Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread
I recived the 4 most recent ROH DVDs in the mail yesterday and usually I watch shows in order but I made in exception this instance. Now, it seemed like there was a lot of questions surrounding "The Bitter End" and whether it should be bought or not based on the thoughts of people who attended the show. So, I figured that no longer would we have to rely on the opinions of others who saw the show live.
The Bitter End
1. Christopher Daniels vs. Matt Cross - **3/4 - ***
2. Ricky Reyes vs. Shane Hagadorn - *
3. BJ Whitmer vs. Tank Toland vs. Colt Cabana vs. Pelle Primeau (Four Corner Survival Match) - **1/4
4. Samoa Joe & Nigel McGuinness vs. Bryan Danielson & Jimmy Rave - ***1/2
5. Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Davey Richards & Delirious - ***1/4 - ***1/2
6. Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Austin Aries & Roderick Strong (ROH World Tag Team Title Match) - ***1/2
7. KENTA vs. Matt Sydal - ****
8. Homicide vs. Steve Corino (Fight Without Honor) - ***1/2 - ***3/4
Overall show rating - ***1/2
Overall I really enjoyed the show and I understand why people who saw the show live said it was bad it was because the crowd itself was horrid and I mean horrid. I was so surprised at how bad this Philly crowd was. They weren't into the matches and they only popped for big spots. Again I was really disappointed in the crowd.
