ROH TV Review - April 5th, 2014
At the beginning of the show it was announced that we would be seeing matches from ROH's Raising The Bar weekend from last month. I was super excited as I heard there were many great matches on those two shows. The two matches that will be featured tonight are Chris Hero vs. Roderick Strong and ReDragon vs. The Young Bucks!
1) Chris Hero vs. Roderick Strong
As expected from these two ROH veterans, this was an outstanding match. Hero continues to live up to his nick name of being "That Young Knockout Kid" as his kicks and elbows seem to get more vicious each week. Strong once again lived up to his name of "Mr. ROH" by delivering yet another awesome match. Lots of great wrestling here. Both men put in a solid performance and the result was a great, hard hitting battle!
Match rating - 8.75/10
2) reDragon (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) vs. The Young Bucks - ROH World Tag Team Title Match
These are arguably the two best tag teams in the world and seeing them clash in one ring was nothing short of amazing. The Bucks were making their return to ROH here and they certainly came back with a bang. Although Matt had a broken hand and was wearing a cast, The Bucks still put on a flawless match. O'Reilly and Fish targeted Matt's hand throughout the match with various submissions and kicks. Despite that, Matt fought back and managed to finally get Nick in the bout and when he did - it broke down! An incredible exchange between these four men took place with so many big moves. This phenomenal exchange was followed by a series of near falls that had me on the edge of my seat. The Bucks then went for More Bang For Your Buck, but Kyle catches Nick in a Triangle Choke! Nick rolls over and Kyle's shoulders are down 1-2-3! THE YOUNG BUCKS ARE NEW ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Amazing match.
Match rating - 9/10
Overall thoughts: The whole Raising The Bar weekend shows were awesome from what I've heard and these were two of the best matches from those events. Both bouts were outstanding! If you missed ROHTV this week, I highly recommend checking it out. Quality wrestling all around!
