He started a gimmick as Hollywood Dylan Summers after the filming for The Wrestler happened in CZW basically came out in a Flairesque robe with a manager/agent and refused to do deathmatches etc. Built a feud with Danny Havok who wanted Necro not Dylan and after 6 months+ of build and fans shitting on it Zandig drops it without the big payoff match which should of happened at COD and might of saved the angle instead of wasting 6 months on nothing.

Default ROH Age of Insanity

Kevin Steen vs Jigsaw

Decent way to start off the show, fun and enjoyable with a little underdog twist. Steen uses his superior strength early on to prevent Jigsaw from doing anything, but he finds a gap and is able to counter everything into an armdrag. That is until Steen pulls the brakes with a sick Powerbomb. From then on, it's all Steen so it's evident he's playing the heel in this one. Makes sense - at the last show, he was telling El Generico they need to be more aggressive and not hold anything back, so to be dominated by Jigsaw of all people would just be silly. Besides, Steen still brought his charm that everyone loves him for. Jigsaw's comeback was good too. His forearms and shoulder tackles are doing nothing to phase Steen, so he comes out of nowhere with a loud Enzuguiri followed by a Tornado DDT for a nearfall. Back and forth from then on until Steen hits a Swanton for the win. Good way to start off the show.

**3/4


Rhett Titus vs Delirious

This match was all storyline and it worked really well, I think. Delirious came out depressed and as a result, couldn't get any offense against Titus, who was taunting him throughout, even revealing the "Daizee pants" with her face on them. Jimmy Jacobs then came out and encouraged Delirious to seek vengeance on Titus for stealing his girl and gloating about it, which eventually fired him up and he destroyed Titus by busting him open and hitting 5 Panic Attacks in the corner! After the match being ruled a KO victory to Delirious, Jimmy then asked him to join Age of the Fall, comparing this situation to his love for Lacey. Daizee then comes out to convince him otherwise, but her "betrayal" and lack of persuasive skill doesn't prevent Delirious from siding with Jimmy, leaving a sad fairy tale-like ending, with everyone in this love triangle broken, and only Jimmy to benefit. I'll give **** for the great storyline development and ** for the actual wrestling, so I'll just meet in the middle.

***


Kenny King vs Bryan Danielson

Crowd is VERY hot for this match, they seem rather excited considering it's obviously not gonna be one of Dragon's main event level matches. Dragon comes to the ring wearing a tank top that seems quite suspicious...and when he takes it off he's sporting some MAJOR tan lines! It's actually distracting. But what a match this was. King was the ultimate cocky heel in this, always trying to one-up the more experienced man and having something to say. He was really enjoyable and I kept wanting to see him get his ass kicked by Dragon. Even in defeat, the fact that he managed to last nearly 15 minutes with Dragon is enough to put him over and seem like a credible midcarder. He makes it obvious why out of all the YRR members, he was chosen to come back. Although, I wouldn't have objected to Jason Blade returning too and them tagging, but that would hold King back. Dragon seemed to still be in his happy-go-lucky mode, I was hoping he'd be selling the chairshots by Claudio or be a bit more aggressive as a result. The only sign of that we got was him not letting go of the Fujiwara Armbar after the match. Anyway, this was a great way to start King's singles run and I can't wait to see more of him.

***1/2


Adam Pearce vs Ruckus

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Just looking at who's involved makes me cringe and predict this will be bad. Hopefully Pearce will surprise me once again and put on a great match like the one against Brent Albright. Meh, this was average, nothing more. It was what you'd expect from both guys, with Ruckus' sloppy flips and Pearce's only attribute being his charisma. The only thing interesting about this is that Pearce won by using Albright's finisher, the Half-Nelson Suplex, even then it still looks like Pearce screwed that up.

**1/4


Age of the Fall Rules
Tyler Black vs Austin Aries


So AOTF Rules is meant to be a purely scientific wrestling match. Doesn't quite make sense at first, but as Tyler explained in his promo, it's a test of Aries' self control against someone he hates. Aries doesn't hate Tyler as much as he hates Jimmy, so Tyler goads him by telling him about when he was in the car when Lacey got spiked. Good way of making sense out of this match, because I didn't quite understand at first. For a while, it is very technical. 10 minutes of back and forth chain wrestling with some really interesting sequences. Eventually, for some reason Aries starts striking Tyler with punches and forearms. Ain't that the heelish thing to do in a match like this? It then just seemingly becomes a normal match. I couldn't spot a formula to this, it just seemed like 10 minutes of sticking to the stipulation with no one getting the advantage over the other, then it was the finishing sequence already. I didn't understand it. I'm guessing the point of this match was to prove that Jimmy's mind games were getting to Aries, but even then, it doesn't make his willpower look any good if Jimmy's second-in-command only needs to make one snide comment to set Aries off. Anyway, the match was interesting to watch but I don't quite understand the point of it.

***1/4


The Briscoes vs Jimmy Jacobs & Delirious

So here we have the typical ROH in-crowd, plastic chairshots brawl. But wait, no Necro Butcher? There's a twist. Although it was just another Briscoes vs AOTF members fight, it was quite good. Nothing made it unique from the other brawls, it was just ok. Not much to say here really, like I said, it was just like any other brawl.

***


FIP World Championship
Erick Stevens vs Claudio Castagnoli


At first I was interested in this because it's a glimpse at what heel Claudio will be like, but I'm not that pleased. I find him boring. It's fine that he's not doing his crowd-pleasing moves, but what's replaced them? Just punches, it seems. And a moustache. I actually got pretty bored during this match, I just can't get into Claudio's new personality. He's angry, likes to hurt people. Ok...That just seems to be all there is. Literally the most interesting part of the match was the aftermath when Dragon and Claudio got in a fight and even that ended quickly.

**3/4


Chris Hero & Go Shiozaki vs Brent Albright & Roderick Strong

Pretty good match. Started off kinda slow but got really interesting towards the end. Hero got the win after Sweeney threw him an elbow pad that's apparently loaded with something, then he Roaring Elbowed Roderick. That Young Knockout Kid's a cheat! Just a continuation of the big guys vs Sweet 'n' Sour Inc. feud, nothing more, nothing less. But I especially liked the interactions between Go and Roderick with the mini chop wars. I'm hoping for a match down the line between these two since it's one of the few potentially great Go matches they haven't given away randomly. I do wish Eddie Edwards was present after his match with Roderick as a bit of follow-up to it also.

***


ROH World Championship
Nigel McGuinness vs El Generico


This match was great, and it was destined to be great. Nigel's the most over heel in ROH, Generico's one of the most over faces in ROH. Nigel can play a great bully, Generico can play a great underdog. Nigel was on top from the start, but there were a few times where it seemed like he'd underestimated Generico. Nigel's armwork soon began, which Generico sold great as usual and he used every trick he had to keep him from doing anything. When Generico started his comeback, that's when things got really great. He was able to shock Nigel with Yakuza Kicks out of nowhere and the nearfalls were amazing and had the crowd on their feet. I never knew what it was that was gonna put Generico away and some of the bumps were sick, he always landed on his neck. Then things got really dramatic when Nigel had the London Dungeon and Generico was about to tap, but Steen came down to support him and get him fired up. From then on, he kicked out of every Lariat he received, and that's a lot. It wasn't quite the overkill of the Tyler Black matches, but it was enough to get you on the edge of your seat. Eventually Nigel managed to put him away with a Jawbreaker Lariat and one last London Dungeon attempt. This match made Generico look fantastic...at the expense of all of Nigel's main moves, but everyone kicks out of them anyway. That's one of my few complaints about Nigel - he can never end a match with one finisher. Anyway, this match was very exciting to watch, even just to see Generico's selling of a Lariat.

****1/4

bmxmadb53, I know you love Jacobs, so check out the main event of Vendetta II. Brutal match between Aries and Jacobs. You can probably find a link for it in the media section. Also, whenever Rising Above 2008 airs for PPV (January, most likely), definitely check out Aries vs. Jacobs, I Quit. **** 3/4 of greatness.

You were there? Usually you're in Section B with the rest of us cool kids, but I didn't see you. What were your thoughts on the show? Is it too much to ask for star ratings on everything?
