ROH Driven 2009
Austin Aries v.s Delirious-**
-This was a nice opener even if it was a Delirious match. It was a nice way to continue the Aries/Jacob feud without the two actually having the match. I also liked the attack Jacobs put on Aries after the match and Tyler Black getting frustrated, because they had to defend the titles in the main event.
Some Women's Match-N/A
Sweet N' Sour Inc. (Eddie Edwards & Adam Pearce) v.s Erick Stevens & Brent Albright-**3/4
-A nice little tag match here to advance the feud between Albright and Sweet N' Sour Inc. The best parts were obviously the interaction between Pearce and Albright. Those two are fantastic together.
Chris Hero v.s Jerry Lynn-**3/4
-This was a very interesting match. I really wish they would have had a longer match with a clean finish, because these two only scratched the surfaced of what they could have done. What's better than Hero facing one of the most over faces in ROH? No much to say the least.
Elimination Match: Claudio Castganoli v.s Go Shiozaki v.s Bryan Danielson-***
-This match could have been much better. It felt like the main event of Death Before Dishonor all over again, expect in rushed fashion. My *** is rather generous considering everything. I do however want to see another singles match between Shiozaki/Danielson down the line, but I probably felt that way before this match ever took place.
Tag Team Scramble: Jay & Mark Briscoe v.s Vulture Squad (Ruckus & Jigsaw) v.s The YRR (Jason Blade & Kenny King) v.s Necro Butcher-*1/2
-You spotfest hounds will love this nonsense. Ruckus was especially awful here. This should have just been the YRR v.s The Briscoes. Necro Butcher added some nice fists to the face, but he also took a pointless a stunt onto a stack of chairs. It wasn't a hardcore match, so there really was no use for it. What a lame filler.
ROH Title Match: Roderick Strong v.s Nigel McGuinness-****
-I was waiting for months to see these two square off it again. Their first match last year was spectacular and very underrated. This was a good follow up, but I still think it could have been better and they were holding back due to not steal the shine from El Generico and Kevin Steen. I'm fine with that, but I hope to see these two go at it again.
ROH Tag Titles Match: Kevin Steen & El Generico v.s Age of the Fall (Tyler Black & Jimmy Jacobs)-****1/4
-A great main event. Kevin Steen & El Generico get the job done and it looked like it was indirectly because of Jimmy Jacobs attack on Austin Aries earlier in the evening. This was a great way to stir up the tension between Jacobs/Tyler. Also, I can't wait to see how Steen & Generico handle being at the top of the tag division... A place they should have been a while ago.
