Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
I usually don't give my thoughts on the show but the Blind Destiny episode was so good, I just had to.
Jay Lethal/Kenny King: This was better than I expected it to be only because I expected it to be a 75-25 match in favor of Lethal who's higher up on the card but it was completely 50-50 and the finish was booked perfectly in a way to make King look like he's on Lethal's level with Lethal barely squeaking out a win.And that pin transition was perfectly executed.***1/4
Kevin Steen/Adam Cole: This was my favorite match on the show.Steen is absolutely relentless.This match was also booked perfectly with Steen just basically beating the crap out of Cole with Cole getting in a few big moves.I love the both of these guys movesets.I just hate the ban on the Package Piledriver 'cause I feel the F5 is just so anticlimatic of a finisher compared to alot of Steens other moves.***1/2
Kyle O'Reilly/Michael Elgin: While it was still good, this was my least favorite match on the show.I don't like neither Elgin nor O'Reilly.I feel Elgin is overrated by both the IWC and ROH and overpushed and O'Reilly's just annoying.But putting bias aside, the match started off slow and weird.I think O'Reilly look to dominate against Elgin in the first half which shouldn't of been the case.But the match picked up after O'Reilly back suplex Elgin into the guardrail.I love O'Reilly's transitions from one move to another in the closing stretch.Davey Richards is my favorite wrestler but he sounded like a little boy when he was on commentary yelling.***
Overall one of the best episodes I've seen yet.No squashes, no boring matches, just three really good competitive matches.**** for this episode.
