ROH Honor Takes Center Stage: Chapter Two
Atlanta, Georgia 4/2/11
1.) Tag Team Challenge Match – The Kings of Wrestling vs. Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly: ***3/4
The Kings of Wrestling lost their World Tag Team Titles the night before to Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team, and are not in a very good mood as they look to take out their frustrations on the young duo of Cole & O'Reilly. VERY good opener. One of the best in awhile for ROH.
2.) Colt Cabana vs. Dave Taylor: **
So Dave Taylor is being brought in by The Embassy to take on Colt Cabana. Interesting contest as both guys are masters of the British Wrestling Style. A fair contest, but surprisingly short as Cabana won with a roll up.
The Embassy stays at ringside as Prince Nana cuts a promo before bringing out his new project, Tommaso Ciampa, to the ring for his match.
3.) Homicide vs. Tommaso Ciampa: **1/2
Another decent match. Homicide looked better than he had in recent months and Ciampa looked good with the win.
4.) Christopher Daniels vs. Michael Elgin: ***
This one is a rematch from World's Greatest. A fine contest. Some more foreshadowing by Daniels here.
5.) SHIMMER Tag Team Titles – Daizee Haze & Tomoka Nakagawa vs. Hiroyo Matsumoto & Ayumi Kurihara: ***1/4
This is night two for the Japanese Duo. I think this was also the first (and turned out to be the only) time that the SHIMMER Tag Team Titles were defended on a Ring of Honor show. Very good Women of Honor Match. Just as good as the one from the night before.
6.) Grudge Tag Team Match – Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. The All Night Express: ****
The Briscoes jump ANX before the bell and it turns into a brawl. This was actually very good. Wild brawl all over the place. It will probably be remembered best for Rhett Titus and especially Jay Briscoe bleeding buckets.
7.) “SoCal Showdown II” Rematch – El Generico vs. Roderick Strong: ***1/2
This is a rematch from SoCal Showdown II where El Generico challenged then champion Roderick Strong for the World Title. Not as good as that match, but for what it was, it was a pretty good match.
Afterwords a brawl ensues involved Strong, El Generico, Michael Elgin & Colt Cabana. This brings out Daniels, who in still possession of the Book of Truth. He then makes his heel turn official by laying out both Generico & Cabana, officially joining the HOT.
8.) Non-Title Dream Tag Team Match – Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas vs. The American Wolves: ****
Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team's newly won World Tag Team Titles are not on the line in this match. This was a pretty good tag team main event. Started a little slow, as WGTT matches usually do, but got better down the stretch. Miscommunication between The Wolves leads to a WGTT win.
This one wasn't as good as the show from the night before, but it still had a lot of good stuff on it. The first half had a really good opener but some mid-card matches that were just decent. The second half had some really good matches. A nice way to finish off the weekend for ROH.
