AAW Heavyweight Championship match:
“The Callahan Death Machine” Sami Callahan © vs. John Morrison
AAW Heavyweight Champion Sami Callahan enters this title match much stronger than he did in his first meeting with the experienced Morrison at August 2016’s Showdown, Sami’s first match after losing the AAW Heavyweight Championship to Pentagon Jr the previous month.
At Showdown, despite Killer Kult manager JT Davidson interrupting a sure pinfall victory for Morrison -- and paying for it with further trauma to the left arm injured by Pentagon in July while meddling in the title match -- the debuting Morrison got the win after a split-legged moonsault with chairs.
Now, after re-gaining the title at the second night of the Jim Lyman Memorial Tournament in October, Callahan is looking to avenge his loss to Morrison and add to his list of victims as his title reign rolls on! On the other side, Morrison is looking to add the AAW Heavyweight Championship to his impressive list of accomplishments in the world of Professional Wrestling.
AAW Heritage Championship match:
ACH © vs. Jake Crist (OI4K)
This will the first defense of ACH’s newly-won Heritage Championship after defeating AR Fox at Unstoppable! He’d better watch his back for Crist's Killer Kult cohort Jessicka Havok and their sleazy manager JT Davidson. Jake Crist might be known primarily as a tag team competitor but he will attempt to break thru in AAW singles division and take the Heritage Title back to the camp of the Killer Kult.

First Time Ever match:
Rey Fenix vs. Michael “Big Mike” Elgin
In a match that’s sure to tear the Knights of Columbus to the ground, high-flying luchador Rey Fenix will attempt to bounce back from his loss to Sami Callahan at Unstoppable with a win over former AAW Triple Crown champion, the powerful “Big Mike” Michael Elgin.
Elgin returned to AAW at November’s Windy City Classic XII in response to Zack Sabre Jr. making his intentions of challenging for the AAW title known. Elgin informed Sabre that he’d have to get through “Big Mike” before anything, and a win over Fenix at Tradition Continues would be key for Elgin to stay in the title picture. Both men have expressed interest in getting another chance the bigest prize in AAW, the Heavyweight Championship - will Big Mike’s power ground the mighty Rey Fenix?

Silas Young vs. Colt Cabana
In the Battle of Dispositions, the self-proclaimed “Last Real Man” in professional wrestling, Silas Young, takes on a guy with sound effects for a nickname, Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana. This should be interesting, to say the least as these two veterans do battle during the debut event for AAW in LaSalle Illinois!

The Besties in the World (Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett) vs. the Hooligans (Devin & Mason Cutter with Mr. LaSalle Buck Nasty)
Two former AAW Tag Team Champions do battle. A win for either team here should put them in line for a shot at the tag team title holders, Andrew Everett & Trevor Lee! Will “Mr. LaSalle” Buck Nasty get his Hooligans back on their winning ways?
