ROH - No Escape
1. Mike Bennett vs. Andy Ridge (***1/8)
Fantastic stuff here. Right Leg and The Prodigy have a really special chemistry, this is what top quality wrestling is all about. Absolutely two of ROH's top prospects at the moment, and I'm totally welcome to the possibility of a lengthy feud between these guys.
2. Kenny King vs Mark Briscoe (**1/2)
A solid if unspectacular encounter here.
3. Rhett Titus vs. Jay Briscoe (**)
More of the same, nothing noteworthy here.
4. The American Wolves vs. Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly (***3/4)
This is a great one. In spite of how unpolished Cole and O'Reilly are, this will go down as one of the better matches of this year. A true testament to just how remarkable Edwards and Richards in the ring. Not just anybody could get a match this great out of such an inexperienced pair.
5. Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs. Michael Elgin and Chase Owens (*1/4)
6. Chris Hero vs. Colt Cabana (*3/4)
Yawn. Pretty dull really. Cabana has been stale for God knows how long, and Chris Hero basically needs to be confined to tag action to mask how flawed he is as a performer. Both could officially depart for McMahonland tomorrow and I wouldn't give a flying fuck.
7. Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team vs. The Bravado Brothers (**1/2)
Not a bad match at all. In fact, it's very good. Shelton and Charlie have just been so great thus far in ROH. Every time they're on the card, you know you're gonna get your money's worth. They've turned out to be a wonderful asset to the company, you'd have to be blind or ignorant to think otherwise.
9. Steel Cage Match: El Generico vs Roderick Strong (**1/16)
Good for what it was, I suppose. Rod Strong and Truth Martini are a horrible combination, though. Truth is just too similar to Don Callous, and it wasn't a good gimmick 14 years ago. Roddy as a main event level competitor is somewhat laughable as well.
Note: I only rate matches on a scale of 1 to 4.
