They still haven't released Battle Of The Belts? Seems like the only show you'd have to get from this year, can't even remember the last 08 shows they ran.

BTW, was the last show FIP ran the one where Black couldn't make it due to injury and where Kenny King made his face turn?

5/2 show, unnamed as of now. They actually ran a show a few weeks ago which everyone basically forgot about. Card didn't look so hot though.

You'd think 25 snowflake reviews of the same show would be enough but... MOAR TO CUM!

ROH Better Than Our Best
(nice unitentional pun btw)

Six Man Mayhem
Jack Evans vs. Ace Steel vs. Matt Sydal vs. Jake Crist vs. Dave Christ vs. Jimmy Jacobs **

Ricky Reyes vs. Delirious **¾

Jimmy Rave, Alex Shelley, & Masato Yoshino vs. Dragon Kid, Genki Horiguchi, & Ryo Saito ***¾

Four Corner Survival
AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Jimmy Yang Four Corner Survival ***½

ROH Tag Team Title Match
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. CIMA & Naruki Doi ***¾

ROH World Title Match
Bryan Danielson vs. Lance Storm ****

Homicide vs. Colt Cabana (Chicago Street Fight) ***½

----


Overall a very good show and well worth the 10 bucks. Like many have said, Danielson/Storm could've been slightly better. But hell, this was the second time watching the match, and it still had me excited. Just a great match. Call me a whatever-a-bot you like, but this match was entertainment. Wrestling entertainment.

The Street Fight was kind of a letdown, since practically all ratings I had seen were beyond four stars or so. Still, not bad. Throwing alcohol on Homicide's open cut was incredibly lame and awesome at the same time. Hey, don't ask. But they could've used that barbedwire board a little better.

Too lazy to elaborate any better. Expect a deeper insight (eh?) on One Hundred.

ROH Supercard Of Honor IV

Erick Stevens vs. Rhett Titus **

Chris Hero, Eddie Edwards and Incognito vs. Kevin Steen, Jay Briscoe and Magno
Ah that crazy Magno. ***

Roderick Strong vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima
Best under 10 minute match I've seen in a very long time. I didn't even remember Strong selling his leg so well during it. ****-****¼

Four Corner Survival

El Generico vs. Blue Demon, Jr. vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brent Albright **

Bryan Danielson vs. Alex Koslov
This is just great fun. Danielson is all happy and smiling at the beginning of the match, then as the match goes on and Koslov all of his 'RUSSIA' antics, Danielson starts to get pissed off. Once Koslov uses the cattle mutilation and Danielson's elbows, Danielson turns into a raving lunatic. I love it. ***½-***¾

Colt Cabana vs. D-Lo Brown
Much better then I remember it being live. Hell I don't even remember D-Lo getting such a great reaction when he came out. ***

GHC Jr Heavyweight Title Match

KENTA vs. Davey Richards
First of all, I hate the edit job they did.
Finally watching this again helped me to remember just how much shit these two put each other through and then looking back at the botched ending didn't even look that bad. It was more of a KENTA's too exhausted to hit the GTS properly and then when he picked him up again, he thought "Shit, I need to make sure he is definitely out" and just dropped him and decided to go with the original version instead. As for the match, I said this after I first witnessed it....Take their first match, add in Davey's new heel attitude and the fact that both are much better then they were in 2006 and what you get is an amazing contest.
*****

Austin Aries and Jimmy Jacobs vs. Tyler Black and Necro Butcher
Live I was fucking tired during this match after what I had just witnessed. This time around I found it alot more enjoyable. ***-***¼

ROH World Title Match

Nigel McGuinness vs. Jerry Lynn
When people look back on this match, it will be known as the match that Jerry Lynn ended Nigel McGuinness's historic ROH World title reign. While I'll think the same, I'll also remember this as a match that was all about Nigel McGuinness. I don't know how many times I've said this but during this match, Nigel was either in incredible pain or selling like a champion and after watching the match again, I'd think that it was a bit of both because whenever his arms came into contact with anything, he was literally screaming in pain and at the end of the match it was as if he was using all of that pain to psych himself up and unleash one final flurry to keep a hold of his title. Really an amazing match and the atmosphere actually translated quite well to DVD even though it wa obviously even more amazing live. The aftermath of the match is such an incredible moment with Nigel being cheered by EVERYONE in the building. ****½

Overall: Amazing show. Simple as. I would recommend it to any ROH fan and it seems that ROH is currently on a good roll with DVD's. Steel City Clash, 7th Anniversary Show and this show. Hopefully Double Feature II, A Cut Above and The Homecoming II can continue it.

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

ROH Seventh Anniversary Show

Roderick Strong & Erick Stevens vs Kenny King & Rhett Titus

Fun opener. Really like King & Titus as a team. The team has been doing wonders for King. Making him look like the geuine real deal. Titus has been more of a comedy character and thus looked kinda weak in the ring but it works for him. No doubt he's improved in the ring since tagging with King too imo. Shame Strong & Stevens didn't tag more consistently cause they could have been a great addition to an otherwise lacking ROH tag division at the time. Enjoyable opening tag match

**3/4

Brent Albright vs Claudio Castagnoli

Just don't care for either of these on their own so I really don't care for anything they do together. No matter what gimmick match they're in or how many times they wrestle I just wont care for whatever they do against each other. Kinda like the Batista/Orton of ROH. This match wasn't actually half bad in fairness to them though. What's the point in having it go to a 15 minute time limit draw when you're always going to have 5 more minutes. Annoys how after EVERY time limit draw the crowd will chant for 5 more minutes and they always get it. Why not just go 20 minutes from the start. The way they ended the 5 more minutes didn't seem to make sense to me either. They could have easily done that in the originally regulated time without the time limit draw and the extra time. Another thing that annoyed me too was after they announced there was one minute left instead of going for impact moves or submissions they decided to have a punching war for the final 60 seconds. Whatever though. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would but like I said before I just don't care for a Albright/Castagnoli match.

**3/4

Bobby Dempsey vs Adam Pearce

I always laugh to myself when promotions bring in a special guest timekeeper. It's just the lamest reason to bring in an outside guest to a match. Didn't seem like half the crowd knew who the guy was either. Felt a bit akward Pearce coming out as Sweeney's suprise opponent without Sweeney but we all know what happened there. Pearce's pre-match promo was really entertaining and proved why he's a brilliant heel. Granted I don't care for him much in the ring most of the time but he's entertaining on the mic. Enjoyed him ripping the "Special Guest Timekeeper" apart. Kudos to him for booking himself for a squash match too. I know there's people out there who would have been saying Triple H would never do something like that. That's cause Pearce is no Triple H. As much as I love Dempsey, he was much more entertaining when he was being slapped around by Sweet N Sour. Even for a squash it felt too sudden. A splash and then a death valley driver and it's over? Good to see Hagadorn get a decent shirt again. He went from some fly outfits to looking worse than a tramp. If you're thinking about skipping then don't because Pearce's promo is very fun.

DUD

Jerry Lynn vs Mike Quackenbush

Don't know why but these two just really didn't click in this one. Seemed at times as though they were lost together in the ring and didn't know what to do. There was just no chemistry there between them. No great action in the match either. Slow pace and just felt kinda akward watching it. Looked a good undercard match on paper but in reality they just didn't click.

**1/2

Austin Aries, Jimmy Jacobs & Brodie Lee vs Tyler Black, Necro Butcher & Delirious - Revolution Rules

Was there really any need for them stipulations. Maybe it would have made more sense if there was DQs and Count-outs but it was No DQ as well. I haven't cared for this AOTF angle since Tyler left at Final Battle. I don't think Pearce had a clue what to do with Jimmy and Aries after Final Battle. First it seemed as though they would be a duo and then Aries seemed to go his own way and then it just seemed as though Aries was in the match cause Jacobs and Lee didn't have any other members of AOTF left. The match was pretty much to make Tyler look strong and it did. Seems pointless now though as he never got the world title. If the plan was never to give Tyler the belt then they may as well have gone further with the Aries/Jacobs/Black angle they had started. The elimination of Necro and Lee was quite something. I wont spoil it for anyone but it's mind boggling for a match with No DQs or countouts. Haven't cared for a Necro/Brodie brawl since their first one which I didn't care for either so god knows why they continue to do them. The Falls Count Anywhere match the night before was much better imo. Not that this was a bad match though. It wasn't great though. The stips of the match didn't really seem to come into play that much either. Maybe in the last 2 falls a little but it may as well have been a 6 man Falls Count Anywhere match.

***

Bryan Danielson & Colt Cabana vs Bison Smith & Jimmy Rave

This match is all about Colt and Rave's returns. The pop when Cabana came out was just amazing. One of the best pops in a long while. The tease of Grizzly Redwood being Danielson's suprise partner was brilliantly worked. So great to see Cabanarama back in ROH. Rave I don't like but you cant deny he's a natural heel, ala Orton. Bison I haven't really enjoyed in ROH. The squash matches haven't really been too entertaining beside him shouting "Who's' the man!" There seems to be too many squash matches on ROH shows these days too for my liking. On the DVDs if it's not Bison then it's Dempsey. Plus there's at least one on every HDNet show. Match was pretty fun but this was all about Colt and Rave's returns.

***

D'Lo Brown vs Jay Briscoe

That must have been the strangest heel turn ever. D'Lo cuts a face promo before the match which seemed incredibly arkward. Seemed like he was killing some time more than anything. The process of his turn in the match seemed kinda uneasy too. Don't know what but it just didn't come off too well for me. Was kinda like all of a sudden he's gone from playing to the fans to shoving the ref out the way and low blowing Jay. Match wasn't bad though to be fair. Solid, nothing more.

***

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs American Wolves - No DQ - ROH World Tag Team Championships

Onto the two big matches of the card now. This is a really fun brawl. Personally prefered their Tables Match. Oh wait that hasn't technically happened yet and Steenerico are still champs. Continuity ftw. Dunno what happened to Edwards' head but he must have caught a bad bump at the start of the match judging by the massive bruise above his eye. Didn't see it before the match so I'm assuming Steen did it too him. Seemed to affect for the rest of the match too. What's the point in Sara Del Ray coming out to every Sweet N Sout match btw. What does she do? Same goes for Hagadorn since Pearce left. Some nice ladder spots in here, partciuarly Generico's swanton leg drop from corner to corner into the ladder.

Don't want to get into a rambling rant about this please get some steady ladders for wrestling matches. Seriously. @ Extreme Rules the Ladder seemed to buckle far too easily. @ Slammiversary the ladder breaking could have broke Samoa Joe's leg or back if he'd landed on it more arkwadly. And again in this one the Ladder seemed to give way far too easily. Seriously, get some ladders that don't bend and break and buckle underneath you so easily. It's just basic safety precautions in a dangerous match with ladders. The only saving grace is that they're not as bad as the ladders AAA use. If you've seen the 3 Way Tag Ladder match with KENTA from AAA this year you'll know exatly what I mean.

Steen's selling of the leg was great from top to bottom. To coming out during his entrance to after the match. Annoys me so much whenever he's selling a leg injury which seems to be quite often and he goes for a backbreaker or a neckbreaker ON the leg. Granted he sells the leg after every time but use some common sense and don't do it in the first place. Anyway enjoyed the match a lot.

The aftermatch beat down by The Wolves was great too. Shame Davey isn't on NOAH's NTV Cup tour cause him and Eddie in NOAH would have been great. Really enjoyed the beat down after the match. Liked the way it worked back to the last time The Wolves were in the Hammerstein and beat down The Briscoes in similar fashion. Really like subtle flashback stuff like that in wrestling.


***3/4

Nigel McGuinness vs KENTA - ROH World Championship

Now this is a main event worthy of main eventing the Hammerstein Ballroom. Probably my favourite ROH match this year to date (granted that will probably change tommorow when I watch Supercard of Honor though). Nigel is utterly amazing in this. They guy is wrestling with two torn biceps yeah. Not one, but TWO. Add in the fact he's wrestling KENTA who is stiff as in the ring. btw Lenny it's KENTA not KENA. Prazak and Leonard are starting to annoy me on commentary now btw. It's taken a while but I think I understand other people now. Bring back Larry Zybsko.

Anyway back onto the match and I'm not sure how much of it is actually really great selling and how much is genuine pain and discomfort but Nigel sells the torn biceps like a pro. There's good selling and this is great selling. Yeah some of it may be genuine pain but the way he plays with the injuries is great. Most wrestlers can grimace when they get hit in the body part they're trying to sell and stuff like that but Nigel brings some brilliant physchology to the table with the injury to. For example in the opening sequence, not going for chops and punches but headbutts instead to protect his injured arms. My favorutie one is where he has KENTA in the corner and he does his trademark kick to the back and clothesline to the chest combo and he forgets his arm is fucked up and the way he sells it then after using it, which he's been focusing on not doing all match is awesome. Whilst Nigel going for the GTS was incredibly awesome for the fact it's Nigel attempting the GTS, the thinking behind it is incredible. Not only would it be two fingers up to KENTA to beat him with his own finisher but he can't go for his own finisher, The Lariat, because he can't get enough impact on it without knackering his arm up. With the GTS he doesn't have to use his arms as much and thus protects them more. I just love little stuff like that in a wrestling match that make it so complete.

KENTA is fucking awesome as usual in this too. At first when I realised it looked like KENTA was tapping to the London Dungeon I was bit meh on it but the variation Nigel put on it at the end to get him to submit was pretty cool and worked great for me. Made it look extra special and more harmful to get a big name like KENTA to submit. Awesome, awesome match.


****1/4

Overall:
Great show with a fantastic main event. Really worth getting. Solid show all round.
