Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread
Been a while since I watched this show so doing ratings by memory
ROH Final Showdown
Alex Shelley vs Roderick Strong - *** 1/2
Matt Stryker vs Masked Chicago Superstar - DUD
Samoa Joe vs Jack Evans vs Delirious vs Ebetaroh/Kikutaro - ** (actual match really isn't that good but this is a extremely entertaining match)
BJ Whitmer/Jimmy Jacobs vs CM Punk/Ace Steel - ** 3/4
Jimmy Rave vs Matt Sydal - ** 3/4
Nigel McGuinness/Chad Collyer vs Colt Cabana/Doug Williams - *** 1/4
Austin Aries vs James Gibson - *** 3/4 - ****
Bryan Danielson vs Homicide - *** 1/4 (ending is bad since its a end of a major fued and really takes away from the match).
Overall Rating - *** (Solid Buy)
Not the best show but the ROH Title match was excellent as well as the Strong/Shelley match, the 4 way is HILARIOUS and is a really fun but not a great match, and I have an issue with the ending of the cage match being the way it was but all and all this is a good show. The real strength behind this show is how well it bridges Manhattan Mayhem and Nowhere to Run two absolutely must have shows.
