BRM Reviews the 7/9/2016 ROH

Post by Big Red Machine » Jul 14th, '16, 21:52

JASON KINCAID vs. DONOVAN DIJAK (w/Prince Nana)- 6.5/10
A good showing from both guys, but this was extremely underwhelming as a way to kick off the fallout from Best in the World.

ACH PROMO- fine.

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: The Addiction(c) vs. Silas Young & Beer City Bruiser- 6.5/10
Wow. They couldn’t possibly do any more to make it feel like they’re just throwing this title shot away. If you’re not going to have them win anyway then it doesn’t matter who they lose to, so why not save this for the next house show in Milwaukee?
The match was fine, but nothing you’ll remember in five minutes. I was just happy that they played it straight pretty much the whole time.

MARK BRISCOE PROMO- good

KYLE O’REILLY PROMO- too much pointless shouting.

THE FISH TANK WITH SPECIAL GUESTS MARK BRSOCE & ACH- huge waste of time. We could have had a good fifteen minutes of TV time (plus commercials, so really about 20-22 minutes) for our main event. Instead we got a pointless talking segment which Mark and Fish treated like a total joke, and only ten minutes of TV time for our main event.

TV TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Mark Briscoe vs. ACH- 6.75/10
We missed the first twenty or thirty seconds of action in this match so we could be shown a picture of the announcers sitting there. Is this Ring of Honor Wrestling or Ring of Honor Talking?
Stuff happened and wrestling moves were hit. Fish came off like a heel on commentary.

This was a fine show in the ring, but it ultimately disappoints because it could have (and should have) been so much more.
