Rating: ** ¾

David Otunga came into this week looking to right his wrongs after getting DQ’d during the Fatal Four Way Match last week. Kirby was looking to continue his winning way, hopefully without help from his tag partner Wade Barrett. In a grueling match, that saw a number of near falls, Otunga connected with The Verdict for the 1-2-3. After the match, as Otunga celebrated in the ring, THE BIG SHOW attacked him from behind! Otunga tried to fight back, but a huge right hand put an end to that! Show stood over Otunga as we go to commercials.

The two men brawl backstage before security and HWL personnel pull them apart.

Rating: * ¾

In a shocking display of fortitude, Kelly Kelly came out firing on all cylinders! In a match with so much on the line, Kelly proved that she certainly wanted it more. In the end it came down to Kelly and Melina, who as of late, has been on quite a tear lately. But, no matter what Melina was able to do, it wasn’t enough to keep Kelly down for long. Kelly hit the K2 to finally end things after half an hour! After the match, Kelly needed assistance from the referee to exit the ring, but nonetheless, she left with a shot at the Women’s Title on the horizon.

Commercial Break

Backstage, Brooke Barlow is seen with Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder. Hawkins says that many people in the PCW may not recognize them, but that they are far from new. Hawkins says that they might not have gotten a chance anywhere else, but this time will be different. Ryder says that instead of waiting for someone to give them a chance, they are going to take it when the time is right. Ryder says that they picked up a win their first night in, but that it’s not going to stop there – and that they won’t be satisfied – until they are the PCW Tag Team Champions.

Wade Barrett pinned Luke Gallows with the Wasteland in 10:53.
Rating: * ¼
[Martin Kirby interfered against Luke Gallows.]

Ever since becoming the number one contenders for the Tag Team Titles, Luke Gallows and Kazarian have had their hands full with the champions. Barrett and Kirby put Kazarian on the shelf two weeks ago, with a vicious attack backstage, and tonight Gallows was looking to avenge his partner. That wasn’t the case tonight as MARTIN KIRBY ran down to the ring, while Barrett had the referee distracted, and cracked the title belt over Gallows’ head! This opend up Gallows to fall victim to the Wasteland for the 1-2-3. After the match, Kirby and Barrett began to lay out Gallows until KAZARIAN ran down from the back and cleared the ring! Kazarian stood over his partner as the champions escaped down the aisle, as we go to commercials.

He says that David Otunga cost him a shot at the Television Title and demands a match against Otunga next Saturday night at Hollywood Hatred.

Television Title – Number One Contenders Match
Drew McIntyre defeated Justin Gabriel when J. Gabriel passed out in an armbar submission in 4:02.
Rating: *
*

Last week, Justin Gabriel won a grueling Fatal Four Way Match for the chance to face McIntyre tonight. Gabriel’s success last week didn’t last nearly as long this week, as McIntyre focused heavily on Gabriel’s arm, before locking in the armbar. A lot of credit to Gabriel for not tapping out, but he was unable to answer the referee’s call, therefore rewarding the match – and a title shot – to the Scotsman.

Card rating: * ¾
