I'm really no huge fan of either guy.

Hero's becoming more tolerable with his heel stuff and getting away from the pointless matwork some, but Daniels is boring as ever to me outside of TNA...

Hero to me has been the same wrestler for a few years. Nothing worse, nothing better.

Also I would agree that Daniels seems to save his best stuff for TNA these days, although I don't really see anything wrong with that.

I think it's because he mostly wrestles "exhibition" matches outside of TNA, if you know what I mean. When he's involved in a feud and there's actually a storyline built around his matches is when Daniels is at his best.

Well, his upcoming match with Hero is part of an ongoing feud, where supposedly Daniels and Sydal are going to be challenging the Kings of Wrestling for the tag belts in the coming months.

I haven't seen the PWG Daniels/Hero match, but I will agree that Daniel's best stuff has been in TNA, as I haven't been in love with most of his ROH work since he became a bigger part of TNA. Still, he's one of those wrestlers I'm a blind mark for, so sue me B)

Well, I had a really good time at the show.

I walked in in the final minutes of a six man tag consisting of the students. Didn't really see any of the match since I was concentrating on finding seats. We ended up sitting right by the entrance, which was cool, though I was three seats in so I couldn't stick my arm out for high fives.

Shane Hagadorn defeated Pelle Primeau in the top of the class trophy match. It was a pretty clean, decent little match, with Hagadorn using brass knuckles to win.

Nigel McGuinness came out and revealed his opponent to be none other than John Walters! They put on a really good opener, probably about ***1/4 or so. McGuinness won, but afterwards he put Walters over big on the mic.

Mercedes Martinez defeated Daizee Haize in a short match. I was impressed by both women, they really put the WWE women's division to shame (which isn't hard by any stretch, but still). Afterwards, Lacey came out and belittled Daizee.

Christopher Daniels defeated Chris Hero in a really good match (so there). Great crowd heat for the match, and both men were on top of their games. Hero made my girlfriend laugh out loud with his antics, before getting slapped by Daniels. Just a really fun match, probably about ***1/4 once again.

Immediately afterwards, Matt Sydal defeated Claudio Castagnoli in another good little match. What I mostly remember from this one is Sydal flying all over the place, really catching Castagnoli off guard. Sydal won with the shooting star press, another match in the *** area.

Next was the six man war pitting Homicide, Samoa Joe, and BJ Whitmer against Steve Corino and the Briscoes. Right before this match started, they announced that several of the fans were parked illegally on Logan Street and needed to move their cars, so the arena emptied out for a little bit. The match was an intense brawl, though it took place at ringside for several minutes, so it was hard to see and keep track of everything. It didn't get as violent as I had predicted, but I'm sure Homicide and Corino are going to tear the house down tonight in Philadelphia.

Intermission, I took advantage of the Buy Three, Get One Free deal.

Colt Cabana defeated Jimmy Rave in a fun little match. Nothing special here, except the personalities of both Rave and Cabana clashing. Cabana won with a reverse Boston Crab, good times.

Bryan Danielson defeated Delirious to retain the ROH Championship. I'll admit, I was expecting a lot more from this one than what we got. It was very technically sound, it just never really got going. It was also far shorter than I would have expected. This was a case where no one knew Delirious would win the title, but I think the fans really wanted them to put on a match that would make it seem possible, and they didn't quite go for that. I'd say it was about **1/2 or so.

The main event was KENTA and Davey Richards coming up short against Austin Aries and Roderick Strong. All I can say is that they stiffed the SHIT out of each other. Awesome main event, with lots of big moves, delivered very crisply, and Davey Richards came out of this looking like a star. Aries ended up pinning KENTA with the 450 Splash, I think this one is about ****1/2 or so.

It was well worth the trip. They are scheduled to come back in January, though I'm not sure if I'm going to feel like driving to Boston in the snow.

Cool write-up Rowe. That main event sounds all kinds of badass.

Radican, who generally rates matches fairly low said the main event was a ***** match, and the stiffest he has ever seen, including Japan.

Yeah, the more I've been thinking back to the main event, the more I think I probably underrated it. I'd probably be comfortable saying it's ****3/4, not sure if I'd go as high as *****. However, it was a fucking beautifully stiff match that had me jumping out of my seat at times.

BUMP!

I was such a cute little mark back then.

I just officially reviewed this show for da site and rated the main event ****1/4. I was worried when I found this thread that I was going to vomit at any star ratings I'd given, but pretty much everything I said then is about 1/4* around what I said in 2013.

I believe I counted 4 current WWE Talent, and at least 3 TNA talent in that show. Honestly, I miss that era of ROH. The stuff now lacks the aura that they had back then.

Agreed. I appreciate what Delirious and company are attempting to do right now, but ROH hasn't been the same in years. I feel like for whatever reason ROH started really losing their way once the Age of the Fall debuted. They've had great shows and some pretty decent years (creatively) since 2007, but it's never been the same.

I think it's in part the creative, and in part the talent. ROH is a destination in itself. People get to ROH, and feel like they've made it. That changes things. It seems like guys like Joe, Punk, Danielson, etc wanted to make ROH something instead of feeling like they've made it

Was this show really six-and-half years ago?

Sometimes it's easy to bump up stars when you see a show live. Either things seem better because you're getting the live experience, or you look back on the matches with a certain fondness when you watch it back on DVD with that sense of nostalgia.
