ROH Supercard Of Honor VI

1) Homicide vs Michael Elgin: A sluggish opener full of awkwardness & hesitation. *

2) Cole & O'Reilly vs Bravados: Good basic tag match with an action-packed home straight. ***1/4

3) Steve Corino vs Mike Bennett: All credit to Corino for getting the crowd into a Bennett match. *3/4

4) Chris Hero vs El Generico: Disappointing from these two, even given its place on the card & lack of back story. Silly finish too. **3/4

5) Davey Richards vs Charlie Haas: For someone who's so over when his music plays, Davey has a frustrating knack for losing the crowd with his incoherent jumbles of big moves & patchy selling. At one point they traded 10 german suplexes to a smattering of applause & a 3-man "this is awesome" chant which promptly died on its arse. **1/2

6) Claudio Castagnoli vs Shelton Benjamin: Claudio dominated the early going with a immense display of technical prowess & crowd interaction. Shelton's comebacks lacked a certain spark, though. ***

7) Christopher Daniels vs Colt Cabana: Some nice exchanges early on. **1/2

8) Briscoes vs ANX: More of a methodical, old-school (ie. pre-ECW) style brawl than its ROH predecessors. They didn't go all over the building or overdo the weapons shots & the result was a really intense & believable scrap. ****

9) Eddie Edwards vs Roderick Strong: Roddy was fantastic here as the former champ on a desperate mission for redemption. He worked over Eddie's back relentlessly, while the champ relied on an annoyingly random assortment of counters & comebacks, before slapping on an unrelated submission. ***3/4

Aside from the opener, there's nothing dreadful here, but the card falls short of previous SCOH benchmarks. Several of the finishes are really abrupt & undramatic, and it's noticeable of late that ROH crowds aren't as bothered about the outcome of matches as they once were.
