ROH World's Greatest Review

Some of the Best in the World Clash in an exciting Main Event!

ROH World's Greatest
Dayton, Ohio 2/25/11

1.) Jay Briscoe vs. Kyle O’Reilly: ***

This was a pretty good opener. Only went about 8 Minutes, but it had good action in those 8 Minutes.

2.) Steve Corino & Grizzly Redwood vs. The Bravado Brothers: **1/4

Corino says he's teaming with Redwood because he's an inspiration. The Bravados cheap shot him after Corino mentions their grandmother. 

3.) Mark Briscoe vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett: **1/2

This match was...ok. One of Bennett's better matches from this stage of Bennett's ROH career. 

4.) Four Corner Survival – Colt Cabana vs. Rhett Titus vs. Andy Ridge vs. Mike Mondo: **3/4

A nice four corner survival. Not one of the best ones, but not one of the worst ones. Somewhere in the middle. Fast Paced Action.

5.) Non-Title Challenge Match – Christopher Daniels vs. Michael Elgin: **3/4

Think this was Elgin's first full weekend. A decent match here with the World TV Champion. 

Elgin attacks Daniels post-match but El Generico comes out for the save. In the chaos, Daniels takes possession of Truth Martini's Book of Truth (This becomes important later on...). Since El Generico is already out there, we get...

6.) Top Contenders Match – Homicide vs. El Generico: ***

This came about after Homicide laid out El Generico following a Four Corner Survival Match at Only the Strong Survive. This was a good match, but I felt like it could have been better.

7.) Survival of the Fittest 2010 Finals Rematch – Kenny King vs. Eddie Edwards: ***1/2

These two were the final two in the Survival of the Fittest in 2010. This was pretty good. King & Edwards match up pretty well. Sad they didn't face each other again (to my recollection).

8.) “World’s Greatest Collide” – Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas & Davey Richards vs. The Kings of Wrestling & Roderick Strong: ****

So this is the coming together of a few feuds that have been going on recently. It was a pretty good six-man tag. It was a great main event for this live event and a great built up to the matches that are coming in the future.

Overall: 7.5/10

This was a pretty decent show. The Main Event is of course, the reason to get this, but their are several undercard matches that are pretty good as well, making for a solid B-Show.
