butted heads with Jackson gaining a noticable advantage over the popular champion in a slobber-knocker of a fight. Foxx regained his traction late and retained his title over the surging challenger via pinfall.
Tasty Waves' Buddy Flowers entered the arena at the commentary table, literally dragging Chris Riddle into the ring to ask where his tag partner Number Braaah was at. Corporate Number Dad made his way to the ring to have a few words with Flowers, basically deriding him as a bad influence on his son and telling him that they could no longer play games or hang out together before exiting the ring. Khan O'Kelly, flanked by Donald J. BitDon and Otto Wrestling Machine entered and traded barbs with Flowers and Riddle and threw down a challenge to wrestle. The game Flowers was all in but in a Khan O'Kelly swerve, he announced Otto Schwanz would wrestle in the match rather than himself.
Schwanz activated the Wrestling Machine and began to dismantle the young Buddy Flowers, methodically and without emotion. Flowers would not quit, kept trying to fight back until he stunned Schwanz with a dropkick to the chest that pushed him into the corner turnbuckles. Otto Wrestling Machine took control and put it on automatic, but found himself at the wrong end of the pinfall decision, with Buddy Flowers getting a huge CWF victory over the veteran Schwanz.
Second-round 2019 Weaver Cup Tournament action was introduced pitting two-time former Cup Champion All Star "Ace" Arik Royal against another former Cup Champion, "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega for a trip to the Weaver Cup Finals on August 24th. A physical battle ensued with Ortega seeming to turn the tide of battle by catching Royal on the canvas in a painful armbar, a setup for his Fujiwara armbar submission, and grinding Royal's shoulder into the mat. Royal survived the pain and turned the tide of battle to win by pinfall for his ticket to the Weaver Quarterfinal Round.
BitDon Corporation's CEO Donald J. BitDon entered with Khan O'Kelly to challenge the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs for his CWF WorldWide Television Championship. The CEO took the fight to the champion early but it only served to awaken the Beast inside of the TV champion, who roared to a decisive pinfall win to retain his championship.
The masked Corporate Number Dad entered the ring for singles action against fan favorite Cain Justice. They exchanged a few barbs as the official called for the bell and Number Braaah's dad seemed to take control of the match. That is, until he made the mistake of referring to Justice as "Trevor Light", which lit a fire under him. The training of the current NXT star showed itself as Justice beat down and pinned the mouthy Number Dad.
Scheduled as the main event, second-round 2019 Weaver Cup Tournament action was introduced pitting two past Cup Champions against each other for the second time in the evening. PWI International Heavyweight Champion AND CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champion All Star Roy Wilkins squared off with Brad Attitude in a match needed in the quest to become a two-time champion. Attitude went particularly vicious on a couple of occassions, even whipping the referee into Wilkins and swearing he didn't mean too. Wilkins kept his head on a swivel but was unable to keep Attitude from grabbing a chair and attacking him with it. Familiarity breeds contempt and perhaps the biggest factor in this match was Wilkins' scouting of his sometimes ally Attitude, as the All Stars end up with two members qualifying for the Weaver Cup Quarterfinals with a Wilkins pinfall win.
As the All Stars began to celebrate Corruption entered the arena with a house mic asking when Corruption gets their tag title rematch. PWI President Cross intervened and reminded Coach Gemini that if they wait until the Finals that both of his men may have to wrestle THREE matches to complete their contractual obligations, to which Jarry Carey replied that they'd take on Corruption "right now", which was acknowledged by Cross, who booked the bonus main event and called for an official.
Fans began returning to their seats as the CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Title bout began pitting the champions Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal against Corruption's Dirty Daddy and Killer Koga began. Corruption took a quick advantage, with the help of Dirty Daddy's steel pipe allowing them to take on Wilkins two-on-one for part of the bout. Wilkins held court until Royal was ready to compete and both survived numerous double-teams and squashed the challenge by pinfall in under ten minutes to retain their tag titles heading into the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament Finals Night on August 24th. All Stars Roy Wilkins and Arik Royal join Cain Justice and Ethan A. Sharpe as the 2019 Final Four of the Weaver Cup Tournament.
