-Singapore Cane Match: Thom Latimer vs. Fodder:
These two waste no time getting the canes. However, Fodder runs away until Latimer catches him. Fodder eventually catches Latimer coming off the top with the cane between the eyes. Fodder works over Latimer, including a Russian leg sweep with the cane. Fodder measures Latimer for a big shot and breaks the cane on Latimer’s back.
Foddder misses a giant cane shot in the corner and gets dropped by a flurry of punches by Latimer. Latimer is still in a lot of pain as he favors his mid-section. Latimer takes the cane away from Fodder and measures him for the mother of all cane shots to the back. Latimer follows up with a spike piledriver and a crossface with the cane in Fodder’s mouth. Fodder has no choice but to tap.
Winner: Thomas Latimer
-Backstage Interview w/ Matt Cardona
Cardona said he came back in record time from his injury and should have been given the title back the moment he returned. He credited himself for the sold-out crowd tonight and objected to Bully Ray being on commentary during the main event.
-NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion: Kerry Morton (c) w/ Ricky Morton vs. Alex Taylor w/ Danny Dealz
Some nice back-and-forth wrestling to open up this one, with Morton gaining the advantage, including a nice crossbody and some deep arm drags that would make Ricky Steamboat proud. Morton comes out of the corner with a nice dropkick. Morton suplexes Taylor out of the ring, and both slug it out on the apron. Taylor and Morton trade chops until Morton hits an impaler DDT on the apron.
Taylor is thrown back in the ring, and Danny Dealz grabs Morton’s leg. Morton goes after Dealz, and Taylor takes advantage of the distraction and connects with a suicide dive. Both wrestlers are back in the ring, and Taylor is in control. Taylor delivers a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and follows up with a high back body drop.
Morton comes back with a monkey flip, but Taylor returns the favor with a fisherman’s neckbreaker. Ricky Morton prevents Danny Dealz from getting weapons out from under the ring with a big overhand right. Taylor hits Cradle Shock for a close nearfall, and Morton comes back with a powerbomb and the Kiss Goodbye for near fall. Morton escapes another Cradle Shock attempt and hits the side effect for the win.
This one was great while it lasted.
Winner: Kerry Morton
–Kratos vs. Thrillbilly Silas w/ Pollo Del Mar
This is a rematch from a few weeks ago, where Kratos beat Thrillbilly. Kratos tried jumping Thrillbilly but walked into an overhand right. Kratos threw Thrillbilly out of the ring and followed up with a tope over the top rope. Kratos delivered a belly-to-back suplex on the apron.

Kratos was a first person to kick out of the move.
Kratos misses a splash in the corner and goes face-first into the exposed turnbuckle he removed earlier. Kratos is busted open. Crimson mask, pool of blood, it all applies. Thrillbilly goes for a head and arm triangle choke, and the referee stops the match. There are going to have to take some time to clean up the blood in the ring.

-EC3 vs. “The Rare Breed” Kevin Kiley Jr.
It was announced earlier today that EC3 has signed with the NWA, while this match marks Kiley’s debut in the promotion. Kiley doesn’t look like a wrestler, wearing a gray NWA t-shirt, black jeans, and pristine white tennis shoes. He looks like a fan who is borrowing someone’s elbow pads. Apparently, he’s been away from the game for six years.
EC3 is in control in the early going, using his power to knock Kiley down. Commentary keeps asking if EC3 made this made to motivate Kiley? Kiley hits a splash in for corner and goes for another one, but EC3 lifts him up high, causing Kiley to hit his head on the post. EC3 hits a snap suplex and keeps asking Kiley, “Are you going to embarrass yourself again?”
EC3 puts the boots on Kiley, almost a Garvin Stomp. Kiley escapes a camel clutch and drops EC3 with a couple of clotheslines. Kiley goes for a running dive over the rope, but his foot gets caught and completely wiped out. EC3 had no chance to catch him as Kiley hit the floor hard. After some time, EC3 carefully gets Kiley back in the ring, locks in head and arm crossface submission, and Kiley taps immediately.
-NWA World Tag Team Championship: La Rebelión (Mecha Wolf & Bestia 666) (c) vs. Blunt Force Trauma (Damage & Carnage) w/ Aaron Stevens

Carnage tags back in and goes for a vertical suplex, but Bestia knees him in the head and escapes with an inside cradle for two.

BFT gets sent outside the ring, and La Rebelión a pair of dives over the top rope. Aaron Stevens drills Bestia and Mecha Wolf with a loaded glove.

-NWA National Heavyweight Championship: The Great Cyon (c) w/ Austin Idol vs. Homicide

Mentions Flordia Championship Wrestling, Mike Graham, Eddie Graham, The Briscoes, and Dusty Rhodes. He says he is lying about being back in Tampa, and the people stink.
Homicide goes right after Cyon at the bell and throws him around for a bit until Idol grabs Cyon’s leg and pulls him out of harm’s way. Cyon pulls Homicide out of the ring, but Homicide chops away at Cyon and tries to rip off Cyon’s mask. Homicide hits Cyon with repeated buckle shots and locks in the Brooklyn Bridge (Boston Crab).

–NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship – No Seconds Allowed At Ringside: Tyrus (c) vs. Matt Cardona
Bully Ray comes out for commentary, makes a lap around the ring, grabs the mic, and yells twice, “IT FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK IN TAMPA FLORDIA, BABY!’
The question is whether Bully will interfere after Cardona beat him down in the ECW Arena a few weeks ago. Cardona came out first wearing spiked shoulder pads and wrist gauntlets. Bully says he doesn’t think Cardona has a chance against Tyrus. Referee gives instructions and takes way too long with some speech and asks if champion and challenger have any questions. Tyrus asks, “When are you gonna ring the bell?”
Tyrus threw Cardona down face-first to open things. Cardona rolls outside and sells his nose. They lock up, and Tyrus delivers an arm drag and drops Cardona with a shoulder tackle. Cardona rolls out of the ring again. Cardona heads to the commentary table and yells at Bully Ray. Tyrus catches him and throws him back in the ring. Cardona kicks the middle rope between the legs as Tyrus gets back into the ring.
Cardona hits a missile dropkick for a two count and starts working over Tyrus’ legs. Cardona ducks a clothesline and dropkicks Tyrus’s leg, sending the big man down. So far, this is a slow and methodical match where Cardona is carefully picking his spots against Tyrus. Cardona hits a neck breaker but doesn’t get all of it, as Tyrus fell before Cardona can complete the rotation. Tyrus kicked out at one.
Cardona continues to work over Tyrus’s leg and applies the figure four leg lock. After several minutes, Tyrus turns it over while grabbing the ropes. Tyrus swats Cardona from the top rope, hitting a body slam and a big splash. Tyrus misses a big splash in the corner, and Cardona hits three reboots in a row, but Tyrus kicked out at two.
Cardona grabs the belt and brings it into the ring. Cardona pushed the referee as he tried to take it away from him. Tyrus goes for the heart punch, and Cardona moves; the referee goes down. Rolando comes in with a chair and hits Tyrus. It doesn’t phase him. Tyrus almost t-bones Rolando out of the ring.
Cardona hits Tyrus with the belt and hits a DDT. The referee is back up, and Tyrus kicks out at two. Tyrus accidentally splashes the referee in the corner, and out comes Mike Knox, who hits a running crossbody and grabs the bell. Bully Ray sends Knox into the steel steps. Cardona is yelling at Bully until he walks into the Tongan death grip of Tyrus. Tyrus choke slams Cardona with the grip for the pin.
Winner #AndStill NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion: Tyrus
Black Jeez came out to celebrate with Tyrus. Jeez goes to give the belt to Tyrus, but Bully cuts him off and grabs the belt. Bully presents the title to Tyrus and cuts a promo on how people need to respect Tyrus, whether they like him or not. Tyrus said that means a lot coming from Bully because he was one of the names he respected.
Tyrus thanked Bully for having his back and said he would give Bully a title shot anytime, anywhere he wanted. However, to make it clear, they are not friends.
Fade to black.
