ROH Wrestling 7/21/12
Quick Thoughts: Overall a decent episode this week. A really fun opener, a squash and an solid TV Main Event. It was cool seeing SDR and Kingston but the opener really made the show for me.
-Eddie Edwards & Adam Cole vs. Mike Bennett & "Brutal" Bob Evans
Really fun tag team opener; good job of showcasing Edwards and Cole offense while B&B got their spots in as well. Edwards plays such a great babyface in peril its ridiculous. Cole's flying cross body is gorgeous. I know I am in the minority but I love to see a Bennett/Bob and Edwards/Cole tag team and have said it for a while. Cool to see Del Rey.
-The Cole/O'Reilly video package was well done and showed yet again why those guys are stars. It was awesome to see ol' Bruno in top form, he looks very healthy.
-WGTT vs. Fusion DS
Really an extended squash, decent for what it was selling their aggression after losing the Tag Titles. That ending with the guy stopping to save his partner was horribad
Good promo by Haas.
-Kevin Steen vs. Mike Mondo (ROH World Championship)
Look at that damn beer belly
some decent brawling to start and the powerbomb on the ramp was good but the 19-count spot is ridiculously overplayed. Kind of dull in between but Steen selling the blows on the mic was funny; Mondo sold the shit out of that F5. I will say that ROH officials are hell bent on getting Mondo over. Kingston's selling was pretty bad during that brawl and it didn't help that people didn't know who he was til the bandanna came off but it was nice to see him nonetheless.
