Good match from both of these guys. Sigmon is one of the promotions best guys (in my opinion). I remember seeing Shane Williams quite a while back, and hopefully he can keep up this kind of performance if he plans on staying with TCW. Good to see a back and forth contest in TCW end in a clean finish as well

I would call this a basic match, but I did enjoy it. The Express are still pretty good in the ring, which makes me pretty happy. This match was a little slower pace than I expected it to be, but still a good way to end the show this week

Last ten minutes of the show recaps the past few months of TCW, including the match of Dan Severn vs. Vordell Walker from last week’s show.

The 411: The two matches on the show were pretty good, but I don't understand the recap at the end. It is nice to be reminded of the rivalry between Jon Saxon and Steve Anthony, but should this have waited until they had a match? Also why show Severn/Walker again when it was up just LAST week? Confusing ending content aside, this was a good episode.
Final Score:  7.0   [ Good ]  legend
