Dead Reckoning was a professional e-wrestling pay-per-view presented by Lords of Pain Wrestling under the Inferno brand. The event took place on February 12, 2008 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.
After D. Hammond Samuels successfully retained the LPW International Heavyweight Championship against fan favorite Drew Michaels in a 60-Minute Iron Man Match at Sacrament, Michaels could not stand to see his arch-enemy walk away scott-free. During the opening of the Inferno 11.2 broadcast, Michaels got into a fist fight with Samuels in front of general manager Spectre. Spectre ordered that the two would face each other at Dead Reckoning with stipulations to be added.
During Inferno 11.2, Spectre announced that Ham and Michaels would pick each other's opponents for Inferno 11.3: Pick Your Poison. The man who would win in the shortest time (if he wins at all), will earn the right to choose the stipulations for the main event title match at Dead Reckoning. If only one wins, that winner will choose the stipulations. In the off chance that both men lose, the man who survives the longest will choose the stipulation.
After Ham successfully defended the International Heavyweight Championship against 2006 Owner's Cup winner, Wevv Mang, Michaels announced that Ham would be facing Pen. Pen was the last man who defeated Ham, not to mention beating him in back-to-back matches for the World Heavyweight Championship at Schizos Wild and then the Martinez Cup at Altered Reality III. During a LPW.com exclusive, Ham picked X as Michaels' opponent, who had beaten Michaels in a heated hardcore match during At All Costs earlier in the year.
At Pick Your Poison, Michaels was able to defeat X in 10:35 after landing a Wicked DDT on X with a steel chair wrapped around his neck. But unfortunately for Michaels, Samuels was able to avenge his previous defeats by pinning Pen in 10:30 after hitting a Blackout Driver.
At the following Inferno 11.4 telecast, Samuels announced that the International Heavyweight Championship match between the rivals would be in a Tijuana Cage Match, a match that Samuels made famous when he won his first LPW World Heavyweight Championship after defeating pro wrestling legend SoL.
