Six-man tag team action kicked off a hot night of pro wrestling action at CWF GOLD RUSH with Donnie BitDon, Otto Schwanz and "Pitbull" Steven Idol taking on the team of "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs, Mike Mars and Snooty Foxx. Violence, hard impacts and crushing blows highlighted this mass of humanity as they struggled for supremecy in the squared circle. With the actual use of some slight of hand and teamwork, the ICO Corporation's entry came out with the duke, a pinfall win for BitDon, Schwanz and Idol.
Singles action was introduced next with newcomer "The Goatest Of All Time" Bobby Orlando stepping through the ropes to take on returning Chris "TNT" Taylor. Orlando seemed to be conflicted and confused at moments, but Bobby Jr. at ringside helped keep him focused on the bout from bell to bell. Taylor went big and was thwarted early, but connected and picked up a pinfall win over Bobby Orlando, who definitely made an impression on the fans.
C.L. Party entered the arena to draw the final entrant in the CWF RUMBLE, and had the nerve to pull the name of Aric Andrews, who then graced the arena with his presence and some words for both the fans and the company.
Tag team action hit the ring next with the Corporate Number Dad and Number Man taking on Dirty Daddy and "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. The Dad used this bout to explain a few finer points of the pro wrestling skillset to Number Man, but Dirty and Ireland were having nothing to do with it. The returning Dirty Daddy and rookie TKO took the pinfall win to a roar from the fans.
The All Star entourage of Jarry Carey, Arik "Ace" Royal and Mace Li entered with All Star Roy Wilkins in his quest for the PWI International Heavyweight Championship, and it's holder "the 1st" Ric Converse. Converse entered confidently and despite a four-on-one advantage, maintained control of the match from start to finish. Converse weathered the storm and defeated Wilkins by pinfall to retain his championship when the All Stars attacked.
Smith Garrett, who was doing ringside commentary, once again grabbed whatever was nearby and leapt into the ring to defend his friend Ric Converse. The All Stars backed away and were as stunned as the fans when Garrett turned and dropped his friend to the canvas like a sack of rocks. Garrett pointed at the unmoving form of Converse and shouted at the All Stars to "do it!" The All Stars immediately produced Wilkin's CWF GOLDEN TICKET, and cashed it in for an immediate PWI Heavyweight Championship rematch. It took four seconds for Wilkins to pin the unconscious Converse to win the title.
Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe and Cain Justice entered next, loudly discussing their "plans" for the match as they got a rematch with CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Blazing Saddles "Marshal" McAllister and Sheriff "Cowboy" Kool Jay. The champions and challengers exchanged pleasantries and battled until the Corruption team began to display a new rift between Justice and Sharpe. Blazing Saddles turned back Corruption after the official threw out the match after losing control with the champions retaining the titles by rule.
As Corruption argued out of the arena Khan O'Kelly led Donnie BitDon and Otto Schwanz back into the arena and attacked the tag champions, making a point that they wanted the tag team belts. Both champions were dropped and left laying as the All Stars made their way back to the ring with Mace Li screaming for the referee to start the RGL championship match quick! Kool Jay said to go and the bell was rang, with Li tormenting him for several minutes before the Cowboy got a second wind, took on the rest of the All Stars and was standing tall with Mace Li face-down on the canvas. The Sheriff climbed to the top ropes to finish off the All Star when a figure in blue rushed to the ringpost and threw powder in the face of Kool Jay, allowing Mace Li the chance to pin him for the title because of being blinded. Yes, Coach Gemini has returned.
The All Star celebration was cut short by "El Fuego" Jesse Ortega and son coming to the ring with the house mic to question his former championship tag partner about the guys he's "leading" these days, reminding him that a few years ago they were beating those same guys up on the regular. Ortega particularly ranked Li as a coward and said he would see him again soon.
Chet Sterling addressed the fans and stated he's ready for whatever is ahead and threw his name into the hat for the thirty-man CWF RUMBLE on Saturday October 6th!
Main event introductions complete, Joshua Cutshall and Trevor Lee prepared to battle for BOTH of Lee's CWF Championships, the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title and the CWF Worldwide Television Title. A slobberknocker ensued with Cutshall displaying some incredible staying power despite also displaying several distinct personalities during the course of the night. There was an announcement at the ten minute mark that the TV Title was no longer in play and Cutshall changed up again, dropping out of the ring to the floor and then under the ring. Lee followed moments later, pulling up the ring apron to find Cutshall, who clobbered him with a steel chair from under the ring.
The referee did NOT see this, and the match continued, but Cutshall then brought the steel chair into the ring along with Lee and the referee was forced to call for the bell and a disqualification. On the canvas, an angry Trevor Lee bellowed out "NO!" and demanded the referee re-start the match as an Anything Goes Match, and he complied. The match restarted with the referee's hands basically tied to anything involving the steel chair and outside objects, but both men survived the steel chair portion, with the frantic Cutshall exiting the arena into the lobby, returning with a stack of Trevor Lee's promo photos from his table. He fished under the ring apron and produced an industrial staple gun and then began stapling the photos onto the back and shoulders of the champion.
Trevor Lee screamed in pain as he fought his way back to his feet with three staples holding photos to his back only to have one attached to his chest when he found Cutshall in the ring again. Lee continued to rage and got the staple gun away from the madman, and stomped Cutshall's hand flat on the canvas before driving a staple through it too for good measure.
The referee stopped the fight at the 35:02 mark when he determined that Cutshall could no longer defend himself and may have been unconscious, with Lee exiting as the only CWF Double Crown Champion remaining after Kool Jay's RGL Title loss earlier in the evening.
