Long Version of the results:

As is tradition with the event, Jeff’s long time friend Milo Beasley came out with the sixteen competitors for the pre-show introductions to present them with a ceremonial medallion.

(1) Louis Lyndon defeated "the Megastar" Marion Fontaine.
This is one of two matches where team members faced off (the other being Fantastico vs. Vortekz.) Early on both men traded armdrags but it appeared Fontaine was caught off guard and slid to a neutral corner. Fontaine got a hammerlock only to be countered eventually taken down a flying head scissor and dropkick which sent him to the floor. Lyndon followed with a plancha but Fontaine moved sending Lyndon to the floor. Fontaine tossed Lyndon back in the ring and the Booty Time began. Lyndon tried to use his martial arts skills but Fontaine grounded him with a body scissor for two. The action briefly went to the floor where Fontaine tried to knock out Lyndon and demanded a countout from the referee. Lyndon beat the count and nearly lost by submission to a rear chinlock. Lyndon fought to his feet and used his martial arts skills to cut Fontaine and his ego down to size. Lyndon went for a move but got hit with a superkick for two. Fontaine went up top and hit a Frog Splash for two. Lyndon tried to keep Fontaine away, kicking Fontaine to the floor and followed with a between ropes tope’. Lyndon’s suplex back in the ring was countered and then countered again. Both men traded punches and kicks but it was Lyndon who won with a lariat like move.

(2) Johnny Gargano defeated Chris Jones.
Jones had the proverbial home field advantage it was obvious Gargano was bothered by it. Gargano tried a test of strength to silence the crowd but Jones got control of it only to be countered. Gargano countered with a punch to the jaw while Jones countered with armdrag takeover an elbow drop onto Gargano’s elbow joint. Gargano countered out with a dropkick and several shots to Jones’ head. Jones fought back with several moves ending with Gargano on the floor and Jones going after him only to see Gargano counter twice and catching Jones with a dropkick to the chest. Gargano kept on the upper body with chest chops and kicks to the ribs. Gargano got two following a gutbuster like move and followed with a clothesline and two sentons for two. Jones tried to recover but got dumped to the floor where Gargano followed and he dropped Jones on the apron face first. After taunting the fans Gargano beat the referee’s count. Gargano went up top but missed his splash. Jones got to his feet first and went on the attack with several hard shots but Gargano fought back only to be hit with a tornado DDT for two. Jones went to end the match with a top rope move but Gargano blocked it and hit a modified neckbreaker and top rope splash for two. Jones tried to fight back as Gargano laid in kicks to the body and he went up top with Jones who fought off a hold and came off with a huricurana like move for two. Jones missed a spinning body press and Gargano quickly rolled him up using the tights for leverage.

(3) Silas Young defeated Hybrid Heavyweight champion "the New Deal" Dave Cole
Early on both men tried controlling the tempo but ended up back at square one. Cole smacked Young and ran for his life around the ring only to be back in the ring getting slapped and clotheslined to the mat. Cole stopped any momentum Young built up by hitting an inverted suplex dropping Young’s mid section on the top rope. Cole went to work on the injured area with submission holds. Young fought back with body shots only to be hit with a belly to belly release toss. Cole kept the heat on Young with an elbow to the chest for two and followed with a backbreaker which he held for a submission attempt. Young fought out hitting a jawbreaker and several turnbuckle shots only to be hit with a kick to the gut. Young fought off a Tornado DDT dumping Cole to the mat. Both men fought to their feet and it was Young who was the aggressor with chest chops and a backbreaker into a clothesline for two. Young went for a bodyblock but was hit with a dropkick to the chest which got Cole a two count. Cole went for a move only to be countered but he countered back into a Liger Driver style move for two. Cole went up top and dragged Young up with him for a double underhook but Young countered with a backdrop and followed with a bodyblock for two. Cole locked Young in a STF style submission but Young fought out and hit a kick to Cole’s face. Young hit a rolling Samoan Drop and followed with a spinning bodyblock for the hard fought win.

(4) Jon Moxley defeated FIP Heritage champion Brad Attitude.
For no reason whatsoever Moxley attacked a member of the FIP ringside security and then went after the camera crew. Attitude waited in the ring not sure how to handle this and eventually he slapped the taste out of Moxley’s mouth. Moxley seemed to settle down and began wrestling with shoulder blocks but Attitude took him down with several armdrags into an armbar. Moxley fought back with chops and forearms which knocked the wind out of Attitude for a moment. Attitude fought back with a cross body block for two but his shoulder block missed Moxley and hit the ringpost. Moxley followed to the floor where he kept on the shoulder with kicks. Back in the ring Moxley tried to dislocate the shoulder socket with a stretch and knee drops. Attitude fought back with a clothesline to the floor and the match nearly became a brawl with both men using the ring post and barricades as weapons. Attitude took over with a tope’ to the floor which nearly knocked Moxley out. Back in the ring Attitude went up top but Moxley made him crotch on the top. Moxley kept working on the injured shoulder with a overhand wristlock but didn’t get the tap out. Moxley tried for a test of strength style pin but Attitude fought to his feet but Moxley got in a cheap kick only to be leveled with a dropkick. With only his right arm to use Attitude fought off Moxley as best he could with a neckbreaker and senton for two. Moxley fought back with a lariat but got only two as he took too long going for the pin. Moxley laid Attitude in the ring and went up top but his elbow drop only met ring apron. Attitude got two with a move but Moxley went back to the arm with an armbar and locked in the Crossface Chicken Wing submission to advance.

(5) Bumz R' Us (Milo Beasley/Ray Beez/Milo Bearsley) won the Pro Wrestling Riot Tag Team championship rumble. All this came about after Shawn Osborne’s retirement, Pro Wrestling Riot officials declared the tag team titles vacant. The other Tag Team Rumble Participants included:

FIP Tag Team Champions the British Lions (Christopher Gray/Tommy Taylor), Dark City Fight Club (Kory Chavis/Jon Davis w/Leva), Heartbreak Express ("Superstar" Sean/"Fabulous" Phil Davis w/Amy Vitale), The Shane Twins (Mike & Todd), 2 Fast 2 Furious (Nooie Lee/Jerrelle Clark), The Loggers (Mighty Dagon/Lumberjack Manley), The James Boys (Luke & Rich) Kahagas & The Blackheart, Tony Kozina & Kyle O'Reilly.

During the match the DCFC tossed the Bumz to the floor but they tossed them under the ropes not over the top. The Shane’s and the DCFC were considered eliminated when they fought to the locker room. The Loggers, HBX and British Lions were remaining and the Bumz remained on the floor. The Lions got rid of the Loggers and the HBX/Lions celebrated, well Tommy Taylor didn’t as he still despises the Express. They asked Chris Gray to eliminate himself as Taylor protested. Sean Davis berated Taylor into letting Gray go slapping him in the face. When Taylor fired a slap back he fell back into Gray on the apron. This caused Gray to be eliminated. As the Express partied in the ring, Bumz R’ Us snuck back in and tossed the Express out to win. As the celebration went on, referees had to keep the Lions from fighting each other.

(6) Shane Hollister defeated Flip Kendrick.
Hollister tried to intimidate Kendrick with some slaps to the face but Kendrick countered an armbar into one of his own only to be countered back. Kendrick hit a Lucha style armdrag which sent Hollister to the floor to rethink things. He came back into the ring and kicked Kendrick square in the gut and followed with forearms which were returned in kind. Kendrick hit a springboard huricurana followed by a dropkick to the face which got him two. Kendrick went up but Hollister cut him off and dropkicked Kendrick to the floor. Hollister followed to the floor and was met with a chop but Hollister hit what looked like a STO into the ring apron. The match came back to the ring where Hollister kept the punishement going with a modified abdominal stretch but couldn’t get the submission. Kendrick fought back as Hollister kept the fight coming to him, hitting a standing reverse 450 splash. Kendrick hit a pedigree style move but got two. Kendrick got too close and Hollister hit a jawbreaker and countered a flip by Flip with a running boot to the face. Both men were off their feet and it looked close to a double countout when they got to their vertical base when Kendrick dumped Hollister to the floor and Kendrick followed with a spinning corkscrew press. Both men struggled back to the ring but Kendrick tossed Hollister in and hit a suplex into a knee to the neck for two. Hollister went up top but Kendrick got his knees up into the Frog Splash. Kendrick decided to go up top but his corkscrew press got only two. Kendrick got close to victory but it was a spinning kick from Hollister that got the victory.

(7) TJ Perkins defeated AAW Heritage champion "the Anarchist" Arik Cannon.
Perkins wanted a handshake and he got one then he got attacked from behind by Cannon. Cannon tried to keep up with the speed of Perkins and it worked for a bit as he fought to slow down Perkins with body shots. Perkins’ chest began to welt up from the body shots as he fired in a leg lariat to Cannon. Perkins hit a huricurana which sent Cannon to the floor and when Perkins went to follow, Cannon was waiting with an attack but his chest chop met the ring post. The fight went back to the ring where Perkins hit a top rope bodyblock for two. Perkins went to work on the injured hand with and kept the right hand occupied in a stretch. Cannon backed Perkins to a corner where there was no clean break but an elbow to the face. Perkins fought back with another head shot but a running dropkick to the corner missed and Perkins got stuck in the second rope. Cannon hit a dropkick to Perkins and a standing suplex followed after. Cannon kept hitting body shots and the welt rose even more on Perkins’ body. Cannon hit an enziguri for two and the frustration began to rise in "the Anarchist." Cannon locked in a mat based body stretch but Perkins refused to tap out. Instead he fought out of the hold hitting Cannon with a boot to the face only to be power bombed into the corner and Cannon followed with another power move for two. Cannon’s suplex was countered by Perkins into one of his own and it left both men trying to get their breath. Cannon was hit with several high impact moves in and out of the ring by Perkins which led to him hitting Cannon with hangman’s neckbreaker for what looked to be three but the referee saw Cannon’s foot on the ropes and ordered the match to continue. Cannon’s Burning Hammer led to a lariat for two. Cannon went for another lariat but Perkins avoided it and locked in a Cloverleaf like submission for the tap out victory.

(8) Egotistico Fantastico defeated Scotty Vortekz.
This was the other intra-promotional match of the opening round and both men decided to show the fans what CZW was about. It appeared CZW is about high flying action because both men went to end the match in the opening minutes. Vortekz went for a suicide dive but got kicked in the head by Ego. Ego tossed Vortekz into the ring barrier so hard that Vortekz cleared it and landed in the audience. Ego went for his ring cape and with it attached he hit a leaping elbow drop into the prone Vortekz who was left sitting in a folding chair. They fought back to the ring with chest chops and punches to the head. Ego got two as Vortekz tried to figure a way to slow down Ego. It happened when he countered a Burrito move with a Japanese armdrag and a body shot for two. Vortekz laid in the chest chops to Ego making it echo through the building. Vortekz showed he could high fly with flips and flying kicks to Ego’s body. Ego fought back using his head literally but he got locked in a headlock. Ego fought out only to be hit with a dropkick for two. Ego fired in some kicks to the head and chest which got him two. Ego hit a discus punch which sent Vortekz to the floor and he followed him out to deliver more chest chops. Both men were nearly counted out but beat the count as Ego wanted to end the match via pinfall. Both men fought for position countering each other’s finishing holds and it was Ego who got decked by two kicks to the back from Vortekz. Vortekz went for a move but got caught in Ego’s Taco Pizza submission into pin combo but somehow Vortekz kicked out of the pin. Ego dropped Vortekz on the top rope and followed up for a move but Vortekz countered out with a headbutt which sent Ego to the floor. Vortekz came off with a full flip which leveled Ego. Both men again were dangerously close to countout losses but they beat the count and fought on trading forearms to the jaw. Ego hit a slam and went up but got slapped in the head by Vortekz who came off with Ego in a spinning slam for two. Vortekz got to his feet and he delivered several forearms to the jaw but he went to the ropes instead of the pin and it cost him as Ego hit a modified Cop Killer to win and advance. After the match both men shook hands and received a standing ovation.

(9) FIP World Heavyweight champion Davey Richards defeated CZW World Heavyweight champion Drake Younger.
In the opening ceremony these two men traded verbal insults and they traded stares during the introductions. The hard hitting style of both men came out at the bell as they traded mirror moves only to be standing in the center of the ring at square one. Richards took Younger to the mat only to be countered into a waistlock. Richards countered out into a standing position and actually backed away from Younger letting him get to his feet. Richards went after the left arm while Younger went after the left leg with both men ending up in the ropes. Richards delivered a kick to the back which was returned by Younger who then traded forearm shots that sent Richards to the floor. Richards seemed to have a plan and it slowed Younger down to a crawl. Richards went on the attack but got caught in several armdrags which left him on the mat with Younger holding the left arm. Richards backed Younger to a corner and didn’t give a clean break. Richards ripped at Younger’s face as the referee threatened the DQ. Younger dumped Richards to the floor and followed with a rolling tope’. Younger kept Richards on the defensive with chest chops but Richards fought back. In the ring Younger hit a standing suplex for one. Younger hit a slam and went up but came down jamming his knee on impact. Richards went right to work on the injured left knee with an Indian Deathlock like hold but Younger refused to quit, instead he created a rope break. Richards let the hold go but not the attack on the knees. Richards went for a running clothesline and ran into Younger’s boot. Richards hit a kick to the gut and Younger struggled for breath. Younger got it back but Richards locked in another leg submission but again Younger got to the ropes. Richards dropped Younger on the top corner but got headbutted off and Younger followed him only to miss the Frog Splash and Richards locked in a Cloverleaf but again Younger got to the ropes. Richards was clearly pissed off and this allowed Younger to get his wind and fire back at Richards with punches and kicks and a full nelson suplex for two. Younger kept on the attack with a Burning Hammer like move but he got two. Both men went to end the match as Younger went for a suplex but Richards countered into a Dragon Screw. Richards went up top hitting a missile dropkick and some devastating kicks to the chest of Younger but Richards couldn’t put him away. Younger countered a waistlock and Richards went to the floor where he kicked Younger in the head stopping a suicide dive. Richards went for the kill in the ring with several head shots but got two. He called for the DR Driver but Younger countered into a corner with chest chops. Again both men went up the ropes and got crazy with dueling headbutts. Richards got control and brought them off in a superplex but he couldn’t go for the pin. Both men hit clotheslines, kicks and forearms to the face. Younger got a pin attempt but Richards fought out once more. Younger got to his feet first and Richards got caught with a super Michinoku Driver for two!! Somehow Richards kicked out and countered a Cop Killer. Richards kicked Younger in the arm and hit the DR Driver but Younger kicked out!! Richards frustration reached the roof and he locked in a Cloverleaf which despite his best effort Younger could not escape. After the match Richards took the house mic and was going to address the fans and Younger but instead he handed Younger the CZW belt. Younger declared Richards a true world champion.
