And I think Hero/Danielson was the best match in PWG history. I was hoping for Segunda Caida to answer my post back on the Hero's discussion, but anyway, that match is wonderful. So far away from Richards Vs Hero that had a lot of flaws.
The reason I don't mind the botch that much was to how well Daniels covered it and if you think about it, it went with the story as well. The story being of course that everything was going Daniels way like getting in the illegal punch without getting caught, forcing the referee to agree on taking away Richards' rope break, and avoiding Richards getting a revenge death valley driver like Daniels had done to him in their last match. Everything was going his way and yet he still couldn't get the W. That made his post match reaction much better and I think helped reason for his heel turn instead of losing to the shooting star. Of course, I am the only one that feels that way though.
I really can't get behind Danielson/Hero as the best PWG match ever and I have it on DVD! The match is just to long, often find myself bored, and while I got the storytelling & everything, the match just does nothing for me. Hero threw about 20 elbows in that match and none of them got a bigger reaction then the three he used against Richards. Probably one of my least favorite Danielson farewell matches actually. I thought the match they had at Boston later in the same month(I think) was better. Richards/Hero had everything I could possibly want. A good build, great psychology, good selling, and a story that was played through out the match that was never forgotten. Can't tell you how much I get caught into the match.
