We have NEW Tag Team Champions in Michael Shard and Spencer Powers. When Guy Smith was unable to make the event, due to scheduling conflict, Spencer Powers was able to pick any partner of his choosing. That stipulation created the loophole that Michael Shard (who was on a two year ban for title contention) needed. And after outlasting the strong showing of the former champions (Tom Arson and Ryan Phoenix), the breakthrough performance of the Full Metal Jackals (Danny Cannon and Alex Castle), and the proud determination of LOGANTYRE (Eric Logan and Justin MacIntyre), Attitude Inc. came out on top and we have NEW New Midwest Wrestling Tag Team Champions!

Prime Time Playa, Bobby Houston came into his match with rising star Christian Rose a little too cocky, and it cost him. One sharp Roaring Elbow to the jaw, knocked him on his butt, and down for the three-count.

And in the Main Event, Jonathan Magnus pulled out all the stops to retain his New Midwest Wrestling Championship against the Apex, Blake Steel. After an extreme catfight, a chairshot heard throughout the halls of Lanphier High School, and interference from the returning Eric Ruffington, Blake Steel was unable to reach his goal of becoming champion. Magnus is counting his blessings after the near upset to Steel.
