Final Battle 2007
Just one to complete my order. Thanks in advance to anyone caring enough to help.
Night of Champions has Joe's title win and another good match in the AJ/Red vs. Briscoes series. Besides that, nothing else to write home about.
Gut Check has only a few good things going for it. Briscoes vs. Cide/Davey is really good with a very hot finish. If I remember correctly, there's a Cornette promo that is fucking horrible and just drags (I remember it going 15 minutes or something, I might be thinking a different show). The awesome ROH Tag Team Title match between Aries/Strong and Sydal/Daniels. The main event was very lackluster imo, but good. I know a lot of people on here who love it. I personally liked it more than the Nigel/Danielson 2/3 falls match from the night before, but that isn't saying much since I have it at ***. The Jacobs/Whitmer match is very very disappointing since it's complete shit compared to their other matches together in ROH.
Final Battle 2007 is a great show and the one I recommend as the best. Necro vs. Evans is surprisingly good. Marufuji vs. Davey is a great match (I hope they face each other again sometime in ROH). The Tables Are Legal match is hit or miss (miss for me, I hate tables matches in ROH). Strong vs. Stevens in another great match, the crowd kind of ruins it tho. The 4 Way between Danielson, Aries, Hero, and Morishima is fucking awesome. There are tons of markout moments in the match. Finally, Briscoes vs. AOTF is an excellent match, but like every match on the card, the crowd brings it down a notch. I think the only match they were actually good for was the 4 Way and if I remember correctly, Nigel's promo.

Really? TMW isn't anything special? You mean besides having one of the best openers in ROH history, a really good Aries/Styles match, Curry Man filling in for Daniels, and a classic **** 1/2 -3/4 match between Danielson/Strong? You're insane
