The Extreme Horsemen (CW Anderson & Simon Diamond) (c) vs. Steve Williams & The Sandman [MLW Global Tag Team Championship]

Dr. Death!

CW was YOUR heel in peril early on. The Horsemen fought back quickly enough and worked over Sandman. This doesn’t seem like a match that should be worked as a straight tag. Unless you want it to be boring. In which case, this is the perfect match for normal tag rules. Dr. Death made the hot tag. The Horsemen fought back, but PJ Freedman hit CW with a chairshot. Just casual babyface interference for no reason. A mysterious masked man saved Diamond after a Dr. Death backdrop driver. CW hit both of his opponents with superkicks and then finished Sandman with a spinebuster on the chair to retain the titles.

This was honestly much better than it had any right to be. The wrestlers did not look good at all mind you. It was structured very well though, and it hit all the right beats. If the interference didn’t play such a big role in the finish, I would have liked this even more. All in all, the traditional tag structure for this match was desperately needed for such a trainwreck-style show.

Match Rating: **3/4
