The Davey/Eddie segment was actually the best thing of the night. Curious to see who's training Eddie now.
Michael Elgin vs. Shiloh Jonze. Squash city. *
Inside ROH. Well they tried something different with the whole Steen suing angle. But his "lawyers" were fucking goofs. The Lethal/Bennett thing didn't really accomplish much. Just last week Cornette said no one say Steen's name and they aren't doing business with him, but now they're gonna promote him with this whole "The Crimes of Kevin Steen" thing? Yeah, that makes sense.
WGTT vs. Coleman & Alexander was borderline terrible. No chemistry between the two teams at all. C & C's offense looked really weak against Charlie & Shelton, who were noticeably quite larger than their opponents. I'm pretty sure the match was edited in at least one part and the camera missed moves late in the match. Not to mention the finish was as flat as Tara Reid's ass. Not impressed. **
The Young Bucks vs. The Bravados (I'm assuming so)
American Wolves vs. Strong & Elgin
Pretty much agree with all of the above.
A couple of positives were Davey's excellent promo work and Coleman being really athletic but, with the combination of cheesy backstage segments, clumsy squash matches and the Nigel (rightly tbh) pointing out the psychological flaws in the Proving Ground concept, it was a really bad show.
