This was PTW's January Big Show. I was only able to stay for the first two matches as my daughter had a basketball game that I had to go to.

In the opening match Big Sepp defeated Danny Duggan.

The second match was DOUG VS Darin Corbin. Eugene came to the ring to be in DOUG's corner.

I think Darin Corbin defeated DOUG. I left before the match ended. Wish I would have stayed a little longer as I saw on social media later that night that Corbin got busted open and was a bloody mess.
