I was unable to attend this event, which had a great card and was local to me, so I’ve been waiting excitedly for the dvd to arrive, it has and I’ve finally gotten to see it!
HT Drake vs Lightning Lewis
Solid well paced opening match. HT Drake is class and I am very much looking forward to seeing him take on Jimmy Havoc at Wipeout, as announced after the match. His winning streak has been impressive but it could be his toughest challenge yet. Lightning Lewis was a good opponent who I’d not seen before but I hope to see more of.
Lil Miss Roxy vs Lana Austin vs Ruby Summers
The match was started by the news Champion Violet O’Hara was not cleared to wrestle and had to forfeit the title. This meant the match became a triple threat between 3 amazing wrestlers to crown a new champ.
This was an enjoyable match which gave all three competitors a chance to show their stuff. I’m glad to see Lana take the belt as I think she’s been consistently great for a while and well deserving of a run.
Dara Diablo vs Kyle Ashmore
I’ve not seen much of these two before so didn’t really know what to expect. I was impressed with both guys and enjoyed the match. I hope to see more of both soon
JD Boom vs Jack Sexsmith
I’ve seen a bit I’d Sexsmith before, I genuinely enjoy most of his stuff, although occasionally I feel he goes too far for a cheap laugh. This match had a few of those moments in it. Although there was some good bits intertwined.
The Service & Dan Evans vs Go Team Sports & Gabriel Kidd
David Graves is one of my favourite up and coming wrestlers in the UK, and all 5 of the other guys in this match are excellent too so I was looking forward to this one.
It was a good match. Unsurprisingly David Graves was the stand out competitor but all 6 guys put in solid performances.
Liam Slater vs Bubblegum – TCW Open Championship
Now we are getting to the business end of the show and the match quality was about to jump up a notch. This was a great match by two superb wrestlers. I very much enjoyed it. The aftermath involving the service was good and I look forward to seeing Slater vs Only if and when it happens.
Rampage Brown vs Dave Mastiff – TCW Championship
I saw these two go at it in PROGRESS recently an it was awesome so I was hoping for the same from this. It was another great match, although it was, like a few other matches in the card, a tad shorter than I’d have liked.
Main Event: New Nation vs The Proven – TCW Tag Titles
This was a great match between two teams that I love. It’s a shame there was a no rematch clause as I could watch this feud forever. I hope to see a lot more of these 4. I see a big future for both members of the new nation in particular.
Another solid show from Tidal. There is a lot of strength in depth in the roster.
It’s a shame Dan James has now retired. I enjoy his matches.
A lot of the matches on this card felt a little short. It may have been better to have a match or two less and let each match go a tad longer, although I can’t think of a match that should have been cut. I imagine extending the length of the show wasn’t an option.
The next TCW show is Wipeout next week, and the card is stacked to the roof! Should be a cracker, it’s at “the church” on leeds and if you are local.you should definitely get there.
