"Just a few quick words for this quick PPV. First off, kick-ass banner. Second off, great way to start a PPV: with a huge win for the faces. I never saw RVD coming, but this could lead into a great rivalry."
If you read the post-Battle Lines news which will be up shortly, you'll see the answer to whether RVD will start a programme with Jack Evans.
"Chase vs. Mark, huh? Not a bad idea. I actually expected a clean match here, but I suppose this is better, as itíll lead into a Franchise/Briscoes match."
It was actually Jay that he was having the confrontation with. I'm fairly new to them so I was a little confused, but watching ROH lately has helped me decifer them from one another. As for a potential fued, at BL there were no punches thrown only heated words. Words will never hurt anyone, Absolute... OR WILL THEY!!? ~
"After the 450, Mistico shouldíve made a pinfall attempt and not allow Teddy to ďslip out of the ring.Ē And ďan unprotected turnbuckle?Ē Just out of curiosity, why canít a heel get a clean victory? However, I was rooting for Teddy, so good call."
Yeah recaps are hard to get across what happened in certain instances. I saw Teddy using the turnbuckle as more of a 'smart' thing more than a heel thing. But whatever, these heels are nasty pieces of work.
"Didnít I mark for a 3D win? Oh wait, yeah, I DID!! I never saw Spike coming back into the picture. Hopefully, this means heíll drop the Eddie Kingston thing."
You mean, Brother Spike and Cousin Eddie, right?
Temporary measures is how I'd refer to Spike. As said earlier, I'll cover it in the news round-up.
"A tornado DDT followed by a west coast pop? Thatís not exciting. And how is it that the face gets all this momentum, and then the victory? Youíre saying it like he owned Shelley!"
Rey and his experience taught the young Alex Shelley a lesson is how I saw it. Fairly even, but Rey got it when it mattered.
"Elijah gets the victory, huh? Well, I donít really see him in the secondary title picture, but if it keeps you warm at nightÖ"
Yes, yes it does. I love Elijah, and MVP, but that's another story.
"I never expected Goldberg to be eliminated so early, and by MVP? I like how my man Christian is in the bottom two (even though I expected Christian v. Goldberg in the end) andÖ MVP GETS THE WIN!! WHAT THE FREAKíS UP WITH THAT?? HOW DOES A JOBBER PULL OFF THE UPSET AGAINST MY GUY?? BUT A CLEAN WIN ON TOP OF THAT!!"
He's a crafty jobber, that's how damnit! As I was saying I rate MVP highly, and I just felt that a heel needed to win the title straight away. It's kinda easier to write like that, and by that I mean having a heel champ at the beginning of a thread. Gen Ex played a part, distractions mostly. Not to mention that naughty boy Abyss took out 1/4 of the competition in Kennedy.
"Overall, great PPV, man. Looked tops. Where are the backstage segments?"
In future I'll include them, but I tried to include what happened in earlier interviews to a certain degree. There was nothing to note backstage really.
Thanks a lot for the review my man, much appreciated and I've taken plenty on board!
