Ya, I could see the Briscoes holding the belts foe a year as well. but i would really like to see a title change soon. On a brighter note, I just finished Honor Nation and here is a quick review.
Brent Albright & Adam Pearce vs. Eric Stevens & Matt Cross - *** (Really fun opener and got the crowd pumped)
Bj Whitmer vs. Delirious - **1/2 (Nothing bad but seen it all before. Very basic and formulaic)
El Generico vs. Nigel McGuinness vs. Hallowicked - ***1/4 (Very enjoyable match with some cool spots at the end)
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero - ***1/2-***3/4 (Amesome match and the pre match stuff was hillarious. I don't think these two could have a bad match if they tried)
Anything goes: Necro Butcher vs. Jay Briscoe - **3/4 - *** (Honestly, this was kind of dissapointing, but my hopes were pretty high. There were some nice spots and the brawl was cool. However, it was a short match with an overbooked ending)
Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black vs. Mitch Franklin & Ernie Osiris - N/R (Squash)
Austin Aries vs. Bryan Danielson - ****1/4 (Fantastic match and everything you would expect from these two. MOTN)
Vulture Squad vs. No Remorse Corpes - ***3/4-**** (Another excellent match with nonstop action. Both teams gave it their all and the Vulture Squad looked really good)
World Title: Takeshi Morishima vs. Kevin Steen - **** (Wow, the third great match in a row. Unlike most Shima defences, Steen actually dominated most of the match and it was really great. Some good near falls and a hot crowd)
Thoughts: What an awesome event. Great variety of stuff on the show and the last three matches delivered in a big way. One of the most enjoyable shows roh has put out all year. I know most people will disagree, but I liked this more than Manhattan Mayhem 2. Definetly check this out.
