"Cowboy" Kool Jay got clobbered with a guitar that he brought to the ring during intros after asking 2018 Weaver Cup opponent "Southern Savior" John Skyler to perform a song for him. The bell rang and Skyler began to dismantle the popular young sheriff with the big picture, seeing his name on the Weaver Cup Trophy as inspiration. The Cowboy put up a good fight and made a valiant run at the end, but was unable to withstand the relentless Skyler, who wins by pinfall.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Champions Corruption's Cain Justice and Ethan Sharpe entered next for Justice to take on PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Cam Carter for the second spot in the tournament's final bout later in the night. Friction between the tag champions seemed to rise to the surface and an obvious double-team forced the ring official to eject Sharpe from the arena. Just as it seemed Justice would face Skyler later in the evening, Cam Carter used his incredible recuperative powers to will himself back into the match to advance to the Weaver Final later in the event by pinfall.
The All Stars Show followed, with Jarry Carey interviewing "Ace" Arik Royal inside the arena. After questions about titles and gold, PWI International Heavyweight Champion "the 1st" Ric Converse interrupted with a black cloth sack in hand and his baton in his back pocket. As four All Stars stood together, Converse got into the face of Royal and challenged him to face him for the title on September 8. The baton was merely waved, and the bag containing the "Big PWI Gold" championship belt left the ring with Converse as he made his exit.
With the All Stars' Roy Wilkins and Mace Li already at ringside following the Converse challenge, introductions began for the CWF Golden Ticket Battle Royal. The ring filled as the All Stars cowered on the floor at ringside and the bell was rang. Eliminations began to happen and after the bulk of the contenders were neutralized, Wilkins and Li dove into the fight, eliminating competitors. Li was eliminated by Donnie BitDon and BitDon was then eliminated by Mike Mars, who never saw Roy Wilkins coming from behind him to eliminate him and win the CWF Golden Ticket.
In bizarre circumstances from the previous week's Rising Generation League event, CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Corruption's Ethan Sharpe and Cain Justice were out next to defend their titles against the Blazing Saddles team of CWF RGL Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay and "Marshal" Michael McAllister due to a previous match's stipulations. The Corruption Method continued to work, eventually singling out one opponent and wearing him down, but the Sheriff used his moxy and found a way to tag in the fresh Marshal who was ready to distribute a little frontier justice of his own. The long arm of the law somehow found it in themselves to upset the champions by pinfall, leaving Corruption in turmoil and without titles. This also creates a rather unique situation in CWF Mid-Atlantic, with "Cowboy" Kool Jay winning his second title, making him the SECOND current CWF Double Crown Champion!
"Southern Savior" John Skyler and "Skywalker" Cam Carter entered the ring and began their personal battle to get their name inscribed on the Johnny Weaver Cup Trophy in the 2018 Weaver Tournament Final. The adjectives "amazing", "brutal", "physical" and yes, "personal" seemed to be the best description of the match between these two rising stars. It was a beautiful representation of the athletic physicality of wrestling competition between two gladiators from bell-to-bell. Skyler dished out punishment at a workman's pace and the Skywalker kept appearing to absorb everything the Southern Savior dished out. The match ebbed and flowed back and forth with the sum of the damage taken causing the Ultra-J Crown Champ to get pinned for the three-count by a suddenly talkative John Skyler.
After PWI President William L. Cross presented the Weaver Cup Trophy to the fifteenth annual tournament's champion, Skyler took the house mic and announced that finally, he has arrived. Who's to argue with this statement?
Chet Sterling stepped through the ropes to take on his best friend CWF Double Crown Champion Trevor Lee for the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title for the evening's main event and emotions were thick as the official called for the bell. Sterling, who is rarely tentative, was just a bit so with his friend early, but eventually after taking a licking from Lee, decided it was really ok to give some back. Sterling discovered he could actually inflict some level of pain on Lee, but also discovered that Trevor Lee tends to return any debt quickly and to the point. Both competitors survived an inferno, but Sterling was unable to wrestle away the Heavyweight Title from Lee, who won by pinfall and then helped up his friend up to make sure they were still good after their first war.
