Like for Philly the top 3 ratings were-****, ***1/2 & ***1/2. That doesn't shout must buy for me like it would for others, since I don't buy to much. BTW this was from this site.
Chicago's show was amazing in every single way. Maybe it was because I had the first row and that made it that much better, but everything on the card was solid. The best match of the night was Briscoes/Lords of the Ring, I have it at ****1/4 and possibly as the best tag match I've ever seen, but I'm going to rewatch it when I buy the DVD so I don't pass judgement.
Jacobs/Colt was awesome with some absolutely SICK spots. Without spoiling some of the spots, ladders, barbed wire bats, chairs, tables, scissors, and some sort of spike were all used. Very hardcore and violent, if you don't like bloody type deathmatches, don't watch it but it was one of the better ROH brawls I've ever seen.
Brent/Albright and the main event (Nigel/Shima' vs. Joe/Cide) were solid too, both at ***1/2 for me. Again though, I don't know how accurate my ratings are, I was so into the show that night that I might be hallucinating a bit.
All in all, definitely get it. I'm positive it's worth the buy and you can't go wrong with the FYF Chicago show on 2/24.
