Match 1. The Spartan Warrior, a firm favourite with the fans who recognised his intro music at the first note, was up against Adam Hill a very talented young wrestler. The match was hard fought with both wrestlers displaying awesome talent but the power and experience of the Spartan won the day. Just as the match finished Dean Graves entered the arena and interfered with the post match celebrations taunting the Spartan. Winners' Series Championship. The event continued with a championship style wrestling competiton where the competitors wrestled each other and won or lost points depending on the win, gamesmanship, and behaviour in the ring. The competitors were as follows. Johnny Karnak, Noah Blade, George James Anderson, and the wrestler from parts unknown Bagheera. All competitors gave it their all to get to the final match. Noah Blade took a beating to his leg but bravely came back despite doctors orders to finish his matches but the two who fought in the final of the championship were Bagheera and Johnny Karnak. This proved to be a hard fought match both in and out the ring with Bagheera emerging triumphant to take the win. Match 2. The ever popular Ross Lee against newcomer Vintage Ben Shelly. Shelley vowed to take the sport back to a better time and taunted Lee for his choice of attire. The match was hard fought with both wrestlers having the upper hand at times but the skill and experience of Ross triumphed in the end to take the win. The Winners' Series Championship continued again. Match 3. A tag match with the following wrestlers Anthony Mafia and "Egyptian Buff" Del Rico ( accompanied to the ring by George james Anderson) vs Darryl Flynn and Kid Max. A stunning match with lots of action and the teams being evenly matched with the initiative passing between the teams. Anthony Mafia was singled out for a hard working over as was Kid Max later in the match. This was a skilled and hard fought match with Anthony Mafia and "Egyptian Buff" Del Rico claiming victory but only after Anderson has sprayed something in Kid Max's face. The Winners' Series Championship reached its climax with the match between Bagheera and Johnny Karnak. The trophy was presented by Morgan Black , a WIN regular, who was unable to participate due to illness. The Announcer was the awesome Mr Dan Edge who rocked a sparkly tie the whole event! The referee was Mr Sean Wright, another WIN regular.
