ROH - SoCal Showdown II
The Bravado Brothers vs. Caleb Konley & Cedric Alexander - **1/2
Colt Cabana vs. Jay Briscoe - **1/4
I'd prefer it if these two went another 9 years without having a singles match.
The All Night Express vs. The Cutler Brothers - ***
If ANX weren't so sloppy and wreckless they'd be a much better tag team. They need to be more crisp with even just the little things.
Davey Richards vs. TJ Perkins - ****
Obviously there was some great technical wrestling in this. Perkins is oh so impressive for his age. Davey puts him over huge after the match, says a ton of guys wouldn't be where they are (including himself) if it weren't for Perkins being there training with them in PWG. Great match.
ROH Television Championship
Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Mark Briscoe - ***
The Kings of Wrestling vs. Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin - ****
Idk how it stacks up against their first match, but this one was pretty damn good.
ROH World Championship
Roderick Strong(c) vs. El Generico - ***3/4
This was so god damn good before the fairly flat ending. Generico is the ultimate underdog babyface and Strong just beats the piss out of him. If their Atlanta match is anything like this, it should be fantastic. I really wanted to yell at my tv though because the crowd got annoying. There was a handful of people that were chanting Rooooderick the entire match and it was ridiculous. They even continued after the match...
A really good, but short, show. Only 2 hours and 15 minutes but you get 3 high quality matches. The crowd does get annyoing at times though. Their chants were pretty random and were at the weirdest times.
