Re: Mississauga, Ontario - "Glory By Honor XI" 10/13/12
The approach/philosophy behind the show tonight was a total 180. I'm not getting excited yet, but tonight was a huge positive. Every match, for the most part, had a clean, decisive finish, and the bullshit was nearly non existent.
Elgin/Steen was entirely setup for overbooking 101, but they eliminated Truth and Rhino earlier in the night, and then Strong was a non factor with the match before it even really got going. I did fear he would come back. However, he did not! Until after the match. I strongly feel the previous idea/regime would have completely overbooked this.
Cole/Edwards and DR/Lethal, the two other most appealing workrate matches, got plenty of time and the previous two ROH Champions jobbed clean as a whistle. DR/Lethal had a main event style match in the middle of the card, and I'm not convinced that would have been the case, again, under the previous approach/regime.
The action just throughout was a lot more consistent than I've seen in months.
Best ROH show since May 2011.
