On the heels of a successful Pain for Pride event and acquisition of EOW, this made Midsummer Massacre 2008 become one of the most important events ever. The debut of different Hall of Fame talent such as Lethal Consequences and the introduction of the EAW Interwire Championship are just a few moments that made this an all-time memorable event.

  • 2. The match was originally a tag match between NWOMatt & Kofi Krazi and Dark Emperor & Shattered Windows but turn into a three-way match for the tag titles due to Team I2K wasn't happy about having a match on the event and that they're the most dominant team of the EAW Roster.
