Loved the new intro, actually shows wrestling and looks tem times better than the old one. The graphics are finally great too plus they moved to HD.
Albama Atitude vs American Am-Fishing (Seltzer actually said it) was fun. Basically a squash but AA were pretty good and I wouldn't have problem seeing them again in ROH. O'Reilly and Fish are great and can easily be ROH's Bad Influence, no kidding. The Gereman Suplex outside was sick. Fun match. **1/4
Lethal and Nigel segment was very good. Both are great mic-workers and they did good job here. I love the heat between them and hopefully this'll leads to something.
Marshall vs Sydal was decent, Marshall worked okay as cocky heel and in my opinion Sydal is pefrect for his current role. Marshall looked pretty good here. *3/4
There's too much of Veda Scott. Oh, and too much "ROH On Tour", "Buy this DVD", etc commercials.
Main Event was good TV match but the feed went out couple of times during this one so it kinda hurt this. **3/4
Overall good episode here that hyped Steen vs Lethal very well. Lots of changes and new thing like the Eddie Edwards' Honor Lives commercial.
Lethal and Steen segment was great. Man Lethal is so much better right now than he was a year ago. It was much better than it sounds to be honest, and with the "Did Steen changed?" storyline it worked okay and didn't looked stupid. Can't wait to their match, it's a big defense for Steen and I have no idea who is gonna win this one.
Silas Young vs Adam Page was the best match out of the tourny. Young is a great heel and can be an awesome addition to the ROH roster. I have no idea why Young is not getting booking in the big indies feds as Chikara, PWG and more. Page is good too and can be solid if they'll use him more. **1/2
DAT Charlie Haas promo
: what an awesome segment, the cheeseburger thing happend here. Maybe the most entertaining SBG segment so far. Haas is great.
Didn't cared about Hardy vs Titus.
Whitmer vs Cole was fine. Had it's moments but I thought it'd be better based on the reports. It was very short too. The finish was awesome tho. **1/4
Truth Martini: "I'm telling you, Thomas is going to win this one!" HAHAHAHA Martini was pure gold in this taping. Love what they are doing with him, hopefully he'll chose Young at the end of the tourny. Thomas vs TD wasn't good, it became better towards the end but then ended out of nowhere with random kick. Meh. *1/2
Redwood vs Strong was fun for it was. Wouldn't mind Redwood in this role but god don't think about pushing him. It looks like they're about to start feud between Mondo and Strong and I'm happy with this. We all know that Strong did everything in ROH and now he doesn't have too much to do, so imo he needs to put others over. I'm not saying it'll be as good but the future feud with Mondo can be similar to the one he had with Stevens. Mondo is crazy and will kill himslef to earn the fans respect and Strong have good matches with everyone. If Mondo won't be cheesy like he was in the feud with Bennett the feud will be really good. **
Bennett vs Elgin was good. Don't have too much to say about it, I enjoyed their Killer Instinct match more. **1/4
The Tag Team Gauntlet was lots of fun. Best match from the taping actually. The American Wolves were awesome, they're so crisp in the ring and have an amazing chimestry. The first match with The Bravados was good and I really want to see now real match between them, we needs more of the Bravados in 2013. The match with SCUM was short but I liked what I saw there, looking forward to the future match. The final match with O'Reilly and Fish was great. Glad O'Reilly and Fish got the shot. Haas was great on commantry too btw. ***1/4+
Truth Martini: "I had a party with the hooplahotties in the back.. Kevin Kelly smell my fingers if you don't believe me"
Taven vs ACH was good, ACH looked fantastic there and his dive was frekin' crazy. Taven looked solid as always and these two had a good bout. Wish it was longer. Hopefully the match with Roddy in Cincty will get decent time. **1/2
Enjoyed the Hardy, Nigel and Cole segment. Hardy continue to be a douch and this time he said Nigel is jelous of him because he was in the big one unlike him, it was a great note that got big heat.
MisChif vs Athena was enoyable WOH match, sick finish. The stunner from the top rope was awesome too.
Really enjoyed the Main Event because of some freash match-ups. ROH needs to do more matches like this. The match had the typical brawling in the begining but then they got into the ring and the pace was slower. Steen actually jumped from to the top rope outside with his Senton, that was awesome. For some reason I remebered that the faces won so it was a surprise, the finish was good and it looks like after the match with Lethal Steen is going to feud with SCUM. Should be great. ***
Overall it was a pretty good taping with good matches and angles here and there. They hyped Lethal vs Steen really good and Steen is looking like he's about to do face turn soon. BJ Whitmer is becoming a major player in my opinion, he's really hot right now. Don't like that last week the follow-up show from the 11YA will be only 2 weeks later and two episodes from the previous taping will feel very out-of-place. Wish they'll tape only two shows or something like that but it won't happen. Anyway it's worth the money and time in my opninion, Check it out.
