ROH - Manhattan Mayhem
Losing Team Must Split Up
Izzy & Deranged vs. Dixie & Azrieal - **3/4
Surprisingly good, fun to watch.
Colt Cabana vs. Nigel McGuinness - **1/2
A mixture of comedy and loads of chain wrestling. Not a bad combination.
James Gibson vs. Black Tiger - ****
An absolutely excellent midcard match that I have no complaints with.
ROH Tag Team Title Match
BJ Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs(c) vs. Roderick Strong & Jack Evans - ****1/4
Awesome tag match with some ridiculous spots all the way through.
ROH Pure Title Match
Jay Lethal(c) vs. Samoa Joe - ****
These two never have a bad match. This was probably their best. The Rottweilers coming out to spoil the party afterwards was some classic hardcore shit.
Dog Collar Match
CM Punk vs. Jimmy Rave - ***1/4
I was never really that big a fan of this match, and it gets worse everytime I watch it. Not bad, just not great. The dog collar gets in the way a lot, as I'm sure it does in every match.
ROH World Title Match
Austin Aries(c) vs. Alex Shelley - ***3/4
Another great match, but others like it a lot more than I do. I felt it was kinda slow at times, they just weren't as crisp as usual. A ***3/4 match goes 4th best on the card, you don't see that much.
Impromptu Main Event
Samoa Joe & Jay Lethal vs. Homicide & Low Ki - ***1/4
Not too much of a match, just all 4 guys blastin each other with huge moves. Can't complain there. The cop killa/double stomp combo is probably the sickest double team I've ever seen.
Top to bottom, the best overall wrestling show and the most entertaining show I've probably ever seen. At least the best ROH has ever done, and I haven't seen DBDH VIII yet. Crowd was red hot all night. And to think, they did all this even without two of their top guys at the time, Danielson and Spanky.
