Top Customer Reviews
To this release itself, it starts slow, picks up in the middle and kind of cools down at the end BUT there isn't one bad match on here! Let's get to the matches:
C.M. Punk Vs. Raven (Dog Collar Chain Match) - This was the blow-off of their feud as C.M. Punk was looking to make a name for himself at the expense of Raven and push his "straight-edge" philosophy (similiar to his feud with Jeff Hardy in WWE and his short lived group "The Straight Edge Society"). While I've seen worse (no D.C.M. matches Piper Vs. Valentine from the early 80's), it has its moments! Ends when Colt Cabana comes in and DDT's Raven, allowing Punk to get the victory.
Samoa Joe Vs. Homicide (ROH World Title Match) - It begins as basically a 4 on 1 match as Homicide had a manager (can't remember the name) and his Rockwiler partners (one of which was Low-Ki, better known to WWE fans as Kabal) at ringside but the referee quickly banned them for this match. From there, it was a back and forth bout with both men taking the other's best moves! Have to admit, Homicide's tougher than I thought! He even survived Joe's "Muscle Buster"! In the end, Joe would retain his title after using his Kokina Clutch/Chokehold to knock the "187" out for the win! The last laugh would belong to Homicide however as The Rockwilers came back out to beat Joe down! Great match though!
BJ Whitmer w/Daisy Hayes vs. Jimmy Jacobs w/Lacey (Steel Cage Match) - This has to be one of the craziest cage matches ever! This is not only wild by ROH standards, this could've easily have been part of ECW lore! It is that violent! Chairs, tables, railroad spikes and even the dreaded barbwire baseball bat is used in this one! Adding to the mayhem was the respective seconds for the wrestlers though they weren't that much of a factor other than to get their respective charges some weapons! Ends with an awesome backsplash through a table that has to be seen to be believed!
AJ Styles w/Mick Foley vs. Jimmy Rave w/Prince Nanna - In this match, the first to use their version of the face-first piledriver (Styles Clash) will win the match and the loser can no longer use that finisher! This was a pretty intense affair that was mostly athletic as very little weapons were used save a chair and a table at the end. Speaking of the end, it comes when A.J. gives his "Styles Clash" to Rave from the ropes.....THROUGH THE TABLE! Also, check out the post-match speech from Mick Foley. Hilarious!
Jay and Mark Briscoe vs. Austin Aries and Roderick Strong (ROH World Tag Team Title Match) - Hard hitting tag team match! Admittedly, this opened my eyes to Austin Aries as I have only seen his heel work until I watched these recent ROH DVD's! He is tremendous! The Briscoes (no relation to the late Jack Brisco and his brother Gerald Brisco) are an awesome tag team and I've always liked Roderick Strong! If you have an itch to see good tag team wrestling action, this match is for you! I won't give away the finish on this one but needless to say, the winner earned this victory!
Team ROH (Adam Pearce, Ace Steel, Colt Cabana & BJ Whitmer) vs. Team CZW (Claudio Castagnoli, Super Dragon, Necro Butcher & Spyder Nate Webb) - This is just a straight up fight with some very brutal spots! For those that like a wild brawl, this match is for you!
Bryan Danielson vs. Austin Aries - This was part of a best of 3 match series. The matchup here is the third and deciding bout! Both men really showed their wears here. And, as I said in other reviews on ROH stuff, if all you know of Bryan Danielson is his Daniel Bryan persona in WWE then you really need to see one of these releases! And, as I said earlier, Austin Aries is tremendous! Move after move and counter after counter that ends with a victory for Aries!
Roderick Strong vs. Erick Stevens (FIP World Title Match) - FIP was a training ground for ROH wrestlers. These two were their top guys. Roderick, the champion in this match, was the heel but both men got their share of cheers! Admittedly, this match was slow and methotical but does have some nice spots. It does pick up towards the end and sees (in my view) an upset as Stevens beats Strong for the FIP title!
Overall, this is a good release!
Enter ROH. There current TV show has consistently good wrestling shows, with lots of "bell to bell" action as good old JR would say. If you can't find their show, it is available for streaming free on their website.
These DVD collections are a great way to catch up on ROH's past and see recent WWE & TNA stars doing what they do best. CM Punk is shown here in a great dog collar match, as part of his feud with ECW original Raven. Other current WWE stars seen in this collection are Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli) and Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson). More recent TNA stars Samoa Joe, Austin Aries and AJ Styles are also featured in this collection.
Long time ROH stars the Briscoe Bros., Roderick Strong and Jimmy Jacobs are also featured in some classic matches.
Pick this, or any of the other Koch produced ROH DVDs while you can. You will not be disappointed!
