City, State: St.Paul, MN
Venue: Eagles Club

The first match was a 4 man elimination match for the SCW Future Clash Championship held by Brandon Gore.
JDX eliminated Koda Jacobs.

Brandon Gore eliminated Joey Keys.

SCW Future Clash champion Brandon Gore pinned JDX to retain the title.

The next match was to determine the #1 contender for the SCW Future Clash championship. Former champion Ricky Noren VS Kyle Pro ended in a double count out.

Tomahawk Kid pinned Shinigami. Message to fans who figure out who is under the mask. Keep it to yourself.

Heavy Metal Lore pinned James Tapia. Lore actually tapped out to a Tapia submission hold but the ref was knocked out.

El Angel Dorado & Giant Griffin won by DQ over ESQ III & Rylie Jackson.

This match must have been contested under lucha rules as the DQ came when Rylie Jackson took off El Angel Dorado's mask.

Zuka King pinned DeAndre Jackson after outside help from JDX. These two men and Movie Myk (who was in the main event) came all the way from the east coast for 2 SCW events. It's always nice to see two guys come to an area where no one in the crowd knows who they are.Both these guys connected with the SCW crowd.

Air Wolf won a 4 man match against Kal Creed, Movie Myk and Jeff Cobb. Air Wolf got the 3 count on Myk.

SCW returns to the Eagles Club on Friday March 30, 2018.

This was the last of 6 events I went to in the month of January. That's 6 different promotions, all in Minnesota. Over 60 different wrestlers. 6 of those wrestlers were on 4 of the events I was at. 47 wrestlers were only on one of the 6 promotion events I was at. The majority of the wrestlers were MN based as only 13 were from out of state.

Time/Date: 7 p.m. Friday January 26, 2018
City, State: Bloomington, MN
Venue: Bloomington Event Center

This was PTW's annual Big Show and the last PTW event by promoter Greg McDonald AKA Magic Man. It was announced that Steel Domain Wrestling bought PTW and they will now run shows at the Bloomington Event Center under the PTW banner.

Lenny Lane returned to PTW to be commissioner for the night.

In the opening match The Tomahawk Kid defeated Magic Man

In a trainer VS student match Air Wolf pinned Shawn Daivari. Ken Anderson was scheduled to be in this match but he was unable to make it so Daivari took his place.

Next up was a match for the PTW Uptown championship. It was to be a 4 way match but Black Stallion was taken out of action by champion Darin Corbin before the other two wrestlers made it to the ring.

The other two wrestlers in the now 3 way match were Craven Knyte and Danny Duggan. As Darin Corbin was attacking Stallion before the bell Renny D came to the ring. Renny D was then made the referee for this match. The match ended when Corbin hit Knyte,  Duggan and Renny D with the title belt. Corbin lost by DQ and was stripped of the title because he hit an official. 

At intermission two more former PTW members, Tiger Lilly and Robbie Thunder,  came out for the raffle drawing. 

Big Sepp pinned Ricky Love.

Matt "The Beer City Bruiser" Winchester defeated Heavy Metal Lore in a hard core match.

The main event was a 3 tag team elimination match for all the titles in PTW. The DOUGs VS Body Beautiful (Billy Blaze & PTW champion Mitch Paradise) VS PTW tag team champions Wild Cat & Super Thunder Frog. The DOUGs were eliminated after Black Stallion unmasked one of the DOUGs to reveal it was Darin Corbin. The match ended in a double pin. Referee Jay Soltis said Body Beautiful won and referee Willy Mac said Cat & Frog won. So it looks like all the PTW titles are vacated until the next event at the Bloomington Event Center on March 30, 2018.
