Star rating: (***1/2) – Very good debut for Swann in PWG. Strong dominated a lot of the action, but Swann made some fantastic comebacks. They might have lost the crowd with all the nearfalls, but this was a fun match overall with some great exchanges. Strong’s chops and big back breakers are fantastic.

Star rating: (***) – The crowd was flat at times, but ended up getting drawn into the action as the match went on. There were some good back and forth exchanges and both men pulled off some impressive maneuvers given their size. I really liked how they actually told a story in the end with Cage continuing his heel run and hitting a low blow on Mack after he accidentally took out the ref. There were too many nearfalls during the course of the match, but they pulled things together in the end.

Star rating: (****1/4) – This was an amazing match. They started with some long heat segments from the Young Bucks. Once Omega got the hot tag later in the match, the pace really picked up after the Young Bucks had used cheap tactics to keep Omega and Generico grounded at different times during the match. The crowd was so hot for this match and some of the sequences these two teams pulled off blew my mind. The crowd ate up every nearfall leading into the finish and it was simply awesome to see Omega back in a PWG ring. Where else are you going to see a crowd go nuts over an arm wrestling contest?
Steen got on the mic before the main event and told the fans Adam Cole had taken the belt, which is why he didn’t have it with him.

Winner: Kevin Steen to retain the PWG Championship
Star rating: (***1/2) – There was just so much going on in this match that it was hard to keep track of everything. All three men pulled off some great spots during the match and if you enjoy this style of match, you’ll love what they put together. The highlight of the match was Ricochet hitting a SSP to the outside on Elgin and then going right up top and hitting one on Steen for a good nearfall. This was a short match by usual PWG main event standards, but it was fun.
Overall thoughts: (8.5) – This was another fantastic in-ring show from PWG. If you’re looking to see matches you won’t see anywhere else, PWG is the place to go and once again they delivered an all-star caliber lineup.
The undercard started off a little slowly with the exception of the Elgin-Edwards match, which was very good. Elgin took over for Steen when it came to pulling double duty on this show and was part of two really good matches on the same card.
The card really picked up steam with Callihan and Richards engaging in an all-out war with both men working leg submissions and building to a fantastic finish, although their selling needs some work if they’re going to get fans to buy into the submissions.
Rich Swann had a great debut for PWG on this show and the fans ate up his rapid-fire style of offense. Strong hit some sick looking maneuvers on Swann, including a huge pop-up back stabber that popped the crowd huge leading into the finish.
Kenny Omega & El Generico vs. The Young Bucks stole the show with an incredible tag team match that set the crowd on fire. They did a nice job of building the match around the Young Bucks heel tactics giving them the advantage before the action really heated up and all four men pulled off some fantastic exchanges leading into the finish. It was a blast seeing Omega back in PWG and the crowd was thrilled to see him.
The main event was really good, although it was a bit on the short side from what you would expect from a PWG main event. All three men went all out here and delivered some fantastic sequences during the match with rapid fire spots and nearfalls leading into the finish. Ricochet thrives in this kind of environment and he shined here. If you’re into this style of action, you’re going to love this match.
Overall, this was another really good card from PWG and if you’re looking for great wrestling in front of a hot crowd, this show is more than worth the price of admission.
