You talk about how much you liked Ring of Homicide due to match variety. But you also really like Dethroned (11/25). How come you like it so much, yet it doesnt have much match variety - 3 hardcore matches - the main event, Whitmer/Jacobs, Strong/Shingo.
(to anyone else)
How come on April 1st, 2006 (4/1) Irish Airbourne worked for 2 promotions? They were in the 6 Man Mayhem at ROH's Better than Our Best, and also were in a 9 man TLC match at IWA:MS's We're no Joke show. ?
Any help will be appreciated and maybe repped. Thanks.
I liked Dethroned because there wasn't a bad match on the card, nothing below **, maybe even **1/2 to some people. I'd say the entire card, aside from 2 or 3 matches, reaches over *** and higher. Also, Whitmer/Jacobs was just amazing to watch, really brutal in a storytelling way with some sick moves mixed in to keep it enjoyable. The tag title match nearly stole the show, but I preferred Aries/Richards, both were tremendous matches. The main event was MUCH better from their MCM match, but really, that's not saying much. I can honestly say that after thinking back on the event, a lot of the matches were great, Strong/Shingo, Richards/Aries, KoW/LOTR, Whitmer/Jacobs...man, I'm happy I went
As for IA only working two shows, one of them had a broken arm, I believe it was Jake Crist (I think that's his name), so they took a break.
To whoever ordered Best Of Steiner Brothers: I haven't finished it yet, but three fantastic matches so far. ***1/4, ***3/4, and ***1/2. The second match featured Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow, and damn, big men should NOT be movingf the way they do in the ring!
