Winner by Count-Out and Still ROH World Champion- Austin Aries ***1/2 ( Man they worked their ass off here to fight off one of the worst crowds for an ROH match I have ever seen.

Aries says it takes an asshole to know an asshole and he says Cornette is a control freak. Aries says since he has the belt, he calls the shot. He says the sooner Cornette figures that out, they will get along. Cornette says the fans donít want a cowardly champion and he says Aries has his work cut out for him soon.

Here, they wrestled as if this was yet another chapter in their feud and brought the intensity, physically, and drama that made their matches in ROH masterpieces. A satisfying final match between these two and is up to the quality of match these two were known for in ROH. )

Winner by Count-Out and Still ROH Pure Champion- Nigel McGuinness ****1/4 ( I loved the way they played off of the pure rules. They both wrestled a more technical match from the ground and made submission wrestling their priority in order to force rope breaks and build drama for the submissions down the stretch. The finish was a really crappy cop out but it led to their famous Liverpool match. This was an excellent match to kick off one of ROHís greatest rivalries. )




The 411: This is one of the best ROH shows of 2009. You had the conclusion of the best feud in ROH in 2009 with an awesome ladder war and the final chapter of one of ROH's greatest rivalries along with the farewell of two of the most beloved wrestlers in ROH history. The show is loaded with great wrestling and, if you ignore the crowd's ignorance for a couple of matches, a great atmosphere. This is worth your time to check out, especially if your a Daniel Bryan fan.
