The Monster promised a win, and then said he may just take the championship and go somewhere else, pondering what the GWA would do without a World Champion.

Match of the Night: Doomtrain vs. Testimony of Truth
Magic Ref called out Huge Ref for continuing to run a raunchy show, which he claimed was ruining his legacy. The Hall of Fame official then sadistically grinned and admitted he was responsible for the return of TJH, in an effort to illustrate what it really meant to be raunchy. Mystikal Dragon came out and proclaimed nobody could out-raunch him. The head official in charge of Spotlight forcibly removed Magic Ref from ringside and ordered a Falls Count Anywhere match.

Rockshade thanked the fans for their support through the years. He was disappointed he did not make it back to the main event of Revelation, but did not despair as his career was legendary. Rob Wyatt interrupted, saying he was sick of legends and Hall of Famers stealing the spotlight from the young lions. He had tried to keep Rockshade out of the Tournament of Bruises, and his new mission was putting him out of wrestling. Rockshade declined the confrontation, instead applauding Wyatt for his boldness and saying he'd be watching his Revelation match on Sunday, March 11.
The Killer furiously declared that ever since his embodiment of The Shadows was formed, he was doing all the heavy lifting for the entire family. He then announced he was out of The Shadows and they could fend for themselves.
GWA World Tag Team Champion Johnny Bulldog claimed Huge Ref was abusing his power by refusing Brewer a GWA World Title opportunity. Huge Ref got in Bulldog's face, reminding him of his authority. The tag champion retorted he was the reason Huge Ref was still employed, a comment laughed off by the official. Johnny Bulldog then declared if the stars didn't get to shine on Tuesday Night Spotlight, he'd see to it that Huge would have to fight for his job again.

He then waved to The Second Season Sensation as he blew up the truck.
With the tenth installment of Revelation upcoming, the GWA Front Office has enacted new Ground Rules concerning all of its championships.
The GWA World Title, the GWA World Tag Team Titles and the International Title are intended to signify the status of 4 different wrestlers. The GWA World Title represents the best wrestler in the world, the GWA World Tag Team Titles represent the best tag team in the world and the International Title represents a hungry non-world champion who defends with regularity. On a night like Revelation, where all the titles are defended, they are meant to provide opportunities for 4 additional wrestlers.
The Front Office has determined that the championships are devalued when these lines are crossed. A champion's focus should be to retain the title he or she possesses, and a named challenger should focus on winning that particular title.
Therefore, the following Ground Rules are enacted, effective immediately:
A current champion cannot challenge for ANY other title; and
Once a challenger has been set, that wrestler cannot challenge for another title prior to his or her title match.
Exceptions may occur in rare circumstances, such as a GWA World Tag Team Champion winning the Tournament of Bruises or an International Champion earning the Around the Clock contract. In such cases, however, winning another title may result in forfeiture of the original title.
Gone are the days where wrestlers regularly perform double duty at Revelation. On Sunday, March 11, there will be 3 separate title matches with different champions and challengers in each of them. Going forward, distinct titles held by distinct wrestlers is the official policy of the GWA.
Huge Ref walked out with a scantily clad woman on each arm and announced tonight would be a night of true excitement, as he introduced a roulette wheel that would determine each match type for the night.

He then stated there was a rumor that Apokalupsis was set to return tonight, but he claimed those rumors were false and it was past the old man's bedtime. Suddenly, "Hero" by Skillet blasted through the PA system as Apokalupsis emerged amidst a sea of adoring fans, making a beeline for the former champion. He noted The Killer's breath still stunk of garbage from their last encounter, and proclaimed the GWA's savior was back. He then stated he had renewed his contract and was ready to get back into the game on Tuesday Night Spotlight by facing his old adversary.

Brewer came out to a surprising ovation of cheers and said it was time to cut the nonsense regarding his recent absence. He stated the GWA was once a place of fun, where he enjoyed working, but now it was "arrive, fight, and leave." Calling himself the last of a dying breed, he claimed to be on his last legs. He then declared there was one man who was a ray of hope, who knew what it took to be a top star. The Hall of Famer called out Dylan Black, choosing him as his final opponent.
