FaceOff was Intense Championship Wrestling's inaugural pay-per-view event. It took place at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. It was attended by 77, 568 fans. The event's tagline was 'The Dawning Of A New Era'. The main event was the heavily-hyped Team TNT Vs Team SNK 6 man tag team match.


When FaceOff was announced, rivalries started to get bigger and bigger, with all resulting in PPV matches. Multiple show invasions from both brands started a huge rivalry between SNK and TNT. GMs Ocheeva and Desperado then decided that each of them would pick two men to team with, and a 6 man tag team match would take place at the PPV. Ocheeva picked Danny Psycho and Hot Rod, while Desperado chose Steven Daniels III and DC Miller. The rivalry continued at the PPV, with a wild brawl between the two brands. Evan defended his TNT Middleweight Title in a rematch against Sean South. Sean South badmouthed Evan continuisly, but Evan got him back at the PPV. Tripp beat LG Millard on SNK to earn a TV Title shot, and Purest was put in the match as well, so those two men challenged Lord Astaroth in a No Holds Barred 3 Way match. Team Tre took on the mystery team of Beast and Moddern Messiah to crown the first ICW Tag Team Champions. There were two Number 1 Contender's matches for cruiserweight gold, and a Backstage Brawl for a shot at the SNK TV Title.
