bradhindsight posted a topic in January 2017A bit of a divisive match ratings-wise. There's a narrative out there that if you understood the Rocky/Beretta internal story about how Rocky couldn't get the job done, then the match is four stars - otherwise its 3 and 1/4. I completely see that story, and Rocky gets some big kickouts while Trent is KO'd outside after a missed dive. But Beretta comes back into the match, and RPG wins on a fluke roll-up. I'm all for weaving some fantastic story into the action, but this never reached the pre-described fairy tale. It was what it was (and I dug the springboard destroyer by the Bucks early) - a ***1/4 match.
bradhindsight posted a topic in January 2017Here's your Ring of Honor title match sandwiched on the Wrestle Kingdom card. Initially watching this spoiler-free the morning of the show, it had heightened dramatics given the O'Reilly contract situation. So that story was the elephant in the ring throughout. I realize I'm high man on this one, but I really liked Cole here and thought this was an exceptionally sound, good match and a contrast to their match at Final Battle, which was centered around hardcore/No DQ stuff. Cole hits a couple finishers and wins this one clean as a sheet. ***1/2
