Rating: *

Alex Payne stepped into the ring, a week after announcing that he was the man behind Wade Barrett’s sister’s disappearance last month. Payne looked to overcome his loss last week with a win tonight, which he did, when Harlem Bravado pushed down the referee after what he thought was a slow count. Payne attacked Bravado after the match, but quickly left the ringside area when Barrett ran down to ringside.

X Hero beat Buck via countout in 0:12:00.
X Castagnoli beat Buck after the KRS ONE in 0:14:19.
Rating: *** ¾

Last week, Hero and Castagnoli returned to the PCW, and went the distance with the former Tag Team Champions. This weeks, things were remarkably different. Hero and Castagnoli went to work on the former champs, isolating Jeremy Buck from his partner. Buck fought his way back, as he and Hero fought outside the ring. However, a misjudged high-risk move off the turnbuckle turned into Buck smashing into the guardrail at ringside! Hero rolled into the ring as Buck was counted out for the first fall. The second fall was systematic. Hero and Buck started off. Hero tagged in Castagnoli, and caught Gabriel with a cheap shot, allowing Hero and Castagnoli to double team Buck. When the action settled, Castagnoli connected with the KRS ONE for the victory.

Cody Rhodes got his shot to take down The Big Show, and end his reign as Heavyweight Champion, tonight. Returning with a victory last week, Rhodes had earned the shot, but had a very tough task ahead of him. The Big Show was too much for Rhodes tonight, as he shocked everyone with an ezurgiri, midway through the match. But, the champ put Rhodes away with the Choke Slam for another successful title defense.
