It was a gymfest. Final Battle '11 is the pinnacle of Cornette's booking.

Remains as a GREAT ROH show. Fitting to take on the name of one of the most iconic shows in the original Manhattan Mayhem. These crowds in NYC were so jacked for the action. Was I the only one who didn't notice the crowd was "dead" for Davey vs PAC? I recall a reaction...
Danielson is the toughest man alive. Generico & Steen bring out the best and remove the general shitty aspects of the Briscoes. Bless them.
Great little sprint, shame about the dead crowd and the slightly botched finish. SSB looked fab, here's hoping they get more Evolve/DGUSA dates. Anyone else think Generico was kind of heeling it up at times? He had a tinge of cockiness to him in this match, and bent the rules a few times, like tying up Player Uno in the ropes when Generico was the illegal man. Not used to seeing that sort of stuff from him, it was quite refreshing actually.
Why you would put yourself through the torture that is Final Battle 2011 on 3 OCCASIONS is beyond me. I hate the double "main event" with a burning passion. Briscoes/WGTT features the worst booking I've seriously ever seen. I essentially gave up on ROH after seeing that shit.
Still smh at Steenrico losing to the Briscoes in two title matches straight, if there was a team that deserved to get a fall on the Briscoes it was them.
Why'd they give that honor to Strong/Romero on the bonus match of a ppv.
