Robert Roode injured his right knee, and will be out approximately five (5) cards.
Rating: ** 3/4

Tyson Kidd can consider himself very lucky tonight, as the referee allowed the match to continue for just a second longer, counting the 1-2-3 after Kidd hit the Springboard Elbowdrop for the victory. Unfortunately, while coming down after being hit, Robert Roode’s knee twisted violently to the side, and he was helped to the back by medical officials after the match.

Kofi Kingston pinned Hulk Hogan with the Trouble in Paradise in 0:13:13.
Rating: *
*

Kofi Kingston looked very impressive in this match of two tag team partners, taking total control over Hogan throughout the match. “The Hulkster” got in a few bits of offense, but they were no use for the youth and speed of Kingston. Kingston hit the Trouble in Paradise for the 1-2-3.

Alberto Del Rio pinned Daniel Bryan after a Frankensteiner in 0:05:48.
Rating: *** ½

Del Rio picks up a very quick victory tonight, hitting a Frankensteiner out of nowhere to stun Bryan - and the crowd - picking up the 1-2-3 along the way.

[Tag Team Title Match]:
Jay Lethal & Claudio Castagnoli defeated The Bravado Brothers (Harlem & Lance) when Lethal pinned Harlem after a figure-four leglock in 0:04:02.
Rating: ** ½
(Jay Lethal & Claudio Castagnoli retained the PCW Tag Team Titles.)

The Bravado Brothers tried to end their losing ways by joining forces tonight, to take on one of the longest-tenured championship teams in the history of the PCW. Tonight, Lethal and Castagnoli continued their winning ways as Lethal just got his shoulder up before the referee counted the three. A shocked Lance Bravado watched, helplessly, from the apron as Lethal and Castagnoli celebrated their victory in the center of the ring after the match.

Primo defeated The Great Khali by disqualification in 0:13:15.
Rating: -* ¾

In a match that looked completely lopsided on paper, Primo came out tonight and showed a resilience that didn’t seem possible. He took everything “The Punjabi Giant” gave him, and gave it right back to Khali. Primo fell victim to the Punjabi Plunge, for was lucky enough to get his foot on the rope to stop the three-count. Seeing that Primo was a tougher opponent then expected, Rajin Singh interfered, tripping Primo, and getting Khali disqualified. After the match, Khali grabbed Primo from behind and caught him in a claw hold. Primo begged to be let go as the referee tried to pry Khali off him. Singh entered the ring and told Khali to let go before they both left the ring.

[PCW Television Title Match]:
Max Buck and Randy Orton battled to a double countout in 0:03:06.
Randy Orton suffered a back injury, and will be out approximately three (3) cards.
Rating: ** ¾
(Max Buck retained the PCW Television Title.)

This match ended before it really ever got started, as the anticipation began to build as both men took the fight outside the ring. As they brawled at ringside, Orton threw Buck into the ring post and started to stalk him, aiming for the RKO. As Orton went for it, Buck pushed him off, and Orton crashed down onto the concrete floor, screaming out in pain and holding his back. Buck went on the offensive, kicking Orton, oblivious to the referee’s ten-count. As the bell sounded, with both men outside the ring, Buck threw up his hands in disbelief, but raised the title into the air in celebration, as the referee and medical officials tended to “The Viper”.

[PCW Heavyweight Title Match]:
Justin Gabriel pinned James Storm with the 450 Splash in 0:13:34.
Rating: *
¾
(Justin Gabriel retained the PCW Heavyweight Title.)**

This was a back-and-forth match from the get go, as both men jockeyed for position to control the match, and hopefully become - or retain - the Heavyweight Title. Storm used a lot of fast-paced and high flying moves to wear down Gabriel, but the champion just wouldn’t be put away. Running out of options, Storm resorted to spitting beer in Gabriel’s eyes! But, Gabriel was able to fight back, and hit the 450 Splash for the 1-2-3.

Card rating: ** 1/4
