286. Jason James & Mr. Tennessee (w/ April) (#7) vs 'Double A' Arnold & A.J. Adams (#10)

Referee: Marcus Moreland
Jason starts off the match with a cheap shot to A.J. Once he loses the upper hand, he scampers off to the corner and refuses to be tagged in again. Arnold

287. Travis Canby (#14) vs Troy Canby (#17)

Referee: Mark Bronson
Mark requested to referee this sparring match between the brothers. He was most biased in his officiating. He worked with both wrestlers to try to push their singles wrestling ability even further. Troy finally got the pin with an arm drag taking his brother off the middle turnbuckle.
Decision: Troy Canby (pin), 4:09 (10-minute time limit)

288. Joe Blow (w/ Boss Crump) (#16) vs Argonaut I (w/ Jason James) (#15)

Referee: Marcus Moreland
Joe jumped on top of #1 as he came to the ringside area. The two battled on the outside until Moreland could coax them into the ring. He called for the bell and Joe continued to keep control. Hitting Joe the Plumber, he got the pin.
Decision: Joe Blow (pin), 1:58 (15-minute time limit)

289. Chad 'Flame' Young (w/ Boss Crump) (#11) vs Argonaut II (w/ Jason James) (#8)

Referee: Marty Gentz

Decision: Chad Young (disqualification), 0:27 (15-minute time limit)

290. 'Sensational' Seth Greeley (#10) vs 'Double A' Arnold Adams (#7)

291. 'Disco' Dominic Donovan (w/ Boss Crump) (#9) vs 'Nature Boy' Nate Harris (#5)

292. 'Excellent' Xavier Cross (w/ Amy Andrews) (#3) vs Mr. Mississippi (#2)

293. Mississippi State Heavyweight Title Match: 'Mr. Electricity' Steve Regal (#6)vs Grappler (#1) (champion) - Match Text

Referee: Marty Gentz
Steve gained his first major wrestling title with this match. Many thought Grappler should have won it. Others thought he had thrown the match completely. Whether either was true, Steve turned out to be the better wrestler that night.
Decision: Steve Regal (pin), 34:30 (60-minute time limit) NEW CHAMPION
