* O'Reilly is so good at getting the crowd pumped up for a show with his matches. His enjoyable match with Mark just adds to the good openers he's had already (vs. Jay at WG, vs. The Bravados at OTSS, vs. ANX at RvD and FB2010).
* Ciampa/Cole was great. Would of liked to have gone higher but I wasn't into the first few minutes as much as I would have liked to have been.
* Hero/TJP was MOTN for me. Unique chain wrestling early on and unique exchanges throughout the match really made me love it. I also love that they didn't go overboard at all with nearfalls.
* Edwards/Elgin was far and away the best match Elgin has had so far. Very hard hitting and I loved how Elgin utilised his strength advantage during the match.
* Claudio/Davey was really good as expected however I didn't feel like it was as good as their 2009 match.
* The Defy or Deny Elimination really picked up when Homicide got eliminated, and you can tell the crowd thought the same as they were on their feet for the majority of the rest of the match. Major LOL at the fan that shouted "Who's legal?" and Strong responding with "Everybody you asshole".
* A long (around 3 hours and 20 minutes) but great show from top to bottom. 6 matches ***+ and a pretty good crowd throughout the show. One of the better B shows ROH have put on in years.
