Recap from TJ Hawke:
This match was for Up in Smoke’s 2CW Tag Titles. Cheech and Cloudy were clearly the rudos here, which makes me sad because the Wolves’s matches as tecnicos were almost always missing something.
Eddie “Eddie Edwards” Edwards and Cloudy started the match out. Eddie won that exchange. Davey and Cheech tagged in. The Wolves were in complete control early. Eventually, Cheech attacked Eddie from the apron behind the ref’s back, which enabled Up in Smoke to cut off and then get the heat on Eddie. Eddie managed to hit a diving hurricanrana on Cheech. Davey tagged in and made a big comeback. Davey booted Cloudy to the floor, and then hit the handspring enzuigiri on Cheech: 1…2…NO!

Davey managed to take them both down with kicks. Eddie tagged in and hit Cloudy with a missile dropkick. Eddie hit Cloudy with a lionsault for a nearfall. Eddie tired to lock in a single leg crab, but Cloudy made the ropes. Cheech sent Davey into a guardrail. Eddie was double teamed by Up in Smoke in the ring.
