Also who is that in your gif? I know it isn't but it looks like PAC.
They're completely different to what they were in ROH.
It's is PAC. He rules.

Seriously? ****1/2 is like MOTYC level, which that match was not IMO. It starts fast and good. Then the heat perdios/Embassy work over period is slow and very boring. I had to stop watching the match, then come back to it later due to my boredom. Then yes, the finishing sequence is awesome, but not enough to merit a ****1/2 rating.

Davey Richards vs Masaaki Mochizuki - **3/4 (decent enough match just didn't think it was anything special)
Jimmy Jacobs/Lacey vs BJ Whitmer/Daizee Haze - ** (Just another brawl and hard to follow with the split screen)
Naruki Doi/SHINGO vs The Briscoes - *** (just as the match started to heat up Mark unfortunately messes up his spot but admirable credit for the other 3 trying to salvage the match)
Yamato vs Pelle Primeau - *3/4 (meh)
Nigel "The Lariat" McGuinness vs Brent Albright - **3/4 (decent just not into Albright at all)
Homicide vs Christopher Daniels - *** 1/4 (not bad, not awesome)
Roderick Strong vs Jack "no-spine" Evans - **** (awesome match possibly jacks best singles match ever)
Typhoon vs Aries/Castignoli/Romero/Delirious - **** (good sprint and a fun one at that)
All and all I have mixed feelings about the show. All the non-match stuff goes well and really flows into the show like the Sammartino bit, promo's (Huss has an awesome promo at the end), Cornette's return etc, and a big + was lots of Larry Sweeney to go around for everyone. But as far as the matches (aside from the last two) everything else I thought was fairly average or uninteresting.
Honest opinion is that this is a passable show if you can download the last two matches. I'll watch SCOH II and post feelings later.
Strong/Evans was really good. I couldn't get into it that much, but still a really exciting match, with a good story told. **** for rating.
The DG/ROH 8 man was INCREDIBLE. Tons of little touches made this great. Everything was smooth. Everyone got to show their stuff. The final few minutes were simply phenomenal. ****1/2 for rating.
I've watched some of the undercard - so far pretty 'meh'.
I pretty much agree with you, McQueen.
