ROH World Title Match
Nigel McGuinness(c) vs. Kevin Steen - ****1/2
This match did a fantastic job of storytelling. Everything unfolded as the match went on, and it was a pretty long one clockin in at 30 couple minutes. The work on Steen's back was well done and believebale, as that bump he took on the apron looked painful as hell. 10 or 15 minutes into the match I kept wondering why this was so highly rated, but then it just kept going and going and getting better and better. Steen scouting the rebound lariat, the one lone Nigel fan who you could hear chanting by himself, and then Steen coming so close to winning the belt in his home country was just all fantastic.
No DQ Match
Austin Aries & Jay Briscoe vs. Tyler Black & Jimmy Jacobs - ***1/2
Definitely a fun little bloody brawl that went from being a tag match to a 6-man tag, then to a handicap match, and finally back to the tag match. Should've been before the World Title match.
This is one hell of a debut for them in Canada. Idk how many people were actually in the crowd but they made it seem like it was the biggest card of the year the whole way through. The matches just kept getting better and better as the night went on, besides the main event. A must have imo.
