Tag Team Partners Skarekro & Skavenger were seen distraught in their lockeroom. It was announced that while drafting opponents for the Opening Round, somehow Skarekro & Skavenger were selected to face each other in singles competition.

Skarekro asked Skavenger to willingly lose his match tonight so that he could advance in the tournament. Skavenger told Skarekro that it was not in the T.W.O.'s tradition for tag partners to lay down for each other.

Lazaroth had trouble getting his Dominion members to do it in 1999. Sinsyde had trouble getting the Hell's Faction to do it in 2001 & 2002. And Skavenger would not do it in 2003.

Skarekro said that was fine, but he would not hold anything back. Skarekro warned Skavenger not to take what happens in the ring tonight personally because it could be the worst beating of Skavenger's career.
Superbman  vs.  Arachnid
Last week Superbman and Arachnid competed in tag action. Tonight they competed in singles tournament action. The more experienced Arachnid came out victorious.

Winner:  Arachnid
Bad Boy Barrett, manager of the AssassiNation congratulated Nymphous Fornicate on his win earlier tonight. Barrett then announced that because tonight was a special occasion, he would step out of his managerial role and return to competition as he put his name in for a chance at the World Title.
Stryknieghn  vs.  Blaze
Stryknieghn feels that he is the uncrowned World Champion but made a vow to prove it to the World by winning the Heavyweight Title. He began his quest by defeating Blaze.

Winner:  Stryknieghn
Paramecium, the CEO of the T.W.O. and one of only 2 men to become Triple Crown Champion, announced that he would face Santino in the last of 8 Opening Round matches tonight.

Paramecium said that he admired Santino for taking this opportunity to show his stuff in competition for the World Title even though doctors had advised against it.

"When the night is over," Paramecium said, "you will have proven yourself to be daring and also stupid. Returning to action so soon after your last defeat, and against a competitor like myself, is career suicide."
John Cynic  vs.  Bad Boy Barrett
Barrett, the manager of the AssassiNation, entered the ring once again for a chance at the World Title. Newcomer John Cynic turned out to be more than Barrett could handle.

Winner:  John Cynic
Supply & Demand a.k.a. Arabian Pimpman and Crack-Edd cut an interview. Crack-Edd apologized for his loss earlier in the evening. Pimpman said their is nothing wrong with losing a match every now and then.

Pimpman said his match tonight will have more on the line anyway. Not only will his pride be on the line, but also a Chance to win a belt which has eluded him for the past 6 years.

Why is his pride on the line tonight? Because tonight he would be facing the man that took his former head hoe Sugar Kooky. Tonight Pimpman wouldn't be fighting his woman, because she didn't want him anymore. Instead he would be fighting for honor as he attempts to show her that leaving him was a mistake.
