Well, I've watched 2/3 of the PPV - HOLY SHIT was Aries/Strong dissapointing. The no selling from Aries was entriely stupid and killed lots of the heat, I can see why people are going off Aries nowadays.

Awesome opener to Undeniable, btw.

If you didn't like that, you're gonna hate the Iron Man match.

Here's two highlight reels I made.

Yeah, I don't think I'm gonna even go near Reckless Abandon.

I just had to buy Reckless Abandon before any reviews came out -_-. Oh well, that's punishment for being impatient.

Yeah, me too. I'm still looking forward to the ironman match, even if it's just slightly.

ROH Glory By Honor VI Night 1

1. Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Brent Albright & BJ Whitmer
This match was an alright opener. Now, I haven't seen the Undeniable PPV where this feud started so I really can't comment on whether this match was a good feud progression match or not but this match was alright having no idea what the backstory is. I'll probably have to watch this match again after I see Undeniable to decide whether this match fit nicely into the storyline. However, it appeared to me that these two teams didn't mesh together well at all. Albright and especially Whitmer seemed like they had trouble keeping up with the great duo of Steen & Generico. Nothing really special from this match other than the usual good team work out of Steen & Generico. Overall *1/2

2. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Hallowicked
An alright match which could've used a lot more time. Both of these are very familiar with each other since they both compete frequently in Chikara so I was quite excited for this match but when the match ended I was left asking myself "that's it?" For the amount of time they were given, they worked together well and blended together nicely. I really would've like to have seen what they could've done with an extra 5-7 mins. However, instead of dwelling on what could've been, I'll talk about the match that was. Like I mentioned above, they blended together nicely which was expected and it was a decent back and forth match. The crowd was pretty into the match thanks to the incredibly charismatic Castagnoli so that helped a bit. Overall the match had some decent action and it's always fun to watch Castagnoli wrestle. Overall **

3. Delirious vs. Davey Richards
This match was a really fun match to watch. I was pretty confused as to why this match was taking place because I thought the Delirious/NRC feud was over months ago. Seemed kind of pointless to tie up a loose end this long after the feud ended but whatever. Anyways, I found the match to be really fun to watch. I really liked the psychology going on with Davey doing a very good job of working over Delirious' arm and Delirious doing a good job of selling. The crowd was into this match somewhat as well. Good match which was fun to watch and I was really digging the finish. I thought it was cool how Davey ended up hitting Delirious with the tombstone. Overall ***1/4

4. Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Roderick Strong & Rocky Romero (World Tag Title Match)
I really liked this match and thought it was really good. First off, I was glad to see Romero & Strong get a title shot because it's something fresh and by this point we need some new opponents for the Briscoes. Now, despite whatever criticisms the Briscoes draw, I'm still think they're great and enjoy their work immensely. Anyways, this didn't seem like you typical Briscoes match filled with a lot of spotty offense and moves which could because they were facing Strong & Romero who are a more strike oriented team. I thought the match was really good and as I mentioned above it seemed to stray away from your typical Briscoes match. After seeing this match, I'm really excited to see future Briscoes/NRC matches. Overall the match was very good and was really enjoyable to watch. The crowd was also into the match which helped it as well. Overall ***1/2

5. Jimmy Jacobs, Tyler Black, & Necro Butcher vs. Jack Evans, Ruckus, & Jigsaw
This was a very fun match to watch because it was filled with action. Sure, there wasn't that much psychology but sometimes you just gotta worry less about the psychology and more about enjoying the match and this was one of those times. I thought the action and spots flowed well and it was fun to watch Necro punch the flippy guys in the face. Black & Jacobs are such an awesome team together and I really liked how they showcased their abilities as a team during this match. The crowd was on their feet the entire match as well. Like I said, just a really fun match to watch. Don't expect incredible psychology or whatever just expect a good action packed 10+ minute match. Also, the brawl afterwards was great. It was very ECW-esque and I loved it. It actually made me care about faction warfare for once. Overall ***1/2

6. Mitch Franklin vs. Ernie Osiris (Top of the Class Trophy Match)
What's there really to say about this match? Nothing much. Just a short student match with no real purpose at all. Both men looked sloppy but it's expected. Nothing much going on and no reason to talk about the match anymore. Overall *

7. Bryan Danielson vs. Austin Aries (3rd Mach In The Best Of Three Series)
It's official! It's impossible for these two men to have a bad match together. The past two matches between these two guys were great and I had no idea how they could possibly top their Honor Nation match but they did. This match was awesome in so many ways it's ridiculous and would've definitely been 5 stars had Aries sold the leg/neck some. Despite the selling flaws on the part of Aries the match was flawless. I absolutely loved how they played off their familiarity which resulted in a good bit of reversals. Just some great storytelling there. Then, I was really digging how near the end both men attempted the moves that won them their previous match. I thought that was a great touch to the match. Finally, the crowd was really hot for the match which made it so much more fun to watch. This was seriously one of the best matches I saw for the year of 2007. Great storytelling, great wrestling, and a great crowd. It's ashame Aries didn't sell better because this would've been 5 stars. Overall ****3/4

8. Nigel McGuinness vs. Chris Hero (ROH World Title Match)
Chris is awesome. Man, this was such a great match. Firstly, I absolutely loved the story of Sweeney goading Nigel into the match and Nigel being such a proud champion refusing to backdown to prove to Sweeney and the fans that he was no fluke. The match itself was a lot of fun to watch. I really liked how Hero constantly taunted Nigel and started wearing his shirt. Hero went after the arm nicely and Nigel sold it very well. Another thing I loved about this match was the false finish with Turner getting out of position and then Nigel tapping. Just really good booking there. It also got a nice pop out of the crowd and seeing Hero celebrate with the World Title was great. The crowd was really involved with this match as well and it wasn't hard to get into the match because of all the emotion surrounding it. I can't stress enough how perfectly executed this match was. Hero and Nigel have some awesome chemistry together. Overall ***3/4

9. Mitsuharu Misawa & KENTA vs. Takeshi Morishima & Naomichi Marufuji
OMG~!!! It's Misawa!!! Okay, now that I got that out of the way I can review the match. I enjoyed the match and thought it was really good. It was a cool to see Misawa in a ROH ring despite him doing very little in the match but it was probably for the best. I thought the exchanges between Misawa & Morishima and KENTA & Morishima were great. Also, the final few minutes between Marufuji & KENTA were great. It's always something special when those two meet. My main problem with the match is it seemed way too anti-climatic. It just didn't seem they were building to anything. Also, I didn't really like how Misawa & Morishima were tagged in with like 10 seconds left. Just seemed really pointless. All in all, I really enjoyed the match and thought it was a lot of fun to watch. Some really nice exchanges as I mentioned above. I just wish the match would've had something to build to. Overall ***3/4

Overall show rating - ***3/4
