I'd say it was Steen who got Pearce to book him. They worked together in IWS and all around Canada along with Generico and the Super Smash Brothers among others.

Well maybe Steen is actually crazy... Although i did like the inclusion of the Smash Bros. Hopefully with Delirious as booker we see a few more guys in ROH like SSB or hopefully Chucky T.

I actually kinda liked Franky's match with D-Lo.

Both nights of DBD were fun shows, including probably the best new Embassy match ever in the elimination tag. Both of Hero's matches were good as well, and Generico/Dutt was surprisingly good. While watching them I felt like I was watching a PWG show, which is probably a good thing.

ROH: Bitter Friends Stiffer Enemies II

Rasche Brown vs. Sami Callihan

I loved the way this started, Sami just looked like a maniac and Brown played his role well to. It was just hilarious to see Callihan screaming, "Come on Rasche!" only to get hit with some type of insanley painful looking move. The fact that Sami kept pissing Brown off just made it that much more entertaining.

Besides these antics they tried to structure a match in and it sort of worked. Brown came in with taped ribs and it was good to see Sami Callihan go after them. Brown actually sold them pretty well to which was more than I was expecting. Pretty good match actually since they managed to mix in all these power moves and high impact spots with a match that actually made sense. A nice short length helped a lot as well.
**3/4


The Dark City Fight Club vs. The Bravado Brothers


I feel bad for the Bravado Brothers. I'm not one for caring if a guy has "the look" but damn these guys just look like jobbers. They're decent enough workers and they're only going to get better as time wears on but I have a hard time seeing them go that far. Which is a shame because from the little I've seen of them they are decent enough workers.

Pretty basic match but it worked. The Bravados put a better effort then I expected but DCFC could have made them look a lot better. They hit some really nice offense and the guy kicked out at 1. It was pretty much a squash because DCFC didn't really sell anything. It just kind of pissed me off because some selling would have gone a long way.
*


Metal Master vs. Eddie Edwards

This was really very average. In fact average is really the only word that comes to mind when thinking about the match. I can't think of any big highlights of the match, no move really stuck out above the rest of the match. The bad commentary moments are the only parts I remember (like the one guy saying he had never seen a Crippler Crossface before).

The match had no real focus. There wasn't any type of story that I can describe like I could for the previous matches. They wrestled back and forth at an average pace for over 10 minutes. Once again average. I really wasn't too impressed with the Metal Master very much either. I'm also starting to think that Edwards needs a really good opponent to wrestle with in order to have a good match.
**


The House of Truth w/ Truth Martini vs. Erick Stevens and Shawn Daivari w/ Prince Nana

Pretty fun match early because both teams were essentially heels and it was nice to see them try to out cheat each other. Nana also threw water at a fan and said, "You're dead to me." so that just added a whole lot to the match.

It's too bad after those first few minutes of good stuff this match got boring, really boring. I literally fell asleep while watching it. Dead crowd and the wrestling they were doing was not impressive in the least bit. It got better towards the last few minutes of the match (I had to go back and pick up the match near the end after I took my unplanned middle of the day nap) but it just doesn't make up for how bad parts of the match were early on. And this match lasted far too long as well.

To sum things up, 3 minutes of OK, and like 12 minutes of crap.
1/2*


Roderick Strong vs. Davey Richards

If this is the match that ROH decides to go with to main event Final Battle then I can't wait after seeing this match. Yeah they just threw bombs at each other the whole time but this was pretty much the perfect way to show how evenly matched they were. When you put two of your top contenders in the ring with each other and they both come out looking stronger then they did before the match began you are doing something right.

Look this match suffers from some of the most blatant and obvious indy overkill that you will ever see. It worked here because they went to a draw though. They just threw everything they had at each other and neither guy was able to get the win. I also think Davey died when he dove into the crowd. He must have gone to hell, kicked Satan's ass and Jesus was too afraid to tell him he was dead so he brought him back to life because that's the only he could have gotten up from the insane dive he took.

ROH really should have put more effort into booking a rematch here. I expected it to be good but nowhere near this great. It just kept getting better right until the end. I give it a very high,
****1/4


Petey Williams vs. Rhett Titus

"If I have hepatitis you're probably gonna get it too buddy." This statement, made by Titus at the start of the match, really shows the joys of watching this show without commentary. It's nice to be able to pick things like that up. I have to say that Titus does a really good job of getting his character to show up during his matches. He really just comes across as a despicable human being that you just want to see get beat up.

Williams tried to be this cool badass face but it just didn't really work all that well. His offense was pretty average for the most part with a few exceptions and I just found myself wanting to see him hit the Canadian Destroyer the entire match, which he never did. I don't like it when the one trick pony doesn't hit his trick.

The match was decent enough though, pretty good pace and the offense both guys hit was good enough. Nothing special but there wasn't anything all that wrong with it either.
**1/4


Kenny King and Austin Aries vs. The Briscoes


So going in there was some talk about King and Aries having some issues getting along and working together. After a Aries promo were it was announced they were "As thick as thieves" they went on to work together and do a fantastic job of heeling it up together. Besides all the cheating they did they also wrestled a really smart tag match together.

The Briscoes didn't need to do much other then be themselves as any face team could have made the story aspect of the match work. The action was really good as well and I was impressed to see that they kept it fast paced the whole time. I loved the ending to because it was so perfect with the way King and Aries had been acting. King had a Briscoe on his shoulders and he got pulled off and they threw Aries onto his shoulders. King didn't notice and hit his finisher on Aries.

Good match right before we got to the main events of the show.
***1/2


ROH World Championship Match
Tyler Black (c) vs. Chirs Hero

What I really loved about this match was that Black made Hero look so good. Of course Tyler has to sell for the guy but he didn't need to let Hero dominate so much early on. And Hero really ran with it. It looked like he was hands down just better then Tyler early on. He was trash talking a lot of brought the asshole confidence to a really high level. It's one of my favorite pure heel performances by Hero since the CZW angle.

Anyway the action was good and they of course hit that fever pitch near the end which is always just awesome. This was the first Tyler Black title defense outside of New York that I've seen and I was really impressed with him.

Come as You Are Street Fight:

Kevin Steen and Steve Corino vs. El Generico and Colt Cabana

Steve Corino automatically wins this match for wearing an all white suit to the "Come as You Are Street Fight."

And it's amazing how much hatred you could just feel in the match. This was just an all out war between the teams and it's the perfect example of how you should work a hardcore match. After seeing this match I've come to the conclusion that this is the best feud going in wrestling right now.

They fought all over the building and when they climbed onto the scaffold is was just a really scary moment. Without going into too much detail they pretty much tried to kill each other for 20 minutes. It was really pretty amazing. Better then the Chain Match they had and I was there live for the Chain Match. Can't wait to see more from these guys.
****1/2



This was a really good show overall. It had a few bad matches but the Street Fight, Black/Hero, and Strong/Davey make this show a must buy.

Man, I love RhettTitus. But Petey Williams is an abortion, I almost feel bad for the guy for trying so hard yet sucking so much.

Corino wearing a white suit to a bloody brawl makes him the greatest man to ever live, sorry Aries.

I can't figure it out with Williams. It's not that he's lazy in the ring, he's athletic, and has a cool finisher. His matches just aren't good though.

And I'll call you Corino in a white suit for a street fight and raise you this picture of Austin Aries,

Anyone know if Jimmy Rave had some problems with ROH? His last appearance was the dog collar match with Necro and he hasn't been booked since. He's not a GREAT talent, but he brought a little credibility to The Embassy at least and I can at least stand to watch him wrestle.

They probably just didn't want to use him anymore, sort of like when Brent Albright disappeared after his feud with Claudio ended. Honestly I don't even know if Rave coming back as the crown jewel could help the endless black hole of suck that is The Embassy.

You're probably right, but if they would let him have a legit singles feud with someone worth a shit, I'd welcome him back to the roster.
