Overall Thoughts – This was another excellent show but yesterday’s was slightly better. The crowd really wasn’t as hot as they were yesterday and I think the 1 PM Start time had something to do with it. The show kicked off with the Opener of the Year so far KOW/AC & KO which was really fun. These two teams never disappoint and if this was given some more time I could definitely see this match being great. I definitely want to see a rematch from these two teams in the near future. Cabana/Taylor which was the weakest match of both shows, but Cabana really tried to keep the crowd into it. Ciampa/Homicide was good; Homicide is really starting to get back that Indy feel to him. Daniels/Elgin was good, Michael Elgin is really underrated and proved he is legit from these two shows; Daniels really worked well with him. The Women of Honors match was slightly better than yesterdays and really fun, I really hope to see Hiroyo & Ayumi back in the US soon. Briscoes/ANX was great, just a bloody brawl and a Street Fight stipulation could have helped this match a lot. I can’t wait to see a No Disqualification type match between these two teams in the future. Generico/Strong was really good and fun, they really work well together. In the end Daniels joined the House of Truth which surprised me but hopefully this leads to a really good feud between them and Generico. The Dream Main Event was Fantastic and really showed that ROH has the best Tag Team Wrestling in the world. All four men got technical as possible and went out there and gave it their all. It truly was a classic Tag Team match. Again, I recommend this and Night 1 to any Wrestling fan, and strongly suggest ordering the Replay if you missed it or getting the DVDs when they come out.
