ROH Bound By Hate
Davey Richards v.s Jerry Lynn-***1/4
-A very good opener. It went back to the Lynn heel/face dynamic that has worked so well. I did enjoy Black/Lynn a little more, but these are the kind of matches Lynn should be in. Too bad we won't see one against Adam Pearce.
Kenny King & Rhett Titus v.s Delirious & Brodie Lee-*3/4
-A decent tag match to put over Delirious and Brodie Lee. Not much else.
Go Shiozaki & Eddie Edwards v.s Erick Stevens & Roderick Strong-***
-A very good tag match here, but Roderick Strong is a genius in any type of match. I just wish we had gotten more Go/Strong interaction. They really should have had a singles match in ROH.
Dog Collar Match: Jimmy Jacobs v.s Austin Aries-****1/4
-Oh my god... This was a fuckin' blood bath and actually got good timing unlike the prior brawls these two put on. I can't wait to see the I Quit between these two. This match was up there with the B.J. Whitmer matches from IWA-MS last year and hopefully the next one lives up to the hype. The only thing I really disliked about this match was the ending. Jacobs had just put Aries into the End Time and had it locked in for a good time, but right afterwards Aries locks in the Last Chancery and wins right away. It was kind of lackluster and made Jimmy Jacobs look really weak. He should have held on for at least a 45 seconds to a minute. Ehh whatever, this was still an incredible match.
Alex Payne v.s Grizzley Redwood-3/4*
-Nothing great here with the lamest thing since Delirious, Grizzley Redwood. What a kid.
Tyler Black v.s Kenny Omega v.s Bryan Danielson-***1/4
-This was a very good triple threat match, but it seemed more about crowd interaction than 3 people trying to win a match. Kenny Omega was pretty good in this outing. There was one spot I really didn't like with Tyler Black doing a moonsault on a bridging Danielson and Omega. Why he couldn't he just kick them? I guess they wanted an over the top spot to piss me off. Nevermind that. Now, Bryan Danielson was of course awesome in this match making both Omega and even Black at times look like they were not even close to his league. In conclusion the match is just a lot of fun.
ROH Title Match: Necro Butcher v.s Nigel McGuinness-**1/2
-At first this match looked like it was going to completely bomb with Necro looking like an oaf as Nigel attempted to work over him. However, it picked up when Nigel started going for Necro's injured leg. They also had some nice nearfalls near the end when Brodie Lee and Delirious ruin the match. This had potential to be a *** match even with it not being a Necro style brawl. Oh well, maybe next time.
ROH Tag Team Title Match: The Briscoes v.s El Generico & Kevin Steen-****1/2
-Incredible tag team match here. These two teams are always great against eachother and they didn't lose a step after not facing eachother for so long, but I got to admit I never actually saw their Ladder War and don't try talking me into it. I usually hate Ladder matches, so I avoided seeing it. However, this match was good enough to suffice my wrestling needs. I'm totally looking forward to another match between these two teams and I think they have another one already out on DVD. I'll totally get there... someday.
