Main Event-Fatal 4 way to crown the NEW Unity Pro Heavyweight Champion:
Due to contractual obligations the “the Mirror Image” Ricky Mandel was unable to compete in the Main Event for the Unity Pro SoCal Championship. So, Commissioner Jon Allen and the Unity Pro booking committee made the decision to replace him with Hector “El Chido” Canales. Sunami and Vintage Dragon, though competing against each other, showed great team work in their attempt to eliminate the Cryptkeeper. Both men gave it their all as they took turns in the ring using their speed and agility to take out the mighty Cryptkeeper. Canales in the mean time did his best to avoid being tagged into the match. When Canales was finally tagged into the match he attempted to befriend the Cryptkeeper with series of hugs. The big man didn’t respond well to this and began to have his way with Canales. This prompted Canales to quickly tag out of the match to Vintage Dragon. Vintage Dragon and Sunami appeared to finally begin to wear the big man down eventually knocking him to the outside of the ring.
In a show of frustration with the way things were going Dr. Diskord unleashed the Cryptkeeper with a steel chair. The Cryptkeeper quickly turned his attention to Sunami and hit him with a stiff shot with the chair forcing Jon Allen to disqualify the big man . The Cryptkeeper continued his assault with the steel chair on Vintage Dragon and then once again turned his attention to Sunami with another stiff shot to the head. The Unity Pro officials hit the ring and did their best to force the Cryptkeeper and Dr. Diskord to the back. In the mean time Canales took the opportunity to pin Sunami and make him the second man eliminated from the match. Canales quickly turned his attention to Vintage Dragon but was surprised when Dragon kicked out at the last second on not one but two attempted pins. Dragon was able to get back in the match and began to frustrate Canales after several near falls. As Dragon continued his assault on Canales he knocked him out of the ring, scaled to the top rope and attempted to launch himself at his fallen opponent but was blocked by the special guest referee.
While on the outside the frustrated Canales threw a chair into the ring nearly hitting Dragon. Dragon grabbed the chair with the intent to use it as a weapon. Jon Allen pulled the chair from Dragon and turned his back to throw the chair out of the ring. This gave Canales the opportunity to use a chair of his own on the now distracted Vintage Dragon to steal the pinfall victory and become the first Unity Pro SoCal Champion.
