Lovely ladies C.L. Party and Chasity Taylor kicked off CWF BATTLECADE XIX by introducing singles action pitting the incredible Bobby Wohlfert with Monkey against powerful Kozone. Kozone seemed taken back for a few moments by Wohlfert's antics, style(s) and manager in the corner, a stuffed monkey with an incredible tag title record. Kozone relied on his power-based skills while Wohlfert adapted and went a completely different direction (several times, actually), eventually taking the larger Kozone to the canvas for a pinfall win.
Next up was a Four-Way Battle for a shot at the CWF WorldWide Television Championship at a future event, with Donald J. BitDon entering, followed by Chris "TNT" Taylor, Mike Mars and Snooty Foxx. All four brawled inside and outside of the ring, with the BitDon CEO spending more time outside of the ring than in. As the tide of battle rolled on, Mike Mars was able to win the title shot by pinfall over Taylor while Foxx and BitDon were on the floor.
All Star announcer Jarry Carey was out next to introduce All Star Mace Li to take on veteran CWF Champion Jesse "El Fuego" Ortega in grudge match action. Li kept his distance, hit and ran and kept his opponent chasing him early in the match, but soon found himself being covered like a blanket by a submission wrestler intent on getting a measure of revenge for past transgressions. The match appeared to be pretty even until Ortega turned Mace Li over on the canvas and forced a quick tap-out submission.
Magnificent Seven RGL Shoot Out action was introduced (it was a Six-Shooter, right?), with one of the seven scheduled competitors actually never answering the bell. So after introductions, Kyler Myzery, Bellamy Koga, Alexander Moss, "Cowboy" Kool Jay, "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. and RGL Champion Ulysse "OPA" Demos went at it for the title. Wrestling broke out in and out of the ring in the packed and sold out Sportatorium and nearly every pinfall attempt was broken up by a third competitor. When the smoke cleared, former two-time CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay saddled up and rode off into the sunset with the title belt firmly around his waist once again.
Another grudge match is introduced, pitting Smith Garrett, fresh off of a long injury-related absence, against his so-called "best friend" Ric Converse. Garrett ran a little, deferred a little and struck like a rattlesnake when an opportunity showed itself. "The 1st" Ric Converse kept on the offensive, eventually busting open his rival, who fell to the canvas screaming in pain holding his ankle. PWI's William L. Cross came to ringside demanding the referee stop the match and award it to Converse, but Garrett begged off, eventually catching Converse with his guard down and dropping him to the canvas for a pinfall win from a surprise kick.
Tag team action was up next with the team of "Pitbull" Steven Idol and PWI International Heavyweight Champion Roy Wilkins taking on the veteran team of "High Definition" Steve Greene and Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride. McBride blistered the chest of the Pitbull in the corner and he was fortunate enough to be fast enough to escape having his oil checked a moment later. The PWI Champion didn't decide to actually participate until late in the match, but the damage had already been done to his tag partner, allowing the High Def Boogie Mens a pinfall win.
Another grudge match was introduced pitting Aric Andrews against former CWF Champ Kamakazi Kid. The masked man started off fast and furious, with fists and feet landing in the vicinity of Andrews' face. Andrews slowed the fight down to his speed and started leaning hard on Kazi, eventually driving him into the canvas for a pinfall win after well over ten minutes of battle.
CWF Worldwide Television Champion Otto Schwanz was out next accompanied by BitDon CEO Donald J. BitDon and Director of Marketing Khan O'Kelly to take on the challenge of the "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs. It was almost as if the impossible happened when the big Schwanz realized that Biggs wasn't going to back down and appeared to be injured enough to start favoring a limb. It was a head butt that secured the title for the Beast, however, as that's what finally took the veteran champion off of his feet for the final time.
One of the newest representatives of PWI International, Brian Hughes, was introduced and then in turn introduced the special guest referee for the next contest, Andrew Everett. The "Southern Savior" John Skyler was then introduced, followed by PWI International Ultra-J Crown Champion "Skywalker" Cam Carter for a highly-anticipated battle of skills and wrestling styles. The Extreme Horseman Skyler went full combat mode at the bell and early on seemed to have taken a leg away from the high-flying fan-favorite Carter. With the final seconds of the match ticking away on the big screen, Skyler got the pinfall over Cam Carter and then demanded Everett to raise his hand.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team title action was up next with the Corruption team of Ethan A. Sharpe and Dirty Daddy signed the dotted line to take on Redemption's Nick Richards and Michael McAllister. Cain Justice, still on crutches, entered and went to the corner and was soon ordered to leave by his own "partner" Sharpe, who was surprisingly backed up by the referee. In a dramatic turn, it appeared that finally...FINALLY...Sharpe's vaunted "plan" was about to actually work, with Corruption winning the Mid-Atlantic Tag Titles. That's when Cain Justice returned to the ring and wrapped a crutch around the head of Sharpe, moments later Redemption retains the titles by pinfall.
With everything that has been written, everything that had been discussed, everyone in the sold out Sportatorium was on the edge of their seats for the introduction of CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion Trevor Lee and Golden Ticket Challenger All Star "Ace" Arik Royal. The only rule for the match was that it must end with a pinfall. It could not end any other way, so no count-outs or DQs by rule. With the door open for "legal" outside interference, the All Stars' Mace Li joined in attacking the champion as did eventually Jarry Carey and Coach Gemini. Lee kept dispatching the "extra" All Stars only to see Royal bearing down on him once agaion.
Trevor Lee got thrown to the floor and was mobbed by the All Stars and crawled back into the ring busted open to the horror of the fans. He didn't quit. He didn't back down. So PWI Heavyweight Champ Roy Wilkins returns with a kendo stick and attacks Lee again as a fresh antagonist in the ring. Trevor Lee kept somehow sending the All Stars fleeing, and eventually tossed enough of them out of the ring to pin big Arik Royal without someone breaking the count.
Trevor asked for the house mic and addressed the fans, dedicating the night's match to his late father. Brad Attitude slipped into the ring with a steel chair and rudely interrupted the champion, sitting in his familiar place in the center of the ring with the house mic after wiping Lee out. A figure from the VIP section rose and made his way to the ring, climbed in and choke-slammed Brad Attitude, and kids, it was a real live superhero! Shane "Hurricane" Helms cleared the ring of the Brad Attitude threat and helped Trevor Lee to his feet as the crowd roared.
