The Embassy + Masato Yoshino w/ Prince Nanna vs Do Fixer- ****1/2
Four Corner Survival Jimmy Yang vs AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe vs Christopher Daniels- ***1/2
ROH World Tag Team Titles Blood Generation vs Generation Next- ****
ROH World Title Lance Storm vs Bryan Danielson- ****1/4
Chicago Street Fight Homicide vs Colt Cabana- ****

show rating- ***1/2

this had everything you could ask for in a show. there was fast, highflying wrestling in the 6 man and the tag titles matches. there was great technical wrestling w/ the roh title match. there was hardcore/brawling w/ the main even. this is w/o a doubt one of the top 3 best ROH shows ive ever seen (but ive only seen about 15) imo. i'd be a fool not to recomend buying this dvd
i think when you give a show 4 matches with 4 stars, i think you need to up the score. *** 1/2 is too low imo. when you keep coming back to watch the DVD, you're not gonna watch the other ones or just one that you like, but there are 4 awesome ones to come back too.

that's just my opinion. i pretty much agreed with your review except Delirious/Reyes was ** imo.

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.
