Final Battle 2006 resutls!


Recommended Posts

a) Bobby Dempsey came out dressed as Santa accompanied by elves. The Briscoes came out to attack him and challenged the Kings of Wrestling to a re-match tonight!

1) Jimmy Rave over El Generico, Davey Richards, & Christopher Daniels in a 4 Corner Survival Match. End came when Rave blind tagged Richards just before Generico hit Richards with a brainbuster onto the top turnbuckle. Generico went for the pin, but Rave, who was legal, applied his ankle/leg submission on Generico, who tapped.

After the match, Nigel McGuinness hit the ring and faced off with Rave, slapping him across the face. Rave told the fans he did need to earn their respect.

2) Adam Pearce pinned Ricky Reyes after a shot with the brass knux. Julius Smokes was also KO'd with the knux and carried out.

3) Jimmy Jacobs & Brent Albright over Colt Cabana & BJ Whitmer when Jacobs pinned Cabana. BJ was teasing a top rope powerbomb on Jacobs to the floor thru a table, but Albright broke it up and Awesome Bombed/Razor's Edged BJ over the top rope to the floor thru the table. This allowed Jacobs to hit a senton on Cabana and get the pin.

ROH announced that they would return to the Manhattan Center much more in 2007 and also that the show tonight was a sellout.

4) Jay & Mark Briscoe over The Kings of Wrestling

Post match saw Claudio get on the mic and say he was not going anywhere. Larry Sweeney came out and said that he and Hero made plans because Claudio was leaving. Claudio asked Hero who he would choose, and Hero chose Sweeney.

Samoa Joe came to the ring and told Claudio to get out.

Joe called Mitsuharu Misawa an "old man" and called out other NOAH wrestlers. This brought out Nigel McGuinness, who said he would answer the challenge to NOAH and fight Joe on 2/16 in NYC.

Jimmy Rave came out and Joe slapped him. Joe said that since Rave and Nigel have issues, they should fight later and they both agreed.


5) Jimmy Rave over Nigel McGuinness via tap out after Rave's ankle submission. Rave called out and challenged whoever wins the ROH World Title Match to face him on 2/16.

6) Shingo & Cima & Matt Sydal b Austin Aries & Roderick Strong & Delirious when Cima pinned Deliriuos with a Karl Gotch piledriver

7) Homicide b Bryan Danielson in about 25:00 to win the ROH title. Pearce & Hagadorn attacked Homicide at one point and it was stopped, but the ref refused to end it on a DQ. At another point, Danielson wouldn't break on the ropes and again the ref refused to call a DQ. Danielson got his foot on the rope after a cop killa. Homicide finally won with a high low clothesline. Big post-match celebration of the title change.

Няма какво друго да кажа освен F'N AWESOME!HOMICIDE!HOMICIDE!Публиката накрая е била направо невероятна.

Страхотно шоу е било.Не съм очаквал Bryan Danielson да сдаде титлата,напротив мислех,че ще го държат шампион колкото Joe някъде.Homicide шампион на ROH...oще по-малко съм го очаквал,но съм много радостен,тъй като едва ли има по-заслужил от него след всичко,което сътвори през годината.

More ROH 12-23 reports

by Bill Treadway and Matt Feuerstein

From Bill Treadway:

Super hot crowd tonight at the Manhattan Center. Chanting Homicide and F*** John Cena prior to the start of the card with great passion

Santa Claus came to the ring with his elf and a giant sack. The present in the sack turned out to be Pelle Primeau and the trio gave away T-shirts until the Briscoes came out and beat the living crap out of them to a tremendously loud pop from the crowd.

1. Jimmy Rave won a Four Corners match over El Generico, Christopher Daniels and Davey Richards. A strong ***1/2 opener. Rave didn't do all that much in the match, so you could tell something else was going down later involving him. Daniels and Richards worked a stiff, brutal style and Generico more than held his own with them. Finish saw Rave take advantage of Daniels finishing off Generico and clasping a anklelock for the submission.

2. Adam Pearce and Shane Hagadorn came out and vowed that Homicide wouldn't leave Manhattan with the ROH World title. Out came Julius Smokes, who vowed that Reyes would choke out Pearce. Decent, quick match with the same boring finish as usual with Hagadorn/Pearce: illegal weapon used to get quick pin. Then the dastardly duo laid out Smokes with a spike piledriver. Smokes actually did a good job of selling it as they carried him out on a stretcher.

3. Jimmy Jacobs and Brent Albright won the Grudge Tag match over Colt Cabana and B.J. Whitmer. Match started out as a brutal, stiff brawl and just kept going with no let up. Vinnie Mac made a huge mistake letting Albright go. The man can brawl and wrestle- he would have been an asset to WWECW Lite. Albright seemed to put on a demo on what he could do- he gave BJ a Mike Awesome powerbomb through a table that BJ sold to the hilt. He gave Cabana the Benoit-Eddie triple suplex deal that led to Jacobs getting the win. Excellent brawl . ****

4. It was time for Chris Hero's farewell to Claudio Castagnoli. Hero came out with some short guy named Sweet and Sour. For a minute, I thought Paul Williams decided to get into the wrestling business, but luckily I was wrong. Anyway, the Briscoes came out and wanted revenge for their loss the previous night in Hartford to the Kings of Wrestling. They got their wish. What a great tag team match- this is far better than any tag title match on WWE or TNA. It started very slowly, but they built it up to the point that it became a fantastic, give and take match. Lots of near falls, each man got to deliver their brutal finishers. Finish came when Claudio grabbed his briefcase to clock a Briscoe but instead whacked Hero, which allowed the Briscoes to get the win. After the match, Claudio got on the house mic and praised the fans and said that after such a good reception, he's going to stick around a little longer and show us what the Kings have in store for us in 2007. Then Paul William...er, Sweet and Sour, got on the mic and said that Hero and himself have zero plans to include Claudio in any 2007 action. Hero then walked out on his now former tag team partner. I smell a singles match for the 2/16/07 return date. ****1/2

5. Samoa Joe came out to address the crowd. He said that he wants ANYONE from NOAH for the February return, even "that old man Misawa" (God I hope so). Nigel McGuiness came out and said that not only will he let NOAH officials know about Joe's challenge, but that HE wants to "kick your fat ass" come February. But before Joe could answer, Jimmy Rave attacked Nigel. Joe swiftly dispatched Rave and suggested that the two have a match. After intermission, the two indeed had a return match. Rave got great heel heat from the crowd and he looked great. Ever since losing that stupid Embassy gimmick, it's been like watching a whole new wrestler. Rave worked a solid match with McGuiness. It was Japanese in style and execution, a slow start that escalated into a string of brutally stiff high spots. Rave got the win by making McGuiness tap clean with the anklelock. About on a par with their match in Edison last month. ****

6. Matt Sydal, Shingo and CIMA won the Dragons Gate rules six man match over Austin Aries, Roderick Strong and Delirious. If Delirious doesn't win Most Improved, it'll be robbery. HE's made great strides in his ring work and personality over 2006. He more than held his own with the higher profile talent. They kept building the strain between Strong and Shingo stemming from the FIP title defense in Edison when Shingo refused to shake Strong's hand. The Dragon's Gate rules must be similar to lucha style tag matches as there were no traditional tagging or holding of the ropes. Aries did a corkscrew plancha onto Sydal, Shingo and CIMA that looked incredible. The whole match was full of insane spots. Delirious did a double headscissors to the two Japanese guys. Sydal did some unbelievable high flying. Loads of high spots galore. Finish came when CIMA did a reverse powerslam onto Delirious for the pin. As close to perfection as anything in this card. ****3/4

7. Homicide won the ROH World title from Bryan Danielson in a 30 minute plus match (so it seemed). The crowd was completely behind Homicide. Match started slowly and was very technical. I always said that Homicide was ROH's version of New Jack, but only 1000 times better and his mat work was the reason why. It was slow but never boring. Then at the 10 minute mark, Pearce and Hagadorn come in for a DQ finish that the crowd HATED. They were PISSED. Out of nowhere Monsta Mack returned to ROH and with Julius Smokes, eliminated Pearce and Hagadorn from the picture. As the ring announcer was about to announce the finish, ref Todd Sinclair shouted out that there was no way he was going to let this match end with a DQ, so he restarted the match. Dragon had left, so he came back and the match continued. It picked up into a faster paced, give and take battle. Each man worked on the others' weak shoulder and attempted to get the win through painful submissions. Danielson gave Homicide the cattle mutilation THREE TIMES but Homicide broke out of it each time to a huge pop. Homicide then gave Danielson the Cop Killa but Danielson kicked out. Then Homicide hit a powerful looking lariat for the win and the championship. Joe came to the ring and embraced Homicide. All the face talent came out, security and even the owner came into the ring for the celebration. Danielson presented Homicide with the belt and shook his hand. ****

From Matt Feuerstein:

ROH Results – Final Battle 2006

December 23, 2006

The Manhattan Center – New York, NY

Recap by Matt Feuerstein

This was another packed house, and the crowd was rabid, chanting “Homicide” several times before the show started. The crowd in the same building on September 16 were called the best crowd in ROH history. This crowd was hotter.

The show opened with Santa and his Elves (Pelle Primeau and Mitch Franklin) throwing out t-shirts to the crowd, until the Briscoes hit the ring and destroyed them to an unbelievable pop. The Briscoes challenged the Kings of Wrestling to a rematch tonight.

Jimmy Rave d. El Generico, Davey Richards, and Christopher Daniels when he made Generico tap out to his new half-crab finisher. Generico and Richards were the standouts here. Generico was extremely over from the get-go, and did a lot of comedy getting the crowd to chant “Ole!” Richards and Daniels also had a good time by hitting a stiff move on Generico, and getting the crowd to chant Ole. It broke down into Daniels, Generico, and Richards hitting big moves on each other to great crowd heat, while Rave hit on the outside. Generico hit his sick top-rope brainbuster onto the top turnbuckle on Richards, but before he did Rave tagged Richards. Generico went to pin Richards, but Rave snuck in and got his submission finisher on Generico, leading to the top out.

After the match Nigel McGuinness hit the ring and he and Rave brawled.

Adam Pearce and Shane Hagadorn hit the ring. Pearce got on the mic and said that tonight’s show was dedicated to Jim Cornette. He guaranteed that Homicide would not walk out of the show tonight as ROH champ. At that point Julius Smokes and Ricky Reyes interrupted him. Smokes called Pearce a “fake ass Repo Man”, which got over as the crowd chanted “Repo Man” at Pearce.

Adam Pearce pinned Ricky Reyes. Reyes attacked Pearce, and the two had a match. It was the lowlight of the show, but the crowd was into it enough. It was short and fine. Reyes had Pearce in the Dragon Sleeper, but Hagadorn distracted the ref. This allowed Pearce to hit Reyes with brass knucks and pin him. After the match, they hit Smokes with a Spike Piledriver, giving him a reason not to come out with Homicide during the main event.

Brent Albright and Jimmy Jacobs d. Colt Cabana and BJ Whitmer when Jacobs pinned Cabana. This was the token brawl of the night. There was a segment of the crowd that turned on it early, but they were quickly shut up and the crowd was into it down the stretch. Two highlights were Jacobs hitting the Contra Code on Cabana, and immediately springing into a spinning headscissors on Whitmer. It was really impressive. The other big spot was Albright powerbombing Whitmer from the ring through a table on the floor. After that spot, Albright hit 5 or so German Suplexes on Cabana, followed by Jacobs hitting a top-rope senton for the pin. After the match Whitmer sold the powerbomb for a long time, and was helped to the back.

The Kings of Wrestling came out, and Hero introduced his new “agent”, Larry Sweeney. The KOW, and especially Claudio (since tonight was supposed to be his last match), were very over. The Briscoes then attacked, and the match got underway.

The Briscoes d. The Kings of Wrestling when Mark Briscoe pinned Chris Hero. This match was a highlight of the show. This was pretty much a big-moves tag match, but it was an awesome one. The match was relatively non-stop, and there was just as big of a KOW contingent as there was a Briscoes contingent. The crowd was going nuts down the stretch, with “ROH” and “this is awesome” chants. At one point Jay had Claudio on his shoulders, with Hero on the floor. Mark hit a rana on Claudio, while at the same time hitting a splash on Hero. They traded big moves, including Mark hitting a cutthroat driver on Claudio, and Jay hitting a J-Driller on Hero. The finish saw Claudio go to hit a Briscoe with the briefcase, but he moved and Claudio hit Hero by mistake. They knocked Claudio out of the ring, and The Briscoes hit a doubleteam Shooting Star Press/legdrop onto Hero for the pin. This match got over huge and the crowd gave a great ovation at the end.

After the match, Claudio said it looked like he’d be staying for a while, and the KOW would be better than ever in 07. At that point, Sweeney grabbed the mic and said he and Hero and big plans for 07, and Claudio wasn’t a part of them. Claudio said that Hero would pick him over Sweeney, but Hero walked out with Sweeney.

After this, Joe hit the ring and apologized for not being able to wrestle, but he wanted to challenge anyone from NOAH to a match in NYC on February 16. He mentioned Morishima, Marufuji, and even Misawa by name, and then mentioned Doug Williams or Nigel McGuinness. Nigel came out and challenged him for 2/16. Rave attacked Nigel from behind, and Joe slapped him hard in the face. Rave tried to get away, but Joe grabbed the mic and said Nigel and Rave should fight tonight.


Jimmy Rave d. Nigel McGuinness by submission. This was in the death spot on the show, and the crowd was dead for the first 8 minutes or so, but they crowd the crowd with them with a hot final 10 minutes of nearfalls. Nigel hit a bunch of lariats, and a Tower of London onto the apron, but Rave kicked out of everything. Finally, Rave slipped on his new submission and the got the tap out to a big pop. Very good match.

Cima, Shingo, and Matt Sydal d. Austin Aries, Roderick Strong, and Delirious when Cima pinned Delirious. This was your usual Dragon Gate-style non-stop big highspots match, and it was a great one. The crowd was going nuts. It’s difficult to list all of the great spots, but one highlight was Roderick hitting the hardest looking flying boot to the face that I’ve ever seen, and Matt Sydal hitting a sunset flip bomb after standing on Roderick Strong’s chest. Delirious got his Cobra Stretch on Shingo to a big pop. Cima got a few big nearfalls on Delirious, before finially getting the pin. There was a huge ROH chant after the match, as well as a please come back chant.

Homicide pinned Bryan Danielson to become the 8th Ring of Honor World Champion, ending Danielson’s 14-month-plus reign. These two guys had a tough act to follow, but the crowd was hot for it from the start. They did some chain wrestling early, with Dragon usually getting the edge. After just 8-10 minutes of exchanging reversals, Homicide hit the 3-amigos, and went to the top for a frog splash. Adam Pearce and Shane Hagadorn hit the ring and hit a shoulderbreaker on Homicide. Todd Sinclair called for the bell and DQ’d Danielson to a huge chorus of boos and a bullshit chant. The announcer was about to call the match for Homicide, when Sinclair stopped him and decided that there was no way he’d let this match end by DQ. He restarted the match to a huge pop and even a “Sinclair” chant. This might sound dumb on paper, but it got over huge, and played off of Sinclair “screwing” Homicide during his last title match in June. After the match restarted, they got off hot and heavy. Danielson went after Cide’s shoulder’s. Cide hit the tope con hilo and flew into the crowd. Cide got a bunch of shoulder submissions on Danielson to big heat, but Danielson kept escaping. Danielson hit a somersault dive into the crowd on Homicide. Danielson went for the top rope belly-to-back, but Homicide reversed it into a crossbody for a nearfall. Homicide got on the STF, but Danielson escaped. Danielson went for his elbows to the head, but Cide escaped. Danielson locked in the chickenwing but Cide escaped. Homicide went for the copkilla, but Danielson got out. Danielson locked in the Cattle Mutilation, but Homicide escaped. Danielson hit a tiger suplex for two. Homicide kept escaping the cattle mutilation. Danielson hit a low blow, and then got a small package for a great nearfall. Homicide finally hit the Cop Killa, but Danielson got his hand on the rope to a huge pop. Finally, Homicide hit the lariat for the pin, and one of the biggest pops I’ve ever heard, and that includes Kobashi in ROH.

After the match Samoa Joe, Colt Cabana, BJ Whitmer, Julius Smokes, Ricky Reyes, Allison Danger, and other members of the roster hit the ring to celebrate. Danielson hesitantly handed over the belt and the two shook hands to another big pop. After Danielson left, Homicide gave a speech and dedicated the win to the fans. Afterwards, “Ballin’” played, as everyone danced and celebrated in the ring. It was quite the scene.

I feel that this show was even better than Glory By Honor V Night 2 in the same building in September. There was no overwhelming MOTY like Dragon vs. KENTA, but there was 3 great matches, another really good one, and nothing was close to bad. The crowd was incredible hot,, and the post-show celebration was incredible. One of the best shows I’ve ever had the privilege of attending, and a fitting end to the year. Even if Homicide’s reign is unsuccessful, this moment was worth it. The only thing I wish was that there was a bigger tribute to Danielson after his amazing reign, but they didn’t linger on him enough for that to happen, as he left immediately after shaking Homicide’s hand.

Still, an amazing night.

Шоуто е било невероятно! Със сигурност ще се гледа като излезне! Победата на Himicide въобще не ме учудва. Бях убеден, че той ще вземе титлата от Daniels още откакто обявиха мача между двамата за Final Battle, а това стана преди няколко месеца!

Лично на мене тия рейтинги ми изглеждат бая натокани.Айде то излезе едва ли не едно от най-добрите шоута в историята на кеча.Иначе няма и съмнение,че този евент е доста голяма,свежа глътка след така не толкова добрите евенти преди Final Battle.Това че Homicide е новият шампион беше доста предвидимо,понеже цяла година,той е изграждан за това.Излезе месията за ROH в feud-a им срещу CZW,после победи и във враждата си с Steve Corino,която е легендарна сама по себе си,отгоре на всичко и беше "прецакан" за титлата,а бе добре се получи в крайна сметка.Сега остава само reign-a му да се окаже успешен,едва ли ще се доближи до този на Dragon,но дано ни зарадва за в бъдеще.Другите мачове,както почти винаги на такова голямо шоу,дори не си струва да се споменава,че са много добри.Така че дано това ДВД излезе колкото се може по-скоро.

Нека да има :)

This is quite a bit more like it. A fantastic show from top to bottom. This one’s so great, I’ll let the action speak for itself.

We start off with Santa and two elves coming out to throw t-shirts. This is quickly ended by the Briscoes who absolutely destroyed the elves. They announce that it’s ”Time to Man Up” and that they challenge the Kings of Wrestling to a rematch tonight.

Match 1: Christopher Daniels with Allison Danger vs. El Generico vs. Davey Richards vs. Jimmy Rave

Very nice match. El Generico was physically outmatched by everyone and so relied entirely on speed. Rave was avoiding Davey, and Davey matched up quite well with Daniels. They all worked crisp. The finish saw El Generico hit a wicked Superplex with Davey landing head first on the turnbuckle. The sneaky Rave then put Generico in his leg submission to earn the dubious win.

Jimmy Rave defeats El Generico, Christopher Daniels and Davey Richards (Submission, Leg Lock on Generico, ** 1/2)

Hot opener that gave everyone a very good role in making Jimmy look like a jerk, Generico seem like a good underdog and Davey like an absolute beast. Daniels was an excellent glue man that added credibility to the proceedings.

After the match Rave says he’s after the world title, which draws out Nigel to beat on him.

Adam Pearce is out with Shane Hagadorn and promises Homicide will not be ROH champion. This draws out Julius Smokes and Ricky Reyes.

Match 2: Adam Pearce with Shane Hagadorn vs. Ricky Reyes with Julius Smokes

Not much of a match, but Reyes gets Pearce in the Dragon Clutch, but the ref is distracted by Hagadorn. Again, this leads to a use of brass knuckles by Pearce for the win.

Adam Pearce defeats Ricky Reyes (Pin, brass knuckles punch, *)

Well, it wasn’t much, but it’ll hopefully lead to a Havana Pitbulls mugging… err, match against Pearce and Hagadorn.

After the match Smokes takes a spike piledriver, further stacking the odds against Homicide.

Match 3: Colt Cabana and BJ Whitmer with Daizee Haze vs. Jimmy Jacobs and Brent Albright

Big brawl to start leads to BJ being in trouble. The heels work him over, busting him open a little I believe. The eventual hot tag to Cabana had the crowd hot. Very little silliness from Cabana as he cleans house, but when BJ comes back in, Albright powerbombs him through a table on the floor. Sick, sick spot. That leaves Cabana easy pickings as he falls prey to 5 rolling Germans by Albright followed by a cannonball from Jimmy.

Jimmy Jacobs and Brent Albright defeat BJ Whitmer and Colt Cabana (Pin, Cannonball on BJ, ***)

I love BJ and Jacobs against each other. A beautiful pure brawl and BJ needed help to the back after. Hopefully he’s okay. I can’t wait for the Fight without Honor to end this one.

Match 4: The Kings of Wrestling with Larry Sweeney vs. The Briscoes

The show kicks into high gear here and doesn’t stop. This is perfect tag team wrestling. The Briscoes started out with some great high risk stuff. Jay played Ricky Morton for quite a bit letting the Kings get their offense in… then they really got going. Quick tags, near falls, insane moves. The finish saw the Briscoes push Hero in the path of Claudio’s briefcase, followed by him taking a Shooting Star Press and Guillotine Leg drop combo from the Briscoes.

The Briscoes defeat The Kings of Wrestling (Pin, Shooting Star Press/Leg drop combination, **** Ѕ)

The epitome of tag team wrestling.

After the match Claudio announces he’ll be sticking around but is ditched by Chris Hero who has other plans with his new agent, Larry Sweeney.

Samoa Joe comes out and tells Claudio to hit the road, which he does. Less than triumphant exit for Castagnoli, but those are the breaks. Joe challenges anyone from NOAH to face him next time at the Manhattan Center, specifically name dropping Morishima, Marufuji and Misawa (please lord let it be Misawa). Nigel comes out and says if no one from NOAH shows, he will. Rave jumps Nigel, but Joe slaps him right out of the ring and they make a match between Rave and Nigel McGuinness for later in the night.


Match 5: Nigel McGuinness vs. Jimmy Rave

Interesting NOAH style match here. Nigel controlled with his pointless arm work to start, but Rave took control with his impact, but unspectacular offense. Nigel regains control and the Tower of London, totally dead as a finisher, gets two. Rave comes back with a Pedigree for only one. A crossface after that by Rave nearly finishes Nigel but he manages the ropes. A pendulum lariat and a Tower of London on the apron each get two, with the crowd buying each as finishes. Nigel hits the elevated lariat, generally a world beater of a move, again for two. Nigel goes for the pendulum lariat again, but Rave moves and puts in his leg submission and Nigel quickly taps.

Jimmy Rave defeats Nigel McGuinness (Submission, leg lock, *** Ѕ)

This made Rave look like an absolute monster but was not without its flaws. Nigel wasted a good bit of time again with arm work that went nowhere. Rave could have stood to spend some time on the leg. I know the story is Nigel’s leg is hurt already, but the whole audience wouldn’t know that, and the leg work would have really helped things along.

Jimmy Rave announces that he will face the winner of Homicide vs. Danielson for the title at the return to NY.

Match 6: CIMA, Shingo and Matt Sydal vs. Austin Aries, Roderick Strong, and Delirious

If you’ve seen any of the Dragon Gate 6 man style matches you know what to expect here. Austin Aries was beat on for a good portion, and then they went absolutely nuts with spots. Great fun and Sydal managed the standing on shoulders counter to Strong. The finish saw CIMA use a cross arm bomb on Delirious for the pin.

CIMA, Shingo and Sydal defeat Aries, Strong and Delirious (Pin, Cross arm bomb on Delirious, ****)

Not as good as the other Dragon Gate matches, but still very good.

Match 7: ROH World Title Match: Bryan Danielson © vs. Homicide

The match followed the regular formula for both men until interrupted by Pearce and Hagadorn. A DQ was called, but Monsta Mack, Reyes and Smokes cleared them out and the match was restarted. Once it was restarted Homicide started off hot, but Danielson took over with arm work and his regular moves like the super back suplex. Cattle Mutilation, elbows, a crossface chickenwing… nothing would put Homicide away, but when Danielson managed to grab the ropes after the Cop Killa, he was still alive. This was not to last long, however, as Homicide nailed a big lariat, hurt shoulder and all, for the three. The crowd exploded and the locker room emptied to celebrate with Homicide.

Homicide wins the ROH title by defeating Bryan Danielson (Pin, Lariat **** 1/4)

I was extremely emotionally involved in the match as possibly the world’s biggest Danielson mark. The crowd could hardly be more pro-Homicide and the celebration with the crowd was really emotional.

In attendance for Homicide’s big win were his mother, Low Ki, and CM Punk. Yes, this was a big deal indeed. Danielson handed Homicide the belt and the celebration kicked off. I hope we get to see him again and Homicide’s reign can live up to the amazing legacy of Samoa Joe and Bryan Danielson. What a fantastic show.
