What Has Gone Before

A long time in coming, CSWA15 marks the o-fish-al return of the company to full-time status. CSWA owner Chad Merritt has declared that this may be the final chance that some of the veterans have to show their worth, as he gets ready to introduce some "new blood" to the CSWA, a la 1998.

Mark Windham's World Title reign has ended, replaced by "The Ego Buster" Dan Ryan. A rematch for the title was scratched by Merritt after two incidents got too close to the fans, one injuring a fan and resulting in the largest fine in CSWA history for Mark Windham. Windham's spot as the challenger was put up for grabs in a six-man match pitting The Intruders versus the CSWA faithful. In the end, Presidential and Unified Tag Team Champion Eddie Mayfield's continued harassing and attempts to screw Shane Southern backfired, putting Southern in the challenger's seat against Ryan at CSWA15. It's the N'awlins native and his Party's Over superkick, against the size and strength of the Ego Buster, defending his gold belt. Oh, and by the way... Roofed Steel Cage just to guarantee no interference.

Mark Windham, instead, tries to sort out just who has been turning the lights out on him and leaving him laying. His target? Eli Flair. The King of Extreme says it's not his style, but "The Living Psycho" won't be turned away, especially not with Ivy in the mix. Body bags have already appeared in the middle of the ring once... but are they already occupied, or will they end up that way?

Mike Randalls shortly after BATTLE of the BELTS has led him to challenge all-comers, but especially Evan Aho. Randalls apparently has guilt over his actions of several years ago, and has pulled the previously inactive Unified World Championship out of the mothballs, arguing that he wants to give it a real sendoff, wrestle for it against someone deserving, and put his past behind him. But that doesn't solve Randalls' very current problems with Chad Merritt.

The Intruders have run roughshod over the CSWA, capturing two major titles and almost getting a shot at the World Title here at ANNIVERSARY. The loss of GUNS following a fall-out didn't seem to slow them down, as Miles and Mayfield targeted anyone and everyone they could. Merritt promised to throw them a surprise title defense at CSWA15. JJ DeVille, a former Intruders target, showed up and revealed himself as one-half of the tag team. And, just moments before the event at the pre-show ON TIME, former CSWA World Champion and "Mr. CSWA" Troy Windham showed up as the other half of the team.

Mayfield also has to keep his eyes peeled for Steel Viper, the man who not only wants his Presidential Title, but revenge for the Intruders dumping him in a laundry basket and pushing him off onto the concrete. Viper already took his frustrations out on Shamon, an Intruders lackey, earlier at ON TIME.

Former champions Hornet and Tom Adler may be putting their legacies on the line at CSWA15. Following BATTLE of the BELTS, Hornet admitted that he had voluntarily gone into treatment for an addiction to painkillers. At the contract signing in Chicago for their United States Title match, Adler suckerpunched Hornet. The brawl ended up with Hornet bloody in a corner as Adler shoved a bottle of pills in his mouth. The history between these two goes back to 1991 and the creation of the Unified Title. To say they could care less about each other might be an understatement. Another one would be saying that they don't care about their legacy in the sport.

Jean Rabesque got in Kin Hiroshi's face over and over again on his way to taking the Greensboro Championship away from the Muffin Man. The two have jawed back and forth for months, and finally, the rematch happens in front of 23,000 strong in the Merritt Auditorium.

And, as there always are, there might be a few surprises popping up. Something old, something new... but no wedding this time, so we'll skip the borrowed and blue. Instead, maybe red's a good color...
