Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
ROH: Northern Navigation
1. Chris Hero vs Ruckus - ***1/4
Both guys looked great and got the crowd really amped up. "KO" Hero is growing on me.
2. Delirious vs Kenny Omega - ***1/4
Look Kenny, either be serious or be silly. You can't have it both ways. Still a good match.
3. Sara Del Rey vs Jennifer Blake - **
Jennifer Blake is rediculous...but in an endearingly cute way. Thumbs up I guess.
4. Erick Stevens vs Go Shiozaki - ****
This was very good, even with the awkwardness leading to the finish. Can't wait to see the rematch.
5. Bryan Danielson vs Claudio Castagnoli - ****1/4
I liked their first match at "Vendetta II". I loved this one. Great finish, too.
6. Naomichi Marufuji vs Roderick Strong - ****1/4
MOTN. How is Strong so charismatic in-ring and a vacant drooler on interviews? Marufuji + curly 'fro = owns.
7. Nigel McGuinness vs Kevin Steen - ROH World Title - ****1/4
Just below Fuji/Strong. With some better selling and less overkill, it could have been a classic.
8. The Briscoes & Austin Aries vs AOTF - No DQ Match - ***1/2
Shouldn't have been the ME, but it was still entertaining. Jacobs is a sick, sick dude.
OVERALL - 9/10
Good undercard, great overall flow. The ME should have been after Shiozaki/Stevens, with Steen/Nigel on last. This was a great debut, and the second best ROH DVD I've seen this year (between Supercard of Honor III and Without Remorse).
