- Holy fucking shit at WGTT/Briscoes. (Be prepared, I'm about to get all Meltzer on TNA). Briscoes come out to cheers, WGTT come out to mixed reactions, mostly boos. So it's a double turn!~ WGTT beat the shit out of Dem Boyz for a legit 10 minutes with nothing but chairs and tag belts. Jay's a bloody mess. No bell ever rang, so when the Briscoes are at their lowest point, oh hey, let's ring the bell! Ridiculous. So you get a bit of a comeback, then Shelton "hurts" his ribs randomly and he's actually taken to the back with help from the trainers. Maybe 2 minutes later, EPIC RE-ENTRANCE OF INJURED TEAMMATE! But no one gives a fuck because they're being booed and Charlie has said fuck you to the crowd a few times. Random ref bump, so Shelton grabs a piece of wood under the ring and puts it to use. WHAT THE FUCK? Crowd chants HOOOOO and USA! So yeah, couple minutes later, Briscoes win with a doomsday. Quite honestly the worst booked matched I've ever seen in my life. Jesus christ.
I'm actually wondering with all this hype if I'll actually like Sami, in the end. Both Sami and Moxley were like the lowest forms of shit in the industry for me this year. I couldn't buy any of their hype. But, somehow, when Moxley became Ambrose my hate changed to absolute sheer marking out. Don't ask why I hated him as I don't know, but the Jacobs/Moxley feud and Moxley's promos throughout the scene were one big meh-ball for me. I'm the only one who wasn't sold by him, I guess. I'm weird like that, lol.
I don't mean to overhype anyone, but I dig him so much. All of his work. From the in ring stuff to the stuff on the mic. Same with Moxley since you brought him up. He's so unusual in his approach that I latched onto him when I first saw the gimmick change. Normal Jon Moxley in 2006 is NOTHING compared to when he changed. The change showed his true talent.
2. Tommaso Ciampa vs Jimmy Rave
NYCs hate for Todd Sinclair is fucking stupid and the people that continue the bullshit should just fuck off. They should never wonder why nobody gives a fuck for there stupid fuckwit chants.
3. ROH TV Title - Elimination Match
Jay Lethal vs Mike Bennett vs El Generico
Maria looks great.. Uhh ok.. Odd booking having Lethal retain. It seemed Bennett was a certainty here.
4. Bunch of Stips
Steve Corino vs Kevin Steen
Jimmys ref attire is amazing. Was really hoping Generico and Steen would reunite.
5. Tag Gauntlet
The Bravado Brothers vs Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs FutureShock vs The Young Bucks vs The All Night Express
Disappointed FutureShock lost but happy to see a hopeful Bucks vs Briscoes feud assuming the Briscoes win which they better.
6. Roderick Strong vs CHRIS FUCKING HERO
I hope to god Hero stays.
7. ROH Tag Titles
Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team vs The Briscoe Brothers
Silly booking and way to fucking long. The first 10 or so should have been on TV and had nothing to do with this match...
8. ROH Title
Davey Richards vs Eddie Edwards
Don't hate it as much as everyone else but fuck... None of there moves mean anything if you keep doing this stupid shit. Its the same reason i don't care much for the Dragon/Steen Guerrilla Warfare Match. This and Steen needs to be the Champ in 2012.
I really don't feel that watching this all in one sitting is much of a help with my thoughts on the last two matches and will probably give them a rewatch at some point in the future.
But...UMB doesn't really have "Awesome" Matches that deserve a set.
Sure, he is a cool character, and the interview will be amusing.
But i can't think on my head on one breakthrough match that he had
Like Nick Gage had any matches that are worth seeing? He got a set. Mantis is a great character. That alone has been his driving force. Even during his matches. Which there have been plenty that have been good.
