Billy McNeil and Dash Rando kicked off the night with an entertaining contest, featuring the slow-motion sequence. At one point during the bout, McNeil and Rando ended up under the ring, with the referee following suit. McNeil and Rando returned unscathed, but the referee emerged wearing a bumblebee suit. Rando came up short on this exchange, as McNeil sealed the victory.
LWA Champion “Spitfire” Davey Vega and Shorty Biggs took on the Submission Squad’s Pierre Abernathy and Adam Raw. With the stipulation set that the Submission Squad had to wear dresses to the LWA No Restrictions show on May 15 if they were to lose, Abernathy and Raw were determined to emerge victorious. In the back and forth contest, Biggs and Vega snuck out a win as Vega pinned Raw.
Former LWA Champion K.C. Karrington made his return to LWA immediately following the match and demanded a shot at Vega’s championship since he never lost the belt in a contested match. LWA President Tim Alley allowed the challenge and Karrington was set to face Vega later in the evening.
Tyler Cook then faced Evan Gelistico. These two men put on one of the best matches of the night, taking the fight outside the ring. Gelistico had hit Cook with a chain out of sight of the referee and appeared to have won the match. However, in the aftermath, the referee found the chain and reversed the decision.
“Spoiled” Steven Kennedy took on Gary the Nightowl. In the back and forth contest, both men had their moments to shine, but Gary’s cheating ways kept him a slight step ahead. However, Kennedy fought back valiantly and won the bout. Moments after the match ended, Dorian Victor emerged with a woman, claiming that they were Gary’s parents.
Gorgeous Jordan and Super Electro went at it next. Electro had the upper hand early on, but Jordan was able to turn the tide and get the win, despite interference from Biggs.
Vega and Karrington battled for the LWA championship in the main event. Both men brought everything they could fathom to the bout, and there were multiple nearfalls. However, Vega appeared to remain one step ahead of the returning Karrington. Vega retained the belt, and he and Karrington shook hands after the match. In spite of this, Karrington expressed frustration with his inability to defeat Vega.
