ROH 7th Anniversary Show



Roderick Strong and Erick Stevens vs. Kenny King and Rhett Titus

The crowd really seemed to enjoy Rhett Titus getting his ass kicked. I can't blame them either as he had a really obnoxious and easy to hate heel character. What surprised me about this was how evenly matched they seemed. Over two years ago ANX (I don't think they even called themselves that at the time) really wasn't taken as much of a threat in the tag team division yet they seemed really close at times to scoring the win against a big ROH star in Strong and Erick Stevens. They didn't even need to cheat all that much to take them to the limit either. The avoided overkill and kept things nice and short (they maybe hit the 10 minute mark). Really good match.
***



Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brent Albright

A real heavyweight fight is something that we see all that often in Ring of Honor or independent wrestling in general. I think it's for that fact alone that this match was able to get my attention and hold on to it. I understand that these two were feuding going into the match but this really could have been cut a little shorter by giving it an ending instead of a time limit draw. They had this good control segment by Claudio followed by a nice comeback by Brent. They just rook too long to get to the finishing stretch. The best example of this would be how the crowd was really getting into the match and Claudio killed the crowd by throwing Albright out of the ring instead of keeping the finishing stretch going. Granted they just did it so they could stall for time but it really killed the momentum they did a great job building. The match was still really good but a 12 or 13 minute match with an ending would have made this a lot better. Also the way they restarted it only to have a DQ a minute later was kind of lame. I still liked it a lot though.
***



Bobby Dempsey vs. Adam Pearce w/Shane Haggadorn and Sara Del Rey


Dempsey squashes him in less than a minute. No need to make it last longer I guess.
1/4*



Mike Quackenbush vs. Jerry Lynn

I was really excited to see this match as I really tough these two would be able to work well together. I thought the match was good but they went about in a much different way then I was expecting. I was kind of hoping to see a really fast paced technical match but they went for a more story driven approach with Lynn working the head of Quackenbush. Quackenbush played a good underdog babyface with the way he took some of the bumps on his head and his comeback offense. Lynn however showed no personality at all. He wasn't a face, he wasn't a heel, he just did his moves and showed virtually no emotion. The story they told was still interesting though and there were some very nicely done technical sequences.
**3/4


Revolution Rules Match:
Austin Aries, Jimmy Jacobs, and Brodie Lee vs. Tyler Black, Necro Butcher, and Delirious

Kind of cool seeing all the former AOTF members uniting against Jimmy Jacobs. I also marked big time for the for the live action split screen circa 1995 WCW. While the action itself wasn't the greatest thing ever, it was a pretty average brawl for the most part, the roles that they had everyone play was done perfectly. Brodie Lee was brought in solely to take out Necro, which he did. Jacobs was the evil leader but Aries wasn't one of his followers so there was a lot of tension between them. This was also a match were you could tell that ROH had big plans for Black as he was able to beat both Aries and Jacobs by himself. This is a match where it's more about well they did everything than what they did.
***



Bison Smith and Jimmy Rave w/Prince Nana and Ernesto Osiris vs. Bryan Danielson and Colt Cabana

The returns of Jimmy Rave and Colt Cabana were awesome. rave got a really good reaction but the sustained pop that Colt got was pretty incredible. The match itself was good but without the returns it really wouldn't have been anything all that special. It's really all about the moment of Colt coming back and it was all a blast to watch. Post match with "The Final Countdown" and Cabana celebrating on the same corner over and over with Danielson was pretty funny as well.
**3/4


D-Lo Brown vs. Jay Briscoe

D-Lo was great in this match. He came out acting like a face, shooting on WWE and playing to the crowd. Well once Jay got the best of him a few times by his quickness D-Lo lost it and hit a low blow on Jay while the ref was looking the other way after D-Lo shoved him. From that point on he was in full heel mode. The best way to picture the structure of this match is a WWE like pace but with more indy moves. And that's not a bad thing at all. Brown, or someone like him would be a great addition to the roster as he was more willing to be a heel and not do all sorts of crazy moves. The fact that he got a good face reaction when the match started and was being booed at the end is an impressive feat in front of the smarky NYC crowd.
***1/4



No DQ Match for the ROH World Tag Team Championship:
The American Wolves vs. Kevin Steen and El Generico(c)

I loved everything about this match. It was a war that really set up the continuation of this feud. Steen went in with a knee that was already messed up and the Wolves went right after it. This is the same knee that would later fool everyone into thinking that Steen was going to retire, so to say Steen sold it well would be an under statement. I loved the ending as well, especially the fact that Steen sold his leg and yelled out in pain the whole time he had Davey locked in the sharpshooter. The match was great and I also liked the post match beat down a lot as well.
****


ROH World Championship Match:
Nigel McGuinness vs. KENTA

The night before this match Nigel had torn his bicep. Kenta went right after it. The fact that I'm pretty sure Nigel was hurt probably helped with Nigel's fantastic selling job but that doesn't even take that much away from the selling job. Nigel looked like a broken man in the opening minutes. The look on his face when he was taken off his feet by a stiff slap from Kenta incredible. Without really being able to use any strikes and limited strength in his arms I wasn't sure how Nigel would be able to actually pull this off. In this case the fact that Nigel's offense was so limited made the match a lot better. I loved that with an injured arm he responded by working the arm of Kenta. This was done really well, the only problem I really had with it was that Nigel was a heel and the fans really hated him. It was insulting for them to be throwing trash at him after he won. That aside this was fantastic.
****1/4


The last matches kicked ass and everything else on the card was at the very least good aside from a 1 minute match. Not much to complain about, a show worth watching.

Nigel is the man! I heard in the TNA section (yeah, I went there) about a month ago that he is retiring, does anyone know this to be true? I might cry if so. The dude is my favorite ROH wrestler ever.
