2) Top Prospect Tournament - First Round
QT Marshall vs Mike Sydal ~ *1/4
3) ROH Tag Team Championship
The Briscoe Brothers(c) vs C & C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) ~ *
Opener was short, decent, but at least on the lines of FUN. Deserved a bit of a higher mark for me only b/c of how much I got a kick out of it. Worked exactly how it needed to be worked. Fish continues to make me tolerate O'Reilly while they tag. Points for that too.
Marshall is nothing. Sydal shined. Of course he did the job. Marshall is still nothing. Match was only watchable thanks to Sydal.
It's a Briscoes match. It wasn't good. Didn't take long before any semblance of structure fell away and a whole bunch of moves started being hit for the hell of it. To quote Kevin Kelly "I've completely lost track of everything in this match"
. Dare I say, truer words were never spoken.
Ok, while it wasn't much of a noteworthy show from a wrestling perspective, the product did most things right. They brought all of the storylines to light and put over next week's show well. I got some interest in the Top Prospect tournament. Always fun to see new talent get a chance to shine, only I fear all of the weaker workers will be the ones to get the rub. Bleh @ that. Charlie Haas' new gimmick is both awful and hilarious. I'm gonna say that's better than just being awful. Even if laughing at him isn't the intended reaction. Lethal's push towards the World Championship rages on. That's there. Oh, and Matt Hardy cut a little promo I got a kick out of. Looking forward to his match form the 1/26 show. This show lacked Adam Cole. Luckily, he has a match upcoming so
