ROH Tag Title Classic II Review

The American Wolves face the Kings of Wrestling for the First Time Ever!

ROH Tag Title Classic II

Plymouth, Massachusetts 12/17/10

1.) Kenny King vs. Adam Cole: **3/4

A fairly solid opener featuring two of Ring of Honor's rising stars.

2.) Colt Cabana vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett: **

This was bad when Bennett was still "eh" (He has improved greatly since then). Didn't like the finish that much.

3.) Trial Series – Match #5 – Andy “Right Leg” Ridge vs. ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels: **3/4

The fifth and final match of the Trial Series for Andy Ridge. Probably the best match of the series. Daniels was the perfect guy to put up against the rookie.

4.) Pick Your Poison Rematch – Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Kevin Steen & Steve Corino: ***

This is a rematch from the Dayton show from the previous April. About as good as their first match. It was fun. Decent but nothing overly good. 

5.) Four Corner Survival – El Generico vs. Rhett Titus vs. Grizzly Redwood vs. Ricky Reyes: **1/2

A very odd array of opponents in this one. This was actually very average. If Generico wasn't in this, I'd say this was skippable.

Steve Corino comes out and tries to convince Generico to save him self a beating from Steen the next night. Generico Yakuza Kicks him.

6.) Kyle O’Reilly vs. TJ Perkins: ***1/4

This was a very fun match. Good technical wrestling...what you would expect from these guys.

7.) Non-Title Special Challenge Match – ROH World Champion Roderick Strong vs. Sonjay Dutt: ***

Kenny Omega was supposed to be here and face Strong but he's not here so we get Sonjay Dutt. These two had a match back at Manhattan Mayhem III. I remember that match being better, but this was still decent though.

8.) ROH World Tag Team Titles – 1st Time Dream Match – The Kings of Wrestling vs. The American Wolves: ***3/4

Even though The Wolves probably weren't winning this, it still was entertaining. A very good match, though not as good as I thought it would be.

Overall: 7.25/10

This was pretty much a one match show. Though you pretty much had to expect this, since you had a big show in NYC the next night. There's still a decent amount of good stuff on here though...
