Couple of corrections on the CCW titles....Mr. Olympia was never Continental Champion- he unified the Alabama/Mississippi titles for the right to face Landel (winner of the tournament) to crown the first champion.

The Freebirds defeated Kabuki/Nagasaki by DQ on July 4th, Kabuki/Nagasaki retained the titles
