The only way i can see this being a real part of a match is if the last guy has the other guy tapping while the last pin was a submission too so he lets go and gets rolled up or something.
(don't have a clue how this one ended btw, so i'm not spoiling anything hopefully)
Might be a decent finish but that's the only reason i can think for booking that, and i can't think of any reason any wrestler would push for a stip like this in story terms.
What i'm saying is that it seems like a needless stip just for the sake of having a stip to put on the card other than "Special Attraction Match" or something similar.
Roderick Strong & Erick Stevens vs. Rhett Titus & Kenny King - **1/2
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brent Albright - ***1/4
Bobby Dempsey vs. Adam Pearce – N/A
Jerry Lynn vs. Mike Quackenbush - **3/4
Tyler Black, Delirious, & Necro Butcher vs. Jimmy Jacobs, Brodie Lee, & Austin Aries - ***1/4
Bryan Danielson & Colt Cabana vs. Bison Smith & Jimmy Rave - **1/2
Jay Briscoe vs. D-Lo Brown - ***
ROH World Tag Team Titles
Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards - ****
ROH World Title
Nigel McGuinness vs. KENTA - ****1/4
The last two matches make this show. The mystery partner tag was special just for Cabana and Rave coming back and Lynn/Quackenbush was boring. The R. Rules match had an ok ending, but the middle part was the reason so many of the live reports killed it.
