Elkmania Tournament Semi Finals:

-Elkmania promoter Ryan Andrews conducted an interview with Project Zero Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, Stevie James about his main event title defense against Derek Simonetti.

Elkmania Tournament Semi Finals:
Richy (Sic) pinned Jon Wilson after delivering the Richual in the center of the ring for the 1-2-3. Wilson shook Richy’s hand after the match.
–“All Good” Anthony Greene was jumped by “Maniacal” Jack Kruger and “The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed before his match could begin as they blinded sided him by running through the crowd. Greene fought them off as long as he could but the numbers game was just too much. Kruger vowed the hands of fate would deliver vengeance upon Elkmania for not booking him and his disciples.

“The Original Showoff” Mike Paiva defeated Firecat via count out when he took a ball of yarn from an unsuspecting event staffer and threw it and Firecat chased the yarn out of the room.

Elkmania Tournament Finals:
Richy (Sic) defeated “The Wrestling Machine” Tommy Corbin to become the first Elkmania Tournament Champion when he confused Corbin and planted him with a Richual for the victory. Post-match action saw referee Mike Pono deliver a stunner to Corbin after several warnings not to be touched.
Tag Team Action:
“Maniacal” Jack Kruger and “The Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed defeated “It’s All Good” Anthony Greene & “Tough Talk” Tony Spencer when Kruger pinned Greene. This match was made by Elkmania promoter, Atlee Greene after Kurger & Creed interrupted a moment where we were thanking our event sponsors.
Project Zero Wrestling Heavyweight Championship:
Stevie James defeated Derek Simonetti to retain the PZW title when James reversed a spinebuster attempt into a DDT to get the 1-2-3.
