ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP LADDER WAR!!
Kevin Steen (c) vs El Generico.
Yeah...I'm pretty damn excited. What if Generico can do it? I might not be Mr. ROH anymore, but if he gets the championship for a stint, I'll still be able to mark out. Potential result aside - this is gonna be insane. We all know it will be. #pleasedon'tdie
ROH World Tag Team Championship
Jimmy Jacobs and Steve Corino (c) vs The Briscoes vs Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander.
Interest is decent. I like S.C.U.M. as the tag champs. Coleman & Alexander as the lone challengers would have been better. They've picked up some big and needed wins this year to get momentum and they could put off the ultimate upset here. If only DEM BOYZ (terrible) weren't in the match. But, I guess they have to since they've been there since day one. Ugh.
Adam Cole vs Matt Hardy.
<3 Adam Cole. Hoping he pulls off the upset here. It's non-title so having Hardy win wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. Don't know where this match will go, but it seems to be a random "dream match" is all. Good for Cole getting it on ROH's biggest show. He's got a bright future. Speaking of futures, don't know if Hardy will even be in shape to make it for this match given what happened at that ECW reunion iPPV...
Jay Lethal vs Rhino.
I like both guys. Could be solid. That's all I got.
NYC Street Fight:
Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team vs BJ Whitmer and Rhett Titus.
Yikes. WGTT, that says it all. Don't even think Whitmer's history of making brawl memorable can help here. He generally did have an awesome opponent or two in the bouts. Benjamin & Haas don't qualify under that umbrella.
Jerry Lynn vs Mike Bennett.
I'm not crazy about Bennett. This could work for him though. He has that "WWE vibe". Hope that comes w/o backlash and people get what I mean. I can see him working this much how he worked vs Lance Storm. Lynn is still pretty great given his age. Hope he can bring the best out in this match.
Roderick Strong vs Michael Elgin.
~ About time. Don't like Elgin. Always dug Roddy. It's probably gonna be uber-stiff. My interest here lacks. Like I said, it's about time they get this out of the way. Don't know if Elgin will take the W early on in the program, although I know he's probably gonna walk away from the program with a huge rub off Roddy and back into the World Championship picture. That doesn't please me, but I'll take it of Davey Richards.
Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly vs The American Wolves.
Speaking of Davey. Double yikes. Don't care AT ALL.
Prince Nana vs RD Evans.
This could either be fun or flat out abyssmal. All depends if Peck (Evans) can get something watchable out of Nana. Peck's amazing, but idk. This is gonna be a tall task.
On paper it actually is one of the more collectively appealing shows of the year for ROH. So props to them there. Might be the first time I've said that since Steen won the championship. It's better than their excuse for Final Battle last year. Hated that card and the show wasn't much better. Potential here is a bit stronger. If not only just b/c of the main event.
Also, I like the new ROH World Championship much better than their current horrid one. Never understood why they changed it from the classic 2002 original in the first place. That was so simple and exactly what their championship should have been. I miss it.
