Crazy, fast pace brawl. These guy rarely let off as the match kept going. From my knowledge, these are two of the most experienced members of the TCW roster. It really shows as they had a good, strong style match. Looking forward to the Sigmon/Walker match that should soon take place

Winner and new #1 Contender: Lance Hoyt
I have mixed feelings about this match. The pacing just feels off to me, but besides that, everything is fine. Maybe it is the length of the match that is throwing me off, as this did feel like a short match. Hoyt and Phoenix have good chemistry together, as they had a good match for the championship not too long ago. Maybe I just need to give it a second watch, but I would say this was the weakest match of the show. However, it is still a good outing for these two

The 411: Pretty good show from TCW here. All the matches were pretty good, even if I think the main event was a bit short. Steve Anthony cut a good promo against Saxon, and it is interesting to see where Genetic Perfection/Hounds of Hell go. I have to say, the segment with Lily and Titan was painful to watch.
Final Score:  7.5   [ Good ]  legend
