ROH - Respect Is Earned II

Eddie Kingston vs. Jigsaw - **

Philadelphia Street Fight
Jay Briscoe vs. Necro Butcher - ***1/2

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Ruckus vs. Jigsaw - ***1/4

Davey Richards vs. Claudio Castagnoli - **3/4

Six-Man Tag Team Match
Sweet N Sour Inc. (Chris Hero, Adam Pearce, & Eddie Edwards) vs. Brent Albright, Delirious, & Pelle Primeau - ***

Fight Without Honor
Roderick Strong vs. Erick Stevens - ****1/4

ROH World Championship
Nigel McGuinness(c) vs. Go Shiozaki - ***3/4

ROH World Tag Team Championship
Tyler Black & Jimmy Jacobs(c) vs. Bryan Danielson & Austin Aries - ****1/4


Overall: 8.25/10


- Once you get the past the really weird opener this show had a great flow to it. It's perfect for fans of hardcore wrestling. Tons of blood, gore, and brutal spots in the Philly Street Fight with scissors involved and just an awesome FWH with an incredible ending and the most I've ever seen Roderick bleed.

- The Steenerico/Vulture Squad tag match was barely 8 minutes but my god was it wrestled at a blistering pace. Everything was just so fluid and pulled off perfectly. Excellent way to kick off the PPV portion of the show.

- The two title matches were great. I really dug the stiffness in Nigel/Go but down the stretch there were some odd moments where things were set up too obviously or they just looked weird. Besides that a great defense from Nigel, couldn't help but laugh when he hit the last jawbreaker lariat, took his fuckin head off. The main event was great too. A little disjointed at times but you could feel the hatred between Aries & Jacobs and the last few minutes with Danielson & Black were just tremendous. Hell of a show top to bottom.

The last PWG order I did (months ago) I got charged by customs, which was weird as all the previous orders I had been placing with PWG since I started buying their DVD's from their site instead of ROH, I never used to get charged. I ended up buying the few remaining DVD's I was behind on from Highspots a few weeks back when they had a sale, even though I knew i'd get charged by customs.

I also surprisingly got charged by customs for my last DGUSA order too. That's never happened to me since i've been ordering DGUSA & EVOLVE DVD's.

I think customs have had it in for me since my last SMV order, in which I ordered like nearly 30 Chikara DVD's (in a 25% off sale) and got charged like 35 by customs.

I'm just hoping when my RF order comes, I don't get charged again.

In the process of watching Chikara's It's How You Play the Game and Chuck Taylor vs Archibald Peck was hilarious! Definitely a must see for anyone who enjoys comedic wrestling matches

Nice way to open the show, but imo Davis should've won.

Eh. Even Sami didn't saved it.

Chuck Taylor Invitational: Chuck Taylor vs. Lince Dorado vs. Samuray Del Sol vs. Rich Swann vs. CIMA vs. El Generico - ***3/4

I'm a big Paul London fan (despite him being batshit crazy...or maybe that's WHY I like him) and I've enjoyed the two shoots he did with Kendrick, but what did people think of the Project: Paul London DVD? Kinda tempted to get the download as it's just $10 on Highspots, but I hear it's pretty off the wall. Is it at least watchable?

Well it was a rainy Sunday so I decided to pop in some older ROH shows to kill the time.

Caged Rage

Chris Hero vs. Hallowicked - ***
Very solid opener. Nothing really wrong with the match, and as always, Hero is entertaining as hell. I also forgot about all the Twisted Sister chants at Bobby Dempsy. Good times.

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Rhett Titus - **1/2
A lot better than I remembered, still nothing memorable, but definitely good. One of Rhett's better early matches.

Nigel McGuinness vs. Adam Pearce vs. Delirious vs. BJ Whitmer - **1/4
Served it's purpose with the Hangmen 3, thats really about it though.

Austin Aries, Erick Stevens, M-Dogg 20 vs. Davey Richards, Jason Blade, and Eddie Edwards - ***1/2
Really fun match. Makes me really miss the Resilience. Aries was awesome as always, and I was a huge fan of Stevens and M-Dogg at that time. Also, Eddie's hair was fucking awful back then.

Pac vs. Bryan Danielson - ***1/4
Didn't meet expectations, and I'm sure everyone else agrees, but still a very enjoyable match.

Takeshi Morishima vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brent Albright - ****
After re-watching this, it's probably my match of the night. This was another one that was a lot better than I remembered it.

Jack Evans vs. Roderick Strong - ***1/4
Short. Entertaining, but short.

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Mark & Jay Briscoe - ***3/4
I remember back then these 4 could do no wrong in the ring, and this was another great match that added to their feud. Great way to close the show.

I really, really miss ROH running shows in Hartford at the Expo Center, an awesome building and I always thought it was a really great crowd. These were the days.

Manhattan Mayhem II

Erick Stevens & M-Dogg 20 vs. Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw - ***1/4
Another solid opener. Looking back, ROH had a lot of strong openers back then.

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Mitch Franklin - *
Meh. I get the point I guess.

Hangmen 3 vs. Delirious, Nigel McGuinness, & Pelle Primeau - ***
Nice match, flowed in well with the rest of the show.

Pac vs. Davey Richards - **1/2
The crowd didn't really give this match a chance, which is a shame, because it could've been a lot better, Mitch/Jimmy aside this was the only match on the card I didn't thoroughly enjoy.

Austin Aries vs. Jack Evans vs. Roderick Strong - ***1/4
I loved this match live. I loved everything about it, and re-watching it, it was still a lot of fun.

Ruckus vs. Eddie Edwards - ***
I'm a Ruckus mark, so this surprise appearance in the prior match made my night even better, and then his match with Edwards was a nice, solid match to introduce Ruckus to ROH.

Chris Hero vs. Claudio Castagnoli - ***1/2
Not as good as it could have been, but hey, I enjoyed the hell out of it anyways.

Bryan Danielson vs. Takeshi Morishima - *****
Perfect, perfect, perfect. This is still, to this day, my favorite match in ROH history, and one of my top matches in general. I can watch this match over and over again, and still love it even more.

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Mark & Jay Briscoe - ****1/2
Same thing as the prior night, these two teams could do no wrong, and this match was so much fun to watch. During the show I originally wasn't interested in anything after seeing that Dragon/Shima match, but damn this was enjoyable.

I really miss going to these CT/NY double shots. This was my favorite time as a Ring of Honor fan when I could make a weekend trip out of it and it would be very worthwhile.

Its basically him for a fair while rambling about various things and off his face on some sort of substance.


Also I just finished Wrestleholics. DONT BUY IT. Its just awful. Theres a few amusing bits and a good story or two but its so disjointed. Its just a bunch of random clips with no story at all. Callihan isn't funny in anyway shape or form. I'd actually have preferred if it was Greg Excellent & Adam Cole... Cole was good but Jesus was Sami annoying.


Chikara - Caught In The Spiders Den

1. Francis Kipland Stevens vs Kobald
*3/4

2. 3.0 vs The Throwbacks
**1/2

3. Archibald Peck vs Ophidian
**1/2
Veronica is possibly the worst thing about wrestling.

4. Gran Akuma vs Chuck Taylor
**1/4

5. Sara Del Rey vs Saturyne
**1/4

6. Colt Cabana vs UltraMantis Black
**3/4

7. The Colony, Jigsaw & Mike Quackenbush vs The Batiri, Tim Donst & Jakob Hammermeier
***

8. Chikara Grand Championship
Eddie Kingston vs Vin Gerard
***
