Pro Wrestling Guerrilla "World's Finest" results

Report by Nick Morris, PWTorch reader
Since PWG tag champion Super Dragon was injured, his PWG tag champion partner Kevin Steen opened the show.
(1) PWG tag champion Kevin Steen beat "Pretty" Peter Avalon. Good opener and a chop fest - Avalon's chest was bloody by the end.
(2) Brian Cage beat Ray Rosas.
(3) Scorpio Sky beat T.J. Perkins. My favorite match of the night. Amazing athletes.
(4) Candace LaRae beat Joey Ryan. Ryan, clean-shaven, wrestled in long johns. LaRae took nasty bumbs during the match.
(5) Super Smash Bros. beat Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson) and RockNES Monsters in a three-way tag match. This was originally scheduled to be a four-way for the PWG Tag Titles with Steen & Dragon defending the titles. The match itself had amazing spots and the Jacksons were amazing. Pretty much a chaotic Texas Tornado style match won by the SSBs.
(6) Kyle O'Reilly beat Alex Koslov. Stiffest match of the night. Brutal chops and kicks. Really good match.
(7) Willie Mack beat Roderick Strong. Mack was super over and the crowd chanted, "Next world champ." Solid match. Most mat work of the night.
(8) Kevin Steen beat PWG champion El Generico and Eddie Edwards in a three-way match to capture the PWG Title. Great stuff. Typical Steen-Generico hatred. Steen pinned Edwards to win the strap.
Overall, really good show. The crowd was not as hot as the last show, though. And, it was about an hour shorter, as well.
