Jayís game plan was to escape at any chance he got because he knew he couldnít beat Joe straight up. Joe gave him the beating of a lifetime as a result and Jayís ultimate plan backfired.

Winners- Austin Aries and Roderick Strong ***1/2 ( I felt that forty minutes was way too much time for this match. As each entrant came in, the match seemed to stall at points and it felt as though they were wasting some time until the next series of spots after a new entrant came in. It caused the match to drag significantly. That being said this was still a very good brawl with the performance of Shelley being outstanding. I could watch Abyss toss people around for days and Evans was an absolute maniac for the short amount of time he was in the match. )

Winner- Homicide ***1/2 ( As a match, it is fine but this was storytelling at its finest. These two hate each other so although Homicide brutalized him, Cabana refused to go down to him no matter how bad Homicide beat him down. You naturally felt the hatred hear and made you want to see what the hell was going to happen the next time they met. )

Winner- Colt Cabana ***3/4 ( This was a great blow off for months of storyline, with the interference from Haze, Whitmer, and Albright making sense and I loved some of the spots such as Cabana outsmarting Jacobs by pulling out his spike and the scissors getting stuck in the turnbuckle only to be used later in the match. Again, there were some no selling issues and I wasnít a fan of the big ladder spot, as it seemed pointless in the grand scheme of the match plus it too forever to set up. But this was still an excellent blow off. )

Winners- Kevin Steen and El Generico ****1/4 ( This was an awesome brawl. Both teams relentlessly beat the hell out of each other and put together some tremendous spots where someone from one team would be so preoccupied with a member of the other team that their partner would catch them off guard and take them out with a sick maneuver. This was total insanity and a great chapter in one of ROHís best feuds ever. )


The 411: This was a great collection of matches that showed that ROH put some of the most spectacular and violent matches around despite their known reputation for pure technical wrestling. The great thing about this set is that it showed how great ROH is at setting up and putting on blow offs to feuds. All these brawls were either the final chapter of a major feud where the violence was necessary or the brawl was violent but yet did not satisfy the ending of a feud so they would have to take things up a notch down the road. I would recommend this DVD, especially to someone who is new to ROH and wanted to see just a glimpse of what they did back in the early years.
411 Elite Award
Final Score:  9.0   [  Amazing ]  legend
