CCW Best of the Best 3
September 29, 2018
Shawnee Park Center
Cape Girardeau, Mo
- Barackus (w/ Brandon Barbwire) def. Justin “The Juice” Smart via countout at 9:07 when Smart walked out on the match.
Barackus was Barbwire's surprise opponent for Smart.
- Pure Openweight World Champion Matheus and Joey O'Riley (w/ Jeff O'Dell) vs. “Farmer” Billy Hills ended in a no-contest at 11:34 when CCW General Manager Lane Austin (serving as special guest referee) threw the match out when he couldn't stop a brawl between Matheus and Hills.
The match was made a handicap match because Hills' scheduled tag team partner did not appear at the event.
After the match, Austin declared that, because Matheus and O'Riley could not defeat Hills in a 2-on-1 situation, Hills would receive a shot at Matheus' Pure Openweight World Championship at Hardcore Halloween 2 on October 27. Hardcore legend Madman Pondo will serve as the special enforcer for the match.
- Brandon "Espy" Espinosa def. Jacksyn Crowley via pinfall at 11:10.
During the match, a hooded figure in a pig mask appeared in the entryway, and was followed by a returning Dexter Roswell, whose face was painted like Espinosa's. Their appearance distracted Crowley long enough for Espinosa to deliver a brain buster for the win. After the match, Espinosa and Roswell beat down Crowley until a returning Ace Hawkins sprinted to Crowley's aid. Hawkins and Crowley drove off Espinosa and Roswell and shared a handshake.
- "Best of the Best" Austin Lane def. Dalton Anthony via pinfall at 10:51 in an unsanctioned match.
Lane Austin would not sanction the match and, after pleading with Anthony to not go through with it, served as referee under protest.
During the match, Anthony was poised to deliver a move from the top rope, but ring announcer Seanán Young grabbed Anthony's leg and told him not to do it. This distracted Anthony long enough for Lane to deliver a superplex and a package piledriver to put him away. After the match, Lane and Young embraced, and Young berated Anthony, telling him that he owns him and that he's nothing without him. Other wrestlers in training came to Anthony's aid, but couldn't overcome Lane. Finally, Marko Stunt and Brandon Barbwire came to the ring and drove Lane and Young away, while Young continued to hurl insults at Anthony and the CCW fans.

“#Summertime” Sarah Summers (C) def. Cassandra Golden via pinball at 7:31 to retain the Championship.

- CCW Championship
"Mr. Fun Size" Marko Stunt (C) def. PCO via disqualification at 11:23 to retain the Championship.
During the match, Austin Lane came to ringside and pushed Stunt off the top rope, drawing a disqualification. Lane attempted to package-piledrive Stunt, but PCO came to Stunt's aid and attacked Lane. After the match, Stunt and PCO had kind words for one another and for the CCW fans.
