9/29/07 - IWA:MS - Midlothian, IL
    Quack met Joey Ryan of PWG fame in the 2nd round of the 2007 Ted Petty Invitational, and picked up the win, via Lightning Lock Beta, to advance. During the match, Mike attempted a tope out of the ring, but his leg clipped the top rope, sending him crashing to the floor. Post-match, it was announced that Mike would be unable to continue in the tournament. As the following round match was about to be awarded via forfeit to Josh Abercrombie, Quackenbush dragged himself to the ring and told the referee that he came to fight. To the surprise of all, Mike managed to lock on the Robin Hood Special and force Abercrombie to submit.
   In the main event of the evening, Quack would meet both Chuck Taylor and regular nemesis Claudio Castagnoli, but both men dominated their time in the ring with him, and Quack seemed to have a hard time mounting any offense. The crowd roared in approval when Mike tried QD3 on Castagnoli, but he barely had the strength to turn him. Quack then hoisted Claudio up for QD2 and eliminated the Swiss giant. The finals came down to the IWA:MS heavyweight champ Taylor and the light heavyweight champion Quackenbush. Quack survived a brainbuster and an enzuigiri long enough to hit QD3, but when Taylor escaped, Quack's luck seemed to be running thin. Taylor nailed his Omega Driver, but not even this was enough to put Quack away. When Taylor tried to repeat the move from the top rope, Mike switched and executed the Liger Bomb, and converted directly to the CHIKARA Special for the tap out and the tournament win!

A hooded, cloaked figure slid into the ring behind Ares' back, and then dispensed with the disguise to reveal none other than Quack himself! The emotional outpouring from the fans on hand was deafening as Mike exploded into action with a flurry of strikes, a dropkick, and then a picture perfect Tope con Hilo onto the champion! Mike survived a long Boston Crab from Ares, and a series of back-targeting moves, which seemed to put the challenger in serious trouble. After landing a series of Palm Strikes, and surviving the Tiger Driver, Quack locked on QD2 (Quackendriver # 2) and planted Ares. The crowd exploded as Referee Tas pounded in the three count for the title win by the returning "Master of a Thousand Holds."
