Commissioner Dustin Baker, Chris O'Neal, Stan Lee and Christian Jacobs come out to address the crowd of about 125. Commissioner Baker said that he asked Christian Jacobs, Chris O'Neal, Stan Lee and Jon Michael to film some footage for some upcoming EWE events. He points to the screen and says that this is what happened. Audio starts to play, but due to technical difficulties, the video didn't show. Commissioner Baker then says that he will explain what happened. He says that during the shoot, there was a vicious attack on Jon Michael by Scott Adams. The condition of Jon Michael isn't known at this time, but Baker says that he will keep everyone up to date on his condition as soon as it becomes available. Chris O'Neal grabs the mic and says Scott Adams will pay, and if Jon Michael doesn't get ahold of him, he will. Christian Jacobs grabs the mic and says that the act Scott Adams did was a cowardly act. He says that if Jon doesn't take him out, that C.J will bring him down. Everyone exits the arena as the show begins.
Michael Gilbert def. Kid Nikels via pinfall. K.C. Gold joined Mark Tipton at ringside before the match, and goes to the ring to give Gilbert a business card, but Michael tears it up and throws it back at Gold.
The video of the attack on Jon Michael plays on the big screen Go to www.elitewrestlingentertainment.com to view the attack footage.
A group of 4 people enter the ring. It us unknown where they are from, but they look like a group of bikers. As Mark Tipton begins to interview one of them, the lights go out and a video plays on the screen introducing Genocide as they make their way to the ring. They say it's unfortunate that they have to interrupt their party, but Genocide holds a little weight around the EWE, so if they have something to say, they say it. They say they lost sight on something last time they were there, but this time it's going to be different, and they're going to be the ones holding the tag team titles. The Albino Rhino says that if anyone doesn't know by know, they are Genocide, then says that the group of bikers look like some rough and tough guys, then Maxx and Rhino start attacking the bikers. After they beat everyone out of the ring, they exit the arena as the bikers are assisted out.

----I liked the angle with Jon Michael, but it makes no sense when he is wrestling just down the road in Newbern for NBW. If he was going to take some time off, then the injury thing is good, but since it is reported here and other web sites that he wrestled in NBW it just makes it silly...Who were the Bikers?? That was an odd angle??...I got a chance to watch White vs Lee. A little slow in the front from two of the top four ranked workers in the RRO Top 10. All psychology with Lee getting a lot of shine with White running away. Not my favorite kind of match, but the crowd was hot - just all pure psychology getting the match over. [A lost art that these two guys can do] I have seen White in this building before and he got tons of heat. Pace picked up when White started heat. Garry tripped Lee to start it. Finish had Garry involved and them choking Lee after bout. Melton making the save and the teacher/student angle will be good. The stuff with White in Melton’s face at the end was very good....This group also is planning to run the following shows...
Friday, April 3rd - Brownsville Rec Center (Old Ntl. Guard Armory) Brownsville, TN
Thursday, April 9th - Waverly, TN
Friday, April 17th - Lexington, TN
Friday, April 24th - McKenzie, TN*
----I hope they do better than LAW in the same building in Brownsville. I think LAW had 5 paid customers. Waverly and Lexington have not drawn good crowds in a long time either.
