This was a lot better than Younger and Kingston’s defense against the Cult Fiction duo from the last show, though the finish was also underwhelming and out of nowhere. They built to a lot just to end up with a roll-up which made me feel a little cheated. That finish aside however, this was solid hardcore action throughout. **3/4
Shortly after this match, Eddie Kingston would leave CZW. It’s a shame because he and Younger had excellent chemistry but only had two defenses against lame opponents. The tag titles were vacated and were put up in an eight team tournament. That tournament would see the CZW debut of a CHIKARA tag team looking for gold.
