ROH Final Battle 2007
1. Ruckus & Jigsaw vs. Matt Cross & Bobby Fish - ** (Was going great until Ruckus' shitty hot tag...decent opener overall)
2. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Larry Sweeney - 1/2* (Kinda lame angle advancer)
3. Necro Butcher vs. Jack Evans (NO DQ Match) - **1/4 (Some fun spots and such, but nothing more)
4. Naomichi Marufuji vs. Davey Richards - ***3/4 (DAVEY RICHARDS is a superb face; shame he sucks as a heel. With 2 more minutes of nearfalls this would be 4*)
5. Adam Pearce, Brent Albright, & BJ Whitmer vs. Delirious, Kevin Steen, & El Generico (Tables Are Legal) - ** (What the fuck? They had perfect circumstances going into this, then they just worked the slowest, most uneventful 10 minutes of wrestling I've seen in a while. Good job. When the spots finally came, they were lackluster and unoriginal. Could have easily been better)
6. Rocky Romero vs. Ernie Osiris - * (Ok squash)
7. Roderick Strong vs. Erick Stevens (FIP World Heavyweight Title Match) - ***1/4 (Their 'Man Up' match, but dragged out and weirdly toned down on the big spots. Steven's selling was awesome and the build was great, but the finising sequence was far too lacking)
8. Takeshi Morishima vs. Bryan Danielson vs. Austin Aries vs. Chris Hero (#1 Contender's Four Way Elimination Match) - ***1/2 (Good stuff, but nothing super great or anything we've seen before.
9. Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black (World Tag Team Title Match) - ***1/2 (Very good, no major problems yet nothing amazing)
Overall thoughts: Show was above average, but considering live reports and such was incredibly dissapointing. I don't know if it was the crowd themselves or ROH turning down the crowd noise, but the crowd were ridiculously quiet throughout the show, and it hurt pretty much every match.
Overall Score: 6/10.
