I would like to say that ROH "Double Feature" show is mixed. Night one seemed like EVERYONE was off of their game except for a few. The only matches worth mentioning were Strong/Pelle and Go/Albright that were just good matches. Davey and Steen was extremely disapointing(The Main match I was looking forward to) and the main event was boring with the exception of Mark Briscoe going Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon on everyone. The four corner survival really did not have anything worh talking about except that Nigel is over as fuck as a heel. Night one was just not a good night.
Night Two, however, seemed like everyone was on. Davey/Claudio was a nice wrestling match that shows these two have chemistry but I still do not approve the ending because it just seems so anti-climatic.....good match nonetheless tho. VS/H3(Hagadork & Pearce) match was short and didn't take up time so that is a plus
Briscoes/H3 wasn't exactly what I was hoping for but a fine match it was. Albright has showed tons of personality in his matches on both nights if that means anything. Aries/Danielson vs. Mcguinness/Shiozaki was pretty great and MOTN thus far. I take back everything bad I have said about Matthews because the guy is awesome. First he attacks Steen and is wearing a AOTF T-shirt that says "I can't work on it" then he tells the crowd he is going to put on his devasting "Five Star Chinlock". He made me laugh when he said "This is the best chinlock I have ever done" That is just fucking funny to me. Nothing special but nothing horrible ether. Tyler comes out and Small Package piledrivers Steen after the match followed by damn near putting me to sleep with some wack promo. Stevens comes out and they have a match like the previous match before this one. So far night two has ass fucked night one and showed how better it is.
So here is the main event with Eddie Edwards in it and before I get onto le me say this, Edwards is a good talent like Blade. Not more then a year ago him and Blade wrestled against Steenrico in a very good match that showed these guys were more then bench warmers. I personally would like if they let them become a tag team but hey, atleast one of them made it into ROH. Now this match was a absolute WAR
! Got me off guard because everyone was just having at each other and this produced a roller coaster of fun. You had girls going at it, guys beating the hell out of each other, and bell ringers getting treated like teh shit. Total non-stop action through out and was the right match to end the night.
Little off air notes: Richards/Steen saw Richards not even try to show more personality then Steen and that's funny because Steen did the same for Matthews. I also noticed that everyone, most noticably Davey, kept fucking with the guy that rang the bells. Davey, on both nights, kept throwing his hat and slapping his head around. Necro was attacking him with a shirt so lawls to both men there. Nigel's heel personality is over as hell and he just seems so natural at it then others. Danielon must of got some of Trish Stratus's poonani because he was fucking smiling the whole damn night of night one.....Jigsaw honestly looks good without his mask but it would be nice if ROH would give him a FUCKING PUSH! Albright seemed to just attract heat on both nights but that was probably just me.
Overall: ROH was smart to combine both shows because I can't imagine the riot buying a shitty night one alone. Night two was solid through out and helped save the DVD from being a complete failure.
BTW Commentary is back and fucking ALIVE as well. If all Lenny could say was "A punch in the nuts" then I would be a happy man. These two just ripped on everything and seemed to just have a good time instead of what you would usually hear on the other shows.
