Davey Richards vs. Kevin Steen ***¾-****
Edwards/Rhino: Seriously enjoyed this, such an easy opener to get into.
Bucks-Mondo/TJP-ANX: A few mistimed moments hurt this early on but it was overall a pretty fun little match. The series of kicks spot was pretty cool.
Lethal/Ciampa: Good showing from both men in a surprisingly fun match. WTF at Ciampa's new look.
Storm/Bennett: Best Mike Bennett match I've seen and a pretty fun match overall. I liked Storm using the codebreaker and Fozzy as his theme.
Cole/Elgin: Damn enjoyable match. Elgin has improved so much in the last 6 months.
Strong/Finlay: Very disappointing.
WGTT/Briscoes: Meh. Had a couple okay moments thanks to the Briscoes but still nothing great.
Steen/Davey: Real good main event, though I'm a bigger fan of their match from Champions' Challenge. Steen putting Davey's mouthguard in his own mouth was legit disgusting lol.
Overall I enjoyed Border Wars quite a bit considering it's the first full ROH show I've watched since Final Battle last year. Outside of a disappointing Strong/Finlay match and the usual meh Briscoes/WGTT, everything else was enjoyable hitting the *** mark or higher
