ROH Fate of an Angel IIMississauga, Ontario 11/13/10
1.) The House of Truth vs. Bobby Dempsey & Grizzly Redwood: **
Zack Gowen & Michael Elgin debuted for the HOT the previous night. This was actually a decent match. The babyface ROH wrestling academy graduates get the win, and Elgin disposes of Gowen after the match per Martini's request.
2.) Trial Series Match #4 – Andy “Right Leg” Ridge vs. Mark Briscoe: **1/4
Match #4 for Ridge & the Trial Series. This was another decent match. Ridge got beat up pretty bad as his chest looked messed up after battling Mark Briscoe.
3.) Women of Honor – Sara Del Rey vs. Jamilia Craft: *1/2
Much like the weekend of shows from October, this was another Women of Honor showcase. A decent affair. Del Rey looked strong.
4.) Winners Get A Future Tag Title Match – El Generico & Colt Cabana vs. The All Night Express: ***1/4
The winner of this match gets a future World Tag Team Title Shot. It was actually a fine match. Kevin Steen comes out and El Generico goes after him. As expected, this led to Cabana getting beat by ANX.
5.) Kyle O’Reilly & Adam Cole vs. The Bravado Brothers: ***
This match features two young teams going at it. A pretty good match. This would be the start of a series of matches these two teams would have over the next year.
6.) Grudge Match – Jay Briscoe vs. Homicide: ***1/2
This came about after Homicide apparently took offense to Jay Briscoe saving him from an ANX beat down at Allied Forces. These two also have a history that dates back to 2004 when it was The Rottweilers vs. The Briscoes as well as 2006 when The Briscoes were apart of Jim Cornette's crusade against Homicide. This was a very good match. Enjoyable to watch.
7.) ROH World Tag Team Titles – The Kings of Wrestling (with Shane Hagadorn) vs. Kevin Steen & Steen Corino: ***1/2
Steen brings out security to guard the entranceway to make sure El Generico doesn't interfere. For a match involving two heel teams, this was pretty good. Steen & Corino held their own against The Kings. Generico shows up through the crowd. This distracts Steen and allows The Kings to pick up the win & retain.
After the match Steen & Generico get into a long pull apart brawl. Cary Silken then announces (via Bobby Cruise) that Generico & Steen are not to be within 50 Feet of each other between now & Final Battle. He also announced that the match at Final Battle would a FIGHT WITHOUT HONOR!!
8.) ROH World Title Match – ROH World Champion Roderick Strong (with Truth Martini) vs. Christopher Daniels: ****
I don't recall these two having much of a singles history although they did wrestle tag matches against each other in 2006. This was a very good World Title Match. Although you knew Daniels probably wasn't winning the title, he & Strong managed to put on a really great match that proved to be a solid conclusion to the show.
This show was definitely an improvement over the show from the night before in Dearborn. You had a great main event for the World Title, a major development in the Steen/Generico story, and several undercard matches that were good to very good, making for an enjoyable card overall.
