* O'Reilly and Cole once again with a great opener. Great showing by Elgin, and an awesome overall weekend for him with this and the match against Edwards.
* Even if you didn't know about the double turn beforehand, you could just see it coming during ANX/Briscoes with the way the match was built around the Briscoes isolating Titus, and leading into the hot tag by King (which was pretty great, the crowd obviously loved it). The brawl afterwards was awesome, both teams know how to bring the hate against each other and it hyped me up for seeing the match in Atlanta again (which seeing live, I freaking loved).
* Generico/TJP was fun but holy crap was it short. I actually liked the (sick) ending from out of nowhere, thought it was better then the two trading loads of finishers and nearfalls.
* KOW/LAX was one of the most fun matches I've seen all year in any company. Crowd ate up everything Hernandez did, from the minute stalling suplex to the border toss on Homicide to his insane dive onto Hero.
* Loved Daniels/Richards and having it pure rules was a nice touch that really added to the match. A lot of unique submission attempts by both men once they had used up all of their rope breaks, all of which were pretty cool. If it wasn't for Davey's botch at the end, I actually think I would of put this above the first match.
* Strong/Edwards or should I say, Chopfest 2011 was pretty sick. I can't believe how quickly Strong's chest was cut from Edwards' chops. The reaction for Edwards winning was AMAZING...I'd honestly say it was the loudest since Homicide winning the title back in 2006.
* One of the best all around ROH shows in quite a few years in my opinion. 3 ****+ and another 3 ***+. Usual great NYC crowd again added to the show.
