And you know Sabin and Shelley are gonna be a well oiled mahcine hitting on all cylinders. I would've gone ****1/2 but I felt like the finish brought it down.
Tyler vs. Roddy I thought was an excellent match. Strong really carried Tyler throughout the match and was really in control through most of it. He looked as good as I've ever seen him and he was completely determined to win the title. I got really annoyed throughout it though because the crowd was so anti-Black, and it does nothing but hurt the match when you boo every move he hits. Many boos and chants of overrated but you gotta ignore it. It really looked like it was gonna be Strong's night.
Guns/Kings was pretty amazing. I love how well their characters came across in the match.
I really didn't like the "overrated" chants at Black, nor did I take part in them, you have to understand why the crowd was like that. Strong has had so many title shots and always comes up short. There was no way that Black was going to get any support during the match over Strong. And, if I recall correctly, the crowd was at the very least respectful towards him after the match.
