Death Before Dishonor VIII 06/19/2010 (8.5/10)
El Generico vs. Kevin Steen ***1/2
Both should have shown a little more intensity and hatred. Generico looked to the crowd for too much attention, but this actually doesn't bother me too much since he ended up losing, and also adopted the darker Generico gimmick that doesn't even acknowledge the crowd.
The All Night Express vs. Up in Smoke **3/4
Austin Aries vs. Delirious **1/2
2nd Annual Toronto Gauntlet
Eddie Edwards vs. Colt Cabana vs. Roderick Strong vs. Shawn Daivari vs. Steve Corino vs. Tyson Dux **3/4
Pick 6 Challenge Match
Christohper Daniels vs. Kenny Omega ****
World Tag Team No Disqualification Title Match
Kings of Wrestling vs. the Briscoe Brothers ****
I certainly felt the hate in this one.
ROH World Title Match
Tyler Black vs. Davey Richards ****1/4-****1/2
Match was on the way to Best Match of the Year.. and then Shane fucking shows up. The match kind of loses its edge after this, and I felt as if everything just slows down a little from here. They kind of bring it back near the end, but I didn't like how Tyler just picks up Davey and finishes him off. What the point in taking down his knee pad if he didn't use his knee? Anyway, still REALLY fucking good, although I feel we were cheated of something that could have been a little more. Gonna need a re-watch to really grasp everything in this match.
Really enjoyed how both men couldn't believe they were still fighting, and Tyler did a fantastic job of making it seem like there was nothing he could do to keep put Davey away. And even though I didn't like Shane showing up, I did like his demeanor, it was like he had just gone threw hell with the Briscoe brothers and wanted to leash out on the closest enemy at the time.
Best ROH show of the year I'd say. A touch better than Supercard of Honor.
