ROH Unforgettable Review

Here's my review of Night Two of Kenta Kobashi's ROH Tour

ROH Unforgettable
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 10/2/05

1.) ROH Tag Team Titles - Tony Mamaluke & Sal Rinauro vs. Dunn & Marcos: *3/4

Eh....this is skippable

2.) Four Corner Survival - Nigel McGuinness vs. Jay Lethal vs. Davey Andrews vs. Claudio Castagnoli: **1/2

Not the best Four Corner Survival, but a decent one. Not much else to say

3.) Jimmy Rave vs. Matt Sydal: ***

Pretty Entertaining, and does its job of furthering the Gen Next/Embassy Feud

4.) Ricky Reyes vs. Derek Dempsey: DUD

Blah.....another Reyes squash. 

The Paul Bearer/Jim Cornette Segment was good (Set up Cornette as a mainstay in ROH in the future)

5.) James Gibson vs. Roderick Strong: ****1/4

Gibson's last ROH match, and boy was it AWESOME. I think they said this was for the title of ROH MVP of 2005, and Strong deserved it.

6.) Jack Evans vs. Colt Cabana: **3/4

Another decent match, nothing really special.

7.) Christopher Daniels vs. Jimmy Yang: ***

Good Match, but I think it could have been a little better.

8.) International Dream Partner Tag Match: Kenta Kobashi & Homicide vs. Samoa Joe & Low Ki: ****1/2

I really liked how this match was set up. VERY interesting tag partners (as they "dropped storylines" for Kobashi Weekend) that proved to be a Great Match. Kobashi goes undefeated for the weekend.

Overall: 8.25/10

The only reasons to buy this DVD were the Two Fantastic Matches (Main Event/Gibson vs. Strong) and perhaps Cornette's Commissioner Debut. Not as good as the show before, but still worth picking up if you can find it.
