The REP w/Maven Bentley def. The Awakening to retain the CZW Tag Team Championship
Thanks to Maven Bentley distracting the referee and preventing the Awakening a victory, Carter and McCall remain champions. Following their victory, the Storm of Entrails arrived with the Ultimate Opportunity Medallion.
The REP w/Maven Bentley def. Storm of Entrails to retain the CZW Tag Team Championship
Bentley once again attempted to get involved in the match, but this time G-Raver and Stockade return to stop the interference. However, Shlak felt they were trying to prevent the Storm of Entrails from winning. This miscommunication allowed the REP to walk away victorious for the second time in less than one hour!
Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Rickey Shane Page Sign World Championship Match Contract
As expected, MJF showed a complete lack of respect for the sitting champion as they signed their contract for their upcoming match at Best of the Best 17 on April 14th. While signing their contract, a backstage altercation between Conor Claxton and Alex Colon spilled out into the ringside area and into the ring. RSP would assist in breaking the situation up and action setup a tag match featuring he and Colon taking on Claxton and MJF for later in the evening.
Joey Janela def. Ace Romero
Jonathan Gresham def. Joe Gacy w/F.E.A.R.
Gresham would be a last minute replacement for an absent Rich Swann. During the course of the match, the referee would be accidentally knocked out allowing F.E.A.R. to viciously assault Gresham. However, John Silver arrived in an attempt to even the sides. However, the numbers game still proved to be too much. But when Dan Barry went to use a chair on Gresham, Gresham ducked and Barry struck Gacy! This allowed Gresham to walk away with the victory.
Following the match, Barry knew he messed up big. He quickly offered his spot in Best of the Best 17 to Gacy as a sign of repentance. Gacy accepted the gesture, but it wasn’t enough and he had Reynolds and Blackwater attack Barry. Gacy would leave Barry in a heap after he drove him down on to a set of SEVEN steel chairs!
Rickey Shane Page & Alex Colon def. Conor Claxton & Maxwell Jacob Friedman
This match saw MJF avoid any physical confrontation with the reigning World Champion. Friedman would actually walk away from the match and allow Claxton to take both Colon and RSP’s finishers, ultimately losing the match for his team.
Brandon Kirk def. Matt Tremont
Following the match, Tremont while still stuck in the barbed wire webbing proclaimed Kirk the future of the Combat Zone. Tremont begged Kirk to alway fly the CZW flag high as his time in the ring is nearing its end.
