- Never having seen any USWA I was surprised at the bad production value of some of this stuff. Apart from the studio tapings it seems to be just a one handcamera, like a random RF Video indy show taping ca. 2000.

- I was amused that Lance Russell called Doug Gilbert "Tommy" continuously.

- I cannot decide who looks sleazier, JC Ice or Tommy Rich, though both definitely can cut a great promo.

 

EDIT: This comments are meant to be for the feud recap. The match itself was fine, but to short and missing any significant face-in-peril segment.

Fun fast-paced match, almost a sprint. The heels screw themselves when they try to cheat, setting up what I imagine will be a rematch.

 

I could listen to Lance Russell all day. Is the black commentator Cory the same guy who supposedly sold the Memphis tapes to highspots.com?

Jamie Dundee in the top hat and white jean shorts is so awesome. I went to high school in Montana in the mid 90s, and there were so many trashy trailer park yokels in that town who dressed just like PG-13. It really is one of the most timely gimmicks I can think of.

Well, good to see this format of USWA matches was happening in 1996. I hope for more PG-13 tags as I think they are great as a team together and would be much more well known if they would have been in higher profile places. Title change happens which seems kind of weird heading into the round robin challenge but the studio crowd popped big. (**1/4)

Either last week was 12/30, or this is 1/13, as they're making reference to the previous week's tournament.

 

Standard studio match--basic and okay, but there are far better PG-13 matches even in the studio. They tease miscommunication between Rich & Gilbert, and a blown double-team attempt nets PG-13 the tag titles.
