The Aftermath's Ric Converse and Chet Sterling interrupted the pre-event activities to present their cases to the fans for the upcoming anniversary event BattleCade X-8.
In-ring action began with a six-man tag bout pitting Ethan Alexander Sharpe, Mike Mars and Kool J against CWF RGL Champion Dirty Daddy, Snooty Foxx and "Party Starter" Keith Mac. Ethan Sharpe led his team to victory by pinfall in the night's opener.
Brad Attitude answered the challenge of Chet Sterling via the video screen, agreeing to face him at CWF BattleCade X-8 from the ACC Championship game.
Christmas presents were then distributed to six of CWF's favorites, with Nick Richards and Michael McAllister unwrapping Mid Atlantic Tag Team shots against the Dawsons and Cam Carter unwrapped his second opportunity to challenge Jesse Adler for the CWF Worldwide Television Championship.
Jesse Adler hit the ring to take on the winner of the challenge, facing off against impressive Cam Carter for the second time with the title on the line. Both men took to the air during this outing with Adler standing tall after a pinfall win.
PWI President William L. Cross was introduced and he addressed the fact that PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion Logan Easton Laroux refusing to defend his belt at the Sportatorium. After being interrupted by Laroux on video, Cross ordered Laroux to appear at CWF BattleCade X-8 to defend his title against former two-time champion Andrew Everett!
CWF Mid Atlantic Tag Team Champion Dawson Brothers' Zane and Dave Dawson hit the ring and after seeing Nick Richards and Michael McAllister standing across the ring, thought they were being pranked. A brawl erupted and it took several minutes before the referee would even call for the bell. When the match began, Richards and McAllister went straight at the champions, who responded in kind, winning by pinfall to retain their titles.
The Sandwich Squad's Aaron Biggs and Mecha Mercenary entered to clear the ring and threw down a challenge for Last Man Standing tag title bout at CWF BattleCade X-8 to the Dawsons, who accept the challenge.
The "People's Choice" Aric Andrews entered as CWF Officials were prepared to draw the chellenger for CWF Worldwide Television Champion Jesse Adler, offering his assistance in the task. With the help of Andrews, the name was drawn for BattleCade, when the All Star's "Ace" Arik Royal will challenge Jesse Adler for his belt.
All Star Mace Li entered to rub a little salt in the wound of Andrews and found himself in an impromptu singles bout against Andrews. Li took the tide of battle to the former TV Champ but the suddenly popular "People's Choice" came away with a quick pinfall win.
Joey Lynch makes his return to the Sportatorium to take on young Cain Justice in singles action. A grappling bout erupted, with both men showing off their mat wrestling skills and educated feet. In a marathon of brutal shots, Cain Justice maintained his bearings and forced Lynch to submit well past the fifteen minute mark of the bout. Afterwards, Nick Richards approached the ring and threw down the gauntlet for a match at BattleCade X-8, which the cocky Justice accepted.
Coach Gemini led his All Star team of Roy Wilkins and "Ace" Arik Royal to the ring to take on the Aftermath's Ric Converse and Chet Sterling in a bit of a revenge match for the Aftermath. After more than twenty minutes of war, the All Stars win by pinfall and PWI International Heavyweight Champion C.W. Anderson enters the ring. Referee Kevin Pierce was taken down first by spinebuster and then rolled out of the center of the ring by the PWI Champ. Anderson jumped on Ric Converse in the corner and handcuffed him to the turnbuckles, grabbed a steel chair and threatened anyone who wanted to stop him with their life.
Anderson eventually sat in the chair out of arm's reach of Converse and asked him if he had been talking about retiring from wrestling. Then announced he would indeed give Converse the title shot, but only if Converse put his own career up against it. Converse hesitated, then countered, saying he'd put his career on the line against the PWI strap only if the match is fought under "I Quit" rules. Anderson got red-faced before finally accepting Converse's terms and left the arena in a storm.
