I love Hero & his elbows but Jesus Christ there's been some matches where that's been his entire offense and it's awful. vs. Kenny Omega from HDNet for example. Ridiculous. Plus the match with Davey from Only The Strong Survive. So much overkill and ridiculous nearfalls from constant elbows.
Kenny King & Rhett Titus vs. Erick Stevens & Matt Cross - ** 1/4
Bryan Danielson vs. Mike Quackenbush - *** 3/4
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Jerry Lynn vs. Brent Albright - ** 3/4
Falls Count Anywhere Jimmy Jacobs & Brodie Lee vs. Tyler Black & Necro Butcher - ** 1/2
Austin Aries vs. Roderick Strong - ***
Dream Partner Tag Team Match KENTA & El Generico vs. Nigel McGuinness & Davey Richards - *** 1/4
- Danielson/Quack is pure wrestling bliss. Phenomenal in-ring storytelling, excellent matwork, and GREAT selling. Really, really enjoyable match that could've been something special had it gotten more time. MOTN by far.
- Thought the 3-way was a lot of fun. I loved Claudio's Very European gimmick & his constant need to avoid Albright was good. Lynn had a slew of nice spots & the ending was clever.
- Aries/Strong was a disappointment for me. I liked what they were going for in Aries avoiding all chops and backbreakers in the first half of the match, but if you take those two things away from Roddy he's a pretty bland and average wrestler. It was pretty weird. When he finally hit a chop it was more enjoyable but still nowhere near what either guy is capable of. Finish kinda sucked too. B-show effort I felt like, but it had its fun moments.
- Main event was pretty good but nothing memorable. The KENTA/Davey exchanges were a little ridiculous on the intensity level. Serious question, has KENTA's moveset ever changed? He was doing the exact same things that he was back in '05 when he debuted in ROH. Kinda gets old when you see a handful of matches from the guy. Nigel took that Go 2 Sleep like a total champ though.
