Roderick Strong, Brent Albright & Ace Steel vs Chris Hero, Davey Richards & Go Shiozaki ***1/4
Jimmy Jacobs vs Austin Aries - I Quit Match ****1/4-1/2
Nigel McGuiness vs Bryan Danielson - ROH World Championship ****1/2+
Overall: Amazingly awesome show. Definatly get to watch it. The 2 main events are absolutely amazing yet two totally different matches. Normal ROH PPV format. 1st hour crammed in with quick short matches ended by the Sweet N Sour tag match and the 2nd hour dedicated to 2 lengthy great matches. 1st hour often is a let down for me but I loved everything on it. Every match is great for what it is even the 4 way match. Definate watch.

I'd definitely say so, if the crowd was dead aswell then it would of been the worst ROH show in a good few years imo.
The best match on the actual show ended via DQ.
No wonder they added Joe/Black to the DVD.
EDIT: In terms of match quality the show isn't terrible at all (Strong/Hero was on it's way to be awesome) but alot of things on the show didn't make sense.

Fantastic PPV. I'd actually say the best since Man Up. Briscoes/Steenerico while short was entertaining, the SHIMMER title match was GREAT, a fun FCS that got Claudio over looking strong, usual fun SnS tag and then the second hour featuring 1 of the best double main events in ROH history
