A tournament where the winner would receive a Revolution Pro contract. The finals saw Scorpio Sky vs. Quick Silver. The match went to a draw and both men were given contracts.

Super Dragonand Taro), gaining the opportunity for a title match against Halloween and Damian 666, but they were defeated. Despite the loss they were named the Southern California Tag Team of the Year for 2003 and they also won the 2003 Revolution Pro Tag Team of the Year award.
