Unplanned rewatch goodness courtesy of the fine folks at dailymotion - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xoj...2#.UMpPQoPF-So

Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black (c) vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico (ROH Driven 2008): I'd forgotten this even existed before stumbling across it yesterday. Steenerico's tag title pursuit was booked to perfection, as evinced by a white-hot crowd that explodes every time the challengers appear to be on the brink & deflates whenever AOTF look like retaining. Classic doubles action gives way to a blistering series of utterly convincing false finishing sequences. A modern-day tag team masterpiece which showcases just how far ROH has slipped in terms of wrestling quality, booking & audience engagement. Enjoy ****1/2

All the Supercard of Honor III talk in the best show ever thread just had to make me rewatch the show:

ROH - Supercard Of Honor III


Go Shiozaki vs. Delirious - **3/4

Alex Payne, Dingo & Bushwacker Luke vs. The YRR (Kenny King, Chasyn Rance & Sal Rinauro) - *

FIP World Heavyweight Title
Roderick Strong vs. Erick Stevens - ****1/4

Relaxed Rules
The Age Of The Fall (Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black) vs. The Briscoes (Jay & Mark) - ***3/4

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. BxB Hulk & Shingo - ****1/2

ROH World Heavyweight Title
Nigel McGuinness vs. Austin Aries - ****1/2+

CIMA, Dragon Kid & Ryo Saito vs. Masato Yoshino, Naruki Doi & Genki Horiguchi - ****1/2


Yup. Fantastic as I remembered it with Strong/Stevens going through their great feud, Briscoes/AOTF on point before The Briscoes started to get stale, Dragon Gate shining as usual and Steen & Generico claiming the title of the best team in ROH at the time, though it's a testament to how great Steen & Generico were as a team that of the doubleshot that weekend that this match was the weaker one.

I'm thinking the 5th is either gonna be Card Subject to Change III (loved Roddy/Willie & Claudio/Ryan) or Ninety-Nine, which I've never seen.
Yeah, I was gonna chuck the Ninety-Nine or One Hundred recs your way. Terrific shows. CSTC III also had Low Ki vs Tozawa. So you can't go wrong with that one.

You own either ASW VIII Nights 1 or 2? Both are must owns. I'd give the lean to Night 1 over Night 2 b/c of the unreal, must see tag between the Nightmare Violence Connection vs El Generico & Ricochet.

Ahh. I see. Well, I'm glad they're allowed to work elsewhere. And do. Felt like Romero & Evans were/are stuck down there until the contract is void.

Great find. Favorited. Dammit, I wished I owned all of the out of print ROH shows. Including SCOH III, after reading KC's review. I didn't watch the whole show, only the final 3 matches. All of which are worth owning alone. Granted, I was in the minority where I thought Nigel vs Aries was great, but not AS great as others. Barricade spot at the end nearly killed all the momentum iirc.

Yeah, I've seen both All Star Weekend 8 shows. Awesome weekend. Own Night 2. Decided to pass on owning Night 1 since I'm getting Claudio/Hero on EIGHT but yeah, that NVC/GenericoChet tag is INSANE. Best tag match of 2011.

I'd credit it as the best tag of the last few years. *****.

Certainly was my PWG MOTY for 2011.

NVC vs Generico & Ricochet was amazing. I preferred both Steen/Generico matches (BOLA Finals & Steen Wolf), Claudio/Generico (BOLA) & Hero/Tozawa (ASW 8 Night 2) to it but that just goes to show the incredible year they had.

It's awesome to see that Driven 08 tag get pimped. Seriously think it might be my favourite ROH tag and that's really high praise but it's amazing. Genuinely a masterclass in tag wrestling imo and how to get a crowd involved in a match.

Chikara Under the Hood IPPV

3.0 vs F.I.S.T - ***1/4
Dasher vs Icarus - **1/2
Jig/deviant/shard/soldier vs quack/green ant/fire ant/assailant - ***3/4
Mr.Touchdown vs ACH - ***1/4
Dev. Corp vs Ice Creams - squash
Batiri vs Spectral Envoy - ****
YB vs some old guys - **
Kingston vs Donst - ***

The show was great accept for the last two matches. The main even wasn't much of a main event but it wouldn't have seemed so bad if it wasn't following the disappointing CdP match.

BOLA finals is a close second. My word the drama that came with it. Unbelievable. Generico & Steen are so prime.

I'll make time to relive that match. It was about the greatest moment I experienced watching ROH. Being the crazy Generico nut job fan that I am. After all the championship shots, they finally got their vindication. Fans were so jacked for it too. Wonderful moment. I love the irony behind watching the Final Battle hype video - which shows the end of this match - and the eventual pimping of it here. The stars aligned with that one.

CHIKARA Zelda The Great 2012 Review:

Da Soul Touchaz vs. The Batiri - ***
Perfect way to open the show. Da Soul Touchaz were great and I have no idea why they aren't regular in Chikara, they fit perfect there in my opinion. Just a great match and the crowd was awesome.

The Devastation Corporation vs. Garth Algar & Wayne Campbell - SQUASH

El Generico vs. The Shard - ***1/4+
They kept it short and sweet. Around 8 or 10 minutes of non-stop action and the crowd marking out to everything Generico did. This was probably Shard's best match, his control segments were great and Generico sold everything as he knows. Really enjoyed this.

Team FIST vs. The Swarm (deviANT & Soldier Ant) - ***
Good story-telling in the match with Soldier Ant and devitANT don't want to work together or even give the other chance to shine. The match wasn't only about the story and had good wrestling as you'd exepct from FIST, they are just incredible, very charismatic and great wrestlers. This feud is really bringing to best out of Soldier in storytelling terms, he's always doing great job in these matches.

Colt Cabana vs. Mike Quackenbush - **3/4
The match was beautiful (literally beautiful) but then just like their match in the summer it ended out of nowhere. This just pissed me off. Still great match and with a better finish and more time this could easily reach the 4* territory.

Jigsaw & The Colony vs. Jimmy Jacobs & The Bravado Brothers - ***1/4
Jacobs is another guy that should be regular in Chikara, the crowd loved him and he worked good with Jigsaw. This was your typical very good trios match, really really looking forward to the match with Steen (can't remember the long name), they hyped it a little during the match, Steen in Chikara is just going to be.. wow.

Gran Akuma vs. Tim Donst - **1/2
Eh this was just fine, after series of great matches this felt out of place to be honest. Not bad by any means but should've been lower in the card.

Four Way Tag Team Elimination Match - 3.0 vs. Sapphire & The Mysterious And Handsome Stranger vs. Team FIST (Icarus & Sugar Dunkerton) vs. The Throwbacks - TOO AWESOME FOR STARS
Words can't describe this match, I had so much fun watching this. Dragged a little after the whole Sapphire thing but still awesome awesome match.

CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas Title Best Two Out Of Three Falls Match: The Young Bucks (c) vs. The Spectral Envoy - ***3/4
This was the match of the night as I thought. The Young Bucks played once again great heels and even if their control segment was long I didn't bored simply because they're super entertaining. The first minutes were great and I was surpsied with how fast the first elmantion came. The last minutes were seriously as good as the last minutes of the KOT finals, even I read the results for this show the nearfalls were believeable. Great match.

Overall the show was the best show I've seen from Chikara since KOT. The Chicago crowd helped it too and they were on fire.
