My Take: The opening contest went a little too long, and rather repetitive. The triple threat was pretty solid, the right guy in Dizzie went over. Dizzie appears to have a lot of talent. Women’s match was short and effective, didn’t lose the crowd too much. Brown/Scorpio started off really slow, but finished really well. A very solid contest put on by two very good workers. King/Law was a quick squash for King. James Gang/Gordy/Love delivered on comedy, but in ring action lacked. The flag match sucked. It was really boring and really just below average. Tables Match was rather average. A few vicious chair shots doesn’t make a great contest. Four overall decent/solid matches for the biggest 2CW show to date.
