Christian Championship Wrestling begun searching for talent for their new show called Saturday Night Main Event. They found good quality talent by a nation wide talent search and ran with it. After completing the locker room, the CCW continued to look for more talent to use, and they found so much they had to expand the shows' 1 hour format to 2 hour format. CCW Thursday Night Retribution was split into 2 shows due to overcrowding and expanded all they could before ceasing the talent search. On June 20, 2006, they had to give up half of their top stars to CCW Sunday Night Salvation in a Brand Extension and had to create their own titles. Also, during this exchange, Retribution had to move to Wednesday nights. Everything calmed down until the 2007 CCW Draft Lottery came back on December 26, 2007 with a new tool called Trades. On January 20, 2008, it was discovered that Retribution moved from Wednesday to Thursday nights for unknown reasons by CCW management.
