ROH: Fate of an Angel II
1. Bobby Dempsey & Grizzly Redwood vs. The House of Truth 5/10
Good match here definitely better than I thought it would be
2. Andy "Right Leg" Ridge vs. Mark Briscoe 4.5/10
It was an average match, I have not really been a huge fan of the trail series, because to me it just seems like glorified squash matches, especially this match, I felt Ridge did not get enough offense in there, especially facing a guy who is in a tag team. Ridge can be good in the future, but the only trial series match that was really any good was against Cabana.
3. Sara Del Rey vs. Jamilia Craft 2.5/10
I hate seeing these women squash matches, if you are going to be serious about a women’s division, then bring in good talent, I have no interest in seeing women squash matches.
4. Colt Cabana and El Generico vs. The All Night Express 6/10
This was a good match, and I wish it would have gotten more time. I really enjoyed Generico not being himself and just wanting to kill Titus and King, just not a fan of the ending though, especially after Survival of the Fittest where they both interfered in each other matches and now they do it again, just seems like overkill to me, if this was the only time they did it, I think it would have been better.
5. Kyle O'Reilly & Adam Cole vs. The Bravado Brothers 6/10
Enjoyable tag match here, I really enjoy watching Cole and O’Reilly and the Bravado Brothers did some nice things in the match
6. Homicide vs. Jay Briscoe 6.5/10
Definitely Homicide’s second best match since his return. I enjoyed this match, although I did not really care for the ending.
7. ROH World Tag Team Title Match: The Kings of Wrestling vs. Kevin Steen & Steve Corino 7/10
Very good match here I really enjoyed it. It was interesting seeing the Kings being the faces for once, but I thought everyone involved did a great job and this was probably my favorite match on the show.
8. ROH World Title Match: Roderick Strong vs. Christopher Daniels 7/10
I think the match went too long and was boring at points, but the action was pretty enjoyable throughout. Going in, I was expecting a lot more out of the match, but the match was still very good.
Overall: 6.5/10 Disappointing show for what looked like to be a pretty good card on paper, and especially for a show one of their biggest markets. The show was still enjoyable at parts, disappointing was the theme of this weekend, and I would not recommend this show. If you want to check out anything, I would recommend the Tag Title Match, but you could go without seeing anything and be fine.
