[Tag Team Title Match]:
Jay Lethal & Wade Barrett defeated The Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) when Lethal pinned Castagnoli after a gutwrench suplex in 0:21:11.
Rating: *** ¼
(Jay Lethal & Wade Barrett retained the PCW Tag Team Titles.)

Jay Lethal and Wade Barrett continue their winning ways with a very impressive – and exciting – victory over The Kings of Wrestling. There is a lot of history between Jay Lethal and Claudio Castagnoli, as together, they are known as the most successful tag team in PCW history. So it went without saying that they knew each other very well coming into this match. And, in a sign of karma, Lethal picked up the victory over his former partner to retain the belts. After the match, James Storm and Eddie Edwards came to the stage and demanded to know why their scheduled rematch for the titles did not happen. They say that Lethal and Barrett are “running scared”, and that they don’t want to put the belts up inside a steel cage. Lethal and Barrett say that the match will happen next week, and that Storm and Edwards wouldn’t be as lucky as before.

Rating: ** ¾
(Mr. Ernesto Osiris retained the PCW Television Title.)

The undefeated streak continues for the Television Champion as Osiris retains the title due to disqualification. In a desperate attempt to gain advantage during the match, Kazarian chose not to release a choke hold, getting himself DQ’d and losing a chance at winning gold in the PCW. After the match, Kazarian was visibly frustrated, as he was restrained by the referee, while Osiris collected his bearings and walked away with the title.

[Triple Threat Match for the Heavyweight Title]:
The Big Show defeated Titus O’Neil and Robert Roode:

X Show beat R. Roode via the Choke Slam in 0:32:12.
Rating: ** ¾
(The Big Show retained the PCW Heavyweight Title.)

The challenges for The Big Show just keep getting tougher; but the World’s Largest Athlete keeps rising to the occasion, as he did here tonight. O’Neil and Roode, both hungry for championship gold, had one goal in mind: eliminate the champion. Even with a similar mindset, they were unable to do so, and Show fought his way through double teams and any attempt to take him out. In a grueling 30-minute match, the Choke Slam ended the night – and any hopes of title glory – for both men.
