I've lost count of the amount of money they've saved me by not having DVD versions of their older comps.

Even though i have to admit there's a certain retro feel to actually watching real "tapes"...

ROH - The Homecoming II


Claudio Castagnoli vs Jimmy Jacobs vs Roderick Strong - ***

Jimmy Rave vs Bryan Danielson - ***1/2

Chris Hero vs Tyler Black - ***1/2



ROH World Tag Team Championship
2 Out Of 3 Falls
American Wolves vs Kevin Steen & Jay Briscoe


Last show I wasn't sure why Steen and Jay were teaming. This show I'm not sure why they're challenging for the belts. I really don't understand the booking when it comes to Steenerico and The Briscoes. Does their past history mean they still hate each other or not? Because I think there would be some objection to possibly winning the titles with a person you hate. This is the Match of the Night so far, and I don't think Lynn/Cabana is going to take over. The intensity in this was great and it featured good performances from everyone involved. I loved the interactions between Davey and Steen, they're always great. Especially this one particular moment where Steen locked in the Sharpshooter and Davey locked in the Cloverleaf, so when they turned around to face each other at the same time, the whole crowd just went "Ohhh...this will be good". Before they even had to spit at each other, it was epic intensity. Children cried. A woman fainted. Men had heart attacks. Vincent Vega said it was intense thing he'd ever witnessed. The match was well-structured for a 2/3 falls match and by the end it did seem like they'd been through quite a battle. It was just the right length as well and didn't feel like they'd entered overkill at all. The aftermath was pretty great too with Jay and Steen arguing. It just seemed like typical fighting between them before the slap and the real insults. Very, very good match.

***3/4


ROH World Championship
Jerry Lynn vs Colt Cabana


Dissapointing for a world title match. It was really slow and with very little offense and to me it just felt like it dragged on. I thought this would be the point in Colt's return when we finally get a great match out of him and he'd do his best for the big title match, but he was still unimpressive as he's been since he came back. The comedy just felt out of place to me in a title match, making the world title seem unimportant. The ROH title is constantly being put over as being something you have to be at your absolute best when competing for, so for Colt to be mocking Todd Sinclair just didn't seem right. I was really bored by this up until Colt did a Pepsi Plunge, but the excitement was brief, as Lynn hit the Cradle Piledriver soon afterwards. Colt cut a promo saying how he had a dream to return to ROH and win the title in front of his home crowd...which would be a LOT more emotional had this been a great hard-fought match. The main reason to buy this DVD would be the previous match, not the main event.

***1/4

That is why it's called organized crime.

ROH Manhattan Mayhem III


Rhett Titus & Kenny King vs. The Young Bucks - ***1/4
Great opener. The Bucks are on a roll and King & Titus are getting better as a team.

Necro Butcher vs. Jimmy Rave - *1/2
End. This. Now.

Roderick Strong vs. Sonjay Dutt - ***1/2 - ***3/4
By far Dutt's best match in ROH. Black or Davey's probably the only two on the list for a title reign, but the consistently underrated Strong should be added to it.

First Blood Match
Tyler Black vs. Jimmy Jacobs N/A
The match was just storyline to get Black in the title match later.

Four Corner Survival
Bryan Danielson vs. Colt Cabana vs. D-Lo Brown vs. Claudio Castagnoli - **1/2

World Tag Team Titles - Submissions Match
The American Wolves vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico - ****

Jay Briscoe vs. Guido Maritato - **
Much like Dutt/Jacobs from Contention, completely unnecessary.

ROH World Title
Jerry Lynn vs. Austin Aries vs. Tyler Black - ***1/2
Seemed like it dragged on until Lynn was eliminated. The crowd was certainly happy once he was gone.

A lot of filler on the undercard dragged the show down. Aries winning the title was great and the show is just about on the level of 7th Anniversary, but not as good as Final Battle 08.

ROH The Homecoming II (4/25/09)

Rasche Brown vs. Egotistico Fantastico **1/2
Way better than I was expecting. These guys aren't too bad.

Austin Aries & Rhett Titus vs. Silas Young & Alex Payne ***1/4
This match surprised me. Young is really good, IMO, and if given the proper chance, he could actually have some awesome singles matches.

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Roderick Strong vs. Jimmy Jacobs *
With these three guys, you wouldn't think in a million years they would have such a bad match. I think it was a weird combination though.

The Phoenix Twins (Tweek & Dash) vs. Dark City Fight Club (Jon Davis & Kory Chavis) **1/4

Jimmy Rave vs. Bryan Danielson ***3/4

Chris Hero vs. Tyler Black ***1/4

ROH World Tag Team Championship
The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) (c) vs. Kevin Steen & Jay Briscoe ****1/2

ROH World Championship
Jerry Lynn (c) vs. Colt Cabana ***3/4

Good show. Some matches were either disappointing or unnecessary. Some were surprisingly good. Worth watching.



ROH Never Say Die (5/8/09)

Delirious vs. Ricky Reyes **

Kenny King & Rhett Titus vs. Player Uno & Player Dos ***1/4
Solid, solid, solid match. Someone explain to me why Dos didn't wear his mask in this one. Did he lose it or something?

Jay Briscoe vs. Necro Butcher *3/4

Davey Richards vs. Kevin Steen ****1/4

Bryan Danielson vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Eddie Edwards ***1/4
People need to get off Sonjay's case. He's a great worker and a great entertainer. Good match.

Claudio Castagnoli, Joey Ryan & Jimmy Rave vs. Brent Albright, Erick Stevens & Colt Cabana ***3/4
Gotta admit that I didn't expect much out of this match. I'm not a big fan of 6-man tags (unless, of course, it's King of Trios ). This was awesome though.

ROH World Championship
Jerry Lynn (c) vs. Chris Hero ****1/4
Wow, I really got into this one. Apparently, moreso than most people here. This got pretty crazy. I'm really becoming a huge fan of Hero, as if I wasn't already a big fan of his.

Pretty damn good show. 'Nuff said.

Steen vs. Davey was awesome. Lynn vs. Hero was pretty damn good, but **** at most. The tag title match from The Homecoming II was great, although the 2/3 falls stip felt kinda random and you knew there was absolutely no way Steen and Jay were winning, cause then Mark and Generico come back and what the hell happens? Still a good match though.

Of all the shows from that crazy nine-week stretch where they had seven weekends of shows (stretching from Insanity Unleashed to Validation), I'd say that after Tag Title Classic, Never Say Die was my favorite "B" show (I haven't seen Validation yet, but don't anticipate it being all that great). Just a fun show all around with two really good matches and a main event that felt fresh.

I usually just skip Necro Butcher matches on DVDs. I've never found him entertaining at all.

Necro vs. Danielson in PWG is worth seeing. The match that helped save my interest in wrestling.

That entire show fucking rocks, but yeah Necro/Danielson was just plain awesome clash of styles. Makes me wonder about KENTA/Necro. Hmmm...

I needed something short and very good to save me after sitting through a comp of Super Dragon & Davey Richards.
