ASWF opens the show on March 27, 2010 with the National Anthem.
We Started off the night with the announcement of our new majority owner, Ms. Betty Butler. She stated that alot of changes were fixing to take place! The first thing she did is make next Saturday's show completely FREE!!! And she is bringing in the Mighty Midgets for it. Next, she announced that beginning on April 9th @ 1:00a.m., ASWF will be airing on KAIT-8! She stated that there are more surprises to come with her in charge!
This was a match between "Hot Rod" John Ellison and the European Champion, Lee Michaels. Throughout this entire contest Hot Rod continued to push the rules and challenge the ref until finally the ASWF Commissioner, Ricky Rowland came out and called him on it. As Hot Rod was standing there arguing with Commissioner Rowland, Lee Michaels surprised him with the roll up pin from behind and got the 1,2,3. This takes Lee Michaels undefeated streak to 16 weeks here at ASWF.
Winner: Lee Michaels
In this bout we had Dante Cain vs. "Prime Time" Kevin Charles. During this match Kevin showed us that he has an excellent technical background while Dante Cain was showcasing his mixed martial arts background. It was back and forth with Cain bending the rules when it suited him. After several near falls for both contenders, Cain secured the victory by using the ropes for extra leverage to pin Charles.
Winner: Dante Cain
This match was Enforcer and Casino. This match was full of dirty tricks at every turn. The Enforcer choked Casino with the chain that Casino always wears in his matches, rubbed his eyes across the ropes, and hit him with closed fists every time he got him near a corner. The ref finally saw this as The Enforcer was in the corner using his Enforcement stick to pummel Casino in the midsection. The ref then promptly disqualified Enforcer. Winner: Casino
We were about to go to intermission when some familiar music that we haven't heard in a while hit. Out of the curtain stepped none other than "Iron" Mike Anthony. The crowd was hostile towards him and kept telling him to go back where he came from. Anthony said he came back to grace us with his presence for one reason, to take out Austin Lane. Anthony made the comment that Lane wasn't even a good enough wrestler to lace up his boots. To say that the crowd was hostile at this point is an understatement. Austin chants went up all over the building. Anthony said that they could chant all they wanted too, nothing was gonna stop him from destroying Austin Lane.
Just as T-Bone Terrance Ward was about to start the 2nd half of the show, Austin Lane's music hit. The place erupted. Austin came out and took to the center of the ring. Austin announced that tonight was very special night because not only did we get a new owner, it would be the last night with T-Bone Terrance Ward as our live commentator. Austin proceeded to thank Terrance for all his wonderful contributions to this promotion and then stated that Terrance wouldn't be leaving ASWF completely, just moving up in the ranks to join the production team for ASWF's new TV show. As Austin bowed and the chant of "Thank You Terrance" went up, it was a very emotional moment for several in the ASWF.
This was a Tag Team Title match with CM2 taking on CCR, the team of Wild Bill and Demon X. This contest had several twists and turns. It was looking like the Champs were in danger of losing their belts at several points during this match, until Cason McClain got outside of the ring and brought a steel chair in. Cason hit Wild Bill and just as Cason was getting ready to use the chair on Demon X, Austin Lane came out and speared him. The ref called for the bell and disqualified CM2 for the use of the chair. McClain then issued a challenge to Austin Lane stating that Lane stuck his nose into CM2's business and he would pay in a no DQ match later tonight. Lane accepted.
The semi-main event placed Johnny Hawk against Seth Sabor. Seth took control in the opening minutes of this contest to the point of Johnny Hawk begging off in the corner. Once Johnny Hawk got some momentum going, he turned this match around. After several turns in this match, Hawk finally secured the pin over Sabor. Winner: Johnny Hawk
The main event of the night is the much anticipated battle between CM2's Cason McClain vs. Austin Lane for the ASWF Heavyweight Championship. This is a no disqualification match and McClain is accompanied to the ring by Athena Eclipse and his tag team partner " Big Rig" Cody Murdoch. This is a good solid bout with McClain and Lane both being excellent technical wrestlers. However, we can't disregard Murdoch on the outside of the ring. There were several times during this match when it was as if Lane were facing these 2 competitors in a handicap match. As they attempted to double team Lane in this match using powder to his eyes, Lane surprised them by kicking their hands and sending the powder flying into CM2's eyes. As Murdoch went to Flatbed Lane, he accidently picked up McClain and planted him firmly. Lane then speared Murdoch and rolled over to cover McClain for the win. Austin Lane retains the ASWF Heavyweight Championship!
Winner: Austin Lane
