ROH Only the Strong Survive
Bravado Brothers vs Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly - **3/4
-Decent opener, no qualms here. Can't make up my mind about the Bravados; they're either pretty entertaining or totally indy-riffic, I'm not sure yet.
Caprice Coleman vs Rhett Titus - **1/4
My first look at Coleman, I was pretty impressed, he seems quite slick in the ring.
Colt Cabana vs Grizzly Redwood - **
Mike Bennett vs Cedric Alexander - *
-Still not enamoured by Bennett.
Christopher Daniels vs Claudio Castagnoli - ***3/4
-Fantastic finishing stretch, I'd love to see a rematch on a grander scale; an NYC show perhaps.
Andy Ridge & Steve Corino vs Alabama Attitude (Mike Posey and Corey) - *1/2
Chris Hero vs Davey Richards - ****
El Generico vs Homicide vs Kenny King vs Mark Briscoe - ***
Roderick Strong vs Jay Briscoe - ****
-Some incredibly believable nearfalls in this one, I was hooked from the second Jay got busted open.
Overall: Mediocre first half but things pick up with Daniels/Castagnoli. Alongside the main event and Hero/Richards, these three matches make the show a worthwhile investment. It still feels like a B show, but a high end one at least.
Next up: Socal Showdown II.
